Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Woodland, CA.
We relocated here from the San Diego area. Kim kept in constant contact with us by sending us listings that might suit our needs. On our first trip up here, she efficiently showed us 4-5 houses and we made an on offer on one that same day. She diligently persevered with us even when the going got tough. When that sale fell through (due to issues with the sellers, NOT Kim), she quickly found us another house and was able to negotiate a phenomenal price. Thanks to Kim's expertise, this sale went very smoothly and we have successfully relocated to Woodland.

Kim is professional, knowledgeable, an absolute pleasure to work with. We not only gained a valued realtor, but a friend as well. We highly recommend her!

Sold a home in 2012.
I've worked with Kim twice now--the first time she sold my house in Davis, CA when we were in the real estate boom. This second time, she helped me sell my home during a time when the market was at the very opposite side of the spectrum. I moved to another state for a new job and had to short sell my home-- she knew exactly what to do, and helped make the process as painless as possible. Kim is always on top of it-- and is extremely responsive and caring. Whenever a question came up, she was there with a quick answer. She's not just a great realtor who works hard to make the selling process as smooth as possible, she's also just a terrific person. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an amazing agent!

Bought a home in 2012.
As first time home buyers my wife and I weren't really sure how to begin the home buying process, Kim was recommended to us from some friends who had recently worked with Kim and from our first meeting with her we felt extremely comfortable going into this process. Kim is very professional but from the first time you meet her you get the feeling that you've known her forever. We got the feeling immediately that she was there to help us find what we wanted; Kim took the time to talk with my wife and I to learn what we were looking for in a house, budget, location, etc. and then did an excellent job finding homes that fit our needs. We were fortunate enough to find a home we loved very quickly and even though Kim was across the country on vacation at the time she was more than willing to begin our negotiation process. She was very quick to communicate with us and we were able to enter a contract with in a day or so! After entering contract with the sellers Kim handled the entire process with great punctuality and professionalism; she set up all of our home inspections and was there first hand for every one of them as well. She was realistic with us with our requests and guided us along through out the entire process. Needless to say I would highly recommend working with Kim if you are looking for a real estate agent. She is very knowledgeable, has many contacts in the industry and is an absolute pleasure to work with. We would never hesitate to recommended Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2012.
Kim Merrell is both a professional and a joy to work with. When it was time to put our house on the market, it was a no-brainer to list it with Kim; we didn’t consider listing it with anyone else. She had been the selling agent when we purchased the house in 2006 and we were impressed at that time. Fast-forward to 2012 and we are even MORE impressed. We were under pressure to get the house ready to sell fast, and Kim knew exactly who to recommend for all of the updating and repairs. In talking with the contractors, painters, gardener, etc, who literally started work immediately, it was reassuring and impressive to consistently be told, “We love working for Kim.” She always responded quickly and positively to any questions we had (including requests for hand-holding). Prospective buyers, other Realtors, and we were impressed with the presentation of the house. Then, after only a short time on the market, unusual circumstances arose and we ended up having to cancel the listing. Kim met this development with grace, understanding and nothing but support for us. While not the typical “happy ending” for buyer or seller (or listing agent!), our story is one more example of how Kim is the person you want working for you when dealing with real estate.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in West Sacramento, CA.
We were first time buyers in West Sacramento and Kim guided us through the process each step of the way. She showed us the homes after 5, so her flexibility really helped us find the right home. We purchased a short sale which was taking a long time due to the bank, but Kim would send us updates on the process and would respond to our emails right away. She would also press the other parties in the transaction to keep it moving. I feel that her tenacity in getting the bank to approve the short sale really helped us get this home.

Sold a home in 2011.
We were fortunate to have met Kim almost 4 years ago as we began looking for our first home. We immediately felt very comfortable with her and trusted her skills and honesty. She was so responsive to our needs and was always available to answer any technical questions or simply just to ease our nerves. It has been such a pleasure working with her that I recommended her to my mother, who bought a condo last summer with Kim's help. I would HIGHLY recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell a property!!

Sold a home in 2011.
Kim is an outstanding real estate agent. She did a phenomenal job selling our home such that the process was fun and straightforward, there were no surprises, and from start to finish we knew exactly what we were supposed to do and how to do it right. We wanted to work with someone who had honesty and integrity as well as a track record of success, and that's why we picked her to represent our home. Kim is the consummate professional: she has the perfect balance of skill, business acumen and creative thinking that gets results. We are so grateful that we worked with her, and would not have listed our home with anyone else.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $425K in Richmond American Homes, Davis, CA.
As first time home buyers, my husband and I knew practically nothing when we embarked on the process earlier this year. From the first day I met Kim I knew that she was someone I could trust whole-heartedly and that she had nothing but our very best interest in mind. She is honest and straight-forward and a true PARTNER. She helped guide us every single step of the way. She is extremely knowledgeable and savvy in her field (and beyond! She has an expert eye in design too!). I could ask her absolutely any question and knew, without a doubt, that she would guide us in the right direction. I could not have asked for more in a realtor....and now friend! I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Bought a home in 2011.
Kim Merrell Lamb is simply amazing!! In very short order Kim understood what I wanted, liked and needed and she delivered! She also kept me from myself. When I found the home of my dreams (and by the way, which I now own) I was anxious to throw money at it to ensure that it became mine. Kim counseled me to not over bid and informed me she would let me know when I needed to increase my offer. Folks, the bank did not counter my offer and I bought the home I love under the appraisal amount. In this day in age it is unheard of to have equity in your home. I had equity on day one and I got a home on a lake for an incredible price. In addition, I enjoyed each and every one of our house hunting trips. Kim is not only smart and incredibly knowledgeable about real estate, she is also a delight to be with. Kim delivered again and again. She kept me informed and negotiated on my behalf much better than I would have done for myself. I NEVER felt out of the loop or uninformed. She had an uncanny ability to know when I was beginning to wonder the status of the sale. No sooner would I wonder than I would get an call or email. This was the most relaxed real estate transaction I have ever experienced and I have had many. If you want to find the home of your dreams and enjoy the journey, Kim is the one who can make it happen and make it enjoyable.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Covell Park, Davis, CA.
When we needed help purchasing a property in Davis, CA, for our mom, we couldn't think of anyone else, but Kim Merrell Lamb, to represent our mom! Kim is extremely prompt in getting back to us with just the right information, and clearly goes above and beyond to really get to know us, in order to find just the right property that we are looking for. Kim would be THE Realtor to have on your side; she is that "peace of mind" that everyone should have when dealing with the maze of real estate transactions! Thank you, Kim! You are the BEST!!
