What People Says?
Response: from the owner6 months ago Thank you so much Upendra for the wonderful endorsement. Working with and helping your beautiful family find the perfect home was special. Truly a pleasure and getting to know you and Sweta was the best part. I'm always here to help with any real estate needs.
It took us a year to do the necessary work in advance of the actual listing and Kathi hung in there with us the whole time. We met with her early on and relied on her advice along the way in terms of what work to do, to what extent and similar concerns. As we made our way through the early days of the Covid-19 restrictions Kathi assured us we’d be able to continue and she was right. A few months later when we were ready to list Kathi was ready to get to work doing the necessary research and recommending a price range. The home sold quickly, at a good price and under good terms so, obviously, we’re very happy with the result.
Additionally, because our family has a longstanding personal relationship with Shriners Hospital for Children - Northern California we were very happy that Kathi supports the hospital by donating a portion of her commission through the Realtors Who Shrine group. I’m not sure how commonly agents donate a portion of their commission to anyone but in this case we’re very glad to be a part of it. I’m happy to recommend Kathi to anyone considering buying or selling a home.
