I would highly recommend working with Kim. She was professional, responsive, and incredibly knowledgable throughout the entire process. Our house sold very quickly and we had multiple offers despite an the onset of global pandemic. Kim's ability to guide us through preparing our house, marketing the house, and skillful negotiation helped make the process feel easy. I am so grateful we selected Kim as our realtor.

Kim was able to help me get multiple offers on my home a few days after listing. She helped me negotiate through the offers and work through with the buyer's realtor to make selling my home a seamless process. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Kim and would recommend her to others for selling their home!

My family and I had Kim help us sell our duplex and purchase individual homes. The process was incredibly smooth. She did a walkthrough of our current home and gave solid tips on what we needed to do to stage it properly, gave us a clear timeline that accommodated lots of varied schedules, and was fast with booking photos and getting everything online. We were fortunate to have someone purchase our home right away When purchasing a home, Kim was patient and really honed in on the needs of our family. As we gave feedback on different homes we liked/disliked, she was able to accurately predict if a place would be worth looking at for us. And she *never* made us feel pressured about a house one way or the other. When we had an offer accepted for purchasing a new home, Kim was extremely helpful with setting up contractors to come put bids on the repairs that we found after the home inspection. With concrete numbers in hand, we were able to find a compromise on price that all parties were satisfied with.
As a first time homebuyer, and an anxious one at that, Kim was the perfect realtor. Kim made sure that we understood each step of the process and answered all of my questions thoroughly (there were a lot). She met us early on weekends, late on weekdays and whenever there might be a home that interested us. There were never any surprises along our house hunt and Kim soon understood what we were looking for. I am now happy to say we are in our perfect home, in a great neighborhood with a much anticipated backyard! We will definitely use Kim with any of our future house buying/selling needs.

Kim helped us purchase a home in Lake Oswego in April of this year. We were first time home buyers AND buying from out of state so we needed a lot of hand-holding. Kim was wonderful! She took the time to check out homes for us while we were out of state and sent us videos of properties we wouldn't have been able to see in person. Not only is she a great agent, she is a kind and generous person. We felt comfortable with her from the moment we met her. Thank you Kim for making our dreams come true!

Kim helped us purchase our perfect first home in North Portland. From our very first conversation, we immediately felt comfortable and relaxed working with Kim. She helped us to understand what the process would be like, what would be expected of us, and what she would be doing to help us find the right house. We had so much fun with Kim during viewings, and we never felt pressured to come to a decision. When we were under contract, Kim was amazing at negotiating repairs, closing costs, etc. We came away with a great deal and the perfect house. Throughout the process, Kim was incredibly responsive, often going out of her way to meet us for viewings or to bring us paperwork. I can't imagine going through the process with anyone else. Thank you, Kim!

Working with Kim was a fantastic experience. We bought and sold at the same time -- a process I was dreading, worried that it would be too much to juggle. But Kim helped us every step of the way, helped us reduce the number of house projects we were trying to finish, and kept things ordered and most importantly ahead of schedule during the closing processes. In the end, we ended up selling our house for more than we initially believed we'd get, thanks to Kim's recommendations. And she helped us negotiate and land our dream home.
I can not say enough positive things about Kimberly. This was my first experience selling a home and I felt completely overwhelmed when I began the process. Kimberly is extremely knowledgable and walked me through the entire process. She was extremely accessible and easy to contact any time that I had questions. Kimberly addressed all of my concerns and made sure that I got maximum value for my home. I would recommend Kimberly to anybody I knew with absolute confidence. This may have been the first time I used Kimberly to buy/sell a home but it certainly won't be the last. Thank you again!!!

