Sam & Kim Berry
We have known Kim Butler for 17+ years because they are our beloved next neighbors. We started buying investment properties about the same time that Kim started buying investment properties. We hired some of his sons to help with some of the rehabbing projects on our properties because they had training and experience from their father on their own investment properties. This year we decided to upgrade our rental properties by selling three of our older rental properties and doing a 1031 Exchange to buy newly built rental units. Kim helped us sell the first two properties, but the third one (a single family home) had six more months to go on the lease, so it was not selling. Kim stepped in to do a White-Knight purchase so that we could include the money from the third property in the 1031 Exchange. When the lease finally expired, Kim was able to sell the property for a lot more so we ended up with a handsome return on our investment. What would we ever do without true and loyal friends like Kim Butler? You can be assured that he will work harder than 99% of the Realtors out there to make sure you accomplish your real estate goals. We are so grateful for what he did for us.
Carlos & Allison Herrera
During the economic downturn of 2008 we were lucky enough to buy a foreclosure condo for a really price. But by 2014 our family had out grown the condo and we were looking for a larger home. The trick was that we were focused on buying another foreclosure property that we could get a great deal on. The problem with that thinking was that the economy had changed and prices were on the rise again. Nevertheless, Kim is an experience investor who also loves looking for great investment properties, so he was happy to show us tons of homes. Eventually we were able to find a nice home in Johnstown with lots of upside potential. Kim did a great job of selling our Condo for a great return on our investment and we made the move to Johnstown. We were very pleased with Kim’s help and diligence in helping us accomplish our goals. When were make our next move he will be there for us again.
Ralph & Saundra Luchs
We knew Kim from when we lived in Loveland the first time because he was one of our son’s Boy Scout Leaders. When we were living in Wisconsin, we decided to move back to the Fort Collins area, so we contacted Kim to help us find a home. We looked at a very wide range of home types and prices until we gradually narrowed down our search criteria. Once Kim knew what we really wanted in our hearts, he found us a very nice home in a very nice neighborhood. He called the listing agent while we were still looking at the home and discovered that they had NO offers after being on the market for 22 days, so we used Kim’s negotiating strategies to get the seller to accept $25,000 less than the original asking price. You can absolutely trust Kim to do a fantastic job helping you with your real estate needs.
Chris & Paul Yurk
Kim has been a friend and trusted adviser for over ten years. He was able to guide through the pitfalls of selling our home when we needed to downsize. The thing I love about Kim is that he is not just in it for the money. When my sister moved back to Colorado and was looking for an apartment or home. Kim was excellent, not only in his assistance to us in this project, but also for his advice and counseling in regard to the risks and benefits of various products (from rental apartments to mobile homes to small older homes….the gamut of what my sister qualified for at this time). He kept in touch with us; located various properties which we could review or tour; took us through several properties and helped us when we located a smaller mobile home that appealed to my sister. He worked through the process with the listing agent and got the deal done for us in a fair and efficient way. I would recommend Kim to ANYONE (and I do!)….friends, family and anyone else who might be looking for a great Realtor®!
Wayne & Marie Smith
Kim has been a good friend and frequent visitor in our home for a long time. When my wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Kim continued to visit us to cheer us up and provide moral support. The effects of growing older have forced us to sell our home in Colorado so that we could move to Utah to be near our son and daughter-in-law so they can help care for Marie and me. Kim was really good to advise us on how best to prepare our home for sale. He helped us get bids for new carpets and refinishing the wood floors in the kitchen area. He also got some bids for painting, which we decided not to do, but we did arrange to have new carpets installed and to have the kitchen floor refinished because that was badly needed in order to sell the house without discounting the price. We had already moved to Utah so that the house would be empty to make it easier for the repairs to be made and easier to show the house. With us gone, it was great knowing that Kim was managing all the contractors doing the repairs. He ran a successful Open-House and found a nice young couple to buy our home. After accepting their offer, the Home Inspection was done, and that created more work for Kim to handle. He sent us videos showing all the repairs that were made and we were very pleased with the results. We are very pleased with everything he has done to make this move as easy as possible. Kim has done a great job for us and we really appreciate it.

