Could not have chosen a better agent. Kevin was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, and always prioritized our interests. He was incredibly patient in walking us through and explaining every document and step along the way. He was very knowledgeable, not only of the process but also of the market in general. There were a few unexpected issues that arose (new city ordinances, etc.), but Kevin made sure he did his research and due diligence for us to ensure we were fully informed before making any decisions. We always felt like we had a trusted professional on our side, with Kevin being an advisor when needed and a strong, honest negotiator when necessary. In the end, everything was exceptionally smooth. We had a sale price in mind, one that we'd be happy with, and we exceeded it. While the end result is important, Kevin's professionalism and trust-worthy personality made an otherwise intimidating experience a pleasurable one. Highly recommend working with Kevin if you're looking for a real estate agent!
Kevin was so nice I hired him twice! I was on the fence about selling my property or renting it out. Always the consummate professional, he put together a proposal packet which laid out the potential rental income for the area and researched comparable houses to determine what a reasonable listing price would be. Within the proposal was a summary of the selling process from beginning to end including the marketing strategy, timeline, estimate of closing costs, and to-do's to get the property ready for listing. He did not pressure us one way or the other. Everything we needed to know to make an informed decision was available to us. When we ultimately decided to sell our home, the obvious choice for a selling agent was Kevin. Once things kicked off, he helped find the inspectors, stager, and photographer. I was out of the country for a while, so he was on site to coordinate all of this. Throughout the entire process, Kevin kept us in the loop (about inspections, repairs, marketing, listing, and open houses) and was responsive to our questions. I had complete trust and faith in Kevin's suggestions in getting the property ready.When it came time to go over the offers, Kevin summarized all the offers in a succinct manner. I was eager to just accept what I thought was the best offer, but Kevin was able to negotiate an even better one out of it. Buying and selling a home can be a very emotional and stressful process, but Kevin was always reasonable and level-headed. His insight and guidance ultimately helped us make the right decisions. We were able to get top dollar and the transaction went through without any issues.
My husband and I are first time homebuyers in the Bay Area. We knew it was going to be a competitive market so we wanted to make sure we selected a realtor who is effectively but also patience. We are so happy that we found Kevin! Even before we started our official hunt for new homes, Kevin made himself available via email and text messages to answer preliminary questions about the process, real-estate market trends and random properties we found online. Once we buckled down and got pre-approved (through a greater lender recommended by Kevin), Kevin diligently sent us listings every week but never pushed us to hurry up and make a decision. He was observant about our likes and dislikes during showings and showed us some great homes that we would have never found by ourselves. Due to our busy schedules, he showed us homes on weekdays after work. He also gave us imperative knowledge about the real estate trends and was spot on in determining how much a house will go for. We lost a few homes by not going with his recommendation on offer price but throughout the process, he never pushed us to go above our comfort level when it came to budget. Kevin also reviewed all disclosure documents for us and emailed us a summary! For first-time buyers, this is crucial because we are not familiar with terminology and what to look for. He was there every step of the way - he negotiated a credit on our behalf, he met with all our inspectors while we were at work, he was present when we signed escrow papers and continued to give us guidance after escrow closed about changing utilities and door locks, etc. We felt like he really cared about us, our long-term happiness with the home, and gave us the encouragement we needed to push on after some of our offers didn't get accepted. With Kevin's help and determination, we found our dream home, under budget, in a fantastic neighborhood! I would recommend Kevin whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a realtor in the Bay Area.
I was introduced to Kevin waaaaay back in 2017 when I first started my home search. Where do I start? Kevin is always professionally dressed, clean, and well spoken. He is the definition of professional. He is the type of person who carries through with his promises. If he tells me he will send me disclosures then within the hour I often find them in my inbox. On top of that he always highlighted the major issues with any properties we were interested in.Kevin got a feel for the types of homes we were interested in and selected the ones in which we liked (which he then showed).Kevin is super responsive, knowledgeable, patient, and punctual. Being a first time home buyer, I had many questions and Kevin answered them all (sometimes even until late hours of 10 PM). If some of them were out of his scope he would point me in the right direction for an answer. We've been searching for a house for the past two years. In these two years we have encountered issues of being outbid or a home had too many problems for us to want to deal with. In either case we didn't get the home we hoped we would, but even during times like those Kevin was always upbeat and optimistic even when we felt it was hopeless.It's difficult to describe how great Kevin is because there are too many qualities to name. I have heard horror stories about how the realtor is just pushy and wants to to be done so he could get his commission, but with Kevin you get the sense that he wants you to love your purchase and be fully informed as to its quirks and problems. I always felt that Kevin had my best interests in mind and that ultimately is the reason why I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who asks for an amazing realtor.
