TESTIMONIALS

our mission is to exceed expectations while providing excellent counsel

CHRISTOPHER LALLI

Developer, Sold in Ross

Radhi and Scott (Ahern + Kalmbach) are truly a professional team and more than just real estate agents. They provide solid marketing analysis, as well and real estate and negotiation expertise. We always felt that we were in good hands and that we had an advantage with their San Fran Francisco and Marin team approach. Radhi and Scott were personally involved at each step of the process, which proved to be invaluable at time of closing. There are certainly many talented and experienced real estate agents in our area, but we felt that our property needed the specialization, personal commitment, state of the art marketing tools, and excellent communication skills that Radhi and Scott brought to this project. And we were never disappointed. We would happily recommend the Ahearn + Kalmbach team to any buyer or seller and we look forward to working with Radhi and Scott again.

Bought and Sold in Mill Valley

Scott was our agent when we purchased our current home, couldn't have been happier with him. He's genuine and kind and was always available to us. He dedicated an entire weekend to our search and got us the house we liked at a fair price. The whole process was smooth, efficient and as enjoyable as house hunting can possibly be. Radhi spearheaded the search for our latest home and we managed to get a house in a great location in Mill Valley. Something we weren't confident would happen! Radhi is smart and doesn't mess around. She is now representing in the sale of our current home and we are very confident that she will help us quickly maximize our return. Having worked with both agents I highly recommend Ahern + Kalmbach.

JULIE DOWLING

Architect, Bought and Sold in Sf/Marin

Scott Kalmbach and Radhi Ahern are highly skilled Real Estate agents. They have been my agents for my San Francisco property, my Muir Beach property and my Nicasio property. As an architect, I look for properties that have a high level of development potential. As a result, these properties can be very complicated. Scott and Radhi understood exactly what I was looking for in every property, and they handled all the details, both small and large, with efficiency, competency, and an excellent attitude, no matter how complicated the process became. I look forward to working with Ahern + Kalbach on future real estate transactions, as they have consistently gained my trust and respect 100%.

GANNON TIDWELL

Developer Postcard Properties, Marin & SF

I am a real estate investor / developer and have worked with Radhi and Scott on the purchase and sale of several properties in San Francisco and Marin over the last 10 years. One of the most important attributes I am looking for in an Agent is integrity and these two possess the utmost integrity. I truly know they have my best interest in mind vs. just a commission. Ahern + Kalmbach are extremely resourceful, whether it concerns remodeling ideas, an innovative marketing concept, or providing access to product not on the MLS. Finally, their deep real estate experience has served me quite well when negotiating me the best price. I highly recommend Radhi & Scott to someone looking to buy or sell their primary residence or investor looking for an investment opportunity.

CHASER

First Time Home Buyer, San Rafael

Molly Halstenson and Radhi Ahern recently helped my wife and I buy our first home and we couldn't be happier with the results! Throughout the entire process they were there every step of the way ensuring what was best for us and going over the fine print details. In the end of the day they were able to get us in a price we were comfortable with and a home we couldn't be more excited to live in. I would recommend them if you're looking for a hands on team that knows what they're doing. In a hectic Bay Area housing market that can be tough to navigate they went above and beyond for us as their clients.

Sold and Purchased in Marin

Radhi and Scott we more absolutely fantastic to work with. They helped us sell and buy at the same time (which is not easy!). We had a bit of a complicated purchase and they held our hand through the entire process, managed all the details, and made sure no money was left behind. As a working Mom with two little ones, they were the perfect fit of organization, calm and intelligence to guide us through this very important and stressful life event. Thank you to Scott and Radhi! We would highly recommend them.

BENJAMIN SHARP

Purchased in Mill Valley

Scott and Radhi are that rare combination in service professionals of incredible compassion and unmatched competence, and I would strongly recommend them to anybody considering buying or selling a home. They helped us sell our last home and patiently supported us as we searched, and ultimately found and purchased our new home, a journey of almost two years. No, they did not pay us to write this! They are capable, kind, and great partners in what can be an emotional decision.

PETER SCHERR

Sold in Mill Valley

With incredible attention to detail and a warm and friendly demeanor, working with Radhi and Scott on the sale of our Mill Valley home was a well thought-out and managed processed. Radhi and Scott are an amazing team, with a fabulous dynamic that made our experience with them terrific. They thoughtfully managed every aspect of our sale, from guiding our pre-marketing improvements and marketing to the sales process and closing. These guys are A+!

ERIC ZENER

Sold & Bought in Mill Valley

I have known, and worked with the Ahern and Kalmbach team for years. They have been a personal and professional pleasure to work with. Fast, thorough and honest advice and info on questions and help. Their ability to see great investment projects, or turnkey opportunities helped my family make confident decisions on our future. Their patience, creativity and experience made the process of buying and selling a smooth and stress free experience!

