An unfortunate Reality!

That same research revealed that only 24% of consumers agreed with that belief. Ouch!!

Kat and Bob are amazing! As first time homebuyers, we were having a hard time navigating the challenging and competitive Silicon Valley real estate market. We had been looking for a home for 8 months when we finally met Bob and Kat at an open house. Their kindness and energy was infectious and we knew from the first meeting that they would be the perfect people to help us. Within 24 hours, we had not only found “the one” but had successfully put in an offer and had it accepted! It was quite a whirlwind but now we can truly say we are living in our dream home. Kat and Bob guided us through the process and knew who to call to get all the information we needed to get in front of the seller with a credible and realistic offer. We truly feel that their guidance helped us get a great deal – not an easy accomplishment in this area!

We are so happy to have found Bob and Kat and can’t say enough about their kindness, professionalism and strong community connections. They understand the market and know how to negotiate to help their clients achieve their goals. Best of all: they are nice people and really take the time to get to know their clients. We would love a chance to work with them again and have recommended them to both friends and family. Kat and Bob are as good as it gets!

As first-time home buyers in the Bay Area, we knew that a challenging and difficult path was ahead of us, and we knew that a stellar realtor was critical to our success. Following a colleague’s advice to work with Ali Toscano from Bedbury Realtors was a decision that made our intimidating purchase exciting, enjoyable, and an all-around great experience.

 

From the moment we met Ali, we were impressed by her knowledge of the area, her eagerness to learn our likes and dislikes, and her insightfulness. It was easy to trust Ali and we instantly knew that we would be successful working together. We bonded over Google Spreadsheets, cats, and wine, and were so impressed by how easy it was to trust and get along with Ali. One of the things we liked most about working with Ali was her honesty and candor in the face of our millions (and millions) of questions and concerns. She faced our middle-of-the-night freakouts with aplomb and never seemed to be phased by our emails that started out with “just a few quick questions…” and then lasted for pages and pages.

 

While purchasing our new home, we were faced with quite a few challenges, all of which Ali faced head on, while telling us – “I’ve got this. You’re OK.” That sort of honest, kind reassurance in the face of daunting obstacles provided us with the confidence we needed to pursue and purchase the home of our dreams. Her problem-solving mindset and tenacity absolutely helped us work through each of the challenges we faced.


We’ve been living in our dream home for nearly a week now, and we couldn’t imagine going through the home-buying process with anyone besides Ali. She is continuing to stay in touch and inquiring about our experience thus far. Her dedication to ensure we’re happy & taken care of extends well past the closing date. We’re so lucky that Ali was the hard-working, determined, trustworthy, and enjoyable realtor that we selected, and we recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone searching for someone to help them buy their dream home.

Sincerely,

Kyle and Brianne M.

"You need someone you can trust..." (copy)

Like many of you reading this, My husband and I were looking to buy for the first time, but did not know the best way to get started. We frequented open houses constantly, did our own research, but we never felt ready or “in the know” about taking that next big step.

And so it happened that at yet another open house, we met a listing agent who was genuine, insightful, and listened to what we were looking for. Normally, as some of you have experienced already, the listing agent would shove a card in our hands and tells us to call him, but this was different. When Bob asked us if we wanted to talk more seriously to him and his partners, we took him up on his offer immediately!

And we never looked back!

Bob and Kat were the answer to questions we didn’t even know we needed to ask! They gave us great advice, told us what to look for, provided us all the information we needed to learn the process, and most importantly never rushed or tried to sell us on a property we didn’t want. They always made time for our emails, texts, calls, and visits, and knew how to resolve each and every situation that came up! For example: our Mortgage Loan Officer decided to quit his bank 4 days before our first offer was due. Not a problem for BobKat! They had an extremely professional lender ready for us the next day!

And when we finally won our house, they were there to explain every step of escrow process! Providing constant guidance and advice on each contract, disclosure, and timeline detail was immensely valuable to us as it’s so easy to get lost in the documentation! I like to think that my husband and I are smart and organized people, but we honestly could not have done it without them. Even now that we have moved in, they are still a fountain of advice and support, providing us referrals for every house situation that has come up!

If you are getting serious about buying a home and you need someone you can trust, you’ve really came to the right place! We love our new home and we could not have done it without Team Bedbury!

A big thanks to Kat, Bob and Ali at Team Bedbury. Having worked with you back in 2010 on the purchase of a home, there was no question that you would be the team to sell my condo. The condo had been a rental for 13+ years so I knew it needed some repair and updating to appeal to today’s home buyers. Thank you for your guidance, resources, coordination and professionalism throughout the entire process. There is NO POSSIBLE WAY we could have sold this place over asking and with multiple offers without you. Every dollar spent was capitalized on in the sale. When we came on the market in the Fall, there were already 2 other identical units for sale in the complex that had been sitting for weeks without activity. The rainy weather also posed a threat to a low Open House attendance. After the transformation to my condo was done, it was clear to see why it sold and the other condos didn’t. Added to its appeal was the presentation you designed during the Open Houses. As I walked into the front door after an Open House you hosted, the experience was so inviting. There were drinks, goodies in the kitchen, a stunning multiple-page brochure to skim through, your scented signature candle (amazing), and 2 agents, Bob and Kat, smiling and at times shaking out umbrellas. The Open Houses were miraculously well attended despite that bad weather. Your reputation of creating a buzz was evident. I know people have come to “Expect More!” when they work with you guys and that is what got the job done. Thank You so very much!

When Team Bedbury first came to meet with us in our condo that we were trying to sell, I was instantly impressed with their preparation. Bob handed us a hard cover book, that had analysis on comps, information on recent sales of comparable properties, charts that showed relevant metrics, etc. All of this before ever stepping foot in our home and before the first discussion about them representing us.

Bob and Kat are very detail oriented and compliment each other’s skills, making them a fantastic team. They always answered every question we had for them, no matter how small the question may be. And believe me, I may have had a few dumb questions. They always made time for us and kept us updated, every step of the way. Bob, Kat & Ali always went above & beyond.


Team Bedbury always prioritized our schedule and made things as easy as possible for us. They have an excellent team of contractors who did a great job painting, cleaning and staging our place. We loved the colors so much, that we’re using it for our next place.

Above all, Bob, Kat & Ali are wonderful people. They love what they do and it shows. They helped sell our condo and buy our single family home. We enjoyed working with them and would highly recommend them to buy or sell your home.

"We are so grateful that our paths crossed that fall day."

We met Bob and Kat over five years ago at an open house they were showing, just as we were starting to look for our first home. The condo had the smell of fresh baked cookies with music playing in the background and Kat offered to help us with any questions. It was unlike any open house we had ever attended.  The condo wasn't a fit for us, but the open house left quite an impression on us. Later we decided to contact Bob and Kat to work with us to find our first home. They knew our budget and that we wanted something to put our stamp on. In just a few weeks a house in Redwood City came back on the market that was a perfect match. We got an exclusive showing before it was even relisted and put an offer in right away.  Fast forward five years... We fixed up that house tremendously, had two beautiful children and are ready for our next adventure.

 

Throughout those five years, we kept in touch with Bob and Kat. As we were fixing the house, we asked for their input on some of things we could do to update the house and they stopped by for a visit. They congratulated us on our marriage and the birth of our two children and when we decided to move closer to family in Southern California, we called Bob and Kat to share the news. Together they really helped us put the finishing touches on our house, prepping it to sell for max market value. They helped us work with a great landscaper, painter, and stager. Then Bob and Kat really delivered with an amazing open house with a band and gelato to boot! It was a huge hit! Their marketing materials (handouts and website) were perfect and made the house really shine. We accepted an offer two weeks after listing and have now happily settled into our new home in SoCal. During the closing process, Bob and Kat would keep us updated and let us know that everything is on schedule. We never felt like just a business transaction to Bob and Kat. They genuinely care and work their hardest to make sure that at the end of the day, you get what you want and are happy. We are so grateful that our paths crossed that fall day. Thanks so much for helping our dreams come true.

"We had the creme de la creme team."

We had a realtor before Bob and Kat Bedbury. We spent every weekend summer 2016 going to open houses, nearly 100 of them. After making over a dozen offers without success, we felt there was very little hope we’d ever buy a home on the SF peninsula. At times, even when our offers were among the top contenders, the decisions were not made in our favor. The whole process was grueling and disappointing.

 

Enter Bob and Kat Bedbury. We had an initial meeting with them at their office, where they first impressed us with their experience, then their description of how they will present an offer when representing the buyer: they make the offer in person and they refuse to give up. We thought, okay, we will give them a try. They also told us that most of their recent buyers buy a home with them on their first offer. We thought that is not possible! Soon after this meeting, Kat referred us to their top lender from Wells Fargo and we began the process of submitting necessary paperwork for pre-approval.

 

Two weeks later, we found our dream house at an open house. Turns out, the seller’s agent knew the Bedbury team very well and gave Kat a call while we were there. We thought, wow, we’ve never received this kind of attention before. Within an hour, the wheels went into motion. Within 24 hours, we submitted our offer. In our conversations discussing details of the offer, it was clear Bob and Kat had our best interest in mind. They did not push us to go up as much as possible, they did not even encourage us to remove all the contingencies. This was unbelievable to us as we thought we’d need to be far more aggressive to win the deal. The next morning, Bob and Kat called with the good news. We were totally stunned and floored. Just like they said, we won the deal on our first offer with them. There was no doubt that we got the house because of Kat and Bob’s network, knowledge of the market and reputation. We finally understood why they are top realtors in the area.

 

Our amazement did not stop there. Bob and Kat bring to the table a whole team of experts. The lender they recommended then brought with her a whole team of experts as well. Once the offer was accepted, the whole loan process was a breeze. We couldn’t believe it. We’ve gone through the process of obtaining loans in the past and had distressful memories of the 30 days of escrow, where getting the lender to perform on time was always a nail biter. Not this time. We had the creme de la creme team. We could not recommend the Bedbury team more highly.

To anyone interested in Buying or Selling a Home

In the latter part of 2014 we began to seriously consider leaving the South Bay where we were living (Campbell/West San Jose) and moving back to the Peninsula area where Rebecca had previously lived (San Mateo).  We were intererested in any of the towns from Redwood City (south) to Burlingame (North).

 

In the earliest stages of this process Rebecca was doing some preliminary “checking out” of homes in San Carlos and happened to see a brochure with Bob and Kat’s name.   We didn’t have a realtor yet so (among others) she checked them out.  They were so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and confident they could meet our needs we decided to give them a try, to first find a new house for us.  We had special requests (e.g. homes to fit several health and other requirements) and they listened and tailored what was available to both our price range and requirements. Throughout 2015 they were our true partners—checking in with us as much as we liked, listening as we fine-tuned our search, giving timely information that was on point, advice and perspective when that’s what we wanted, and making us feel this wasn’t just a business transaction, but an advocacy.  We could tell they would not rest (!) until we had the right home.  Our requirements meant extra care had to be put into culling the type of home we wanted and needed from the (relatively small) inventory available in our designated geographic preference.  By years end we found the right house and beat out several other bids for the beautiful home in Belmont we now call ours.  We were very excited!   And when you buy a home with the Bedbury’s you also get lots of TLC and goodies after the sale that make you feel very welcome in your new place and neighborhood. I won’t spoil the surprise (s), but we had never seen any other realtors do what they did after the sale, and we’ve bought and sold many homes over our 30 plus years living in the Bay area.   

 

But the story doesn’t end there.  After the first El Nino rains in late 2015 (that ended our 4 year drought) some serious deficiencies that had not shown up in any inspection or disclosures appeared.  Bob and Kat again became our partners in helping rectify the situation.  This went beyond the normal call, but that’s’ what they do.  Because we were so happy with how they had represented us and helped find the lovely home we’re in now, we also asked them to help sell our old home.  They put on a killer open house in the South Bay and in one weekend found buyers for our home and got us well over our asking price.  They had again rewarded our faith and trust in their abilities by also helping us close escrow ahead of schedule and see that all the financial details were covered.

 

We highly recommend Bob and KatBedbury as realtors who will get the job of buying and/or selling your house accomplished and in all the ways necessary to meet your expectations and needs.  And they’ll do it in a way that makes your interactions focused and caring.   They each provide their own areas of expertise after years of experience.  Together, they are quite formidable—the kind of combined strength we think any prospective client would want on their side when tackling the notable challenges of the Bay Area housing market.

