Testimonials

I highly recommend.

We got a letter from Kim about Dad’s house a few months ago after one of our garage sales. Her son Scott called us back, asked a few questions, looked at our house, and made an offer. My brothers had been trying to fix it up to sell for almost a year . . . that was not going well. We took Scotts offer, he made the process very easy and convenient, we could even sign things via email. We didn’t have to finish cleaning out the house, we didn’t have to make any repairs and no more going to mow the yard.

I highly recommend giving Kim or Scott a call, you will be glad you did.

Fantastic Experience . . .

..Scott was great working me through the entire process. His patience, availability and willingness to answer my questions were greatly appreciated.

Like Doing Business with a Trusted Friend!

From the very beginning, I could tell he (Donald Tucker) was honest. He empathized with what we were going through and how hard it was to let our family home go. He stayed on top of things as they occurred and it felt like doing business with a trusted friend. He was very reassuring and explained every step of the process. Thank you so much.

Fair Price

“We received a fair price for our mother’s house. We were very relieved because we had so much emotional attachment to the house that it would have been hard for us to sell in a typical manner. ” If you are on the fence about selling a house to kcmoHomeBuyer . . .”Do it, you won’t be sorry!”

Glad we Called

We had inherited Mom and Dad’s house a few years ago and had decided to rent it out. But being a landlord was not the best choice for us as it was a never-ending battle to keep it rented, keep the rent coming in and to fix it up every time that didn’t work. We were fed up and ready to be done with the whole situation. We called Scott at kcmoHomeBuyer and he was able to talk us through the situation on the phone, meet us at the house and make us an offer. We didn’t have to fix a thing, he took all the junk the last tenant left, and we closed a couple of weeks later.

STEVEN IN GLADSTONE

Lifted an enormous burden.

Selling the house closed a long chapter in my life and lifted an enormous burden. Every week I spent at the house either cleaning, keeping up on maintenance, or keeping up the lawn. This was in addition to taking care of my own home. Now I have more time to spend with my kids watching their sporting events and more time with my mom!

JIM IN BELTON

I’ll be only too happy to refer you to others.

Thank you, Scott, that house has been a stone around my neck for the past ten months.  I’m so glad that your mom friended me on FB and got things rolling, I’ve had a lot of deaths in my family in the past seventeen months,(my father, my estranged husband, and my only sibling–my brother. I have been swamped trying to deal with it all simultaneously.  You guys took me by the hand and drug me through what needed to be done, and I appreciate that.

CRYSTAL FROM OLATHE

HELPED ME THROUGH THE PROCESS

Words cannot express how Kim’s hard work has affected my family. After a death in my family, I was left with a home out of state that had been abandoned and no banks would even claim the loan! Kim helped me figure out how to determine ownership, what to do about the taxes, and how to clear up the loan status so the property could be sold. She helped me through the process every step of the way, despite my frazzled mindset after losing a loved one. There is no one better, she’s simply the best!
