About Jeremy Sherman

Jeremy Sherman, Ph.D., M.P.P. I'm an easy-going social scientist, professor and author, and former non-profit manager and environmental lobbyist. I've taught psychology, sociology, history, English, rhetoric, Advertising and Business Strategy. Currently teaching in an MBA program at California College of the Arts. For 18 years I've been a collaborator on a major origins of life research project with U.C. Berkeley Biological Anthropologist/Neuroscientist, Terrence Deacon. I have written four books and 500 Psychology Today articles. I'm father of three grown children (none at home), partnered, and a jazz bassist/singer performing 3x a week in Berkeley restaurants.

Jeremy Sherman purchased this house in 1996

Why Jeremy Sherman chose Berkeley

Like many I bought this large home when my kids were pre-teens, not foreseeing that they'd fly the coop. I rattled around in its largeness for years, then rented the in-law unit to very satisfied long-term renters.

Recently I realized I could expand the downstairs a little, move into it and rent the top two floors of this house. I just poured $300k into the expansion and renovation which was expertly done.

The house was built in 1924 as part of a development. To save money on planning they would flip blueprints and make a mirror image house, my neighbor's two doors down. Having been in the walls, I can say the work was excellent for the time. An enviable layout and design.

What makes this house unique

After my divorce in 1996, I moved into a converted two room garage and just adored it. To ease the transition for our three children, my ex (now a good friend) and I agreed to keep our large home and take turns staying in it. About a year into the arrangement it suddenly dawned on me to buy my own home. 1830 Sonoma was the first and really only place I visited--love at first sight.

It was the big tree in the front that sold me, the quiet tree lined street, Berkeley's most beautiful library a half-block down, my favorite commercial district three blocks away.

In 1997, the house was in terrible shape, lived in since the 40's by a woman who refused any help with it in the decades before she died at 90. I did a huge remodel then, and though I've lived and travelled broadly (years in Guatemala, Tennessee, Boston, London) couldn't imagine a happier place to live.

The creekside yard is lovely, the neighborhood is safe (I've left car and even house doors unlocked all night by mistake--nothing stolen). The neighbors are dear, parking is effortless (you get a driveway but there's ample street parking too), the weather is perfect, access to UC Berkeley is a breeze.

There are fancier neighborhoods in Berkeley but most are way up in the hills. This neighborhood is to my eyes the sweet spot for convenience and beauty.

The front door is arched. I'm big on faux painting (an earthy homespun look, and though I've painted over the faux interior the outside is subtly fauxed. The front door is round topped. The ceilings are sculpted, there's picture molding on many walls, lots of sweet touches, now all touched up.

Roomy house in nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in Berkeley for a wedding and chose this home because of all the great reviews. They were all accurate, and the pictures are also very representative of the home. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. There is even a large selection of spices. It is in a nice location; not too far from Tilden Park (which is where our wedding took place) and close to UC Berkeley. The owner was very quiet; but easily reachable if needed. I highly recommend this place to others looking for a home to stay in a quiet neighborhood.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly as listed in the description and photos. Everything was new, clean and comfortable! The house was well stocked with clean sheets, towels and paper products, even coffee! The location is convenient to all Bay area attractions and UC Berkeley yet the neighborhood is quiet. Jeremy is close by too if you need anything! We stayed 10 days and by the end it felt like home! You won't be disappointed!

Sparkling new and comfy

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely few days at this property. Everything was immaculately clean and comfortable. We were a family -- parents, two adult children with their significant others, and one grandchild. Plenty of room for everyone. Lovely residential area close enough to shops but also tucked away. Definitely can walk to commercial area as long as the hills of Berkeley don't bother you. The owner was helpful and responsive.

Family wedding

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience in a VRBO listing and it was a home run.We had a fabulous time in this beautifully renovated home. We wanted for nothing. We felt right at home and made ourselves comfortable for five days visiting Berkeley and the surrounding area. It was central to everything Berkeley has to offer. Quiet, charming neighborhood. Jeremy was so nice, pleasant and totally respected our privacy. I would love to come back and stay here. This is a rave review!

Amazing stay, just perfect and awesome host!

  • 5 of 5
We booked the property for a M-F for school. It was just an overall wonderful stay - the place is beautiful, clean, in pristine condition, and very comfortable. Jeremy was also a beyond wonderful host. We never actually met him, but he delivered us some printer paper when we were in a last minute bind to print some stuff for school and even picked up contact lens solution for me when I had forgotten it and he happened to be at the store. I highly recommend and look forward to coming back again in the future.
