Ratings & Reviews

Kym was amazing! When I called her she was quick to find a time to meet. She scheduled a walk through of the house, gave me an honest assessment on the positives and potential negatives of the house. She worked closely with my tenant in a thoughtful way to ensure that the house was spotless for the open house. She helped sort through the multiple offers received. She helped secure a great price for the house that was above the list price. Kym made the process of selling the home easy and convenient. I don't live in the same city as the home and she handled so much of the process. I would highly recommend Kym when it comes to selling your home. You won't go wrong working with Kym.

Sold a home in 2014.

Kym was honest and straightforward throughout the sale process. She kept us updated as the sale progressed. If I had more property to sell in that area, I would list it with Kym.

Sold a home in 2013 in Portola Hills, Coto de Caza, CA 92679.

Working with Kym to sell our old home and buy our new one was a great experience. I would use her again in a heartbeat. Kym was able to successfully handle a difficult pricing negotiation for our purchase. She was always available when I needed her to be and was quick to respond to texts and emails. I appreciated that Kym's personality had just the right amount of supportive/knowledgeable friend mixed with go get 'em tiger. We met Kym for the first time while looking for our realtor and I'm so grateful to have found her. We ended up with a beautiful home that we love for a great price! Highly recommend!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $225K in Atwater, CA.

I was so impressed with Kym when she found my home in Long Beach, there was no way I would have used anyone else when I retired and sold my Long Beach home. She was very responsive, gave me tips on how to better show the home and was successful in selling the home just in time for me to get the equity to put down on my retirement dream home. She is great! Highly recommend her!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $600K in Belmont Shore, Long Beach, CA.

Once in a Blue Moon - that's the only way to describe the spectacular Kym Elder ! My small home in beautiful Belmont Shore had languished for 6 long months on the MLS without success, even during our best beach season. Some offers.... but always below market. I'd decided to take my home off the market. Then something inspired me to talk with Kym Elder whom I'd known as about the Top Seller in Belmont Shore, Naples and nearby. But she had a special reputation for her spectacular skills and success representing exclusive high end properties. Would she take on my rather average Shore home like she would her more typical clients? Well, not only would she, but she did so with a gusto like you wouldn't believe! Price was a key to me as I'd watched my home's value slip over the months. Amazingly, Kym was able to set my home price at the perfect junction of "market and me."

Kym wasted no time and spared no expense to professionally present my home: Day 1, a skilled videographer arrived with Kym who herself narrated the most compelling tour of my home and neighborhood. Next day this gorgeous professional video of my home, edited and set to music, was ready. Meantime, Kym prepared high quality fliers highlighting my home on both sides with beautifully shot photos; next, the For Sale sign complete with QR Code even, went up; at the same time Kym ordered the marketing on all the popular real estate info websites at their premium levels; She placed a sizable color add in the local newspaper for the weekend, and she confidently suggested I seek a termite report to be ready for the sale. So within just a few days we were live! I was stunned with all Kym had done with such attention to quality and detail and speed.

That very 1st weekend a potential buyer came to see my home, made an offer, and with few negotiations we went through escrow and closed 45 days later. I credit Kym completely with the sale of the same house that sat for 6 months before she came with her know-how and her gusto and her welcomed professionalism, to sell it at market price in just days! My house was so well presented (video, newspaper add, online quality website placements, exquisite fliers, modern high tech signage) and so skillfully represented ( I didn't have chance to tell you just how professional and thorough Kym was on every aspect of Closing preparation - always present herself at key times when Buyers needed to inspect etc., always timely in communications with me and with Buyers' realtor throughout the whole closing process; and much more ).

Think about it: Kym Elder worked with as much gusto and professionalism to sell my home as she does selling an exclusive high end property. Her commission was much less, but to Kym who truly loves her work, each client deserves the full compliment of her experience and know-how, the same high quality presentation and representation; and each home and each client is special and unique to her.

Kym Elder is a "Once in a Blue Moon" person. I am privileged that she represented me in the sale of my home and I hope you will have the good fortune to work with this spectacular realtor, Kym Elder.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $425K in The Plaza, Long Beach, CA.

Kym was great! She was very patient, she never rushed me or gave up. She consistently had new houses for me to see. Some times 7 or 8 per week. She helped me figure out what I actually wanted. After patiently showing me almost 100 houses, we found the perfect one for me. She was great throughout the negotiating process. The owners actually chose my bid because they preferred to work with Kym over the other bidder's agent. She took care of everything!

Sold a home in 2010 in Belmont Heights, Long Beach, CA 90814.

Kym was right on price for both properties. She was on top of all correspondence and I was 3000 miles away. We wanted her to list our third property, but she felt it best to have a realtor from the area that had more experience in selling mountain resort properties. Otherwise she was willing to take the listing. She continues to keep in touch with mailings and emails. Great job, would recommend in a heart beat. Bryn McMahan Berlacher
