Kim Alden Real Estate Team

Unparalleled Service, Exceeding Expectations 

Kim is the premier luxury & residential 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 13 years in a row. Doing more that $39 million in business in 2017 and over $32 million in 2018, she continues to set records. In 2018, she was named #1 companywide for closed units for the sixth 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.

"Kim Alden is by far the BEST agent I have ever worked with. Her responsiveness and attention to detail are unparalleled. Kim was with us every step of the way through a challenging 4 month REO purchase process. Her support team and every recommendation she provided were near-perfect. I HIGHLY recommend Kim and her team!!"

"My husband and I talked to several leading real estate agents who knew the Barrington area well. Kim Alden came highly recommended by a friend who had worked with her on the sale of her own home, so we included her in the interview process. We selected Kim and found her to be professional, knowledgeable, down to earth and easy to work with. The strategic marketing plan Kim presented for the sale of our home was detailed and spot on. From the beginning Kim was a great communicator and very responsive to phone calls, emails and text messages. We had a great experience working with Kim and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

"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!"