"We could rely on their high standards of integrity, kindness and honesty."

As a retired couple who had lived in our beloved Palomar Park home for 28 years, when it came time to sell our home, we found ourselves in a difficult situation.  We had been out of the housing market for so long, that all the rules had changed.  In addition, due to recent illnesses for both of us, our energy was low – how would we tackle all the updating and some remodel work that needed to be done on the house at a time when the local real estate market was ‘hot’ and good contractors hard to find?  We were way out of our depth, and quite nervous about selling our home.

 

We first met Bob and Kat at one of their wonderful Open House’s in the neighborhood, and were so impressed with the spotless and impeccable home and the friendly, open atmosphere they presented.  When we sat down with them, we found them congenial, plain-spoken and clear -- and they came with wonderful local references who we knew well and trusted.   We liked them initially, and then as we came to know them better, we found that we could rely on their high standards of integrity, kindness and honesty.  In our experience, they treated everyone involved with courtesy, professionalism and integrity.

Kat and Bob helped us with every aspect of preparing our home for sale.  They were patient with explanations, very helpful with excellent resources – painters, gardeners, stagers, contractors – who could showcase our home with beautiful and impressive results at reasonable cost and timeframe.  They anticipated and prevented problems, followed up on innumerable details, and assisted with contractor communication as needed.  Their extensive experience in the local market gives them an eagle eye as to decisions that affect what buyers really want in a home – down to details on lighting and appliances that make the final result so very appealing.  They helped us decide on a reliable buyer with an offer that far exceeded what we expected, and needless to say, we were thrilled!

 

Both Bob and Kat went way beyond expectations in so many ways, saving us money and time in the process.  This included resolving issues to avoid additional payment when a subcontractor ‘s work had to be redone, using their influence to expedite a slow lender, and caring for our home and preventing damage during El Nino’s historic downpours after we had moved out.  Their communication was superb throughout – we heard from them at every detailed point until issues were resolved -- and always caring, positive, clear and friendly.  We came to be very fond of both Bob and Kat, as well as feeling deep respect for their skills, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time together.  Needless to say, we recommend them very highly!

"We soon found out how good of a team Bob and Kat were."

Buying a house for the first time is scary and stressful. Buying a house in the Bay Area, is down right horrifying! When we started this journey we had no idea what we were doing. We wanted a single family home or a townhouse, and in a great neighborhood with in our budget. Bob and Kat were recommended to us by our parents. At first we were skeptical, because we were already talking with a friend and had been looking; but we soon found out how good of a team and realtors Bob and Kat were. We sat down with Bob and Kat, they gave us a ton of information on our budget, and what we would be able to purchase. After their fantastic presentation to us, we left their office feeling confident, and full of hope that purchasing our home would now go from a dream to a reality.

 

Within a week we had received several emails from Bob and Kat for our first open houses. Since then Bob and Kat were in constant communication with us, all the way up until the final closing date or our now home. With their help, guidance, and good old fashion hard work, we were able to find our prefect townhouse. Even better it was in a wonderful neighborhood, and within our budget. Bob and Kat were amazing and with us every step of the way! They were honest and knowledgable, which made us feel confident that we were going in the right direction. Not only did Bob and Kat help us find our amazing home, but they became our friends.

 

We will never forget the amazing hard work they did for us, and bringing our dream of homeownership to a reality. If you are looking for the dream team of realtors, look no further then Bob and Kat!

"I am so glad I chose Team Bedbury!"

Deciding to sell my family home was a big decision. There were sentimental and monetary issues as well as market timing. My home was leased for many years so I new it would require a "refresh" before marketing. In selecting a realtor I wanted active agents but mostly I wanted to find someone with high standards of honesty and integrity. After going to several open homes I kept coming across the Bedburys open houses that seemed so special and after several discussions with them I decided they should be the ones! Right from the start Kat put a schedule together of all that had to be done prior to the first open house. She was tough and kept things moving constantly reminding me that we shouldn't miss our target date. With her inspiration we were able to complete a mini remodel within our timeframe and the house just looked so great. I don't think I could have gotten this accomplished without her motivation!


With the house staged and after a few open houses we were able to select the right buyer that could work with us on a 1031 exchange. It was perfect, an amazing sales price, and perfect buyer. Everything went so smooth with the sale.Within a short time frame after close of escrow I turned again to Bob and Kat to help me with the purchase of a replacement property in my exchange. Again with their patience and expertise we were able to close in time on a great property not too far away. With their long tenure and years of working with so many professionals they were able to provide contacts with the highest quality services for loans and in this case a 1031 exchange specialist. My purchase went just as smooth as the prior sale even though I was nervous about an exchange.

In thinking about my decision to go with Team Bedbury it was taking a chance because I did not know them that well at the time but they were as I hoped for so honest and had the highest standards and that they made a commitment to me and never faltered. I can say now that we are close friends. I am so glad I chose "Team Bedbury" because they are just that, all the years of their knowledge and time tested relationships of so many professionals that you get the very best of each of them in one great team. Thank you Bob and Kat and Team Bedbury!

"The best part though was their level of care..."

We met Bob & Kat while already represented by a buyer's real estate agent that we were increasingly displeased with and while checking out a house B&K were selling.  Our previous agent, never once showed up to tour a house with us or on our behalf.  Our first experience with a realtor when we bought our first home was a horrible experience as well. In fact, combined with some other personal issues, it really got to be too much and we withdrew from searching for a home for nearly a year. 

 

We ended up passing on the house that Bob & Kat were selling but hired them as our agent instead. They in fact did help us narrow our house desires, and more importantly, convinced us not to bid on certain houses when our emotions ran rampant. They were always available night and day when we reached out, helped identify any house we would like, ran searches for us, previewed houses for us, were available to visit houses at 7:00 AM, wrote up multiple offers. Advised us on how to handle the multiple bid process. We also ended up hiring their entire team- lender, title company, etc. All of them worked really well together. In general, they got us the house we wanted at the price we were willing to pay for it. We were very happy with it.  Not everything is going to be perfect, and issues did come up, but they were pretty close to perfect.

 

The best part though was their level of care. We got birthday wishes, house anniversary cards, calls to check in on us, invites out, and in general, a team that really cares about you as a person, not just as a client. 

That says a lot to us.

"They were both so charming and not hitting us with a hard sell."

Trying to find your way into home ownership in the Bay Area is daunting at best!  After two years of searching and chatting with many agents along the way, we met Bob and Kat at one of their open houses.  The property was a major handyman special.  The place was a frenzy of activity with new families hoping to enter the market; developers rubbing their hands together anticipating the guaranteed return on investment; and Tech geeks looking for a convenient place to commute from.  The competition was crazy.  We had a great conversation about the current market and how exhausting it can be for new buyers.  They were both so charming and not hitting us with a hard sell.  Both my husband and I appreciated their relaxed style and decided to keep their contact information for future reference.

 

A few months later we decided to contact Team Bedbury and talk business.  With charm and a strong business sense, we knew we had chosen the perfect team to represent us.With genuine care and guidance, Bob and Kat lead us through two offers.  Even though they warned us that our top offer probably wouldn’t be enough, they supported us in our decision to move forward.  Of course they were right.  Both properties went 30% over asking.  Some folks just need to experience the loss of the chase before they truly believe how crazy this market is.  We were those folks. Lucky for us, another property came onto the market that filled most of our checklist.  With an awesomely smart strategy we closed a deal on a fabulous Redwood City home.  It was a good thing we were ready to listen to Bob and Kat’s advise.  They even stopped us from going “all-in” and saved us some money.  For them it wasn’t about getting rich off our deal, it was about making sure we were happy with our purchase.  Could not have asked for anything more.  They will get our referrals and our business in the future.

 

Thanks Bob and Kat

"It is safe to say that we would not have been able to purchase our dream home without their substantial help."

We recently had the pleasure of working with Kathryn and Bob Bedbury for the purchase of our first house. They were both AMAZING to work with, and we give them our highest recommendations. It is safe to say that we would not have been able to purchase our dream home without their substantial help. We would work with them any time again.

Below are some particular points where Kat and Bob truly excelled:

Success

First and foremost, Kat and Bob made our house hunt a success. We worked with them for a few months and they helped us (a) to find our dream house, and (b) to get it. In Silicon Valley’s seller market, this is already an accomplishment by itself. In our case this is particularly noteworthy because the seller’s agent made the process quite bumpy. Nevertheless, Kat and Bob managed to navigate through everything flawlessly.

Availability, Commitment

Kat and Bob were always available - for questions on our side, consultation, and of course to drive the process itself. Both of us still get nightmares from imaging their work hours, but they do everything to make things happen, and always put the client’s interest first. This is particular important in the Bay Area’s fast paced marked where buyers need to act very fast.

Pleasure to work with

As first time buyers, we had heard many scary stories from friends and colleagues about their realtor experiences. That was not the case for us with Kat and Bob. We genuinely enjoined working with them, and they made the whole process - which can sometimes be quite stressful - an enjoyable experience.

Knowledgeable

 When we started our house buying process, we didn’t have more knowledge than the average first time buyer. Kat and Bob guided us through the process extremely well. At each step we felt we were in control and that we were not rushing into anything thanks to their excellent guidance.

Honest

 Last but not least, they are honest. This again is a really critical quality in a realtor for first-time buyers. On many issues we had to trust their judgement and advice. For instance, we had set our eyes on another house before, in which we saw great potential and were willing to make an offer on it. After some thorough research, Bob and Kat cautioned us about that house and presented us with some facts and red flags about it that we had not discovered. Rather than going for the easy money and proceed to the next client, they wanted us to be truly happy with our purchase. And they succeeded in that.

In summary, we can not recommend Kat and Bob Bedbury highly enough. We would (and have already) recommend them to any friends and family, and would not hesitate to work with them again in the future.

Many thanks Kat and Bob!

We met Bob and Kat just about four years ago, my husband and I had just relocated to the area. We both grew up in Texas and then moved to Singapore after getting married, then a new position for my husband landed us here, in the Bay area. Our plan all along was to move back to the United States, buy a house and start a family. What we didn’t realize is how crazy the housing market was going to be.

 

We set up meetings with recommended realtors in the area to find a realtor for us. While we were interviewing other potential realtors, we visited open houses and on one such visit, we stumbled upon Bob and Kat. We were instantly greeted by Bob who was standing outside and he said “Welcome Home!”. I immediately felt welcome and we walked through the door and were greeted by Kat, she was so bubbly and nice and offered us warm, home-made cookies and information on the home. We were brand new to this process and she asked us if we had the disclosures on the house (we didn’t even know what that meant at this point). I think she picked up on this and asked us about our search and learned that we did not have a realtor yet, she gave us their card and marketing materials and we were on our way. We loved that house, but it was not the one for us in the end. What I loved more was Bob and Kat, there was something so genuine and honest about them and that was so refreshing.

 

We interviewed Bob and Kat and the deal was done, they didn’t even begin to compare to other realtors that we spoke too, they go above and beyond in a market where that is not required anymore. They always make the houses look impeccable and add a little something extra, gelato, pizza, etc. I’ve walked into open houses where the agent just sits on the couch and doesn’t even greet prospective buyers, because let’s be honest, the house is going to sell. I appreciate that Bob and Kat still give 110% even though they do not have to. 

 

We do not own a house (Yet!) and that is our fault, we are a couple who is very picky and who do not take decisions lightly and require time and research to make a decision. Now try to buy a house in this crazy market where offers come in a week later and you’re competing with so many others for the same house. Bob and Kat urged us to learn the neighborhoods so we could hone in on our search, they also always presented us with the facts about the market and trends and kept telling us to buy and finding really great homes for us. They told us it was only going to keep going up in price based on the current trends and if we would buy, we could build some very strong equity quickly. They were right, as we learned the market and where we wanted to buy, it was too late. Within two years, we were priced out of the areas that we wanted to live. If we had listened to Bob and Kat early on in the process, we would have a home in a neighborhood we were happy and would have made some serious equity in the process. We did make offers on homes, we were usually very last minute and over asking, but not always as aggressive as Bob and Kat would have suggested. What I appreciated was that they were always available and even at 10PM at night, would work tirelessly to get an offer in for us. They would also do everything in the power to make it an offer that would stand out, we would write a letter and they would present in person with a present if needed. We came very close on several homes, but always lost to all cash offers with zero contingencies.

