Craig and Mary Lou – Lake Elmo/Maplewood
Kim and the team are true professionals. Not only do they know the market and buying trends, they give you an honest and upfront assessment of your options. They then step you through the entire process and anticipate what needs to be done. They have sold 2 homes for us, and both were at the listing price. Kim and the team are focused on the details that make the process happen smoothly. They are excellent communicators and very responsive. We highly recommend them.
Chris & Mel Rogers – Woodbury
Kim was without a doubt, the best realtor I have worked with! My wife and I started the house search while we were living out of state and were dreading having to look for homes remotely. Kim made this process incredibly easy! She is incredibly responsive and has a deep understanding of the Woodbury market. She talked us out of making hasty decisions and helped us find the perfect home!
Jennifer Chester – Woodbury
Kim is a Woodbury Specialist and the Best! She has assembled a top notch team and they made the process so simple and easy. We had two offers the day we listed at and over asking price.
Jamice & Chudi Obianyo – Woodbury
Kim is marvelous! Our selling process was smooth and swift during a slower time of year. Kim’s expertise for the local market analysis was tremendously helpful. Her team was also outstanding in managing the administrative tasks of the home selling process. I highly recommend Kim Ziton!
Brian and Tanya Headly – Woodbury
From the initial presentation Kim was professional and knowledgeable of the area and more specifically our home. She was honest and walked us through each step of the way. We have sold and bought many properties in the past and Kim was always on top and ahead of our questions and concerns. She gave us the confidence needed to entrust in her our listing. Overall it was an awesome process with excellent results.
Peter and Annie Marlenga – Woodbury
Kim Ziton is absolutely amazing at what she does! We were referred to her by a family member, and we could not have been luckier. Kim knows everything about the area, is a master at handling the behind-the-scenes work, and is unbelievably responsive and helpful. After just a few chats, Kim knew exactly what we were looking for, and we ended up in the house our dreams much earlier than we even expected!
Gary and Jean Blinkhorn – Woodbury
Kim Ziton is the type of realtor that everyone should want. She is not only knowledgeable and informative but she is also, patient, when you have a never ending supply of questions, she does what she says she will do. No reminders, no issues. She works hard for her customer and will go the extra mile for you. We had a great experience with her and would not hesitate to use her again. We also worked with her assistant, Lori, who followed through on any issues or questions that we had and was prompt in answering them.
Dan and Leann Janochoski – Woodbury
Kim Ziton and her team were an excellent choice for us to sell our home in Woodbury. She is very professional and has an extensive knowledge of the market. Her team for staging, photography and support were outstanding ultimately leading to a quick sale of our home at a satisfactory price! We would highly recommend Kim as a realtor.
Victoria Amundson – Lake Elmo
Working with Kim was a great experience from start to finish. I bought new construction, and although there was a lot of waiting in between signing the purchase agreement and when the house was complete, Kim made sure to check in several times and see how things were going. She was an excellent advocate for me, and I couldn’t recommend her more!
Murry and Carol Melander – Woodbury
We highly recommend Kim Ziton as a realtor. From start to finish of the entire process we always felt Kim had our best interest at heart. She listened to our wants and needs and then helped us sell our old home and also find a new home that was perfect for us. She accompanied us to a meeting with a builder we’d been working with and asked question we hadn’t thought of asking. Kim is very knowledgeable with buying an existing home and also with the process of building one. We felt very comfortable in her hands. All of this was happening while a family member was terminally ill. We really appreciated Kim’s professionalism and prompt response time during that difficult time. Kim’s assistant Laurie was wonderful to work with too. She always responded quickly to our questions and walked us through things unfamiliar to us. What a great team to work with!
Kevin and Sherri Graham – Woodbury
I would highly recommend Kim as a real estate agent. Kim’s communication skills, professionalism and responsiveness to her clients is one of her key strengths. Her market knowledge, contacts and expertise makes her an invaluable resource. She has great listening skills and is very willing to work with her clients to meet their needs in order to get the deal done!
Ryan and Angela Mann – Woodbury
There’s nobody I would trust more in a real estate transaction than Kim Ziton. Kim is a true professional in every sense of the word. She is always “on” and never misses a beat… her work ethic is second to none and her market knowledge and negotiation expertise is what consistently makes her a top performer in Woodbury. Many times I have emailed Kim in the wee hours of the night… and have been surprised to get a response within minutes… I have often wondered when she actually sleeps 🙂 Not only is she truly talented at what she does, but she is a genuine and kind person, who sincerely wants to find the best home for you and your family, not just the one that will make the quickest sale. When you have Kim as your agent, you know she’s always in your corner, and I can’t recommend anyone more for that job than her!
Matt and Jean Schriner – North Oaks
We had a corporate relocation back to our home state of Minnesota and selected Kim to help us find our home. Kim was a consummate professional. What amazed me most was that as busy as Kim is being a top Realtor, when we were with Kim she was solely focused on our search. Additionally, Kim was prompt in all communication forms. Texts, phone calls and emails were returned very fast and always had good insight and recommendations. And finally, Kim’s negotiation skills were evident in our purchase offering. She understood the process and negotiated with our interests in mind, in a fair and professional manner. We would give Kim our highest recommendation.
Bob and Lori Pounds – Woodbury
Here are the things that I believe sets Kim apart from her colleagues: Preparation, timeliness and a tremendous grasp on market knowledge. Her customer service skills are exemplary and she is acutely responsive. Kim uses her vast market knowledge to provide insightful pricing guidance and will be at her client’s side throughout the entire process. Above all these many fine attributes though, my favorite is her professional demeanor. Kim is a pleasure to work with and although I hope I purchased my last home, were I to be a buyer and/or seller, there is absolutely no doubt about whom I would call.
Kevin and Victoria Tuen-Behm
Kim is truly the best in the business. She is extremely knowledgeable about her field and the area. Kim’s response time is second to none, and she goes well above and beyond for her clients. Kim helped us find and build our dream home and was an invaluable asset and advocate for us throughout the whole process. We can not say enough positive things about our experience with Kim and HIGHLY recommend her.
