We started our search for a place to call home back in 2013 and enlisted Kim to be our broker. We are extremely selective and budget conscientious ~ a near lethal dose for most brokers! In retrospect, our 3 year journey was full of ups and downs and quite a few "in-betweens" ~ with nearly a dozen offers, X3 counter offers and counter-counter offers, 3 escrows, 2 fallouts…and, of course, 1 closed deal. Needless to say, our search was a humbling experience with disappointments and frustrations in nearly every turn of the transactions. But ~ we have Kim on our side who was with us every step of the way. Kim's unwavering determination, persistence, patience and professionalism provided the only guidance that we could rely on throughout this journey. Kim delivered not only personal brokerage support but also something that we just did not expect from a broker…. hope. The last time we fell out of an escrow, after several weeks of back-and-forth negotiations, counters and inspections, we were quite deflated, emotionally drained ~ at least, until we took Kim's simple yet comforting words into our hearts ~ "…it [fate] was not meant to be. Our home is still out there waiting for us."
Today, thanks to Kim and the A-team she has assembled for us, we are in our new perfect home at last! Kim's optimism will always be cherished by us. Really, I don't know how many brokers out there who would want clients like us ~ we are just so fortunate to have Ms. Kim Doner as our broker!
We would be delighted and privileged to answer any specific questions regarding Kim's performance. We may be reached at 213.268.1791.
Being a Team Leader at KW, I have the honor of meeting a lot of top agents. Kim Doner is one of the most professional and thorough agents I have ever had the privilege of meeting. She ensured that the transaction was smooth and updated me regularly, making it easy for me to focus on my job and not on my home purchase. She is definitely my realtor of choice and I will definitely be asking her to be my realtor for my future purchases or sales.
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!
