Assistant Supertentient

Jack Kirk and his wife, Cathy Kirk were wonderful and very attentive to our needs as we searched for our forever home. We had specific needs and challenges in moving up North from Southern California.

Our search for a home, in an unfamiliar area, which can be a challenge in itself, seemed to be much easier. Jack and Cathy's website was a life saver. We were able to look at homes and areas we were interested in.

Being far away and with crazy schedules, they were able to show us homes when we were available. From November to December on weekends only, they drove us around and showed us homes until we decided on the perfect one.

Jack and Cathy helped us find financing and that was seamless and fast.

I am grateful for all their help in getting my forever home.

Jack is super great in helping our family list our home.

Not only he's professional but also very passionate and treat our family as someone he knew for a long time...

Jack's service was spectacular! He was with us every step of the way, always letting us know in advance what was going to happen next. He also saved us quite a bit of money with his knowledge of the market, and also the psychology and motivations of others.

I can't imagine going through this process again without Jack. He was really indispensable. He is also very easy to talk to, very friendly, and knows lots of tips and tricks (all legitimate, of course!) that saved us both time and money.

Even though I know he was very busy with other customers, I never felt that he was not giving me 100% of his time and attention. He is really on top of his game, and I highly recommend him and his services! View More Info at

Jack was amazing. He helped us get our house ready to sell by loading trucks, leaving his own refuse trailer at our house for us to use and even dumping it for us. He knows great workers to help with the things we couldn't do like re-landscaping our front at back yards at a very reasonable price. Our buyer had a very unreasonable and difficult agent and Jack maneuvered us thru this like a pro. He is a very nice and friendly man, he will get the job done and take very good care of you. I highly recommend him. View More Info at

Jack and company did a great job, stepping us through the initial setup of our home for sale. He made suggestions as to things to improve to make our home more salable. He kept us appraised every step of the way in the sale of our property from the establishment of a selling price, set up for show and open house and when a buyer was developed, what additional efforts might be needed to secure the deal. When issues developed with the property after we had moved out, Jack went above and beyond in insuring that the property was staged properly and any issues were resolved. I would recommend Jack Kirk Sr., for any future sales. View More Info at

Jack is a consummate professional who goes above and beyond the call of duty to help his clients. My client needed to sell his property while in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Jack is an amazing, fantastic, mind-shatteringly great realtor. I was referred to him by a friend who told me that I absolutely HAD to work with him, as my friend had worked with him in the past and thought Jack was the best. He was right.

Jack literally took care of everything. Every step of the way he had our backs, making sure we got exactly the place we wanted, in the condition we wanted, at the price we wanted. When I told him I didn't want to sell our current house, but rather turn it into a rental, he made that happen, from filing all the paperwork, to helping us secure the necessary loans, to even finding and vetting our tenants!

He actually took to apologizing for calling us during those evenings and weekends when there was work still to be done. was work being done on our behalf and he was the one doing it, and doing it well!

My wife and I love Jack and won't recommend or use any other realtor or property manager, as long as he's available.

I'm looking forward to inviting Jack to our housewarming party, as he and his wife have transcended a great working relationship and are now considered friends.

If you have the opportunity to work with Jack, take it! You won't regret it.

Senior Estimator - Cupertino Electric

Jack has been an excellent realtor that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Not only did he deliver ahead of schedule, he worked with me to make sure the house would stand out to those that were interested in seeing it. He always answers his phone, or will call you back as soon as he is able, something that not all people are very good at. At times when there was any anxiety, he would calmly reassure me that everything was fine, and that everything would work out. He seems to know just about everyone, and has a great reputation with those that I have come in contact with that know Jack. He always kept me informed of what was going on, even if it was something small. He sold us our house when we moved to California, and sold our house when we were ready to sell. I would definitely give him an A+++ rating for going above and beyond the call of duty as a friend and a realtor.

Buyers - Hollister, CA

We have just completed a purchase of a home in Hollister, CA. using Jack Kirk and his agency, Realty World. Starting with showing us several homes then helping us prepare an offer we found Jack to be very helpful and professional.