 

We did end up winning a home during this process and we used Bob and Kat’s inspector and as he inspected the home, he saw a problem with the foundation that he had never seen. Newspaper and cement had been used to fill in holes in the cinder blocks and there was no way to assess the structural integrity of the foundation. We did not feel good about this and The Bedburys agreed, Kat said she had never come across this and helped us back out of the contract. I already knew they were the ones for us, but this sealed the deal. This is money lost for them and that did not matter, they truly want their clients to find a home and be happy.

 

Bob and Kat are still in our lives and still send us updates on the market and we still hope to buy a home with them. Bob and Kat came to the hospital when my daughter was born and it meant so much to us, they are truly genuinely wonderful people who care about their client’s happiness. You won’t find a harder working pair or realtor out there and hopefully you learn from our mistakes and get your foot in the door before it’s too late.

Dear Bob and Kat,

We would like to write this letter of endorsement for you to show to prospective clients, because you truly deserve it for the amazing service you have provided as our Buyer's Realtor.

As you know, we recently moved from the UK. We met Bob while he was hosting an Open House that we viewed independently, and he immediately impressed us both with his honest approach and candid view of how well that particular house would work for us, as a family. He wasn't being negative about the house, but crucially, he wasn't trying to sell it 'no matter what'. That struck a chord with us, and we took Bob up on his offer for us to interview him as a prospective buyer's realtor. Needless to say, Bob passed that interview with flying colours, with yet more honest answers to our naive questions. We can trust this guy!

We were probably not the easiest clients, if the truth be told. We had some lofty goals, and some big challenges to overcome. Specifically, we had a tight timeline (we didn't want to rent, ever), we were new in the country and didn't have any local credit history, and we had some stretch goals, such as James being able to cycle to work. The BobKat team worked with us, and connected all the right people to make a knockout team. With the A-Team in place (dynamo mortgage contact at Wells Fargo, and BobKat themselves), we set off the land a house.

Cutting an impressively short story even shorter, we landed a house that we are over the moon with, that James can cycle to work from, and were moved in within 6 weeks of meeting Bob. That might be some kind of record in the Bay Area. We secured the house despite not being the highest offer, purely because of the trust that the seller and the
seller's agent had that BobKat would be fast and easy to deal with. In the crazy Bay Area housing market, this couldn't be more important.

We don't even want to think about moving for a few years now, but when we do we know exactly who to call!

Many thanks, BobKat!

Buying a house for the first time is one of the most stressful events in one's life. Buying a house in a country you've only been living in for 5 years increase the stress level. And then, as if this weren't enough, add in the crazy and aggressive Bay Area real estate market and you've got a concoction for disaster.

 

Luckily, we were introduced to Bob and Kat by a friend who recommended them. Being completely ignorant on the workings of the real estate market in the US it was a great relief to be working with such competent agents. They are a terrific team, and you can see that one's strengths complements the other's.

 

We were expecting our second child, and were in a rush to find the perfect house before adding in a new family member. The clock was ticking and in the Bay Area hot market, we had to use the best tools to succeed in our quest. Fortunately, we started working with Bob and Kat and never regretted it.

 

We first bid on a house at the last minute, and they did a terrific job providing all the necessary requirements for us to make an offer on time. Unfortunately, we didn't get this house as it sold way above market value but we learned a ton and got acquainted with the buying process that was so foreign to us. Bob and Kat gave us clear explanations on the proceedings, but it took us a while to understand the reality of that market (sizzling hot doesn't even begin to describe it). We can say that the learning curve was a steep one, and that without them we might have made costly mistakes.

 

Bob and Kat worked around the clock to make our dream come true and never gave up, even when we had a last minute change of heart on a house. They were available by phone or email at almost any hour and if not were quick to reply. We felt during that time like we were their top priority. Talk about top notch customer service!

 

We sincerely believe that they are the difference that made us “win” the house we finally live in. Kat spent countless hours sending required paperwork while Bob made it a point to establish a great relationship with the seller's agent. They used every tool and every argument in their possession to ensure we would get what we want.  In the end, it was up between us and another offer. We believe that their work is what got us the house. With a different agent we would probably still be looking at open houses. I'm so glad we chose to work with them!

Dear Bob and Kat,

 

On behalf of our family, we would like to thank you both for your dedication and professionalism for both buying and selling our home in the Bay Area. You came to us highly recommend by friends of ours who said that your assistance and expert knowledge made it possible for them to find a home. During the home buying process, Bob and Kat helped guide our search and helped us find our Belmont home that was move-in-ready with a beautiful view. We were ready to give up in this competitive market, but Bob assured us that the right home was out there and we just needed to be patient and keep trying. Sure enough his advice was right and we found the perfect home for us. 

 

A year later we were informed that due to a job, we would need to relocate to Southern California.  We knew who to call to sell our home, Bob and Kat. Throughout the entire process to sell the home, Bob and Kat worked with us to create a time table to prepare the house for sale, and did a great job of making our home look amazing, from the interior walls to the landscape design. During this process, we were also moving and not living in the Bay Area. They worked with our hectic schedule and did a great job of looking after our home when we were not present. They have an amazing team and a wealth of knowledge.

 

Bob and Kat are dependable, dedicated, and go the extra mile for their clients. They are a great team to work with and we would highly recommend them. 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Nicholas and Ana C.,

"If you want to know what white glove service looks like from a realtor."

Several years ago when we moved from the east coast to CA,  Bob and Kat were highly recommended by family members who had purchased a home with them.  During this cross country move, we relied on the Bedburys to find us the perfect home and they did.  With their hard work and assistance, we bought our house sight unseen and to this day, that house is still our favorite one of all the homes we've lived in. The transaction became the foundation for our friendship... 

 

Over the next 5 years, we underwent renovations several times.  Each time, we consulted Bob and Kat because we valued their expert opinions.  We wanted to be sure our improvements not only satisfied our needs but would appeal to future buyers one day should we decide to sell the house (at the time we planned on this being our long term home).  They kept us in check from over-improving and really provided great insight to market trends.  We celebrated together after each renovation and I know that they enjoyed seeing the designs and changes come to life as much as we did.  Sooner than we expected, the time came for us to have to move back to the east coast.  We asked Bob and Kat to step in one last time to put the finishing touches on our home to make it shine while putting our house on the market.  They made the last mile for us as easy as possible.  Their attention to detail and making a home ready for showing is second to none.    

 

If you want to know what white glove service looks like from a realtor, the Bedburys are a perfect example of being there for you all the way.  We were very pleased and happy when we first bought our house 5 years ago, and just as happy with the services they offered throughout the years as well as during and after the sale of our house.  We're glad that we can call Bob and Kat our realtors and more importantly now, our friends.

"They are a great team and thanks to them, we were able to find our dream home."

We got introduced to Team Bedbury through a family friend of ours. They are a great team and thanks to them, we were able to find our dream home. Our first meeting was face to face where we discussed everything we were looking for in a house. Kat, Bob and Tracy noted down every single detail with a lot of care and also very patiently explained the home buying process. 

 

We were very impressed with how quickly they understood our requirements, and this reflected from the different open-houses they suggested us to look at. They have a good feel on the pulse of the market in the Bay area, and are very knowledgeable of market trends, neighborhoods, legal issues and other important pieces in the home buying process. Once we expressed an interest in a house, they were quick to react and come over to see the listing with us and point out the positives, negatives, upsides, downsides of buying that property.

 

What stands out with this team is their aggression, which is very critical to help you buy your home in this market. The moment we decided that we wanted to place an offer, the team worked really hard and and helped us place a really good offer.  We were offered an array of very competent loan agents and were given the option to choose the one we were comfortable with. 

 

The team has always given us the time and attention when we needed it. We were able to reach them at anytime via email, phone or text. We are extremely happy with the services that Team Bedbury offered us and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy/sell their property.

We were glad that we stumbled upon their open house that day. It was the most expensive free cupcake we've ever bought, but it was all worth it.

We stopped by at Bob and Kat's open house one day when we saw a cupcake van parked outside of a house. I had never seen a cupcake van at an open house. Free cupcake! And a free ice cream gift card for leaving our email address! 

 

Fast forward, we bought the second house they showed us. Most people look for months and have numerous offers rejected in this competitive housing market. We were very lucky that it took us just two hours, but it was not just luck. Kat's intuition on knowing what we were looking for helped us find the right house, and her attention to detail helped us put together a competitive offer without overstretching our budget. Bob's ability to persuade won us the house, and his attentiveness made us feel at ease when we had a million questions on verbose legal documents.

 

Before we made our first house purchase I always thought real estate agents' job was simply to find their clients houses that match their requirements. Now I know they do much more, from working with a loan officer to negotiating with the listing agent, to going over home inspection documents to advising on the offer letter. You not only need a team that is organized, but that also has extra panache that can win the bid, and that will be there to guide you through every step of the way. We felt that Bob and Kat struck the right balance of being realistic yet optimistic, assertive but not aggressive, attentive but not pestering, and with a sense of humor in case things didn't go exactly our way.

"Awesome! That’s the best word that describes Bob and Kat."

After accepting a new job offer, I was relocated with my family to the San Francisco Bay Area during the summer of 2013. We started the process of finding our new home by getting acquainted with the area and the market. After some time, we noticed how aggressive the market in the Bay Area was and decided to look for help. I met Bob and Kat at an open house in San Carlos, and was impressed with their energy, enthusiasm, and the way in which the house was presented and organized. I knew right away that they were going to be our Realtors.

 

We commenced the relationship with the Bedbury team in October 2013.  From the first meeting, we knew we were in good hands. They heard our requests and demonstrated to be very knowledgeable of the market, understanding our needs and particular situation.

 

Our house hunting began and they always kept us posted on new open houses and even pre-market showings. We placed several offers with no luck. We were worried that our relocation package was about to expire, which meant we had to make adjustments to our already tight budget. Somehow they managed to keep our hopes up by reassuring us that the right house was there. One day we toured this home, the one that you feel you belong to the moment you walk in. We placed an offer, and it didn’t go through. I was still feeling that this was the right home for me and my family. Surprisingly, about two weeks after, Bob called and told us that the original offer fell out of escrow and they were ready to accept ours! 

 

The experience was very rewarding and satisfying. With my relocation package about to expire, they went the extra mile, expediting the entire process and helping us close escrow just in time!

 

Awesome! That’s the best word that describes Bob and Kat. Words are not enough to express our deepest gratitude to them. We will definitely recommend the Bedbury team to anyone looking for a professional, caring, and excellent service!

"True to their motto, 'Your Dreams, Non-Negotiable,' Team Bedbury made our dream come true."

It all began in early 2014 when I wandered into an open house hosted by Bob & Kat Bedbury, soon to be known to us as BobKat, the leaders of Team Bedbury. Bob welcomed me and provided insight into the home they had for sale. As it turned out, it was not the home for us but was the start of quite an adventure. I mentioned to Bob that I was looking to purchase a larger home in the San Carlos/Redwood City area to house a merging “Brady Bunch” family and that I had a smaller home to sell beforehand. Bob introduced me to Kat and the rest, as they say, is history. The initial synergy just seemed right. Kat followed me to my existing home and gave me insight on what would be advisable in the way of improvements in order to put the home on the market and garner the highest price possible. She also aligned herself with my particular wants and needs in our new home, and began a search. In addition, she introduced us to their mortgage lender partner (he was amazing and always available) who would prove to be a very valuable member of Team Bedbury and our ultimate success. 

 

In the midst of our search we found a couple of homes that could have worked, put an offer on one of them, which fortunately did not work out because soon thereafter we found our ultimate dream home. Mind you that we still had work to do to place our current home on the market but we had fallen in love with our new home. Team Bedbury assured us that it could all be done and they would help us find the way to do it. 

 

We placed an offer on our dream home and came up short. Saddened, we continued our search but kept comparing everything to our ultimate love. Then one day Bob informed us that the winning offer on our dream home had fallen through. Bob suggested we follow through with our offer and I said, “We tried that and we can’t compete.” Bob’s response was, “Compete with whom?” As it turned out he was right, the home was passing through what I later termed “no-mans land” where it was no longer sold and about to be placed back on the market. Quick to respond, we submitted our offer and to our amazement, it was accepted almost as quickly. True to their motto, “Your Dreams, Non-Negotiable,” Team Bedbury made our dream come true. 

