Bedbury Group

    • =We recently had the pleasure of working with Kathryn and Bob Bedbury for the purchase of our first house. They were both AMAZING to work with, and we give them our highest recommendations. It is safe to say that we would not have been able to purchase our dream home without their substantial help. We would work with them any time again.Below are some particular points where Kat and Bob truly excelled:SuccessFirst and foremost, Kat and Bob made our house hunt a success. We worked with them for a few months and they helped us (a) to find our dream house, and (b) to get it. In Silicon Valleys seller market, this is already an accomplishment by itself. In our case this is particularly noteworthy because the sellers agent made the process quite bumpy. Nevertheless, Kat and Bob managed to navigate through everything flawlessly.Availability, CommitmentKat and Bob were always available for questions on our side, consultation, and of course to drive the process itself. Both of us still get nightmares from imaging their work hours, but they do everything to make things happen, and always put the clients interest first. This is particular important in the Bay Areas fast paced marked where buyers need to act very fast.Pleasure to work withAs first time buyers, we had heard many scary stories from friends and colleagues about their realtor experiences. That was not the case for us with Kat and Bob. We genuinely enjoined working with them, and they made the whole process which can sometimes be quite stressful an enjoyable experience.KnowledgeableWhen we started our house buying process, we didnt have more knowledge than the average first time buyer. Kat and Bob guided us through the process extremely well. At each step we felt we were in control and that we were not rushing into anything thanks to their excellent guidance.HonestLast but not least, they are honest. This again is a really critical quality in a realtor for firsttime buyers. On many issues we had to trust their judgement and advice. For instance, we had set our eyes on another house before, in which we saw great potential and were willing to make an offer on it. After some thorough research, Bob and Kat cautioned us about that house and presented us with some facts and red flags about it that we had not discovered. Rather than going for the easy money and proceed to the next client, they wanted us to be truly happy with our purchase. And they succeeded in that.In summary, we can not recommend Kat and Bob Bedbury highly enough. We would (and have already) recommend them to any friends and family, and would not hesitate to work with them again in the future.Many thanks Kat and Bob! Martin & Jana

    • I highly recommend Kathryn and Bob Bedbury as listing agents for your home.Two years ago when my husband and I decided to sell our home on the Peninsula we selected Bob and Kat as our agents. I had been an agent on the Peninsula since 1988 and worked for a competitive firm at the time we decided to sell. I intuitively understood that I needed someone who was independent and could appraise the situation with a professional eye and recommend the upgrades, staging makeover and targeted marketing that our home required. Our property was a 3000 square foot home on two acres with many of the quirks older homes sometimes acquire with time.Kathryn and Bob did not disappoint. Our home was sold within seven days of being placed on the market. The stager created a makeover worthy of HGTV. Their marketing materials and events were upscale and well received by an affluent Silicon Valley clientele with high expectations. In conclusion, Bob and Kat Bedbury are exceptional agents who achieve exceptional results for their clients.

    • Bob and Kat Bedbury changed our lives. My wife and I were searching for a home on and off over the course of three years. The off periods always followed a heart-breaking loss to a higher bid for a prospective property. It felt all but hopeless for us. We had successfully saved for ten years, but we were being treated like we were poor and should move down market if we were to stand a chance. It was terribly disheartening.We first visited Bob and Kat in their office during the summer of 2017. They rolled out the red carpet, walked us through their process and made us feel confident this would happen for us and that they were on the case. At the time we were not in a place where we could match their enthusiasm as we were in the midst of an off cycle. Timing is everything and they had left an impression on us.In the fall of 2018 we started poking around the market again and lobbed a call into BobKat. They were as welcoming as always, understood the extended silence on our part and filled us with confidence all over again. Bob and Kat are the best and they only work with the best in the industry and you must know about David Breaux at US Bank. He is the only option for you if you are looking for professional, efficient and customer focused help with a loan. My wife had found a place that peaked our interest and we asked the team if they would support our effort to bid for it. Once they were on the case it seemed as though there was magic around every corner. Four weeks later we had the keys to our new home. We know that our story would be entirely different if it were not for team Bedbury. We recommend them to everyone that wants to experience true professionals that will deliver for them.

    • When we started looking to buy our first house we had really no idea what it takes. We met Bob at our first open house where he was the listing agent. We were upfront that the house was out of our budget, yet Bob still went out of his way, walked us thru the house and explained the process in details. It was such a great experience at the time we thought that all the agents would be like that turned out we couldnt be more wrong. Later, we were searching for house for a few months with no luck. We were not able to make commitments or meet our expectations. It was overall quite frustrating experience. Finally, we decided that we need to work with Real Estate agent. Having already met dozen different agents the obvious choice was to call Bob. And that is exactly the moment when everything started to be simple, smooth and even fun. We couldnt had chosen better.Bob and Kat were always there to answer every question also the ones we didnt know we have to ask. They made recommendation for different financing options out of which the banker we chose turned out to be really great. Soon we realized we are working with the entire Team of experts smoothly cooperating towards our common goal. After few weeks we had 2-3 houses under consideration. Bob and Kat went to see these houses and provided very meaningful insight. One of the houses was already longer on the market. We saw some potential in it but without their guidance we wouldnt be able to evaluate it properly. Bob and Kat helped to set the strategy to down bid significantly below listing price. We needed to act quickly to close the deal before the next open house on weekend. Once they got our decision they were able to put together the offer in just a few hours and close the deal the very same day.The entire escrow process for us was just a walk in the park. We went abroad for 10 days, yet the Team was still able to close it within planned 21 days.Bob and Kat made the entire experience so simple and pleasant for us and they always paid attention to every detail.Bob, Kat we cannot express enough how grateful we are for all your help in making our dream come true.Tomasz and Anna

