Gina and Amanda make a great comprehensive real estate team to prepare, market, sell and close on your home. They explained all the documentation and set expectations of what is to come next and when. They guided us and supported us in preparing our home for sale to get the best offer. They went above and beyond by working with the agent of the house we are buying to keep everyone on the same page, as selling and buying sometimes have to be in lock step. This was a tremendous help to us during the stressful time of transitioning between homes. They are a great team, both extremely knowledgeable and always easy to contact and responsive to any questions or concerns that come up. I will highly recommend them to all my family, friends and neighbors who are thinking of selling or buying a home.

My wife and I have worked with Gina to purchase three homes and sell two others in the last thirteen years. Our experience has been positive every time. As a seller she prepped us and our home to meet the current market trends. Her knowledge of what buyers are looking for helped us to present a home that stood out from all the others. As a buyer she really listened to what we wanted and used her experience and knowledge of our market to help us make a well informed purchase decision. Gina’s approach of focusing on the best terms rather than just having to be the highest bidder is refreshing and works even in our crazy market. Once offers were signed the communication was always there keeping us up to date. Gina has created a great team with Amanda Pereira and Scott Doruff that takes what could be a very stressful process and making it much easier to get through. It is nice to work with good people.

Gina and Amanda are the dynamic duo! Gina was always coming by our neighborhood and knocking on doors to let everyone know she's there if needed. I was SO thankful for Gina AND Amanda. When my dad passed away and we had to sell his home of 35+ years. They really made a bad situation much more bearable and went over and beyond just "selling a house". Emotional support, quick response, and especially listening to our needs was always a priority. You ladies ROCK and I would recommend Gina and Amanda 1000% Thanks again for turning a grim situation into a thoughtful experience.

A big, big THANK YOU! You both were great to work with! We really appreciate the time and dedication you put into getting and finding us a place. We also appreciated the negotiating skills in writing up our offer - I'm sure that is why we won the bidding war! Thanks so much!

Lorne S. recommends Huggins Real Estate Group

Gina is hands down the best realtor I have ever worked with. And, ok, being a first time home buyer, well she was the only realtor I have ever worked with. But really I see no reason not to keep it that way. Her experience and knowledge of the Livermore area is extensive and invaluable. I came to her at the last minute on a friday excited to see a house being shown that weekend. Gina took me to see it THAT DAY. She is quick to answer questions and get in touch with when needed. Gina knows the home buying process inside and out, which is good because I certainly did not. And that's ok, because she is extremely qualified to guide you through it and work the finer details.

Anthony and Paige P. recommends Huggins Real Estate Group

My husband and I have searched for a house for a year and a half before we finally found the one, and Gina was with us the whole time. We are first time home buyers and did not fully understand the whole process. Gina went above and beyond to make sure to explain every detail of paperwork and be there whenever we needed her to be. And if she could for whatever reason not be there, her assistant/coworker Amanda would be, who is equally as helpful and professional. Gina is very knowledgeable and experienced realtor. She was always on schedule with deadlines and made calls to home inspectors, plumbers, loan officer, title company, etc. when needed, not to mention answering our millions of questions at all times. When it came down to the offer, she was able to negotiate with the seller and get us what we asked for even in this very competitive market. Gina and Amanda ultimately made this a very enjoyable experience for us. Thank you Gina and Amanda!

As a business professional I highly recommend Debi Bodan, Realtor. Debi is a great person to work with, bringing expert knowledge, integrity and very easy to approach.

James DeMartini recommends Debi Bodan


We first met Debi when we sold our first Livermore home in 2011. She worked diligently to prep the property in order to obtain the highest possible return for us in a pretty turbulent market at that time. That transaction went swimmingly and we established a great friendship with Debi and her family.

When it came to selling our second Livermore home in 2016 we, of course, contacted Debi and once again she worked tirelessly to not only prepare our home for sale, but also to find a replacement property that best suited our needs. Again, Debi was successful on both fronts, getting us multiple offers before our home hit the MLS at a price we were very happy with. She then proceeded to spend numerous weekends with us visiting various potential new home locations while spending entire days with us in that search. In the end, her extra efforts were again successful and very much appreciated.

Debi also recently assisted our daughter and her husband in selling their Livermore home. Needless to say, we would recommend Debi to any acquaintance interested in a professional, hard-working real estate expert focused on client service and excellent results. Cheers to Debi!

Software Engineer and Stay at Home Mom

With working with Debi, you not only get an amazing realtor, you also get and absolutely fantastic person all around. It is so easy to have honest conversations about what you are looking in your new home and Debi won't let you settle for anything other than what you want. She has your best interests at heart and mind and treats you like part of her family...which always comes first!

She was fabulous in the sale of our home, from getting stunning pictures from a great photographer to staging our home to make it just what buyers were looking for. Her contacts in the industry are top of the line! And when it came to buying, she was out there doing anything she could to make sure we had the best offer on the table.