Nunn Horse Racing Property
Kim is not your average Realtor who makes a quick buck selling your house. Kim worked hard for two years trying to find vacant land where our family could operate a match horse racing operation. This is really hard to accomplish because you have to get permits from the county and all the neighbors have to be okay with your plans. Kim helped us meet with groups of farmers south of Keenesburg who didn’t want us in their neighborhood. He attended the hearings with the Weld County Board of Commissioners and the first time we got rejected. Then 18 months later we started the whole process over again with an 80-acre property near Nunn Colorado. Again he helped us pursue our dream and this time we were successful. Nothing we did was easy, but Kim never gave up on us and we really appreciate that. If you hire Kim to represent you, he will work harder than any Realtor we’ve seen to get the job done.
Quentin & Suzie Price
We own some rental properties and often rely on Kim's expert advice and honest opinions to help us decide whether or not to sell properties. Knowing the market trends is so important. He is always there when we have real estate questions and the research he does for us is amazing. Our experience with Kim has been extremely positive. He is a very ethical and straightforward person with great knowledge of the real estate market in northern Colorado. He strives to understand our wants and wishes and then applies his knowledge to help us make good real estate investment decisions. We appreciate and trust Kim Butler with any issues relating to rental properties and residential real estate in Northern Colorado.
Steve & Wendy Dixon
Kim is my dad so you know that we think very highly of him. When I and my three children moved from California to Colorado, we were living with my parents. I had been divorced for several years and was blessed to find Steve shortly after moving to Colorado. After falling in love and making plans to get married, we started searching for a new home for our soon to be new family. Dad helped us search for homes that we liked and helped us evaluate each one we toured. It was almost by accident that we found our home because having a finished basement was one of our search criteria and this home had an unfinished basement. Lucky for us, we found it and Dad helped us through a long process of dealing with inspection issues, and delays with the appraisal. He even paid the seller to compensate her for the delayed closing to keep everyone happy. We are really grateful for his help and expertise and for the wonderful neighborhood we now live in. We are very blessed indeed.
Adam & Elise
Loveland First-Time Home Buyers
We found Kim during the early stages of our home buying process. We were driving around in the neighborhoods we liked and saw one of his yard signs and decided to give him a call. That home was already under contract, but Kim was able to find an even better home in a nearby neighborhood that we could afford. While many other first-time home buyers were becoming frustrated and disillusioned with the bidding wars going on in our starter-home price bracket, Kim was miraculously able to get our offer submitted and accepted quick enough to avoid a multiple bid situation. The whole process ended up being much easier and faster than we anticipated. We love our new home and the opportunity to customize it to our tastes and we are quickly building equity. Kim did a great job for us and we were very happy with the results.
Don & Jan Kedrowski
We were determined to sell our own home in order to save the commission, but after having no success for 3-months in the middle of the summer in a super-hot real estate market, we gave in and decided to hire a Realtor to get the job done. During the time our house was on the market FSBO, we were contacted by many different Realtors who wanted to help us sell our house. Many of them were rather rude, telling us how stupid we were to try selling our home For Sale by Owner. Kim was very different from all the other agents. He was by far the most friendly and helpful. He gave us encouragement and useful information all along the way. So in the end, we decided he was the Realtor that we wanted to work with and we are glad we did. He did a great job of showing and selling our home, and it really was a lot easier that doing it yourself. Cheers for Mr. Kim Butler for getting the job done!
Steve & Dana Otte
Loveland Rental Property
When we needed to sell one of our rental properties Kim was there as a trusted friend and real estate expert to carefully advise us in the preparation of our property to ensure it would sell for top dollar without breaking our bank or wasting money on things that would not bring a good return on our investment. Kim recommended great contractors who did excellent work and when we needed to install a Radon Mitigation System he was again able to recommend reputable professionals. We were very pleased with Kim’s service and ability to gently guide us in the right direction. He comes highly recommended by us.
