Case Study- Sarah L. Owner/ Interior Designer at Bay Gold Staging & Design

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chelsea on a couple of different property listings as a stager and have always been super impressed with her work ethic, knowledge, and communication skills. All of the properties we have worked on together went into contract in just 2 days (LITERALLY 2 DAYS) and her clients are always super impressed and happy with the outcome. Chelsea is kind, courteous, and always a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend KB Properties to close friends and family any day!

Adam and Chelsea were very professional and attentive to the sale of my house.  Their experience and recommendations helped me avoid many potential issues – their advice save thousands of dollars.  They worked day and night, and strongly advocated for me in the process.  I am forever grateful for their help and guidance.

Case Study- Claudia S.

Chelsea and Adam are a great team! They helped us to search for a second home in Sonoma. I cannot speak highly enough of Chelsea’s work ethic, communication and client management skills.  We never once felt pushed or misled, rather, well advocated for and represented and she always went the extra mile on our behalf.  Once we purchased a property she helped us to coordinate inspections and really held our hand throughout the entire process, teaching and guiding.  I highly recommend them and would work with them again in the future.

Case Study: Amy Henry

“Chelsea and Adam were absolutely fantastic through the whole process of selling our deceased father’s house. As first-time sellers going through an emotional sale, we needed more support than your average sellers. My sister and I immediately felt like we could trust Chelsea and Adam because of how well they explained all the steps that go into selling a house and their plan for selling ours, and because of their kindness and sensitivity. They are true Sebastopolians and clearly knew the area and market well. They gave us ambitious but realistic estimates of how much they thought the house would sell for, and Chelsea showed us (in person!) many of the comparable properties on the market. The staging was just what we wanted – the stager and landscaper that Chelsea brought in gave us advice that absolutely gave us the most bang for our buck and made the house look beautiful. The photographs, fliers and other advertising were all polished and represented the house well, and their open houses generated multiple offers on more than one weekend. When offers came in and we got stressed, Chelsea and Adam walked us through the process and advised us beautifully, and we wound up accepting an offer well above our asking price. Chelsea went above and beyond helping us clear out the house so that the only hard part was saying goodbye to a home we knew would be loved. At the end of it all, we couldn’t be happier with the process. Chelsea and Adam are both wonderful people, talented agents, and we highly recommend them, as clients and as new friends.”

Case Study: Greg & Alaina Cox

We recently worked with Chelsea and Adam from KB Properties to purchase our 1st home. The entire experience was overwhelmingly positive. 

Chelsea has incredible knowledge of the various cities and neighborhoods within Sonoma County. We enjoyed exploring new neighborhoods and locations with her.  On top of all the stress of purchasing a new home, we had a baby on the way which made for a tight deadline.  Chelsea kept it fun and helped us to find a perfect home for our growing family.  We couldn’t be happier with our home.

Such a great experience, we highly recommend KB Properties!

Case Study: Christopher Melville and Molly Tichenor

“Chelsea really went the extra mile for us, and respected a difficult set of wishes and criteria, in an even more challenging

market.  She is a master multi tasker and always responded promptly and personally.  She is down to earth, savvy and
money smart when it comes to negotiations, and wielded the appropriate social grease when necessary with potential sellers
(even when we forgot to)!  Chelsea could run for office!  It took a lot of patience to take our case, and she ended up
sticking it out.    Chelsea seems to know many in the business, and as one realtor we met said “she’s got her thumb on the
market”.    Chelsea went as far as finding us plumbing contacts and floor people, who could jump right in on our move in
schedule, giving us a few rescues.  She left us with gifts she didn’t have to, among them sending a portion of the
commission to a non-profit of our choice.  As newbies to the process, we never felt put down for having lingo questions, and
could breathe when she could throw in a sense of humour.  This was truly a learning process and we needed the support!
We really felt like we got the best realtor in the county!”
– Christopher Melville and Molly Tichenor

 

Case Study: Shelley

“I could not be happier with KB Properties and my real estate agent Chelsea Wiecek.  I have both listed and bought properties through Chelsea and she is truly knowledgeable and organized.  This was my first time buying a property on my own and Chelsea made the transaction smooth and easy.

Chelsea walked me through every step, answered every question and concern with true professionalism and human understanding.

Chelsea listened to me and was great with returning phone calls, texts and email communication whichever was more efficient for my busy schedule.  I never felt pressured or rushed during the various stages of the home purchase.

