“Cheryl and I have known Ev Winningham and Kimberleigh King for almost two decades now. We began using them as our preferred real estate agents in the mid-nineties when we decided to buy property and build a custom home. They were wonderful during that process and stayed with us until our home was completed. Over the years, we have used Ev and Kimberleigh to sell multiple homes, vacation homes, and apartment building and vacant land. All of these transaction were handled professionally with the highest level of success and satisfaction. In addition, Ev and Kimberleigh have helped all three of our children purchase their first homes and suspect they will eventually help our grandchildren as well! Cheryl has also recommended them to many clients over the years, and in each instance the clients have been delighted with their service.
Ev and Kimberleigh's knowledge and understanding of the Seattle market is top notch. They clearly understand the ins and outs of making a successful real estate transaction occur, from performing a market analysis and pegging the right market price, to marketing the property and holding your hand throughout the negotiations and final sale process. They have not only earned our trust, but we have become very good friends over the years.
We highly recommend them and consider Ev & Kimberleigh the two best real estate agents in Western Washington."
- Cheryl Studebaker and Bryan Sanderson
“Working with Kimberleigh and Ev made our first home selling and second home purchasing experience such a pleasure. Their expertise, after decades in the Seattle market, made us confident that any real estate decisions we made were fully informed. Their patience and diligence gave us the opportunity to explore various neighborhoods in Seattle until we found the perfect home for us. They did an incredible job advocating on our behalf as buyers in a competitive bidding situation for the home we bought. We couldn't be happier with our experience working with Kimberleigh and Ev. We have found "our" real estate agents and know they will be there for us as we grow in Seattle. "

“I have been in sales my entire business career and Ev was by far the most professional Realtor we’ve ever worked with in five moves!”

“Kimberleigh came highly recommended from a friend and we had a wonderful experience with her, both throughout the process and re: the final outcome of landing a fantastic house. Kim was calm, centered, confident and patient; she was always very responsive and flexible when arranging times to look at houses, which we so appreciated given our busy schedules. Kimberleigh was well-informed and remained focused on our best interest and preferences throughout the process, she even reminded us when we began to veer off track from our top priorities. Kimberleigh is also excellent as negotiating and navigating the challenges associated with multiple offer situations. We honestly missed the time we spent with Kimberleigh after we closed on our house!
Home buying can be a stressful, intimidating process, and having Kimberleigh as our realtor provided us with the expertise, clarity and support we needed. We would highly recommend Kimberleigh to anyone looking for an agent with a high level of expertise and experience that also puts your interests first.

We are very happy with our home and so appreciate all that Kim did to make our first time homebuying experience fun and effective. ”

“Ev on both the sale and purchase there were complications…appraisals, impending deadlines, and uncompromising parties and other things–throughout it all, Ev kept us happy and optimistic that everything would work out, and it did, thanks to her unending energy. I’m sure that with an average Realtor, both deals would have fallen through. We feel like she did an outstanding job and thought you ought to be aware of that.”