Mike and Sharon McNulty – Woodbury
This was our second transaction working with Kim. We had a great experience working with Kim on both occasions! She always got back to us quickly and delivered an offer over our asking price on the first day it was listed on the MLS. Thanks again!
Pat and Kelly Gareau – Bayport
Kim was fantastic to work with. Very knowledgeable of the area…worked to learn what my family and I were looking for. When we ran into issues with the appraisal and had to negotiate, she was there to give advice and help us understand our options. Would highly recommend Kim to anyone moving into the area!
Tom and Joy Pelissero – Denmark Township
When it comes to getting the deal done that satisfies both the seller and the buyer, Kim is one to hire. She was open to my ideas and concerns and was very responsive to the changing market place. Works great and communicates often to buyer agent which was particularly important to me. I would recommend her to my family or friends. Real Estate Sales is hard! Hire a pro. Hire Kim.
Bob and Kady Ainsbury – Woodbury
Kim is a top performer for good reason. She understands the marketplace, she’s very professional and responsive and she gets the job done. Better yet she is connected with international and our-of-state buyers.
Tim and Kerry Schilling – Stillwater
Kim goes above and beyond all expectations. She is a true professional. She’s honest, effective and no nonsense. We always felt like she had our best interests in mind and truly cared about our family.
Don and Naomi Klitsky – Woodbury & Hudson, WI
I had 30 yrs. extensive experience in the mortgage business & Kim was the only realtor open/willing to listen/partner with me on the sale price/details of my home. She included my market value opinions/research & incorporated it into our listing price. Other prominent local realtors refused to factor my expertise into it which would have resulted in selling for less than purchased in 2005. On purchase/building side, she attended all meetings & was a key player in all building, exterior/interior selections. Her expertise was exceptional. I highly recommend Kim for truly listening/partnering with me & her expertise on the building side. Couldn’t have done it without her!
Jesse & Beret Robbins – Mahtomedi
We highly recommend Kim Ziton to anyone that wants to sell and or buy a home. Kim made both selling and buying very easy for our family. Kim was attentive and available whenever we needed her. She made the process free from worries or problems. Her and her team of experts were excellent!
Greg and Tammie Thorsen – Woodbury
Kim made the process of selling our home easier than we had anticipated! She responds within minutes of any text or email question we had along the way! (even when she is on vacation) Kim goes above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable with everything from the listing process and getting your home ready to show to the final closing process. We would definitely recommend Kim to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home!
Nick Cress – Woodbury
I have purchased 6 homes in my career. Kim Ziton is by far the most professional and effective realtor in all of those moves. She knows the market well enough to have gotten two offers PRIOR to my house being on the market. She also knows the banking/closing/financial world extremely well. You really don’t have to worry about the details. Then there are the little things….KIm knows all the contractors in the area so that when you need a dependable plumber, or handyman or anything…she knows someone that is good. When you’re moving that is . invaluable. KIm is an amazing realtor.
John and Stacia Vucenich – Woodbury
It became very evident to us that Kim has been local to Woodbury and the surrounding area for many years. She if very knowledgeable in many aspects when looking for your home. She not only knows values, but craftsmanship. She is fast to respond to any questions or concerns and listens to all of your needs as a buyer. From looking at homes, asking questions about multiple homes, to closing, this was a seamless experience. Her professionalism, easy going demeanor, and kindness was helpful in what could be a stressful situation. She is there for you entirely and makes you feel comfortable and at ease with the home buying process. We hope to get this opportunity with Kim again some day.
Adam and Julie Stone-Wolff – Woodbury
Kim is sharp as a tack and quick as a whip, always a few steps ahead of the game and ready to strike. If you need to sell a house she’ll treat you like an adult and give the honest feedback to get listed at a realistic price. If you’re buying I cannot imagine anyone that’d work harder to protect your interests. She handled a relocation sale for us and despite there being the added complexity of a relocation company in the transaction she was always the driver of progress and never, ever the holdup. Highly recommend. List elsewhere at your peril.
John and Annette Hoffbeck – Woodbury
Kim not only was the listing agent on the new home we just purchased and also on our home we just sold. Kim is outstanding! Her knowledge of the market , what we needed to do to sell our home and to win the bid on the new home is beyond compare! We would recommend Kim to anyone either purchasing or selling….she is masterful at both skills!
Jim and Paula Colwell – Maplewood
Kim is a great realtor. Her depth of knowledge and extensive experience along with her attention to detail, well honed communication skills, and a powerful desire to serve the needs of her clients makes her the right choice for anyone looking for a top notch real estate agent. Not only did she provide superb representation for us in the sale of our home but she also went above and beyond to assist us when an unexpected issue arose during construction of our new home. It’s hard to imagine that anyone else would have been able to provide as much skill to our real estate needs as Kim was able to deliver.
Debbie and Jim Miller – Woodbury
Kim was extremely sensitive to our concerns. We were relocating and needed her and her associates to promote outr home. We’ve moved 6 times in our professional lives and worked with countless realtors and never had the experience we had with Kim. Her responsiveness, knowledge ( of the market and our needs) and attentiveness was unmatched. Whether you are moving across town or across the country I highly recommend Kim. She provided such exceptional service selling our first house, we without question had her sell our town home within the same month.
Alan & Dee Robbins – Stillwater
Hands down Kim is the best real estate agent I have worked with. We would have missed out on buying the house of our dreams had Kim not called the listing agent to schedule a showing from the airport just as she got off the plane from a vacation. Now that is service! Kim worked hard for us. She even helped us sell our existing home and dealt with issues that came up in the most professional manner that assured we would not lose a potential buyer. A solid 10! Why work with anyone else!
