Testimonials

“Kathleen is the consummate real estate professional. In fact, when we started out to meet with three realtors, Kathleen's prep and presentation were so extensive and she had already put so much research and planning into selling our home that she earned a 10 out of 10 at first meeting! And even though she sold our Foster City home in a 'hot' market, her expertise was still essential in making sure we planned and strategized for the myriad of things to go smoothly. Kathleen is super knowledgeable, focused and extremely hard working, from the big picture strategy to the hands on help in actually packing stuff up and doing donation runs to the library and Goodwilll!! Our prep, open houses, and entire selling process was smooth; not from luck, or the great buyers market, but from the of the entire process by a top-notch professional; 100% focused on getting the job done and done right!! And whenever something needed to be done Kathleen had just the right contractor or service to call and with her full database of great vendor relationships the service was always done promptly and cost effectively. We've bought and sold several homes and were always disappointed in at least one or two key aspects of the performance of our past realtors, but with Kathleen, all was smooth and we would work with her again in a heartbeat!”

“We would like to submit this letter in thanks for the work Kathleen Areias Sparer did to complete the sale of our condominium in Foster City. Kathleen's efforts, and attention to detail were invaluable in not only the sale, but especially in the preparation and presentation of our unit! Every case is different, so please indulge me in a little background; Alex and I bought the property some 22 years ago. As we never intended to stay as long as we did, very little (if any) effort was made to remodeling, so when an opportunity arose, we found ourselves with a tidy, but very dated condo. However, we needed to be in another part of the state in only a few weeks' time! On a whim, I asked our flooring contractor (and neighbor) if he might suggest a realtor. Fortunately for us, he recommended Kathleen! Kathleen went well beyond what I would expect of any realtor, coordinating with decorators, painters and craftsmen to complete the remodel of our home. She made herself available for not only questions, but to make the unit available to contractors and deliveries, saving me huge amounts of travel and time! She kept us informed of every step of the proceedings, so that we felt very comfortable leaving what amounted to the entire project in her hands. Because of Kathleen, I was able to concentrate on getting settled in a new city, without having to worry about leaving the old one. We cannot thank Kathleen enough for all the work she put in, and would not hesitate for an instant to recommend her highly to anyone looking for a capable, thorough, and detail oriented broker. We were lucky to have her!”
