What Our Clients Are Saying....
We moved to CA and were referred to Brandon + Holly Kersis by a friend who had used them (and loved the experience). From day one (8 months ago) we have had a wonderful experience with them. We sat down and established our goals/priorities/pricing, and from that point, we received personalized listing updates (and off-market showings) that we wouldn't have gotten otherwise. We also had very close communication, with frequent texts at all hours of the day/night as we reviewed properties and provided feedback. He was reliable and dependable in these interactions, clearly demonstrating his passion for real estate, but also that his goal was for us to be completely satisfied. Brandon attended SO many open houses with us to walk through and hear us comment on style/location/pricing. He also arranged for various contractors to meet us in homes for walkthrough estimates, to help us appreciate what our true vision for a home would require financially. And he was very respectful of our price range and did not try to upsell us or force us into an uncomfortable position at any time. His knowledge was very helpful in determining unforeseen drawbacks of homes/locations, what the house would likely sell for, and (when it came time for us) what constituted a strong offer so that we weren't wasting our time with an unsuccessful offer. He was adept at guiding us away from homes/situations that would have been poor economic or quality-of-life choices. His patience and determination with us finally paid off when he found us an idyllic off-market property in the perfect court in the perfect area with the perfect school system. Because of our preparation, we had an offer to the listing agent the following day, and an accepted offer the day thereafter. Brandon handled all the scheduling and inspections without delay. The final close went incredibly smoothly with the efficient communication of Team Kersis and their trusted associates (shout-out to Cheri Cocoles at Fidelity National Title and Rick Olson at Commerce Home Mortgage). And because of their coordinated efforts, we were able to close within two weeks. In a field where who you know is just as important as what you know, the Kersis team proved why they are on top. We wouldn't recommend using anyone else to find your home.

Brandon has impressed me with his knowledge and dedication -- he is on top of all questions and/or suggestions. He extensively researches new innovative ways to grow real estate and has a real understanding of what the future of this industry needs. His skills and personality are what I look for in an agent. Holly is professional and knowledgeable and set me at ease right away. I really appreciated all their assistance and referrals from a mortgage lender to plumbers.

We have used the Kersis Team for our last four transactions. They are absolutely the best, we love them! Holly has decades of experience and respect for being an expert and top agent in the east bay. Her business partner and son Brandon are enthusiastic, patient and always available to explain things. It's obvious they care deeply about what they do which makes the process easier and stress-free. We couldn't have asked for a better experience between the two of them and they make a great team. We have referred a number of our friends to them and they recently gave us some really great warrior tickets for the referral!

My wife and I couldn’t have been more satisfied using the Kersis Team to find our new home. Brandon is passionate, enthusiastic, and determined while Holly provides invaluable experience and knowledge. My wife and I found navigating the current market stressful at times and asked Brandon to show us home after home. Brandon responded with patience and a positive attitude every single time. He steered us in the right direction without being pushy and helped us design offers that were competitive, creative, and within our parameters. We love our new home and can’t thank Brandon and the Kersis Team enough for all of their support. We will continue to use them in the future and we don’t hesitate to recommend the Kersis Team to anyone looking for a great realtor.

We were looking for someone who could sell our high-end luxury home swiftly and found the perfect team. Holly and Brandon have a reputation for selling homes quickly so we were in contact with them. We did not even need to speak to other agents as after our initial meeting with them we knew they were the team to sell our home. They came prepared with market research already done (which many agents do not do), and a full marketing plan ready to go. We were impressed. Brandon did an excellent job going above and beyond marketing our home as well as assisting in arranging typical items needed before putting a home on the market (photos, window, carpet cleaning, etc). As a busy family, he was very helpful in making these arrangements for us in a speedy timeframe. Holly did a fantastic job selling our beloved neighborhood and the beautiful features of our home as well. After the first showing, we had 5 compelling offers. They both explained the offers in detail to us and helped us make the best decision.
We couldn't have asked for a better team! I highly recommend them! you again for everything you made happen!!!
- Lesley W. | Alamo CA
AMAZING! Brandon did it all, even with me living on the opposite coast. I contacted the Kersis team when I desperately needed to sell my place and fast. With a tough market, one thing I decided to do was do a full facelift of the kitchen. Brandon handled all the details and got it done in under 1 week!!! He coordinated contractors, picked out granite and backsplash, and got me a great deal on everything. I couldn't have done this without the Kersis team's help. What an amazing experience. I would recommend the Kersis team to anyone looking to buy or sell and they will certainly be my go-to next time I'm in California!
Thank you again for everything you made happen!!

Holly Kersis puts the Real in Real Estate. From my first meeting with her until the last I knew that her honest and direct approach to finding me a home was real! Today with home prices at all-time high, many enter and practice the real estate profession with only one desire: commission. For them, Real Estate does not mean get real rich real fast! And for many agents you are just a number to add to their success rate. You deserve to be viewed as more than a dollar sign or a number. You deserve a professional with experience to get the job done and with compassion to think of you when doing it. With Holly, you will only ever need one real estate agent for buying or selling. She is the real deal!
-Anthony K. | Founder, Art for Life Foundation
Holly has assisted us in the sale and buying of five properties in the past four years. In each case, she has always exhibited the highest degree of professionalism and reliability. No matter what situation arises, Holly is always ready to spend whatever time is necessary to bring each transaction to a successful conclusion. She is always personable and her people skills allow her to deal successfully with a variety of people and personalities. We can recommend Holly, without reservation, as a dedicated real estate professional that brings experience and integrity to all of her associations.

As a contractor, I have sold many houses and dealt with many Realtors. You will be my Realtor again on the next house I sell in Contra Costa County. You did an incredible job. You were always informed and aware of where the transaction was and what needed to be done. I could rely on you completely to keep things moving smoothly. You were in control and got things done. Thank you. I will be calling you again."
