Seller
‟Kim Crane had a contract on our house in an amazingly short period of time. We put her in an interesting situation -- "sell our house, but don't advertise it". Our sale came through her extensive network of contacts. She kept all our requests in mind - confidentiality and pricing. Kim did her research, and was excellent at selling the unique featur es & construction quality of our home. We would definitely recommend her and her team” Read More ▾

‟Easy words to describe Kim Crane and her group: professional, engaged, and passionate. These are words one could only hope to describe the team they work with to make one of the largest purchases in their lives AND selling it, too! Kim and the team were our advocates and made sure my husband and I stayed educated on next steps and what to expect. E ven with minor hiccups during the journey, Kim remained as a steady voice, our advocate, and truly elevated the way we think as new home buyers AND as sellers. Thank you Kim and the Kim Crane Group for helping us find our home in our dream neighborhood and coaching us to get our home turn-key ready! 10/10 for the experience with the Kim Crane Group” Read More ▾

‟I would highly recommend Kim and her team and if the need arises would certainly use her services again. This process could not have been more convenient for my wife and I considering we live out of state.”

Seller
‟Kim and her team’s real estate knowledge and business sensibility make the selling of your home easy! Excellent communication and authenticity cut through in everything they do! Simply put, they gained our trust!”

Jacqueline Kramig

Buyer
‟My husband and I met Kim as she was the listing agent on a home we were curious about. After meeting Kim we chose to have her as our agent for the purchase of this particular home, which was also her listing. We were impressed with her customer service, attention to detail, and knowledge of the real estate market in the area. Once we settled into o ur new home and the holidays passed it became time to list and sell our previous home. Thinking back to our experience with Kim and her entire team, there was no question that she was the best choice for listing our old home. Kim runs and incredible operation. She provides personal service, outstanding marketing, a team approach with each team member an expert at her role, and realistic feedback. In addition she sold our home quickly, in a few weeks, for our asking price. Kim is not afraid of hard work and it has certainly paid off in her quality of service and great success. Congratulations Kim. “Love and Honor” Read More ▾

Tad and Nancy S.

Seller
‟Working with Kim and her team was a pleasure. She listened to what we wanted to do, gave fair and honest assessments of the market, and executed the sale of our Rocky River house in 3 days. This is the second time we have used Kim and her team on a real estate transaction in the last 18 months. I highly recommend the Crane Group.”

Kelly Manderfield

Buyer
‟Kim Crane and her team are the West Side of Cleveland's No. 1 Team for good reason. My husband and I were searching for specific criteria in a home in the highly competitive market of Rocky River. Kim's real estate expertise and experience delivered us the perfect home. Kim and her team seamlessly helped us navigate through the process while being flexible and responsive to our needs. Additionally, they quickly sold our home located in Avon. We highly recommend the Kim Crane Group” Read More ▾

Diane Jackson

‟I enjoy working with Kim and Kate. They are at the same time personal and professional. The team has excellent communication and follow-through. They will sell your house. They will get you the house that you want to purchase. They take the stress out of home buying and selling.”

Andrew Thomas

Seller
‟Kim and her team sold two of our homes in the last few years and both were sold within days of listing. Both were sold OVER asking price, and handled with absolute ease. They were professional, easy to work with, and genuinely fun to be around. For our next home in the Cleveland area, there's no question who we will be working with.”

Cyndi and Kevin Norman

Seller
‟Kim Crane has far exceeded any expectations we had in selling our Rocky River Home. Our house hit the MLS the week between Christmas and New Years, a time when most tell you NOT to list your home. It was sold within 48 hours. All of this occurred during a blizzard while we were out of the country, using Apps to sign seller documents. What sets Kim apart is her professionalism, her network and her sense of urgency” Read More ▾

Areal Cesario

‟Working with Kim Crane and her team was so easy I can't believe it. She was prompt to our meetings, made good recommendations, had a team of professionals and delivered what she promised. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. We have 2 young sons so the thought of selling our home was extremely stressful but Kim helped along the way. S he even went above and beyond helping us when our agent was MIA during the process of buying our new home. I wish we had her helping on the buying end as well. We will definitely recommend Kim Crane and her team to anyone buying one the West side of Cleveland! Thank you Kim!” Read More ▾

T. Roth

Buyer
‟Kim Crane and team are nothing short of amazing at what they do! Kim was very attentive to our needs and wants during our home buying experience. She was available for showings or arranged a team member to meet us at a listing the same day. Putting in an offer on our dream home was scary for us, but Kim's research and expertise put our minds at eas e. Her network of realtors proved to work in our favor as she had a good relationship with the selling agent. We won our dream house in this crazy market and we are forever grateful for Kim Crane and team!” Read More ▾

‟We had a very positive experience working with Kim Crane, and her team. They were responsive, and incredibly well versed in the area. They listened closely to our wish list, and helped us find the perfect home for our needs. Without them we'd very likely still be looking, and feeling frustrated!”

‟I have worked with Jen Davis and Kim Crane before when I bought my first house. This time around, I was buying and selling. Once again, it was a truly exceptional experience. I had every confidence in my agent from beginning to end, and it gave me such peace of mind to know they were with me in this process. I always tell everyone about how great m y experience has been! I am so grateful for all that they do” Read More ▾

Debbie Durbin

Seller
‟After several months of trying unsuccessfully to sell my house by owner, I turned to Kim Crane and her team. The personal attention I received was truly remarkable and the time they spent holding open houses, showing my house and guiding me through the process was wonderful. I only wish I’d have made the decision to hire Kim and her team sooner as the outcome was great and they made everything so easy for me.” Read More ▾

Stephanie Hayden

Buyer
‟Kim Crane and her team were a wonderful group of women to work with when my husband and I were searching for our first home. In addition to being professional and pleasant to be around, they were very knowledgeable about the Cleveland market and were always available to show us listings, no matter what time of day it was! This trait was especially critical since we were hoping to find a home in Rocky River, where listings are rarely on the market for more than a couple of days! Without her quick communication and keen eye for what we were looking for, there's no chance we would've found a home in this community! We just closed last week and couldn’t be more grateful for the Kim Crane Group and everything they did for us” Read More ▾

Jay Klauminzer

‟We've now worked with Kim and her team twice in the last few years and they've been amazing both times. Their knowledge of the industry and strategy are unmatched (have worked with several other realtors), and the entire sales process - from photos/listing, pricing strategy, negotiating strategy - is top notch. Kim and her team have even gone above and beyond to work with me while remote, taking care of things outside of their scope of responsibility. I highly recommend Kim on both the buy and sell side. Thanks again” Read More ▾

‟Kim, being a Rocky River resident, had exceptional knowledge of home values in the area and helped us set a fair price for our home. She found a buyer for our home in two weeks! She was extremely professional at all times and was always available to answer questions - including on weekends and holidays. Kim eased our concerns about accepting a bid with a VA loan and walked us through the process step-by-step. We would highly recommend her to our friends and family” Read More ▾

Buyer
‟Two days after my mother’s condo went on the market, there were four offers. The winning bid exceeded the asking price. Although negotiations and the sale took place with no family members residing in-town, we were kept in the loop and felt part of the process every step of the way. Kim Crane is personable, professional, honest, communicative and h ard-working — all traits that go into making a successful real estate agent. Kim’s results are outstanding but what makes the experience exceptional is that she and her team are really nice people. My mother and I will enthusiastically recommend Kim and her team to our friends” 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 ▾

‟Kim and Jen Davis did a wonderful job helping us close on our new home in Rocky River. Trying to close on a home long distance certainly is not the preferred method.
