Sales Testimonials

Kandi, Adam and the team at Divine Properties are amazing. From help with loan pre-qualification to gifting us a post-sales house cleaning, Divine Properties went above and beyond. If you choose to work with Kandi – which I certainly recommend – you will not just get a random agent dabbling in real-estate. Rather, you get a whole team of cheerful, loving, and competent folks who are highly connected to all the related service providers (i.e. title agents, bank officers, inspectors, contractors, roofers – you name it). This proved valuable for us because we had a relatively complicated sale that involved a seller’s trust, a VA loan, 40 acres, three structures, and a $1,000,000 asking price – which Kandi helped reduce meaningfully. And she was able to guide us through all this even while separated by a nine-hour time difference, as I finished up my army service in Germany. Indeed, Divine Properties helped us find our dream home. And in the process we also found friends.”

I needed to sell my deceased mother’s estate and live about 850 miles away. Kandi and Divine Properties were recommended to me by my estate lawyer. Once on the job Kandi advised me what would be needed to get the estate in proper order. Everything I needed to do she advised me along the way and I was able to take care of from home. When the time of sale came up we managed to sell in only a few days and even reached a price that was what we had asked. Kandi and her team were there for me for the entire process and addressed them in a very timely manner. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her services for their prompt and professional services.”

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service Kandi and Kelly provided during the sale of my home. I have owned 5 different homes over the years and have never had such a smooth sales transaction with any of them until Divine Properties. I just retired after 24 years with the Calif. Dept. Of Corrections. We decided to place our home on the market in the middle of this COVID-19 Pandemic…..and hoped for the best. Not only did we sell our home in just a few days, we also received a full price offer. Kandi and Kelly went above and beyond to make this the most awesome home selling experience ever. One very important point about this team is that they set the bar high, they are kind, courteous and treat you like family. With their quality service, utmost professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market, I would highly recommend the team at Divine Properties………5 STARS !! ”

I have been looking for a home for about a year. Kandi has been outstanding and very patient with me that entire time. I have a large family and I had particular wants for my home purchase. That did not bother her or stop her search for what we wanted. She was very responsive to my insane amount of questions. Her professional relationships with lenders and contractors proved to be very helpful with my purchase. With Kandi’s help I had zero problem completing my inspections and getting the repairs desired inspection time and we closed escrow with ease. If you are contemplating purchasing I would highly recommend Kandi or Kat Spears as your agent. Both of them even helped me sell some items from my home to ease my move!!! Seriously, they go above and beyond 100% of the time. I was very lucky I found an agent who LOVED looking at properties and was patient and did not give up on me. I consider buying a home a massive financial investment and wanted to make sure the home was right for my family, Kandi understood and respected that. I will forever be grateful for her patients and kind inspirational words during that year. She always gave me hope and more than once was a shoulder for me to cry on.  If you are seeking someone dedicated to your happiness in a home call Divine Properties.

As a first time home buyer, I knew there were going to be unexpected challenges, but I ended up having one of the most difficult experiences of my life through no fault of my own.  I was so fortunate to have Kandi be my realtor because she really stepped up to the plate and was willing to do everything and anything to make my home purchase go through.  She is always so enthusiastic, encouraging, and extremely professional.  I’m not sure I would have been able to buy my house if I had another agent.  I could not recommend Kandi more! ”

For approximately 2 years we have been using Divine Properties (Residential & Commercial Real Estate and Property Management Company) to handle two properties we owned. One property was a residential home on acreage and the other a commercial building with one of the three tenants extremely difficult to work it. Divine Properties is a locally owned business active in the community here in the gold country of Amador County. Divine Properties handled the collection of rent, all repair needs and most importantly our eyes, ears and voice as needed for these properties. Because of their first hand knowledge of our properties they were able to list and sell the properties in a very short period of time. Working with Divine Properties allowed us to relax knowing that things were being handled by a friendly and professional group of people. Thanks again!! Our family will always be grateful for all the time and effort Kandi, Adam, Jaime & Kat put in and taking away the big headaches managing investment properties and selling real estate can bring.. You guys were a lifesaver!”