Dani Deering – Woodbury
Words are simply inadequate to express what a wonderful experience it was to work with Kim on the sale of our home. We had previously listed our home with another agent who fell far short of being professional and further, failed to acknowledge they were out of their scope in trying to sell our home but continued to make a bad situation worse. We were nervous about how the process would go after that experience. Kim came highly recommended. Although we interviewed a few agents, I knew from the very first meeting that we were in Great hands! Kim is extremely knowledgeable and honest, very professional, super responsive and very pro-active. I am a busy professional myself and place a high value on organization, results and integrity. While buying/selling are exciting but stressful, Kim made the entire process seamless and easy and did so with a smile. From our very first meeting I was so impressed that she had already researched comps in our area and had put together a strategy on how best to market our home. She was honest and open about what she could deliver and what we could and should expect. She introduced us to her very experienced support team and made sure we were informed of everyone’s roll and how they fit into her sales strategy. She listened to our concerns and answered all my questions throughout the process. She responded immediately to any inquiries and handled any questions based on the expectations we’d set forth. Kim knows how to do her job extremely well and demonstrated that with us – we never felt like we had to make professional suggestions or felt unsure/uncomfortable about how things were being handled. Our house sold in less than 3 weeks. Kim handled everything down to the letter right through closing. There are not many times you can term a home sale as wonderful experience – but this one certainly was. I’ve worked with a few agents over the years with other home sales and purchases – hands down Kim is simply the best! I would and do recommend her to everyone.
Marty and Carol Eggerss – Woodbury
“We knew that Kim was a top agent for premium homes in our area. We asked her to “preview” our home a few months prior to when we planned to sell, in order to get her perspective on any repairs, improvements, final preparations and staging ideas that would be helpful in achieving a quick sale at the best price possible. Kim offered several key suggestions, including contractors she knew who could best perform the work. We were able to have these items completed over the next 3 months, and our home looked and felt fantastic! During the listing process, we felt that one of Kim’s key strengths was in her thorough and professional approach to marketing the home. The extensive and unique photography used (some via drone) was simply amazing – and the resulting brochures and other sales literature were of extremely high quality with great visual appeal. We decided to list the home at the top of the price range Kim suggested. Our “For Sale” sign and listing went up on a Friday. On Saturday, we had four showings and by Sunday morning had three offers! Kim asked the three potential buyers to submit their “best offer” and on Monday evening we signed a sale agreement for well above our asking price! Kim responded quickly to all of our questions throughout the entire process – through preparation, during the frantic(!) showing/sale weekend and through final closing. She uses all current methods of electronic communication very effectively and to her advantage. As you can imagine, we were extremely pleased with Kim and the results she achieved for us. She receives our highest recommendation!”
Ed & Lanette Sowle – Woodbury
“We learned about Kim from sellers who had sold homes in our neighborhood. In fact, Kim sold the homes on each side of our home. After talking with our neighbors it was clear that Kim had left a favorable impression with them. Our experience with Kim was nothing short of outstanding! There is no one that knows the Woodbury area more than Kim. She offered advice on changes to our home to more effectively market its sale, when we should put our home on the market and staging our home for sale. Our home sold in 24 days. Kim helped with the sale our home, located a new home for us and we closed on both properties within ~4 weeks. She is knowledgeable, friendly and driven to succeed. I would recommend her to anyone considering selling their property. Kim is one of the best we have ever worked with.”
Jason and Nancy Lueders – Woodbury
“Working with Kim was top notch from beginning to end. She has incredible industry knowledge, work ethic and is very responsive in her communications. Although she had a full roster of clients, Kim made us feel like her only client and was very flexible and open to working in a style that meshed well with our personalities to meet our objectives. Throughout the process of buying and selling, Kim guided with patience. In addition, we appreciated access to the exceptional contacts she’s cultivated throughout the years. Without hesitation we recommend Kim.”
Maureen Bailey – Woodbury
“Kim knew the market better than anyone else and was straight-forward no BS. She was very professional in bringing the home to market. Her follow up was exemplary, returned all calls promptly and was pro-active in addressing what could have been issues. Home sold in 4 days a t list price. Cannot recommend Kim more highly!!”
Matt & Amanda Svendsen – Woodbury
“My wife and I had a fantastic experience working with Kim! Her expertise and knowledge of area home prices, school districts and neighborhoods with kids led us to the perfect home. Throughout our home-search, Kim was extremely responsive and professional with every interaction. She asked great questions and really listened to what was important to us. These are all traits that we really value and made our home-buying experience top-notch. We would recommend Kim to anyone looking to purchase a new home Thank you Kim!”
Wonyoung Chang – Woodbury
“Absolutely phenomenal, within weeks of replacing our previous agent with Kim, we were able to get an offer, sign, and close out the sale! She is very knowledgeable with the area and has a very good understanding of the real estate in mid to high end properties. Recommended for everyone who’s looking to make the best bang for the buck!”
Dave & Alison Archer – Woodbury
“It would be difficult to exaggerate how fantastic of a job Kim did for us when we were selling our home in Woodbury! It was clear from our first meeting that Kim had the experience, localized knowledge, and tenacity to get the job done. We were impressed with her responsiveness. Despite the fact that she manages a large number of listings and clients, we always felt that we had her full attention. She was also very diligent on following up with every lead, trying to identify and close the gap with virtually everyone that walked through our home. She also proved to be a very skilled negotiator. I honestly can’t think of anything more that we could have expected from her. We’ve sold several homes over the years and Kim was by far was the most talented agent we’ve worked with.”
Alyssa Dornfeld – Woodbury
“Kim did an incredible job of marketing my home. She is the utmost professional. My home sold in the middle of a difficult divorce, which made the sale challenging. If there was any way Kim could help, she did – from recommending home repair people to staging the house. She gives great advice, follows through on every detail and leaves nothing to chance. I appreciated her “Let’s get it done” attitude. I’m very grateful Kim was my realtor and sold my house!”
