The Dedicated Service You Deserve
In addition to having nearly three decades of experience as a real estate professional, I grew up in a New Hampshire real estate family. My mother was a successful broker who had her own brokerage and put together several big developments, working with engineers, builders and town planners.
Both my mother and her colleagues took me under their collective wing and mentored me through every kind of market. They taught me the importance of a disciplined work ethic that includes patience, endurance and job focus, regardless of market conditions. From them, I also learned the true meaning of dedicated service to you, my client. And I believe it's my consistent practice of these core values that's brought successful results for thousands of my clients with real estate goals just like yours.
It may seem fundamental, but my goal is to collect and provide as much information about your home as possible. From details on the construction, to improvements and upgrades you've made, to utility providers and their costs and school and town services offered — the more information shared with buyers, the easier it will be for one or even more of them to choose your home over any other!
I maintain an ongoing "information roadway" with you so that your home's time on the market is significantly shorter, because it's a real estate fact: homes that languish on the market end up selling for less.
But when you have me as your listing agent, I keep you fully informed on the market conditions you're selling in with a bi-weekly marketing report on everything that's happening with your listing and a monthly market statistics report on the preceding month's happenings in the local market. This information keeps you in front of the market — instead of following it — ensuring your home is always #1 in its class.
Be The Beneficiary Of My Insider Market Knowledge
I know the New Hampshire real estate market like few others. Here's why...
After nearly three decades of buying and selling real estate in the region, I may well have handled a previous transaction for your home, the home you're viewing or a similar one in the same neighborhood. Whether you're buying or selling, this kind of intimate neighborhood knowledge puts you way ahead of the competition.
By viewing homes on a regular basis, I continually gather visual knowledge of your home's competing properties as they come on the market. And I inform you by email and phone of how they affect your home sale.
In addition to being a real estate broker, I'm a certified appraiser with over 13 years of home appraisal experience. If you're selling, my appraisal knowledge gives you a huge competitive edge in pricing your home regardless of market conditions. And if you're buying, my appraisal knowledge can save you thousands.
I also have experience with processing mortgage loans, am familiar with what's needed from a borrower and can answer many financing questions that come up. In addition to having a top-notch in-house loan originator, Diane Capodieci, who first gets buyers approved, I am knowledgeable of the basic lending guidelines and ratios and can save you — buyer or seller — valuable time.
Successfully buying and selling real estate is all about relationships. And today, well over 50% of my business comes from referrals and repeat business from past clients.
I attribute this to my unique system for keeping in touch both personally and professionally with my clients and their families. I want them to know that I haven't forgotten them and that if there's ever a question or problem I can help with, they're always welcome to call me. I'm very pleased that so many do, and I hope you will too.
Although my office is in Windham, New Hampshire, I service all of New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts. So go ahead and call me at 603-894-4600 and discover the difference it makes in your buying or selling experience when you get the dedicated service you deserve.

The Spanos Realty Team — Your Team Of Professionals
In addition to having a qualified assistant, I've assembled an entire team of real estate service professionals to assist you in buying your next home. And I know from years of firsthand experience that these professionals do excellent work and are competitively priced and dependable.
Among them is my in-house loan originator, Diane Capodieci, president of New England Best Rate Mortgage Company. Diane will take your information and get you pre-approved before you begin touring homes. This benefits you because, when it comes time to make an offer on the home you love, your pre-approval letter makes a big difference with sellers. Why? Since they know you're financially qualified to enter into negotiations to buy their home, they take your offer more seriously.
My team also includes Kristen Prince, owner/operator of Title New Hampshire, LLC. It's important to know that not all title companies are alike, and you deserve the best. Acquiring a clear home title that's free of all liens, dues and unpaid taxes is a critical component of your purchase transaction. And Title New Hampshire is one of the nation's finest and puts all your title worries to rest.
Also included in the Spanos Realty Team is my hand-picked group of other recommended service providers, which I've assembled over nearly three decades in the business. My team includes everyone from a trustworthy home inspector to carpenter, roofer, plumber and more. In fact, I have everyone you could possibly need for a seamless transaction on speed dial.

Selling Your Southern New Hampshire Home
The #1 complaint consistently reported by home sellers is a lack of communication on the part of their real estate agent. But rest assured the clients of Kim Spanos are not in that group. And when you choose Kim as your listing agent, you won't be either. Here's why...
My job is to make sure your home is the #1 choice of its type to the typical buyer. And staying ahead of the market with weekly research on your home's exact position with competing homes entering the market is KEY! Communicating these details is an important part of the information I share with you because ... staying ahead of the market — instead of following it — is the factor that can make your marketing time much shorter than most and can mean more money for you at the closing table!
When you have me as your listing agent, you get a bi-monthly marketing report on everything that's happening with your listing. This includes property-showing feedback from real estate brokers and prospective buyers. It includes all advertising and marketing activities performed on your behalf and the results. And once a month, you receive a market statistics report informing you of the preceding month's happenings in the local market.
Also, by going into the field and viewing homes on a regular basis, I continually gather visual knowledge of competing homes as they enter the market. And I update you via email and phone calls as to how they affect your sale or change your competitive position in the marketplace. This information keeps you ahead of the market and ensures your home remains #1 in its class.
And because I'm also an active certified home appraiser with over 13 years of experience, my precise knowledge of area home values gives you a huge competitive edge in pricing your home correctly, regardless of market conditions.
The Spanos Realty Team — Real Estate Professionals On Your Side
For even more help in selling your home, I've assembled an entire team of real estate service professionals who do excellent work and are competitively priced and reliable. Beginning with my qualified assistant and loan originator, my team includes a title company, home inspector and a list of contractors I call on for quick quality service that's competitively priced. It's all of my team members working together who keep your home sale on track to closing.
For nearly three decades, we've taken thousands of real estate transactions to close. And to get there on some of them we've successfully overcome seemingly impossible obstacles — everything from difficult appraisal conditions to complex title glitches to helping a seller get a variance in order to sell his property.
We also provide professional move-out cleaning service and a home warranty beginning the day you list with me and continuing for one year after your home is sold.
And if that's not enough, I — with the help of my in-house loan originator — research and find the type of financing your home qualifies for. And if there're obstacles preventing your home from qualifying — such as peeling paint or a missing hand rail — I can have a painter and carpenter there in no time and get the work done affordably so these issues won't be a condition of the appraisal or loan closing.
Especially in a slow market, knowing the available financing and ensuring ahead of time that your home qualifies for it can make your home a better deal than a similar home down the street. Anything you can do to improve your home's competitive position in the marketplace is a selling point in your favor.
A Pro-Active Approach to Marketing Your Home
With nearly three decades in the business, I've seen all kinds of markets — up markets, down markets, slow markets, flat markets and booming markets. Through them all, I've found buyers for my listings. And I'll find the perfect buyer for your home, too. I can say this because I'm simply not like other agents today who are content to stick a sign in the yard, sit back and wait for the phone to ring.
Instead, I take a pro-active approach to marketing your home. I have a set schedule I follow every day to prospect for buyers to tour your home. I personally call people in your neighborhood, my past clients and the qualified buyers in my extensive database who've expressed interest in a home like yours. These phone calls — as well as going out and talking to people and networking with other agents who have qualified buyers as clients — bring astonishing results in every market condition.
