It isn’t a secret: buying or selling a home in the East Bay can be challenging. The market shifts quickly; neighborhoods become hot, then not; small judgement calls make big differences in outcomes.
Here, experience - otherwise known as knowing what to do - matters a whole lot.
There are lots of ways to be a real estate company, but we think our way is best for this unique place we call home. Collaborative. Supportive. Accessible. Tech-savvy but people-focused.
When you work with a Red Oak agent, you’re getting a skilled Realtor and the confidence that comes from having an outstanding team on your side.
Our CEO, Vanessa, as smart a real estate strategist as you will find anywhere, is frequently engaged in transactions. Our COO, Aman, an advanced student of East Bay market data, delivers insights others miss. Our transaction team ensures your real estate journey is a smooth one.
We are 160 fantastic agents and 20 staff members committed to one thing: getting it right for you.
Red Oak was founded in a hot tub in Albany 40 years ago (not kidding). We don’t all fit in a hot tub anymore, but we have remained a small company by design.
Real estate is an inherently local and personal business. If decisions are made in faraway offices, and management grows distant from market nuances and the experience of clients, something is lost that we are not willing to lose.
Staying true to ourselves has gained us an outsized reputation for excellence. We have become a leading voice among independent real estate brokerages nationwide. Our executives are called upon to speak at conferences on innovation, marketing and technology.
Yes, we’ve won some awards:
- #10 largest women-owned companies in the East Bay (San Francisco Business Times, 2021)
- Best brokerage in the East Bay by readers of Oakland Magazine for 7 consecutive years (2015 - 2021)
- Inman Innovator Award nominee (2013, 2018, 2020)
And we’re the first real estate brokerage in the Bay Area to be carbon neutral and green-certified. Why? Because we stand by our values and are committed to helping our environment and our communities.

In 1960 Barbara Marquardt opened her own Real Estate office- "Marquardt Realtors". This came after working for many years in Real Estate while a single mother raising her 5 daughters. Barbara was dedicated to creating opportunity in her community for everyone to have equal access to real estate - working in the industry and/or investing in our neighborhoods.
Over the years "Marquardt Realtors" embraced and promoted rental housing in the community. In the 70's Barbara shifted her focus from sales to property management. She understood the importance of assisting clients with optimizing their investments in rental properties-to providing our community with desirable, clean and affordable rental housing. Marquardt "Realtors" became "Marquardt Property Management" in the 80's as the office dedicated itself to property management.
Barbara served as director with the Oakland Board of Realtors and as President of the Women's Council of Realtors. She stayed engaged and involved with the Oakland Public schools as each of her daughters traveled thru the school system, while working at the office and volunteering in the community. Although Barbara officially retired in 1989 she continued to be a part of the family business that her two daughters continued to maintain as their mother had. On April 11, 2003 Barbara passed away. Barbara's passion for public service continues with the generations of her family who remain dedicated to the business.
Marquardt Property Management adheres to the dedication and values that Barbara built the business nearly 60 years ago. We are a family business, and our clients are part of our family.
