About Our Company

MODE assists clients in maximizing the value of their property through creative and economical design principles.

We treat each property as a new and comprehensive design project paying attention to every detail from its curb appeal to its back yard. MODE brings a unique sense of style and creativity, utilizing a mixture of up-cycled and modern furniture in combination with spunky art pieces to create a one-of-a-kind look for each listing.

MODE has over 20 years of experience in the residential real estate industry in the bay area. Our team knows how to tune into buyers while also meeting both an agent’s and a seller’s needs. With MODE, you will be building a true partnership that will help ready any property for the market.
