Buying a home is such a stressful situation at the best of times…. thank you Dara & Ronni for making this one of the smoothest & most effortless transactions we have ever done. Not only did you help find us this dream of a house you advised & guided us with both agent professionalism as well as taking a personal interest in every step of the process. Nothing was too much trouble for you & your attention to detail was off the charts! In a world where good service is hard to come by you ladies are definitely the gold standard! We are eternally grateful to both of you & honestly cannot recommend your services enough.

Dara is extremely knowledgeable about the Walnut Creek market and expertly guided us towards the purchase of our first home (which we love). Shes exceedingly patient, optimistic, kind, and amazing with kids! We were on a tight deadline to buy and she was able to score us a great house at a great price in just a few weeks (a miracle in this market!). House shopping with a toddler was challenging at times, but Dara was so amazing with our daughter that she would be so excited to see Dara each time we met to view a home. We loved working with Dara and highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase their dream home.

We were first time home buyers and were looking for a realtor who had expertise and knowledge with Eichler homes. Dara came highly recommended and we were so happy to work with her. She knew the type of home we were searching for and the minute one came on the market that fit our needs, she immediately reached out to us. She was beyond helpful throughout the entire process and was always responsive to all of our questions. We are so glad to have worked with Dara and Ronni and will recommend them to others! Because of Dara we are now living in our dream home!

I have never seen 2 realtors work this hard to help a seller move. They hired packers and movers, cleaned out cabinets, swept out the garage, and watered the lawn.
The owner left her residence and never returned. I have never seen such a hurculean effort.
If you need to list your home, consider these 2 realtors

Besides being incredibly knowledgeable, professional and proactive, Dara and Ronni are the kindest, most caring, amazing realtors. They both have been our source of positive energy during the stressful process of buying a house in the extremely competitive Bay Area real estate market.

Million thanks are not enough to express our gratitude to Dara and Ronni who were by our side every step of the way, they were available at all times including late evenings, providing us great advice and guidance.
If it wasn’t for Dara and Ronni, I have no doubt that we wouldn’t be able to call home the most wonderful house that we fell in love with the first time we walked in.

What makes Dara and Ronni the best of the best realtors is their genuine care for the people they represent, unparalleled thoughtfulness and attention to the smallest details, dedication and commitment to going far BEYOND “above and beyond”.

In conclusion, Dara and Ronni are the best of the best realtors, a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to anyone who wants their dream house to become reality as they’re are not stopping after going the “extra mile”, they’re willing to go “extra thousand miles” for the people they represent.

My name is Esther Shiffer and I recently sold my house in Round Hill in Alamo. My realtors were Ronni Schwartz and Dara Buzzard.Since I am 77 years old and in very poor health, I needed a very special realtor who could understand my limitations and help when the tasks became too much.That is exactly what I found in Ronni and Dara. They were with me every step of the way, from preparing the house to be sold, to packing , staging and moving. Far more help than realtors are required to provide. I doubt I could have chosen a better team of realtors. The house was priced right for the market and sold within a few days at almost half a million more than advertised. I would recommend Ronni Schwartz and Dara Buzzard to any one needing a capable, reliable realtor team.

"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 is an outstanding Realtor. Ronni is very attentive to every detail, protecting our interests throughout the process of buying our home. She offered us great advice, guidance, and counsel. Ronni was accessible on any given day or night, returning our calls and e-mails promptly. She kept us focused, calm and optimistic. We are very grateful for her hard work and diligence - she is simply the best! We mean every word and more...Can we nominate Ronni for "Realtor of the Year?"

We have bought and sold 8 houses. Ronni was/is by far the very best real estate professional we have ever used. In addition, she is smart, caring, calm, and professional - I could go on and on. Everyone in our family loved and respected her.

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!
