Farless Real Estate helped me through a very difficult time in my life. They were extremely responsive, helpful, knowledgeable, quick, appropriately aggressive and resourceful.

We cannot recommend Farless Real Estate Group highly enough. Katherine and Richard are true professionals. Our experience with them from start to finish in selling our house was seamless. They gave us "spot on" advice in how to prepare our house for sale. Once our house was ready, our property sold within days of listing at an excellent price. They really helped to take the stress out of what is often a very stressful experience. They are knowledgeable, highly competent and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Thank you, Kat and Richard for a job well done!

-The Richmond Family
Roseville, Stoneridge Sellers 2016
Rich & Kat Farless were known for selling homes thru out Rocklin and for having a great reputation. I personally knew multiple homes they sold in Whitney Oaks and they sold my friend’s house over the appraised value in Rocklin Highlands. Being that I live in Hawaii, I needed someone that could help me transition from my renter moving out to going on the market as fast as possible and have it look great for top dollar. They delivered! My renter moved out Sunday and they were able to get everything prepared and ready to market on mls that Thursday. We price it higher than the last solds and got an offer over asking price within 3 days. I have sold many homes and they truly made this the smoothest transaction I’ve had. If you’re looking for a real estate team that really cares but has the knowledge, experience and track record too, then I highly recommend Rich & Kat Farless.
- Lake Family
Whitney Oaks, Seller 2016

- Hernandez Family,
Lincoln Buyer 2016
Kat and Richard were amazing to work with from the moment we first sat down with them.

We interviewed multiple brokers and chose Katherine and Richard as they appeared to have both the track record and passion required to achieve the best results. Since we live in Southern California, Katherine & Richard also handled all repairs and property management related aspects on our behalf. They were both very responsive and proactive during the process and ultimately achieved the maximum possible value for the house. We highly recommend them for anyone considering selling a property in Roseville/Rocklin area.

Katherine and Richard have the experience and know how to get the job done. They competitively priced our home resulting in over 25 viewings and 7 offers in two days. Our home sold for $30,000 over the listed price. Their professional approach and clear communication through escrow made the process stress free.
-Allison and David Dailey
Roseville, Seller 2016
Katherine and Rich Farless were excellent from the first meeting I had with them to the end of escrow. Beyond the myriad of current media products to advertise my property, they brought respect and an enormous amount of patience in helping me sell my house. They are experts in what they do to get houses listed and sold and, they're experts in their respective selling region. They really know their product! I felt that, regardless of my delays, they were always ready to answer all my questions and deal immediately with my concerns. I highly recommend the Farless group and intend to use them in procuring my new house. Thanks Kat and Rich!
Roseville, Stoneridge Seller 2016
Katherine and Richard Farless are an amazing team. I would not have tried to sell my Roseville home without them. They are truly specialist in the Stoneridge area, as they have sold many homes around my house. They are knowledgeable about all the documents that need to be signed and Kat and Rich even made it a pleasure and not boring at all. I don't plan to move again soon; but if I do, I would call Kat and Richard immediately. Sharron Dean, formerly of Roseville, CA, now of Fresno, CA.
Roseville, Stoneridge Seller 2016
Thank you very much for selling our home. Your macro knowledge of the overall California real estate market and your micro knowledge of our stone ridge community of Roseville was very instrumental towards having several purchase offers for our home by others after the summer peak season had ended.
Your skills and specialized local marketing abilities had enabled you to remove any and all obstacles quickly for us to close during this holiday season. Thank you again for keeping in the highest standards. Have a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
-The Cunningham Family
Roseville, Stoneridge Sellers 2015
Everything went very smoothly and very professional! They got our house sold in less than a week with only one open house. Rich and Kat were very helpful with the transaction! They helped us through everything and all the paperwork. Especially at the very end helping with all the different repairs that had to be done. They helped by getting different venders we could work with and set up appointments for us. It was great! We didn’t have to worry about anything!

