Our Guarantee

We believe that we should earn your business. If we do not do what we say we’re going to do, you can walk away from our contract for any reason or no reason at all with 72 hour written notice. The fact is, I don’t want to be in business with someone that I don’t feel is doing a good job, and neither should you.” ~ Peter Kima

Our team leader, Peter Kima, often references that his family has one contract, a Verizon contract, and that’s it. He doesn’t like contracts, but due to Commission rules and regulations, they are a necessity in the real estate industry.

There’s a lot of risk in both time and marketing dollars to list and marketing the home, and that risk falls on us. We do not charge a retainer fee like a lot of other top agents. We believe in earning your business.


One of the many values of our team is being able to reach out to more than one person. If you need to communicate with someone on our team and you can’t reach one of us, there are additional people to whom you can reach out. Our clients have access to each team member’s direct cell phone number. While we do have personal lives and kids’ baseball games on the weekends, school events, vacations, etc. (we’re humans just like you) – we do strive to have someone on the team always within reach for our clients.

Feedback & Follow-Up

We get it! We understand how important it is for sellers to get real feedback and not just generic feedback that’s plugged into a computer. We dig deeper. We attempt to have conversations with the showing agents about your home. This allows both the seller and our team to adjust accordingly, if need be, to quality feedback.

Another powerful level of communication that we are highly engaged on is feedback after showings. We won’t stop asking for that feedback from the showing agents until we get it. It’s crucial for both the sellers, and us as the listing team, to have that feedback from the potential buyers and the showing agents perspectives. While some agents will let the showing system send out the emails asking for feedback and leave it at that, we will pick up the phone and call daily – sometimes multiple times a day – asking for feedback until we have an answer. As sellers, we know how important this feedback is, whether there is potential interest or not.