 

Then reality set in, we needed to pay for this dream. True to her word, Kat sprang into action and within a day had contractors bidding on the work at our soon-to-be former home. Given a tight budget, Kat simply made magic happen within two weeks of us walking out the door for the final time. We were on the market, with all the bells and whistles that Team Bedbury offers squarely in place and in record time. One open house weekend resulted in multiple offers in hand four days later. Team Bedbury not only recouped our investment in our former home, they exceeded our wildest expectations on the ultimate sale price. All in record time to make our dream home our reality. 

 

We can’t thank Team Bedbury enough for their efforts on our behalf. They are not only professional but also personable and we now count them among our friends. Throughout the process Team Bedbury and their extended team of industry partners were ever at the ready to receive our phone calls, respond to our texts and e-mails and generally provide advice and counsel where needed and constant reassurance. We love the “one-stop” shopping aspect of working with Team Bedbury. As busy professionals, we could never have met our professional let alone our personal goals with just an ordinary real estate agent. 

 

Kat has gone above and beyond volunteering her critical eye and valuable insight into improvements we are subsequently making to our new castle. We recommend Team Bedbury to anyone considering buying or selling a home or both.

"You have to see it to believe it. These two are unreal."

With Bob & Kat, it’s hard to even decide where to begin. For those
that don’t like to read a lot, I’ll start with the numbers. In 2 years, they 
won us a perfect starter home, sold it, and then found us our forever 
home. On the first home they guided us through the process to beat 
out 7 offers, including one that was higher and all cash. After we were 
selected as the winners, they then negotiated another $25k off the 
price for us! A year and a half later, they sold that home for us at a 
sizable amount above what we paid. Then, for our second home, in 
an absolutely ridiculous market, they won us a home that we only 
thought was possible in our wildest dreams, beating out over 30 
offers (ridiculous), where we were again not even the highest bidders! 
If you want to measure people professionally, it’s in results, so there 
you have it.

 

Now that we have that out of the way, things get a bit more personal. 
When my wife and I met Bob & Kat two years ago, never did we 
think that they would have such a huge impact on our lives. Through 
every process they were far more than Realtors to us. They were our 
friends, our support, our courage, and the drivers of our faith to keep 
pushing on. Buying a home is an emotionally taxing process mixed in 
with a bit of a wild goose chase, but through every twist and turn they 
were there right next us, powering us through. The amount of effort 
and personal sacrifice they put into our process was simply unreal, 
but that is just how they conduct business.  I could never properly 
explain how grateful we are to have them in our lives, I’m just glad 
that they are.

 

Bob & Kat are an exceptional pair that knows how to hire a fantastic 
team to support them and do things at an elite level. Everything they 
do is precise and incredibly professional. When we would go from 
home to home and interact with other Realtors, it became obvious 
that we were very fortunate to find a couple of the best out there. But 
beyond that, they are just great people. The same enthusiasm they 
put into their work they put into their private lives, going above and 
beyond to make sure that everybody around them has a smile on 
their face. You have to see it to believe it.

 

These two are unreal.

It is my pleasure to recommend the Bedbury Team as Great Bay Area Realtors.  I moved from the East Coast for work last April and was unfamiliar with the Bay Area, nor did I have much time to search for places to live, as my main focus was, and still is, my work.  I was extremely lucky that some friends knew about the Bedbury Team, and as soon as we met I realized that they clearly understood what I wanted and that I did not need to interview any other Realtors.  It was a really tough time for buyers, but Kat knew every single available property, and Bob was great with numbers; they complemented each other perfectly.  They patiently showed me many houses, and when I finally settled on one, their knowledge of the market, organizational skills, preparedness, and most importantly, negotiation skills got me the property.  I am and will always be very grateful to them for that.  The most amazing part was that even after the deal was done, they continued helping me making that place my own.  Certainly, they made the experience of buying a home a lot less stressful than it could have been considering the housing market in the Bay Area.

"If you're looking to buy a home, start with Team Bedbury."

If you’re looking to buy a home, start with Team Bedbury. We were so impressed with the attention, advice and support Bob and Kat gave us throughout the whole process. Their guidance was absolutely vital.

 

We kicked off our home search pretty nonchalantly, without the support of a Realtor. We saw open houses in what we considered to be our price range and frequently checked out Redfin, but never had much luck finding a home that spoke to us. Eventually, after too many open houses to count, my father suggested we work with Bob and Kat – although he hadn’t leveraged them as Realtors himself, he knew they were top notch. We agreed to meet with Team Bedbury, and before we even left our introductory meeting we knew they were a perfect fit for us – they know their stuff, and are so charming to top it off. They make you feel like old friends, even when you first meet.

 

Team Bedbury immediately started sending us options we hadn’t yet seen, and it didn’t take long for us to find a house we wanted to put in an offer for. And although our first offer wasn’t a winner (no fault here other than a crazy market!), we quickly moved on to the next one with some cheerful encouragement from Bob and Kat – losing out on an offer is never fun, but Bob and Kat knew just how to get us back on our feet and keep us in the ‘game’. And then it happened – on only our second offer, we won! We’ve now been in our new home for a month and are in love with it all.

We have Bob and Kat to thank for such a speedy home search, and for knowing exactly what we needed to do to get our dream first home. We absolutely recommend Team Bedbury, and know that we’ll definitely use them again.

Dear Kat and Bob, 

 

Thank you for selling our house in El Granada. As you very well know, the house had been on the market for nearly nine months with another Realtor and we had had very few visits. When I contacted you and you had visited the house, you could not understand why the house had not sold. We sat down in our living room and you explained your process to me and assured me that we would be able to sell our house within a couple of months. 

 

We followed your process to prepare and present the house. You then created your marketing plan with clear potential target buyers as well as your marketing campaign and executed it. As you had anticipated we sold the house within two months.

 

There is no better compliment that I can make than to say that you delivered on your promise.

 

With my sincere thanks and best regards,

"Honest, hardworking, smart, and feisty."

I would recommend Team Bedbury to anyone on the Peninsula buying or selling a home. Without a doubt, they are the very best. Honest, hardworking, smart, and feisty. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Bob and Kat first when we bought our home in San Carlos, and more recently when we sold our home to move closer to family in San Diego. Bob and Kat oversaw every detail of preparing our home for sale. Kat decided what work needed to be done to give us the most bang for our buck, then hired the right people for the job and personally made sure they showed up on time and completed their work. Bob and Kat had our home ready for market in a matter of weeks to ensure we put out our For Sale sign at just the right time in the market. Our home took multiple offers within days of an incredibly successful open house and it sold for well over asking – for much more than we were expecting! My husband and I could not be happier. The only thing we would change is to transfer Team Bedbury to San Diego so they can help us buy our next home. Thanks Bob and Kat!!!

We were unsure whether to sell or rent our house, and Bob and Kat showed us the strengths and weaknesses of our options. Whatever resources we needed to prepare our house for sale and to move, they gave us recommendations for great people to take care of all our needs. When we were hesitant to proceed, Kat was always patient, and she alerted us to sell when the market was hot. Within a few days, we had an all-cash offer with no contingencies and at more than our asking price. Because of the Bedburys' great knowledge, advice, and attention to detail, our house sold for much more than we would have thought was possible. Thank you Bob and Kat for a great selling experience, and for being honest and true professionals.

This is JP and LS and we would like to give a recommendation to the Bedbury team.  They helped purchase a property in the Bay Area under very challenging circumstances. This was accomplished under a climate of low inventory and multiple offers... (basically you guessed it, a seller's market). The Bedbury team was very professional, they have been in this business a long time and you will be in good hands if you decide to utilize their service. Thanks Bob, Kat, and Rachael... great work!

"...Our dreams truly were 'non-negotiable.'"

There are many fine real estate professionals in the Bay Area, but Bob and Kathryn Bedbury are truly exceptional. Two years ago my husband and I met them at an open house, and while the particular home they were showing was not for us, they took notice of who we were, and what we were looking for, which was a private retreat in a quiet setting, surrounded by views and native plants, only minutes from our work – a fantasy from our perspective!  Kat stayed in touch and true to form, kept reminding us that our dreams truly were “non-negotiable.” 

 

We were faced with a somewhat daunting task. After all, we were buyers in a seller’s market, where multiple cash offers, the new norm, would surely trump our sincere, but more realistic offer.  But Bob and Kat thrive on challenge. They showed us home after home, noted our reactions, and listened to us. All the while they refined their understanding of who we are, and exactly what we were hoping for.  Meanwhile, they put us in touch with their financial team, and helped us get our paperwork in order, so we were prepared to submit an eventual offer. Then one day we all realized we’d found “the one,” and Team Bedbury moved into high gear.

 

In the blur of the next few days we had been preapproved for a loan, prepared an offer, and written a letter to the owners, hoping to convince them that we were the perfect caretakers of their family’s home. In the end, thanks to Team Bedbury’s professionalism, experience, wisdom and strategic support, we won the home over two very competitive bids including that proverbial “all cash” offer. 

 

With Bob and Kat, we’ve come to believe that anything is possible with the right team in our corner. And as every good story should end, we are happy to call the Bedburys our friends and our neighbors in this new phase of our lives in the home of our dreams.

"What began as a business relationship has developed into a friendship – what more could we hope for in such an important business transaction as selling our home?"

We never expected selling our house would be enjoyable, let alone fun, until we met Team Bedbury!  Kat and Bob, or “BobKat,” as we affectionately call them, made the process of selling our home in San Carlos easy, swift, and worry-free – and yes, fun! Some of our fondest memories of this Spring include our work together making the decisions and taking the actions that led to the successful sale of our home.

 

Bob and Kat made it their work to know and understand us, providing information when we needed it, and encouragement when it was required. They anticipated every next step, and always took the time to explain the process, so we were never surprised or misinformed. Kat’s keen sense of design, timing, hospitality, and just plain fun, coupled with Bob’s steady support keeping the bottom line in mind, kept us moving forward to what ended up being a quick sale. They celebrated with us at the finish line.

 

The Bedburys are surrounded by effective partners. Their administrative assistant Rachel Munoz was always at the ready: cheerful, helpful, and timely with details behind the scenes. They have a bevy of helpful contractors who seamlessly moved in and out of our home, preparing it to be at its best for showings. Their marketing materials and events were truly amazing. We are still hearing from our enthusiastic neighbors about the Gelato party that was thrown on our patio, that drew in scores of potential buyers at our open house.

"...The marketing material made the house look fantastic."

We’ve known Kat and Bob for almost 2 years. Team Bedbury negotiated a great deal when we purchased a new home last year and we didn’t hesitate to have them as our listing agents for our old house this year. We had intended to rent the house out for 10 years but with the market skyrocketing we broached the idea of selling it to Kat. Once we gave Kat the go ahead she swung into full gear. While our tenants were still in the house Kat arranged and completed as much of the inspection and “fixing up” work as she could. She was always sensitive to the needs of our renters. She had a lot of recommendations for things to fix and redo and we started to get nervous at the mounting costs. However, we decided to trust her professional opinion especially in light of the open houses we saw and the quick sales she was getting with other homes. Kat dealt with all of the scheduling and identification of the contractors. In the end we shouldn’t have worried at all, the house looked beautiful. The photographer that Kat brought in produced outstanding photos and the marketing material made the house look fantastic. Although the house looked beautiful we still had to deal with the tough parking situation in Palomar Park. Team Bedbury came up with a novel solution, to run golf carts from Clifford School to the house. This also turned out to be a great idea. The first, and only, open house was a huge success and delivered 6 offers in 4 days, we accepted one of them. The price we received for the house was beyond expectations and more than made up for the cost of the fixing up.

 

Through it all Kat was very responsive, returning calls/answering emails/texts immediately. The entire Team is very professional and a pleasure to deal with. While we probably won’t need them as Realtors soon, they will certainly remain our friends. Our best advice to prospective sellers, use Team Bedbury and take their recommendations!

"Bob and Kat were there every step of the way. You can't ask for more than that."

Bob and Kat Bedbury are simply amazing Realtors. They possess a very high energy level and outstanding work ethic. And their support team is equally high energy and fun to be associated with too. 

 

We consider ourselves to be so lucky that our neighbor, who knew of Bob & Kat from her own personal real estate experience, sent them over to talk with us when selling the home in which I was raised was just a mere thought. We were in no hurry to list the home till the market recovered. But Bob & Kat kept in touch offering bits of advice along the way. 

