Client Testimonials (Additional testimonials available upon request)

Dr. James Ramenofsky and Mrs. Lauren Ramenofsky 

"Kate Woods has sold three properties for us in the past six months. She has done all that we could have asked for and then some. Her services have included providing advice to have the property in optimal condition for selling, diligently researching the market to recommend realistic and proper pricing, confirming her recommendations with numerous colleagues, and rapidly finding a buyer willing to pay the asking price or better.  All three properties combined spent no more than six weeks on the market before a sales offer was made.  

Once the properties were in escrow, Kate tracked every detail of the transaction to make sure that any issues were promptly evaluated and solved. She is incredibly attentive to details, making sure there were no unresolved issues while the properties were under contract in escrow. She helped to conclude the sales either on time or ahead of time. There is no other agent we have ever worked with who could have delivered such a consistently high level of service. For anyone who is considering a real estate transaction, we can highly recommend they higher Kate Woods to help in the process."

Mr. Scott Bondurant and Mrs. Susan Bondurant 

"I have used Kate Woods as our real estate agent for renting the last 13 years, as well as selling and buying property in the La Jolla Shores area. She is extremely professional, dedicated and capable in helping us rent, sell and buy. She consistently goes the extra mile to make sure everything is in order and very little is left to chance. The recent transaction she handled was quite complex, as it involved a potential reverse 1031 tax-deferred exchange. She was aware of the issues and put us in touch with experts that were both knowledgeable and reasonably priced. She also got us in touch with an architect/builder that helped us assess several technical issues in both the house we were selling and buying. Finally, she handled both buying and selling negotiations with insight and proactive style that yielded good results for us.  I highly recommend Kate for any selling/buying/renting needs in the La Jolla area." 

Mr. Mark Laska and Mrs. Yael Laska 

"When we decided to purchase a home, we enlisted Kate's help and expertise in the La Jolla market to identify suitable properties. Although Kate had known us for more than two years, she took time to understand our family, needs, budget, and our preferences for the type of house, location and property. Kate never assumed that she knew what would be best for us, and never pushed us to see property for its own sake. She always had our best interest at heart. All our positive feelings toward Kate were confirmed when she told us about a home that is the one we ultimately purchased. It was an off-market property that she knew about because she knew the Seller. It was clear that because of her reputation and experience, we were about to purchase our dream home. The financing was tricky, there were many moving parts to the deal, but she handled it all with intelligence, grace and aplomb. We are grateful for Kate's guidance and expertise and would recommend her without reservation."
