We were lucky enough to be connected with David and Kira in May 2014. We had just finished traveling for the holidays, moving to Marin while our condo in San Francisco was on the market - all while caring for our first kid. We met with them and weren't quite ready to jump into buying; we were exhausted from the moving and sale process. That plan went out the window fast... We told them what we wanted: schools, schools, schools, a place we could make changes to over time, and a great community. The following week they introduced us to San Anselmo. They knew exactly what we wanted because the first place they showed us was perfect. They knew we liked it but were also honest about what we'd need to offer in order to get into it and also about the fact that places like the one we ended up getting don't come up that often. (We actually ended up winning the bidding war and got the home). Da…

They knew we liked it but were also honest about what we'd need to offer in order to get into it and also about the fact that places like the one we ended up getting don't come up that often. (We actually ended up winning the bidding war and got the home). David and Kira really work well together. David is a phenomenal resource at pointing out areas of concern when buying and talking with the inspector; it's like having your own home inspector on the payroll. And Kira knows everything about schools. They showed us a bunch of neighborhoods and she knew every school our kid would attend if that were the neighborhood we chose. The best part about working with them was that they gave us their honest opinion on everything. If it was a great house that they thought would fit our needs, they'd say so and tell us we should really consider it. At the same time, they'd tell us if they didn't like the house and why even if we already expressed a strong interest. I never felt like I was being pushed to make an offer so they could get a quick sale. On the contrary, I truly felt they were working in my best interest. The most stressful part of the process was when we didn't follow their advice. David and Kira recommended using Jeff Bjork at the First Republic as our lender. We went with a mortgage bank instead and it was a nightmare. Despite having great credit, two great jobs, and more than 20% down, our lender was a nightmare even after it gave us the okay to remove the loan contingency. Do yourself a favor - listen to David and Kira and use Jeff Bjork as your lender. If you're relocating to Marin County or the North Bay, you shouldn't consider anyone else. Just do everything David and Kira say and everything will work out.

Yelp, you've come through yet again. I'm not one to generally write reviews, but Kira and David (and Yelp) absolutely deserve some recognition here. As first-time home buyers, we knew little to nothing about the home buying process but knew we wanted to buy a home in Marin and knew the excellence of Yelp reviewers. It did seem a little strange at the time to choose the agent who assists you with the largest purchase of your life based on a website (and yes we heard such comments from our family and friends); but in the end, we couldn't be happier with our new home and none of it would have been possible without the knowledge, professionalism, patience, and attention to detail of David and Kira. All the other reviews hit the nail on the head again and again with the quality of experience we had as well (Other than the one nutjob review calling them "unethical" - nothing could be further…

Being happy first-time home buyers we don't have any other agents to compare against but here's why we thought they were great and would use them again if we ever bought another home in Marin: - They know the Marin area extremely well - They have lots of experience and in particular lots of experience with buyers - They know and have good relationships with the other agents in Marin - They know the whole home buying process and are great at explaining it to people who don't - They have a network of people you can rely upon (or choose not to) throughout the purchase process (escrow, title, financing, inspection, repair, remodeling, etc.) And above all they are extremely honest, decent, hardworking people who at the same time are enjoyable to deal with.

Fantastic service from start to finish! When we first interviewed Kira and David we got the feeling they would be the perfect people to help us find our first home. Early on they were very patient as they guided us through local neighborhoods and showed us a personalized range of properties each weekend to help define what was most important to us. They were also very encouraging as we toured houses in a tough market, seemingly not able to find anything we wanted. Throughout their estimates of property sale prices were spot on and they were also on hand to give us a reality check when our expectations were unrealistic.Their local connections and reputation were a huge extra advantage, helping us get an early viewing of a perfect house, right before we took a trip to Kenya.

They were then able to gently guide us through the bidding process while we were still in Kenya and helped us deliver a winning bid. They went the extra mile, returning to take measurements, talking to planning on our behalf and checking out several minor concerns we had. Our experience in finalizing the house was similarly great and they again went the extra mile, setting up meetings with the old owners and local contractors to help make sure we had everything ready to move seamlessly once we closed on the property. We really can’t say enough good things about this awesome Realtor® who went the extra mile to help us find our first home. We would highly recommend them to anyone!

We were lucky enough to meet David and Kira when searching for a home in Marin county. Though we lived in l.A. And it was hard to keep up with our changing needs, they were great about providing digital updates including visits and iPhone videos on any house we expressed interest in. They're a pleasure to hang out with and we appreciated their honesty (Since they look out for the client and not the deal). More than once, one of us tried to look past a house's problems or flaws out of a desire to finally just land somewhere - only to be talked down by d and k, who would remind us the lot wasn't the size we wanted or the work was likely more than we wanted to take on. When we finally found the house we wound up purchasing outside of their "Usual" coverage area (Sebastopol), we reached out to them and asked them to negotiate the deal for us anyway because we trusted them and guessed they wo…

When we finally found the house we wound up purchasing outside of their "Usual" coverage area (Sebastopol), we reached out to them and asked them to negotiate the deal for us anyway because we trusted them and guessed they would negotiate a good deal for us. They did - we got 8%+ off the asking price. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a new home.
