Simone Koga has translated a childhood spent on the move with her hard-working parents into a passion for helping her clients in the San Francisco Bay area find their perfect home base. A first-generation American, Simone’s Brazilian immigrant parents instilled in her a strong work ethic, which initially led her to a career as an emergency room nurse. The critical thinking skills and levelheadedness that were assets to her in that context have also served her well in real estate.
Simone has the utmost respect for her clients, and seeks to empower buyers and sellers, translating up-to-date market information into winning strategies so that they feel confident in making these weighty decisions. Buying a home is as much about a true lifestyle fit as anything. Simone believes in the power of the right home to be a refuge, and will work with clients to refine what they’re looking for, and how and where to find it. Sellers can equally rely on her expert guidance, taking the mystery and the anxiety out of the process. Offering transparency and a keen marketing sense, Simone will work tirelessly to ensure a return on your investment.
Simone specializes in Oakland, Berkeley and surrounding communities. She calls the thriving East Bay home with her husband, their young daughter, two dogs and two cats. Simone’s personal interests include hiking, gardening, dancing, and taking on overly ambitious Pinterest projects. Frequently forging lasting friendships from client relationships, Simone finds time spent one-on-one invaluable. Getting to know individual preferences and histories is key to her professional philosophy and client commitment.
Simone is an engaging, positive, proactive client advocate, who is honored by the opportunity to serve. Her enthusiasm and upbeat energy come through immediately, and her knowledge and dedication ensure your satisfaction.
