Meet Kimberly

Hi! I’m Kimberly Doner, seasoned real estate agent specializing in residential buying and selling in the greater South Bay area. I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and live in Torrance with my firefighter/paramedic husband, our two spunky little girls, and our 135 lb. Newfoundland dog. We love escaping to the mountains in the winter to go snowboarding!

My clients really appreciate how simple and straightforward we make it all. We’ve gotten the processes down to a science. end dquote
– Kimberly Doner

Real estate is like my third child! I know it inside out, love it deeply, and have been through its ups and downs. Over the years, I’ve refined a very meticulous system of processes and a stellar roster of resources that have proven successful time after time — and I can’t wait to share them with you!

  • Over 120 five-star reviews on Zillow and Yelp because clients love working with our team and are happy to provide testimonials.
  • The average length of time my listings are on the market is 10 days, which means that not only do I consistently sell above listing price, I usually do it in record time.

I use the nuances of real estate law and polite firmness in negotiations to get my clients what they want. close quotes

Meet Kim’s Team

quate_left-white Knowing we’ve served you well is what helps us sleep soundly at night. close quote white

– Lauren Andrews

A small-yet-seasoned team means you’ll never be passed off to another agent. Instead, you’ll get the added support of dedicated professionals who are intimately acquainted with your file, understand every facet of the process, and ensure you’re always taken care of quickly and effectively.

My operations manager, Lauren, is a licensed agent herself which means another set of seasoned “feet on the street” to preview properties, keep the ball rolling, and ensure we never miss a beat.

Instead of trying to be the “Jack of all trades,” I’ve cultivated a team of trusted experts who are specialists in their respective fields. Together, we’re a well-oiled machine that knows how to get the job done.