    • It was my great pleasure to work with BobKat during my home purchase experience. I was introduced to them through a mutual friend, and from the very first sit-down meeting I was instantly at ease. BobKat are a great duo and they walked me through the home buying process, setting me up for success to tackle open houses. We identified key features and locations to focus on, as well as budgets to consider between condos vs. single-family homes. With that done, we started tearing into MLS listings to identify possible new homes. When the time came to pounce on a property, BobKat were right there with me, leading the charge. Bob was super on top of keeping me updated on forms/information I needed to provide, especially when we found out the place I was interested in wanted us to provide an offer later that evening!Bob kept me calm and guided me through what was needed, doing most (if not all) of the heavy lifting and all I had to do was agree/disagree to certain items being within the offer. Talk about simple, right? I let them work their magic and lo and behold, my very first offer was accepted with only minor negotiations. The teams BobKat worked with to close were amazing! I was on a super tight deadline and we managed to close within 2.5 weeks of the offer being accepted! It was like clockwork, I was able to move into my new place right before the lease on my old place expired, thanks to BobKat being able to manage the tight timelines and their amazing teams for helping everything get finished on time.Even after closing, theyve continued to look out for me, providing me with recommendations for who to contact for different repair work, suggestions for insurance and other purchases, etc. Im looking forward to working with BobKat again in the future when it comes time to upgrade. Ive had such a thoroughly wonderful experience and wouldnt hesitate for a second to work with them again.K. Tang

    • WOW! A friend recommended BobKat to us, and we could not be more happy that we listened to my wise friend and scheduled a meeting with them before we signed with our old realtor to sell our condo. We have worked with another realtor in the past to buy our previous home, who I never clicked with, but got the job done. I am delighted to report that you can have great customer service, feel truly understood, and get EXPERTISE all in one package if you work with BobKat. Once you are their customer, they are so dedicated, quick responses to emails/phone calls, thorough answers to questions, overall the communication was above and beyond (and my expectations are pretty high given the stakes, emotional and financial). My husband described the experience as premium and I have to agree. I did not know it was even possible for a realtor to go this far above and beyond! Our selling price for our condo was beyond any reasonable expectation, and they have been great on the buying side as well, won the first home we put an offer in on! Call them now, you will be so glad you did!

    • We highly recommend Team Bedbury!!Thank you both for your professionalism and coordination on the sale of our home in Palomar Park!After 11 years in the Bay Area, my husband and I made the decision to return home to the East Coast but didnt know where to start. Palomar Park is a very unique neighborhood in Redwood City and we wanted agents that had knowledge and expertise of this area. We interviewed several agents and picked Team Bedbury for the sale of our home. We felt that Kat and Bob really understood the local housing market and came with excellent recommendations including from many neighbors.Moving is never easy but Team Bedbury had great contacts and resources to help us make our home shine. Beautiful presentation, crafty brochures and inviting open houses really made a difference. The home looked brand new and gathered multiple offers in a very short time for a smooth transaction. We are going to miss the wonderful views and quiet location as we move onto our next adventure.Thank you!Christine and Jeff Ferry

    • We were ambivalent about selling our home of sixteen years and needed someone special to represent us. Someone gentle, and yet persistent. Someone who would undertake our personal cause with caring and love, yet who was a consummate professional as well. We wantedand neededa realtor who knew Palomar Park like the back of her hand because it isnt always the easiest neighborhood to sell inand no one gets Palomar like Kat Bedbury. And so when she and her husband, Bob, came into our lives, I relaxedat least a little. They had a million ideas of what to do and how to do it to get our house ready for sale. We had thought selling would be straightforward, but they showed us how much help our home actually neededit was beautiful, and in no disrepair, but some sprucing up was required. With pinpoint precision the Bedburys identified the areas we most needed to work on, stood by our sides and held our hands as we worked through every last step. They found painters and contractors and gardenersand then helped us manage every detail of the work to be done. They even found us a realtor who would work as unbelievably hard as they do in the state to which we were moving! There was nothing they would not do for usincluding hauling the garbage bins up our hilly driveway after the house went on market and we left for the East coast. Best of all, Kat went from simply being our excellent realtor to becoming my extraordinary friend. I bless the day I found her. The Bedburys made leaving Palomar Park a lot less painful, and that was quite a feat. It was luck that brought us together, but it is not luck that leaves us standing here now, with an over-the-top sterling silver sale behind us and a wonderful friendship still ahead.

    • We have known team Bedbury since 2013. They helped us find and secure our home in Belmont, CA. After four years, we needed to relocate. We did not hesitate to contact them again, this time to lead the selling process of our property. Since we met them, their charisma, true caring spirit, and energy gave us a lot of optimism in this very competitive market. Their professionalism, deep knowledge of the market, and negotiation skills are just some of the many excellent attributes of this team. We have been very fortunate to have them guiding us through this process. They made it so much easier and smoother for us. We couldn't imagine working with anybody else.Myrna N.

    • Letter of Recommendation:Kat and Bob are amazing! As first time home-buyers, we were having a hard time navigating the challenging and competitive Silicon Valley real estate market. We had been looking for a home for 8 months when we finally met Bob and Kat at an open house. Their kindness and energy was infectious and we knew from the first meeting that they would be the perfect people to help us. Within 24 hours, we had not only found the one but had successfully put in an offer and had it accepted! It was quite a whirlwind but now we can truly say we are living in our dream home. Kat and Bob guided us through the process and knew who to call to get all the information we needed to get in front of the seller with a credible and realistic offer. We truly feel that their guidance helped us get a great deal not an easy accomplishment in this area! We are so happy to have found Bob and Kat and cant say enough about their kindness, professionalism and strong community connections. They understand the market and know how to negotiate to help their clients achieve their goals. Best of all: they are nice people and really take the time to get to know their clients. We would love a chance to work with them again and have recommended them to both friends and family. Kat and Bob are as good as it gets!

