"We were lucky enough to be connected to Jen"
We were lucky enough to be connected to Jen in 2014, when we started our slow process of relocating to the Bay Area from Canada. Jen showed us around and helped us get the lay of the land. It took us two years to purchase a home, touring countless properties with Jen. We tried houses all over the East Bay, and she was always patient and helpful. She was more than happy to accompany us to open houses, compare comps, and consider all the different possibilities of the many East Bay options. When it came down to making the offer, Jen was incredibly helpful. Being from Canada, Jen walked us through the complicated process, and was a fierce advocate for us, ensuring the deal went perfectly. I cannot recommend Jen highly enough. The bonus? She’s also a lot of fun to hang out with!

"We met Jen at an open house in Danville"
My wife and I were seriously considering selling our home in San Ramon when we met Jen at an open house in Danville. It was clear from the outset that Jen knew what she was doing - as we loved the open house she had, and she walked us through the changes she recommended the sellers make for getting that house on the market. I left the open house thinking "I want to work with her to sell our home." Fast forward to Jen helping us to get our home ready - great recommendations on prepping our home for sale, and at the end of the day we executed an off market sale over asking utilizing Jen's network of brokers she works with in her course of business. No staging costs, no landscaping costs - and we did not have to have a weekend or more with people tramping through our home. During the selling process, Jen had some very honest conversations with the buyer's agent on our behalf and always made sure our interests were best represented in the closing process. The closing itself was smooth as silk, thanks to Jen! On finding a new home, Jen was the epitome of patience with us, as we had a specific list of non-negotiables for our next home in Danville/Alamo. She visited home after home with us, and pointed out things we missed in our home tours - Jen has a great eye for home values and what needs fixing or remodeling. And she was always at the ready to provide comps and analysis of how much a home we were interested in was really worth... When we finally found our new and awesome home in Danville, Jen worked tirelessly to get us a great negotiated price, to help us identify fixes we needed the seller to make - and to work the process from offer acceptance to home closing. She handled all of the buying process for us with great professionalism and precision. If you are buying a home in Danville or Alamo or San Ramon, call Jen Larson at Arrive, you will be so glad you did!

"went above and beyond to help us"
Katie Moe is simply the best! Katie went above and beyond to help us purchase the home that we really wanted. She listened to our needs as a family and helped us every step of the way. Katie has an outstanding knowledge of the city of Pleasanton and knows each neighborhood in great detail. She was straightforward about every aspect of the purchasing process and was in constant contact with us from the first day. We really appreciated knowing what was happening every step of the way. Katie also has an amazing and friendly team working with her at all times. Even after our purchase, Katie has checked in several times and we really appreciate that. She even used some personal connections to introduce our family to other members of the community. Katie made the entire process feel very easy. In this competitive market, Katie is the most important part of your team. We can't imagine this process without her. Katie Moe is who we will use for any future real estate purchases and is who we recommend to anyone that is buying or selling real estate.

"We engaged Jennifer Larson to help us sell our home"
We engaged Jennifer Larson to help us sell our home in April 2016. We were very impressed by her professional style and quick action. She has wonderful contacts (cleaners, painters, stagers, etc.) that prepared our home to sell at a price that set a record high for our model in our popular neighborhood. We would highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a top real estate agent and we are very grateful for all her help and attention to detail.

"We used Katie to find our house in Livermore"
We used Katie to find our house in Livermore in early 2015. She took me out to all the brokers tours before the weekend and was happy to show us anything we wanted to see. She understood our needs and found us a great house that we wound up getting, despite 6 other offers. When it came time to sell this house in early 2018, we hired her again. She's so personable, on top of things, and feels like a friend. She made the process smooth and easy to understand, so it was a no brainer to hire her again. I didn't want a real estate agent who felt like a total sales person, I wanted someone who felt like a friend and who had our best interests in mind, and that's Katie!

"Thanks to Jen, we just moved into our first home last month"
Thanks to Jen, we just moved into our first home last month. We went to showings just thrice with her and voila! We had our home. She was always patient, constantly bringing to our notice the smallest of details and informing us about the neighborhood, school ratings, proximity to shopping, recent sales and appraisals etc. Once we liked a place, she went all out on making it happen! She is a great closer who understands that price tag is not the only thing a seller notices when selecting an offer. We felt confident having her by our side through such a crucial process. She is a thorough professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy a house.

