Summer 2017, Kim Hook and her team helped my wife and I purchase a beach house on Fenwick Island in Delaware. Her service was absolutely second to none. She was friendly and knowledgeable from the start, and quickly became a trusted resource for all things house, beach, and Delaware related. She has even offered us advice post-sale on service and maintenance providers, which has been a huge help. The entire process was a 5-star experience for us, for sure. High recommended.
We found Kim and all her associates very responsive with all our questions. They took care of the details for buying our home, and kept us informed at all times. We found that everyone we dealt with truly did there jobs. This was a great experience.

My wife and I were out on a cloudy day just browsing for our dream house at the beach when we stumbled upon a house listed by Kim. The house needed some work but we instantly fell in love with it as we saw the potential it had but the price was a stretch in our budget. I called Kim and explained my situation to her and after a couple of weeks of working on a way to come up with the money Kim was able to present my offer in such a professional and caring manner the sellers agreed to our proposal and 30 days later we owned our dream home. I highly recommend Kim Hook for all of your Real Estate needs.

Kim was always responsive to any requests, she said she would sell the house & she did at a very fair price. Her support staff is excellent and made settlement very smooth doing all the legwork on utilities as allowed. Again was very good at communicating things from settlement attorney that was great! Kind of double check but over & above what I expected. House pictures were great, we actually liked her virtual tour, thought it was done very well!
We have used Kim for a number of real estate transactions over the past 10 years in the Bethany/Fenwick area, both purchase and sales. She has great knowledge and experience in the local market and is always spot on with setting prices that will sell and on what to offer for a purchase. Kim and her staff are very accessible and responsive, actively listening to your needs and not just showing you anything that is available. They make the process very easy and are extremely accommodating to those who are making transactions remotely, as we were at times. Kim is very personable and we have enjoyed working with her each time. We would highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs at the DE shore!

We were extremely pleased with Kim’s service. We met Kim eight years ago when she helped us with a market evaluation of a property my family was selling (it ended up being a private sale), and she impressed us immensely. She was the first realtor that we called this year when we were looking to purchase a lot in Sussex County to build our future retirement home. It’s obvious that Kim is very knowledgeable of the local market. She gave us excellent advice, responded quickly to any inquiries, and always kept “a close watch” on our interests during the final negotiations, soil inspection/site evaluation, and transaction.

