Why We Love Berkeley
- Over the past few years we have bought several units in the metro area.
- Our acquisition managers love living in Berkeley and truly embrace the culture and community.
- We love the weather, scenery, and ample outdoor activities.
- Since we have "boots on the ground" in Berkeley, we know the real estate market well and can meet you in person to look at your property.
Are You In An "Unusual" Housing Situation?
Facing divorce? Job loss? Transfer? Can’t keep up with the payments?
Do you keep finding yourself saying, I need to" sell my house fast!"
The fact is that many times property owners find themselves in “unusual” situations with a house that they need to liquidate quickly.
In our 30 years of buying properties, we’ve bought houses that had peeling paint, doors falling off hinges, and even properties where had squatters had begun living in them. And, we’ve purchased hundreds of properties that were in great shape!
The point is that the condition of your house simply doesn’t matter. We can offer you a fair, market-based price for your house, and help you with your “problem property”.
If you’re like most of the hundreds of property owners we’ve helped out, the last thing you want to deal with is long waiting periods, expensive realtors fees, and a long, frustrating process to find a buyer for your house.
But what if you could sell your house without paying a single cent in realtor fees? What if you could skip the long, painful process of ushering dozens of strangers through your property in the hopes they might make you an offer?
Imagine keeping 100% of the sales price of your house, rather than paying anywhere from 6% to a whopping 10% in closing costs! Instead of having to pay realtor’s fees, title fees, repairs, and renovations, you could pay nothing and allow us to make you a fair, cash offer for your property.
Imagine being able to offload your unit within 14 days to a trusted company with a 30-year history of dealing fairly with homeowners, and that has purchased and holds over $110 million of property. Our motto is that we don’t make a sale right now, we make it in the 30 years after when we turn the home into a rental property. We’re on your side.
With an A+ rating from the BBB, Stewardship Properties buys your property as-is, with no needed repair work from you at all.
Plus, we only make fair-market offers, which means that its rare for homeowners to bring any cash to closing.

When We Buy Your Property, We ONLY Make Fair Offers!
At Stewardship Properties, we buy houses in Berkeley CA in any condition or situation. We truly believe in treating homeowners with dignity and respect, especially during a time that is often very emotional.
We’re a reputable company with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. We have dozens of employees who have extensive experience buying and selling homes in Berkeley.
As such, we don’t believe in “low-balling”.
If you decide to sell your home to us, we do a thorough assessment of your home, and make you a fair-market value offer based on comparable homes in a similar condition to yours. We always strive to make you an offer that completely takes care of the loan on the home so you walk away with no further obligation.
In most cases, homeowners walk away with cash in their hand.
(There are some rare cases where homeowners are upside down on their loans. In those situations, we will often work with you to take over the payment and get you out of the property.)
The fact is, when we purchase your home, you actually save a significant amount of time, stress, and money.
We Make Our Money From Negotiated Discounts
Not From Low-Balling Homeowners
We make our money through our exclusive network of contractors who give us heavily discounted rates on repairs in exchange for access to our large volume of home repair projects.
To give you an idea of what this look like, a typical kitchen remodel can cost anywhere from $30k to $75k. We typically have our contractors perform the same work for anywhere from $7k to $15k.
That means that our profit margin doesn’t come from low-balling you as the homeowner, but rather by creating a mutually beneficial arrangement with the contractors who perform the repair work that is inevitably necessary with almost every home we purchase.
We will never ask you to perform any repairs, or clean up the home in any way. Take what you want. Leave what you don’t. No need to haul away old furniture, trash, or debris.
We take care of 100% of restoration and clean-up work.
Happy Homeowners Who Have Worked With The Stewardship Properties Team
See why Folks love working with Stewardship!
"One of the few companies in this world I can say I both trust and admire. Having gotten to know the owner, they are not your typical "out for highest profits by any means" company. They clearly care about the folks they work with and help. Always on point, up front, and transparent. Would recommend to anyone looking to sell a home! Thanks for all your help!"
"I have done 2 transactions with Stewardship Properties now. They are fair and honest to work with. When we decided to sell again I went right back and didn't waste my time with others like I did before. I would definitely go back to them again"
"These guys are great. I dealt with Ryan earlier this month and found him to be honest, straight forward and very understanding. I referred them to an out of town friend who was selling a house via an estate. They made a great offer and closed the deal without any problems. I would not hesitate to give them more business in the future."
"Amazing company to work with! My husband accepted a transfer opportunity with his company that left us needing to sell our home quickly to relocate to another state. We had some personal issues to deal with regarding the sale of the home that had to be resolved and we had 8 weeks before we actually were moving. Stewardship stayed in touch throughout the process and we closed just 3 day prior to our move, which is exactly when we wanted! Their offer was very fair for our property and we happily accepted! Finding this company took a huge amount of stress off of our move as we knew our home was sold and closing on our schedule! I would definitely recommend using this company!!"
"Had a great experience. The have an A rating with the BBB and if you want a good company to work with to sell your home I recommend them. Fast closing. And they work their hardest to help you in your time frame. We appreciate their hard work. Thanks guys and God bless you! "
"Deal the with these guys personally and they've are definitely trustworthy people who are about their business. I sold them a property in which they close within 7 days. Will continue to do business with them. If you're looking for a hassle free way to sell your house let them make you an offer."
"Wanted to say thanks for the help with buying our Louisville house. Only you know how weird of a situation it was, but you acted like it was no big deal and were professional throughout the entire process. I'll be recommending your services to others. Thanks again!"
