“One cannot find a better agent than Kim. Kim is the best agent one could ask for. She is smart, knowledgeable, honest, respectful, and hardworking.”
Daniel I. Oshtry, Esq. (Seller)
“Kim Vilov worked tirelessly to help us find a home for the right price. She helped us identify good quality neighborhoods and homes that would fit our lifestyle and needs. She knows what the trends are. With her guidance we learned various negotiating strategies, stayed up late together to put bids in that required days notice, and finally found the house of our dreams!
I would recommend Kim Vilov to all my family and friends!”
Mariana Matias, College Heights Estates, MD (Buyer)
“We met Kim Vilov when she showed us a property in Maryland, back in 2014, when we were first time home buyers. Kim had this great capacity to make us think about things we were not aware of. She was going through forms with us, explaining purpose and considerations of these clearly and in layman's terms, which was so helpful for us at the time, when we simply felt overwhelmed by the sole thought of buying real estate. For these reasons, we wanted Kim to be our agent when we decided to buy another property in 2018. Here again, her communication style worked really well, and we bought a house that perfectly fit our needs. This time, we were selling, so we weren't familiar with the process, but we knew Kim would make it seem so easy. And she did do just that....even through a Pandemic.
We decided to sell in December 2019, and decided then to put our property on the market in April 2020. Little did we know this timing would be one of the most disruptive times (COVID-19). As the pandemic developed, Kim stayed calm and professional, and focused on staying informed while procedures were changing and new forms were coming into play. She offered creative ways to navigate a time in which contact needed to be reduced to a minimum (e.g., 3D video tour). Kim took the new circumstance into consideration to estimate the sale price, and sold our property for a price higher than we had expected, and in the same time frame we would have expected before the pandemic hit. In short, she was expedient, up-to-date, clear, and enjoyable to work with, despite the circumstances.
Kim Vilov is an awesome real estate agent!
We are very satisfied.
Our experience was excellent, despite the COVID-19 circumstances.”
Coline and Keith, Takoma Park, MD (Seller)
“Kim was very polite, patient, approachable since the first meeting. She patiently explained the entire home-buying process and was always one phone call away, weekends and holidays included.”
“From the moment we met Kim we felt comfortable. She was really helpful and patient as we searched for,many homes. She was also very knowledgeable of the process and helped us understand everything every step of the way”
Kevin & Matt Hyattsville MD (Buyer)
“As an attorney practicing estate law for more than 25 years I have worked with many agents. I can state unequivocally that Kim Vilov is the best! Kim is thorough, knowledgeable, respectful and trustworthy.
You can't do better than Kim Vilov. She outperforms any other agent I have ever worked with.”
Daniel I. Oshtry, Esq. (Seller)
“Kim Vilov was a patient and thoughtful broker as I began the process of looking for a home, with a very general understanding of the process. She never made me feel silly for asking basic questions and was extremely timely in responding via text or via email. Her expert and impartial advice helped me feel confident in my home buying choices and I'm not sure I would have gotten across the finish line without her. Thanks, Kim!”
Kathy, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“It has been 20 years since I last bought a home, and much has changed in that time. I went into the process a bit apprehensive and tentative, but Kim Vilov made me feel at ease within minutes of our first meeting. In some ways she understood what I was looking for in a home better than I did, and so her guidance was critical in ultimately landing a great house in Silver Spring. Even after the sale closed Kim has been helpful and communicative, following up on some minor loose ends. I look forward to staying in touch with her and will definitely recommend her to friends and relatives!”
Mark D, Washington DC (Buyer)
“All of our house viewings with Kim were like going with an extremely knowledgeable friend. She made our concerns a priority and she also opened up our eyes to pitfalls we were blind to as first time homeowners. Kim was definitely looking out for our best interest and that was so clear in every way she helped and communicated with us. Kim. Is. The. Best.”
Paula, New Carrollton (Buyer)
“I appreciated that she gently discouraged me from a house that would not have been a good idea.”
Abigail, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“Kim Vilov is an excellent agent. She is intelligent, hardworking and completely trustworthy.
This transaction involved several difficulties and Kim Vilov successfully resolved all of them. Tremendous job!”
Daniel Oshtry, Washington DC (Seller)
“Kim was an absolute joy to work with. We honestly thought this would be a very long, very difficult process (as two architects, we had more than a few opinions about our future home!) Kim instantly understood what we were looking for - and was flexible when our priorities began to shift. She was always very thoughtful, whether it be carefully considering which properties to suggest or presenting all sides of an issue to allow us the space to make our own, informed decisions. She was incredibly patient and prompt and she constantly went out of her way to ensure our questions were thoroughly answered. We would (and already have!) recommended Kim to anyone thinking of buying a a new home.”
Lindsay & Scott, Washington DC (Buyer)
“Kim Vilov understood and respected our needs and wants for real estate. She has a great understanding of the area and the sale process and we could tell she had our best interest in mind. It was a pleasure working with her and thanks to her, we found the home we were looking for.
I would recommend Kim Vilov because of her knowledge, professionalism, positive communication and her promptness throughout the process.”