    • To: Anyone interested in Buying or Selling a HomeIn the latter part of 2014 we began to seriously consider leaving the South Bay where we were living (Campbell/West San Jose) and moving back to the Peninsula area where Rebecca had previously lived (San Mateo). We were intererested in any of the towns from Redwood City (south) to Burlingame (North). In the earliest stages of this process Rebecca was doing some preliminary checking out of homes in San Carlos and happened to see a brochure with Bob and Kats name. We didnt have a realtor yet so (among others) she checked them out. They were so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and confident they could meet our needs we decided to give them a try, to first find a new house for us. We had special requests (e.g. homes to fit several health and other requirements) and they listened and tailored what was available to both our price range and requirements. Throughout 2015 they were our true partnerschecking in with us as much as we liked, listening as we fine-tuned our search, giving timely information that was on point, advice and perspective when thats what we wanted, and making us feel this wasnt just a business transaction, but an advocacy. We could tell they would not rest (!) until we had the right home. Our requirements meant extra care had to be put into culling the type of home we wanted and needed from the (relatively small) inventory available in our designated geographic preference. By years end we found the right house and beat out several other bids for the beautiful home we now call home in Belmont. We were very excited! And when you buy a home with the Bedburys you also get lots of TLC and goodies after the sale that make you feel very welcome in your new place and neighborhood. I wont spoil the surprise (s), but we had never seen any other realtors do what they did after the sale, and weve bought and sold many homes over our 30 plus years living in the Bay area. But the story doesnt end there. After the first El Nino rains in late 2015 (that ended our 4 year drought) some serious deficiencies that had not shown up in any inspection or disclosures appeared (so neither inspectors or Bob and Kat could not have been aware at the time we bought). Bob and Kat again became our partners in helping rectify the situation. This went beyond the normal call, but thats what they do. Because we were so happy with how they had represented us and helped find the lovely home were in now, we also asked them to help sell our old home. They put on a killer open house in the South Bay and in one weekend found buyers for our home and got us well over our asking price. They had again rewarded our faith and trust in their abilities by also helping us close escrow ahead of schedule and see that all the financial details were covered.We highly recommend Bob and Kat Bedbury as realtors who will get the job of buying and/or selling your house accomplished and in all the ways necessary to meet your expectations and needs. And theyll do it in a way that makes your interactions focused and caring. They each provide their own areas of expertise after years of experience. Together, they are quite formidablethe kind of combined strength we think any prospective client would want on their side when tackling the notable challenges of the Bay Area housing market.

    • When Team Bedbury first came to meet with us in our condo that we were trying to sell, I was instantly impressed with their preparation. Bob handed us a hard cover book, that had analysis on comps, information on recent sales of comparable properties, charts that showed relevant metrics, etc. All of this before ever stepping foot in our home and before the first discussion about them representing us.Bob and Kat are very detail oriented and compliment each others skills, making them a fantastic team. They always answered every question we had for them, no matter how small the question may be. And believe me, I may have had a few dumb questions. They always made time for us and kept us updated, every step of the way. Bob, Kat & Ali always went above & beyond.Team Bedbury always prioritized our schedule and made things as easy as possible for us. They have an excellent team of contractors who did a great job painting, cleaning and staging our place. We loved the colors so much, that were using it for our next place.Above all, Bob, Kat & Ali are wonderful people. They love what they do and it shows. They helped sell our condo and buy our single family home. We enjoyed working with them and would highly recommend them to buy or sell your home.Toney & Danielle R

    • As a retired couple who had lived in our beloved Palomar Park home for 28 years, when it came time to sell our home, we found ourselves in a difficult situation. We had been out of the housing market for so long, that all the rules had changed. In addition, due to recent illnesses for both of us, our energy was low how would we tackle all the updating and some remodel work that needed to be done on the house at a time when the local real estate market was hot and good contractors hard to find? We were way out of our depth, and quite nervous about selling our home.We first met Bob and Kat at one of their wonderful Open Houses in the neighborhood, and were so impressed with the spotless and impeccable home and the friendly, open atmosphere they presented. When we sat down with them, we found them congenial, plain-spoken and clear -- and they came with wonderful local references who we knew well and trusted. We liked them initially, and then as we came to know them better, we found that we could rely on their high standards of integrity, kindness and honesty. In our experience, they treated everyone involved with courtesy, professionalism and integrity.Kat and Bob helped us with every aspect of preparing our home for sale. They were patient with explanations, very helpful with excellent resources painters, gardeners, stagers, contractors who could showcase our home with beautiful and impressive results at reasonable cost and timeframe. They anticipated and prevented problems, followed up on innumerable details, and assisted with contractor communication as needed. Their extensive experience in the local market gives them an eagle eye as to decisions that affect what buyers really want in a home down to details on lighting and appliances that make the final result so very appealing. They helped us decide on a reliable buyer with an offer that far exceeded what we expected, and needless to say, we were thrilled!Both Bob and Kat went way beyond expectations in so many ways, saving us money and time in the process. This included resolving issues to avoid additional payment when a subcontractor s work had to be redone, using their influence to expedite a slow lender, and caring for our home and preventing damage during El Ninos historic downpours after we had moved out. Their communication was superb throughout we heard from them at every detailed point until issues were resolved -- and always caring, positive, clear and friendly. We came to be very fond of both Bob and Kat, as well as feeling deep respect for their skills, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time together. Needless to say, we recommend them very highly!Odell and Virginia O.Redwood City, CA

    • We met Bob and Kat over five years ago at an open house they were showing, just as we were starting to look for our first home. The condo had the smell of fresh baked cookies with music playing in the background and Kat offered to help us with any questions. It was unlike any open house we had ever attended. The condo wasn't a fit for us, but the open house left quite an impression on us. Later we decided to contact Bob and Kat to work with us to find our first home. They knew our budget and that we wanted something to put our stamp on. In just a few weeks a house in Redwood City came back on the market that was a perfect match. We got an exclusive showing before it was even relisted and put an offer in right away. Fast forward five years... We fixed up that house tremendously, had two beautiful children and are ready for our next adventure. Throughout those five years, we kept in touch with Bob and Kat. As we were fixing the house, we asked for their input on some of things we could do to update the house and they stopped by for a visit. They congratulated us on our marriage and the birth of our two children and when we decided to move closer to family in Southern California, we called Bob and Kat to share the news. Together they really helped us put the finishing touches on our house, prepping it to sell for max market value. They helped us work with a great landscaper, painter, and stager. Then Bob and Kat really delivered with an amazing open house with a band and gelato to boot! It was a huge hit! Their marketing materials (handouts and website) were perfect and made the house really shine. We accepted an offer two weeks after listing and have now happily settled into our new home in SoCal. During the closing process, Bob and Kat would keep us updated and let us know that everything is on schedule. We never felt like just a business transaction to Bob and Kat. They genuinely care and work their hardest to make sure that at the end of the day, you get what you want and are happy. We are so grateful that our paths crossed that fall day. Thanks so much for helping our dreams come true.Sincerely,Eric and Shizuka K.

