    Our family was relocating to California and I was nervous about finding a home for my family. Kerry McCarty took all our fears away! From the moment she became our realtor, she worked tirelessly to find us our dream home. She was patient, caring and went above and beyond for us. Even after we bought our house, Kerry helped set up contractors so we would be ready to move in after close. She really is the best! I would definitely hire her again.

    We recommend Kerry unequivocally. Because we had not bought or sold real estate for over 20 years, we chose to go to open houses to assess real estate agents. It was an enlightening experience! Some had inexperienced neophytes tending to their open house listings, some seemed bored and uninterested, as though all lookers were not buyers, and some seemed not to know the local area. By contrast, Kerry seemed genuinely interested in highlighting the selling features of the property she was holding open, she cited statistics and features of the neighborhood of her open house, and she struck a comfortable balance between "selling" us and listening to us. We scheduled an appointment to further interview her in our home, and were impressed by her candid thumbnail sketch of how she worked and what she expected of us (declutter, declutter, declutter, price it "right" and stage for best showing). Our confidence in her was rewarded by following her advice with her candid opinions (we wanted to do our own staging), vacating the property on short notice for a promising showing for an hour here, an hour there (yes, it was inconvenient and abrupt), but the "pain" (inconvenience) was short-lived. On the eighth day after listing she called to say that she needed to come over NOW to present an offer. When she arrived, she told us to sit down. We thought she was sort of joking, and replied something like "Yeah, right." But she said "No, I'm serious. Sit down." She presented an offer significantly above asking with the only contingency that we vacate the premises within 30 days. We also recall something about wanting a reply essentially immediately. Our knee jerk reaction was "For that much above asking, we could be out in three days!" To return to our opening comment, we recommend Kerry unequivocally because she is personable but direct, knowledgeable but not arrogant, assertive but not dogmatic, and totally focussed on results in the best interest of the client. That was exactly what we wanted and she delivered.

    The bottom line is that we described what would be "perfect" for us and Kerry accomplished it! Attentive, articulate, meticulous, and responsive are descriptions that best characterize our experience with Kerry. We met her at an open house and were impressed with her knowledge of the area, her experience in accomplishing objectives, and her confidence. We are meticulous long-range planners and told Kerry what our objectives were: sell at the best time of year to obtain the highest sale price; have the shortest possible sales cycle (minimize the inconvenience of being displaced by open houses) and minimize contingencies. The result: the highest sale price of properties similar to ours in our area, eight days from listing to offer acceptance, and zero contingencies. The last time we sold/bought was twenty years ago, and Kerry explained current California real estate requirements. She was available when we had questions, kept us informed of what had been accomplished and what to expect and when, and when challenged, articulately explained her rationale for each step. This literally could not have been better! We described our “perfection” and Kerry accomplished it!

    Selling our home was a very difficult decision to make. Having Kerry guide us through the selling process was a god-send. Kerry was professional, knowledgeable, businesslike, and yet understanding, patient and kind. Kerry was able to give us information, resources to review and evaluate to guide us in our decision to sell. Kerry kept us updated through the entire process. She was very good at explaining all the requirements we needed to meet. She was very accommodating with her time. After our home was sold, Kerry was still there to answer any questions we had. She even stopped by to say goodbye on our last day. The cherry on the top, was her willingness to check our home for some missed valuables a few days after we had left town. In our opinion Kerry is a true gem.

    Thank you Kerry for helping us purchase our first home in the South Bay. Kerry was very professional and knowledgeable. She provided all of the support that we needed while buying our home: She acted ethically throughout the process, and quickly built trust with us. She listened to our requirements, patiently clarified our concerns about the risks, clearly answered our questions, proactively worked with other parties to win the contract and close in a timely manner. She kindly kept us aware of every step and sent us follow-up emails/messages in all the milestones throughout the entire purchasing process, and after close. She never pushed us. When we were in a hard situation of making offer, she encouraged us to use the data and critical thinking to support our decision. After closing, she connected us with contractors, bridged us with the previous owner for a garden tour, helped us to attend the community event. Those kindly help really beyond our expectations. I believe Kerry can be a great resource to help you get/sell your home in the South Bay.

