I asked Kim to sell my property on Wilgus Cemetery in January. She put the home on the market and within 3 days I had a full price offer. If you are looking to buy or sale, Kim is the person to call. She knows the area like the back of her hand. I would recommend Kim Hook with everything I have!!

Kim was wonderful to work with. She is one of the most experienced beach realtors in the area. Kim was very responsive to all our needs. I would highly recommend Kim Hook.

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.
- Rick Eakle

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 has great knowledge of the Bethany Beach real estate market. She helped us decide on a sales price, marketed our home, & facilitated our negotiating with the buyer in a timely & professional manner. Kim is a very good listener and communicator; she has a lovely easy going personality but can dig deep when necessary. Her office staff is wonderful. We worked mostly with Kim and Ricky and felt like we received very personal attention from them. I highly recommend Kim!!!

Kim and her staff are the best. They know their stuff. They were great.
- Patricia Cooper
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.
Kim is an excellent communicator with all the answers. She was always available for answering questions and concerns regarding our sale as well as settlement. Kim knows marketing and priced our house right in the ballpark. Either she or her staff informed us every time our home was to be visited and followed up with feedback of the visit.
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
There were many complications in trying to sell our home, none that are attributed to Kim. If anything, she kept my husband and I calm and confident that she would sell the home AND DID! Through it all, Kim’s office and staff were professional, reassuring and ALWAYS available when necessary. I would recommend Kim Simpler to anyone serious in selling their whatever. Settlement was also done well and handled efficiently.
- Marie Traska
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
If you want to list and SELL your property, Kim Hook must be your agent. She and her staff were fantastic. She knows the Fenwick Island area, because she lives here…she knows everyone. Kim recommended the selling price that would sell…we had a contract within 2 weeks of the listing. Kim and her staff were very responsive as we were living in South Carolina. She kept us in touch from a distance via Phone, text or email. She coordinated the settlement via electronic signature.
- Steve Drescher
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.
- Joe Marra
Kim is an excellent and knowledgeable realtor who did a wonderful job selling our beach house. Her team kept us up to date and informed on all aspects. Settlement was smooth and went on without a hitch. Thanks Kim and Tara, you all did a great job.
- Mickey Matthews
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!
- Jim and Debi Stuart
I can’t say enough good things about our experiences with Kim. There is a reason why she is so successful. She has everything you want in a realtor. She knows her market inside and out, is a good negotiator, has strong relationships in market, is available and accessible, markets aggressively and strategically, has very good people skills, thinks ahead and anticipates issues that could arise, thinks about your needs and puts herself in your shoes, has a great team working with her that is extremely responsive and professional and always does what she says she is going to do with precision and care. Kim not only helped us purchase our home, but she also sold our existing home which allowed us to make the purchase (in 3 weeks nonetheless!). I am very picky about the people I work with and I can say, without hesitation that Kim will not disappoint. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a coastal (or any) home. Thanks Kim!
- Anthony & Kathryn Applewhaite
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
Kim recently handled the sale of our West Fenwick home and did an excellent job. She kept an eye on our home when we weren’t there, made sure that the info box was always full of flyers, checked to make sure that other agents locked up and turned off the lights when they showed the property to their clients, and provided us with good ideas to help market the property. The coastal resort market in Delaware/Maryland is very different from the metropolitan markets around DC and Baltimore, and it helps to have someone who knows and understand those differences. Kim knows the resort markets far better than most, and she has an excellent office assistant (Tara) who stays on top of the details. We would have no hesitation using her again and would recommend her to others.
- Dennis and Sharon Johnson
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
Kim is a very professional real estate agent and knows her market well. She is extremely accessible and will call you back promptly once she is able. She also helps with recommendations for various things that you may need help on. Her office staff is able to handle the coordination of everything needed to be completed for the closing of a contract. I found that working with Kim made the entire experience a very positive one. I highly recommend her as your real estate agent.
- Rona Reis

I would absolutely 100% recommend Kim Hook. She was professional, honest and involved during the sale of our beach home. She was always in communication with us. We received insight and encouragement Throughout the entire process. Our house sold quickly. It was so helpful that we always knew about each showing that came through the house and she gave us feedback, suggestions and comments. Working with her was a real pleasure. Thank you so much Kim!

Worked with Kim to list and sell a vacation home this year..Throughout the entire process of listing and selling, Kim provided consistent and professional services. She is very knowledgeable, kind, patient. She was very easy to work with and helped to ensure the selling process was completed in a timely manner. I highly recommend her services.
- Susan Riley
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
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.
