KC Rentfro

“Three things that separate great realtors from average ones: deep knowledge of the local market, vast expertise in the buying/selling process, and an unwavering commitment to identifying and fulfilling your needs. KC has all three in spades. We casually met KC at an open house in a home his company was renovating. His deep knowledge of the local market was immediately apparent and his enthusiasm and passion for real estate were contagious. That combined with his approachable demeanor left quite an impression on us, making him an obvious choice to represent us when we were ready. Months later we were finally ready to start seriously looking but couldn’t really concur on what we wanted. KC very patiently guided us through dozens of showings over half a year, listening attentively to decipher exactly what both of us needed and wanted in a home. His goal wasn’t to sell us a house, but to give us confidence to know when we found the perfect home for us…and to work his magic to get us a great deal! Throughout the process, he made himself available to us and responded promptly and informatively to our endless questions. He was always cheerful and relaxed and fully transparent, which really helped take that stress out of the whole process. We wanted a house we could put our own stamp on, and KC’s experience and attention to detail were critical in preventing us from getting in over our heads. He knew exactly what to look for and leveraged his vast professional network to inform us on everything from financing and inspections, to contractors and renovation bids. When we finally found the perfect property, KC helped us craft a winning offer we felt very good about (even in a seller’s market!) and guided us through the contingency and closing process quickly and smoothly. He’s even readily volunteered to help us in the months since we bought, advising us on our renovations and connecting us with quality design and construction professionals. We’re very happy with the home we’ve purchased and extremely satisfied with KC’s service. We would recommend him to anyone without hesitation and would definitely seek him out again on our next real estate transaction.”

“KC went above and beyond to make our dreams come true. KC is a friend and we didn’t know what to expect as an agent but we were totally blown away by his expertise, professionalism, and passion for real estate. Throughout our long search in a highly competitive market and an absolute nightmare of a buying process we felt so fortunate to have him as our guide and representative. He was always extremely generous with his time. We always felt like we were his one and only client even though, as his friends, we knew he was busy working just as hard for others. At our first meeting, KC told us everything he thought we should know about Swell Properties, his background in real estate, the San Diego market, and the home buying process and encouraged us ask as many questions as we could think of. He took time up front to walk us through all of the paperwork we should expect when putting in an offer so we’d be confident and prepared when the time came. Throughout the search KC always reassured us not to feel rushed or pressured in any way to put in an offer – all that mattered to him was that we were happy. KC’s expertise was impressive and gave us confidence that we were with the right agent. He made it his priority to have us look at and talk about as many properties as possible to help us figure out exactly what we wanted and where. He knows San Diego real estate like the back of his hand and gave us pros and cons about every neighborhood, even down to the streets. At showings he knew what brought value to a property and what decreased it, how to ballpark estimates for remodeling or repairs, and had an eye for red flags that we wouldn’t have thought of. He always honest and upfront and had the answers to our questions and trustworthy specialists and contractors on speed dial. On top of his expertise, KC is friendly and thoughtful which goes a long way when the inevitable emotional rollercoaster of finding your dream home sets in. After 7 months, with very few homes for sale and prices climbing, we were starting to feel like we would have to settle when our dream home finally came on the market. We had to act quickly but we were prepared and KC made sure that we were fully approved for our loan to give us an advantage and had our down payment ready to go. When we got a counteroffer and word that there were nine other offers on the table, KC gave us sound guidance on how to respond and ensured the seller that we would be able to close in just 14 days. When our offer was accepted the seller told us that his confidence in KC to be able to deliver was a big reason why they chose us. After our offer was accepted, KC had inspectors and contractors in immediately to get our laundry list of questions and concerns answered. We were ready to close when unforeseen and unimaginable problem after problem after problem surfaced. KC spent countless hours and late nights working with us and the seller’s agent and other parties to solve the unsolvable in what turned into over a month ordeal. I can’t imagine that any other agent would have had the dedication, patience, and finesse to navigate our buying process with such poise, professionalism, and success. You should have no doubt in hiring KC Rentfro, he is truly a real estate guru.”

“KC was extremely helpful in guiding my husband and I through the buying process! He was thorough in telling us what all the paperwork meant, but was able to summarize the important parts and offer suggestions on what we should request. He was very patient through the whole process, and we never felt rushed or pressured to give him a fast answer on any of the “big” decisions. He is very professional, responsive, and honest – even when we didn’t always like the truth! We’ve all heard horror stories about realtors who will deceive you or not tell the whole truth just to get the sale. Do yourself a favor and let KC help you find your home!!”

“KC was great in helping us find exactly what we wanted within our price range! We were first time home buyers and he made the home buying process easy. He helped us do a mock offer so we would be prepared when making a real offer. He made sure we had realistic expectations and went through every  step with us start to finish and we never felt pressured to make a purchase”

“Joey absolutely crushed my home buying experience! He was very knowledgable, communicated every nuance of the transaction and made me feel like I was in good hands the whole way through. I was very nervous as this was my first home acquisition, but Joey was calm and had a wonderful understanding  for the market that guided us to a great number and a quick close. I am grateful for Joeys insight and willingness to discuss future investment strategies involving real estate. I have since referred him to family and friends and will continue to do so.

“When I first met KC, I didn’t think it was possible to buy a house within my price range. He helped me every step of the way and even steered me away from houses that did not align with my goals. “We didn’t come here to settle”. He earned my trust by, “Telling it to me straight” and helping me walk away when I fell in love with a money pit. Some realtors might have breezed through a showing, pointing out carpeting and tile. KC was in the crawlspace with a flashlight, checking out the foundation. He taught me what to look for in a house and a neighborhood and gave me countless tips that I would not have thought to consider. He goes beyond “above and beyond” and relentlessly researched title information and city redevelopment plans that may have affected the house I was about to buy. He made sure I was confident of my decision. I completely and confidently trust KC.”

“Joey is extremely polite, knowledgeable, diligent, hard working and responsive to a buyer and seller’s needs, He spent months researching and showing me different properties in Oceanside and Carlsbad until I found the right one for me. He was able to negotiate a great price with a quick escrow through online documents since I lived out of town. I would highly recommend him and plan to use him this year for the sale of another property I own.”
