First of all, she gave us excellent advice when we sold our home in 2016 and I am certain that without her expertise we would never have sold that property so quickly nor received such a high price. She knew exactly what we needed to do to get our home in great shape for potential buyers and gave us a detailed to-do list to work on at our first meeting. She has excellent contacts with reliable service people, something that really helped when it came time to address some issues that came up during the inspection of the home we sold. When it came time to buy, she was very patient with us, understood our constraints and what we were looking for, was able highlight important attributes of various properties that we viewed and was readily available to view properties at any time. Kim was also extremely responsive in both of our transactions. She had answers to all of our questions amazingly quickly and was willing to go the extra mile to get additional information, either to help us make a decision about buying, or to find someone to complete work on our home when we were getting ready to sell. Finally, Kim has a great personality and a very positive approach to handling all the little snags that go along with real estate transactions. Buying and selling a home are both very emotional and stressful situations but we could always count on Kim to calmly take care of issues and move the process forward. I would not hesitate to recommend Kim Kelly-Lerner and Baird & Warner to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a property.
! If there is any way I can help you, please do not hesitate to call. I would love to talk to any potential client as a reference for you. You have gone above and beyond for us. To be in Texas and have a Realtor a thousand miles away, that you trust completely, is invaluable!! ~ Bill & Annette, Naperville
Made our experience easy and painless. We had all the confidence in her. She was easy to talk to you and quick to respond to our questions. She is an expert realtor. Will definitely be recommending her to our friends!
The list of all you did to help us is long. . .longer than I probably even know. The time you put into helping us find the right home and sell ours, the stress you put up with, dealing with the moods and personalities of all involved, the research you did over and over, driving all over carnation to meet us, identifying the positives and negatives at every turn, calling on homes with such persistence, and so on. However, what I most appreciate is that once we learned about our financing house of cards and tight timeline with my husband's employment, rather than give up on us, you became more determined despite knowing it could mean loss of time, efforts, work and money on your end. Yes, we noticed all this. You are one in a million - I will recommend you to everyone buying or selling a home I come across. I consider you a friend and expect you to stay in touch! =) Sincerely, CN & CN
She's a smart, thorough problem solver that anyone selling their home needs on their team. She possesses many strengths, but perhaps her greatest are the support professionals she brings with her to help solve your problems; be it a painter, carpet cleaner or attorney, she's hand picked each and every one. She also excels exceptionally at the staging and photography of your home. The importance of this step is often overlooked, but that's one of many strengths that separates Kim from others - she understands the value of staging and how the Internet impacts the number of showings you will receive. After all - showings bring Buyers! I personally recommend Kim to anyone needing her service, and will use her again if the need arises because I know we'll be in good hands!
I spent a couple of weeks looking myself and was overwhelmed by the numerous short sales and foreclosures. I met Kim at an open house and asked for her help. She was a great resource to have on my side. In less than a month, I was making an offer on a house. Her knowledge about the market and eye for houses that met my wish list, allowed me to focus on the homes that I would be interested in. She walked me through each step, gave me advice on what to look out for and help me learn about what was important for me to have in my new home. Kim kept me in the loop through the home inspection process and was a great help coordinating the final steps with the various parties needed to complete the closing process. I truly felt that I had someone on my side. I respect her passion for her work and the commitment she makes to each client. I strongly recommend Kim to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. If the need comes up again, for me to purchase or sell a home, she will be the first person I call. Sincerely, JDE (Plainfield)
Your patience and follow up say a lot about your professionalism and your dedication to your work. I enjoyed catching up with you on your calls to us and I can't say enough about the impression your friendliness left on us, you stand out from the rest! Jeremy & Robyn, Oswego
She understood what we wanted, educated us about the process, and was available for for every question, no matter what or when. She provided advice based on her own experiences and truly became a friend to us.
Kim Kelly Lerner is fantastic! After struggling to sell our home for more than three years, we met Kim. In an unlikely time in history, selling a house is not the easiest. We contacted Kim and she outlined how she would market our home and counseled us as to the best price at which to list it. Within a relatively short time of signing our listing agreement with her, we had an offer and acceptance. Kim's tenacious attitude and dedication kept us informed continually and coordinated everything from start to finish, with not only selling our house, but was diligent in helping us find our next home. The difference was Kim's expertise and her network of real estate professionals. We will use her again when the time comes to buy and with great pleasure recommend her to all friends and neighbors who want a person who's dedicated, professional and one who made our family able to start a new life elsewhere. Thanks so much Kim, NS & PS (Sugar Grove, Naperville)
I can only say that she was amazing helping us and always made excellent recommendation. Thank you Kim!
I would definitely recommend her services to friends .
Thank you so much for your insight, attention to detail and for working so fast to help us find the perfect home for us. I still can't believe we looked at more than 30 homes in three weekends! We look forward to having you over at the new home once we move in, and thanks again for everything! ~Christopher & Melissa, Naperville
From our first phone call until the day we closed (and even since!), Kim was always available to answer any questions we had. She listened to all of our wants and needs for a house and helped up put a vision into each house we looked at. Kim has an awesome personality and plenty of patience as my wife and I were balancing our busy schedules with house hunting on weeknights and weekends. Ultimately, we found our perfect home and could not be happier with our time spent with Kim. To top it all off, Kim has many contacts in the area for when the time comes for any renovations, additions, etc.! If we ever move again (hopefully not for many years), we will absolutely use her, and we will recommend her to any of our friends, family and new neighbors who want to work with someone as dedicated and passionate about her work as Kim is. Thank you for everything, Kim!~ Adam and Emma
Kim has such a gift of communication and compassion - she truly puts all her energy into making sure the selling and buying of your home is an enjoyable experience. If you are looking for a great Realtor in the Chicago land area, please use Kim - you will be glad you did. JD & AD (Aurora, Plainfield)
She advised us well on how to prepare our home, she marketed it well with Baird & Warner's large presence, and she navigated somewhat tricky waters when we received two offers. She was a pleasure to work with throughout, and was very patient with us when we were fearing the worst.
