Stephen Capper recommends Kenneth Er

Great agent, just helped us purchase a beautiful property in Orinda. Lots of advice to help you know what you are getting yourself into and make the right decisions as well as put together really well structured offers to make sure you are as competitive as your price and risk tolerance allows. Also had great recommendations and connections to vendors/contractors for offer/escrow and post purchase fixes which makes the whole process much easier. Highly recommend working with Ken.

David L. recommends Individual Users 1

Don, again, you and your staff have come through for me in stellar fashion. This is our third transaction together and every time 1 am impressed at your professionalism and commitment to your client. You shouldn't be selling real estate; you should be teaching others how to do it correctly. In the last couple of years, I did a couple of transactions and didn't use you and, to tell you the truth, I regret not using your services. The comparison between other, so-called "professionals" and you is like night and day. Again, you went to bat for me on a price and commission reduction to your possible detriment. As such, I enclose a check to make up for your loss of commission. I've also included the lost commission from the other realtors as I feel you earned it more than they did.
I have to congratulate Eddie and the rest of your staff for how they handled this. Everybody seemed enthusiastic and committed to getting the job done right and on time. The systems you have in place and the checks and balances virtually ensure a trouble-free deal. Well done! I've included a little extra in your check. Please send these kind folks off to a nice dinner on me.
I have dealt with realtors my whole life as my father sold real estate. I have bought and sold several houses and have helped other people in their transactions. I have worked with countless realtors while looking for property, dropping in for open houses, and actual hands-on transactions. I have yet to earn: anybody with the style, politeness, thoroughness, professionalism and care that you bring to the industry.
You want a reference? You can have anybody, anytime, call me and I'll be happy to let them know they could be doing a lot worse than engaging your team.

Legesm from Seattle, WA recommends Individual Users 1

My husband and I recently worked with Stacia and her team to secure a home loan with Homestreet Bank. Stacia and her team were knowledgable, thorough, helpful, and always available!! Stacia was available on evenings, weekends, anytime you name it....she was always available to prepare pre-approval letters so we can turn around and quickly put in offers on homes. This greatly helped us be competitive and make offers quickly in the crazy Seattle market. I can't recommend Stacia and her team enough.

Brandon Foken recommends Kenneth Er

Ken represented me in a purchase and he did an amazing job! We had a difficult situation with a former tenant dragging their feet to move out and he communicated with the seller's agent and me constantly until the situation was resolved. Would recommend without hesitation.

Sue P recommends Linda Van Couvering

My experience with Linda has been exceptional. Her thoroughness, professionalism, and ability to re-do the home so it would sell for top dollar has been really remarkable. �I have been a Real Estate Broker for 30 years (and am not practicing right now) and I would say I could name 5 Realtors who I would consider outstanding and I would put Linda in that category. From start to finish she has been outstanding.

I can't say enough about The Hornsby Team! So professional and has always looked out for my best interest when it comes to my investment. Sheree has helped me over the years in staging all my homes to sell. Have always had such a great experience working with her and now that Sheree and Connor are teaming up in the Real Estate field I'm looking forward to working with them both.

Wendy K recommends Linda Van Couvering

Linda Van Couvering stood out for good reason when I first interviewed numerous realtors as I embarked on selling my beloved home. Not only was her vision for preparing the house most efficient, and her estimated sale price most optimistic and spot on, but Linda was delightful from the beginning. When the independent general inspector on behalf of us, the sellers, discovered additional maintenance was needed, Linda sustained her positive demeanor and professionalism while she stepped up to manage each stage of unforeseen repairs. Linda tracked and oversaw the work of each subcontractor, providing me with meticulous records, billing and document signing procedures while I, the homeowner, was already living remotely. Linda expertly advised us with detailed explanations, was incredibly patient and understanding, and led the entire project through the timeline that she set. What could have become a hard situation became the sale of our home in a seamless process. Because of Linda's wealth of experience, wisdom, dedication and good nature, our Berkeley property sold at its top value.

