I was introduced to RETS/Berkeley when I did not know I needed her. I thought the world I was in was good, until she showed me an opportunity. She was very informative about my options in a low pressure way. I feel that she took the time to listen to my personal career goals and needs and balanced those with the needs of her client.  She guided me through the process and set expectations on how things would proceed. At all times she was available to answer questions, even ones that might have seemed trivial. Overall I was very pleased with Berkeley and RETS and love knowing I have them on my side in the future.
