This is our 3rd time working with Kathy and I seems as though each experience has been better than before.. As always, she went above and beyond the call of a "real estate agent". We were moving 8 hours away and we were constantly needing to travel to look for a new house. Kathy always made herself available for potential prospects. I have to say that I never doubted our home selling quickly with her. I knew that as soon as it went on the market, she would get it sold. We moved out about a month before our home in Sacramento even closed, and Kathy made numerous trips to the home for inspections, appraisals, and all repair work. And I never had to ask how things were progressing; she always kept us in the loop of EVERYTHING that was going on. I will admit, it's a little sad to think that she will no longer be our agent unless we move back to Northern California. She really is Superwoman. We appreciate all that she did for us and hope that we will cross paths someday in the future.

Dear readers, My name is Janee and I am a proud new homeowner. I began my search on line to see what the market was like, local listings led me to Zip realty and to Kathy Barragan. Kathy was professional, efficient, and knowledgable, and understood my particular needs. I feel she took her job and our relationship with responsibility and great care. I would be happy to recommend Kathy and Zip realty for anyone.

Kathy did a fantastic job for us. As out of state sellers of an estate property, we were very dependent on her for all aspects of the sale and could not have been happier with her service, professionalism and attention to detail. It was a difficult process because of the probate situation and the unresponsiveness of the court system. She's a keeper!!

I can safely echo all the positive comments that others have made about Kathy. I purchased at home in February of 2012 after an initial short sale offer back in November of 2011. Kathy saw the slow process through with periodic updates on the status. If you are willing to work with her, she is willing to work with you. Not living locally made it difficult for me to view all properties but Kathy was the consummate professional attending the opening houses and emailing me the photos and comments for the best home possible. Due to her attentiveness, I wanted to purchase another Elk Grove home. Due to the recent rising property prices, she suggested that I purchase a new home with all the new items and upgrades not found in older homes for about the same price. I took her sound advice and moved into a Taylor Morrison home for about $160 per square feet which much less than the $180-200 per square feet. Kathy is willing to answer the hard questions, help me stand in during the final walk-through and, go the extra mile to ensure that you are satisfied as a client. She even promised me a nice house warming gift.

This was my first experience purchasing a home and I have to say Kathy's patience with my questions was amazing. She is lightning fast with her her replies to email, v-mail and text. Kathy was very accessible and solution driven. I appreciate the assertiveness she delivered during my family's home buying experience.

Kathy is really nice person. Since we are living far away, she eve helped us to visit some house and took photos for us. Also, she is proactive to do things. Also she has very positive attitude. Overall, she met all my expectation.

It was an enjoyable experience working with Kathy. (Now how often can you say that about the home buying task). She was quick to respond to any questions, very thoughtful of my time and above all patient. Once the prefect house was found she stayed on top of all the details and got the place closed in record time. From the summitting the offer to closing was under 20 days. Now that the home is closed she still is being vert helpful. I had called a tree service to get a quote on trimming and removing a few trees, it came in very high, Kathy was there with some other choices, not pushing one or the other but just giving me few other companies to call. We also needed to have ramps for wheelchairs, Kathy again pointed us in the right direction. She has become a valued friend in this crazy process of buying a home. We couldn't have asked for better service. I would HIGHLY recommend Kathy.

Kathy, in my opinion is the best in the business. Her commitment to the client is unmatched. She really is a beacon of excellence rarely seen in today's world. If I was to purchase or sell another home I would not even bother to look anywhere else. She is amazing.

Definitely the most knowledgeable, patient, non-pushie, and professional agent I have ever worked with. It has been a pleasure. She knew all about the other realtors, agencies, and loan agents. She hooked us up with the best loan officer. We can definitely do business again.

I am Chinese. I do not speak or understand English well. I felt so fortunate that Ms. Kathy Barragan was my realty agent; she helped me a lot. I appreciated Kathy's help and patience tremendously. She took her valuable time to explain the important document and information to me numerous times. When I didn???t understand what she was saying; she took her time to find and use different wordings, easy words and re-explained until I understood. She didn???t make me feel that I was unintelligent, uneducated or a high maintenance person. That was very nice of her that she tried her best to help me. Kathy knew that I wouldn???t know where and how to find people to fix up the house; so she gave me a few repairman referrals. I feel bad because I had bothered her a lot. I called her many times when I had questions or was not sure about certain issues regarding the house; she always stepped out her way to help me. She was always there when I needed her. I appreciated her help greatly and I am pleased of her service!

Kathy was very professional and personable. Kathy had great knowledge of loan qualifications and awareness of housing market. The comfort and ease Kathy made my husband and I feel was top notch. Buying our house was sheer joy and happiness we are so glad to have been given the chance to work with Kathy. Since our home purchase we have become great friends and has changed my life greatly; as I hope to become a realtor and follow in Kathy's footsteps. Kathy and ZIP your number ONE in our books.

Kathy was the most responsive, customer-service oriented agent we have ever worked with, and we have used many in our life-time. She was patient, knowledgeable, and despite her hectic schedule, always made time to respond to us quickly. She never pressured us to purchase the most expensive home, but really listened to what it was that we were looking for, not just in a house, but in a home .

My wife and I can not imagine working with anyone else but Kathy. Kathy was always informing us of changes and guiding us through the confusing process of buying a home even when she was on vacation. I would not often recommend someone to other people, but with Kathy's excellent performance I would not recommend anyone but her. Thanks Kathy, Jonathan and Ivette Davis

Kathy is the best agent in the world. Kathy went above and beyond any other agent to both find our home and top notch to get the short sale closed very quickly. She is a great buyers link to the process and was the most helpful person I have ever worked with. I have used zip to buy another home, Kathy and zip by far are the top notch companies. we have dealt with other Real Estate agents and zip hits the top of the bunch.

Kathy was the only agent who worked with me before I was pre-approved for a home loan. Other real estate agents at other agencies all told me to call them after I was pre-approved. Kathy guided me through the process and helped me find a lender who was able to take me through that part of the process. She pretty much pep talked me into going forward in a home purchase. I probably would have given up on my own.

Kathy was very efficient and timely. She most often got back to me quickly if I had questions or wanted to see a property which I felt was more than reasonable considering I wasn't the only buyer she was representing. Ultimately, she had a good rapport with the selling agent of the home I bought and I think that went a long way for me getting the home during a competitive bidding process. Reputation is important and in my case, if she wasn't respected in the industry, the ending to my story might have gone differently.

Kathy was great! Although this was her first foreclosure, and my first house, she worked hard at making this 'deal' as easy for me as possible. Unfortunately, the selling agent was extremely difficult to work with - unresponsive, positively worthless. Kathy was unflapable. She powered through all of the selling agent's 'issues' and made it so I didn't blow out my brains. As soon as possible, Kathy was also able to get a different agent to work with her. (Personally, I think the original selling agent should be fired and never allowed to practice again!) Kathy followed through on all her promises, timelines, etc. Even though the title company (and my mortgage company) seemed to delay the closing, Kathy did everything she could to keep me calm. I would, and will, recommend her to my friends and colleagues. She's definitely an asset to your company.