 

Our home needed some substantial retrofitting in order to get ready for market. As it ultimately turned out, Bob & Kat had all the resources we would need at their fingertips. They made recommendations on general contractors painters, hardwood floor installers, roofers, etc. Once work was underway, Team Bedbury ensured it was done to their exacting standards. They also showed why their extended team so enjoys working for them as they ensured the workers always had refreshments and cold drinks at the ready.

 

I was not only impressed with the collaborative way in which they worked with the vendors but also how well their input was received regarding improvements that could be made that would eventually make a difference to a potential buyer. Bob and Kat were there every step of the way.  You can't ask for more than that.

 

And of course the staging of a home makes a big difference and is worth every penny you put into it. Bob and Kat had the right people to do the staging and the home ultimately looked beautiful. 

 

And without a doubt, our modest investment in the preparation of the home for market returned huge dividends over what we could have received without that minimal investment. 

 

Then there's the "Open House" and nobody does it better than "Team Bedbury."  Bob and Kat could teach a class on how to do it the right way. For our home they brought in their gelato Italian ice cream partner to dispense gelato to the visiting guests touring the home during the open house.

 

We now consider ourselves to be Team Bedbury’s biggest fans and we never stop talking about how skillful they are and what a pleasure it was having them represent us. We believe they set the bar so high they are in a league of their own. They would be the only team we would recommend to anyone to either buy or sell a home. They offer nothing less than 110%.

 

So we offer a heartfelt thank you Team Bedbury for all you did for us.

I had a pleasure of working with the Bedbury team, both where they represented me as a Buyer and also recently again when I sold my property.  So I have a first hand experience of their equally great skills in representing Buyers and Sellers.

 

They have what it takes to get the deal done in a highly professional and effective way.  They are the most organized team I have met, and you can completely rely on them getting things done and deliver results.  Due to their efforts, knowledge and organizational skills both the purchase of my home and also the sale of another property I had each closed in 30 days with no surprises or delays. 

 

When we were buying a house Kat understood exactly what we were looking for and helped us find a house that was truly perfect!  With her high energy and amazing attention to detail she did not leave any stone unturned to make sure that the house closed quickly and we were there right before the holidays, as we hoped.

 

When I was selling my property, Kat and Bob led me trough the whole process.  They brought a team of skilled people to get the house ready for sale, suggested various improvements and organized beautiful staging.  As a result, I had 3 great offers within one week of putting the property on the market.

 

I can say based on my own personal experience that anyone who chooses the Bedbury team as his or her real estate agent would not be disappointed.

"Bob and Kat are patient, easy to work with, and extremely knowledgeable. They go the extra mile and take joy in helping others succeed."

We found Bob and Kat rather accidentally through one of their neighbors. Unknowingly we had been driving through their neighborhood in search of a property. We noticed a woman on the street and we stopped to discuss the property with her. She almost immediately suggested that we contact Kat & Bob, because they had so much combined knowledge of the area.

 

At that time, we had already viewed many open houses on our own, and had even met a few agents along the way that we were considering for our own. That is, until we met the Bedburys. Kat’s neighbor gave us her telephone number and we called her immediately. Kat returned our phone call very quickly. Immediately we were surprised and impressed by Kat’s knowledge of the area and also of the real estate market in our area. She didn’t hold back her knowledge or even suggest that we sign any type of contract with her. Instead she just jumped in and helped out.

 

We were blown away by how warm, friendly, and open she was with us. We felt an instant comfort level with her and we hadn’t even met her in person. We felt so comfortable that we requested an in‐person appointment to meet her and her husband Bob. It was at that meeting that our journey really began.

 

We left our initial meeting feeling quite confident that we had found a good Realtor team. In fact, we were so confident with Bob and Kat that we went to see an open house that afternoon, decided we loved it, and promptly emailed Bob and Kat that we were ready to make our first offer. It was fairly clear that the house was extremely popular and was going to go for a price significantly over our budget; however Bob and Kat were supportive and encouraging and did not even try to talk us out of making an offer that we felt comfortable making.

 

Since this was our first home purchase Bob and Kat suggested we make an offer and they would lead us through the process even though this particular house, with its popularity, was going above listing and beyond our reach. They loaded us up with information and walked us step by step through the contracts. They shared their strategies and offered their expert opinions on how to position the offer for success. We didn’t win the first one, but no fault to Bob or Kat. This one was beyond our budget and way above asking price.

 

Bob and Kat are patient, easy to work with, and extremely knowledgeable. They go the extra mile and take joy in helping others succeed. We really came to appreciate this when we made an offer on our second house. We bid way under asking (despite their recommendation) and yet they stood by us and fought for us. Kat presented our offer and was so appealing that they actually considered our offer even with a higher priced offer on the table. Kat, however, presented our low offer with confidence and we were once again impressed with their commitment to our endeavors.

 

On the third try, we were successful. However, the road to actually acquiring this house was long and Bob and Kat were there for us every step of the way. Although we did not have the highest offer on this house, Bob worked hard with the selling agent to ensure our position as the “backup offer”. These efforts were above and beyond the basic requirements, and Bob’s dedication again surpassed our expectations. As luck would have it, the winning bid fell through and our backup offer was accepted on the house. The Bedburys encouraged us to have a second inspection done, and this inspection raised some concerns that had been previously overlooked. Because of these concerns, we spent several weeks working with the Bedburys negotiating a reduced purchase price with the sellers. This was a very stressful and tedious process, and both Bob and Kat were very supportive and communicative during this process. They made sure that we were informed of every new development as soon as possible, and that we were comfortable with each step that was taken. In the end, we were able to work out a deal that made everyone happy and most importantly we now have a house that we love for a price that was within our budget.

 

Team Bedbury is a recipe for success. We highly recommend Bob & Kat to anyone looking for a Realtor team with a wealth of knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile on your behalf. We are confident that Bob and Kat are one of the best Realtor teams on the Peninsula.

 

Thank you, Team Bedbury, for being so amazing. We cannot thank you enough!

"So if you’re looking for a Realtor that will work her tail off for you, ask her about the boots in the corner and the home with the incredible view…"

After watching us overcome more obstacles than anyone could possibly imagine in preparing their childhood home for sale, one of the trustees of 606 Palomar Drive felt compelled to not only write us a letter of recommendation, but to write it in the form of a poem commemorating our efforts. We thought you would enjoy.

 

The boots in the corner have quite a story to tell…

Of a Realtor named Kathryn who I have come to know so well

 

She’s passionate about her job of selling homes for her clients

And believes in offering disclosures so buyers won’t get defiant                                                       

She has endless amounts of energy, along with the vision to match

For presenting her homes in such a way, that they will quickly be snatched

 

But December of 2012 proved to be quite a different season

With the listing of 606 Palomar being the main reason

 

She worked in the owner’s absence, directing the facelift of the old adobe and tile

And during the initial showings, everyone’s reaction was a big smile

 

No detail went unnoticed in planning her grand open house & tour

There was music and food and full color brochures…adding a touch of her magic for sure

 

But God had his own plans, for the home with the incredible view

And soon Kat was finding herself wondering what the heck to do

 

The rain had started falling and then the storm was underway

The house wasn’t ready to handle the deluge coming its way

 

Kat had never found herself in this position before

Wondering how to protect the home and its newly painted floor

 

The story has a good ending…that of dedication and not giving in

It’s a testament to Kat’s character, her passion and her desire to win

 

Her high heels and strive for perfection were certainly put to the test

And during the worst of the worst she didn’t allow herself to rest

 

She is unbelievably resilient and has taken everything in stride

And what she was able to accomplish should fill her heart with pride

 

So if you’re looking for a Realtor that will work her tail off for you

Ask her about the boots in the corner and the home with the incredible view…

 

Thank you Kat and Team Bedbury for going above and beyond in the sale of our parent’s home.

We had always heard that buying a house is the most stressful thing you will ever do in your adult life. Many times we glanced at each other stating, “this is too easy, something must be wrong,” and waited for the other shoe to drop. Lucky for us, it never did...

 

We first met Kat & Bob at an open house to die for; with drop-dead gorgeous views and a perfect layout for a just-getting-started family, we wanted it. Badly. Come to find out...so did everyone else on the Peninsula looking for a house. And so our journey began with the Bedburys taking us under their wings and guiding us thru the obstacle course to buying our first home. We had no idea what we were doing, or what we were in for, so we did the best we could with information from the internet and family and friends who had been thru the process before. But in the end, we didn’t need any of that. We just needed to listen to our gut, our hearts, and the Bedburys.

 

We went to a plethora of open houses, many accompanied by Bob or Kat and even made a few offers on the ones that nearly met our expectations of what we were hoping to have in our first home. “Nearly,” because there were always those discussions that went something along the lines of how great the kitchen was, but how not-so-great the neighborhood was. And so we would put together our package and sign some documents and have the conversations with Bob or Kat about how much we wanted to offer. They knew the market all too well, and would give us their best guess on what our odds were... and they were right. Every. Single. Time. We were never truly heartbroken when we discovered we didn’t get a home, because none of those homes were really the one for us. Bob and Kat told us several times about the story of their journey and the “feeling” you have to have when purchasing a home. We hadn’t had that feeling yet and really wondered if we ever would...

 

And then we found it. A sunny Sunday afternoon in Half Moon Bay, we stumbled upon The One. We were prepared to hand over all our savings and beyond to make sure our family could be a part of the community, the neighborhood and live in the perfect house for us. We called up Bob and made an offer way out of our comfort zone. And then the most amazing thing happened... he said he could get it for less than what we wanted to offer for the house! We were nervous, because we knew that if we lost this one, we would grieve for some time. In the end, our gut and our heart reminded us to trust Bob and let him lead the way.

 

When we received the call on Veteran’s Day that our offer with VA loan was accepted for the house, we nearly jumped on the couch and acted like kids in a candy store right then and there. We weren’t scared or nervous as we thought we’d be... we were joyous beyond words.

 

Running into Bob & Kat that March afternoon 8 months before we purchased our first home was no mistake. And now as we sit in our living room, writing this letter, we wholeheartedly thank them for the peace and joy they have brought to us by helping us find Our Home and for guiding us truthfully, honestly, and kindly, every single step of the way.

Good Evening Bob & Kathryn,

 

Jesse was telling Andre (contractor) earlier today that I was pretty stubborn about the kitchen remodel, the flooring and even the staging.  Listening to him, I couldn’t even believe he was talking about me.

 

He said I fought both of you ALL THE WAY… I really find this hard to believe because looking back I thought all of these ideas belonged to me.  I even heard that I fought the inspections and that is just what this email is about. 

 

How professional your practice is and how someone represented by your firm is damn lucky.   I know that now. All those freakin disclosures, disclosure this and disclosure that… I wanted to scream screw these disclosures. 

 

Being on the other side of the fence now… we can readily see why it is so important.  Here we are, the 11th hour, they’ve accepted our bid, we’ve gotten our hopes up and have begged to see the paperwork/disclosures and the agent for our new out-of-area home is camping and out of cell phone range. She is most entitled to have a life but get this done first. We are not liking what’s up with our potential new home, she never disclosed any of this… her good time is more important and now that SHE THINKS it’s in the bag we are finding out the real poop on the property.

 

So you’ve made a believer out of me and I take my hat off to you both.

"If it were not for her, we would not have found our dream house... He was our rock and eventually helped us secure our dream home."

There is no better team than the Bedburys!

 

We first met Kat at a random open house and fell in love with how she represented the property. She was also very professional and easy to talk to. After a quick chat, she offered to assist us with our first-time home buying experience. From that day, she helped guide us into finding our dream home. It was definitely not a quick process, but Kat stuck with us during the whole thing. It was quite a learning experience.

 

Kat showed us wonderful (and expensive) homes and also the fixer-upper (more affordable) homes. More importantly, she gave her honest opinion about each house. She could see where the potential was and also the downfalls. This insight guided us into finding our right home.

 

After working with her for a few weeks, Kat started to pick up on what we liked and would recommend houses that she thought we would be interested in. She was right on point! A few months later, Kat and Bob brought us to a house that was an absolute gem in a great location. We fell in love with it and placed a bid, but lost. We were so devastated and lost hope, but the Bedburys were there for us and comforted us by letting us know that if we didn't get it, it was not meant to be. After that, we kept on looking and the same thing would happen. We must have lost at least five (plus) bids. Time after time, Kat would pick up the phone and tell us the bad news, but reiterated that our dream home was still out there. There was a point where we even got desperate and were willing to bid on anything, but Kat would advise that us this was not the way to go. She would tell us not to lose faith and cheer us on. If it were not for her, we would not have found our dream house.

