Kim France did an "outstanding" job for us. We were very impressed and happy with her efforts. She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. She took the time to find out what we wanted and showed us many properties to make sure we were comfortable with our final pick. She made sure we were getting value for our money and was a firm negotiator on our behalf. We would recommend her to anyone without reservation. She is truly a professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Hilton Head Island, SC.

As out of owners, Kim's familiarity with the area was of tremendous help for us. She showed us properties in several areas, that allowed us to get a feel for neighborhoods, and their amenities.

Under challenging circumstances, Kim worked with us to resolve many times of the difficulties of dealing with an out of town seller. She was quick to respond to many of the questions. To accommodate us, she went beyond the scope of what we expected any realtor to do.

She stayed on top of all the back and forth of the negotiating process. We highly recommend her to any prospective seller or buyer.

Bought a home in 2014 in Hilton Head, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928.

I came to Hilton Head for the first time in May, 2014. I live on the Jersey Shore and would be retiring in the next couple of years and never thought of Hilton Head vs Florida, but when I came here I fell in love with it immediately. I had friends here who bought from Kim France and they recommended her to me...........and that is where my story begins with Kim. I called her and never had time to meet with her but our conversation left me with a good feeling. I told her what I MIGHT be interested in and by the time I drove home, there were properties sent to my email that were spot on. She proved to me she listens to you and and doesn't try to give you properties more than you can afford. I came back down in October, 2014 for one week and purchased a property before I went home. Because of the price I am able to keep my Jersey Shore house and come to this beautiful place in the winter months. Kim was heaven sent and she makes you feel like you've known her forever. If you want someone who TRULY has an interest in your needs, is HONEST, INTELLIGENT, KNOWLEDGABLE of the area and pricing, then GO WITH KIM! She is more than a realtor, she is someone I would be proud to call a friend. Thanks Kim for all you did for my life.

Bought a home in 2014 in Pritchardville, Bluffton, SC 29910.

We met Kim in late summer of 2014. We have been vacationing in Hilton Head for the last several years and we have always said we wanted to retire here someday. Kim made our dream come true, it was not easy with us being over four hours away. There were many weekends when we seen a property that we wanted to see and we would call Kim and drive to Hilton Head and she would do whatever she could to get us in to see the properties. Finally she took us to a place that we absolutely fell in love with, May River Preserve and we just closed on our dream home a few days ago! We recommend Kim, she will find your dream home and she is great to work with!

Bought a home in 2014 in Pritchardville, Bluffton, SC 29910.

My husband and I worked with Kim to purchase a second home.  We live about 12 hours away, so we really relied on Kim to be our "eyes and ears" during this process.  We never would have secured our dream home without Kim's guidance.  Her advice to us during the bidding process was spot on.  She recommended a skilled home inspector and real estate attorney, and she remained involved in the process every step of the way.  When we hit a bump in the road, it was Kim who found a solution that was a "win" for all parties.  

Kim is very easy to work with.  Her follow up and attention to detail is unsurpassed.  I highly recommend her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Bluffton, SC.

Kim France is PHENOMENAL! Before I tell our experience, just know that with Kim you are getting an agent who is at the very top of her profession. Kim is a DYNAMIC COMMUNICATOR, extremely knowledgeable of the local market, and knows how to find you what YOU WANT. Long story short, we would not be in the incredible home we are in at a tremendous bargain without Kim. Our transaction was an eventful experience and we could not have navigated through it without Kim! I can’t say enough good things about her- if you don’t read any further do yourself and favor and choose Kim as your agent, you will not be disappointed. We began our search for a home in Bluffton in May 2013. I am a health care provider in the military and my wife is the same in private practice. Being 6 hours away, I did a lot of preliminary real estate searches and found Keller Williams website to be the easiest to sort through homes and save my favorites. Kim reached out to me via email and non-aggressively stated to let her know if I had any questions about the area. I was extremely impressed by not only her promptness in responding to emails, but the depth of local knowledge she provided about individual neighborhoods. Being so far away, I appreciated her honesty and once she knew what we were looking for, she did not steer us wrong. I quickly knew that she was the one whom we wanted on our team. (For the record I had an opportunity to use a USAA recommended agent with a $1,500 kick back to me and I turned it down bc we felt so strongly about Kim). The week prior to our first visit, Kim had us put together our top 5 favorite homes and she combined them with her top 5. We found a home we loved (my wife LOOVED) in our first outing with Kim, and quickly made an offer. Unfortunately, the home was pulled off the market before a counteroffer was made. We were devastated and were worried that we would not find another home like it in a neighborhood with the amenities we were looking for. We drove home 6 hours still thinking about the home and wondering what might have been. The following week, I got off work and had a voicemail from Kim stating, “If there’s a reason why you couldn’t buy the last house, this is it!” She was describing a home that had just dropped into our price range that was in the neighborhood we wanted to be in. She described every room from the hardwood floors to the travertine kitchen and her excitement got me excited about the home. I didn’t even try and explain the new possibility to my wife (who was still trying to figure out how we could buy the first house!), I just let her listen to Kim’s message. Kim took over 60 photos of the home and sent them to us, and we were hooked. We made an offer on July 2 without having even seen the home. This was crazy for me, but because of the photos Kim had sent and our trust in her, we went for it. The next day we came to an agreement, and the rest is easy, right? From, July 4 until October 7 we went through a challenging journey to close on this house! We were originally scheduled to close in late August, a date we planned a trip to Hawaii, moving trucks, and my wife starting a new job around, however the seller had issues that weren’t properly satisfied and our plans were thrown off. I was extremely frustrated, but Kim was the voice of reason. Her famous line, “Don’t throw the baby out with bath water.” Her patience and experience helped us navigate through a stressful transaction and on October 7, we finally closed. A hand written letter and a bottle of champagne greeted us in our refrigerator from Kim. Kim France gives exceptional customer service, knows the area extremely well, is text/email savvy, and will see you through until she finds you what you want (and close!). We are greatly indebted to Kim and would choose her again over any other agent a thousand times over.

Bought a home in 2012 in Hilton Head, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928.

I met Kim France thru a mutual friend and she helped me with purchasing a condo on Hilton Head Island. She is very pleasant and professional and did an excellent job at negotiating the price and also got me a quick closing date and she is always easy to reach and returns phone calls quickly. I will definitely use her services with my next purchase.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Bluffton, SC.

My Fiancee and I met Kim France earlier this year thru his aunt and uncle. Being 1st time home buyers, we didn't know how to begin. With the advice and guidance from Kim France, we felt totally at ease and placed everything thing in her hands. We gave her our budget and our needs/wants for our first home. She was completely honest, extremely patient, sincere, and truly cared. If there were questions or we needed full details of a property she was showing us- she went above and beyond to make sure she could get us that information. When we made an offer on our first house, she guided us in the right direction and kept the ball rolling with the process of it all. Her negotiation with the sellers were amazing, we talked with her about what furnishings we desired to stay, and through her negotiation skills, she brought back to us good news! We can truly say that dealing with such a great realtor, made the stress factor nonexistent and made our first time home buying expirence that more relaxed and actually fun! Whenever someone asks us about a good realtor in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area, Kim France will certainly be the only one!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Pekin, IL.

Kim helped us find and close on a short sale property in Bluffton S.C.. Wirhout Kim the purchase would have been impossible.

Kim France is an excellent realtor who is not afraid of hard work and will go that extra mile to ensure her clients find the right property. Beyond her work ethic is the fact that Kim is honest and not afraid to tell you the “way it is”. We trust Kim completely and it’s a nice thing to be able to trust someone in business these days.
