Working with Nancy Bennett and her team was a fantastic experience. Moving from southern California, Nancy assisted us with finding a rental home first. She invited us into the community and found us a house that suited our needs and made the transition very easy. After one year, we expressed our desire to buy a home in the same area that we rented in. Nancy educated us on the process of home purchasing with The Bennett Team, including her mortgage broker, Greg Lartilleux of Avenir Mortgage Planners. While already homeowners, we still found their presentation to be extremely enlightening on the process of home financing and purchasing. When an opportunity arose that fit our family’s budget and needs, Nancy jumped right on it and from that moment the process went very smooth and quickly. Thank you!by The Zebleys, Concord
If you have a home to sell, use The Bennett Team. Period. We’ve personally seen the results and they are awesome. Nancy and her team recently sold our home in SIX days — with EIGHT offers — for a significant amount over the asking price. We are very, very pleased with the professionalism, competence, and helpfulness of the entire Bennett team. Nancy Bennett started working with us well before she had a signed contract — with suggestions for renovations that would pay off. Nancy recommended a contractor who did a SUPER job on the finishing touches like trim carpentry, painting, and flooring. Our home was buffed to a high shine by cleaners Nancy recommended and then staged and photographed beautifully by her hand-picked pros. When the offers rolled in, Nancy skillfully evaluated them and recommended a counter-offer strategy. In less than 24 hours, we had a solid buyer and sailed into the closing with no problems. Bottom line: Nancy Bennett is a very savvy, skilled marketer — with huge in-depth knowledge of how homes are sold and bought. But just as importantly, she really does care about her community and her clients. We saw that caring shine through many, many times.by Peter R., Concord
When it comes to real estate, I highly recommend Nancy Bennett and The Bennett Team! They are very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and they have a great team to cover all the bases when it comes to Bay Area real estate. My wife and I have been thinking about buying a house for the last two years. We finally took the plunge and bought our first home, and we love it! Nancy Bennett and her team helped to make the process relatively smooth and painless. My wife and I had a positive experience with everyone on The Bennett Team, and in particular we had a very good experience with Realtor Vincent Rossi. Vincent Rossi is an excellent real estate agent. He went the extra mile to give us different options to choose from, and we ended up with a home that we are very happy with. He walked us through each step so there were no surprises. He made the process smooth and painless. He did a great job handling the negotiations with the seller. I highly recommend Vincent Rossi, Nancy Bennett, and the entire “Bennett Better” team for your real estate needs!by Ken and Corey Lee
Last fall I decided to sell my late mother’s house in Concord but I didn’t know where to start. The house hadn’t been updated since the late 70’s and was filled with years of personal belongings. I did extensive online research and read numerous realtor reviews – and Nancy Bennett’s name kept popping up with glowing reviews. I called Nancy and arranged to meet her at my mother’s house. I was impressed with her warm and caring personality, professionalism, and honesty. Nancy provided me with several options. I trusted her recommendations for remodeling and she established a budget and time line for the work. After I sorted through the personal belongings, the Bennett Team took care of the rest – including emptying out the house, remodeling, staging, and extensive marketing. During the process, whenever I had a question, it was answered promptly. Beth Gilliam the contractor did an amazing job updating the house so that it was move-in ready and sparkled like a gem. I can’t say enough good things about Beth and her crew. The final staging from Ashley Provost was amazing. The entire process went smoothly and exceeded my expectations – and the house sold quickly, above asking price, with multiple bids. The Bennett Team is the real deal. You won’t find a better group of real estate professionals. Whether you’re buying or selling property, I highly recommend them.by Hank Simpson
The Bennett Team was such a pleasure to work with in the process of selling our home (spring 2015). They walked us through the entire process, guiding us from start to finish. Outstanding customer service. Looking forward to working with them again when we are ready to purchase a home again.by Gonsalves02, Concord (Zillow)
