When working with buyers and sellers, my goal is to exceed their expectations. I work hard to make sure each of my clients have a positive & stress-free experience, while profiting as much as possible! Buying a home is one of, if not the largest financial and emotional investment someone can make. I work hard to find what each of my clients is looking for in a home in the time frame they desire, while walking them through each step. When listing a home, I work hard to market each property and ultimately, get it sold for the most amount of money, in the shortest period of time, with the least amount of inconvenience for my clients. I have been in real estate since 2003 and over 80% of my clients have been referrals! I am a Seniors Real Estate Specialist & a Seller Representative Specialist.
Being from Pittsburgh, I know the areas and price ranges inside and out! One of the things I love about my hometown is that it has such a great variety of neighborhoods and a price ranges for everyone! I have a lot of fun helping my clients move in or move on, but I also know it's a huge responsibility to be entrusted with your biggest investment, and I take it seriously! Whether you are a 1st time homebuyer, move up buyer or looking to sell your home for a desired profit or in a certain time frame, feel free to give me a call. I welcome the opportunity to be of assistance and will make sure you have a positive experience, while delivering results!
There are many realtors out there, so read why my clients have chosen ME:
Kathy Hansell (1st time home buyer)
"After meeting with a few real estate agents in the search for my new home, Kim Henderson quickly jumped to the top of our list and delivered in a big way. It became apparent very quickly that Kim was a good listener with a strong drive to do whatever needed to be done for her clients. She is knowledgeable in her field & has many great contacts in the industry to help with every step of the process.
Kim's outgoing personality was the first thing we noticed when meeting with her. Working with her came very naturally & her attention to detail helped me fine tune our search very quickly. Every minute that our schedules allowed, Kim had another house for us to visit. I had a very complicated schedule and Kim was always available whenever we were. When I found our home, Kim could tell how quickly I fell in love, but insisted I continue with my search that evening, just so there were no regrets or second guesses. Kim made the entire process very easy and painless & recommended top notch loan specialists and home inspectors. I got the home I’ve always wanted for less than I anticipated and the closing was well prepared and went off without a hitch.
I whole heartedly endorse & recommend Kim Henderson to anyone with real estate needs. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, helping us to find the perfect home for our family!"
Scott & Laura Dzadovsky: (Move Up Buyer: Sold Current Home and Bought a New Home)
“Kim made one of the most stressful life events easier to manage. She was referred to us through social media via an old friend. I only point this out because we searched near and far for a recommendation with no luck. We are grateful for her expertise and compassion. She represented us on both the buy and sell sides of home ownership.
We were looking in a very select market where houses often went under contract very quickly. Kim was extremely flexible to ensure we could get into properties as soon as they hit the market. Her patience was unprecedented as we embarked on the largest financial purchase of our lives. We actually went back several times to view the property we ended purchasing. Kim was really committed to us making the right decision.
The purchase of our current home was a bit complicated. I am glad we had Kim to guide us through. It was a bank owned property and required additional paperwork. Kim was pro-active in seeking additional expertise within her firm to ensure we had every item covered off on the purchase agreement. Kim helped us navigate a smooth and success closing. I appreciated Kim's honest opinion throughout this process. I don't always think that this is the norm. People are more apt to look the other way just to avoid someone's displeasure; however she did not do this. We asked her for ideas to sell our current home faster and for a larger profit. She was spot on with changing some carpet and also told us not to worry about a few minor updates that we were considering. She was diligent about following up with other agents for feedback on that sale and secured a contract on our old home in just a few weeks. That was a huge relief as we looked to close on our new home. We sincerely appreciate Kim's attention to detail as well as her passion to serve her clients.”
Rachel & Mike Murray (Sold their current home and built a brand new home):
"My wife and I are very happy with the support that Kim has given us during our real estate experience. About a year and 3 months ago, we started working with Kim to find our long-term home. Kim set us up with everything we needed to know when houses that would fit our needs came up, and was happy to take us to see everything practically at the drop of a hat. Evenings, weekends, crappy winter weather, didn't matter. Kim got us there.
In the end, we gave up on finding an existing house and decided to build. Kim helped get us hooked up with the builders and started down that path to getting the right place for us.
A couple of weeks ago, the time came to deal with selling our current house. Kim did everything to get our place in the market and guided us in getting it looking sharp to sell. Within 36 hours of it being put on the market, we were sorting through details of two offers, both over the asking price that we put it up for.
Long story short, we couldn't be happier. I honestly get the impression that Kim strives to serve her clients. I'm sure not every situation is as amazing as ours has been, but I'm willing to bet that Kim will do everything in her power to make your experience that way."
David Waterman & Kristy Marshall (Relocation Buyers):
“We recently relocated from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania. The realtor that we worked with to purchase a home in the Pittsburgh area was Kim Henderson with Coldwell Banker. We gave Kim a unique and complicated set of requirements for the property we hoped to find. For example, we wanted to live in a rural setting yet still be close to work and shopping. Our dream house would require a large open backyard, yet still have lots of trees. We would also need a fireplace, a finished basement, two bathrooms, a deck, and a four-season sun room. Most importantly, since we lived in Massachusetts, we would only be able to spend a limited time house-hunting in Pittsburgh. Kim worked very hard researching properties that matched our requirements. She kept us up-to-date with possible property matches through email, text messaging, and phone calls.
Above and beyond finding us the perfect property, Kim helped familiarize us with the Pittsburgh area; introduced us to the local culture; provided contact information for utilities (electric, gas, water, etc.); and connected us with local contractors.
Kim has an excellent sense of humor. Her upbeat attitude and abundant energy made the arduous task of finding a new home enjoyable.”
Brian & Marina Kraus (1st time home buyers)
"My husband and I loved the city but wanted privacy so you could imagine how difficult we made it on Kim to find us a home near the city but far enough to have space. We were serious about home buying and quite frankly scared since it was our first purchase. From the beginning Kim took us under her wing and guided us through all the steps it took to buy a home. We were always informed ASAP and could count on her for daily notifications on potential homes! The best part about working with Kim is knowing you have someone great on your side. Someone who always has your best interest at heart and cares for your needs. Yes-We were needy! But if you want an agent who takes all your needs into account, choose Kim. Love her!"
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