Amazing! Kim's intimate knowledge of Portland real estate was essential to finding the PERFECT home for our family. In a sellers market, over several months, Kim patiently worked with us to find our Portland beauty. We are convinced that this would not have happened without her persistence and connections! Thanks Kim!
Our experience selling our home with Kimberly as our agent was everything we could have hoped for, especially selling in Portland in the middle of winter. As first-time sellers, she helped us really understand the process, prepare our home so that it stood out and got us under contract in three days! From our first meeting, through the preparation, and up until paperwork was signed, she was always available, attentive and ensuring we were comfortable along the way. If life ever brings us back to Portland, we would work with Kimberly to purchase a home. For anyone in the Portland-metro area, we couldn't recommend her more highly -- for both selling or buying!
We are quite thankful that we had Kim as our realtor. She put us at ease throughout the entire browsing and closing processes. This was our first home purchase, and we had no idea about any aspect of it. We interviewed three different realtors in order to get a sense of what to expect. The other two were acceptable, but Kim was clearly the best choice by far. It was obvious how knowledgeable she was about her field. She very accurately understood who we are as people and what we desired for our home. At the beginning she outlined how the searching process typically goes and what it is like to buy a home in the current Portland market. We both lead busy lives, and Kim was very sensitive as to not over-communicate or under-communicate for each of us. Once we found a place she showed us the finer points of how to make an offer that is the most attractive to the seller. Throughout the financing and closing stages Kim worked very closely with our lender, the seller, and the seller's realtor as well. She handled all the sticky points with intelligence and grace. Quite frankly, during the moments when we didn't even know what to think about the transaction we simply had a great sense of comfort by knowing that Kim was in our corner. Buying a home is complex, and we certainly aren't experts at it. Kim greatly understood this and confidently held our hands the entire time. For each of the countless times that we signed our names, Kim helped us understand exactly what those signatures meant. We have now been in our new home for about a month. It is so wonderful and definitely exceeds our expectations of the home that we envisioned for ourselves. We give all the credit to Kim for putting us here. The next time we buy or sell a home we are going straight to her. I'd would highly recommend having Kim as your realtor. You won't regret it.
We had an awesome experience working with Kim! She provided excellent advice as we navigated the process of buying our first home, and she always had an easy-going attitude that put our minds at ease. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!.

Kim is wonderful! My husband and I recently went through the process of selling our townhouse and buying a single family home in the Happy Valley area. Kim was able to make the process efficient and was usually even a few steps ahead when it came to the negotiations and making sure details were taken care of. Having not gone through the house selling/buying process for quite some time, she helped answer our questions and didn't make us feel rushed or pressed to make hasty decisions. We really appreciated her and would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Kim was fantastic and helped me purchase the home I wanted without any pressure, just good advice along the way. Background: I moved to Portland, OR roughly a year ago and rented a home while I found the right area, neighborhood, and community that I would want to not only live, but own a home. When I was ready to start looking, I worked with Pacific Residential Mortgage to secure all the financing and create a budget for the new home. And I made a point based list of what I was looking for so I would have a way to compare houses. Now was the time to find a realtor and I started looking online, and asking around. Needless to say I interviewed 3 realtors that were recommend from work and the mortgage company. The interview was as simple as me scheduling an hour to meet each and have them walk me through their process. All of them were very similar, however Kim stood out because she followed the guidelines I provided for what I was looking for and didn't tell me that with my price point I should start looking at town homes. She did tell me it would be a waiting game and eventually we'd find it. Kim had a total of 6-7 houses in the entire area that were on the market that were within my price point and she suggested we go look at each of them, mainly so she could get a since of me and what I wanted that maybe wasn't on the list and how much stuff I was willing to fix. Well just say most of them were dumps, one was even a tear down. But at that point we had seen everything available and could watch for new listing to hit the market. Than we watched daily and sure enough a couple weeks in the home popped in my search, but said cash only. Kim was willing to do some foot work, and turns out it was miss listed and the seller was willing to take FHA, Conventional, or Cash. She quickly prepared everything and went through it all in detail, I signed and submitted my first offer. She helped me negotiate, discussing all my options and strategies each time and quickly got it back to the seller’s team. I can honestly say without her I wouldn't have gotten the house over the multiple other offers. After our offer was accepted she coordinated all the inspections, walking me through the process and everything was simple. After are inspections, we discussed our strategy and then we filed for closing. She attended me signing all the paperwork and handed me the keys the following day after we closed. I couldn't be happier and it was relatively a stress free process thanks to Kim. All in all we the whole process took just under two months from start to finish and I got a great home in a great neighborhood.
We had a wonderful experience working with Kim to find the right neighborhood and dream home. She was patient with us as we explored this city that was new to us, and gave us great advice as we worked through different options and finally negotiations. We'd recommend her to anyone looking for a new home!