Roseville Stoneridge Seller - 2015
I am glad I chose Katherine and Richard Farless to sell my home. I was moving in a month and needed a real pro to handle matters and get a quick result. They have a proven track record of sales in the Roseville/Rocklin area and an exquisite sense of this specific market. As consummate professionals, they explained the entire process to us in detail, walked and talked us through every aspect (and sometimes multiple times for our needs) and were always available for a question be it through text, email, telephone or in person. Their style is very calming and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in this area. In short, I am very happy with their process and outcome.
Roseville, Stoneridge Seller 2015
Katherine and Richard,
Thank you for all of your efforts in selling our home during a very difficult time. Your assistance in preparing our home for the market, staging advice, pricing it competitively, negotiating multiple offers to sell above our listing price, and working diligently to have our escrow close 1 week before it was scheduled was amazing! You were always available and eager to find solutions when problems arose, often finding solutions before we even knew about the issue. If I sell or buy in the future, I will be a return customer. The Farless team is a professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and resourceful couple to work with and I would highly recommend their services to friends and family.
Rocklin Southside Ranch Seller 2015
When our landlord told us that we had 60 days to move, we knew that we were going to have to work fast to be able to find and buy a home in that time. When we asked friends for realtor recommendations we were flooded with referrals. We knew that we wanted to purchase in the Stoneridge neighborhood and always saw the Farless for sale signs and open house signs. Knowing that time was imperative and confident that the Farless Group knew the Roseville area and specifically the Stoneridge area, we chose them. They were able to find the perfect house for us that they were getting ready to list and 30 days later we are now proud homeowners. We were very pleased with the Farless group; I would use them again in the future and recommend them to others. I never knew that purchasing a house could be so stress-free!

“We wanted to let our Whitney Oaks neighbors know that we sold our home and purchased a home in Whitney Oaks with the help & services of our Realtors Rich and Kat Farless. Over the holidays is not a time when most people buy and sell a homes, but because we purchased our home through them in the past, we knew that they would be laser focused on helping us with our goals and could get past any challenges. They worked very hard for us and always looked out for our best interests. We were very happy with our decision so much so, that we want to recommend their services to anyone thinking of purchasing or selling their home.”

“I know we drove Katherine and Richard crazy. We changed our requirements several times, adjusting lot size, price range and location. Team Farless stuck with us through the entire process, never losing their patience, and always ready to show us properties of interest. They always responded in a timely manner to our requests, and never left us without answer.
The Farless’ have an excellent grasp on market conditions, and they know how to negotiate great deals. When we finally decided on a home, Katherine put together a fantastic deal for us. I would highly recommend their services to anyone!”

“We had been looking for a home for a year, with an agent that wasn't doing much to help us. We finally got fed up, and decided to find a team with the hopes that they would be more responsive. When we first met Richard and Katherine at an open house, they made an impression on us. We decided to give them a shot at finding us a house, but we were losing hope, since we were looking in one small neighborhood and we had very specific criteria. Katherine and Richard went right to work, and in a few months, had found us a house. Not only did they find us a house, we got to look at the house and we had our offer in before it was listed! Thanks to Richard and Katherine's hard work, we found a great house and we didn't get into a bidding war. I can't recommend them enough!”

“We have been looking for a house for almost a year on and off. Katherine and Richard were really patient with us, at times I would get tired and disappointed but they kept telling us that they would find the right house for us. We just closed this past Friday, it was a short sale and at some points very hard for us but Katherine and Richard made it very easy. They truly did not want to just sell us a house they wanted what is best for us. Looking for a new house is sometimes very stressful but I truly enjoyed the whole process with them. I will never ever go with another agent, definitely recommend them. 2011 we closed. I have recently bought another house and again great experience, Richard manage to get the house $20.000 under the asking price which is pretty amazing in this market! We closed Feb. 3 2013”
-Mohammad & Hanna Fatemi

Roseville Buyers - 2013
“We listed our house as a short sale and Katherine and Richard did a great job of following up with us, the buyers and their agent, and especially with the bank in order to close before the New Year on our Short Sale. In addition their marketing of the property we believe is top notch; they don't just list the property, they contact other realtors and potential buyers and find you a buyer. We will buy another house with the Farless Group the next time we purchase!”
—Peter & India Graf
Roseville Stoneridge Sellers 2012
“First, I would like to say that it takes a lot to get me to write a review-good or bad, but I feel that I need to relay the positive experiences that I have had with Katherine and Richard of The Farless group.
Katherine was involved over 10 years ago in our purchase of our first home. A few years later, we called her to be our Realtor in the sale of that home. She was an extreme professional and a pleasure to work with,
We called on her again when financial trouble hit our country and us as individuals. We were in need of short selling the home we had purchased only 5 years earlier. This time however, things wouldn't be smooth as the mortgage company wanted to play hardball and make it very difficult for our home to be sold. Katherine was persistent with the mortgage company, stayed the course and followed through until the end when a deal was finally worked out.
I must say that I have also called her and asked for her advice regarding real estate and mortgage issues and she and Richard have always been helpful above and beyond what I feel is there call of duty.
Like I mentioned before, it takes a lot for me to write a review, but here it is and I give my recommendation 100% to Katherine and Richard of The Farless Group. I know that you will get the results you are looking for when you choose them to be your representatives.”