We live in PA and needed to sell my mother-in laws house in Clayton, California. Our local Keller-Williams representative recommended The Bennett Team with whom we signed with after meeting face to face. This house needed a lot of cleanup and work done prior to putting it on the market. Nancy and her team were so professional and respectful of the difficult process we had to go through instilling in us a lot of confidence in their ability to give us the professional advice needed to maximize our return. They exceeded our expectations on so many levels: They negotiated the closing bid to $25,000 above our asking price; they helped us decide how much to invest in repairs in order to maximize our ROI and attract a qualified buyer in the shortest period of time; they were excellent in their frequent and timely communications given we were 3,000 miles away … and most importantly their were very trustworthy in how they managed our relationship keeping our interest in the forefront of their thinking and actions. Everyone on the team (Nancy, Molly, Beth and Maddie) were a joy to work withby Rusty Beardsley, Clayton (Zillow)
I met Nancy a few years ago at an open house. I started looking for a condo to purchase but had to stop. A few months ago I stared my search again and Nancy introduced me to Vivian Miller, one of her Buyer Specialists. Vivian listened to my wants and needs and after what seemed like an eternity (I think we saw 20 properties), we found my perfect home….not too big and not too small. Vivian was a pleasure to work with as was the rest of The Bennett Team. They are very thorough and knowledgeable about the East Bay area. Being a first time home buyer, Vivian was very patient with me and my thousand questions and concerns. I would recommend The Bennett Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the East Bay.by Maria H. (Yelp)
This is the second home we’ve purchase through Nancy Bennett, and we decided to use her again because of her knowledge, her friendly and trusted counsel, and her ability to understand the current market trends. Our first home was a great find and our current one is even better … Thanks again to everyone on the Bennett Team for helping us find a great place to raise our family!by Peter Chechele
Nancy Bennett was recommended to me by a close friend. She was wonderful to deal with and assigned Buyer Specialist Vincent Rossi to assist me, as he specializes on the buying side. Vincent was an exceptional Realtor from the first day I met him. Very professional and fantastic at his job. This market is extremely tough right now in the Bay Area so you need someone who knows exactly how to get you the property you want and Vincent excels at this. During each property he took me to he asked numerous questions to hone down exactly what I wanted, and not waste my time taking me to properties that didn’t fit my criteria. Then when I found the home that I wanted, Vincent assisted me in the offer process, ultimately leading me to the house I closed on today!!! The entire Bennett Team was wonderful to deal with and worked together to make my home purchase happen. I highly recommend them!by Bob I., Richmond and San Francisco
Nancy assisted us with the purchase of a home that was bank owned and “needed some work” to put it mildly. Nancy was incredibly helpful and responsive. She helped us secure the winning bid on the property, lined up numerous inspections that helped us identify issues with the property and negotiate a lower purchase price than we were expecting. She then introduced us to contractors and service providers to help us do the work we needed to complete on the house. She is absolutely our go-to source for residential real estate and we enthusiastically recommend her to our friends.by wtstark (Zillow)
Our Bennett Team Buyer Specialist was a fantastic advocate, advisor and friend to my wife and me during the search for and purchase of our new home. She is attentive, a great listener and honest. We can’t recommend her highly enough, and the same goes for the rest of the team — Nancy Bennett is always available when needed and her knowledge and expertise are priceless; Molly Bennett and Maddie Ta are fantastic too. We couldn’t have done it without them!by The Watermans, Clayton
My husband and I cannot be more pleased with Nancy and her team! Our house had multiple offers after the first weekend of having an Open House. Nancy is thorough and an expert in what she does. Not only is she knowledgeable and savvy, she and her team are thoughtful and caring. They brought us dinner when they heard my husband was hospitalized. We also appreciate the high level of professionalism and how well the communication process was handled. We highly recommend Nancy Bennett and her team to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you, Nancy and team for all your help and everything you did for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor!by Ana Tangaan
Molly Bennett of The Bennett Team, and Beth Gilliam (Bennett Team premier contractor), thank you so much for your amazing response to the damaged wall in our staircase. I am very grateful to you both for jumping on this and getting it fixed before the photos were taken. This has been an excellent experience, working with you both. My parents also thought you were amazing. They are blown away by the house, and so am I. I can’t thank you enough!by Erin Reese
Thank you for all of the diligence and hard work you all have put into this process. You are an amazing team and we are very fortunate to know you and to have worked with you. You sold our home in 7 days with 17 offers and got us $81,000 over asking price! You – and your team – ROCK! As always!by Kelley Z.
