It looks like Google the next Tech company setting their sights on Oakland. As reported in the San Franciso Business Times, Google has signed a lease at the Fruitvale BART transit station. This will be Google’s first Oakland location.
According to sources stated in the article, the idea is for Google to train local residents in technology and entrepreneurship. The center is estimated to open in October.
The Fruitvale Transit Village is a mixed use complex with retail, office and housing developed and owned by the Unity Council, a local non-profit.
This arrival in Oakland appears to dovetail into Googles effort to ramp up its civic efforts after the tech giant has often been called out for lack of diversity in hiring practices. The full extend of the Oakland location and exactly what type of business services that will offered still remains to be seen.
Hello! I am a Real Estate consultant working and living in the California East Bay (Oakland, Alameda, Piedmont, Berkeley area) with my husband and two young boys. I am a transplant from New Jersey and have been living on the West Coast for the last 17 years. I became a Real Estate Consultant because I enjoy working with people, and helping clients find the homes of their dreams, or reap the benefits of their investment in Bay Area real estate. It’s important to me to listen to your needs, provide the highest level of service and follow through on what needs to be done to and help you achieve your real estate goals.
As more and more consumers begin their search for real estate-related information on the Internet, it is critical that real estate professionals are well educated in the use of technology to the benefit of both the consumer and the agent and/or broker.
Realizing the importance of technology training, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) now offers its members the e-PRO certification course -- the only technology certification program offered by NAR. The program is designed to prepare real estate professionals to make the most of Internet technology and to identify, evaluate, and implement new Internet business models. The elite group of course graduates represents only one percent of all REALTORS in the country including Lisa Cartolano of Alain Pinel Realtors.
QSC (Quality Service Certification) is a new training program for real estate professionals. It requires agents to follow specific procedures and introduces standards of practice for the benefit of the consumer.
When consumers spend significant dollars for a service, they expect consistency, reliability, accountability and responsiveness from that professional service provider. Until now, the absence of service standards in the real estate industry contributed to the inconsistency of satisfaction and value experiences by the home seller and home buyer. Thus the Quality Service Certification program was created to offer greater value to the home buyer and home seller by providing consistent, reliable, accountable and responsive service for every real estate transaction. this service is provided by a Quality Service Certified real estate practitioner.
