"Kim was excellent throughout the entire home selling process. We needed a quick sale and to achieve top dollar, and she achieved all of that for us! She was always responsive and went above and beyond to handle many of the little details throughout the process from handling inspection and appraisal appointments, and many inquiries from the buyers side. All in all it was a seamless process and we'd use Kim again in the future."



"My husband and I used Kimberly Ehler in 2010 to buy our first home, and although we are not planning to move anytime soon, already know we will use her when the time comes to sell and find our next one. My review is only from a 1st-time home-buyer's point of view, but I do know she works with many more experienced clients as well.

Kim has a talent for putting the 1st-time home-buyer at ease. She listened to every single important requirement for what we were looking for, and then produced those items + more in the listings which she showed us. What really makes her stand apart from the pack is her attention to detail and sincere care for finding what would make us the happiest in the long run. An example of this is when we were looking at two similar units, but one was an english garden, while the other was the floor above it. The garden was in our price range, but the 2nd floor unit was above our price range. One thing that 1st time home-buyers don't always think about, is that someday you will be trying to sell what you are buying, and gardens can be difficult to sell, because few people want to live on the ground level in a city condo building. With Kim's advice, we decided to try and negotiate for the 2nd floor unit, which turned out to have a very motivated seller, and a price that was a bit inflated. In the end, we were able to get the 2nd floor unit within our price-range, and are still happily enjoying a condo that is truly perfect for us. We could not be happier with the help and service we received from Kim.

From start to finish, Kim was the best that we could have chosen to work with. I truly appreciated her candidness and sincere care and attention to the details important to us. I suppose it can't hurt to add that she gives awesome unique-to-you house-warming gifts also! I recommend Kim to anyone and everyone I meet who is looking to buy or sell in the city of Chicago or suburbs (she knows both areas very well). She's the best!"



"I have worked with Kim as a client as well as when I became an agent. She knows more about everything real estate in Chicago than most people I know. She not only has been an excellent and successful agent for 10+ years but also an investor and landlord herself. You can't ask for much better in terms of a total package agent. If you want someone that WILL explain all this to you and find you an amazing place, Kim is your person."


"Kim was very professional and knowledgeable but also kind and considerate. She took care of everything and made this whole process a breeze. We had an offer in before we were listed on the MLS. The inspection was a few days later then the earnest money in right after that. It could not have been easier. I’m so grateful to have had Kim by my side through this process."



"Kimberly was incredible! She was able to get us above listing price for our condo and brought in tons of prospective buyers. She is responsive, professional and incredibly knowledgeable of the the Chicago real estate market! She made selling my condo easy, quick and hassle free. Thanks for everything Kim!"



"Kim found the exact property we were looking for. I am confident that no one else would have found this property without her network. Awesome experience. Thanks Kim."



"Kim always went the extra mile to help us in the sale of our condo. She is also working with us in our search for a new home. I have great confidence in her ability to assess both the current value, and the potential resale value of a piece of property. We had a great experience with Kim as our broker."



"Kim was a pleasure to work with and really went above and beyond to help us close. I would highly recommend her to anyone."



"Choosing Kim to sell our investment property was the best decision we ever made with regard to our property. She went above and beyond what we expected out of a realtor and we will use her again and again."



"We have been working with Kim for eight years and she is simply the best agent in the city - smart, tenacious, and strategic. If you are looking for someone who knows how to market and close deals, call Kim!"



"Kim is a fantastic broker. I have worked with a handful of brokers over the years on purchases and sales and she is the best of the bunch, by far. She looks out for the interests of her clients and is patient in making sure the right deal is in place for her client. I look forward to working with her again."



"Kim is the BEST! I had never bought a home before and Kim had helped a friend of mine with their purchase of a condo and loved her, so I reached out. I will never use another agent! She was so patient with me and all my questions when it came to purchasing a home. I also used her when it was time to sell and she was able to sell my condo before it even had a chance to be listed. She has a knack for knowing what people want and what they need and that makes her the perfect agent. You will be in good hands with her, I recommend Kim to all of my friends and can't wait to use her again when purchasing my next home."



