I needed to write this review because Todd and Kim helped my sister and me through easily the most stressful situations of our adult lives, and that is NOT an exaggeration. This may be a TLDR post, but to fully appreciate the work they put in I need to include details.
We had never sold a house, let alone under such circumstances. Let me set the story line. My parents are separated but my mother lived in a family owned house in the Sunset for 10+ years and is a mid-level hoarder. My father hit a bump in the road financially and could no longer afford payments on the home. My father has not necessarily spoken to or seen my mother within the last 5 yrs, my sister and I have acted as mediators, and my mother has severe mood swings due to a stroke she suffered years back. The house had upwards of $30k in pests, roof repair, and general contractor issues. It took 4 truckloads to the dump to clear all the stuff out of the house and garage. Needless to say, our family relationship is strained and my sister and I were given an urgent task: Sell my mother’s junk-filled house in October/ November with only 2 weeks’ notice. Two weeks. The housing market was losing strength, we were going into the holidays and there were the most houses on the market that month than there had been in the past 4 yrs within our given neighborhood.
My sister (who lives in Seattle) and I did not even know where to start. Todd was referred by an agent in Seattle whom my sister recently purchased a home from. She and I needed someone who would keep my family on track and understand the sensitivity of the relationship between my father and mother. Todd and Kim did not disappoint.
Their strengths are this: There was not a single moment where I felt that they did not know what they were doing or what next steps were since they were always prepared. If we had questions, they had answers, and very thorough ones. They gave guidance and pushed us forward through timelines when we were lost and kept our family on task and on track for our requested deadline.
Their familiarity with the neighborhood and their network in the SF real estate world saved our sale. There is no doubt in my mind about this. On our offer review date, we did not have good offers. However, in the last minute an agent who they had worked with for many years happened to have a client who was ready for another project. We closed at only 10k below our “ideal” selling price, and all cash. Had we gone with any other agent without the breadth of network that they did, we would have been left out in the cold.
I still can’t believe that we got through those months. It all seems like a blur now. Through hell or high water, if I EVER sell a property or think of purchasing one in SF, there is absolutely no-way I would deal with anyone else other than Todd and Kim. My sis and I can’t thank you two enough. You guys are honest-to-god saviors. THANK YOU!!
