I was extremely impressed with Keith when he helped me sell my property. Keith’s responsiveness and comprehensive knowledge of the real estate industry made me feel like I was always in good hands. What I was most impressed about with Keith was his willingness to provide feedback and knowledge even after the sale was complete. Keith’s willingness to go above and beyond in the process was so impressive that I would certainly use him in the future.

Keith Kyle helped me to purchase a home in the Golden Hills Redondo Beach and did a wonderful job. I was out of state for the majority of the process and Keith did all the leg work for me. It was really like having a trusted friend there in person on my behalf. He is extremely professional and has an in depth knowledge of the area. In this market it really helps to have a realtor that is well know locally and has a great reputation for doing business the right way because the seller will take your offer more seriously. Thank You Keith.

Keith Kyle was our realtor. We were first time home buyers and naturally very nervous about the process. We came across Keith online and reached out to him. From the first time speaking with him through getting keys to our new home, Keith was professional, courteous and sincere. He guided us through the entire process and made us feel comfortable and confident through our decisions. In an extremely competitive market he came up with a solution that worked for us and we eventually bought the home of our dreams!

Keith was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I are extremely busy professionals and Keith made the purchasing of our condo easy and painless. He went above and beyond what you would expect from a broker. Keith is easy going, calm and yet on the ball and returns calls, texts and emails quickly. He is sharp, professional and has your best interest in mind. I would not hesitate referring him to any one.

Keith went above and beyond my expectations selling my duplex rental house in Torrance, CA. A professional realtor who understands the proper balance and nuances of selling a house. Starting from his initial evaluation of my property, through painting/prep, inspections, open house, and closing. Even more impressive I never even stepped foot back in the state of California. All paperwork was handled through DocuSign, he was always available via text, email, or phone. He handled everything, including dealing with my tenants on what seemed like a daily basis . He never overloaded me tasks, always presenting me with a series of small hurdles that I could handle, each one at a time. Selling a house is normally like climbing a mountain, Keith made the process more like a jog through the park.

In our opinion, Keith is “one of a kind” when it comes to a service provider/broker. This was our first experience selling a single-family resident and we could not have done it without Keith’s involvement. The overall process was like a roller coaster ride and very emotional at times but Keith was able to pull it through at the end. What impressed me most about Keith was that he consistently placed our priority over his and thus did not take any rash or selfish action when few opportunities did exist. As a fellow professional in a similar field, I would define Keith as a “TRUE PROFESSIONAL”. In short, some of Keith’s strongest attributes are: a) Very honest in terms of responding to your questions (i.e. price and demand expectations, input on the potential buyer, etc.); b) Tactful in dealing with issues with other brokers and vendors; c) Responds to questions/issues raised by the client on a timely basis; d) Very strong understanding about the market; e) Technically strong and thus able to answer questions raised by the client and others; f) Patient and maintains his composure at all times; g) Timely update on the sales and closing process and thus managed our expectation; h) Always available, 24-7, to respond to issues and questions; i) Unselfish and fully committed to his client EVEN IF the sale appeared to be unlikely at times; j) Continue to be proactively involved even after the sale. Without any hesitation, I would recommend anyone attempting to buy or sell or even seeking advice on a real estate investment to seek Mr. Keith Kyle’s assistance at Vista Sotheby’s International Realty. He is a true professional real estate broker, friendly and honest and most important of all very easy to work with.

