Meet Alonya Buford

I was born and raised in Oakland and have extensive knowledge of Oakland and the East Bay. My appreciation of real estate began as a little girl with me going to work with my father, who is a retired land surveyor. This early introduction to real estate and land development peeked my interest in the business. My passion for people, unparalleled commitment to serving others and desire to always lead with integrity fuels my love of this business.

My corporate experience includes working for Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), Verizon Wireless and Kaiser Permanente, where I held positions in Corporate Real Estate and Capital Projects. My experience in these positions give me in depth knowledge of budgets, schedules and negotiations. This experience with my personal passion for business has propelled my real estate career, as I am able to give clients realistic expectations of the market.

What Our Clients Say

"If I could give a rating of ONE BILLION STARS, I would in a heartbeat!! Words cannot express how truly grateful My husband and I are for Alonya Buford at The Bridge Group. We are both Oakland CA natives and really wanted to purchase our first home in Oakland. Due to the real estate boom in Oakland, we were very discouraged about finding an affordable home to suit the needs of our family. OMG!!! Alonya was a savior! She was adamant about finding us a home in Oakland that fit our needs even when we gave up on it ourselves. We closed on our first home in OAKLAND on 9/6/2016 only after a few months of searching. The entire home buying process can be quite stressful as most people know, but Alonya is very knowledgeable and super informative in all areas of the entire process. She always reassured my husband and I that there is no need to worry. She kept us in the loop on EVERYTHING! She never showed a sign of frustration throughout the process, even when I think she probably should have (my husband and I can be quite a headache with questioning everything). Alonya remained professional,calm, but very vigilant when dealing with the lender and seller. My husband and I are so happy in our new home and we owe it all to her hard work and dedication. I highly recommend Alonya at The Bridge Group for all of your real estate needs. Do yourself a favor and contact her now, you will NOT regret it!!!"

Maya G.

"Alonya is a phenomenal agent! She is most knowledgeable about her field, demonstrates an amazing positive manner way of connecting with her clients and presents the most up to date information that will assist you in making an excellent choice(s). She goes the "extra-mile" for you. So, if you are looking for a realtor who is outstanding, contact Alonya immediately."

Adisa A.

"Alonya is absolutely WONDERFUL!!! As first time home buyers, my husband and I went in without really knowing the ropes or what to expect -- we just knew we found our perfect first home (we just didn't know how to get it!). After contacting Alonya, she sprang into action and had the perfect mix of calm and urgency (she moved quickly, and we felt like she shared our desire to make this happen!). Alonya was incredibly knowledgeable and patient with our questions - always available when we had a moment of panic, and willing to go the extra mile to answer additional questions and interact with the seller's agent. Alonya is super experienced, and was able to contextualize a lot of our questions and concerns with a long-view of the Bay Area housing market landscape. She also knows the east bay like the back of her hand and had great tips for the move in process. I would highly recommend Alonya to any future home buyer -- first time, or seasoned. Thank you, Alonya!!!"

Jessie S.

"Alonya is a top real estate agent in every regard. She is a true local expert in Oakland and the surrounding Alameda County. Alonya takes the time to educate her buyers and sellers, communicates extremely well, and, not to mention, is one of the friendliest and most professional agents you will ever meet. Whether you are a first time home buyer or looking for a listing agent to sell your home you are in great hands with Alonya!"

Nikko S.

"Thank you Alonya!!!! My partner and I are moving in this weekend, thanks to her tireless efforts. We were moving from SF to the east bay, and her insights into different neighborhoods was invaluable. When we fell in love with a house, she made sure we had the most compelling offer possible, going above and beyond to coordinate with the sellers and make sure we were in contention, and beyond, to actually get it! This was my first time buying a home, and she was very patient and informative with all my questions. 100% recommend."

Allison L.

"Alonya is so professional and personable. She explains every step of the home-buying process in terms I understand. She consistently communicates updates and useful information. As a first-time home buyer she empowered me with information to make the best choices. I found comfort in her expertise and warm personality."

Nicole S.

"Alonya is freakin' amazing. She's an expert of the Oakland area, well-networked, and works for her clients! I'd highly recommend working with her in the future in a house hunt. My husband and I were in the market for house in the Oakland area. We first met for over 2 hours just asking her questions about the process. She gave us the low down of what to expect around listing / asking prices in the area, neighborhoods, closing costs & processes, and even expected timing of the process. She was incredibly patient with my constant questions and made herself available! Alonya spent multiple weekend with us looking at houses. The first few times, she gave us a wide range of houses to look at, but eventually was able to adjust to what we liked. She gave us pointers of what to look for in "good craftsmanship" and how to improve a house in value. She was honest and helpful in her opinions! We ended up putting out multiple offers on houses. Each time, Alonya went above and beyond - developed a rapport with the listing agent, coaching us on how to present ourselves, and ensured we were making the most competitive offer possible, without breaking out bank. Throughout the closing process, Alonya was there: available by text and answering all of our questions. She even came to our closing appointment and made it a super memorable event! Everything was super smooth, and Alonya had a huge part in it. Should I have any friends buying in the East Bay, I'd recommend Alonya in a heartbeat. She's amazing!"

Amy L.

"Alonya is awesome!! She helped my partner and I find our first home in the east bay. Home buying is crazy in this market but she was with us every step of the way. She was super communicative and insightful. We're so grateful for Alonya's professionalism, depth of knowledge, and patience."

Josh Q.

"Alonya is the best! First of all, she came out on Christmas to show us the condo we eventually bought. She practically held our hands throughout the entire buying process, and even answered our random and repetitive questions. She is perfect for first-time buyers, and I truly appreciated her super friendly and calm demeanor while I internally panicked during escrow. She's a local to the East Bay, so she really knows her neighborhoods. Thank you, Alonya, for all your help and awesome vibes you brought with our first home buying experience!"

Grace H.

"Alonya is amazing! She told me her goal was to try her hardest to have me and my husband in our first home by the new year. After searching 4 weekends in a row we found our home and closed by the first week of December! Alonya really works for her clients. She is extremely patient and reliable. She listens to exactly what you want and gives the best advice. As first time home buyers we could not be more happy. Will be recommending her to anyone that needs a realtor. The best experience thanks to Alonya!"