Kim is extremely knowledgeable about local beach neighborhoods and the properties in them. She is also well known to those seeking new homes in the area and bought us a buyer very quickly after listing with her.
– Ben Waide
Thanks for all you did to make this possible. You spent the time and asked questions to know exactly what we were looking for. Just think, this unit wasn't on my list! Yet you knew it had the potential to be the right one.
We spent a beautiful evening in "our" new home. It is perfect. Thank you again.
-Nacee and Norm Watson
My wife and I have had seven real estate transactions in the Bethany Beach/ Fenwick Island area since 1987, the most recent in 2014. Kim has made each of these transactions a financial and personal success. She is extremely knowledgeable, and eager to get the best deal for her clients. I believe she is the best agent to partner with when buying or selling a property. I recommend her with no reservations.
– Mike Mooney
Working with Kim Hook was a very positive experience. She appreciated the value of our home and readily conveyed that to potential buyers. Throughout the process of marketing and selling our home, Kim always was attentive and very responsive to our needs. The entire experience was absolutely positive. We would highly recommend Kim, and are most appreciative of her diligence and professionalism. Anyone would be lucky to have a realtor like Kim.
Kim is an expert, honest and sincere Realtor. She knows the market very well. She is a very principled person, who always does the right thing and helps the buyer as well as the seller. She also produces very fast results as a result of her knowledge.
– Florence and Vincent Marino
Kim Hook is by far the best realtor with whom we have ever worked. We have purchased and sold 7 homes, working with a multitude of realtors. Kim is heads and shoulders above all others. She was efficient, responsive, accommodating and never pushy. We truly felt that she had our best interests at heart. She took the time to filter the homes to try to accommodate all our needs. And the best part about working with Kim, is that she has a great sense of humor too. Her hard work, dedication and expertise was very refreshing and make the experience fun. We have very high standards when it comes to realtors. Kim met and exceeded those standards.
-Bill & Diane Balderson
Kim is the best!!!! I have known Kim for a long time and knew that is I sold property she would be the one to do it! Best agent I know in the local area and was extremely pleased with everything she did for me in our business venture. She is the agent I would always recommend. Thanks Kim.
– Connie Cooper
We were new to the Bethany real estate market and Kim fulfilled all of our needs. She was extremely knowledgeable, provided a ton of information and also gave us our space, didn’t push us to do anything. With her help, we purchased a home within a few months. We would highlight recommend her!
Kim ran a most professional selling process, beginning with a strong knowledge of the area market and marketable pricing. Her well-thought out approach to advertising in key markets and consistent promotion of our home resulted in the sale. Her staff follows her lead...very conscientious, personable, and attentive to details. We would work with Kim again.
- Bill Dowdell
If you are looking for a GREAT realtor, I would strongly recommend Kim Hook. No pressure, just provided us with great information about the area. Kim took care of everything during the sales process and even continued to help us after the sale with local contacts. Because of Kim, buying our beach house was an easy and pleasant experience. I strongly recommend you contact her.
Kim is awesome. She responded immediately to our email and request to see property. She is an area native and very knowledgable of the area, real estate trends and issues. She continues to provide info on new properties!
Thank you for all your advice and hard work selling my father's home. He told me how much effort you put into ensuring the last items were removed and helping him. I had hoped to assist him more personally but did not expect to be about to deliver a baby when the home closed. You did a super job marketing and listing but really went above and beyond helping him remove the last items. You came highly recommended and we can see why. Thank you.
– Kelly McDonald
Kim was a wonderful agent. She was very patient during our year long search for a vacation home. We never felt pressured to make a decision and she was always took the time to answer all of our questions. Kim worked hard to find a home that matched our "wish list". We enjoyed our home search adventures and would recommend Kim to anyone in need of Real Estate services.
Kim knows the Delaware beach real estate market as well as anyone. There were no surprises from the beginning introduction all the way to closing. Our experience selling our beach house with Kim and her associate Tara was seamless, efficient, and a pleasure to work with.
Kim is very professional and in full command of the sales process. She is able to anticipate issues and prevent them before they occur. I highly recommend her.
Kim is the ultimate professional. She has a unique understanding of buyers and sellers needs, and respective market opportunities. She also has a keen insight into how to market and change marketing techniques for all types of properties. There isn't a question that is asked that Kim does not have an answer for. Once a property is listed with Kim, she keeps sellers constantly apprised of potential selling opportunities; and if you are a potential buyer, Kim possesses both a thorough area and property knowledge that will certainly help buyers to make the right choice. And if Kim is with a customer when you happen to contact her, her associate Tara is just as competent and knowledge as Kim. Together they make, in my opinion, the best team on the shore. If you want to sell your property or you are looking to buy, I would highly recommend Kim.
I had a wonderful experience with Kim. Kim made the process of buying a house enjoyable. She found the house that fitted me and my financial needs. She was very informative and made me feel comfortable throughout the long process of purchasing a home. I recommend Kim in the future for anyone! Big or small Kim will find the house of your dreams!
Kim is an excellent realtor. She's patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. She's not afraid to direct you in a direction that you may not normally take; however, the outcome of the trip is well worth the ride. She was always there when we needed her and she made sure that we saw the properties that we needed to see. Upon closing the deal, Kim was highly efficient and paid attention to the details and in doing so saved us some money. We highly recommend Kim!
– Andrew Jansen
Kim is an awesome agent. She has complete knowledge of the Delaware Beach area and with our 20+ years of experience, she truely knows what she is doing. We have had multiple transactions with her and will continue to do so!!!
Kim was great to work with and so knowledgeable of the area. Her market researched helped to determine a good sales price for our home based on a realistic assessment of comps. She was always responsive to our calls especially during the settlement process. We would definitely use her again if we need to sell.
– The Dowlings
It looks like you really have us out there with internet exposure. Seems like we get a lot of lookers with some coming back and looking at details. I just clicked on the tour of this one and I was blown away by it--really nice. Bruce and I sure are happy that we’re back with you. I think you’re going to find us a buyer. Great work!
Kim is an excellent agent. We had an issue with the town and a previous variance and Kim handled it professionally and did everything she could to resolve the issue. I would highly recommend Kim.
– The Paoli’s
Thank you for the wonderful job you have done for us. Somehow your listings do get sold and that is what all sellers want. You must be a magnet for buyers or have some magical power to attract the right buyer for us.
The timing seems just right which makes it even more a mystery of how it happens that way. This is the second time you have accomplished the perfect happening for us, thank you. We received the signed contract in the mail today and will drop off the info for the settlement to you in the next few days.
Thank you again for our 50th wedding anniversary gift, the sale of our home.
Your friends and clients,
- Jim and Diana
Very responsive, very knowledgeable, very friendly !!!! Kim also has a lot of contacts that can assist on once you have purchased your house; I.E. - painters, landscapers, various contractors, etc.
Just got internet and the first thing I wanted to do was THANK YOU for ALL you did to make this happen. I love my new home!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! Stop in anytime!!
We knew we would list our home with Kim Hook. We noticed that when we walked around our neighborhood that most of the signs were hers and knew from talking to the buyers and sellers that they were well pleased with Kim. We have know Kim for several years and our experience with listing our home with her was a positive choice for us. Kim knows the area, she is very thorough in explaining each step and we felt we were given all of the information we needed to have a successful transaction. We highly recommend Kim for any real estate needs.
– Dorie and John Skinkus
We were extremely pleased with the service that you provided for the sale of our beach house last week. Kevin, Jennifer, Carolee and I believe that if we had listed with you last year and priced the house better than we did in 2007, we may have sold our beach house last year at a better price than we we were able to get in these hard home sale times. We will never know, but we remain convinced that we finally made the right selection in choosing you as our agent.
Thank you for your help. It has been a pleasure working with you. We hope that the market improves and your sales reach the top notch level that you hope for and deserve.
- Lee Kirk Botts
Kim has been our agent for over 20 years, representing us in both the buying and selling of properties. She knows the real estate market and she has always provided an honest evaluation of the property of interest. When selling she has always utilized an aggressive marketing strategy that has worked extremely well for us. Kim also has kept us informed of the progress once the contract is in the hands of the lawyer. Bottom line is we have the option to use any Real Estate Agent around and for over 20 years we have only called Kim Hook. If you want an Broker that is Professional, Honest, and Produces Results call Kim.
– Dean Esham
Dear Kim and Tara,
We believe that the sale of 419 Lekites Avenue is complete (funds are in the bank and final settlement papers have been received.) Your professionalism and efforts have been much appreciated, including your attentiveness to small details, as well as the overall strategy. We realize that a "perfect world" would have resulted in a higher price and more immediate sale; but the world is not perfect and your continuing efforts generated action that produced an acceptable conclusion.
Perhaps we will be back to Bethany Beach in search of a smaller "vacation home", and we will certainly call on you.