"Simply the smoothest Real Estate transaction"
Simply the smoothest Real Estate transaction My husband and I have ever experienced! Katie's knowledge of of Real Estate law was most impressive to us. Our sale was a little tricky and with Katies' educated guidance all the way,gave us a perfect end result.
- Gail and Mike George, Pleasanton
Premium-grade professionalism is what Jennifer Larson brought to every aspect of our real estate transactions this year. While we were living in the northeast corridor, Jennifer not only advised us on upgrades we needed to bring our Danville home to market for sale at the best price, she oversaw the entire process! Once Jennifer listed our home, it sold in six days for over asking price. When we found a home in the same area for sale with more space for our growing family, Jennifer worked with us to write a strong offer. Jennifer is a data-driven expert who demonstrated a keen insight into local market conditions. Jennifer closed the deal on the perfect home for our family and yielded exceptional value in the process.

"Purchased a single family home in Walnut Creek in May 2011"
Purchased a single family home in Walnut Creek in May 2011. Katie's knowledge of the area was invaluable. She able to tell us about the schools, local events, parks and fun things to do, commute routes...all of the things that were important to us. She was extremely responsive and went above and beyond during the closing process...she absolutely without a doubt made this process successful for us. We highly recommend Katie as an agent.
- Ann and Carlos Montilla, Walnut Creek
"Jennifer Larson was a pleasure to work with"
Jennifer Larson was a pleasure to work with while selling our home. Her knowledge of the Northridge neighborhood - its clubhouse amenities, local schools, neighborhood groups and community as well as knowing the typical buyer for a home in the neighborhood was definitely an asset. She discussed with us various things we could do to improve the potential listing price and time on market of our home. Because we were already living out of state, Jen arranged for the work we wanted done using her network of contacts at reasonable prices and kept us continually in the loop. After staging, the house looked great and was able to be put on market even earlier than initially planned. We ended up accepting an offer, over asking price within the first week after listing. We enjoyed working with Jen and highly recommend her when selling your home.
- Paula and Barry Moore
"Punctual and will follow up"
Katie is a fantastic Realtor! She will work relentlessly to get you the deal you need. Katie is punctual and will follow up on every lead. She will put extra time around the clock to complete the sale in record time. On top of it all she is just a joy to spend time with. Regardless of the type of property you have to sell or purchase we highly recommend Katie for any transaction!
- Lena Elbirt Danville
"Jennifer Larson is a fantastic realtor"
Jennifer Larson is a fantastic realtor who helped my husband and I purchase our first home together! We were both new to the process, and Jen really helped guide us through in a competitive market for buyers -- she was easy to get in touch with, highly responsive, and flexible in scheduling visits. When we found our dream house in Walnut Creek, we ended up competing against two all-cash offers, and Jen helped us to best position ourselves despite heated competition, and also provided a calming presence as we anxiously considered what to offer and then awaited the seller's decisions. We were so happy to get the house we wanted, and within the budget we had planned.

"Katie recently helped us find our new home."
Katie recently helped us find our new home. She made sure to really understand our priorities and worked diligently to search for the right home for us. She was very knowledgeable about the cities, and more importantly the neighborhoods, we ended up searching in. We always felt she was looking out on our behalf. Thanks again Katie!
- Sander Kim, Danville
"Jennifer helped us to understand the desired area"
Jennifer helped us to understand the desired area, compared different options and locations with us and understood our needs and wishes. Very patient with us and very responsive to any question and idea. She picked various options - not only to bid on but also to simply compare outside our search scope and also to understand our taste and personal limits. Once we decided to bid on a house, she went 120% after it and put herself in front of the selling agent and ahead of other interested parties. Very pleased with her competence, personal service and attention to details.
- Thomas & Andrea Koerner
"Katie Moe helped me sell my house last spring."
Katie Moe helped me sell my house last spring. She was honest, dedicated and very professional. She had my house staged and after the first weekend of an open house, we had 7 offers. She was patient and very flexible in scheduling as I work full time and am a single mom. She answered all of my questions and was easy to get a hold of when I had more questions! She was an outstanding realtor and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a house! The day of the move, she even brought my movers doughnuts! It was a treat!
- Gina Veuve-Hillier, Dublin

Jennifer helped our family sell our house in San Ramon with great success. She was extremely helpful and thoughtful working around a family's schedule with staging, and showings.

