What my clients have to say
I have sold several houses over the years but Kevin Bourland made this last sale by far the easiest. His advice was superb. He is a smart and experienced real estate agent, very honest and thorough in his education of me on the realities of the current real estate market. He was spot on with the right price range to sell my house and it was sold in one week. As a satisfied seller I give him an excellent rating.

Kevin helped us navigate an extended sales process, always maintaining a positive, even-keeled attitude. He did a fantastic job marketing our property and was flexible, knowledgeable and helpful throughout. We would work with Kevin again in a heartbeat.

Kevin’s knowledge and professionalism know no bounds. As recent transplants from NY, we were extremely grateful to have such a thoughtful, strategic and knowledgeable partner in our quest to purchase a house in the LA area. We could not be more delighted with our new home and we are happy to heartily recommend Kevin to anyone looking to purchase or sell a residence.

It was great working with Kevin! He not only helped us navigate through the inevitable twists and turns of escrow with ease, but he used his resources to get our house ready to show. He was always there for us, always available for whatever we needed- guidance, support, or just answers to our endless questions! We were fortunate to have multiple offers and he spent many hours deciding the best and most respectful way to respond to each one of them. A true professional-thank you Kevin!

Very rarely does the selling of a home and the acquisition of a new onenot signal a significant dynamic shift in one’s life. And as such, the process never fails to be daunting, stressful, and all consuming.
It certainly was for us. But standing at the helm as he did, Kevin Bourland never allowed the immensity of the undertaking to overwhelm us. While he never pretended that what we were doing was not monumental –never diminished our anxieties or apprehensions— neither did he allow our fears to fill the windshield and become the only thing visible.
He was a steady captain throughout –from the first tentative meeting through to the hand-off of keys— and made us feel as if our journey was, in fact, a part of his own.And we are immensely grateful to him.

Kevin’s attention to detail, consistent follow through and professionalism made such a difference throughout the listing and successful sale of our home. It is a pleasure to work with someone whose creativity, positivity and friendly attitude kept us feeling good about the process. We strongly recommend Kevin to our friends considering a real estate transaction.
Keith and Tracy T. La Canada Flintridge
“We came to Kevin with an idea that involved a complicated two sided transaction where timing and quality of execution were of paramount importance. He helped us to evaluate the quality of competing offers, while keeping the entire transaction on schedule against a ticking clock. His expertise with regard to managing the 2 escrows, and especially his sensitivity to the historic nature of both properties helped to uncomplicate a very complex transaction. Thanks to Kevin, we are living in the home of our dreams.”

We needed to find that perfect house and we needed to find it fast. Kevin started working for us immediately. He showed us a house that we fell in love with. It wasn’t even on the market, but he pulled a few strings to get us inside. As it turns out, there was another accepted offer before us. The clock was ticking down, moving trucks were booked and we didn’t have a place to live. Because of Kevin’s consistent actions, he won us the house. We could not be happier. It sounds a bit corny, but without Kevin Bourland, it would never have happened.

“Kevin Bourland represented us in the sale of our home of 20 years. He guided us through the process of prepping the house for sale and the sale itself with excellent advice and support. We had multiple offers over the asking price and sold the house almost immediately. He made what seemed like an overwhelming process quite manageable.”

Throughout the entire process of my house listing and sale I have sung Kevin’s praises to everyone and anyone who would listen to me. He has made what can often be a stressful and tedious process a very positive experience. I think that perhaps it is his commitment to clear and timely communication that places Kevin above the rest; he responded to every question and request quickly and with clarity. I never felt in the dark. Even post closing and as I prepare to move, he remains a resource. Kevin’s knowledge of the market, and excellent marketing brought qualified buyers to the table. His counsel during negotiations was invaluable. I can’t thank him enough.

“We sold our home in South Pasadena with Kevin Bourland as our realtor and we could not have been happier with how Kevin guided us through the process, or with the result. Kevin is a professional who understands the market and was exactly what we needed as together we engaged all the variables — when to sell, how to stage, how to price — and went through all the hurdles — emotional, financial, logistical — that went into selling our beloved home.
First, Kevin’s market analysis was thorough and his recommendation for the price point proved to be spot on. He gave us a price range for the sale and discussed what investments we would need to make in order to reach the maximum price. He then helped us find the contractors we needed to do the landscaping, painting and electrical work, and advised us through the staging of the house, making sure the place “popped”. He hired his own photographer and put together an outstanding brochure and website which drew an enormous number of realtors on the caravan and then realtors and buyers to the open house.
We had four offers within days of the open house and then he guided us through the choosing of the offer, the counter offer and the intricacies of escrow and closing the sale.
Every step of the way everything went smoothly and Kevin was always attentive to our wishes and good humored and supportive. Kevin never pressured us. All the decisions were ours. But his recommendations and hard work made all those decisions easy to make. We couldn’t have been happier with the realtor we chose.
I highly recommend Kevin if you are listing your home.”
