    We are so thankful for Kim! She walked us step by step through the process of selling and buying our new home. She was present and there for every moment-and was a calm voice through the stressful moments. Her tremendous years of experience and knowledge of Columbia was invaluable. Her level of help and attention to detail in finding us the perfect home can only be compared to the care she would put into finding her own home! That is how invested she was in our process! She dreamed with us, both in getting our home ready to sell and in what we could do with our new house. Her resources of great services are invaluable! We literally could not have done it without her! She continues to celebrate with us as our renovations come to an end. She is a cut above and truly cares for her clients beyond the sale. We are so grateful!

    Dear Kim,
    It is such a pleasure working with you. You are just the realtor we had been looking for, and I cannot thank Tammy, our hairdresser, enough for introducing us. You are full of knowledge, resources, energy & PATIENCE!
    Thank you for your support, encouragement, honesty, professionalism, and availability. You had made our buying and selling houses process so much easier. We’ll continue referring family and friends as you are the best realtor in town. We love working with you!

  3. John and Lindsey Benson

    Kim helped my wife and I purchase out first house. She was referred to us from some friends of ours. Kim did not disappoint. As a first time home buyer, we were very nervous in the process and did not want to be forced into a house that was not right for us. Kim was perfect for us. She helped us identify potential problems that could cost us money in the future. She got use a really good deal on our house and that is why we are currently using Kim on our next potential purchase. My sister and brother in-law recently purchased a house in Columbia with the help of Kim as well. We would recommend Kim to anyone wanting to purchase a home in the Columbia area.

  4. Brett & Kerra

    Kim,
    We can’t thank you enough for the involvement, honesty, and support you have shown to us throughout our home selling journey. You truly are the best realtor! 12 hours and under contract?!
    Thank you for everything!
    Brett & Kerra

  5. Jeanine & Dale

    Dear Kim,
    A million thanks for all of your hard work as well as your endless patience. You have been such a great support throughout all of the craziness. Your kindness and wisdom saved our sanity! We are so glad that we were lucky enough to let the Schwartz be with us! Thank you so much!
    All the best,
    Jeanine & Dale

  6. Kayla & Craig

    My Fiance and I bought our first home together in Columbia on August 2016 before our upcoming wedding on New Year’s Eve. He accepted a new job in Columbia during a busy summer, and we needed to make the decision soon on if we were going to rent or buy. We expected that it would take us awhile to find our perfect home and we also expected the process to be scary and stressful…….we were so wrong. Kim was the reason that we were wrong. She made us feel so comfortable and we really felt like she was looking out for us and truly wanted the best for us. We knew that right away when she was so honest while we were house shopping and noticed things that we would have never thought of our noticed. She never made us feel like we had dumb questions, even though I know we did. We found our perfect home after only looking at 4 houses; however her work wasn’t even close to finished. She helped us in the negotiation process, dealing directly with our new home builder, neighborhood associates and so much more. Even after we closed on our house, she still stay involved to make sure that we were happy. She also sends out very informative emails about Columbia’s market, which helped us feel good about our decision. I would highly recommend Kim because she has and will have your back throughout the entire process. Should we ever sell our home, there is no doubt that I will be calling Kim. – Kayla & Craig

  7. Kayla & Cameron

    Kim was a godsend in finding and purchasing our first home! Kim kept in constant contact and helped us “newbies” understand the housing market and all that it entails. We both felt Kim truly cared about finding us the right home. Her compassion and dedication to her clients is what sets her apart from other realtors. Not only that, Kim has a great eye for design and guided us in finding the perfect flooring! I swear this woman knows everyone and they all love working with her. She truly goes above and beyond. I just can’t say enough great things. Go with Kim and let the Schwartz be with you!

  8. Nikki & Gordon Harper

    You were so invested in getting us the best deal on our home sale and home purchase. It was such a pleasure to work with such a warm, compassionate, caring person. You listened to our family needs, then set out to help us find the perfect house. Because of your help, the closing process on selling our old house and buying the new house was so easy! We will use you the next time we buy or sell!

