Get to Know Ken & Linda Pillard

Hi" We are Ken and Linda Pillard and the best way to tell you who we are and what we do is by telling you a quick story.

 We are dedicated and driven Real Estate Consultants that are consistently striving to provide you with "World Class Service" professionally, personally, and carefully.  For the past 22+ amazing years we have thoroughly focused on serving the booming and thriving community of Yolo County.

We are committed to offering high-quality personal service not for one transaction...but for a lifetime.  As we build a strong and lasting lifetime relationship with you, we make a 100% commitment to listen and understand your needs and goals, educated and provide you with options, so you can make informed decisions, ensure your priorities are recognized and met; then guide you through the real estate process and beyond.  Our purpose is for you to be so outrageously happy with our level of service that you gladly refer at least 2 people to us before the transaction is even over.

 Three months ago, we had the pleasure of helping Scott and Jessica purchase their dream home in the country.  When Scott called us, he let us know that they had stumbled upon their ideal dream home.  How could they afford to purchase a new home in the country before they even sold their own home?  First, we negotiated with the Seller to be their lender!  Scott and Jessica received the loan with awesome terms that made it affordable for them. Second, we wrote the offer, negotiated terms and closing date for everyone and sold their property and received full price.  It was a win/win/for all parties involved!

Our expertise is helping people in the community that would like to purchase or sell country properties. Since Ken and I live on a ranch in the Capay Valley we understand the details and challenges in to what it takes to get the job done.  It is much different from purchasing or selling a home in town.  Our experience, skills, and knowledge in the process, knowledge in zoning laws, and knowledge with unexpected issues that are associated with country properties are a great financial benefit to you.

During our initial consultation we will decide if we are going to work together. I have three roles. First, as your consultant I will ask you some thought-provoking questions, designed to uncover profound, insightful information about what's important to you. Experience shows that a skilled professional like myself will ask these thought provoking questions, because discovering what is truly important to you is really important to me.  I will listen vigilantly to all your answers.  I will then use this information to best serve your interest.  You will notice that these are questions that typical agents never take the risk to ask.

As your skill consultant, it's important that I lead you through the process of clarifying your goals. When your goals are clear, your decisions are easy, and you get good results.   When you confirm that I have heard and understood your goals-then and only then - will I craft a strategic plan, tailored to your needs, ensuring you get the best/best price for our home.

My second role is I'll also be your negotiator. Because representing yourself in a transaction is like performing surgery on yourself; it isn't going to work because you need a skilled professional.  If the end result is important to you, then you rely on an experienced person you trust and your respect.  And since money is an emotional issue, you'll need an objective and focused negotiator to ensure you get the best results.

 As your negotiator, I'll treat your money as if it were mine. When it's time to save or make you money, I am like a pit bull.  I'll relentlessly represent your interest.  What you will quickly notice during negotiations is that I  skillfully articulate the strengths and weaknesses of the suggestions other agents propose.   As a result you are aware that my negotiating skills alone are worth every penny that I earn. 


My third role is to oversee all the transactional details.  Every transaction has 100-150 phone calls alone, and each one of them is loaded with critical details.  There's a lot that can wrong.  Did you know that there are 43 different people from 14 different industries who get involved during the seven stages of your transaction?

As you can imagine, every "i" must be dotted and every "t" must be crossed. There are over 100 pieces of paper requiring at least 43 signatures and initials, and making a mistake can be very costly to you. So as you can imagine a lot can go wrong. 

From the heart, I want you to know that we are 100% committed to you both professionally and personally. Our goal is to help you develop your dreams, save the most money possible when you buy and sell your home, and to provide you with world-class service that is above and beyond your expectations. We want you to be so outrageously pleased and satisfied that you will be our advocates for life.  It's a great way to conduct business and you'll appreciate the difference.