Mike & Julie Johnson – Woodbury
“Kim is, above all, honest and accurate in every aspect of helping us sell and buy our homes. She is the hardest working agent in the east metro area, and on top of that, she remains extremely accessible when you need anything from her. She is a pleasure to work with and know.”
Jenny West – Maplewood
“Kim is an amazing professional. I had to sell and sell quickly and I’m sure glad I chose Kim as my realtor. She is truly an expert. We were on the market in a matter of days – and sold within a month. Kim truly knows her stuff! Not only did she help me sell my existing home – she also helped me find a new one. She was always available for my questions and requests. I would recommend her to anyone!”
Tim Stuewer & Susan Song – Woodbury
“We happened to come across Kim when searching for a new home. The level of responsiveness, professionalism, help and support has surpassed any previous experience!! Collectively my husband and I have purchased over ten homes and Kim has substantially raised the bar!”
Rob & Angie Reeves – Woodbury
“Kim Ziton is the best Realtor we’ve ever worked with! We came into the house hunting experience with hesitancy, not sure we’d find what we were looking for within our budget. Kim was relentless in her pursuit to help us get in the home of our dreams. She was always available, ready to listen, problem solve, and help move negotiations forward. We would highly recommend Kim Ziton for anyone seeking to purchase or sell a home. She is THE BEST there is!”
Jeff & Kelly Lavers – Woodbury
“Kim listed our home. She explained the process and made excellent suggestions to maximize our sale price and time line. Once an offer cane in, she negotiate fairly and respectfully on our behalf. It was obvious from the beginning that Kim knows the real estate business, and lives the real estate business! We would recommend Kim to anyone in Woodbury.”
Dave and Tracey Koller – Woodbury
“We had a wonderful experience working with Kim Ziton. Kim understands the Woodbury market better than anyone we’ve met and is genuinely dedicated to working with her clients to help them make the best decisions possible.

We would recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!”
Brad & Kate Horst – Woodbury
“Kim is truly one of a kind when it comes to customer service! She is always very responsive to requests and questions and there was never a moment where we were left guessing during the process of selling and buying a home.

We would definitely use her again in any real estate transaction.”
Caroline Evans – Woodbury

She works hard and smart for her clients. Kim is experienced and knowledgeable and will go above and beyond to help you through the process. She comes very prepared and well researched. Kim is very professional and patient.
Kim is wonderful about being available for questions into the evening.
I would recommend and work with Kim again.”
Eric and Kami Kirksson – Stillwater
“Expert real estate agent, yet down to earth and personable. She makes you feel like you are her only client. Cunning negotiating skills. Extremely knowledgeable of the Woodbury and Stillwater areas. We built a home with Derrick Companies and she was there with us every step of the way. She used to be a builder rep many years ago so she has the inside scoop when it comes to building a house. She answers texts, emails, etc. Very promptly and always follows up.”
Gary and Kate Giel – Lake Elmo

Kim is extremely passionate about real estate and working for her clients. She helped our family find the perfect house at a great price.

We would not hesitate to recommend Kim to anyone seeking a top notch real estate professional. ”
Chris & Maggie Hatch – Woodbury

I would definitely work with Kim again and would highly recommend her to others!”
David Holleran – Woodbury

She grounded her assessments with facts struck the a nice balance of emotion and objectivity. She single handedly pre-marketed the property and we received multiple offers all above listing price. Kim’s network of real-estate professionals were invaluable in getting this transaction done smoothly. I would highly recommend Kim Ziton.

Sirva & Kalpana Kulanthaivelu-Sambasivam
“We had a wonderful experience with Kim while selling our home. She is truly the best agent , from the beginning till the end of the process, she excels in everything she does and meets beyond expectations. She is very knowledgeable and prepares herself starting from the first meeting getting to know more about the home and helps from staging, offering good tips and gives personal attention on everything . She is amazing on follow ups after showings and always responds to us immediately as if we are the only clients and stays on top of things all the time. I could not believe the testimonials myself when other people have written about her service and her commitment. But we experienced ourselves while working with her. She negotiated our sale during her family vacation, she is very dedicated and committed to work. She gives her honest inputs and always available to share any concerns and very friendly to work with. I will highly recommend her to anyone who are looking for a realtor . You will be glad that you found her.”
Carl & Denise Bridges – St. Louis Park
“We used Kim for a corporate relocation, she was extremely helpful in helping us to craft a strategy that would minimize the amount of time our home would be on the market and maximize the selling price by demonstrating a firm understanding of the neighborhood benefits and home selling points and counseling us on how to market it. Our home sold in less than 24 hours!!!”
Chris Cheng – Woodbury
“Kim is the best RE agent I have ever worked with. Her never-come-down energy level and utmost professionalism helped us tremendously during our home-purchasing process. I would recommend Kim in a heart-beat to anyone. While her specialty is in the high value exec homes, she can literally work with anyone and provide the best and unmatched service in Twin Cities area.”
Mike and Donna Amundson – Lake Elmo
“We contacted Kim Ziton after doing a little research to find the best agent to guide our home search in the Lake Elmo/Woodbury area. We interviewed Kim and knew right away that she was the representative we were looking for. Kim is cheerful, articulate and has boundless energy. Kim is also a great listener–she listened to our specific criteria, listened as we debated whether to build or buy (she can represent you for both), got to know our timeline and budget, and went to work. She helped us learn about neighborhoods and their history, about builders, and about the community. We found the perfect house among the first four that we viewed. That’s where Kim really began show what separates the few great agents from the large number of realtors out there. She helped us arrive at a reasonable offer, and got the house under contract quickly. Using her contacts, she was able to arrange for a highly qualified inspector to complete the inspection within days. This brought us to another critical point in the process: which items to ask to have repaired, and which could be noted but ignored. While all items in the report will eventually have to be dealt with, Kim helped us to identify the major items, which the sellers agreed to repair. Kim was there for the final walk-through and closing, both of which went smoothly, and we’re excited and pleased with our new home. Whether buying or selling, the agents involved will generally be paid the same. Why wouldn’t you choose the best to represent you? We’re glad we chose Kim Ziton.”