  9. Lily

    You have been great in guiding clients on how to prepare the home to get the best value before putting it on the market. You have put forth a lot of effort on staging the home for no extra fee.
    I am impressed by how professionally you handled the transaction.
    Thank you,
    Lily

  10. Jason & Rebecca Knipp

    We cannot say enough about how Kim went above and beyond in her duties as realtor, and would recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell their house. Before we put our house on the market, Kim met with us and made some suggestions to “spruce up” and improve the marketability of our home. We followed her advice and ended up receiving an offer on our house after only a few hours on the market! Kim then quickly arranged for us to look at potential new homes, given the fast sale of our old house. She not only showed us the houses that we had originally picked to look at, but suggested some others that she thought would be good fits for us. She made great suggestions, including the house that became our new home! Although it was a whirlwind process from the listing of our home to closing on both houses on the same day, Kim was there for every step. I highly recommend Kim Schwartz and her team!
    Jason & Rebecca Knipp

  11. Rachel and Nathan Tiemeyer

    Kim, I will ALWAYS recommend you and do all the time. You have worked for us for almost 9 years, I think—searching for a duplex, then a house, then helping us buy our first house, helping us find repairmen, thinking through house updates, selling our first house, and buying a new house. You are the hardest working woman I know and would give the shirt off your back to your friends, family, and clients. Thank you so much for your friendship and help through some of the more stressful moments in our life. I wouldn’t choose another. You’re the best!

  12. Dusty & Jasmine Tyler

    This summer we had the pleasure of buying our first home with Kim. You hear horror stories but this was nothing like that. Very professional and we feel as if she is a dear friend. Without a question in purchasing another home we would go with Kim

  13. We had started to look at houses in the RBE school district to keep our kids in the same school. After contacting on a few houses we realized that most close in less than 24 hours and realized we would need an agent to keep on top of houses as soon as they came up. I asked around from a few coworkers who had bought houses who they would recommend and all of them had said they had used Kim. After a conversation with her and setting up parameters a house came available that met all of your requirements and most of the things on our wish list. she then met with us on several occasions so we could tour the home and see if it would fit our needs and was a pleasure to meet each time we asked to visit the house. She then helped us to draft an initial offer and subsequent counter offers and eventually landed on a mutual price and then we proceeded to work with Kim on the finalization of items to be taken care of before closing. Many of these items were not resolved by closing day and Kim fought hard for us to get them addressed, taken care of and/or discounted at the closing / signing of the papers. I would HIGHLY recommend Kim if you are looking for a house or a house to sell in her area, and I will not use anyone else in this area as long as she is in business.

  14. Katie and Rob

    Kim makes Columbia feel like a small town– she knows everyone, their kids and their dogs. She knew what we wanted in terms of size and price and led us directly to the neighborhoods where we needed to be looking. She never pressured us to spend more money than we wanted, and she made the negotiation process much less stressful. We also had a very good experience with one of the workers listed on her “resources” page. Next time around we hope to work with her again.

  15. Ryan and Jeanne

    We decided to put our house on the market, sold our house and bought a house all within 2 months! And we couldn’t have done it without Kim. She walked us through every step involved in getting our house ready for the market, and helped us navigate accepting and making offers in such a short amount of time. As so many others have said, what we appreciated most about Kim was her honesty, integrity and sincere care for our family. She is an incredibly hard worker, and we saw at every turn how respected she is among other realtors, inspectors/other professionals in the community, and former clients. We are truly thankful for Kim, and her guidance, professionalism and continued friendship.

  16. Benji & Natalie Long

    Kim was able to find the perfect house for our growing family. Even when given an impossible challenge of sticking to our budget and juggling our long list of requirements. We really appreciate her still sending us current market events in our neighborhood as well. Just another little detail that makes her a cut above the rest. We truly believe we have found our forever house, but if ever in need of a realtor in Columbia, MO or the surrounding we will be hiring her again.

