Testimonials for Kimberly Southern


Client Testimonials



"Kimberly is a new friend. She went far above and beyond what would be expected of an agent. everything was smooth and that is completely Kimberly's doings! Thanks for everything!" O'Neill's


"We dealt with Kim Southern when we were looking to and eventually purchasing our cabin. We wouldn't consider using anyone but her. She worked diligently for 3+ months to find the owner of the lot without giving up. We would and do definitely recommend her to family and friends.

With us not knowing what was a fair offer for the lot, Kim researched the average selling price for us for that size lot. She then gave us all the information to help us make an informed decision on an offer. Once we decided on a price, she contacted the seller with our offer. She set up the closing date with ours and the seller's convenience in mind. 

Kim has all the above mentioned qualities. She is very knowledgeable about the area and our gated community. When we purchased our cabin last year, she was very helpful in recommending local places including furniture stores, restaurants, etc. She also told us about local festivities and festivals. As far as the purchase of the new lot, she has recommended a Surveyor to survey the lots into one. She is very friendly, respectful, and courteous to her clients. She truly cares about them. She gave us a house warming gift when we purchased our cabin. This touched us on a professional and personal level. As far as being trustworthy, we trust her with everything in our hearts. 

We wouldn't consider using anyone else for our needs pertaining to Real Estate."

Bill and Julie Bancroft
"Kim Southern came highly recommended by a friend. We couldn't be happier with her help and her professionalism! She was always available, and was so helpful. As out of town clients, it was important for us to find an agent who would keep an eye on our property and help us when repairs or other concerns needed to be met. Kim did that, checking on the property periodically and staying in touch with us constantly about things that needed to be done.

Kim was TOTALLY attentive to our needs as out of town clients. She responded quickly when we had questions. She met with us and gave us advice even BEFORE we listed our house with her, and we were tied to another agent. "  Joe and Kaye
"My husband and I enjoyed working with Kim Southern and will recommend her to anyone that we talk to about our real estate experience in the future! 
She worked tirelessly to make sure we had a great experience from the first showings to the closing and beyond. I feel as though I have gained a friend in the process. She was such a pleasure to work with. If in the future our real estate needs should change and we decide to " upgrade " to a bigger home, we will be trusting Kim to not only sell our home but find the perfect one for us."
From Scott and Jean Link
Client Testimonials
"For anyone looking to purchase or sell a home Kim Southern would be the best you could get. I have worked with her on both purchases and sales and she was fantastic on both sides. I have bought and sold many many homes in my 73 years and no Realtor even came close to Kim Southern."  
"Enjoyed working with Kim on both occasions" Phil Clark
"Kim was the perfect agent for us!"
Kim was the perfect agent for us! She understood what we were interested in and found properties that fit our needs and wants. She pointed out many things that we might have overlooked that we needed to consider during this process. Kim responded to emails, phone calls and text messages in a timely and professional manner. I felt lucky to have her and respected her input greatly. We are so happy with the property she found for us!! I highly recommend her!

"It was a pleasure to actually talk to salespeople who listened to us and understood our goals."   

Hi Dawn & Kim!


Tina and I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we thoroughly enjoyed meeting and doing business with both of you. It was a pleasure to actually talk to salespeople who listened to us and understood our goals. From when we first jotted down our "wish list" until we signed the closing documents, it was evident that we were dealing with professionals of uncompromising integrity who worked for us, not themselves.


We particularly enjoyed the time you took to familiarize us with the area since we were from out of state. The thought and unbiased opinion you expressed helped us determine where to purchase our dream lot.


A special thanks is in order for all the pre-settlement communication. We were a little concerned about executing documents in absentia, but your experience and care laid our worries to rest. We truly were treated to "Southern Hospitality."


Many thanks, see you in the mountains!



Bob and Tina




Kim...You are the best!

 Flowers_2.jpgThey say a picture paints a thousand words...Here are the beautiful flowers we received as a gesture of appreciation from two of our incredible customers after a closing we had last week.  

