Kunz Team


Jordan Malone  Renee made everything so easy! This was my first time purchasing a home and she took the time explain all the steps in detail. I always felt like she was watching out for me! I had a funky schedule and Renee always accommodated me. I’ll be back when I purchase my next home.

Ed & Mary Ann Elliott  We actually chose John and Renee Kunz to be our realtors because we were very impressed with their reviews.  We wanted someone who could handle the complexity of selling an older home and loved the fact that the two of them were a team.  Even though the commission on our home was not as lucrative as other properties in the area, they had professional photos taken, conducted an open house, and treated us with professionalism and respect.  Their advice for the listing price was excellent—we received a solid offer within 2 days!  No hassles, no headaches.  During the negotiation process, they spotted problems that we might have missed in that often confusing sea of documentation, protecting us from unreasonable demands.  They even reviewed paperwork and negotiated for us while on their family’s vacation which we really appreciated.  We absolutely would recommend them to anyone either buying or selling because we could tell that they not only looked out for us and our interests as the sellers, but they also encouraged us (and helped us!) to be very transparent in our written disclosures about the state of our home so that potential buyers would be able to make an honest, informed decision about an accurately priced home.

Alesia Endres  Living in the Midwest with a home in California to sell so choosing a realtor had its challenges. With the help of our local realtor, Renee Kunz, Intero Real Estate, A Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, was recommended. Renee guided us through the preparation and listing of the house. She provided superior contacts for landscape, roof repair, interior repair and cleaning. What should have been multiple trips by me to California only required one trip. Renee went above and beyond providing superior service. I highly recommend Renee as your realtor; you will be pleased. Thank you, Renee for everything, we could not have done this without you!

Carole Gaglio Brum  Renee is absolutely wonderful to work with when you are trying to sell a property. She, and her mother, offered wonderful advice, listened to our wants, needs and concerns, and she reacted quickly as the market began to cool. Renee kept us updated throughout our showing and escrow closing processes. We simply couldn’t have asked for a better partner in selling our property! Thus, it is without hesitation that we would recommend Renee and would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Joseph & Mary Fowles  Renee did a wonderful job throughout the process of selling our home in Hollister, CA. We appreciate everything she did for us and highly recommend her.

Rui & Tami Toste  My wife and I have experienced both house-buying and house-selling with John & Renee Kunz for years and have found them to be honest and knowledgeable in the real estate market both on the buying and selling of homes. Most important they understand the details of contracts as to help us through the  maze of complex paperwork, home inspections and the processes with buyers and sellers concluding agreements. We are very happy with the experience and professionalism that John & Renee Kunz brought to the table and making successful transactions in our past, present and the future.

Leah Medina  Renee is truly one of the best in the business. If you’re looking for an agent who is passionate and dedicated in helping you with a smooth as possible transaction, choose Renee. As a first time home buyers, my husband and I had many questions. She was very accessible and answered all our questions. She is knowledgeable, resourceful and patient, above all is compassionate and kind. She went above and beyond for us, she was able to negotiate the best terms to meet our needs. My family and I are truly grateful we found Renee, she helped make our dreams come true.

Curtis Williams  Initial experience with this team was fantastic, have bought two commercial properties with them, and the continued advice, support, and work they continue to offer is first class. The feeling of creating a team rather than being a one time customer is more valuable than can be described. Will  only use Renee and John for all my real estate needs.

Peter Casper  I can’t say enough positive words for all that Renee has done through my home selling process!! Renee was pro-active and informative throughout the whole process!! Every detail and decision was communicated to me clearly, effectively and thoughtfully!! I love the way Renee works and will recommend her to anyone that may consider buying or selling a home!! Thank you so much Renee!!

Debbie Magnasco Renee has helped me purchase one property and sell two. She is now helping me sell a third. She has people who will do all that needs to be done when buying or selling. I never thought of using anyone else when I wanted to sell my third property. She is very knowledgeable.

Alicia and Phillip Vargas Awesome team, we were introduced by a Family Friend and have bought and sold 4 houses with Renee and John. They have become part of the Family! We have known them going on 15+ years. They are very knowledgeable and will go that extra mile for you! Can’t go wrong with Renee and John!

Angela and Gerald Thompson I first met Renee in 1997 when I moved to Hollister and knew nothing about the area. Her guidance and expertise were invaluable and productive. I had previously worked with a couple of agents that got me nowhere. Last year John and Renee showed me numerous properties and were always prompt, informed and honest. I appreciate not only their work ethic but also their integrity.

Careen and Leonard  Caputo Renee was a professional. She exceeded our expectations. She took the extra effort. We also used her services to purchase an investment property. Renee’s knowledge and dedication were exceptional.