 

One day, Kat emailed us about a beautiful house that she wanted us to look at. She even secured an early viewing just for us. Once we walked in, we knew that this was the one. All the memories of the "lost" homes quickly went away and we were determined to win this one. That's the funny thing about house hunting. We now seriously believe that when it's meant to be, it's meant to be. Kat and Bob knew this all along. After an aggressive fight, we got through the first hurdle. This was where Bob started to take over and give his expert advice on how to secure the house.

 

Bob helped us win the bid and also close out as quick as possible. He guided us through the process and gave us easy-to-follow timelines. There were no major surprises from their team and if the other side (sellers) threw a curve ball at us, Bob was 100% ready to coach us on how to deal with the issue. He was our rock and eventually helped us secure our dream home.

 

During this whole process, Bob and Kat were very responsive. They have the perfect blend of old tradition and current communication. They would respond to every text message, email, and phone call we had regardless of the time. They also utilized up-to-date tools and were very accommodating to our work schedule. We could submit bids and sign documents online at work with ease. If it wasn't for their quick turnaround, we do not see how we could have gotten our first house.

 

We would highly recommend Bob and Kat to anyone as they are a fierce team with not only the correct tools and knowledge to get the deal closed, but a team who also gives all their heart and effort. It was a wild experience and we were glad to have gone through it all with them!

I first met Bob and Kat when I went to tour a home that was for sale. I immediately liked their style - conversational and direct, but not overly pushy like some agents I've met. At the time I met team Bedbury, I had tried working with a few other agents on the buying side. (My husband and I were first time home buyers, so this was all new to us!) I had been disappointed with the agents I'd been working with, as surprisingly, they were very hands-off. Since everything is digital, it seemed up to me to find the houses, learn about the area and do the research on schools, etc. I'm willing to put in time, but I felt like I was doing all the work. Upon my and my husband's first meeting with Team Bedbury, they proved they were very knowledgeable about the areas we were interested in, took initiative to help me understand the neighborhoods and schools and were very hands-on.

 

Being new to home ownership, I got my hopes up several times, with several different homes. The thing I loved about Bob and Kat is, they asked the right questions. "Can you live with this," Bob said while we looked at a very ugly bathroom. When purchasing something as big as a home, you really need to know where your 'deal breaker' line is drawn and Bob and Kat helped me find it.

 

After many tours, a few possible offers and some reality checks, my husband and I were ready to put an offer on a house. Little did we know, that 'house' would be come a 'home' where we would bring our daughter home to just 10 days after moving in.

 

The process of putting an offer on our home meant acting fast and jumping through some hoops. There were a few stressful moments when we had to rush to sign things, look over documents or read over tedious details, but we always felt we were in capable hands with Bob and Kat. They worked well with all parties involved and kept us informed as the process unfolded.

 

Before we knew it, my husband and I were holding keys to our first house in our hands. Over the last three months of being in our new home, we have grown to love the place. It has everything we wanted in a new home, but also allow us to live within our means and feel comfortable which was very important to us.

 

Bob and Kat helped us on the journey to become first time home owners and we thank them for helping us achieve our goal!

 

Sincerely,

Dearest Kat and Bob,

 

Buying a home was such an important milestone for our family that we couldn't trust just anyone. You came at the recommendation of a family friend, so we thought it safe to explore doing business with you. The trust we gave you was never taken for granted. You both saw us past all the details and hurdles, and there were many, and saw how important this was to us. You acted as if you were helping your own family, with kindness, enthusiasm and professionalism that only comes with many, many years of experience.

 

We know you are both in high demand, but always when you helped us, it felt as if we were your only client. As you know we didn't get the first house we tried for. We didn't get the second house we tried for. You stuck with us throughout the entire process, and behold - we are living joyfully in the third house we tried for. And it feels a little like heaven to us. Thank you for bringing this hidden treasure of a house to our attention. Thank goodness Chris was paying attention. And thank goodness our daughter made us keep going through the process.

 

Thank you for helping us with daunting home owner details even after the sale. We know that is out of the kindness of your hearts, and we don't take it for granted!

 

You are on the very short list of people we call our friends.

 

Sincerely,

"Team Bedbury work around the clock for their clients and go the extra mile for them."

After renting in the Bay Area for several years, my husband and I found ourselves in a position to potentially purchase our first home. We began our search informally, going to open houses on the weekends in the neighborhoods we thought were nice to raise our family. We met many agents, but didn’t want to commit ourselves to any one team until we were sure we had met the best agents who could represent our needs to the best of their ability.

 

We met Bob and Kat at one of the very first open houses we attended and were immediately greeted with warm smiles. After several weeks of receiving email updates on available properties from Team Bedbury, we officially began our search with them. They took the time to learn what we wanted in a home and they delivered.


Team Bedbury made time in their busy schedules to fit in our visits so that it was convenient for us. They promptly returned messages and replied to emails (sometimes immediately after they were sent), and reassured us that we would find the perfect house in a very competitive market.

 

We finally found the right house, and we couldn’t be happier. Bob and Kat took a potentially stressful and complicated process and helped us through with ease. They kept us informed and worked with the seller’s agent to achieve the best outcome for both parties.

 

Team Bedbury work around the clock for their clients and go the extra mile for them. Even post-sale, they provided multiple references for contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc.… They even surprised us with a treat the day we moved in.  Bob and Kat are a wonderful team and I would recommend their services to anyone.

"We felt like we were working with the best kind of family."

Dear Homebuyer:

 

I am writing this letter in recommendation of the Bedbury Team. Kat, Bob, and their assistant came to our rescue in a highly competitive market. We would not have been able to purchase our dream home without them.

 

After losing out on our bids for two other homes, I realized Silicon Valley was not the kind of place you could take home buying lightly. We needed a team that was not only going to be pleasant to work with and look out for our best interests, but also one that knew this area inside and out, and could create strategies to allow us to achieve our goal.

 

I met Team Bedbury at an open house. We had visited more open houses than I can remember and their professionalism stood out. The house was staged perfectly and all three of the team members were on hand to greet visitors and showcase their property in its best light. When I called Kat a couple weeks later and shared with her our home search saga, she put me at ease. Kat promised me she would find us the right house.

 

I was so desperate to find a home and move my family out of our cramped two-bedroom apartment, I was ready to purchase anything. Fortunately, Kat treated me like a friend and discouraged me from moving forward on any properties that I didn’t love. When we found the house of my dreams, I didn’t think we had a chance, not even with Team Bedbury on our side. The house was in the most desirable section of San Carlos, on one of the best streets, in ideal condition with gorgeous upgrades throughout, and was in that sweet spot price range that attracted many other interested parties. Team Bedbury made plans to go to battle for our house. They befriended the seller’s Realtor, they helped me craft a letter to the homeowners, they arranged to have our offer (among 6 other offers) presented last to give us an advantage, and perhaps most brilliant of all, they suggested I accompany them with my two young sons to present our offer to the buyer. After some serious back and forth, nail-biting negotiations, Team Bedbury called us with the news – We Got The House!!!

 

We could not have been more grateful.  My husband and I have met many people in the Bay Area who gave up on home ownership due to this highly competitive market. We have met many others who spent an entire year getting outbid before they secured a property. Team Bedbury put us in escrow with our dream home within 3 weeks.

 

Once in escrow they oversaw every detail. Bob kept our lender on task, Kat met us for all of our appointments, their assistant volunteered to watch our two active boys every time we visited the house or sat down to sign paperwork, and the entire team made suggestions and held our hand throughout the process. We felt like we were working with the best kind of family.

 

My husband and I highly recommend Team Bedbury to anyone looking to purchase a home in Silicon Valley.

 

Sincerely,

Bob and Kat were amazing in helping me find my current home. They were very proactive in scheduling house viewings and listening to what I wanted in a home. If it wasn't for them, I would have never found the house I am living in now. Kat showed me a house in Menlo Park that I would never have found on my own and I'm very grateful they did. All my friends have said that the house is a perfect match for me and I couldn't agree more. As a first time home buyer, they guided me through every step and made the process very smooth despite some issues with the lender. I would (and have) recommended Bob and Kat to my friends, so that their home buying experience can be as great as mine.

"Finally we found a great house in San Mateo that was completely remodeled and very private and quiet... There were a few glitches but we usually did not hear about them until the problem was solved."

We first met Kat and Bob at an open house in our neigborhood when we were just beginning to think about buying a second home in the Bay area, and what would be our 3rd home purchase overall. They discussed the pros and cons of the house they were showing and we eventually decided that a total house remodel was not for us. We had done that and wanted to buy a home that was move-in ready. Kat told me she was a "fierce negotiator" which I immediately liked. Gradually over the next few months we became more serious about buying and Kat set us up with property searches and previewed several houses for us. I knew she was looking out for our best interests based on 2 instances. In the first case we looked at a brand new home in Emerald Hills which was gorgeous. Kat however told us that she thought it would be too dark (it was in a valley).  When it came down to deciding between that house and the one we eventually bought she recommended the latter house because of the lack of stairs in addition to the lack of natural light. Since we ended up buying a home that was $100K less expensive I knew she was not in it just for the money. In the second case she found a house that she knew we would love at a Realtor’s pricing party. She got us into see it and went above and beyond the call of duty trying to get us that house, without any prompting from us. The owners eventually decided to hold off selling. Finally we found a great house in San Mateo that was completely remodeled and very private and quiet. We thought the house was overpriced and told them our limit was $45K under the asking price. Kat and Bob got the house for us for $55K under asking.

 

We also took advantage of their recommended mortgage broker and all of them worked together to get the house closed. There were a few glitches but we usually did not hear about them until the problem was solved. This is Bob’s part of the teamwork and he always had a solution to the problems. Also with the long hours we work, Kat and Bob accommodated us meeting us early in the morning (7:00 am) or late in the evening as needed. This plus the ability to sign documents electronically made the mountain of paper work much more manageable. Kat and Bob also have a long list of vendors that they recommend, we have used 4 of them so far and they are all excellent. And not to leave out the 3rd member of the team, Monica Asborno, was also very easy to deal with and she took care of things or answered emails when Kat and Bob were out. All in all I would highly recommend Team Bedbury and I will not hesitate to have them sell our other house eventually.

"While we were anticipating a bit of a bidding war, the Bedbury's positioned our offer so attractively yet aggressively that it was accepted within the timeframe given, and on our terms."

We first met Bob & Kathryn when they introduced themselves during a casual conversation with my fiance at his place of business. Ironically, we were in the early stages of a home search. At the Bedburys' suggestion, we agreed to interview them at their office in San Carlos. We felt comfortable from the start that they would be able to assist us but at a pace that we would find acceptable to us.

 

Being rather independent individuals we chose to conduct our home search on our own timeframe and, for the most part, without the direct assistance of the Bedburys. They, of course, provided us with updates as they occurred direct from their website on properties that fit our specific search criteria. Ultimately, we found a home that called out to us, just like Bob and Kathryn said it would. That's when the Bedburys really "earned their keep." They contacted the listing agent and assessed the status of the situation from the selling side. While we were anticipating a bit of a bidding war, the Bedburys positioned our offer so attractively yet aggressively that it was accepted within the timeframe given, and on our terms.

 

We wish to acknowledge and thank Team Bedbury for helping make our dreams of home ownership a reality and would encourage anyone looking for the right Realtors to represent them to at least do as we did and interview the Bedburys.

 

Thank you Bob, Kat and Monica for a job well done.

We first met Kathryn Bedbury at an open house she was hosting in Belmont along with her Executive Assistant, Monica Asborno. It was a chance meeting that turned out to be the beginning of a great relationship as we looked to buy our first home. At Kat's suggestion, we met her "other half" and business partner, Bob, at their office in San Carlos where we interviewed them. They also introduced us to one of their lending partners with whom we struck up an equal rapport. By the end of the meeting we were committed to working with them. That's when Team Bedbury sprang into action and ultimately helped my fiance and I find and purchase our first home.

 

In the middle of wedding planning and being first time homebuyers we felt like Team Bedbury really took care of us. They were readily available and very responsive. They answered all our questions and educated us on the process at every step. Kat was very dialed into what we were looking for and only showed us two homes before we fell in love with one of them! The entire home search process from initial meeting to submission of our offer took less than two weeks. Once we found the right home Team Bedbury negotiated hard to ultimately secure a purchase price for us that was far below the asking price.

