“I want to provide Mike my highest recommendation as a real estate agent. I have bought and sold houses before, and have always felt that most agent/brokers are paper pushers and are just looking for their client (seller or buyer) to get a deal so they can secure their commission. Mike changed that perception when we retained him to help us buy an expensive vacation home in Marblehead. Mike has a complete mastery over the Marblehead real estate market. He knows what are true comps, and knows what comps don’t make sense. He knows how to value a property, whether he is representing the buyer or seller. Mike is also a strong negotiator. We took a very aggressive stance on the sales price of a house, and Mike got us there. Further, even after a deal was made, and the inspection went poorly, as our buyer’s agent, Mike facilitated a further reduction in the price and kept the whole deal from blowing apart. Mike had a great bedside manner, was extremely responsive, and ultimately very helpful. Mike is also good at the little things, like recommending various local vendors such as a housekeeper, caretaker, gardner, etc. If you need a real estate agent for a Marblehead property, look no further. Mike is your guy.”
“I was extremely pleased with the care and professional manner that Mike and Kim both used in selling my house. The marketing was first class. The people that they hired to photograph and video the house did excellent work. Having a dedicated web site that a potential buyer could access while driving by was a great idea. The negotiations and closing process were handled extremely well. Mike and Kim’s assistance and support during the whole process was greatly appreciated.”
“Having bought and sold many properties over the years, the service Kim provided was by far the best we have ever experienced with real estate agents. During a very stressful period of managing so many balls in the air, Kim was a steady, grounded and professional partner in the process.
Kim took on a very complex challenge of selling our home, and simultaneously purchasing a new home and business. She did an incredible job of managing all the parties to move the process along on a very tight timetable. She made herself available for numerous meetings and calls and at the final inspection stage, actually made her car available to help us move household items in order to meet a tight deadline.
Smart, savvy, professional, personable and action-oriented are a few attributes that stand out. She handled every crisis without hesitation. She knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and provided a great deal of savvy advice when it came to developing an offer strategy.
We owe a great deal of gratitude to Kim and give her our highest endorsement. We wish her continued success.”
“Kim made the process of selling our home a truly wonderful process. She was with us before we put the house on the market, helping us to prepare our home and strategically market it to the right target audience. Due to all of her assistance, our home sold in 12 hours! Kim is extremely professional, hard working, and a true partner who gets results. I tell everyone I know who is considering buying or selling a home to call Kim.”
“We can’t thank Kim enough for all she did to bring about a smooth sale of our home. Selling the home we had lived in for twenty years seemed a daunting task until we met Kim. She handled every aspect with such attention to detail… pricing the home to sell, hiring a talented stager, and arranging for a professional photographer to take the incredible photos (which was a smart marketing coup!).
Thankfully, Kim was there to handle the questions, the offers and the headaches and brought to the table a hassle-free sale in under two days from listing! Incredible!
Anyone who wants to sit down with an energetic, professional realtor who works as hard for her clients as Kim does would be well advised to seek her out. We both truly enjoyed working with Kim and feel as if we sold a home and gained a friend.”
“My husband and I recently decided to sell our home in Marblehead as a result of a company relocation. As two busy, full-time professionals with an active 14 month at home, we needed all the assistance we could get – luckily, Kim Pyne was recommended to us. From the moment we met Kim, we felt at ease. Kim briefed us on the current and anticipated market, assisted us in determining the right listing price, and handled all the details of photographing the home, creating a website and distributing marketing materials. During the open house process, she assisted us in staging the home, gave us ample notice on when potential buyers would be visiting, and ensured each potential buyer felt welcome and that their questions were resolved. The home sold quickly at above-asking – we credit this in large part to Kim. She is smart, passionate, personable, and organized. She goes above-and-beyond what is expected and truly earns her commission. I would highly recommend her (and often do!) to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the North Shore area.”
“We had such an amazing experience with Kim! She helped us find a home in our first choice neighborhood at a solid price. She was patient, knowledgeable, calm, practical and fair. She was also an amazing resource while we planned our new life in Marblehead. Coming from Connecticut, we had limited knowledge of the area and relied on her immensely. She went above and beyond by touring the neighborhoods with us, giving the inside scoop on the schools and helping us get acclimated to town. She even helped us get one of the last available slots in a popular pre-school! Even after our closing, she is still a resource with a wealth of referrals. I would not consider using any other relator thank Kim!”
“I am so appreciative of Kim’s professionalism, kindness, and attention to detail. I will highly recommend her to anyone I encounter who is looking to buy or sell.”
“I could not offer a more sincere and enthusiastic review of my experience working with Kim. She truly went above and beyond to make the complex process of selling our home a seamless and easy experience. She made calls for me, scheduled appointments, and stepped in to meet with contractors when I could not. Thanks to her advice and guidance we sold our home the first weekend it was listed! Kim is smart, savvy, efficient and extremely well-connected. Yet she is also warm and sincere and truly cares about finding the best solutions for her clients. From start to finish she has been there helping me navigate each step, planning ahead and ensuring that all potential complications were avoided. I cannot imagine having a better experience and I am immensely grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her. Thank you, Kim!”
