I'm happy to say that thanks to Kristin, I’m writing this review sitting next to the window of my lovely Downtown loft. Before her we worked with a few agents for a whole year and didn't find the right fit. That’s when we decided to call Kristin and quickly after a couple of months, we found the perfect place.
Kristin was always very helpful, she made the process very simple and easy to understand. She was always available to answer any questions, this was amazing because we were first time home-owners and we had lots of them!
I would recommend Kristin in a heartbeat to anyone that is looking to buy property in Los Angeles, hopefully I will be able to work with her again soon.
I am so picky. Detail oriented. Question asker. Almost anal.
It is very rare for me to be completely satisfied with anything. I was with Kristin Kanan.
It took trying with 3 different agents to find the right one. I'll always be thankful to the coworker that recommended me to meet Kristin.
Granted, we were lucky to find a place we loved fairly quickly. But it was with Kristin and… it came with a challenge: it was a short sale. And a bumpy one.
It took more than 6 moths to buy the house we liked due to the seller's lenders' endless processing times. I won't get into the details but it was not an easy deal. It felt we were jumping hoops at some point, but my wife and I never felt alone.
Kristin is professional, communicative, energetic, outgoing and a real nice person, too. But what we loved the most about her is that she was always available for us. She genuinely cared.
Came to see houses with us? Yes! (maybe this is normal but other agents would just send us house viewing by ourselves)
Was present in all our inspections? Yes! (and we did several of them)
Responded emails, text messages, phone calls fairly quickly? Oh, yes!
If she didn't know an answer, she would admit it and go find out. A rare quality to find nowadays.
We always felt taken care of.
If you are looking for an agent, go with Kristin. You won't regret it.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Crenshaw, Los Angeles, CA.
We can't speak highly enough of Kristin Kanan! Her knowledge and insight helped us to navigate our way to buying our beautiful home! We were first time home buyers and were looking in a very competitive neighborhood. Her suggestions and guidance on negotiations helped immensely - we would not have been successful without her. She knows the real estate business inside and out and is tireless beyond anyone we have ever met. She also got back to us very quickly any time we needed to ask questions or her advice (and as first time home buyers we had A LOT of questions). And if this isn't enough, she is also a very cool person and a great human being! Do yourself a favor and call her - you won't be disappointed!
I've never had more dedicated service in any arena than Kristin provided for the purchase of our home. From being available for showings nearly anytime and place to proactive comps from the area to suggestions for services from inspections to financing, Kristin was on it. She's also very personable and easy to deal with. She was so helpful in with our purchase that we also used her for two rental listings. Both were rented quickly and the transactions went extremely smoothly. I can't recommend her highly enough!
Anyone looking to buy real estate in Los Angeles needs to contact Kristin Kanan. She is an absolute credit to Coldwell Banker. We purchased our property sight unseen from Australia and everything was done online. From the first point of contact Kristin has gone above and beyond the call of duty to serve our best interests. She takes pictures and videos of properties to send through, is quick in responding, answering any questions and making the necessary contacts to find out any information we required. She is truly worth her weight in gold. I trust her implicitly and it became clear from the very beginning she is great at what she does simply because she loves it. She found us a downtown loft which we are thrilled with after opening up our search to other possibilities which we never considered. We are blessed to know her and look forward to more dealings in the future.
I'm copying my Yelp review here because, well, I'm lazy. But Kristin sure isn't! This was my first home purchase. I actually already own a home in Florida but my mom did that whole deal for me, I just signed all the loan papers. This was the first time "I" bought a home and man, what a gut wrenching process! We started looking in July with the intention of finding a home by October. Well let me tell you as I write this it is October 7th and that deal is DONE, Kristin is on her way over here now to drop off the keys to my new house, signed sealed delivered! She really went the extra mile all the way through this whole process. Explaining all the stuff I didn't understand and guiding me through, talking me off the various ledges I found myself on and through all the freakouts and emotions of negotiating. I felt like she was looking out for my best interests and even down to the last minute she saved me hours, no days, by driving all over the universe to deliver documents from the escrow agent to the notary to the lender rather than having them mailed or couriered (we're talking from Santa Monica to Sherman Oaks, Downtown L.A. to Irvine to Downey, etc...). Most people in L.A. won't cross the street to help their own mothers. Highly Recommend.
Showed home in 2010 in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, CA.
I’ve been buying/selling real estate for years, and have never come across an agent like Kristin. She made me feel like I was her only client; always available to show properties, informing me of changes in the market, etc. She listened to me and understood exactly what I was looking for, but never pushy or opinionated. If you’re looking for a dedicated, honest agent, look no further – Kristin is the best!
I just bought my first home thanks to Kristin! Not only she was extremely thorough and knowledgeable, she is extremely organize and on top of everything happening.
I had a difficult case with the loan and escrow and Kristin really help me through it. Her dedication and candidness really stands out- as well as her true passion to help people fulfill their dreams of buying a home. It was a real pleasure to meet with her.
I would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a trustworthy, efficient and professional agent! I would have not been able to buy my first home without her!