  17. Greg & Stacy Cooper

    Kim Schwartz is such a talented realtor. My husband and I have bought and sold several houses feeling confident to do so because of Kim. She is honest, listens carefully, and is masterful at providing the necessary resources to finalize a deal. Thank you, Kim, once again for being such a great realtor and friend and sealing those deals for us!

  18. Crystal & Justin Renaldi

    Kim was referred to us by our friends and we couldn’t be happier with her help in selling our home quickly and finding the perfect house for our family. Kim was always so responsive when we had questions during the selling and buying process. She is so flexible with her time and truly looked out for our best interest throughout our time as her clients. Thank you so much for your help, you have been such a blessing to our family!

  19. Marcus & Rachel Herman

    Throughout the summer and fall of 2014, Kim helped my wife and I find the perfect home for our family. Kim was not your typical realtor, in fact she was nothing short of amazing. She was not only attentive and extremely accommodating to mine and my wife’s crazy schedule, a number of realtors can accomplish that. She went far further at the personal level, taking the time to truly understand the structure of our family life to suggest homes that not only checked the boxes off the wish list but could actually find that spot in your heart that makes you want to buy a home. Kim’s wealth of knowledge about real estate, design, and remodeling was a huge benefit for our family. We were wisely steered clear of a few homes and mistakes, and towards others that fit much better. With Kim’s expertise, our family found the perfect home in Columbia. We cannot thank Kim enough for all she did to make buying our home a truly wonderful experience!

  20. Ron & Dianne Larkin

    When we moved to Columbia we were referred to Kim Schwartz by our long time neighbors who are also highly successful and professional Realtors. We knew from the outset we would be in the hands of trusted professional and we were not disappointed.

    We had a very short time to locate a new house as our previous home had sold very quickly. Kim took the important step of spending upfront time with us to thoroughly understand the features we would be requiring in a new home. She then painstakingly screened the available properties and arranged for us to concentrate our search to the houses that met our rather stringent criteria. We did not visit one house that had not been well maintained and all fell within our category of being a “possibility”. Her work saved us a huge amount of time and stress.

    Our “perfect” house was found very quickly! Kim seamlessly guided us through the negotiation process (securing us a substantial reduction in asking price)) and the subsequent inspection and closing phases . Each aspect of the purchase transaction went according to schedule and without a glitch. We are very happy in our new home and credit Kim bringing everything together.

    Unlike some, Kim did not “take the money and run”. She has kept in touch and has shown a genuine interest in the changes we have made to the property and by helping make our transition to Columbia an easy one. Just as our neighbors had no reservations in referring us to Kim, we have no reservation in referring Kim to others.

  21. Mel & Rachael

    Kim is a phenomenal person and Realtor. She was incredibly helpful in getting our house sold in a timely and effective manner. She really knows her stuff and goes the extra mile in providing top notch service. We would recommend Kim to anyone looking at buying or selling a home in the mid Missouri area. Thank you Kim!

  22. Todd & Shannon

    Kim is simple AMAZING. We recently closed on our first home and Kim was sure to make the process smooth and simple for us. She helped us find an amazing house in no time (trekking out with us into the cold and snow to do so) and made all the paperwork and signing simple along the way. Kim has enough experience to offer guidance on the positives and negatives to any home. Her experienced eye and attention to details will help you see things you may not notice on your first pass through. Not only will she help you find the perfect house but after she does she will always protect your best interests. Our loan officer called her a “Mama Hen”, which is spot on. We love Kim!

  23. Patricia

    My fiance and I decided start looking for a home prior to our wedding. We did some research and asked around about realtors in Columbia before meeting with Kim. From the first meeting, we knew that we were in good hands with Kim. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with any of our questions. We were not putting a timeline on the house-hunt, we just wanted to make sure the house was right for our needs. Kim was very accommodating, even with my tons of emails about the various houses to view. She was on top of any new houses that came on the market and fit our criteria. After about three months and many weekend viewings, we found our house. Kim was extremely helpful during the contract negotiation process and even as we closed on the house. I would recommend Kim to anyone who is looking for a house. She listens to what you want/need and is there to help at any point in the search.

