What do you look for when selecting a real estate agent? 

Think about it. You are about to make a decision that will have a tremendous affect on your life and well being for a long time. Selecting the right professional to help you through this process is one of the first decisions you will need to make – and it’s one of the most important.

So a question you may be asking yourself now is –
Why Kim?

Of course you want an agent with Experience. Nothing has quite as many moving parts as a real estate transaction – appraisers, mortgage brokers, inspectors, contractors, escrow officers, and the agent representing the other party (all with their own interests) can make the process seem overwhelming. My experience gives me the skills needed to bring all of these diverse elements together. I have successfully completed over 250 homes sold in Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento and Sacramento. I am expert at navigating the complex process that is the real estate transaction.

Knowing the Market is critical. This is especially true given the shifting sands of today’s dynamic world of real estate. Today’s market presents some unique challenges. But along with these challenges come opportunities. As an active member of the local community for more than ten years, I have the knowledge and skills it takes to search out these opportunities. Let my knowledge of the market work to your advantage, so that you can make the best informed decision possible.

I am Dedicated to one thing – your satisfaction. Throughout the entire process I represent your interests and yours alone. I stay on top of the details and keep the process on track. One thing my long experience has taught me is that there will be bumps in the road. I stay focused on removing obstacles that may get in the way of a successful transaction. I remain your devoted advocate until a final conclusion is reached that meets or exceeds your expectations.  

From the very beginning of our relationship I am committed to providing you Exceptional Service. Many people describe real estate as a sales industry. I believe real estate is a service industry. As a self employed entrepreneur for nearly thirty years I understand what it means to provide the highest level of service to my clients. I let my clients make the point. Over ninety percent of my business is from returning clients or referrals from existing clients.

As a licensed Realtor, I adhere to a strict code of ethics. But my commitment to ethics goes beyond my professional obligations.  For me, it’s personal. Integrity is my hallmark; it’s what my reputation is built on.

Put simply – experience, knowledge of the market, dedication, exceptional service, and personal integrity provides the answer to your question – Why Kim?

Kim Merrell Lamb worked with me through what was an emotional and potentially stressful home sale and purchase. She was so patient and understanding, and as soon as we were ready to go, she fired on all cylinders. I've greatly enjoyed working with her and should I have real estate needs again, will absolutely work with her.

Kim has a great reputation in the complex I was living in. After I met her personally there was no turning back! Kim had ideas about my condo as soon as she saw it the first time..i could see it in the way her eyes twinkled! She improved on this initial vision, and I left town permanently. Kim staged, advertised, negotiated and delivered with a final sale while I sat in San Diego. I have already recommended Kim and Lyon's to three people in Davis Kim responded to every email and text promptly, she of erred her professional advice and insight only after hearing my impressions and questions first, she worked with all the parties (staging, Lyons, Broker, Buyer, contractor) with the same professionalism and commitment. Those who managed the escrow were also fabulous, prompt, accurate, friendly

Those who managed the escrow were also fabulous, prompt, accurate, friendly Kim staged my condo on a Wednesday, held open house on Saturday and had two solid offers for my Tuesday morning. However, the city of davis permit process was not as we expected (!!) and the delay was far longer than anyone anticipated. Kim marshaled the troops, kept the buyer engaged, communicated daily to me, and convinced to contractor to do whatever was necessary and we closed ON TIME by a nose! I never doubted that Kim would pull it off...failure was impossible to her. But my point is that Kim and your team are clearly in it for the client and I was never concerned that any of you would leave me hanging.

From the time we first met Kim until completion of the sale, I had full confidence and trust that she knew exactly what to do to make our selling experience efficient and painless. Kim is very knowledgeable and professional but also adds caring, patience and friendliness. We couldn't have asked for more.

From beginning to end of the homebuying process, Kim Merrell Lamb helped us every step of the way. She has first hand knowledge of the neighborhood we were interested in, and she knew how to help us craft an unbeatable offer. Once our offer was accepted, she shared with us a timeline of important dates so that we could keep on schedule. Kim and her office staff were very responsive to our questions and concerns and that made her stand out. I would recommend Kim Merrell Lamb to anyone looking to buy a home without hesitation.


