Words are not enough to express my thanks and praise for Kim Wesselman. Our family has turned to Kim to buy or sell EIGHT homes over the past 14 years and feel so lucky with each experience! Her wise counsel, informed insight and blunt honesty keep us returning to her again and again. Kim works hard for us. She advises us well, cautioning, guiding and protecting us over and over. On our last purchase, Kim kept insisting we sign extension addendums while waiting for county approvals we were likely to skip. It ended up being a bigger issue that anticipated, and we're soooo glad she insisted! She has never, never led us wrong or let us down and we have been thrilled with the sales or purchase price each time. You cannot go wrong with her!
We never asked a question that Kim didn’t have the answer to or know how to find it out, never asked her to do anything that she didn’t do promptly. She responded to unexpected events with calm professionalism and kept the deal on track. Her service didn’t stop at the contract signing: she supervised the emptying out of our condo so that in the time of pandemic my husband and I could remain safely away from the action. We feel very fortunate to have had Kim in our corner.
Kim is a pro on every level. She helped navigate us through the selling process and went above and beyond at every step. She priced our home just right and we were extremely satisfied with the result. She is very professional and easy to work with. We can’t recommend her enough!
Kim represented me 5 years ago when I purchased my condo, and she was the only person I called when my husband and I decided to sell it.
Kim made house shopping fun, and once a seller accepted my offer, she guided me through the process so I knew what to anticipate before key steps happened.
I valued her expertise even more when I became a seller. Kim minimized stress during this process, a tall order considering I was 30 weeks pregnant when we listed it for sale! She analyzed comparable properties and provided us market indices so we knew how to appropriately price our home. We lived at home while it was on the market and she candidly told us what items had to go and what could stay. The photos of our home were realistic and high-quality. She and her team hosted open houses, and she broadly advertised our home. We quickly received an offer, and she advised whether the buyer's requests were reasonable and how we should counteroffer. Once we reached mutual agreement with the buyer, she guided us through the process so we knew what to anticipate before key steps happened. Throughout the process, Kim responded promptly and thoroughly to all of our questions.
We are entertaining an out-of-state job offer, so we decided to rent for a few months while we adjust to life as a larger family. If we stay in the Seattle area and decide to buy a new home, Kim will be the only call we make.
Working with Kim was the best real estate experience I have had. Kim provided seamless, long-distance, virtual service managing the sale of my Seattle condo while I remained on the east coast. In addition to coordinating the sale, she managed all other aspects of helping me to clear out the condo. Kim was a great communicator, gave useful advice and was very knowledgeable about the Queen Anne real estate market. I would highly recommend Kim!
Kim did a great job selling my condo in March 2020
Organized; easy to work with; knowledgeable about the market. Sale only took about a month. I would highly recommend Kim.
The most important thing, to me, for a realtor is that you trust them, and I trust Kim. She had several opportunities to profit at my expense and never took any of them. Kim made sure not to pressure me and actually talked me out of places that were more likely to be bad matches.
She's also exceptionally detail-oriented and client-focused. Kim knows the Seattle market, the process, and handled things from start to finish. She did everything from scheduling and pointing out issues to the builder on the walkthrough to walking me through closing.
The Seattle real estate market is very challenging these days. Having a great full-service realtor like Kim is one the best things a buyer can do to help themselves navigate the inevitable ups and downs here.
We enjoyed working with Kim as she was responsive, personable and very understanding that a move is a big life change. We appreciated her expertise in our area and the willingness to walk with us through the entire buying process. Highly recommend!
Kim was our realtor for our first home purchase in Magnolia. She had in depth knowledge of all the Seattle neighborhoods, helping us determine where we wanted to focus on looking. As first time home buyers, she walked us through the entire process in detail and answered all of our questions. She ensured we stayed on schedule through escrow, and created a very helpful calendar for us to track each milestone. She is very professional and made the closing process as seamless as possible. We would recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy in the Seattle area!
Kim is the ultimate professional. Each and every meeting with her was well planned for a solid business reason. She is always prepared and obviously well educated with up to date research and facts.
We trusted her projections for the correct listing amount and timing. We were NOT disappointed! She is accurate with planning and always kept us up to date with proper timing and expectations. She created a personal calendar for us that was fantastic and used daily! With all her business dealings; she remains calm under pressure, highly ethical, and is quite personable.
Kim brought a calm and cool demeanor that put us at ease from the moment we met her. Her expertise of the area gave us confidence that we were preparing our house to maximize our chances of getting top dollar. She took charge of the process, clearly communicated the steps along the way, and actually did what she said.
We highly recommend Kim and would absolutely use her again in the future.
I can offer both a personal and market assessment of Kim's work.
Personally, Kim brings the experience and resources to both bring your house to the market in the most optimal way AND to deal with the unexpected, unwelcome curve balls that are part of selling a home. She was on top of every detail and closed the loop on each one. She helped me through some difficult decisions with grace, humor, and a range of possible outcomes, even though some of them would not have been in her interest.
From a market POV, 3 houses on my street went on the market the same week. Mine is the only one that closed in the first 45 days.
My experience with Kim was fantastic. She went above and beyond to help me find exactly what I was looking for. From searching for a home to putting an offer to closing, I am very thankful for all of Kim’s help throughout the buying process.
Kim has helped various members of our extended family search for, buy, and sell five homes in Seattle during the past 15 years. Every experience has turned out well because she has understood what was important to us, gave us good counsel in setting our expectations, and executed the purchase or sale with careful attention to detail.
Some transactions can be unexpectedly complicated and lengthy, and we had two such experiences. Kim kept on top of everything throughout. She remained upbeat and supportive. We were happy with the outcomes.
It has been delightful to work with Kim, and we give her our unreserved endorsement.
