"I'm amazed at how helpful Steve and his team have been for me and my spouse. They found an near-perfect house for us in the Oakland Hills, with lots of space for the price, loads of character, and gorgeous views. They even went to see it during a weekday without us and, realizing it was a wonderful find, arranged for us to return the same evening and got our initial offer accepted the next morning, and helped us expedite the appraisal and financing to ensure that our purchase was successful.

Steve has even gone out of his way, using his own time and energy, to help me renovate and upgrade my old SF condo, and is helping me market it to renters.

If you want a realtor who really knows the Bay Area market, is passionate about real estate, and knows how to get things accomplished, I highly recommend Steve"

If you want a realtor who really knows the Bay Area market, is passionate about real estate, and knows how to get things accomplished, I highly recommend Steve.Steve helped us successfully navigate a very difficult set of "hurdles" to eventually purchase a bank owned property. Steve acted as the consummate professional in all phases of the project. He, even recommended successful secondary financing after having trouble with the first lender. In the future if I were to purchase/sell another property, he would be be my first choice as broker. I thoroughly recommend him!"

"I can't say enough good things about Steve West! He's very professional and patient. He is so easy to work with. My favorite characteristic about Steve is his honesty. I can ask his opinion on any property and get candid, straightforward response. He has also helped my family sell 3 homes in San Francisco, each time exceeding our expectations with suggestions on simple home changes before the each sale. His choice of colors, lighting and staging blew us away and one sold for almost 30% more than we expected. I trust him and I would refer him to anyone who needs an excellent, design savvy, knowledgeable & trustworthy realtor!"

I worked with Kimberly Sterling to purchase a condo in San Francisco and was extremely impressed. She has lived in the city for a long time and is an expert on the neighborhoods and real estate market. After an initial phone call we spent a Sunday going to open houses together. She was very quickly able to understand exactly what I was looking for and help me understand the pros and cons of all the properties we looked at. She was great at sourcing units to look at and was even able to find great properties that had not yet been listed on trulia/redfin etc. The market is really crazy right now and I was worried about getting into a bidding war or having to go WAY over asking to get a place I was satisfied with. She took the lead on the whole process and helped me make competitive offers that I was comfortable with. Overall the process was much smoother, quicker and easier than I had been expecting. Kimberly really did a great job.Additionally, after moving into my amazing new condo, Kimberly has continued to be a resource for me. She has happily gone out of her way to assist me with any and all questions / concerns I've had about being a new homeowner in sf.  I would strongly recommend Engel & Volkers and Kimberly Sterling without hesitation.

I've bought and sold many homes and Kimberly Sterling was the most "hands on" and customer focused agent with whom I've worked. She and Steve listened well and repeatedly took actions that enhanced the value and made the process easier and quicker. She also went far "above and beyond" the norm in dealing with the details of a difficult remodeling job and some challenging personalities. In the end, she managed and delivered a bidding and closing process extremely well, resulting in a very fast "listing - to close" at a price far above both the asking price and the expected sales prices of the home. I very strongly recommend them.

"My experience with Steve was great.  He has helped me on my search for an income property, and his expertise and guidance have been very helpful.  I have worked with several agents, and Steve has been a breathe of fresh air.  He tells me the truth (not just what he thinks I want to hear).  I feel that he not only knew what I wanted, but that my interest were being represented.  I am so glad I found him!"

“Kimberly has been our realtor and friend since 2005.  We met her when we bought our first property in San Francisco.  Since then, Kimberly has been our realtor on 2 other transactions.  Even though the value of our purchases are modest Kimberly always treats us like gold.  This is one of the many reasons we keep going back to her.  Kimberly is always able to answer even our most difficult questions.  She's very knowledgeable on TICs and TIC related issues.   Her professionalism and friendly calm demeanor puts everyone at ease. We have recommended her to others and have had nothing but positive feedback. Kimberly will continue to be our realtor when we're ready for our next real estate transaction.  We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a top notch realtor.”

"Steven exceeded my every expectation when listing my home.  He had a marketing team that created an instant buzz and had hundreds of viewers within the first 2 days.  He sold my house in 6 days and I can't believe how easy Steven made the process.  I would highly recommend him to represent me in any real estate transaction."

"We have so much to thank Kim for. If it weren't for her guidance and encouragement, we wouldn't be living in the beautiful house we're in today. She's thorough, helpful, and completely on top of all the little details that come with a real estate transaction."

“Kimberly helped us tremendously when we were planning to sell our SF home and downsize to a smaller place in the City. She knew exactly what we were looking for and was thorough in her search and relentless in looking for "the perfect place". She knows the City very well and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends and family.”

 "I contacted Steve to sell my home in Redwood Shores and help me buy one in SOMA.  The whole GoWest Group quickly painted and staged my home and helped me secure an offer within days of putting it on the market.  They even helped me with moving out of one place and into the next." I love the new place! They even helped me decorate my new home.  I couldn't have accomplished it like this without them, and I highly recommend Steve's team to anyone!

“In my neighborhood, there are many real estate brokers and the only one I can recommend is Kimberly Sterling. I have my reasons, but the primary one is based on knowing Kimberly as a neighbor for over 25 years. Our little dead end of a street has a tight web of neighborliness that extends to sharing small trivialities, parties, birthdays, kids, and watching out for one another. Kim is trustable. She can keep things confidential. She's upfront and honest with a deep sense of humor and fair play. She's not a greedy person who talks about the "deal" or the scheming that typically goes on with brokers. Her focus with the many clients I have referred was always to find them a good fit-a property that suited their needs and their pocketbooks. She handles transactions without anxiety and with a steady hand on the many elements that could go awry. She's responsible and able to remain calm despite the often turbulent deal making that characterizes SF real estate. Kimberley has maintained these traits for the many years I have known her. Always pleasant, always reliable, always first class. I think she's great."

"Steve has helped me buy and sell in SF several times.  We used 2 SF agents before we met him, and the difference between Steven and the others is a stark and refreshing difference. He took a stressful remodel in the right direction for a fraction of the price. His design ideas made 2 homes sell for more than asking and his marketing and staging made our transactions super quick.  Steve is a class act, I would suggest his team to anyone who needs to buy or sell in San Francisco."
