Kimberlie is an outstanding realtor! We were impressed with her real estate knowledge and expertise in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. She quickly earned our trust and respect. Kimberlie went above and beyond for us to ensure a smooth transaction. Her calm and logical demeanor was exactly what we needed! Kimberlie listed our home on a Friday and by the following Monday we had two offers! It was her advice and recommendations that helped us through this stressful process! We are very fortunate to have found such a great realtor! Lisa and Mike Petruzzi - July 2018
We liked Kimberlie from the first conversation I had with her when we started looking for a home. We weren't even sure exactly where we wanted to live yet. Kimberlie was prepared with a list of homes either within our budget or pretty close and kept our wants in mind. She was knowledgeable about the area and because of that we found the perfect home. She kept in touch with us through the whole process from the offer right through the closing. Kimberlie was very professional and sensitive to all our needs. It was a little scary as we have never been through the purchase of a home so far away from where we were coming from in Kentucky but Kimberlie kept us informed as to what steps we needed to take to finish out the process through the closing. I would recommend Kimberlie to anyone looking to buy a home. She's the best!! Julie and Chuck McMullen July 2018
We live out of state and wanted to sell our home in Bradenton, FL. From the very first interview with Kimberly we knew she was the one we were going to put our trust in. She came prepared, knowledgeable about the area, had already pulled comps for the area, and answered all our questions some even before we knew to ask. The house was empty and she recommended a stager who did an excellent job. There was a light switch that went out and a water leak outside that she made us aware of. She put us in contact with an electrician and a plumber. Both came to the house to repair the issues and she was there to look out for our interests. If you want someone who is there for you every step of the process, Kimberly is the Real Estate Professional you need. From phone calls, text messaging and email, we always knew what was happening with our home. By the way she sold our house in 3 months. Thank you Kimberly, please keep in touch.

I worked with Kimberlie MacDonald of the Joe Murphy Team, and she was fantastic! She quickly understood exactly what we were looking for and only contacted us about properties that really fit our criteria. She was aggressive in negotiating, and her vast contacts helped us on numerous occasions. She was such a pleasure to work with, and was very responsive. We've had some bad experiences in the past with home buying and selling, but Kimberlie made the whole process a pleasure! I highly recommend her if you're buying or selling a home in Sarasota or Manatee County! Jen McGuire 11/2013
We worked with Kimberly Macdonald of the Joe Murphy team to find our new home in Sarasota. Kimberly treated us like family. She is of the utmost integrity and professionalism. She listened to what our needs were and followed through, which in my opinion, is rare these days. We live out of the area, and it was still like we were right there, when working with Kimberly to find this home. I would recommend her to family, friends, anyone who is thinking of moving to the Sarasota Bradenton area. Kim & Jim Lohr 10/2013

Kimberlie MacDonald of the Joe Murphy Team at Coldwell Banker was very helpful in finding our condominium in Bradenton. She listened to our needs and concerns and made sure she presented us with options that met our criteria. The negotiations and ultimately the closing went well and now we have a very comfortable second home. Thank you Kimberlie! Al & Sue Nees 6/2013
5 stars across the board!! My realtor was Kimberlie MacDonald of The Joe Murphy Team and she was absolutely amazing in every aspect of my home buying process. I don't know what I would have done without her (I'd probably still be house searching!!) She responds to my emails immediately, knows the market and always kept me smiling. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I will most definitely be working with Kimberlie in the future and these group of talented individuals will receive all of my referrals. Kimberlie -- Thank you for all of your hard work and patience, you are truly the BEST!!!!! Brittney Selig 6/2013
I am writing this letter to express how thankful my wife and I are to have found Kimberlie MacDonald to represent us in our home purchase. Kimberlie went above and behond with her efforts for us to get everything in order and finalized. Our bank as well as the underwriter turned out to be extremely difficult to work with and had no sense of urgency when necessary. She always answered her phone, e-mails, and text messages. We came within days of losing the house because of time deadlines with the seller. I can honestly say without Kims determination in getting this sale done, the bank and underwriter would have cost us the sale. I cannot express enough how much we highly reccommend Kimberlie MacDonald to anyone purchasing a home. Adam & Tricia Nickerson 06/22/2012
Moved down to FL from MI in August. the transfer was super fast, so very limited on time. Kimberlie was out Agent, and was amazing! She knew we were short on time. Kimberlie was so helpful and in touch with our needs. She understood what we needed, and was able to give us great advise. Extremely knowledgable about the area. With 3 kids, schools were very important. She was able to help direct where to look. Kimberlie and her team where top notch in the industry. I will reccomend them to everyone!!! Kerry & Todd Koehler 9/2012
Kimberlie was absolutely amazing! Not only was she helpful and attentive, she was also conscious of our tastes and needs. I think if you listen & are honest with her about what you want & what your budget is, she WILL find your new home! She is patient and can turn it on when it's business time. Without her I don't know where we would be but it wouldn't be as great as where we are now! She is the Top as Realtor, & now we are proud to call her a true friend. I just can't speak enough to how happy we were with her, our experience & our new home! Anna & John Hussman 4/30/2013