Kevin was a consummate professional and was able to help us find our first home in Castro Valley. The Bay Area has a competitive real estate market and having to show homes in three separate cities is tough, but Kevin provided invaluable insight and was honest with us about the market conditions in areas we were looking : Oakland, Alameda, and Castro Valley. Kevin is knowledge about the process of buying a home, walked us through it all, and was very patient with us. Despite a few of offers being beaten by other buyers, Kevin stayed the course and kept us motivated throughout the entire journey. He continually reassured us that we'll eventually find our new home - and we did! His research into comparables and the market in various neighborhoods was comprehensive and extremely helpful in us making the right offer to get accepted. Once our offer was accepted, Kevin helped drive the process and kept us on track to close escrow within 14 days (I'm not exaggerating). He helped set up all of the inspections, was on site for them, and was in constant communication with us about everything. When the inspection reports were complete, he summarized it for us and pointed out the issues worth noting which helped us focus our efforts on pertinent issues. Kevin was responsive and helped coordinate communication between the listing agent, the mortgage consultant, and everyone involved. Needless to say, the transaction went smoothly and we were able to close escrow within 14 days and literally got our keys two Fridays after our offer was accepted. Professional. Insightful. Responsive. Highly recommended
Really enjoyed our buying experience with Kevin Lowe. He was very professional, attentive, and knowledgable about the market. My wife and I were first time home buyers and Kevin was very patient with our questions and made himself available even during after hours. It took us awhile to find our perfect home and Kevin was there throughout the entire process from giving us weekly updates on available homes to the escrow period. During our home tours, he was also very considerate and looked out for our best interest if he felt a home wasn’t up to our standard. After we made our purchase, Kevin still made himself available by making sure we were settled in and addressing all of our post-purchase questions. I trust and recommend Kevin to anyone in my network looking to purchase a home.
Kevin did an amazing job with helping sell our commercial property. He was always diligent, well prepared and efficient with the sale process. Kevin helped us get through many hurdles and communicated well with potential buyers throughout the process. Overall it was a great experience working with Kevin and we highly recommend him.
Kevin was exactly what we were hoping to find in an agent. He was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, responsive, insightful and professional. Kevin helped my wife and I find our first home, hitting every mark we were searching for. We felt very comfortable, trusting and informed through each step of the process. Home-hunting can be a daunting endeavor, but Kevin made it a positive experience. We would highly recommend Kevin for anyone considering an agent. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to us Kev!
Kevin proactively helped us finding our new home and was always readily available even when we asked for requests in the evening. He has a comprehensive knowledge on the local market and he always provided insights on our questions. We really enjoyed working with him. We will definitely introduce him to friends. Thanks, Kevin!
Kevin was so quick to respond from day one. He was always professional, pleasant, and available to answer questions. He went out of his way to give me an extra viewing of the home and accommodated every request.Kevin is top notch!
Kevin was engaged in selling our parents condominium in Sept. 2016. He advised us in staging the apartment to present it in the best light with minimum expense, put it on the market, had an open house and he was able to close the sale all within a month's time! We were very impressed with his professionalism, quite responsive to inquiries and attention to detail and follow-ups. We would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a realtor!
Kevin was the realtor who helped me sell my condominium in Oakland. He was great. He worked with me to get the unit ready to sell. He had sources to get it into tip top shape. He knew the comparables and sales trends, so we could develop a winning strategy. Against my nature, he suggested staging which I went along with. What a great idea. The condo sold and closed within about a month of going on the market. And it sold for 20% over asking with no contingencies - all cash. There were a dozen other offers for over asking. I could not have been happier.
