Kim Doukas has helped us, as well as our daughter, through at least five different real estate transactions and we would highly recommend her! She is very responsive, knowledgeable, patient, and considerate of our requirements. If an issue arises during negotiations, Kim works diligently to resolve it while also keeping our best interests as her priority. She utilizes up to date technology to provide accurate and detailed information. Kim always exhibits a professional demeanor with other agents, seller, and buyers. We have referred friends and business associates to her while secure in the knowledge that she will provide them with her warm, personal, and thorough service.
Absolutely the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Bottom line is that she delivers results! I have worked with Kim for many years and she's second to none. She has an extensive array of contacts and always comes through. My success as a real estate investor is directly attributed to her hard work and professional insight. She really knows the market. I'm looking forward to more results!
Kim is a delight to work with. Always a smile and makes problems disappear. She had offers on our house within ten days. Her knowledge of the area and willingness to go the extra mile came together in making a quick sale. I will use her to find another home.

My wife, Kity, and I have known Ms. Kim Doukas since 2012 when we decided to buy and rent some investment properties in Pasco county, FL. We live in New York city and wanted the acquaintance of a local realtor who was knowledgeable about the area, knowledgable about the entire gamut of real estate, and who we could trust for honest advice with our investment goals. And Kim passed all our expectations with flying colors. Our investment goals were two-fold - short term and long term. The short term goal was to get an average net rental revenue of $450-$500 per house. The long term goal was that the houses would be below market price at purchase and would increase in value over time. Since 2012 we have purchased 9 houses and our daughter has purchased 2 houses thru' Kim, and she has made sure that all the houses met our goals. In fact, all these these houses including the last one purchsed in September 2014 have increased in value between 20% and 50%. Kim is also the rental agent and management agent for our houses. She has selected good tenants for us and collects the rents on time. We don't have to worry about emergencies and repairs. Because Kim is there! In almost all cases she has found the right repair person, didn't wait for me to pay the costs in advance (she paid them and sent me the bills later). She is an indefatigable person who has always been by our sides. I cannot but cite a case that demonstrates her integrity and sincerity. Aound 2013 I was in Florida to remodel 2 kichens in 2 of my houses. Obviously I wanted Kim's advice. Kim was very sick-running 102 degrees temperature. And yet inspite of her illness she was by my side for over 2 hours discussing the renovations with the contractors. Kim has been very honest with her advice and has worked diligently with us. Right now Kim is not only our trusted real estate agent but over the last 3 years she and her family (her husband Paul) have morphed to be good family friends. Kim is, and will be an asset to any organization. We are lucky to have found Kim in Florida!

I would (and we have) recommend Kim to others. What started as a bit of a rocky beginning for us, Kim resolved. Recently she has been extremely gracious and compassionate regarding my family situation and our current rental place. I know not all realtors would have been so understanding. Kim certainly strives to achieve the best outcome for her clients. For that we give her 5 stars.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you had such a bad experience working with me. Unfortunately, the contractor had promised the owner and I that the job would have been done prior to your move in date. I worked my hardest to accommodate you and your family, including crediting you the days that you were inconvenienced. It is unfortunate that you felt like this.

I have never met a real estate agent that was more thorough and down to earth as Kim. She was honest and knowledgeable and patient in explaining our options when looking for a home. She understood the type of residences we were looking for and minimized time spent on undesirable properties. She guided us as the bid offer and how to handle the counter offer. And upon closing took the time to explain everything. She's a go getter. If I ever sell or buy again, I'm taking Kim with me!

Thank you for the very nice review! I so enjoyed working with you and Jill. It never felt like work, it was more enjoyable. I was very happy to find the perfect house for both of you. If you have any questions or need anything in the future, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I laughed at the question about how likely I am to recommend Kim Doukas since I have already recommended her to no less than 5-6 family members and friends. I believe they have recommended her to others already. Kim is on a very short list of people I trust 100%. I'm sure Kim makes a good living in real estate but let me assure you that that is not why she gets up every day. Kim likes helping people whether it's getting out of a financial bind by short selling their home or helping you find your dream home. You don't realize the value of working with someone like Kim until you do. She has the experience you need in all aspects of the real estate transaction including finance.

Thank you so much for the very nice review! It was extremely appreciated and meant a lot to me that you and Robin felt that way. It makes me want to go and find you the investment of the century to show my appreciation! Haha! I cannot express how much your words meant to me.
