Clay Kilbarger - Testimonials

Clay will ALWAYS be our realtor.

He is very knowledgeable and honest. We will always refer him .

Gary and Ginger Miner Trustees

There are so many agents to choose from in the market today.

They will all tell you that they can sell your home quickly and for the maximum dollar amount. But anyone who’s been through the home selling or buying process knows that there is much more that is involved. It’s extremely important to hire the right agent - the one who will go to bat for you, be thorough and diligent, and go the extra mile for you to make the process as stress-free as possible. Clay and Rob are that and more. Their wealth of knowledge and experience was an invaluable resource, and they went above and beyond for us. They were always available and never made us feel like anything less than their top priority. Not only are they outstanding agents, but even better people.

Seong and Ye Sook Kim

Outstanding.

Professional. Understanding

Robert and Linda Lewis

We were first time homebuyers and it was so refreshing having someone on our side that knew the process and industry so well.

Ryan and Allison Carroll

Clay is very professional and knowledgeable.

We had a good experience eleven years ago when he was our realtor for buying and selling. AND he got us more money that we had listed for! That was very helpful, needless to say.

Harvey and Nancy Carden

Christina was amazing.

She advocated for us when we did not even know we needed to be advocated for. She was always a text or an email away and she reached out on a regular basis to make sure we were ok throughout the process. I would recommend her to anybody who is looking to buy or sell. This did not stop when escrow closed but has continued as we adjust to our new home. She seemed to know what stressed me the most and was in most cases able to address that to make the journey easier. And on the few occasions when she was not available, her partners stepped in to make sure our needs were being met

Daniel and Marion Dunkerley

Clay gave our family everything you would hope a realtor could.

He is incredibly knowledgable about the market, is honest and is eager to educate his clients. Clay took the time to listen about what we wanted in a new home and was diligent in his efforts to find a place we could call home. In addition, we were amazed when he sold our home in 4 days at full asking price! Can't say enough great things about Clay and his commitment to his clients.

The Averys

Clay is the epitome of a professional.

He is always calm, solution oriented and really goes above and beyond for his clients. His attention to detail and really seeing the transaction details through make him a very special real estate agent. The buyers and sellers that select Clay for their real estates needs are lucky to have him. As an escrow officer I see different types of industry professionals and I can say without a doubt that Clay is by far one of the best.

Ashley Bowman

Clay is undeniably the best real estate agent I have ever used in over 8 house sales in my lifetime.

He is honest, hard working on his client's behalf, trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable, and enjoyable to work with during stressful negotiations. He can be counted upon to represent only you, THE CLIENT, and not himself. The results tell the story. To start with, he provided an expert at no charge to give me staging consultation that I didn't realize I badly needed. We sold the house at list price, and negotiated all issues with a favorable results. His UCLA degree makes him the most intelligent real estate agent you will ever find. Consequently, he knows how to creatively resolve to your benefit all the many complications that arise when you face a sale/purchase as complicated and emotional as that of your home. He is the best. You will never be disappointed.

Clay was a 5 star plus when it came to handling all the details of selling our home.

He consistently looked out for our best interest and gave valuable advice. He communicated every detail to us and his professionalism in handling the unexpected is outstanding. We received what we wanted plus some for our home and the experience working with Clay was very positive. He has our highest recommendation!!

Denise and Al Halstad

We were so impressed with Clay and his team.

Not only did he negotiate to the price point we asked, but he added so much more value with his contacts to help us with window treatments, contractors, and a list of new utility set ups. We will be using Clay as out realtor moving forward on all transactions. Chad and Lisa Morrow

Chad Morrow

Excellent!

Two thumbs up! Because of Clay's expertise in real estate and great marketing strategies, our property sold quick and at the best market value! We are happy to recommend him to family, friends and colleagues.

Mark and Brenda Gow

It was a pleasure working with Clay!

He sold our Irvine home in record time and helped us find our dream family home in our target neighborhood. Clay is a skilled negotiator and communicated openly with us along our house hunting journey. Thank you for the five star service Clay!

Myra Duncan

So very pleased with the way Clay handled our listing.

Communication seems to be his best asset. We were selling California property owned by the Living Trust of our deceased parents. I worked with him from Idaho, thinking it was going to be a challenge, but not at all. From day one, he checked over the property and made available the necessary help/contractors we needed to maintain the property for the best showing. He kept us up to date on a weekly basis, the status of clients looking at the property and rating their interest or offer. When we went into escrow, he made sure I was aware and had all the necessary documentation to expedite the contract. If we had another property for sale, I would ask him to represent us in a heart beat!

Working with Clay and his team was a wonderful experience.

Clay helped us find exactly what we were looking for as we looked to transition into a family home and his accessibility and expertise were instrumental in navigating the sale of our house. From house search to negotiation, staging our house for sale and helping navigate lending and escrow; Clay is always available, knowledgeable and a true trusted advisor. Thank You Clay, we couldn't be happier and you helped to make what can be a stressful process smooth!

Peter Duncan

Great working with him.

He's efficient, fast and personal. He made everything as easy as possible. Thank you!

Nancy and Larry Squires

The most important question anyone can ask in business is, "would you refer them to a friend?

" Without hesitation, I would refer Clay to any friend looking to buy or sell a home along with a glowing recommendation. Clay and I originally met in the community in which we both lived, while at the playground with our children. I recognized him as the guy from the postcards that had been landing on my patio and it was not long before I realized that what he puts front and center in his marketing is actually who he is: a great family first guy. So, how did Clay help me out? He went above and beyond in providing counsel to me when I was first contemplating selling or renting my condo. Even when I decided to rent it out, he continued to provide advice that helped me negotiate a better deal with the property management company and served as a check of sorts with regard to their policies. Why? I wasn't going to sell the condo after all. Because he is a great guy. After a year of renting the condo, it was clear that the right move was to make a move to short sell the condo instead. Of course I turned to Clay. By this point, I considered him not only a trusted confidante, but a friend with an intimate knowledge of the community and the market as a whole. From list to short sale, things could not have gone smoother as he also worked with the property manager and tenants to get the property sold and keep the tenants in the property for the buyers. There are only 5 stars available, but I'd give multiples of that if possible.

Excellent experience!

Clay was great at listening to what my wife and I said we were looking for in a home and presenting us with options that fit our needs. We love the home Clay found for us and would highly recommend him and his company!

Chris Hoang

Chris and Christina both did an excellent job landing us our first home.

We will definitely recommend the CKG Team to our friends & Family. -Cody White

Cody White

Thank you Clay!

Though there were some hiccups along the way, you kept the process very smooth. Selling a house and moving can be a daunting task at times, and you kept us on course with your calm and pleasant demeanor. Your attention to detail and high level of customer service made selling our house easy. To be honest, I was somewhat skeptical from the beginning. I have had both good and bad experiences in real estate and was unsure what to expect this time around. By the time everything was said and done, you had won my wife and I over. I would definitely use your services again, or would recommend you to a friend or family member without hesitation. You are truly a class act.

Jeff Lesser

Clay is a true professional who is very, very good at his job.

Besides being there every step of the way he will realistically tell you what you can expect. But that does not mean he acquiesces, on the contrary, he works to minimize the frivolous offers and conditions so that you do not have to bother with response or counter-offer. Finally, Clay will actually listen to you. Tell him your concerns and he will do his best to alleviate or minimize your worries. I was extremely impressed with him selling my condo and finding a rental as well.
