Kim Ziton is the best Realtor we've ever worked with! We came into the house hunting experience with hesitancy, not sure we'd find what we were looking for within our budget. Kim was relentless in her pursuit to help us get in the home of our dreams. She was always available, ready to listen, problem solve, and help move negotiations forward. We would highly recommend Kim Ziton for anyone seeking to purchase or sell a home. She is THE BEST there is!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Woodbury, MN.
Kim sold our home in Nov, 2014. She was alway very prompt in responding to our inquiries and provided us with market analysis to support our decisions on a regular basis. Kim worked hard to market and show our home even after we moved out, with weekly open houses and networking with other agents. She updated photos sending the photographer out on 4 separate occasions during the sale process. We were very satisfied with Kim's professionalism.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Minnehaha, Minneapolis, MN.
Kim was just exceptional, both in selling our home and helping us purchase a new home. She is a communications pro -- responding within minutes to every question and request, and providing thorough and thoughtful insight and information. She is very skilled in relationships and made the selling and buying processes easy for both parties and their agents. With Kim's expertise, we sold our home in less than a week within a few thousand dollars of our listing price. She went on to help us purchase a home that was listed well above our budget, but negotiated into our range. We couldn't be more thrilled and would recommend Kim to anyone.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Woodbury, MN.
Kim is OUTSTANDING to work with!!!! Our buying experience was successful because of Kim's expertise...she is professional, knowledgeable and extremely resourceful. We were able to look at multiple homes before they hit the market...a testimony to Kim's MANY contacts and respect for her within the real estate community!!! When we were faced with several multiple offer situations...Kim made it happen!!! She truly is the very best of the best!
My Wife and I have know Kim for a few years now. In spite of her diligent efforts to secure a buyer for us our first attempt to sell our home during a sluggish market just did not work out. We can definitely say it was not for lack of effort on Kim's part. Consequently when we decided to evaluate what was available on the current market, we called Kim to show us properties that met our criteria. She was extremely responsive and on top the the local market. As a result of her knowledge base she sold our home before it even was listed! Understanding our needs she showed us several homes, all of which would have been acceptable. She did not waste our time showing us properties that did not fit our criteria. We were able to choose the one we liked best. Kim expertly guided us through both the selling and purchasing process. She is extremely thorough. Kim, in our estimation the hardest working Real Estate person we know. If the need arises in the future, we will definitely choose Kim again for our real estate needs.

Kim went above and beyond and really made our transactions appear routine. At the time of our listing the market had very little inventory. Kim used her knowledge and expertise of a particular area to find us a home before it ever hit the market. Kim is meticulous with her follow up and extremely passionate about her profession. She brings high energy and confidence which makes buying and selling a home with her very easy. Kim is honest, trustworthy and hard working. I would recommend Kim to anyone because she is driven to be the best at representing her clients. In my opinion she is as good as it gets. We consider Kim a friend of our family.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Lake Elmo, MN.
We contacted Kim Ziton after doing a little research to find the best agent to guide our home search in the Lake Elmo/Woodbury area. We interviewed Kim and knew right away that she was the representative we were looking for. Kim is cheerful, articulate and has boundless energy. Kim is also a great listener--she listened to our specific criteria, listened as we debated whether to build or buy (she can represent you for both), got to know our timeline and budget, and went to work. She helped us learn about neighborhoods and their history, about builders, and about the community. We found the perfect house among the first four that we viewed. That's where Kim really began show what separates the few great agents from the large number of realtors out there. She helped us arrive at a reasonable offer, and got the house under contract quickly. Using her contacts, she was able to arrange for a highly qualified inspector to complete the inspection within days. This brought us to another critical point in the process: which items to ask to have repaired, and which could be noted but ignored. While all items in the report will eventually have to be dealt with, Kim helped us to identify the major items, which the sellers agreed to repair. Kim was there for the final walk-through and closing, both of which went smoothly, and we're excited and pleased with our new home.
Whether buying or selling, the agents involved will generally be paid the same. Why wouldn't you choose the best to represent you? We're glad we chose Kim Ziton.