Keith handled my purchase/transaction from beginning to end. He is very familiar with the South Bay area real estate and a true professional. Integrity, responsiveness, attention to detail and great communication are just a few areas that made him one of the best Real Estate representatives I have had the pleasure of working with and representing my family. He worked diligently with me over a lengthy period of time to find us the right property that totally fit our needs. Keith was not only great in all these areas but also very attentive after the closing to make sure that everything was as we expected. Tremendous work ethic and attentive so there were no surprises and we were always in the “know” all the way.
Bill – Zillow Review 1/2016 – Bought a home in Fusion South Bay
Keith Kyle is an exceptional realtor. He is professional, honest and ethical. He is also incredibly knowledgable of South Bay Real Estate and has written numerous articles. When I first started looking for a home I met with at least 10 realtors, all referrals. What a waste of time and energy. Some steered me to places that were real dumps- located next to a trailer park or with a view of the parking lot. Some wanted me to sign a contract to work exclusively with them and became enraged when I wouldn’t sign anything. Keith is not like that at all. He puts his client’s needs first. He is more interested in helping people find the right home at a reasonable price rather than making a big commission. He is also very calm which is important because buying a home can be very stressful. I chose Keith as my realtor because I was impressed by the articles he had written, the five star reviews he received, and his personality. Keith is a good guy and I trust him 100%. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a realtor.
Teri – Zillow Review 12/2015 – Bought a condo in Redondo Beach
Keith truly was a gift from God for us! We were in the market for around 4 months and things were not great with our current agent(s). We had a mother/daughter team that was a referral from an acquaintance. They were not very aggressive when it came to putting in offers and we caught them in several fibs where they dropped the ball during negotiations. Needless to say we felt like we lost a few homes and potential opportunities working with them. They also LOVED every house that we walked into, even if it did not fit our requirements. This was one of the biggest issues we had. We wanted a “trusted advisor”, not a used car salesperson! When we first started looking I was calling around talking to different agents and ran into Keith. He had a “pocket listing” that fit into our requirements. He set up a time for us to see the house with him later that week. The next day our current agent called us and told us about the same house. When I explained it to Keith he told us to just go with our agent & harbored no resentment. His integrity and understanding was very impressive. He even called us a few weeks later with another off-market property. It wasn’t exactly what we were looking for, but that fact he called us after we basically stood him up on the first property spoke volumes. Decision made, we called up Keith and asked him to be our new agent. Throughout the next several months Keith showed us many houses and we put in a few bids (tough market). He was great at answering all of our questions and coaching us through every step of the process. He presented the bad along with the good where we didn’t always see it. We ended up finding a house we loved but slightly out of our price range. It was a unique situation because the owner was relocating and had to be out by a certain time. Keith stayed on it and when the first offer fell out we were right there to step into the top spot. Through some amazing self-sacrifice on his part and stick-to-itiveness, we got the home of our dreams! I feel very confident that you will not find a better agent anywhere in the South Bay or a better person to do business with! Thank you again Keith, we appreciate everything you have done for us!
Jay & Doreen – Zillow Review 12/2015 – Bought a home in Redondo Beach
I utilized Keith Kyle to both sell my home and buy a new home. Let me first tell you about selling our home. I had initially found Keith Kyle as I was interested in a home he had listed for sale. After speaking with him on the phone and after a number of email correspondences, the home he had listed that I was originally wanted not going to work out for me (in terms of price). We discussed listing my house during these phone calls and emails, however, I had told him that I had already found an agent that I was going to list my house with, but thanked him for his time. In the weeks prior to listing my home, Keith kept in touch with me giving me pointers on what I could do and what to be weary of (even though he knew he didn’t have my business as I was listing with someone else). He invested time to teach me about the process and what to look out for. The night before we were going to sign with another agent, my wife and I discussed and decided to change our mind and sign with Keith. He made us feel comfortable and spent the time with us. After listing with Keith, he spent a great deal of time walking us through the process, took great pictures with a professional photographer, helped us stage the house and asked about my 2 year old sons schedule. This was important to us as he wanted to make sure we were not inconvenienced in any way (e.g. son’s nap time, picking up and dropping off to school, etc.). In addition, he wasn’t shy about listing our house higher than we initially thought we would get. Once the house was listed, our house had a an offer at FULL PRICE. We were also able to close with 45 days and the buyer side needed some real help, which Keith provided to them (in lieu of their own agent) to make sure the deal went through and was timely.With respect to buying a new home, Keith helped us out every step of the way. He helped us get into properties to see after normal business hours give my wife’s and my schedules were hectic. We saw over 25+ homes in our search and not one time did I ever feel he was frustrated with us or not willing to invest him time. We finally found our dream home in a dream location, however, the backyard needed some work. Keith had contractors come and give us estimates to get the backyard in good shape, which we were able to price into our offer. Even before we made the offer, Keith made sure to double and triple check we were completely satisfied as this is a lifelong decision. In addition, the house we were buying was being sold by a relocation company that didn’t “budge” on anything. Keith helped us negotiate with them on credits/fixes and even gave up some of his commission to make us completely satisfied to bridge the gap. We moved in two weeks ago, and even to this day, Keith follows up with us to make sure everything is good.I have already recommended Keith to many friends and colleagues when they are ready to buy and sell. When I look back at my experience over the past few months, I feel like my wife and I made the best personal and financial decision to list with Keith Kyle!!”

