Kristin really knows the ins and outs of real estate. She knows market trends in every neighborhood, what to watch out for when buying a house, and makes the tedious parts of home buying seem seamless. It felt good going to open houses, telling other agents who my agent was and then replying with you are in good hands. She was so patient with me and always responsive and available to show me houses. She helped me find and get the perfect home.
From the very first contact with Kristin over a year ago, we knew that she had strong industry insight, knowledge of East Bay neighborhoods, and the communication skills to help us both buy and sell our current homes. The whole process was simplified by transparent timelines and keeping us in the loop throughout a tricky process. We appreciated how quickly she worked, was always available, and most importantly, worked hard for us to meet our family's timelines. We don't plan on moving anytime soon, but if we ever have any real estate needs (or Walnut Creek questions/recommendations), we will be contacting Kristin again!
Kristin Lanham is an experienced realtor, she did a stellar job selling my condo! With her insight and know-how, the small kitchen was transformed, a little paint on a couple of walls, and a few little tweaks -- within a week my condo went from a rental unit to a beautifully staged, professionally photographed unit that was market ready! I had a buyer within 15 days. I am grateful for her expertise!
Kristin is both knowledgeable and dedicated to help make your real estate transaction as smooth as possible. She's very responsive to any questions you have about the process, provides sound advice when negotiating a price, and goes the extra mile to advocate for your best interest when getting the deal done.
Kristin is great. As first time home buyers she walked guided us through the process each step of the way. She is thorough and direct and I appreciate her being available at random hours fielding my calls.

I would recommen Kristin to anyone looking for a real estate agent who knows the bay area.
I highly recommend Kristin! She made the process of purchasing a home a fast and pleasant experience. She's incredibly knowledgeable and helped us feel at ease the entire time. We will definitely be using her services in the future.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2019 in Moraga, CA.
Kristin was an amazing partner during our move to the Walnut Creek / Lamorinda area from out of state. Kristin easily worked with our loan broker and insurance representative. Her team worked really hard to move us quickly through inspections despite some unusual circumstances that posed some delays. Despite being out of state during much of the process she kept us informed and maintained clear lines of communication. She has a wealth of contacts to assist with home buying, inspections and repairs. Kristin was extremely insightful during negotiations when we were in contract as well. And... she is a pleasure to work with. We knew she had our best interests at heart.

I can't thank Kristin enough for her help finding my first home! She went out of her way to explain every detail of the process to me as well as make herself available (sometimes at the last minute) to show me houses I was interested in viewing. She also made great recommendations for inspectors, contractors, even lenders from her extensive list of contacts. She's great at evaluating houses and really giving honest, educated opinions on the properties and the market. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home, I truly couldn't have done it so effortlessly without her!

Sold a home in 2019 in San Ramon Village, Dublin, CA 94568.
This is our forth transaction (selling and purchasing) with Kristin within the last 6 years. Obviously I do not trust working with anyone else but Kristin.

I'm a very meticulous client- reviewing numbers, contract verbiage and the fine print. Kristin remained patient with me and always walked me through everything until I was comfortable. We had constant dialogue every single day throughout the entire process. She responds in minutes! She always gave her honest advice, even if it could impact her commission, because she truly just looks at our best interest at the end of the day. My little kids even love her!

She's blunt, aggressive, and straight to the point which I love and appreciate because she gets the job done fast and right, especially in a market that's as competitive as it is in the Bay Area.
Bought a Condo home in 2019 in Pleasant Hill, CA.
Kristin was extremely helpful through the entire process. She spent the time to really understand our needs and with her expert knowledge of the surrounding towns was able to show us exactly what we were looking for.

Her responsiveness was exceptional. It was like we were her only clients. Whenever I had a question or concern she was there to either answer my questions on the spot or with a little investigation got right back to me. Also her broad network of tradesman and home inspectors was extremely helpful.

It was a pleasure working with Kristin and I would highly recommend her.
Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Clayton Valley, Concord, CA.
Kristin was a fabulous agent to work with and made our experience in buying our first home stress free and positive. She took the time to explain to us the process and also helped to connect us with a fabulous lender that was prompt and responsive. We are extremely grateful to have worked with Kristin and appreciate her direct feedback, knowledge of the market and area where we were looking to purchase and made solid recommendations. We trusted her feedback, which is extremely important when working with an agent and would highly recommend her to others looking to buy in the Walnut Creek/Concord area!