She worked with us on both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one and has made everything seamless and easy on us, which is so important ! Her experience and knowledge about the area was what allowed us to get a great offer on our home as well as find an amazing future home for family. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Ashley Rose recommends Debi Bodan

Debi Bodan helped us sell our house recently and she went above and beyond our expectations. For first time sellers we didn't know what to expect but Debi was very knowledgeable and explained things to us in a way that helped us understand without making us feel pressured. Not only is Debi knowledgeable in buying and selling houses she goes the extra mile to make sure her clients get the very best. She takes the time to really get to know and understand her clients needs and wants so they end up in the best possible position for them and their families. I can't say enough great things about Debi. She is an amazing person and an even better realitor.

Norm and Martie M. recommends Huggins Real Estate Group

We are glad to say that we recently sold our home of 35 years in this now difficult real estate market. Our home was located on a busy street in Livermore. We knew that our well-kept home had many pluses as well as several minuses. Our dilemma was how to attract potential buyers, spotlight the homes best features, and in an honest and forthright manner disclose the negative aspects of our home. After interviewing several realtors we selected Gina Huggins to represent us. We selected Gina because her current and previous listings were predominantly in the area surrounding our home and she had sold many similar homes. Gina’s approach was very straightforward. Immediately after signing our business agreement with Gina she had our home inspected so there would be no unpleasant surprises later, especially in this tight market. We were able to both show (disclose) the inspection reports to potential buyers and we also knew exactly what had to be remedied before escrow closed. Gina crafted a very nice descriptive flyer for us and also a very professional web based virtual tour. Gina guided us smoothly through the open house process, the bid and counter aspects of the sale, and the escrow process. Of course we had numerous questions during the process and Gina answered them all to our complete satisfaction. We strongly recommend that you consider Gina Huggins for your realtor.

Home Buyer

Stacey helped me buy my first house. She was extremely organized and very responsive to all my requests. She was also very accommodating to my busy schedule, planning ahead to make sure we got to see all the houses I wanted to within a tight time frame. She helped advise me on market conditions and price points, and was very patient and didn't put any pressure. I got the feeling that she truly wanted to make sure I found the right house, not aggressively eager for the sale like I've noticed with other realtors.

Bob and Dixie Johnson recommends Individual Users

Mark was our realtor when we sold our home in 2015. Without a doubt, he is the most conscientious, thorough, professional person we could have chosen. From the first time we met with him until the day we actually moved, he was always available to us. He returned calls promptly, gave us updates at every step along the way, and went above and beyond our expectations. Most of all, he is an honest, ethical, kind and caring person. And, his attention to detail is amazing.
We highly recommend him and hope your experience would be as wonderful as ours.

Gina and Amanda did a fantastic job for us. We were very pleased with their service. We had a few hiccups that came up during the sale of our home. That is so very common when selling a home. They took care of each hiccup in a timely manner so that they were painless. I would highly recommend them to help you buy or sell your home. They were professional, knowledgable, timely and attentive to all of our needs. They made the process go as smooth as possible. Their service was A+ in my opinion

Bree and Kevin K. recommends Huggins Real Estate Group

Gina has been selling homes in our neighborhood for years so it was a no-brainer that we would consider her when we started interviewing agents. We felt very comfortable with her and her partner, Amanda, so decided to list with them. We are so glad we did. Everything went smoothly, even though my husband and I left for Europe two days after we accepted an offer on our home. They handled everything, and never missed a beat. We have no qualms about recommending them. They will do a great job for you

We’re glad that we chose Gina Huggins to represent us in the sale of our home, and we would highly recommend her. She’s very experienced and was able to educate us on everything that came up during the process. She was always accessible and communicative. She responded promptly to any questions that we had, and always kept us up-to-date on what was happening. We felt that she partnered with us on the marketing and sale of our home, and she was very easy to work with. Gina is a really nice person, too, which is always a bonus in a business transaction. We really enjoyed working with her and achieved positive results!

Our recent purchase of a short sale was the fourth successful transaction where Gina Huggins represented us in a real estate deal. Gina is the ultimate professional that you want to have on your side. She is responsive to your needs every step of the way. Gina is knowledgable about every aspect of the process and is a person of integrity and fights for you if challenges come up. She has vast experience and uses that experience to intercept and avoid problems. When getting the deal done, you work so closely with a person, they become like family and It was a great piece of mind knowing she's always looking out for us! Her recommendation to the mortgage broker we used was great too! Best team we ever had!

Julie Sedillo and Greg Harris recommends Debi Bodan

My partner and I recently hired Debi to be our selling agent for our home in Livermore and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Debi is not only a competent and experienced agent, she is a pleasure to work with. Her hands on, gracious, and patient nature was exactly what we needed to get us through a very stressful time of selling our home and moving to foothills. She is very knowledgeable about the area which was helpful in comping our unique home which ultimately brought us the perfect buyer and at our asking price too! Debi is quality and represents the best! Choose Debi to represent you and your home and you will be VERY happy you did!!