  24. Kate

    Kim was a complete godsend when we relocated to Columbia. My husband was promoted and started right away in Columbia, while the kids and I stayed behind to sell our other house. Even though we were in two different cities, and it was a difficult situation, Kim made the process so easy for us. Within a couple weeks, we put an offer on a house here, and we had an offer on our other house. Then there was a huge bump in the road – no fault of anyone involved, there was a strange zone issue. But Kim was on top of it and got the ball rolling to resolve the issue so that we would still be able to get into the new house before we closed on our other house. It was crazy, and it was fast; and she did an amazing job! Kim is very professional and knowledgeable. If you have questions, she responds promptly. She listens to your wants and needs and helps you find the perfect home. I highly recommend Kim Schwartz to anyone looking to buy a house.

  25. Clint Matthews

    Kim is great to work with and she is motivated to get properties sold. She goes the extra mile to make sure her clients are taken care of!

  26. Noah

    My wife and I are first time home buyers and were very new to this process. Kim was amazing and helped us find the home that best suited our needs. She is very pleasant to work with and is the upmost professional. She listens to your needs and applies them to the type of homes she shows you. She cares about her clients and is always there to make great recommendations. She was always there if we had questions and responded quickly to any concerns. If anyone out there is trying to buy a home please contact Kim, she will make sure to find you the right home. Thank you Kim for everything you did for us.

  27. Aimee

    I had the best experience with Kim! I was a first time home buyer and did not really know what to expect thru out this whole process, she made it seem so easy and it really was! I had an idea of the type of house I wanted and she took what I said and found me some houses that she thought I would like. She was spot on with the last one, I walked in and absolutely fell in LOVE with it! I would recommend her to anyone because she was so easy to work with! I felt like she really cared about what I wanted and wanted to find me that perfect house, she wasn’t just out there for a sell but really cared that I found a house that I would truly enjoy! Thank you so much Kim! If I ever decide to sell and buy again you will be the first person I call! I really appreciated all the help and advice you gave me!! Thanks again! Aimee

  28. Lauren Murry

    I cannot say enough good things about Kim Schwartz! Paul and I have known Kim for some time now through her daughter. As a parent, she was always involved in school events and outside activities, creating positive experiences for youth. At that time, I had no idea what she did as a realtor. It was a natural and comfortable choice to chose Kim as our realtor when it came time to purchase our first home. I couldn’t believe how hard she worked to find every answer we needed. She made the home buying process MUCH less intimidating than we thought it would be and was available for us anytime we needed her. It’s pretty incredible how much time and effort Kim invests in others, not just as a realtor, but for her community as well. It is easy to see she really loves helping others. On the technical side, her online database is easy to use and can communicate to Kim “favorites” so she can get a better feel for the types of homes you are interested in. If you are looking for a realtor, I HIGHLY recommend Kim Schwartz!

  29. Jake & Chantel

    Kim was great! In buying our first home, she worked with us through every detail prepping us to find the best house we could within our budget. We put her skills (and patience, I’m sure) to the test because it took us a good while to settle on a house, but she never complained. She knew us so well as clients that we almost defaulted to her reaction every time we stepped into a showing. She is super knowledgable, very helpful and knows Columbia like the back of her hand. Just wait until she drives you around, you will never see her use a map. Kim sacrificed so much to make our house-buying experience enjoyable and that’s why we would refer her to anyone, especially first-time buyers!

  30. Robyn & Stephen

    When Stephen and I began looking at houses, we were unsure of how to proceed. Kim was exceptional. She coached us through our home loan options, such as renovation loans, foreclosures, and conventional loans. Kim tirelessly showed us houses only within our price range, provided insight into neighborhoods, cost of home repairs, and showed us hidden values.
    As others have stated, Kim answers phone calls and emails promptly and fully. She is courteous, honest, and has a passion for her career. We wholeheartedly recommend her to our local friends for both buying and selling; Kim is the only realtor we’ll use!

