Client Testimonials
★★★★★
" I first met Kim as a neighbor, 10+ years ago. And, when it came time to sell our home, I knew that her knowledge and experience would make her the ideal agent to help me. And that she did, along every stage, from preparing the house for sale, to negotiation for the best price, to cleaning up all those last minute unexpected things that could potentially derail the sale. Kim is a trusted agent, with proven success whether your house is a starter home or multi-million dollar estate. I highly recommend Kim and her partner Mollie, they are an incredible team that you can trust. "

★★★★★
"When my wife and I first met Kim in 2010 she was the selling agent for the home we purchased when we were relocating to Laguna. We enjoyed working with her so when we were ready to look for our ocean front home there was no question who we would call to have her find our current home and sell our other home. If we ever move we will use her again."

★★★★★
"We have worked with Kim Walker for several years and she has always been the ultimate professional. She is smart, diligent, and honest throughout every aspect of a real estate transaction. Kim has demonstrated the ability and experience that's required in the real estate market to meet our needs and wants, as well as negotiate on our behalf to get the best deal! We recommend Kim Walker without hesitation because she is prepared and committed to get the best results possible! "

401 Avocado Ave | Sold for $35 Million

Steeped in history, the landmark “Blue House” surveys all of the activity in the world’s most picturesque pleasure harbor. In the 1930’s, this specific parcel was culled from the extensive holdings of the area’s largest ranch to become the site of a family home overlooking the newly christened harbor. A 200’ private drive leads to the motor court. The main house sits at the peak elevation and is complemented by a guest building, service quarters, an indoor pool, and a regulation lighted tennis court. Built as an homage to the grand winter retreats of Bermuda, the modest residence is graceful and undisturbed. Surrounded by broad lawns and expansive gardens, the property exudes an enduring ambiance of relaxed privacy as was originally created here decades ago.
