"We recently purchased a home in the NW Suburbs with Kim as our Buyer's Agent (Winter 2014-2015). We had some tough expectations for what we wanted, and she worked hard to find us our dream home. Kim showed a great knowledge of the NW Suburbs and worked around our schedules for showings and meetings. She helped walk us through our first home purchase and had a great network of referrals for necessities (Lawyers, Home Inspection, Etc.). She was a great asset in the offer and negotiation process, and helped us win the home in a multiple bidder situation and get items corrected by the seller during the inspection process. Kim knew a lot about the different mortgage, tax, and contract procedures in Illinois and if there was something she didn't already know, would have a confirmed answer back to us shortly."

"Kim by far was the best realtor I have ever used, and I have bought and sold quite a few properties. This one happened to be a short sale with the least commission I have sold. Her knowledge and perseverance to get the job done was way above and beyond what I have experienced! She covered every detail, even the ones that I didn't want to deal with or knew how to handle. Kim stayed in constant contact over the year even when there was a lapse of any info to be had. every time we spoke or met in person she was always upbeat and positive. I will never use or recommend anyone but Kim to sell a property or help me find and buy a property. You have a real gem when you chose Kim as your realtor!! "

  -Janie K, Client

"I strongly recommend Kim Suhanek as one of the best real estate agents you can find. She is very easy to work with and always available to schedule house visits and provide valuable advice. Thank you, Kim for all your help on the recent purchase, and the three other before this!"

  -Alex Tosa, Client

"My wife and I feel Kim really looked out for our best interests. She went above and beyond for us. She sold our house in a depressed market and found us the house of our dreams."

  -Jay 6969, Client

"Kim has always been great to work with - she is consistently going above and beyond. She was willing to scout out homes in the locations we were interested and efficiently set up showings for us to see the homes. After showing her a listing, I was interested in seeing - she quickly set up a showing and we loved it. The process started immediately and was completed in one short month. From start to finish, she was professional, efficient, patient and always there for you. We have recommended Kim to our friends and family. She has become our go-to realtor and has been involved in the sale and purchase of 4 different homes of our family and friends. Don't look further for a better realtor - Kim's the best! "

  -Bruce Peterson, Client

"Kim was an absolute delight to work with on the purchase of my first home. From start to finish, she went above and beyond. My work schedule was very tight at the time and I only had one day off - Kim made sure to take full advantage of that time and lined up 6-8 showings per trip to make the house hunt efficient. Kim walked me through every step with great detail and ease. She hunted down tons of beautiful homes in my price and area range that I may not have looked at on my own. One specific example that truly shows how dedicated Kim is as a realtor was when I was roughly 3 weeks from closing on my home when I learned that it was on fire and burning down. After heading to the house and seeing it for myself, I immediately called Kim to let her know what was going on. Less than an hour later, I already had documents stating that my earnest money would be promptly returned, the home inspector and appraiser was willing to work with me on my next home."

  -Holly Peterson, Client

"We had not sold a house in over 40 years so the experience was almost new to us. Kim came over to our house and explained the process and guided us what to do to make the house more saleable. Kim explains things in terms we could understand and even arranged an excellent attorney to help with the closing as we had moved out of state before the house was sold. She even reminded us when to contact the utility companies to shut off services. Kim kept us informed throughout the process and she made the whole thing painless for us from start to finish. We would highly recommend Kim Suhanek as a realtor to anyone. "

  -Jopanoga, Client

"Our relationship with Kim started when we relocated to the Chicago area from Maui. She assisted us in finding a home to rent while we planned on where to buy. When the time came, we looked no further than to Kim, who proved super helpful every step of the way. From her patience to her knowledge of local laws and resources made the process of buying our home far smoother than it could have been -- and for that we are grateful. She really kept us on track to dot the i's and cross the t's."

  -Nico Scherman, Client

"This is my first time buying and Kim is very helpful. She explained a lot to us and showed us what to look for. The transactions are very smooth. Kim was an absolute delight to work with on the purchase of my first home. From start to finish, she went above and beyond. If you have questions for Kim about the house she will follow up with you with the answer. Highly recommend Kim Suhanek for your next home purchase or if you're selling your home! "

"Kim was outstanding to work with and the results were quite amazing. Thanks to her superior approach to listing and selling we had a signed contract in less than 2 weeks in the middle of winter!! We also are very happy with the new home she helped us find! On top of all that she had some fantastic referrals for cleaning crew, handyman and especially the real estate attorney. It was wonderful and reassuring to know she always had our best interests at heart! We certainly can recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell."

  -User 3997538 , Client

"I just wanted to let you know how great Kim was with my family on the house hunting for us. Kim made sure all homes were set up for us to visit and set it up to be able to work with the timelines we had on very short notice. Kim was very good a setting up the homes that were within what exactly we were looking for, her knowledge of the area and experience really showed through. She really made this a fun and great experience, I would recommend her to anyone as she is a true professional and such a great listener to our needs. Her follow through with the closing of the house made it very easy for our family."

  -Hawksnest 51, Client

"Our home sold in 5 days of being out in the market. She is very responsive to our concerns and have acted on it in a timely manner. Her negotiation skills are excellent and she's got a great team working with her. I'm glad she's the one we chose. Such a great person!"

"When my husband told me he wanted To sell our current house house and buy another one , I was apprehensive and terrified. Enter Kim. Kim walked us through the process of buying and selling with knowledge and understanding. She is very knowledgeable about both processes and we learned a lot of very useful information from her during the entire process. She said our house would sell quickly and it did. She was always available to answer all our questions. I would highly recommend her if you want someone who will work hard for you and get results. She is very dedicated and she made the home selling /buying experience one that was stress free and very successful. Thanks so much Kim. Sincerely , Tracie coleman"

  -User 2381207, Client

"What can I say about Kim? She was absolutely AMAZING. I was on a time crunch to find a property as my previous contract on a condo had just been canceled. Kim was responsive, professional and available to view properties immediately. We talked through what I was looking for and even during negotiations she gave her recommendations and the comps in the area to make sure I got the best deal. I am a first time homeowner and she made this process as least stressful and transparent as possible."
