    My Client Testimonials

    Mara has a proven track record for excellence in transactions. She is client-focused, always thinking ahead, and highly responsive. Her negotiation skills are exemplary and ultimately resulted in an incredible sales price and terms that I hadnt even considered. I would highly recommend Mara to anyone looking for a professional, highly knowledgeable, kind, personable broker in the Northbay. Megan Denton
    Mara was a wonderful agent to work with. My Aunt, who owned the property, became very ill and Mara did not miss a beat with support and understanding. We are forever grateful for her and the amazing service she provided to us! Virginia Lundin Bates
    Mara was completely an expert on showing our home and helped us to highlight the beauty and functionality of the house. She patiently guided us through the process of putting our home on the market, acceptance of an offer and all the paperwork surrounding the sale of a property. We are so glad that we had Mara and her team working with us." Evangeline and Art Charette, Sonoma
    Mara is a wonderful person as well as an immensely qualified and detailed real estate agent. She is a community leader, which is essential to me when I have a choice in service providers. Mara is a gem, pure and simple. Garland Lamb, Sonoma
    Mara showed us homes from Sonoma to San Rafael, and points in between. She really went above and beyond for several months to assist us. She was always available, weekday or weekend. A consummate professional. Mara was relentless in helping us find our house. She even took time to make sure we were doing well during the fires in Sonoma. She cares about her work and especially cares about her clients and meeting their needs. She goes above and beyond in the search for houses and well-being of her clients. Richard & Joy Westermeyer
    Mara is a very fair, thorough, and knowledgeable broker. She is hard-working and does what she says she will do. Highly recommended! Mike Boss
    Mara Kahn, you made buying our new home a wonderful, great experience. You educated us and you were very patient. Thank you so much for your knowledge and expertise- you are a joy! We will recommend you highly to anyone looking for an agent. Don and Cris Denton, Petaluma
    Mara is a no-nonsense realtor that works tirelessly to make sure you find the perfect house and then works just as hard to make sure your escrow closes smoothly. Robert, Sonoma
    Mara is very personable and easy to talk to. Very open to what we have to say and addressed our concerns. She made suggestions on how we can improve our showing to accelerate the sale of the house and the house sold within five days from going into the market! Mara made sure that all potential offers were considered but with her experience also recommended the best deal for us. Mara explained all the questions that we had into detail, this is our first time selling a house and we had a lot of questions. The advertising flyers were beautiful, though the house sold quickly, we ended up not needing them all. Mara Kahn made sure all our appointments were kept and she and/or an associate of hers were present. We highly recommend Mara Kahn to any of our friends and family. We would definitely call Mara Kahn again if we are in need of a realtor in Sonoma County. Walt & Vivien Moniz
    Mara is the best agent I have ever worked with. She really listened to our needs and found the perfect home for our family. Thank you for everything, Mara! You really went above and beyond my expectations. Keep up the great work!" Graham Schlientz, Petaluma
    Mara always had us in mind. She went to bat for us when the stakes were high and put our needs first. We are extremely appreciative of her hard work and dedication. We have worked with a number of agents in the last three years because of the two big moves we have made. Of the 4 we have worked with, Mara was our favorite! She has a genuine interest in her clients and always seeks to provide the best level of service possible. We can't recommend her enough. Megan Schlientz
    Mara did devotional work for selling the house, fixing it and closing the contract. Really really appreciate it. Nakyoung Kim
    I knew Mara from the local synagogue. We interviewed another broker but really appreciated her straight forward honest approach. Mara was terrific, patient and knowledgable. This was not an easy sale and she was so positive and calm during difficult negotiations. Natalie Fay, Moraga California