Chet & Ardene Baumgartner
In 2005 I was working as a successful physician's assistant and then I suddenly suffered a stroke. My life was suddenly turned upside down. My career ended and my husband divorced me. Eventually, I ended up living in the Sugar Valley Retirement Community where I met Chet Baumgartner. Together we decided there was more to life than living surrounded by elderly people who were waiting to die, so we made plans to get married and buy a house. We met Kim at an Open-House that he was hosting. We discovered that we already knew each other, so we hired Kim to be our full-time Realtor to find us a home as quickly as possible. We looked at a lot of homes that I liked, but Kim and Chet were concerned about too many stairs because of my paralyzed arm and leg. I was stubborn insisting that I would be okay with the laundry in the basement. But Kim and Chet thought otherwise. Fortunately, Kim found us the PERFECT home with handicap accessibility and everything we needed. I am so glad, that Kim was more suborn than me. He has been the BEST Realtor ever. I’m so happy with our home.
Aaron & Sierra Wright
We owe a lot to Kim for helping us when we were down. We needed to sell our home due to a bitter divorce. This was not an easy situation for Kim because of the family dynamics involved; nevertheless, he was able to skillfully work with all parties involved to keep us on track in spite of all the obstacles placed in his way. Kim managed the contractors who worked on our house to get it ready to sell for top dollar and that took a load off our shoulders. When it came time to deal all the Inspection Objections, Kim did an amazing job of stepping up to the plate. He saw to it that every repair issue was accomplished at a professional level. And then he documented all the repair work with professional level videos that helped convince the buyers and their lender to continue forward with the purchase process. We really appreciated Kim’s ability to deal with our situation and special requests in a professional understanding way.
Alan & Evelyn Miner
Kim has been a longtime trusted friend, so it was quite natural to call on him for expert advice when it came time for us to move to Texas where we could be close to our grandchildren. We spent a lot of time in the year before we were going to sell gradually making repairs and improvements to our home. But we reached a point where we needed expert advice to make important decisions about what to do and what not to do in order to sell our 1970’s home for top dollar without spending money that we could not recover in the sale. We really appreciated the guidance Kim gave us, and we were very pleased with the quick results and positive outcome. We are confident that Kim serves all of his clients in a friendly professional manner with great insights and understanding for their individual needs and objectives.
Steve & Merissa Fleming
Kim did a wonderful job with the home buying process even with the major time crunch we gave him when our other agent completely dropped the ball. He worked really hard to find us a house in the neighborhood we wanted to be in and was able to take us to showings pretty quick once we saw something we thought would work.
Kim knocked on my door one day to invite me to an Open-House he was hosting in the neighborhood. The timing was perfect because I was looking for a condo due to a pending divorce. I had worked with another agent for several months, but was not getting any positive results. I think the other agent gave up on me because of my difficult schedule and the fact that my search criteria was hard to match. We did find one place that I really liked, but the agent was too slow in submitting my offer, so we missed out. Kim was great to work with and did his best to find just the right place for me. He also provided expert advice and recommended contactors to help me customize my new home. I was very pleased with the work Kim did for me and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Dorin & Bianca Dragoe
Mr. Butler, we are so happy that you found the perfect home for our little family. We know you worked really hard writing many offers for us that were not accepted, but you did not give up. We are very grateful for all the work you did for us, and for finding this lovely home in Johnstown. We must have you over for dinner because my wife is a wonderful Romanian cook. Thanks again, we will recommend you to all our friends.
