If you need a Realtor or absolutely any kind of real estate advice, Kimberly McLaughlin is who you want! She is professional, knowledgeable, hard-working, responsive, and top-notch in every regard! Not all real estate agents are created equal and having Kimberly on your side means you will be on the winning side in any transaction (buy or sell)! We had listed our home for sale with another agent and had been on the market for over eight months with nothing to show for it. We were losing hope. Thankfully, we found Kimberly! Not only did she tell us not to lower our asking price, but using her industry knowledge, networks, and great marketing, we received multiple offers and sold our home at FULL asking price within 2 weeks!!! She was amazing to work with and paid attention to all the details from marketing to negotiations to facilitating closing. She really is top in her industry! Our only mistake was not calling her sooner!

April 2017

We were in a bind. We had our house suddenly sold to a cash buyer who wanted us out in 2 weeks. We are seniors, and don't move quickly. Kimberly, who was not our realtor in the sale, had homes lined up for us within a day. We found our home and moved into that home two weeks later. Kimberly moves mountains to help her clients, and her dedication is very strong. We have now referred her to our daughter who is also blown away by the rock Kimberly truly is. Best realtor we have ever had!

Pim and Ilonka

Kim was the key element in getting us a home. She guided us through the process, made sure we understood everything and always went that extra step. She knew we were first time home buyers, and helped us navigate not only the purchasing and negotiation process but literally almost every step along the way. She never pushed us or tried to put us out of our comfort zone. The Austin area market is an intense one and she helped us ultimately get our amazing new home! She also helped with things she did not have to, like when we wanted to get a quote on putting in a new floor but neither of us could be there, she went and was there for the contractor to give us their bid. That is not in her job description, but she is the kind of person who wants to know that not only did she help you get a house but that she got us our home. She even looked over our closing documents with us to make sure we understood them, again that is more the job of the title company and mortgage broker. She made sure our mortgage broker was ready to fund the loan the minute the papers were signed. I feel like I am forgetting so much, because there was so much that she did. At the end of the process having someone as knowledgeable, helpful, and protective of us was the thing that made this process manageable. Thanks to Kim we have our home!

Jacqui & Mike

I used her services to purchase my home about two years ago. The seller was incredibly unpleasant and she handled him well - far better than I would have. The deal wouldn't have happened without her. She handles the leasing on my rental property and makes that completely seamless too. I have referred her to several friends and she has taken great care of them - they've all raved about her when they finished the transaction. I never hesitate to send my friends to Kimberly.

Lee

Kimberly is one of the best realtors in Austin. I've known her for several years and when we decided to look for investment property, I immediately called her. She is seasoned, knowledgeable, organized, detail-oriented, time-conscious and her insight is invaluable. While she is personable and outgoing, she is also very business-like (having been in the corporate world in the past) and this was perfect for working with my "corporate" husband. I've recommended her to others confidently and she is now the listing agent for my daughter's home in Central Austin. She is the ultimate real estate professional.

Rochelle

Kimberly was our Realtor when we were looking to buy a house. She showed us many options and knew the area very well. She was wonderful, flexible with us, friendly and fun, yet very professional! She made the home-buying process much easier!

Anonymous, Zillow Review

My husband and I were referred to Kimberly through two of our friends, who had also used her services to buy each of their first homes in the Austin area. We weren't knowledgeable about real estate at all, but Kimberly walked us through the home-buying process in terms we could understand, and held our hand throughout the experience. She was friendly and informative, and we consider ourselves very lucky to have had her guidance from start to finish.

Elissa and Walt

Kim went above and beyond in helping me not only to sell my house but to get it prepared to sell as well. After my husband's death, taking care of everything was a huge and overwhelming process; Kim made the real estate portion of that process simple and expedited with a good awareness of the market and what would be needed to achieve a quick sale for the maximum price. She was truly a lifesaver during one of the worst times of my life.

Anne Coleman

Our experience working with Kimberly was extremely rewarding. I inherited a very small and dated house from my mother. Kimberly, knowing the sentimental attachment I had to our home was quite sensitive to our needs. She did everything it took to get the house in show condition and found the perfect buyers. My wife and I strongly recommend Kimberly McLaughlin to everyone.

