"Kim Cooper is hands down the best realtor on the Long Beach Peninsula. Her complete knowledge of the area, expertise, honesty, attentiveness, professionalism and attention to detail are unmatched. If you are buying or selling a home or land, do not make the mistake of choosing another realtor or broker. My wife and I had top notch service from the time we met Kim, until she sold our home. We cannot praise her hard work enough. She expeditiously answers every email and text, made the sale as smooth as silk and hand-carried us though the entire process with ease. We'd rate her a 10 out of 10 and a grade A+++++."
"I was very pleased with Kim's professional help during the entire search and negotiation process right through and after closing of my real estate purchase. She was very responsive and executed flawlessly under a tight timeline."
"We feel really fortunate to have worked with Kim on finding our dream starter home! Not only was she attentive and available for any anxiety prone questions we might have had, she also provided a voice of reason when we needed a little perspective. Kim was both a patient and active listener - able to sit back and gauge our reactions, provide feedback or support if asked and never came off as pushy. She was very adept at navigating the complexities of the contracts and did a great job of clearly explaining the process to us so that we always felt like we knew what was going on. Kim made this overall scary and exciting experience all the more pleasant with her positive attitude, good humor and overall support. I can't imagine buying another house without her involvement and I would highly
recommend her as your agent!"
"I have worked closely with Kim on 2 large investment transactions over the last 3 years. She wins business because she is down-to-earth, honest and hardworking. In our experiences, her strength has been getting us into contract. Kim is great to work with because she is direct, organized, and communicative. She's helped me cross many hurdles in escrow and post-closing she continues to provide me with outstanding references for property-related services. She is a real life-saver and I am in deep gratitude to her for my successes in real estate."
"Kim Cooper was exactly what we wanted in a realtor when it was time to sell in San Francisco. She was honest, easy going and charming from the start. Extremely knowledgeable, a great listener and communicator, and totally committed to her clients. She showed up for our first meeting well prepared with a folder full of neighborhood-specific comparables and a strategy for pricing and marketing that rang true. Kim understood our time and availability was limited, and to our tremendous relief she stepped in to manage multiple aspects of the house prep. She quickly found competitively priced contractors (floor refinisher, painter, plumber, handyman and a stager) to take care of things. She oversaw their work and kept in constant touch with us for decision-making throughout the entire process. She also made time in her schedule to deal with required inspections. When the house went on the market (with a gorgeous custom website) Kim was always there to meet the other agents and prospective buyers, and to answer their questions. Within two weeks of listing we received 8 solid offers, and sold for 21% over asking. There was an unexpected delay in closing but Kim worked with us and the buyer's agent to keep the sale on-track and drama free. Everything was quickly resolved and the house sold. Kim is relaxed and low-key, but showed her tremendous commitment by working non-stop for us till the job was done. We were blown away with the results! We highly recommend Kim Cooper."
"Virginia Kim Cooper is the best. We had a SF real estate quagmire with slimy brokers, crooked deals, deals where the ugly catch wasn't revealed until we were about to pay the deposit, waste of time open houses, THEN one day I met this cheerful pleasant realtor, Kim Cooper. She waded through the crud, did the leg work to steer us clear of wasted time and bad deals without us having to even see the places, she had the utmost of patience, wasn't just trying to get it done and get her commission. Wanted us to find the right place and pushed us to be sure it was the right situation. In short, she's professional and she has very high integrity. I've dealt with a lot of brokers and she is special."
"Kim helped me find and buy my house in Marin and was an absolute joy to work with. I was a first-time buyer and she made the whole process transparent and hopeful. Kim was always available when I needed help, and also gave me great tips for when I wanted to explore solo. And in those moments when I felt a little anxious, Kim's calm professional experience helped me evaluate things with clear eyes. Her troubleshooting skills and contact list saved the day several times and got me into an amazing, amazing house. Thank you! I wouldn't have wanted to work with
"We have had Kim's help from the start to the finish line....and we couldn't have been happier with the end result (a home and neighborhood we love). Kim's approach is very casual and down-to-earth but at the same time she is incredibly responsive and efficient. She kept us informed and up-to-date and was honest with us regarding the market conditions (e.g., providing gentle reality checks) while also being on our side 100%. Kim took the time to answer our multitude of questions and to guide us through the many details of the home-buying process. She really helped keep us on track. During our home search, Kim learned our wants and needs so well that she was able to provide insights and ideas that we had not considered but that were ultimately important to us. Overall, Kim is personable, patient (we looked for almost a year), dependable, informed, and tech-savvy. We highly recommend her."
"What makes Kim such an excellent realtor is that her work in real estate brings together all of her areas of lifelong study: Passion for and engagement with the environment, be it urban or rural; plants and botany; interpersonal communication and insight; and an abiding commitment to helping people find their way home. She is the person you want on your team when you enter the real estate quest."
"We couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent than Kim. We met her more than a year ago at an open house she was hosting and were instantly attracted to her mellow surfer vibe. There was no pressure to buy, no hidden agenda, from Kim. We just conversed like we were friends talking about different neighborhoods. We were very much in the beginning of our home search process and there was much to learn, not only about the market but about ourselves and what we wanted. Needless to say, there were a lot of growing pains throughout the process and Kim was great in supporting and listening to us. We went to countless showings, each time learning a little bit more of what we wanted. Kim cares more about making sure you feel great about your home purchase than closing a transaction. Thanks to her, we recently became first-time home buyers and couldn't be happier. We would
recommend Kim in a heartbeat".

Kim Cooper is the epitome of professionalism in the real estate world. She is guiding me through a home purchase in Ilwaco, WA, and it has been a satisfying journey. The process is complex, but Kim gets to the details in record time, and her follow-up is unflagging. My confidence in Kim's ability to take me step-by-step through the home buying process only increases by the day.
