About Paul

Representation I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them. Expertise The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do. I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy. Negotiations Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. Transactional Excellence I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensure a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.

Kim Colaprete
Coldwell Banker Bain
About Kim

Kim is passionate about her community, her clients and real estate. She has twenty plus years of experience in working through the nuances and details of a real estate transaction which shows in her ability to strongly advocate for her clients in any and all situations. Kim is highly respected in the industry and amongst her peers but if need be she will cut a bitch. When push comes to shove, Kim is a fierce negotiator and will always put her clients’ needs first and foremost. Kim has a deep love of the arts and design, which means when you hire her to list your home - it will always be the belle of the block or the MLS. No Dwelling listing by this Diva will ever hit the market without putting it’s best facade forward. This is referred to by other agents as a “Diva tax.” Other top agents know that their clients will be paying more when they purchase a home listing by Kim and Team Diva, than by other agents. And it works, since year after year, homes listed by Kim sell for a higher percentage of list price, than the Seattle average. From the first intake to the closing table and beyond, Kim is there for you: Fiercely advocating for you, Marketing your home above and beyond and ready to enjoy and great bottle of wine and a fabulous meal with you once your deal is done.
