Kim- I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon such a great real estate agent when I moved here – and just so lucky to be leaving here with a wonderful friend! -Autumn 

When Brett and I discussed buying a house, we never knew what a tremendous help we’d have throughout the entire process. While the road was a little bumpy, you made it as smooth as it could be. We felt completely at ease knowing you had our best interest at heart. We can’t thank you enough for your patience with us and for all the time and negotiating you provided for us. -Brett and Kerra

    Kim was wonderful to work with. She helped us get our house on the market to sell . She was very professional , hard working and I would highly recommend her if you are in need
    of selling your house. She made it easy!! Thanks Kim for a job well done!!

  2. Michelle

    We had a great experience with Kim! She has a wealth of knowledge not only about the market but about who you can get for any sort of repair. She was so easy to work with helped us get the home of our dreams. I hope we wont need her anytime soon but I will recommend her to anyone who asks!

  3. Hannah

    Kim is simply the best! We have worked with her several times and she has always been wonderful to work with. She goes above and beyond. If you need a realtor look no further!

  4. Dan and Laurie

    This is the fourth home that we have sold in our lifetime and it was the easiest and smoothest process of selling a house that we have ever experienced. I say that all to give the credit completely to Kim because of the way that she guided us through the process, provided excellent suggestions for preparations, and just all of the thoughtful things that she did to make our selling experience very easy. Kim went way beyond what any other agent has ever done for us and we are so appreciative that she made the sale of our house so successful. We would highly recommend that you choose Kim as your agent for the sale of your next home!

  5. Andrew White

    This was our first time buying a home and we simply couldn’t be happier that we trusted our friends with their recommendation of Kim! I honestly can’t imagine how stressful the process would have been without her guidance. From A to Z, she stewarded us through the entire process with ease and comfort. We were also particularly impressed with how well she seemed to remember the small things we loved about certain homes. When a new house popped up on the market, she would reach out and say things like, “Oh, I think this one just might have the perfect master bathroom for you guys!” It was that kind of attention to detail that made working with Kim a 10/10 experience. She also has an impressive number of contacts in literally every field related to the home buying experience you could think of. We’ve also been in our new home for two months and love every bit of it! And finally, even beyond her professionalism and attention to detail, Kim is sincerely one of the kindest people I have ever met. She always met us with a positive attitude and a smile on her face, and that’s a rare thing these days. To make a long review short, we couldn’t recommend Kim enough!

  6. Paul and Lauren

    The BEST realtor we’ve worked with hands down. Kim has been our go to for buying/selling homes for nearly 10 years. She has incredible knowledge and experience that makes the buying/selling process totally painless. She’s smart, hardworking, detail oriented, responsive, thoughtful, caring,… I could go on and on. I will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.

  7. Adam

    Kim was awesome to work with. She made the process of selling our house painless, even during a pandemic and with a Pregnant wife. Throughout the whole process she was so helpful and available. You could always catch her by phone or set up a quick meeting. She was transparent with everything and made sure we understood every step of the process. We definitely plan on using Kim in the future whenever that time comes.

  8. Beth

    Kim Schwartz helped us find our home in Columbia and sell it when was time for us to move on. She is personable and we always felt like she had our best interests in mind. She was patient and never pressured us about a home to buy or price to use. We felt supported and guided well. We highly recommend Kim for buying and selling your home.

  9. Stacy and Greg

    When we found a villa in KC close to where our daughter lives, I immediately contacted Kim, to once again, help us sell the home we were in. This ended up being the craziest time to sell, because Covid wasn’t a big topic yet. But soon, it was the main topic of our nation and the world. Kim was my rock during this emotional time helping us get our house listed, talking us through each step of the way, and giving us the confidence that our closing day would soon approach. And it did. Seemlessly due to Kim and Eric’s help. Thank you SO MUCH. We are thoroughly enjoying our new home in KC, and already miss our wonderful friends in Columbia. I also very highly recommend using Kim Schwartz as your realtor!

