Real estate agent, California Real Estate Salesperson License
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Mission Bay Park, San Diego, CA.
I should start by saying that this is not the first time we have used Kim as our agent. The best way to sum up working with Kim, is just that she gets it. She understands the process and how to be prepared to make the process go as smooth as possible. It is important to have an agent that can appreciate your own wants and dreams, but also is not afraid to show you a bit of reality when it is needed.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Lake Murray, San Diego, CA.
Kim diligently helped us search for our first home for almost a full year! We were looking in the San Carlos area of San Diego but with a limited budget. We loved our starter home and neighborhood. She recently helped us to sell that home as we moved to our second home in the area! Kim is friendly, personable, and kind. We actually became friends through the process. She is professional, knowledgeable, detailed, and made herself available for all of our buying and selling needs. She is the only Real Estate Agent I recommend to friends.
Kim sold us our very first home 4 years ago and just recently helped us sell our first home and help us buy our second home. I wish I could give her 10 stars because she is that amazing! Buying and selling a home can be stressful process but Kim takes all of that away as she is incredibly knowledgeable and professional which eases any worries you may have because you know she is ALWAYS going to do what’s in your best interest. We received multiple offers on our home and she helped us go through all the offers and understand exactly what the specifics were of each one so that we felt completely confident choosing the best one. We also worked with Kim's husband Ryan Gelardi for all of our loan needs over the last 4 years and being able to work with them as a team is such a huge benefit. The left hand really knows what the right hand is doing which makes the process that much easier. Seriously we love these two and refer them to all our friends and family!
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $450K in North Clairemont, San Diego, CA.
As first time home-buyers, the process can seem daunting and confusing - Kim was very patient with us, and actively looked at homes with us for about 10 months before we found the right home. Kim was always prepared and knowledgeable about properties, and had a really good feel for making competitive offers. Sometimes these suggestions were out of our reach, but then Kim would work with us to be creative and make the most competitive offer possible in our price and cash range. Working with Kim's husband Ryan Gelardi for a mortgage was a bonus that made the process seem straight-forward and smooth. We have recommended Kim and Ryan to many friends, who have also purchased homes and been very pleased with their experience.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Lake Murray, San Diego, CA.
Kim is tops in every category. As a senior citizen I can say that she is the very best realtor I have ever had. It took me quite a long time to find the perfect house. She was patient and kind through the entire process and responded quickly to my every inquiry. Once I found my home, she showed her professionalism in dealing with everyone involved. She has thorough knowledge of all the financial and legal aspects of the purchase and was able to guide me through the negotiations while scheduling visits from relevant specialists. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. She is a true professional while being a most pleasant person.

Buying your first home can be scary! When I was ready to buy my first house, I looked for references from friends for an agent to work with me. Thanks to a work colleague, I found Kim Gelardi! Kim was GREAT in listening to my needs and what I was looking for. With her expertise and knowledge, she helped me so much along the way and I wasn't as scared going through the process. And, even when it looked like the first offer was going to fall through, Kim didn't let that happen and in the end was an amazing agent in helping me get my first house. Thanks to Kim, I am happily living in the house that was meant for me and I couldn't be happier!!!!! Kim is fantastic!!!
