Testimonials

She was always responsive to phone calls, texts or email, and followed through with every commitment that she made. I would use her again as a seller or as a buyer!

Kim represented us as sellers of our home in Los Gatos. Kim came highly recommended and she absolutely lived up to (and exceeded) her great reviews! She was very well informed about the real estate market, in addition to providing a high level of personal service. From the first time we met, I felt like Kim was sincere, respectful of my ideas about getting the house ready and dedicated to doing the highest quality work for us. Our home was in need of some repair work as well as updating, and Kim coordinated this entire process. I usually like to be involved in every aspect of a big project, but was very busy at the time. However, I felt completely comfortable trusting Kim to go ahead and make all of the decisions related to getting the house ready. She knew what updates would make our house more appealing and had an overall plan in mind. The decisions that Kim made about updates inside the house and to the landscaping changed the house from showing the wear and tear of a home built in 1960, to a bright, stunning, modern home that was ready for people to move into! Kim was skillful and detail oriented while preparing our house to be sold, managing all of the inspections, holding Open Houses and negotiating with buyers who made offers. She was energetic, hardworking and positive throughout the entire process. Kim sold our house within a few days, at over the asking price! In addition to her excellent professional real estate skills, Kim is genuine and caring. She was always responsive to phone calls, texts or email, and followed through with every commitment that she made. I would use her again as a seller or as a buyer!

There's no-one I'd rather recommend with more enthusiasm than Kim Richman!

Kim and I have been close friends for a while. One Saturday, for fun, I went to see an open house in an area I liked. Then I called her to look at it with me. Within the next two months, we have negotiated an offer, performed extra detailed inspections, got my house ready for sale, closed on my house and closed on the new house. On the day my new house became mine, the contractors, that Kim recommended, started to work. She is an amazing researcher, negotiator and has a vision of a designer. She has a team that respects her and works for her gladly, so everything moves with speed and precision. And through glitches or not, she does it all with a huge smile on her face. There's no-one I'd rather recommend with more enthusiasm than Kim Richman.

Kim Rocks!

There was no decision required when my wife and I went to sell our house. Kim is the consummate professional. She is amazing in her ability to get stuff done. She has a deep understanding of the negotiation process in our market and she was able to get a great price for our house. If you are looking for help in selling or buying a house it would be hard to find a better realtor. 

Kim rocks!

Kim is a Fighter!

Kim is a fighter! She fought so hard for a family she hardly knew. In the end, my family could not be happier with our home. We never would of even thought this could be a reality. Kim was very helpful with every step of the process. She’s quick to respond to questions and always has your best interests at heart. I’m proud to now call her a forever friend.

With endless energy, great advice, and the right results every time for us, we can't recommend Kim enough!!

We met Kim over 20 years ago - and she helped us find the perfect first home for us in Saratoga. The connection was good - and she always stayed in touch - so when it came time to move within Saratoga to another property, we naturally turned to Kim to broker the right deal for us on the home we selected. 

We razed the old home and built a new one on the property - asking Kim's advice along the way - to ensure we were designing and building a home that would sell in a future market here in Saratoga. 

We recently decided to retire and move east. We did not even think of any else but Kim to represent us. She did a PHENOMENAL job in recommending what we needed to do in order to put the house on the market - secured a great photographer/videographer, and marketed our home to perfection. 

While homes in our price range typically take from 6 months to a year to sell, we had our home sold in literally days!! 

With endless energy, great advice, and the right results every time for us, we can't recommend Kim enough!!

I would wholeheartedly recommend Kim to anyone looking for an awesome realtor!

Kim came as a referral and referrals are usually best. That proved true in this case also as Kim went far beyond and above her role of simply a realtor, to get our house prepped for sale and sold. In addition to being very wise and knowledgeable in her area of expertise, Kim also had many necessary contacts available right away: contractors, inspectors and other skilled individuals who assisted her/us with this house sale. 

I would wholeheartedly recommend Kim to anyone looking for an awesome realtor!

She is truly a seasoned professional...

It was an absolute pleasure working with Kim Richman and her team! Kim covered every detail of the sale of my home from excellent marketing to preparing it to stand out for showings. She is truly a seasoned professional with a vast knowledge base and excellent instincts. I could not have picked a better person to sell my home. Thank you, Kim!

She is absolutely the best agent we have ever worked with...

My husband and I always recommend Kim Richman every chance we get. She is absolutely the best agent we have ever worked with. She is a unique combination of knowledge and personality. Her hard work and guidance was the reason our offer on the purchase of our new home was excepted over all the others. Her years of experience should give anyone confidence in her technical skills and the relationships she has built within the industry made the sale of our house seamless.

We will be using her again.

Her follow through was meticulous!

It was a sincere pleasure working with Kim Richman! Along with being incredibly hard working and dedicated, her follow through was meticulous! My husband and I are not her easy clients. We were looking for an investment property in a prime location with a great price tag. We have bought, built, renovated and sold many homes in Los Gatos and surrounding areas and have worked with several other realtors in the past. The difference we found in Kim was in her strategic yet very honest approach! She helped us negotiate and land exactly what we wanted at the right price. She is compassionate yet strong! I should mention we had a particularly difficult close situation. Kim helped tie every last loose end until we inspected, closed and celebrated!

We highly recommend Kim Richman and hold her close to our hearts!

She was very understanding and compassionate...

