Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Littleton, CO.
Kim made this the best house buying experience EVER! Her and her team make you feel right at home. If there are ever any issues or questions, she's on it! She helped us arrange everything and even went as far as to personally setting up and dropping off the radon test for us! She is like super woman!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Littleton, CO.
There is no other Real Estate Broker that could EVER make this process easier.
I am a former investor that literally did not trust Real Estate Agents....Kim DeGrande
is the exception to the rule! Call her and I promise...she will not only save you time and a lot of aggravation, she will most of all save you money!!! I feel fortunate that I was able to find her. Do yourself a favor and call her NOW!
My husband and I just purchased our first home in Roxborough, CO. Kim was extremely helpful and patient. She helped us to understand the process along the way and recommended a wonderful lender and home inspector to make the process painless. She knows everything about the areas we viewed homes in and helped us to make the best decision for our family. We HIGHLY recommend Kim to anyone looking for an agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Highlands Ranch, CO.
Kim is by far the most professional, the most responsive real estate agent I have ever dealt with. She is extremely personable, and gets the job done. She knows everything about the Denver Metro area and can guide you to your perfect home!! Our sellers only accepted our bid based on her reputation as being easy to work with!! I couldn't say enough great things about her. She is on time, returns calls and emails immediately and takes you to the homes that you describe as your dream home. Please choose her as your agent today....she won't disappoint!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Lakewood, CO.
We were looking for a property that had good bones but needed some work, so that we could get it for a decent price and remodel it to our liking. Kim found the perfect property. She is great at understanding your needs and does not waste your time with properties that don't fit the bill. There were some issues that came up with the inspection, and Kim helped us resolve them by negotiating very effectively with the seller's agent. She knows the market, the realtors and the areas extremely well, which helps make the purchase process smooth and worry-free for the buyer.
Kim took my house on at a very difficult time (early 2011) but stuck with it through tough times and few interested parties. She successfully sold it for me in March 2012. I had relocated (corporate) in May 2011 and Kim stayed in touch routinely to apprise me of status. When I did receive an offer and had to make a few minor repairs, Kim was on hand promptly to coordinate with service people. Kim also has a great deal of local knowledge/expertise in the Roxborough Park area of Littleton (and surrounding areas). For those of you looking for a unique property in that area, I recommend you start with Kim. Kim was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to contract with her again.
Kim is the utmost professional in her business! She knows Roxborough! She takes the time to establish a rapport with her clients and allows them to become comfortable and obtain confidence in the process. Our journey was a very frustrating one in selling our home in Roxborough and trying to downsize and buy another. It took over a year and was difficult at times. It was a down time in the market but Kim was there every step of the way with us and she fought for us as well. I am happy to say things turned out positively and we will be forever grateful to Kim for that! We highly recommend Kim for any real estate needs and we now consider her a friend! She's the best!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Littleton, CO.
Kim was wonderful to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable about Roxborough Park & is active in many of the activities there. I always felt like she wanted to provide the best services for us, wanted to sell the house at a fair price & was always respectful to us. She's a real pro!
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Blakeland, CO 80125
I simply asked Kim for a quick home value estimate a few months ago.
She knows our home from prior showing experience so was able to send an immediate reply as to her estimate of its current value. We did not list with Kim -- or anyone else -- but we were very impressed with her responsiveness. She knows our area very well.
VERY unresponsive! My husband and I would contact Kim with questions about local homes that we were very interested in, and it would sometimes take her days to reply to us. With the housing market in Denver being very competitive, this lead to some stressful moments for us.
Also, when requesting to look at multiple houses, I felt that Kim would focus her time and energy on the houses that were on the most expensive end of our price range. Houses that were for sale by owner were not followed up on her end.
If you are looking for someone to assist you with buying a new home, and you depend on timely answers, you may want to check out other realtors. The lack of responsiveness was very disappointing, and it only added to our stress during an already challenging time.