Barry and Kristy Larsen – Woodbury
“Kim went above and beyond and really made our transactions appear routine. At the time of our listing the market had very little inventory. Kim used her knowledge and expertise of a particular area to find us a home before it ever hit the market. Kim is meticulous with her follow up and extremely passionate about her profession. She brings high energy and confidence which makes buying and selling a home with her very easy. Kim is honest, trustworthy and hard working. I would recommend Kim to anyone because she is driven to be the best at representing her clients. In my opinion she is as good as it gets. We consider Kim a friend of our family. ”
Joe & Paloma Shillings – Woodbury
“Kim made buying our new home a smooth and efficient process. Her knowledge of the Woodbury real estate market was incredible, and she guided us through every step of the process. Kim is incredibly professional and took care of every detail – going above and beyond to ensure our needs were met.”
Gene and Kathy Johnson – Woodbury
“My husband and I cannot say enough good things about working with Kim Ziton on the sale of our home. We had worked with a couple of realtors previous to Kim but neither showed as much passion in their work. Kim is the ultimate professional. From the moment of your first meeting until the completion of the sale of your home she is attentive to every request or question you may have. Kim is in constant contact with her clients and responded to every call we made to her within an hour. I have never seen as many sold signs on houses as the ones that have Kim Ziton’s name associated with them.”
Dick and Bobbie Elliott – Woodbury
“My father and husband were in the military so when we contracted Kim Ziton, it was my fortieth move. Our four children were married so it was time to leave our “dream home” of 17 wonderful years and downsize.
Kim sold our large home in 10 days and helped us buy an equivalent home forty-eight hours later. We have been in our new home 3 months and are amazed at how her attention to detail has met our every need beyond anything we could have ever imagined or hoped. She accomplished this through her following excellent standards:
*Kim was extremely sensitive to our emotions and desire for an elegant home equivalent to what we had.
*Appreciating that we were also anxious to make the move as soon as possible and be settled again, Kim invested time to get to know us so she could sale our home quickly and show us exactly what we were looking for.
*Even though she is highly sought after and has many clients at the same time she made us feel like we were her only focus.
*She was always available when we needed her and her attention to detail and standards were beyond reproach.
*She is extremely experienced and knowledgeable in all areas of her profession. Her advise helped us de-clutter and “stage” our home for a quick sale.
*Her wisdom in setting the right price to sale our home was also very beneficial.
*As we looked for our new home, Kim helped us keep our focus.
*She was courageously honest to guide us away from a home that was alluring but would have been a poor financial investment.
*Kim was always efficient, wise, organized, considerate, and very professional at all times.
Out of all the realtors we have worked with Kim was beyond comparison in all areas.
Kim Ziton has truly earned her accolades as top realtor in the Twin Cities.”
Jay and Beth Wright – Cottage Grove
“Kim consistently listened and implemented our wish list when looking for a home (even when it changed). We were never pressured to look above our price point. She was patient and professional throughout this process with both of us. Kim was available by both phone and email throughout the day AND evenings. We would both recommend Kim without reservation to any home buyer.”
Rick and Barb Miller, Stillwater
“Kim was a joy to work with. She was always professional, prompt and intelligent. We appreciated her opinions and advice. She was not afraid to spend some advertising dollars to market our home aggressively. She also provided useful feedback on a weekly basis, like clockwork. We will recommend Kim to anyone we know looking to buy or sell their home.”
Tom and Mary Asenbrenner – Woodbury
“Our experience with Kim Ziton in the purchase of our new home and the sale of our existing one could not have been better! While she has expert knowledge of the local real estate market, she was also incredibly responsive to our many questions and spot-on with her advice and recommendations. Because of her prep recommendations and extensive network of buyers and agents, our house sold on the first day of listing at full asking price! It was obvious that Kim will do whatever she can to make the process go as smoothly as possible, leaving all parties happy with the result and on good terms. We have already referred Kim to family members and we will definitely look to her again if/when we move again.”
Rod and Linda Deroy – Woodbury
“We met Kim a few years back, at one of her model homes. She listed our townhome in Woodbury in 2011, and it was sold within the month. We found Kim to be an exceptional agent, very knowledgeable of the real estate market. We really appreciated how she kept us informed and answered any questions we had about the sale of our home. We have and will continue to recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property!”
Craig and Sharon Lewis – Woodbury
“I have been a house nut for many years and have dealt with a large number of realtors. Our experience with Kim was fabulous. She is, without question, far and away the most professional realtor I have ever seen. She is state of the art in embracing technology, but still delivers good old fashioned service. She has a highly disciplined client service model that assures each client has a great experience–consistency in her communication, attention to detail and in-depth market knowledge. When you meet her, she explains the client experience you may expect from her, and you are not disappointed. Lastly, I would say that her approach is that of researcher and counselor. She is disciplined and patient in helping each client achieve their objectives. Never any pressure for the quick deal. With her experience and success, she does it right and good outcomes follow along naturally. We are very big fans!”
Dave and Beth Timm – Woodbury
“If anyone is searching for a real estate agent who’s aim is to completely satisfy her clients, look no further than Kim Ziton! Our experience working with Kim Ziton has been wonderful. Our purchasing journey over the last year has demanded patience, attention to detail, and extensive knowledge of Woodbury, MN and the surrounding area. Kim Ziton was there for us in every measure. We had specific details we were looking for in our new home, and Kim tirelessly searched and kept us updated as new homes were emerging on the market with the details we sought. Kim is very knowledgeable of the builders in Woodbury and the features they put into their homes. Extremely helpful in our search.
We were living in the Chicago area as we were making decisions on homes in the Woodbury area. Kim was so quick to zero in on our likes and dislikes that it only required one single-day trip to Woodbury for us to write up a Purchase Agreement and buy the home we really wanted. That is SO positive in a world today where so many are very busy in their work and don’t have the luxury of inexhaustible time to search for and look at homes.
