"I really can’t say enough great things about Kimberly. My husband and I (first time home buyers, active duty Navy) were moving back to San Diego from Washington state and knew we wanted to buy a home. I started researching agents in the area and found Kimberly, noting that she had won a few awards and donates a portion of her commissions to Big Brothers/Big Sisters. I got in contact with her and I am so glad I did. I don’t think we were the easiest clients she’s ever worked with but Kimberly was consistently kind, helpful, and reassuring. We did most of the home buying process from out-of-state (in fact, part of the time I was in Colorado while my husband was in Washington) so we really needed an agent we could trust and who would be understanding of our situation. We weren’t able to be in the area to go to every show with her but because Kimberly is so seasoned at working with people she was able to really zero in on our preferences and style and we were able to trust her opinion completely on the homes she viewed for us. We thought we had an idea of where we wanted to live but weren’t having success finding the right home in the area so Kimberly really helped us broaden our search area and consider different neighborhoods we wouldn’t have thought of without her suggestion. When we finally found the home we wanted, Kimberly really went to work. We have never worked with someone so driven and so dedicated to his or her clients. She put together a package that really sold us to the seller – very important in such a competitive market. She guided us through the entire process and fought for us when the seller and seller’s agent were obstinate. Kimberly is so good at what she does and has worked so hard in her career that she works extremely well with other agents and can anticipate their reactions, something that was helpful in putting in our offer, negotiating repairs/reduction in the sales price, and other seller concessions. We have been in our home for a little over a month now and Kimberly still checks in on us to be sure we are happy. Kimberly genuinely cares about each of her clients and wants them to be happy in their home purchase. We would definitely, without hesitation, use Kimberly for any future real estate needs and will absolutely recommend her to any friends seeking an agent."

"Kimberly exceeded all of our expectations and found us our dream home soon after we switched to her from our prior real estate agent (who showed us 50 homes that we weren’t interested in). She is an amazing real estate agent, and we can confidently say that we would never have found our first home without her– and our offer would never have been accepted without her go-getter attitude and immense efforts on our behalf. Before meeting Kimberly, we searched all over San Diego and started to lose hope that we would find a quality, detached, centrally-located, more than 3 bedroom house within our budget. Kimberly introduced us to a neighborhood that our first real estate agent had not even suggested to us, despite the fact that it was everything we were asking for. Her many years of experience means she truly knows the neighborhoods of San Diego as well as its real estate industry. When we realized that we found “the one,” Kimberly formulated a successful strategy for our offer which allowed us to get the house, despite stiff competition and a seller who was thinking about withdrawing from the real estate market. She was always reliable and in communication with us throughout the entire process of making our offer and going through escrow. Kimberly’s expertise boosted our confidence. Her work-driven personality and customized focus allowed her to quickly get a feel for our taste and make accurate recommendations on properties. She quickly spotted the best and worst features of every home that we viewed. She is honest and never once pressured us into making an offer. She is also positive, personable and fun, which was key to helping ease our stress associated with purchasing a first home. Since she only takes on a few clients at a time, she gave us the appropriate attention and focus we needed– including modifying her schedule to work around ours. It’s also thanks to Kimberly’s recommendation that we found an amazing lender who gave us the absolute best rate we came across and was the most trustworthy (we had been previously referred to two other lenders who both offered us exceedingly high-interest rates and/or points). We will forever be grateful to Kimberly for helping us find our first home. We will definitely work with her for any future real estate purchase/sale."

"Kimberly helped my wife and I buy and sell our first home. In both cases, Kimberly provided the best possible service. We were in a rush both times. When we were buying, my wife was 7-months pregnant, and, when we were selling, we had to move across the country for a job in a couple of months. So in both cases, we really needed someone capable and organized, which Kimberly certainly is. When buying, Kimberly learned exactly what we wanted and joined us in an intense search for the perfect home. She usually knew which homes we would like and dislike even before we did (and we saw many homes all over San Diego). We honestly felt like we had a close friend along with us, but it was better than that because she knows the value of a home (not just what a house costs) and can identify the worthwhile features. She helped us negotiate the initial offer and many changes throughout the process in order to get the deal we wanted. As sellers, Kimberly knew exactly what items we should focus on to get the house ready to sell so we didn’t waste the equity we had built. The photographer she arranged was top notch and the listing and advertisements looked great. We had a viewing on the first day we were on the market, with multiple viewings and offers in the first week so we could pick the best buyer. Due to Kimberly’s guidance, we closed in 35 days after listing and made a rather large profit on the transaction. I think the key thing to note about Kimberly is that she knows real estate very well and she communicates with you right away. Whenever she had new information, she shared it with us immediately so we never had to chase her down. She always had many excellent recommendations, which she only shared when we asked or when she thought it was essential. I’m 100% positive you will also have a great experience working with Kimberly."

