Kim made the house buying and selling experience very easy. Compared to other Realtors that I have worked with, Kim consistently went above and beyond. My favourite part about working with Kim was her honesty.
After the great experience I had with Kim helping me purchase my home, choosing her to sell the home was easy!

I have purchased two homes with Kim so far and will not hesitate to work with her again when I buy a third home!
When I first started working with Kim, I was not experienced with real estate and did not have a big budget. Kim really knows her stuff and she took the time to answer all our questions. She worked like crazy to get us the first look at listings in a hot market. Kim found us a great house within our budget.
The second time we bought a home, we became landlords at the same time! Kim also has experience with rental properties and she shared her expertise with us.
Throughout our time with Kim, she has always been extremely helpful and easy to work with. If she was unsure of anything, she would take the time to find the correct information instead of making something up or brushing off the issue.

I worked with Kim for a long-distance purchase. Being in a different city throughout the process, I did not have many opportunities to meet with Kim face to face but she remained in constant communication with us throughout the process.
Kim has an easy going personality. She does not make you feel pressured.
Throughout the purchase process, Kim was quick to respond to us, hardworking, and knowledgeable about the Calgary housing market.

When I first started working with Kim I was worried that she would side with my wife and her wants over the practicality of the property and my own wants. But she listened to what we actually needed in a house and helped us overlook some aesthetic issues. We ended up purchasing a house to our liking and making a smart investment.
Kim made us feel comfortable and made sure we had fun throughout the process. She allowed us to make our own decisions but provided insightful ideas and suggestions along the way. Kim was always willing to go above and beyond to help us. She answered our questions and concerns. She was really there for us.
Our experience with Kim was a 5/5!
- P.D., Calgary
Before I started working with Kim, my biggest concern about the house hunting process was being able to trust a real estate agent. I found Kim to be honest, straightforward, and knowledgeable. She answered all of our questions and took the time to go through the paperwork with us and explain everything.
Working with Kim is fun and she really looks out for her client’s interests.

From our initial meeting in September 2006 until the possession of our home in August 2008, Kim Twohey worked patiently and persistently with us to find a home that met the majority of our family’s needs. Her knowledge of the housing market and experience in Calgary and the surrounding area helped us find the house we will live in for the next several decades. She developed a rapport with our children and, with much attention to detail, found what was important to them in a house as well. Kim’s professionalism toward us was of the highest quality and she came to us prepared in each circumstance. She was organized and researched potential areas that we were considering to help us narrow our search. Once we found our dream home, her significant strength in negotiating both our sale and purchase allowed us to benefit greatly as the housing market was in decline.
It has been a pleasure to work with you as my elderly parents moved from our family home into an amazing condo. Your results are even more impressive considering that I live in Ontario and served as the primary contact for these transactions. I engaged you more than a year ago, long before Mom and Dad were ready to sell. You took a patient, long term view from our first meeting. Your experience with seniors was very evident when we all met to explore options. When they were finally ready to ale the move, you helped us find a wonderful new condo with a mountain view. Getting the house listed was a breeze. We agreed on a few minor improvements that helped get us the price we wanted. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Let me know if I can ever be of any assistance.
My husband and I sold our house this past year with the assistance of Kim Twohey. Originally, we did not list our home with Kim but were referred to her after our initial realtor moved, and could no longer work for us. After being referred to Kim we immediately noticed the difference she made. She was in constant contact with us throughout selling our home. We both felt that we could trust Kim because she was honest with us and was available all hours of the day to discuss concerning issues. She was constantly completing new and updated home evaluations for us when we requested and never made us feel that we were too demanding of her time.
When we listed our house the real estate market in our area was depressed and we felt that it would be difficult to sell it for a reasonable price. Our previous realtor showed our home 1-2 times per week but when Kim took over our home she arranged at least 3-6 showings per week. She not only increased exposure to potential buyers but she arranged a home evaluation for other real estate agents to critique our home and give us input on how a potential buyer may view our home.
In total our home was listed for six months. The last two months of it being listed were under Kim’s direction. She redid our listing, took all new pictures of our home, gave us input on our home viewings and shared with us ways to improve our home for further showings. At the end of the second month we ended our home sale with a positive outcome. We had numerous offers and sold our home for more than the list price!
My husband and I would definitely recommend Kim as a realtor and would never hesitate to work with her again. We feel that she was very helpful, knowledgeable and that she could be approached without hesitation. Kim is an exceptional realtor and we believe that working with her was a pleasure as she assisted us through our journey.
Kim Twohey is an Excellent Realtor when it comes to buying or selling Condominiums.
After all she is a Certified Condominium Specialist, and she is very knowledgeable about this.
We have sold one Condo with Kim and bought another through her.
We recommended her to our family when they wanted to sell their condo and if we decide to sell or buy again we will call on Kim's services again.
So if you are thinking about purchasing a condo or selling one, you will have a pleasant experience working with Kim!
My husband and I originally listed our house for sale by owner in July of 2006. We were approached by many, many realtors, most making false promises and telling out right lies to get us to list with them.
Kim Twohey also contacted us but it was clear she was up front and honest. She was our kind of person and we knew we could work with her.
Kim’s approach with us was very accommodating when it came to our need for real property advice, reassurance that we had a good product as well as lending an extra hand by way of physical labour when needed.
We are pleased to have worked with Kim and continue to work with her in our search for a revenue property.
If you have any further questions or for a reference, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Kim patiently worked with us to find our first home. She was always easy to reach, very flexible, and she really fought for us to get what we needed.
While looking at properties, she always made sure to ask us how we felt about them and she would point out certain things that our inexperienced eyes overlooked before we left each house. We always felt well informed.
When we finally picked a house that suited our needs, (It took us quite a while!) Kim made sure that we understood what was happening, that we knew what was coming next, and she helped us navigate the system as smoothly as possible. As first time home buyers, her earnest attitude and genuine heart made us feel more secure, beyond the awareness that we are backed by her bank of knowledge and experience.
Her diligence and hard work easily won us over, and her positive energy was just a good fit for us. When we felt ready to buy our next home, we did not hesitate to contact her again.
Working with Kim was a huge advantage in every way. Her advice and recommendations were completely appropriate and useful in every situation. She provided everything I could have needed and wanted and a lot that I didn’t even know I would need/want. She advocated for me and had my best interest in mind with every transaction. A process that began as overwhelming and intimidating became fun, enjoyable and exciting. I can’t recommend Kim highly enough.
My husband and I used the services of Kim Twohey to purchase and sell two of our condominium units in Calgary. We found her to be extremely helpful. She quickly impressed us with her work ethic and resourcefulness. She was fast and efficient in the marketing and selling of our homes. Kim was great in dealing with the buyers and sellers and was always looking out for our best interest. We give Kim our highest recommendation.
Please feel free to contact me by email if you have any further questions.

