Purchasing our home during a pandemic as first-time home buyers, and doing so remotely, had plenty of opportunities to provoke anxiety, but she made sure everything was executed absolutely seamlessly. We felt so well taken care of by Hope, thanks to her patience, thorough communication, and willingness to go above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. At every step of the way we felt so comfortable having Hope as our advocate. I cannot recommend her enough” Read More ▾

Buyer
‟Hope went above and beyond to really get to know Justin and I. She really understood the specific style/features of homes that we were looking for and really cared about helping us to find what we were looking for. Hope was there almost immediately there to help us out every step of the way, checking out listings, making an offer, and moving throug h the crazy process of buying a foreclosure. Thanks to Hope, we were able to snag the home of our dreams, something that we honestly aren't sure would've been able to happen in this aggressive market without Hope and her amazing work! Even after purchasing our home, her recommendations and tips have all been the best! We couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with than Hope! We recommend her to everyone!!! Thanks, Hope!!!” Read More ▾

‟We could not have been any happier with our experience with Howard Hanna, but most specifically with our agent, Hope Yantek. After many dreadful and exhausting months with another agent/agency, our switch to Howard Hanna and Hope was not only a breath of fresh air, but Hope was just a dream to work with. I can not speak highly enough or brag about her enough to anyone asking about our home buying experience. We are so, so thankful that we found such a wonderful person and agent to work with while we went through our first home buying experience — Hope made it feel so effortless and enjoyable, a complete 180 from where we were for months prior to our switch. We will enthusiastically recommend you in the future to anyone buying or selling! THANK YOU HOPE!! .

‟Hope Yantek of the Kim Crane Group is wonderful to work with. She is professional, caring, helpful, patient, understanding, and works really hard to serve her clients! Highly recommended!”

Laura K.

Buyer
‟Our experience buying & selling with the Kim Crane Group was phenomenal! We worked with Hope Yantek and she exceeded every expectation. I have purchased & sold houses in other parts of the country before relocating to NE OH and never experienced a realtor with such unwavering customer service. Hope is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and hard working. She knows the market and was an amazing advocate representing us as a seller and buyer. She worked tirelessly to attract buyers for our Avon Lake house and found the perfect home for us in an impossible Rocky River market. She is meticulous with details and always available for communication despite being such a busy agent. She takes the stress out of moving- not an easy task. I would enthusiastically recommend Hope and the entire Kim Crane Group” Read More ▾

‟I can vouch for Kim and her team. We returned from overseas and bought a home about 6 months ago. We worked with Kim, Hope and the rest of their team and had an excellent experience throughout. We love our home, our neighborhood and our community. We've bought and sold other homes before and this was by far our best buying experience to date. Give Kim a call if you're looking to buy or sell. They won't let you down” Read More ▾

Christine Burroughs

Buyer
‟We are new to the Cleveland area, and were fortunate to work with Hope Yantek (Kim Crane Group-Howard Hanna) when searching for our home. She was helpful orienting us to the west side, our preferred location. She showed us many homes, and was patient as we ruled them out one-by-one. Many were lovely, several were interesting, but none felt like hom e. Finally, Hope sent an email with a listing that was right for us. We are happy with our home, love the location, and are grateful for Hope and all of her help” Read More ▾

‟We had an amazing first home buying experience thanks to Hope! She was very helpful in guiding us to the perfect home. She made the process smooth and comfortable and this huge decision seemed so much easier!”

Andrew

Buyer
‟Buying your first home can be an overwhelming experience. Luckily for me, I worked with Hope Yantek of the Kim Crane Group who made the process unbelievably easy and dare I say, fun. She bravely trudged through many listings with me before we found my dream home at a great cost, and I couldn't be happier. Having never been through the process mysel f, I was a bit overwhelmed and probably asked a few too many questions! However Hope was always available and more than eager to assist me. Her breadth of knowledge, kindness and effervescence made the process a breeze. Anyway looking to buy or sell in the area would be remiss to not talk to the Kim Crane Group, every person on the team is intelligent, hard working and a joy to be around. Thank you Kim Crane Group” Read More ▾

Diane

Buyer/Seller
‟Working with Hope Yantek was a pleasure. She was responsive, professional, and went that extra mile in helping finalize the transaction. When there were technical issues with the mortgage, Hope reached out to the title company to help resolve them. I would not hesitate to recommend Hope to any of my friends buying or selling a home!”

Emily K.

Seller
‟Kim Crane and her team, including Hope Yantek, were able to help us sell our house and purchase a new house with impeccable timing. With her team's guidance we had an offer within the first month on the market and had a concurrent offer for a new home that allowed us to close on both homes the same day and avoid temporary housing given we have youn g children and are expecting another in the fall. Her real estate knowledge and business savvy made the process go smoothly and we are very happy with the end result. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire a professional to assist with any real estate needs” Read More ▾
