    • The results first: Kimberly and James got me my dream home for $30,000 less than asking price despite competing against multiple offers in a market where homes consistently sell for over asking price.Kimberly and James are the salt of the earth - two of the most genuine, kind, and good-natured people I have ever met. But don't confuse that kindness for weakness. When your dream home is on the line, this is the duo you want battling for you in one of the toughest real estate markets in the world.As a first time buyer, Kimberly and James were able to navigate me through the entire home buying process. Mine was an especially challenging process due to obstacles ranging from multiple bids, to misrepresentations of the house made by the seller regarding supposedly legal improvements and additions, to issues with city on obtaining permits once the house was already purchased and in my name. Even with all of these hurdles, I never once questioned that the house would be mine.In fact, K and J were able to take advantage of the aforementioned obstacles and manipulate them into a lower final sales price despite the sellers initial insistence that the house was to be sold "as is" with no price adjustments or cash back credits. Making the seller see it our way was no easy feat given that there were multiple other parties still interested in the property.They are truly master negotiators backed up by their great wealth of knowledge of all things real estate, including multiple markets, industry trends, and connections to the best in related services.Despite buying and selling enough houses to be top producers of both their company and region, they always had time to be completely available and flexible to my schedule. These two would literally walk to the ends of the Earth to come through for their clients, and it wouldn't even seem like they were doing it just because it is their job. I really cannot say enough to their character.My only regret with Kimberly and James is that they found me my dream home and closed the deal so quickly that now I just want to buy another home so that I can work with them again!Thank you, Kimberly and James!!

    • Can't say enough about Kimberly and James!! they helped sell my home at a price way above what I expected! they paid attention to all of my concerns and were super comforting and receptive. They were always available to talk and I could tell they were working on the sale even when I wasn't. I can't recommend them enough!!! it's rare to see a team so dedicated and hardworking. If you need to sell a home in and around Santa Rosa, look no where else!!! A++++

      - Eamon Jafari
    • Good planning, great execution, good communication throughout, and excellent negotiation closing.That about sums it up.When you step back and think about it, it really doesn't get much better than this on a real estate transaction.I was out of state the entire time the deal took place, and they handled everything effortlessly.They said what they were going to do, and they did what they said.Honestly, I just cannot recommend them enough. It goes without saying that I will use them on my next transaction for sure.

    • Buying your first home can be very intimidating and scary! However, we are so blessed that Kimberly and James helped us through the process. They are incredibly reliable, honest and caring. They were there for us through out the entire process, answering our calls, emails and text messages at all times (within 30 minutes or less even during the weekends and late evenings!). They are the definition of going "above and beyond". Things can get tense near close of escrow, but Kimberly was always on top of all details to get the deal done on time. I seriously can't think of ever working with anybody else for our real estate needs. I highly recommend them!

      - Lara Rice
    • I honestly don't know why anyone would chose any other realtor! My husband and I chose Kimberly and James to help us buy our first home. We ended up having a case that would require only the best to make it happen. This power couple is the definition of "only the best". They answered, or returned, every phone call or email immediately, had every document ready, every detail in order one step ahead. They met far beyond our expectations. They also helped us move, had a truck ready, gave us gifts, and honestly built a lasting friendship. We changed Kimberly's name in our phone to "secret agent Kimberly" because she was like a super hero in this entire home buying process. We were treated more like family than clients. If you are looking for a real estate agent that will over achieve and literally won't fail, this is the team, right here! If I could give them more stars, I would. Five really doesn't do them justice. Kim and James FTW!

