We were searching for a house to buy in the Saratoga area, and we found Kim through reference. We were very impressed with her professionalism. Kim is super energetic, helped us look through many houses, and is very knowledgeable on what to look out for. After 8 months of searching, we finally landed our dream house. It is a very challenging process giving the current market condition, but we are lucky to have Kim and her team on our side to help us went through it. What's more, after the house is closed, we are still getting help from Kim's team on the projects to be done for the house, as I know she will always be there to help when needed.
We first met Kim when she was the listing agent for the house we purchased. As buyers we were impressed with her professionalism and how she ran the selling process and so when it came time for us to sell, we decided to hire Kim to represent us. Kim was really great to work with, helping us determine what work to do (and what not to do) in order to maximize the appeal and marketability of the property to potential buyers while providing the best return to us. While we have sold and purchased many properties in the past, we were impressed by how much work Kim and her team put into preparing the property for market and ensuring the sale would go well - which it really did! Kim brought the contractors, coordinated their work around the agreed schedule, and made sure it was all executed flawlessly. With her strong knowledge of the Los Gatos market and buyer preferences, Kim encouraged us to update colors and styles to maximize our home’s appeal, even if they were outside of our “comfort zone,” and her judgments were right on! Thank you Kim, for making a complex and sometimes emotionally difficult process go so well, ensuring a great outcome for us and the buyers.
My sincerest thank you to Kim and the entire Richman team for making the sale of my home about as easy as it possibly could be! After living in Los Gatos for over 12 years, I packed up my belongings and handed Kim the key. Kim and team managed every aspect of getting my home on the market - and of course, selling it. This included planning and project managing updates (light construction), cleaning, repairs, watering the plants, and staging. In the end, my house sold without me ever needing to return to the bay area! Throughout the entire process, I felt confident that my home was in good hands. I can't say enough about what a great job Kim did. Oh, and did I mention, the house sold above my asking price!
We became acquainted with Kim Richman through our banker who highly recommended her and said she can perform miracles. And he was right! Kim is a true professional on every level who exceeded our expectations. She and her team worked tirelessly not only with the purchase of our current property but also with the sale of our home. She suggested and recommended staging our home to sell. Once it went on the market we had an offer within two days well above the asking price. Unbelievable! Kim Richman always had the time and patience to listen and to answer our questions or concerns. Kim's cheerful attitude and her tireless energy were unstoppable. We highly recommend the Kim Richman Team.
Kim is the consummate real estate professional. From the moment I engaged her to help my clients in Los Gatos, she took charge and lead the way. Her follow-through, professionalism, knowledge of the area, and arsenal of people to prep the listing was first-class. Thank you Kim and team for all of your hard work in making this a successful sale!
A consummate professional is the best way to describe Kim Richman. She proved to be an expert in every aspect of selling our home. At our first meeting, Kim suggested that we could likely get a lot more for our house if we invested in a number of upgrades. At her suggestion, we utilized the Compass Concierge service to obtain an interest-free loan, allowing us to do more upgrades than we would have been able to afford. The end result....the house went on the market on a Thursday afternoon and within a week we had multiple offers and accepted one well above our list price. Kim helped us through the entire process, making sure we understood what was happening every step of the way. We highly recommend Kim Richman for your real estate needs.
Kim was instrumental in helping us find our dream home in Los Gatos and did a masterful job navigating the entire process from A to Z with us. She has all the right contacts for vendors, contractors, agents, lenders, etc and she can really be a 1-stop shop in this regard. Her attention to detail was impeccable as well, which I appreciate since it makes our life as buyers easier. I highly recommend Kim to anyone!
Hard to find the right words to describe the amazing job Kim does! I have worked with Kim on the sale and purchase of a few homes, she is my go to for anything real estate. Kim is always a pleasure to work with. She is professional, very knowledgeable in all things real estate, fun and always has a resource that you need. She cares about her clients and their needs and finds a way to make everything work. She always goes the extra mile, and was on top of what was going on with the daily changes in regards to COVID-19 as she navigated through a purchase and sale for me in the past 30 days, pretty spectacular! It is always a wonderful experience to work with Kim!
Very professional, knowledgeable, talented and thoughtful, Kim and her team care about your family as much as they care about theirs. While representing us as buyers, Kim invested a significant amount of time to deeply understand our family’s needs and priorities and helped us set the right expectations. She knows every corner of Los Gatos, even the history of properties and past ownership. She has a broad and a long-term view of the real estate market and can draw your attention to the right opportunity even before a property is listed for sale. She managed flawlessly our negotiation with the seller and handled the whole transaction fast, paying attention to every detail and helped us uncover and address all issues in time. You’ll hardly find a more skillful real estate team in the Los Gatos area.
Kim Richman is highly recommended!
