Kim has a positive “we’ll get this done” attitude!
My partner and I knew buying a home together would be stressful, and that part of that stress would be choosing the right real estate agent. Kim came highly recommended to us, and we cannot imagine going through this process with anyone else. Her wonderful personality and professionalism are exactly what we needed to make us feel comfortable and fully informed. We HIGHLY recommend her! In our first meeting with Kim, she patiently talked us through the process of buying a home, and everything that comes with it–how to choose lenders, thinking about contingencies, making an offer, city-specific requirements, and much more. She has an astounding breadth of knowledge, and she knows how to communicate it in a way that doesn’t feel overwhelming. Even more importantly, she listened to our needs and did not try to make decisions for us or rush us. Over and over, Kim helped us make tough decisions, even if it meant saying no to a house. For example, we found one home that we loved early on, but my partner was hesitant because of potential street-noise. Kim suggested that we meet at the house for a private showing midday during the week and just work there for a couple hours. Based on that experience, we decided the street noise was too much and the house was not right for us. We feel so lucky that our agent took the time to help us say no to the wrong house. When we found a house we loved, Kim helped us put together a strong offer that we felt comfortable with. Our offer was accepted despite it not being the highest dollar amount that the buyer received. We feel that Kim’s expertise tipped the scales in our favor. I am writing this in the living room of our new home that my partner and I both love. In summary, Kim is THE BEST! PS: Important side-note, we put our offer down right at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and closing escrow was not as predictable as normal to say the least. Kim’s positive “we’ll get this done” attitude and willingness to go out of her way for us helped us feel secure that we would be able to buy the home of our dreams, even in uncertain times.
