Kim Cole


I moved from Minnesota to the East Bay 23 years ago. I knew I was home the minute I got here. There was the weather, of course. And the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables. The urban forest with trails galore welcomed me.

I bought my first home in Oakland, a 900 square foot bungalow with a yard for my dog. It’s where my daughter was born, where I fostered kitties, where I organized block parties and garage sales.

I love where I live and I want you to, too.

Helping others find their place here in the East Bay, or helping sellers pass their home on to others, deepens my connection to this amazing part of the world. Real estate, for me, is about service to people and community.

Some of the things I brought with me from Minnesota: my upbeat, easy-going attitude, my straightforward style and my ability to not take myself too seriously. These qualities inform how I work with buyers and sellers. I have developed a process that is transparent, collaborative and personal so my clients can feel confident as they move through their real estate journey.

I have a deep understanding of the East Bay market. I combine analysis of market trends with knowledge of the inventory that can only be gained from boots on the ground. I see the homes that make up the statistics. I talk to the agents that sell those homes. I combine data, personal expertise and relationships to give my clients an edge.

I take a unique approach to every client and property I work with. And I never forget for one minute that any real estate transaction is not about me, but about you. I understand that this is more than a transaction. It is a major moment in your life. It is your moment. It is my job to make it great.

Kim is AWESOME! My husband and I were first time homebuyers attempting to buy a home within an extremely competitive budget range in the crazy-low-interest-rate/COVID market.

Thanks to her, I can call myself a homeowner.