After our offer was accepted, we began the difficult task of securing financing through a conventional lender. Although we were well qualified we were both surprised and dismayed by the amount of documentation and the seemingly unnecessary information the lender required. Jack was especially helpful in dealing with the lender and guiding us through answering questions with inviting additional questions. He also counseled us to be patient and to continue the process. In the end the loan came through at the original committed date. We probably would not have obtained this loan without Jack’s help.

During the inspection period, we found some minor damage, which will require repairs to the 24 year-old home we purchased. Jack presented the sellers with a list of the repairs along with cost estimates and was able to negotiate a reduction in the purchase price to compensate for the costs we will incur.

The home closed on time and we are happily preparing to move in, thanks in large part to Jack’s tireless efforts and numerous phone calls with the lending agency and with the seller’s agent.

We strongly recommend Jack Kirk, along with Cathy and the rest of Realty World to help with house purchases.

Recently, I had occasion to work with Jack Kirk, Sr. in his capacity as a real estate broker in a highly contested matter--litigation between a number of co-owners of real property located in San Benito County. Mr. Kirk was the second real estate broker we engaged as the matter was that difficult and the property was unique with many details that required attention and consideration. Not only did Mr. Kirk work well with a group of people who could not come to any sort of agreements otherwise, he showed remarkable skill and professionalism when it came to marketing and selling the subject property. I would recommend Mr. Kirk for your real estate needs, especially to those attorneys out there looking for a client advocate in Partition actions. View More Info at

Jack helped us tremendously with the sale of our mother's property. It was an extremely contentious situation with some of us wanting to sell and others not. Jack kept his dealings with all of us on a civil, professional level although some in the family did not accord him the same courtesy. Through it all, Jack never lost his cool and kept on encouraging us to move on and not worry about the bumps in the road. He worked diligently with potential buyers and the actual buyer.

To whom it may concern,
I want to share with you the experience we had working with Jack Kirk Sr. as our real estate agent recently. Several years ago we started the process of looking for another home in the Hollister area. We called Jack and asked him for his advice and help. He immediately got us on track with our finances and sat down with us many times to understand are needs and concerns. Let’s just say this has not been an easy process for Jack waiting patiently as we searched the community for just the right home. Recently with the help of Jack and his wife, Cathy, we found the right home. Jack went above and beyond with the process of selling our home and purchasing our new one. He checked in daily and offered his help in moving, securing construction workers for our remodel, and giving us moral support. He was on top of all of the loan processing and did everything in a timely, professional manner. We were able to quickly move into our home and are now enjoying the fruits of his labor. We can’t say enough good about Jack and all he did to make our dream home a reality. We are so appreciative of him and highly recommend him as a broker, real estate agent and friend.

Jack is very thorough and went through inspection reports and disclosures with us in great detail. It was good to know that we could always go to him for guidance with things we weren't so sure about.

Also, my husband and I didn't have time to meet with him during the day, so many times our meetings with him would be during off-hours, and I really appreciate his going out of his way for us, especially because the property we purchased was pretty far away from his office.

Furthermore, he was able to get us funding when both my husband and I had just changed our jobs.

Two years ago I was considering selling my home, but was hesitant because the market was not doing so well. To make it worse, there was not much to turn around and purchase because the listings were minimal. A friend expressed her positive experience in buying a home with Jack Kirk and referred me to him. Not only did he sell my home, I got more than the asking price. I appreciated the fact that he listened to my concerns, did not give me the run around, answered my questions and explained things as the situation transpired. Taking all into account, with his determination and experience it paid off. Jack and Kathy Kirk went out of their way to make things happen for me and because of them I am now living in a home that “I love”, basically the home I was looking for.

I highly recommend Jack Kirk, Sr. as your real estate representative. He is very professional and knows the local Hollister market well. He guided us through what I believe is a difficult sale of our home. It was difficult in that the buyer kept coming back to us for give-backs and financial considerations, and then when we were escrow, the buyer requested escrow period be extended over a month so that the buyers can secure their loan. Patience was key and Jack worked it out with his counterpart for the buyers and we got a market price for our house. View More Info at
