I moved to the Silicon Valley with my family in 2000 after moving up and down the East Coast. I know what it takes to pack up and relocate to a new location.

Testimonials for Anja Kerstens
"Anja handled four transactions for us in 2015 and they could not have gone better! She made sure, thru staging and marketing that our properties for sale sold fast and for a higher price then we were asking and our dream home purchase went thru even though is was a short sale and we were out of the country for part of the time She is very professional and wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend her as would my husband" Debi and Dave V.
Our Realtor Anja Kerstens from Coldwell Banker in Morgan Hill, CA listed our home for sale, she didn't just list the house but she built a relationship with my wife and me that lasted. We know it is challenging to get any house ready for sale but Anja made it EASY for us. She staged our home with very good furniture and she guided us through the entire process.
She scheduled contractors for inspections and provided the people to fix any problems.
Her expertise in marketing our home was excellent. We sold our home at an excellent price, my wife and I were very pleased with her as our Realtor.
We really appreciated her honesty and integrity.
Dario & Marvel L.
First and foremost...Thank you Anja for getting us into our dream home.
If it were not for your diligence and effort in our home purchase, my family and I could be staring all over looking for another maybe not so perfect home. After dealing with a few realtors, you proved to be the right one. You gave us peace of mind throughout the entire process and never wavered under any of the pressures we placed on you.
In our case we purchased a short sale that had a few hick-ups along the way. Anja's experience smoothed out the kinks and kept things going in a timely manner. She provided feedback at all times about what was going on and how long resolutions would take. Her attention to the details and her promptness to work for us was commendable and an understatement.
I tried working with three other realtors before Anja and in comparison she was far and above the one who actually cared about my family's needs and wants. We never felt lost or unsure of what was going to happen next. She answered our calls, emails and text without hesitation. Not once did she make us feel anything other than being her one and only client. She went the extra mile to get us the house we wanted. I would recommend Anja and place her at the top of my "A List".
If you are in need of a realtor, please look no further... Anja will work for you.
Thank you so much,
Anja, I can’t begin to thank you enough for your endless time and patience during this wild process! It’s been an exciting but emotional time and I am so grateful to have had your support and expertise throughout it all. Thank you so very much! Sara