PETER J.

Sold & Bought in Mill Valley

Scott and Radhi and their team did an amazing job in helping us sell our home. They took the time to give us detailed advice on how to fix up our home to make it shine! We followed their advice on everything from paint colors to carpeting to light fixtures to staging. We sold our home quickly and for more than we had originally thought. In short, we were extremely happy in working with Scott and Radhi.

RAFFI BAROUTJIAN & LUCINE ABDALIAN

Sold in San Francisco

Radhi and Scott delivered a hugely positive transaction. They knew the types of buyers who would value our property and developed a strategy to find them. Their business judgment was spot-on right from the start, in anticipating potential issues and then in negotiating a contract that exceeded our expectations. We were extremely pleased with how they executed the transaction. Huge thanks.

CHRIS P.

First Time Home Buyer

Radhi was great as an agent for a first time buyer like me. She walked me through the entire process and made it easy, even allowing us to handle the process while on vacation in Europe for two weeks. Even post-purchase, she has made sure everything was followed through properly and we are happy. We'll certainly consider Radhi for any future purchases in SF or the wine country.

HOUMAN CHITSAZ

Sold in Mill Valley

Radhi and Scott are professional diligent and savvy negotiators. They also understand the market and know what it takes to get the deal done. After having a difficult time selling our home, we hired them and got our house sold before it even hit the open market at a price over our asking price. I would recommend them to anyone who is serious about selling their home.

EDWARDS

Sold in Mill Valley

Top tier service and professionalism throughout entire process. The team at Ahern-Kalmbach are experts at marketing and knowing how best to position a property to garner maximum value. It was a true pleasure to work with Scott and his team and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property in northern California!

PETER & ROBERTA MARSHALL

Sold in Mill Valley

Radhi and Scott have helped us on two purchases and one sale transaction. Each transaction went extremely well, primarily as a result of their professionalism and acute insight into a rapidly changing market. We have repeatedly recommended Radhi and Scott to our friends and associates and will continue to do so.

TIM CARR & KAREN BRADSHAW

Sold & Purchased Several Homes in Marin/SF

We have sold or purchased 3 homes with Scott and Radhi. They are great partners. They understand our needs, make efficient use of our time and are extra helpful with providing resources to help us with our various projects.

JAMES LUPO

Bought & Sold in Sonoma

The energy, creativity, market savvy, and personal service from the entire Ahern + Kalmbach team was amazing. We presented them with a difficult project to sell and they nailed it. We cannot sing their praises loudly enough!

PATRICK & ERIN FLYNN

Bought/Sold in SF and Bought in Marin

Radhi and team are awesome. They have deep knowledge of SF and Marin real estate. They also really take the time to get to know you and understand your wants/needs. We love working with them. You will also.

LOGAN PIKE

First Time Home Buyer, San Francisco

Molly and team helped make a very difficult first home purchase something that I could manage. I would not have been able to do it without them. I would highly recommend working with this team.

JP & LAURA

We could not be happier with our experience with Tracey. We were lucky enough to work with her twice in just over a year and she was extremely valuable in both buying and selling a house. She has a high understanding of the market, is extremely responsive to all of our needs, she is thoughtful, detailed, tough and truly a delight to work with. I would highly recommend working with her for anyone looking to buy or sell in SF or Marin. She will not only find you the right home or the right buyer, but you will really enjoy working with her.

FLEUR & WILL

My husband and I feel incredibly fortunate to have had Tracey as our realtor. She was always really on it, reliable and communicative and worked tirelessly to find us our home. When we found our house and she saw how much we wanted it, Tracey acted with inspiring confidence to get it for us. Thanks to her tenacity and determination, we had our dream home within 48 hours of our first visit and we have Tracey to thank for that. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

GISELLE & KARTICK

Working with Tracey has been an absolute pleasure! Her guidance, honesty, and acumen have been invaluable as we narrowed down our home search in the Bay Area. She has extensive expertise in both the Marin and San Francisco markets and excellent relationships with other brokers. When we would enter homes and mention that Tracey was our broker, it would always elicit a smile and respect from her colleagues. This was invaluable as we sought to understand which home would be the best fit for our young family, and the strategy we should use for putting in an offer. She was successful in getting us our home of choice at a fair price in the very competitive San Francisco market, which says a lot! Tracey has also been a lot of fun to work with – she is energetic, genuine and a straight-shooter, which is rare. We feel fortunate to have worked with her and now consider her a friend.

LEXIE C.

Bought and Sold in Mill Valley & Belvedere

We have worked with Ahern + Kalmbach on several transactions - both as buyers and as sellers, and we couldn’t be more satisfied! For our most recent sale, in Belvedere, Radhi and Scott again went above and beyond to ensure we got the best price for our home. They thoroughly evaluated the market, made recommendations on easy upgrades to make the property more appealing to today’s buyers, and helped manage the entire process for us. Their expertise, attention to detail and consistent follow-through helped us sell our home quickly and for a price we were thrilled with! You are in the best of hands with Radhi and Scott!

