We recently found and purchased a home with the help of Kim Sands and we could not have been more impressed. The property we found was unique but her comps were right on the mark. She is quick to respond especially with the amount of questions we had as buyers. She is a consummate professional and a hard worker. Her guidance through the process was comforting. We never felt rushed or pressured and she remained calm and pragmatic. We would definitely use Kim as our realtor again and would highly recommend her to others.
I am very happy with the services that Kim provided. I'm a veteran, and Kim was knowledgeable about the VA Loan process. She's also made some great contacts with contractors, home inspections, and others. In my case, I sold and bought on the same day, it went very smoothly throughout the process. Near our buy/sell date, there was an issue with my buyer's loan which blocked my loan. During this issue, Kim gave me consistent updates, and walked though all my options. She was able to clearly explain what was going on, so that what could have been a disaster was just a little hiccup. I recommend her to other Veterans and non-veterans alike.
Kim is amazing! She has great local knowledge and it’s extremely organized. Five stars in all categories is not enough to describe her. Simply amazing!
