If you need a diligent, hard working, knowledgable and productive realtor...Kim Lewellen is your gal. We stumbled in to using Kim because our previous realtor referred us over when she went on maternity leave. Our stars must have been aligned because it was a home run having her services. In our demanding search, Kim managed to find us multiple homes that fulfilled what we needed. It was fun having so many beautiful options. The one we ended up buying was one she found out about that wasn’t even on MLS. I don’t remember how she did it but she either has insider scoops or is the Home Houdini. The home builder ended up taking almost a year and a half to finish our home (per their delays) and Kim stood by us that ENTIRE time keeping in touch almost weekly. Daily once things started to close in. There wasn’t a time I called Kim and she didn’t answer. Well, I think maybe once but she called back within 10minutes. We’ve talked at some pretty late hours too. There was a time she was out of town for a few days and she had her daughter emailing me to bridge the information gap while she was away. Amazing right?! My point is that Kim will treat you like family, turn over every stone to find you what you want, and be your advocate. Some of the delays with the home builder had upset me with their professionalism. I had to address them but was uncomfortable because you never want to bite the hand that feeds you. I didn’t feel like finding the workers lunch leftovers in my walls, 10years from now. So, I expressed my concerns to Kim and she quickly intervened to speak on our behalf in the most professional and ASSERTIVE way. It was SUCH a weight off our shoulders. Our price with the custom builder was a set price but I don’t doubt for a second that Kim is better than the Priceline Negotiator! We pretty much just dropped our money on the table and Kim took the wheel. She did the email exchanges, came to every appt (there were a lot over 1.5yrs), made the calls, shadowed all inspections and would literally drive to the home builders office if they weren’t responding in a timely matter. Who does that?! Kim does! This is our forever home. I don’t want to waste our money by making mistakes because we don’t plan to live anywhere else. This is it and it needs to be perfect. During all walk through and layout plans, Kim thought of little details like adding an extra hose bib at one corner of the house because two combined hoses on the other bib wouldn’t reach over to a certain point in the yard. She even noticed details during inspections that even the inspector over looked! Man did I feel safe in our decisions with Kims expertise. So, if you wondering if Kim should represent you...I say DO IT! You won’t regret it!
