Client Testimonials

Kate Stevenson from Alan Pinal recently represented me in two transactions. My doctor advised that moving would be too stressful for me but it had to be done and Kate helped make it as stress free as possible.

Scheduling showings of your home when it is for sale is never easy, but it is particularly difficult if you have pets. Kate helped me strategize how to move and then sell my home, eliminating this issue all together.

Kate impressed me by her great listening skills and her willingness to brainstorm and come up with practical and creative solutions. Her knowledge and mastery of the rigors of the Real Estate business was only surpassed by her ability to help me comprehend each step. From the estate sale, the commercial cleaners to the stagers she was right there helping. I would recommend Kate Stevenson for any purchase or sale if you want to remain sane and calm.

Five stars for Kate Stevenson.

We met Kate after researching realtors in our area and were impressed by her friendly, approachable style and extensive knowledge of the local market. She advised us on pricing and scheduling while keeping our expectations in check and remained upbeat in a rapidly changing market. Kate gave us advice about preparing our house for selling and helped us find an appropriate stager with whom we could work. She prompted us on upcoming deadlines in a timely manner, yet was responsive to our concerns and suggestions and easy to work with. In summary, Kate did a great job of helping us negotiate the challenges of house selling with the minimum of stress.

Kate helped us with every step of the process of selling our home. From decluttering to staging to finding the appropriate services we needed to get our home ready, she was responsive, resourceful and accommodating. As we moved through the process, we were always able to reach her with questions and concerns, and she always met our needs. She worked with us to find the right property for our new home and created an offer which was accepted. All in all, a very positive process and relationship!


I am a first time homebuyer and I chose Kate based on a friend's recommendation (who had recently purchased a home with her). Kate is a pleasure to work with. She has been very helpful in explaining the homebuying process and is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. I am optimistic that with Kate's help I will soon be able to my first home.


Finding your dream home is no small task and finding the right realtor for the job is almost as difficult. We were lucky! Kate Stevenson helped us purchase our dream home and made it as easy and stress free as possible. With her professional and friendly demeanor you get all of her attention even late at night! She knows the Bay Area because she grew up here and she knows the schools because she has school age children herself. She really listened to our needs and helped us decide on the best neighborhood for our family. If you want a realtor who is patient, detail oriented, savvy, and puts you first then Kate Stevenson is your lady.


We were renting our home in San Mateo when our landlord called us to say "buy our house or move- we want to sell". Kate helped us figure out how to proceed, advised us on negotiations, and managed all of the steps purchasing a home requires. The process took two months and Kate was always available, met with us in person and over the phone, and was super prepared and organized throughout. She was a pleasure to work with. We recommend her highly!

Judith and Daniel

Kate is an excellent realtor. Driven, persistent, professional, and thorough. She followed through and didn't give up until I was finally top bidder on a property that is a good match for me. Thanks, Kate!


Kate was a great help in getting us our first home. She is not a pushy buyer's agent, she knew what our parameters were and kept us informed of new listings but let us proceed at our own pace without suggesting properties that we weren't really interested in. She was also diligent in helping us close a deal that had several roadblocks along the way to closing.