    • Deciding to sell my family home was a big decision. There were sentimental and monetary issues as well as market timing. My home was leased for many years so I new it would require a "refresh" before marketing. In selecting a realtor I wanted active agents but mostly I wanted to find someone with high standards of honesty and integrity. After going to several open homes I kept coming across the Bedburys open houses that seemed so special and after several discussions with them I decided they should be the ones! Right from the start Kat put a schedule together of all that had to be done prior to the first open house. She was tough and kept things moving constantly reminding me that we shouldn't miss our target date. With her inspiration we were able to complete a mini remodel within our timeframe and the house just looked so great. I don't think I could have gotten this accomplished without her motivation!With the house staged and after a few open houses we were able to select the right buyer that could work with us on a 1031 exchange. It was perfect, an amazing sales price, and perfect buyer. Everything went so smooth with the sale.Within a short time frame after close of escrow I turned again to Bob and Kat to help me with the purchase of a replacement property in my exchange. Again with their patience and expertise we were able to close in time on a great property not too far away. With their long tenure and years of working with so many professionals they were able to provide contacts with the highest quality services for loans and in this case a 1031 exchange specialist. My purchase went just as smooth as the prior sale even though I was nervous about an exchange.In thinking about my decision to go with Team Bedbury it was taking a chance because I did not know them that well at the time but they were as I hoped for so honest and had the highest standards and that they made a commitment to me and never faltered. I can say now that we are close friends. I am so glad I chose "Team Bedbury" because they are just that, all the years of their knowledge and time tested relationships of so many professionals that you get the very best of each of them in one great team. Thank you Bob and Kat and Team Bedbury!Terry I

    • Letter of recommendation- We had a realtor before Bob and Kat Bedbury. We spent every weekend summer 2016 going to open houses, nearly 100 of them. After making over a dozen offers without success, we felt there was very little hope wed ever buy a home on the SF peninsula. At times, even when our offers were among the top contenders, the decisions were not made in our favor. The whole process was grueling and disappointing.Enter Bob and Kat Bedbury. We had an initial meeting with them at their office, where they first impressed us with their experience, then their description of how they will present an offer when representing the buyer: they make the offer in person and they refuse to give up. We thought, okay, we will give them a try. They also told us that most of their recent buyers buy a home with them on their first offer. We thought, that is not possible! Soon after this meeting, Kat referred us to their top lender from Wells Fargo and we began the process of submitting necessary paperwork for pre-approval.Two weeks later, we found our dream house at an open house. Turns out, the sellers agent knew the Bedbury team very well and gave Kat a call while we were there. We thought, wow, weve never received this kind of attention before. Within an hour, the wheels went into motion. Within 24 hours, we submitted our offer. In our conversations discussing details of the offer, it was clear Bob and Kat had our best interest in mind. They did not push us to go up as much as possible, they did not even encourage us to remove all the contingencies. This was unbelievable to us as we thought wed need to be far more aggressive to win the deal. The next morning, Bob and Kat called with the good news. We were totally stunned and floored. Just like they said, we won the deal on our first offer with them. There was no doubt that we got the house because of Kat and Bobs network, knowledge of the market and reputation. We finally understood why they are top realtors in the area.Our amazement did not stop there. Bob and Kat bring to the table a whole team of experts. The lender they recommended then brought with her a whole team of experts as well. Once the offer was accepted, the whole loan process was a breeze. We couldnt believe it. Weve go through the process of obtaining loans in the past and had distressful memories of the 30 days of escrow, where getting the lender to perform on time was always a nail biter. Not this time. We had the creme de la creme team. We could not recommend the Bedbury team more highly. Jason and Helen H.

    • Trying to find your way into home ownership in the Bay Area is daunting at best! After two years of searching and chatting with many agents along the way, we met Bob and Kat at one of their open houses. The property was a major handyman special. The place was a frenzy of activity with new families hoping to enter the market; developers rubbing their hands together anticipating the guaranteed return on investment; and Tech geeks looking for a convenient place to commute from. The competition was crazy. We had a great conversation about the current market and how exhausting it can be for new buyers. They were both so charming and not hitting us with a hard sell. Both my husband and I appreciated their relaxed style and decided to keep their contact information for future reference. A few months later we decided to contact Team Bedbury and talk business. With charm and a strong business sense, we knew we had chosen the perfect team to represent us.With genuine care and guidance, Bob and Kat lead us through two offers. Even though they warned us that our top offer probably wouldnt be enough, they supported us in our decision to move forward. Of course they were right. Both properties went 30% over asking. Some folks just need to experience the loss of the chase before they truly believe how crazy this market is. We were those folks.Lucky for us, another property came onto the market that filled most of our checklist. With an awesomely smart strategy we closed a deal on a fabulous Redwood City home. It was a good thing we were ready to listen to Bob and Kats advise. They even stopped us from going all-in and saved us some money. For them it wasnt about getting rich off our deal, it was about making sure we were happy with the our purchase. Could not have asked for anything more. They will get our referrals and our business in the future.Thanks Bob and Kat,Dawn and Bil

    • Buying a house for the first time is scary and stressful. Buying a house in the Bay Area, is down right horrifying! When we started this journey we had no idea what we were doing. We wanted a single family home or a townhouse, and in a great neighborhood with in our budget. Bob and Kat were recommended to us by our parents. At first we were skeptical, because we were already talking with a friend and had been looking; but we soon found out how good of a team and realtors Bob and Kat were. We sat down with Bob and Kat, they gave us a ton of information on our budget, and what we would be able to purchase. After their fantastic presentation to us, we left their office feeling confident, and full of hope that purchasing our home would now go from a dream to a reality. Within a week we had received several emails from Bob and Kat for our first open houses. Since then Bob and Kat were in constant communication with us, all the way up until the final closing date or our now home. With their help, guidance, and good old fashion hard work, we were able to find our prefect townhouse. Even better it was in a wonderful neighborhood, and within our budget. Bob and Kat were amazing and with us every step of the way! They were honest and knowledgable, which made us feel confident that we were going in the right direction. Not only did Bob and Kat help us find our amazing home, but they became our friends. We will never forget the amazing hard work they did for us, and bringing our dream of homeownership to a reality. If you are looking for the dream team of realtors, look no further then Bob and Kat!Chris and Jennie Larsen

