My wife and I first connected with Lisa due to her experience with relocation as we were moving our family from Toronto, Canada out to California. From the beginning we found Lisa to be very helpful and extremely responsive; she set us up with several weeks worth of housing to evaluate prior to our first trip to California so we would have a better idea of the neighborhoods and housing market. Though our house-hunting mission took several trips before we found our home, Lisa gladly set aside whatever time we needed during our stay.She was able to cater around our atypical schedule when we were in town working both late nights and early mornings as well as weekends to ensure we got the time we needed. Once we finally found the perfect home, Lisa helped us navigate the formalities of a home purchase in California (which is very different and far more complicated from that in Canada) and did so extremely efficiently.Making such a large investment from 3000 miles away is nerve-racking at the best of times however Lisa made it as seamless as possible from the beginning through the purchase and even after we closed. Even now we still communicate with Lisa whether it be looking for a recommendation for an electrician or a great place in the neighborhood to order Chinese food. We are very glad to have connected with Lisa as she truly made our relocation a smooth endeavor.For anyone going through the relocation process or even just looking to purchase a new home, I would strongly recommend you reach out and connect with Lisa; she really works hard to get the job done and we would definitely work with her again if ever given the chance. Thanks Lisa! :D

As our sale of my home closed swiftly this week, let me tell you how pleased I am with your performance in my interest. You not only most efficiently performed the usual agent duties, but also demonstrated again and again your sincere dedication to securing the best deal for me. Your extensive connection with a number of local resources greatly smoothed the preparation for the final sale and escrow. On the rare occasion when we suggested an alternative to a piece of your advice, your impartial analysis of the full implications of the choices quickly led to mutual decisions that moved the process forward most successfully. Thus I never felt I was led by the nose, but guided by a very skilled professional. In a word, thanks!
My husband and I recently relocated to the area from Ohio and worked with Lisa to find our new home. With our relocation being such a long distance, there were several stressful aspects of the move, but Lisa made the home search and buying process a breeze. Because of the long distance relocation, we had a very short window of time to look at houses, put in offers and get in contract on a home. The first time we met with Lisa she was able to get a feel for our tastes after walking through just a few houses with us. She did not waste our time showing us houses or areas of town that she knew we would not be interested in and was able to select houses that we could really see ourselves living in. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the market so we were able to work with her on an abbreviated timeline to find our #1 choice house and get an accepted offer. When it came time to pick up the keys after closing on our new home, my husband and I were out of state so Lisa gladly picked up the keys and then later stopped by to drop the keys off to us once we got back into the area. Lisa also has a lot of great contacts in the contractor and housing field who she can recommend which came in handy when we wanted to have the new home painted and new flooring installed. Lisa Manifold is courteous, professional, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking a realtor in the area.
Lisa is a very strong, confident and thorough realtor. She was very helpful in helping us find our home after relocating from Georgia. She worked countless hours and went above and beyond the call of duty. She not only helped us find our home under very strict time constraints, she researched so much more! She's very knowledgeable about market conditions and was able to find us a home for a great price! I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for their next or new home purchase.

We had the absolute pleasure of having Lisa Manifold as our real estate agent for the sale of our home in Oakley, CA and wanted to share our experience of working with Lisa with you. We can’t say enough positive things about Lisa. From the very first meeting, Lisa was exceedingly sharp, prepared, professional, knowledgeable, and experienced. From the moment she officially became our realtor, Lisa assertively captained the ship and expertly navigated us through the entire and often-times confusing home-selling process from start to finish. In addition, Lisa was extremely responsive, answering any questions or concerns with clarity, confidence and re-assuredness. We understand the sale of one’s home can be an emotional roller-coaster, and Lisa was exceptional in making us feel comfortable, at-ease and confident throughout the entire process.Equally important, Lisa’s experience and top-notch talent in the industry were in full-display in the way she strategized and game-planned the sale of our home. Case in point: Lisa knew exactly what price point was needed to “drive up” the sales price, which is exactly what happened. Lisa was then able to expertly manage offers and select the best, most qualified buyer.But what separates Lisa from even the very best real-estate agents in the country is Lisa’s careful attention to detail and “personal touch”. Lisa’s warm, friendly and good-nurtured personality made prospective buyers feel at ease and confident about the home they were considering. Put simply, Lisa is the best real estate agent we have ever met.
