“Kevin was excellent. As first-time home buyers, he helped us navigate the tricky waters of SF real estate and explained everything we had questions about. He was extremely knowledgeable and a fantastic negotiator.”
Cara H.

“Working with Kevin to find our home in San Francisco was a great experience, he helped set our expectations regarding prices, construction quality, and a few earthquake topics. He was able to get into the city on a moment’s notice and we ended up purchasing the first house we saw. Kevin helped us tremendously with the negotiations, ensuring we were asking the right questions, and setting up inspections to land a great deal for us in a challenging market. Having worked with many real estate agents before, Kevin has raised the bar beyond what we ever expected. We highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to purchase a home.”

“Kevin Kearney provided my husband and I exceptional service, outstanding advice and much needed support and guidance during our recent home purchase. As first-time home buyers new to the San Francisco market, we had lots of questions during every step of the process. From the beginning, it was clear that Kevin was truly our advocate and that he was invested in finding us a home that would match our preferences and price range. He provided professional guidance and advice while empowering my husband and I to ask questions and be honest about our opinion of each home we viewed.

Kevin was there for us at each step, from making an offer right down to handing us the keys to our first home. We are truly grateful for his service to us. We would absolutely recommend Kevin to anyone buying or selling a home.”
Katelin H.

“Kevin is a consummate professional that took the stressful, paperwork-riddled process of buying real estate, and made it really enjoyable.

Kevin’s the complete opposite of the pushy realtor stereotype, and was really knowledgable and helpful throughout the process. Whenever I had a question, he had in-depth answers at hand, or researched the answer within a day.

I was also really delighted to find out that behind his polite, thoughtful personality was a really top-notch negotiator — he got me a way better deal than I’d thought possible.”
Christian N.

“Our experience with Kevin was top notch – he is a true professional. We cannot say enough about our appreciation and heartfelt thanks. He was a source of patient invaluable advice from the moment we met him when we were in the market for our first house together, throughout our lengthy remodel and then helped us prepare and sell our house.

Here are a few things he did:

  • Helped negotiate a great price when we bought our first home and the budget was tight
  • Met with us from time to time over the years to discuss upgrades – what should and should not be done based on our goals and budget
  • Took care of all the details of getting our home on the market while we were on our way to Boston with our kids. Cleaning, staging, photos, etc.
  • Marketed our home in a professional way that generated multiple offers and negotiated the highest possible price for us in the market – exceeding our expectations.

We highly recommend Kevin and his team of professionals to take great care of you and your family throughout the process.”

“Kevin Kearney with Vanguard is an amazing real estate agent. Knowledgeable about the market, smart with negotiation, kind & patient no matter how much I bug him (which is often), super sound advice, and he knows how to get the deal done.
What I appreciate most is that he is able to concentrate on me and my real estate needs. I suppose he may be juggling other clients, but I always feel his focus on me and not “them” (unlike other agents). Love that quality about him.Highly recommend Kevin for any sale or purchase in Marin!”
Terrie G.

“My husband and I recently bought our first home, thanks to Kevin’s great work. We highly recommend Kevin, not just because of his thorough understanding of San Francisco real estate, but also because of his commitment to finding his clients the perfect home for a great price.

We had a great time working with Kevin, and he helped us feel very prepared to buy our home and confident that we were getting a great price. Kevin was always careful to not make our decisions for us, and we never felt pushed or hurried. Instead, Kevin just gave us very useful advice, and was always willing to do more work in order to provide us the information we needed. Because Kevin knows the market so well, and fosters relationships with other Realtors, he was very talented at guiding us to make a successful offer. Kevin also gave very useful recommendations for any other home-related support we could want, ranging from mortgage brokers to contractors.

We highly recommend Kevin to anyone interested in buying in SF, and based on our experience we also know he is an ideal Realtor for first-time buyers because he takes the time to explain anything and everything, and does a great job providing the background and laying out the steps needed to successfully buy a house.”

