Kim is truly a master of the art. I came to her literally 24 hours before the deadline for offers and she got me into see the property and prepped the winning package very quickly. She advised me the right terms and price to get the property and pushed the mortgage broker and title company to get the closing done quickly. She was there for me every step of the way and I could not be happier with the place. She helped me change my life and I really appreciate it. -Jon Fast (via Zillow)
I found Kim by searching online. I wanted an experienced broker who was familiar with my mixed use neighborhood. As a seller I was concerned about getting the best reasonable price for my property. I found her to be articulate and warm hearted and also very intelligent. When my buyer became a bit difficult she proved to be an excellent negotiator and found a winning deal for both of us. Kim's flexibility and sincere approach was very useful for closing the deal. If I decide to buy or sell in California again she will be my first choice. She is effective and delightful to work with. -Carol (via YELP)
I first got to know Kim when she was one of the agents for a condo development that was going to market here in Jack London Square. I wasn't necessarily looking to pounce on a home purchase right that moment, but the price, location, floor plans, amenities, and overall timing were just right. What's more, Kim patiently addressed my endless questions and concerns about issues as varied as structural integrity, earthquake/liquefaction risk, neighborhood noise, area safety, and the history of the building site itself. Almost two years later, I'm still a happy homeowner in what's become a red-hot market here in Jack London Square. I credit Kim for making the whole buying process smooth, transparent, and stress-free. -Vincent L. (via YELP)
