“We can't thank Kris and Jennifer enough for helping us find our dream home!  We had a tall order:  help us sell our home of 11 years, then find us our dream home at a great price, and to top it all off, get it all done in a few months before the kids start school.  From day one, Kris and Jennifer were there to help us through each step of the process -- from the staging for the open house, to helping us search for the perfect home, to walking through the sale and purchase process.  Kris and Jennifer were always available to address our questions (there were many) and their advice had our best interests in mind.  Their deep understanding of the market and their excellent standing with other agents were essential to help us land our dream home!  We highly recommend Kris and Jennifer.  Their personal touch made a highly stressful process quite manageable.” - Aida and Jose Martin, San Jose 

 

“Jen and Kris are amazingly efficient and got our home sold super quickly with ease while we juggled our busy lives in another town.  I can't say enough good things about how seamless the preparation from a slight remodel, cleaning and staging went with their diligent oversight.  And not to mention their smarts in keeping in touch with us for literally 2 years while we rented the home and then taking us to market at the right time to maximize our returns.  We are very happy with our experience with Jen and Kris and the resulting quick and painless sale.” -   Heidi & Joseph Fisher, San Jose 

 

“We all know buying a home in the Bay Area is a challenge! Jen and Kris came with raving reviews from our relative who had bought a home through them. Sure enough, we met with them, and were quickly impressed by their professionalism and calm demeanor. The whole conversation was about what our needs and wants were instead of being told what our options are! During the entire 2-3 months that we worked together, Kris was very prompt in gathering all the information we requested (even went out of her way to check on schools through her nanny and friends) showing homes, following up, and giving feedback to help us make the right decision. Most of all, she was not pushy even when we were frustrated with the whole process! Working with them was such a pleasure since they made the whole process seamless! Jen and Kris work really well together as a team and are definitely different -a cut above the rest!” - Jegatri & Aravind Thayaparan, Almaden  

 

“When we started looking for a house to buy, we had no idea where to start. Jennifer guided us through the whole process, from pre-approval to signing papers to the close of escrow. She was readily available to answer questions and was very prompt when doing so. She had our best interests at heart, making sure we were comfortable throughout the process and also making sure we understood each document. She was understanding about our wants/needs about location and price point. Her knowledge of the area and real estate expertise was very impressive, we trusted her throughout the process. Even after the close of escrow, Jennifer has called to check in with us, just to make sure we were settling in nicely. She’s still answering random questions we have with no hesitation. I wouldn’t have expected that from a realtor and that is the reason why Jennifer is more than just a realtor. We mean much more to her than just a deal, she is truly invested and it shows by her actions. Our little family has a home and it’s because Jennifer was there every step of the way!” Mark Knudsen, Campbell

 

“Kris and Jen were both our selling and buying agents. They did a wonderful job of walking us through the process and answering any questions that came up along the way. They worked hard to make themselves available to us anytime we wanted to see a house outside of open house hours. We really appreciate all their hard work. Together, they are the perfect balance of business and kind-hearted personality.” - Rachel Cane-Cooley, Campbell 

 

“We had an excellent experience working with Jen & Kris who were very professional and knowledgeable and persevered to find us a place we liked in a competitive market. The aspect we liked most of all working with them was their flexibility in working with our family constraints. They guided us in a timely manner but giving us the time and space to make our own decisions. Their extensive professional contacts and networking abilities certainly made a difference in securing our house in a tight market.  We look forward to continuing our successful working relationship with them as we get ready to sell our home soon." Gitika & Sashi Balasingham, Los Gatos 

 

"We worked with Jennifer and Kris when we moved from Seattle to the Bay area in August 2013. We highly recommend them for any real estate transaction. Jen and Kris provided us great options in a highly competitive bay area market and found us a hidden gem in record time. Their intimate knowledge of the area, sophisticated approach, friendliness and integrity is unrivaled. We would use them for any future opportunity and recommend them very highly." - Tracy & Hichem Garnaoui, Monte  Sereno 

 

