Testimonials

“Viv was excellent – driving us forward but not being too pushy. She worked very well with us both – very different personalities. She priced the property just right – we sold it right away for 10% over the asking price. Her video of our home was so sweet it made me cry! And when I told her that, she called me right away to talk to me. She is both caring and professional!

We also loved the FREE staging. Why would you go anywhere else?”

Saili Gosula, San Mateo.

 

 “I have worked with Viv prior to her selling my house. The two of us have worked together, me in Interior Design, and Viv as a Realtor, providing her clients with all aspects of service when buying or selling a home. Viv goes above and beyond to assist with all aspects of home buying and selling and is knowledgeable about the market. Watching her professionalism with clients and her unprecedented marketing plan, it was no contest to whom I would choose to sell my home this past March. Her marketing plan and access to resources made the prep and execution of my home sale pleasant, organized and successful. I had many choices of realtors, but to me, there was no other choice.. I wanted my home sold for the right price without the worry that goes into this process. Viv took care of everything and negotiated the best price in a short period of time. I am absolutely sure my home sold so well because of Viv and her talent. I will refer her to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell a home. You are in the right hands if you choose Viv..I know I was.”

“I talked to several realtors before Viv and nobody was interested in helping me prepare my house for sale. I needed help and encouragement and Viv was there for me. She gave me the right suggestions and kept me going. She made my husband feel excited about the move and helped us find the BEST new house for us. She always listened to our needs and helped us all along the way. Viv is a designer too and helped us remodel and then staged our house beautifully! She had lots of connections and referred us to professionals who all did a great job. Our house sold for way more then we though it would and we got our new house for way less then the asking price. She made a great professional video of our house that was just amazing, it looked like it came straight off of HGTV!”

“Vivienne is without doubt as good as it gets. She worked with us ensuring our condo was in the best shape for sale. Her staging, photographs, and video all served to showcase our property. 
Vivienne’s a great communicator and kept a clear line of communication with us during the entire process. She put a lot of effort and energy into selling our condo and it came as no surprise that, with her representation and the work she put in, we were able to close the sale with the minimum of delay. I would recommend Vivienne Kelvin to anyone who was in the market for a highly effective, and very friendly and personable, real estate agent.”

Kevin Mackay, Foster City

 

“Viv is a stellar realtor. She brings a ton of energy and enthusiasm to every part of the house-buying experience. So many people warned me how stressful this process would be, but Viv made it easy. She is an exceptional negotiator and helped us make a really smart investment for the future of our family. I highly recommend her.”

Clare and Peter Kirk, San Mateo

 

Viv made the process of finding, making an offer, and closing on a new house very easy and stressless. I would recommend her to anyone needing a realtor. 
Viv is not your “typical” realtor. She is the best I have ever worked with.”

“Vivienne Kelvin is excellent, a top-notch realtor. From the moment we first met Vivienne, she worked tirelessly to help us find the home of our dreams. She answered our questions promptly and was always readily available to meet with us. Even in the crazy housing market of the San Francisco Bay Area, Vivienne taught us to remain positive and showed us that indeed, there was a house out there for us. She guided us with professionalism, kindness, and understanding. What we really loved about Vivienne is that never felt like her “clients,” rather she treated us as friends. We highly recommend Vivienne Kelvin, for she will exceed your expectations and is simply, the best at what she does!”

Brigid Doherty & Sebastian Caballaro, San Mateo.

 

“Vivienne is hands down the best realtor I have worked with. She is very responsive, professional and detail oriented. She is extremely knowledgeable about the local area and the market conditions. Vivienne is more than just another realtor, she becomes invested in finding the perfect home for your wants and needs, very no pressure in her approach, patient, and always remains positive and focused on the goal. There were days where I became defeated by the market conditions, but she made sure to lift me up, cheer us on and never let me forget that the perfect house will come…and it did! We have found our realtor for life!”

Lori Millang & Matt Stewart, Belmont

 

“Viv was an absolute pleasure to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable, respectful and caring with a no pressure approach. She worked with us for about a year to find the right home; and when we did, she made the entire buying process painless. We would recommend her to everyone. When ever we are in the market to buy or sell, she will be our first call.”

Lisa Kirkendall, Belmont.

 

 “I cannot say enough good things about this angel who save me at a time when my Mother had just past away. It was my mother’s ondo and it was a mess. Vivienne came in and helped me get rid of everything, helped me find people to do a lot of the work. Very positive thinking when I was ready to give up. Staged the condo, sold the condo and has been a great friend. Very supportive and responsive to all my needs and more. If you need a Realtor this is the person YOU SHOULD CALL!”

James Keith Burlingame.

 

“Viv is terrific!  We are first time home buyers.  Viv was great to work with–she listened carefully to us, helped us figure out what was realistic in this crazy market, and helped us make an offer in lightening time (she stayed up late into the night answering all of our questions and remaining calm and patient).  If you are looking in the San Carlos area and surrounding areas  I highly recommend Viv!”

Jennie Doberne, San Carlos.

 

“I just bought my first house and Vivienne was my Realtor. Viv helped me through the process with spunk and confidence. Start to finish it was a pleasure! Mornings were spent looking at interesting houses, and not so interesting houses, followed by lunch and recap of the day’s houses.
She had her eye on all the possibilities for me, and did not wait till the sheet with the new houses came out– she contacted me immediately so I could see them first.
When we finally found my dream house she proceeded with the same confidence and style that I have come to expect from her. With her expert guidance and a fabulous group of brokers, architects and contractors we were able to make it possible for me to make this dream a reality.
If you want a great experience buying or selling your house, I think you should seriously consider Vivienne Kelvin. She did it for me with style and grace, and she can do it for you too.”

Janet Campbell, Belmont
