Katie Hammer Riggs
Coldwell Banker Realty

Adam & Michaela Scheuer, Menlo Park
"Katie and Pam helped us out with our biggest purchase to date. They were able to answer or find the answers to every question we came up with, and we had many questions throughout the sales process. Once we found the house that met all our needs, the Katie and Pam team went into overdrive. They were able to negotiate a deal that was within our budget for a home that initially was out of our budget. It is so great telling our friends the story, our dream is now a reality"

Christine Bartles, Palo Alto
"Pam and Katie navigated our family through all stages of our first real estate search in Palo Alto. They started by presenting a wide range of helpful data points for competitive market analysis and taking us on efficient tours of properties which specifically suited our needs and taste. They then moved on to advice on mortgage arrangements (further facilitated by their firm's connections) and carefully prepared offers, some of them put together in our absence. They guided us wisely through a bidding war that was memorable even by local standards, and engaged in an unscripted negotiation that led to the successful purchase of the house that had been our first choice. Along the way, we learned a lot from them on everything from underground termites to chimney repair. Pam and Katie are felicitously paired indeed, and between them are able to deal successfully and quickly with every new development in a search - perhaps all real estate agents ought to think about pairing up, following their example. In a profession featuring plenty of fast talkers, unrealistic gamblers, and inexperienced lemmings, Pam and Katie stand out for their calm and pleasant personal style, their outstanding combined experience and knowledge of the local market, their evident professional ethics and healthy skepticism of any kind of hype, their prompt and competent fact gathering and paperwork, and their ability to engage effectively with a wide range of personalities among sellers, buyers, and colleagues in their field. I highly recommend them."

Yasmin & Shaun, Los Altos
"We can't say enough about how wonderful Pam and Katie are to work with. They are dedicated, passionate and extraordinarily knowledgeable. We are so fortunate to have worked with them...we truly feel that it was through their efforts that we were able to purchase the house we always hoped. We had such a great experience and would recommend them to anyone we know buying a house in the Peninsula."

Yvonne & Enrique, San Carlos
"Working with Pam and Katie Hammer has been a pleasure. The fact that they work as a team facilitates communication. They were organized and efficient in their strategy for finding us our new home. Their negotiation strategies are also superb. We would not hesitate to recommend them to all our friends and colleagues. Their assistance continued well beyond the closing on our home with their follow up on our satisfaction and recommendations for contractors. They are very professional and always easily reached."

Todd & Marjel, Menlo Park
"Pam and Katie provided us with excellent advice during an extremely competitive market. Their knowledge of Peninsula real estate is unmatched and take a personal interest in seeing that you make smart decisions while evaluating your options. We felt we had found a top-tier broker in Pam and Katie and feel very comfortable referring them to our closest friends and family."

Lee & Kim, Portola Valley
"In the heat of negotiations she is calm, cool and collected- she never"heats"up and can diffuse a difficult situation. She listens to her clients(when we got that first offer, she didn't push us to take it). She was really helpful in getting our house on the market-getting the workers in,getting the inspections done ASAP, etc. She brought the right people into set a price for our house." 

Sarah & Jeff Phillips, Menlo Park
"Pam and Katie were committed to finding a house for us that met our needs, as well as our price range. They know the area very well, and quickly learned what we wanted in a home."
