Kim Alden

  • Kim listed and sold my home

      Working with Kim has been a real pleasure. I was able to see up close and personal exactly how Kim treats her clients. When I referred my neighbor to Kim, I knew she would be well taken care of by Kim and her team. Their reputation is one that is trustworthy and professional. Kim provided just the service that was needed. She proved that over and over again with her thorough knowledge of the local market. Kim went above and beyond to satisfy her clients to the point of helping remove furnishings and negotiate the best possible sale price. She answered every phone call, email and text. Kim's professionalism and her genuine interest in assuring the clients were satisfied is commendable.

    • Kim listed and sold my home

        Issues experienced with this agent and her team are almost too long to list. My property took 6 months to sell during a strong seller s market. Agent's recommendation for value proved to be overpriced by $100K. Only sold when I reduced price against advice and then further compromised. Service issues were numerous over an extended period. Poor relationships established with sellers agents contributed to further problems.

      • "Kim was excellent!"

        - Dennis A Handzel
      • "Kim had a contract on my home in less than one month. Her dedication, expertise and experienced team providedme with the the most professional and personal service. She uses excellent support staff with photographers, stager,and drone photography. Kim was the only realtor who came to my home, on the first visit, with a completeexplanation of her services and sales, prepared comps for the Inverness area and an agreed upon listing price! Shehad an open house the following weekend. I never hesitated to call Kim with questions and knew that I would receivea return call quickly if she was unable to answer. She is very comfortable and approachable with her clients and apleasure to work with. I highly recommend Kim for the best realtor experience possible."

        - Leslie Luther
      • "I can't say enough about my experience with Kim Alden as my real estate broker! From getting my home ready tosell, pricing suggestions, and then of course, finding my new home - I definitely landed with the right person for thejob! I had 2 other brokers that couldn't hold a candle to the service I received from Kim. Her availability andrecommendations ensured that nothing was left to chance. I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing ahome!"

        - Wendy Lakoskey

        - Tomasina Biegler
      • Kim and her team worked very hard to get my house sold. I was with a previous agent for 4 months and did notreceive a single offer. Kim and her team's aggressiveness and attention to detail quickly turned things around andwithin 2 months I had an offer. Her aggressiveness and ability to network with a local buyer whose house she alsohelped sell was instrumental in getting my house sold. I would strongly recommend Kim to other potential sellers inthe market!

      • Before choosing Kim as my real estate agent I interviewed 3 others. Unlike the others, she gave small things we coulddo to help our home sell for more, faster. The listing price she suggested was 5% higher than the others. We sold ourhome in just 4 days and the final price was more than the other agents wanted us to start at. She always kept usinformed on what to expect throughout the process and was easy to reach if we had questions. She exceeded myexpectations in every category.
