Ever since I was young, I’ve been fascinated by the intricacies that make a house feel like a home. Growing up, I helped my father with various home improvement projects. Over the course of several renovations and remodels, I learned about the elements of high-quality construction that make a home both comfortable and functional.
My love for home improvement inspired me to pursue a career in real estate. Before I became a realtor, I was a middle school English teacher. My experience as an educator has undoubtedly carried over to my current work. The process of buying and selling homes can be complicated and nuanced, but I educate all of my clients so they feel supported and clearly understand what to look forward to next. This means providing clients with clear lists, schedules, and other materials that keep the process organized. It also means bringing local knowledge and expertise.
In 2013, I was a Bay Area transplant and a brand new realtor, so I spent my first year in the Bay Area driving all throughout East Bay, from Richmond to San Leandro until I knew the neighborhoods like the back of my hand. Since then, I've been monitoring the market consistently and have my finger on the pulse of both the numbers and the art of getting top dollar for a seller and getting a contract accepted over ten other offers. I've worked with many different lenders over the years, so I've learned a great deal about financing real estate moves and how to get you to the lender that will save you the most time and money.
Another way I go above and beyond for my clients is by providing accurate and user-friendly home search tools. I use the latest and best systems and tools to ensure that my clients have access to the most current information about houses on the market. In addition, as a Top-Producing agent, I have access to the Top Agent Network (which sounds like a fake thing, but I swear it's real), a portal into all the off-market/pre-market deals in the area.
Home is where families make memories that they will cherish for years to come. I’m constantly in awe of the sense of fulfillment that comes from guiding people through the home buying process and eventually handing them keys to their new home. I hope you will consider me as you make the first important decision of the real estate process – choosing your realtor! I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.
In 2015, Paul and I bought our first home. Let’s just say it in need to a lot more than just “TLC.” We spent nearly two years going through the entire house, remodeling room by room. Together (with the help of my amazing father-in-law), we sketched floor plans, demoed, and built. We got dirtier than we’d ever been and worked harder than we’d ever worked. The result was an enormous feeling of pride in the beautiful home we created...and also a newfound appreciation for a working stove and clean floors. After spending countless hours on Houzz and Pinterest looking for everything from paint colors to light fixtures and window treatments, I fell in love with home renovation, interior design, and real estate. The experience also open my eyes to the ways in which equity and wealth can be built through real estate.
So, in 2019, after a ten-year career in the education sector, I decided to get my real estate license and partner up with Paul. Together, we make a great team. I'm the detail-oriented, super organized, diligent, and fun one. Paul brings more of the local and market expertise, deep knowledge of finance, and fearlessness of going into creepy crawl spaces to check out foundations. We both love property prep and renovations, and making the home buying process as stress-free and fun as possible
Paul and I go above and beyond to ensure that our clients end up finding the home of their dreams. We believe that every home is unique, and I pride myself in finding homes that will be a perfect match for homebuyers.
Jade and Paul met in Hawaii in 2012, Paul was a surfer and teacher who hadn't worn shoes in months. Jade was a returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Azerbaijan 2009-2011), reintegrating back into a world with WIFI (and bathrooms) inside every home. Paul followed Jade to the East Coast, where she earned her Master's Degree in International Educational Development from Columbia University. Shortly after finishing her studies, they packed up their Prius and headed to the Bay Area. Paul quickly realized he was made to be a realtor and was named "Rookie of the Year" and a top-producing agent his first year in the game (2013). Jade helped him with with materials creation and organization throughout the years, but his dream came true when she decided she was ready to join him in real estate. Together, they founded Talbot Team, with the goal of helping families make real estate moves. Paul and Jade have lived in Berkeley and Oakland, but currently live in San Leandro and have two boys. Their second home was a semi-fixer, but they continue to find projects, big and little, to constantly improve the functionality and increase the value of their home. Both Paul and Jade love providing (free) consultations to their friends and former clients who are interested in making upgrades to their homes.
