World-Class customer service, professionalism, integrity and a knack for negotiating are Don’s key ingredients for his success in his career.

The backbone of Don Askey’s business revolves around his philosophy of providing value to clients during all phases of their real estate needs – not just the transaction. With an impressive knowledge of most bay area cities’ neighborhoods/schools, and with an extensive network of quality industry experts such as handymen, pest control companies, electricians, landscapers, painters, stagers, property management, and inspectors.  Don’s goal for you is a stress-free journey through the process of buying or selling a home – likely one of the largest financial and emotional decisions you may make in your lifetime.

Dons’ process starts with client education and situational analysis and moves into negotiating the strongest terms for his clients to create informed and equitable decisions. Post transaction, your relationship will continue as Don guides and helps with future real estate needs.

Don is passionate about his community and volunteer work as well. Don and his wife have made their home in Oakland where they have raised three children.
