Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Madison, NJ.

Kim was a great resource during our move from out of state and really helped us learn the area and our options from a distance. She is very professional and I would definitely recommend her to people who are looking for someone who really knows the Chatham and Madison area. She provided answers to our questions and we never felt like we were being pushed towards a decision.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Chatham, NJ.

I've moved plenty in different cities and countries and have two rental properties, so I've had experience with many realtors. When I started to work with Kim over 2 years ago, I finally met (God put in my path), a one-of-a-kind realtor. I count my lucky stars. I own two rental properties and Kim has done excellent work with both (one is for short term furnished rental, so it requires constant work). Kim is very knowledgeable of the market, sharp, responsible, attentive to detail, excellent with follow through, very professional, assertive --all in all, a very solid realtor. But, she is also an amazing human being and a joy to work with, fair, honest, understanding, caring, diplomatic, patient and responsive, always willing to go beyond the call of duty. I know my business is in the best possible hands and I can trust she is always watching out for my best interest.

Sold a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $675K in New Providence, NJ.

Ten years ago, Kim sold our home and helped us find a new home in our town of New Providence. She gave us excellent guidance on what we could do to prepare our home for sale ..... none of which were impossible or over the top. She then did excellent, first rate marketing and our home was sold after one weekend on the market! She helped us purchase our new home and was very gifted and skilled in dealing with the sellers who at times were rather difficult. She did all the heavy lifting and was a pro about it from start to finish. We love our new home and we also live down the street from her. She is a great neighbor too!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in New Providence, NJ.

We recently moved back to the east coast, and while we were not new to NJ, we were new to the towns we were looking in. Kim spent time with us, touring the area, and driving through neighborhoods to help us narrow down our home search. She answered our questions straightforwardly and honestly, and responded to texts/emails/phone calls promptly, which can make a huge difference in a competitive market. Once she got an idea of what we were looking for, she was able to prescreen homes that came on the market and we really trusted her judgment. There are so many online tools, maps, and photos for home seekers now, but there is still no substitute for a realtor who is knowledgeable about the area and the profession, and that's Kim. Overall we really enjoyed working with her and although we don't plan to move again anytime soon! we thoroughly recommend her to anyone who is.

Bought a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $550K in New Providence, NJ.

Kim Crites-Carloto has all the attributes of an exceptional real estate professional. She is extremely knowledgable about her field, is trustworthy, and cares deeply for her clients. Kim always seeks to find the best value in a home for her clients in the price range they can afford. She is extremely responsive, and at all times maintains a high level of professionalism. We feel fortunate that Kim worked with us to find the home we have lived in for the past 14 years. We have referred several friends and business clients to Kim and will continue to do so.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Gillette, NJ.

From the onset Kim was totally hands on. I was selling my father's home and various things needed to be done prior to it going on the market and she recommended contractors to do necessary work. When the house was listed she had an open house for realtors and within a week, the house sold. She was present for the home inspection and followed through on permits needed and more. Kim was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in New Providence, NJ.

Kim Crites-Carloto is a consummate professional. We rented a house that she listed and then she helped us to move from there to a house of our own. From start to finish she was there helping us with any and everything we needed. We had to start looking right before the Christmas holiday as we had to get out of the house we were renting. She responded immediately and listened carefully as we explained what we were looking for. She took us to houses that were in our specified price range and met our criteria. She didn't try to show us houses well out of our range to get us to buy in a higher price range. I appreciated that she respected our budget and found us some great options.

When it was time to put in a bid on the house, she counseled us so well in what we should offer and then counter offer as needed. We felt comfortable with her knowledge and trusted her completely to have our best interest in mind. She is also extremely knowledgable about the area and the feel of various neighborhoods. She got to know us and was able to help us find the perfect neighborhood for us. Many houses in this area need renovation or updates and she was even able to get us contractors in to get estimates before we purchased the house so we would have a better idea of what our total cost would be. It was so helpful. I have 3 small children and she would meet contractors in my place so I didn't have to drag the kids out. She was here for the inspection and any other times she was needed. I would contact her in a heartbeat if we were looking to move again and I recommend her without hesitation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Madison, NJ.

When we started shopping for a home in the Morris County, NJ area, we knew the market was competitive – but we didn’t know just how competitive it was. Adding to our stress was the fact that we were looking for a nice, solid home (near the train) in the $500,000 price range – and we were conducting our search from more than 200 miles away.

We chose Kim Crites-Carloto as our buyer’s agent, and we’re so glad we did. She worked closely with us to stay on top of new homes coming to market – going so far as to preview more than a half dozen homes to tell us if it was worth driving three to four hours to see them in person.

Eventually, we viewed and bid on a lovely home right in our price range. There were other bids on the house (and it was certainly nerve-wracking!) but seller accepted our offer and I fully credit Kim’s professionalism, due diligence and responsiveness to helping us win the home. Even with several factors (time, distance, budget) working against us, we’re in a home that’s even nicer than I expected in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Madison. I’d highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for a realtor in our area.

Bought a home in 2013.

I don't write reviews often but I must acknowledge Kim Crites-Carloto's professionalism. Kim represented both sides of the sale of the home my husband and I purchased. As first time home buyers we were very skeptical and nervous about an agent representing both parties as we wanted to be treated fairly. Kim blew us away with her honesty, work ethic, knowledge and expertise. Calls were returned immediately, our silly questions were answered and Kim was very forthcoming with information instead of letting us "figure it out". She provided very valuable resources which helped us make good decisions along the way and the entire purchase was seamless. At 8 months pregnant, buying a home and moving is not the best way to spend your time and energy but my stress levels were very minimal and I felt 100% confident that we made the right decision by choosing Kim to represent us. I highly, highly recommend Ms. Crites-Carloto to any 1st, 2nd or 3rd time home buyer-- she has a very impressive resume and background and most importantly to a person such as myself, she is a caring and honest person who wants everyone to be happy and find a home to make wonderful memories in.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Summit, NJ.

I can not say enough about how thorough, competent, professional, detail oriented, and efficient Kim Crites-Carloto is. Years ago when I first expressed an interest in selling, Kim presented an exceptional market analysis. Compared to other reports I received at that time her presentation and research was heads above her peers. The market downturn hit and I opted not to sell. For years Kim politely yet persistently kept in touch. This was a hint of what was to come as I listed with her in 2013. She sold it in less that a week for 6% more than her peers wanted to list it for. She arranged for me to meet a contractor who specializes in home improvements prior to sale and arranged for staging. The resulting photographs were magnificent and brought in the traffic along with multiple bids. She proved her worth and sold the home over the asking price! Kim being Kim, was of course present for every inspection and provided me with details. Of course she was an excellent negotiator who placed my best interest first. Of course he did everything she said she would including offering to water the plants when I was away, making certain the house was clean, keeping me well informed. The list goes on and on. Kim Crites-Carloto sets the bar for what a realtor should be and has earned my highest recommendation.