Reagan and Eileen

Kimberly went above and beyond to find us a beautiful house that fit our needs. She really listened to what we wanted in a home and location and when we narrowed our scope she was flexible and accommodating. Home buying/putting down offers can be time sensitive and she made sure that we got all the necessary paperwork in and set us up for success. I had no previous experience with home buying, and Kimberly took the time to educate me and asked me the right questions so that I could find a place that will fit my lifestyle and family for years to come. On top of all that - she is a wonderful person, so working with her is a pleasure and takes the stress out of home buying. Good luck in your search!

Diana

Kim was awesome in helping me to buy my first home! She was extremely patient and walked me through the process step by step. I would recommend her to anyone.

Raven Harris

Kimberly's marketing expertise is top-notch. I hired her after my house had seen little action in the four months it had been on the market. She sold it in a matter of days. She is now helping me find a new house and I couldn't have high enough praise for her.

Kim

She was great. Our house had been listed for eight months and would not sell. We hired Kimberly and the house was sold in 20 days. Kimberly and her team were awesome.

Stuart and Jo

I have known Kimberly as a Realtor since 2009. She has helped me sell my house in 2011 in Steiner Ranch and also helped us with new home buying process in 2014. She conducts business with exceptional professionalism, very candid with customers on pros, cons and does her best in aligning home features and customer requirements.

She was with us through the building/design process, recommending options that add value and guiding us what can be added now versus later with the contractors that saved us money.

She keeps her customers/clientele in the loop regarding market trends and always there to help even at short notice. Really glad to have had her as a Realtor!

Naren Chilukuri

Kimberly made the experience of buying my house easy. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the buying process. She was there every step of the way to make sure I understood what was going on, what my options were, and what I needed to do next. She did an excellent job with negotiating the price. If I'm ever again in the market for property in Austin I'll definitely use Kimberly.

Jeff

Top notch Realtor that is patient, motivated and knowledgeable. She helped us narrow down our search and went above and beyond to help us find what we were looking for in Austin.

David and Stephanie

She knows her stuff! Kimberly really understands Austin real estate, and she immediately grasped what we wanted and needed. She is incredibly warm and responsive, and her knowledge of the process from beginning to end was impressive. I recommend her whenever I can!

Mark and Melissa

This was the smoothest real estate transaction we have ever had. Kimberly does her homework! She clearly conveys all the information in order to set realistic expectations so there will be no surprises. We met and told her what we wanted from the sale of our house and she never lost sight of our goal. Kimberly worked for us, not the buyers. She never once tried to sway us to take an offer or compromise just to make the sale. She is very professional and made sure closing was very smooth. I highly recommend Kimberly.

Robin and Jim

We had a complicated deal with many plates spinning at once. Multiple lots were offered for sale, there was a contingent purchase and an investment property exchange. Kimberly navigated all of this with grace. She kept an ever changing deal in clear focus and followed through to closing. Her timing was so responsive that we closed on our replacement property a month earlier than expected.

Bruce and Joanlys

Kimberly goes the extra mile in every aspect of her service. She is the consummate professional and outworks anyone in her field. You can't go wrong with her.

Raif

Kim is like a friend of our family. She originally helped my daughter find a house a few years ago. Now she helped me find my home. I am very pleased with Kim. If I decide to buy another home, Kim will be my agent. She is very patient. She put up a lot with my highs and lows. I kept getting buyers remorse. But at the end, she assured me that I made the right decision. She aided me in finding a financing company. Kim was working with me for 3 years. I have one other daughter who will use Kim when she is ready to find a house. I sold my home within one month after listing it with Kim. I received a cash offer for my home. Please, if you need an honest and caring Realtor, Kim is the one.

Barbara

Kimberly was very well informed, helpful, and had all her ducks in a row. She never wasted one minute of our time showing us houses that didn't meet our criteria or price range. She handled difficult people very effectively. Very professional. I hold her in the highest regard, both professionally and personally.

David and Tish

Kimberly was awesome to work with. She came out and showed me a home at 9 pm with little notice. She helped me with repair quotes. During the inspection, she even went under the house with a flashlight to check things out. Very professional and a great personality!

Troy

Kimberly was very professional and great to work with. She spent time individually with me and my daughters to find the right place. She educated us about different areas and what we should look for. She provided the self-service tools we needed to help narrow our choices.

Jerrod

Kimberly helped my family list, sell and find a new home. She was great. We had the best experience with her. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and helped us negotiate a great price on the home we purchased. We also were able to sell our house within 24 hours at full price.

