Kim was outstanding. She was on top of everything and always provided timely updates. She came in and helped with getting the house prepped to be sold and it was a smooth process. We got higher than our asking price and were very happy with the whole process. Kim went over the top to make sure we were happy and taken care of.Joe and Whitney Baxter
Kimberly is the best agent, period. She negotiated an offer for our house that was wildly above our highest expectations. She is honest, hardworking, affable, patient and encouraging. We’ve dealt with some other “high selling” agents in the area who are no where near Kim in terms of professionalism and results. Do yourself a favor and hire Kim.David and Malia Morris

Kim is helpful, organized, and a fantastic resource when it comes to navigating the real estate market. She answers all of our questions promptly and helps us sort out our action steps and what information is important. She is a strong advocate for our wishes and helped us receive an offer on our house that had everything we wanted.Sara
Kimberly is the absolute best! I cannot rave about her enough. She is personable, approachable, responds quickly, and ALWAYS tries her best to meet your real-estate needs. We became so close during our two listings with her (buying a house and then years later selling our house) that I now consider her a friend. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home to trust Kimberly. She will not let you down and you will sell your house/find the home of your dreams.House Seller
Kimberly has been my agent in three transactions in the last three years and I cannot say enough about her extensive experience, professionalism, and kindness. Her resourcefulness--even in the midst of COVID restrictions--was truly outstanding. She knows her business and her market better than any agent I have met and she is tireless in her commitment to provide excellent customer service that extends beyond the transaction at hand. Kimberly is also someone who is known for integrity, which is not as common as it should be in the world today. She is an awesome resource whether someone is just thinking about buying or selling or whether they are ready to do it.House Seller