    As first time home buyers, we were nervous about the start-to-finish process of buying a condo. Kerry took the time to explain to us (multiple times) the various stages, timeline, and held our hand each step of the way. She made the entire process seamless and enjoyable! She was extremely flexible and accommodating, especially given that we were traveling during most of the buying process. We ended up with our top choice condo for less than the asking price, even after a bidding war with another interested buyer! Kerry went above and beyond to make additional visits to the property, explain in great detail what we were signing, and even attended our meeting to sign the final loan documents to make sure we were comfortable and in good hands. She is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and truly makes the extra effort for her clients! We could not recommend her enough and will continue to use her in our future purchases/sales.

    Kerry sold us this home in 2006. After my husband passed away in 2016, she is the only realtor I contacted to help me sell my home for my move back to the East Coast. Kerry is a consummate professional, who is totally knowledgeable about the Willow Glen real estate market. She is extremely detailed oriented and understands all the contractual details of the necessary paperwork involved in the buy/sell of a home. Her negotiating skills are excellent and timely. She went beyond just the routine needs of the sale for me. She helped me with many extra unforeseen matters that arose and saw that they got done. The dedication to her clients is what is first and foremost to Kerry. I would highly recommend Kerry McCarty to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home. She is excellent, and you can rest assured that Kerry will properly and diligently take care of everything for you. Adriane G.

    Kerry McCarty is an outstanding real estate professional who is excellent with myriad details. Though I talked to others, she was the one I immediately felt comfortable with. Since I was embarking on a new journey, I wanted someone that I felt was knowledgeable, would listen when I had questions or concerns, and would watch out for my interests as well. She never tried to influence or push me into something I didn't want to do, but would gently offer advice and then allowed me to make up my own mind. She has been a mentor, friend, trusted advisor, and tireless worker on my behalf. She was always patient, helpful and was there for me in whatever context I needed her to be. I'm 78 and sometimes became overburdened and tired, but she was always a strong, supportive shoulder to lean on when I needed it. Kerry helped in immeasurable ways throughout the process and I couldn't have possibly done it without her help and support. She is an amazing human being and realtor that you can wholeheartedly trust. Amazing qualities in today's world. I value her and her expertise greatly.

    My wife and I worked with Kerry on two separate transactions: we sold our condo and we bought a new single family home. Both times she was fantastic: she is always timely, always responsive, on top of what is required and does all of this with a smile and in such a personable way. We felt at ease both times we had to sell or buy a home and that's all we could have hoped for. Additionally, she just really takes care of you as her client! For those who choose to work with her know. Buying: Kerry met with us to discuss what was most important to us. She came prepared each time with comps, what was showing up as available homes on her end, information about the homes we would be looking at and patiently took us through the whole process. She was very attentive to our needs for the new home and worked with us in finding it. When it came time to submit our offers, she walked us through the process in detail to make sure we were comfortable with all the language and what we were offering. She was never rushed in working with us so we felt at ease to ask all of our questions as they came up. She was very knowledgable in putting together offers that would be competitive and would set us up for a response from the seller. In the end, we found our perfect home! Selling: Kerry met with us to discuss options, timing and her professional thoughts. She guided us through the process from A to Z and gave us her insight. Selling our condo had a few nuances to it due to a lien I had with the City of San Jose, but Kerry navigated through it like a pro. She even sat down with us to calculate what the numbers potentially would look like with different scenarios. She guided us through setting the price and getting the staging all squared away. When it came time for the offers, she gave us everything we needed to make the best decision. Once in contract, everything was scheduled purposefully and with care to make sure we closed on time, which we did. We exceeded our goals with the sale of the condo, so we're very thankful to Kerry for all she did! My wife and I whole heartedly would recommend Kerry to our friends and family. She knocked it out of the park for us!

