This is my 3rd transaction using Kim and her team and I can't recommend her more whole heartedly. The most recent engagement we had required a full remodel to get top dollar for our house. Kim's team managed the process from start to finish within a very tight timeline. In the end, the investment we made netted us about 3x our money. Kim is excellent at understanding the market to determine how to maximize the sale of your home. I will continue to use Kim as future needs arise for a seasoned real estate professional!
Thank you for serving as our agent for the sale of our Mom’s home. We would not hesitate to refer you to another client - your professional skills for integrating all the logistics of the readying the house for sale, legal aspects, and negotiation through closing are evident and valued - all came together in a timely manner. You kept us informed and helped us to get a sense of what’s next. Bill’s crew did a great job in transforming the house for sale. The landscaping was beautiful and the staging was absolutely gorgeous!
Having known Kim for many years, there was no doubt who we would use to list the sale of our home. Kim is an experienced real estate agent who has in-depth knowledge of the local market. We relied on her expertise, and have absolutely no regrets. Her team was efficient in updating, and staging our home helping us get it on the market in a timely manner. When it came time to review offers, her recommendations were invaluable and insightful. You will not find a more professional and caring agent. We would highly recommend Kim for your next home purchase or sale.
Kim and her team not only helped our family find our first home in California in one of the craziest markets in history but fought to find us our dream home!
Having known Kim personally for many years and her reputation and extensive knowledge in the industry, we didn't hesitate putting our trust in her when buying our home. Kim and her team worked tirelessly for us throughout the entire buying process. From being with us through countless showings, helping us with late-night questions, researching different home and neighborhood details, she always reminded us to not give up or settle for anything other than what we wanted. Kim's extensive network of professionals made the entire process move seamlessly and even after closing she has been there for us to make sure we were taken care of in every way. Kim and her team are who you want on your side and there is no one we would recommend more highly! Thank you, Kim!
To start with, Kim is not only one of the best real estate agent we have worked with, but one of the best professionals we have worked with! She is the only person you want representing you in buying a home.
She has extensive knowledge of the area, knowing how long properties would be on the market, if they were overpriced or underpriced to cause a bidding war, and can quickly read up on a property to detect if something is wrong with the property. She worked with us on our list of requirements and nice to haves for the home we wanted, and adjusted as we saw each house and gave feedback. She knows what neighborhoods have issues that a normal buyer wouldn't know about, such as noisy apartments or horrible cross traffic. During walkthroughs she could identify issues with the home, was thorough in checking every part of the property, and for us found an issue the seller corrected that most would have missed.
Her professional network extends to all aspects of home buying! As an example, she had multiple bank recommendations that allowed us to procure a competitive rate. She worked with the bank agent to build confidence with the seller that we were going to be able to pull off the home purchase. It seemed like she knew just about everyone, on every subject.
She is responsive at all times, with phone, text, and email contact as we looked at and bid on homes. And in the crazy market we bought in, this responsiveness was the difference between making it, and missing it, and she was on top of it time after time. Kim is an amazing negotiator, she can read people well, has an established reputation, and knew every seller agent we interacted with.
She is also super fun to work with! In the future, there is only one person we will be turning to for buying or selling a house.
Thank you Kim for everything!
Kim Richman has been a source of inspiration, kindness, strength, integrity, and resourcefulness to me, not just in selling my home in an amazing record time, but in understanding the emotional impact of leaving a home after 42 years. She handled every detail herself along the journey to ensure it was done correctly and that I was secure in the process. She is the consummate professional, and she is also a tower of strength with empathy and ideas. She is a great listener, understood where I needed support, and was there to provide it. Her contacts and team assisted in a renovation that was modern and beautiful, and truly appealing to buyers . Everything was completed on time, was true to the budget we worked on together, and met every specification for the buyer. She is an amazing woman and truly an exceptional real estate agent. I am so fortunate to know her and to have had her as my agent.
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.