  10. Jeff & Jessi

    We are deeply grateful for the chance to work with Kim Schwartz. When we bought our first home seven years ago, Kim graciously and wisely walked us through the home buying process and made us feel comfortable along the way. When it came time for us to sell our first home and get more space for our growing family, Kim was a wonderful guide as we navigated the process of buying and selling. We are in our new home thanks to Kim’s hard work and kindness, and we are happy to recommend her to buyers and sellers in mid-Missouri. Thank you, Kim!

  11. Charlie and Lynne James

    One day I mentioned to Kim that my husband and I were thinking about moving closer to our granddaughters. Within a week, before we even had our home under a contract with Kim to sell it, she had some potential buyers come look at our home. Unbelievably, they bought our home. Then within another week, she found us the perfect home where we now live which is just one mile from our granddaughters. As always, Kim goes beyond what most realtors would do. She prepares you for every step of the selling and buying process. Best agent with whom to work. Do not hesitate to call Kim if you are looking for a home. She has a wealth of knowledge that you need to tap into. Thanks, again, Kim, for everything you have done for us.

  12. Terry and Teresa

    After working with Kim for years as a contractor, I knew Kim was someone who was knowledgeable and that I could trust. She made recommendations for improvements that were instrumental in the sale of our house. Kim was readily available to answer any questions via phone call, email or text. Closing on the house went smoothly, even considering we were on vacation during much of the process. I’m totally confident as a seller or buyer, no matter what the market, Kim will do her best for you!

  13. John Jones

    I had worked with Kim professionally in the Columbia area. I quickly noticed she was very responsive. When it came to selling my home it was a no brainer. Kim happily agreed to help my wife and I sell our home in Holts Summit. It was the best realtor experience we have ever had! Kim is very knowledgeable. She was always willing to explain things in non-realtor terms to help us understand verbiage and she was always on our side. It was a very stress free experience. You have nothing to lose when you go with Kim! We absolutely recommend her and her husband! Thank you so much Kim!

  14. Andrew Luley

    We’ve bought two houses through Kim now. Anyone who’s bought a house knows its a stressful, deadline-oriented process. So if I could summarize Kim’s work in a short sentence it would be this: she knows how to get the deal done.

    Specifically, she has good relationships with all the contractors you’d need for bids, estimates, or repairs AND gets them in the house within the required time frame. We would not have been able to move so fast on our new house if Kim wasn’t leading the way. She also has good relationships with local lenders and the one she recommended to us ended up giving us the best deal.

    Thanks, Kim!

  15. Rob K

    Kim was wonderful to work with. She was extremely affable, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable about both the market and what to look for when sizing up a prospective house. She was also extremely responsive. The house we bought and now live in was one that wasn’t even on our radar — Kim pointed it out to us, and we’re really glad that she did.

  16. Kelly

    Kim is the absolute best – I was referred to her by a colleague and couldn’t be happier that she was the one to help us along our first adventure buying a house. We initially met with her months before the ideal time for us to move, and she was full of helpful tips without pressuring us at all. She made sure to check in on us as we got closer to our ideal move date, and kept us from spiraling into despair when we lost out on a house that we loved! Kim is clearly very, very good at what she does; she knew instantly when a house we wanted to look at wasn’t a good choice for us, whether that be the subtle things that meant we had more of a “fixer-upper” that we weren’t ready for or a house that looked a good size but really would have been too small for us. She was actually the one that ultimately found the house that we ended up buying and was totally right – it’s perfect for us. As first-time home buyers, we also made a mistake and scheduled our closing day when we were on vacation! Kim came to the rescue and did the final walk through for us since we weren’t in town.

    Kim is absolutely fantastic and she’ll be the first person I call when we go to move again. From being incredibly responsive to our questions as well as being an overall amazing being, we could not have asked for a better realtor.

  17. Erick and Karen Crago

    Kim made the process of buying our home not only so much simpler than it would have been without her, but actually (somewhat!) enjoyable! Kim is friendly, open and loyal to her clients. She went above and beyond for us in so many ways!

    Kim, thank you again, so, so much! Our new house is truly becoming “home”. We can’t thank you enough!!!