Kim is professional, personable, and has exhaustive knowledge in real estate. She has our highest praise and we’d recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.”
Anders and Andrea Wolf – Woodbury
“We had a great experience selling our house with Kim and buying our new home. The combination of her extensive knowledge of Woodbury market, connections with other real estate professionals and potential buyer, aggressive marketing plan and not least a 24/7 responsiveness beyond anything we have experienced before made a difference. She kept us informed and stayed in constant contact with other parties throughout the process to ensure everything went smoothly. We sold in 9 days.”
Jeff and Kathy Stone – Woodbury
“We bought a home in Woodbury and sold our other home in Woodbury with Kim, Kim was exceptionally knowledgeable of the other homes, transactions and agents in the area. Because of this, she was able to negotiate a favorable price for us on a home that we had been interested in for several years, even with multiple offers on the table. Kim did a great job explaining the market values to us so that we did not make the mistake of a low-ball offer that would have cost us the bid, Kim was the most responsive salesperson we have ever encountered. Her timely response and persistence was also a factor in us being able to close smoothly and quickly on the transaction. In spite of the numerous dialogues, she was always very pleasant to work with and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Due to her contacts we were able to get a mortgage rate much lower than our current bank.”
Kenn and Renie Herbert – Woodbury
“Kim is absolutely the best agent in Woodbury, if not beyond. She was the only agent we interviewed that was totally up front and honest regarding the sale of our former dream home that had turned into a nightmare. While other agents tried to sugar coat what needed to happen, Kim told us the reality and headed us down the right path. We ended up with a short sale but with Kim’s help it was relatively easy. She guided the process, with perfect assistance from Nita in her office who negotiated everything with our lenders. Both Kim and Nita responded almost immediately to our calls and text messages and made us feel extremely at ease. She showed us numerous houses but when we found the house that we eventually settled on, it was a FSBO. Kim was extremely gracious and told us that her ultimate goal for us was to move on, find a great place to live and be happy. Transactions with Kim were always handled in a professional manner but there was always the feeling that we were dealing with a good friend. Kim is the real deal folks so my suggestion, if you’re looking for a realtor, run, don’t walk, to Kim’s door. You’ll be glad that you did!”
Danny and Maggie Zheng – Woodbury
“We have relocated to the twin cities recently. Kim helped us found a rare home in a very nice Wedgewood community in Woodbury. It’s a blessing that we found Kim, who is very knowledgeable of the local market and a most responsive agent I have ever worked with. We did encounter some bumps during the buying process because there were multiple parties involved on the selling side and we had an aggressive timeline. Kim was able to proactively manage the entire negotiation and drive it to a on-time closing. Even after the closing, I have received several follow-ups from her to make sure we are doing ok. We will use her again for our next real estate transaction.”
Jim and Becky Maxwell – Woodbury
“From the first moment we met Kim we were impressed by her professionalism and knowledge of the local market conditions. Kim was a perfect fit for us to both sell our current home and purchase a new one. Kim was always easy to communicate with returning calls and messages sometimes within minutes. Kim never hesitated showing us properties and giving us her honest opinion. Kim does a great job leaving little to chance and makes sure things get done in a timely matter. We were truly impressed with Kim’s seemingly endless amount of energy and commitment to her clients needs. In fact I can not remember Kim saying “no” or “I can’t”!! I would and most certainly will use Kim again in the future for my real estate needs. Kim is truly a master of her craft.”
Paul and Medora Benson – Woodbury
“We had the opportunity to work with Kim in both selling a home and then buying a new one. Kim’s experience and professionalism combined with amazing market knowledge, made her a clear choice in who we wanted to represent us. She was right on with the advice she provided through out the process and was always quick to respond to questions. Kim took the time to understand what our family was looking for and then helped us accomplish these goals with great care. She truly exceeded expectations is every aspect! We are very grateful to have worked with her and highly recommend Kim’s services to anyone.”
Scott and Lisa Speakman – Woodbury
“My husbands company wanted us to move to Minnesota and we were given a realtor through this process. Because I was unhappy with the realtor that the relocation company suggested, I began to research the best realtor that I could find in the area that I was most interested in. I chose Kim Ziton because she had an amazing track record and I could tell she was a hard worker. Kim Ziton responded back to me immediately with every question or concern that I had regarding real estate. Because of the time difference between California and Minnesota, I often would text or email when it was very late for her. I never expected for her to reply immediately on those occasions but she often responded immediately. She always took the time to give me detailed and thoughtful insights and never made me feel like I was bothering her. Kim Ziton is a professional at what she does. She knows the area extremely well and is well informed. I would highly recommend her to sell or help someone buy a home near or around Woodbury MN.”
Todd and Carin Adams – Woodbury
“My husband and I decided to sell our home, with a lot of realtors out there to choose from we kept seeing Kim’s name. I looked Kim up on her website and found numerous testimonials raving about how wonderful she was. We decided to give her a call and within the first minute speaking with her I knew we had a great agent. Kim is professional and really knows the Woodbury area! The biggest compliment I can give Kim is that no matter what time of the day or night Kim will always answer her phone or get back to you within minutes! She really makes you feel like her top priority! Needless to say we sold our home in less than two weeks and went as smooth as silk! I highly recommend Kim! You will be glad you chose her!”
Paul and Becky Rombach – Woodbury
“Kim Ziton’s professionalism, knowledge of the industry, and knowledge of our community are what drew us to her. Throughout the entire process from beginning to end, Kim was always available to answer any questions, calm any fears, and provide professional and positive points of view. Her respect for competitors was also impressive, always holding them in the best regard. Kim not only worked with us to create the best marketing opportunities for our home, but she also personally promoted our home as well. It was a pleasure working with Kim, we would use her again.”
