This 1904 historic craftsman has been lovingly maintained and updated, and is a South Pasadena treasure. Beautiful terraced grounds with pool, spa, pool/guest house, with mature trees and foliage. In 2010 a dream kitchen was designed by Pasadena architect, Doug Ewing, with an abundance of light, granite counters, sunny breakfast room, opening to the family room. The public rooms are large with gracious boxed ceilings, wide mouldings, and a flow to the outdoors that conjures up bygone social parties. The library is conveniently located for a home-office. There are four bedrooms upstairs, each with French doors to a balcony. There is an additional sitting room, plus a very generous walk-in closet in the master. There is a 1000-bottle temperature controlled wine cellar. A most gracious home with all the updating of electrical, plumbing and recent air conditioning. A most discriminating property for those looking to embrace the past elegance of the Arts and Crafts era, but appreciating all the amenities of an updated home. A pleasure to view.

This is a biography page.

You clicked over here to read about me.

My name is Kyle Kessenich. You’re going to read about my life and experience. I’m supposed to tell you why I’m the right real estate agent for the job. I’m supposed to throw in interesting details about myself to be memorable. I love to go bowling and I’m secretly terrified of jellyfish. But does any of that really matter? I can tell you all about my certifications and expertise. But here’s the truth: there are several real estate agents in this area that could help you. Why should you ask for me?

This page is a biography page, but to tell my story I really need to tell your story. You’re on a real estate website for a Los Angeles County agent. This means that you’re about to make a big transition in your life. I want to congratulate you. This is exciting and can be overwhelming. You are making a smart choice to use an agent.

Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of not having an agent. Sometimes people believe that they can handle this whole process by themselves. Technically they can. After all, they can find listings, take virtual tours and explore neighborhoods and school systems. They can meet people in local groups through social media. They can even check out the street on google maps. They have more tools in their hands than the best agents in the world had 10 years ago. So it’s tempting to ask: “Do I need or even want a real estate agent?” To that I ask: This is a complicated process, do you really want to go through it alone?

No one would form a business entity without a lawyer. No one would ride a Boeing 747 without a licensed pilot and no one would connect a new bathroom into the public sewer system without a master plumber. Like we said, you’re smart. You’ve decided to go with an expert. Real estate agents are these experts, but not all agents are the same.

Real estate is more than just a job for me. Buying or selling your home will probably be the biggest financial decision you make. It needs to be a good experience that you will never regret.

Call me and I will be by your side the whole way. I will make sure everything is under control so you can relax and enjoy this exciting step.

I want you to have the best real estate experience possible!

How can I help you sell your home? (Visit www.kylekessenich.com)

You’re selling your home. These walls and floors are more than square footage and design features. Each of the features that we will point out through the listing process, were built through your life. The rooms will forever hold your memories. So when it’s time to sell, you need an agent to ensure that it goes to someone who will appreciate it as much as you did. You don’t want some buyer to come along and lowball you. You shouldn’t have to deal with that. I can help you with everything from organizing to staging and open houses to community mixers. Together we will attract the perfect person who will fit well into the community and understand what your house is worth. When a listing is done correctly, the buyers can see themselves living in the house. This will lead to getting more for your house because that’s what it’s really worth. I have all the tools to appropriately value a home so that it sells quickly and for the best price possible.

How can I help you buy your home? (Visit www.isellpasadena.com)

When you ask for me to help you, it becomes personal. I keep working until you’re in the right home, at the right price, with a smile on your face. Do you know that comfortable feeling you get when you’re home? Helping you find that feeling is why I’m an agent. I will work around the clock and cut through all the red tape. I will walk with you every step of the way. I will be with you through offers, contracts and financing. I will be with you through inspections, addendums and negotiations. I don’t disappear when the papers are signed. If you have questions in a week, I will be there. If you have questions in ten years, I will be there. I am very happy to do everything it takes so that you can smile and feel at home.

I believe that everyone should have a chance to have that feeling. Someone gave me that chance when I was ten years old. Until that point I lived in a children’s home in South Korea. The people who took care of me are wonderful and I am forever grateful for them. But I never felt that peace of being home. A home is more than a place to live. A home is a refuge. It’s a place of security and comfort where you can see your future in front of you.

By ten years old, I had given up hope of ever being adopted. Then my miracle happened. I was adopted. Much like real estate, adoption is a legal process and involves a lot of paperwork and red tape, but experts helped through the whole process. I moved to California and finally felt at home.
