Kerri puts a huge emphasis on her expertise and knowledge of the market which has led her to expand on her real estate education. She obtained her broker’s license in 2007 which is the highest level of real estate licensure the state provides. Kerri has also gone several steps further by earning the following designations: Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI). These designations required education classes that exceeded the state’s requirements and some even required high levels of production in order to be awarded. In short, all of this means you’re getting a professional real estate agent who has the experience and professionalism to guide you through any real estate transaction.
Kerri has a passion for San Antonio and has deep family roots here dating back to the Republic of Texas even though she grew up in Los Angeles, California. Her family has lived in San Antonio’s Alamo Heights area for years watching it evolve from a suburb into an inner-city neighborhood. This background gives her insight into native Texan characteristics while her experiences living outside of Texas help her relate to buyers moving into the area.
Kerri enjoys volunteering in the community and is involved with the PTO at Howard Early Childhood Center & Cambridge Elementary, the Junior League, the Witte Museum and Delta Delta Delta alumni group. Kerri’s pride and joy, however, is her family. Her husband is an attorney at Zachry Industrial. Both are graduates of Texas A&M University in College Station and proud Fightin’ Texas Aggies. They are also involved with their church, Alamo Heights United Methodist. Together they are raising three beautifully strong willed children: a son who is 7 years old, a daughter who is 6 years old and a second daughter who is 4 years old. They live in their Olmos Park home with their 2 dogs and 65 lb. tortoise. When she is not placing a SOLD sign in a yard, you can find Kerri enjoying her family, studying her genealogy or enjoying a good book.

Take the time to search and trust your gut. I believe everything happens for a reason, so if you’re running into a lot of obstacles then you may be hitting a legitimate road block that is there for a reason. Also, your gut will tell you things about a house or a transaction, and I think your gut feeling is oftentimes right.
Hire a professional, like myself, who will tell you the truth. You should not hire someone who wants to inflate the price of your home, because statistics show you typically net less when you do that. Your agent should show you real sales data and use that information to price your home accurately. This results in less time on the market, fewer headaches with strangers coming into your home, and an overall easier experience.
Small town feel
I can read people really well, and I set realistic expectations. Paying attention to the details of what people are saying helps me determine what motivates them, which in turn is useful during negotiations.By breaking down my clients' options, educating them with facts, and then giving them the different scenarios that could occur, they are always well informed and prepared.
I make my clients happy, and get to come home to spend quality time with my family.
We have been in our new home for a month now and we are so happy! My husband and I are so thankful that Kerri was our realtor!! Kerri navigated us through our fist home purchase in 2009 and guided us through our first home sale this year. Kerri was always professional and responsive, provided solid guidance and honest feedback, and supported our decisions throughout the selling and buying processes. Kerri's priority was to help us find the right home for our growing family and a home we would love for years to come. Simply stated, she delivered!!

We had THE BEST experience buying & selling our home with Kerri! To say that she is ON TOP of things is a huge understatement. She's professional, a smart negotiator & ahead of the game. We had a contract on our home in five days...with multiple offers! You will not be disappointed in having her on your side to buy and/or sell your home. She went above & beyond for us & we are so very grateful!

Kerri has been our real estate broker for the purchasing and/ or selling of five houses. She helped make each experience easy and stress free. Even though Kerri is a good friend, her professionalism, knowledge, and honesty is why we continue to have her represent us. I truly recommend calling Kerri to list your home or help you find your next one. You will definitely be in good hands.

Kerri helped us sell our house in record time. Throughout each and every step of the process she kept us apprised of every single detail. She is trustworthy, confident, and such a pleasure to do business with. Hands down the best real estate agent in town!

There is never an "ideal" time to sell a house - especially not when there are work obligations separating your family, a high risk pregnancy, a toddler, and a market that isn't in your favor. Our family knew all those variables would require a hands-on, detail-oriented, shoot-it-straight realtor that would be there steering the process and being on point. We interviewed 5 realtors and ultimately settled on Kerri Kothmann Watford Hoermann to sell our #AlamoHeights condo. From then on, we never "settled." She was upfront with the positives and negatives of our home. While hard to hear, it was her upfront business savvy that helped take the emotion part out of negotiating and we were well aware of what our selling process could look like. Because of Kerri's marketing plan, honesty about our home, and market knowledge to appropriately price our home, we were under contract OVER asking in exactly a week. She kept a stressed out momma in the loop throughout showings and put in the legwork during the option period and title process to ensure that we closed on time and was open about where those "bumps" in the process can happen. She kept us on track and, we feel, is the only one that could have sold our home as quickly as she did with as minimal bumps as possible. We walked away feeling like she was always on "our team" and would be an asset to any "team" looking to buy or sell in #SanAntonio. She is even helping us find a "team" in our new city states away!!! She really does want you to #LoveWhereYaLive. Thank you Kerri for all your help!!! #realtor #KuperSothebys #SanAntoniorealtor
