"Kim is an extremely fun, talented, and eager to work individual. She puts all her focus on you and your needs in order to complete the job. After interviewing multiple agents throughout the durham region, we found that Kim wasn't all about the numbers, she was about the client. Her bubbly personality and dedication to us and our home were the perfect fit. I never felt like she was working for us, she felt like she was apart of the family. Her sense of style and ideas gave us inspiration for our new home in regards to design and placement of things. We are proud to say that Kim Alldread sold our home and we would recommend her anytime. Thanks to a recommendation from an old high school friend, we will be sure to pass her along to more friends and family."

"Our experience with Kim was fantastic! She took the time to help us understand what we needed to do in order to sell our home. She worked closely with us, and we managed to sell after our first showing. Kim made us feel as though we were her number one priority during the selling and buying process. She paid close attention to detail and to our wants and needs. She found our second home in no time! I would encourage any buyer or seller to work with Kim!"

"My husband and I hired to Kim to be our real estate agent and never expected for her to become such a great friend. Kim took the time to get to know us personally and learn about our lives so that she would be able to do her job to the very best of her ability. Kim knew she had found us the perfect home for our growing family before we had even seen it! Kim sold our home very quickly with her wonderful marketing techniques. The photos, virtual tour and pamphlets of our home were the nicest I've seen. Kim was so patient with us while we made our decisions and was always available to answer our questions and soothe our nerves. Kim is not only a great agent, she is also a great source of information and has wonderful contacts to ensure that your move is as easy as possible. Kim put us in contact with a home stager, a photographer and a mortgage broker. All of which were wonderful to work with. We love Kim and would highly recommend her for your real estate needs. Thank so much Kim!!

"My wife and I were very pleased with your professionalism, people skills, creativity and contacts. It was like living an episode of one of those house make-over shows you see on TV! After our house not moving for three months, we got a recommendation from a family member to call you. Glad we did! Between the ideas from you and your interior designer, the low cost trades contacts you have and the ability to do some of the work ourselves, we transformed our stale house into one hot property, that you were promptly able sell to another happy family. With only a small reno and staging budget you were able to sell at 99% of list. Good work and thanks again for everything you did and we will certainly recommend your services to not only friends, but family too!!"

"It was very difficult for us to find a good real estate agent that was responsible and that was there for us no matter what kind of property we wanted to look at. While searching in the market for several months without an agent, we found Kim in one of her listings. She was fair and honest in which we liked and decided to ask her for her help in looking for something we wanted. In a short period of time, she was able to find a house that fit with our needs. She gave us guidance and suggestions that were much appreciated, and we secured the house we wanted. The process went smoothly thanks to the professionalism and efficiency of Kim. I would like to commend you on an amazing job and we'll definitely keep in touch."

"In December 2007, Kim Alldread helped us purchase our first home. She was exceptionally patient considering we were true "property virgins" and gave her many mixed signals about what exactly we were looking for. Considering our special circumstances, Kim was professional and respectable. She never pressured us and always acted honestly and with the most integrity. Her work helped us secure a competitive price on a home that fit our goals and was located in our ideal neighborhood. On our closing date in February 2008, Kim went above and beyond our expectations to ensure that everything went seamlessly! Her ability to be both genuine and an effective real estate agent procured a comfortable relationship between ourselves and Kim, and made for a positive and successful home buying experience. We wholeheartedly endorse her services and consider her future clients lucky to secure her as an agent.

"I dreaded the thought of looking for a house. Past expereinces have been nothing short of a nightmare. But after being introduced to Kim it was apparent she was not your run of the mill agent. Kim listened tentively to my long list of wants in a house. And it was a totally surprise that she found me exactly what I was looking for within a few days. Her negotiating skills, and knowledge far exceeded my expectations. I can't say enought about the great service Kim provided for me. And it is without a doubt that I would encourage anyone looking to buy or sell to give Kim a call. She will most definetly give you the best representation. Amazing that in this day and age there is still a Business Professional with values and morals! Thanks Kim."