Rental Owner & Seller, Residential & Commercial Properties

My husband and I moved to Amador County and we were initially renting our home, but after a few months a circumstance happened where we were given the opportunity to purchase our home. After many months of hurdles and an emotional roller coaster with other real estate agents and lenders, our loan just didn’t go through. Even though my husband is a vet and we had good credit, it just wasn’t working. We met Kandi and Kat and they made us feel so at ease and assured us they could make this our home. They worked with a great lender, took care of all the paperwork, worked into the night to make sure they returned everything in a speedy manner, and they were always there to hear our concerns and give us the needed answers. They make you feel like family and we just can’t say enough great things about these wonderful ladies. I highly recommend working with divine property. Thanks Kat and kandi, always thankful!!!”

A. Pettingill – Jackson, CA
First Time Homebuyer

Kandi was fun to work with. She was very responsive when we needed her. She showed us many houses and helped us through three offers. We were actively looking for a house for about two years, and she smiled and worked with us the whole time. We finally found our dream home with Kandi’s help. We highly recommend Kandi. She always has a smile on her face and was always there when we needed her. She made buying a house in a very hard buyers market a fun adventure.”

Rod & Bailey Burton – Sutter Creek, CA
Buyers

Being a seller from outside the region, I can’t tell you how valuable it was to have a realtor like Kandi that was so knowledgeable, well-known and well-connected it the area. She was able to identify service people to make important upgrades to our property to be eligible for multiple types of financing and then, when last minute items popped up before the close of escrow she was able to call on her huge network of trades people to handle them very quickly. There are a million little details when selling a property and she paid attention to them all.”

Ces Murphy – Ione, CA
Seller

Kandi, I want to thank you for your incredible service to me while you were selling my home. You were referred to me after selling a home in my neighborhood for a surprisingly high price. And when we met I knew I was dealing with a Godly woman, which made you the perfect person for me. We prayed together over the rough times and you performed diligently when the sale stalled. You didn’t just sit by hoping for the best, you took the bull by the horns and pushed and prodded where necessary and kept me informed along the way. And even when the deal was done, documents signed, and monies dispersed you found that you had been over paid. You then contacted me immediately to let me know of the error and that you would return your check and be issued a lesser amount and that I would receive the corrected amount. That amount exceeded $900.00. Now that’s integrity at its best! The outcome was far better than we expected and I walked away with $30,000 more than I expected. Thank you so much and God Bless you!”

We were lucky to be gifted working with Kandi at Divine Properties! Our parents both passed and left us a home they paid cash for, but many hurdles came with it. Kandi helped us with each one. It was a long haul but with her help we made it to the finish line. My sister and I wish the new owners many happy times. It was an awesome home for all of us. Very big and when we came with family we all fit and loved it. Hoping they enjoy it as we did. Thanks Divine Properties and Kandi Thompson. We would recommend this company to anyone selling! Thank you!”

Kandi & Kat, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all you do in managing my rental property. From screening potential tenants to fixing needed repairs you guys are truly a one stop operations. Before I hired Divine Properties I was seriously considering selling the property. It had become a major headache. However I now plan on keeping the property for a very long time. You guys are truly awesome. I have had many rentals and used a lot of different property management companies and I can honestly say Divine Properties is far and beyond the best of the best! Thanks again for the awesome job.”

M. Othman – Sacramento, CA

Over several years we have engaged in couple of different management companies. Divine Properties has shown, hands down, why they are so highly regarded among real estate professionals in Amador county. We have been pleased and impressed by the breadth of knowledge of each person we have interacted with there. We have deeply appreciated the prompt communication, something we found sorely lacking at other management companies we’ve engaged. What impressed me most that they equally care about the tenants which results in happy tenants that want to stay put for long time and it is a win-win situation for everyone. Thank you Kandi, Kat and your staff for providing excellent service and keep up the good work. ”

S.Thakur – San Ramon, CA

Kandi and the team at Divine Properties are great. They helped us with our rental and then eventually sale of our ranch. We had a tough renter and they handled all the paperwork to help get them out. It was a lot of work on their part but they got the renters out without any effort on our part. I would highly recommend them for managing or selling a property. I will use them again if the need arises.”

