“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 same great results”

"Kathy was an invaluable part of our home 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."

"Hey Kathy, just wanted to let you know we're moving in on Saturday! We are in love with the house, and I just can't believe it's ours.
I want to thank you again for helping us get it. There is no way it would have happened without you."
"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 then 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."

"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.”
“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 the exceptional marketing and sales strategy of Kathy.”
“We want to thank you for everything that you have done to make buying our 1st home so pleasant. You are so great to work with and we appreciate everything…the savvy, the experience, the knowledge…”
“Thanks for explaining terms, translating real estate lingo into English, reading the fine print, and calling me when I needed to be somewhere to see something or sign something. Your professionalism, ethical standards, and knowledge are first class and I know I made the best deal possible with your guidance. You can be sure when I am ready to sell (or buy something else) I will not consider going anywhere else for advice.”
”Kathy was very helpful, knowledgeable, patient and pleasant. She knows the market, she learned to know what I wanted, she expressed her opinions, which I welcomed, but knew how not to be pushy and allow me to make the final call. She kept in frequent contact with me and was frequently able to anticipate my needs. She was able and willing to attend to all the little details.”
“Over the years I have had five other real estate agents that I have bought and sold houses with and Kathy was BY FAR the very best one.”