"It was late Sunday afternoon near the end of last summer when my wife and I first met Kim. We have been visiting a list of open houses we have collected from the local paper. After the first couple of hours, we found ourselves not only evaluating the homes but the agents as well. Time was running late when we saw a sign for a home that wasn’t on our list. We chose to go for the last one on our list which had a conditionally Sold sign when we arrived. We decided to turn around and check out the one we have stumbled across. Even though the viewing time had passed, we knocked on the door and asked the agent if we could still walk through. She was just preparing to leave but said she would go around and turn the lights back on and we could have a look around. As fate would have it we found the house of our dreams and a great agent as well. Our house wasn’t on the market and we really wanted to move on this new house. We had found Kim’s personal and knowledgeable tour of the open house very impressive so we signed on with her to sell our home. Kim was very professional while fitting in like one of the family. From the evaluation and recommendations, through the staging and all the Open Houses to the Sale and Closing, Kim was always there for us. Even though she obviously had other deals and homes on the go, she always had time and made us feel like we were her only clients. We had a great experience moving from our starter home to our dream home which we can be comfortable in for the remainder of our lives. We are pleased to say that throughout this experience we met a great person, a great agent and a good friend."

"Thank you so much for selling our home. You certainly went above and beyond with many showings, open houses, and follow ups. As we waited for our perfect next house to come up, you constantly kept us aware of anything new on the market without pressuring us to rush into anything. Once we found our home your patience and professionalism made the offer and negotiating process simple. We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family looking to buy or sell."
Kris & Catherine
"I met several real estate agents before making the decision to use Kim as my Realtor. Everyone was very nice, but Kim just seemed to be the right person for the job. Kim was the reason I chose to use RE/MAX, and I am happy I did. My situation was a bit complex, but Kim helped to simplify things. She was always available to answer questions, give guidance, or add some needed reassurances. Kim's efforts in selling my home went above and beyond what I ever expected from any real estate person. Kim's help, efforts, positive attitude, and delightful personality are the reasons I would recommend her to anyone looking for an honest and trustworthy agent with an ambitious 'Get-R-Done' attitude."

"I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all your help with the purchase of 15 Michael Blvd. I must say that you have restored my faith in showing that there are agents out there who are really willing to support their clients in the entire home buying process end to end. You were extremely patient and really listened to my likes and dislikes, that alone makes you an AWESOME agent. I would love for you to stop by for a visit once I have completed all my upgrades/fixes. I want to showcase:) all the hard work I have been putting into my home.

"Just writing to tell you how happy we were with the services you provided us. Our first venture into Condominium living was a smooth transition and I think you helped a lot with that. Your service was great, you were there when we needed you. Our three visits to the property (you had patience galore) and then the final paperwork went without a hitch. We would not hesitate to recommend you and your wonderful service anytime or to anyone who is looking for a good agent. Thanking you for all that you have done, best regards."

"Bob and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your expertise in helping us re-locate from Mississauga to Bowmanville. From the first call made to you, we felt confident we would have no trouble finding a home. You were always available if we needed you and you made the process that much less stressful. You are a good listener, up front and honest with your advice and opinions. You always made us feel comfortable in your company. We will certainly be more than happy to pass along your name and number to friends, family or neighbours looking to live in the Durham area. It was a pleasure working with you and if at any time in the future we are thinking of selling, you will be the person we will contact to do the job for us."

"In early 2007, our dear mother had been placed in a long-term care facility and was failing rapidly; and my father who, understandably devastated by our mothers illness and being ill himself, had moved from their home and taken up residence in a retirement community. On a cold February weekend, my brother and sister and I were at our parents’ house, tidying up and preparing to place it up for sale. Since we were all together that weekend, we thought we would take the opportunity to telephone a few real estate agents in the area to arrange a meeting. When we telephoned the RE/MAX office, Kimberley Alldread answered and, to our surprise and delight, she told us she would be right over to meet with us. When Kim arrived, we found her very friendly, personable and very understanding of our situation. She had brought with her some examples of comparable listings in the area to assist us in deciding on a listing price. She gave us the name of a local professional housecleaner so that everything could be ready for an open house the following week, and she gave us the name of an auctioneer who came to pick up all the items in the house that we wanted sold. We were all very impressed with Kim’s efficiency, professionalism and thoroughness. It only took a few days for the house to sell and at more than the asking price. In closing, I would like to say that, at a very stressful and emotional time in our lives, the sale of my parents’ home proved to be the least of our worries.

"Kim has a positive attitude and a bubbly personality. She meets all the requirements of a professional real estate agent and then some. Kim tends to go that 'one step beyond' whether in giving or receiving advice, to special little touches at your open house. I would strongly suggest you hire Kim as your next real estate agent. Give her a call or go to an open house and meet with her. Thanks Kim, for an excellent job."