    • We met Bob & Kat while already represented by a buyer's real estate agent that we were increasingly displeased with and while checking out a house B&K were selling. Our previous agent, never once showed up to tour a house with us or on our behalf. Our first experience with a realtor when we bought our first home was a horrible experience as well. In fact, combined with some other personal issues, it really got to be too much and we withdrew from searching for a home for nearly a year.We ended up passing on the house that Bob & Kat were selling but hired them as our agent instead. They in fact did help us narrow our house desires, and more importantly, convinced us not to bid on certain houses when our emotions ran rampant. They were always available night and day when we reached out, helped identify any house we would like, ran searches for us, previewed houses for us, were available to visit houses at 7:00 AM, wrote up multiple offers. Advised us on how to handle the multiple bid process. We also ended up hiring their entire team- lender, title company, etc. All of them worked really well together. In general, they got us the house we wanted at the price we were willing to pay for it. We were very happy with it. Not everything is going to be perfect, and issues did come up, but they were pretty close to perfect. The best part though was their level of care. We got birthday wishes, house anniversary cards, calls to check in on us, invites out, and in general, a team that really cares about you as a person, not just as a client.That says a lot to us!

    • Dear team Bedbury,Hope you are all doing fine. We just got back from vacation. We really wanted to come over and meet you guys (and have some gelato :)) today, but unfortunately something else came up.We know this is long due, but please find our words of recommendation below.We hope you like it and would like to thank you again for your great service."We got introduced to Team Bedbury through a family friend of ours. They are a great team and thanks to them, we were able to find our dream home. Our first meeting was face to face where we discussed everything we were looking for in a house. Kat, Bob and Tracy noted down every single detail with a lot of care and also very patiently explained the home buying process.We were very impressed with how quickly they understood our requirements, and this reflected from the different open-houses they suggested us to look at. They have a good feel on the pulse of the market in the Bay area, and are very knowledgeable of market trends, neighborhoods, legal issues and other important pieces in the home buying process. Once we expressed an interest in a house, they were quick to react and come over to see the listing with us and point out the positives, negatives, upsides, downsides of buying that property.What stands out with this team is their aggression, which is very critical to help you buy your home in this market. The moment we decided that we wanted to place an offer, the team worked really hard and and helped us place a really good offer. We were offered an array of very competent loan agents and were given the option to choose the one we were comfortable with.The team has always given us the time and attention when we needed it. We were able to reach them at anytime via email, phone or text. We are extremely happy with the services that Team Bedbury offered us and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy/sell their property."--Hiran & Arvind

    • Bob and Kat BedburyMy husband and I met Bob on a whim when we called him to see if he could show us a property that he was representing. We had been looking for an agent to represent us, but after looking for a few months we had not found one that seemed like proper fit. However, when we met Bob he was welcoming, honest, and very informed about the property and the general area. We decided to meet with both Bob and Kat in a more formal setting and see what Team Bedbury could offer our house search. The first meeting lasted an hour, but after the first ten minutes I knew they were the perfect agents for us. They seemed genuinely interested in helping us find a home that suited us and not just a home. Our budget was not large for the area, but Bob and I hit the ground running on the first week. With his knowledge I quickly became used to the price points of homes in the area and really got a feel for the market. I wanted to see a lot of houses to really figure out what we wanted at this stage in our life, and Bob was on board with weekly or biweekly meetings so that I could accomplish this goal. He never rushed or pushed me and always lent an experienced ear when I mused about potential resale of a specific home we were viewing. One Friday night, three weeks after our search had started with Bob and Kat, a Top Agent Network email was sent to me with an off-market opportunity, and I knew we had to jump on it. We asked to view the home immediately, and, due to Bobs persistence with the sellers agent, were the first people to view the home. We saw it twice that weekend, and by Wednesday, just five days later, were under contract. The house we now own far exceeds our expectations of what we were hoping to purchase, and it is all because of the work of Team Bedbury. I now know that in a real estate market like this one, it is imperative to have an excellent team in place to even stand a chance at purchasing a home, and Bob and Kat are beyond excellent. I recommend Bob and Kat to every I speak with about real estate, because I know that if you have put in the hard work to save up for a down payment in this area, then you deserve the best real estate agents on your side.

