Steve Bagot

I’m a 3rd generation Oakland Native with over 27 years of real estate industry experience as a licensed California real estate broker and a licensed California Certified Appraiser.  Prior to joining Lawton Associates, I founded one of the East Bay’s most highly regarded residential real estate appraisal practices, Bagot & Associates, headquartered in Oakland.  I have been involved in more than 25,000 real estate transactions, performing detailed appraisals of single-family homes and multi-family apartment buildings.

My nearly three decades practicing in the Oakland+Berkeley area has resulted in detailed “street-by-street” knowledge of real estate trends and valuations in our area.  I believe this unique insight and experience creates a competitive advantage for our clients. I have enjoyed working with a wide range of real estate investors ranging from first time buyers and sellers to savvy residential and commercial investors and developers.

I have a passion for buildings, and feel fortunate to live and work in the East Bay where we are blessed with such a wide array of beautiful structures ranging from stately 19th Century Victorians, to cozy Craftsman homes and “cool” Mid-century modern houses, lofts, and low rise apartment buildings.  Over the past 15 years or so, I have worked with several area developers and real estate partnerships in restoring and remodeling more than 100 important properties in the East Bay.  These projects include numerous apartment-to-condo conversion projects, with complex workflow that included property identification and acquisition, design, permitting, tenant negotiations, Vesting Map approvals, HOA formation, building renovation, property staging and sales strategy.  Whether single family or multi-family, each of these projects presented its’ own challenges from an approvals, design+build, and marketing perspective.  Many lessons have been learned along the way… the most important of which is that each project is unique and nothing is “cookie-cutter” in our market.  Trends and styles are like fashion…. They come and go.  But solid, clean design following a user-centered design approach is timeless.   It is very rewarding working with our developer clients and seeing the shared vision realized with a beautiful property.

I was born and raised in Oakland and graduated of Cal Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo way back in the ‘80s with a B.Sc. in Agri-business.  I continue to live here in the East Bay with my wife Karin, and we are the proud parents of 3 incredible daughters.   In my spare time, I enjoy running in the Oakland-Berkeley Hills and playing competitive tennis.
