If you are looking for a stellar real estate agent, Kerrin Shettle delivers! When I was ready to engage the services of a real estate agent to assist me in locating and purchasing a property in northern California, Kerrin was the consummate professional. Before I selected the property I now own, she listened closely to my needs and responded with a number of considerations to begin our search. As properties that fit my criteria were identified, we would review together and then she would follow up with her detailed review and impartial analysis of each property. This was process was extremely educational and demonstrated her vast knowledge of the real estate market, but also, most impressively, her commitment to locate the right property that would fit my objectives.
As soon as my property was identified and offer accepted, Kerrin's continued commitment to be involved as needed through the title and escrow process until closing was unwavering. Without hesitation, I recommend Kerrin to anyone I know who wants to purchase or sell a property.
Thank you Kerrin!

Kerrin was amazing, she stayed with me for a year because I had some specific needs for my new home and a tight price range in a tough market. She looked after me like I was family. Kerrin is a true professional, she knows the business, she is trustworthy and she always kept my best interests in mind.

I was planning to relocate and purchase property in Sonoma County. I found Kerrin via an internet search. We met in person soon afterwords, beginning an arduous 2+ year search for a place that fit my picky tastes and tight budget.
Following my many, many trips to the area - Kerrin continued to support me in our search efforts while other realtors might just have said "see ya" after so much time expended without a purchase. But Kerrin remained as always - prepared, professional and ever-optimistic as we continued our extended drive-abouts. We must have visited hundreds of listings over those 2 years covering the backroads of rural Sonoma county - north to south and east to west.
Finally, upon locating just the right place and working to negotiate a better price, Kerrin diligently led me through the home inspections, endless escrow paperwork to the final sale.
Needless to say, we've become close friends. So if you're looking for an experienced professional with a positive, upbeat attitude who will hang in there and help you realize your future home dreams - be sure to call Kerrin! I give her 10 STARS out of 5!

I've worked with thousands of real estate agents in the Bay Area in over a decade of marketing and advertising work in the industry, and Kerrin is one of my all time favorites. I've rarely, if ever, seen a realtor so focused on her clients' needs in the most sincere and focused sense.
In an industry where so much of the process is dominated by the awards and personal accolades of the agent, Kerrin shifts the paradigm and puts all of the focus on finding her clients the perfect properties for their want list, putting her clients #1 rather than herself. And from a colleague perspective, working with Kerrin is a sheer joy; relaxed, available, responsive, no-nonsense, focused on the bigger picture as well as the minute details. I highly recommend her work.

We have known and worked with Kerrin Shettle for 7 years, during which she has helped us find and buy both our home and investment real estate. Kerrin is passionate about finding people the perfect property for their needs. She has in- depth knowledge of the market, of quality and value in specific property; and, she knows intimately the local real estate community. With her high energy style, she is relentless in finding great property and then working the details of transactions that are in the best interest of her client.
We have always felt that she would do anything to make sure we got the best deal possible and would do anything to steer us away from a deal that wasn't in our best interest. We have never felt like she was interested in compromising on our best interest, just to get a deal closed. Kerrin is not the stereotypical "realtor"; she doesn't plaster her name or picture on her materials, she doesn't advertise relentlessly, and she doesn't present herself as anything other than who she is. She is honest, sincere, and passionate. By far, she is the best realtor we have ever worked with in buying property. We have referred her to several friends, who all have had similar experiences.

Two years ago, as a former home owner who was seeking to move to the northern Marin/Southern Sonoma area but who also was nearing the age of retirement, I needed guidance in finding a home that I could afford but that also would provide a welcoming neighborhood community. I chose Kerrin because I was immediately drawn to her charismatic personality, but I also had done my homework and knew that former clients expressed appreciation for her deep knowledge and experience with the northern California real estate market and her loyalty to her clients.
What really sold me on Kerrin, however, was her unique capacity to also serve as a counselor and guide with all of the legal documents I knew that I would need help in understanding. I chose wisely! I did need an agent who would be patient with my panic about making this type of financial investment at 60; I also needed an agent who would remain incredibly professional throughout the many stages of this process, and an agent who would provide timely advice about navigating long and complicated documents, scheduling inspections, removing contingencies, adding warranties, and selecting insurance. Importantly, within 3 months of our meeting, I was living in a home and neighborhood that I continue to love more and more every day.
Thank you, Kerrin!
