Realtor Partner

I bring deep knowledge of Berkeley, Oakland and surrounding communities to my role as a realtor.  I’m an East Bay native, CAL graduate, and happy East Bay homeowner.

I began my career in the public relations and communications business, working first in New York, and then for the San Francisco Symphony, where I helped introduce Michael Tilson Thomas to the Bay Area. I spent the next fifteen years raising two daughters in Palo Alto, where I also began my real estate career.  The highly competitive Silicon Valley market was an invaluable real estate training ground, giving me hands-on negotiating experience in many high-end sales. ​

Success in real estate requires dedication, drive and impeccable attention to detail.I love managing the many contractors and specialists required to successfully prepare a home for sale. My extensive knowledge of home renovation and design allows me to help my clients make smart choices in presenting their property to the market. It is also helpful to buyers as they consider possible renovations or updates to a home they are considering for purchase.

Perhaps most important, I bring a calm voice to the sometimes stressful process of buying or selling a home. Through honest information and a local’s understanding of the East Bay’s dynamic real estate market, I help clients understand their options, and how I can help them reach their goals. Buying or selling a home is often one of our most important financial and emotional decisions.  My promise is to represent my clients with integrity, a warm and collaborative style, and a singular commitment to put their needs above all else. | 510-365-4703


We recommend Isabelle enthusiastically without any reservation. She is meticulous, thoughtful, patient, client focused, responsive. She sold our home off-market, finding us the perfect buyers and negotiating the transaction with the utmost professionalism and integrity. We always knew where we stood in the process, and she made sure our interests were top-of-mind.

Through a sometimes confusing process, Isabelle provided sound advice and was always focused on our ultimate goal (getting the most money for our home). She was diligent in her negotiations and saved our deal from falling through several times. A true professional!

As first-time buyers, we were very careful about who we wanted to hire to help us find a home. Isabelle spent many hours explaining every step of the process. She helped guide our search with patience and respect for our personal preferences. She talked to inspectors, contractors, bankers, and insurance agents on our behalf, and helped us interpret reports that we might not have understood. We are thrilled to be in our new home, thanks to Isabelle.

My husband and I whole heartedly recommend Isabelle Cole for any family relocating to the Bay Area.  She was such a valuable asset to us in our search for a home, as we were relocating from Houston and couldn't physically be in CA to inspect each property as it became available. She earned our trust and now we are in a beautiful home in Los Altos. She took the time to understand our needs and utilized her experience and expertise to make the whole transition a more peaceful and pleasant experience. She has been in the area for many years and knows the market, but most of all she is a true professional and it was a pleasure to work with her.
