ABOUT ERIN & DARRICK Erin and Darrick’s family roots go back three generations in Lafayette. They are extremely knowledgeable about all that Lamorinda has to offer and their love for the community is infectious. They feel fortunate to live in such an amazing community and to watch their children benefit from many of the same activities and traditions they did growing up such as LMYA Soccer, girl scouts, riding bikes on the Lafayette trail, paddle boating on the Reservoir and the list goes on. Erin and Darrick write a monthly column for the Lamorinda Weekly. See recent articles included in the Insight section of their website. Their love for real estate began early on with their personal experience buying and selling investment properties. This first-hand knowledge of the process is invaluable to clients. They pride themselves on truly understanding the needs of each and every client and are dedicated to ensuring that every seller and buyer has a successful experience. Erin received a BA from UC Berkeley and her MSW from NYU and worked as a counselor for New York University and UCLA - Santa Monica Hospital before obtaining her Real Estate license. Darrick is a retired Partner at Alvarez & Marsal, a global turnaround and management consulting firm and spent over twenty years leading numerous large international companies through change. Their combined background and skill sets are crucial when it comes to negotiating real estate transactions. In their free time Erin and Darrick volunteer at Springhill Elementary School, are supporters of Lafayette Juniors and LPIE and enjoy running and spending time with their ten year old twins and fifteen year old daughter.

OUR APPROACH We pride ourselves in helping every family find a house that perfectly fits their needs and ensuring that Sellers get the largest return on their investment. Let us make our hometown, your hometown, and help you achieve your real estate goals.

FOR BUYERS Buying a home is more than a financial investment. It is commitment to a place, a community and the foundation of a family’s hopes and dreams. We understand that buyers are searching for more than a house; they want to find their home. That’s why we take the time to really get to know our clients, their desires and their needs. We work tirelessly to make sure that they get the best representation at every stage of the buying process – from personally previewing every available property, to structuring competitive offers that are successful, right through to the final details of closing the transaction.

OUR APPROACH We pride ourselves in helping every family find a house that perfectly fits their needs and ensuring that Sellers get the largest return on their investment. Let us make our hometown, your hometown, and help you achieve your real estate goals.

FOR SELLERS We take great pride in every home that we present for sale. A good first impression is key to generating interest among prospective buyers and translates into strong offers. As a seller’s agent, our goal is twofold; we want to take the stress out of the selling process for you and maximize your return. This means careful preparation of every property prior to market, multi-channeled print and digital marketing once we go to market and advocating for your goals during the negotiation process and throughout the sale.

LAMORINDA 2019 Q1 MARKET UPDATE Below is a summary of Multiple Listing Service (“MLS”) data for Lamorinda residential detached home sales over the last twelve months from April 2018 to March 2019 (the prioryear comparison is from April 2017 to March 2018). In summary: • Our overall real estate market remains strong but the numbers don’t tell the full story The early 2019 market delivered strong results for most of Lamorinda. Lamorinda average sales price is now $1.71M, up 9%, average sales price per square foot is $649, up 5%, and average days on market is consistent with last year at 25 days. • Lafayette continues to outpace both Moraga and Orinda - Lafayette’s average sales price is now $1.82M and average sales price per square foot is $686, up 6%. Average sales price per square foot is $588, up 3% for Moraga and $637, up 5% for Orinda. • Certain homes are showing signs of softening – While recently remodeled, commute friendly homes with functional yards continue to push the market to new heights, beginning last Summer homes that needed updating or homes in less desirable locations took longer to sell and experienced price reductions. Volatility of mortgage rates and the stock market combined with the new Tax Plan have led homebuyers to be cautious with homes that do not check all their boxes. • Bay Area Tech IPOs Could Boost The Market – Recent and potential upcoming IPOs from the likes of Lyft, Uber, Pinterest, Stripe and Airbnb that are within commute distance of Lamorinda could boost our real estate market in the second half of the year if stock valuations remain strong The following pages provide further details and breaks down the numbers by home size.

HISTORICAL BAY AREA & LAMORINDA MARKET It is helpful to provide historical context to our real estate market to understand past PERFORMANCE cycles and how Lamorinda faired compared to the rest of the Bay Area. Each cycle always has different market influences and therefore makes pinpointing the exact timing of when cycles begin and end very difficult. Even during bubble or irrational exuberance periods markets can run well beyond what market experts believe is rational. An example is the 2008-9 Financial Crisis caused by early 2000’s lax underwriting mortgage standards that allowed housing prices to skyrocket from zero-down and negative amortization loans. Most economists in 2003-4 believed homes were overvalued but values continued to rise another three to four years until 2007-8. Over the last thirty plus years Bay Area real estate markets were not only influenced by the health of our macro economy but also heavily influenced by Bay Area high-tech sector. Innovation creates new markets that translate into wealth creation that propels the growth of our real estate markets. The Silicon Valley influence today extends well beyond the Peninsula. In recent years the run up in Lamorinda home prices has been fueled by “new-tech” companies headquartered in San Francisco such as Uber, Airbnb, Lyft, Pinterest, Stripe, Salesforce, Twitter, Dropbox and Square where previously the lengthy commute to the Silicon Valley prohibited Lamorinda from being a viable option to most tech workers. The following page provides a historical perspective of past cycles and how Lamorinda price appreciation compares to the rest of the Bay Area.

In 1937 when Lafayette’s population was 4,000, the Caldecott Tunnel opened creating further growth in the area. While mostly a residential community of quarter-acre or larger lots, Lafayette has seen office growth and supports a small but vital retail business district along the main street of Mt.

Moraga The town of Moraga, tucked away in the hills south of Lafayette and Orinda, shares a common bond of ancestry and affluence with its neighbors while maintaining a large measure of independence. The town’s name is taken from the Joaquin Moraga family who settled on a land grant, Rancho Laguna de los Palos Colorados, in 1835. Major residential development began replacing major ranching interests and flourishing walnut and pear orchards in 1953, and in 1974 Moraga was incorporated.

Orinda The City of Orinda is the first residential development on Highway 24 on the east side of the Caldecott tunnel. The freeway bisects Orinda resulting in the Crossroads business district to the south and The Village business district to the north. Orinda lies on portions of the Rancho de Laguna de los Palos Colorados and the Rancho El Sobrante, which were Mexican land grants to the Moraga and Castro families. In the 1920’s when about 1200 acres were designated the town site of Orinda, city people began building summer homes in the wooded hillsides. It was only when the Caldecott Tunnel to Oakland, about eight miles away, was completed in 1937 the area began to develop. Today Orinda offers gracious country style living to San Francisco and Oakland commuters who enjoy its rural setting and village-like atmosphere. Population:
