Team reviews

Kate worked with us over a 6 month period to buy our house. She was great in every way possible and was very involved with literally every step of the home buying process. She has a great team, exceptional contacts in the real estate ecosystem, and has probably encountered every possible set of circumstances that can occur in the real estate process. If you need someone that is calm, professional, and a good problem solver, than you should definitely work with Kate. We encountered an usual set of tough circumstances during our search but Kate always knew exactly what to do and how to approach the problems that kept popping up. Ultimately, she was the key reason we were able to close.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.3M in Mid City West, Los Angeles, CA.

We began our home buying search without a ton knowledge of the Los Angeles area. We narrowed it down to the west side and we needed an agent that had great experience in that area. We couldn't have been happier to hire Kate Bransfield as our representative as we started our search in West LA. Kate and her team were unbelievable throughout the process. Within an hour of agreeing to work together, we were on the mls system and receiving notifications on properties in the exact range of what we wanted. Once we decided on our property, we received every market report you could ask for which helped us make an informed decision. Once in the process, Kate maneuvered beautifully and we always felt we were making the right decisions. Her knowledge of the process, market and her positive attitude made this a stress free purchase. I would highly recommend Kate and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the LA area.

Bought a home in 2009 in Ocean Park, Santa Monica, CA 90405.

I bought my first home with Kate in 2009 and, sparing the hyperbole and cliches, I literally could not have done it without her masterful help. After holding my hand for over a year as I shopped and made careful (yet rejected) offers all over Santa Monica, I finally found a home that was right for me. Not once during my long shopping year did Kate ever pressure me into doing anything I wasn't comfortable with. When we did find the right place our patience paid off and our offer was accepted--- much to my financial benefit. Unfortunately, the escrow turned out to be a logistical disaster--- the seller living over seas, often without phone or FAX and not speaking English. Kate navigated the impossible and when I had given up hope, she closed the deal. I'm still in my home, happy and content, and owe a great deal to Kate's professionalism and friendship. I have recommended her numerous times to friends and acquaintances--- which I think is the highest praise one can give.

Bought a home in 2011 in Santa Monica, CA 90403.

Kate helped us find and buy our home in Santa Monica. We worked with a few agents for a few years before Kate.

We decided to switch to Kate because of the following reasons:

Kate lives in Santa Monica. We felt it would make a difference to have a realtor who lives in the local area where we wanted to buy. She lived close to the properties and was more assessable than other realtors.

Kate is involved in the local community has extensive knowledge of the area and is aware of potential changes. We were moving from another city and this was very helpful for us.

Kate was a top realtor in Santa Monica (in terms of revenue and bookings) indicating she had a network of clients, insight on new market inventory ,and could close business.

Kate is aligned Caldwell Banker so that meant she had more tools than smaller realtors.

Kate reinvests in her business as evidenced by her extensive marketing and outreach in Santa Monica. This indicated to us confidence in her own work. Kate is a very hard worker and personable.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $9.425M in Santa Monica, CA.

Kate took me through the sale of my beloved home where I raised my children, into a temporary rental property, and finally through the purchase of my current home. The process initially was overwhelming for me, but Kate was able to help in so many ways in dealing with the details that needed to be addressed, and helped to make a very difficult move for me manageable. She went above and beyond my expectations, and I consider her a true friend, and a wonderful example of a very capable, knowledgeable, honest and hard working agent, looking out for my interests, with sincere concern to help me through some key decisions to reach my current home. I would definitely use Kate again for my future real estate needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $3.275M in Santa Monica, CA.

We worked with Kate for over 3 years to find our house. She never lost patience and encouraged us to wait for the right house. In that time, she also found us a great condo to rent and showed us many off-market properties. We dragged her all over town (even out to Malibu) and she always made time for us and did so with a smile. In addition to the great help she provided, we were even more pleased with having added her as a friend. Although not looking for a house anymore, we still see Kate regularly as a good friend. We would recommend her to any looking for a real estate agent in Santa Monica".

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.725M in Santa Monica, CA.

Kate and her team did a great job of listing the house and getting in offers quickly. Had two offers within a week. She responded to all my questions in a quick and professional manner and really made it a seamless and smooth sale.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Santa Monica, CA.

By far The Best Real Estate Agent in North Santa Monica 100% Straight Up and Keeps you updated thru out the process - You can basically leave it all in her hands and everything gets done on time and perfectly. If I had something else to sell in Santa Monica - It would be very simple as I would just call Kate

Bought a Multi Family home in 2008 for approximately $750K in Santa Monica, CA.

Kate has helped us with two separate RE transactions. I really wouldn't go with anyone else in Santa Monica either as a buyer or a seller. She's not in the business or getting a commission. She works to build life-time relationships, and that is what you want in an agent. Not one that is here today and gone tomorrow.

Bought a home in 2004 in Santa Monica, CA 90403.

Kate was fantastic in all regards: Efficient, thorough, great negotiator, and very friendly and helpful. When we sell, we will use her again. What was specfically great for us as first time buyers was how patient, how instructive, and how savvy she was. The process was a breeze.
