“Enthusiastic, dedicated and focused on helping you exceed your real estate goal.”

With more than 30 years combined experience in marketing, sales and property journalism Kim applies the fundamental rules of customer service to deliver excellent outcomes for her clients. Kim says “getting it right is pretty simple – listen, apply sheer hard work and communicate, communicate, communicate!” Born in the UK, Kim emigrated to New Zealand with her Kiwi architect husband in 1996. They are firm advocates of the wonderful Wellington lifestyle that provided their two daughters with an idyllic city and sea childhood. Kim joined the Just Paterson team in 2016 with many accolades of success under her belt, including Number 1 Salesperson for two consecutive years with her previous real estate firm. “The privilege of helping buyers and sellers achieve their dreams is what drives me to do my best every day,” says Kim.

"The Right Person with the Right Attitude..." For over a year we have been trying to sell my apartment with various approaches. We had so many hiccups and false starts along the way that the whole experience had led us close to given up. It was only after we saw that Kim had sold a house in our street within nanoseconds, we thought we would give it one last crack. From the initial apartment consultation, we knew that Kim was the right fit for us. She was utterly charming, highly motivated and very knowledgeable about the Eastbourne housing market. Starting on day one she led the sales process, always so professional, responsive, and positive with every interaction. For the first time in a long while, we started to gain confidence that she would get the job done. However, not in our wildest dreams did we ever expect my apartment to sell within 3 weeks of her initial listing. So what I have learnt from this entire experience is that when you have the right person, with the right attitude and skill set on your team, anything is possible.  Thank you Kim Slessor and Just Paterson, we are forever grateful.

Cheree (Vendor)

No Hesitation!  "We have known Kim for many years through various business, community and social connections.  She is without doubt a person of integrity and enthusiasm, so was a natural choice for us when deciding to sell our home in Eastbourne. She previously sold a home for a family member who was delighted with the outcome, so this was recommendation enough.  Kim gently guided us through the process (it was 15 years since we last sold a home) and kept us informed at all times.  She gave sensible advice on how to present our home and used skilled photographers to capture it in the best way possible. It is Kim's dedication to her clients that enables the sometimes stressful and process of selling a house to run smoothly.  We have no hesitation in recommending Kim to any person considering selling their home."

Ali and Andrew (Vendors)

Recommended!  "I personally engaged Kim to sell our house in Eastbourne.  I can recommend her as being very honest and easy to deal with.  I like to think she became a friend during the process."


Sold with Ease!  "Kim sold my elderly mother's apartment in Eastbourne.  She was wonderful with her and explained things carefully.  We were very happy with the whole exercise which was done professionally and with ease.  I thoroughly recommend Kim and would use her if we decided to sell our own house in Eastbourne."


Diligent and Detailed  "Kim is diligent, great at follow-up and pays attention to detail.  I found her easy to talk to and committed to getting a result.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to both buyers and sellers."


Desired Outcome Achieved  "We selected Kim to market and sell our family home in Eastbourne, a decision not taken lightly as the property was in the high value end of a market which had been consolidated for a number of years.  After a short, concentrated marketing campaign, Kim put offers on the table.  She was professional in every facet of the campaign, and we were successful in achieving the desired outcome."


No Problem!  "My sister and I were nervous about our "big move" but Kim, you made this all so easy and smooth running.  It was great to have access to your expertise and advice without feeling pressured, opening up options that we had never considered but that turned out to be ideal for us.  You were efficient and business-like but also extremely empathetic and with a lovely sense of humour to lighten our concerns. Thank you Kim!"

Chris & Avril, Vendors & Buyers

Sale From Overseas Made Easy  "Kim got our house sold professionally, quickly, and for the right price.  The entire selling process was super-well and competently organised, which was even more important to me as we were both on different continents and time zones throughout the process.  I'd happily recommend Kim to any potential seller."


An Engaging, Friendly Agent. "Kim understood and respected our needs, both when looking to purchase and selling our property, and she went about it in a professional manner.  Kim knew what we were looking for, kept us informed throughout the process and sold our home after just one open home!"

Margaret and Dave

Highly Recommended.  "I was very happy with the service provided in both the purchase and sale of my property.  I felt well informed, with Kim's regular updates in each case.  Kim worked relentlessly on the marketing of my sale, which ended with a very pleasing result.  And always with a smile - she is highly recommended!"

Annette - Vendor & Buyer

One Word - Brilliant!  "We were privileged to have Kim present our home to the market with her bubbly personality and genuine delight in selling houses.  She kept in contract through each step of the process - explaining and assuring while working very hard behind the scenes to get us top results.  She is a natural, honest, down to earth agent; one that buyers, and sellers can rely on and place their trust in - we're really glad we did too.  In fact one word cover it succinctly - Brilliant."


Thanks For Selling Our Home!  "We knew we were in good hands from the outset and your past marketing background was obvious from the instant we ready your description of our property.  Brilliant, right on the button and no verbiage!  Your timely communication, patience and helpful manner were very much appreciated during what is naturally a very stressful process.  We are very grateful for your considerable efforts and commend your professionalism and style - it helped us achieve a very pleasing outcome."

Tracey and John

We Should Be Thanking YOU!  "Many thanks for the gift to celebrate the successful sale of our home, Kim. However, it is us who should be thanking you, for your extremely professional service and excellent communications."

Wal and Bet

Communication Where It Counts... "I was very impressed by Kim’s level of professionalism and her ability to communicate effectively during the entire sale process of our home. Her market knowledge, analysis and negotiation skills were greatly appreciated. I will be pleased to deal with Kim in the future and I recommend her services to others."