    • We met Bob and Kat just about four years ago, my husband and I had just relocated to the area. We both grew up in Texas and then moved to Singapore after getting married, then a new position for my husband landed us here, in the Bay area. Our plan all along was to move back to the United States, buy a house and start a family. What we didnt realize is how crazy the housing market was going to be.We set up meetings with recommended realtors in the area to find a realtor for us. While we were interviewing other potential realtors, we visited open houses and on one such visit, we stumbled upon Bob and Kat. We were instantly greeted by Bob who was standing outside and he said Welcome Home!. I immediately felt welcome and we walked through the door and were greeted by Kat, she was so bubbly and nice and offered us warm, home-made cookies and information on the home. We were brand new to this process and she asked us if we had the disclosures on the house (we didnt even know what that meant at this point). I think she picked up on this and asked us about our search and learned that we did not have a realtor yet, she gave us their card and marketing materials and we were on our way. We loved that house, but it was not the one for us in the end. What I loved more was Bob and Kat, there was something so genuine and honest about them and that was so refreshing.We interviewed Bob and Kat and the deal was done, they didnt even begin to compare to other realtors that we spoke too, they go above and beyond in a market where that is not required anymore. They always make the houses look impeccable and add a little something extra, gelato, pizza, etc. Ive walked into open houses where the agent just sits on the couch and doesnt even greet prospective buyers, because lets be honest, the house is going to sell. I appreciate that Bob and Kat still give 110% even though they do not have to.We do not own a house (Yet!) and that is our fault, we are a couple who is very picky and who do not take decisions lightly and require time and research to make a decision. Now try to buy a house in this crazy market where offers come in a week later and youre competing with so many others for the same house. Bob and Kat urged us to learn the neighborhoods so we could hone in on our search, they also always presented us with the facts about the market and trends and kept telling us to buy and finding really great homes for us. They told us it was only going to keep going up in price based on the current trends and if we would buy, we could build some very strong equity quickly. They were right, as we learned the market and where we wanted to buy, it was too late. Within two years, we were priced out of the areas that we wanted to live. If we had listened to Bob and Kat early on in the process, we would have a home in a neighborhood we were happy and would have made some serious equity in the process. We did make offers on homes, we were usually very last minute and over asking, but not always as aggressive as Bob and Kat would have suggested. What I appreciated was that they were always available and even at 10PM at night, would work tirelessly to get an offer in for us. They would also do everything in the power to make it an offer that would stand out, we would write a letter and they would present in person with a present if needed. We came very close on several homes, but always lost to all cash offers with zero contingencies.We did end up winning a home during this process and we used Bob and Kats inspector and as he inspected the home, he saw a problem with the foundation that he had never seen. Newspaper and cement had been used to fill in holes in the cinder blocks and there was no way to assess the structural integrity of the foundation. We did not feel good about this and The Bedburys agreed, Kat said she had never come across this and helped us back out of the contract. I already knew they were the ones for us, but this sealed the deal. This is money lost for them and that did not matter, they truly want their clients to find a home and be happy.Bob and Kat are still in our lives and still send us updates on the market and we still hope to buy a home with them. Bob and Kat came to the hospital when my daughter was born and it meant so much to us, they are truly genuinely wonderful people who care about their clients happiness. You wont find a harder working pair or realtor out there and hopefully you learn from our mistakes and get your foot in the door before its too late.- Clay and Faith Collins

    • I first met Bob and Kat years ago when they were first getting their online presence set up, and I was working in computer repair. They're awesome, so I worked with them as long as I could until I started a new job.Fast forward a few years where I find myself at an open house for this amazing home nearby. I wasn't looking to buy a house, but this one was calling my name and I felt the need to answer. The timing seemed right financially, but I knew that buying a house in this area is its own challenge and didn't want to get my hopes up. I sent a text to Kat just before walking in the door and asked if we could talk soon.I fell in love with the house, and Kat and Bob were there every step of the way to make sure that I got it. I never felt rushed or pressured, and I felt that I had the support I needed at all times. This was uncharted territory for me, as I'd been a homeowner before, but I hadn't really gone through the home buying process. Luckily, Bob and Kat were there to walk me through the whole process, and help me contextualize and understand each step of the way.I can't recommend them enough; they are both wonderful people who are very responsive and always eager to help. I've heard the process of buying a home can get stressful, so I was pleasantly surprised at how easy Bob and Kat made it all seem!Thanks,Allie T.

    • Dear Homebuyer:I am writing this letter in recommendation of the Bedbury Team. Kat, Bob, and their assistant came to our rescue in a highly competitive market. We would not have been able to purchase our dream home without them.After losing out on our bids for two other homes, I realized Silicon Valley was not the kind of place you could take home buying lightly. We needed a team that was not only going to be pleasant to work with and look out for our best interests, but also one that knew this area inside and out, and could create strategies to allow us to achieve our goal.I met Team Bedbury at an open house. We had visited more open houses than I can remember and their professionalism stood out. The house was staged perfectly and all three of the team members were on hand to greet visitors and showcase their property in its best light. When I called Kat a couple weeks later and shared with her our home search saga, she put me at ease. Kat promised me she would find us the right house. I was so desperate to find a home and move my family out of our cramped two-bedroom apartment, I was ready to purchase anything. Fortunately, Kat treated me like a friend and discouraged me from moving forward on any properties that I didnt loved. When we found the house of my dreams, I didnt think we had a chance, not even with Team Bedbury on our side. The house was in the most desirable section of San Carlos, on one of the best streets, in ideal condition with gorgeous upgrades throughout, and was in that sweet spot price range that attracted many other interested parties. Team Bedbury made plans to go to battle for our house. The befriended the sellers realtor, they helped me craft a letter to the homeowners, they arranged to have our offer (among 6 other offers) presented last to give us an advantage, and perhaps most brilliant of all, they suggested I accompany them with my two young sons to present our offer to the buyer. After some serious back and forth, nail-biting negotiations, Team Bedbury called us with the news We Got The House!!!We could not have been more grateful. My husband and I have met many people in the bay area who gave up on home ownership due to this highly competitive market. We have met many others who spent an entire year getting outbid before they secured a property. Team Bedbury put us in escrow with our dream home within 3 weeks.Once in escrow they oversaw every detail. Bob kept our lender on task, Kat met us for all of our appointments, their assistant volunteered to watch our two active boys every time we visited the house or sat down to sign paperwork, and the entire team made suggestions and held our hand throughout the process. We felt like we were working with the best kind of family. My husband and I highly recommend Team Bedbury to anyone looking to purchase a home in Silicon Valley.Sincerely, Holly & Chris Y & Family San Carlos

    • Sue met Kat at an open house in the neighborhood, and was impressed with her energy and quick attention to Sue's questions about what to do with our house in San Carlos. We were unsure whether to sell or rent our house, and Bob and Kat showed us the strengths and weaknesses of our options. Whatever resources we needed to prepare our house for sale and to move, they gave us recommendations for great people to take care of all our needs. When we were hesitant to proceed, Kat was always patient, and she alerted us to sell when the market was hot. Within a few days, we had an all-cash offer with no contingencies and at more than our asking price. Because of the Bedburys' great knowledge, advice, and attention to detail, our house sold for much more than we would have thought was possible. Thank you Bob and Kat for a great selling experience, and for being honest and true professionals.Thank you Team Bedbury!Sue and Don