It was such a lovely surprise to get these Flowers.jpgroses. We don't do this for the glory (God knows!!), but it is so heartwarming to 'feel the love' like this!

Thanks Jim & Maria! We are so happy to have helped make your dream come true!



"The two of you are an amazing team and complement each other well. Your dedication as Real Estate Professionals shone through, as well as your diligence, thoroughness, and patience."



Dear Dawn & Kim,

Michele and I have been working so hard on the cabin, we’ve not taken the time to thank you two for all the hard work you put in to assist us with the purchase of our vacation home.

We made the decision in the winter of 2008 to look for a suitable location for a home in North Georgia. We started the process by identifying Real Estate Professionals that we felt would be easy to work with and who had knowledge of the area well enough to guide us during our hunt.

It is our belief that you two are by far the best Real Estate Professionals we could have hoped to find! Once contacted, you went to work locating numerous properties that met our criteria. It was easy to see how hard you both worked to help us as we examined the information you sent concerning properties of interest before our drive north. The two of you are an amazing team and complement each other well. Your dedication as Real Estate Professionals shone through, as well as your diligence, thoroughness, and patience.

Buying this home was a unique experience for us and it was a pleasure, in large part thanks to your team. You followed through with each and every opportunity given to you, even by recommending a closing attorney who handled us with expert care. It is our opinion that someone looking for property would be well served to have your "Southern Team" work with them.

Thank you for being a friend as well as a professional and please feel free to use us, and this letter, as a reference.


Frank & Michele S.

"...we were most impressed with the service you provided after the sale!"
Dawn and Kim,
Thank you both for your help to find a house in the mountains with the view we wanted! We were impressed you listened and helped us find what we wanted; we were more impressed you were able to take care of the details necessary to close within a week of our contract being accepted; we were most impressed with the service you provided after the sale!
I would recommend your team to anyone looking to buy in the North Georgia Mountains!!!
Thank you!
Larry and Catherine S.

"I always felt like Kim & Dawn's most important client."


I recently had the pleasure of working with Kimberly Southern and Dawn McGuire who represented me in the sale of my home. I was so pleased with how they managed the process that I felt compelled to write this unsolicited client endorsement. Upon meeting them, I was immediately impressed by their real estate acumen and knowledge of the local market.  They were very well organized and sprung into action, assessing my needs and formulating an aggressive plan that they executed flawlessly. 
From our first meeting until the completion of the transaction, I always felt like Kim & Dawn’s most important client. I’ve had dealings with a variety of real estate professionals, and have found this team’s responsiveness and accessibility to be unparalleled. They were highly proactive every step of the way, repeatedly going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure a successful sale. My particular circumstances were extenuating and warranted prompt action, and they delivered. Both Kim & Dawn have far exceeded my expectations, and if you are lucky enough to have a real estate need in a region they serve, I wholeheartedly recommend you employ their services.

"You guys rock!!"
Before meeting Dawn my house was on the market with hardly any traffic for over a year. But in less than 90 days after signing with the Southern Team, in a very slow market I was able to sell my home for a fair price and move on.
I can't say enough about them! They were always available and attentive to my needs and supported me all the way.
You Guys Rock!

