Helped me find a home to rent
Kimberly was EXTREMELY professional and went above and beyond what was required for her in order for us to find our home. This was a very stressful process since we had moved across the country and she was on top of everything even when we were out of state. She was willing to work as long as it took for us to find the right property. She was always punctual and had a very friendly and warm personality. Overall, she helped make a difficult process as simple as possible!

First time home buying is stressful especially when you are out of state. Kim was phenomenal throughout the process and made it look easy. She is very knowledgeable, patient , detailed oriented, and educated us throughout the whole process. Their use of technology like docuSign made paper work easy. She was very responsive to all our queries. Kim and Rod were never pushy and always provided unbiased analysis and advice. Kim made sure that we buy the house that we like. She was always looking out for our best interest. We are glad to have Kim as our agent. Kim also helped us find contractors after the closing. We highly recommend them. Less ... More

My husband and I found a Home that was listed with Rod. We called him and the very next day we met Kim and Rod at the house. Rod explained the house was a short sale and the condition was less than desirable, but once we went in we knew we could make this our own. I thought the process would take forever but the communication between Rod and Kim made the process seem flawless. It only took 4 months from offer to close. That is truely amazing in the short sale world. We now have our dream home and a great investment. Less ... More

We recently worked with Kimberly Rivera to purchase our first home and we couldn't be happier. She was always willing to show us more houses and never had any issues with "starting over" when we changed our minds about what we wanted. It became very evident early on that she wasn't trying to just sell us a house; rather, she was trying to HELP us find the right house. She truly has your back and will do whatever it takes to make you happy with your home purchase, even if it means looking at 50 houses. I will definitely be calling her to help me find next house and would recommend everyone to do the same Less ... More

After a horrible experience with a previous realtor, I went searching for a realtor that would make my first time home buying experience a great one. I hit the jackpot when I found Kim. She is simply AMAZING! She was very knowledgeable about the area I was looking in. She always came prepared with as much information on the properties as she could find and she walked through all the properties with me to make sure I had the best experience. It was like house hunting with my best friend. She explained everything about the home buying process with me, which was something my previous realtor failed to do. I was amazed by her caring and warm personality and could not be more grateful for her. Less ... More

Finding the home of your dreams can be an overwhelming experience and you never know to the last minute what's going to happen. Let me tell you . . . working with Kim and Rod has been such a blessing!!!! We could not and would not have this house without them. They responded to us quickly and were on top of their game every minute during our house purchasing experience. I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for EVERYTHING they did. They go above and beyond what is necessary to get you in your new home. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Kim & Rod and have made two friends along the way. Thanks again guys, you're truly the BEST!!!! The Ardisana's Less ... More

Kim was so amazing and patient with all our questions. I was a first time buyer and didn't understand all the termonology and no matter what time it was she was there to help. I couldn't be any happier. Kum knows the area and does her research and will help you the best she can. Great job and thank you!

We had the pleasure of working with Rod and Kim on two real estate deals. The first time was the purchase of a home back in 2011. They were very patient when searching for the perfect place. When we did find the property we wanted, their knowledge and experience helped us negotiate the best deal. The second time was the sale of a home. Again their knowledge and expertise was the key to selling our home for top dollar in a very short period of time. I highly recommend Rod and Kim?s services. Less ... More

We had a great experience working with Kim and Rod. It was our first time looking for a home and we were very nervous to start since we were not sure where to even begin. Kim helped us every step of the way and the made the process as smooth as possible. She was very quick to respond to all of our inquiries and concerns and had a great knowledge of all the neighborhoods we were interested in. We highly recommend Kim and Rod and when the time comes, will definitely work with them again!

I was in town for a very short time to find a home. Kim was recommended to me. We spoke by phone and I told her exactly the type of home I was looking for. She listened - a rare quality often - and only showed me homes that met the criteria I wanted. Because of her abilities, I was able to find the home I wanted quickly. I was impressed with her knowledge of the area I was looking in and again her ability to listen to what her client wanted. She helped walk me through the whole purchase (by phone and email as I was out of state). She also walked me through the closing process and made it painless. Less ... More

Kim has been the Best Realtor I've dealt with! She was so accommodating with all our changing requests. This was my sons first time buying experience, Kim took the extra time to listen to the both of us and look for the perfect place that would fit my sons need. Also, she took the extra time to explain all the steps needed for buying and closing on the place he chose. I couldn't thank Kim and Rod enough for caring so much about my son, Cody and giving him their Best! I have already recommended Kim to family and friends because we feel she's THE BEST!

Helped me buy and sell homes
We worked with Kim to both find our new home, and sell our existing home. Kim was very patient and accommodating when it came to showing us homes. Our criteria for size, location and price of homes changed several times during the process, and Kim always adjusted her search to fit exactly what we were looking for. We did finally purchase our new home and couldn't be happier. Kim and Rod really helped us so much in preparing our home for sale. Kim had great contacts for service providers who helped us to make our home ready for sale. Kim sold our home one day after it was listed! Through the whole process of buying and selling, Kim made us feel like we were old friends. We so enjoyed working with her, and Rod, and everyone they connected us with (financing, legal, etc.). I highly recommend Kim Rivera. Less ... More

It has been a pleasure working with both Kim and Rod over the past few years. They are knowledgeable, honest and provided excellent customer service in helping my both my nephew and my son purchase their first homes. They were always available to answer questions and help guide them. They made the whole process easier, less stressful and less confusing for both first time buyers. I highly recommend them!