“My experience with Kim Ziton is a wonderful memory. Kim was there for me and my family through the entire process. I bought a short sale home and it took a long time from beginning to end and there was not a single time that I could not reach Kim for guidance or assistance Kim went out of her way to make this home buying process a pleasant experience for me. Kim was proactive and keep me informed though out the process. I have recommended Kim Ziton to my friends and plan to have Kim Z help me look for another home in the future.”
David and Kara Nelsen – Woodbury
“My wife and I are both busy professionals with three young boys, so having an agent that could work with our crazy schedules was a must. We also wanted an agent that was an expert in the east metro housing market. Kim exceeded our expectations in both of these regards. Kim was always available whether live on the phone, via email, or through text messaging. Kim even met me at the home we eventually purchased on Christmas Eve to let me do another walk-through before we made an offer. We relied heavily on Kim to give us her expert opinion on the various communities in Woodbury as they can seem very similar and confusing to families like us who were unfamiliar with the area. Kim also went up and beyond in giving us detailed information on the many school options, both public and private, in the Woodbury area.”
Mary Martin, Woodbury
“Working with Kim was a very positive experience. I found her very professional and knowledegable, supportive and easy to work with. She was respectful of personal tastes and helpful with the stress of moving. I would list or buy from Kim again!”
Tony & Summer Eger – Stillwater
” I was relocating my family from Sioux Falls, SD to Stillwater, MN. As this was my ninth relocation in 18 years with my company I was no rookie to the home buying experience and have had my share of less than stellar real estate “professionals” . Kim really took the time to get to know my families needs instead of just showing us homes at the top end of my price range. Kim made this relocation the most stress free by far from a home buying standpoint. Kim did all the leg work and concentrated on the homes we really would be interested in. Kim’s knowledge of the market and her expertise of the Real Estate profession is second to none.”
“Kim was absolutely outstanding and I am usually a very “tough grader.” We had a trying family situation and she navigated the entire process very well in a pathetic housing market.
She was always available and got everything done before I asked. Fantastic. ”
Nick & Meagan Weber, West Lakeland
“Working with Kim was like working with someone I’ve known for years. My wife and I were split between buying a home or building a new home on acreage and Kim helped guide us through the process. She helped us look for land and get quotes to build. She exhausted all avenues and helped us determine that building was not for us. Kim took the time to listen to our want’s and need’s and with her vast knowledge of the area was able to pin point a neighborhood and a home that fit us perfectly.
She did an excellent job!”
John & Julie Servatius – Woodbury
“There’s not a more responsive realtor on the planet. It’s true. Kim really know the neighborhoods and has a really good handle on this ever-changing, ever-volatile market. She thinks of every detail. You will never have to wonder what’s going with your house search or with your purchase negotiation. She’ll have called you back before you even hit send.”
Robert & Marquita Stephens
“Thanks Kim for your support, professionalism, and honesty in selling our home during an important life transition for us. It made all the difference.”
Tom & Jan Standke, Woodbury
“In this very difficult real estate market, Kim Ziton has proven to be an expert beyond anything we could have hoped for. Her tireless dedication, innovative ideas and pure determination are the reason we sold our home. I have been the Division President for three Minnesota home building companies, and have been in the business since 1980. I wish I had Kim on my sales and marketing team at any of those companies, as she would have been the undisputed leader!”
“I have been in the relocation industry for over 13 years and know the challenges; however, Kim made the process seamless. She never assumed, always asked the right questions and all paperwork was entirely in order from the listing to the offer. She provided informative updates I needed to make listing decisions to procure a buyer. I highly recommend her as an agent and I know that she will work as an advocate for both her relocation company and her seller.”
George & Amanda Kattner
“She is the best!
I would recommend Kim to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent and especially to job relocation folks that need a partner in the area who can search while you are away and that has an in depth knowledge of the neighborhoods.
My family and I recently relocated to the Twin Cities for a job relocation. Kim was referred to us from co-workers at my company and am grateful we were able to work with her. We have had experience working with many agents on prior homes and Kim puts them all to shame. She sets the bar high for other real estate professionals. She was extremely responsive and accommodating to our schedules. We were confident and comfortable with her the entire home search and purchase process. My family is now settled in our new home with the help of Kim and we could not be happier. I have never met a harder working agent and will surely use Kim if we ever need to sell our home. ”
Mark and Anne Koop, Woodbury
“We would highly, highly recommend Kim to anyone interested in selling their home. We received a full price offer within a day, what more is there to say! Besides being extremely professional, responsive, and organized, Kim is a delight to work with. You will be happy you contacted her!”
William Milbauer, Woodbury
“Kim Ziton takes being a realtor to a level of professionalism that was beyond my expectations. As a busy executive, I really appreciate responsiveness, intelligence, hard work and professionalism. Kim exceeded my expectations in each of these areas and made the process very easy for me. Her marketing materials and overall campaign were incredibly impressive and unlike anything I’ve seen before. She understood my needs and approached the home sale with incredible energy, creativity and enthusiasm.
Whenever I needed Kim, her responsiveness and effort exceeded my expectations by a long shot. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.”
Therace Risch, Shoreview
“Thank you so much for selling my home. In this market, all home owners that are hoping to sell need a realtor that will go “above and beyond” the call of duty. You certainly did that when selling my home – – whether it was the thoughtful time you spent ensuring my home was staged properly to the consistent follow-up with each “looker” that had any interest to the fair, but tough negotiation that you worked through for the final sale. I know I am not your only client, but through my selling process, you sure made me feel that way. Thank you!!!”
David and Wendy Kunz, Woodbury
“We were very pleased by the representation we received from Kim Ziton in the sale of our home. She followed up on all showings and obtained timely feedback. She did an excellent job of monitoring market conditions and was straightforward in recommending a realistic price for our house. We were fortunate to sell our house in less than nine months in a housing market where listings of a year or longer are not uncommon. We felt a strong sense of commitment from her in the sale of our house. Her attention to detail, professional manner and continuous follow-up were obvious throughout the process. Kim’s hard work, dedication and excellent communications helped us feel good about selling and leaving our home. We would certainly have Kim represent us in any future home sales.”
