I've read the many previous reviews and agree with all of them. I am new to the home-buying process so I counted on the broker I hired to have integrity and honesty leading me through the process. I was referred to Kira and glad for it. She showed me all that was available --- quickly assessing which few would be more appropriate.
I will give specifics on how Kira did her job well as well as how she went above and beyond:
1. She explained every document that I had to sign.
2. She explained every step of the process - like inspections, testing, and escrow.
3. She helped find help to get the house cleaned and the yard mowed before I moved.
4. She texted, e-mailed or called frequently and responded promptly to all of my MANY MANY MANY inquiries...since I was so new to this and my loan was unconventional (in structure, not in interest rate brackets) I had LOTS of questions.
5. She allayed some anxieties and fears that naturally arose for me.
I hope you get the picture that if you want to work with someone who is efficient, competent and a nice person, you shouldn't be disappointed hiring Kira
I would recommend Kira to my mother and father, family member, or any friend if they desired to purchase or sale a home or property.
Kira is knowledgeable, focused, good listener, and thoroughly gets the job done.
Her grasp of the market on the coast was unsurpassed.
Kira is an excellent find, so glad i found her for this resent buy.
We were new to the area and had to rely on Kira for local information and to screen listings as we couldn't be there to see them for ourselves. We needed enough acerage for our horses and had a limited budget -- not an easy find. Kira stuck with us and found us just the right spot. And maybe more importantly, saved us from buying property that could not be developed. Excellant agent, highly recommend
My wife and I had thought about moving to a new house for over a decade, but the prospect of actually doing it seemed daunting. So when two years ago a medical problem necessitated that we make a move as soon as possible, we didn't know where to start. Fortunately, we met Kira Meade who as a real estate agent had all the qualities we were looking for to seamlessly guide us through the complicated process of both buying a new house and then selling our old house.
Kira visited us in our old home, took some preliminary photos, and then gave us an overview of the steps involved. She understood the kind of place we were looking for and contacted us immediately when something came available for a tour. Kira was extremely well informed, patiently answered all of our questions, got back to us promptly when additional information was required, and made herself readily accessible when we needed to contact her. Although we didn't want to start the process finding a buyer for our old house until we were comfortably ensconced in our new house, by the time we arrived at that point Kira already had a couple in mind who were very interested our old place. Although some complicated negotiations were required to deal with an unforeseen structural problem in our old house, Kira lent us a steady hand in navigating that process to a mutually agreeable conclusion. We can highly recommend Kira to anyone who needs the help of a professional for a real estate transaction
Kira helped us buy our retirement home from out of state. It was difficult for us and she was very patient. When I made the trip to view the home she devoted a full day to me. She was also very thorough in explaining local building ordinances and codes, such as the difference between the historical districts in the area.
Kira also negotiated and procured the bids for necessary repairs after the inspection, which would have been impossible for us to do from out of state. Since the former owners were also out of state she stayed very busy!
When in came time to close Kira was instrumental in moving along the process of our loan company releasing funds. She remained calm and helped us feel better about the process. Kira also found a temporary tenant for our property, as we were not ready to occupy it immediately. Her connections to the community have created resources for us to draw on
Made buying from 1000 miles away a breeze. Very responsive and easy to deal with. Got us a great buy. Would use again. She knew the northern california area very well and advised on the best way to get the land we wanted.
We recently bought a home in Mendocino CA and as luck would have it, we met Kira from Costal. She did a fantastic job helping us find a vacation home for our family. She was very helpful and informative with the home purchase and also the area. We would not hesitate to engage Kira in the future.
In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn't have done it without you!

Kira was great, very helpful and responsive. She was a real pleasure to work with.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy in Mendocino area.
Kira was a lifesaver for us on more than one occasion. We were going nowhere in a rather difficult negotiation, and she had several great ideas on how to make things work. She is on top of things and follows up all the way to the end. She enabled us to get our dream house. Thank you, Kira. Highly recommend for the Mendocino area.
Kira Meade was a marvel. She was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, helpful, patient, and utterly reliable.She always kept us informed and was on top of all the details. Kira took great pains to understand what it is we were looking for and to try to match us with a property that would work for us. Endlessly patient, Kira was always available to show us any properties that interested us and to suggest new ones that seemed better suited to our interests and budget. KIra was utterly honest with us about the strong and weak points of any property we looked at, which gave us confidence that she was really interested in matching us with the right house and not just in making a sale. Once we settled on a property we wanted, Kira was fantastic about walking us through all the paperwork and procedures that were required to close the deal. We would be 100% ready to use Kira again on any property matters.
I called Kira Meade after reading her credentials, and she answered me immediately. She was more than ready to assist us on our first day in search of a home in the Fort Bragg area.
Kira was professional, from start to finish, and possessed the expertise to answer any and all questions, process paperwork expediently, and was 'on call' whenever we had questions or needed assistance with advice on the process we were going through with selling our home in Sonoma.
We would highly recommend her as a reliable realtor for any and all needs.

Kira was just the agent I needed! She is prompt, professional, and really works to get the best for her clients! I felt very good about her being the person to represent me in my purchase. She really bent over backwards to make it happen for me too. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
One can not do better than Kira Meade for professional, effective representation in real estate matters in Mendocino. She consistently has gone WAY above-and-beyond fighting for her clients' best interest. I could not hope for anyone better to have on my side. She deserves the highest recommendation possible. A bonus: She has a great personality and is easy to work with, too.
