Dear Kathy,

It was such a pleasure working with you once again in the purchase of my new home! It is hard to believe that this is now our fourth transaction together. As you will remember, we met when you represented the buyers on my property on Via Coronel in 1994.  I was so impressed with your professional demeanor and your ability to care so well for your buyers' interest, I knew that i wanted you to represent ME in my next real estate transaction. I must say that I was very astute in recognizing a wonderful agent. We have been together ever since that day!

This most recent purchase once again reminded me why it is so very important to work with a professional who has not only achieved years of experience in her field, but also has a great bank of knowledge and marvelous tact in working with both home sellers, buyers and agents alike.  During these challenging times, your ability to recommend funding options was so very useful. Your financial expertise was demonstrated many times in dealing with my mortgage broker, banks and financial institutions.  Your tenacity and ability to recognize opportunity were, as always, right on!  When there are hitches in a transaction, you are at your best, researching, calling, assisting, until the problem is resolved.  I know that I can sleep at night while you are energetically solving problems and assuring that a smooth transaction will ensure.

I look forward to listing my present house with you and know that I will continue to receive the excellent and caring service that I have become accustomed to receiving.  Please don't hesitate to give my name and phone number as a referral to any prospective clients in the future.  Once again, thank you most sincerely for your wonderful service in both the selling and purchase of real estate in Palos Verdes.

Dear Kathy,

We are finally settled in to our new home in Lake Almanor. We never would have gotten here without all you efforts. As you know, we had been trying to sell our home in Rancho Palos Verdes for over six years with no success until we found you. You were the last of five agents that we used. Of course, I wish you had been the first. If you were, it probably would not have taken six years to find a buyer. Your perseverance and marketing techniques were the difference, I'm certain of that. The Coldwell Banker name was also important. Your picture layout of our home in the Coldwell Banker magazine is what initially got our buyer interested. Your knowledge of our home and how you described its features during your many subsequent conversations with the buyer's agent are what ultimately closed the deal.

We just wanted you to know how much we appreciated all the time and effort that you spent on the sale of our home. If we can ever be of help to you by singing your praises to prospective clients, please don't hesitate to ask us. You are simply the best at what you do and people should know this. Thank you again.

Dear Kathy,

Carol and I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided in marketing and selling our home. We were very impressed with your assessment of the current residential market and your outstanding marketing of our home to potential buyers. Your superior marketing skills generated immediate interest in our home and produced a rapid sale. Carol & I both feel that we achieved a higher sale price than we would have without your skilled negotiating and marketing expertise. Your advice to make small "beautification" improvements was well received based on the numerous complements we received on the overall appearance of our home.

Based upon our previous real estate experiences, we know that each transaction has its own challenges and this one was no exception. However, each time a challenge occurred, you maintained a very calm and professional approach to the situation and developed a favorable solution. We greatly appreciated your ability to manage through these situations and commend you on having "grace under pressure."

We would warmly welcome an opportunity to serve as reference to any for your prospective clients that may wish further information about your capabilities and professionalism. If we return to the South Bay area, we would look forward to having you represent us again.

This letter is to let you know how impressed we are with Kathy Tillson. My wife and I have had the opportunity to observe Kathy both as a buyer and as a seller. She was the listing agent for the home we recently bought on Via Lopez. There is no question that she talked us into spending more for the house than I was prepared to pay and kept the deal together at several points where my wife and I were considering termination escrow. She did this in such a fair, charming and professional manner that we engaged Kathy to sell our home on Via Estudillo.

As the potential seller in this second transaction, I have been impressed by Kathy's marketing strategy, by her ad copy and brochures (with a superb color picture), and by her quick insightful responses to potential buyer concerns and tenacity in following up with potential buyers.

I had the good fortune of having Kathy Tillson serve as our broker while selling our home. After interviewing eight different agents, we decided on Kathy given her knowledge, her grasp of the accurate values of adjacent properties, her professionalism, marketing knowledge and affable personality. We were not disappointed.

She immediately went to work by offering suggestion on how to beautify the property and listed several ways that she intended to market our house. She was sensitive to our needs for privacy while also aware of the importance of profiling the property to as many prospective buyers and agents as possible.
When occasional problems developed, she worked to resolve them quickly. She was patient, at the same time resolute and determined to give her best efforts in the client’s interest. She kept on top of the property concerns and was in regular contact with me as I was with her. She always took the time to explain specific details or answer questions.

Mrs. Tillson is a good negotiator and has a good rapport with fellow brokers. I learned a great deal by talking to her and watching her skillfully craft responses to incoming offers. She has high expectations for workers that were called upon to perform specific duties. Kathy is direct, professional, conscientious and always looks out for the best interest of her clients. I wholeheartedly recommend Kathy. Her various talents as a broker are clearly evident and it has been a real pleasure having her represent us.
