"We chose Kim Bankston to be our selling realtor because of her long time experience in the Paso Robles area. Patterson Reality and Kim have all the best tools to advertise your house and get buyers in to look. The photos for the virtual tour were especially good. We had multiple offers and had the house in escrow for above asking price. She helped guide us through all repairs and contingencies, and kept us calm when things didn't go smoothly. She went above and beyond at the end and helped us sell a washing machine that was a loose end, since we were leaving the state. Kim is a real professional and knows how to get the job done!"

"I was so impressed with Kim's energy and attention to detail. Guiding me through each step of the process, from negotiating the great sales price, to closing the deal so smoothly. I don’t take for granted any of her expertise. From helping to arrange the repairs needed in the pest inspection report and home inspection report, even picking up all the items I left behind, I can't thank her enough. She goes above and beyond what is expected from a real estate agent. I just wanted to say thank-you again, Kim, for everything you did to help me sell my house."

"Our entire buying experience with Kim was excellent! She's a real pro who quickly understands what you're looking for, does her homework and previews to optimize your time. Above all, once you've found your property, she doesn't just write the offer, she professionally manages the buying process to the finish. I would recommend Kim to anyone needing a Realtor."
"Kim, you have been the best and most professional real estate person I have ever had. You know how often I have moved, traveled and lived in different countries. I wish you could have been my agent in all those places. You are professional and kind, very knowledgeable, and give a 100% to a client. What I loved about the whole transaction is that you always worked with me and made me feel so very comfortable and in the know. What was also so important to me is that you listen. You have that gift and I am so grateful to that and all you have given of yourself."
"Deciding to sell our home was an emotional and difficult process. Kim understood and helped us through every step, resulting in a shorter time for the sale and a higher price than we expected. She helped us through the entire process of preparing our property for optimal sales value, oversaw the showings and helped us in any way she could! Anybody would be happy working with her! Kim is a professional in every aspect, and we were fortunate to originally purchase our home through Kim and have her sell it 13 years later. Definitely a success story for us!"

"Just a few months ago, Kim Bankston represented my interests in the sale of my home, in which I had resided for over 30 years. She kept me constantly advised of everything related to the sale. She maintained constant vigilance of all required documents to ensure their completeness and factual accuracy. Kim always responded quickly to my telephone calls and e-mails no matter the day of week or time of day. I believe that I could not have found a more capable, professional and/or imaginative relator. I truly cannot thank her enough!"
