My wife Patti and I, have been privileged to be involved with multiple transactions with Kim Bibb. Years ago, when considering purchasing a beach house, and before we knew anything about The Peninsula Point, we met Kim one Sunday afternoon -- she was holding an open house for one of her listings. Subsequent to that initial meeting, we've been on both sides of transactions with her representation; we bought, we sold, we purchased again. She handled all transactions professionally as she represented us as buyers and/or as sellers. She also performed a successful leasing function and has advised us toward a convenient summer rental. Kim has wonderful communication skills, is an excellent listener and processes requirements beautifully. Her knowledge and level of expertise is unquestionable. She is a true professional who cares about her clients and her relationship with her clients -- SHE'S THE BEST!! We look forward to working with Kim in all our future endeavors at The Peninsula Point.
Kim, is an exceptional broker. She has wealth of market knowledge and has a "can do" attitude and approach that made our purchase of a property a positive memorable experience. She is efficient and I hope to work with her and her partner Tara Howarth again.
Kim Bibb represented us (as well as the seller) in the successful purchase of a home on the Balboa Peninsula in 2014. Many of the critical steps in the process took place while we were on vacation out of the country and yet Kim and her colleague Tara Howarth helped us coordinate all the necessary paperwork, inspections, etc while we were away. They were always respectful of our interests and those of the seller and they were timely in their responses to our requests for information or help or access to the property. We ended up with a beautiful home at a fair price and managed to close escrow ahead of schedule.
Do you want an amazing experience in Newport beach and especially on the peninsula, you need to have Kim Bibb find you your dream home. She is not only the best and most knowledgeable but charming, down to earth and very personal. Kim has lived there for over 24 years and raises her family there too. Kim has probably been in every house over a dozen times and has your best interest at heart when she works with you. TRULY THE BEST ANYWHERE, THE BEST
Kim is "an agent for change". She is extremely effective in understanding the objectives of both buyer and seller, She is very aware of time and speed needed to complete a buy/sell deal, and is "situationally sensitive" to the relationship needs of each party. Kim has represented my in both leasing as a lessor and as a lessee. I will buy my next home through Kim.
