"We have known Kim for many years and she has been fundamental in alleviating the stress associated with relocating to a new country and home. She has helped our family transition in several International relocations providing the necessary insights and contacts in the different markets. Her vast local and international experience help her identify the different customer needs as these relate to the local market offerings maximizing the overall search times.

Kim is a great person to be around and always willing to lend a hand way beyond the realm of her professional obligations. We will definitely contact her in our next relocation, be it with the US or overseas."

"Kim took all the stress out of my search for a new home. Her exceptional personal service went beyond the expectations of an agent. I feel very comfortable recommending her to anyone --her work speaks for itself."

"When I decided to sell my starter condo I knew Kim Korber was the right agent for me immediately. I knew that I wanted someone who was both patient and caring but also energetic and creative and Kim had all of these qualities. I was especially grateful how clearly she understood and represented me during the welcomed yet stressful event of multiple offers on the same day! Kim was confident yet friendly, firm yet respectful, and most of all was sincerely committed to my needs as the seller. The end result was a fantastic sale price and easy closing of the property. Thanks forever Kim!"
- Anne Redmond
"Kim hit the ground running when I told her I wanted to buy a new home. After focusing on a couple of neighborhoods, Kim showed me numerous single family homes, all of which were nice, but not "the one." Then Kim insisted that I look at luxury condos, even though the ability to garden was a top priority. Well, she dragged me to a penthouse with 2,500 sq. ft. of indoor space and 1,200 sq. ft. of outdoor terrace on two floors, 15 f.t. ceilings, great views, indoor parking, etc. Thank you Kim."

Commercial Building Sale
"Pensacola Properties was interested in selling a 20 unit apartment building in the Wrigleyville neighborhood. It was a great building, but with all of the problems in the mortgage market, we needed someone who knew how to market to the right kind of buy Kim accepted the challenge and sold the property for top dollar in 5 days. You are the best, Kim!"

Clients are saying:
"I was extremely impressed with Kim Korber. She was very attentive and took the time to look at more properties than I care to recall. She listened to us and when we found our "dream home" she worked tirelessly to make it happen. She handled our negotiations beautifully and got us a fair price in our mind. The complexity of the sale was something she handled professionally and allowed us to be as stress free as possible throughout. I will definitely be using her and recommending her to anyone that will listen."
