"Bottomline: Kenya is the best. Contact her *now* if you’re looking to purchase in Los Angeles. I’d been dreaming of buying a little corner of the city for years, so much so that I made a needs/wants spreadsheet a year ahead of when I knew I’d be able to consider buying. On that spreadsheet was a tab of real estate agents I’d be interested in working with, but something stood out about Kenya. Her site stated that she was excited to work with first time buyers, and there was a warmth about her that jumped out of the screen. She’s the only agent I needed to meet to know that she was my girl. I was very open about where I was willing to purchase, but she dragged the truth out of me; I wanted to stay in the area I was currently in - Larchmont-adjacent. I didn’t think it was an option at my <$500k budget! I met with Kenya the first week of January. I closed on my dream (under budget!) condo in Hancock Park in mid-March. WHO DOES THAT? Kenya does. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention her incredible staff and cohorts. Her assistant Maggie is impeccable. She checked in on me often, sent reminders, asked questions, and was on top of calling agents about properties I was interested in. Kenya’s recommendation for a mortgage loan officer was spot-on as well. My only complaint about working with Kenya was that the journey to homeownership ended too soon. I was promised happy hours in which we’d gossip and chit-chat about open houses, but Kenya was simply too good at her job! I can’t wait to work with Kenya again, and I’ll be referring all of my friends to her."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are so grateful to have worked with Kenya and her team to find and buy our first home. We closed and moved in a few weeks ago and it is the perfect home for us. Here are some of the highlights:
- Kenya is kind and patient, while also giving her expertise. We had worked with another agent in the past who did not share expertise as Kenya does and that is greatly appreciated.
- The whole LA Homegirl team is highly organized and responsive. Maggie did an awesome job at keeping everything smooth behind the scenes and when we went to open houses or they set up for us to see homes they were always on time and had a smooth itinerary set-up.
- They were also flexible with our complicated schedules/last minute travel and never made us feel guilty for cancelling a visit or when we were slow on an email response.
To sum it up, we spent a lot of time with Kenya over the last year and we truly enjoyed that time. She cares about us and about us finding the right home not just making it happen quickly. She was very assertive and took a lot of actions to help us beat out the other 16 offers and we are so happy in our home."
"Kenya helped us purchase a new home as well as sell our old home. The seller at the old home was as difficult as anyone could imagine and Kenya went above and beyond to help us through the process. She was great!" - Chris
"Words can not express how blessed I am to have found Kenya when I did. I had been looking for a house for months, and after working with an agent who I felt like did NOT have my best interest, I decided to go online and look for professional agents in my area, which is how I found Kenya. From the moment we first spoke on the phone, I knew she was the one. I explained to her I had less than 45 days not just to find a house but also move in otherwise, I would be stuck in another year of renting. Not only was she able to get me the house I wanted but she also helped me save over 20k off the asking price and save me money at closing, which was well needed. Not to mention she was so professional and stay on top of everything even my lender to make sure we closed on time, which we did. I was able to move in two days before I had to move out of my apartment. I could not have asked for a better agent to get me my first house. I know buying a home is very scary. You don't know who to trust or if you are making the right decision, but I guarantee if you have Kenya as your agent you will have someone who will have your best interest at heart and do everything she can to get you in your dream home. Thank you, Kenya for everything you have done for me and my family. You are heaven sent, and I will be recommending you to ALL my friends, family, co-workers, and anyone else I know looking for a home!" - Angela
"Kenya is an unbelievable realtor and an even better human. She walks you through the process from A-Z. Buying a home is nuts, an emotional roller coaster and Kenya is right there with you steadying the ship. She will fight for you every step of the way, she will alert you if something doesn't feel right and most importantly she will listen to you and help you find your dream home. Kenya did that for our family and we owe her everything. The most important thing to take from this review, if and when you decide to go with Kenya you are getting more than just realtor you are getting a life long friend. She will instantly become apart of the family. We can't thank her enough and you are in great hands if you go with her. " - Jamaal
