The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!

I was a first time home buyer, so needed a realtor who could help me through the multiple steps of purchasing my home.
The process of searching for my place was a lengthy one. Kim was wonderful in helping me define my specific home buying needs, supplying me with multiple and continuous viewing options, ensuring prompt viewing appointments, all the while never pressuring me to buy. And she made the negotiating process fun!
When we finally purchased my home, Kim was incredibly helpful in supplying me with her assembled team of professionals: mortgage broker, home inspector, lawyers, handy man, design team, flooring installers, and even movers. She had contacts and referrals for whatever task needed to be done. She made the next steps after the purchase seamless and stress free too, which was so appreciated.
As I now write this letter from my new home, I can truly say that my first home buying experience was an enjoyable one because of Kim's guidance. She is a very hard working professional realtor, meticulous in her personal commitment to her clients. I will hire her again for my next home purchase, and so should you.

Kim is your one stop shop for everything realty. She is diligent, works extremely hard and is absolutely genuine. I consider Kim a key partner in building my property portfolio.

I highly recommend Kim Parish to anyone looking to buy or sell a condo in the Vancouver area. She really knows the market, and how to get amazing results in a short timeframe, even in a down market.
She really exceeded my expectations! Kim was able to sell my condo within 5 days after the listing hit the MLS. In a down market, she was able to make a multiple offer situation happen, with a selling price well over asking. What’s all the more remarkable about this is that 2 other realtors had tried to sell my condo for more than a year and a half, with no offers at all.
Kim also helped me purchase my new condo with great results. I knew exactly which condo I wanted to purchase. However, someone else also wanted it, too, and had already written an offer. Kim helped put together an offer that got accepted, and saved me from overpaying in a multiple offer situation.
I cannot thank Kim enough for helping me to sell my old condo for more than I had hoped, and to purchase my new condo for less than I had expected. Within a month, I went from listing & closing on my old condo, to taking possession of my new condo. Without her great knowledge of the market and exceptional negotiation & coordination skills, none of this would have happened.

I can truly and wholeheartedly recommend Kim Parish as an outstanding realtor.
I started looking for my first home in the fall of 2012, which can be a very stressful venture. It is a big investment and there are many factors and procedures that need to line up in order for the process be completed successfully. In a very short amount of time, Kim helped me land a deal that I am very happy with.
Kim made the whole process easy. She was very accommodating and supportive throughout the entire course from searching for properties, to going through the bidding and negotiation process, to dealing with the logistics of the purchase. At the same time she was very patient and friendly.
Kim is very knowledgeable and comes with intelligent and well-researched advice during all the critical steps along the way. She understands the market very well, and provides honest and intelligent opinions. She would listen carefully to what my needs were, and took all details into consideration.
Kim works very hard and was available with her support and guidance at all times.
Perhaps one of her most important qualities is that she loves what she does. She wants to see her clients happy, and she takes great pleasure in seeing that this very important step is ones life is a joyful one.

Kim is really extraordinary. She is intelligent, and she applies that intelligence to ensure that her client’s needs are met. She understands the market, and spends time to research issues. Her communication skills are remarkable, which made a huge difference in her ability to provide us with excellent guidance, to really listen to what we needed and work to find that, and to negotiate effectively for us.
Of all the realtors we have worked with, Kim is by far the best, in her ability to work hard, to put her client first, in her clear and honest communication, and in her effectiveness. In my thirty years directing non-profit societies, I have worked with many professionals, and again, Kim stands out as one of the most effective professionals I have seen.
Perhaps most importantly, Kim is an old-fashioned honest person who works incredibly hard to provide her clients with the best assistance possible. She was available to us at all hours, and she worked really hard to see our dream house become a reality.
And lastly, Kim is a person with deep integrity and honesty. Her interest is doing the best job she can for her clients. I always felt I could trust her completely, and that felt very important.
In short, Kim Parish is a truly remarkable realtor and professional, and I recommend her highly.
