Buyers Now Living in Dream Home After Aggressive House Hunting and Negotiating
"Elaine and Ray wanted to move out of the city and closer to their children's school.
Selling their home was not the problem, but finding one was. Homes were selling after only 1 day on the market and sometimes for more money than they were listed for. As soon as a house came on the market, Elaine received an email of the listing and went immediately out to the house. Kim knew exactly what Elaine wanted and was determined to find it for her and her family.
Kim saw a home come on the market that she had previewed a few years ago. Knowing that the home would be great for them, she called Elaine to meet her immediately. There were several offers on the home, and with Kim's aggressive negotiating, they got the home!!! They are currently enjoying the home. Ray, Elaine & Family received tickets for the Movie and Pizza night enjoying the evening." - Ray, Elaine & Family
Relocation Buyers Find New Home With Aggressive Home Search
"Mike and Noreen were relocating into the area. They wanted to wait for their home to sell before they started looking for a house. Kim and her team emailed them new listings as they came on the market. When they were ready to buy, they came to Kim to aggressively look for homes.
Within 2 weeks, they found their home and moved 2 weeks later. Kim not only found them the perfect home for them, but also in the time frame they were looking for. They are now enjoying their new home in Twinsburg!!!" - Mike & Noreen

Twinsburg Family makes additional $9,300 When Selling Their Home
"Jim and Betty thought they could sell their home on their own, however, they did not want the aggravation. A friend told them about Kim's Proven Professional Marketing Plan when selling a home. After interviewing with Kim, they decided to hire Kim and her team. Here's what they have to say.
Home Sold In 16 Days And They Saved $9,317
"We didn't want the hassle of selling our home on our own and were debating whether we wanted to hire a Realtor® and pay 7% commission. A friend told us about Kim's Various Marketing Programs. The program we chose allowed us to have a personal real estate consultant who assisted with negotiating, qualifying the buyers, marketing, staging of home, free multiple listing access, online feedback after showings, and more. We signed up with Kim's team online and sold our home in 16 days!! The program saved us $9,317 when selling our home." - Dan & Ellen
Home Sold In 2 Days within 1% of Listed Price!!
"Reverend Anderson was referred to Kim by his neighbor. Kim and the team serviced them a few years ago. Reverend Anderson was relocating to Chicago and needed to sell his home quickly and needed as much money as possible.
Home Sold In 16 Days!
"My family was outgrowing our Townhome in Macedonia...and quickly! A mutual friend referred me to Kim and we started searching for new homes right away. Just a couple weeks after I had started working with Kim, the perfect home came up on the market. Kim set up an appointment, called me and told me to meet her there ASAP. It was a hot new listing, and Kim wanted to get me into see the home before anyone else. We were the first ones in and sure enough, I was in love with the home!
First Time Buyers
Kim Helps Relocation Buyers Find Home In The Perfect Area
"We relocated to the area from the West Coast. We were renting, but apartment living was very uncomfortable for us. We were ready for a home of our own! We saw one of Kim's listings on the Internet and emailed her for more information. The home wasn't for us, but we were impressed with the free HomeFinder program and signed up with Kim and her team.
We were unsure of the area and didn't know where to start. Kim told us about the market in the area and knew Summit County very well. She helped us assess the tradeoffs between new construction and resale homes that were 1-10 years old. We found the perfect home in a great area. We were so excited!
First Time And Scared!
"We had been searching for homes on our own and we weren't having much luck! My sister saw an ad for one of Kim's listings in the paper. We decided to attend the open house. The home was perfect! It was exactly what we were looking for...3 bedrooms, basement, garage, central air, a great yard...this home had it all!
Sick of Renting And Ready For A Home Of Their Own
"We were sick of renting and wanted to have a home of our own. We wanted to find out about our mortgage options. We weren't really sure if we could even afford to make the big step. We were referred to Kim by a very good friend.
We met with Kim and she discussed our home buying options at a Planning & Strategy Consultation. She helped us get a free mortgage preapproval and we were ready to start our home search. We were anxious to find the perfect home!
Kim and her team sent us listings daily. We set up an appointment to see a few homes that looked good on the sheets. Another home had come up in the meantime; Kim's team showed us that home too. That was the one! An adorable home with a fenced yard, we could not believe it! We were apprehensive at first, as this home was a little higher that we wanted to spend. Kim brainstormed with the mortgage consultant who had a bi-weekly mortgage program at a great rate. We were both very excited!
