About Johanna K. Hall

As your partner, my purpose and passion is to make sure you are well taken care of, informed, and ready to make your best decisions.

Johanna K Hall

The embodiment of warmth and grace and always willing to help others, Johanna brings her heartfelt love of people, architecture, and the East Bay community to her successful career in real estate.

Johanna is known for putting in that extra effort for her clients—once sorting through bags of paper accidentally left behind, rescuing sensitive documents and family mementos for a client selling her widowed father’s home. A true people person, Johanna becomes friends with many of her clients—still corresponding with her first client from over 8 years ago. An avid hiker and snowshoer, Johanna is perhaps genetically predisposed to love the outdoors through her grandfather, Ansel F. Hall, who was the first Chief Naturalist and Chief Forester of the National Park Service, and instrumental in creating the first master plan for the East Bay Regional Parks system. Johanna is also a proficient cyclist who remembers fondly a cycling vacation in the Bordeaux region of France, where her grandmother traveled by steamship to marry Johanna’s grandfather.

We would use the Gunderman group again and again, if we had the opportunity. From the first time Johanna walked into our house her comments and body language expressed how unique and special she thought our house was. David, too, quickly grasped the "specialness" of our home. He said, "Our task is to find ways to convey how much more your house has to offer than merely it's 1300 square feet." They mostly used our furniture in staging, allowing our personality to shine through to others, and they acquiesced by not requiring us to paint all of the walls white, respecting our design sense. While sometimes this can be limiting to the imaginations of potential buyers, Johanna and David successfully struck a delicate balance. When we spoke with others who have used the Gunderman group someone said, "You might find some of their recommendations difficult to accept but trust them." We pass this same sage advice on to you. It is good advice. With David and Johanna's help, we found buyers to whom we could confidently pass along our home, buyers who we felt would cherish the house as we have and who would be kind, warm, endearing neighbors.

My uncle passed away and I was responsible for selling his home. I live out of town and I was looking for a realtor who would work with me and respect my wishes. Johanna was amazing to work with. She went above and beyond and found people to do minor repairs and cleanup for me. I was not familiar with the market or closing requirements of the area and she explained everything to me so that I knew what was expected. When the house went on the market it sold in less than 48 hours. I enjoyed working with her and I would highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a dedicated realtor.

Johanna's professionalism, local area expertise was why we selected her to sell our Alameda home. Since we have sold our home, now I can truly give a detailed review of Johanna. #1 Integrity and communication. Johanna helped prep the home by sourcing the her connections. From her connections, we were able to stick to a very timely deadline. Without missing a beat, Johanna was always a step ahead, her updates were clear and very detailed. If there was an issue, Johanna had immediate solutions so we can keep on track. At times, we would have to take calls after work and without hesitation Johanna was there to hop on a call. #2, Professionalism, expertise and sincerity. It's really hard to find realtor who can do it all, but that's Johanna. We felt assured she would handle things well, especially her targeted advertising strategies to draw more people to attend the open houses. Throughout the negotiations, Johanna helped us timely navigate the pros and cons of each offer. This is where Johanna's expertise came in, her knowledge of the comps, what's going around in the Alameda really gave us that edge. Johanna's sincerity also helped us gather more information from each offer and that made it very easy for us to make a quick decision. If you are looking for an expert realtor in the East Bay, Johanna should on the top of your list to talk to. From beginning to the timely sale of our home it's been an absolute pleasure to work with Johanna.

I met Johanna many years ago when she helped to sell our neighbor's house after the wife of an elderly couple passed away. The husband moved to an assisted living facility. Their daughter who lived in another state has contacted Johanna to take care of every single aspect of the procedure and sell the house. At that time I have already worked from home, so I witnessed of the every day activity. Johanna 'inherited' a fully furnished house, built in the 60's, from the original owner and was asked to sell it. First she sold / donated the personal belongings / furniture, then started working on the house itself from the bottom to the top. She has scheduled her team and the house was renewed. When everything was completed and staged, she invited the old gentleman to see the staged house. He, the first owner, could not believe that it was the same house where he lived for nearly 50 years. The house was sold and we had very nice new neighbor. So, after this short introduction, when several years later, we decided to move out of the state, there was no question who should be contacted. I just wanted someone who is taking care of everything from zero to the end. This person was Johanna. She provided us with the name of a great moving company and we have moved cross country in the middle of the pandemic, in the middle of the winter, in the middle of the holiday. We gave her the house key and ask her to sell the house. Very simple. And, she did it very well, more than 30% of the asking price. If I ever move again, I am going to contact her...

If you want an agent who will look out for your best interests, choose Johanna. I have worked with her both in the purchase of a property and then, about five years later, with the sale of a property. During the purchase phase, Johanna fought hard to get me the best possible price. And, her fine management of the recent sale resulted in an abundance of offers that exceeded my expectations. She is well-organized, detail-oriented and tenacious. She has extensive experience and knowledge about the housing market. Johanna is a tough negotiator. She is creative, she is honest and she's a lot of fun to work with!

Johanna is the most caring and exceptional agent one can have in the process of buying or selling a home. She is very professional and well versed on the market and her honesty is remarkable. If you want the best realtor to market your home Johanna is the person you need.

