A true local bay area girl, Kerry Vermeer has her roots deeply planted in bay area soil from day one and has been a community treasure ever since! Born and raised in Redwood City, she went to high school at Mercy in Burlingame and then moved to the Silicon Valley.  

Kerry is a mother, a small business woman and deeply committed community volunteer for years.  She has lived, worked, raised children and owned businesses in the Silicon Valley for over 30 years and deeply understands the neighborhoods and markets. She owned and operated Lappert’s Ice Cream and Coffee in the Rancho Shopping Center, Los Altos where she built many lasting relationships with her customers.  Kerry committed years of her life to being a foster parent for the County of Santa Clara. She fostered 7 special and beautiful children and is still very much involved in her foster children’s lives.

She has been married to Scott for over thirty years who recently retired as the Police and Fire Chief of Mountain View.  He now works in tech here in the valley. Their three children include two sons, Kyle and Grant, who both attended Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose and her daughter, Paige, who attended Castilleja in Palo Alto.  Kyle who attended school locally at Stanford is a software engineer at Facebook and is married to Kerry’s “mini-me” Alexandra, who is a rising star at Salesforce. Grant played division 1 basketball at the United States Naval Academy and graduated with a degree in cyber operations. He is now an Ensign in the United States Navy. Paige is a senior at Yale, interned at Apple and is contemplating law school. They all went from kindergarten to eighth grade at Saint Simon School in Los Altos. Her children inspire her to continue to serve others, especially her clients.Kerry has bought and sold homes and understands the concerns and pressures her clients are feeling in the frenetic bay area real estate process.

Kerry manages every part of the process to keep it as stress-free as possible. She equips her clients with a personalized step-by-step roadmap of how their goals will be achieved, providing peace of mind and confidence at every turn. She's committed to creating experiences that are both collaborative and personal for each client's needs. Kerry knows how to fight to get the best price – the price her clients deserve – in any transaction, whether they’re buying or selling.

The art of negotiation is a formidable skill that separates successful, professional Realtors from those who just sell houses. Another skill that no Realtor can do without today is the ability to utilize the newest technologies to effectively buy and sell homes; this is especially important in the local market. 

In helping people find the home of their dreams, Kerry uses the Multiple Listing Service as well as her personal, local well-connected network to uncover any and all off-market offerings. She is an expert at staging and even helping clients through the moving process.

Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home, you can put your trust in Kerry Vermeer, a life-long Silicon Valley resident who's eager to help you achieve your real estate dreams and protect your investment.