"My wife and I recently sold our house through Kimberly, and have to give her the highest accolades for professionalism, integrity, patience and understanding. It was an extremely stressful time for us, since in addition to selling our house, we were making an international move (to Canada) as well as dealing with the immigration process for me, and trying to find a place to live in Canada. From the first phone call and visit, Kimberly presented a clear and thorough explanation of the process, the market trends, the plan for preparing and presenting the house, etc. She had a wealth of ideas for us to utilize, and we worked together to implement the plan. There were times when we were nearly overwhelmed by the stress, and Kimberly weathered all of the frustration we expressed with a calm and presence that was absolutely reassuring to us. She was able to keep our “eyes on the prize” through the whole process, and we ended up getting an offer above our asking price within days of the listing. The closing process went as well as could be expected, and we have now nearly completed our relocation to Canada."

"I could not have been happier with Kimberly Schmidt and her most excellent team! I approached her early on in the situation I was dealing with to take care of a rather unique probate sale for me and she delivered far better than I hoped. She did her homework on the property prior to our first meeting and told me exactly what she would do and how she would approach our particular case. Her presentation was well prepared and professionally done. She handled every aspect of the deal with professionalism all the way. She always responded immediately to every inquiry from me, as well as the prospective buyers. Immediately upon listing, offers poured in, and she quickly and thoroughly examined every offer and responded to each prospective buyer appropriately, and the sale was completed and closed very quickly (and we sold the house for more than it was listed). Of all the real estate agents I have been involved with over the years, Kimberly was by far the very best I have ever dealt with, hands down! I did some research before selecting her to represent me, and I clearly made the right choice."

Bruce H. || Seller

"My wife and I just finished buying our first house with Kimberly, and though we haven’t bought before, our experience with her was absolutely as good as it gets! We had several problems through the escrow process that were out of our control and Kimberly handled all of it and kept us up to date with what was going on. On our initial meeting, she listened to what we were looking for and found properties that met our needs. I don’t feel we were wasting our time at any of them. She answered all of our questions (which, as first time buyers, were A LOT!) thoroughly and I never felt like we didn’t know what was going on with our transaction from start to finish. And to top it off, outside of all the business aspects being good, she is very personable and made us feel at ease the whole time (NOT a feeling I get being around most RE folks). We will definitely look her up again next time we’re looking to sell/buy hopefully she’s still working in RE then because I don’t think it’ll be for a long time. Love our new house!"

"Kimberly Schmidt exceeded my expectations at every turn. I found her after an exhaustive search of potential agents to help me sell my home. Paramount for me was finding an agent who was responsive, proactive, and familiar with the specific market in which the home was located. Upon initial contact, Kimberly assured me that she met those criteria and she did not disappoint. Kimberly was on top of the process at every turn and kept me up to speed on all developments in a very timely fashion. No doubt she had multiple clients but I always felt as though her time was devoted exclusively to my listing. She will adapt to your level of knowledge about the process and fill in the gaps when necessary without condescension. She is a consummate professional who would do extremely well in the most competitive and demanding markets (LA, NYC). Hands down the best experience I’ve had with a realtor. Kimberly will work tirelessly on your behalf and negotiate the best possible deal, whether you’re looking to buy or sell."

Rich D. || Seller

"Kimberly just helped my wife and I close the sale of our first home. Within three days of listing it, we had received multiple offers and we ended up accepting a cash offer for above asking price. We were able to go into escrow and close with no issues at all. Kimberly makes it so easy and takes care of everything. She set up the professional photographer to take photos of our place, is very responsive via email, text and phone, and is all about complete transparency and disclosure. She did a great job of keeping us in the loop, which we very much appreciated, and she does a great job communicating with agents representing potential buyers. She also went out of her way to make sure we understood the whole process and got what we needed from all parties involved. Having a trustworthy and professional agent was very important to us and that is exactly what you get when working with Kimberly. I would recommend her to anyone of our friends and will definitely be using her again in the future."

Andrew T. || Seller

"Kimberly and her team delivered nothing but outstanding work. She made selling my condo in California so easy, that it didn’t matter I am stationed on the East Coast. She made everything virtually effortless. She hired a professional photographer to take photos of my condo and they looked so amazing that I almost wanted to keep it! On the first weekend, we went live on MLS, we had eight offers and two of them were above asking price! Kimberly went over all of them with me and gave sound insights and recommendations on what our next step should be. Kimberly was very professional and proactive. She made sure I was in the loop with everything going on from start to finish. She did such an incredible job that my fiancé will be utilizing her services​ once he is ready to sell his San Diego property this summer. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home. Lastly, as we say in our military lingo, I commend her and her team for a job well done! Bravo Zulu!"

