Does It Take A Village OR Just A Great Team Effort

Real Estate Broker/Owner with KD Realty - 408.972.1822 CA BRE#01366594

When I get to write a post like this one it reminds me of why I do what I do and why I love what I do.  In the end it all boils down to HELPING PEOPLE. 


I truly love to help people.  

It is true - I am paid for what I do. I certainly deserve to be paid for my work. I am a small business owner not a non-profit charitable organization.  

As an Independent San Jose Real Estate Broker I do give regularly to charitable organizations that help people and pets. 


It all brings me much happiness and joy.


This post is to celebrate my clients closing on their new construction home in the Sacramento area.  


new construction home in the Sacramento CA area


My clients and I want to give a shout out and special thanks to Tom Parke and his team at Mason McDuffie Mortgage. 

Tom is a member of the Mason McDuffie President's Club. The Tom Parke Team is ranked in the top 1% of mortgage originators nationwide for production! 

Tom and his team redefine the term "production" in the mortgage industry. Their process is seamless. They do not miss a beat. Their business runs like a well-oiled machine with exceptional customer service to their clients and the clients real estate agent.  


Thank you Tom, David and Jamie.  

Our clients are very happy in their new home.

Hi Kathleen --- like a well-oiled machine, when something is not working quite right, problems/issues can arise.  Here's to paying attention to details along the way and happy endings.
