Ratings & Reviews

Kim is extremely professional and helpful. When purchasing my condo, I really felt like she was in my corner, helping me with everything from the walk through and paperwork, to being genuinely happy for me when escrow closed. When I recently went through the unfortunate process of having to short sell my condo, Kim explained every step and was extremely thorough in getting me paperwork ahead of time and coordinating with all parties. She was also available for my questions at all times. I highly recommend Kim for purchasing and selling.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA.

Kim was referred to us by a friend. When we talked to her for the first time on the phone I knew we had a good realtor. She showed us homes in all of the areas we were intestered in. She opened our eyes to a new area, Rancho Penasquitos. We found a home instantly. We put an offer in the same day and it was accepted. We now live in a wonderful neighbor where we are very happy. We couldn't have done it without Kim and her knowledge of these areas. We would highly recommend her as your realtor!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Grant Hill, San Diego, CA.

Kim is amazing to work with and I can’t even begin to tell you all the reasons why she is the best agent we have ever worked with. We have bought a couple houses over the years and worked with several different agents and after working with Kim once we will only use her. We have recommend her to all our friends and family who have all been equally impressed. She is extremely organized and will always get back to you right away on any email/call or text that you send and she checks in to give you status updates on the progress all the time. Once you go into escrow she creates a timeline so you know when you need to have everything done by and when the estimated closing date will be. She is very professional and clearly has a strong understanding of the industry and how to best approach both buying or selling a home. Other agents respect her and respond well to her and she definitely takes good care of you ensuring you are getting the best value. She listens to what you want and what you are looking for and she helps you find it.

Kim also goes above and beyond in taking care of the little tasks, like calling the city to make sure there were permits on the property for something that didn’t seem like it lined up. These things may seem small but can definitely add up and are such a hassle to deal with. She will always give you status updates so you never have to wonder what is going on and she does a great job of following up with the other agent to make sure everyone is on the same page. She also knows all of San Diego really well, including north county and south county!

So in looking at the various categories that Zillow asks about, I can confidently give Kim 5 stars across the board – she has the knowledge, the process expertise, is more responsive than anyone I know and is great at negotiations! I wish they would have categories for being trustworthy, patient (i.e. not trying to push you into a bad deal), and if you would recommend this person because I will give Kim 5 stars for those categories as well! I trust her and value her opinion which means a lot when you are making such a big purchase or selling such a large asset.

Sold a home in 2012 in Scripps Ranch, San Diego, CA 92131.

I've known Kim for over 7 years when we were first in the market to buy our first home. At the time we were looking, it was a Seller's market and she was incredibly insightful and her market knowledge was impressive. She really listened to what we were looking for and steered us in the right direction. Kim learned of the townhouse that we purchased before it went on the market and we ended up purchasing it due to her strong negotiating skills. After our awesome experience with her, we recommended her to three friends who benefited from her real estate skills and they all purchased homes with her assistance.

When it came time to move up in the market, Kim was an obvious choice. The market had evolved in the seven years that we had last purchased. Her knowledge and expertise helped us buy our house. I have no doubt that if Kim wasn't our real estate agent, we would not have been able to successfully buy our house (multiple offers). Additionally, she was correct in the length of time that it would take to sell our townhouse. Kim is a tremendous asset! She has my utmost highest recommendation that you have her as your real estate agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Grant Hill, San Diego, CA.

Kim has helped us look for multiple properties in the San Diego area. We have already bought 1 house with her help and are currently working with her to purchase another rental property. The thing that my fiance and I like the most about Kim is that she is very responsive. We have used 4 other realators prior to finding Kim and our biggest gripe with them was that we could never get a hold of them when it really mattered. Kim has done a great job for us as our agent and we will continue to use her as long as we are in the San Diego area. I would recommend her services to anyone (and I have).

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.

Once again, Kim has proved herself to be the best out there. She just helped us buy the cutest home in Carmel Valley and we are so happy, we couldn't have done it without her! Sometime you don't need to have the best offer, just the best realtor on your side. Thank you (again) Kim!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Bird Land, San Diego, CA.

We felt confident with Kim and felt like she knew exactly what we wanted. We felt assured she had our best interests at heart. She was quick to respond to us through a variety of means (phone, text, email, etc). She was quick to get us into see a house she thought would be a prospective home for us.

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!