    • When we began a search for a house last Spring, the agent we began with was completely unsatisfactory to the point I felt like tearing my hair and his out. We cut him loose and began a hunt simply on line. I began to notice that Kimberly appeared as seller in successfully completed transactions; so we contacted her, and she responded within 4 hours!!! We set up an appointment for the next day, and Kimberly came with her partner, James, and showed us 2 houses, pointing out problems with each one. This insider knowledge impressed us. and helped us in our search. I was going through chemotherapy, so their knowledge of Santa Rosa and the surrounding area really helped me avoid unnecessary trips up north. When we found the perfect house in the perfect area, they were awesome in helping us put together an offer and negotiating with the owners over a few repair issues quickly and got us the issues dealt with to our satisfaction. Upone closing, they drive south to our current dwelling to deliver keys and a lovely card. Additionally, James is going to help us move next week, complete with moving van! You can't get any more helpful than that! Even relatives have found excuses not to help us move, but James and Kimberly stepped up. I can't recommend these partners enough if you are looking for a home in the Santa Rosa/ Northern Marin County area. These young people are professional, energetic, generous and knowledgable. You simply cannot find better realtors.

    • Working with Kimberly was awesome! She and her husband James put in way more work than is usually expected of a listing agent, and it really helped me out immensely. Not only did they help me get the house ready to sell, but they even helped me move out!

      - Jeff Meadows
    • Kimberly is a pleasure to work with. She is responsive, proactive, organized and helpful. She is knowledgeable, professional, and personable. She is the best!

      - Meredith O'Connor
    • Both James and Kimberley were AWESOME. They handled my sale of existing and purchase of new house. Highly recommend them. They have the inside knowledge of the market and are keenly aware of what's going on and how to plan for your specific situation.

      - Amar Patel
    • Kimberly went above and beyond her duties as a real estate agent. I will recommend to all my friends and family for all real estate transactions. She kept me informed at all times and was very detailed so I understood everything that was going on throughout the entire transaction. She was an excellent negotiator and made sure I got the best deal possible. She made a normally stressful process a lot easier with her communication and professional. All and all she was fantastic! I look forward to working with her in the future.

      - Jim C.
    • Kimberly was absolutely amazing. She showed drive and determination at times when other agents would have shied away. She always had our best interests in mind and kept us up to date at all times. We were able to sell our home above asking price and purchase the perfect new home for our family thanks to Kimberly!

      - Anthony Villegas
    • Kimberly and James are the most professional and knowledgable person. Always willing to go beyond the call of duty. The know how and expertise made our transaction smooth and easy. I will always use Kimberly and James

      - Beverly Hayes
    • We were helped by Kimberly and James in selling our house recently. We had a great experience. Kimberly and James are excellent real estate agents, who always represent their clients benefit, and work very hard to make every process smoothly. Kimberly and James have solid knowledge and experience in real estate business. They are resourceful and have great ideas in helping present our property in the best light. They are absolutely responsible, and always respond to our question immediately and provide detailed plan ahead. Most of all, their enthusiasm in helping us is at the highest level. They met far beyond our expectations. They are the best.

      - Chengpei Xu
    • Kimberly and James are a fantastic team that go above and beyond to make sure their clients are well cared for. They understand that the details are as important as the big picture. Taking quality photos of the home and using social media is just one way they are progressive in their marketing strategies. They are responsive to every phone call, text, and email in such a timely manner that they make you feel as though you are their only client, but their success proves otherwise. Hardworking, honest, professional, and zero pressure; they truly have their clients best interest in minds. You can feel confident having them in your corner navigating the real estate market of negotiations, paperwork, contracts, and the support of moving. Highly recommended!

      - Angie Harrison
    • Kimberly is very professional and goes out of her way to make sure you find the right home. I feel we have made a wonderful friend as well.

      - Iva Clark
    • Kind, reliable, determined - just a few words that come to mind when describing Kim and her partner, James Colucci of Century 21. They did everything we could have hoped for from navigating our unique criteria and circumstances as FTHB's to caring for our kids and boxing our things on move-in day. My family and I are thrilled to be in our new home - many thanks to K & J!

      - Anthony E.
    • She was very helpful in finding our dream home! It was a very difficult and long process, but she stuck with us the whole way and made the transaction very smooth. I don't think we could have done it without her!
