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.

benjamin hill, san rafael

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
