"...I have bought and sold three times in 6 years and have never experienced service equal to that of Kat's. She has expertise and knowledge that is exemplary. A true pleasure!" Jane Williams
"At every step of the process, Kat was exceedingly professional, providing good counsel and encouragements throughout the highly challenging process of sale and purchase. An outstanding advocate in negotiations-helping us get a higher price on our sale, even when we were ready to settle, and a lower price on our purchase when we were ready to buy. She kept her cool even when a horrible rainstorm upended out delicate dance of move out-and-in all in one day. We highly recommend Kat and will certainly call her again when we are ready to move next." Stefan & Ashley Simmons
"I could not be happier or more satisfied with Kat's dedication, expertise, and respectful guidance. Every prediction or assessment she made turned out to be true, and she cheerfully and patiently provided me with every available resource and tool to assist me in my first home purchase. (She even drove my family members around to look at neighborhoods when they came to San Francisco East Bay on separate visit from me!) She is a consummate professional while still being warm and open, and inspired a high level of confidence in her from our first meeting. I am grateful to have had her on my side throughout this whole process." Kare Robinson
"...I lost count how many weekends, early mornings, afternoons and evenings you selflessly gave of your time, ear and genuine feedback. How many times does one run across someone within the context of business transactions that you hope to maintain contact in the future? Rarely do I connect with people in such a unique circumstance.
What made everything perfect in working with you as both our selling agent and buyer’s agent was your attention to detail, availability, patience, honest feedback and personality. Working with you makes a person want to hold a little secret--I have an unbelievable real estate agent but I can't give you the name because I may need them in the future. Of course, I will give your name and contact information freely--good people deserve to be recognized in life.
Frankly, I want to thank you for the time you took to listen, provide feedback, and listen some more as the process of finding a home became an experience, which could have been much more of a chore without your involvement. As time ticked along, you understood that finding a house wasn't what Sarah and I needed; we wanted to find a home that fit our makeup. We needed to find a home that not only could be filled with new furniture, but a place that would be filled with our friends' tales and experiences, good cheer, laughter, and periodic quiet solitude when necessary.
In this relaxed market, I still tell the story that our home sold in three days! We listened to what you believed needed to be done to get the old home ready for sale and acted without reservation. I still marvel that you found us our buyer in 72 hours after our house went on the market. With deep appreciation," Tim and Sarah Thompson
"Kat was responsible for selling my condominium and for helping me in finding my new condo. In a tough real estate market Kat, using her extensive marketing expertise, put together a comprehensive plan to get as many prospects in to see my condo. This included hosting a charity event in my condo and coordinating a feature article in Homes Magazine. Kat was instrumental in helping me prepare my condo so it would show extremely well. She also convinced me to price the condo properly to sell quickly. During this time, I had Kat search for my new condo, which we found after looking at quite a few properties. Kat was able to understand my wants and needs and worked very hard to find a place at my price range and quality. I highly recommend Kat as an agent with integrity beyond reproach and a desire to truly satisfy her clients in their search for property." David & Kim Taylor
Whoever heard of someone looking for a home for two years? Well that is how long it took for me to find my dream home and Kat understood, helpful and knowledgeable. She made the tedious process bearable. She never seemed to mind looking at endless properties or answering some of the simplest questions. I cannot thank Kat enough for her professionalism and patience. Valerie Smith
"Kat's commitment to service well exceeded anything I would have expected. Her pro-active style and almost immediate responses to my questions made me feel like I was her only client." Andreas
"When our neighbors recommended Kat Papadakis to us, we expected marketing savvy and seasoned professionalism. Kat gave us far more. She put in the extra effort and got us our asking price. Her design-sense, buyer and market knowledge, persistence and communication style were perfect and convinced us inveterate do-it-yourselfers that hiring a real estate pro like Kat was worth every penny." Steven and Mary Miller
"We really enjoyed working with Kat. She has an upbeat, positive personality that helped us feel comfortable through a stressful time, and was well-prepared from the moment we met to discuss working together. Kat always communicated with us-letting us know what she had planned and what we could expect-and her preparation helped us sell our condo faster than we expected & for a great price. We would definitely recommend her to friends and would work with her again!" Heidi & Steven Allen
"We were relocating from another state and needed to find a home fast. Luckily we were referred to Kat. She took the time to get to know us and really listened. She knew exactly what our family needed and found us the perfect house in a community that immediately felt like home. Kat is a pleasure to work with and we were right to trust her so completely." Mary and Chris Clark
"I had never heard of Kat Papadakis before the day I walked into Coldwell Banker. My daughter and I decided we wanted to purchase a home of our own; we were first time homebuyers. We tried one realtor, I was okay with her, but my daughter was not comfortable with her. So one day while on the internet, I saw a website for "Coldwell Banker Orinda". Since one of their offices was within walking distance from my job, I decided to walk down on my lunch. When I got there, Kat walked up to me and introduced herself; this was the start of our relationship. I sat down with her and right away she made me feel at ease. She explained in detail what to expect from a Realtor and what a Realtor expects from us.
Kat is truly dedicated to her trade; she went with us anywhere and everywhere to see whatever property we thought "might be it". She never flinched. There were times that we became totally discouraged and Kat would say to us, "I will tell you when to worry." It took us 5 months, but we finally found our dream home. My daughter and I can't sing Kat's praise enough. We are extremely pleased with the service we got from Kat. We had the positive experience of doing better than we expected. Because we hear these words all the time, I don't want to overuse them, but Kat is the consummate professional. She is a true professional to be recognized, respected, and recommended." Marsha Moore
