Testimonials

We worked with Kevin in the summer and fall of 2015 to sell our condo and then to purchase a single-family house. We were initially impressed with his professionalism and enthusiasm and decided to work with him after talking to several realtors. He understood our tight timeline and assured us that he could get us into a house in the allotted time, even in the crazy Bay Area housing market. The staging, photography, and videography he organized for our condo were some of the best we saw posted online. He took advantage of multiple private real estate networks to market our condo, and we ended up with two strong pre-emptive offers prior to going to market. We were able to close quickly, and the entire transaction went smoothly. Both for the sell of our condo and the purchase of the house, he organized many appointments associated with a real estate transaction, so we did not have to take time off work (inspections, estimates for repair work, meeting workmen). This made both selling and buying a place convenient rather than a major headache. Kevin was a pleasure to work with, and we always felt like he always operated with our best interest in mind. We have no plans of moving again anytime soon, but we would not hesitate to work with him again. Similarly, we would wholeheartedly recommend him to friends who are looking for a hard-working real estate agent.

Kevin's style was warm and engaging while he was thorough and professional in all our dealings and communications. Kevin was acutely aware of the market conditions and the local area trends for selling our home. He was prompt and informative in his advise about staging the property, scheduling the open house, and negotiating the listing price and accepting the final offer. Kevin grew up on the Peninsula and knows the local real estate, title, and financial professionals personally, as well as the pest, home, and structural inspectors,-- a great advantage! We highly recommend Kevin as an energetic, knowledgeable, real estate professional!

Kevin helped me look at homes for the better part of a year. This was my first home purchase and I had a lot to learn; Kevin was patient with me throughout the whole process. He didn't try to talk me into anything I didn't feel comfortable doing, and he was super focused on getting me into a home that I felt 100% comfortable committing to. Kevin knows all the nuances of the business, has a great way with people, and is always responsive -- even when it's inconvenient for him. He's worked in a few different real-estate related roles before becoming an agent, so he understands the intricacies of inspections, appraisals and lending which turned out to be extremely helpful for me as a buyer. I'd definitely hire Kevin again and I recommend him to all of my friends looking to buy a home.

With Kevin's guidance and professional service, we bought a Peninsula home we adore. At the time, we were in a hot sellers market, but Kevin kept his cool throughout the entire process, which we found to be a great quality. 

Kevin demonstrated excellent skills in the transaction process. He is a good listener and a concise communicator. He helped us design our bidding strategy, which turned out to be extremely precise and thoughtful. This was based on his superb knowledge of market conditions, well-honed negotiation skills, as well as a deep understanding of the sellers and our needs. We felt we got a deal. 

Buying a home is an emotional journey. Kevin acknowledged the emotional factor and professionally guided us to secure a home we love. As three-time Peninsula home buyers, we've had significant experience in the market with different agents. Kevin stands out. Diligent, reliable, proactive, responsive, and mature, he has the skills and qualities we look for. We respect and trust Kevin and highly recommend him to our relatives and friends!

Kevin made the entire buying process as easy and smooth as it possibly could. In the competitive SF market, Kevin was able to help me purchase a home quickly and at a great price. He does a good job at listening to what you are looking for and help ensure you find something that you'll love. Kevin would pick me up Sunday afternoon and come prepared with a list of houses to see based on a MLS report we set up. He has a great knowledge of the area and due to his experience working as an appraiser, he is able to perform a fair assessment on true valuations of houses. He does a good job in pointing out subtle details about each house we saw and objectively highlights both the pros and cons of each place. In addition, he diligently reviews the disclosure packages, inspection reports, etc. to ensure we are clear on exactly what we are bidding on. In one instance, we found a great unit with a great location but due to Kevin's expertise we were able to avoid making an offer on a place that had foundational issues. The inspection report was written in a cryptic manner that did not make it clear there were foundation issues with the property. For the unit I ended up purchasing, Kevin was able to get us into the property before it was even listed on the market. He has a strong network and good soft skills which allowed us to have our pre-emptive offer accepted prior to the unit getting listed on the market. His approach and negotiation skills allowed us to save at least 15% on the purchase price of the home. He is well connected within the real estate industry and thus made this process as smooth as it could be. Overall, Kevin is a great realtor and person. Kevin deserves all the credit for negotiating an incredible price, finding a unit that was exactly what I was looking for, and finding a unit with a great location!

Entering the housing market, my wife and I had our fair share of trepidation and concern. Kevin changed all of that and made buying a house in San Francisco one of the smoothest, easiest things we've ever had to do. Kevin in an absolute pleasure to work with, with incredible response times to emails/texts, and always goes the extra mile for his clients. He is honest, knows the market extremely well, and always has your family's best interest in mind. Stop looking for other agents and go with Kevin. Thank you Kevin!!

We were so lucky to find Kevin. Exasperated with the housing market, getting outbid multiple times on properties we weren't even that excited about, we met Kevin. He encouraged us to look at a property he had found that wasn't even on the market. Kevin explained to us that he had already established a relationship with the current owner who was going to lose the house. Through Kevin's resources, connections and sensitivity to all parties involved, we found a wonderful house we never would have looked twice at. We are so happy and grateful for his vision and expertise.

I can't say enough good things about Kevin. He helped me sell my condo in Belmont over the asking price and very quickly. We then purchased a condominium on the east bay. Before we sold my condo, Kevin suggested several upgrades, painting cabinets, a new vanity in the bathroom and some new light fixtures. These cheap and easy upgrades provided almost the exact return he told me we should expect. The transition was very smooth which was convenient since I was living in the home at the time. There was never a surprise knock at the door and Kevin and I both had full knowledge of all showings and offers. Kevin required that I had a very comprehensive disclosure package to disclose everything I knew to buyers. This was something that wasn't available when I bought the property for myself and I didn't know that this was how it was typically done (Kevin did not represent me during that purchase). I'm confident the buyers that we found were very comfortable due to the inspections we took before hand and the very detailed way we disclosed everything we knew about the property. Needless to say there was no renegotiation during our contract period. I highly recommend Kevin to all my colleagues, family and friends.

I recently worked with Kevin on our purchase of a home in San Carlos. Throughout the process, which included looking at houses in Pacifica, Montara, Half Moon Bay and Belmont, Kevin provided unbelievable service. It was clear early on that his main concern was finding the right house for my family. Having someone like Kevin as a resource was extremely important because in many markets properties move quickly and responsiveness is critical. In addition, Kevin's experience and knowledge of the process helped us package the most attractive offer possible which ultimately led to a contract in a very competitive market. When I have a real estate need in the future I will be working with Kevin again.

Let me start out by saying Kevin is the best! Worked with other realtors in the past, but Kevin was very different from the others. Always professional, easy to work with and more importantly available! During this stressful search Kevin has the best personality to keep you focused, calm and continues to reassure you that the correct house is out there. We were not just a paycheck to him as he was always trying to find us the best home for a great price. Originally starting out as an appraiser combined with his knowledge of the Bay Area allowed us a fighting chance in this challenging market. He always made sure when we placed are bids that we were competitive but not allowing us to over pay for the neighborhood. I recommend Kevin without reservation to help you buy or sell your home.