"Kim recently represented us in the sale of our condo as we prepared to move out of state. We cannot stress enough how much she helped us by making this such an efficient, streamlined process. Working with Kim and selling our condo was by far the easiest part of our move! She met with us prior to listing to help discuss any staging or repair priorities, and her advice was invaluable. Kim has a professional, highly skilled team working with her and she was able to produce amazing quality photos of our condo and gave us a very realistic idea of the current market and the asking price we should consider. Our condo ended up selling the first day it was listed, while other units in our building were listed for a much longer time period and ultimately sold for a lower price. Kim made the negotiation and inspection processes so easy for us and delivered professional, quality work the entire time. We expected to receive great service based on Kim's prior reviews, and she exceeded our expectations. We would absolutely recommend her to any of our friends in the future. Thank you, Kim!"



"Kimberly was amazing to work with. We looked at park place tower two years ago when I was looking for rentals. At the time I chose to rent in a different building. When I was ready to purchase, Kim was sure to show me many units in park Place tower and we were able To find my new home! Kim is a true professional and always has her clients’ best interest at heart. She sent me many properties from Which to choose on a daily basis and could almost read my mind when it came to units I would love or not love. She’s thorough, confident, and very attentive. In addition she has a vast network of professionals who help to make the closing process easier and calmer. On top of all of this, Kim has a great sense of humor which made the entire process fun and engaging."

"Three years ago we were looking for a condo to purchase for our daughter in the Chicago area. Not being familiar with Chicago, we had no clue as to where to start. Kim helped guide us to locations that were suitable for our daughter's needs. She went above and beyond what is expected of a realtor. She not only became a big sister to our daughter, she became a friend to us. Fast forward three years later: The daughter has moved on and it's time to sell the condo. Within less than a week we had three offers. By guiding us to the right location the first time around, the resale of the condo was a breeze. We will be forever grateful to Kim for her expertise, guidance and friendship. Thank you, Kim. We love you!"



"Kim is an excellent realtor, with great advice and opinions. She sold our house in 4 days by using smart staging, photos and being open and honest with all of the agents and brokers interested. She's a top rated Chicagoland broker and suggest you use her to sell your home!"



"Kimberly Ehler is a true professional! We have been working with Kim for over seven years and highly recommend her. We sold our condo within days of listing and received multiple offers. We have purchased two properties with Kim. Due to Kim's dynamic approach we have not lost out on any properties we have put offers on. If you want a real estate broker who will get you results, Kimberly Ehler is your woman"



"Working with Kim made the daunting processes of simultaneously selling a condo and buying a house much easier and less stressful. Kim took the time to explain the intricate details of the selling process: from how much to list our condo to giving advice for staging and keeping clean for showings, Kim was involved and with us all the way. On the buying end, Kim gave us the great advice to attend Open Houses, in addition to her taking us to scheduled showings, which helped us narrow down the area in which we wanted to buy. Brilliant! Through inspection and contracts and everything in between, Kim has been available for our many, many questions and has answered with complete professionalism. When we have had concerns, Kim has advocated for us. Supportive all the way! We have found a home in which to raise our family, and I am so happy to have had Kim lead us through this adventure. Kim has an eye for finding the "right" house. She helped us consider the many angles of looking at the right home to purchase because she cares about each individual, couple, or family she represents. Her care and expertise both come through and we would work with her again in a second!"



"Kim is fantastic- smart, savvy, and she gives excellent advice. We have worked with her twice and referred her to all our friends, many of whom have worked with her as well. She's great with communication, negotiation, and I always knew we were in great hands."

"Kim handled what turned out to be a very difficult sale with skill. When problems arose, she was right there to work through them with the buyers and their agent. When an issue with my association arose, she had the experience to know exactly what that meant to our negotiation strategy. She spent hours showing the unit and in open houses. I cannot commend or thank her enough! I would recommend Kim to any friend or family member looking to buy or sell in the Chicago area. Thanks Kim!""



""Working with Kim is like working with your best friend. She is honest, attentive and truly gets to know her clients needs whether they are looking for or selling a property. She always had time for us, answered our questions, gave recommendations and made the whole experience effortless. I can't recommend her enough.”"