M. Skully – Elk Grove, CA
Property Owner & Seller

Hire these people. The service they provide sets a really high bar. Way above what is considered the standard. They held my hand through every step of a lengthy difficult home repair process (after having the worst renter on record) having one stumbling block after another. They had endless patience and a solution to every problem. And there were a lot. You will not be disappointed!!”

J. McBride – Bay Area, CA

As a homeowner who lives out of the area, I rely on Divine Properties for every need that arises with my rental(s). I found it very challenging to find a property management company that was consistent and reliable until I discovered “my dream team”, Divine Properties! Kandi and Kat are not only extremely professional but they are the perfect mix of efficiency, attention to detail and a absolute joy to work with.

I highly recommend Divine Properties for all your property management needs.”

K. Wuslich – Bay Area, CA

Over the past two years, I have had an exceptional experience work with Divine Properties. Their attention to detail, responsiveness to the renters and responsiveness to me as the property owner have been excellent. The service they offer is absolutely worth the price. As a result, I have peace of mind about the management of my property. Thank you, Divine Properties!”

M. Hooper – Fair Pines, CA

Kandi and her team have done great for us. Divine Properties keeps on top of not only problems but is aware of all aspects of real estate that is managed and controlled. We would recommend Kandi and her team to anyone considering buying, selling, or leasing of any type of property.”

N. DeRoy – Hollister, CA
Property Owner

I was lucky enough to purchase a home all by myself 5 years ago and able to live in it for a couple years before having to move in with my sister to help us both out through some troubled times. I decided to rent my house out privately for just what I paid a month so it was a great deal for someone looking. I soon regretted that decision. Upon trying to get these people out of my home after non-payment of rent, what I found inside devastated me, my home was destroyed and although it may have been nothing to them, it was to me as I did not collect enough security deposit to cover the repairs. So out of pocket was all I had. It was a slow process but with the help of my sister and a dear friend, we powered through. I was again looking for renters privately because a management company I thought wasn’t in my budget. After seeing my stress over FaceBook my friends from school, Kandi and Kat decided to come take a look at my home and see what we could do. There were tears and hugs and ultimately I made the best decision for my son and I and we have never looked back. Divine Properties has been working with me and my home finding good renters and making it as seamless as possible. I don’t worry about my home anymore. All I want is something to leave my son when I’m gone and people to respect my home. I can’t thank Kandi and Kat enough for leaving me free to worry about my son and my recent health issues instead of my home.”

A. Rodriguez – San Andreas, CA
Property Owner

Kandi is so professional at Property Management and Sales. She has rented out our investment properties with renters that we were very happy with! Kandi has also sold our rental properties when the time was right. We followed her advice when it was time to sell and got the best value the market would bare. Kandi has been trustworthy, professional, and efficient in helping us in our rental/sales needs! We thank her so much for her help!”

G & S  Broyles – Jackson, CA
Property Owners / Sales Clients

A year and half ago I was referred to Kandi to look into managing our family rental properties. Reluctantly, I met with her as the thought of giving up control was more overwhelming than actually taking care of the properties. Little did I know that this would be the complete opposite reality. Our initial meeting put me at great ease. Once I realized what would be taken care of and how a HUGE load of stress was going to be removed from my weekly and monthly responsibilities, I was ready to begin our partnership. Additionally, I must add that we are from out of the area, so the thought of not having to make trips up to Amador County for turnovers, maintenance issues, and so on and so on, was tremendously helpful. But more than that, the professionalism and responsiveness, and hand holding through the transition of management was seamless. YES, SEAMLESS. I was walked through all aspects of changes and I can confidently say that within a very short transition time, our rental properties were being managed without any of my input. I would highly recommend Divine Properties as they take care of our family investment as if the property was their own. That is PEACE of MIND and a blessing that we are truly grateful for.”

J. Jett

I loved Divine Properties!!  From the very 1st time I met Jamie and Kandi I felt that they would put us in a house we would enjoy.  They were always welcoming and friendly. Whenever I made appointments there was never an issue, they always found time for us.  They found us a lovely rental and we enjoyed it for 2 1/2 years.  Inspections were always quick and easy and love being able to pay online.  When things needed repair they worked with our schedules to get the job done.  I would definitely use Divine properties again.”