Christine Kull Great experience! Renee was my Realtor, as a buyer, and coincidentally, John was the seller’s Realtor. They are a great team, and structured a plan that worked well on both ends. John was very helpful explaining inspections, even though I was Renee’s client, he was always available. Renee went above and beyond. She helped me find contractors for work to be done after escrow! She met with handymen, plumbers, electricians, on my behalf, even though it had nothing to do with the actual sale! Renee always had great ideas regarding financing, and the knowledge to run numbers, letting me know where I stood financially. I will always recommend John and Renee Kunz to family and friends that are in need of Realtor services. They’re so great, you almost forget to stress about moving!!

Christopher Toste If you want your dream home, if you’re looking for an investment to flip, if you’re just a first time home buyer, John and Renee will make it happen. Don’t bother with anyone else because the Kunz team puts their heart and soul into their work! They also know quite a lot about things outside of real estate like cooking and travel too! They are just really successful people that help others be successful too. I don’t have enough kind words for Renee and John. You will not be disappointed.  John and Renee are the best in the business! I love them so much because they never fail me. They always go above and beyond to make what needs to happen, happen. Buying homes, selling homes, let the Kunz Team take care of you! Their confidence and knowledge of the business will amaze you!

Doug and Jennifer Forsyth My wife and I were referred to Renee from our realtor, David Kim, since he was not a local agent. Renee was very knowledgeable and to the point. During our listing appointment, she told us what our house would sell for as is and how long it would take to sell. If we wanted top dollar, she recommended staging and making some changes to the backyard. She also helped us deal with KB Homes to get some cosmetics cracks in the ceiling fixed, by using her husband’s, John, knowledge since he use to be a home inspector. We had an open house about every weekend and were able to sell our house in about two months. This coincided with her time frame as to how long it would take to sell and the price she stated it would sell for. Since this was our first home sale, she made the negotiation painless and she guided us on what she thought we should counter and what we shouldn’t. Overall, it was a pleasure to work with Renee and I would contact her in the future for any sales or purchases.

Enz Family Renee and John are motivated with experience to get your sale! They have assisted us in selling our business with success! They are a pleasure to work with, and you will be pleased to have them for the job! Awesome couple!

Helen and Rick Bush John and Renee provided the ultimate in service and professionalism. We were kept aware of what was happening with every step. They are Great people!

Jill and Steve Foster Renee and John listed two of our properties this past fall. They both received multiple offers and both sold over the asking price. They also helped prep the homes to show very well. We were doing a 1031 exchange and they made sure everything went very smoothly. I would definitely use them again to sell property.

Julie Laib One would think that looking for a new home would be the most exciting thing. And for the most part it is. This time for me it was a tough and difficult experience. Divorce forced me to find a new home. Renee and John took a very difficult situation and handled it with great professionalism, compassion and so much knowledge that reassured me every step of the way. We saw dozens of homes and dealt with so many of my changing emotions. Renee and John know the market, have the best negotiation skills, provided invaluable answers to all my questions, have the resources and connections to get the job done. And through it all cared for me with genuine kindness! In a heartbeat I would recommend them if you are looking to buy or sell a home. Good, good people they are!

Julie and Phil Rossi Renee has assisted my family with the sale and purchase of two separate homes over the past 10 years. Her experience and knowledge of not only Hollister but also surrounding communities give her clients an advantage. Her years of experience allow her to make an educated guess about how the market may perform in the future. She has been “spot on” with the advice and recommendations she has given my husband and I so far. Renee is the agent you want on your side; she goes to bat for you. To her, it is not about the sale; it’s about helping make your dreams a reality. Or at the very least, help get you one step closer to reaching them. Her personal service and genuine concern for her clients is the reason she will be the agent I call for all my real estate needs.

Karim Malek I have known Renee for a long time and she does a fantastic job and gives great customer service.  I recommend her highly.  I worked with her over ten years ago and she made me feel like family.  You are in good hands working with her.  I have recommended her to friends and everyone likes working with her.

Katie Cameron ~ VP Pacific Diversified Insurance I’ve purchased many homes in my life, and have offered on plenty more. I am demanding (in a nice way), a negotiator and annoyingly detail-oriented. These traits serve me in business, but I doubt they make me a realtor’s favorite client.

I have worked with countless real estate agents and brokers, and most have been satisfactory at best. I expect no-fluff honesty, a true opinion (don’t kiss up to me), and vast experience, from which real estate wisdom has been gleaned and applied (years under the belt is not enough). If you don’t have the answer, I expect you to say so, and then find it.

Renee is all of this and surprisingly more. In our first home tour, she asked unusual questions and watched me as I wandered. She was getting to know my reactions, my objectives, what I wanted, what I needed; identifying my “home” traits of which even I wasn’t aware (sometimes a home may have everything on your list but it doesn’t feel right. OR it has nothing on your list, but it just feels good).

She was getting to the heart of that. She’s the first intuitive broker I’ve run across.