ALICE LARKIN CAHAN

Sold in SF & Bought in Kentfield

Scott and Radhi are at the top of their game. I have both bought and sold a properties with this duo and both transactions were both fun and smooth. Scott’s impeccable taste and eye is unparalleled and Radhi’s incredible business sense makes them the perfect combination. I ended up with my dream house in Marin and had enough $$ because of their ability to get me the best possible price for my sale in SF.

TARJA PARSSINEN

Sold in Mill Valley

My husband and I just used Radhi, Scott, and their amazing team to sell our home just north of San Francisco. The results they achieved in preparing our home for viewing were incredible (and done in a very short amount of time). Friends, neighbors and interested buyers raved about the home’s transformation! Not only did they sell our home immediately, and for well above asking, they were a pleasure to work with. We knew we were in the very best hands and would recommend them to anyone!

AMANDA NORTH

I just purchased a multi-unit residence in a wonderful neighborhood in San Francisco with the help of Molly and Radhi. They were there every step of the way through an extremely competitive situation and very quick close. I am delighted with the services they provided and the support they gave me. I feel like I've made two new friends in the process. I can't recommend the team highly enough.

CAITLIN SACHDEV

Bought and Sold in SF

We cannot speak highly enough about Radhi and Scott. The Bay Area is an incredibly competitive and complex real estate market. Radhi and Scott are experts with a white glove touch. They are honest, transparent and work hard for their clients - on the buy and the sell side. One of the things we most appreciated about them was their ability to find the “rare find” and have an understanding of the “off-market”.

ZOE L PINKSA

Bought and Sold in Mill Valley

We recently completed two transactions with Ahern + Kalmbach and couldn’t have been more impressed. Radhi and Scott are professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Their market expertise in Marin and San Francisco, relationships with other top agents, and knowledge of existing market conditions allowed us to get top dollar for our property. They went above and beyond both in helping prepare our home for sale, as well as helping us analyze the home we were purchasing.

KELLY HAEGGLUND

Architect/Developer Mill Valley

I have worked with this amazing team on several home purchases and listings. Scott and Radhi helped me with the purchase of a property in Mill Valley that a business partner and I intended to remodel. Ahern+Kalmbach then brought in multiple offers on our finished product...and all were well over our asking price. We could not have been happier with their guidance and expert advice throughout the process. Scott also assisted me with the purchase of a property that was inconveniently located 35 minutes from Marin. Unfortunately that property went to probate court as the seller's heirs argued amongst themselves. Scott accompanied me to court hearings and helped me understand the process and my options. Ultimately I chose to walk away from that listing -- but happily we found an even better property and Scott again took me through the purchase with sound advice. The deal closed quickly and…

LILIANNA RICHEY

Sold in SF and Bought in Mill Valley

We can’t recommend this amazing team more. They saved us on more than one occasion! We had a tricky sell in SF and had a realtor who kept lowering the price and still without any interest. Within a week to switching to Ahern + Kalmbach, we had offers ABOVE our initial asking price. They tackled this very tricky sale so smoothly and we felt at ease with them taking over. A few years later we sold a place in Mill Valley and they were once again fantastic! When we moved to SoCal, we were having issues with buying a home and had questions. Even though we had a realtor down there, we once again turned to our trusted sources at Ahern + Kalmbach to ask for advice. They are professional, totally connected and have seen everything.

Sold in Mill Valley & Bought in Kentfield

We worked with Scott and Radhi on the sell of our house in Mill Valley and the purchase of our new home in Kentfield last year. Our experience with them was nothing short of outstanding. First, I have never received better customer service anywhere. I know they are busy with many clients, but they make you feel like you are the only person they are working with. They respond so quickly to any question or update. I cannot remember waiting on them for anything during the entire process. They are also so knowledgeable and experienced in the real estate market. They know what they are doing and are great at strategizing. I always felt like I was in good hands and never had to worry about them leading us in the wrong direction.

Sold in SF

In short, if you're kicking off a real estate transaction in SF or Marin County, there is no one better than Radhi, Scott & Molly. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the market, excellent negotiators and organized. They gave me excellent coaching on the prep needed to sell my condo and their estimate on price couldn't have been more spot on. High praise for Ahern + Kalmbach!

ROB ANDERSEN

Sold in Mill Valley & Bought in SF

Scott & Radhi and their team have been excellent to work with. They have represented us on two transactions and their professionalism, follow through and savvy helped us make two great deals. Our most recent home purchase search was challenging and filled with specific needs and demands. it took months and a lot of ground work, but they stuck with us and we ended up in a great place. Highly recommended!