"I had the good fortune of having the best realtor in town working on my side. Your marketing plan and realistic assessments of value made the difference."
Dear Kim –
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your help in not only finding my home in the mountains, but later selling it when life threw me an unexpected curve. My job brought me to the scenic North Georgia Mountains. I didn’t know anyone in Ellijay and was lucky to be referred to you by chance. Little did I know what a great stroke of good fortune that would be for me. You patiently showed me house after house while I tried to figure out what I was looking for in a housing market much different than I was used to.  We laughed along the way and you introduced me to great restaurants (I will always be a fan of the Chicken Salad at Merciers) and neat people. Complicating my search was the fact that I was living in another city hours away and had to schedule marathon long house searching trips. You were so patient, always returned my phone calls and answered all of my questions. I think you became a technology expert during my search from all of the digital pictures and listings that you and I emailed during the house hunting! You even managed to find bears, turkeys and deer along the way to make me quickly realize that I wasn’t in the city any more!
Looking back on the search, I think you knew better than me what I needed. In fact, I remember your email to me one day that you had previewed my future house that afternoon. And of course – you were right. You found me a beautiful log home on the river that was the picture of tranquility. I loved it. I settled quickly into that house and made it my own. Many wonderful memories were made there with a home full of friends and family. But only eighteen months later, life threw me an unexpected curve when my job moved me a thousand miles away to Texas.
Upon getting the news of my transfer, my first reaction was to call you!! Even though my move was several months away, I expected a tough time in trying to sell my house in the middle of one of the worst real estate markets in decades. I had nightmares of how difficult it might be. But I shouldn’t have worried. Three weeks later, the third person to look at my house bought it in a cash sale! Once again, I had the good fortune of having the best realtor in town working on my side. Your marketing plan and realistic assessments of value made the difference. The virtual tour was the best that I have seen. Your hard work was evident. The sale of my house in Ellijay was the sixth home I have sold and it was the easiest deal of them all. You helped me set up a smooth transition for my move west.
During the time I have lived in Ellijay, it was my pleasure to get to know you and your family. You and your husband took me to dinner my first night in town and we have since become good friends. It has been a pleasure to know that I really could mix friendship with business. My only regret in this whole experience is that you aren’t licensed to sell real estate in Texas! If you were, I would put you on a plane and have you help me find house number seven in the lone star state. When I look back at my time in the mountains, I will always remember my warm welcome made full with “Southern Hospitality!”
                                                                                    Thanks for everything,
                                                                                    Mike B
"Kim is a very dependable and trustworthy realtor and a person of high ethical values."
We first met Kim a few years ago when we purchased our second piece of property in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains! We had already owned a 3 acre parcel in Blairsville, but not only couldn’t we get our previous realtor to call us back, we could hardly get anyone to return a message or answer our questions. We finally stumbled across Kim Southern via her website and when we called, she actually answered her phone.
During our first conversation with her, we developed quite a bond. She was very nice to talk to and extremely helpful. It was obvious that she was very familiar with the North Georgia area. In our subsequent conversations, we developed a trust and a relationship with Kim that we had not previously experienced with other realtors.
When we finally went to Georgia to meet with her (we are from Florida), we tied her up all weekend long. She showed us everything we had spoken about and more. We decided on a piece of property in Ellijay and had her sell our land in Blairsville. We knew from our meetings that Kim is a very dependable and trustworthy realtor and a person of high ethical values. Although she did not make much money from our sale or purchase of land, she continually treated us as if we were very important clients.
After the sale, we began to build a cabin in Ellijay. Kim would voluntarily check on our property while we were building our cabin. Being 700 miles away, this was very much appreciated. She would constantly keep in touch with us and became our ‘eyes & ears’ in Georgia.
We have since become good friends with Kim and her family and look forward to visiting whenever possible. I would sincerely recommend Kimberly Southern as a realtor that you can count on! She’s the best!