  18. Kristen & Tyler

    We recently moved to Missouri from out of state and a colleague recommended Kim Schwartz to us. We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to have Kim guide us through the process, she is absolutely the best! Never have we encountered such personalization and dedication from a realtor before – this was far and away our most enjoyable real estate experience to date. Right from the very beginning, she was quick (within minutes) to respond to our every concern. We had limited time to purchase a new home and were unfamiliar with the area, both of which daunting complications to the process on their own. However, she managed to make the experience a truly positive one, taking her time to personally drive us around Columbia to show us the area and provide detailed information on all the neighborhoods and communities. Every single person we ran into during this home buying journey, from other realtors to the mortgage lender, all knew Kim and had worked with her on some level in the past. Even more impressive was that every single one of those people had nothing but the nicest things to say about her and our home inspector actually went out of his way to help us out of respect for Kim. While viewing homes her honesty and expertise are apparent as she points out potential concerns vs. ways we could easily improve the house. At no time did she ever pressure us to try to buy anything out of our price range or toward the top our our range as opposed to bottom. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Kim, and look forward to working with her again next time we move. You will not regret choosing her, we give Kim our highest recommendation.

  19. Matt and Karen

    Kim was referred to us by our daughter and son-in-law, who had previously worked with her through the purchase and sale of their home. Moving to Columbia from out of town, it was reassuring to have a realtor who was passionate about her career and had our best interest at heart! She helped us find the perfect home and make an offer on it within two days. Being new to the area, we appreciated all of her help and advice. The resources on her website were valuable. Kim also took the time and shared her wealth of knowledge by recommending services, as we had plans to update our new home. She also shared some great, creative ideas to help
    with the remodel! We really appreciated Kim’s hard work and expertise in assisting us in purchasing our forever home! We will definitely highly recommend her to others in search of an exceptional, trustworthy
    realtor! 🙂

  20. Troy and Dawn

    We have bought 2 houses and sold 1 with Kim and were not disappointed! If you are wanting a realtor that listens to you, supports you and guides you through one of the most stressful times in your life…call Kim! Thanks so much for your effort and time so that we can now just enjoy our primary house that we are in LOVE with 🙂

  21. Jeana

    Kim and her team were amazing! The Schwartz team was very professional and all questions or concerns were answered. Kim worked hard for us as we were on a timeline and needed to sell our home as soon as possible. The Schwartz team was with us every step of the way and I would highly recommend them for your real estate needs. Thank you, Kim Schwartz and Associates!

  22. Kermit and Nicole

    Kim came highly recommended to us by many local friends who have used her over the years. When we found ourselves considering moving (within town) I called Kim. Before I even knew if I was going to buy/sell she gave me so much time-talking me through the options, coming to see my house, offering suggestions and expertise. We ended up listing our house with Kim-and sold that one and purchased a new one all within 2 months! Kim is kind, honest, hard working, and very knowledgeable about the market and the city. We went to Kim for a realtor and ended up with a friend!

  23. Ed & Jan VanSciver

    It took us literally all of 2018 to get sold and moved out of our home of 28 years in SW Columbia. We became exhausted and floundered in the middle But after we brought Kim in, things went smoothly and promptly. She was positive, supportive and a joy to work with. As a bonus she found us a realtor in our new home town who turned out to be very good also.

  24. Gary Anger

    Kim listed my house at the beginning of August 2018. It was past prime real estate selling time, but I was hopeful we could get it sold by the end of the year. Right from the start she was very attentive and got the paperwork and process underway right away. She helped me with pricing adjustments by supplying market comparatives and good recommendations. During the listing she advised we remove carpet on the main floor and redo the wood floors. She helped by getting an estimate and lining up a contractor to do the work. It made a huge difference and was instrumental in the ultimate sale. After we had an offer and the inspection, we agreed to put in a radon mitigation system for the basement. Again, Kim did all the work getting a contractor and making sure all went well. Much to my satisfaction, we ended up closing the first week of December 2018. During those 4 months, we had approximately 30 showings, remarkable action in the Fall and Winter. Kim was very easy to work with and gave me all the information I needed to make decisions during the sales process. I highly recommend you consider Kim Schwartz for your real estate transactions.

