People Say

Rachel WEILL, San Anselmo

I have worked with Kim for years. First as a seller when she expertly consulted on repairs, handled the staging and kept me calm and confident throughout the process. Kim understands that selling a home has a lot to do with a buyer feeling emotionally connected to a place. She has great taste but she also knows how to re-imagine a home or property into something unique that feels inviting and creative. Kim also designed my kitchen remodel and is well connected to resources and contractors. Kim's advice on real estate and design is spot on. I trust her implicitly and really enjoy working with her.

We had the pleasure of working with Kim to remodel our house in San Rafael in preparation for selling. Her creative ideas really transformed the house for the better. She was also pragmatic and was careful to prioritize and recommend those improvements that would yield the largest increases in home sale value relative to the costs of those improvements....  The whole process could not have been easier for us, as she managed the entire project, coordinated all the contractors, and sourced all the materials needed for the remodel. She was always very responsive and kept us informed and involved every step of the way. I give her my highest recommendation

"The whole process could not have been easier for us"

Nancy Daly, Fairfax

We were incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Kim Baskind on the re-model and sale of our beloved home. Having owned it for 36 years, it was in need of a great deal of updating and an infusion of fresh energy.  Kim worked on this project tirelessly. She communicated with us at every turn, was sensitive when we needed to make tough decisions, and used sharp, innovative ideas. Kim's help and professionalism were invaluable, enabling a no-stress environment for all involved. In the end, our house received multiple offers and sold for $250k over our asking price! Kim was our champion, and we will be forever grateful to her, and to her delightful and hard-working team.

Michelle Bevilacqua, Owner

I've worked with Kim for probably over 10 years as a home stager for her many listings. And, as someone who has worked with countless agents, I can say that there is just no one like Kim Baskind. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to a friend or anyone selling their home.  She makes our job so much easier and working with her is truly a pleasure. The product we are able to produce, as stagers working on her listings, is above and beyond any of the listings we do with other agents.Kim truly cares. She is hard-working and follows through all the way to the end. She cares about her clients. She cares about their final result. She cares about the bottom line and she cares about creating beauty. She is always patient and professional and has a wonderful sense of humor. All of us here at The Ride Studio could not love her more.

"She cares about her clients. She cares about their final result."
