Ottavia is a very trustworthy, talented and knowledgeable agent. She is experienced, hardworking and smart and keeps up to date with current information. She will go above and beyond to help meet your needs. She was always available to us and never let us down.
She is compassionate yet strong.
During the sale of the house she took it upon herself to remedy issues with the house when we were not able to since we lived out of the area. She is absolutely the BEST of the BEST.   -WRC
We used Ottavia to do a Short Sale on our rental property and she made the whole thing painless. We can't thank her enough for her flexability, knowledge and step by step explaining of the whole process.
So if your looking for a Real Estate Agent who knows her stuff and willingness to go that extra distance for you.....Ottavia is your lady!!!
THANK YOU Ottavia you are one in a million!

Dear Ottavia: 

2011…what a year!  You sold two houses for me under less than optimal economic conditions and sold both for prices well within my financial targets.  You are truly an advocate, always looking out for the person you represent.  I appreciated your thorough analysis of the offers presented, making sure that contracts received from outside real estate agencies were free of items that might delay or ruin a deal.  And you really went the extra mile handling the sale of the second house after I moved out of state.  


It was a pleasure working with you (both times!) and I highly recommend you to others who are looking to sell their home.

Hi Ottavia,

We can't thank you enough for all of your efforts to conclude the sale of our home, especially in such a difficult real estate market.  As absentee sellers, we greatly appreciated your frequent updates, keeping us informed of the many showings and interested parties.  Your patience, attention to every detail and always positive attitude were essential to bringing the sale to a close.



Mike and Nancy, Southern California Coast


Hello Ottavia -
Just a brief note to thank you for your kindness during the sale of my mom's home in Oakland.  As you know, this was the third time the home was listed.  The first two attempts to sell the home with other agencies were not successful, and by comparison, the agents were not very helpful.  You, my dear, are a top-notch professional!

As I told you, you come highly recommended by our mutual acquaintance, Sal.  With your guidance, I was able to get the home listed and sold in the least amount of time for a good price considering today's economy... I am most grateful.  You ...never left me wondering "what's going on".  You can't put a price on courtesy and kindness!
Having to sell my mom's home was an emotional experience….. You helped me to keep things "real" and you provided me with the support I needed…...
I've seen the rest - you, Ottavia, are the best.  A very big THANK YOU to you, your husband, and the Deadrich staff.  Be well.
Sharon P, Oregon



Dear Ottavia,

Thank you for the expert service and advise you gave us while we were selling our property in San Leandro.

You were always there to help and answer any questions we had.  You also kept us on track while we had to make some decisions on what projects to work on.

You were very professional during the open houses and we believe that is what sold our house so fast.


Ron C. and Carmen R.



Ottavia's Buyers Tell of their Experiences



Ottavia represented us as the buyers of a short sale property in San Leandro and we couldn't have been happier with our experience.  Ottavia is very knowledgeable about the homes in the area we shopped around (Castro Valley and San Leandro).  She sincerely wants her clients to be in the right home and stays focused on that throughout the entire process. Ottavia is an experienced realtor and wonderful human being.  I have not stopped recommending her to anyone in need of a realtor (she was also recommended to us from a friend).  If you choose Ottavia for any of your home purchasing/selling needs, you should feel confident that you are working with one of the best.  -S.T....



Hello Ottavia: Just a quick note to again express my appreciation for the way you handled my transaction on the Lee Avenue property. We were just talking about you the other day. I’ll never forget that rainy open house day and thinking what a nice classy lady. Little did I know that this classy lady would soon be negotiating for me better than I thought possible. This classy lady turned into a tough as nails agent. I also appreciate the constant follow up and communication. Lastly, when I called you and told you I wanted to close escrow early I had no idea I would have the keys in my hands one week later. When I referred to you as “The best agent ever” I truly meant it. You are without a doubt the best of the best. I would recommend you to anyone. Can’t wait until you are able to see the house complete. You got my vision from day one. Thank you again and I am looking forward to seeing you soon. R. W…



When my wife and I finally decided we were serious about buying our first house, we began our search for a Realtor. We were unfortunate enough to run into a handful of unprofessional and less than honest realtors that made looking for a home dreadful.

