Broker-Associate, Certified EcoBroker
Just like our Bay Area weather, the real estate market in the East Bay is made up of microclimates (or micro-markets) that vary widely and change frequently. That’s why it’s so important to have a Realtor who knows our market both broadly and deeply, and is nimble enough to help you navigate it.
I look at houses all the time, and I tour them with the eye of a marketing guru, a personal shopper, an interior designer and an appraiser. When Red Oak Realty talks about being “seriously local,” this is what it means to me: I see each property on its own merits as well as within the context of its block, neighborhood and city… and always through the lens of how it informs the market for my clients.
My clients receive outstanding service, and I am proud to say that over 90% of my business comes from referrals from satisfied clients.
Before becoming a Realtor, I worked as a Marketing professional in the Arts. I was the Director of Marketing for San Francisco Performances and New Century Chamber Orchestra as well as a Marketing Consultant and Events Producer for many arts and social service organizations in San Francisco and the East Bay.
In addition to these pursuits I have Art Directed and designed the look for several independent films, commercials, and photo shoots. I have a great eye, which is a huge asset for Sellers when it comes to staging their homes for sale. It’s also a benefit for my Buyer clients as it helps me see the potential in a raw space, look beyond the staging to what may be camouflaged, as well as advise in choices about future remodeling and updating projects.
I’ve been in the Bay Area for over 20 years and live in Oakland with my son Ben and our dog, Firebolt. When not at work, I volunteer as part of the team who produce the East Bay Mini Maker Faire, and am Co-Director of CAMP 510, an arts and maker summer camp for kids.
RECENT LISTING: 432 50th Street
“We wholeheartedly recommend Corey Weinstein to anyone searching for a sharp, honest, and all-around excellent Realtor.
Corey recently helped us buy our first home in the extremely competitive Berkeley housing market. As rookies, we needed someone with abundance patience and excellent communication skills to walk us through the process, which we found at times bewildering. Corey very quickly became our trusted advisor. She seems to know all there is to know about the real estate game, and is able to communicate that knowledge clearly and easily.
At one point, we were on the verge of buying a house that, in retrospect, would have been a poor choice for our situation. We asked Corey her honest opinion about what we should do. A nudge from her might have been enough for us to buy the house; but to her credit, she advised against it, although it cost her the commission. We will always be grateful that she put our interests first. Not long after that, with Corey’s help, we found the perfect duplex for our multigenerational family. We’ll soon be moving in: two adults, a two year-old, and grandparents. Corey has continued to be an invaluable resource as we complete renovations to what we are certain will be a very happy home.
Corey is a real person and an honest broker. You won’t regret using her services.”