—William and Sonia Sanchez, Sacramento
  /  

Kim is so knowledgeable about all Sacramento neighborhoods. We were new to the area and wanted to be fully educated before we purchased a home. Kim was our teacher. She showed us all the different neighborhoods and explained the pros and cons of each. We were able to decide which neighborhood best fit our family! We would recommend Kim to anyone looking for a knowledgeable professional to help in the purchase of their home.


—Mike & Sandy Garrison

Kim really cared about helping us find the right home that would best meet our needs. She was knowledgeable and pointed us in the right direction where we eventually bought. We ultimately followed her recommendations because we trusted her completely.

—Katie, Sacramento
  /  

Kim Lamb came highly recommended and it was evident from the onset of our relationship that she understood our needs and had our best interests in mind when selecting properties to show us. She has extensive knowledge of the area and was able to give us information up front that otherwise would not have come to light until disclosures were made. Her handling of business aspects of the transaction was highly professional and she was extraordinarily responsive to any questions that arose, being available during all phases of the transaction and communicating openly and honestly throughout. Kim Lamb worked very hard to find a property that suited our needs and then to ensure a smooth transaction.


—Kurt McCormick, Davis
  /  

Kim Merrell Lamb has extensive knowledge of the real estate market in Davis and a solid marketing strategy. We had an offer for the full asking price of the property on the second day of listing and closed escrow within a month.

Kim helped us every step of the way which to us was critical since we were living in Berkeley and buying in Davis. I hope Kim is still in the business should my family ever need to move again.

Kim was fantastic four years ago when our search was not fruitful. No guilt, no judgment. Just patience and cheer. This year we found the place quickly and easily!


—Leslie Crenna

Kim was amazing. We have 0 complaints. She went above and beyond and made us feel very comfortable. Justin was just as helpful, just as approachable, and just as amazing! We were first time homebuyers and they made the process super simple! They took the time to explain everything and made us feel 100% at ease!


—Molly & Mary, Sacramento
  /  

Kim and her colleague Justin Lamb were extremely helpful when it came to choosing our investment property. They were honest and helped us to set realistic expectations for our purchase. They were very approachable and easy to reach when it came to working out the details for the house and answering questions. I would recommend Kim and Justin to all of my acquaintances looking for a new home.


—Kevin from Davis, CA
  /  

Kim is extremely knowledgeable about the Davis area housing market. She came recommended by colleagues at UC Davis, and we were not disappointed. Kim set up an online profile for us to our specifications, so that we could begin our search remotely. She made us feel like her only clients during our brief house-hunting trip to Davis, when time was of the essence. Kim went above and beyond the call of duty. She was indispensable in making our purchase possible and even helped with the logistics of our relocation to Davis. We are very happy and very grateful.

Kim's experience speaks for itself. She is extremely knowledgeable, understands the market and current conditions, knows all the contacts (i.e. can get you into a house before it goes to market) and most importantly, is set on finding you the RIGHT home, not any old home. Upon meeting Kim, we were clear on what we were looking for. We felt no pressure to bid on homes which were not of interest to us. In fact, there were a couple homes we considered (after looking for a few months), but the location was not ideal (this was not entirely obvious to us). When I asked about these homes, Kim would kindly express here opinion and say that she does not recommend bidding on those houses. She actually talked us out of bidding on homes that we would have clearly not been happy in! As an added bonus, Kim has a previous background in interior design and has a wonderful aesthetic. We have already walked the home a couple times with her AND she has provided excellent insight on everything from interior wall colors, to a kitchen remodel, to landscaping, to floor and counter materials. I would highly recommend Kim as we will continue to use here in the future.

I am new to the area and very eager to find a place that fit my lifestyle and needs. Kim is intuitive and listened to my concerns and identified the ideal property. I am pleased with my purchase and she was also able to connect me with contractors and other vendors for related needs for my relocation. This was valuable because I am unfamiliar with the area and it saved me time and money and headaches. I am sure you will enjoy your house hunting experience with Kim.