We’ve definitely had our fair share of disappointments when we started looking for a home but our buyer’s agent from The Bennett Team was very persistent and got us the house that’s perfect for us. Nancy Bennett and The Bennett Team – with a special mention to Kari Park – also assisted in finding really good and responsible tenants for our rental property. With their help, it made transitioning into our new home really smooth and we couldn’t be any happier!by ross3, Benicia (Zillow)
You have no idea how great of a job your team has done. I have relocated to Texas, New Mexico, and San Diego twice in the last twelve years. And I can honestly say NO ONE comes close to your level of service! If I you need me to post a recommendation online let me know, I will recommend you to everyone I know.by Lorenzo B.
I had a very long and difficult sale, with multiple buyers making offers; a recalcitrant HOA and equally recalcitrant final buyer. Lots of issues, lots of steps and I am NOT always the easiest person to deal with. Through it all Nancy, Molly, Maddie and the rest of The Bennett Team were nothing but professional. I had multiple points of contact and there was always some to answer my calls, texts or emails with sound answers. Any problems were brought to my attention immediately and solutions found where they could be. A lot of work was done in my interest and the one backwards step I had to take was only needed because of my own time constraints.by Craig Fisher (Zillow)
I was so naive when I first met Nancy. I thought I knew a few things. By the end of the process, I realized I really was out of my league…Nancy is smart, really smart! Also she’s a real bull dog, we would have lost our dream house if she didn’t jump on it right away. I am convinced a lesser agent would have lost that house for us. Her expert negotiation saved us $30,000 on the purchase of our dream home!by Gary I.
Nancy Bennett is simply amazing. The only reason we were able to get our house was because of her … She is very hardworking and does not quit until she gets you your house. Whenever we had a question about what was going on with a house, she was instantly on the phone with the realtor selling the house, and would not let them go until she got an answer from them. If you want a house, look no further than Nancy Bennett. She is the best!by Joe and Katie
Nancy represented us in the sale of our Concord home in summer 2013. She arranged for us to make quick renovations to sell our home so we could get into our new home. The whole process was very efficient and worked as planned. We accepted an offer which led to an unfortunate appraisal. I really think that in the hands of a less efficient and motivated agent our sale and the purchase of our new house might not have been completed. The renovations people who work with her and her project manager (her sister, Molly) were also extraordinary.by Cindy F., Concord
From the beginning of the home-buying process until the day we got our keys, Nancy Bennett was a realtor who inspired our complete confidence. She excels at educating and informing clients, and has the patience to answer questions and calm nerves. I’m convinced that her negotiating savvy got us into our house for the right price and terms. She is wonderful to work with and I recommend her enthusiastically!by Lisa H.
In the fiercely competitive SF Bay area, we interviewed 4 top notch agents and selected Nancy Bennett to list our home in Moraga. We haven’t regretted it for a nanosecond. High energy and down to earth, Nancy has put together a team of specialists to enable lightening fast responses to her clients and quick remedies to problems. Nancy is very hands on for all the marketing and buyer evaluation issues. Example: Nancy held an open house EVERY DAY of the 10-day period from listing to acceptance of offers! To enable her to be proficient, she has team specialists for other aspects of the selling process. We had many dealings with all members of Nancy’s team because our place was renovated – based on Nancy’s suggestions – prior to listing. Nancy and her team helped us find contractors and stayed on top of the process! We would employ the Bennett team again in a heartbeat.by Shirley O., Irving, TX and Moraga