"Jennifer helped me sell my house in Windemere"
Jennifer helped me sell my house in Windemere with great success. She is an expert in the Danville/San Ramon area and helped me with all aspects of selling my home including small handyman needs, staging and showings. Due to her expertise on the market, we priced very well and received multiple offers above asking price. I would highly recommend Jennifer if you're looking for a knowledgeable real estate agent to help you!
- Michael Hutto
"Katie is extremely good at what she does"
Katie is extremely good at what she does. She is very knowledgeable, but more importantly, very focused on her customer and truly spends time building a partnership and relationship with her clients. She actively listened to our needs/wants, challenged us appropriately whenever we felt any hesitation when looking at a particular home and helped us narrow down a home we love. She helped us build a very competitive offer and kept us informed every step of the way. Her approach to real estate truly helps make her clients feel comfortable, informed and confident in their purchase. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"Jen is simply an amazing realtor"
Jen is simply an amazing realtor! She truly loves her job and it definitely shows through her enthusiasm, energy, promptness, attention to detail and never-ending patience. My wife Sandra and I had discussed selling our home on and off for a couple of years. Jen was never pushy and let us know that when the time was right for us, to give her a call. When we finally did this past December, she was able to stage our home and put it on the market in less than two weeks! We received multiple offers over asking the first weekend! All of Jen's contacts and network made closing the loan so easy. She is also very knowledgeable about all details of the contract and made sure we were protected and received the terms we were looking for. Jen also placed us in our new home. Our search was very wide in the beginning and we saw countless of homes before my wife and I narrowed in on what we were looking for. Jen set up viewing appointments around our hectic family schedule (3 toddler girls). And every time, she showed up with a smile on her face, comps and background information (even when she knew we wouldn't like the house). It was such a joy working with Jen and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any and everyone. Not only did we sell and buy a home, but we also gained a new friend in the process!

"Katie has been fantastic to work with!"
Katie has been fantastic to work with! This is our fourth home purchase and Katie’s understanding of our needs and in-depth knowledge of the market has made this the easiest purchase ever. She has been a great resource for our family who is new to the area – eager to share her familiarity with the community we chose to settle in. She has been always extremely professional: well prepared, available, flexible, conscientious, and honest. Katie is also a very warm and genuine person whom we came to like and appreciate on the personal level. We sincerely recommend Katie to anyone looking for just the right house to call home.
- Eric and Daga Svetcov, Pleasanton

- Mike Fitzgerald
"Katie had an in-depth understanding of our market"
From the time we first met with Katie, it was clear to us that she had an in-depth understanding of our market and was there to support us in any way we needed. Throughout the selling and buying process, Katie was there to respond and calm the nervous of both my wife and I. We are extremely grateful for Katie's knowledge and willingness to assist us through the challenges of selling and buying simultaneously. Thank you for all of your support!
- James and Chrissy Booe, Livermore
"Jen delivered the best experience"
Jen delivered the best experience I have had from a real estate agent. She is organized, personable and gets great results! We were very busy during our real estate transaction and Jen really made it all happen. The small things like meeting the cleaners at the house and providing great referrals (painters, etc.) were a huge help for us. I would use Jen as an agent in the future for sure and highly recommend her if you are selling or buying in the San Ramon area.
- Ron Yerkes
"Katie and her team were amazing"
Working with Katie was great! She was on top of the market, knowing where we should price our home to be competitive. She kept me updated on all open houses on a weekly basis. My home was beautifully staged and most of all I felt like she had our best interest at heart in our sell negotiations. If something needed to be done Katie and her team were amazing and there for us. Thank you Katie for taking as much of the stress away from home selling as you could, it was a pleasure working with you!
- An Kumpf
"I wouldn’t use any other agent!"
In the past year, Jen has represented me with both the sale of a home in Alamo, and most recently, for the purchase of my new home in Danville. Both transactions were completed on time in large part due to her professionalism and organization - she was on top of every detail, every step of the way! Our Alamo home sold for over asking, and thanks to Jen’s negotiation skills, we beat out 7 other offers on my new home. I can’t recommend her highly enough - I wouldn’t use any other agent!
- Barb Besse
"I like Katie because she listened to me"
I like Katie because she listened to me. At the very beginning we had an honest conversation about my budget, where I wanted to live and what that could afford. She never mismanaged my expectations. More importantly, she never tried to “up sale” me in to something that I couldn’t afford. She was extremely patient with me as my process took longer than most. I would absolutely use her again, and I always recommend her when I know someone who is looking to buy,
- Aimee Johns, San Ramon
"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jen for several years"
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jen for several years. She is one of the best Realtors out there. Her client's goals, her attention to details and past experience are just a few of her strong traits. She is efficient and always available to answer any questions or concerns that may come up. I highly recommend her if you are looking at selling your or purchasing a home
- Kaveh Sartipi
"Buying a home is naturally a stressful time"
I can not say enough wonderful things about Katie. Buying a home is naturally a stressful time, especially when you’re buying a bank owned home like we were. However, Katie takes always as much of the stress as she can and you always feel like you have a great person on your "team". Choose Katie as your agent and you won't regret your choice!
- Janette and Ryan Stifter, Pleasanton
"I have enormous respect for Jen Larson"
I have enormous respect for Jen Larson's tenacity and expertise in real estate sales in the East Bay. Jen has the unique ability to quickly and strategically assess the clients’ needs and efficiently get the resources pulled together to close the sale. Her dedication/drive to win for her customers is what sets Jen apart and we look forward to working with her again in the future.
- Amy Hirsch
"AwesomeSauce Super Agent!"
Katie is your AwesomeSauce Super Agent! A friend of mine living in the Pleasanton area recommended her, and our whole bidding/buying experience changed the split second we started talking with Katie! She kept us informed throughout the entire process of the purchase of our new home, always trying to make things easier for us, always asking us if there was anything else she could do for us.... I hardly believe you can get THAT kind of attention with anyone else, I DARE YA! ;) - Also, our sellers had become extremely difficult to work with, and i gotta admit, if it wasn't for Katie with her positive and sweet attitude, this deal would have fallen through. Katie Moe is Simply THE BEST in The WEST!

