Great Results!

Kathy Krize has represented us as both our listing agent and as a buyer's agent. When we sold our home she used her excellent marketing skills and was able to get the maximum price for our home. Equally impressive was her professionalism and dedication when we purchased our home. She is a great negotiator and answered all of our questions accurately and quickly to guide us through the purchasing process. We have recommended Kathy to our friends and family with the great same results.

Exceptional Professional!

Letter from my client to Manager:

You sent me a letter  asking how the sale of my house and purchase of another one went.  As far as I am concerned, as well as possible.  Kathy helped me to buy the one I sold and I found her to be excellent at that time.  I know where to go for my real estate needs as long as she is around.  I have worked with a number of agents over the years so I have a basis of comparison.

Specifically she is responsive, getting back to me promptly.  She is knowledgeable, has good instincts and knows when to ask for help.

I think she understands the market and she has always been patient with me who is probably more picky than most.  She is diligent and task oriented but also able to help an anxious client like me through stressful times.

Please feel free to share my thoughts with Kathy and whoever needs to know about this exceptional professional. (Repeat business)

She Just Made Things Happen!

Kathy Krize at Keller Williams did an amazing job for us. We worked with her through a solid year until we found and secured our dream home. She always made us feel like we were her only clients. She was immediately responsive by phone/text/email. Even when on vacation, although she had coverage set up for us, she would still check in with us and email us the same day if there was anything going on. What I liked best was that I felt like she had our best interest in mind. We never felt pressured. Instead, we felt like she just asked the right questions to understand our taste, and was really able to help us screen out things that didn't match that so that we didn't have to waste our time. And she was spot on. In addition, she didn't try to sell us on anything to just close the deal, but rather really made sure that we were happy with what we were offering on. I still remember her asking me point blank as I was handing her my deposit check for an offer, whether I was sure we would be happy in that house. I felt like she was my family by the end of this, and I actually teared up thinking that our weekly visits looking at homes were ending, despite being thrilled with our home purchase. The exceptional thing about Kathy is that, despite being very easy going and open to our wants and needs, she was extremely effective in the business dealings that ensued in the offering and negotiation phase. She was very straightforward with us about what needed to be done, and she helped us negotiate and secure the deal through the closing. I have to say that the market is really tough in general in terms of buying a great house, both in the offers/negotiations and the mortgage aspects, and she just fought for us to get through that every step of the way, including after closing and during a rent back period. I cannot imagine ever having successfully purchased the house we wanted without her, and I cannot recommend her more highly. Kathy just makes things happen, in the best way possible.

She Knows the Market!

Kathy Krize has been my realtor since 2002, when she helped me every step of the way during a purchase. Kathy is knowledgeable, experienced and smart. She completely understands strategies needed to make successful offers. Kathy is professional, organized and savvy. She knows the market and, because she keeps up with real estate economics and trends, she continually assesses my situation and helps me evaluate the value of my property. I know she will be there whenever I want to make my next real estate sale or purchase. I trust Kathy's know-how and I take her advice seriously. Kathy is patient and personable and has a realistic, no-nonsense approach to real estate transactions. I simply would not want any other agent leading me through a purchase or sale in this market.

Kathy was an invaluable part of our buying experience.  She is a fantastic combination of smart, tireless, pleasant and patient.  We had a somewhat challenging closing due to some difficulties with our lender and Kathy was able to skillfully and successfully calm an increasingly impatient seller.  I highly recommend her.

Multiple Offers!

As a longtime builder of luxury homes in the area, my requirements have to include the bottom line: more money and less time getting it.  I was delighted to get multiple offers on my property which sold within two weeks for well over the asking price.  I attribute a large part of our success to Kathy's exceptional marketing and sales strategy.

Great Job!

Just a note to thank you for the great job you did.  After I had unsuccessfully struggled for six months to sell the home in Portola Valley, you sold it in a couple of weeks.  Your hard work and utmost professionalism produced the desired result- the sale- in an extremely short period of time.
