Simply put, Kira is the best.

Simply put, Kira is the best. She came highly recommended from a former real estate agent (and friend) that we had worked with previously but was no longer in the business. Even with the bar set high, she far exceeded our expectations. She is extremely knowledgeable of everything real estate related which is a huge peace of mind as you have full confidence in her abilities, suggestions and advice. She works around the clock and is very responsive, and makes herself available around your schedule. She is thorough, detail oriented, honest, 100% trustworthy and a true pleasure to work with. She helped us both sell our existing home and buy a new one, so we had the good fortune of working with her twice. Two of my favorite qualities about Kira are that she follows up on things until they are either resolved or you get all of your questions answered to your satisfaction, and that she is a tremendous advocate for you the customer. She will absolutely look out for your best interest. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Kira was simply amazing!

She continuously went out of her way to ensure I was happy and satisfied with every detail. She was always on the ball and very quick with every task. She gave me her honest input and thoughts that would be best for me, not what would be best for her bottom line. She was extremely knowledgeable, she knew her stuff and wasn't going to settle for anything less than what I wanted. This was my first home and she made it an awesome experience. She was very sweet and personable. I will defiantly be using Kira for all my real estate needs in the future and will recommend her to everyone. - Derrick

Kira stood out!

When I was searching for a realtor to help me sell my parents' house, Kira stood out. I was impressed with her great reviews on Zillow and with her facebook page, which showed she was both up on the latest research & real estate news and was a positive, upbeat person. I couldn't have been luckier with my choice. Kira was warm and friendly and real - I liked her immediately. Throughout the whole process she was always so kind and patient with us while we thought through our decisions; she was never pushy but instead listened to us and adapted her plans to our needs. Most important of all, she was unfailingly positive and cheerful; she was so fun to talk to that I looked forward to our phone conversations. And I cant believe how hard she worked for us!! Any text or email I sent was answered immediately even if it was sent late on a Sunday night or early on a Saturday morning. She was willing to do all sorts of things like help the plumber fix our toilet, vacuum the rug, work with the arborist who came to cut our trees. She has a can-do attitude. Shes also clearly very smart: her knowledge of the market and the whole process of selling a house was impressive. Even more impressive was that when she didnt know something, she had the humility to go to other realtors in her firm to ask for help. No one knows everything, and I try to steer clear of people who pretend they do.

These past 6 months havent been easy for me moving my elderly parents to down to CA to live near me, dealing with my fathers failing health and my mothers stress, while still trying to keep my own daily life together and I feel like Kira was a gift and a blessing to me. She made what could have been a really difficult experience as easy as it could be -- and in fact fun, because she was so fun to interact with. I am so grateful that I found her and I consider her a good friend. She is truly a star an amazing person and a fantastic real estate agent. What more can you ask for: kindness, friendliness, patience, intelligence, industriousness, experience, flexibility, all wrapped up in one person. I recommend her with highest enthusiasm.

We couldnt imagine EVER having a better experience with another agent. Kira always went above and beyond to keep us updated on the market, overall buying/selling processes, and any emerging real estate trends. With her many years of experience, she has established so many contacts in the industry that she was able to give us valuable advice to ensure we had all the information needed to make the best decisions for our family. If she didnt have the answer ¦she immediately went to work to find out and always made us feel like we were her only clients. She even spent a late night (into early morning hours) with us to write up the offer on what would later become our new home!!! Amazing! Kiras smile, laugh, and overall positive personality is infectious and she is now not only our recommended agent, but we consider her a part of our extended family as well! If you want to buy or sell a home in the greater Seattle area look no further; you have found your agent! ~ Cardenas Family


to our home search and this process exceeded our expectations. As first home buyers we were very excited but also at times very overwhelmed. Kira had an amazing ability to calm us and keep us in the positive, giving us assurance that we would find a home that was the perfect fit. Everything about buying a home was new and we had so many questions. Kira was always patient and kind, even when we inundated her with emails and calls (which she always returned promptly). She was always reliable, well organized and focused in every aspect of the process. Kira really cared about our happiness and shared in our excitement. We could not be happier with our new home! We are so thankful to Kira for all of her help, time and energy. We would not have made it through this journey without her!
~ Rachel and Tyson


I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Kira really focuses on the clients needs, which helped streamline the search process. She is also a tireless worker, previewing houses to filter out those that might fit the clients wish list, but prove not to. She is professional, delightful, and incredibly organized. Kira takes house hunting--one of the most stress-filled activities--and makes it fun. ~ Gilmore Family


and I'll use no other agent has long as she is alive. I sold a home in Texas using Kira's recommendation and advice on how to work with, and communicate with, other real estate agents. She knows the business, she knows the in's and out's of selling, negotiating with sellers, other agents, loan agents and relocation services. I have had nothing but great experiences with Kira in every aspect of selling and buying homes, she has managed to get us what we were asking for when we sold our homes and negotiated the lowest price when we bought our homes. She is very professional, smart, funny, articulate and very understanding when working my family and me. If you are looking for an agent that can buy or sell a home inside of 90 days, Kira is the one you want, I totally and highly recommend Kira James, and so do my wife and Kids. It is a pleasure working with- Kira I am looking forward to buying our next home in three years. ~ The Maldonado Family