"Always looked out for what was best for us"
We just closed on our new and old home in San Ramon with Jennifer in a span of 2 months. We couldn’t be happier as the process was incredibly smooth and we give Jennifer all the credit she truly deserves. Jennifer’s extremely detailed, hard-working, incredibly responsive and is willing to explain every step of the way. She always looked out for what was best for us and what will benefit us throughout the entire process. On the buying side, she knew exactly the strategy to go in to get the house of our dreams and it wasn’t simply putting in the highest bid. She was able to show us a preview of a home in a highly desired part of San Ramon and we were able to get the house before it went into MLS, avoiding a bidding war in this chaotic real estate market. On the selling side, she had a list of recommended vendors that we can readily use to put our home on the market. She worked day and night to make it happen and strategizing the strength of our home and changing a few things to make it more appealing. In a span of 2 weeks, we were pending on our home and we just sold our home over $76K asking price. She was confident we could sell our home over asking and we listened to her recommendations throughout the process. And it happened. As simple as that.
- Eunah Lee
"We worked side by side with Jennifer"
We worked side by side with Jennifer. She was amazing! Fast to answer and return calls when missed. She walked us through all the stressful details. She was knowledgeable. She had all the right contacts. This was our first home loan and we had always heard how stressful it was to buy a house. We feel like we never experienced the stress that our friends described to us because of Jennifer! We will forever refer her and look forward to working with her again.
- Aaron & Debbie Texeira
"Jennifer Larson was our realtor and she was a complete pleasure to work with"
Jennifer Larson was our realtor and she was a complete pleasure to work with! Without being asked, she worked through the holidays and weekends to get the job done. Her due diligence and impeccable follow-up brought great results and we are very appreciative. I highly recommend Jennifer Larson!
- Marlene Sioson
"Working with Jen on the recent sale of our house was a pleasure"
Working with Jen on the recent sale of our house was a pleasure. She was highly organized, communicated with us throughout the entire process and even anticipated our questions so we knew exactly what to expect. We were in contract for over asking within 3 days of going on the market but at the very last minute the buyer got cold feet and backed out. Jennifer immediately went to work, working late into the night to find us another buyer and we were back in contract by noon the next day! She was amazing. We got over our asking price and couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. We would highly recommend her!
- Julie and Bob Cooney
"We met Jennifer for the first time when we came to the showing in Pleasant Hil"
We met Jennifer for the first time when we came to the showing in Pleasant Hill. We did not buy the property but were left with a long lasting first impression of professionalism, dedication, knowledge, and personal service at all levels. Jennifer exceeded all of our expectations and stayed in touch throughout the next few months emailing us with properties that were available and showing us several properties in Danville, San Ramon, Walnut Creek, and Pleasant Hill. When the time came to sell our family home in Martinez, Jennifer was the only choice because of her knowledge of the market, integrity, and personal level of service. We decided to leave on vacation and have Jennifer take care of the sale of our home. Jennifer used professional photographer, staged our home, had the house cleaned spotless so it looked like a model home and drew so much interest in just a few days we had the best offer we could hope for. Jennifer correctly priced the home but we received and accepted an offer well above asking price, and negotiated free rent back! Jennifer assisted us in finding a rental property until we found a perfect townhome in Moraga. Once again, Jennifer represented us as buyers and used her professional skills to close the deal quickly, efficiently, negotiating all the necessary repairs in our favor. We moved to our new home knowing that we got the best deal and best representation in the area!
