Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Brentwood, CA.
Esther was extremely professional and attentive while helping me to sell my home. I lived out of state and had a current Renter. She not only found a buyer very quickly, but help manage the exit of the current Renter. Her communication skills were a huge plus, making up for the lack of my physical presence. She even helped me with the removal and donation of several appliances the buyer did not need. I would recommend Esther to family and friends for sure!

After first meeting with Esther, my first impression was that she completely understood the process and was very quick to respond to all my questions and concerns as well as any and all information necessary to help ease the frustration that accompanies the sale of a home. Esther was persistent and had faith that she would protect us throughout the process. I have and will continue to recommend her to my family and friends.
Esther was amazingly prompt when contacted regarding a house showing in her area. She communicated great with us and was informative about the process and what the action plan would be. Definitely call or contact her if you want to get moving right away!

Thanks for the very kind referral. Hopefully we will be working on finding a great home for you to purchase in the near future.
Thank you Esther for all the time you spent with us to understand the market situation and what to consider when buying a distressed home. If only we met you sooner before the market rebounded so fast!

Thank you for the kind referral. It was a pleasure working with you in 2013/2014. Unfortunately, the home prices were increasing too quickly with multiple offers of over 20 per listing coupled with an extremely low inventory. A perfect storm for sellers!
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $675K in Discovery Bay, CA.
I rarely spend the time to do this (write "referral" letters), but I'm sending this letter to Esther Kennedy as a thank you for putting up with me for the better part of a year and doing such a great job helping me find my "dream" second home.
I'm a fussy guy and at times I know I can be a handful to deal with (its good to know your shortcomings!), especially when it came down to writing offers and price negotiation. Through the entire process Esther always maintained her professionalism and never lost her cool, and she was very helpful in helping me find a home. In fact I was really only "looking", trying to get a better idea of the marketplace and potential future opportunities when one seemed to land in my lap after many months of watching the market and communicating back and forth with Esther. I ended up buying a foreclosure property and she was very knowledgeable in guiding me threw some of the unique situations that scenario can lead to. Months later after I closed on the property we still stay in touch from time to time and I feel she is an asset and a friend helping me get better acclimated to the neighborhood.
I would highly recommend using her services and hope anyone reading this has as much luck as I did finding the right house with the right agent to guide me.
Sold a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $650K in Discovery Bay, CA.
Esther represented us in the purchase of our bank owned Discovery Bay vacation home in 2008 and then in the resale of the home in 2012. We were not easy clients as our knowledged and expertise in real estate made us demanding both as buyers, and then as sellers but Esther never wavered and was steady and calm through the storms that arose on both the purchase and sale. She is truly a professional realtor with full knowledge of all the issues and problems that can develop for both buyers and sellers so. Have purchased and sold nearly 30 homes for our personal use in the past 35 years, I can definitely say we would hire or use her again. I think one of her greatest attributes is her skill at problem resolution even when her client is overly emotional. We wish her the best luck and hope others find her as great a resource as we did.
Esther is the most dedicated and efficient real estate agent I have ever worked with. She was able to procure a seller for one home and found a new home for my relocation from Discovery Bay, CA to Alamo, CA that met my budget and timeline. I recommend Esther to everyone I know and will continue to do business with her in the future.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Oakley, CA.
After first meeting my real estate agent Esther my first impression was great. She showed me that she was very efficient and was quick to get us around the city, knowing exactly where she was going. I felt during the whole process that she was persistent and had faith that she would protect me throughout the whole deal. I am very satisfied and would recommend her to all my friends.
There were many complications in selling the home that was in a trust and it was at a time when homes were quickly dropping in value. I thought we'd never get the house sold, but Esther was always positive and in the end we had several buyers interested in the house and the house did sell. Esther was always professional and was my guardian angel through this sale. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home and wouldn't hesitate to use her services again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $350K in Brentwood, CA.
In this confusing real estate market of foreclosures and short sales, Esther Kennedy helped us thru the process of buying a foreclosure. As frustrating as this process can be for the buyer, Esther made the purchase 'less painful' with her expert knowledge, tenacity and attention to all details. Thank you, Esther!!!
