As a Bay Area native growing up in Walnut Creek, Kevin was exposed to the Real Estate industry
from a young age. He grew up in a family of Real Estate agents, commercial investors and
property managers. This would inevitably jumpstart his career as a successful Real Estate agent
in the greater Bay Area.
After earning a B.A. in Business Entrepreneurship with an emphasis in Marketing, Kevin decided to follow the family path. In early 2012 he began his career in the world of residential and commercial appraisals. Naturally, this experience provided a valuable foundation for a career as an agent, as he quickly learned how to analyze and evaluate real property. For Kevin, being able to provide an accurate market value is a critical tool for his clients. By the end of 2012 Kevin was a licensed Real Estate agent, selling and appraising property in San Francisco. By fully immersing himself in the industry, Kevin quickly realized was his true passion was servicing buyers and sellers to the best of his ability. The driving principle was to build lasting relationships, far beyond the real estate transaction.
Over the years, Kevin has demonstrated the importance of honesty, integrity and ethics in his business. His aim is to provide the necessary resources and information for his clients to make educated decisions. Using the industry-leading technology platform provided by Compass, Kevin understands the often tedious process of navigating Real Estate transactions and will always spearhead the experience with his clients’ best interest in mind.
“Kevin Merlander is an exceptional real estate agent and a great person. He is truly there for his clients and will drop everything to make sure that they are his number 1 priority. Kevin assisted us on our first home purchase and even in the crazy San Francisco market that we were in, Kevin told us from the beginning that he would get us into the home of our dreams. A few short weeks after finding that home of our dreams in the city, Kevin worked around the clock to make sure that we had the best opportunity to land it, which in if you haven’t already guessed we did! If you are thinking of using Kevin Merlander, the Kevins, and Zephyr in your home search/purchase/or sale, please do so as you will not be disappointed. They will go above and beyond to make so sure you end up in the home you always dreamt of and get the best price in the market.” -Chad Rogers
“Kevin Merlander is a hard worker, very responsive, a good problem solver and has great energy and positivity. He helped make the purchase and the sale of a condo in Cole Valley go smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with him.” -Karen Gilhuly
“I had a great experience working with the Kevins. They were able to get me into a property larger than I had hoped for, at a very competitive price in San Francisco. Kevin M went above and beyond, in addition to making sure everything in the sale process went smoothly, he dealt with an incredibly difficult seller. The seller's agent was nearly absent throughout the process. Kevin continued to deal with the seller on my behalf long after closing through many ups and downs. The Kevins will take excellent care of you, I'll be recommending them to any friends looking to buy” -Beth Dean
