My ideal weekend…
Would include biking around Niagara, wine touring, the theatre, shopping, eating good food, drinking good wine
and enjoying the company of great people.
One day I’d like to…
Own an Inn preferably in Tuscany, an old converted villa.
A fun fact about me is…
Is that I always wanted to learn how to Fence.
If I had a theme song it would be…
Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World".
Aside from real estate, I am extremely passionate about…
Interior Design and Renovations. And Portuguese Water Dogs.
A hidden gem in Niagara is…
Jordan Village and Main Street are wonderful and scenic, along the Niagara escarpment and not far from the QEW,
it’s a great place to spend an afternoon.
In my career I have worn many hats and have over the years cultivated a unique set of skills that allows me to provide value added service to my clients. I bring construction knowledge and experience, design creativity and a business sense to the table. Besides having earned my Realtor license, my formal training includes a Bachelor of Arts degree, an Interior Design degree, insurance and investment licensing, and numerous business management courses. Before joining McGarr Realty, I ran a full-service, insurance office and prior to that I worked in the commercial construction business and the interior design business. Throughout my married life, my husband and I have enjoyed buying, renovating and selling homes. I am no stranger to preparing a home for the buying market!
Energetic, passionate and results driven are the terms that best describe my work ethic. Customer service and client satisfaction have always been my foremost concerns. I bring that same level of dedication to you, my real estate clients. Integrity, hard work and attention to every detail of your real estate transaction are my commitment to you. Above all, I love making new acquaintances so let’s talk - selling, buying, design, renovating, or any and all things real estate.
"Kim truly understands that buying a house is a process. She allows her clients to think about, to alter and to view many different housing options. Her willingness and patience was very appreciated and enabled us to get the right place.Kim sold our place within a few days, suggesting a price that satisfied all. We also appreciated her attention to detail in the write up of the offers and her follow-up on the completion of the transaction. Thank you, Kim, for everything." - Jackie and Henry Stuive
"We have only superlatives to say about Kim Schwenker; professional, dedicated, empathetic, knowledgeable and focused on results. She has been outstanding in both finding our dream property and selling our current home; all this in the midst of a pandemic! We are so fortunate to have met Kim during our property search and highly recommend her. She is "the best realtor" we have ever come across. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, no need to look further. Thank you Kim!" - David and Louise
"Thank you so much to Kim Schwenker of McGarr Realty for doing such a great job selling my home in 8 days in this environment and assisting me in the purchase of my new home.
Kim was fabulous to deal with, has tons of contacts to “get things done” and worked her butt off for me. I highly recommend Kim to any of you who are selling or buying a home in the Niagara Penninsula of Ontario." - Karen Matthews
"I worked with Kimberley Schwenker for both selling and purchasing houses. She is very professional and efficient in dealing with all tasks. We already recommend Kim and McGarr Realty to all of our friends and family. Hopefully we can work with her again in a few years." - Annie Pan and Yang Cao
"I met Kim Schwenker last year at an open house in St Catharines. When I sold my condo in Toronto this year, I knew I wanted Kim to assist with my home purchase in St Catharines. She is extremely down to earth, professional, listens to her clients and always keeps their best interest in mind. I called her to discuss my wish list and she set up 8 home showings based on my preferences. When I met her at the office, she had the specifications for each house packaged up and ready to go. After visiting the homes, I made my decision to purchase the following day. Kim accommodated any requests I had. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her!" - Val Engelmann
"Kim Schwenker has all the characteristics of a very good real estate agent. She is professional, honest, organized, knowledgeable and motivated. Kim handled both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new one. She made several suggestions to improve the marketability of our property that reflected very well in the photos and video. It was listed on MLS and sold in 4 days. When we told her what we were looking for in a new residence she quickly put together a list of properties that met our criteria and we moved two weeks later. Kim is a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her. Thanks Kim." - John Swain
I just had Kim Schwenker list my home less than 3 weeks ago. This is the fourth time I have used a realtor. Choosing who to use was tough as I have many family and friends that are agents and or brokers. I am so glad to have chosen Kim. She was fantastic. She helped me stage my home (which after living here for 25 years while raising 3 kids was a feat in itself) then was able to keep me cool while it showed repeatedly everyday until we received multiple offers!!! After which she immediately (within 24 hours) found my dream home in Halibuton County. She dropped everything and drove 5 hours to show it to us then a 4 hour drive home. Her professional demeanor as well as her strong desire to get me what I needed has been such a blessing. I need all of my friends and family members to remember she's great. Call her if you are thinking of moving. I AM SOO GLAD I DID!! - Terry Schwenker