Johanna helped me sell the condo my mother had lived in before her passing. She was so caring, detailed and amazingly attentive throughout the process. I had gone in with the idea I would need to spend a lot of money to get the condo on the market. It was in basically great shape, it just needed a refresh. Johanna found all the painters, stagers, inspectors and electricians, all of which did great work for great value. At the time of showing, the condo looked brand new. The end result was a bidding situation and an offer that was generously over asking. Johanna then helped me choose the best offer. A few months later, after we decided to move to Palm Springs, Johanna introduced us to the agent that found us our forever home. She is not only gifted at her job, she is such a great person to know. Choose Johanna and you won't be sorry.

I worked with Johanna on the sale of my father's home (in Hayward). We were able to sell the home quickly, and received several offers due to her knowledge of the area. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

It is our pleasure to recommend Ms. Johanna Hall as a real estate agent. She worked very diligently in selling our Alameda house and was able to obtain a much better price than we hadanticipated. She went beyond the call of duty preparing it for sale: arranging for donations of furniture, etcto local charities, selecting contractors for needed improvements, code requirements and staging, then overseeing the entire project. She has a cheerful personality and was available at all times of the day by phone. Again, we sincerely recommend Johanna as a true professional: an excellent real estate agent.

I was introduced to Johanna Hall when I was in need of a real estate agent to list my parents' home. I have bought and sold several homes in several states and worked with many very qualified agents. However, this situation was unique to me in that I live in a different state than where my parents' home was located and their house needed a great deal of work done on many levels before it could be put up for sale. I was very concerned about how challenging and complicated a project it would be particularly in light of the fact that I would be dealing with it long distance. As it turned out, my concerns were completely unnecessary. With Johanna's tremendous efforts, handling every issue from start to finish, the house turned out beautifully and sold almost immediately after listing it. There are not enough words to say how grateful I am to Johanna. I would recommend her 110%. Not only is she a consummate professional but she is also an incredible person.
Jayne Hopkins
I highly recommend Johanna Hall as a professional and outstanding Realtor, based on my experience of selling our home of forty years in Alameda. Johanna was indispensable through the process from start to finish. She worked tirelessly through to completion of the sale, and brought results that delighted us.

I can't say enough about Johanna and her ability to assist in buying real estate. She assisted me in purchasing a rental property in Alameda as well as a vacation home in Nevada City. She delivered both at exceptional prices and stayed on top of ALL details as the properties closed. I would highly recommend Johanna.

Realtor Johanna Hall has been Selling & Buying Houses for 25+ years in Alameda and the East Bay Counties and she is darn good at it!! Johanna helped me Buy a House near my son/DIL & grandbaby in Alameda, California. She got me just the House I REALLY wanted!! Johanna was referred to me by my sister Sarah, a Realtor in the San Francisco Area and I am so grateful for the introduction!! Johanna was calm, clear, helpful, direct, on top of things, proactive, detail oriented, kind & nice to me and SAVVY on getting me the House I wanted in this VERY competitive Bay Area Market!! I told Johanna my plan & what and how I wanted to handle things. She told me what she thought and what we should do. Each step of the way we discussed and made decisions together. Johanna reminded me it was a Process, and I likened it to a Learning Curve, and each House we looked at or made an Offer on, I did learn and I got more patient with the Process. Mostly because Johanna was patient with me. Telling me she loved showing me Homes, and whatever time it takes is just fine. Johanna sent me Listings as soon as they came out, as per my desires. And when the paradigm of my desires shifted so did the variety of Listings. Johanna always heard what I was needing, thinking and feeling and she responded accordingly to make looking for a Home as doable & enjoyable as possible. Johanna also used her many years and large network of Realtors to help inform me of Homes Listed, or not yet Listed. I needed to go out of the country after I had put an Offer on the House I wanted and Johanna made sure everything was taken care of before I left, even with a few contingency plans in case needed. And they were needed! I felt very well cared for and that my best interests were Johanna's highest concerns. Johanna totally had my back!! There are many Realtors to choose from. Many good Realtors. JOHANNA is one of the GREAT Realtors with 3+ decades of experience!!! Rest assured, Johanna's experience will get you the Home you want and the BEST deal On the Market!

Johanna is AMAZING. My husband and I were first time home buyers. We knew nothing about the process at all. Not only was Johanna able to help us, but she also consistently went above and beyond and did all her homework about all the listings and areas that we were interested in. We're living in our dream home today. She was not only able to find the perfect house for me and my family, but we were also able to move in without missing a beat. My expectations for Johanna were very high and she exceeded on every one.
Candice & Drew Shamrock
Johanna took the time to listen to my needs and without any prior knowledge of the area best direct me as to where to purchase my house. I can't say enough about her work ethic and her willingness to go above and beyond to help her clients. I plan to work with her again and wouldn't even consider another Realtor.
Jolanta Bielecki
Johanna helped me find the perfect home! She listened to my requirements and showed me homes that fit my needs. I didn't know Alameda well, and felt she gave me solid advice on not only the homes she showed me, but the areas where they were located. She is very patient, listens well and did not try to up-sell me into a home that was out of my financial reach. When deciding between two homes she took time to talk through all my questions and concerns and helped guide me to the perfect choice. A year later, not only do I have a great home in a fantastic neighborhood, but my home has already gone up in value! Johanna was very responsive both in email and on the phone which I really appreciated. Best of all she is super positive and is fun to be around. I would highly recommend.
