About Rachel

I specialize in the communities in the 680 Corridor -- Danville, San Ramon, Blackhawk, Diablo, Alamo, Lafayette, Orinda, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Concord, Pleasanton, & Dublin, although I have sold homes from Pittsburg to Alameda. I'm originally from Chicago, Illinois and moved to the Bay Area in 1996. I'm married to a 5th generation Californian and the proud mom of two young men -- one is a musician and my youngest is a student at the University of Arizona. My "other son" is my yellow lab, Toby. As a member of The Doyle Team, I ensure my clients get the best service possible. My business partner, Lisa Doyle, has been in business 25+ years and is the #1 agent in J. Rockcliff Realtor's Danville office. We are also a Dave Ramsey Endorsed Local Provider. Our team always has 6-10 homes that are "Coming Soon" (i.e., not yet on the Multiple Listings), giving you an advantage over other buyers. Our full admin team in the office is here to serve you from start to finish. I love helping my clients achieve their home ownership dreams! Markets may change, but the excitement in a new homeowner's eyes is always there. I'm never happy unless my client is happy! Call me today and let's start your new home adventure!

Languages: English, Spanish

Interests: I love to cook, read, and play with my yellow lab. I have a frighteningly encyclopedic knowledge of rock music.

Very helpful!
Rachel has been very responsive and helpful as my family is exploring options to move to CA. She has worked with our tight timelines and quickly understood what we were looking for in order to offer useful recommendations.

Rachel helped my husband and I find our first home together.
Rachel helped my husband and I find our first home together. We really enjoyed working with her because she was so committed to helping us find the "right" house for us! She wasn't afraid to point out things that could have been potential problems ($$$). Also, she was extremely flexible in her availability to tour homes. We love her "can do" attitude. We toured many, many, homes and Rachel never lost patience with us. After long negotiations we closed and are now settling into our new home. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Rachel to all of our family and friends. As my Husband literally said on multiple occasions "Rachel, you're the best"!!!

Rachel was fantastic!
Rachel was fantastic! She's a pro! We were very impressed by her superior knowledge of the current housing market conditions. Moreover, her attention to detail and marketing skills helped us sell our house fast and for a great price. All while, we, the sellers barely lifted a finger! It was seamless. I have already recommended her to a few of my friends and will continue to do so.

Q&A with Rachel

How do you help buyers to find the right properties for them?
Just like a listing agent has a plan to sell a client's home, I have an equally detailed plan for my buyers. Ask me if you qualify for our See It First program!
How do you make sure buyers get the best price for the property they are interested in?
Knowing whether it's a buyer's market or a seller's market is critical when writing an offer. A high price may appeal to sellers, but there may be other terms that are more important. I make it my business to find out!
What do you do to help market the properties your clients are selling?
Knowledge of the current market trends and competing properties helps me to advise you on your home's value. I hold the Broker Price Opinion Resource (BPOR) certification. Banks trust me to price their foreclosures, you could trust me, too!
How do you ensure your sellers get the highest price?
Don't waste your money on things that won't make a difference. Knowing what will give you a return on investment -- that's priceless!
What do you recommend sellers do to make sure their selling process is smooth?
Keep your home clean and "show ready," and listen to the market.