Kevin was thorough, attentive, and really took the time to walk me through my first home purchase. Having him in my corner helped ease a lot of the stress and worry around bidding, closing, and in general navigating through the overall process. I'd highly recommend him to anybody looking in the Bay Area and needing a little guidance and expertise. He's your sherpa.
As a first time home buyer it was important to have someone who could guide us through this stressful, foreign process with the patience, understanding, and knowledge that Kevin provided. We had an idea, but truly knew very little about the inner workings of what goes on when buying a house. Kevin educated us along the way and made sure we understood what we were dealing with before moving forward. He gave us updates with each proceeding and told us what to expect with the next steps moving forward. With all of the questions we had throughout the process, he was always available and approachable. During the negotiation phase, Kevin wrote in a couple of contingencies in the contract that showed a lot of tact on his end and helped ease our anxiety. We also asked his personal opinion on how to proceed with certain areas of negotiating and in the end we ended up saving money. We found Kevin to not only be very dedicated but also very passionate, which shows in his work and attitude. We truly appreciate his opinions, inputs, and genuine honesty. We hold Kevin in high regards and would definitely recommend him.
Kevin has been a remarkable advocate during my home buying process. He has been highly responsive and regarded me as in individual with specific wants and needs. He advocated for me throughout the each step and empowered me by helping me understand the intricacies of the process. I have and will continue to recommend his services to anyone in the market for a home, particularly in Oakland, as he is a native privy to nuance of each neighborhood. Bravo, Kevin! Keep up the good work.
Kevin came as a reference from a friend and I'm pleased with the work that he put into helping us buy my very first home. He was thorough with communication and answering all of the questions thrown his way. Even after closing on the home, Kevin has been very helpful with tying up loose ends and being a point of contact between the seller and me. I would recommend Kevin for anyone who needs to buy in the East Bay Area and appreciate all that he's done for my growing family.
Kevin did an amazing job from start to finish with the purchase of my home. He was on top of things from the moment that I contacted him and kept me up to date with where we were in the process. The listing agent even told us that she accepted our offer over other similar offers because of how impressed she was with Kevin. I felt fortunate to have him as my agent.
My wife and I were fist time home buyers and Kevin walked us through each step of the process and made sure we were comfortable with everything. He was available to us anytime we needed him. He was very accommodating and also gave us great advice based on his past experience. He kept us informed throughout the process even though we were very busy. We would highly recommend Kevin!
This review is long overdue but we haven't forgotten the excellent service that Kevin provided to us 2 years ago! We were first time homebuyers and were looking for something that would fit our lifestyle at the time. He was VERY responsive while we were going through this transaction 2 years ago and have recommended him highly. We will be using Kevin again for our next house :)
We just closed an escrow. I'd gone through some other agents, and my only regret is that not knowing Kevin earlier before I wasted so much time. Kevin is so attentive and skilled, that he has the quality of the best realtor.
Kevin is very professional and easy to work with. He facilitated most of our document signing and helped scheduled and rescheduled our final document signing. He is very patient and accommodating. He coordinated and scheduled when buyers and other realtors were able to stop by and see our property. He kept us well informed and answered all our questions. I will definitely work with Kevin again next time I decide to purchase or sell another property.
Kevin worked with us for nearly two years. His patience and flexibility with our changing needs, wants and scheduling were amazing. I've never seen someone take so many changes and odd requests in to consideration so gracefully. His market knowledge and expertise in the buying process was amazing since we had absolutely no knowledge of any of it. He answered our endless questions and was always happy to send us new listings, show us homes at odd times when needed and change our search criteria based on our changing needs. We can't recommend him highly enough!
My gf and I were first time home buyers and Kevin walked us through each and every single step of the the complicated process. He was very helpful at all hours, we were able to communicate with help throughout the whole process. We were never in the dark. We are very thankful for Kevin's help and we highly recommend him.
It was my first time selling a condo, and a trusted friend recommended Kevin. Naturally, I had many questions during the process. Kevin walked me through everything, with incredible patience, step by step. Not only do I feel totally satisfied with the sale, but the process itself was enjoyable with Kevin. Even after the sale went through, he was there to help with all the final details, and even came (with a truck!) to help me move out of my place. All in all, I would definitely and strongly recommend his services!
