"As a first time home-buyer Kim helped us through the process and answered every single question we had, which was a LOT. She has so many contacts in the industry that she was able to recommend contractors, inspectors, lawyers, etc. She was also very responsive which made the entire process so much easier. Highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for a home!"


"Kim sold and purchased condos for us two different times several years apart She also helped our daughter find a condo. We felt she was a great advocate for us. Her list of good and honest contractors is beyond compare. Great experience because of her excellent ❤️"


"Kim was fantastic to work with as my husband and I were looking for a SFH for rent in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area. She was also very helpful and patient as we considered buying over renting. Kim was accessible, super responsive and very knowledgeable. We'd work with her again in a heartbeat!"


"Kim has been great. I would recommend her services, particularly as someone new to Chicago. She was always prompt and responsive and made the whole process go very smoothly."


"Kim is amazing - knowledgeable, energetic, organized, and extremely quick with follow ups. We started working with her when we were looking for rentals in the Chicago area. She patiently took us on several tours and made each experience enjoyable with her positive energy and market expertise. When we realized we were simply frustrated with the selection of rentals in the area, we pivoted to the home-buying process. As first time buyers with a quick timeline, we had A LOT of questions. Not only did she walk us through every step of the home buying process multiple times, but she was also always available within seconds via text or email in case we had any lingering concerns that popped up outside typical business hours. She really went above and beyond to ensure we always felt comfortable. Kim got to know us and our aesthetic really well. Ultimately, she was the one who found us a perfect property before it was listed to the public. We saw it on a Thursday, put our offer in that Saturday, and were in contract that Sunday. Four weeks and five days later - we closed with no issues because of her insightful guidance and advice along the way. Couldn't recommend highly enough!"


"Kim was a joy to work with! I found her to be more attentive and helpful than any realtor that I have worked with before. She was extremely patient showing me many different places and was really considerate, making suggestions when she thought a certain listing should be considered. She has great taste and was really helpful at weighing out the pros and cons of each building and apartment. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking for a realtor because she was attentive, professional but also just a nice, genuine person that has the best interest of her clients in mind."


"Kim was always attentive, interested, open and honest about my options throughout the process of finding a new apartment in Chicago. Kim's thoughts on locations and different buildings she'd seen before helped me make a good choice. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking for a helpful, responsive broker in the city!"


"Kim has been great. I would recommend her services, particularly as someone new to Chicago. She was always prompt and responsive and made the whole process go very smoothly."


"I worked with Kim recently to find my condo in the South Loop. She was amazing and patient with me as we made our way through my options. And, when I found "the one";, she was beyond supportive in helping me make sure that it became mine. We endured a few hiccups along the way and, while I was starting to panic, Kim was calm and reassuring - which was so very helpful to me. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a hands-on realtor who will go above and beyond to help you navigate both the market and the closing!! :-)"


"Kim is an amazing broker and I would recommend her to anyone (I actually already have!). She listened to everything I told her and her expertise was very invaluable to me as a first-time buyer. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to Chicago neighborhoods, was able to provide me with great insight/information to any questions that I had and was just an overall pleasure to work with.I cannot say enough about Kim and the experience I had with her in finding my first home."


"We had been looking for rentals with no success for six weeks when we met Kim. Frustrated with the rental market, we expressed an interest in purchasing our first home. Kim helped us realize that this was a reachable goal. She lost no time in guiding us through pre-approval and property searches. Beginning our search on Monday, we had a signed contract on a property we loved by Friday. Kim was extremely capable, proactive, and supportive throughout the process, making sure everyone had the information needed to reach each milestone. We closed six weeks later without hiccups. I'm not sure if we would have felt comfortable enough to buy our first home if it weren't for Kim. We were so happy with the job she did, we referred our friends to her and they are closing on their first home later this month."


"Kim is everything a broker should be. Kind, funny, patient and attentive to every last detail. She is a joy to work with, and we recommend her to everyone we know!!"


"Kim was wonderful to work with while searching for our rental. She was very professional, helpful and knowledgeable about the inventory in our desired areas. We would definitely work with her again!"


"Kim is awesome, efficient, made a hard process much easier, and gave us great advice on our loan process. I give her a gold star and would highly recommend her to anyone buying a first home."


"Kim was a pleasure to work with. She really cared about us finding a home that was a fit for our needs and wants. As a first time homebuyer, she made the process go as smooth as possible by staying top of the other parties involved. I would definitely recommend Kim to my friends and family."