Roseville Stoneridge Buyer - 2012
I would recommend Katherine & Richard Farless. We are not the easy clients by any means. Richard communicated with us and met every demand we put on him. He was there 24/7 to answer all of our questions. The entire process was very smooth. Bought the property and love it! Thanks Richard”
—David & Guru-Niyam Seyl
East Roseville Buyer - 2012
“I’ve worked with Katherine and Richard Farless in the past, and I am thrilled to be working with them again. I’ve met realtors that give you that “used car salesman vibe” but working with Katherine and Richard are the exact opposite of that. It’s refreshing how honest, real, responsive and knowledgeable they are. Katherine know that I have an abnormal schedule, so she works around that and uses modern technology to make the process easier for me. I trust Katherine. Trust is and important quality in a realtor”
Rocklin Yankee Estates Buyer – 2012
“Both Katherine and Richard went above and beyond their duty as realtors. While attempting to purchase my home, inefficiency by the bank resulted in frequent holdups and delays, however these two tirelessly worked in order to hasten the process. Not only that, they never tried to hurry us into raising the amount of money we paid for the house, rather they helped us secure the best deal, even though their commission was dependent upon the sale price of the property in question. In short, the Farless are honest, dependable and hardworking; a team of highly competent individuals who work while maintaining a humane aspect with the sole purpose of placing their clients first.”
—Shahid & Saima Khan
Granite Bay Buyers -2012

—John & Kristie Lecas
Roseville Buyers - 2011
“Katherine and Richard did an excellent job in helping us find a home and pushing it through the short sale process. Katherine and Richard didn’t waste our time showing s homes that we didn’t want to see; they knew what we’re looking for and that’s what they showed us. If a house came on the market that fit what we were looking for, they showed us that house on the day it came on the market-without fail. They were also quick to point out a home’s shortcomings. We looked at a couple of homes that we liked but they pointed out what might be poor features of those homes-they just didn’t want to sell us a house, they wanted us to find a house that we would be happy in and would work for us. We purchased a short sale that had fallen out of escrow with three previous buyers; Katherine knew how to work the short sale system and complete the process where other agents failed. We would highly recommend Katherine and Richard Farless.”
—Mike & Cindy McGuire
East Roseville Buyers - 2011
Katherine and Richard Farless worked tirelessly on finding us a home that would meet our strict standards and tight budget. They probably showed us over 35 homes making sure we were able to meet with them at a convenient time in three different counties. I would highly recommend Katherine and Richard who know the market/pricing well with no hesitation they area a dynamic duo”.
—James & Nina Kreps
Roseville Buyers - 2011

Their marketing works. We were very impressed how they negotiated and had the bank and the buyer working together to come to an agreement. We were able to concentrate on our lives knowing they were on top of all the details and paperwork and we never had problems getting a hold of them- they were always available. They were committed to selling our home & sold it in only 63 days during tough current market conditions.”
—Rick & Leah Solorio

After helping us they also worked with my parents, finding them the perfect retirement home in Roseville. They work well as a team and provided us and my parents with excellent service.”
Pollok Pines Buyer - 2011
“I purchased a home in a New Home Community in West Sacramento. Having Katherine represent me instead of the builder was a great decision. She was able to negotiate a better price and get me more upgrades than what they were offering. She also helped me with a lender. I was having difficulty with the builders preferred lender and while Katherine was taking a day off out of town, she contacted another lender that gave me a better loan. Thanks to Katherine & The Farless Group, I got the best deal possible for my new home!”

Lincoln Buyer - 2010
“Katherine sold my house 3 years ago as a short sale, when they were still relatively uncommon, and she did a great job. She enlisted the help of another agent who had more experience in short sales, and between the two of them, the sale went well. Recently, three years after the sale. I received a letter from IRS in regards to the sale of that house and upon contacting Katherine, she was very responsive and helpful in quickly getting the information I needed.
I would highly recommend her as a find, responsive, professional agent, who really cares about her clients, wants to go above and beyond, and doesn’t stop after the sales is over”
Rocklin Seller - 2009

Roseville Stoneridege Buyers – 2009
“Katherine Farless was our realtor and she did a great job! We purchased our home during a competitive REO/Bank Owned Home market. Homes were going so fast the Listing Agents wouldn’t even bother putting up a picture. Katherine knew what we were looking for. She previewed the home for us and then called for us to view it. At first we were not too crazy about looking at the house because there were no pictures but so thrilled we did! She really prepared us ahead of time by getting pre-approved for a loan & went the extra mile to make sure we not only got an accepted offer before anyone else got their offer in but got it accepted lower than the asking price when everyone else was over bidding to get their offers accepted. Then she got the bank to make repairs too!! We were happy to have someone experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive- it’s the main reason we are in the home that we love.”
