Kathy and Chuck helped us to sell our home and negotiate top dollar. Kathy works tirelessly and responds quickly to every text, email and phone call. Communication is top notch. We had a beautiful property to sell, and Kathy and Chuck guided us on the items to wisely invest for even better "curb appeal." Kathy has a dedicated team of people that she scheduled for us to make sure that the house was Open House ready and this included everyone from painters, handymen, cleaners, landscapers, and photographers. Chuck is very knowledgeable in construction needs and was helpful to explain everything to the various people who came to assist. Lastly, Kathy showed her true strength as a great negotiator as she led us through the offers that were received. We will definitely contact Kathy and Chuck if we have any property to sell in the future.  Cindy Fong

I am a real-estate broker in San Jose and needed to sell my father's 25 year rental property in Sacramento. I briefly looked at comps on the computer and came up with 180-200K. I found Kathy from a flyer sent to my father's home in San Jose. I interviewed her at the Sacramento property where she gave her opinions on what we should repair and what could be left as is (it was a rental for 25 years so refurbishment was necessary. We then looked at a couple of similar sale pending homes of similar size and neighbor. Kathy suggested a listing price of 230K. She explained the she helped coordinate refurbishment of many homes and she had a list of reasonable contractors that did the work. The home sold in less than a week with several offers, all over asking which was expected in the current market. She negotiated that the buyers pay 5K over the appraised value which in effect gave us the highest price that could be had in the area. Kathy and her escrow team followed the closing schedule and answered my questions before I asked them. The transaction had a couple of minor issues come up during the process, not unexpected. These were handled and the property closed on time. As a broker, she is the type of agent I love to deal with. Professional, knowledgeable and hard working. This is a big advantage with buyers and seller. I recommend Kathy with 5 Yelp stars.  Scott Rogers 

Kathy has been honest and responsive at the outset. Our interview with her took a lot longer than expected and she was very attentive and answered all our concerns and keep our minds at ease through the whole process. She has a very strong network that it took a stunning short amount of time to sell our house and at a price that met our expectations.  We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a nice, honest and reliable realtor.  Gil and Norberta Tayag

It is my pleasure to write these comments concerning Kathy Cao. I have purchased and sold property for over 30 years. Therefore, I've used the services of many many agents. Kathy Cao is the best of them all. I found her to be the most professional and knowledgeable. Hopefully, she will be available if I decide to purchase any additional properties in the future. It was a pleasure working with her.

Kathy and Chuck were exactly the sympathetic experts that we needed to sell our home. They sell real estate for a living but this was only our second sale ever and the first in 26 years, so we needed a lot of hand-holding! Kathy guided us through the entire process very skillfully, educating us along the way. Chuck was a non-stop energy source when we needed help the most, especially getting things into storage. Kathy also deployed a team of great handymen and others to put our home in top shape for showing. Want more? O.K. We listed April 7 and sold April 9 to exactly the right buyer. We recommend Kathy and Chuck highly. Robert Buckley

Kathy Thu Duyen Cao and Chuck Maples are truly a great husband and wife team.  As realtors, they are professional, conscientious and work hard to represent you whether to sell your home or assist you in purchasing a home.  They in fact sold five homes and help me purchase two in the last eight months.  I strongly recommend that you consider calling them and allow them to represent you in selling or buying a home.  A decision that you will not regret.   Kim Ryan 

Chuck and Kathy helped us tremendously in selling our mom's home. They guided us through the selling process "hassle-free" - how to get the home ready for the market, how to complete the mounds of paperwork, and how to deal with other issues that seemed overwhelming at times. Their respect to the seller's needs and their intelligence of the real estate business is such that we would definitely recommend them to any who want a great real estate rep.  Mary Fong

I want to thank and commend Kathy and Chuck for all the effort and hard work put into listing and selling my home. As an absentee landlord, they made this a very smooth transaction for me with no stress. They helped me find the right contractors to prep the house for sale and even supervised and inspected the work done. This saved me a lot of time and travel which I am grateful. We had one open house and received an offer immediately. Kathy & Chuck are very knowledgeable in their field and the current RE Market. Great job team and I highly recommend them.  Mel Tanyag

Had been receiving selling flyers for our area for a few years and always held onto them in case we ever sold from Kathy and Chuck. The sold sheets kept us informed on what was happening in the area. When the time came to sell, we interviewed a couple of agents but Kathy was knowledgeable on the area pricing and felt she would be the best for us. She came up with a listing price that we had in our minds and went to work for us. Our house was sold the first weekend of the open house for full price. A couple of issues arose on inspection but Kathy was able to negotiate a fair price for a credit. When we arrived to sign the papers at the title company she was there to say Thank You for the business and wished us well. Can't say enough good things. Everything we asked she followed up on and got back to us promptly. A wonderful team that is worth having on your side. Recommend highly!"  Yolanda and Jack Atkinson

Thank you and Chuck for your help throughout the process. It was a big help with you and Chuck managing the property remodel, etc. in my absence. You have been an excellent realtor for me. Always kept me updated and worked in my interest. I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell their property in your area. Narayan Nair

Kathy, you are the most trustful/responsible agent I’ve been work with. In the future, I will refer all my friends to work with you as a real estate agent. Thank you so much. Jackey Cheng

Proactive, real-estate business acumen, lighting quick responses to my many questions and concerns are how I would characterize my past experience with Kathy Cao of the Re/Max Gold real-estate agency. Let me explain why.  Kathy, who I must admitted I contacted after another agent I’d contacted failed to follow through on a promise they made, successfully marketed and sold a rental property that my mother had owned for a number of years.  The turnaround from initial contact to closing was much quicker than expected; plus the bottom line number exceeded both of ours, mine and Kathy expectations Kathy and her husband Chuck did all of the heavy lifting, some of which was expected, but in addition to the expected they also did the unexpected. For example, there is a tree in the back yard that had some limbs rubbing against the neighbor house.  After learning of this Chuck told the neighbor he would be back later in the day to cut off the offending limbs. In closing I should also note that throughout the whole process, from the first handshake to the last pen stroke on the closing documents both Kathy and Chuck provided wise and sound counsel.   For this reason, the reasons stated above and for reasons not mentioned I will be contacting Kathy when I next need a real-estate agent.