  31. Patrick & Emily

    As first time home-buyers, our experience with Kim began before we were even serious about house hunting. For a year she sent us email updates about housing that helped us to get a pulse on the market here in town. Those emails were critical in helping us develop realistic expectations for a budget, home size and location.

    Once we began looking more seriously, Kim helped us find houses – but more importantly she helped us keep our heads. In the midst of making offers, considering offers, and finally buying, she was an invaluable resource. Her help, advice, and guidance helped us to make a great decision in the end. She listened when we needed to vent, she advised when we misunderstood details, and helped us not feel alone in the stress and business of home buying. On top of that, Kim always went the extra mile. She put our interests before her own at every turn. I never once felt like she viewed us as dollar signs. We were always people in her eyes.

    We’re so thankful for all her work!

  32. Jeff & Jessi Parrett

    As first-time home buyers, we approached the process of looking for a home with many questions and a good deal of uncertainty. Thankfully, we were blessed to work with Kim throughout the whole process. Kim works with an incredible amount of passion and character in the ways that she helps home-buyers. Professionally, Kim provides exceptional service and support. Personally, clients will find that Kim is a friend who truly cares about her work and her neighbors. There is nobody else that we would recommend to friends – Kim is hands down the only realtor we will ever use!

  33. Mona & Prentess

    Kim was great from start to finish! She helped put us at ease and shouldered any burdens throughout the home selling process. She found a buyer for us quickly, and everything went smoothly. We were able to sign closing papers prior to the actual closing date, which was very convenient for us.

    We would recommend Kim to anyone looking for a realtor. She was professional, courteous, prompt and knowledgeable.

  34. Clayton & Elizabeth

    Elizabeth and I will be forever grateful to Kim for her service in helping us find our first home. Kim was a tireless worker. There were several times when we received late night e-mails from Kim, long after Elizabeth or I had thought about work of our own. Kim either answered phone calls or promptly returned messages. She made us feel reassured when we were feeling uneasy. She pointed out flaws and spotted hidden value. Simply put, we felt then and feel now that we were in good hands when making the important decision of purchasing a house. We could relax and let Kim do her job. We recommend Kim’s services as a realtor without hesitation.

  35. Matt LeBlanc

    Since we were purchasing our first home, I was a bit nervous. As soon as I met Kim, I felt right at ease. She was extremely helpful in all aspects of the buying process. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. Thanks Kim!

  36. Leah

    We were so lucky to come across Kim’s name as our realtor. She helped us through every aspect of our home building process, from meeting us at the stores to choose finishes as well as coaching us through the whole home buying process. I will always recommend Kim to friends and family as a real life Sandra Renomato (HGTV’s property expert). She is so knowledgable and is always there for the client, she is not just trying to make a sale- she actually cares for her clients and will do everything possible to make sure they are happy. We couldn’t have found a better realtor.

  37. Suzanne & Josh

    As newlyweds with three small children, we were anxious about beginning our first homeowner’s experience. Our friend Vickie recommended Kim’s services, complimenting Kim as “trustworthy and helpful.” Kim provided us information continually as first time homebuyers so we could make an educated decision about our first home. She was patient with our pondering and questioning for over 6 months. She was very flexible with our rotating scheduling with young children and full-time jobs. We have lived in our new home for two months now and could not be happier! We pray never to have to sell our little home, but we are thankful to know we can call Kim again to help us in the selling experience.

  38. Stacy & Greg

    Kim helped us buy a house for our daughter to live in during college, as well as helped us find a new home. Kim’s patience, knowledge of the market, resourcefulness in finding subcontractors, and her loyalty to us as clients/friends is truly unmatched. I have recommended Kim to family, as well as friends. Kim is truly a hidden gem, and we are blessed to have worked with her.

  39. Eric & Amanda Schultz

    We truly enjoyed working with Kim! As first time home buyers we were nervous and unsure of what to expect. Kim was there with us for everything we needed and really made the process enjoyable and easy. We cannot imagine using anyone besides Kim! We have referred many of our friends to her and they have had wonderful experiences as well. Kim is a very professional and hard working! We loved working her. Thanks!!!
