“Customer service is key in real estate. It’s important to know what my clients expect, what the market will bear, and effectively communicate their alignment. And, it is important to never lose sight of the fact that real estate is likely one of the largest financial investments my clients will make,” said DeBardeleben. “Harbor BayRealty provides exceptional professional and technological support, allowing me to focus my energy and expertise on facilitating transactions.”
Real estate was a natural progression in Justine Francis’ career, following a ten year career in Housing and Community Development in the United Kingdom. Francis’ personable, high-energy nature and systematic approach to real estate are her keys to success. “Providing my clients with comprehensive statistical analysis, property development strategies, and effective marketing tools guide them in making well-informed decisions,” said Francis. “Harbor Bay Realty is an excellent match with my personal and professional principles, and I am delighted to be a part of this well-established firm.”
“Effective communication is essential in building successful, long-lasting client relationships,” said Francis. “I take pride in taking the time to get to know and understand my clients, as each is entirely unique. “It’s the most rewarding part of my job!”
Anne DeBardeleben graduated with honors from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Accounting. She resides in Alameda with her husband, Dan, and two children. She enjoys theater, movies, cycling, and her Scottie dogs.
