Summary of their experience
Both my husband and I were realtors in the past, and did a FOR SALE BY OWNER of our own property,knowing the promotional details and paperwork for completing a sale. The first realtor to contact us (practically immediately) was Kim Greiner with Coldwell Banker, leaving a packet on our door and calling us, but we told thanked her said we wished to persist on our own. Six months later she contacted us again, having comparables to support her listing price. This time we went with her signing papers on a Tuesday; she took pictures the same day. By the Friday afternoon she had it on the MLS, advertised, staged, and an open house booked and advertised for the weekend, keeping us posted about the details all the while. Anyone in the business knows how much computer and physical work that is! After one week she called to say she would be bringing us an offer! It closed 29 days later, making it through all the contingencies without a hitch! Suffice it to say she is a marketing guru, knows people, real estate, contractors and is a friend and adviser to both sellers and buyers. She mediates it in such an experienced matter-of-fact and honest way, never pushing her own ideas or reasoning into the negotiations, that we wondered why we hadn't saved ourselves the time, energy and expense of not listing with her in the first place She will be our choice if there is a next time and we do refer her to everyone we know already.

Summary of their experience
When my friend first recommended Kim to sell our house, I was a bit reluctant as she came across very down to earth but very professional. I was looking at some other real-estate agents who felt more like type A personalities. When the other agents suggested that we list our house at lower price but Kim mentioned that we list it around the price we wanted and gave us an example of a house she had sold recently around the same price, we decided to go with her. Don't be fooled by her mild manners,when it comes to selling, staging the house and having local connections and knowledge of the real-estate market she is absolutely top-notch. She is a tireless worker. We sold the house in one-day, it was a miracle as one of my friend few months ago had lot of trouble selling his house with another realtor. I am not much into writing reviews but she is one realtor I would not hesitate to recommend to any of my friends or anyone else for that matter.

Summary of their experience
Kim's greatest asset is her vast network of contacts in the community! She was able to make suggestions for whatever issues I needed to deal with during my moving process. My house was listed several times with no offers generated, then Kim took the listing and I had an offer in less than three weeks.

Helped me buy and sell homes


 

Kim helped us in every step and every detail in the process of buying a house. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated. While seeing the house, my husband said "it will be great to have a fenced yard." And she helped us setting up an appointment with contractor the next day. She even went to see the home association board member to get the draft of fenced yard approved. When I asked her about the house pricing history. She did thorough homework in price comparison and explained it to us. She also did research and showed us the data when we make first offer and counter offer. Her negotiation skills are great! She also has her "magic" to calm down my 2 years old daughter while we are inspecting the house and doing paper work in her office. We are very fortunate to have Kim as our agent. I highly recommend her!

  Kim was our realtor when we bought our house 3 years ago. There were multiple issues (of course!) that needed to be negotiated with the seller, including some significant repairs to the electrical system and a crack in the basement wall. Kim navigated us through the process, made us feel very safe in her hands, and followed through with everything. She was professional and friendly and was never ever pushy. She truly wanted us to get the house that was right for us, regardless of the work that meant for her. I will definitely call Kim the next time I need anything real estate in the Iowa City area. She's wonderful!

I was new to the area and received a recommendation from a banker that Kim was the realtor to have to buy a house. Upon meeting Kim she was very friendly and personable. She was very honest and worked with me to find the perfect house I was looking for. I will definitely go through Kim again if I plan to move.

Kim was very helpful and knowledgeable about the price negotiating and the neighborhoods where we house hunted. We would recommend her for any friend or family.

We were very happy with your services and we still love our home. We are so happy here and so proud of our home. We have a lot of work to do on the outside yard but the inside is wonderful.

Kim-

Thank you so much for helping me to buy a house! I came from Russia a few months ago and I was not very familiar with practices and nuances of buying real estate in the US. Being on unfamiliar territory means that you have to have a good help, somebody who can guide you- and I think you, Kim, did it really well!

Working with you I felt really safe, thank you for so detailed answers to the million of my questions! To me, there are two kind which are very important in real estate agent - I have to trust her and she has to have good negotiating skills. Both have exceeded my expectations. I bought a house for less than I expected, I repaired it for less than expected and I saved a fortune! If I face a need to sell or buy more real estate I definitely ask you to help me again!

Dear Kim-

I am so excited for Andy as he heads down this new path set before him! Thank You so much for helping us find him his first "home of his own". And it has been a real pleasure to get to know you, Kim. You made this easy for us, and I feel like I found a new friend along the way :)

There are just a few small gift cards enclosed here.... I thought that Brooke might enjoy Barnes & Noble with you since she loves to read. Panera is one of my favorite casual restaurants , so maybe you will be able to enjoy a little lunch there sometime?

Regretfully, their coffee is not quite as good as the little shop where you treated me at the closing.

Anyway.... I hope you have a good summer ahead of you. Productive at work and time to do some fun things, too!

All my best to you, Kim! I do hope to see you again sometime :)

Pat (& Bob & Andy)

Hopefully when your not busy you can come BBQ with us!!

Thanks,

Kim,

Thank you for sticking things out with me on the sale. You stood well as a professional and a friend. One special thing that comes to mind is when you and Brooke came to my place and did so much work in the basement and the staging help. That was above and beyond anything I could of imagined.

Bill


Kim

It was such a pleasure to work with you on the selling of my Mom's house after her passing.

And you sold it in such a short time!

I thank you for all you did and the professional yet down to earth way you handled yourself through everything you had to put up with especially from you know who.

Have a great summer

Mike Cobur


Hi Kim - while this note is extremely late in coming, please know that I've been thinking about you and trusting that you are doing all right with the flooding there in Coralville and Iowa City.  It's really eerie watching the news and knowing exactly where the places are that are being shown that are under water.  Was your office impacted by all the water?

Even though it's been a few weeks since the closing, I'm still "singing your praises" to colleagues and friends here in Chicago about all the time, energy and effort you put into the sale of my house.  Best of all, not only did I feel like selling my house was a top priority of yours throughout the process, I feel like I've made a new friend along the way.  Your compassion, patience, persistence, sense of humor, realistic viewpoint and expertise in selling property in this difficult market are to be highly commended.  I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to experience your dedication and commitment to the real estate profession.  A very sincere thank you and congratulations for a job well done!

Take care, stay dry and I hope our paths will cross again in the future.

Kim,

Thank you for sticking with me on selling my townhome in North Liberty. You were right there with me all the whole time reassuring me that it would sell and giving me excellent advice, even when I was not so sure it would sell. She also kept me informed on how the showings went. What they liked and didn’t like, unlike some of the other real estate agents I have worked with in the past, she kept me in the loop with what was going on the whole time.

Thank you again Kim for all the time you spent at open houses and answering my questions and following up on all my concerns. You always made time for me and never made me feel like a bother.

Kim I can not thank you enough for all you did for me, especially for putting up with me. You got it sold.
Sincerely

James.
