Hear what the clients say about working with Kristi and the team:


“Over many years we have bought and sold about 14 homes in multiple cities across the United States. During these transactions, we have encountered several really excellent realtors; some of whom ranked very high in their local markets in terms of sales volumes. Nevertheless, Kristi Knowles and her team have been our best experience to date! Kristi was always available, was extremely responsive and was very pro-active in communicating with us. We toured numerous homes in several areas and her knowledge and ability to pick up the small details that could lead to problems saved us from making offers on homes that likely would have been disasters.  While our previous realtors always seemed to be trying to sell us on whatever house we were looking at, instead Kristi always seemed primary to have our best interests in mind.  For example, due to her attention to details associated with our interests, she helped us purchase our new home at a cost that was $170,000 less than list price. Kristi provided important information to us throughout the entire process and we learned more from this one transaction with her than all other 14 combined. We became confident and comfortable having her represent  us, and we have already recommended her to several friends in the market and will continue to do so.”   -Mr. & Mrs. Dunker



“We were in ESCROW in less than 1 WEEK for OVER ASKING PRICE! “I would like to take this opportunity to praise the best real estate agent in the South Bay! We received an advertisement letter from Kristi Knowles and her team in the mail and decided to give her a call. The letter from Kristi had lots of promises and guarantees, needless to say, we had our doubts but still decided to meet her. After meeting with Kristi, we were confident that she would deliver those promises and guarantees. She was very knowledgeable, honest, clear and concise. Everything was transparent and understandable so we hired Kristi to be our listing agent. She had a comprehensive and strategic marketing plan which was very impressive. After listing our house on the market, we were in escrow in less than 1 week for over the asking price! Throughout the entire process, Kristi was very attentive to our needs, communicated on a daily basis and constantly made sure we were aware of every update on the sale. Kristi Knowles not only delivered but exceeded our expectations and I would give her my highest recommendation.” ~ Marcio M. / First Responder, Torrance, CA


“After only one weekend of Open Houses, we received three offers the very next day (two of which were over the asking price). We attribute this all to our realtor, Kristi Ramirez-Knowles. Her unique marketing and preparation of our home brought in more than 140 people and even received compliments from other realtors. We were on the market before with another agent who held numerous open houses over 90 days and we did not get a single offer. Kristi also helped us secure the best escrow company and title company to ensure we were getting the best service at the most reasonable cost. She was present at every inspection to again look after our best interest. Our experience partnering with Kristi far exceeded our expectations. If you are thinking of selling or buying a home, call Kristi. You couldn’t be in better hands.”


“Kristi came to my aid and offered timely expert advice, encouragement and support during a very emotionally trying time in my life and divorce process. Kristi always responded promptly and came prepared with data and experience. She offered me connections to lenders and multiple brilliant ideas on listing and selling our home. In my humble opinion, Kristi is the whole package. Faithful, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Kristi Knowles to guide you and be a source of comfort, vision, and encouragement during what can be a very stressful time while selling your home.” – Megan Fox


“I worked with Kristi Knowles on a recent transaction and appreciated her continued professionalism throughout the entire process. She was extremely helpful in identifying a coveted opportunity, but also very strategic in persuading the seller to select us. My colleagues and I enjoyed working with   Kristi and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone pursuing real estate opportunities in Southern California. She is hard-working, well prepared, and puts the client first. Kristi’s ability to source unique opportunities is a tremendously valuable skillset. Most importantly, she is a quality person who possesses the highest degree of integrity and character.”  – Dan Weinstein, Managing Partner CTI, LLC.


“It was great working with Kristi Ramirez-Knowles on the purchase of one of my investment properties. She was constantly in communication and provided a lot of insight on the seller. Although our escrow included two 1031 exchanges and having to add on an extension, Kristi stayed ahead of the game and ensured we had a successful close. It was a pleasure working with Kristi and I would recommend to anyone looking to purchase real estate.” Anthony Bonenfant, Account/Owner.


Peace of Mind, Professional Team & Great Results!

Our property would never have sold if not for the relentless marketing by Kristi Knowles. Most listing agents just want the easy money, not Kristi. Kristi had “Open Houses” every week. She personally engaged with every person who walked through our house. Kristi was not afraid to engage in the negatives and even offered solutions. She knew every inch of our house and was quick to point out the positives – even ones that might go unnoticed by a potential buyer. Within 15 minutes of closing an open house, we were given detailed feedback on the day’s visitors. If you want to sell your house, we 110% endorse Kristi Knowles. Give her an opportunity – you will not be disappointed! ” ~ Chris & Sippy B.  /  USA Olympic Athlete, Manhattan Beach, CA
