Success Stories


Berkeley Real Estate Agents In five days we had had three offersCalifornia Agents

"Kathryn Stein and Helen Walker assisted my brother and I in selling our parents home in Albany. In five days we had had three offers and given the very difficult situation in the real estate market we both felt this was quite remarkable and gratifying as well.


"From the first meeting, both Realtors exhibited professionalism, common sense and excellent people skills. As problems and various situations came up, they always found creative situations to resolve the dilemmas. Many times they put in their own personal time and efforts to bring the sale to a positive conclusion. I recommend this team without reservation." - David Thomas


Berkeley Real Estate Agents They brought in excellent resources ... on time and within budgetCalifornia Agents

"Helen Walker and Kathryn Stein recently helped us sell our home in Kensington and we couldn't be happier with the results. They were both incredibly easy to work with, had amazing patience with our multitude of questions, and they definitely got the job done. We decided to really freshen up our home in prep for sale but we only had a short window to complete the work. They brought in excellent resources to tackle the jobs (on time and within budget) and helped us navigate the very tight timeline. Having both of them on our team was a huge factor in our success. Jennifer and I would work with them again and again." - Chris and Jennifer


Berkeley Real Estate Agents They basically functioned as fairy godmothersCalifornia Agents

"I bought my house from Kathryn Stein almost 10 years ago, and she made the process so simple, that when it came time to sell, I wouldn't dream of going to anyone else to take care of it. She and her fabulous partner Helen Walker were thoughtful, thorough, and worked very hard to make a stressful experience as stress free as possible. They listened to my (somewhat lunatic) wish list for selling, and somehow made it happen. They made all the appointments, guided me through the mass of paperwork, were always available by phone and email, and basically functioned as fairy godmothers for my sale. These are your go-to real estate gals!!" - Pam V.


Berkeley Real Estate Agents I felt confident during the whole processCalifornia Agents

"Dear Helen & Kathryn, I can't say enough how much I appreciated your handling of the sale of my house. You were so present, so attentive to detail, so communicative at every step- I could relax. I felt confident during the whole process. I felt especially great that the two of you were there to talk with. I will recommend you without reservation. With gratitude and much appreciation." – Sumaya C.


Berkeley Real Estate Agents We got more than I thought we would for the property and I credit it all to these two dynamosCalifornia Agents

" Last year I found myself in the unfortunate position of having to sell a triplex in Albany, CA, and I live in Indiana! Luckily, I had Kathryn Stein and Helen Walker as my real estate agents and they were a godsend. Not only did Kathryn and Helen "hold my hand" through every step of the pre-sale process, they were on the phone long distance with me every step of the way. I was so relieved to have two such marvelous and experienced agents working with me. Additionally, Kathryn and Helen were on the property daily in my place taking care of every detail from hiring workers, to staging the apartments, and negotiating the selling price. We ended up getting more than I thought we would for the property and I credit it all to these two dynamos. I heartily recommend Kathryn Stein and Helen Walker as real estate agents - they are best and the nicest agents I could have hoped to work with." - Nancy McAdams


Berkeley Real Estate Agents They are the best agents I have ever worked withCalifornia Agents

"I have bought, remodeled and sold over 30 houses since the 1970's. I used Helen Walker and Kathryn Stein to sell and acquire 3 more properties. They are the best agents I have ever worked with throughout all these years. They spent more time helping me with staging and more marketing than anyone I have ever experienced. They were also successful in getting my offer accepted in a very competitive, multiple offer situation. I feel very fortunate to have met them when I did...only wish it had been sooner." - Willie M.


Berkeley Real Estate Agents How a person who really knows her job gets it doneCalifornia Agents

"…Kathryn was just ideal for us to work with, especially since she was handling everything there in Berkeley and we were in Austin, Texas. We couldn’t be more pleased for having worked with her and it was a real learning experience for us to see how a person who really knows her job, gets it done." - Charlie Davis, Jr.


Berkeley Real Estate Agents Her professional, fun attitude made working with her an even greater pleasureCalifornia Agents

"Recently, we successfully sold and acquired property with Helen Walker. We can honestly say, she is the most attentive, conscientious, intelligent real estate agent with whom we have ever worked. She helped us immensely with the staging of our properties and due to her strong marketing plan, we received multiple offers on our property. Her professional, yet fun attitude made working with her an even greater pleasure. We highly recommend her to anyone in the market." - Frank and Carol


Berkeley Real Estate Agents She is hard working, thorough, honest, smart, and just downright niceCalifornia Agents

I have known Kathryn Stein in a professional context for several years. She has helped me both buy and sell a home. I have found her to be hard working, thorough, honest, smart, and just downright nice. She is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her without hesitation. - Karen H


Berkeley Real Estate Agents They actually made the process of selling our home enjoyableCalifornia Agents

When we started looking at homes we felt very lucky to have found Kathryn Stein. She really listened to our needs and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. We really appreciated that Kathryn works with integrity and honesty. She never tried to pressure us into making decisions but helped us sort through important questions in an informed manner.  Later in the purchasing process, we were was pleasantly surprised to see that Kathryn, who was so skilled at listening and attending to our needs as buyers, could be such a firm negotiator and continue to advocate for our wishes during the process of purchasing our home. When it came time to sell, we naturally turned to Kathryn and her real estate partner, Helen Walker, to sell our home. Kathryn and Helen are a fantastic team.  Throughout the process they offered guidance based on years of experience, knowledge of the current market, and our desires. They actually made the process of selling our home enjoyable. We also spoke to friends and co-workers who had heard of the excellent reputation that both Kathryn and Helen have for being top-notch realtors in the East Bay.  Not only are they great at what they do, they are wonderful people who we felt comfortable trusting in this process.  Throughout the process, we laughed a lot and were able to sell our home with the integrity and positive intentions we had hoped for, despite the horror stories we heard from friends. We sold our home in a relatively seamless process, walked away feeling very good about it. 

- Amy and Miko
