Happy Clients

Esther represented us in the purchase of our bank owned Discovery Bay vacation home in 2008 and then in the resale of the home in August of 2012. We were not easy clients as our knowledged and expertise in real estate made us demanding both as buyers, and then as sellers but Esther never wavered and was steady and calm through the storms that arose on both the purchase and sale. She is truly a professional realtor with full knowledge of all the issues and problems that can develop for both buyers and sellers so. Have purchased and sold nearly 30 homes for our personal use in the past 35 years, I can definitely say we would hire or use her again. I think one of her greatest attributes is her skill at problem resolution even when her client is overly emotional. We wish her the best luck and hope others find her as great a resource as we did. Esther, you are so kind and we deeply appreciate your kindness. You know we love the home, and the area and are thankful for your part in the process of helping us put down some roots here. As we introduce friends to our home and neighborhood, we are hopeful some might be interested in getting a piece of this little paradise themselves, and of course you are one we would hook them up with. We are certain you will prosper in these difficult times for real estate because of what we observed in our transaction. You are truly dedicated and do what is necessary to make a deal close. You could not have done anything better and are one of the most tolerant, persistent, and professional realtors I have ever dealt with. Needless to say, we are glad to be a reference anytime you need us.

It was a challenge finding a home when I relocated from the Midwest to the East Bay. Initially I had another realtor when I began my home search and due to several missed opportunities, I almost gave up hope until I contacted Esther. Esthers drive, dedication and commitment found a perfect home for my family in an extremely short timeframe. She was very professional in her approach and responsive to all of my questions and calls. I will recommend Esther to anybody and am truly blessed to have found her in my search for a new home.

There were many complications in selling the home that was in a trust and it was at a time when homes were quickly dropping in value. I thought we'd never get the house sold, but Esther was always positive and in the end we had several buyers interested in the house and the house did sell. Esther was always professional and was my guardian angel through this sale. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home and wouldn't hesitate to use her services again.


After first meeting my real estate agent Esther my first impression was great. She showed me that she was very efficient and was quick to get us around the city, knowing exactly where she was going. I felt during the whole process that she was persistent and had faith that she would protect me throughout the whole deal. I am very satisfied and would recommend her to all my friends.

Esther represented my wife and I in the purchase of a beautiful home in The Lakes in Discovery Bay. We were very pleased with her knoweldge of the real estate market which made the process of purchasing a foreclosure and some of the unique situations that scenario can lead to much easier.Through the entire process Esther always maintained her professionalism and never lost her cool. We still stay in touch from time to time and I feel she is an asset and a friend helping me get better acclamated to homeownership. I would highly recommend using her services and I am 110% satisfied with everything Esther has done.

I rarely spend the time to do this (write "referral" letters), but I'm sending this letter to Esther Kennedy as a thank you for putting up with me for the better part of a year and doing such a great job helping me find my "dream" second home.I'm a fussy guy and at times I know I can be a handful to deal with (its good to know your shortcomings!), especially when it came down to writing offers and price negotiation. Through the entire process Esther always maintained her professionalism and never lost her cool, and she was very helpful in helping me find a home. In fact I was really only "looking", trying to get a better idea of the marketplace and potential future opportunities when one seemed to land in my lap after many months of watching the market and communicating back and forth with Esther. I ended up buying a foreclosure property and she was very knowledgeable in guiding me threw some of the unique situations that scenario can lead to. Months later after I closed on the property we still stay in touch from time to time and I feel she is an asset and a friend helping me get better acclamated to the neighborhood.I would highly recommend using her services and hope anyone reading this has as much luck as I did finding the right house with the right agent to guide me.

I would just like to say thank you for everything that you have done. It was a true pleasure to work with you as my realtor, you were so professional and responsive.

Esther is amazing. When we came to Esther with our "wish list" for our new home, she hand selected an incredible grouping of homes for us to visit. She scheduled the viewings and all we had to do was show up and pick the home. It was easy and believe it or not...fun. Esther found our new home AND was able to sell our existing home for a great price in a market where the odds were not on our side. My husband and I can't say enough about Esther and we recommend her to everyone in our network.

Esther went above and beyond her responsibilities to provide excellent service to us and continues to handle details even after the sale.