My most impressed part about Chelsea is that she left me feeling like I was always her top priority.”

Case Study: Michelle and Zach

Sebastopol Real Estate AgentMichelle and Zach were searching for a home for their family in Sebastopol. They had been looking forover a year.  Chelsea worked very closely with Michelle, guiding and mentoring her through the long process. When the right property came along, Chelsea helped Michelle and Zach secure the home of their dreams.

“Finding the right house, as it turns out, is a very emotionally draining process. If you are lucky you will be mentored and guided through the journey by someone as honest, industrious, experienced and lovely as Chelsea Weicek. If you are blessed with the opportunity to work with Chelsea, you will also be rewarded with THE house. The house you were meant to find all along, the one you were always hoping for, no compromises, no lowered expectations. My family spent over a year house hunting with Chelsea, often with our children in tow, and she never tired of working on our behalf. She also often deftly entertained our kids so we could walk without distraction through potential acquisitions. During the last year my family was hunting for property the real estate market was brutal. The inventory was minimal and it was not unusual for there to be 12 offers on a house, sometimes 100% cash, and always way over asking price.

In this type of financial climate, your only hope of getting the house you want is to align yourself with someone who is willing to fight for you but also has the professional integrity and finesse that Chelsea does. Before we went into escrow on our house, the seller’s agent blatantly told me that she was impressed with Chelsea’s friendly diligence. I learned a lot about the real estate game over the last year and perhaps the greatest lesson of them all is that it really matters who you pick to represent your family.

Agents want to work with other agents that are true to their word and can serve as reliable and intelligent liaisons to help the escrow process go smoothly. Chelsea helped represent our interests with impeccable manners and as a result the buyers and sellers have exchanged some lovely cards in earnest appreciation of one another. Money can really bring out the worst in a lot of people, but Chelsea knows how to get the job done and remain polite in the pursuit. I really appreciated that about her. She also really values her family and that transfers over into genuine joy for others who find the perfect house for their own family to live in together in and build their dreams from. 

I should also highlight that Chelsea and her partner Adam donate 5% of their commission profits to a charity of your choice and as a result I was able to donate to my children’s school. It’s just that sort of commitment to the community that makes KB properties really stand out in what can feel like a cut throat environment. My 7 year old says,” Thank you Chelsea for helping us find such a nice house to live in!” and she’s the toughest customer I’ve ever met!”

Case Study: Jessica and Simon

Sonoma County Real EstateSimon and Jessica were looking for a second home in Sebastopol. They were new to the area and the real estate market in Sonoma County. Chelsea took a proactive approach and took the time to educate them on the market. As soon as they found the home that fit their needs, Chelsea played a pivotal role in ensuring a smooth transaction.

TESTIMONIAL

“My husband and I recently worked with Chelsea on buying a second home in Sebastopol, Ca. Having never been to Sebastopol before, we were completely new to the area and the real estate market there. Chelsea immediately took us under her wing and was very proactive in educating us about the areas. She took time in driving us around the different parts of Sebastopol, pointing out the wineries, shops, restaurants, and neighborhood areas until we were comfortable making a decision on where to look for our new home. I have to say, she “got us” from the first time we met, and really understood what we were looking for. She never wasted our time showing us houses that did not fit our very specific criteria. We felt she was always very upfront and honest with us. For example, when we fell in love with one specific house, she researched it and came back to us and honestly suggested she felt we could find something better.

When we finally put an offer on a house, she had our back all the way through the negotiations. And when kinks came up along the way, she really went up to bat for us. We feel we were very well represented by Chelsea, and have since recommended her services to several of our friends. We vouch for her whole heartedly.”

Case Study: Guy and Kristi

The amount owed on Guy and Kristi’s home loan resembled the value of their property a little too closely, putting the couple in a tight spot. Wishing to avoid a short sale, they turned to Adam and Chelsea, who were able to quickly access KB Properties’ network of professionals to help create valuable land design and staging. Combined with the brokers’ marketing efforts, Adam and Chelsea were able to sell the property in a very short time over the summer. Guy and Kristi did not have to incur any additional debt by selling their home.

TESTIMONIAL

“Chelsea and Adam are so wonderful to work with! Through each stage of the selling process, we collaborated together and met with success…Through their leadership, we were able to envision, create and accomplish our goals! Chelsea and Adam  come to the table with an honest and professional approach to the market, and their teamwork and knowledge give them an edge that is required in todays market. I wholeheartedly recommend them for your next purchase or sale!”
