Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Marathon, FL.
I was a first time home buyer. Kim Rabito-Show went way beyond expectations. She explain the entire process, negotiated a great price, answered all my calls on any day at any time and also helped as much as she could during closing. Very professional and she is the best!
Kim was very knowledgeable of not only the properties but of the entire areas we were viewing. She was helpful in pointing us to good restaurants for the entire time we spent in the Keys. She was most pleasant to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for property in the Florida Keys.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Marathon, FL.
Kim went out of her way to help me with my condo purchase and she was the sellers agent! My agent that I was using really dropped the ball but Kim made sure I got the condo of my dreams! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase big or small in the Keys. She truly cares about her clients and does whatever she needs to do to ensure their satisfaction. Thank you so much Kim for all that you did for me!

I finally purchased my First Home unexpectedly and needed to do it quickly and Stress wise it is not an easy task, however after meeting with Kim she handled every single detail and really made it easy for me to understand the process. Kim is very prompt and very straight forward, I really felt at ease and the entire process went so smoothly. I own my own company so time is of essence and that is one thing that Kim does not waste is your time. When you meet with her she is ready and executes the process. Thank you so much Kim for such a great experience.
Happy Home Owner, Jill :)

Dear Jill, thank you for the review. You were a dream to work with and what made my job even better was seeing just how you fell in love with your new home. I thought it was great when we did your final walk thru how your new neighbors came out to introduce themselves and even offer to help you move! Your going to love it there! Thank you for working with me!

We highly recommend working with Kim to find the home of your dreams. She was great! She was born and raised in Marathon and has the local knowledge to find the home that fits your criteria. We are from NC and were only there for 1 week.
Prior to our arrival Kim provided us with information on many homes that may have worked for us, giving us time to sort through and choose which ones we wanted to see. She was always available and helped us with many details that were a challenge for us due to our lack of knowledge of the local area such as regulations in the Keys regarding insurance, renting, etc. In three days we made an offer on a home and our closing went smoothly. Kim continues to keep in touch and provides us with information and assistance.

Thank you Jeff & Judy! You were a pleasure to work with and you purchased a fabulous home! Enjoy it to the fullest and Welcome to the Keys!
Kim in my opinion is a very Professional, Courteous, Attentive & knows the real estate market. Kim helped us buy our first home. When we would get very stressed out and anxious, she knew how to reassure us that everything will be ok. She did not try and show us anything that was not in our budget. She was always very patient and accommodating. Not once did we feel like we weren't her highest priority. We viewed a few homes during this period and never felt pressured at all.
As a first time home buyer I was wary and inexperienced about most of the process, but Kim was very honest and knowledgeable. Communication was easy with her through emails, text messages, and phone calls.
When we finally found the perfect home she worked very fast to make sure we would land it at the price we wanted. She handled negotiating the entire deal very well and helped me coordinate all the other aspects of appraisals, inspections, and other services. I would highly recommend Kim!!

Thank you Katrina & Randy! Congrat's on your first home! I am so happy I had the pleasure of working with you both. Not everyone gets to live on the water in the Keys, you guys are lucky!! Enjoy!
We liked the fact that Kim grew up in the Keys.. this insider knowledge really came in handy. Her knowledge surpassed anyone we deal with in the past and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is searching for a genuine professional in the Keys...

Having been born and raised in the Florida Keys, Kim Show is very knowledgeable about the South Florida housing market. Her confidence,understanding, and personal attention during the house hunting process made me feel at ease. Thank you Kim!
If you're in the market for a new home in the Keys, Kim Show is my recommendation.
Sold a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2011 in Marathon, FL.
Integrity, knowledge and honesty are the key to real estate for me. Kim knows the area as lifetime resident - she values community. The market in the Keys is constantly changing and her knowledge is essential to buy or sell anything in the Keys. Kim knows that you are a new neighbor and treats you as a new friend and neighbor, combined with professionalism. I cannot speak highly enough about her!
Showed home in 2012 in The Gables, Upper Arlington, OH 43220.
Kim Rabito-Show was wonderful with us. We must admit we pushed her hard as we needed to see quite a few properties in a very short time periord but Kim made certain everything ran smoothly. We are heading back to the Keys later this month and have already scheduled several showings with Kim. We plan on buying a house in the Keys and will work exclusively with Kim. On a scale of 1-10, she is clearly a 10!
