Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Montara, CA.
When we first met Kathy and Michael Rain all we knew about the area was that we liked going to the beach there. We quickly benefited from their expertise on the Half Moon Bay area, real estate contracts, and negotiation. They made sure of that. The Rain Team runs a client focused and highly ethical business, which was very important to us. It became very clear they care about their clients. They helped us think through our purchase and because of them we found a home that met all our needs and wants. They navigated us through some unique circumstances and we knew we were in good hands. They even gave us some good ideas for the renovations. Fast forward 15 years and who were we going to call to sell our home, The Rain Team. Kathy is amazing at helping stage a home for sale, which is key to finding a buyer. When you engage Michael and Kathy you are getting the best of the best. No one runs an open house like Michael. In a blink of an eye they got our house in contract. Their service did not stop there. They represented us thoughout the ongoing negotiations expertly and we closed on time. I would recommend Michael and Kathy Rain to everyone with great confidence. Buying and selling a home is a business transaction and also an emotional experience. Throughout the process we felt like the buying and selling transactions were being carefully and expertly managed and we were being guided through the process with our interest front and center. We got our asking price and the only sad thing is that we moved out of the area. I've bought and sold many homes and have never had Realtors like Michael and Kathy Rain. Our suggestion is check them out before even thinking about using another agent. Professionals like The Rain Team need to be rewarded so they can keep helping people like us find a good home and sell a home when life moves you on to the next adventure.

Bought a home in 2014.
Michael and Kathy are exceptional agents! As first-time home buyers, we were looking for agents who would be patient, help us to understand the ins and outs of home buying, and have our best interest in mind throughout. Michael and Kathy did all of those things, and worked tirelessly to help us find not just any suitable home, but the "right" home for us. After almost one year of working with them (and through many emotional highs and lows of trying to buy a home in this market), we have found a home that we love, and are so incredibly grateful for their continued support and knowledge throughout, every step of the way. Michael & Kathy - Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Pacifica, CA.
I can't recommend Kathy & Michael Rain highly enough. They have a commanding knowledge of the coastal real estate from Half Moon Bay to Pacifica, down to knowing the pros and cons of seemingly every street in every coastal community in this region. I particularly appreciated their advice in steering us away from certain areas and certain homes with knowledge that only a very experienced realtor would have. We came to be convinced that they had our best interests at heart, and so we came to rely heavily on their advice. Now, I've dealt with a number of realtors in the past, and when the deal is inked they disappear. But with Kathy and Michael I feel like they are now extended family, and I'm really pleased that we'll be living only a few miles apart and will get to see each other. Living on the coast is a dream come true for us, and if I had to do it over again I would do it exactly the same, as long as it was with them!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.025M in Half Moon Bay, CA.
Best Agents ever. They work very hard and understand the local market from top to bottom. Kathy and Michael were able to get us multiple offers above asking price in less than 2 weeks in part due to Kathy's expertise in staging. Michael's strict attention to the contracts and inspections proved to be another part of the successful transaction. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed. The communications between us and with Kathy and Michael was prompt, clear and concise. You will not work with better agents.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Montara, CA.
About 1.5 years ago we started seriously looking into buying our first house and got in touch with Michael and Kathy. Throughout the process, Michael and Kathy have patiently guided us forward, from checking out properties, making a first offer, and finally closing the deal. We could not have asked for more! They are a fantastic team and combine a very friendly and open interaction with an extremely high level of professionalism.

As first-time buyers, and real-estate noobs, we really appreciated their willingness to take the time to go over things and explain the various steps in the process. They have helped every step of the way, from interpreting technical reports, to making a realistic offer and negotiating through. We have always felt we were in excellent hands. Most importantly perhaps, they have helped make this journey into a great experience! Thank you Michael and Kathy! Greatly recommended!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Pacifica, CA.
Michael and Kathy have lived in the area they represent for many years. They have deep local knowledge through experience.

My home sold promptly for a significant price above asking. The market assisted in this outcome but without their negotiation skills, I would have settled for over 30K less.

I did not have to question ever whether all documents were completed and their authenticity. I was confident in their process to identify and complete all documents according to California Real Estate Law.

Overall, I give Michael and Kathy a very high recommendation with regard to their expertise, service and negotation skills. Very professional, yet caring husband andd wife team.

Bought a home in 2013.
This is my 6th transaction with Kathy and Michael Rain - buys and sell transactions. As always they are responsive, professional, innovative, problem solvers, and very thorough. They ensure that my rights and needs are protected and addressed. They work with me and the opposite party to ensure that the deal is done smoothly and everyone walks away with what they need. Their knowledge of the coastside is unsurpassed. In all their years on the coastside, it is most probable that they have been in nearly every property on the coast and know its pros and cons. They listen!!!! They act to fulfill my agenda, keep me informed timely, and give me information for me to make decisions. Service of the highest and best quality.

Bought a Other home in 2013 in San Bruno, CA.
Michael and Kathy represented us in the purchase of a unit at the Shelter Creek complex in San Bruno in May 2013. They were professional and diligent, very responsive, and very thorough in following through on every item / issue that came up. They were also genuinely concerned for our welfare during this process, and made some good / helpful suggestions to guide our decision-making, including their recommendation of Shelter Creek for us, vs. other possible condo complexes. Kathy and Michael negotiated effectively with the seller, and worked hard to ensure a smooth and timely purchase.

Bought a home in 2013.
After one full year of disappointment and despair, my wife and I were very ready to give up on trying to buy a home in the San Francisco area. We had worked with 9 different agents, looked at and bid on dozens and dozens of homes only to get beat to the offer or outbid every time. Kathy and Michael Rain displayed amazing patience with us first time buyers while showing us home after home perfectly selected to meet our criteria. They taught us the highlights to look for as well as the concerns with each home to watch out for and finally, after the full year of hardship, they helped us land our dream home! While they have been nothing but professional, Kathy and Michael made it feel more like we were going through an accommodating and warm process with friends in place of a cold and highly competitive business transaction. Indeed, we now consider them friends after how well they treated us!
