Utilizing the latest technology and ultra high-end collateral, Kristen can help formulate a marketing plan tailored specifically to your property and lifestyle. She achieves results with patience, creativity, and she's committed to helping you realize your goals.


Kristen feels it is extremely necessary to give back to the community and she contributes a portion of every commission to help fund the homeless, and local youth, arts, and education.

If you want a real estate agent that "makes things happen" you've come to the right one. Not only is Kristen Thompson knowledgeable about her market, a commiserate professional and a great person to boot, she is also willing to literally go the extra mile for you. Kristen shows up, gets things done and is exceptionally responsive. She will keep you on task with her calendar and deadlines, but I assure you it is because she has YOU and YOUR INTERESTS at the top of her priority list. I am so happy we chose Kristen to sell our property, and you will not be disappointed.

great experience with Kristen she guided me on what to do to get the most money out of my house and on the second to the last day before the open house had to change the color of some kitchen cabinets she showed up with the paint and brushes and helped me paint the cabinets to get it done on time so helpful. Would call her instantly if I had another house to sell.

Kristen has been an incredible partner in the homebuying process for us. She showed unwavering patience and understanding as my husband and I sought out our new home under very challenging and stringent circumstances. She explained things clearly to us. She was always available whenever we had questions or needed guidance. She treated us with utter respect. She really became an outstanding support to us from start to finish. Thanks to Kristen, we closed the deal on our very first home and we are so happy with the result!

Kristen is one of the most competent realtors I have worked with. I have made an offer on one property through her and investigated several other properties. She supported me with her vast experience in the real estate market in Oakland and guided me toward achieving my goals. Kristen is very honest and provided unfiltered information about the properties we looked into. She has a vast network of resources she used to find me loans, experts, inspectors, and as much information as I needed about making a successful offer. She understood my priorities and patiently helped me achieve them. It is unusual to find a person with Kristen's qualifications and I would work with her again anytime. Thank you Kristen!!!

Kristen was absolutely amazing! She helped us with every step of our first home purchase. She was very responsive with all the emails, even answering our questions late at night. She was extremely professional, patient, supportive, knowledgable and helpful. We closed the deal on our first home thanks to her. I dare to say she is the best agent out there!

– Eda Santi

Kristen is amazing! She was there for every house that we viewed. She showed us good and bad things about each place. Things we would never know to check for. She quickly answered any email questions we had and kept our whole experience positive. And then she helped us close on our dream home!

– Dax Santi

Kristen has both helped me sell, and just recently buy a new home. I am a repeat customer which theoretically says it all. But it bears repeating--Kristen is a class act, a great realtor and if I ever needed another agent, I'd ask her to represent me a third time. I highly recommend Ms. Thompson.

I wish Kristen could help buy and sell all of my homes! Too bad, she only works in Northern California. My husband and I hired Kristen as our realtor to sell our Emeryville condo. We live in Southern California and could not be there to oversee a lot of things. Kristen made the process smooth and painless. She was great with advertising our condo on all the online sites to give it the best exposure. She helped arrange for staging, and kept us updated constantly. Most importantly, she sold our place at a price that was beyond our highest expectation! Kristen, thank you so much! You are a wonderful realtor. You are genuine, considerate and have poise during those intense moments of selling real estate. Im so glad you are our realtor.

Kristen is a wonderful agent that helped me and my wife through our first home purchase. She was extremely professional, patient with all of our questions, and was very responsive (even late at night). She also successfully fought for us during negotiations to get a lower price. I will recommend her to all of my friends when they look to purchase a home and plan to call upon her again when we sell our new home.

– Thom

We bought 2 houses with Kristen, and she was excellent to work with. She was great at putting down just the right offer at the right time. She is our personal realtor forever!

– Jana Sotek

Kristen is a skilled, dedicated, and patient agent whom I would recommend to anyone. Due to various issues out of our control, my home purchase was not an easy one. There was more than one instance where the direction of the purchase took a sideways turn and almost seemed as if it would not happen. If she hadn't been my agent this might have been the case! Kristen always answered all of my questions and worked diligently and conscientiously to close the deal.

Kristen Thompson is a fantastic agent. She helped us buy a home in 2004, and we went back to her to sell because she is such a respectful, responsive and knowledgeable agent. She has always gone above and beyond to make sure that we are happy and getting the most for our money. The most important thing about Kristen is that she is honest and a sharp negotiator. I would use her again and again!

– Oriana

Kristen was amazingly helpful through all parts of my first home purchase. She found a great place for me to see and helped me navigate through the entire process. Professional the entire way, I highly recommend Kristen if you're looking for a real estate agent.

It is very easy to assign top marks for Ms. Thompson. I could not have sold my space without her. Kristen provided guidance that was always spot on and yet I never felt pressured. Instead, I felt that I was well informed by my agent who made it a point, herself, to know about the market. She is adept with technology to make the often tedious paperwork process as seamless as possible. Kristen is an ace negotiator, but also a very straight shooter. Kristen did a great job for me, and I intend to use her the next time I buy or sell a home.

– Tina

We purchased in the Summer of 2012 and it could not have been a more seamless, positive transaction. I would recommend Kristen wholeheartedly as she is diligent, professional, knowledgeable, and patient during the entire process

– Frank Flores

Kristen was a huge help in getting us into the house we wanted. When we finally identified our dream house, she told us exactly what was needed to get it. We couldn't be happier with where we are now, and we owe a huge thank you to Kristen for her amazing work!

– Mike Cancel

Kristen is an outstanding agent with a strong work ethic. She has broad knowledge of Bay Area real estate in both San Francisco and the East Bay. Her client centric focus consistently delivers the highest level of service to both buyers and sellers.