Jennifer and Kris are the best! They are very knowledgeable in every aspect of the process. They were very helpful and extremely responsive in listing and selling our property. The network of professionals that they pulled together to get the house ready for sale was price competitive and did a great job. We live remotely and they went above and beyond the call of duty to get our home ready and sold for us.  I doubt anyone else could have done as good a job as they did. Many thanks to them." - Tim Sulger, Campbell 

 

"Jen and Kris helped us purchase a home in Saratoga fall 2013. For the price range we were looking at, it was quite a challenge for us to buy in that neighborhood in a very competitive sellers' market. However, they seized a rare opportunity and made it work out. They did the homework to understand our needs and the seller's needs and recommended a proposal that was beneficial to both parties. They were creative and responsive - they pretty much did magic for us. It wasn't an easy transaction but they were with us every step. Most importantly, they are honest and have a high level of integrity. We are now enjoying our new home and we are very appreciative of their service. I would recommend Jen and Kris to anyone." - Ying Smith, Saratoga 

 

"It is a unique combination where two realtors are working as a team with you. The coverage, the scope and the availability is second to none. I don't know how they do that but that are always in sync and support each other and complement their skill-sets. I like the iterative work that they do while studying their clients desires and quest while guiding them gantlet to explore and to figure things out and support them till closing. I'm sure that we will work with this super team again." - Koby Avital, Sunnyvale

 

"Jen & Kris are professional, personable, and understand what families need. They helped us renovate and sell our home in a challenging market while securing another even when all odds seemed against us. They heard our story and made it happen - what a great team!" - Sarah &Anthony Robinson, Monte Sereno

 

"Throughout my career as a commercial real estate agent, I have met countless residential Realtors and none have impressed me as Jennifer Colson has. It is true that she worked tirelessly to find us the right house and true that she was always available to hold our hands at any hour but where she really excelled is in negotiating. We purchased our house in the summer of 2012 and the market was very competitive. She not only made our family and our offer stand out among the other 5 offers on the table (2 days after the house came on the market)- she did this without being the highest bidder.  I am impressed and recommend her hands down." Dave Geissberger, San Jose

 

“Kris and Jen did a great job when we bought our house with them. Kris made an effective, concerted effort to canvas our target neighborhood, tapping into her and Jennifer's vast personal network to find out what houses might be going on the market in the area well beyond just the listed properties. This above-and-beyond effort helped us be sure that the house we ended up buying was the right one for us. In addition, at the tail end of our negotiations with the buyer (themost important time), when it appeared that we might hit a point of gridlock in our negotiation, Kris and Jen stepped up to the plate and did a really great job making both sides of the table come together and make the deal happen. Although most of our engagement was with Kris this time around, our experience with Jen was that she was pleasant, professional, and intelligent to work with. Most importantly Jennifer and Kris work cohesively as a team such that their customers effectively get two realtors for the price of one.” -Tom Mader, Los Gatos

 

"My wife Jody and I highly recommend Jennifer and Kris. We got prequalified and began looking for a home and, after much searching, Jennifer and Kris found us a wonderful place. Unfortunately, when we went to put the financing together, the bank had changed their loan requirements and the loan program we'd been planning on was no longer available to us. We had to start from scratch.  Jennifer and Kris refused to give up on us. They went back to the sellers, pushing hard on our behalf. They also worked closely with our broker to help us find additional financing. In the end, we got a loan we were comfortable affording, the home we wanted, and 4 points off the purchase price!! It was a wild experience along the way, but they walked us through it and we have no doubt that the transaction went through because of their dedication and commitment to us." - Mike Hurtado, San Jose

 

“This letter is written on behalf of Jennifer and Kris who were my choice for listing agents. In this difficult time for selling a property, I had many options, but Jennifer and Kris stood out immediately. They listened, made suggestions, and developed a realistic plan for the sale. I was amazed and pleased at their confidence, integrity, competence, knowledge about the market and market conditions. To say that I was pleased with their performance and representation on my behalf would be understated.  I would highly recommend Jennifer and Kris to anyone looking for honesty and professionalism.  You will not be disappointed. " - Larry Rugani, Los Gatos

