I only have positive words for Kimberly's way of acting and working: she is first of all a lovely person; I have experienced her as very open-minded and straight forward. I have seldom seen somebody resolving issues so quickly professionally in all matters of the real estate transaction. I have always felt that I am in "good hands", because she is really passionate about her métier!
Renting an apartment is quite different than selling a house. The tenants can be your best friends or your worst nightmare, particularly when they live next door to you. With the City of Toronto rules that favour tenants, get a wrong tenant and you are stuck! I've been there. It is beyond awful. It sucks the blood out of you. Kimberley set the bar for tenants high. Her philosophy was clear and meshed with mine - give me a tenant that I don't have to worry about. Beyond the usual due diligence of on-site visit checks, credit checks, reference checks, employment checks and turning out the paperwork, it was the knowledge that someone was being my detective and flushing out the problems. I'd hand her a check for that peace of mind.

I have worked with Kimberley, both with purchasing and leasing, 3 times over the last 3 years. I cannot say enough about Kimberley's dedication, integrity, and industry savvy. Kimberley was patient and able to help us find a home we love! Her understanding of the market, ability to provide prompt response, and her diligence when dealing with negotiations was greatly appreciated and valued!
We have been working with Kimberley on a number of real estate transactions, including buying, selling, and leasing over the past couple of years. Kimberley provides more than real estate services, she makes sure she understands your needs and investment objectives and never drops the ball... She builds relationships of trust with her clients and we trust her instinct and decisions!

We had the pleasure of working with Kimberley as she helped my brother, a family friend, and I to find our first house in Toronto's west end. This was a daunting proposition as the market has been strong making it difficult for our generation. We wanted to find a budget fixer-upper that fit our needs for a reasonable price. Kimberley delivered beyond expectations as we purchased a property at asking price without a bidding war - which is almost unheard of in Toronto. Without a doubt her experience and expertise in Toronto's real estate market landed us this deal and we're incredibly grateful for this opportunity.
Kimberley has been an exceptionally attentive and generous agent. She responds quickly to questions and has been right on the mark with her observations and advice. I have not been an easy client to deal with, but Kimberley has always been considerate and very forgiving. If she is otherwise occupied when I request a viewing, she makes sure she gets a colleague to look after me. She has provided confidence and support throughout our search. I am very grateful that I know her and appreciate that she has worked so hard on my behalf. She is also a very interesting and fun person to deal with.
The process for choosing our first home was likely not dissimilar to many first time buyers in Toronto -- daunting, prolonged, and fraught with carefully considered and crafted offers that seemed to be "the one" until the moment they weren't. In other words, an emotional roller coaster. In our mind, what Kimberley provided was equal parts psychological and emotional support as we braved the biggest financial decision that most people ever make, in the quickest timeframe, and in a highly competitive environment. A special skill set was required.Throughout, we held on to the belief that we would "find the house we are meant to have", and I can confidently we couldn't be happier 3 years in. Kimberley's patience, wisdom, and professionalism got us that house. And it was so worth it!

