Kris is the strongest Realtor I have worked with in nineteen real estate transactions! She is extraordinarily competent, professional, and cheerful. She listened carefully to our wish list and has knowledge and context on all towns and neighborhoods. We were working from the East Coast, so Kris shouldered much of our search through many months in a difficult market for buyers, sending video walk-throughs and suggesting homes before they were officially listed. She was patient and positive as we ... successfully closed on the very best home for our family. She took great care in reading all of the disclosure packets we considered and has experience with many issues we encountered. As we moved to and through closing, her top-notch service continued with room measurements, introductions to great service providers, and even ideas for beautiful draperies. You want Kris at your side as you navigate Marin's real estate markets!
Kris Klein did a superb job as my realtor on my house sale in April. I've never sold a house before, and was amazed and frankly overwhelmed by how much work is involved. Kris made it a relative breeze, from start to finish. She outlined all the steps, strategized the listing price, and advised me on the optimal window of time to go on the market, which at that point was a dizzying 4 weeks away. Then she really went into high gear to get the house ready, supervising contractors and cleaning crews, handling broken windows, advising on and then arranging for a whole slew of pre-listing inspections, explaining the disclosure process and all the seller forms to be completed, keeping my neighbors informed, and getting up to speed on the CC&Rs for the neighborhood plus various title issues. I was a largely out-of-town seller at this point, and Kris was available 24/7 to rush over to the house on a moment's notice, like when, during the recent storms, she decided on her own to check on the house and discovered some leaks, which were thankfully fixable in time for the subsequent rains. I can't imagine trying to go through that process again without Kris.
When my family and I were relocating to the Bay Area from the East Coast, a mutual friend put us in touch with Kris. From our first phone conversation, Kris seemed to understand exactly what we were looking for--she found us an amazing rental property in a matter of days in a town that, as she had predicted, was perfectly suited for us. Once we decided that we were ready to purchase a home, Kris helped us navigate our town's very complex and competitive housing market. She was incredibly responsive and available for us when we wanted to look at houses, and her deep knowledge of the town's neighborhoods and their subtleties made us realize very quickly that we were in excellent hands. Her judgement is impeccable and her guidance reassuring. Ultimately, she helped us negotiate a great price on our purchase and undoubtedly saved us money in the process. Through closing, she worked tirelessly on our behalf in an organized and efficient--but never pushy--way. I can't recommend Kris highly enough.
We had the good fortune of being introduced to Kris Klein when we began looking for a home in Marin. We were moving across the country, from New York, with our four children. From our first conversation, we knew we were dealing with a true professional. She listened to our wants and needs, and she asked us really insightful questions that helped streamline the overwhelming process of trying decide on a neighborhood. On our first house hunting visit, Kris met us in her car with bottles of water, maps, packets of information on the market and a meticulously planned agenda of houses for us to look at. Kris has deep knowledge of each neighborhood, the schools and all the nuances that certain locations offer. If someone we knew needed a home in Marin, there is no question who we would recommend to help with that process.
...what a great it experience it was to be represented by Kris in the purchase of our new home. In a very tough "sellers" market, Kris was a fantastic guide through the process, especially for us who are new to the area. She was very thorough during the entire process...and in the end she helped us negotiate a very good deal and we closed without any issues at all. It has been completely our pleasure to work with Kris. We look forward to recommending Kris many times in the future.
When my husband and I decided to help my daughter and her family of 5 find a home in Marin, the best part of the daunting experience was having Kris as our realtor. We needed to find a place where they could afford the mortgage and fit everyone in, a very difficult chore in Marin. Kris worked tirelessly and enthusiastically with all of us and became like part of the family. We still get together just because we miss her upbeat personality and her big smile It was so special to work with a professional, understanding person like Kris and keep my family close by!
When Kris helped us search for a house in San Rafael, there was not a whole lot on the market that fit what we needed, and she understood that. We looked at many houses over several weeks. She was patient, never pushy, and always had my family's best interests in mind. I would definitely work with Kris again, but won't have to because we found the perfect house!
With limited inventory and special requests as to floor plan, Kris was always so encouraging and patient. She pointed out ways to make it work, until we found the perfect house to fit our needs. She is definitely an exceptional realtor.
Thanks for all the help, patience, support, and incredible effort you undertook on our behalf. Throughout (the home search) you were always so positive and committed to finding us a solution. I can’t thank you strongly enough for all you have done for us.