    • We stopped by at Bob and Kat's open house one day when we saw a cupcake van parked outside of a house. I had never seen a cupcake van at an open house. Free cupcake! And a free ice cream gift card for leaving our email address!Fast forward, we bought the second house they showed us. Most people look for months and have numerous offers rejected in this competitive housing market. We were very lucky that it took us just two hours, but it was not just luck. Kat's intuition on knowing what we were looking for helped us find the right house, and her attention to detail helped us put together a competitive offer without overstretching our budget. Bob's ability to persuade won us the house, and his attentiveness made us feel at ease when we had a million questions on verbose legal documents. Before we made our first house purchase I always thought real estate agents' job was simply to find their clients houses that match their requirements. Now I know they do much more, from working with a loan officer to negotiating with the listing agent, to going over home inspection documents to advising on the offer letter. You not only need a team that is organized, but that also has extra panache that can win the bid, and that will be there to guide you through every step of the way. We felt that Bob and Kat struck the right balance of being realistic yet optimistic, assertive but not aggressive, attentive but not pestering, and with a sense of humor in case things didn't go exactly our way.We were glad that we stumbled upon their open house that day. It was the most expensive free cupcake we've ever bought, but it was all worth it.Yuka & Marcos P.

    • It all began in early 2014 when I wandered into an open house hosted by Bob & Kat Bedbury, soon to be known to us as BobKat, the leaders of Team Bedbury. Bob welcomed me and provided insight into the home they had for sale. As it turned out, it was not the home for us but was the start of quite an adventure. I mentioned to Bob that I was looking to purchase a larger home in the San Carlos/Redwood City area to house a merging Brady Bunch family and that I had a smaller home to sell beforehand. Bob introduced me to Kat and the rest, as they say, is history. The initial synergy just seemed right. Kat followed me to my existing home and gave me insight on what would be advisable in the way of improvements in order to put the home on the market and garner the highest price possible. She also aligned herself with my particular wants and needs in our new home, and began a search. In addition, she introduced us to their mortgage lender partner (he was amazing and always available) who would prove to be a very valuable member of Team Bedbury and our ultimate success. In the midst of our search we found a couple of homes that could have worked, put an offer on one of them, which fortunately did not work out because soon thereafter we found our ultimate dream home. Mind you that we still had work to do to place our current home on the market but we had fallen in love with our new home. Team Bedbury assured us that it could all be done and they would help us find the way to do it. We placed an offer on our dream home and came up short. Saddened, we continued our search but kept comparing everything to our ultimate love. Then one day Bob informed us that the winning offer on our dream home had fallen through. Bob suggested we follow through with our offer and I said, We tried that and we cant compete. Bobs response was Compete with whom? As it turned out he was right, the home was passing through what I later termed no-mans land where it was no longer sold and about to be placed back on the market. Quick to respond, we submitted our offer and to our amazement, it was accepted almost as quickly. True to their motto, Your Dreams, Non-Negotiable, Team Bedbury made our dream come true.Then reality set in, we needed to pay for this dream. True to her word, Kat sprang into action and within a day had contractors bidding on the work at our soon-to-be former home. Given a tight budget, Kat simply made magic happen within two weeks of us walking out the door for the final time. We were on the market, with all the bells and whistles that Team Bedbury offers squarely in place and in record time. One open house weekend resulted in multiple offers in hand four days later. Team Bedbury not only recouped our investment in our former home, they exceeded our wildest expectations on the ultimate sales price. All in record time to make our dream home our reality. We cant thank Team Bedbury enough for their efforts on our behalf. They are not only professional but also personable and we now count them among our friends. Throughout the process Team Bedbury and their extended team of industry partners were ever at the ready to receive our phone calls, respond to our texts and e-mails and generally provide advice and counsel where needed and constant reassurance. We love the one-stop shopping aspect of working with Team Bedbury. As busy professionals, we could never have met our professional let alone our personal goals with just an ordinary real estate agent. Kat has gone above and beyond volunteering her critical eye and valuable insight into improvements we are subsequently making to our new castle. We recommend Team Bedbury to anyone considering buying or selling a home or both. Ginger and Jake Lucier

    • It is my pleasure to recommend the Bedbury Team as Great Bay Area Realtors. I moved from the East Coast for work last April and was unfamiliar with the Bay Area, nor did I have much time to search for places to live, as my main focus was, and still is, my work. I was extremely lucky that some friends new about the Bedbury Team, and as soon as we met I realized that they clearly understood what I wanted and that I did not need to interview any other realtors. It was a really tough time for buyers, but Kat knew every single available property, and Bob was great with numbers; they complemented each other perfectly. They patiently showed me many houses, and when I finally settled on one, their knowledge of the market, organizational skills, preparedness, and most importantly, negotiation skills got me the property. I am and will always be very grateful to them for that. The most amazing part was that even after the deal was done, they continued helping me making that place my own. Certainly, they made the experience of buying a home a lot less stressful than it could have been considering the housing market in the Bay Area. Lilian Radesca

    • If youre looking to buy a home, start with Team Bedbury. We were so impressed with the attention, advice and support Bob and Kat gave us throughout the whole process. Their guidance was absolutely vital. We kicked off our home search pretty nonchalantly, without the support of a realtor. We saw open houses in what we considered to be our price range and frequently checked out Redfin, but never had much luck finding a home that spoke to us. Eventually, after too many open houses to count, my father suggested we work with Bob and Kat although he hadnt leveraged them as realtors himself, he knew they were top notch. We agreed to meet with Team Bedbury, and before we even left our introductory meeting we knew they were a perfect fit for us they know their stuff, and are so charming to top it off. They make you feel like old friends, even when you first meet. Team Bedbury immediately started sending us options we hadnt yet seen, and it didnt take long for us to find a house we wanted to put in an offer for. And although our first offer wasnt a winner (no fault here other than a crazy market!), we quickly moved on to the next one with some cheerful encouragement from Bob and Kat losing out on an offer is never fun, but Bob and Kat knew just how to get us back on our feet and keep us in the game. And then it happened on only our second offer, we won! Weve now been in our new home for a month and are in love with it all. We have Bob and Kat to thank for such a speedy home search, and for knowing exactly what we needed to do to get our dream first home. We absolutely recommend Team Bedbury, and know that well definitely use them again.