Kristin was terrific to work with. She helped us find the perfect home and then kept us up to date constantly when our construction took much longer than expected. I would highly recommend her expertise.
Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Gregory Gardens, Pleasant Hill, CA.
We were matched up with Kristin by our relocation company upon moving to the Bay Area. Kristin was very patient with us as we were navigating a cross country move and trying to find our feet in a new area. She helped is really hone into what we wanted and provided excellent feedback and advice throughout the whole process. She was always available for any questions we might have and made the buying process as smooth as possible.

Not only is Kristin a good realtor, but she's an all around great person. We loved getting to know her and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Sold a home in 2018 in West Hartley, Antioch, CA 94531.
I have known Kristin for some time, and she has been just as dependable from the start to the finish. 13 years ago she sold me my first condo, and I was happy to have her assist in my family home.

She is the best on sales, and will really help in the final closing.
Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Livermore, CA.
We faced some challenges in finding our first home together. We made offers on three houses before finally finding the right one for us. Kristin helped us so much throughout the process. Her perseverance and optimism prevented us from getting discouraged. She has extensive knowledge of all aspects of the process, which became even more valuable when we ran into issues. We are so happy with the home we purchased and we know it is the best one for us. We would definitely work with Kristin again if we decide to buy another home and we will recommend her to our friends.
Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Pleasant Hill, CA.
Kristin is great. She is honest, responsive, and knows the area really well. She did a wonderful job helping us navigate the purchasing process (we are first-time home buyers) and we were very pleased with her negotiation skills. In addition, she has experience with VA loans which was critical to us since we live in a very competitive market where there isn't much of a military community. We would certainly recommend Kristin and we would love to work with her again in the future.

I usually don't take the time to take surveys and give reviews. But in this case, I just wanted to commend Kristin Lanham for her due diligence and dedication throughout the entire process. She is very professional and conscientious which I believe to be her best qualities. She seems to always have her clients best interest at heart. She was very instrumental in providing local contractors which helped keep us on track. She worked closely with our other realtor representing us out of the area which facilitated our dream home in the foot hills becoming a reality. In closing, I would highly recommend Kristin Lanham for all your real estate needs.

Kristin was an absolute gem! Her knowledge of the current market helped guide us to make informed decisions, and navigate the selling process with ease. She was readily available to answer any questions we had, provided us with updates throughout the course of the sale and the flexibility to meet with us around our schedule.

Kristin did a fantastic job working with me to find my perfect "forever" home. She listened so well to my requirements that the first home she showed me was the ONE. It had every single item I required plus a couple additional awesome features. This was the 4th home I had purchased over a 15 year period and I had excellent credit. However, the financing of my new home turned into a nightmare. I purchased the home around the same time the banks has been caught giving loans to anyone (even those who didn't qualify) and millions of home loans were in default. Kristin went above and beyond to work with the lender in getting the paperwork completed EXACTLY how they needed it. I have been in my home for 4 years now and Kristin and I have become friends. She is honest and very hard working. She wants nothing more than for you to be happy with your new home. She will go above and beyond to make sure the process is as smooth as possible. If I ever decide to sell / move to another home I would definitely use Kristin again as my realitor.
Kristin did a wonderful job in helping us find our new home in Walnut Creek. We had decided to move from Roseville back to the Walnut Creek area to be closer to family, which price-wise is a difficult direction to move. With her knowledge of the area's market and a good understanding of our needs and priorities (single story, good location, etc), Kristin showed us many great homes in our price range. Because the market was so tight at the time, we were outbid on the first 3 or 4 homes on which we made offers. Finally Kristan found the perfect place for us - affordable (for the area), single story with gteat potential for a make-over to exactly suit our needs, and an ideal location.
We have been in our home for three years now and could not be happier with our home . We are very grateful for Kristin's professional guidance and help throughout the search, bidding and closing processes.

I found Kristin Lanham's telephone number in a real estate ad, contacted her and met her. Together we visited between 10-12 Rossmoor apartments for sale. I trusted her because she was open, relaxed and said: "I believe in good karma" - she really does! She convinced me, found a "manor" whose surroundings reminded me of my own house. She took care of the paper work. All I needed was a giant check. That almost did not happen when the Bank of the West in Orinda was robbed the very day I tried to get the check. Level-headed and quick-thinking Kristin suggested that I try the Lafayette Branch. Done! It was smooth sailing with her and everything fell into place. A good experience. Thank you, Kristin.
