"Kimm and Jennifer just helped us find a condo for our parents, who are moving across the country. It was a great experience all around, under circumstances that could have been stressful. Their attention to detail is so appreciated. They are great professionals and I highly recommend them."

"Jennifer and Kimm were our real estate agents for the purchase of our new home in Portola Valley and the sale of our old home in Woodside - which happened back-to-back. I can say with certainty that without Kimm and Jennifer’s expertise and willingness to move quickly, neither of the transactions would have been as successful as they were. On the purchase of our new home, Jennifer and Kimm ensured everything worked seamlessly from strategizing on the appropriate offer price, etc. to effectively managing all follow-up negotiations. Their sophisticated approach to deals ensured that our offer was the “winning” one. On the sale of our old home, they made sure that staging, inspections, etc. were well-organized and caused as little disruption to our family as possible. They were fantastic at developing our offer collection strategy and then updating us once offers started to come in from potential buyers. All this resulted in our house selling within a week of being on the market (which was impressive, given interest rates rose that week!).

Not only are Jennifer and Kimm extremely savvy real estate experts, but they are wonderful to work with on a personal level. Their calm and fun demeanors made us feel completely at ease and we always felt that they had everything under control. We are so glad that we worked with Jennifer and Kimm - unfortunately, we won’t be able to work with them again because they found us our “forever” home :-), but we recommend them without any hesitation!"

"We recently used Jennifer and Kimm to sell our house in Portola Valley. We've bought and sold a few times in our lives and never experienced this type of service. From the initial no-pressure consults, staging, landscaping, negotiating, and closing everything was seamless. We felt confident throughout the process and reassured along the way. Selling can be stressful and they were there to hold our hands. They had a referral for everything and met with all of the contractors to get the house ready. They even helped us with relocation details to help us get to the Midwest! It was the easiest process and we wouldn't hesitate recommending them to everyone in this area and beyond! They can handle anything you throw at them! Best of luck to Jennifer and Kimm. They are truly one of a kind in this market and get it done and done right."

"Kimm and Jennifer helped my husband and me find our dream home to buy. We worked with them before, when they helped us renting a perfect house. And they were the obvious choice for us, when we decided to buy. They know how to take our needs into account, and are very responsive and adapt to any situation or last-minute need. They are very prepared and professional and have helped us on every aspect, often with a lot of advice, always answering our doubts or questions, in a thorough and precise way. We can never thank them enough for helping us make our dream come true and we definitely recommend them."

"Jennifer and Kimm are an incredible team. They are real estate agents for Compass. Thanks to them I was able to find my new home here in Menlo Park Ca. It was not an easy process by any means. Coming from outside the area, I was in sticker shock and feeling as if I’d never find my forever home! Together, they were such encouragers with such amazing patience. Gently they explained what I’d need to do to make life here a reality. For me, it meant scaling back on my “stuff” big time. It also meant a much smaller place and much older then I was used to. They were continually sending me new listings. I learned pretty quickly that unless you act immediately, the listing would not be there to ponder. Each time I saw a home, they would continue to give me the reasons for value in the area as well as a home for me. When the time came for the purchase of the right home, they acted swiftly with complete transparency, honesty and a strong sense of knowledge and confidence. They are two very lovely ladies that I would highly recommend if you are ever in the need of a purchase of real estate. I feel as if I’ve also acquired two new friends as well! If I ever needed to sell, I would not hesitate to call them!"

"I cannot say enough good things about Kimm and Jenn's services in helping me to sell my condo, last month. If you are looking to sell a home, look no further than these two. You won't be disappointed!
Kimm and Jenn both care a tremendous amount and it seems like every detail was covered proactively and professionally. Selling a home is stressful and Kimm and Jenn do everything they can to take as much stress out of the process as possible. Kimm and Jenn were available all the time to answer my questions promptly and completely. Even when hiccups arose, as they invariably did, both Kimm and Jenn worked overtime with their team to resolve the issues. Kimm and Jenn know the local market and worked with me to price my home competitively. This resulted in multiple offers and a sale price over $50K above the asking price. Their stager, Marla, did a fantastic job, as well. In fact, during the open house, we got tons of feedback from prospective buyers that my condo showed the best of all the other similar condos on the market, in my complex. You can't get much better than that!
When I returned home after the sale had been completed, and saw the great job the stager had done, one comment I had was "I wish I'd done this years ago to my place!"

"We've worked with Kimm on three real estate transactions over the course of 10+ years (we worked with Jennifer on the most recent transaction as well). Kimm is a professional in the truest sense - she cares about the details, gets to know her clients and their (changing) needs, and firmly pursues her clients' interests. In all our interactions, we found Kimm and Jennifer to be responsive, reliable, patient, and very familiar with the regional markets. The reason Kimm has our repeat business is because we trust her to have our interests in mind. Having such a team to help navigate the Bay Area home purchase process is invaluable."

"My wife and I had worked with Kimm in the past (her client rented a house to us), and when we returned to the area to look for a house to purchase, Kimm was the only realtor we considered. Kimm and Jennifer listened and knew what we were looking for, and there was no time wasted with properties that didn't meet our needs. They're also incredibly knowledgeable about the geography, its quirks, its requirements, and its buyers and sellers, and that was able to save us critical time in finding and closing on a house. Kimm and Jennifer also shepherded the process in all aspects (mortgage, seller, etc.) so that we were always up to the second on any key developments. As a result, we were able to buy an amazing house quickly and with no surprises during or after the purchase."

"Jennifer and Kimm were fantastic! As first-time home buyers, they helped us walk through the whole process and encouraged us to look at lots of houses to better understand what we really wanted. They are very familiar with Bay Area real estate which allows them to get heads up on housing coming to market from other agents which were super helpful. We ended up finding an amazing home which we got below asking even in a super hot market!"

"My husband and I are incredibly fortunate and eternally grateful to have had Jennifer and Kimm as our real estate team when purchasing our (first) home. From beginning to end, they made our buying experience truly wonderful. Their knowledge of the local market, years of expertise combined with an ability to listen, communicate, and immediately respond to every question made the entire process run smoothly and stress-free."

" I was interviewing agents to help me sell my home and I was very impressed with Jennifer and Kimm. They came prepared with market data that was specific to my neighborhood. They are familiar with the neighborhood which made me trust them to sell my home. This was my first time selling a home and I wasn’t familiar with anything that needed to be done. They pretty much held my hand through it all, from setting me up with a stager, helping get my house ready for photos, painting, and cleaning, to setting up all the appointments to get my home inspected. I am so glad to have chosen them to sell my home. I always knew what was going on and was as comfortable (as I could be) during this time. They were receptive when I was stressing and were always there to help me through it. Once my home was sold they helped me get my new home. I would highly recommend them to sell anyone’s home."
