This will sound like puffery but it is not. Bethe is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. (I am 77 years old). Her professionalism is far beyond anything I have ever experienced. She not only knows the market, she OWNS the market. I needed some fix up before the sale; she handled everything. Fabulously. She negotiated the highest price ever achieved for my unit in my building, by a wide margin. Communication with me always immediate, clear, and to the point. Fully responsive. -Michael (via
Bethe is the real estate version of you favorite comfortable shirt. She made the entire process so smooth and seamless, it just felt natural. She is so knowledgeable and calming, the professionalism just infects everyone involved in the transaction. She went above and beyond so many times (from scheduling all staging, cleaning to showings) I lost track. When it comes to a realtor who is going to represent what your wants and desires are, Bethe should be the only Realtor you contact. -cj437 (via Zillow)
Hi everyone, as my last posting to this group I wanted to give a shoutout to Bethe Vanier from Kim Cole Real Estate, who may be the best realtor ever. I think she reads minds - or at least mine. We were not looking forward to moving out, while we tatted our place up for resale. We didn’t want the hassle or the expense. We didn’t say that, but she must have read our minds, which is when she mentioned selling our condo off market. It worked really well for us. Then at the other end helping us make a smooth and very quick transition to our retirement in Sacramento. Bethe is very responsive and on top of everything, personable and easy to work with. We unreservedly recommend her. -Regan (via Facebook - The Uptown Place Oakland)
Hi everyone, As my time in this lovely community has come to an end, I wanted to take a moment to jump onto the love train for Bethe Vanier of Kim Cole Real Estate. Bethe and her team had my unit painted and beautifully staged within 5 days of my tenants moving out and made the entire process simple and seamless (I wasn’t even in town). She is the only person that should be allowed to sell in the building! She’s passionate, personable, and has a beautiful spirit. Her love for the building and the residents in it is unmatched and I’ll miss you all terribly! If you ever make the decision to leave this wonderful community, definitely choose Bethe Vanier! You WILL NOT be disappointed. -Akeem (via Facebook - The Uptown Place Oakland)
Bethe is a very thorough and intelligent realtor. During the entire process of listing our home, showing our home and reviewing offers, Bethe demonstrated professionalism and guided us through the process with articulate market insights. During the escrow process we encountered some rather unique obstacles with the potential buyers. Bethe was able to use her phenomenal negotiation skills to help us close the sale on time. Bethe was also able to deliver us a closed sale price above our expectations. -Steve & Shelly Grimm
Bethe is AWESOME! We could not be happier with our experience with Bethe as our listing agent. She is extremely knowledgeable, very professional, and made sure our best interests were taken care of throughout the entire process. Bethe communicated with us from start to finish, keeping us apprised of updates and answering any questions we had. I would recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home! -MTB (via ratemyagent)
