Client Testimonials



★★★★★

"Kim did a fantastic job showing us properties that we were interested in. Before meeting us at a property, she always did tons of research and created a dialog with the seller’s agent to gather even more information. We didn’t know what/where we wanted, so she was patient with us until we figured it out. When we were ready to make an offer, she was there every step of the way to make sure that everything was properly written up and presented. During escrow she continued to do more research and provide additional information about the property and the surrounding area that was very helpful. There were some unusual aspects (easements, liens, etc.) to the property that she made sure that we were not only fully aware of but understood them. I would highly recommend Kim and would use her again myself." - Cole S.


★★★★★

"I had the pleasure of working with Kim a few years ago. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and went out of her way to give me all of the information I needed. She was patient and offered excellent advice about the things I needed to do to update my home to get top dollar and a quick sale. I would absolutely use her in the future for all of my real estate needs." - Elaine F.


★★★★★

"Most importantly about Kim is that she listens to your needs. She weeds out all the things that I don't want and really focuses my attention on what's important. She's quick to respond to a call or an email and always follows up in a timely matter. Recommend Kim without hesitation." - Jon S.


★★★★★

"Kim did an excellent job listing and selling my home. She came prepared with a professional marketing plan which generated a lot of interest in my property as soon as it was listed. She held 2 open houses, complete with French music, to complement my decor. My home was sold within 3 weeks at top dollar. I worked with Kim again when I was searching in Napa and Solano Counties for my next home where she looked daily for listings and took me to see dozens of properties. She found my forever home and negotiated successfully in spite of multiple offers. Kim is very detail oriented, patient, and devoted to her clients. She listens and sticks to client’s wish lists. She is an excellent agent for selling or finding the perfect home." - Beverly C.

"Kim was a wealth of knowledge and exceptional when it came to the whole sales process. She guided us from beginning to end and made everything really simple. Anytime I wanted info she got it to me within hours!! We really wanted this house and with her help we bought it within 5 days of it being listed!!!!" - Davide C.

★★★★★

"Kim is wonderfully professional and enthusiastic! I wanted to put in a bid on a condo in Yountville. She gave me comps, sliced and diced many ways to help me with me bid. The bid was submitted the next day. Unfortunately, I, embarrassingly, asked her to withdraw it the following day. She was extremely professional and courteous about it. I would use her in a heart beat if I’m in the market again. But since I’m not right now, I’m referring her to all of you!" - Babs C.

★★★★★

"Our family relocated from Texas to California. Two very different markets! We met with about five different realtors but ended up choosing Kim because... she was the best. She always had time to show us houses no matter where they were. She answered all our questions with the utmost honesty and knowledge. Sent us great spreadsheets about the areas and neighborhoods we were looking at. If we needed a roofer to look at a house for us, she found us one. Anything we needed she was there. And she isn’t pushy and sales-y, but she knows her stuff! She definitely made our relocation to California easy!" - Happy Buyer
