Oakland Real Estate

Hello, I'm Hamid Grinage with Better Homes and Gardens Mason McDuffie real estate in Oakland. I've been selling real estate in Oakland and surrounding areas for the past 11 years, and I have put together this website using the latest technology to help assist you in your home search. Here you can search for property in many different ways, including by District using the links in the "Communities" tab. You can search for homes, request a private showing of any home(s) you are interested in, and get in depth info on neighborhood demographics and market trends all in one place. One of the newest features of this site is the addition of videos to help educate about various topics including the current state of the market. This site is automatically updated with new listings and price changes every 24 hours, more often than most other property search engines available to the public. MLS listings that are pending sale will not be displayed.

Maps and Directions-You can easily see where a house is located, get a streetview of the property, check out the walkscore as well as find out what schools and types of businesses are in the area. You can save your favorite listings and easily access them later, as well as share them via email with friends and family.

Buying Real Estate

You can read all about the process of buying a home, as well as find out about all the newest developments happening in the City. Oakland is leading the Nation's housing recovery according to the National Association of Realtors. On average, our real estate is selling faster compared to any other City in the Country, and multiple offer situations are becoming the norm as our inventory is historically low. We are moving back in the direction of a sellers' market, compared to the buyers market of the previous several years. We are here to walk you through the process of buying and make the experience as easy and stress free as possible...from beginning to end.

Selling Real Estate

Selling your home for the best price possible requires that the correct preparation and strategy is used for your particular property. No two situations are the same, and it's part of my job to determine the best course of action in order to provide the best result possible. We are constantly training and improving our ability to use technology to make transactions as easy as possible for all parties involved. Making sure your property is visible online is one of the best ways to make sure your property is seen by as many potential buyers as possible, and this is an area that we feel is very important in todays market. If you are wondering what your property is worth, simply fill out our Free Home Evaluation request form and I will send you a market analysis within 24 hours.


We have a great selection of Condos which are mostly concentrated in the Downtown area and West Oakland. Jack London Square, The Uptown and Lake Merritt Oakland are where some of the Cities most desireable condos are located. There are also some very exciting condo developments happening in the City, including Brooklyn Basin which is the largest development in Oakland in over 50 years. This project will bring over 3000 residential units to the market.

Using Technology To Serve our Clients

Virtual Tours, Mobile Apps, Personalized Video Presentations and Electronic Signatures are just a few examples of how technology is helping us best serve our clients. Are you out of the area but interested in seeing more of a particular property? We can do a short video in HD quality of any property you are interested in and email it to you so you can learn more without leaving your home. Short on time? We utilize electronic signature software which allows you to sign documents via email..even on your smartphone! Gone are the days of faxing documents and needing wet signatures on everything-we strive to be as paperless as possible. 

So please, take a look around and contact us with any questions you might have. Whether you need to buy or sell, and whether it's your first home or a multi-million dollar estate, we are here to make it happen.
