"Kim Alden is simply the best in the business. We have had the pleasure of working with Kim on the sale of our home and on the search for a new home. Kim worked hard to help us find the perfect community for the next chapter in our lives. She has been beside us every step of the way with professionalism, support, honesty and a sense of humor. We are grateful to Kim for her expertise, we can’t think of a time where Kim could not answer a question or find something new for us to consider. She has an extensive knowledge of the Chicagoland real estate market and a wonderful attitude which makes working with her a joy. We shared many laughs at showings with Kim and valued her always honest opinion. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Kim and highly recommend her to anyone looking to work with the best in the business."

★★★★★
"My wife and I interviewed several agents before selecting Kim. We are so glad we did! She is an accomplished, polished professional that knows the greater Barrington real estate market more than anyone we interviewed. Moreover, we found her to be a thoroughly delightful person with whom we really enjoyed working. Kim was always quick to respond to any question or request we had. We also found her the legal support team to be very helpful, knowledgable and reasonably priced. We sold our $545,000 home in Barrington this month (July) and are delighted we selected Kim as our agent." - Richard

★★★★★
"Before choosing Kim as my real estate agent I interviewed 3 others. Unlike the others, she gave small things we could do to help our home sell for more, faster. The listing price she suggested was 5% higher than the others. We sold our home in just 4 days and the final price was more than the other agents wanted us to start at. She always kept us informed on what to expect throughout the process and was easy to reach if we had questions. She exceeded my expectations in every category. Thanks Kim!" - Bryan

★★★★★
"Kim Alden brought a level of professionalism toward the sale of my home that was astounding! Her extraordinary responsiveness to our texts, phone calls (day and night) truly went above and beyond. Honestly, I can't imagine anyone as hard working as Kim. If you're looking for a class act to represent you in the sale of your home, look no further than Kim Alden. She will not disappoint!" - Marcia

★★★★★
"I have worked with Kim for years, both as a consultant and as a client. She is the most dedicated, hard-working, and intelligent realtor I have ever dealt with. She takes the time to get to know her clients and by the end she knows what we need better than we do ourselves. I frequently refer her to business acquaintances and friends who are looking for superior home buying or selling experience. Beyond Kim, her team is incredibly competent and does an amazing job." - Michael