Jason & Stephanie Canar
Longmont Rental Property
I met Kim while cleaning his teeth as a dental hygienist. We needed to sell a rental property we owned in Longmont, but it was in pretty bad shape and needed some serious problems addressed, but we didn’t know where to start or how much we should spend to fix it up. Fortunately, Kim has a lot of construction experience and rehabbing experience on his own investment properties. So he was able to advise us on what to fix and how much return we could expect from our investment. When all the repairs were done and the property was ready to sell, Kim launched the sale with a very successful Open-House. By the end of the first day we had 7 offers. Wow, we were excited and we were more than pleased with the results. Kim’s our man when it comes to real estate.
Rob & Tamara Martin
Kim was not our agent, but we bought one of his listings. Kim was fantastic to work with because there were a lot of Home Inspection Objections that needed to be handled and the homeowner was in rehab, so without Kim stepping in nothing would have gotten done. He made many of the repairs himself because he is an experience rehabber as well as a real estate agent, and he managed the subcontractors who were hired to do some of the work. And then he documented all the repair work with professional level videos that helped convince us and our lender that all the inspection issues had been properly and satisfactorily completed. He also did several extra things that were mentioned in the Home Inspector’s Report, but that we had not included in our Inspection Objection document. Kim is a topnotch Realtor in our eyes and in the eyes of our own agent.
Chris & Tracy Keller
Kim went above and beyond to help sell our home. We were in a difficult short sale situation heading into foreclosure. Kim stayed focused and found the right buyers, handled the entire process flawlessly and sold our home for more than we were asking. We almost gave up hope, but Kim worked relentlessly with absolute faith that we would succeed, and we did. We were so very happy!
Jason & Diane Heaton
Loveland to Fort Collins
Kim is an excellent choice in Realtors®. He helped my mother to sell her home as well as to locate a new home. Kim is always timely, responsive and went well above and beyond to assist us in making the transition from home to home as easy as possible for us. When we had very specific questions relating to the property we were purchasing, Kim went out of his way to research the answers for us. You cannot possibly find a better Realtor®!
Jose & Raquel Rascon
Evans Concrete Contractor
Kim is a great Realtor. He helped us buy an investment property with a big enough lot that my husband can park his business equipment on the back of the lot while we rent the house out. Two years later Kim found us a NEW home when we out grew our townhome. We didn’t think we could afford a NEW Built home, but he found the perfect house in a great neighborhood that was in our price range. We are very, very happy with our new home. Kim also helped us sell our townhome and he found two investment properties for my brother Mauricio. He is a great Realtor, no pressure, friendly and easy to work with. We always recommend him to our family and friends.
I connected with Kim when I contacted him about one of his Longmont listings. I told him that I’m always looking for good investment properties. So he set me up with a property search that automatically monitors all the new listing that match my investment criteria. In November 2015 we found a nice property in Dacono for only $130,000. I called Kim and we looked at it the first day it hit the market. Kim wrote up the offer and bingo, we hit the jackpot. As an investor, it’s great to have a good Realtor in your corner that is always looking for good deals for you. Kim did a great job for me.
Todd & Tana
First-Time Loveland Home Buyers
Kim Butler was not our agent, but we did buy one of his listings, and it was our very first home purchase. Kim was fantastic to work with because there were a few of Home Inspection Objections that needed to be handled and since we are poor first-time home buyers, we really needed him to have mercy on us even though it is a strong sellers’ market. Kim convinced the seller to replace an old single-pane window with a new vinyl double-pane window instead of just replacing the glass in the old single-pane window. He also did several extra things that were mentioned in the Home Inspector’s Report, but that we had not included in our Inspection Objection document. And then he documented all the repair work with amazing videos that helped us and our lender have full confidence that all the inspection issues had been properly and satisfactorily completed. Kim is an A+ Realtor in our eyes and in the eyes of our own agent. He really demonstrated a higher level of integrity than you would expect from an average agent.
