    • Kevin was awesome. I had a very challenging transaction, and Kevin stayed patient and optimistic, even when I wasn't. There was a lot of extra work in this one (some known at the start, some unknown), and Kevin handled it all with a great attitude. Can't say enough great things about Kevin. Also a good guy on top of being a talented Realtor.

    • Kevin is a great realtor!! We were first time homebuyers and didn't know a lot about the process. Kevin took the time to explain everything to us and always patiently answered all of our questions. He made us feel comfortable and confident with the whole home buying process which can be overwhelming and discouraging in this market. We would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a home in the Bay Area.

    • Kevin helped us buy our new home in the super competitive San Francisco market. We worked with him 4 years before that buying our condo in the city, and we knew we'd want to work with him again to upgrade to a bigger space. We looked for 10 months and made several offers, and Kevin never pressured us to make a decision we were not comfortable with. In fact, he several times advised us against a property which could have had long term issues for us, rather than just pushing us into a deal for the sake of a sale, like some other agents might have done. Kevin is very knowledgeable about various SF building regulations, having worked as an appraiser before, which is important as many homes have illegal units and have built additional space without proper permits. We were OK with some of that buying in a sellers' market, but some listings had serious issues we wanted to stay away from.Another benefit of working with Kevin is that we usually had a pretty good sense of what a property will eventually sell for. List price in SF has very little to do these days with the eventual sale price, but Kevin could give us a pretty close range due to his understanding of the market and ability to create relationships with selling agents.We eventually bought a pre-MLS house Kevin found and alerted us to, which was less competitive in terms of bids, as it never had a formal open house. There were some complexities to our deal that he helped us navigate and negotiate, and I felt at ease knowing that he had our best interest in mind. We got all we wanted in a new home, and more!

    • We met Kevin randomly as he was the agent for an open house we went to last minute. We liked off the bat and could tell he knew the market very well. We called him a week later and he became our agent. It took us two tries to find the home of our dreams! He is very easy to work with, extremely honest and knowledgeable of the current market. He is very quick at responding at all hours of the day and night. We sometimes wondered if he slept. He is very passionate about what he does and is all about customer service. This is a very tough market and he was able to help us get a home at a fair price and also sell our existing home in less than a week! If we could give him 100 stars we would. Thank you Kevin for being a man of integrity and being so easy to work with through this stressful process.

    • We recently bought our dream house thanks to Kevin. This was our first time and he had tremendous patience guiding us through the process. He is extremely knowledgable, detail-oriented and reliable. We visited several houses with him and always felt that he was 100% there to help. And thanks to his experience as a former appraiser, he really understands houses down to the details and knows what is important. Kevin went out of his way to make sure that we got the perfect home, he even went to present our offer in person to the sellers. Everything went extremely smooth thanks to Kevin! We would definitely recommend him to anyone!