Kevin was great to work with. Finding a home in this area was not an easy process, but Kevin stuck with us, was always prompt and responsive in communications and patient in answering our questions. He went above and beyond expectations and helped us out after the sale of the house was already completed by holding our keys for us and letting contractors in to work on the house while we were out of town. He always worked with our schedules, and stayed on top of every part of the process from start to finish. We'd definitely recommend him as a realtor.
I was working with another real estate agent previously but when she moved out of the area, I decided to try an internet search. I contacted Kenny Truong, who wasn't available but who was working with Kevin. This chance encounter led to an incredible experience and despite having almost exacerbated and given up on the home search, his dedication and expertise helped catapult my drive and close faster than I had anticipated and before my deadline.I was happily surprised to discover that he was close friends with one of my childhood friends and he was also a Bay native and Oakland A's fan. He was my first real estate agent that I bought a house with, and I was also the first client that he helped to buy a home on his own. I feel grateful to have been able to provide him with that opportunity and gain from his training and expertise.I had a complicated case since the home I ended up purchasing discovered some things during the home inspection that almost made me walk away from buying the property, but with Kevin's assistance we were able to come to an agreement where the seller agreed to fix some items and credit some costs.Kevin is smart, dedicated, hard-working, and comes through when you need it most. I was even lucky enough to be given a pair of tickets to the opening A's game along with a heartfelt thank-you letter upon closing.Do yourself a favor and work with Kevin.
Buying a house has been a dream of mine since I was young; once my fiance and I, closed on our house, it felt like the biggest accomplishment of my life. However, the road to get there is very much like a maze. I am very happy that I met Kevin because he was my guide through that maze. Kevin was my 3rd agent in my home buying process, after my first two agents were a bit unresponsive, which raised a red flag for me. Kevin was very responsive and he went out of his way for me; and honestly, that's all I really wanted in my agent at the time. Since our first encounter, I had a great vibe about kevin. I e-mailed him and inquired about a house that I was interested in and he took me to that house later that day. We exchanged numbers and text messaged each other during the few following days so that he can get a "feel" of what I was looking for. Quite frankly, I had a few criterias, but I didn't really know what I wanted. Kevin must have took me to over 20 houses ranging from townhouses to condos and single family homes, not to mention educating a first time home buyer like myself, along the way. I would ask him his personal opinions at times and he was very honest and it was something I really appreciated and valued.Kevin always told me what to expect, and after every house we looked at, he sent me disclosures and information on that area right away. When my offer was accepted, he told me what to expect during ALL of the document signing process and at times, explained the things that I didn't fully understand. He negotiated for me during the closing process and he was even there by my side, at the title company! During my home buying process, kevin became more than just my agent, I felt as if I had a friend and guide by my side. I mentioned that this process was much like a maze, and when you have an agent who has your best interests at heart, the road is a little more clear. I couldn't have asked for more from Kevin Lowe, I definitely give him 5 stars and would recommend him to my friends and family.
We're first time home buyers and had no knowledge of the process at all. We were lucky to have Kevin as our agent. I felt Kevin looked after us in our best interest, his offer recommendations were reasonable and all came with an explanation. He's very punctual and responsive, which was a big plus for us. He helped us every step of the way, educating us, and ensuring we understood everything. To top it off, he had to deal w a difficult and indecisive couple, while staying calm and composed.
We worked with Kevin Lowe for the purchase of our home that we just received keys to TODAY!When we first started the home buying process, we were working with another Realtor who really wasn't doing what we expected and we had to work around her schedule and on top of that, we had to look for homes on our own. We ran into Kevin during an open house he was having and thought he was really helpful and responsive to our questions. We immediately decided we wanted to work with Kevin. From the beginning to end, he was simply remarkable. He'd send me list of homes, was really open to our schedule and was on top of everything and anything really. Hopefully if/when we do our next purchase, I will make sure to contact Kevin Lowe first.Thank you again Kevin for all of your hard work and dedication to making us first time home buyers!
Kevin was extremely helpful and patient with us first time buyers. He was happy to show us as many properties as we desired. As a first time homebuyer, Kevin was super knowledgable and was able to give me great advice on my first purchase. Highly recommended!
