★★★★★
"We worked with Kim and her team on the sale of a home and she was excellent in every way. Professional. Communicative. HONEST. Focused. Determined. Completely on top of her game. And, she's just a lovely person which in many ways, makes all the difference. Our transaction was particularly difficult Kim really helped navigate the situation-- both logistically and emotionally. We cannot recommend her more highly." - Stacy B.

★★★★★
"Kim helped us purchase a very special property on the Bermuda Lagoon. Although we weren't officially 'looking', Kim knew that we were entertaining the idea of moving close to the water. She kept us in mind for close to a year until the situation was right for us. " - Liz & Charlie

★★★★★
"Kim is the consummate professional; knowledgeable, experienced, prepared and sincere. From beginning to end, and every step along the way, she was responsive and creative in addressing issues and answering questions. Kim sold our house and found the perfect solution for an older couple downsizing. We consider ourselves fortunate to have worked with Kim and would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor." - Avonne & Myles S.

★★★★★
"Kim was amazing to work with! Her knowledge of the neighborhood, market and buying process made our first time purchase experience seamless. We would highly recommend Kim and are grateful to her for helping us find our home." - Danielle & Matt

★★★★★
"Kim is an incredible agent. As first time homebuyers, my husband and I were pretty clueless. We had an idea of what we wanted, but were also constantly changing our minds. Kim seemed to really get us from the start and point us in the right direction. She is extremely knowledgeable, and on our long, protracted search, I noticed she knew A LOT more than most of the other agents showing the homes.

When we first embarked on this process, we didn’t fully understand or appreciate the value that a real estate agent could add. After working with Kim, we realized how valuable an extraordinary agent can be. She knows what questions to ask at showings, many things we would have never have thought of. She was also extremely honest - we were getting a little desperate toward the end of our search, but Kim would be straight with us if she felt the home wasn't right for our needs. She never tried to convince us to get something that wouldn't work. It truly felt like a team approach.

When we finally found our dream home, Kim's guidance was invaluable. We had to give a best and final offer on a very competitive home. Kim did the research and gave us her honest opinion, including much appreciated hard numbers, and never tried to push us over our limits. And we got the house over 10 other offers! Beyond actually obtaining our home, Kim was integral thoughout the closing process, giving us her input and advice during inspection, navigating the mortgage and legal components, and even helping us find a mover!

Personality wise, Kim is so lovely and nice to be around. She is extremely approachable and easy to work with. If you are looking for a home in the Weston/Westport/Wilton/Fairfield area, I can't imagine an agent in the area better than Kim. Thanks for helping us find our dream home!"
- Ashley & Teddy

"We had an incredible experience working with Kim. She was intelligent, thorough, knowledgable, and extremely responsive as we were first looking for homes. She is a sharp and keen observer both of the market and the homes themselves, as well as what you need and want as a buyer. She was so helpful (and honest) in thinking through every pro and con and helping us find and secure our dream property. Throughout the purchase process she was on it every step of the way. Her recommendations for all the various vendors were fabulous -- she knows good people because she is good people. What can normally be a very difficult process was remarkably smooth with Kim. We are so happy with our home and our purchase experience. I could not recommend her more highly!" - Olivia M.

★★★★★
"Kim sold our home in record time! She is passionate about her clients and is enthusiastic and highly motivated. My family left Westport and she put our mind at ease knowing she’d manage our sale effortlessly and she did just that despite a difficult winter! Kim was more than a realtor to us. Working with Kim is like working with a friend. I can not recommend her highly enough!!" - Gabrielle H.

★★★★★
