I recently worked with Kim to find a home, and was very impressed with her professionalism, integrity, and willingness to walk me step-by-step through what can be a difficult process of buying a home. Kim is a voice of reason in an industry that can be very crazy, a calm presence through a process that can sometimes become frantic, and a knowledgeable guide in what can be a very complicated and confusing process. Working with Kim, I always felt like I had a thorough understanding of each step in the process. I always felt like I knew what to do and what choices to make. Kim's advice through the whole process was invaluable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.

Kim was a great agent to work with. She worked hard to find homes that fit our "wish list" items and answer questions we had. Kim also gave helpful suggestions and advice when we were selling our own home.

Kim was/is amazing. My wife and I couldn't be happier with her help. She was very patient with our inexperience and questions. We had wanted to purchase a home in our area so our children could attend the same school, Kim kindly suggested some other areas where the , resale value would be better (too many expired listings in our area) and we could get more bang for our buck. She took us to a number of homes, even leaving her long weekend camping trip. patient, kind, insightful, honest and funny
Alison M.(Buyer, 2015)
Kim was very professional, approachable and helpful while we were looking at homes and was very accommodating to our schedule as we had a short window to look at homes before buying as we were from out of town. She was very helpful in pointing out concerns she noted with homes we looked at, and was honest in helping us to learn the best neighborhoods in the area.
Patti M.(Buyer, 2015)
Kim was tremendously helpful when I was looking for a new home. It was getting very close to my closing date and I wasn't having any luck finding something that I liked. When I became ill and had to cancel multiple showings, Kim even went to the list of houses I'd asked to see and made notes on each of them for me. She really paid attention to what I was looking for and was able to help me sort through the properties that were for sale. Ultimately, she found the property that I ended up purchasing. Every day, I think about how perfect it is and about how much I look forward to many years in my new home! I would highly recommend Kim. She was a great support.
Amanda B.(Buyer, 2015)
I would heartily recommend Kim to anyone in the market to buy a house. My husband and I were first time home-buyers - which meant we needed a lot of help! We were incredibly impressed with Kim because she was not even our primary realtor. Kim was serving as a back-up while our realtor was on vacation for a week....and we just happened to fall in love with our first home that very week. Kim jumped in with enthusiasm and help as she navigated us through putting an offer in on the house - she was incredible! I would recommend Kim without hesitation to family and friends looking for a trustworthy and helpful realtor.
Kimberly E.(Buyer, 2015)
I met Kim during a viewing and knew immediately she would be an excellent agent for purchasing our first home. Kim is appropriately critical, extremely knowledgable and I'm continuously amazed at her hard work and diligence. One word that describes Kim is "integrity" - she has always acted with our best interest as her top priority. We were never pressured to buy and Kim went out of her way to make sure we made decisions based on the available facts and information. Through Kim we found our dream home, and I've very grateful for her help and care. Kim truly loves her job and is passionate about connecting people with homes they love. A real pleasure to work with!

Since we have met with Kim, our search for a home has become an easy and pleasant task. She is very professional, prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. During the search for our home, she have kept us informed and updated on the market status and trend , and during the showings, she was always discussing all the positive and the negative issues, if any, in an open and honest manner as a member of the family. Kim gained our trust because of her unique and fair way in keeping the balance between the buyer's and seller's interests. Kim had successfully helped us to find and secure the home we wanted through her appreciated hard work, experience and professionalism. We will definitely recommend Kim for our friends whom needs her outstanding services.
RJ T.(Buyer, 2016)
Kim was a pleasure to work with and a true professional throughout the process. She was able to show us many homes that fit our criteria, as well as accommodate our schedules. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking to purchase a home, and intend on utilizing her services for any future real estate transactions.
Megan B.(Buyer and Seller, 2016)
Kim was great to work with throughout the entire buying and selling process. She did a great job listening to our feedback and provided options and homes that suited our criteria. Kim was very knowledgeable about the market and was very thorough with research and analysis on the home assessment process. She was very responsive to questions and demanding timelines and I'd highly recommend her as an agent.
Ruth O.(Seller, 2016)
Within a few minutes of talking with Kim Topp about selling my home, I knew I was in good hands. I finally found an agent who was not only extremely professional and knowledgable but also extremely understanding of my unique circumstances. Her sound advice, tips and suggestions helped me quickly sell my house for more value than I had hoped for. Working with her gave me something else that is so hard to find in any transaction of this nature – peace of mind!
Daryl S.(Buyer, 2016)
Kim was referred to me and I could not have asked for a better experience. Kim went above and beyond the typical responsibilities of an agent. In my scenario, I was residing in Calgary and looking to buy a property in Waterloo. Working remotely with Kim worked out very well and with complete ease. She was incredibly proactive, honest, responsive and went the extra mile. I ended up buying a condo unit that required extensive renovations and she combined her past designer experience in helping select tile and hardwood flooring materials and colours, interfaced with multiple renovation contractors and provided input into new bathrooms kitchen remodel and design. I would highly recommend Kim as your next agent. Daryl Scheerer
Shawn and Alanna B.(Buyer, 2016)
Kim is great! She was very helpful and informative in our search for our first house. She was able to work well under tight deadlines in the fast-moving market. We saw one house about 10 hours before the offer deadline and Kim helped us put together our first offer and submit it in time. That offer wasn't accepted (we were one of five offers), but Kim's research helped us set an offer price that was extremely close to the offer that was accepted for that property. When we took a second look at another property that we were considering, Kim encouraged us to also look at other properties in the same neighbourhood and price range. Through this, we found houses that were much more suited to us and we ended up purchasing one of the others we looked at that night. The house needed some work, but Kim helped us see past that to see the value of the property. We are very happy with our new home!
Sam Q.(Buyer, 2016)
I'm more than satisfied with her performance. She is an excellent agent who is rich in knowledge and passion. She always think problems in my perspective and optimize my benefit. I finally got a very good house with a comparatively low price. That's all thanks to her effort.
Shawn and Esther V.(Seller, 2017)
Kim did an outstanding job. She was very organized and professional. Her knowledge and understanding of the market was the difference in making our experience a positive one. Just an excellent job. Thanks Kim!
Tim S.(Buyer, 2016－2017)
Kim was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. Before even becoming our agent, she took the time to explain the options to us, and was willing to work according to our schedule, even if it meant arranging for showings in the evening or on weekend mornings. She never pushed us into making decisions we were hesitant about, but was always ready to jump to work when we saw properties that we liked. We would highly recommend her.
John and Deb M.(Buyer, 2017)
To be completely transparent, Kim is a good friend of ours, so that is why we selected her to help us find a home in the Woodstock/Ingersoll area. I have personally had bad experiences in the past working with real estate agents, so it was very refreshing to work with Kim. She quickly obtained the picture of what we were looking for so only directed us to potential matches. We trusted Kim enough to take a look at some houses for us while we could not be there as we are about 1.5 hours away. Her assessment of potential houses was very similar to ours so we knew she had our best interests in mind. I also appreciated how Kim worked with other real estate agents getting us as much information as she could to that we could make an informed decision. Kim also knew what to look for when we were searching homes (foundation issues, windows, flooring, potential issues etc.) Another thing I/we really appreciated about Kim is that she didn't pressure us to do something we were not comfortable with. When we purchased a home in Ingersoll with Kim's help, she just gave us the comparables and allowed us to make the final call on what we were willing to offer. She also explained how offers and counter-offers work and what type of market we were operating in. I can't say enough good things about Kim and would highly recommend her to you. If integrity is important to you, as it was to us, give Kim a call!
