What My Clients are Saying

We chose Kim because two of our friends bought houses with her and both of them recommended her, now we can say the same. Kim worked with us for 8 months to help us find a house that was perfect for us. We also really enjoyed working with her assistant Sally Taft, the two of them worked together  well and were a lot of fun to spend time with as we toured houses. They were both great at remembering things we’d talked about in previous homes and refining their suggestions for houses to look at. Kim’s negotiation skills and ability to seize opportunities were critical for getting us into our home, and we’d recommend her again in a heartbeat. Barr Family

Kim O Dales went out of her way to accommodate our wishes. She was a true partner during the process of the sale and I trusted her judgment. Kim knows every house in Laurelhurst and this helped enormously in the sale of my house.B Knudson

When we found the place we ended up buying, Kim met us on a cold Sunday evening (with almost no notice) to go through the place with us and she was on call to answer questions and help us out during the bidding process the next day. It was wonderful to know that someone was on our side and available to make sure we were taken care of. C. Blair

FANTASTIC! After working with Kim and Sally, we could never think of using another agent. Ever.  Yes! Just about everything they did exceeded our expectations. Both of them took a deep interest in who we were and what we wanted in a house. By the time we finally got into a home, I’m convinced they knew what we wanted better than we did. Between the two of them, they spent so many late nights finishing offer paperwork, sacrificed so many days taking us on tours of five houses at a time, accommodated our every whim and need…they were fantastic. Honestly, by the end of our house-buying process they had become true friends. I certainly didn’t expect that! D. Otero

Excellent! She went the extra mile at every step of the process and we were very pleased with her thoroughness and professionalism. D. & B. Kirby

Kim Dales did a marvelous job on keeping me informed about any listings that came out as per my criteria. She found me the perfect house. E. Savage

Kim O Dales was beyond competent and helpful. She was every kind of wonderful!  L. Rigg

Kim’s service exceeded our expectations in every way.  Kim stepped in several times to solve unexpected problems quickly and creatively. She was always available to help us. On our closing day, when a wire transfer seemed to be held up, she fixed the problem immediately, saving us from having to delay the closing for our new house.  M. Culter

Above and beyond our expectations! Kim was resourceful, helpful and did everything she could do to help us sell our house. She got multiple bids from contractors for the work she recommended before selling our house, she negotiated the estimates, oversaw contractors work, met with repairman and utility services. Since we moved out-of-state before our house sold, we depended on Kim to keep an eye on our house. She took on the responsibility as if our house was hers and kept us posted on everything. We knew we could depend on Kim and her excellent judgment. Kim also exceeded in her marketing plan for our house. Kim’s marketing approach was right on the mark and her staging, photos, open houses and follow-up with buyers/agents was done with a lot of attention to detail and professionalism that was appreciated.  The Kalverts

Kim was always there when we needed her. She and Sally answered all of our questions, helped us prepare for the event, and guided us through the process. They were both extremely pleasant to work with, and now we would consider them both friends. She exceeded our expectations on numerous occasions. The three most prominent instances were 1) leaving no stone unturned in an attempt to keep the first deal together, 2) really taking control of almost every aspect of our home maintenance after we had moved across the country, and 3) representing both us and the buyer in the final deal that eventually closed the house. In all cases, Kim was extremely professional, she felt and heard our concerns, and she represented us extremely well. She was always there when we needed her. Finally, she recommended PLIA to us, which in the end may prove to have helped us financially after discovering a leaking oil tank. T. Lienau

Outstanding! Always available, always accessible. Saved the negotiation from what would have surely been a disaster, based on poor follow through by my first agent.  V. Mosca 

Kim is very responsive, and task oriented.  She whisked our house off the market through innovative marketing and old fashioned hard work.  When we were buying a house, she was a great negotiator on our side.  She is pleasant and highly effective and motivated, a great combination.   W Harper 

We were lucky enough to have Kim as our realtor during our home-buying process.  Her professionalism, attention to detail, common sense, and positive attitude were invaluable to us, especially as we were buying our first home and often felt overwhelmed at the prospect.  She always listened and offered immensely helpful and gentle guidance throughout the process.  When the offer we had placed on our dream home was accepted, she was as excited as we were and came over personally to share the good news.  She will always be our realtor, and I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for someone who really listens to clients and knows the real estate business inside and out.  Our home buying process was a really positive experience, and we owe that all to Kim!  R Metcalf

Kim Dales is the go-to Real Estate agent in Seattle. She actually puts the needs of her clients first and her own self interest a distant second. This makes her exceptional and wonderful to deal with. I expect it has something to do with her previous career as a nurse, caring for others. She is a gem!   M  Burns

Kim has represented our interests in the purchase of a residence in Windermere and a residence in Laurelhurst.  She is an outstanding realtor whose expertise, follow-up, and attention to detail, along with her honesty and fairness, are impeccable!  No wonder we are among her many loyal clientele!  We would recommend her services to any home buyer or seller!   K & L Wold


I don’t know where Kim gets her energy!  I do know she is a dedicated professional who genuinely loves her work.  Her wisdom and wit have guided us through both ends of the real estate spectrum…the sale of a home and the search for a new one.  Each time, I was confident that we had chosen the right realtor – the intelligent one with the savvy negotiating skills and the logical business sense.  And, she actually picks up the phone when you call her!!  She surrounds herself with a team of friendly coworkers and stays on top of the newest technology in marketing properties.  She has a terrific relationship with other real estate professionals, and a superb knowledge of Seattle neighborhoods. Kim has a true passion for the Pacific Northwest.  She’ll get you “home”. M Goodell

Kim O. Dales is a wonderful asset to finding the perfect home. My husband and I found our first home with Kim and after two years, we are still completely happy with what we have. Kim went out of her way to connect with our schedule, to explain all the new information, and to treat us with
respect in all business transactions.  Most importantly she made us feel like more than just clients. We now consider Kim a lifelong friend as well as our go to realtor if we ever need to look again. A Vrbas


We had the pleasure of working with Kim Dales on the sale of our Laurelhurst house. Kim began the relationship with us by providing valuable advice preparing our property for sale. It was clear she thoroughly understood the market and the potential buyer’s desires.

Our home sale was atypical for many reasons, including our relocation to the East Coast halfway through the process, the identification of a heating oil tank leak on the property, and the subsequent loss of a contracted buyer.  All of these distinguishing events were, needless to say, extremely stressful for us.  Kim’s commitment was unquestioned throughout the ordeal.  She stuck with us through thick and thin, she understood our concerns and treated them as if they were her own, she provided excellent advice, and was instrumental in the ultimate successful sale of the property. To say that Kim went above and beyond the call of duty is truly an understatement.  She made us feel comfortable throughout the process, she calmed our nerves, and she made herself available to us 24/7.  Most of all, she treated this transaction as if it were her own property for sale, and her own financial future at stake. We would work with Kim again without hesitation. T & K Lienau


Dear Sally and Kim,

Thank you so much for helping us down this monumental path with grace.   We have felt comforted and in the loop all of the way.   We greatly appreciate all of the extra effort that this sale entailed with us being out of town.   You dealt with our tenants with great professionalism and care while respecting their schedules and wishes all while accomplishing repairs, clean ups and showings.   We greatly appreciate the many extra visits that you made to the house to supervise handy work.

This sale would not have been possible without your expert care.  You assured us, you assured the buyers, and you sold our home in record time at a price we were happy with.  We are so incredibly thankful!  Heather
