Testimonials for Kim N. Bregman
Kim was excellent! She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. Though I have purchased other properties, this was the first time that I purchased property in Florida and having Kim as my buyer's agent made me feel like I had someone in my corner. She is organized, extremely familiar with the purchasing process in Florida, and really understands Florida's real estate laws. She stays up to date and can help you navigate current conditions in the real estate market. She not only worked hard and did a great job helping me buy my first Florida house, but she did it all during a pandemic! I will recommend her to my friends and family, and, if I buy another house, I will definitely use her again!

What can I say this is our 6th property within the last 20 years so very experienced buyer not mention I’m in sales myself. I was referred to Kim, right from the beginning I had no doubt. Wow nothing but professional more knowledgeable in the business and market than any realtor I have ever spoken with. NOT PUSHY or Overbearing. Kim only has one interest in mind and that is finding my wife and I the best and nicest property at the fairest price. Kim is totally NOT driven by a quick commission and she is not afraid to expose show stopper flaws in properties or advise to walk away. Working with Kim is a true safe partnership she actually listens, I would 110% recommend her to anyone she has proven herself – But sellers realtors beware with Kim you are dealing with a true Pitbull when you try to lie/hide or misrepresent anything you will lose! We love you Kim don’t lose those qualities, I’m sure we will call you soon always love buying real estate. Rick and Julie

We could not have had a better experience with Kim and would never consider buying a property in the future without her! Kim’s knowledge, professionalism and responsiveness are unparalleled. She quickly learned our preferences, provided us with quality listings and accompanied us on every tour. While on the tour, Kim learns every detail that might be important to make the decision whether to make an offer, and that might be important during negotiation. She prepares thorough comps and gave us excellent advice on achieving the best, fair price. Kim also was invaluable during the inspection and pre-closing process. She made great recommendations for inspectors and she came to the inspection to make sure things ran smoothly. We had a situation where the listing realtor was doing a favor for the Seller at a reduced rate. Kim was able to keep the process on track for a timely closing despite several pre-closing conditions, and a less than responsive counterpart. Kim even had to do tasks that should have been performed by Seller’s realtor just to get the closing done on time. Kim goes above and beyond, even keeping in touch post-closing and providing us with checklists and contacts that will come in handy with our move. As you can see, we can’t say enough good things about Kim and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home!

"New to Florida, we relied on Kim's knowledge of what features to look for in buying a home in the area. She helped us to identify our must-haves in a home, and this greatly helped in narrowing our search to those homes worthy of consideration. Having a professional who understands the home buying process and was skilled in negotiation helped us stay focused on the end result--a home in which we are very happy!"
This is the 2nd time we have used Kim. There are no words to express our appreciation for all she did to help us with our home purchase. She not only recommended an outstanding mortgage broker, but also gave us a list of resources saving us countless hours of research. During our qualification period, Kim left on a previously planned vacation. During her time away, she not only responded to emails, but continued to stay in touch with the seller to assure the process was proceeding as planned. Additionally, because the seller did not have a listing agent, Kim stepped in to provide them information to assure we closed on time. Her uncompromising attention to detail and unbelievable knowledge of the mortgage process and construction issues make her an outstanding representative. We are thankful to have been the beneficiary of her knowledge and experience and would not hesitate to recommend her.”
“Mrs. Bregman’s expertise and attention to detail is unmatched. Our family is beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her throughout this process. This woman was on top of EVERYTHING! Kim, you’re a rare find. Thank you for making this a smooth & rather pleasant transaction.”

“Kim is a fabulous buyer’s agent who certainly is a very experienced and knowledgeable expert in the local market. She made the stressful process of buying a home into an enjoyable experience. Once she knew our requirements and priorities she guided us through about a dozen homes in various communities pointing out the pluses and minuses of each home and exactly what extras had been put into the house. Once we chose our ideal house Kim skillfully negotiated for us the conditions, terms and pricing of the final contract. After the contract she guided us through the financing, inspection, insurance, and settlement processes. Kim is a pleasure to work with, and who was very responsive to our needs. I very highly recommend her as a top professional expert buyers agent.”
“Kim is superstar relator and person for South Florida real estate. She is extremely knowledgable, attentive, caring, responsive, professional, and a true advocate to help you buy the right home. Kim treated us like family, she fought for us, took the time to understand our needs, made herself fully available when we needed her help. Words cant do Kim’s abilities and work ethic justice; she is truly the super-relator. I wish we could buy homes more often so we could work with Kim on a regular basis… maybe one day. She is excellent to work with and will help you find the right home. She will help you through a somewhat daunting process of finding a home, obtaining a lender, all the way to repairs and making sure things are done right. She is super organized, will stay ontop of tasks for you and help you with of things you may miss. She gives her all for her clients and she is just a wonderful person. Thank you Kim, we appreciate you more than you know.”
As an out-of-state buyer, I relied heavily on Kim throughout the entire process from pre-scanning homes of interest to executing the closing on my behalf and at all times I knew that my best interests were first and foremost to Kim. She is the utmost professional and was a great pleasure to work with. If you ever need someone to help with purchasing a property in South Florida – just contact Kim. You will not be disappointed.