Scott and Lori Mallory, Inver Grove Heights
“Not like anyone else I know. A true standout and compliment to the real estate profession. Kim assisted me with locating a location and subsequently building with Kootenia Homes. She is personable, professional, understands her market and knows quality and value. Kim isn’t just trying to sell you something to “get the deal and a commission.” I felt she was interested in me finding a “home” that I would value and enjoy. I consider Kim a business associate and a friend. Relationship and service after the sale have been just as strong as when I was working with her during the process. How many real estate agents can you consider as a friend? Call Kim, but hold on to your socks as she is motivated and has more energy than anyone I know.
A true professional.”
Dwight and Rita Wood, Woodbury
“Kim can be summed up in three words, integrity, honesty, even when it’s not what you want to hear, and commitment. We enjoyed working with a true professional.”
Steve and Diane Mog, Woodbury
“We had the chance to work with Kim Ziton in the fall of 2001. Kim, a sales representative for Kootenia Homes, sold us our lot and facilitated our building plans. This was an unusual undertaking because it was a long distance project. Steve was living in the Twin Cities, while I stayed in Pennsylvania until January 2002. Kim was our go to person throughout the buying and initial building process. We couldn’t have had a successful project without her.
Kim was extremely professional throughout our experience with her and Kootenia Homes. She was very accessible and followed up on any question or concern promptly, which was so important during our project. Kim always went above and beyond what she needed to do to make sure we were satisfied customers!
We would highly recommend Kim Ziton as a real-estate sales consultant. Her attention to detail is her greatest strength!”
Lesa Hobright-Turner, Woodbury
“We had a wonderful experience with Kim when we built our Kootenia home. Her experience in the industry brought out creative solutions that helped us stay within the budget we set. Additionally her knowledge of the housing marketing guided us in what elements of our home we should invest in and would provide a return on investment and other elements that may not provide for good resale. Her endless passion on wanting to help home buyers make the right decision made our experience wonderful. I would work with Kim again in a heartbeat.”
Dave and Michelle Schumacher, Woodbury
“We have had the pleasure of working with Kim Ziton throughout the entire process of building our home with Michael Lee and can say unequivocally that her professionalism and attention to detail was exceptional. We were transferred here from out of state, and Kim went above and beyond guiding us through the entire process. We were so pleased to have her volunteer to take us around the Twin Cities to choose things for our new home. This in no way was required or expected of her, but she gladly took us shopping and offered her opinion when asked, which we valued a great deal.
Kim takes her job very seriously and was always available to answer any questions or concerns during the 7 months that we worked closely with her. She was always quick to respond to the many calls and e-mails we sent, and told us to never hesitate to contact her for anything. Because of this, it allowed us to feel very confident that she had our best interest at the forefront. If she didn’t know the answer to a question, she said she would find out and always got back to us very promptly. Based on other experiences we have had, this is almost unheard of. The service we received from Kim was exceptional!
In closing, we hold Kim in very high regard and would recommend her as a Realtor whom we know you would be pleased to work with. Based on our experience, Kim will work very hard and with tremendous diligence in guiding you through the real estate maze. We can say with confidence that her dedication to her clients, knowledge of the housing market, and professionalism will bring you great results!”
Jim and Sandee Bates, Inver Grove Heights
“We are happy Kim Ziton asked us for a personal recommendation. As a sales agent for Kootenia, she took us from start to finish through our first home building experience.
Kim started by greeting us warmly at the model and introducing us to the development and various house plans without scaring away the reluctant husband; later slogged through the snow with us to survey potential lots in a development with unfinished streets; and carefully guided us through the long and sometimes difficult design process.
We both were pleasantly surprised Kim took the time to get to know both of us and what each wanted in the house often inconsistent views. She was an especially effective advocate with the builder, often coming up with an elegant solution for something we couldn’t properly articulate to the designer, or gently convincing him our ideas were worth considering. If we came up with something impractical or just plain wrong, whether because of our inexperience or otherwise, Kim always had a diplomatic way to a better plan, and sometimes we even thought we may have come up with it ourselves
We came to trust anything Kim told us, whether it had to do with design, cost estimates, what to expect as the designing and building went along, or anything else.
Ours was one of the first homes in the development, and Kim worked out of the models for quite some time. During the building process and thereafter, we regarded Kim as a friend and in some ways a neighbor. Other folks who built with Kootenia were consistent in their praise for Kim’s attention to detail and her commitment to making each buyer’s home uniquely their own, and something she could point to with pride.”
Tom and Janet Payne, North Oaks
“We were looking for a maintenance free home and were interested in the Villas of Wilkinson Lake, North Oaks. We visited a model home there which was built by Kootenia Homes. Kim Ziton was the representative of Kootenia Homes and after talking with her for several minutes, we felt that she knew just what we wanted in a new home. Kim is very focused on discovering what people want in a new home and has the ability to convey those needs to the builder at the beginning of the process. That made it so much easier on us. Kim has such a clear understanding of the home buying and building business and communicates that very well to the client. We were very happy that we had Kim get us started on our new home project and now have a very beautiful new home in the Villas of Wilkinson Lake, North Oaks.”
Jeff and Karen Montpetit, Woodbury
“We worked with Kim buying a new home in Woodbury. Kim’s commitment to detail, quality and level of service, and accountability during the process were a huge benefit to realizing our new purchase. ‘Kim knows how to get the job done and she does it well.'”
Dale and Debbie Anderson, Woodbury
“Kim Ziton worked with us in building our home in Woodbury. In getting to know Kim we learned of her professionalism, knowledge of the market and her commitment to us as buyers. She was able to help us finish our home within budget and invest in “bells & whistles” which were good for resale. We were pleased with the great job she did and would gladly recommend her to others. ”