She’s a natural behind the scenes, too. She knows the lenders, the other agents, the marketplace, the contracts, the hidden agendas, the game; and she’ll explain to make sure you understand at every step. She is creative and thinks ahead, showing scenarios with varying strategies – downs, multiple purchases for investments, etc. She stays ahead of you.

She has the patience of a saint. She will guide and teach, but you are the boss. She won’t sit back waiting for you to choose from an automated list of everything out there (you can pull these online); but instead will weed through it all for you, finding and sending you only the relevant homes, plus discovering that unknown gem before it hits.

Yes, I will buy and sell every home through her from now on, and will make sure everyone I know uses her too.

It’s a no brainer. You wouldn’t go to just any doctor, would you? Your home, whether as your residence or a rental investment, is a huge asset, and you must take great care. Renee is the real estate specialist extraordinaire.

Lisa and Richard Raisbeck John and Rene Kunz are an amazing team, their follow up, honesty and integrity is impeccable. We’ve used The Kunz Team for four home purchases over the years and we highly recommend their expertise.

Lori and Dior Lowhorn I had worked with John for several years trying to find a house/condo in San Jose as well as Hollister, CA. After years of going to open houses and bidding wars we finally stumbled across a single story bank owned foreclosure property here in Hollister. After a two day bidding war online we were able to secure this home at a very affordable price given market conditions! Since buying in July, 2015 we were able to transform this fixer upper into a modern day gem because the selling price was below our budget! was John always prompt and available for showings he was knowledgeable on market trends as well as appraisal criteria! He even put me in touch with Cynthia Holthouse over at prospect mortgage for lending help! John and his wife Renee truly are the “Kunz team” as they really are the complete package when it comes to your real estate needs! I highly recommend them!

Nicole and Justin Askew John and Renee Kunz have been so wonderful to work with. They’ve always been so helpful and have great advice for picking your new home. They helped us buy our first home and helped us buy our forever home. I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to help us with our search. I highly recommend them both!

Polly and Mark Lange John and Renee were great to work with when buying our home. They are both very knowledgeable about the area and what is currently happening in the housing market. They are a great resource when visiting houses because of their experience and ability to point things out (good and bad items) in the different homes we visited. It was a real pleasure working with John and Renee. We would highly recommend working with the Kunz team.

Rudy Castillo John Kunz was very effective and professional in handling my real estate needs. John went the “extra mile” for me by handling everything, while I was an out of town client. Thank you and your staff for the excellent service.

Sandy and Salvador Castro Renee was amazing at helping us out! She is very knowledgeable and helped us out in every way she could! Renee is very patient and thorough. She was great at helping us out with any questions and leading us in the right direction. Renee made us feel comfortable and did not rush us into purchasing something that we did not like nor want. Renee is always available to help us out and is quick to respond.

Sarah and Curt Disney The realtor team of Renee & John Kunz are very professional, punctual and caring. Always making you feel like you’re the most important people on the planet and finding you a home to suit your needs becomes their mission until they find it. They have been our realtors through the buying and selling of our homes including investment property. Both have a wealth of knowledge in this industry and literally have made a network of professionals from mortgage lenders, contractors to CPA’s to help you make your home buying experience easier. We highly recommend them.  From mortgage lenders, contractors to CPA’s to help you make your home buying experience easier, we highly recommend them.

SheaLynn and Darryl Kriner It is hard to express how much they help me and my wife. We were buying our first house and they took the time to explain everything and work with use. John made us feel at comfortable through the whole process. When we upgrade we plan on staying with Renee and John!

Stacey and Brennan Porteur John worked with my husband and I to find the perfect home. He hustled to find the homes that had the qualities we were looking for and made appointments immediately for us to see those homes. Even now that we are in our dream home, he still checks in with us on a regular basis to say hello and make sure we are doing OK. He and his wife send out informative newsletters and we even get a lovely Christmas card every year which always makes me smile. Thanks for all your hard work John.

Tami and Rui Toste We would highly recommend working with Renee and John Kunz for your residential as well as commercial property listings or purchases. We have worked with both of them for several years buying and selling several properties and all have been a smooth process. The communication is excellent as well as the attentiveness to details. We will continue to work with them for all our future property investments even if we were to purchase out of state we would want them to be involved in the process as we greatly trust their input and advice.  (They were) the BOMB! They listened to our needs and our expectations then went right to work. If you need excellence, professionalism and results, you won’t be disappointed!

Ted and Shelley Rodriguez John was very patient with us during our purchasing process. We never felt like we were being rushed or pushed into making the decision of buying a home. John also has a unique back round that most other realtors do not have. John’s prior career was as a home inspector. His knowledge and expertise in home construction, varies utility equipment, and plumbing of the home were a huge benefit. We often relied on his eyes during the inspection process of buying a home. This really helped when it came to understanding the seller’s asking price and being aware of additional cost for items in need of repair or replacement. My wife and I would definitely work with John again when it comes to the real estate market.