    In one month,Kerry guided both the sale of one home and the purchase of another. She really knows her profession and carries it out with full attention to detail. These are the second and third times that Kerry has been my real estate agent. Although I swear I will never move again, I will ask Kerry to be my agent if I do. Thank you, Kerry, for your great work!

She patiently and efficiently guided my home search and, once the home was found, took the time to explain the intricacies of the buying process. Kerry was there for me day and night, answering questions and making sure that all details were taken care of. She is a fantastic agent and I would not hesitate to work with her again.

    Kerry is absolutely amazing. We had the pleasure of working with her to buy our first condo and we could not have been more pleased to have found her. She is the most attentive, dedicated, and candid realtor you could ever hope to work with. In a highly competitive market and with a small down payment, she was able to help us close over multiple higher offers. She is extremely responsive and answered all of our questions, including those we didn't even know to ask. To top it all off, she was extremely sweet and caring with us every step of the way. We had the best experience with Kerry and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

We are so lucky to have worked with Kerry. She really cares about her clients and goes the extra mile for them. She’s honest, completely trustworthy, quick to respond, and makes sure no detail is missed. I would highly recommend her whether you’re buying, selling, or both.

    Buying a new home is probably one of the most important and stressful experiences people encounter in their lives. Thankfully, I had an amazing realtor who made buying my first home as painless as possible. Not only did she keep me informed and educated throughout the entire process, she went above and beyond helping out with a letter and video to send to the seller. There is no doubt I wouldn't have been able to secure the home of my dreams without Kerry's help. Overall, I had an excellent experience with Kerry McCarty and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!

    This is the second time I've had the pleasure of working with Kerry. She recently helped me sell the home she helped my buy 6yrs ago. I honestly can't say enough about her professionalism, insight and knowledge of the local market. I had a number in mind going in. She came up with a plan and got almost $100k over what I was looking for. She did a great job when we bought the place which is why I tracked her down when I was ready to sell. Turned out to be a great decision on my part. I would highly encourage anyone looking to buy or sell to reach out to Kerry. I placed my full trust in her advice and it paid off. She's a tough negotiator, very organized, highly responsive and driven. Tremendous experience working with her and will absolutely work with her again. Thanks Kerry!

    We worked with Kerry for 7 months to buy our house. We are so pleased we found her, she has always been very professional and responsive. We always trusted her advice. She never suggested we wildly over bid to ensure a sale and ultimately we got a great house for a good price. We feel a major part of out successful bid was Kerry's professionalism, excellent communication and working relationship with the listing agent. Kerry always did exactly what she said she would do when she said she would do it. He attention to detail was amazing. Really can't speak highly enough of our experience.

    Kerry was my agent for purchasing and selling my condo that we owned over the last 4 years. She is very detailed, follows up, gets tasks accomplished in a timely manner and a great situational thinker/negotiator. This is why we went back to her for selling our place. Selling a house is a much different experience than buying, both of which Kerry has mastered in my mind. Kerry understands the market, promoting a property, pricing strategy and reading the situation. Most agents don't bring these skills to the table. She was able to get 3 offers and into contract within 2.5 weeks of being on the market (hot market). I strongly recommend using Kerry as your agent if you get the chance.

    Kerry met all of my expectations as a real estate agent. She even went above and beyond the call of duty working out minor early obstacles by constantly following up with my out-of-state lender and pulling teeth with the seller's real estate agent to get answers. I valued most, her advise and guidance when my short sale almost foreclosed before my closing date of Escrow. I would recommend Kerry to my friends and family for their real estate purchases. Kerry was my third real estate agent which I went through on my search for the perfect fit. Even several days after the close of Escrow, Kerry followed up with me to make sure everything was fine. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent. GREAT JOB KERRY!

