Your house is one of your most important financial investments, but more importantly where you live everyday. Buying or selling your house is a process that should be positive and rewarding. I'm excited about working with you and will help you find a house that's just right for you. My value to you is in negotiating the best price for you and in making sure you never leave any money on the table. My intention is to provide each client with exceptional service, and to develop meaningful, long-term relationships with the people I serve. Real estate services are so much more than simply helping you buy or sell a piece of property. It's making sure your overall experience is handled well and successful.
I have experience in representing both Sellers and Buyers. I partner with my Sellers to present their home at its best, price it right and market it attractively. I prequalify prospective Buyers, and negotiate the best outcome for my clients. I work with my Buyers to find them their dream house, present the most powerful offer and project manage a complex transaction from day one to handing them their housekeys.
I have been awarded the Presidents Circle designation for 2005. I now ranked in the top 7% of Coldwell Banker nationally.
A California Native, I have always lived in the Bay Area. I became interested in becoming a Realtor during the process of purchasing my first home. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, skiing, hiking, motorcycle riding, martial arts, ceramics and reading. My community involvement includes participating in Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, Rebuilding Together and Coldwell Banker's Donate-A-Phone program.
"Kimiko was the soul of patience even though my mood was swinging like Foucault's Pendulum during the stressful househunting process. She was flexible and able to meet the limited availability I had. She was very pleasant to work with." Megan L.
"We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all of your assistance with buying our new house and referring us to local contractors. Your patience, professionalism and friendliness made our transition into our new California life and neighborhood a much less stressful experience. Thank you for listening to our concerns and desires for neighborhoods and houses, and offering your input. It was nice to look at houses that we were genuinely interested in viewing in neighborhoods we wanted to live in". John & Suzanne M.
Education & Goals
I am currently enrolled in the Dominican University to receive a degree in Eco Dwellings. It is a passion and a goal of mine to help create a world where people thrive in buildings and communities sustained by a healthy connection between the natural and built environment. I want to help connect consumers and building professionals with the tools and technical expertise they need to build quality green buildings. Whether you are building from the ground up or remodeling a kitchen, I want to help enhance the well-being of occupants, and to minimize negative impacts on the community and the natural environment. Go Green!