  25. Charlie and Lynne James

    Kim sold us our home in Old Hawthorne. It says a lot about her that we would not consider using another real estate agent ever again. She is the best. She understood our needs and wants in a home. She was by our side every step of the way through closing and after. I have contacted her several times with questions about our new home and she is always there with the answer. She has a wealth of knowledge about the area and also has given us lots of handy tips about where we can obtain items or workers in the area. You will never regret having Kim as your realtor and then having her become your friend.

  26. Mary and John

    Kim’s tenacity is the reason we own our new home in Columbia! She worked thru multiple issues for us and always found a way to get past the obstacles. She worked so hard on our behalf. Kim is honest, trustworthy, knowledgeable, professional, and a true pleasure to work with. She is also genuine and caring and fun! We had complete confidence in Kim when she represented us during our house hunting/buying process since we were living 120 miles from Columbia. Thank you for everything, Kim! You’re the best!

  27. Barbara and Joseph T. Henderson

    We felt very fortunate to work with Kim and her team. From the beginning of discussing the purchase of a new home to selling the home we moved from – Kim was a professional, efficient agent. She provided resources to help in the renovation process of the home we purchased. She used a variety of resources to advertise the home we needed to sell. Kim symbolizes the integrity and commitment that are vital to her profession. In the past 40 years we have owned 11 primary and secondary homes, so we have met many real estate agents. All we can say is – you won’t be disappointed if you enlist the support of Kim. She is a great agent, someone we could trust, a pleasure to work with and we have made a good friend.

  28. John and Emily

    Kim was everything and more we could have asked for from a realtor as first-time home owners. We moved to the Columbia recently and decided to rent while we got a feel for the area. Being planners, we started looking for a home very early on in our leasing agreement. We found Kim on Zillow and even knowing we wouldn’t be able to purchase any of the homes we were looking at for at least 9-10 months, Kim was still intrigued to help us search! We were also all over the place with the type of home we wanted and could afford. We went from looking at some fixer upper cabins on some land, new constructions in town and everything in between! She rolled with every indecisive thought and idea we had! She got an in depth feel for what details were really important to us to have and showed us houses with a little bit of everything we liked. Once we decided we would build, we had no idea what we were getting into! She broke down everything our builders were saying and went to just about every meeting with our builders to ensure we were getting exactly what we wanted for our price range! We still continued to look at houses with Kim to get ideas for our new construction. She honestly thinks of every little detail we would have never thought of. Not just what we thought we would want, but also what would make our home increase in value down the road and what was practical for day to day living. From the way every door was swinging, to the way our house faced, to the type of windows we used, to color of the grout in our backsplash, she knew what would and wouldn’t work. We honestly had no idea what we were doing looking back! She also bargained for us at every step. She made sure we were not spending money that wasn’t needed and ensured a smooth execution at closing with our builders. She had an extremely good knowledge of Columbia and surrounding areas and has worked with I think every builder in what seemed every neighborhood! She is also involved in a wide variety of group organizations outside of her work that we wouldn’t have known about if we had not met her! Truly one of a kind! To sum up, we would rate Kim as professional, detail-oriented, and caring.

  29. Larry & Merline

    After more than a year of rehabbing our 100 year old house, Kim made the sale of the house pretty much pain free. Offers came in during the first open house weekend and we took one of the offers before the first week was up. The contrast between the pace of the rehab which we did ourselves and the stress free sale(which Kim did) was very satisfying.

  30. Ope K.

    Kim has helped us through buying and selling in a period of 4 months. Kim was highly recommended by co-workers who had previously worked with her. From the 1st day of sitting with her to outline what we were looking for and the budget to closing on the house, she was very instrumental in working & educating us through the process as first-time home buyers. After we were under contract, she recommended contractors to work with and recommending tactics on working around bumps on the road. Even after closing, she was always there with any questions and directing through issues as a homeowner (i.e. resolving AC issue while we were out of town and recommending reliable contractors for issues). Kim is a great agent to guide you through the home buying & selling process but above all she is a great person who will care about you.