    When I first signed up on Ziprealty's website, I was assigned Kerry as my agent. She gave me a call within a day of my signing up on the website to introduce herself. At the time, I was not actively looking for property, but more interested in browsing to see what was available on the website. I informed Kerry I was only browsing & she was very understanding & let me know that I could contact her if I had any questions or more actively started looking. I appreciated the fact that she was not pushy and did not constantly call me to see if my interest had changed. I began by browsing the properties on the website & was very pleased with the features available & the complexity of the searches I could perform. I found a number of properties on the website & decided to schedule appointments to view them. Once I scheduled them on the website, Kerry contacted me & we began viewing the properties I had marked my interest. She was very pleasant, easy to talk to, and worked hard to understand what types of properties I was interested in & find them. Kerry was the one who actually informed me about the property that I eventually bought. It being a new development, as soon as it appeared on Ziprealty's site, Kerry saw that it met the criteria I was looking for and informed me immediately. I credit Kerry with getting me in to see the property so early & getting the first pick of units available. Kerry was available for all meetings with the developers & was very helpful explaining aspects of the process that I did not understand. After the purchase, the escrow process went on for an extended period of time due to delays by the developer. Kerry kept close track of the status & let me know when anything changed. Throughout the entire home buying process, I was extremely satisfied with the service that Kerry provided.

    Kerry has an easy demeanor to work with. She is very responsive and did a great job of communicating and keeping us in the loop at all times. She facilitated the transaction in a seemless manner and always respected our input and wishes.

    Kerry McCarty was my agent in a long-distance buying process, and was helpful to me in my preliminary house search done online; during my visit to the South Bay Area to look at homes, make a selection and negotiate the purchase; and during the entire follow-up and completion of the purchase. As my representative in the area, she went above and beyond her required duties to make the process as smooth as possible. Consequently, I would recommend her services to anyone asking me for an agent in that area.

    Kerry McCarty is a consummate professional. She is (as I would expect) knowledgeable about the local market and of course all the elements of a real estate transaction. Kerry was generously accommodating of our schedule constraints for viewing homes. She was very patient and helpful throughout the entire transaction. Working with Kerry was the bright spot in an otherwise somewhat arduous endeavor.

    My husband and I found Zip Realty to be extremely responsive to our time sensitive relocation needs. We were able to view over a dozen of houses in our single house hunting weekend, as well as search extensively on Zip Realty's website in advance of our trip.

    KERRY WAS OUR AGENT IN SELLING OUR TOWNHOUSE & PURCHASE OF OUR NEW HOME. SHE DELIVERED 100% IN ALL ASPECTS OF BOTH TRANSACTIONS. SHE IS TRUE TO HER WORD, DEPENDABLE, TRUSTWORTHY, RELIABLE, & MOST OF ALL LISTENS & REMEMBERS TO ALL DETAILS & CONCERNS OF HER CLIENTS. MY HUSBAND & I WOULD BE HAPPY CERTIFY THAT SHE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST THAT AN AGENT CAN OFFER IN THE REAL ESTATE BUSINESS.

    She had been very very helpful in screening homes, setting schedules for showing, helping to cover all the aspects related to offers, inspections, closing etc., etc. She provided all the help necessary to find our home of choice.

    Kerry is very good at listening to what we wanted and was very patient with me when we had to wait for a while to find it. She knew her area well and it was a pleasure working with her.

    I was enormously impressed with Kerry McCarty. My transaction was complex as I am based in Japan and buying property in the SF bay area with a foreign loan. Kerry was fantastic! She communicated extremely well across multiple time zones and delivered above and beyond my expectations and in excess of what would normally be required of an agent. I could not be happier with the level of service. If/when I ever buy another house I will certainly be using Kerry as my agent. Professionalism and extremely determined to deliver are two key qualities that she possesses. Highly recommended.