 

Since we bought a fixer-upper and had some concerns regarding permits, Team Bedbury pulled some strings to get a local building inspector to check on the existing permits and assured us that the entire house was built with permits and that we could feel comfortable with our remodeling plans. Monica even helped us get estimates on fixing the chimney. The loan process couldn't have been any easier and we closed escrow in a timely manner thanks to their strong alliance with an escrow officer who went out of her way to make signing convenient for us during a weekend. We thank the entire extended team for a job well done. While hopefully many times before, we'll see Bob and Kat again for sure when we're ready for our next home.

"Team Bedbury had nothing less than our highest interest in purchasing the home that we loved. The two are phenomenal negotiators."

For first time home buyers, the process of finding to buying a home can be an intimidating experience. It couldn’t have been easier than with the help of Team Bedbury. After meeting Kathryn and Bob in the summer we quickly built a great bond together. Kathryn worked with us day and night to help us find our perfect home. She would send us new listings each week, return our emails immediately, and be available all the time to show us any house we wanted. She worked so diligently that we gave her a nickname referencing Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990’s character "The Terminator." It felt as if Kathryn was on a nonstop mission to help us find our dream home.

 

Team Bedbury had nothing less than our highest interest in purchasing the home that we loved. The two are phenomenal negotiators. Our house purchase was a competitive bid situation, where we did not have the strongest offer, but with Team Bedbury's ability to build positive relationships and convey that we had the most earnest offer. With these traits they were able to make our offer the winner within hours of presentation.


Again each step of the process was made incredibly simple for us, even when we were on our way to closing. Bob answered all of our questions as soon as we emailed or called him. Whether the questions came up about the contract, amendments, closing costs, etc., he always had an answer for us. He had a great knack for reading people and really digging for information that provided us with great insight during our decision making process. We gave Bob the nickname "The Closer" because of his influence on the entire closing process that took us to the very end when we signed our escrow documents and then received our keys.

 

We feel like Kathryn and Bob have spoiled us in a life experience that a number of people complain about. With them, we have experienced nothing but the best of times. Team Bedbury has truly made our dreams of homeownership come true and they can do it for you. Thank you Kathryn and Bob for your excellent care taking!

"We were well aware that you have other clients, but you never made us feel that way. Thank you for going to bat for us always… even when the outcome didn’t go our way."

Dear Kathryn & Bob,

 

First of all, we are so sorry to be sending this thank you and note of huge appreciation so late!

 

We absolutely love our new home and we thank you so much for making our move so enjoyable. We know that we wouldn’t have had such a pleasant experience with anyone else.

 

We were such rookies in the whole process and we became pretty wise through the whole thing.

 

Leaving our old home was not easy – it was a place we were very comfortable in and loved. You helped us to get it ready and we appreciate all you did to help us sell it. You assured us that we would find something better that we would learn to love more, and you were right.

 

Your endless and tireless attitude kept us afloat through everything. Thank you for your constant encouragement, hard work, and dedication to us. We were well aware that you have other clients, but you never made us feel that way. Thank you for going to bat for us always… even when the outcome didn’t go our way.

 

Again, we found something and were able to get something (our home) that was more than we ever thought we would have. We owe that to you and we will forever be grateful!

 

I still pinch myself sometimes when I look at our house that is quickly becoming our home.

 

We have so much space to run and play and live. Thank you for the magic you did to help make this dream our reality. Thank you for your patience in our thoughts and decisions and directions… there were a lot :)

 

We also thank you for the awesome house-warming gift. We love our picture family tree. The inscription is beautiful too. Thank you for all the gift cards too; all of which were way too generous. But getting to know the 2 of you better, that is what you are – generous, with your time and actions.

 

Most of all, we do thank you for the attention you gave us, but we thank you for your honesty, your conversation, and the friendships that we created.  We do consider you very good friends now and I hope that we can keep it that way.

 

Thank you for loving our children and for being so patient with them as well. They love you too. They both still talk to you almost daily on the phone (whatever toy of choice they happen to be using at the time).

 

We cannot say thank you enough. I think that’s what took us so long. We wanted to be able to express our thankfulness justly, but it’s hard. Thank you from the bottom and tops of all 4 of our hearts.

 

WE LOVE YOU!

"Undaunted, Bob and Kathryn rallied their resources and provided a lender who could make things happen on short notice. And make things happen they did!"

I originally met Bob and Kathryn during an open house they were hosting within a community in San Carlos that I had long been coveting as a place to live. I was impressed with them from the onset by their intense focus on my interests. Having arrived late to the open house I realized they were closed and I was simply going to pick up a flyer and move on. As they were preparing to drive away they noticed my interest in the home and offered to open the home up again for me to tour. I resisted but they persisted and inside the home I soon found myself. After about an hour of engaging conversation I concluded that I liked the home that was available but it was only a 2 bedroom and I told them I really wanted a 3 bedroom and would also like one with a view. Kat confidently replied that they would find me one. Unbeknownst to me, the very next day they set off on what they called a “door-knocking” expedition. And lo and behold, not only did they find a 3-bedroom home but, one with expansive views of virtually the entire San Francisco Bay, which I immediately fell in love with.

 

The only hitch in their discovery was that the home was soon going to be available as a "short sale." Bob and Kat explained to me what a short sale was and what it likely meant, both pros and cons. They told me they felt confident they could win this prize for me but it would take some time and maneuvering. Seeing as though I had time on my side for the right home, I decided to see if buying this home could actually be a reality. As negotiations dragged on, the short sale turned into a bank foreclosure. Due to some extensive IRS liens against the home from the former owner, the Bedburys assured me that it would not be purchased out from underneath me on the courthouse steps.

 

Alas they were right. After garnering no interest as a foreclosure, the home quickly reverted back to the original mortgage holder. Just as quickly, Bob and Kat helped me swoop in to lay claim to the house with, what would have to be considered, a stealth, non-competitive offer, which was just as quickly accepted by the bank. As things would unfold, all that Bob & Kat had done for me thus far would ultimately turn out to be the easy part.

 

Bob and Kat guided me through a several month long "right of redemption" period for the tax liens. Then, just when the redemption period was about to expire and the close of escrow was finally imminent, the original lender, which I had personally selected, bailed out on the financing over a technicality I still find hard to accept. Undaunted, Bob and Kathryn rallied their resources and provided a lender who could make things happen on short notice. And make things happen they did!

 

Now, all that remains is for me to complete the remodeling of my new home that I have been dreaming about for oh, so many months now. I can’t wait for the remodeling to be completed so I can sit back in the comfort of my new living room and enjoy "my" view of the City of San Francisco and beyond.

 

If you’re looking for real estate agents who will truly go the extra mile for you I sincerely recommend the Bedburys. Thank you Bob and Kat for helping make my dream home a reality!

Bob and Kathryn Bedbury were highly recommended by the attorney of a good friend of mine. They had consulted with the attorney on the sale of his home in a difficult market and he was very pleased with the outcome.

 

I instantly liked them. They were warm and friendly, yet professional and well-informed – a winning combination. They explained their pricing strategy in great detail – which included a strong market analysis – and I was sold.

 

Bob and Kat worked tirelessly to help me prepare my home for sale in a very short period of time. They gathered bids for repair work and upgrades then made appointments for the work to be completed. We stayed in constant contact and my many questions were always answered quickly and in detail.

 

My home began a beautiful transformation, but when I saw it complete with the staging, it took my breath away. Every room was gorgeous! It was at this moment that I suddenly realized the value of staging.

 

B&K’s marketing was extremely effective. Their brochures and virtual tour were first-class and their attention to detail awarded my home the brokers “best of tour” prize on its first showing. We received multiple offers on the home and it sold over the list price in 9 days. My modest investment had just reaped a reward 5 times that amount.

 

I have to thank Bob and Kathryn for this wonderful experience – they actually made it fun!

As a former first-time home buyer I heartily recommend Kathryn and Bob Bedbury to anyone who is looking for a Realtor in the Peninsula area. They are both so good-natured and knowledgeable, and such a huge help in the purchase process.

 

Kathryn also has a terrific instinct for real estate. I literally would not have found my current home if she (based on just looking at the front of the house) hadn’t suggested that we take a detour from the search we were on that particular day to look at a home that had not shown up on our multiple listing searches and was nowhere on our list of properties. Left on my own, I would have passed right by the place without a thought. Of course, that home turned out to be this great place that I am now proud to call my own.

 

So, by all means strongly consider Bob and Kathryn if you are searching for a new home.  I know that I look forward to working with them should I ever need to explore the home market again.

 

Most Sincerely,

Dear Team Bedbury,

 

We cannot thank you both enough for the work you did to get us our new home. With your guidance, we were the winning bid out of several offers and still came in under appraisal value. As you remember, though, winning the bid was the "easy" part of OUR process. The lending process was everything but smooth. It was ONLY because you had forged such a positive and active relationship with the selling agent, that we were able to get through all the delays and extensions that came from using an out-of-town mortgage broker we chose (against your recommendation). Next time we will definitely take your advice... lesson learned there. Thank you for your professionalism, persistence, advice, experience, knowledge, talents, and smiles throughout the entire transaction. You were both a joy to work with.

 

All our best,

"They really made us feel like friends rather than clients in making sure everything was taken care of and we were happy."

We first met Bob and Kathryn through our aunt and uncle who recommended their services when we were planning our move from Atlanta, Georgia to the Bay Area. During our home search, it was difficult for us to be there in person and so Bob and Kathryn accommodated our unique situation by providing us with extensive information on homes we would be interested in. They were always ready to answer any questions we had, were very professional and were a real pleasure to work with in our search. They helped us find the perfect home that met all our needs and were able to help us secure an excellent deal on it.


Many of our friends thought we were crazy to purchase a home on the other side of the country without having seen it but with the help of Bob and Kathryn and the trust that we (and our aunt and uncle) had in them, we were confident we were making the right decision and happy to save ourselves an extra trip. The Bedburys proved us right in trusting them because we absolutely love our house and could not think of a more perfect house and neighborhood for us.


Since we did not move into our house until almost 2 months after closing, the Bedburys went beyond what we expected of them and helped us with many aspects of relocation and managing our house from watering our plants to connecting us with services we would need for our new home. They really made us feel like friends rather than clients in making sure everything was taken care of and we were happy.


Thank you Bob and Kathryn for helping us find the home of our dreams and helping to make our move to California go smoothly. We could not recommend anyone better than you two to help people find their dream home!

"Then you took the time to truly understand what we were looking for, and your thoroughness, responsiveness, and knowledge of the market was of tremendous value to us."

Dear Kathryn,

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for everything you did for us in helping us finding and buying our dream home.  When we first met you in the fall as a referral from a close colleague, we already had a property in mind and we thought we were at the end of a particular transaction so that your efforts would have been somewhat simplified as we moved to a closing. Of course, that home turned out not to be "the one," and you certainly did quite a bit to help us make the right decision. Providing market information and an objective perspective on the property itself made us see things we hadn't considered previously, and we thank you for helping us make that decision. Then you took the time to truly understand what we were looking for, and your thoroughness, responsiveness, and knowledge of the market was of tremendous value to us. You showed us great homes, and ultimately brought us to THE home; the one when we walked in we knew "this was it." And through the remainder of the process, and even after our closing, you remained so very attentive to our every need. You were nothing short of terrific, Kathryn, and we will always have you to thank for helping us to find our dream home!

 

For anyone else that would be considering your services, we would recommend you in a heartbeat. You were not only our Realtor, but a friend.  Thank you Kathryn!

Dear Kathryn,

 

I want to thank you so very much for the fantastic job you did selling my house. When we first discussed the price I know I was a little anxious. I suppose all sellers want the most for their homes and I was no different. However, after you and I talked about the listing price, I realized that probably the most important part of selling anything is fair pricing. You said if we put the house on the market at a reasonable fair market price, we would have more interest. You were absolutely right! I never in my wildest dreams though we would get five offers, sell the house in less than a week and close escrow in twenty-one days!!

 

Along with pricing, you were an angel in getting the house ready. You are a dynamo and I hope Coldwell Banker and all of your customers appreciate all of your hard work as I have.


Please take good care. Again, I can't thank you enough!

 

Always,

Dear Kathryn,

 

We want to take a moment to say a huge thank you for your help with our duplex in Redwood City, CA. As you know, we listed our property with you rather reluctantly, not because we didn't believe in you but because we really did not want to sell but we were faced with financial circumstances that were challenging to say the least.