We were looking for an affordable home in Calgary and went to look at an open house we thought would be within our budget. We happened to cross the street to another open house. The house had been recently painted, all white. . . with oil paint. . . even the ceilings. The house still smelled like fresh paint! It was awful. Lucky for us, Kim was the Realtor showing the house. She knew we didn’t like the house but she talked to us about our options and offered to find some homes to show us. But the funny thing was, we weren’t looking for a Realtor and we weren’t really seriously looking for a house to buy. Regardless, we felt comfortable with Kim because of her down-to-earth attitude.
Our biggest worries when we were buying were the rising house costs and the competition with multiple offers. The market had gone crazy! Kim showed us a few houses and we ended up putting an offer in on two of them. We were unsuccessful because the price went much higher than we offered.
We put a quick offer in on a home in Coventry Hills and the offer was accepted. After applying some paint to the inside and cleaning it up a bit, we decided to sell it on our own. Kim went on the hunt for us again. She found us a sweet little house in the same neighbourhood. Then, one day I was driving around, checking out brand new Show Homes and I found a beautiful Jayman home that seemed affordable. It was much larger than our current home. We went back to Kim again and asked her to find us a larger used house in the Hidden Valley area.
Kim very patiently showed us a number of houses in the area. After visiting at least 8 houses, Kim called and suggested we look at a new listing. She met me there right away and I fell in love with the house! I said, “Put an offer in right now!” It was more expensive than we anticipated but the bank was able to work the numbers so we could afford it. Kim negotiated hard on our behalf and “won” the house for us with her shrewd negotiation skills.
Even though we decided to sell our houses on our own, Kim was supportive and even offered to provide her expertise if we needed advice. This support, even though she wasn’t making any money from us, was why we continued to work with her. Kim made us feel she was truly working for us, not for her own gain.
Kim is funny and straightforward. We never felt we were being given the “sales pitch.” We always knew Kim was working to find us the house that suited us best. Along the way, she has always been upfront and honestly told us when we were expecting too much from a house and not to expect to get everything on our wish list. Of course, the almost perfect house was out there. . . and Kim found it for us.
I have recommended Kim to friends and what I say is that she will work her tail off to find you a home. She isn’t one who will “sign you up” as a client and then leave you to do your own searching. She is pragmatic. She is the most attentive (and honest) realtor I’ve ever worked with.
We appreciate that Kim has included us in her “fold” of friends and I feel that Kim has become more than just my Realtor. She is a very generous person and I think that’s what makes her successful.
Since moving to Calgary Natalie and I have worked with Kim for several home purchases spanning a period of several years. We’ve always appreciated Kim’s patience, honesty and resourcefulness and her direct, up-front yet relaxed and accommodating style fits us perfectly. Kim has always been very professional and helpful in all our real estate dealings and has consistently delivered excellent service.
In our most recent home purchase, Kim was instrumental in closing a successful deal in the midst of a difficult multi-bidder situation. Kim’s approach and personality helped us get the house we really wanted despite the fact our offer was out-bid by others. Kim’s approach to home purchases goes beyond cold numbers and her charm, enthusiasm and professionalism won the day for us. I believe that no other realtor would have been able to navigate this situation and still get us that house except Kim.
Kim has demonstrated customer service above and beyond the standard for many other realtors we have worked with and I would recommend her to anyone looking to find a home in Calgary. If you have any further questions or for a reference, please do not hesitate to contact us.
