My husband and I were looking at houses for a while. We had 1 realtor, but was not comfortable with him. Then we found Kim through some friends. Kim is our realtor we used to purchase our first home in Lomita! We thought about purchasing in Torrance, Lomita, Lakewood and Westchester and she was great about helping us narrowing our search. Kim lives in Torrance and has made herself available for us whenever we need. She is very personable and was truly amazing to work with through a very stressful process with. What I loved about Kim is that she over communicates so you always know what is going on during each step of the way. She kept me organized by keeping me completely informed about everything and I was able to update my timeline and files. Kim made our home buying process so much easier and took away a lot of stress from us. If we were having any issues with the lender, Kim was right on top of it to get the information to us right away. She made sure we were comfortable during each step. Kim has been so great to work with and truly made our home purchasing process an enjoyable one.
I don't usually write reviews for anything, but Kim is an exceptional real estate agent, so for her I will make an exception! Kim is an extremely efficient and assertive person, which is highly desirable in an agent. We were looking for a house in an extremely tight market, and aside from the normal house hunting methods, she had innovative and effective strategies to help us find properties. She was also very good at previewing any house in which we expressed interest and then providing us with a comprehensive assessment of the house before we ever looked at it ourselves. I found that very helpful in allowing us to focus only on properties that were viable candidates rather than wasting our time with a bunch of random open houses. We had a challenging escrow that was occurring during the holidays, and throughout the whole thing, Kim was relentless in getting us as much information as possible, streamlining all the inspections and any other detail or task that was needed. She was available to us 24 hours a day 7 days a week during the holiday season, and she was instrumental in us ending up with our dream house. I would recommend her to anyone with no reservations. She always made us feel that we were in the best hands possible.
My husband & I worked with Kim while searching for our first home. As first time homebuyers and also new to the area, there was a lot to learn. Kim walked us through the entire process and provided all of the tools to be knowledgeable consumers. She gently guided us when we needed direction and was always there to answer all of our questions. We made a few offers which came down to stressful negotiations and she always kept her cool and offered sound advice. I strongly felt she had our best interests at heart throughout our (long) house hunt. I'm happy to say we have closed on our home which we will move in to this month and I am so grateful to Kim. I would highly recommend her again and again!
