      • We had never sold a home before and were astounded and excited to have found such a great realtor in Kimberly. Our experience with her in selling and buying our home was a positive and professional one. Kimberly listened to the many little details that were so important in finding the right home for us. Her attention to detail, diligence, patience and professionalism led to a successful sale of our first home and the purchase of our second home. Kimberly wasnt only our Realtor, she became our friend."

      • We worked with Kimberly Leal in finding our home in Sunnyvale. She showed us many homes in different neighborhoods and helped us choose the neighborhood that we ended up buying in. Kimberly was always very responsive to our needs and was great throughout the transaction process. She has also been a great resource for us since our closing and has given us great recommendations for other professionals.

        - Tom Mensch
      • I have known Kimberly Leal for may years and always found her to be professional, knowledgeable, straightforward and timely in her responses and follow up. She has also worked with several people I know and has given great advice, made sure they made the necessary renovations/repairs/updates at reasonable levels with good vendor recommendations. She has sold properties for more than they were listed, quickly and with few issues. I will certainly contact her for the next property I need to sell, or when I am in the market to buy, and would suggest that you can't go wrong hiring Kimberley for your Real Estate needs!

      • Kimberly is a great relator. She has a lot of contacts in various professions that help with the selling process of a house. Need a plumber, contractor and so forth to help facilitate a sale; Kimberly knows someone. She has a cheery happy outgoing personality that puts one at ease. Even when the unexpected popped up in the sale of our house she help sail us to comer waters. To buy or sell a future house I would use her again

      • Kimberly Leal went above and beyond in assisting us with the sale of our property. From the beginning, she demonstrated commitment to the process and remained dedicated throughout our extensive preparations. She provided honest assessments and followed with the necessary guidance to complete the suggested tasks. Kimberly works with an amazing team of contractors, designers, staging personnel and cleaners, all of whom were able to transform our home in a very timely manner to meet our listing deadline. Kimberly was thorough in her advertisement of our listing and accommodated the showings and open houses that interested parties requested. Kimberly is extremely professional yet sensitive to her client's concerns. All in all, we are very pleased with Kimberly's commitment to and the success of the sale of our home and would highly recommend her services to others

      • Kimberly is a Northern California native with extensive local knowledge. As I was nervous about buying my first home, Kimberly was incredibly patient in showing multiple locations that fit my criteria and expertly guided me through the short sale process. She's sensitive to each client's different needs. Even though short sales can take a long time to close, she went above and beyond in me focused and calm over several months. The seller's agent actually said that Kimberly was one of the most professional people she had ever had the pleasure of working with. I've sent several friends and coworkers her way, and I'm always excited when someone asks for a recommendation because I trust Kimberly to take care of them!

      • Kimberly was very patient with us showing us property after property. We had her chasing down different types of property in different cities. We ended up with a townhouse in Mountain View. Another realtor asked us how many offers we put in before getting our townhouse and when we replied, one, I knew they were impressed. That underscores Kimberly's ability to handle negotiations.The best testimonial we could give to anyone looking for a real estate agent is Kimberly will work as hard for you After your purchase.

      • Kimberly was an excellent Realtor! She listened attentively and therefore really understood our needs. She showed us houses that matched our requests. Even after we bought the house, she checked in on us to ensure everything was going well. It was a delight to work with her. We highly recommend Kimberly as a Realtor.

        - Loyal Client
      • Kim is very personable and always has a smile on her face. She is also very easy to get a hold of and responds quickly to any questions or concerns. She is a pleasure to work work with and I would absolutely recommend her.

      • We worked with Kimberly when searching for a place where I could live during the workweek - really just needed a place to sleep, but wanted it to be safe. Kimberly convinced us that we also needed to consider resale value - and her knowledge of the local area and specific neighborhoods was extremely valuable. Now - five years later we're going to sell (with a nice profit) - and will again use Kimberly.