Kim was great. Kept me informed all the way until final close of escrow. Worked hard and stimulated a lot of action of this property in a very slow period...just before the upturn. Kim is a delightful person, as well as very professional. She is well organized and was always available to answer my questions and phone calls. Thank you Kim. NRM

Kim has an abundant supply of integrity, passion and skill. She also projects a calm appreciated by us as we were also in the midst of purchasing another home, downsizing and moving many miles away from a community we love.

Kim was absolutely fabulous to work with, hands-down. She was honest and professional yet fun too and we enjoyed her company. She provided her professional opinion, laid out the pros and cons of various decisions we had to make, made herself available around our schedule, and went above and beyond in answering our questions and just supporting us through our entire selling and buying process. Since moving in she has checked in on us to make sure everything is working out. We cannot say enough good things about Kim and would, and already have, recommend her to family and friends.

Kim made the home buying process stress free! She is very knowledgeable, professional, and has excellent customer service. Kim kept me well informed during the entire home buying process from start to finish. I received my keys last week and I'm very excited to finally say that I'm a homeowner. I looked for houses in the past with other realtors and I can honestly say that Kim is a leader and expert in the field. Kim customized her service to meet my needs and assist me get the home of my dreams. Kim is by far one of the BEST realtors in town.

Working with Kim Merrell Lamb was wonderful. We had originally planned on interviewing several realtors, but after meeting Kim, I canceled the rest. Kim is an excellent realtor, an advocate, and a calming presence when things get tough. I believe it is the tough times that show true colors and demonstrate just how good a realtor really is... We bought a home in Davis during a market "frenzy" as the interest rates began to climb and home inventories were incredibly low. Homes were selling for over asking price, and multiple, extremely competitive bids were submitted by eager buyers in Davis. Kim was calm and encouraging, writing a clean and appealing offer. Our offer was one of 6 offers submitted and was the offer selected! Kim quickly arranged all our inspections (and attended them!) and kept us on track for a quick escrow. Now for the part that went wrong... Our loan was underwriter approved but an error on the lender's part almost resulted in us losing the loan (and our home!). Kim was incredibly calm, picking us up and dusting us off while quickly (and miraculously) arranging for another lender to step in on the home stretch. Although the original lender returned to us with an apology and correction, the second-- super kind and awesome lender (Jen Barth-Vitek) and Kim offered hope when we hit bottom. I believe this is most important when selecting a realtor (and lender).... Will they be there when things go wrong? The process can get confusing quickly if unexpected things go wrong and having an experienced advocate is priceless. Kim's words of wisdom, advocacy, and quick actions as well as her constant communication were incredible to us. Two days after moving into our amazing, new home, I am finding I already miss communicating throughout the days with Kim! Oh and a realtor's reputation DOES matter. Kim "plays well in the sandbox" with the real estate community. This is important in so many ways. Everyone we interacted with had words of praise for her. Consider the importance of this in a multiple offer situation or quick turn around deadlines with contractors. The community of Davis likes working with Kim! Kim gave us advice when we needed it, space when we wanted it, and respect at every step of the way. My expectations were high and Kim met them with ease. Thank you Kim - it was an amazing journey! (I know this is a really long review, but this is the type of information I was looking for prior to selecting a realtor - plus valuable info I learned along the way.)

Kim took the time to find out what my needs were and then researched homes that met my criteria in terms of space, location and price. I was looking for a home in midtown that would provide my daughter a home, and also be an investment. She met with my daughter (I'm out of state) at times convenient for my daughter, even giving my daughter a ride back to her office so she wouldn't have to bus back. She responded to any questions or concerns promptly either by phone or email, and immediately sent out any listings which met our needs. She was not only professional, and obviously very familiar with the Sacramento market, but extremely personable, likeable, even charming. My daughter felt immediately at ease and in good hands with Kim. Plus Kim was able to provide me with the names and contact info of experienced mortgage professionals. Unfortunately, due to some changes in my personal circumstances, I had to put the purchase of a property in Midtown on hold, but if/when I'm ready to look again, I would not hesitate to contact Kim.
