Finding your dream home is my ultimate goal! My PASSION for Real Estate is combined with years of experience in Buying, Selling and Renovating. I offer a great eye and vision for how to best get you your Dream Home or get top $$$ for your Listing. Whether it be home improvement, interior design, landscape design or anything that could help to Buy low/Sell high, I bring to the table.
Something that I can do for YOU that is a little different than other agents is offer you my access to tradespeople, lawyers and financial Brokers. I have a whole team of electricians, floor specialists, painters and stagers. This team is helpful in getting top $$$ for a listing, but as well for a Buyer that finds a home with great bones but at a discount. I have done reno's for clients in just a few weeks so when they move in it is perfect. My expertise and a full team of contractors, electricians, painters, etc will get the job done!
Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions in one's life and I am sensitive to that. Taking one's time, looking at houses and neigbourhoods is the fun part and shouldn't be rushed until YOU are ready. I am thrilled to be a part of your journey and I look forward to helping you find that perfect home.
I know Toronto and the GTA very well having been a real estate investor for 30+ years and having lived in and renovated 21 homes, from Richmond Hill and Aurora to Guildwood and from Rexdale to Markham, Pickering and Ajax to name a few. Outside of Toronto too, I have sold houses as far west as Burlington, Georgetown and Guelph and east to Coburg and north to Orillia, having such fun helping my clients and friends find (and create) that perfect dream home.
Thank you for visiting and if you decide to sell or purchase a property please don't hesitate to contact me. I hope to meet you soon!

I had the pleasure of working with Kim to buy my house in Toronto. I have worked with many real estate agents in past, both in Toronto and overseas but Kim is very different from the norm. She is very professional, honest, hardworking, and dedicated to her clients. She has an amazing sense of understanding the client’s requirements and her recommendations for all the trades including painting, flooring, lighting, etc. are invaluable. You throw a problem at her and she has a solution ready for you.
In my case, Kim worked on defining the strategy, which made sure that I get the house in a bidding situation. Her “make it happen” attitude helped me get the best deal at the best location. She not only helped me in buying the house but also took care of all the renovations. She took a personal interest in making sure that all work is done on time and on budget.
I am so happy with the service that I have already recommended Kim to my friends and colleagues. She is now a dear friend and I will definitely work with her for my future property purchases.

We had the pleasure of working with Kim thanks to a family referral and couldn’t have been more grateful for meeting her at the perfect time! From the first meeting with her, we felt like we had known her forever. She’s incredibly kind, personable, and always willing to share insight. She strikes a balance between moving quickly while making sure you feel comfortable through every step of the process.
We found our dream home after only a few days of searching, which sped up our timeline for making an offer and listing our current house. Kim went above and beyond to help find contractors for quick home repairs, helped with restaging our home, and sold our house over asking within 24 hours of it being on the market. If it wasn’t for her focus and dedication, we wouldn’t have been able to move so quickly and find our dream home.
Kim is dedicated to her clients, has strong knowledge of real estate, and was always available to answer questions, even after we had moved into our new home. We loved working with Kim and happily recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling.

I would gladly recommend Kim to any prospective homebuyers. This was our first venture into real estate and Kim made us feel at ease from the moment we met her. Her clear knowledge, experience, and passion for her work were comforting and made for an enjoyable process. She made us feel like we were her only clients, and our best interests were clearly her priority. She took the time to learn about us, our interests, and personalities, and in turn, helped us narrow in on a home that was 'us'. We never felt rushed or pressured and her positivity throughout the whole experience was invaluable.
She also has a great eye and vision for home improvement, interior design, and anything that could help increase the value of a prospective purchase. She has a wealth of contacts to help you through your inspection, closing, and renovations, which alleviates much of the stress.
I am positive anyone who decides to work with Kim will have an amazing experience.

I am pleased to offer this letter of recommendation for Kim O’Connell. I have worked with Kim over this past year looking for the perfect home. I found her to be very professional, hard-working, and always accessible. Rarely was there a time when I tried to reach her and could not get hold of her.
Kim is very prompt in providing the information I was looking for. Her attitude is always very pleasant and friendly. She is trust worthy and you can rely on her with your eyes closed.
Finding you your dream home is her ultimate goal; not just closing a deal. Kim goes out of her way to take you to the properties you are interested in and gives her honest opinion even if that means turning you away from it and getting a quicker sale for herself.
I had the opportunity of dealing with her in putting an offer on a property that I think is the ideal home for us. Had it not been for her prompt action on it, we probably would have ended up in a bidding war. Just by talking to the selling agent right away and convincing him to work only with us, Kim got us the house we were really interested in at a price we were happy with at our preferred closing.
I loved working with Kim and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an honest and reliable realtor.
Kim has all the skills, drive, creativity, vision and attention to detail that make her a true pleasure to work with.

Kim’s ability to negotiate and help me through the process was exemplary. When stress was at its highest for me, Kim helped calm any concerns and gently guide me, always listening and putting me and what I wanted first.
As a Real Estate investor, I have worked with many Real Estate agents in the past. Kim is very different from the norm. She never put herself before me. Kim’s goal was to serve me best and never just try to sell a house. She used her expertise to know when to point me in the right direction and explain all pros and cons so I could make the best-informed decision. She works very hard and diligently, always making herself available and staying in touch both during and after the sale. After the sale, she continues to help in every way from closing to contractors or just saying hi and getting together from time to time. She sees issues from all angles and has tremendous attention to detail.
Kim is not just my Realtor now but is now a friend. I enjoyed working with Kim and trust her so much that I have already recommended her to my close family who she is now working with.