      • Being a newbie to real estate buying, I thought I would be able to save some money by using one of the online real estate websites that touted money back upon close of escrow. While that service worked for a while, I found that I really needed to find someone that would be working for me in the process of finding a home, previewing properties ahead of time, and acting as the key advocate and negotiator for me in the process. I found that person in Kimberly Leal from Keller Williams Realty-Silicon Valley. I was referred to Kimberly from friends that utilized her services when they purchased their home. Frustrated with my initial experience with real estate, when we first met, I let Kimberly know what I was looking for in an agent, what areas that I was interested in, and my price range. I knew from our first meeting that she was the agent I had been looking for, and that it would be a great partnership. Kimberly's skills and commitment to me as her client was evident with each of the offers that we put in. She made sure that our documents were in line, that the offer prices that we went in with was competitive, and made sure to build a rapport with the listing agent to ensure that they knew who we were. With the fourth and final offer, the listing agent stated that our packet was so professional and that he knew that Kimberly would be so easy to deal with in closing the deal, that he got his client to accept our offer. Following several months of visiting homes, putting in four offers, and navigating and negotiating in a hot real estate market, we finally closed on a house just recently. Kimberly was a class act the entire way, and I know that we wouldn't have been able to close the deal without her help. She took the once daunting task of finding a home into one that was manageable and in the end totally paid off. If you are looking for an agent that will stand by your side the entire process, look no farther than Kimberly Leal from Keller Williams.

      • Kimberly helped us with the sale of our home. She looked after our best interest at all times. She was there for all of the inspections, repairs, marketing tour and open houses. She marketed the property so well that we had a record number of people through our open houses. She got us several offers and the property sold well over asking price in a very short period of time. We came through a stressful process without a hitch. We will use Kimberly again for any of our future purchases or sale of our home.

        - Art & Kathy Simione
      • Kim helped us sell our house at a time when we thought it would be difficult to sell (December). She reassured us that she would make sure that the house was marketed properly and we would get a lot of interest. Kim was true to her word. She did an amazing job marketing our house and we had multiple offers even before our first open house. Our house sold within a week with multiple offers and well over the asking price. Kim was wonderful to work with. Sheanswered all of our questions and was very responsive to our needs. I referred her to other friends and would use her again in a heart beat. Thank you Kim for all your hard work!!

      • Kimberly is very patient, knowledgeable, ethical and helpfulprofessional and these qualities are apparent in the results she brings by her work. She has a very good philosophy and never compromises the integrity of process and her own professional ethics. Before making the decision to sell our home, we had several casualdiscussions with Kim about the selling process and various options open to us (including renting out). At no point did we feel pushed or rushed to finalize our plans. Instead, Kimberly was supportive and helpful providing the latest market data and tips from time to timethat helped us understand the process and consider various scenarios. Finally, when we decided to sell the house, she had a crystal clear plan ready with all unknowns duly documented in no time. This plan was detailed to the point with schedule of each task and how and who would do it. We had to travel overseas while all the repair/painting/flooring and other work was going on. Kimberly took care of coordination of all thework using her well oiled network of contractors, stagers and other professionals. Our house was on market while we were away. She communicated with us via cell-phone, email and other media to provide day-to-day progress of all the work and other updates. We ended up getting multiple offers and sold at much more than we hadever imagined in the very first week. Getting such results in toughReal-estate market needs not only an efficient but extremely dedicated Real-estate agent. We are very happy with our decision to use Kimberly's help in selling our house and would recommend to everyone we know.

      • Our first experience with a realtor was not a positive one. So, when we decided to sell our first home, we were worried about finding the right realtor. Our friend referred us to Kimberly and from the moment we met with her, we were impressed. She came completely prepared with a detailed pricing guide for our property and process for selling our home. Kimberly constantly kept us up to date on the progress with respect to what needed to be done and the outcome of each open house. She supported us throughout the process by answering allour questions and re-assuring us that our house would sell even given the slow market situation. With her experience and diligence, we were able to sell our first home. Kimberly made selling our home a very positive experience. We would definitely refer Kimberly to anyone looking for a realtor. Thank you Kimberly for everything!

      • We cannot express our gratitude enough you been so helpful. Thank you so much for your hard work. You did such a good job resolving issues as they happened. Everything was handled so well as we were dealing with a family members illness out of town. We will never forget you. Peace and love to you, you are a wonderful person!

        - Steve & Sharon Wilson
      • Dear Kimberly I would recommend your service to any of my friends and co-workers. You are a wonderful, knowledgeable, carrying and professional listing agent. You provided me with great service and support during the entire process of selling and buying my property. I left everything in your capable hands and I felt very relieved not having to stress with all the details that needs to be dealt with when selling/buying a home. I know I admit of not being the most patience person in the world and I thank you for always keeping me focused. You kept me well informed every step of the way and took the time to explain real estate terms I did not understand. You knew what I wanted and we did not waste lots of time looking at places that were not in my vision. The entire process of selling and buying my home was very pleasant because of you. Thank You!
