Not often does a home come up in Piedmont that is under $1,500,000. We can’t report the sale price yet, but these buyers will be happy once they settle in, do a little work and even expand the home down the road. If I got my hands on it I could make it shine. I do not look at a home the way it is, I see it in my minds eye imagining what I can do it. If you are interested in my vision I am always happy to share my ideas. (There is NO obligation nor any fee for a consult and chat). — Take Note — This living room has been virtually staged. Step Inside

Meet Stanly

Stanly Ranch opened April 2022 and is our recent favorite local destination retreat.

Stanly Ranch, Napa’s Newest Luxury Resort is another magnificent property in the Auberge Resorts Collection. We discovered this lovely new property in July and had the opportunity to celebrate my birthday at the spa and poolside with friends.
The resort reminds me of DC Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona, a small community where we had a second home for many years.
Go for the day or overnight. It’s about 50 minutes from the East Bay and just across the highway from the Carneros Resort + Spa, another favorite of ours — Click to Preview – Relax and ENJOY!

It’s hard to believe I have known them since I was probably 5 years old!

“SERVICE FROM DEBBI & ADAM WAS FANTASTIC”

We have known Debbi since she was a little girl and have watched her progress thru the real estate business over the last 30 years. When we called her we expected to get good service but we were honestly wowed by both of them. Debbi, Adam and Chase are professional, knowledgeable but more important than anything, they both had a sense of urgency. And I mean rapid and accurate response. I have a consulting business and try to provide rapid urgent response to my clients. And I got that and more from Debbi and Adam. I would recommend them in a second, no conditions. They are good. And we got what we wanted. Best, Len and Mary Bertain ★ Read Other Testimonials

73 Questions with Debbi DiMaggio

Neighborhoods November 8, 2021

Piedmont

The City of Piedmont is a charter city of approximately 11,000 residents located in the beautiful Oakland Hills, overlooking the San Francisco Bay.  The city, which is virtually built out, consists of established, high-quality single family homes on quiet tree-lined streets. Piedmont is centrally located within a few minutes from Oakland and San Francisco on the West and Concord and Walnut Creek on the East.  Within Piedmont’s 1.7 square-mile area there are five city parks and numerous landscaped areas which offer wooded paths, tennis courts, children’s playgrounds and picnic facilities.

Family, Home, Events and Lifestyle

A personal perspective: Debbi grew up in Piedmont, attended Wildwood Elementary School, Piedmont Junior High now called Piedmont Middle School and Piedmont High. Debbi graduated in 1982 from PHS and from UC Berkeley in 1987. For all the same reasons she enjoyed and benefited from Piedmont are the same reasons she and husband and partner Adam Betta decided to move their family to town.

– The excellent school system tops the list. One must live in town to attend the top-rated Piedmont schools. The high school is similar to a private school with just under 800 students, grades 9-12.

– Piedmont is a tight community where everyone knows one another and watches out for one another. Many of the children have known one another since they were toddlers hanging out in the Piedmont Park. With that noted, the Piedmont kids are also very welcoming to new students and look forward to meeting the new kids on the block.

– Piedmont is a place where kids can grow up in a small town environment, yet are not isolated. Piedmont is ideally situated near the cultural diversity of Oakland and Berkeley and convenient to shops, cafes, boutiques and a variety of restaurants.

– Transportation and alternative routes – Piedmont is just a 20 minute drive of San Francisco and can be accessed via BART, bus, car or the informal car pool. The East Bay has easy access to both the San Francisco Airport and the Oakland Airport. The San Mateo Bridge, the Bay Bridge and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge provide alternative routes to your destination, unlike, for instance, in Marin County where public transportation and alternative routes are limited and the 101 freeway very congested. ( A beautiful place, however. )

– Easily accessible to world renown and Debbi’s personal favorites for day trips or weekend overnights: Lake Tahoe, Napa, Sonoma, Pebble Beach, Carmel, Monterey, Big Sur and with the Oakland airport so close, Park City, Utah, Scottsdale, Arizona, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, even Cabo San Luca plus many other cites are just a hop, skip and a jump away on Southwest or Alaska Air.

– Another personal favorite Debbi points out is the giving back and community service aspect. Piedmont families and students are very active in giving back to the schools, community and others less fortunate in the neighboring communities, hospitals and organizations. Students have a variety of opportunities to participate in philanthropy. One of the most popular high school volunteer program is the Mexico Trip. The Piedmont Community Church offers this program once a year and fills up immediately. The students spend one week building homes for families just outside of Tijuana giving up their Spring Break to help others. It’s an incredible and moving experience for these affluent kids to experience. Or young woman can join NCL, the National Charity League, a mother-daughter organization who support and volunteer their time to various organizations. Piedmont has an incredible number of boys involved in Boy Scouts, many who have become Eagle Scouts. These are just a few of the many opportunities offered to our Piedmont kids and young adults.

In Piedmont, kids and families are involved, no matter what it is, they are active, giving and compassionate citizens.

For the Home | Considering a Remodel

  • Start with the Public Works Department at City Hall | The most effective way to get your remodel done quickly and with relative ease is to hire a local contractor and architect who knows what will pass in Piedmont and what will not. However, neighbors are one factor that cannot be guaranteed. Get to know your neighbors and discuss your plans ahead of time to assist with a more seamless process.