 

Right from the start you sensed our emotional attachment to our home. You made the preparation for the sale as painless and trouble-free for us as could be imagined. You dove into the process of preparing and presenting our home for sale in a manner that was unbelievably professional and yet personal. You treated our home as if it were your home.

 

And that latter point is the best part. In appreciating our reluctance to sell, you never backed away from your original intention of finding a way in which we could remain in our home. While you continued to aggressively pursue a buyer for our home, you also took a proactive stance with our financial circumstances in helping us pursue a loan modification program that would ultimately allow us to retain our beloved home.

 

Kathryn, we realize you made a substantial personal sacrifice in not only foregoing the ultimate compensation from the sale of our property but also were not able to recover the expenses you incurred in preparing our home for sale. But true to your word, you never let your personal interests come before those of ours. Because of you, we are still in our home and enjoying the life that we have come to love.

 

Our entire family appreciates you more that you can imagine. Please know that, if and/or when we decide to sell for the right reasons, you will be our Realtor of choice. Through this experience you have become a true friend as well as a trusted real estate advisor. If you ever need a reference please feel free to call upon us. We would welcome an opportunity to endorse you.

 

Sincerely,

This reference letter is given to Kathryn Bedbury as a token for the great services that she provided to us when we purchased our home in November 2008.

 

Being first time homebuyers, the process & documentation seemed daunting to us. Kathryn was very patient, professional and was a dependable guide who walked us thru the entire process. She also answered all our questions promptly and really put us at ease. She was always accessible and was in constant communication with us thru-out the transaction.

 

The purchase proceeded as planned and each step was meticulously orgnanized. When we arrived to sign the forms, all the paperwork was ready and in good order. We were very pleased with her expert negotiations and the professionalism that she displayed.

 

The entire transaction went very smoothly and she exceeded our expectations with her dilligence and expertise.

 

We are thrilled with this home that she helped us purchase and would highly recommend her services. We wish her all the best for the future.

 

Yours Truly,

Kathryn,

 

Thank you for all of your hard work in the selling of my home and even helping me with the home purchase in Oregon! You always kept my nervousness under control with your positive and cheerful attitude. You even found me a buyer who offered me full asking price in the first 24 hours of being on the market! Unfortunately, for both of us that deal fell through. But, you kept at it. You held open houses, canvassed the neighborhood (I know because my neighbors commented on how delightful you are). You even cleaned the gutters on the street so my home had good "curb appeal." You then found me a performing buyer and closed the deal flawlessly.

 

I find Kathryn Bedbury to be extremely talented and hard working. She has made me very happy in a very difficult time in my "old" life!


Thank you Kathryn and I wish you much continued success.

Fortune isn’t a strong enough word to describe how I feel to have met and be working with Kathryn and Bob Bedbury. Truly they are a unique, smart, organized, and considerate "team." They make me (and everyone) feel like family. They always go the extra mile and with a smile! They are more then just phenomenal professionals to work with, but just extraordinary people I am lucky to have in my life.

I wholeheartedly recommend Kathryn Bedbury. She is an amazing woman who cares deeply about her clients professionally and personally. She goes above and beyond and continuously exceeds expectations.


I first met Kathryn at an open house. We connected immediately over chocolate chip cookies and our shared backgrounds in healthcare (Kathryn used to be a social worker). As I explored the real estate market, I realized that I wanted a property in San Jose. Kathryn could have showed me houses in the South Bay, but instead she told me that this geographical area was not of her expertise. Most real estate agents would have just tried to show me the houses in order to earn a commission – but not Kathryn. She referred me to another agent in San Jose. She checked on me throughout my search to see how things were going. She was always available to listen and bounce ideas off of. I must confess that I felt guilty taking some of Kathryn's time since she wasn't even my agent. But as a first time homebuyer, her steady council made a huge difference for me. She even connected me with Stefani Hartsell, a fabulous mortgage broker at Princeton Capital.

 

Kathryn is like a surrogate real estate agent for me. Her warmth, ability to listen, measured council, and analysis is refreshing in a world of competition. Kathryn works endlessly for her clients and advocates and fights on their behalf.

 

I would be happy to speak with anyone who has any questions. Kathryn can turn a stressful, uncertain, and ambiguous real estate process for first time homebuyers into an educational, fulfilling, and fun experience.

Dear Bob & Kathryn,

 

I have to say you two are absolutely the most special people I have met in a very long time. To walk into your open house today – you could feel the love, it comes across in your warmth, sweet personality – and what a  presentation! I can see why my colleague has fallen head over heels for you!!

 

Your clients are very lucky to have you two on their side. I see why you are so successful, good things come to good people.


If there is ever anything I can do to help you, I hope you would ask. I would be so thrilled.

Kathryn Bedbury strikes the perfect balance in an agent. She neither overwhelms you, nor tires of helping you find the perfect home.

 

When I started looking for a house, I was a picky buyer and I didn't really know where I wanted to live. I'm certain many agents would have grown tired of my changing circumstances and indecision.

 

Not Kathryn. When I was looking on the Peninsula, her expert knowledge of the area and upbeat demeanor despite my waffling was a joy. When I started looking, and ultimately purchased in San Francisco, Kathryn continued to be an invaluable resource to me.

 

If you are looking for agent to build a relationship with, Kathryn is the one. She clearly loves her work and will be there with you now and in the future.

We highly recommend Team Bedbury! We had the privilege of working with Bob and Kat as our realtors when looking to purchase a home on the Peninsula. They were recommended to us by friends who also purchased their home with Bob and Kat. They did an exceptional job in helping us with the purchase of our home. We especially appreciate the dedication and hard work they did for us: negotiating the contract, finding us a good lender, and taking the time to go over all the details of getting us settled. They always maintained the perfect balance of professionalism, good humor, patience, and understanding.

 

When we finally found the right house, Bob and Kat took a potentially stressful and complicated process and helped us through with ease until we closed escrow. But they didn't stop there, they also provided multiple references for contractors and gardeners. Bob and Kat, thank you for your experience, knowledge, and advice through this whole buying process. We highly recommend you and if we buy or sell again we look forward to working with you.


By the way, our daughter is running around the house calling it her new house but for the first 2 weeks she called it Bob's house :-) We all love our new home.

"I now know that in a real estate market like this one, it is imperative to have an excellent team in place to even stand a chance at purchasing a home, and Bob and Kat are beyond excellent."

My husband and I met Bob on a whim when we called him to see if he could show us a property that he was representing. We had been looking for an agent to represent us, but after looking for a few months we had not found one that seemed like the proper fit. However, when we met Bob he was welcoming, honest, and very informed about the property and the general area. We decided to meet with both Bob and Kat in a more formal setting and see what Team Bedbury could offer our house search. The first meeting lasted an hour, but after the first ten minutes I knew they were the perfect agents for us. They seemed genuinely interested in helping us find a home that suited us and not just a home.

Our budget was not large for the area, but Bob and I hit the ground running on the first week. With his knowledge I quickly became used to the price points of homes in the area and really got a feel for the market. I wanted to see a lot of houses to really figure out what we wanted at this stage in our life, and Bob was on board with weekly or biweekly meetings so that I could accomplish this goal. He never rushed or pushed me and always lent an experienced ear when I mused about potential resale of a specific home we were viewing. One Friday night, three weeks after our search had started with Bob and Kat, a Top Agent Network email was sent to me with an off-market opportunity, and I knew we had to jump on it. We asked to view the home immediately, and, due to Bob’s persistence with the seller’s agent, were the first people to view the home. We saw it twice that weekend, and by Wednesday, just five days later, were under contract.

      The house we now own far exceeds our expectations of what we were hoping to purchase, and it is all because of the work of Team Bedbury. I now know that in a real estate market like this one, it is imperative to have an excellent team in place to even stand a chance at purchasing a home, and Bob and Kat are beyond excellent. I recommend Bob and Kat to every one I speak with about real estate, because I know that if you have put in the hard work to save up for a down payment in this area, then you deserve the best real estate agents on your side.

Truly genuinely wonderful people

We met Bob and Kat just about four years ago, my husband and I had just relocated to the area. We both grew up in Texas and then moved to Singapore after getting married, then a new position for my husband landed us here, in the Bay area. Our plan all along was to move back to the United States, buy a house and start a family. What we didn’t realize is how crazy the housing market was going to be.

We set up meetings with recommended realtors in the area to find a realtor for us. While we were interviewing other potential realtors, we visited open houses and on one such visit, we stumbled upon Bob and Kat. We were instantly greeted by Bob who was standing outside and he said “Welcome Home!”. I immediately felt welcome and we walked through the door and were greeted by Kat, she was so bubbly and nice and offered us warm, home-made cookies and information on the home. We were brand new to this process and she asked us if we had the disclosures on the house (we didn’t even know what that meant at this point). I think she picked up on this and asked us about our search and learned that we did not have a realtor yet, she gave us their card and marketing materials and we were on our way. We loved that house, but it was not the one for us in the end. What I loved more was Bob and Kat, there was something so genuine and honest about them and that was so refreshing.

We interviewed Bob and Kat and the deal was done, they didn’t even begin to compare to other realtors that we spoke too, they go above and beyond in a market where that is not required anymore. They always make the houses look impeccable and add a little something extra, gelato, pizza, etc. I’ve walked into open houses where the agent just sits on the couch and doesn’t even greet prospective buyers, because let’s be honest, the house is going to sell. I appreciate that Bob and Kat still give 110% even though they do not have to.

We do not own a house (Yet!) and that is our fault, we are a couple who is very picky and who do not take decisions lightly and require time and research to make a decision. Now try to buy a house in this crazy market where offers come in a week later and you’re competing with so many others for the same house. Bob and Kat urged us to learn the neighborhoods so we could hone in on our search, they also always presented us with the facts about the market and trends and kept telling us to buy and finding really great homes for us. They told us it was only going to keep going up in price based on the current trends and if we would buy, we could build some very strong equity quickly. They were right, as we learned the market and where we wanted to buy, it was too late. Within two years, we were priced out of the areas that we wanted to live. If we had listened to Bob and Kat early on in the process, we would have a home in a neighborhood we were happy and would have made some serious equity in the process. We did make offers on homes, we were usually very last minute and over asking, but not always as aggressive as Bob and Kat would have suggested. What I appreciated was that they were always available and even at 10PM at night, would work tirelessly to get an offer in for us. They would also do everything in the power to make it an offer that would stand out, we would write a letter and they would present in person with a present if needed. We came very close on several homes, but always lost to all cash offers with zero contingencies.

We did end up winning a home during this process and we used Bob and Kat’s inspector and as he inspected the home, he saw a problem with the foundation that he had never seen. Newspaper and cement had been used to fill in holes in the cinder blocks and there was no way to assess the structural integrity of the foundation. We did not feel good about this and The Bedburys agreed, Kat said she had never come across this and helped us back out of the contract. I already knew they were the ones for us, but this sealed the deal. This is money lost for them and that did not matter, they truly want their clients to find a home and be happy.

Bob and Kat are still in our lives and still send us updates on the market and we still hope to buy a home with them. Bob and Kat came to the hospital when my daughter was born and it meant so much to us, they are truly genuinely wonderful people who care about their client’s happiness. You won’t find a harder working pair or realtor out there and hopefully you learn from our mistakes and get your foot in the door before it’s too late.

I first met Bob and Kat years ago when they were first getting their online presence set up, and I was working in computer repair. They're awesome, so I worked with them as long as I could until I started a new job.
Fast forward a few years where I find myself at an open house for this amazing home nearby. I wasn't looking to buy a house, but this one was calling my name and I felt the need to answer.
The timing seemed right financially, but I knew that buying a house in this area is its own challenge and didn't want to get my hopes up. I sent a text to Kat just before walking in the door and asked if we could talk soon. 
I fell in love with the house, and Kat and Bob were there every step of the way to make sure that I got it. I never felt rushed or pressured, and I felt that I had the support I needed at all times. This was uncharted territory for me, as I'd been a homeowner before, but I hadn't really gone through the home buying process. Luckily, Bob and Kat were there to walk me through the whole process, and help me contextualize and understand each step of the way.
I can't recommend them enough; they are both wonderful people who are very responsive and always eager to help. I've heard the process of buying a home can get stressful, so I was pleasantly surprised at how easy Bob and Kat made it all seem!