Working with Kim and her team was a pleasant experience and not stressful at all. We were nervous about purchasing our first home, but the team helped us through every step of the process. We really felt comfortable with them and would recommend them to our friends and family." -Brian & Kim
First Time Buyers ... Locate Your Lifestyle
If you are looking for a new home, it is important to communicate with your real estate agent about any special aspects of your lifestyle that will influence your choice. This information will help your agent to locate the perfect home for you and your family.
Are you a gourmet cook who loves giving lots of parties? Do you want space to accommodate hobbies such as painting, photography, or woodworking? Will your decision be influenced by the accessibility of a community gym, a golf course or tennis courts? Does your son need space to rehearse with his rock band? Do you need a home office? Are you planning to enlarge your family? Is there someone in your household who cannot climb stairs?
Knowing the significant factors that will influence your housing decision helps the agent to narrow the selection of homes on the market.
There were 7 buyers at the open house and we were nervous. We did not want to miss out on this house! We presented an offer and the sellers accepted. We were really excited!
Kim and her team worked with us through the sale until settlement. They were very accommodating, always available and always calling to check in with us. They were very professional and the service was great, even though Kim and the team did not represent us. It was really a great experience and we would refer all our friends and family." - Bob & Andrea
Kim and her team were great. Kim runs her office with a unique twist...a blend of marketing, customer service and responsiveness. We had a great home buying experience! We are looking forward to enjoying our new home and enjoying all that Cleveland has to offer. We definitely refer her to everyone we know!" - Damon & Kelly
After careful negotiating, our offer was written and accepted within 12 hours. We quickly put my current home on the market and it sold within 1% of Listed Price in only 16 days!!! The boys and I are now enjoying a spacious new Cluster Home near their cousins. I am a fan of Kim and her team's services. I refer everyone I know to Kim because I want them to have the same great experience." - Karen
Seller Saved Over $11,000!
Nick and Liz had their home for sale with a traditional real estate company. They were moving because the house had become too big for them. They were unsuccessful. They had already moved out and paying the mortgage on the home every month was a financial burden.
Kim & Her Team Saved Us Valuable Time And Money
"We decided to sell our home on our own and we knew the market was not at its best. Then we saw Kim's sign on a property right in our area. We found out about her Proven Professional Marketing Program and the menu of services she offers Sellers. Kim positioned our home skillfully. We interviewed another Realtor, but they could not match Kim's menu offer.
Kim really came through for us, not only with her menu of services, but also with a checklist for us to get our home on the market. We had a lot of stuff in our home and Kim arranged for us to have things taken to another location, so the home would appear bigger. We also took her advice about painting a few areas in the home. The home was ready to go! In no time flat, within 21 days, our house was sold within $1,900 of Full Price.
With Kim's team, someone was always there to help us. When we got to know everyone at the Golf Outing, it really put a personal touch on our dealings with the team. The staff was knowledgeable and very efficient. Kim's Proven Professional Marketing Program saved us time and money when selling our home. We will definitely refer everyone we know to her." - Sam & Joan
Kim agreed to sell their $325,000 home for a Flat Fee of $11,375. Kim found a buyer without a Realtor®, so the Nick & Liz were able to save the fee they would have normally had to pay the other Realtor®. They were able to save thousands! Nick & Liz have since referred many of their friends to Kim. - Nick and Liz
Kim staged his home and gave him a list of items that needed to be addressed before he put his home on the market. Kim implimented the marketing program for 2 weeks prior to allowing the first showing on the home, placed it on the Internet and advertised the home.
All the pre-emptive marketing techniques worked like a charm. On the second day of showings, 6 families previewed the home and there were 2 offers. Reverend was ecstatic and referred Kim to a friend before he left town to fulfill his referral promise to Kim and the team. Reverend is now enjoying his new position and promised to continue referring Kim and the team at least 1 person a year all the way from Chicago!!" - Reverend Anderson
"Not only did Kim save us money, Kim showed us how to stage our home to get more money. We never would have done half of the ideas that Kim recommended. We opened up our house, it looked much roomier and people gave us more money because it showed better. We have recommended Kim to friends." - Jim and Betty
