Ratings & Reviews

We insisted on listing our home for a substantially higher price than what we knew the appraisal would come back at. We were certain that ours was a 'one of a kind' and that the appraisers wouldn't be able to find any true comps. Kim did a great job premarketing, and the house went into escrow five days after the first open house and closed thirty days later. Kim sold our house at a price significantly above our asking. At every point throughout the process Kim kept us apprised of all the transitions and benchmarks as each was achieved. Kim is thouroughly knowledgable regarding the Real Estate field and a complete professional. Looking back, we're very glad we chose Kim and would recommend her to friends and family alike.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $850K in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.

From our very first conversation with Kim, she took time to understand our needs for a future home. Once we had decided on a particular community, she pointed us to neighborhoods with potential for what we were looking for. On actual outings, she was upfront and frank about any shortcomings which displayed that she had our best interests in mind. Overall, we could not have asked for anything more from our real estate agent. Kim is very responsive, excellent at communicating, outstanding at negotiating and possesses detailed knowledge of everything real estate related. Above all, she always kept our best interest in mind and ahead of everything else and never pressured us into making any decision we were not comfortable with. We will definitely be calling on her services again for future real estate transactions.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $775K in Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA.

Most pro-active agent I've ever worked with! She walked us through every step of the selling process and even helped us with setting up final close after we left town.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.

We just moved to San Diego and after 3 short months, we fell in love with it and were ready to buy. The first agent we had was unprofessional, and ended up wasting a lot of our time. One of our friends recommended Kim and the experience was so much better.

Kim is professional, honest and friendly. Her office is beautiful.

She spent 10 long months with us, looking at home after home. Even for open houses, where we could easily go ourselves, Kim still went with us so she could chat on our likes and dislikes, helping her fine tune the next home selections.

In the end we were able to settle into the perfect place that meets our current needs.

Along the entire process, and even after the home is sold, Kim has continued to be there for every little question we had.

The other night I couldn't figure out how to open a sliding glass door. I texted Kim, and within 2 minutes she had it figured out for us.

We completely trust Kim now for all our real estate needs, and when we're ready to sell this home or purchase another, there's nobody else we would use besides Kim!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Escondido, CA.

I could not be more enthusiastic about my experience with Kim Tran as my realtor. She helped us buy our first home in 2009 and acted like we were her only customers. We got daily emails with houses to check out, always picked up the phone or got back to us promptly, and took us to look at more places than I can count. And we were only in the market for a townhouse around $200k. She acted like we were buying a million dollar home, it was incredible. Her level of attention, personal care and tenacity is just astounding.

When we decided we wanted to buy a new home and sell our townhouse, we had her handle the sale and purchase. We had some issues with our buyer, but Kim handled everything, kept in touch with us constantly and answered every question we had. I literally cannot say enough how incredibly positive our experience with Kim has been. We've referred her to multiple friends who have all been equally satisfied. Anytime I hear anyone is thinking about buying a house I basically force them to call her and get offended if they use a different realtor. I call her "Kim the Wonder Realtor" because she's basically a super hero.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Escondido, CA.

We recently sold our home and purchased a new one. Kim had originally helped us buy our old home, so we didn't hesitate to call her up again. Kim provides excellent service and really puts in maximum effort for her clients. She is always available and ready with an answer. We have recommended Kim to several friends who ended up purchasing through her, and all have been extremely happy with her service.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.

Kim made our house sale a wonderful experience. She was wonderful with the tenants in our house, I never had to worry about anything. We had our first offer 3 days after she listed the house and there wasn't a single issue from beginning to end. I trust her 100% - she is amazing.

Helped me rent a home in Midway District, San Diego, CA 92101.

I needed to find an apartment for my 19 year old going to school in downtown San Diego. I knew NOTHING about the area, except there were a lot of condos and different neighborhoods. THANK GOD I found Kim. Kim knew the area like the back of her hand. She found out what I was looking for and didn't show me ANYTHING outside of those parameters. She saved me hours and hours of time and negotiated a great contract. My daughter is in a perfect place for her (and me, I won't be worrying about her safety), can walk to school, shops, grocery shopping. If you want a take-care-of-business, no-nonsense, get-the-job-done realtor, call Kim!

Bought a home in 2014 in Paularino, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

Kim has done an amazing job in assisting me with finding and purchasing my first home. I was very pleased and impressed with all the efforts she has taken in finding the perfect home that fits our preferences. She knew exactly what I was looking for in a home. She has provided endless amounts of information and assistance as well as quick with her responses. She is very knowledgable and familiar with the area. Very easy to get a hold of and very friendly. She is very patient and always has a smile on her face. Really great to work with. I highly recommend Kim as a realtor.
