Oakland East Bay Area Real Estate


Mr. Don Askey is a phenomenal real estate agent. He sold my families Rockridge home and we received 9 offers well over the asking price. We found him to be honest, professional, and attentive. I would recommend him a a heart beat!

Don is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. He helped me both with buying and then selling a property in Oakland. He is incredibly professional, knowledgable and patient. He will work with you to get the best results possible. My property was so incredibly complicated to sell and he did everything he could to get it sold. He knows Oakland real estate and neighborhoods and is a pleasure to work with. I’d give him 10 stars if I could!!!

Don did an outstanding job guiding me through the Bay Area real estate market. I was truly impressed by his can do spirit and ability to listen and subsequently show my wife and I the best available properties. He worked closely with me on two short sales and the eventual foreclosure I purchased. Don actually recommended the foreclosure and subsequently influenced me into viewing the property when I wanted to pass on it. Glad he pushed me in the right direction, best investment I’ve made to date! Don is an outstanding person and agent who I would recommend to my closest friend. Given the requirement to find another property in this market, I would use Don again without hesitation. He is the best!

I’m the Trustee of an estate and at the request of Trustor I contacted Don Askey of Oak Tree Realty to assist in the sale of the individual’s townhome in Hayward. She had used him in obtaining an appraisal on her home as a part of the settlement of her deceased’s husband’s estate a few years before, and had made a great and professional impression. Don turned out to be the perfect person to help me. He made suggestions of what needed to be done to the townhome in preparation for putting it on the market. He also assisted in making a lot of the needed arrangements leading up to the listing; all in an effort to ensure that the Estate obtain the best price possible. We ended up receiving 31 offers on the property and the final sale was $100,000 over the asking price.

I was so pleased with Don’s work that when my daughter decided to move back to the Bay Area from Sacramento, I put her in contact with Don to have him assist in her home purchase here. The market right in the Bay Area is quite tough, but Don worked hard and eventually located a wonderful home for her.

I would highly recommend Don to anyone who is need of a great agent. He’s easy to work with and is a very knowledgeable agent who looks after the best for his clients.

Don is the best realtor with whom I have worked. He helped us purchase a property, and sell two properties. He is professional, personable, and patient. He is also very honest. He excels at working with difficult personalities. If you want somebody who understands how nerve-wracking real estate is, who can gently guide you through the experience, Don Paul Askey is who I recommend.


Don is an amazing realtor. He not only helped me buy my home in California that was out of his immediate area, but he helped me sell it, even after I had relocated across the country. He got me the best price for my home and managed the entire process for me. He is extremely knowledgable about the industry and it’s laws and regulations. He saved me more than a couple of times. He would always return a call and always answered my questions no matter how many times I called or how small the question was. He is kind, generous, personable, professional and if I ever decide to relocate back to the Bay Area, he will be the first person I call.