Robert Weir Munroe
During the infamous 2013 Colorado flood, my son’s trailer home was washed away. Fortunately FEMA provided some quick compensation, which we decided to use towards a more substantial home on higher ground. Two years later on February 20, 2015 my son unexpectedly passed away. I did not know Kim at that time, but he knew my son and was highly recommended by my son’s step-father. As it turned out Kim was very professional and understanding and was a pleasure to work with. He did a great job of getting our property sold for a handsome return on my short-term investment. I was surprised and very pleased with the results and highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for an honest no-nonsense Realtor.

Then 18 months later we started the whole process over again with an 80-acre property near Nunn Colorado. Again he helped us pursue our dream and this time we were successful. But in order to make this deal work, he also helped us sell our 40-acre horse property with our 4035 SqFt home, 16 miles east of Brighton in the wide open space north of Bennett. Nothing we did was easy, but Kim never gave up on us and we really appreciate that. If you hire Kim to represent you, he will work harder than any Realtor we’ve seen to get the job done.
David & Tracy Crews
Kim has been a trusted friend of our family for over a decade. Kim gave us great council and advice on how to prepare our home and yard for sale. The backyard landscaping we did really did pay off because it enabled us to get top dollar offers within the first few days it was on the market. We really enjoyed working with Kim and trust his real estate knowledge and expertise.
Kim has helped me sell 3 different investment properties in Evans and Greeley over the past few years. Kim has been a trusted family friend for many years and we sincerely appreciate his real estate knowledge and expertise, and his ability to negotiate with all the other parties in the mix. He did a great job marketing our properties and handling all the contracts and paperwork. We can recommend Kim with full confidence that he will get the job done right! You can count on him 100%.
Mauricio & Aracely Rascon
My sister Raquel recommended Kim to me when I was looking for an investment property in Greeley. After looking at several properties, we found one that had the big lot with alley access that we were looking for. After we fixed that property up and built a big shop on the back of the lot, I started looking at a vacant house on the corner just one house over from mine. I asked Kim to contact the owner to see if he would like to sell it. Kim did fantastic market research on vacant land and contacted the owner to see if he would sell it at vacant land prices because the house wasn’t very good. Kim was able to get the house and lot for only $13,000. Wow… we hit the jackpot on that one! Kim is great to work with. You will like the way he makes everything very easy and simple for you.
Kim Butler is a true professional. A detail person. Nothing gets past Kim. I had difficult challenges. I lost my mom, who I cared for in the final five years of her life and had to give up much of my career while doing it. All the while, Kim stayed with me in my attempt to get into a home. Kim is more than a seller of homes. He wants to make the sale work and work well into the future.
Lincoln & Maddie Sweeten
Loveland Rental Property
We knew one of Kim’s sons, so when it came time to sell our Loveland investment property built in 1926, we gave Kim a call. Kim’s expertise and experience remodeling and rehabbing older homes was invaluable to us at that time. He helped us evaluate the entire house to determine what we needed to do to prepare it for sale. We were living in Utah and came to Loveland for one week to do as much repair work as we could. Kim got it listed on the MLS for us and it quickly went under contract. But the Home Inspector scared the young first-time home buyers so bad that they elected to back out. At that point we were 8 hours away with busy schedules. Kim stepped in and managed the repair work and contractors to fix a few more things so that we could put it back on the market with greater confidence. We don’t know what we would have done if Kim had not stepped in to help because we didn’t have money to hire someone to do all the repairs he did for us.
Todd & Wendy Larson
Kim Butler has been a friend of ours for several years, and Todd helped Kim do some rehab work on one of his investment properties in Greeley. When we decided that we needed to find a more affordable house with a larger lot where we could build a shop, we consulted Kim. We decided to sell our home For Sale by Owner, but we used Kim’s expertise to help us find our replacement home. Going from a nice big home in a newer neighborhood to a less expensive home was emotionally hard to do. But we needed a larger lot where we could build a mechanics shop for Todd. Kim was great to work with as we searched and toured homes all over Loveland until we finally found one that worked for us. We really appreciate all he did and for his patience and integrity. Kim is an agent that you can trust to do his best for you.
