I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kim Crahan to buy my first home. Kim took the time to understand what I was looking for not only inside the home, but the surrounding community as well. Because I was out of state and unable to come to Atlanta for tours, Kim was incredibly thorough in her video walk-throughs (pointing out the good and the bad) which allowed me to feel confident moving to offers on places I hadn't been to in person. Additionally, she was such a bright light, filled with endless optimism, humor, and kindness, and that took much of the weight and stress of home-buying off of my shoulders. Kim really went above and beyond in finding the perfect home and community for me and I encourage anyone who is looking for a real estate agent to ask for Kim Crahan!

"Kim is simply the best. I was referred to her by a friend, and truly I could not have asked for a better agent. She was patient with me, took the time to get to know me, my personality, my wants and needs when it comes to buying a home, and more. We spent months looking, yet Kim remained steadfast and hopeful as we continued the search. She didn’t give up, and she didn’t get frustrated. She also didn’t try and convince me to buy a home that I didn’t truly love, for some sort of selfish reason or because she had a need to sell one. She simply trusted the process and kept at it with me as we searched for the perfect home. Quite far into the process, I actually put an offer on a house, but during inspections, several issues arose. Kim advised me to not follow through with the purchase. I listened to her, and I’m so glad I did. The house had too many problems, so I definitely dodged a bullet. Soon after that, another house came on the market that I loved, and Kim helped me negotiate an incredible price on an incredible home. I’m now a proud homeowner of a place that I’m deeply grateful for, and it all happened with the help of Kim. So Kim, thank you again. You’re the best. -Kassidy C.

"It is a pleasure to write this letter recommending my realtor Kim Crahan. Earlier this year my husband and I were nearing retirement and empty nesting. We decided it was time to sell our family home in Sandy Springs, downsize to a townhome and spend more time at our home on Lake Oconee. Having spent 22 years in our 7000 square foot home raising 4 children and 3 dogs meant we needed an experienced, knowledgeable and personable realtor and Kim was perfect for the task. I first met Kim in April 2022 after she was recommended by a friend whose home she had recently sold. When she came to my home for a consultation I was immediately impressed by her knowledge of the current real estate market and trends. Kim has a proactive train of thought and the desire to get things done. She made specific recommendations to enhance our home sale and we worked together as a team to make a plan. Throughout the process of buying a townhome and preparing our home for sale she was always available, professional, reliable and a pleasure to work with. Her marketing plan was extensive with professional staging, presale realtor open houses and beautiful still and video photography. And Kim’s expertise translated into great results. We bought and moved into a townhome that is perfect for our new lifestyle. We put our house on the market, on time and on budget. We were under contract in a week and closed on our sale in a month. I hold Kim Crahan in the highest regard as a real estate professional and thus can recommend her without hesitation." -Laura C.

"My wife and I were looking for an investment property but did not know the Atlanta area at all. When we asked a friend for a realtor recommendation they passed along Kim's contact information. Right from the beginning, Kim took the time to listen to us and find out what our needs were. She helped us understand the area, suggested different opportunities for us, and explained the benefits and downsides of each property we were interested in. As we are not local to the area, Kim spent the time to view a number of different properties for us and send us photos and videos, pointing out things that she liked and things she didn't about the different properties. Kim ended up finding us two properties for a great deal, and even showed the property to a potential tenant for us. Everything Kim did was professional and above and beyond what we expected from an agent. We were thrilled to work with Kim, and hope to work with her again in the future." -Benjamin C.

“An absolutely fantastic experience! In selling my home, Ms. Crahan provided instant comps for my area. She set me up to receive notifications about the exact type of new home I was seeking. Kim provided very skillful contractor references for necessary improvements, made great decisions about upgrades and followed through to the point of locating and procuring needed fixtures, replacement features and staging my home. Her knowledge of the area, her dedication the needs of this client and her professional acumen made the process of selling my home and identifying the exact new home I was seeking a seamless process. Her skills are incredible and because of the work she did to assist me, my home had a contract the first day at a price higher than it was listed. Kim Crahan is to be applauded for her thoroughness and commitment to this client. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for her superb performance. Kim Crahan is exquisitely talented and is definitely a Five Star agent.”

Kim was great. My wife and I were relocating for work and Kim could not have been more help. She knew about all areas of the city and was able to help us find the perfect place. Always responsive and able to accommodate our requests she showed us many homes in a very short time due to the relocation process. She also went out of her way to help us with inspections and other items while we were in our previous home trying to move. It was great working with Kim and we have and will continue to recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. We will definitely be reaching out to Kim again when we are looking to move. Thanks for everything!

Kim sold our house this year when we moved out of state. Anyone can list a house and show it, but if you want to sell your house and get it done right, you need a professional like Kim. She found a buyer, negotiated a fair price...and then the work began. Kim was able to guide both parties through the inspections and negotiate an agreement that kept both parties at the table. She gave us a realistic idea of how much work we needed to do to get the house ready to sell, then arranged all the contractors to get the work done. It worked and the house was under contract 4 days after we listed it. Need a plumber to fix a leak right now? Kim's got a guy. Need a some drywall repaired or a painter? Kim knows a guy that will give you a quote today. Buyers are thinking about putting on an addition? Kim knew the zoning laws and what would need a variance from the City. That crack above the fireplace? Kim knew whether or not it was no big deal or a deal breaker. Go ahead and try to sell your house by yourself, it'll cost you.

Kim was phenomenal during the entire home buying and home selling process. Kim provided excellent guidance of the housing market and remained patient with us throughout the process allowing us ultimately to find the perfect home. With Kim's guidance, our home was under contract in less than 10 days!! We would recommend Kim without hesitation.

We had the best experience with Kim representing us as our agent in selling our home. She sold our home for 98%of our asking price AND we closed in less than one month. She brought us a wealth of information about our property, the neighborhood and the market in general at our first meeting. We felt we were well prepared especially with her marketing plan. I have never had anyone work as hard for me as Kim did. She is a consummate professional. I highly recommend her.

If I had to buy a home again tomorrow, I would call Kim Crahan lightning fast! My family had to movie quickly, so I gave Kim my husband's office location and told her I needed a home close and zoned for the best schools possible. Before even visiting, she was linking me with multiple homes that fit our criteria. We find our new home on our first house hunting day! She's a great negotiator and we wanted to close quickly: she made it happen. (I should mention in the past, realtors have pushed me and my husband to homes above our price range I'm sure to pad their commissions. When you give Kim your price range, she takes it as the gospel truth.) This is the fourth home we've purchased, and we had the quickest, easiest, and most enjoyable experience buying our home with Kim. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!

From my first meeting with Kim I found her to be completely professional and honest, but with a genuinely caring and friendly attitude. Without even seeing my condo she had done a preliminary report on the comps in my complex and condos nearby. Once she saw the condo - already decorated beautifully - she gave me easy tips on making it show ready. We were so ready when the listing went public, she had a contract for me at my asking price within two days. She kept me informed throughout every step in the process and her beautiful smile encouraged me through the difficulties of leaving my home to a new owner. Start to finish, soup to nuts, I would recommend Kim many times over and will call her for my future real estate needs in metro Atlanta.

Kim is one buttoned-up professional. Kim sold one house for me and then worked with me to buy the next one. Her initial marketing presentation was impressive; data-driven, strategic, convincing. Kim is energetic and energizing - no bad days when Kim's leading the charge. She's creative, and inventive; her "you always have other options" attitude means there's no settling. Kim has good judgment and is a pleasure to be around.