Andrea W. || Seller

"My wife and I contacted Kimberly when we started our home search and we were not disappointed. From the moment we reached out to her, we received a responsive, professional communication. This same communication continued through the entire process of buying our home. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the process and negotiating strategies. She brought a unique eye to our search and helped point out things in houses we were looking at we hadn’t noticed or overlooked. Kimberly got to know us and our likes, which in the end assisted us with purchasing the perfect property for us. We were looking for a unique property and she stuck with us until we found the perfect house. She was great with answering any and all questions and researched issues in a timely manner. Kimberly is very easy to work with, making this process a great experience. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to our friends and family and will for sure use her for our future real estate needs!"

Sean U. || Buyer

"Kimberly did an amazing job for us. We decided to sell our house in Claremont and wanted to move to the San Carlos area of San Diego. We broke the first rule of real estate and fell in love with a house before our house was even on the market. We placed a contingent offer on our dream home and started the process of selling the home that we had owned for 12 years. Kimberly worked very hard and used ingenious ideas to get our contingent offer accepted and then did another fantastic job of getting our home on the market and selling at our target price within two weeks. The whole deal needed the stars to align and they did thanks to Kimberly. She is very good at what she does and she is is the kind of agent you want on your side and not the others. She will fight to get you the most for your house and do what’s best for her clients. Thank you again, Kimberly."

Stefano and Nina B. || Buyers and Sellers

"After accepting a job in another state, my wife and I were desperate to sell our house. We interviewed a number of realtors before deciding on Kimberly. The other realtors seemed to be telling us what they thought we wanted to hear. Kimberly, however, told us what we needed to hear, even if it wasn’t pretty. In the end, our house was only on the market for 4 days before we were in escrow, and it sold for more than we were expecting! Kimberly is candid, professional, tough, and knowledgeable of the real estate market trends. She will fight to get you the best deal possible. She was constantly in touch with us, communicating and explaining things every step of the way. Now that we are back in the market to BUY, we find ourselves wishing Kimberly could help us. With Kimberly as your realtor, you will not be disappointed!"

Alexis S. || Seller

"Recently Kimberly handled the sale of our home after my husband and I chose to end our marriage. While this was an emotional and painful situation, Kimberly was extremely understanding and professional and discussed our options, walked us through the process and then communicated clearly with both of us the whole way through. Her knowledge and professionalism led to our house only being on the market one day before we received multiple offers. Before the week was up we had an offer over our asking price and we were in escrow! From there it was smooth sailing. I was extremely relieved to have someone so knowledgeable and professional handling the sale of what had been our dream home with both compassion and understanding. I highly recommend her as an agent if you want your home sold quickly."

Emily S. || Seller

"I contacted Kimberly for my first home buying experience because two of my colleagues from work recommended her highly to me. And they are right. My experience working with her from the first meeting to now, close to closing, has been great. She is very supportive of her client’s needs, and she makes you feel that the most important thing is for the clients to feel comfortable with whatever decisions they are making. I never felt pressure from her to make a quick decision; in fact, she would even encourage me to think things through when I was trying to convince myself that I was doing the right thing. Her honesty, kindness, supportive attitude , knowledge of the market, and people skills make her a great real estate agent!"

Brian C. || Buyer

"She's also a much-appreciated straight shooter. A first time home buyer will have a lot of questions Kimberly can answer them. In fact, on the first day we met, I was given a big binder. It was a crash course on “House Buying 101.” It was very thorough and assured me that I am working with a true professional. I’ve told her many times that she has a very difficult job dealing with home buyers (and sellers). The process can be long, difficult and emotional. Kimberly handles it wonderfully and with poise."

Teresa S. || Buyer

"Kimberly is awesome. A co-worker of mine recommended her to me and I couldn’t be happier. I was looking for something with a lower price point, ($160K) and she made the process of buying a home as painless as possible. We looked at a few places and as soon as I walked into my home, I knew I had to have it. She got my offer in 3 minutes before another that would have netted the seller more money. She worked hard during escrow and even smoothed out some bumps during the escrow process. Thanks Kimberly!"

Liz F. || Buyer

"Let me just say Kimberly is great! She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I have used several agents in the past and Kimberly exceeded my expectations in every regard. If you’re looking to sell your home, I would highly recommend her and her agency she delivered!"
