Kay Bates took on a very challenging listing and worked the deal with absolute commitment and professionalism.

She sold the property faster than I would have expected and at great price. A very gifted real estate broker here.

Kay is an amazing real estate agent.

She didn't give us false promises, did what she said she could do (sell our house for top dollar), and kept us sane (as best she could) through a really complex sale. We recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house in San Diego and Riverside Counties!

Paula S

Just sold our cabin in Palomar Mountain today for greater than asking price.

You couldn’t tell this was Kay’s first listing in this unique market as we accepted an offer within a week of advertising. The Bates Realty Team is professional and efficient. In particular, Kay is authentic and selfless; someone you can trust. Her greatest attribute is listening to and understanding her clientele. You won’t find a better Broker / Agent than Kay.

"The BEST experience ever!! Kay guided us every step of the way. From reviewing documents with verbiage we didn't understand, to checking in if we had any questions along the way, big or small, day or night, Kay was always available. She was so warm and personable and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor. We were sad when the sale had closed and we wouldn't get to see her messages pop-up on our phones anymore. But she still managed to surprise us when our key's were delivered and they came with a personalized Bates Realty keychain that will forever be on our new home keys! A couple weeks later another surprise.. We couldn't have done this without Kay and her team and are forever thankful!Trust me, if you are looking to buy/sell a home, Kay is your go to!"

I operate my business in Virginia and i trusted Kay to successfully manage this beautiful piece of land in San Diego.She was a consumate professional in keeping me abreast of the sale of my property in a timely manner. I really enjoyed working with Kay because she was knowledgeable and was able to adapt to changing situation.I bought this vacant land in San Diego via an auction about three years ago. I decided to sell about a year and half later. I had to adjust the price based on changing market conditions. Kay was resilient in following through to get me the best deal available.I would recommend Kay as an astute real estate broker to anyone who is looking for results mixed with professionalism."

"Kay is an outstanding real estate agent! She was consistently prompt throughout the homebuying process. Kay has an encyclopedic knowledge of the housing market, particularly in San Diego, and was transparent with her communication. This was my first home purchase which brought about a great deal of anxiety. Kay was very patient and allowed me to explore all of my options. I am very happy with my first home purchase. The best part is paying the same amount in my monthly mortgage payments that I was paying in rent. I couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent. Thank you, Kay, for the anticipatory guidance, professionalism, great personality, and knowledge as I navigated through this important life chapter!"