 

"Thank you for being our real estate agent! You've been positive, efficient, highly ethical and have excellent negotiating skills.   We couldn't have done it without you.   Thanks again."- Greg Spencer, San Jose

 

"From very early on Jennifer was confident that we would get the property even with all my pessimism regarding the short sale process. Oddly enough, as the weeks went on we managed to reduce the sale price, drop my interest rate by a full point, and received a credit for the closing costs…. Very Nice! Even with all of the new standards regarding the mortgage qualification process a short sale property, and a first time purchase, I came away thinking that buying a house wasn’t nearly as painful as everyone had led me to believe. I’m going to attribute my success to the skills and experience that Jennifer and Kris bring to the process." - Steve Hatch, San Jose

 

“Due to a life change, I found myself in the market to buy a house in a specific area with a very minimal budget. Given the market conditions, my search criteria was nearly impossible. However, Kris and Jennifer took the time to better understand my personality and capabilities and introduced me to a house that fit my criteria, but was in dire need of attention. Through their expertise and creativity, they helped me see its potential and now I am living happily in my gorgeous new home! Thank you Kris and Jennifer for your guidance and patience in making my dream a reality!” - ValerieTamasi, Los Gatos

 

“Selecting the right Realtor to sell your home is always a difficult task. To make matters more difficult we planned to move several thousand miles away just prior to putting our home on the market. We interviewed several agents. Jennifer Colson and Kris Kamali immediately stood out from the rest for their professionalism and market knowledge.  We needed someone who we could trust to carry out our wishes with limited direction as we were very busy moving out of state. They exceeded our expectations in her handling all the details of the sale as well as some issues with required termite work. We were kept well informed of all details of the sale and received excellent advice on how to negotiate the multiple offers we received. They are very personable, easy to work with experienced Realtors who work hard to close a sale.  Our home sold and closed in less than a month at above the asking price! And the "team" of Jennifer and Kris is a clear benefit. Jennifer was our primary agent, but when Kris stepped in we did not have to explain anything to her; she was fully up to date on the details of the sale and everything moved forward as planned. Jennifer and Kris are professional, highly experienced, skillful negotiators. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.  They made the whole process easy and simple.  We have sold several homes over the years and this team is the best we have ever worked with.” - Lucy Williams, San Jose

 

“In July of 2010 my father passed away in San Jose. I was the trustee of the estate and I live out of town. I was recommended by my estate attorney to market the house through the team of Jennifer and Kris.  Kris met with me and brought neighborhood property comparisons and a complete file on the services they would provide. They were realistic about the market and the price the property could generate.  The house was in disrepair, but they arranged for a contractor to clean the property up inside-and-out and had it staged to show its potential. Jennifer helped me through the multiple offers explaining my options based on the different stipulations and allowed me to make a decision.  I was made to feel very much at ease through the entire process without pressure or undue phone calls, and after the sale was complete they both followed up several times to make sure there wasn't anything else needing their attention or any unanswered questions. I would recommend the team of Colson/Kamali to ANYONE either in the market to sell or buy.  My experience with them was nothing but positive from start to finish.” - Mark Thomas, San Jose

 

“Congratulations and heartiest thank you to Jennifer and Kris also for the outstanding effort and experience we have had in working with them on both the selling and purchase side. Their responsiveness and level of professionalism made the whole process move along smoothly. Jennifer & Kris are a great Realtor team who helped us sell and buy our house in Saratoga. They were extremely professional, personable and very knowledgeable about the local real estate market. We sold our house in 2 weeks with multiple offers and the transaction closed smoothly due to their meticulous planning. We would recommend them to anyone considering buying or selling a house.”- Rajat & Sapna Garg, Saratoga

 

“I would like to say thank-you one more time. I am so glad that we worked together; it is a rare privilege to work with the best, and you and Kris are certainly the best. I wish you both a long and prosperous career. If we ever move back to San Jose you will be one of the first people I call.”- Tiffany Gale, San Jose
