Kim Alden Real Estate Team

Unparalleled Service, Exceeding Expectations 

Kim is the premier luxury real estate agent in the northwest suburbs, providing impeccable service and unsurpassed dedication to ensure her clients achieve their goals.

In 2005, Kim called upon her sales acumen to launch her real estate business. She quickly became the number one agent in the Baird & Warner Barrington office and has been there 12 years in a row. Doing more that $42 million in business in 2015 and over $39 million in 2017, she continues to set records. In 2017, she was named #1 companywide for closed units for the fifth straight year.

An 80-hr work week is a regular occurrence for Kim, and her passion for her clients and love of the industry is what makes her the best. Customer service is paramount to Kim’s business. A home is the largest purchase someone makes in their life, and Kim is completely dedicated to seeing that process through to a successful close. It’s this hands-on approach to every single deal that has earned her countless referrals.

When listing a property, Kim calls upon her vast experience and deep understanding of the affluent market to sell the value of each home. She believes in educating potential buyers to help them envision the endless possibilities, highlighting the unique elegance and opulent details to uncover different perspectives they may not have considered.

Kim has been certified in the design and build principles of custom home construction by the famed Orren Pickell Designers & Builders. This additional education allows Kim to help clients realize the vision that is their next home. Whether it is simply expanding a closet or redoing an entire kitchen, Kim can open more doors and bridge the gap between what is present and what is possible.

In addition to her thriving real estate business, Kim is the owner of Alden Farms, a horse farm that has had several world championship horses in their string. She is also a past member of the World Cup equestrian board and has owned several horses that have competed at Arlington Park.

"Working with Kim has been a real pleasure. I was able to see up close and personal exactly how Kim treats her clients. When I referred my neighbor to Kim, I knew she would be well taken care of by Kim and her team. Their reputation is one that is trustworthy and professional. Kim provided just the service that was needed. She proved that over and over again with her thorough knowledge of the local market. Kim went above and beyond to satisfy her clients to the point of helping remove furnishings and negotiate the best possible sale price. She answered every phone call, email and text. Kim's professionalism and her genuine interest in assuring the clients were satisfied is commendable."

"I can't say enough about my experience with Kim Alden as my real estate broker! From getting my home ready to sell, pricing suggestions, and then of course, finding my new home - I definitely landed with the right person for the job! I had 2 other brokers that couldn't hold a candle to the service I received from Kim. Her availability and recommendations ensured that nothing was left to chance. I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing a home!"

"Kim and her team worked very hard to get my house sold. I was with a previous agent for 4 months and did not receive a single offer. Kim and her team's aggressiveness and attention to detail quickly turned things around and within 2 months I had an offer. Her aggressiveness and ability to network with a local buyer whose house she also helped sell was instrumental in getting my house sold. I would strongly recommend Kim to other potential sellers in the market!"

"Kim is amazing. She is professional, knowledgeable and thorough. We asked her opinion on selling our home, she told us what it would sell for and how long it would take and she was exactly right. Kim always responded to calls, texts and emails in a timely manner. Once our home sold, with a short closing she helped us find our new home and walked us through the negotiations, she was on top of everything including inspection issues. We would recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell."

"My wife and I interviewed several agents before selecting Kim. We are so glad we did! She is an accomplished, polished professional that knows the greater Barrington real estate market more than anyone we interviewed. Moreover, we found her to be a thoroughly delightful person with whom we really enjoyed working. Kim was always quick to respond to any question or request we had. We also found her the legal support team to be very helpful, knowledgable and reasonably priced. We sold our $545,000 home in Barrington this month (July) and are delighted we selected Kim as our agent."
