"This being our first home purchase, we needed advice. We found Kim and she helped us every step of the way".
A. Eldredge (Yarmouth)
"Kim worked with our family to find the perfect home! In this difficult market she guided us through the process and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Her knowledge of the cape, the neighborhoods, and real estate in general made the process much easier and put my mind at ease. We have already referred her to another family member, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house on the Cape."
Jordan Berry (Yarmouthport, MA)
"Kim was very professional, courteous and dedicated at meeting our needs in buying our house. She helped make it happen! There were some snags along the way, the pandemic, stock market instability and a death in the sellers family, but it all worked out just fine."
Michael & Denyse Turpin (257 Stage Harbor, Chatham)
In a down real estate market, with very poor economic markets, we listed, showed, contracted and sold our Chatham house in less than 45 days.
A major reason for our success was the efforts of Kim Arestad our Wm Raveis realtor.
We interviewed more than 6 agents and only Kim brought to our project a positive and informed plan. All the other realtors had a preconceived market price and an embedded limit to our properties value. Kim was open minded, accepting and creative in positioning our house for the true value of the land, house and community.
She started with her own photography and staging that highlighted the smartest aspects of our house. She then held several open houses and pursued potential buyers with enthusiasm but also smart logical price justifications for all aspects of our property.
We would thoroughly and unequivocally recommend Kim and her real estate talents. She and her company bring local market knowledge, internet savvy, and a positive culture to selling real estate.

"You were all we expected in a real estate agent, and more. We will be forever grateful to you."
Dan & Linda Hatch
"She was amazingly helpful and supportive from the first time we met her until the closing in Barnstable. She understood our needs, worked hard to get the best value from the contractors
and successfully smoothed over any difficulties we encountered with the town inspectors. She arranged the moving of furniture and clean- out of the house after the sale and always kept us up
to date every step of the way.
She was wonderful to work with and became a friend, making what might have been an arduous and painful process into an a pleasure."
Leta Serafim (Sudbury)
"I stumbled across Kim when I was seeking residential real estate in a very competitive seller's market from out of state. I despaired ever being able to find something without having it snatched away from me before I could act, but Kim was able to rally very quickly and accommodate my very short window of opportunity to look at properties in person. We found a wonderful property after expert advice on which properties to view, and I was able with her help to place an acceptable bid right way, securing the deal. Then Kim handled everything effectively for me remotely while I was still out of state. She is also supported by a very effective team of other professionals in regard to mortgages, insurance, service providers, etc. I highly recommend her as a realtor."
P. Waldron (Barnstable)
"Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness
My wife and I met Kim when she had an open house. We were in the early stages of house hunting on the Cape. We attended quite a few open houses and met many realtors. She without question stood out in her knowledge of the business and professionalism. When we decided to sell a few months later, there was no question as to who we wanted. She sold our condo and found us our dream home on the Cape. Every step of the way she was with us. She's the Best of the Best!"
"Coming from France, we were delighted to find a French-speaking agent, Kim, who was able to explain our transaction in both French and English.
We really value Kim's listening and customer orientation skills
Sophie and Anthony"
Anthony & Sophie P
"We have used Kim for 2 transactions and she was excellent for both. Next time we buy a home on the Cape she will be the first person we contact."
Joseph R. Plante (Medway, MA)
"While an interest party showed up at the auction; Kim was the Bank's local presence to help quickly bring about a quick closing. As a Bank we do not want to own real estate and with Kim's assistance owned the property on our books for less than 60 days."
"My wife and I would highly recommend William Raveis Real Estate and particularly our Agent Kim Arestad! Kim was extremely helpful, professional, knowledgeable and responsive. We are very happy with and excited about our new home on Cape Cod and could not have done it without Kim!"
"Outstanding command of detail as well as knowledge of property"
"We received exceptional service from our Raveis agents. Their expertise and professionalism could not be over-stated. Also, when [our first agent]became injured in an auto accident, Kim Arestad came in seamlessly and provided excellent service to us as well. What a phenomenal job! Thank you Bill and Chris."
"Listings, mortgage and loan underwriting were excellent."
Perry J Kophammer (Brewster, MA)
"Kim Arestad went above and beyond in her efforts to sell our property; holding Open House events every week until it was sold. We live out of state so Kim took care of making sure all permits and qualifications were up to date and within town ordinance guidelines. She also helped put us in touch with people to make repairs, dispose of furniture, and final clearing out of house. We were almost sad to have the sale finalized because we feel we made a good friend with Kim, now we miss the weekly phone calls and updates."
Elizabeth A Delanoy (Brewster, NY)
"Honest feedback on the areas, properties, sale prices.
<br />Drive to go above and beyond to support our search.
<br />Preparing, submitting and getting accepted our offer within 2 hours on Sunday afternoon, July 5th 2020."
Tanya Mezhebovsky (Bradford, CT)
"Kim makes purchasing a home an easy transaction on a timely schedule. Kim knows how to close a sale expertly. Terrific fun!"
Salwa Hatoum (Harwich, MA)
"I met my agent at an open house, was very helpful and provided subsequent listings that met my criteria. My agent advocated for me, was responsive, followed through, kept me informed and managed expectations and next steps well. An excellent communicator."
Anita Harrington (Concord, MA)
"Our real estate agent went above and beyond to help us with the sale of our summer home. We especially appreciated all she did for us locally since we live a distance away."
Tim Hurley (Dennis, MA)
"Kim Arestad was a joy to work with, she communicated with us each step of the way and was always helpful and available."
Donald Dewey (Punta Gorda, FL)
"I found our agent to be helpful and proactive in understanding the issues with the house we purchased and had an overall good experience. I found the lawyer and insurance agent very helpful to work with in our transaction."
Miriam Sonia Ikle-Khalsa (Takoma Park, MD)
"As much as we knew who Raveis was, your best asset was/is Kim Arestad. We followed her advice on attorney, and insurance, but already had bank/mortgage set up. Kim was thorough and thoughtful and knew where the bumps might be and we were prepared....she did a wonderful job for us and for Raveis."
Joseph C McCarthy (Norton, MA)
