“I am happy to recommend Kathy Rolfo and her team to anyone considering engaging her services for real estate transactions, either as a buyer or seller. I am a real estate investor and homeowner and Kathy has represented me as both a buyer and seller on several transactions. I have worked with other realtors over the years and have found Kathy to be the most professional and helpful. She is a pleasure to work with and easy to communicate with. Her insights, strategies and comprehensive knowledge of the rapidly-changing market have benefited me greatly as I have sought to maintain and expand my real estate portfolio. Aside from her own high level of competency and easy-going personality, Kathy has assembled a team of professionals who ensure that the transactions are seamless as much as possible. Her contacts with title and escrow companies have significantly helped save me time and costs. Her contacts with lenders have also been quite helpful in pushing through transactions that other realtors would have been unable to accomplish. All in all, Kathy and her team are truly a pleasure to work with and someone who should be seriously considered for retention.”

“I just want to thank you for all of your help selling our house. From the second my husband started to search for an agent on New Year’s Day, you were on top of all the details with unbelievably quick response times. When it came to updating the interior of our home we relied on your expert advice…and it really paid off. You saved us a lot of money by helping us focus on only the necessary upgrades that would maximize our selling price. Even during a questionable real estate market, you were able to sell our house for a GREAT price despite all the obstacles. Not even the quirky temperamental buyers could stop you from getting multiple offers. You masterfully negotiated with buyers and successfully got us through inspections. I think we ended up selling for $60,000 more than their opening offer. I would HIGHLY recommend you to anyone looking to quickly sell their house for a premium price.”

I have had the true pleasure of working with Kathy Rolfo on two recent real estate transactions. While in the process of a divorce, I needed to find a realtor to sell our home . Kathy came recommended to me by a friend. That was a real turning point in a very difficult time in my life. We signed Kathy as our realtor. The sale of our house at the best possible price was very important. She implemented an impressive marketing program and priced it spot on. She expressed the importance of timing the listing. Kathy was able to sell our house in less than 2 weeks in this tough market. Then, when it was time for me to buy my first home as a single parent, she fought tirelessly to get me the best possible deal on a short-sale property. It was an 8 month process from offer to close. It wasn’t an easy battle, and she dedicated many resources to make sure that everything possible was done to get bank approval at the price offered. I had a limited budget and really never thought I’d be able to get such a perfect place for the kids and me, but thanks to Kathy, she made my dream come true. I could not be happier with the results Kathy obtained on both my home sale and purchase. I don’t shy away from any opportunity I have to recommend her services to others. When you find someone who truly works as hard for her clients as she would for her own family, you know you’ve found someone special. Kathy’s knowledge of the market, research, and dedication to her clients puts her in a class above other realtors. I’ve never seen someone so dedicated to her profession and her clients. If there’s one thing I could tell someone who’s in the market to buy or sell their home, it would be to at least take the time to talk to Kathy. You will not be disappointed. Having the right realtor behind you can make a world of difference. While I plan to be in my new place for a very long, long time, she will be the only one I call if I’m ever in the market to buy or sell again.
Kathy Rolfo, exceeded my expectations, and then some. Considering I’m not easily impressed, let me tell you what she did for me, and you make your own decision if she can do the same for you. First, she understands holistically San Diego. That means she knows the communities from Oceanside to the border, from the beaches to the mountains. But even more important she understands the community spirit, the sense of what makes it tick. You can also count on her to know the freeways and the commute times; the quality and location of the schools; the public and private amenities like libraries, parks and gyms; the local taxes/fees; shopping and restaurants, etc. Once she knows your needs, she’ll work to ensure your buying power is maximized by finding that best value in the community you desire. She’ll work objectively in negotiations, the property inspections and all those things necessary to get to closing w/o stress. All this while meeting the needs of the total family, e.g., balance what I wanted, versus what my wife wanted, versus what the kids wanted. Distilling all this down to the perfect home, in the perfect community, is not easy, but I wouldn’t change the purchase we made. Just about every agent makes claims of service and doing the best for you. Kathy doesn’t talk the talk, she walks the walk. Pick up the phone and call her. She’ll exceed your expectations too.
