We hired Richard and Kirsten from a 1000 miles away to sell our mother's home and are so happy we did. They were professional, extremely experienced, data driven and personable! They handled pesky details that would have stalled less experienced agents, making the process smooth and painless for us. They were patient listeners with good advice when we got nervous during COVID hiccups. We would give them 6 stars if we could!by Cat C and Valerie V
I needed a realtor to represent me because I knew that purchasing a home from a family member had the potential to become extremely muddled. I spent a considerable amount of time reading realtor reviews, but Kirsten and Richard Powell stood out from the crowd. Within moments of explaining the family dynamics, I felt completely at ease. They were so responsive, listened patiently, explain the process and assured me they would do everything in their power to be sure the transaction goes smoothly. There was some rough waters to navigate and it was handled with such ease and simplicity, and class! Kirsten and Richard were always available to answer my questions, in fact, they had the answers before I even had questions! I knew exactly what was going on at all times. Throughout the process they made me feel like I was their only client. Everyone says that buying a home is one of the most stressful times in one's life. This was the EASIEST process to go through. The efficiency, professionalism, knowledge, honest and hard work ethic is to be respected and admired. When the need arises again, I will be calling Kirsten and Richard!by Karen S, Thousand Oaks
Richard and Kirsten are an amazing team who work tirelessly to make things easy for their clients. We first bought a house with them in 2016. And then again in 2020, we sold and bought with them. We would not go anywhere else when it comes to selling or buying a house. They are extremely professional, very reliable, and detail oriented. They made the two transactions so easy for us. They were always available for questions and phone calls. We appreciate their dedication to their clients who they treat as good friends. Richard and Kirsten are always available for any questions/any time even after closing the deal! We would highly recommend them to family and friends. You can tell that they take great pride in their work. They are knowledgeable and take the stress out of buying/selling a house. Thank you both for always having a positive attitude and getting us this beautiful house!!by Kriti M, Moorpark CA
We can't possibly thank Richard and Kirsten enough for their outstanding work! When I first met Kirsten back in March of 2019, at one of her open houses, our short conversation made me feel that her goal from the very beginning was to establish trust between us. I came home that day and told my husband that when we are ready, I would choose to work with her. Six months later, we reached out to her again and she and Richard found the perfect house for our family in just a few short weeks. Everything seems to have gone by so fast, and to say the process went smoothly is an understatement. The documentation came in and out, inspections got done, negotiations were made, and we didn't feel any struggle or stress. They were both on top of everything and constantly kept us informed! They are both tech savvy, and were always available for questions and advice thru text, email or phone. One of the best things about them is that they let us make our own decisions. They were there to guide us along with their years of experience, but we've never felt any pressure from either of them, and we never felt alone. They are both funny, very easy to work with, and are both incredibly knowledgeable. Richard was probably at the property every day on the first week after our offer got accepted to work with all the inspectors and has continued to revisit the property for various reasons right up until we closed! Kirsten is very thorough with all the documentation that we needed to sign and steps we needed to take. She gave us all the info we needed from the first step to the last! We were nervous and excited, but they both made the entire process of purchasing our first home one of the best experiences we've had! We wish them all the best as they both deserve it!by Carmela and Kerry, Simi Valley CA
Mortgage standards are much more rigid than they were in the early 2000’s.
2021 is NOT 2008.
