"As first time home buyers, Kim made our process super easy and painless!! We were thrilled with Star Realty!" - Eben and Liz Holub (Buyers)



Hear what many satisfied clients, REO clients, fellow agents and other real estate professionals have said about working with Kim Novak.....



“Kim is very knowledgeable about real estate and was able to help us get into our home quickly and painlessly. She is professional and patient as well!”  - Christina and Josh Burton, Buyer Clients


As an REO asset manager, it is extremely important to have a strong REO agent that is responsive and will give you an honest assessment of a property within your inventory  – in short – they are your eyes and ears on the ground. You need a skilled local professional that understands the local real estate market and can communicate a proper marketing/sales strategy for that individual asset to ensure it gets sold quickly and with the best return possible for the client.  I had the pleasure of working with Kim Novak to help sell many assets over a 4 year period and can say she is a true professional in every sense of the word. I always knew that the property assignment was in good hands and that I would get an accurate and honest assessment which would help me greatly in communicating the proper sales strategy to my clients to ultimately get them SOLD with confidence that the bottom line return was as good as possible at that moment in time. If you are looking for a true Real Estate Professional, I highly recommend Kim Novak!”  – Keith Russell, Asset Manager at National Default Services, REO Client


"Kim I don’t call you “My go to Girl” for nothing. I wish I had one of you in every state! As an Asset Manager it is a pleasure to know you have a true real estate professional handling your assets. I don’t think there is a bigger compliment I could pay you but to be able to honestly say “You know your business, you know your market area and you know how to sell properties”. I always enjoy working with you and I hope we close another one real soon. I know we will. Thanks again for all the hard work!"  - Tim Ransom, Asset Manager at One West Bank, REO Client 

Sellers Elaine and Daniel Griffin:

"From the very first meeting with Kim until closing my confidence in her was extremely comforting. Every step of the seller process was made easy because she is very knowledgeable and able to navigate the process of selling a home. The best thing I liked was the ease of how to communitcate with her. During the first meeting we established a timeline that was very helpful in getting me where I wanted to be in the process. We started in January, officially put the house on the market February 1, 2019, and SOLD March 4, 2019! The target deadline we set was May. Selling the house 2 months under schedule is not bad at all considering it was the dead of winter. Kim preferred communicating via email with me and once that was established it was easy to get all of my questions answered within the same day. The ability to use fax, computer, email and telephone all made it easy to transfer documents to each other. There are obviously mixed emotions when selling a house and Kim made sure I didn't drop rock bottom by encouraging me along the way. It is safe to say she is one of the top Realtors in Harford County and her services go above and beyond. Don't hesitate when looking for a Realtor to move your property, call Kim. She has a repertoire of resoursceful people to help her find the right combination of seller/buyer contacts to assist you along the way. I never dreamed the house would sell within a month, remember I was stuck on winter and people don't look for houses in winter. Wrong thought pattern. Kim is the best realtor and she has a track record to show for it." -Elaine and Daniel Griffin, Sellers