 "...with Kim's never-ending perservence, we finally found the right one."
 Hi Kim-
When we decided to change our life direction, we never dreamed we'd find such a wonderful Realtor - & Friend - in Kim Southern!  We purchased a couple alpacas to diversify our portfolio.  Being an animal lover, I got tired of agisting them at someone else's farm.  So I began looking for property to bring us all together.  I searched the internet, newspapers & those little real estate books.  I ran countless hours to "drive-by" the outside before I called my current at the time realtor, (not Kim), because she was too busy with her life to take me.
My husband happened across a property in the North GA Mountains...I called to set up a viewing with the listing agent which turned out to be Kim.  I got lost on my way there, & unable to call Kim because my cell phone didn't work in that area, I had to find a pay phone.  Kim just laughed & told me she'd see me when I got there.  An hour later, I finally made it! 
Turns out that property wasn't right for us...but with Kim's never-ending perseverance, we finally found the right one.  Kim worked with us for nearly 2 years, looking at different properties in at least 8 counties, researching county ordinances, scouring the internet listings, even taking pictures of places that hadn't made it to the internet yet!  She made this exhausting adventure a reality for us.  She was always happy & eager to get out to walk the numerous acres with us...she knew if the land wasn't right, the house didn't & go next.
To say Kim is just our Realtor would be an understatement.  Throughout this entire process, Kim became our friend as well!  My husband used to joke with me about who was I going to talk to after we finally closed on our house?  Little did he know...!
When we outgrow our new alpaca ranch, Kim will be the lady we'll call to help us take the next step, even if we have to get her licensed in another state!  I recommend her highly to anyone who wants to find that perfect place to call home.  I have confidence she will do everything in her power to get you to where you want to be.
Thank you, Kim, for everything you have done for us.  You have been a very big part in making Circle C Alpacas what we are today.  We wish you all the best!
Tom & Lisa



"...your website, local marketing techniques, and knowledge of the market all contributed to this quick sale."
Dear Kim,
We want to thank you for the excellent work and energy you demonstrated on sale of our cabin in Cherry Log.  Obviously, this is a buyers market with an abundance of cabins for sale in the North Georgia market; however, you were able to sell our property in less than 8 weeks! Something we did not think could happen.  I feel your website, local marketing techniques, and knowledge of the market all contributed to this quick sale. However, I feel your dedication and personal involvement with your clients was the part that made this transaction and our partnership a success.
We sincerely enjoyed working with you and Century 21 Realty.  You displayed great professionalism at each step on this process. Your guidance and recommendations were always accurate and lead to a positive and successful association. If I can ever serve as a recommendation for you in the future, please advise, as it will be a great pleasure to recommend such a professional and ethical Real Estate person. Thank you, again, for all your efforts and dedication in selling our property.
Best Regards,
David & Tricia



"Your professionalism and warm personality are a pleasure in a world of turmoil."
Dear Kim,
Please accept my deepest appreciation for all the creative and time-consuming work you did to sell my cabin in Morganton, GA.  You worked hard, and it showed.  In an area where log cabins are so abundant, you helped mine stand out among the others.  With good pricing and fabulous advertising (the virtual tour was awesome), it sold quickly.
As you recall, the buyer could only give me 30 days to find a new home, pack and move.  You managed to set up both closings on the same day!  We went from cabin to closing, moving, to the closing of the new house and in the new house within 12 hours!!!!  What a day!!!
Your professionalism and warm personality are a pleasure in a world in turmoil.  Your goal, “I just want everyone to be happy,” is a not only said but acted out in a way that makes you unique.  It was definitely my fortune to have been referred to you.  I have and will continue to refer you to others.
Thank you again for all your great effort.



"We love your creative, sensible, thorough and willing approach to real estate..."
Dear Kimberly:
It is the time of year to remember all the things we are thankful for and you are at the top of the list.  I remember during the anticipating days and weeks after you listed our home in Ellijay.  One Realtor had already "fired" us as a customer saying we were too fussy about our pictures. 
One thing about you Kim, is you don't let hurdles get in your way.  I recall the day when you told me you and your husband were going to rent a scissor lift so you could get spectacular photos of our "up hill" mountain home that was sooooo hard to photograph.  Needless to say between your "beyond the call of duty effort " in the beginning and at contract we were happy to see the house sold and move on to our new life. 
We love your creative, sensible, thorough and willing approach to real estate and believe you will have a long line of people waiting for your services at any time of the year. If you need to have a prospective client call us we are more than willing to share the good news. May all be returned to you and more this coming year. 
Best regards,
James and Glenda