"We were VERY satisfied with Kim's help throughout this entire process. She was great at responding promptly and managing all the moving pieces to ensure a smooth close. We would highly recommend her to our friends and family looking for a broker."


"Kim is THE best! We were looking to make our long-anticipated move back to city life after raising our family in the suburbs, and were thinking it would take some time to find our dream home. After the first time out, Kim understood my taste and targeted the subsequent showings accordingly. Not long after that, she showed us the condo that I am writing this recommendation from - with a BEAUTIFUL view of the lake, Soldier Field and Navy Pier! We wouldn't be here without Kim! Her professionalism, kindness, caring and authenticity made her a PLEASURE to work with. While we do NOT plan to move from this dream home EVER, I would HIGHLY recommend Kim to anyone in need of an AMAZING real estate agent."



"As an out of town buyer, we needed a little extra help. Kim was there for us!"


"As a first time home buyer, I could not have asked for a better broker to use. Kim was knowledgeable, friendly, and on top of every step. She was very responsive and was able to get me a great deal on my first home. If I ever purchase another home in the Chicago, Kim will be my first call."


"I would highly recommend Kim Brychel for all real estate agent needs in the Chicago area. Kim was an incredibly diligent, attentive, and expert realtor in our condo search. Without Kim my wife and I would have never found the incredible condo we did in such a short period of time. A great example of Kim's going above an beyond was her willingness to accommodate our coming in from out of town and booking some 8 showings a day when we were in town. Kim also helped us, as buyers that were new to Chicago, to understand the neighborhoods and markets though use of comps and her personal experience. Kim is the ideal realtor in her knowledge of the market, punctual and clear communication (very important in a realtor...), and friendly personality. We will, without a doubt, be using Kim for all future real estate needs and can say that I give her a high recommendation any chance I get."


"Kim is a highly professional and personable agent who excelled at helping us through every step of our first home buying experience. She took the initiative to contact us and set up listing alerts based on our MLS browsing, which was a great first impression. She was always there for anything we needed, and went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home for us. During every part of the process Kim was super easy to work with, and never made us feel uncomfortable or pressed us in any way whatsoever. She is absolutely on top of her game, and we felt 100% confident as her clients from the very first showing all the way through to the closing of our first condo. Can't recommend highly enough."


"Kim is one of the hardest working agents I've met out there! She will work hard for you and get you the results you need. Another thing I like about Kim is that she's always easily available to answer questions. Even if she doesn't know the answer herself, she will find someone who does. She's also very resourceful and has great recommendations from attorneys to mortgage agents. Overall, Kim is a blast to work with and is very personable and she will get the job done for you fast!"


"Kim is an excellent real estate agent, and I would highly recommend her. When I was originally working with Kim my intent was to buy a condo, but when I decided to rent, she was more than willing to help me find the perfect place. When I chose to buy a condo the following year, Kim was readily available and eager to help me find the perfect place. When the place I chose turned out to be a short sale, we knew there would be plenty of challenges, but Kim took them on head on, and I couldn't be happier. There were many delays that Kim needed to deal with which were not her fault (the nature of short sales), but she dealt with them professionally and knew all the right ways to keep us moving ahead. I was very impressed with her balance of professionalism and knowing how much to push the sellers agent, bank, and lawyers to keep us moving forward, without looking too aggressive and pushy. If you're looking for a real estate agent, look no further than Kim."


"Kim excelled at helping my husband and I a) figure out exactly what we wanted and b) understand what was possible in our prince range. We were moving into the area from out-of-state, so we relied heavily on her area expertise, ended up finding in awesome place in the perfect neighborhood, and all in just a couple weekends of showings. Couldn't recommend Kim more highly."


"Highly recommend our broker Kim Brychel. What a life saver! Helped us find an apt from across the country. Super responsive and attentive. Very professional. Difficult to find a good rental broker, but she is the real deal. Would definitely return to work with her when we are looking to buy."


"Kim is an extremely friendly and reliable real estate broker. She worked extremely hard to make sure that I ended up with my dream apartment even when it seemed like it might not work out. There were also a lot of hiccups in the post-lease process (not on her end) that she worked with me to solve even though technically her part was done. Kim truly made sure I was happy and well-taken care of. I have worked with other brokers in Chicago that weren't nearly as professional as her - I would highly recommend."


"I would highly recommend Kim Brychel for your real estate needs. She was extremely focused on our needs from day one and was always responsive. The process was smooth and we found exactly what we were looking for."
