"Kimi worked with us over a 2 year period with patience and grace. She helped guide us as new homebuyers and supported us as we traipsed through various overgrown properties together. We placed several offers in this crazy market until finally obtaining our home. Although, the closing process was a bit interesting due to it being a foreclosure. Kimi stayed right on top of everything to make sure we would not fall out of contract and even battled for us when we needed it. We are very happy with the outcome and are so appreciative we had someone like Kimi in our court. Thank you so much Kimi for all of your help and kindness throughout this experience." - Ashley Adams

"Working with Kimi has been the very best part of our home-buying process — she is beyond kind, knowledgeable, professional, and patient, especially with us as first-time home buyers in an extremely competitive market. We’re so incredibly grateful to have had Kimi’s gentle guidance through this process; we never felt pressured, and when she could sense that we were a bit overwhelmed or getting ahead of ourselves, she’d carefully offer wise perspective to help us feel balanced and informed in our decision-making. Consider yourself extremely lucky to have her in your corner!! We’re SO GLAD our friends recommended we reach out to you, Kimi!!!!" - Mary Beth G.
"Absolutely phenomenal person. Extensive knowledge of all things realty and then some. Kimi was available when we needed her and was very timely and considerate with her responses. She did an excellent job of getting to know our family and this helped us realize a wonderful home." - Chris Gallagher Medical Director, PA-C
"Kimi was great throughout the entire process of selling our home. She is very knowledgeable as a realtor. The beautiful photos and video of our home that she arranged to have done were stunning and, no doubt, contributed to our quick sale. Kimi was always accessible and quick to respond to our questions, and as first time home sellers, there were many. Not only was she accessible to us, she was accessible to potential buyers and made herself available to show our home on their schedules, not her's. As a result, we sold our house within a week of listing. She walked us through the whole process of selling our home, from listing to the closing of escrow. Once in escrow, she provided us with a timeline calendar of deadlines. I thought we would be the ones responsible for scheduling the various inspections and ordering of documents, but she handled everything. She is very professional and takes pride in how she represents us and our home sale. She had our best interest in mind throughout the whole process. I appreciate Kimi's hard work and dedication to selling our home and would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house." - Ralph and Cathy Mattis
"Kimi was amazing!!!! Always willing to answer questions right away, available for showings quickly, great communication and walked me thru all the steps as a first time home buyer. Would recommend her to any friends or family! The best!" - Morgan McCloskey
