Yes, I'm a very different kind of REALTOR.

I regularly crawl under properties and into attics because I've found that doing so will save my clients money up front, or help them avoid unexpected expenses later.

But that's just part of what makes me different.

Would you prefer a sales person or a fiduciary? A sales person is out for a quick commission for himself whereas a fiduciary is someone who accepts the obligation to put your finances first.

Do you deserve a trusted fiduciary to look after your most important financial investments? If so, I would welcome the opportunity to explore a relationship.

Are you seeking a REALTOR who provides you with information to help you make your own decisions?

My background as a financial analyst equips me to dig deep into the numbers, help you understand the details and translate complex contracts and negotiations into easy terms.

I've also been an entrepreneur and inventor, so I have experience with analyzing situations, evaluating short and long term risks, and helping you decide.

I look forward to meeting with you.

Best wishes,

Kirk Knight

Sold a home in 2014.

Looking for a Realtor who can do it all? Kirk's your man!

Since we met Kirk almost 2 years ago, Kirk helped us sell our house in Oakland and helped us buy a house in Alameda. Thanks to Kirk, the sale of our Oakland house was effortless... he managed every last detail. All we had to do was move out... he did everything else.

With the Alameda home search, Kirk had his hands full dealing with me and my husband. My husband and I have radically different concerns, priorities, and styles when it comes to buying a house. Kirk was able to juggle it all. Notably....

- Kirk came highly recommended from a friend who rarely does referrals

- Kirk was able to handle hubby's financial concerns, respecting our fluctuating price ranges and not once making us feel pressured to buy - Kirk was unflinchingly patient through 7 offers and nearly 2 years of looking. (This was a hard market to buy in ... lots of demand, very few houses available.) He never tired of the process!

- Kirk was extremely responsive, answering our calls/emails at any hour of the day/night

- Kirk was flexible. There were times Kirk would ride over on his bike within 10 minutes of us calling him from a random open house to answer our questions and see the house for himself

- Kirk would get on hands and knees, in crawl-spaces looking for even the slightest imperfections. He did everything he possibly could to ensure a house had no surprises.

- Kirk was unfazed by indecision (e.g. "now we want 3 BR, now we want 4 BR, now we want Bay Farm, now we want East End, etc.")

- Kirk respected our busy schedules, doing as much as possible on his own, getting us involved only when we needed/wanted to be - Our long-term happiness with the home is critically important to Kirk. In his words... "I live in Alameda. I will be seeing you around town. I want you to have no regrets."

- Kirk went above and beyond, even helped with some aspects of the house after the purchase went through.... arranging for some screens and windows to be fixed, putting a contractor lock box on house for workers coming through house after the purchase, etc.

My husband and I would use him again and would recommend him to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in San Leandro, CA.

I met Kirk briefly on my first visit to the East Bay, in the very early stages of considering accepting a relocation, to California, from NYC.

Immediately upon making the big decision to move here, I contacted Kirk and arranged to spend a day with him (on my next trip out) to get a lay of the land and begin to understand the market. He couldn't have been more helpful, more pleasant, more professional as he drove me around the East Bay, taking me into a variety of homes, helping me understand the nature of this marketplace.

To make this story short - and cut to the happy ending part - we moved out here in late-February and called Kirk (having stayed in touch over the course of the previous few months).

He showed us a house, we fell in love with it (and its potential), the negotiations began, and, well, we closed in 38 days. Phew!!! In that short time, Kirk crawled in crawl spaces, poked around the over-grown back yard, introduced us to an amazing home loan officer, helped us source a some needed contractors, exhibited the patience of a saint and the tenacity of marathon runner, has given insights and history lessons and has made us very happy homeowners in a landscape that we knew very little about.

To summarize - Kirk Knight is amazing at what he does, is a great guy, an absolute professional, and you would be crazy to work with anyone else.

Call Kirk immediately if you want the home buying experience to be positive, productive, professional and enjoyable.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Alameda, CA.

Let me begin by saying that this was not an easy home sale. We put our house up for sale as the only asset of note in a highly contentious separation. He took us on as clients knowing that we were in the middle of litigation over the house, and that contractors needed to be brought in to finish 2 major renovation projects.

Kirk managed the renovation and got the house on the market for us. By the time of the listing everything was completed and looked beautiful. He got us far more money for it than we ever hoped. In spite of the legal shenanigans Kirk was a stellar professional. He remained impartial and often went the extra mile for us. Twice he delivered documents to me in Berkeley when I didn't have time to pick them up.

Where Kirk really stood out was after the house closed. The day we signed the final papers at the title company (in different rooms... did I mention contentious litigation?) he not only joined us, but volunteered to try to mediate a settlement for us. After the papers were all signed, and therefore Kirk was already guaranteed his commission, he stuck around and mediated a settlement. I don't believe it could have happened without him. He was late to dinner with his wife because he didn't want to see any more of the profits go to lawyers.

Kirk is a paragon of honesty and integrity, and will be my Realtor in all future transactions.
