More about Eileen Townsend
Meet Eileen Townsend
Eileen Townsend, a top producing Realtor since 2003, brings to her real estate practice 20 years of prior expertise in marketing, communications and business management – a solid skill set for our ever-changing economy. Eileen’s clients benefit from her personal experience in executive relocation; she has moved seven times with her family, coast to coast and back again, owning real estate in six states, including historic homes, custom construction, condos, townhomes and view properties. Her first-hand experience has helped hundreds of home buyers and sellers achieve their goals – where markets have been “hot,” with scarce inventory and multiple offers, as well as sluggish, with softening prices and excess inventory.
“Whether you’re moving up, moving out, or even reluctantly moving on, whatever your concerns are, I’ve been there,” Eileen says. “It is my personal goal to draw upon my experience to help you anticipate the challenges and make the best of the process of moving. I’m keenly aware that that means both achieving your financial goals AND finding the resources to resettle your family in a new community.”
Eileen has been consistently recognized for client satisfaction and high production. She was named “Rising Star” her first year in the business, then working with a Sotheby’s affiliate in Vermont, where she ranked within the top 10 agents for eight consecutive years and was honored by the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World for top performance with relocation referrals. In 2010, Eileen received the company’s premier performance award, the Daniel Webster Award, honoring high productivity in both the number and value of properties handled. Since joining Coldwell Banker in 2011, Eileen has been certified in the “Previews International” luxury program, offering finesse in handling high-end listings and purchases, Eileen has held Coldwell Banker’s “President’s Elite” status, ranking among the top 2% of CB real estate agents in the world, since 2013.
Prior to working in real estate, Eileen was Director of Marketing and Public Relations for two small colleges: Dominican University of California in San Rafael, and Saint Michael’s College in Vermont. She has prior experience as a newspaper and magazine journalist, and as a writer and manager in corporate and agency public relations, marketing and advertising. She attended the College of William & Mary and holds a B.A. in English Literature and Journalism from the University of Delaware.
Eileen values giving back to the community and supporting the arts, education and business endeavors, with a long resume of leadership roles in the many places she has lived … and is currently seeking how she will express this passion in the Berkeley area.
Eileen grew up in Washington, D.C., and has lived and worked in Newark, DE: Baltimore, MD; Rockford, IL; Marin County, CA; Des Moines, IA, and Burlington, VT, prior to landing here in the Berkeley-Oakland marketplace. In addition to selling real estate, she enjoys yoga, hiking, skiing, travel and reading.
