About Soraya

Soraya Golesorkhi

Realtor®

Get to Know Me

Making dreams come true is one of the most magical feelings in real estate, and for Soraya Golesorkhi, her mission is to turn those dreams into reality. Primarily serving Orinda and the surrounding area, Soraya has many years of experience connecting clients to their dream homes–coupled with a lifetime of area expertise in the East Bay area. She is passionate about the area, particularly its safety, cleanliness, and plentiful walking and hiking trails.
 
Born in Lima, Peru, Soraya grew up in Massachusetts and Rhode Island before eventually moving out to California. A longtime resident of the Bay Area, Soraya and her family have lived in the beautiful East Bay for over 38 years. Her real estate career began in 2006 when she obtained her real estate license and began working in new home sales for a small builder. She made the transition to Coldwell Banker in 2007 and is a thriving agent in the East Bay. Prior to becoming a real estate agent, Soraya graduated from Tufts University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Experimental Psychology, with a minor in Human Factors Engineering. In addition to her academic achievements, she has received many industry awards and designations, including the President’s Circle Elite in 2021.
 
For Soraya, one of her favorite aspects of being a Realtor® is helping her clients achieve their real estate goals. Whether they are first-time homebuyers, move-up buyers, or sellers, she prides herself in helping her clients. Soraya deems herself as the fairy godmother of sales, taking her clients’ wish lists and manifesting their desires into their dream homes. Even when it takes a little bit of vision, Soraya guides her clients through every step of the real estate process. In fact, many of Soraya’s clients turn into lifelong friends, even after the sale is over. With such extensive experience in selling new homes, Soraya works diligently to help her clients find their dream homes. While Soraya works with buyers, sellers, and investors from all walks of life, her areas of specialty are working with clients in Orinda, Moraga, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Alamo, and other areas of the East Bay.
 
Along with her work as a Realtor®, Soraya is actively involved in her community through a number of causes. She previously served on the board for STAND! For Families Free of Violence and the board for the Women’s Initiative. When she isn’t turning her clients’ real estate dreams into reality, you can find Soraya spending quality time with her husband and three sons, cooking, traveling, hiking, and volunteering.