We had a great experience working with Kimberley. Having only previously rented a condo downtown, my wife and I were new to the home buying scene and didn’t really know much about the market. We wanted to move out of our condo as we were looking at starting a family and didn’t want to deal with the stresses of not having sufficient space and moving with a baby. The house hunting began as a very frustrating process as the market was very competitive and we really didn’t have a great idea of what to expect or what we even wanted/needed for that matter. Kimberley was extremely helpful in guiding us through the process. She took the time to educate us on the market and really helped us figure out what we needed. We had a ton of questions, and she always made herself available to answer them. This allowed us to be a lot better equipped to search in this market, and made the process a lot less frustrating. When we finally found a house that met all our key criteria, Kimberley was very quick at getting all the paperwork in order and guiding us through all the steps. Today we have a home that we love and are enjoying with our two little ones. Thanks Kim for making this all possible.
It is a very belated note to formally thank you for your professionalism and understanding in the sale of my property. You showed my farm numerous times and I felt this to be a compliment to your excellent advertising skills. I appreciated your honesty, integrity and that you were quick to return calls and never out of reach. You go above and beyond and I would most certainly recommend your services to ANYONE that is interested in buying or selling a property.
I would highly recommend Kimberley to sell or to buy a new home, I found Kimberley to be professional, informed, and knowledgeable. Dealing with Kimberley I always felt assured, confident, and under no pressure. Her sense of humour always made it a pleasure to work with her.
As a first time buyer and a single woman I felt overwhelmed by the whole process of buying a small summer property. I decided to enlist the services of Kimberly Ezeard as my agent. Although I’m sure my purchase point was considerably lower than her clients in Toronto, Kimberly always made me feel like a valued client and no question was too small or too naive. Kim was fast and efficient with all my inquiries and she retuned my calls promptly and was thorough with her research. I believe Kim was able to gain more details and information from the selling agents because of her friendly and outgoing personality. Biding and purchasing on any property, no matter the price, can be a nerve racking and overwhelming experience. Kim calmly guided me through the process and helped me make clear, informed decisions. Once I had secured the property, she checked-in regularly to ensure that I was always on track with important dates and details (e.g., calling insurance, setting up meetings with lawyers, changing power companies over). Weeks after I had purchased my property I still wanted some additional information about other listings in the area. Although our contract was finished Kim took the time out of her busy schedule to follow up with my questions and sent me the information I was looking for. I feel very comfortable recommending Kimberly Ezeard as an agent. Purchasing a property should be an exciting and rewarding experience. For me, Kim ensured that it was. I am now a happy cottage owner looking forward to the summer! Thank you Kim.
We were looking for a rental to share. We saw many, many listings that we thought might work . Each property had it’s ups and downs and it was hard to see which ones were real possibilities. All we were seeing was jumble of properties each with it’s own- well ..properties. Kimberley was able to understand what our needs and to pick three properties that she thought were different ways of meeting those needs. We really liked one of them and wanted it. There were a number of different hoops we had to jump through. They didn’t seem like particularly easy hoops, but Kimberley was able to metaphorically line them up, and get us through them unscathed. We got the rental and we’re really pleased with it. We saw a jumble of different properties and didn’t have a clue. Kimberley picked three good possibilities, quite possibly the three best possibilities.

Kimberley is truthfully the only reason that we are homeowners in downtown Toronto. Our story is a bit unusual in that we were only looking for a home for two weeks prior to purchasing our current home. My husband and I saw a listing online, called up Kimberley on a referral from good friends who had used her previously, and she made time the very next day to show us the home. When that purchase fell through, two weeks later she had the brilliant idea to suggest that we consider a private sale from other clients of hers who were looking to sell but did not want to list their home. We saw it, fell in love with it, and had a signed Agreement of Purchase and Sale a few days later. It is accurate to say that if Kimberley had not gone out of her way to show us the privately sold home, there is no way we would be living in it today! We are forever grateful that she realized what we needed and was able to get it for us. She clearly cares very much about Toronto and her neighbourhood in particular, and I am happy to say that we now consider Kimberley both a friend and a neighbour. There is essentially no chance that we would ever use anyone but Kimberley in any future real estate dealings in Toronto.
When we first met Kimberley, about seven years ago, she was at an open house that we couldn't even dreamed of. We were just looking around. She made us feel very welcomed though. We talked about our needs and budget and that was the start of a great and long relationship. Our fate changed and with that our needs and budget. Family grew. She always listens, understands, accommodates. She has always been there for us every step, always honest and true to herself with strong values. Her smile and warm personality are priceless. We have bought with Kimberley's help two properties, sold our our condo and first house. She has also helped our best friends buy their first house in Toronto. She became a friend and I cant wait to show her our new renovated property once is finished!!
