Whoever said that all real estate agents want is to "just close the deal!" has never met Kathy Bernal. A constant professional, Kathy guides her team with ethics, honesty and values, first and foremost. Kathy has been a top-producing agent in the Conejo Valley for over 24 years, and she has never once lost sight of the most important person in the home buying process: her client.
Through standard sale, foreclosures, and short sales, Kathy has helped clients sell and buy hundreds of homes. She is in the top 10% of all real estate agents in all of California, and in 2017 alone, she amassed over 23 million in sales. Nearly all her clients are referral-based, a true testament to her clients’ satisfaction. Her expertise and client-first attitude ensure that whoever works with Kathy will have a truly gratifying experience.
In her free time, Kathy enjoys watching sunsets at the beach, and she frequents Mammoth Mountain during ski season. But Kathy’s most important calling is her family: she loves spending time with her daughters, and Kathy spends as much time as she can with them.
As a small child, Samantha Bernal had already been to more open houses, new home developments, and home showings than most adults ever would. Samantha's mom is a real estate agent who instilled in Samantha a love of personal touches in the home and an interest in design that shaped her life and career. Samantha would spend hours imagining how she would decorate “her” room, if she were to move into a new house. This fascination came to serve her well in her career as a real estate agent, fostering an attention to detail that is unparalleled in real estate.
After working as a Guest Experience Manager and Sales Coordinator at the Four Seasons for over 4 years, Samantha took her customer service skills and applied them to real estate full-time. She prides herself in her empathy, which allows her to put herself in her buyers' and sellers' shoes to give them the best advice that is right for them. In her years in luxury real estate, she has learned the ins and out of the Conejo Valley, and she is truly an expert in her field.
When Samantha’s not working in real estate, she puts her degree in culinary arts into practice, cooking for friends and families whenever she gets the chance. She’s been in the equestrian world for 25 years, and Samantha spends free time hiking with her two dogs, Griffin and Brody.