Coline and Keith, Takoma Park (Buyer)
“Kim Vilov is an absolutely superb agent to work with. She has helped my wife and me find a place in central DC. This was the first time that we were buying and searching for a place. Kim effortlessly introduced us to the process and helped us figure out what the best place for us would be, given our constraints. Then, she showed great adaptability in scheduling visits and making sure that we see all the possible options. Having settled on a place, she made sure that all the paperwork was in order and that final closing procedure was a breeze. ”
Srdjan Marinovic, DC (Buyer)
“Kim Vilov came highly recommended by a fellow Century 21 agent used by out-of-town relatives and it quickly became clear why. She was extremely patient and positive even when I had moments of doubt or was convinced there would be nothing in my price range that I liked. In the end, she knew my criteria so well that she even suggested an open house somewhere more promising (that I ended up taking and loving!) when I had been ready to make an offer on another place that very day. She did more than add me to a listings search; she previewed places, checked in regularly, and followed up without failure. With all the deadlines, paperwork, and boxes to be checked, I never worried that anything would slip through the cracks from open house to closing.
Buying a home for the first time is a truly life-changing experience and, with Kim, I feel I had the best person to shepherd me along the way in this market. It felt like she personally cared as much about the decision as I did. When I took the Framework online home ownership course, I quickly realized I had already learned everything through the process of purchasing my first home through Kim. I'd recommend her to anyone in the area without hesitation.”
Lisa N., Washington, DC (Buyer)
“Kim was a delight to work with. She was an outstanding advocate for us as buyers and made the whole process much easier than we expected. Kim was a diligent and knowledgeable advocate throughout the process. As first time home buyers, we had many questions. Kim answered all our questions promptly with professionalism and patience. Kim's depth of knowledge is impressive, she always provided all the information we needed to make the correct decision for our family. We would emphatically recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house, particularly first-time buyers.
Stephanie and Shelby, Cheverly MD (Buyer)
“Kim Vilov worked hard to sell apartment from holding open houses and following up on leads, There was no passivity or sense that she was just sitting back and hoped that it sold.
Kim Vilov staged apartment in an eye-catching way that was not like every other apartment at the same price.
Kim Vilov is knowledgeable about the area, pays attention to details, has professional sense of marketing. She staged and priced apartment so that it would sell quickly. Her predictions about the sale of other units in zip code were stunningly accurate.
Julie Corwin, Washington, DC (Seller)
“This was my first home purchase and I was apprehensive about all the things that could go wrong. Kim Vilov made the entire process extremely easy. She answered all of our questions, addressed any concerns we might have had and walked us through everything, telling us what to expect at each stage of the process.
She is very extremely conscientious, knowledgeable, patient, understanding, professional and completely understands the process.
Kim took the time to understand our needs and preferences, and knew our taste levels and what we would like. We found the perfect house and closed within a month of making the offer. Everything went incredibly smoothly.
I could not have asked for a better agent.
Karen Jabo, Silver Spring (Buyer)
“Kim was very knowledgeable, was always timely in her communications, and excelled at problem-solving. She made insightful recommendations and was very flexible and attentive to my needs. The sale of my house was very low stress, went very smoothly and I was very happy with the outcome, all due to Kim's commitment and effort. I recommend her highly.
Kevin Kerr, Silver Spring (Seller)
“I've been recommending Kim Vilov to all my friends who are looking for a home here in DC. Having dealt with other relaters in the past, I can say that Kim is beyond any expectations. She anticipated all my concerns and needs. She turned into a wonderful experience the process of looking for and purchasing a home. She is simply superb.”
Lidia, DC (Buyer)
“I approached Kim Vilov knowing little about the process and hoping someone could give me background. She was incredibly patient and was willing to spend a lot of time explaining things to me without any clear indication I was close to buying. She helped me get past thinking about buying to seriously looking (and purchasing!).
Kim always struck the right balance of advising without pushing. It felt like she was a friend who was helping me to find what was the right place for me.”
Nick, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“I'm very satisfied with the excellent work Kim Vilov did on the sale of my house. The house was staged and priced to sell and it did in a very timely manner and over the asking price in a very efficient way. Kim Vilov suggested and offered a marketing plan based on realistic facts about the area, the property, and my needs. She did an excellent advertising campaign online (write-up, pictures, video), in paper (brochures), and with the yard sign. We had offers on the house as soon as the yard sign was placed in the property. More offers followed as soon as Kim Vilov posted online for other realtors to see and before it went "public." Kim Vilov is very professional and always accessible. She made me and my pets feel like her family/friends. Kim Vilov was always very friendly and polite with my neighbors, which made her know the neighborhood even better. Kim Vilov was always very considerate of prospective buyers and treated them in a way that they felt welcome to the house. Kim Vilov took the time to explain every aspect of the contracts during the entire process of selling my house. Based on my experience, I highly recommend Kim Vilov and CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty (Washington, DC) to sell your property.”
Maria I. Rodriguez (Hyattsville, MD) (Seller)
“Kim Vilov is a fantastic realtor and I could not have had a better experience. Everyone told me how rough the process of purchasing my first home would be, but she made it painless. She kept on top of all the various deadlines and communicated well at all stages. I always felt like I was in good hands and she really protected me and advised me well on the house, my loan, my insurance... and my sanity. I would recommend her to anyone, but especially to first time buyers who need some hand holding. She really looked out for me. ”
Camille Bryan, Washington DC (Buyer)