Testimonial3 “I was introduced to Kevin through our mutual involvement in Hands On Bay Area (a local non-profit), and quickly learned that he is a genuine, caring, smart person who has the utmost integrity. These are traits that help regardless of your career, but are even more critical in the world of real estate. So, when it came time to sell my condo there was no doubt that Kevin was the right choice to guide me through the process.Kevin managed all aspects of the process, going above and beyond since I’m no longer in the Bay Area. He took care of the small but critical issues that local owners normally have to do themselves. He also negotiated the best price with the most qualified buyer and got the sale closed in time for me to buy a new home 1 week later!I highly recommend Kevin and am confident you’ll find he’ll provide the same level of attention to your purchase or sale as he did with my sale.”

Testimonial1 “It has been said that success comes from who you know and not what you know. You are an exception to the rule. Not only do you know the business but are a well-respected professional; because of your reputation in the business we got the deal. I cannot thank you enough for not only taking such good care with this transaction but always looking out for my best interest as if I was family.”
Heather P.

Testimonial6 “Kevin and Brendon were wonderful to work with. Their guidance was very helpful to us in our search for our new home. We were especially pleased with how Kevin made himself readily available for viewing properties often on the same day. He also kept up-to-date with daily fluctuations in the real estate market as well as with interest rates during the volatile recession. Also, he found an amazing loan product for us that very few people knew about. Because of his expertise we were able to close on our dream property, at a significant discount to the asking price, and with a great mortgage rate. We highly recommend both Kevin and Brendon for first-time home buyers trying to navigate the treacherous waters of San Francisco real estate. We would also definitely call on them if we ever wanted to buy, or sell, again. But with this great a dream home, why would we ever want to … many thanks to Kevin.”
Lou and Joey

Testimonial7 “Within 2 days of working with Kevin he helped us accomplish something we had been trying to do unsuccessfully for months- get our offer accepted on an amazing property! If a two day turnaround isn’t testimonial enough, his market knowledge, professionalism and negotiating skills should be. He expertly guided us through the bidding process, taking steps to ensure we were confident and properly prepared to make the right offer. Thanks to Kevin we avoided overbidding and in fact, managed to walk away with a quite the deal. I cannot recommend Kevin Kearney enough!”
Kristie G.

Testimonial2 “Our relationship with Kevin began by default, but had we known the level of service, we would have selected him from the get-go. His professionalism in keeping us sane through a 10 (yes 10) offer process, not pressuring us but making sure we understood what it was going to take to get the property, was stellar. He never dropped the ball from start to finish. We were very pleased with the service, I have recommended him to friends and wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.”— Eve and Bruce

Testimonial4 “We have worked with Brendon and Kevin Kearney on several real estate transactions in the past year. They have helped us to purchase an investment property, sell our house, and buy a new home. Throughout these transactions, they have been the consummate professionals.
Kevin is extremely honest and ethical, which is not necessarily a skill found in most realtors (we have worked with many in the past). He is hard-working, and dedicated to obtaining all the pertinent information for his clients so that they can make the best decisions. He is very knowledgeable about home construction, which is a valuable asset in a realtor, because he knows whether something is a true defect or just an inconsequential thing that can be easily repaired.”— Dylin and Allison

Testimonial5 “Earlier this year my parents unfortunately had to sell their home and move into a long term care facility. As their trustee, I had the task of finding a realtor and turned to my good friend Kevin Kearney to spearhead the sale. This was the first time I had been involved in a real estate transaction, and Kevin and his team took the time to explain all the details and work through my many questions. He provided helpful advice with finding contractors to make needed upgrades before putting the home on the market. He also made it very easy to navigate all the documents required to list and sell the property. And when all was said and done, Kevin’s knowledge and expertise helped provide for a smooth transaction and bring us a sale price $70k over asking!! Great service provided by a great friend! Thanks Kevin!!”