We happened upon Ottavia who made home buying a pleasurable experience. She made us her priority and was always available when we needed her. She always made sure we aware of what was happening every step of the way, and helped us to the best of her ability when and if there were any snags.

The only thing we regret, is that we didn’t find her sooner! We had been looking for a house for almost 2 years. Several months after meeting Ottavia, we found exactly what we had been looking for and are now in the process of moving in!

" If you’re looking for a competent, professional and honest Realtor, look no more!"

"In 2010 I decided I was ready to purchase a home but wasn't exactly sure how to initiate the process. I searched online for an experienced Real Estate agent that could help me better understand the home buying process....that's when I found Ottavia Heppner. Ottavia is an experienced Real Estate agent. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she's also patient. Ottavia and I spent lots of time viewing listings together until I found the perfect home. I absolutely love it!!! It's been almost a year since I purchased my first home but Ottavia still keeps in contact with me. I highly recommend Ottavia to anyone who is in the housing market. I look forward to working with Ottavia for many years to come."

“I hired Ottavia as my agent after realizing her passion for getting to know me as a buyer and her williningness to go out of her way to help me find the property I was looking for. As an out town buyer, she was instrumental in helping what I needed to be taken care of like prescreening house that just came on the market but I could not be there till the weekend. I would not hesitate to call upon Ottaiva to help me with my next real estate venture.”




First of all, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the effort and time you have spent to make buying my first home as easy as it could have been.  I truly appreciate all the advice and information that you have provided through out our three month journey together.  You were the perfect real estate agent, always available, cheery, and willing to show me so many properties until I found the perfect one.  Your insight into real estate helped to guide me into the right house for me and my family.  Thank you for all the extra time you have spent on making sure the inspections are done properly, the loan is ready on time, and that we are on task to close in a timely fashion.  I would like to extend a welcome to you and your husband into our home when ever you feel up for it.  I will be sure to keep at least half a dozen of your business cards and calenders around for family and friends, so they can too find their dream homes.  Again, thank you for all your hard work, I promise it did not go unnoticed.


Thank you,



My name is Carrie.  

My parents took me to Hank Deadrich to find my first home in July of 2008. He introduced me to Ottavia Heppner and said she would be the one helping me look for a house and so the search was on.

We looked at so many houses I was beginning to think I would never find one, but Ottavia never gave up. She continued calling me every single day with more houses to look at.

Finally, we found the “right” one. I thank her for her persistence and the patience and kindness she showed me. I am grateful for all her hard work and helping my “first time buyer” experience go smoothly.


A Few Thoughts About Our Beautiful Bay Area



Often we forget how fortunate we are here in the East Bay, or as some would say, the San Francisco Bay area. I am standing in the office of a client, the television is on for the entertainment of those in the waiting room and when I look up, my attention is captured by a scene near a body of water, waves splashing gently onto the walkway. I think, oh to be there, how lovely; a beautiful Mediterranean seaside village.

The camera’s focus changes slightly and raises from the water toward the sky, a beautiful clear blue sky. Slowly, oh so very slowly, to the left something is starting to come into focus...the Golden Gate Bridge.

We are able to “play” tourist anytime that we so desire. Visit the sights that tourists come from around the world to see and long to remain here for the sights, the excellent weather, the varied cuisine.

Culture    We have the Opera, many live theater productions, museums, and observatories.

Education     Some of the finest educational facilities available are here. We have universities, colleges and numerous private schools of all descriptions.

Parks and Recreation    We have small neighborhood parks, aquatic parks and regional parks. Whether it’s a family picnic, a walk through the woods, a horseback ride or a dog walk...we have it all.

Housing     Our Bay Area offers many homes. There are grand old Victorians, stylish modern ranchers, Spanish style houses, craftsman bungalows and live-work lofts to mention just a few.

There is a home to make every dream come true. When it’s time to sell, call Ottavia. I may already have a buyer. 510-368-0658