We were fist time buyers, looking for a small farm. Kira helped us to find the perfect property. Her patience with us was incredible. We asked so many questions as we were new to the process. She handled the seller and agent perfectly. The entire transaction went perfectly smooth. We couldn't ask for anything better than that. She was recommended to me by a friend, and I've recommended her numerous times. We'll be looking for some pasture land in the short future. We'll engage her to give us a hand.
~ Wendy and John


From our very first meeting, where she listened to everything I said I wanted out of the selling & buying process, answered all of my questions, and provided recommendations for how we could meet my goals, I knew I had found someone special to work with. And that level of service never stopped. Kira was always available to me by phone or email, even telling me in advance when she would be away from her computer and when she'd be back. Her positive attitude and commitment to seeing me get the best possible deal was most evident when I found myself dealing with a particularly unpleasant and contentious buyer. She came through again when challenges arose with the title office too. She was never too busy, never made me feel like I was imposing, (even though I know I was) with all my calls/questions/whining, and always made me feel like I was her most important client (which I just like to think I was). Some people are extremely knowledgeable, some people are straight-shooters, and some people offer great customer service. In Kira, you get it all. I cannot recommend Kira enough!

Kira has now helped me buy rental properties as well as my personal home, I would recommend her 110%, she is knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring and always prepared. She made the home buying process fun and easygoing!
~ Nicole Sullivan


She was great to work with--knowledgeable, flexible, and fun. More than anything, she was patient! She was there with us for inspection after inspection after inspection, without blinking an eye. We love our new house! I highly recommend Kira to anyone looking to buy or sell in the north end of Seattle. ~ The Prosser Family


After working with Kira, I finally know how important it is to have a great Realtor. In this market we wouldn't have had any luck without a realtor as on top of listings and aggressive as her. She always has our best interest in mind. She focuses on the greater Seattle area, which gives her a great knowledge of the entire city. Being a Seattle native, I still missed out on nuances she knows about neighborhoods. I'd definitely recommend Kira to anyone that needs a realtor & more importantly, I wouldn't even consider anyone else. Addison and Sarah Linville


We were so lucky to find Kira for our realtor for the purchase of our first home. We had been working off an on with someone before meeting her and the difference between the two was like night and day. All of the sudden we had someone who was dependable, optimistic, available, knowledgeable, and completely trustworthy. It was apparent the first listings she showed us that she only had our best interests in mind and was committed to truly finding us that 'perfect' house within our budget. Even as we were considering houses with issues, Kira would quickly bring us down to reality, picking the houses flaws apart and realistically discussing the issues the house may have--saving us a money pit down the line.

Kira is ALWAYS there for you, I almost felt guilty with how quickly she would respond to a question or get us in to view a listing--pretty sure this woman never takes a day (or an hour off!) which frankly was critical in the market we were working with. An hour or a day can mean losing the chance to place an offer.

After we did find a house we wanted to put an offer on, Kira walked us step by step through the process and made us feel not only comfortable with the time line and process but confident that we had put our best offer forward and that her knowledge and advice would push our offer out in front for the seller. And of course she was right! With Kira's help our offer was accepted over multiple bids on the property and we couldn't have been happier. However, even after the offer had been accepted and the house purchased, Kira remained in close contact throughout all aspects of closing and was really genuine about making sure we were happy with the house. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience and will only be using Kira in the future (and recommending her to anyone else looking to buy or sell). Truly the best realtor out there! - Ben and Carly Galbraith

Kira helped us with two purchases this year.

The first, she spent a lot of time doing research as our criteria was very specific. She worked with us and we were able to find exactly what we wanted. The second, was a very fast transaction that went very smoothly.

We have leveraged Kira for a few other transactions in the past. She is very personable and proactive. We will continue to use her for our real estate needs!

"Kira would be our only call"

Kira came very highly recommended from a close friend. Once I met Kira I knew she was the agent I wanted to work with. Thanks to Kira's knowledge, negotiating, communication and organizational skills coupled with her drive and love for life we made it through a potentially painful process with no doubt of success. Kira is a very professional and driven agent and I would recommend her to anyone looking to make their real estate venture a success! Thanks to Kira's hard work and diligence my daughter and I are in the first home we fell in love with after partnering with her. We are getting settled and could not be happier with the home and the neighborhood. If we ever had to sell and buy again, Kira would be our only call. Thank you Kira. The Tillett Family.
