Testimonials

True Professional with Heart and Soul

A lot of deliberation went into choosing a realtor to sell the house we had lived in for 30 years. At one point we even considered doing a For Sale By Owner - we are so glad now that we didn’t do that.

From start to finish, Kimberly demonstrated the true value of what an experienced and conscientious real estate agent can bring to the process of selling a house; she exceeded our hopes and expectations in every way! Moreover, her creative instincts helped to present our property in its best light, adding a touch of class to the staging and marketing. Intuitive and resourceful, she was great at handling the inevitable challenges which arose along the way.

The team at David Lyng were excellent, providing organization and support throughout the process. It has been a genuine pleasure working with Kimberly for the past few months and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property in this area. Kimberly Parrish is a true professional and also a wonderful person with a lotta heart and soul!

Above and beyond my expectations

Kimberly went above and beyond my expectations in helping me purchase my dream home.

I had an usual situation where I found my dream house and my old realtor (not Kimberly) was not responding.
I then crossed paths with Kimberly at another open house down the street and I asked her to help me. We started paperwork an hour later! Kimberly’s quick responses and exceptional professionalism made the whole process smooth and seamless. She has great judgement and advice. She navigated a competitive situation and gave very specific tactical advice that made all the difference in standing out from the other home buyers.

It was a great pleasure to work with such a caring, considerate professional.
I will wholeheartedly recommend Kimberly to friends and family and would absolutely use her again for my real estate needs. Thank you Kimberly for everything.

Understanding and supportive - a friend

Kimberly was an amazing person to walk through the process of buying my dream home in Santa Cruz. I was actually dreading the process of buying a house, but my friend spoke highly of Kimberly and I have to say, she was great. I never felt pressured by Kimberly and she always listened to what I wanted and answered questions that I had. She was very understanding and supportive. When I would get stressed trying to decide what I wanted, she never got frustrated with me (at least that I knew of... :-) ), but instead told me that it should not be stressful. Of course there is always an element of buying a new home that is stressful, but buying the right home is not a stressor and Kimberly helped with that. And buying a home during a pandemic does add another challenge, but Kimberly managed it all gracefully. She was supportive from the minute we started talking until now two months after I've been in my new home. I consider her a friend and would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.

We were so lucky to have Kimberly Parrish help us navigate the ins and outs of purchasing our first home! She responded immediately and was always willing to listen and help.

It is easy to trust that Kimberly Parrish is working on your best behalf, which is not always the case when it comes to real estate agents. Her authentic communication style, thoughtfulness and caring actions set her apart – she truly goes above and beyond.

Thank you Kimberly for helping us purchase our dream home!

Trusted, A True Partner

I couldn't imagine finding my first home of my own without Kimberly's guidance, hard work, dedication and authentic perspective.

In a tough market and with specific requirements, she worked with me as a true partner in finding my new home. She went the extra mile to find the answers to the many questions this first-time home buyer had, and made what many could consider a stressful process, one full of fun and adventure.

I trusted Kimberly with helping me make one of my biggest life decisions, and she truly came through.

Smooth and fun transaction

Kimberly helped us negotiate our offer and all of the terms so that we were able to buy the home we really wanted at the price we could afford.

She was extremely responsive, proactive and was quick to answer our many questions. She recommended excellent contractors and inspectors and made our lives easier by scheduling appointments with them.

Kim really went above and beyond to take care of our needs including having the gardener prune a special tree dahlia which we thought was dead and now is 12 feet tall! She is trustworthy and dependable and on top of that she made the transaction smooth and fun!

Honest, Caring, Reliable

Kimberly is a friendly, honest, caring, reliable and professional person. She has been extremely patient with us throughout our process of deciding if we really are able and willing to buy a home in Santa Cruz. She has been extremely persistent with us and is always willing to listen. She sent us referrals to mortgage lenders to talk to before we started the process.

Kimberly has great local knowledge and is always pro-active in letting us know about homes that will fit our needs – even those that are not on the market yet. She has up-to-date knowledge of what the market is doing and is always happy to advise and encourage us.

I recommend her highly!