One thing we would call out is her responsiveness. She kept us informed and was in touch every step of the way. This combined with her service really set her apart from other Realtors. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their house.

Amy and John

We moved from Houston to Austin in 2010. At first, we were interested in moving only if we could sell our current house at a reasonable price, and we listed it just to explore the market. We were surprised when it sold the first week, but suddenly we were in a hurry to find a home in the Austin area. We had very specific desires in terms of the type of house and type of neighborhood and my wife worked extensively with Kimberly, visiting quite a few houses in a short time. Being busy with work I only visited the few that passed my wife's initial screening. In just a couple of busy months, they located a great house in a great neighborhood and we successfully made the purchase and move. This would not have been possible without a lot of hard work by Kimberly. She earned every cent of this commission twice over. Throughout the endeavor, I was impressed with her knowledge, research, and general level of preparedness. We have bought and sold several houses over the last 25 years and Kimberly was easily the most skilled real estate agent we have ever worked with.

Kevin and Mary

Kimberly was fantastic and helped us find the perfect house. We were moving from out of town and didn't know much about Austin neighborhoods and she found the absolute perfect home for us. The longer we're here, the more we realize just how lucky we are to have had Kimberly's guidance. Highly recommend!

Christian and Kelli

Kimberly sold our home in Austin just a few years ago with outrageous results, only on the market 45 days, received multiple offers and sold for more than expected! How, Kimberly. She not only marketed our home perfectly but negotiated carefully and thoughtfully with our needs in mind. Her knowledge of the Austin market outshines most, and the way she guides you through the process is amazing! We will be moving back to Austin soon and know exactly who to call, and you should too!

Jack and Amy

Kimberly helped us sell our home and purchase a new home. Our home sold in 2 days and Kimberly was able to negotiate 5% off the asking price of our new home. We are grateful to Kimberly and she will certainly represent us in future real estate transactions.

Beau and Karen

I have known Kimberly for over 20+ years, and her integrity and work ethic is outstanding. She assisted my family in buying our dream home as well as selling another house and we had smooth sailing throughout the process. She is very motivated, personable and very sharp. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kimberly for anybody looking for a reputable Realtor that stands out from the rest.

John and Donna

We had one of those "hard to sell" high-end properties in a down market. Kimberly led us into an escrow within two weeks and did what other agents only promised to do. We highly recommend Kimberly for any property you are considering selling.

Bob and Ruth

Kimberly helped me purchase a condo in Austin. She made the process easy. She is very professional. I would highly recommend her. She was always available and extremely responsible. She was well prepared and knowledgeable.

Marta

Kimberly went above and beyond any expectations we had for a Realtor. We were trying to relocate from Houston to Austin, had each recently divorced, and were embarking on a new journey. We began making monthly trips in April 2009 just to get a feel for the area, the market, and what kind of property we were looking for. Kimberly showed us the whole array of options, taught us about the various areas of Austin and helped us tremendously in defining and refining our priorities as a couple "starting over" and buying their first house together. She was warm and considerate, always extremely organized and got to "know us" in a way that really helped us focus on the best options considering our various constraints. By early September, she found us the perfect property, handled all the negotiations for us expertly and we had a seamless closing.

John and Kris

Kimberly McLaughlin is an exceptional agent! We moved from our home state to Austin and she helped make the transition much smoother and worry-free. We met her on our 2nd trip to Austin. Months later, we began another home search. We gave her a time crunch of only 5 days to view dozens of homes all over Austin, North, South, East & West. She was a trooper going above and beyond. She searched the homes with our criteria and within those 5 days, we had 3 possible homes that met our criteria. She was fantastic in representing us as buyers, again going above and beyond. She also arranged for the closing close to us in our home state. After the sale, she was dedicated to meet our needs and address our concerns during the time between the closing and our move-in date over a month later. She secured our new home and checked in several times. She helped us in so many ways, including being at the home to receive an appliance delivery prior to our move date. Turning lights on for nighttime security as well as adjusting the thermostat when temperatures came close to freezing. Again, as an agent, she goes above and beyond and gave us peace of mind to feel secure our home would be move in ready all around. She was so kind as to have the carpets steam cleaned prior to moving in. Our family would highly recommend Kimberly with 5-star ratings in all categories! We had never been represented by a real estate agent like Kimberly before. She is one of a kind and genuinely enjoys her profession!