Kim was great to work with. She showed us many homes in the area where we wanted to live in our price range (I'm guessing over 50 homes). She was very patient with us, no pressure, helped us secure a loan, and ultimately found us a great home. I would reccomend Kim, and use her again for my real estate needs.

Rod and Kim Rivera were the most professional and service oriented realtors I have met in a long time. Despite a hectic schedule on my part, they made every effort to work hard on my behalf and make the sales process as easy as possible. Rod is meticulous on his paperwork and follow up and Kim is a perfect guide to showing your home. I would recommend them without reservation and am very grateful to them for all the hard work and patience they showed to me.

My wife and I could not have been more pleased with Kim during the sale of our house. Kim handled all details, no matter how minute, right up to and including the closing. We found her to be organized, extremely accessible and communicative every step of the way. Best of all, she generated a lot of interest in the property which resulted in a fast sale that was significantly more money than what we hoped for.

Kim was my agent on a home purchase in Lisle, IL. Kim exceeded my already high expectations in every way. She helped me navigate through what was a very complex deal, involving liens and alike; keeping me informed and aware all the while. Home buying often ends up being a negative experience at best. Kim?s upbeat attitude, humor and endless energy made my experience very positive. She will, without question, be my agent on all future real estate dealings.

We worked with Kim. She was really really patient with us as first time home buyers and very understanding about our indecisiveness. She was easy to get a hold of (even at 11pm) and even sacrificed her Mother's Day to show us homes. She was there from the beginning to the end, she had great recommendations to help us find the right mortgage guy and real estate attorney. Her advice was spot on every time. We would definitely use her again in the future if we decide we need a different home but she already found us the PERFECT home so she is just going to have to settle for us referring all of our friends to her. Although we never met Rod in person, he did set us up with Kim so for that, we thank you! Less ... More

My boyfriend and I worked with Kim on purchasing our first house together. We were I'm sure very difficult clients, we had very specific requirements and not a giant budget. On top of that our requirements were always changing and our availability was very difficult to work with. Kim was very helpful and patient throughout the entire process. We had several houses we were interested in that were stolen from under our noses, so for quite sometime we would send her houses or places we were interested in and go out that same day. We were almost going out about every other day, and giving Kim very little notice, she was always very accommodating. We worked with Kim for several months, not once did she pressure us into making a decision or into making an offer. She was always very patient and kind and very understanding with our hesitations. She answered as many of our questions as she could and those she wasn't sure of she would look up for us. After working with Kim for some time we finally found an amazing first home that we both love!! Kim feels more like a friend then anything, and thanks to her we have an amazing home. Both my boyfriend and I, give her the highest regards we would recommend her to anyone. She is hands down the best realtor that we could have asked for during this process for us and made everything so much less stressful then it could have been. Thanks so much for your help Kim!!!

My boyfriend and I were first time home buyers and had very different requirements for our home. I wanted updates and a newer home, while yard and garage space were important to my boyfriend. Kim Rivera was extremely patient with us (through our many disagreements) and ended up finding us a home that made both of us very happy, all while staying within our budget. Kim had no problem taking us on MANY showings when I know most other realtors would have become frustrated with our indecisiveness. Not only did Kim go above and beyond in regards to showings, etc., she also is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about real estate. She had no problem answering our many questions about the process. I would suggest her to anyone looking for a realtor. I assure you if we ever are in the market again, we will surely give her a call. Less ... More

Rod Rivera is in the process of helping me sell our home and his wife, Kim Rivera, found us a home which we are now living in. Kim went so far above what we expected in a real estate agent that we would recommend her to anyone. I had agents I contacted, in fact a very successful local agent, and never heard back from her and another agent didn't contact me for almost a month and that is why we went with Kim. There were so many twists and turns in our deal and so much to work out that I would have understood if Kim wanted to walk away from the deal; she didn't. She provided contacts, in related fields, that helped get our deal completed and completed to my immense satisfaction. Kim is extremely professional but has a compassionate heart and it shows in her concern for her clients. If in the future we do any kind of a real estate transaction it will only be with Rod and Kim; they are an incredible team! Less ... More

Rod made several mistakes in the deal, including messing up on communicating our acceptance of the bank's counteroffer. The result was the bank closed our file, lowered the price again and we lost the property in a multiple offer situation. He acted very unprofessionally and was indifferent to his mistakes.
Response fromKimberly Jo & Rod Rivera
I understand it is difficult to be in a multiple offer situation to be out bid or out qualified and not get the home you want. Unfortunately in this transaction I was not your Real Estate Agent. I represented the Seller and in doing so, my priority is to make sure I honor them with their best interest. It worked out exceptional for the Seller in this case. I am sorry it did not with you and your Agent. Thank you!

Rod was my broker on the short sale of my condo in the Streeterville neighborhood in Chicago. He did a masterful job. Although Rod is not based in the city, showings on my unit started immediately. I had a tenant living in the unit at the time and Rod was very respectful to her needs and schedule. Rod had my unit under contract within 6 months with a qualified buyer. I cannot recommend Rod highly enough. We closed within 1 year of starting the short sale proceedings.

Rod is very good at what he does. Extremely knowledgeable and has an expertise in selling homes in duress. He knows how to cut through the red tape while at the same time being patient and calm through what can be a very stressful period. If you need your home sold, Ron is the person you want as your quarterback... hands down.
