"Working with Dara was an absolute delight! From our initial reach-out to signing and closing, Dara was with us every step of the way and made something as complex as a real estate transaction feel incredibly simple (and even fun!) Dara brings a wealth of knowledge of the Bay Area real estate market, both as an agent but also as someone who has lived in the area her entire life. Her thoughts and feedback were hugely informative through the different phases of our house hunt, especially so as we narrowed in on a couple of areas in the Orinda / Walnut Creek area. Once we found “the house” Dara’s knowledge and instinct of the area really helped inform the way we landed in putting our offer together; which we ultimately won out on over several competing bids at the very first house we put an offer on. Both my wife and I are SO pleased to have been introduced to Dara and highly recommend her."

Dara and Ronni are such an incredible team! I just bought my first home and I always felt 100% supported with them and always felt they had my back and my best interest at heart. It is so important to have a realtor you can trust and the trust I have in them is priceless. They are so knowledgeable, savvy, smart and kind- a rare combination that means so much when you’re dealing with such important transactions! They have helped other family members buy (and sell) the perfect home and we all love them and would recommend them in a heartbeat for any of your real estate needs.

Dara and Ronni were amazing throughout our home buying process. They were super knowledgeable, incredibly responsive and very proactive. We could tell they genuinely cared about experience and it was great having them in our corner.

Dara and Ronni were stellar throughout our first-time home buying experience! Since my wife and I were coming from SF and had little to no knowledge of the Walnut Creek / Contra Costa County region, we selected Dara & Ronni specifically for their knowledge of the neighborhoods. Dara set up the open house visits to make it seamless on our end, walked us through the entire process, and in the end, we were able to put together an attractive offer for our first home. Dara & Ronni were highly responsive, communicative, and they took time to answer any and all of our questions no matter how trivial. 10/10 would go with them again if we ever decide to purchase another home in the area.

This was our first time buying a home and we had a great experience with Dara! We found Dara online and after a quick interview, we knew she would be perfect for us. She knows Walnut Creek like the back of her hand and that's the expertise we were looking for. She scheduled all our home visits efficiently and gave us honest opinions when we asked for it. We loved that she was on the same page as us and didn't give up when we came up empty. And when we found our home (19 houses later.. ;D), she knew it was the right one also. Ronni was also a big help in making sure we had everything in order. We enjoyed working with this team and would not hesitate to work with them again!

Dara and Ronni are truly the dynamic duo. The care and thought put into ensuring you have the best experience during what can be stressful time is unparalleled. We sold our condo and bought a home while having 2 babies under 2 and during the beginning of the shelter in place. They made it a pleasure, which is sayin a lot. I can't recommend working with them highly enough!

Dara and Ronni are incredible partners. They were keenly aware of our desires, needs, and even our concerns. Their expertise gave us great confidence even in this highly competitive market. They took the time to advise us on every detail to ensure we had an enjoyable, exciting and stress-free process when purchasing our home.

I can't recommend them enough. I hope to work with them again! Huge thanks to them both!!!

Dara and Ronni were both professional and experienced realtors that helped guide us through the labyrinth process that is buying a home in the Bay Area. This also during a pandemic no Less! Every step of the way and at every high and low moment we felt we were in good hands! Highly recommended!

Dara was recommended to me by a good friend, who went to elementary school with her. When I told my friend (who grew up in Walnut Creek) we were considering the area, she knew that Dara, and Ronni, would be a great fit. She was right on, as Dara and Ronni are experts in this area. On our home buying journey (which lasted over a year) Dara never gave up on us (even when I started to lose hope). My only regret was not listening to her sooner, and not being more aggressive in the beginning of our home search. Eventually, we settled on a sweet house but it was no picnic getting home. It was a journey to find it, and we have Dara and Ronni to thank for it. Patience is a virtue and good Real Esate agents earn their salary. Thank you for helping us find our way home:)

Ronni is the consummate real estate professional, and she truly is invested in the best interests of her clients. There is not a better, smarter or more dedicated person. She has exceptional judgment and consistently goes above and beyond. I met Ronni when she represented a buyer for the sale of my previous home. I was so impressed with her, that I asked her to represent me on two subsequent real estate transactions. Ronni recently sold my home in a couple of weeks, following an impressive and comprehensive marketing strategy. I believe she works around the clock because she makes herself available early and late in the day, and it's not unusual to receive an e-mail from her at 2 am. In addition to being the best real estate person I know, Ronni is a gracious, generous, kind and thoughtful person. She is the best of the best!

Ronni Schwartz came highly recommended to us, when a job offer brought us to this area. Through the years we have moved many times and we were so pleased to find such a competent, helpful realtor to help us locate the right house and guide us through the purchase process. We had a short time here to hunt for a house, and Ronni had a list of possibilities all lined up for us to see. We went back to TN, undecided, but leaning towards making an offer on one of the houses we had seen. In the meantime, our daughter sent us a listing she had found online that seemed like a good fit for our family. We sent it to Ronni and asked her to take a look at the area and the house, if possible. She knew what was important to us, from all of the comments we had made while looking at other homes. To make our long story short, we made an offer on the house - sight unseen - and couldn't be happier with our home. It feels like it was made for us. We are so grateful for Ronni's insight and diligence, and knowledge of the area to find the house that is perfect for us.

Ronni was every homeowner's dream come true in a realtor. Her advice, guidance, tenacity, professionalism and style helped us through a rather difficult transaction. I don't know what we would have done without her! I thank my lucky stars we found Ronni, as will anyone that works with her!

You were great to work with. You did an amazing job and really went the extra mile during a very trying situation and difficult close. I am so happy with the service that you provided and how you handled the entire situation. You were a pleasure to work with!

Buyer & Seller
Ronni Schwartz was our agent when we purchased and sold our Danville home. We can honestly say that if it had not been for Ronni, we would not have been "selected" as the buyer, and because of her knowledge and professionalism, we could not have been able to re-sell our home for the price that we received, and in such a short amount of time. When the Real Estate market was at its peak, with multiple offers on nearly every sale, it was Ronni's hard work and understanding of the market that helped us get our offer accepted. Knowing that we would have to sell within the 10 months, it was Ronni's guidance and counsel that convinced us when to place our home on the market, resulting in our receiving the highest price ever for a comparable home in our area. It sold within 4 days with a 50% cash offer. Because of her wonderful work, we have referred her to our friends and neighbors. There are many choices when selecting a real estate professional, we highly recommend Ronni Schwartz!

I am happy to recommend Ronni as an outstanding Realtor. Ronni has worked with me on three home purchases and two homes sales in Danville and San Ramon. She has also sold my sister a home and had listed and sold two homes for a close friend. Ronni's knowledge of the housing market made me the successful bidder on each home I made an offer on, and expedited each of my sales. Her reliability and integrity are without question. I highly recommend Ronni.

Ronni Schwartz has been the driving force in four real estate transactions for myself. She also successfully found a home for my daughter and sold the home of a friend. I've never met an agent more attuned to clients' needs and detail.

You truly listened to both of us, gained a solid knowledge of what we were looking for, and you persevered in your quest to find us the right home.
