  • John listed and sold my home

      I just want to express my heartfelt appreciation for all you did during the stressful process of selling our home of 40 years. Whenever I had a question, you were right there with the answer and an extra dose of understanding and support. You were totally professional but with kindness thrown in. Your guidance in was such a blessing and probably the reason I survived the experience with my sanity intact! (Well, mostly) If anyone I know asks for a recommendation for a realtor, I will glad recommend you! Thanks so much!

    • John helped me buy a home

        Finally!!! From searching while we were pregnant to giving birth to our beautiful baby girl, the hours and days we've put into searching for a home, all of the hard work has paid off, we finally purchased a house to call our home, where we could build memories and watch our babies grow. With the help of our good friend John we can now say we are homeowners!!! Thank you John for everything you've done for me and my family, without you, we would still be searching and going crazy as we speak, thank you once again for all your time you've put into helping us find our home. Appreciate everything you did for us!

      • John helped me buy a home

          It is our sincere pleasure to recommend Mr. John Kim as a personal real estate agent. In the past few months my wife and I have worked closely with John in search of our first home. As with all new home-buyers, we initially found the process stressful and overwhelming, but i cannot think of anyone better for the job than John who has expeditiously helped us through the challenges. It is rare to see someone with the drive, enthusiasm and professional etiquette exhibited by John. Our search began in July, and given my current military orders in North Carolina and my wife residing in California, our predicament posed many challenges. Specifically, we needed someone who could work with the long distance and coordinate the process in a timely manner. Most importantly, we needed someone who can competitively negotiate with our loan; John was highly recommneded to us by our colleague. Througout the process, John was very patient and always made himself available to answer our questions. In addition, John was very attentive to our needs and worked closely with us to understand what we expected in our future home. We were very impressed by his knowledge base, ability to work around our schedule and his efficient and well-organized method of leveraging online applications to conveniently process and document paperwork. He was able to make many traditionally tedious and complicated processes simple and convenient. Together we were able to close on a beautiful home this December; just in time for the holidays. John's pleasant personailty and enthusiasm was a joy to work with and much appreciate by both us and the seller. In the current market when it's often difficult to navigate the real estate landscape, John's professionalism and integrity are rare qualities and we consider ourselves luck to have found him our first time around.

        • John helped me buy a home

            As a first time home buyer, I did not have a true understanding of how much work was involved in purchasing a home. John Kim, referred by my sister and brother, exceeded all my expectations of a real estate agent! He is honest and upfront about everything. John's experience and vast knowledge of the industry played a major role in the success of my new home. Any agent can sell a home, but what made me really appreciate John was his attentiveness to my needs and involvement in every step of the process, from beginning to end!

              John is a consummate professional. He works tirelessly for his clients and is extremely patient with his explanations of options. It's nice to know a trustworthy person in the real estate industry in light of the current system full of questionable lenders and agents. I highly recommend John Kim to anyone who wishes to buy or sell his/her property.

                I wrote this testimonial because I felt that my story might help with others who are in a similar situation and felt the need for a professional real estate agent. In addition, my experience with John S. Kim needed to be shared about how he had helped me and my family start anew. I first heard of John Kim through a friend. Believe it or not, my friend was a real estate agent himself. I was introduced to John because I was told he would "know more about this then I would." After the initial introductions with John, I immediately knew he would be my agent. I told John that I planned to sell my current home and move to an area where I would be able to give my own children an opportunity at a better school district. On top of a better school district, I wanted my children to be to be closer to their grandparents. The timing was critical because my children were about to begin their education at the new school within a few months. While most real estate agents only focus on one specific housing market, John was very knowledgeable in not just his own real estate market but also within the surrounding areas as well. As a family man himself, John was able to relate to my needs. John is very intelligent and has the necessary skill set to help me with my issues. His work experience and work ethic are unrivaled. The selling of my house was an emotional undertaking. All of the memories associated with our house proved to be much more difficult than I had imagined. John was very sympathetic to these emotions and assured me that starting all over again can be a positive experience. John assisted me and my family in every way possible beyond his job title as a real estate agent. He provided comfort and held our hands though this process together. In short: John became the friend we all wish we had in our lives. After John sold our house, my family and I moved into a rental house that was near my children’s school. After living there for several months, I recontacted John and I told him that I wanted to purchase a home and become a home owner again...with a twist. I wanted a house but not just within the city limits, but also within this specific school zone so the children can continue going to the same school without interruption. John worked tirelessly until we found a house...within the city limits AND within the same school zone. I was in awe. In what seemed like a short time frame, the house was ours. The house that I currently live in with my family was all because of the hard work and steadfast dedication from John. The sellers were extremely difficult to work with but John hid this ugliness from me so that I would have a perfect buying experience. Every loan option John presented to me were designed to fit my lifestyle with my family in mind. It was as if John had custom prepared every step of the process all the way to receiving the keys to the house with minimal effort from me. My family and I owe a great deal of gratitude to John. He helped us start anew and gave us the ability to set our roots at a place we can now call our forever home. As a retired Police Detective, I understand how things need to be done efficiently and effectively. John proved more than that. John was very accurate with his paperwork, the timing to submit those documents was impeccable, his knowledge of the housing markets were flawless and his deep understanding of contract negotiations was phenomenal. From crossing the T's to dotting the I's, John paid attention to every little detail throughout the process. I've always wondered about John's email signature but now, I have no doubt that John Kim is my "Personal Lifetime Real Estate & Mortgage Consultant." He should be yours, too.
