Kim Van Horn
When I moved to the Triangle area 13 years ago, I didn’t know anyone here and I had never been here before, and though I tried using several different real estate agents, I did not find them very helpful. No agent would show me more than one city!  And no one would explain the differences between the areas (Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Apex) to me, which was what I needed to know the most!

Now that I am a real estate agent, I make that my top priority.  I specialize in helping people moving here understand the characteristics of each area, so that they can pick the town and neighborhood where they will be happiest.

I moved here from Washington DC, where I first worked on Capitol Hill as a press secretary, then became a marketing manager for high tech and telecom companies.  I bring solid experience brokering deals and managing projects to the job of being a real estate agent.  I have now been an agent for 11 years, and I do love my job – it’s the easiest thing in the world for me to explain why most people will have a better quality of life here.  So if you are considering a move to the Triangle, please request a relocation package from me, and if you have a visit planned, please let me show you around.

Customer Reviews

"Excellent. Best agent I have ever worked with!!"  The Dulbergs, Durham

“Kim is a phenomenal real estate agent. She was always available and helpful, and we knew that we could trust her throughout the process to be our advocate. She was knowledgeable, thorough, meticulous and always instilled a sense of confidence that allowed us to move through the process comfortably. I'm sure that her approach is the same with all of her clients, but to us, the personal attention made us feel uniquely successful in our purchasing process. Anyone who has the chance to work with Kim would be lucky to do so."  The Sutters, Durham

"Kim is Awesome! She made our experience so easy and kept in constant contact with us during the whole process. We had such bad luck in the past with buying a house so we consider her our good luck charm!"   The Reeves, Cary

"Kim was a pleasure to work with! She was extremely helpful as we made our move to NC from New Jersey. She spent countless hours looking at neighborhoods, model homes, and rentals for us before we purchased a house with her. Kim is very knowledgeable about the surrounding Raleigh areas and really helped us narrow down our choice of towns. In the end, Kim helped us secure our dream home in Cary!"  The D’Elias, Cary

"We worked with Kim to both buy and sell our house in Chapel Hill. We were very pleased with her knowledge of the area as well as her analysis of homes for us as both a buyer's and seller's agent. She was recommended to us by a mutual friend and I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area."   The Mays, Chapel Hill

"Kim knew when jump in and help while my husband and I were busy at work, and when to wait for me to give my feedback before moving forward. She's confident, knowledgeable, and I enjoyed working with her.  The Owenses, Durham

"Kim was recommended to me by two people and I couldn't have agreed with them more that Kim is "the best realtor ever."  Kim is usually always available and tells it like it is. I never felt like Kim was trying to "sell me," ... if something was bad she said so, if something had potential, she called a guy she knew to get an estimate right then and there. I have already recommended her to others and will be inviting her to my housewarming party too!"  The Lepantos, Raleigh

"I found Kim through a search on the internet and was immediately drawn to her website. It was just what I was looking for and reached out to her. From that first response I felt completely at ease and in good hands as she helped me navigate my way in deciding the best location for our family, relocating from NY. She is not just my agent, but I am honored to call her my friend."  The Costas, Apex

"Kim was great to work with! She was always on top of it!"  A. Fixsen, Durham

"Kim and her team made the homebuying process smooth. As a first time homebuyer, I couldn't ask for a better advocate than Kim. I would recommend her to anyone. She was a true pleasure to work with."  T. Blackwell, Durham

"I look forward to recommending Kim's services to friends and family alike! She has been a trust resource to us on just about anything for the past four years and has never steered us in the wrong direction. When you combine moving to a new area and having no home-buying experience, it could potentially be quite nerve-wracking. That is why we consider ourselves so very fortunate to have had Kim guiding us from our first rental in Chapel Hill to the next, and then to our first home purchase. The Panykos, Durham

"Kim was wonderful! She responded to my initial inquiry promptly and made time to meet with me on my schedule (I had to travel to town from out of state). She took the time to get details about the property I was interested in so I could make a good choice. She recommended a broker, closing attorney, and options for insurance (I used her suggestions for some but not all of those) . I would absolutely recommend Kim!"  J. Frank, Durham

"Kim was a joy to work with. The house I bought was a struggle the whole way. At every obstacle she worked hard to keep everything on track. This was the hardest purchase I have had in the five that I have bought. No agent every worked so hard for me. I couldn't be happier with her. If I decide to sell and go somewhere else I will absolutely call Kim."  M. Soucy, Cary

"Kim was amazing in our search and purchase of a home. She was patient and very informative. We felt like she was great at taking the lead when we needed her to do so as well as letting us take the lead when we wanted to do so. She is amazing and we would recommend her to all!"  The Hamiltons, Apex

"Kim is a great real estate agent - she patiently showed me houses after life changes altered and delayed my plans, worked seamlessly with her team of other professionals (mortgage broker, lawyer, other real estate agents, etc.) to get things done, and was an enormous help in getting the final inspections done, particularly when I was traveling. It was a pleasure to see homes with her! I referred a good friend to her, who also bought a new home with Kim's help."

"Since we were moving with our family to North Carolina from Switzerland, we were depending on a responsible, trustful and reliable agent - Kim Van Horn was all of it. She was extremely engaged to find a home, which suited us. Very quickly she caught our style and taste, so the search was very efficient. Besides of that she gave us an all-around tour of the area, with lots of helpful and interesting information for us and our children. Kim Van Horn met all our expectations and we highly recommend her!"  The Roos, Durham

"We have already recommended Kim to family!! We were looking to rent again but when our rental fell through we decided it might be time to buy. We had already given 60 days notice to our rental and they had new tenants moving in so we were on a tight schedule, but Kim came to our rescue!! She's very fun to work with and very knowledgeable, she gave us (1st time home buyers) an education! As we outgrow our 1st house, we'll definitely be using Kim to sell our house and help us find a new one! Highly recommend!"  The Coakleys, Cary

"Kim was very proactive in her search for properties for me and really took in to account what my needs and interests were. She was very flexible about scheduling viewings and in general made the process very easy and enjoyable. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her to others."  The Readings, Apex

"Kim is an excellent agent. We have been working with her for the last 6 months, and she has been great. She sold our house in only 5 days, and she has looked at many houses for us and with us since then. I would recommend Kim to anyone!" The Childresses, Durham