“Had a good experience with Keith finding a home in Northwest Torrance, CA. He was recommended to us by two separate friends who both bought homes in the South Bay with Keith as their agent. Very knowledgeable of different neighborhoods throughout the South Bay and Long Beach – especially finding a good neighborhood for your budget. Compared to other realtors I have dealt with, Keith is very low-key and low-pressure, which for us was good. If you have ever dealt with the opposite – the high-pressure, cheese salesman – you know what I mean. It was a breath of fresh air to have someone who was easy going about the process. Very responsive with email or text.”

My family and I relocated from Chicago to Redondo Beach.We were fortunate enough to to choose Keith Kyle randomly from the internet.He went far and above what I would expect from a realtor.He was helpful, patient, prepared and thorough.In the end we ended up buying a house we just love two blocks from the beach.As we lived in another city, Keith was helpful enough to meet our inspector, coordinate repairs, and new carpet installation, and make sure we were ready to move in upon arrival.I highly recommend Keith to anyone looking for an exceptional Realtor
Joe F – Google Review 2/5/15 – Bought a home in Redondo Beach, CA
“Keith Kyle is the best realtor we’ve ever had! We used him to sell our house in Torrance and to purchase another updated home. Keith was so very patient with us, never pushed and was always available (to show us homes, answer questions, etc.). He probably worked with us for almost a year and we are really pleased with the outcomes. To top it all off, Keith managed sell our house for more than our asking price and also without having any open houses! How great was that?Keith is also really nice and honest. It’s been 2 1/2 years since we’ve moved, but he still keeps in touch and we now consider him a “friend” more than a “realtor.”
Chris H – Google Review 6/1/15 – Home Buyer and Seller in Torrance, CA
I highly recommend realtor Keith Kyle if you are considering a short sale. He is knowledgeable about the process, patient and steadfast. During a very difficult time for me, with the economy declining, Keith delivered exceptionally well and took care of all the details of the short sale. He is a true professional!
Yonnie P – Zillow Review 4/9/2015 – Sold a home in Torrance CA
“My husband and I are so grateful to have had Keith as our Realtor when we bought our home in Hermosa Beach. Keith is both a professional and a genuinely nice guy. He knows the beach cities inside out, and can answer questions with knowledge and enthusiasm because he lives and works here (and clearly loves living and working here.) Keith helped us find a super home in a great location, and graciously helped us navigate the usual stresses of buying a home. He also went above and beyond after the sale by being a good neighbor and helping us feel welcome in our new community. We are so appreciative of all of Keith’s hard work on our behalf — and we love our new home!”

“I recently relocated to So Cal. My old broker from out of state recommended a friend. What a train wreck this guy was… My wife then called a number of realtors and out of all of them really liked Keith’s attitude and knowledge. I spoke to him on the phone and explained what we were looking for. He was very open minded and gave options on all of our wants. When we decide on our house, he was there giving great advise on our offer. Once the owners accepted, thats when he really went to work for us. He was very dedicated to making sure that othing slipped on any deadlines. Even it was on the weekend or late at night. All I can say it was a great experience especially moving from out of state, to find a great honest realtor. Five stars!!!”
Steve & Amy – Redondo Beach
“I’ve bought and sold three homes in my life, and this was by far the best experience I’ve had. Keith is incredibly knowledgeable, not only of South Bay real estate, but of the micro markets within each city. We just sold our home in east Manhattan Beach, and he really understood the value of our home, and was able to price & market it just right. We went into escrow within the first week and closed quickly. Buying and selling a home can be an intense and emotional roller coaster ride, but Keith really kept his cool and stayed focused on the big picture throughout the entire process. Not only is he smart and seasoned, but he’s a very nice person as well. If you are buying or selling in the South Bay, Keith Kyle would be an amazing asset to have on your team. Highly recommended.”