    • Dreams Do Come TrueThere are many fine real estate professionals in the Bay Area, but Bob and Kathryn Bedbury are truly exceptional. Two years ago my husband and I met them at an open house, and while the particular home they were showing was not for us, they took notice of who we were, and what we were looking for, which was a private retreat in a quiet setting, surrounded by views and native plants, only minutes from our work a fantasy from our perspective! Kat stayed in touch and true to form, kept reminding us that our dreams truly were non-negotiable. We were faced with a somewhat daunting task. After all, we were buyers in a sellers market, where multiple cash offers, the new norm, would surely trump our sincere, but more realistic offer. But Bob and Kat thrive on challenge. They showed us home after home, noted our reactions, and listened to us. All the while they refined their understanding of who we are, and exactly what we were hoping for. Meanwhile, they put us in touch with their financial team, and helped us get our paperwork in order, so we were prepared to submit an eventual offer. Then one day we all realized wed found the one, and Team Bedbury moved into high gear.In the blur of the next few days we had been preapproved for a loan, prepared an offer, and written a letter to the owners, hoping to convince them that we were the perfect caretakers of their familys home. In the end, thanks to Team Bedburys professionalism, experience, wisdom and strategic support, we won the home over two very competitive bids including that proverbial all cash offer. With Bob and Kat, weve come to believe that anything is possible with the right team in our corner. And as every good story should end, we are happy to call the Bedburys our friends and our neighbors in this new phase of our lives in the home of our dreams.John & Christine T.

    • We found Bob and Kat rather accidentally through one of their neighbors. Unknowingly we had been driving through their neighborhood in search of a property. We noticed a woman on the street and we stopped to discuss the property with her. She almost immediately suggested that we contact Kat & Bob, because they had so much combined knowledge of the area.At that time, we had already viewed many open houses on our own, and had even met a few agents along the way that we were considering for our own. That is, until we met the Bedburys. Kats neighbor gave us her telephone number and we called her immediately. Kat returned our phone call very quickly. Immediately we were surprised and impressed by Kats knowledge of the area and also of the real estate market in our area. She didnt hold back her knowledge or even suggest that we sign any type of contract with her. Instead she just jumped in and helped out.We were blown away by how warm, friendly, and open she was with us. We felt an instant comfort level with her and we hadnt even met her in person. We felt so comfortable that we requested an inperson appointment to meet her and her husband Bob. It was at that meeting that our journey really began.We left our initial meeting feeling quite confident that we had found a good realtor team. In fact, we were so confident with Bob and Kat that we went to see an open house that afternoon, decided we loved it, and promptly emailed Bob and Kat that we were ready to make our first offer. It was fairly clear that the house was extremely popular and was going to go for a price significantly over our budget; however Bob and Kat were supportive and encouraging and did not even try to talk us out of making an offer that we felt comfortable making.Since this was our first home purchase Bob and Kat suggested we make an offer and they would lead us through the process even though this particular house, with its popularity, was going above listing and beyond our reach. They loaded us up with information and walked us step by step through the contracts. They shared their strategies and offered their expert opinions on how to position the offer for success. We didnt win the first one, but no fault to Bob or Kat. This one was beyond our budget and way above asking price.Bob and Kat are patient, easy to work with, and extremely knowledgeable. They go the extra mile and take joy in helping others succeed. We really came to appreciate this when we made an offer on our second house. We bid way under asking (despite their recommendation) and yet they stood by us and fought for us. Kat presented our offer and was so appealing that they actually considered our offer even with a higher priced offer on the table. Kat, however, presented our low offer with confidence and we were once again impressed with their commitment to our endeavors.On the third try, we were successful. However, the road to actually acquiring this house was long and Bob and Kat were there for us every step of the way. Although we did not have the highest offer on this house, Bob worked hard with the selling agent to ensure our position as the backup offer. These efforts were above and beyond the basic requirements, and Bobs dedication again surpassed our expectations. As luck would have it, the winning bid fell through and our backup offer was accepted on the house. The Bedburys encouraged us to have a second inspection done, and this inspection raised some concerns that had been previously overlooked. Because of these concerns, we spent several weeks working with the Bedburys negotiating a reduced purchase price with the sellers. This was a very stressful and tedious process, and both Bob and Kat were very supportive and communicative during this process. They made sure that we were informed of every new development as soon as possible, andthat we were comfortable with each step that was taken. In the end, we were able to work out a deal that made everyone happy and most importantly we now have a house that we love for a price that was within our budget.Team Bedbury is a recipe for success. We highly recommend Bob & Kat to anyone looking for a realtor team with a wealth of knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile on your behalf. We are confident that Bob and Kat are one of the best realtor teams on the Peninsula.Thank you Team Bedbury, for being so amazing. We cannot thank you enough!Jeff and Christy Missad

    • We first met Bob and Kathryn through our aunt and uncle who recommended their services when we were planning our move from Atlanta, Georgia to the Bay Area. During our home search, it was difficult for us to be there in person and so Bob and Kathryn accommodated our unique situation by providing us with extensive information on homes we would be interested in. They were always ready to answer any questions we had, were very professional and were a real pleasure to work with in our search. They helped us find the perfect home that met all our needs and were able to help us secure an excellent deal on it.Many of our friends thought we were crazy to purchase a home on the other side of the country without having seen it but with the help of Bob and Kathryn and the trust that we (and our aunt and uncle) had in them, we were confident we were making the right decision and happy to save ourselves an extra trip. The Bedbury's proved us right in trusting them because we absolutely love our house and could not think of a more perfect house and neighborhood for us.Since we did not move into our house until almost 2 months after closing, the Bedbury's went beyond what we expected of them and helped us with many aspects of relocation and managing our house from watering our plants to connecting us with services we would need for our new home. They really made us feel like friends rather than clients in making sure everything was taken care of and we were happy.Thank you Bob and Kathryn for helping us find the home of our dreams and helping to make our move to California go smoothly. We could not recommend anyone better than you two to help people find their dream home!
