Spearheading the Bay Area Resource team, Dyniece Abril worked as loan officer for 10 years helping the police officers, firefighters and other homebuyers. She then transitioned into the real estate agent side where she quickly realized that many of her past loan clients needed help and updated resources for their home and investment properties. She formed Bay Area Resource three years ago bringing together professionals to assist and educate homeowners, buyers and investors in order to realize their various real estate goals.
Dyniece maintains long lasting relationships with her real estate clients as she views her interaction as continuing rather than as one shot transactions. She constantly works to educate even the savviest investor client with her consistent education and updated research.
