What Clients Are Saying

I wrote this testimonial because I felt that my story might help with others who are in a similar situation and felt the need for a
professional real estate agent. In addition, my experience with John S. Kim needed to be shared about how he had helped me and my family start anew.

I first heard of John Kim through a friend. Believe it or not, my friend was a real estate agent himself. I was introduced to John
because I was told he would "know more about this then I would." After the initial introductions with John, I immediately knew he would be my agent. I told John that I planned to sell my current home and move to an area where I would be able to give my own children an opportunity at a better school district. On top of a better school district, I wanted my children to be to be closer to their grandparents.

The timing was critical because my children were about to begin their education at the new school within a few months. While most real estate agents only focus on one specific housing market, John was very knowledgeable in not just his own real estate market but also within the surrounding areas as well.

As a family man himself, John was able to relate to my needs. John is very intelligent and has the necessary skill set to help me with my issues. His work experience and work ethic are unrivaled.

The selling of my house was an emotional undertaking. All of the memories associated with our house proved to be much more difficult than I had imagined. John was very sympathetic to these emotions and assured me that starting all over again can be a positive experience. John assisted me and my family in every way possible beyond his job title as a real estate agent. He provided comfort and held our hands though this process together.

In short: John became the friend we all wish we had in our lives. After John sold our house, my family and I moved into a rental house that was near my children’s school. After living there for several months, I recontacted John and I told him that I wanted to purchase a home and become a home owner again...with a twist.

I wanted a house but not just within the city limits, but also within this specific school zone so the children can continue going to the same school without interruption. John worked tirelessly until we found a house...within the city limits AND within the same school zone.

I was in awe.

In what seemed like a short time frame, the house was ours. The house that I currently live in with my family was all because of the hard work and steadfast dedication from John. The sellers were extremely difficult to work with but John hid this ugliness from me so that I would have a perfect buying experience.

Every loan option John presented to me were designed to fit my lifestyle with my family in mind. It was as if John had custom
prepared every step of the process all the way to receiving the keys to the house with minimal effort from me.

My family and I owe a great deal of gratitude to John. He helped us start anew and gave us the ability to set our roots at a place we can now call our forever home.

As a retired Police Detective, I understand how things need to be done efficiently and effectively. John proved more than that. John was very accurate with his paperwork, the timing to submit those documents was impeccable, his knowledge of the housing markets were flawless and his deep understanding of contract negotiations was phenomenal. From crossing the T's to dotting the I's, John paid attention to every little detail throughout the process.

I've always wondered about John's email signature but now, I have no doubt that John Kim is my "Personal Lifetime Real Estate & Mortgage Consultant."

He should be yours, too.

Sincerely
Stan Szeto

The only real estate friend you'll ever want and need.

John and I have worked together on various real estate, commercial and technical projects throughout the ten years we have known each other. It goes without saying that he is my go-to source for all things related to real estate, but he is also the most highly organized and efficient managers one can ask for when taking on large and complicated projects that achieves results. To this day, I count on John to manage all of my real estate needs, and trust his advice explicitly; I recommend John Kim for Bay Area real estate issues without reservation.
