Steve-headshot5My philosophy is that working with the right agent should be like spending time with a trusted friend. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, I look out for your interests as a friend would. Your long-term happiness is my primary concern.

Additionally, I believe the process of buying or selling a home should be a time of exciting possibilities. I know that dreaming of your family’s future is the best part of house shopping.

The financial process surrounding home ownership can be difficult. Myself and the team at Marvin Gardens are knowledgeable professionals. Our job is to guide you through the entire process, taking care of the details to put your mind at ease.

Educated at the Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University, my background is in journalism. I’ve worked as a photographer and writer for publications including USAToday, People, and Time magazine.

Having lived in the East Bay for nearly 15 years, I have a keen understanding of the neighborhoods and schools in the area. I play soccer, swim and help organize community activities. My daughter attends school in Oakland.

“Honesty and integrity have always been a mainstay of my work. Let me guide you through the sale or purchase of a home.” ~ Steve LaBadessa
