Kim has sold two homes for me - Reston and Alexandria - and is a joy to work with! Kim manages every detail of the transaction so you don't have to. From her years of working in the Metro area, she has so many resources that if you need assistance to prepare your property for sale she can assist with that as well. Kim has an excellent eye for what buyers are looking for so listen to her suggestions! Once the house is looking great, Kim is the best at getting your home noticed and sold quickly. I have recommended Kim to many friends and will continue to do so.
If you need to sell/find a home, you should definitely contact Kim, she was a delight to work with and super knowledgeable of the real state market in our area.
Kim is an amazing person who is always willing to help and to go the extra mile. Her knowledge of the market is extensive and she really knows what questions to ask to ensure you are getting exactly what you want. Kim is a wonderful resource and is always super responsive and quick with getting things you need done. She is one the friendliest and nicest people I know- always with a big smile, a compliment and an incredible attitude. Not only did I have the pleasure of working with her, but she also helped my parents with two different real estate transactions. Our family trusts Kim and her family with all our real estate needs. Highly Recommended!
Ms. Kaufhold, the realtor who guided us through the sale of my mother-in-law's home, is a consummate professional, with impressive interpersonal skills. She is extremely knowledgeable, understands the competitive landscape and knows the comparatives of the competition which informs her advice. She was able to navigate the personalities of the family members and went above and beyond her job description in providing service that was needed because our families lived far away. She was patient, accommodating, a LISTENER, wise and guided us to a place where we could all be to sell a home that has been the hearth and heart of the family for decades.
Tom and I tell everyone about our great experience with your team. You go so far beyond what most sellers expect. Your marketing plan, and staging plan, and attention to detail were the best. Your hours of pre-listing work made a huge difference. You gave great advice on what to do to get the house ready, and remained open to our ideas too. We did a lot of touching up, clearing out, and a few maintenance projects. Then we stood back and let you "stage" the house for us. Anyone who thinks that does not make a house sell faster and for more money has never seen your work. You sold our house in a week and for a great price in a tough market. WOW! You’re good!
Thanks again, Pam and Tom Maskey
We knew immediately that Kim, and all her support, were the team for us. That was borne out by how masterfully they marketed our home and the enormous response they generated. That we received multiple offers is a testimony to their skill, and their negotiations for final bids resulted in a quick, painless, and positive closing. We mean it!
Cheers, Terry and Nancy
We would like to express our satisfaction with the fantastic job that Kim Kaufhold did in listing, staging and selling our home. From day one Kim demonstrated her ability to ensure that every aspect of our listing and sale were covered. She used her design background to do a beautiful job staging our house. We received numerous comments from friends and relatives saying our house looked like a model home. No matter what obstacle presented itself Kim had a solution. Our first showing was immediately following an 18 inch snow storm. My husband was out of town on a business trip and I was in a panic. Kim said “not to worry”, and before I knew it she and her children were at my house shoveling the snow and straightening everything inside the house. Over the course of our listing Kim had to deal with several challenging situations, but she always maintained a diplomatic professional attitude. Her resourceful and creative solutions convinced us that we had selected the right realtor to sell our home. With her daily attention to detail she made us feel as though we were her only client, when in fact she had several listings. To ensure our house was priced to sell Kim provided us with regular market analysis and price comparisons. She advised us when asked, but never pushed us to a decision we did not want. Despite a difficult sales market Kim was able to present us with several offers. She worked hard to negotiate the best contract to meet our needs. Once the sale was final we experienced “Kim Withdrawal”. She had become such a valuable resource and so much a part of our daily life that we felt a void once her job was complete. Over the past 37 years we have bought and sold numerous homes, but we felt as though Kim was head and shoulders above all of the other realtors we have dealt with.

I met with Kim to view a rental property, she was amazing. The rental process can some times be daunting, but I was met with a friendly, knowledgeable, responsive agent that made me feel welcomed and at ease. When the time comes to purchase, I’ve already found my agent!