"Kim Ehler is the most fantastic agent to work with. Not only did Kim sell my last condo in a day, yes, ONE day, but she found me my dream home. Unfortunately, we had a few hurdles with the purchase of my new home but I never once worried about getting to the finish line as Kim was 5 steps ahead every step of the way. She thought of everything, understood EXACTLY what I was looking for and found it for me. My only regret is not having known Kim when I bought my first home. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional realtor who knows Chicago real estate LIKE A PRO, Kim is who you want and NEED to work with."


"Kim is the BEST! She was so great when I bought my first condo in Chicago that I of course reached out to her when it was time to sell. She has such a strong pulse on the Chicago market as well as a community of resources, that my place was sold before it even had a chance to get on MLS. I can't express my appreciation enough to Kim for how patient she was with me and my lack of knowledge when it comes to the whole buying and selling process. She took fantastic care of me and whenever a friend mentions buying or selling, I always point them in her direction. She'll be my first phone call when it's time to buy again!"

At the same time, she was extremely flexible when it came with showing us potential new condos throughout the city, always quick with reassurance and a positive attitude.

Regardless, the end result was great and I really enjoyed working with you along the way.Take care,Paul"

"Kim was very responsive to my questions and very aggressive in getting my condo listed and we got a contract on it in 3 weeks! I think it was in big part to her commitment to holding open houses and showings. She was very helpful through the entire process all the way through the closing."


"Being unfamiliar with the Chicago market, and being from outside the area, it was critical to us that we had a knowledgeable and committed agent to help us navigate the buying process from start to finish. Kim was extremely helpful, very responsive to our endless questions, and clearly knew her stuff. She worked to understand our needs and wants and always had our best interests in mind. We would not hesitate to recommend Kim to anyone looking for a dedicated and conscientious agent who is willing to go the extra mile. Not only was Kim our realtor, she became our friend. We never doubted Kim had our best interest at heart and we felt we could trust her. We will definitely use Kim as our realtor when it is time to sell. Kim, we cannot thank you enough!Denise, Brad and Sydney"


"Kim is an excellent agent - knowledgeable in the market, honest and proactive. I would recommend her to anyone looking to rent or buy."


"Kim was very knowledgeable, courteous and most importantly responsive. She dealt with every issue as it arose swiftly and to completion. We moved from out of state and she handled many details that an agent might not normally have responsiblity for such as final walkthru, which greatly simplified an otherwise difficult and stressful transition. I would defintiely recommend Kim to anyone and plan on using her again if we ever need to."


"Kim was very patient and did an excellent job"


"In the mass of mediocre real estate agents here in Chicago, only a handful are really good. Time and time again, I've run into many really good agents at @Properties. The agents that I've come acrosss at @Properties agents carry themselves with integrity. @Properties has some sort of "secret sauce" that makes their agents really good. I'm not quite sure what it is.Personally, one of the most outstanding real estate agents at @Properties that I have had the pleasure to work for me is Kimberly Ehler. Kimberly's work ethic and character are commendable. I am very pleased with her work.She will definitely go the extra mile for you and keep your best interest at heart. I highly recommend her if you're buying or selling property."


"Kim Ehler got the job done. We were incredibly pleased with her energy and knowledge and would work with her again."


"Kimberly really took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for as well and providing inquiry and suggestions that I would not have thought of. I was a first-time buyer and Kimberly really took the time to explain what was happening; when, where, and how. Any gaps in communication where sluiced by her, with her responses returning in a prompt manner. Kimberly's background work was so good that I chose the VERY first place she showed me. She did not waste any time in showings that she knew I was not interested in. She made the first time buyer experience as positive as could be expected. I will use her in future and I would recommend her to any of my friends."



"Kim was fantastic. She is honest, straightforward, professional, and clearly dedicated to her profession."



"Kim was fantastic. She helped us negotiate on the price for the property and was able to knowledgably answer our questions every step of the way. She was clear, honest, and a pleasure to work with. My husband and I have already recommended her to our friends."