Bill Y recommends Linda Van Couvering

We were in the process of putting our Cypress Street home (Berkeley) on the market when a friend recommended Linda Van Couvering from Berkeley Hills Realty. Linda did a thorough job evaluating our place. Not only did she do an excellent analysis of "comparables," but she found several areas in the house that could use improvements in order to maximize the value. Linda recommended vendors -- with whom she was well familiar -- who could perform the requisite tasks in a first class manner and at a reasonable price. She continually followed up on the enhancements as they were put into place. After a few months, the upgrades were completed. Our Cypress Street home was staged in early January. The marketing brochures were prepared in such a professional manner that the home never looked this good during our tenure. She arranged the Brokers' tour in mid-January and then the public open houses. Within 10 days, Linda received four offers, provided us a spreadsheet with the details, and we accepted one which was well above the listing price. In short order, the contract was signed, the deposit received, and the closing occurred in mid-February. Linda not only took care of all of the details along the way, but kept everyone totally informed about the progress. Linda Van Couvering has enormous knowledge, patience, attention to detail, communication skills, and steadfastness. This combination of abilities enabled us to achieve our goal in a timely fashion and to realize an excellent transaction price.

�K Vichare recommends Cathy Lonsdale

One of my friends recommended Cathy when I was interviewing listing agents to help sell my house. Cathy was one of the two realtors who clicked right from the first meeting. From the onset she demonstrated a high level of professionalism that I expected from any realtor. In addition to the CMA, she also understood my goals and concerns with entrusting my house to any realtor for the sale. At that time I had not decided whether to sell my house or rent it out and Cathy very patiently awaited my decision. Her advise to invest in staging and her professional recommendation of the staging company helped a lot in ensuring my house was presented in the best light possible. Her photographer took stunning photos and videos of the staged house. I'm an intermediate level photographer myself and know how much patience is needed in getting that perfect shot! At one point, looking at the mind blowing photographs of the fully staged house, our family had second thoughts of selling the house and potentially withdrawing from the sale! I had planned to move out at the end of the process after all contingencies were accounted for. However, Cathy advised moving out before the house went on the market. Staying during the time of Corona/Covid-19 is far too much exposure with strangers visiting the house. I did get a chance to visit my house prior to the sale and Cathy had ensured that the house was well kept. On multiple occasions she rushed to the house when the potential buyer's agent reported any issues they observed while viewing the house. Despite the staging, excellent photos and having multiple offers, our first attempt to sell did not succeed. Cathy remained steadfast bringing the same energy as before. She suggested a few different options and strategies to help sell the house. Her timely advice was instrumental in getting offers well above the list price. Throughout the entire process, she kept me well informed and promptly answered the phone. Whenever I had a question about anything in the home-buying process, Cathy was ready with an answer or willing to do the research. These are the very things that set an excellent realtor apart from the average ones. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking in the Silicon Valley area. Needless to say, I will contact Cathy whenever I'm buying or selling a house in the San Francisco Bay Area!!!

Casey H. recommends Caitlin Patterson

Caitlin really impressed us right off the bat. She was attentive, informative and willing to help! We had some ideas of what we were looking for when we first reached out. After talking to us, she asked if she could send us a few of her own recommendations. Thank goodness she did, because one of her recommendations turned out to be the home we fell in love with and bought! Caitlin was great from start to finish. She answered all of our questions, and the few things she had to check on before answering, she did promptly and got back to us right away! We loved Caitlin! Thank you so much for finding our home for us! She also found resources for us that were a huge help and got us money back!

Broker V.P.

I joined Keyes in 1979. I have been blessed with a successful 40 year career and have remained at Keyes despite ongoing attempts of other Brokers to recruit me.
Why? It's Simple. Outstanding leadership, benefits, training among a family atmosphere where efforts are appreciated and recognized. A special thanks to the Pappas family for their ongoing leadership at the forefront of our industry and to our current Manager Mark Sadek for his continued support.

Don & Barbara L. recommend James Mulvey

Jim dedicated two full days to help us find a home in the Venice area of Florida. He was very knowledgeable about the various communities in the area, and he sensed our desires and tastes. He quickly narrowed the search to fit our expectations. Even though we found a home that we really liked, Jim was honest and dissuaded us from making an offer because he believed that we needed to settle some other real estate plans first. We appreciated his candor and his willingness to put our interests above his own. When we are ready to proceed with a purchase in Florida, Jim will be the realtor we will use.

Lisa S recommends James Mulvey

Jim skillfully navigated my elderly, widowed mother through the quite lengthy search for and purchase of a new, smaller home AND the sale of her former home of 38 years with the utmost patience, compassion, and expertise. He was always available, even when traveling, and attentive and responsive to her every need. I am so grateful to Jim for his TLC of Mom throughout this major life change. He is an outstanding real estate professional as well as an honest and genuinely caring human being. Thank you so much, Jim!
