We had decided that we wanted to relocate from WI to AR in order to live close to our kids & grand kids. Kim had listed a house in Jonesboro that we saw online & liked, so we contacted her. Even though that property was no longer available, she basically adopted us and navigated us (okay, held our hands,) through long distance house hunting. We couldn't buy anything until our WI house sold and that took quite a while, several years actually. She hung in there with us the whole time. Whenever we were in the area, she would show us properties that interested us, even though we were not yet in a position to be able to purchase.
Once we could make an offer on a home, she acted as our agent for the offer, provided pictures, videos, coordinated home inspections and got contractor estimates for work needing to be done. She 'carried' us through the process of offers on three different homes, (first offer was rejected due to another offer in play, second was an accepted offer on a house where we terminated our offer due to the amount of work required to bring the house up to a level acceptable for us and the third was for the house in which we now reside.)
There is a saying that it is not what you know but who you know that matters...well Kim KNOWS plenty, whether it be the what's or the who's. She is very knowledgeable and has great contacts to get the job done and she puts all of that together in a seemingly effortless manner on your behalf. She puts her clients and their needs first, no question.
Even after we had everything in play & on track for the purchase of our home here in AR, Kim came to our rescue once again...in relation to the sale of our WI home. While we were visiting AR, the people purchasing our home in WI needed some paperwork completed for their loan approval and it needed to be done before we got back to WI. Although Kim was very busy in the middle of preparations for a big party for a family member, she drove to the office, helped us receive, sign and send the necessary paperwork, then headed back to her party preparations. She did it all without ever making us feel that we were a bother to her.
She took such great care of us and always made us feel special, even though the properties we looked at or could afford were not even close to high dollar. There is no question in our minds that God orchestrated our connection with Kim. He wanted us to work with someone who He knew would take good care of us and help us through the many challenges we would face in our relocating process...without a doubt she was a divine appointment.
She provided us with plastic and paper products so we could have dishes & flatware to eat with before we unpacked any of our real stuff. She also brought some other essentials like toilet paper and garbage bags, etc., that made the moving in process easier. Even after the closing she helped us with coordinating pest control, (critters are bigger and more plentiful here than in WI,) and with some home warranty challenges. She is the real deal.
Whatever your circumstance, you will not do better than working with Kim Stem. She really cares about helping you in your quest for the right home. Should we ever decide to sell our home or buy another one in this area for any reason, Kim is who we will work with...no question about it.
Give her a call, you won't be sorry, you will be blessed.
