Company History & Philosophy

Although The Kalish team was established in 1999, Pat and Jane Kalish have spent a lifetime perfecting the team concept.  “Taking Your Business Personally” is more than a fancy tag line; it’s the principal element of their business philosophy. 

Along with their core philosophy, they are guided by a set of values including:

Honesty – Resourcefulness – Compassion – Dependability – Communication

The Kalish Team strives every day to build an environment that serves as a strong foundation to their clients.  Morale and teamwork play a huge part in the success of any business.  Their spirit and willingness to help each other is a testament to their camaraderie and is an overwhelmingly positive influence in the office.  The goal of the Kalish Team is to create an enjoyable and satisfying experience for their clientele that produces the desired results.

The Kalish Team has the ability to adapt to any situation quickly and effectively which is a tremendous asset in an industry where no two days are the same.  The wide variety of buyer and seller requests requires the team to rely on their comprehensive knowledge and resourcefulness.  Understanding the needs of their clientele comes easy for The Kalish Team because they listen.

Never content with being average or good, the Kalish Team challenges themselves to excel.  They continue to develop and enhance operational systems which means no detail goes unattended.  The predictable result of this work ethic is the best customer service possible.

A significant portion of the team’s business comes from satisfied clientele referrals.  The Kalish Team earns these referrals by treating clients like family and providing superior, professional services.  Pat and Jane take tremendous pride in their referral business and count that as a great measure of their success.

Having a healthy work-life balance is important to the Kalish Team.  A constant member of the Intero President’s Circle & Intero Chairman’s Circle for their exceptional production, Pat and Jane make time to serve their community every year by being a top contributor companywide to the Intero Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to helping children in need, and as the primary underwriters for the series of free public concerts during the summer at Hidden Villa Ranch in Los Altos Hills.