Kim is very dedicated to her job. She was always there for me and was able to handle any situation that arose. She was very understanding and compassionate for me during this trying time. Kim made my task easy by always being available to answer all of my questions and concerns. She constantly kept me informed on the daily status of the sale of the house. I appreciated her sincerity and trustworthiness as she guided me through the sale of my sister's house.

I would highly recommend Kim Richman for your realtor needs.

We got the house of our dreams!

Kim & her team did a good job of showing us the houses on the market that might meet our needs. Kim did a great job of guiding us through the bidding process (showing us comp's, explaining bidding strategies, etc.), and we got the house of our dreams!

Kim is an excellent strategist...

We are so grateful to have Kim as our realtor! Buying a home in the Bay Area is definitely a stressful situation, but Kim and her team, including buyer specialist Eileen, helped us make it manageable. As first time home buyers, we needed support, which Kim and Eileen provided to us at all times. Kim is extremely knowledgeable about the area, the current market, of availabilities, and is an excellent strategist. We feel she and her team went above and beyond in all areas of the process. We absolutely recommend Kim and her team and are beyond grateful that she helped us find and purchase our first home!

We are extremely satisfied with Kim!

Kim was instrumental in negotiating the purchase of our first home. We were referred to Kim by a friend and from the first phone call, Kim exhibited a warmth, professionalism, and attention to detail that we grew to know as her signature style. As this was our first home purchase, Kim advised us on numerous points. She was patient, thoroughly explained each step, and was always available when we needed her. We relied on her qualified network to help us accelerate the closing process. We are extremely satisfied with Kim and her team.

I am impressed with her professionalism...

We met Kim twelve years ago. She helped us search for our first home but due to changes in our life, we did not finalize the offer. Several years later we were ready again and this time we were able to find our first home which we loved! Jump to nine years later and we were fortunate to be able to upgrade. Yes, we knew we'd call Kim! I am impressed with her professionalism and the need to look into all details. She helped us scope things out, has the best inspectors, and helped us make many decision. She follows up with us at least a few times a year and has done so continually since we bought our first home.

She was there every step of the way...

To say that Kim did a great job in assisting my wife and me in selling our current home and purchasing our new home would be an understatement. She was there every step of the way to answer our myriad of questions and helped us navigate all of the challenges of buying a home in Silicon Valley. Kim remained patient the entire time and really helped advise us on what would be best for us as individuals. Never once did we feel she was pushing something on us or simply trying to make a sale. Instead, it was about finding the perfect solution and the entire time it felt like we were working with a friend, confidant, and advisor who had our best interest at heart. 

It was Kim's professionalism and local connections that finally landed us our dream house. We were up against 5 other offers, cash offers, and over asking. I truly feel the determining factor was Kim's relationship with the other agents and the confidence she built around our entire "package". Without her, we would have never made it happen. In the end, we not only purchased the perfect house, but we gained a friend.

She always has our best interest in mind...

We've used Kim twice now to buy/sell homes and have been extremely pleased with her attention to detail and thorough knowledge of the market. She always has our best interest in mind and has a great knack for anticipating issues and presenting recommendations. She is excellent at taking the stress out of buying/selling a home. We've been very fortunate to have Kim help us and would certainly use here again.

She is expert at understanding the market dynamics...

Kim Richman is by far the most outstanding real estate professional I’ve worked with in the 30+ years I’ve bought and sold property in the Bay Area. 

Over the course of the last 5 years, Kim has represented me in the selling of both my primary residence and an investment property. Both transactions were complex and involved significant work to improve the properties. Kim and her team were amazing at managing the entire process. 

She is expert at understanding the market dynamics to find the optimal listing price. She has excellent judgment in assessing the improvements necessary to minimize days on the market and to optimize interest from buyers. Her project management and organizational skills are the best I’ve seen in my experience in real estate. She is skilled at negotiation and her follow through is excellent. 

Professional, skilled, high integrity and competent are words that come to mind when I think of Kim. She is also a fun and pleasant person to work with!

The first person we thought to call was Kim...

When we made the decision to sell our home, the first person we thought to call was Kim. She is professional, knowledgeable and well experienced. She knows the market inside and out. Her guidance and advice throughout the entire process were invaluable in preparing, staging and getting our house ready to show. She made sure we were well advertised with beautiful marketing materials. And when we received multiple offers over asking price, she did her due diligence in researching each offer so that we could make the best decision for our family. We appreciate all her hard work and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Kim did a spectacular job for us!

She knew going into the process that we were hoping to work on a very short timeline. Within days of our initial meeting, repairs & improvements were being made to our home. Kim was diligent about coordinating the timing of work & inspections & holding the contractors accountable to their agreed upon schedules. While we were impressed with Kim’s property preparation skills it was the negotiation period where her expertise proved invaluable. Kim juggled multiple offers and presented us with a deal that included everything we were hoping for with a purchase price well over asking. We cannot recommend Kim Richman highly enough!

We have known Kim for over 10 years. She sold us, our wonderful home in Willow Glen, that we enjoyed living in for 10+years. When it came time to sell our home in Willow Glen the only realtor we could think of that would treat the selling process professionally and get us a fair price was Kim! She did a wonderful job at recommending changes and helping us to navigate thru the process of preparing our house for the market. Because of her suggestions, we were able to get a qualified buyer so we could get top dollar for our lovely home in Willow Glen. 

It was a pleasure to work with Kim and her team.