  31. Jeremy Pilkington

    Kim was so great the first time around, we had to go back for more! Twice now, Kim has helped our family find the home that was just right for us as that stage of life. She displays a superb working knowledge of available properties, an excellent eye for the pros and cons of a given home, and exudes genuine care all along the way. She was patient, and consistently available despite our limited schedule. And through her assistance as a seller’s agent, we sold our first home in a single day, enabling us to pounce on our next home as soon as it became available. Perhaps most importantly, when it came time to buy, she used her incredible connections to provide us a an in-depth, wholistic understanding of any issues that needed to be addressed with our new (but older) home. Thanks, Kim!

  32. Bill and Maria Reazer

    Kim! We are all moved in and can’t thank you enough for the way you cared for our family before, during and AFTER we purchased and moved into our new home! With no real knowledge of the area, your history and expertise gave us all the confidence we needed in deciding on a location and home. And when we had questions, you either had the answer or went OUT OF YOUR WAY to find everything we needed to know. In what can be a terrifying experience, we said over and over…you are amazing, took care of our family, were patient, had a wealth of knowledge about Columbia, and ALWAYS went the extra mile! Thank you!

  33. Jeff

    I truly imagined the sell being much more difficult since I now live on the East Coast. Kim made the transition so much easier by handling the contractors, staging the home and by being proactive with the paperwork aspect of the sell. Thank you for the great communication and for treating me like family. Would recommend her to anyone moving in or out of the greater Columbia area.

  34. Ines & Jan

    One of our parents had made plans to move back to Columbia after a few years of retirement in Florida.
    But soon after he purchased a house in Columbia, he changed his mind and decided to remain in Florida.
    We were asked to help with the arrangements for selling the Columbia house. We spoke with several
    realtors about listing the house, and as soon as we met with Kim we knew our search for a realtor was finished.
    Kim did a great job at every stage of the selling process, and we enjoyed working with Kim on both a
    professional and a personal level. We were particularly impressed with Kim’s efficiency and skill
    in arranging the staging and photography for the listing. The listing really stood out among the several
    comparable properties, and quickly attracted buyer interest. Looking back at the entire process now
    that the house has been sold, we are very satisfied with Kim’s work and pleased to give her a
    strong recommendation.

  35. Matt & Kristi Sveum

    We found Kim through a referral from a friend, and we couldn’t be happier! Kim helped us find a house and get under contract in four days, so we didn’t work with her for long, but she was so helpful at every step from our first meeting to closing. There were a few problems that popped up during the process, and Kim was always fast to take care of them. She provided us with the information that we needed to understand what was happening, and helped us to make decisions. As first time buyer, this was invaluable. We are so glad that we found Kim, and will eagerly recommend her to everyone who asks!

  36. Lindsey

    Kim has been our realtor through two home purchases and the sale of our first home. She isn’t just a realtor to us, we consider her a friend. Kim was referred to us by a friend several years ago and we were told , “She’s the Best!” Kim did not disappoint. She really listens to your needs and wants. If it wasn’t the right house, we would move onto the next. She has the patience of a Saint as well. It took us over a year to find our current home. I can’t imagine going through the buying/selling process with anyone else. We are so happy that we have had the pleasure of working with her more than once. Thanks, Kim!!!

  37. Alan and Stephanie

    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!

  38. Sid & Alicia

    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!

  39. 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.

  40. Brett & Kerra

    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

  41. 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

  42. 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

  43. 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!

  44. 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!

  45. 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,

  46. 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

  47. 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!

  48. 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

  49. 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.

    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.

  51. 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.

  52. 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.

  53. 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!

  54. 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!

  55. 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!

  56. 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.

  57. 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!

  58. 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!

  59. 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.

  60. 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.

  61. 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!

  62. 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.

  63. 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

  64. 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!

  65. 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!

  66. 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!

  67. 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!

  68. 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!

  69. 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.

  70. 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.

  71. 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!

  72. 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.

  73. 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.

  74. 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.

  75. 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!!!

    1. Rachel

      As a first time home buyer Kim was great to work with. She walked to through the whole process and was always available to answer every question I had. She was great to work with and I highly recommend her.