“Keith really really really knows his stuff! We’re first time home buyers, and we’re so glad we decided to go with Keith. He was there with us every step of the way, guiding us, patiently answering our million questions, and being totally honest and up front. He was never pushy, was very willing to listen to our needs, and work with our schedules. I can’t remember the number of time’s I called Keith past 10pm on weeknights, and he’d always be there!Keith is our go-to-guy for all things real-estate! Thanks again, Keith for really making our home buying process smooth, pain-free and informative.”

Keith Kyle was an absolute pleasure to work with. As a first time homebuyer I came in with plenty of questions and concerns, and Keith was there every step of the way. His professionalism and ability to handle things as they came up were exceptional. Even when on vacation he was able to keep in contact with me; therefore, going above and beyond as far as I’m concerned. Ultimately, I was able to find a great condo in Torrance, and I couldn’t be any happier.I’m glad I lucked out by having Keith as my agent and would gladly recommend him to anybody who is in the housing market.Thanks again Keith!

“Keith was fantastic, patient and honest. When he showed me a house he showed me both the good and bad. I didn’t feel like he was just trying to show me the most expensive thing he could find. He really wanted to find something that fit me and trust me that was no easy task.

Keith was an excellent realtor and a huge asset as we sought out our first home purchase. He explained the process very clearly, he was extremely patient with us, and even took it in stride when we got cold feet on our first home offer / purchase process experience. He helped us regain our confidence, assisted in searching in a broader region, and we are now the happy owner of a great first home!!I would happily & highly recommend Keith to anyone looking for a realtor!

Keith Kyle was a joy to work with. I can’t speak highly enough of his attention to detail, communication, and professionalism. Keith represented me on my first home purchase and made sure that the process went as smooth as possible. He even went as far as to notify me of the home I ended up buying while he was on vacation with his family and helped walk me through the final steps while he was on vacation again (lucky guy!). He made sure that no balls were dropped and had his co-worker, Richard, there to help with the final touches.
I recommend choosing Keith for any of your South Bay buying or selling needs and would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family, let alone strangers over the internet.
Peter – (Yelp Review) Bought a home in Hollyglen, CA
Keith is and was absolutely wonderful. He helped us in finding the right home and then he helped us selling it also when the market was right. My wife and I were extremely impressed how he went way out of his way to accommodate us and always made us feel better. It is not an easy thing buying and selling one’s home but Keith made it enjoyable. He knows the market and what buyers want and boy does he know how to sell a home. It gives me great pleasure to write this review and to recommend Keith to anyone who is either buying or selling property.
Andy- Highly likely to recommend (Zillow Review 10/02/2013) Sold a Townhouse home in 2012 in Redondo Beach, CA.
We were first-time homebuyers and Keith was fantastic.We chose him after interviewing a few other agents. He’s easy to talk to and most importantly, he listens to you. While anybody can find listings online, Keith did a good job looking for houses that fit our desires and budget. We didn’t know the neighborhoods very well, but he showed us safe, family-friendly areas. Keith also gave us good advice on houses we found online. He once checked out a listing himself and found major structural issues. It saved us from wasting our time looking at duds. He also tries his best to find potential listings before they list publicly. Once we offered on our home in Torrance, he stayed very responsive and would check in with us consistently (but not annoyingly at all). He informed us of every step and made sure we considered all different types of inspections. It was very apparent that he stayed in contact consistently with the seller’s agent. Keith negotiated closing cost credit, repairs, and more credits after the repairs. Needless to say, the money we saved helped us have some savings after closing escrow. Keith also helped us close escrow sooner and motivated the seller to make repairs in order to close the deal. In the end, we bought a beautiful home that was listed over our budget, but sold under our budget limit!
For first-timers, we thought it was to be a lot tougher. Sure, we did a lot on our part, like lining up our home loan early and efficiently, but having Keith and his knowledgable service kept us confident and assured in the process.”

Keith was a pleasure to work with through the entire process. He was great for a first-time buyer and explained everything I needed to know and indulged my curiosity when I wanted to know more of the details. He was very responsive and flexible with scheduling- he was always there to answer emails and the process was perfect for me as a busy professional with little time to spend driving around town.I know who I’m calling in the future for anything in the South Bay.
