The Olsen Family

"Ana, being a Contractor Builder has giving me the opportunity to work with many of your peers. But I must tell you that after having you sell my 25 houses over a twenty year period we have worked together, you are a true professional and the best in your industry.   AS I retire my wife and I, want to thank you for all the years of dedication, honesty and professional service you have provided to us. Your advice was always on target depending on the many up and down markets to insure our sales were always a success. You became a member of our family and advocated for us fiercely. We remain grateful for all the years we had the pleasure to work with you."

"Ana Zimmank did an outstanding job in guiding me to bring my home to be market ready. She was able to sell my home in Moraga in 10 days. She provided useful recommendations as to how to prepare the house in its best light. She was able to identify reputable professionals who assisted in the effort. The house was staged beautifully and Ana worked hand-on under extreme pressure to make sure the house was ready to show. This is the third time I have done business with Ana as both Buyer and Seller, and she has always risen to the occasion to get the job done well. As a very experienced Broker with valuable knowledge about the local market and community, Ana is someone I can trust for advice, and is a pleasure to work with. Thanks again for your great help."

"Dear Ana, I want to thank you for your outstanding service on my behalf in selling my home in Piedmont and helping me buy my new home in Pleasant Hill. You know the right people, you leave no detail unattended. You are thoroughly acquainted with the laws. No person should ever feel insecure giving you their property to place on the market for sale. Your dedication is admirable and your negotiating skills are superb. I do want to keep in touch and many good wishes." 

Rick & Georgia

"Last year in 2015, we decided to purchase a second house to use as a rental home. We looked in Lafayette. Our son and his family are now living in it. We had some specific criteria. With Ana's assistance, we found a place after making offers on several properties with her help. There were several offers on the residence and ours prevailed again. Ana worked efficiently with us through the closing process. Ana, in fact, saved us $20,000 in the end by renegotiating the sales price with the listing agent and seller.   In summary, Ana Zimmank is a true professional Realtor. She is knowledgeable, honest, dependable. She represents her client's needs and desires. Because of her many years of experience with sales and purchases in the Lamorinda area, she is able to make this often stressful time a lot bearable. We highly recommend Ana Zimmank." 

Jim & Carolynn

"We have bought and sold three homes using Ana Zimmank of Coldwell Banker in Orinda as our Realtor. In 2003, we moved from our home in Moraga to our current home in Lafayette. This move came after we gave her our criteria of finding a home with a great view, within a certain price range and one allowing us to keep our Proposition 13 tax base. She was diligent in assisting us. She helped us make offers for several places but other buyers offered more. We were out of town when she found our current home. Things happened very quickly when we saw this house and she helped us craft the winning offer out of four others that evening. We put ours on the market within a few weeks. She helped us prepare it and stage it to be shown. Several offers were received within a day or two of the open house and it sold for over the listing price because Ana knew how to price it to encourage multiple buyers."

Dieter & Sally B.

"It is my great pleasure to give Ana Zimmank an A+ for her performance in our most recent real estate transaction in Orinda. My wife, Sally, and I have known Ana for many years and we had used her services from Coldwell Banker three times in the past. After many hours of discussions and exhausting opinions of professional and licensed contractors and inspectors which Ana had tirelessly engaged for this researching process of our choices, we decided to forego the expensive upgrading and time consuming repairs and put the house into MLS, 'As Is', inviting multiple offers during two weekends of 'Open House' showings in late November. A most acceptable cash offer of about 10% above asking price crystallized shortly after the second 'Open House' showing with several 'Back-up' offers. Escrow closed before the end of the year. Ana's many years of expertise and thorough knowledge of our local market conditions became our reliable tools to bring this potentially problematic transaction to a most satisfying conclusion. We are most happy to recommend her services unconditionally to anybody and wish you Ana a continued success."

Lucille & Peter

"Ana, I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us in the sale of our home in Moraga. Your "advice" has always been on target for the market. You have helped me with the preparation of our home with your efficient contacts, flooring, painting, inspections, and of course, your quickly-dropping-your-Christmas-plans-to-help-stage-and-sell-our-home. This was truly extraordinary on your part. You have done a lot. Ana. I have you to thank for all this. You have been a blessing in our lives. We will always remember your work, help, and advice through this under the gun, stressful time." 

David Barbara

"Ana, thank you for our wonderful 16 year business relationship on the purchases and sales of 6 of our properties. You have never disappointed us on your professionalism, advice, and caring attitude toward us. You have always been there for our needs and we have felt protected and secured by your advice. But, most of all, thank you for always keeping after our best interest at heart."

"Ana Zimmank helped me buy my home in Walnut Creek and sold my previous house in Dublin. She was extremely efficient on both transactions as a Listing Agent and Selling Agent. She is a patient and thorough Realtor, taking me to see houses in different price ranges in many different areas in the East Bay over a period of several months. She gave me very good advice about each of the properties I considered. When my first offer on the house I ultimately bought was rejected. Ana continued to work with me and to show me other properties. She is an incredible negotiator on behalf of her clients. Ana kept me apprised of any developments concerning the houses I had considered. When the house I'd made an offer on (which had been rejected) stayed on the market, she helped me step in again and craft a compromise offer that both the buyer and seller could live with. She persevered because she knew I wanted the home. She was able to help me weather an extremely unusual situation with an emotional distraught seller who did not want to give possession at closing. And after that, she was able to offer me excellent advice on updating and decorating the home. She knows contractors in every related field who were able to help me." I am glad I hired Ana as my Realtor and recommend her highly."

"Ana, thank you for the integrity and attention to detail which you demonstrated as my Realtor in selling my home in Moraga last summer. I really appreciate the fact that you were able to sell it on a private sale and I didn't have to go through the ordeal of having to keep my home in a model home condition. Ana, you did an impressive job and still you were able to sell it for more than its listed price. Grateful forever." 

Becky and Mike

"We were new to the state and were concerned about buying a house in California. We had heard about how complicated it was to purchase a house here. Luckily we met Ana Zimmank of Coldwell Banker, Orinda. We first talked with her at an open house she was showing. She was very helpful and forthcoming in answering our questions. After talking with several other agents, we decided to work with Ana. We worked with Ana over a period of several months. Throughout that time she had explained the pros and cons of each house and by the time we actually found our home. I felt I had learned quite a bit about real estate in Costa Contra County. She truly knows her business. Every step of the way, she answered all our questions with expertise."
