Diane Kink

With over 26 years of real estate experience and over      $1 billion in closed sales, we have had the privilege of representing some of the finest homes The Woodlands has to offer.

Kink Team Reviews

Claudia Van Harn and The Kink Team did an outstanding job in assisting me in the sale of my property in The Woodlands. I highly recommend her for any real estate needs. I live out of state and having a full service agent to support me in all aspects of the selling process was extremely important. I was able to navigate everything, from pre-listing preparations to the signing of the closing documents all from my home in Colorado. Claudia and the rest of the team were in constant communication with me and handled anything and everything that needed to be done locally. Claudia went above and beyond again and again for me. She recommended and coordinated with contractors and service providers to prepare the home for listing and handled all aspects of the selling process on my behalf. Claudia’s expertise in both the real estate market and sales resulted in dozens of in-person and virtual showings, a gorgeous online presentation of my home, well attended Open Houses, and a full price offer with a qualified buyer. All while providing me with clear and consistent communication. I have bought and sold many homes over the years and I can say without a doubt that working with Claudia and The Kink Team was an incredible experience.

This is the second time we have used the Kink Team and it worked well for us again. The professionalism of Diane Kink and her entire team was superb. Our home went from active listing to sold in three days with four over-listing cash offers. Nice work Diane, Carolina, and the team of photographers and stagers who helped prepare us for the sale. Now it’s off to Washington state!

Zillow Review | February 2024

Emily was amazing to work with. Everything from home purchase to sale/lease her and her team handled everything. Great communication- responded to text almost immediately. Highly recommend!

Grant M | January 2024

Emily and the entire team at The Kink Team were extremely professional through the entire process of selling our home and buying a new one. Emily was very responsive and always available when we needed her. The others on the team took care of the details behind the scene, and when it came to closing, Linda contacted us to make sure the details were handled before we went to the closing table. The photos and marketing The Kink Team does is by far the best of all the Real Estate companies in The Woodlands area.

Verk Family | December 2023

The entire Kink team was professional knowledgeable and kind… a rare combination in today’s world. They found a competent repair person. They assisted in setting up a deal tailored to my needs. It was a positive experience from beginning to end.

Zillow Review | December 2023

Claudia and her team were easy to work with and responsive to all my questions and concerns. As a seller, their listing of my home was more than I expected.

Karrie S | November 2023

We found out the first week of October we would need be to move to the Spring/Woodlands area by early to mid November due to my husband’s job. I reached out to the Kink team on Tuesday 10/3 and was on the phone with Holly by Wednesday 10/4. First impression: kind, personable, friendly, knowledgeable, honest, go-getter attitude, and resourceful. Within 24 hours she had our inbox filled with options based on the parameters I shared with her. By Saturday 10/7 we were making plans to see homes on Monday 10/9 because of how quickly homes were moving off the market and she was honest with me about what I could expect given the price range we were trying to work with. Also, VERY responsive via text. Easy to get ahold of via phone as well, but Holly is a great communicator and stays connected to you throughout the entire process and will be honest with you, providing her professional opinion. Even during house visits, she would point out concerns she had about the homes that I didn’t even know to be looking for. I felt like I was house shopping with a close friend. (& now that I know her, would absolutely consider her a friend!)

I could go with the details, but within 10 days of meeting Holly we had an offer on a house in a completely different area where we had originally started searching with plans to close by November 16th. The home we ended up purchasing was in a new build neighborhood, meaning she didn’t necessarily have to show up, she did not have to be present, BUT SHE WAS. She was present for everything, even the walkthroughs on the new house and had we completed an on-site closing, she would have been there as well. We actually would have closed two weeks later than we were planned had Holly not maintained regular communication with the sales agent we were working with at Lennar. When I say she’s a bulldog, I mean it in the nicest most amazing way. She works for you. Passive is the last thing I would call her. She’s candid and knows how to communicate in a way that get things done, but without being confrontational or rude. Very professional. I can’t want to tell more people about our experience with the Kink team, but more specifically, Holly Wheeler 🙂

Thank you for EVERYTHING, Holly. We are so happy.

B Bickford | November 2023

Haley is simply the best we’ve ever worked with. After an extensive 23-month search, she helped us find our dream home, securing a fantastic deal and fighting for us throughout the entire process.

Haley’s expertise in the real estate market is exceptional. Her insights and guidance were invaluable, and she knew the neighborhoods we were interested in like the back of her hand.

What sets Haley apart is her negotiation skills. She not only got us a fantastic deal but also ensured every detail worked in our favor. Her attention to detail is impressive.

But it’s her unwavering dedication that truly shines. Haley fought for us until the very end, making sure every aspect of the transaction went smoothly.

Beyond her professionalism, Haley is a joy to work with. Her friendly demeanor put us at ease, even during stressful moments.

We’re now happily settled in our dream home, thanks to Haley. If you want a top-notch realtor who will find your dream home, negotiate a great deal, and fight for you, choose Haley. She’s a real estate superstar.

Thank you, Haley, for making our dream a reality! These five stars are well-deserved, and we couldn’t be happier.

Warren W | September 2023

Claudia was an absolute joy to work with during our relocation to The Woodlands. She was knowledgeable about the area, the schools, restaurants, neighborhoods, and everything else we needed to get settled quickly into a new area. I am so grateful that we were able to work with Claudia and the rest of her team. I cannot recommend them enough to anyone looking to relocate to The Woodlands or North Houston area.

Zillow Review | September 2023

The best realtor, highly recommended!!

Azulejos V | September 2023

Claudia and her team were incredible. She was quick to respond, answered any questions we had and really listened to us. She was fantastic when my mom broke her hand by calling and reminding her of any appointments. Claudia really stayed on top of everything from start to finish. Highly recommend working with Claudia and The Kink Team!!

Zillow Review | July 2023

Totally understood the market and target pricing from day 1, follow up and contact during the process was excellent especially given the change in market.Managed buyers expectation well.

Neil M | July 2023

I sold my home in three days…with multiple VERY competitive offers. That only happens when the whole seller agent operation is a selling machine. And that’s exactly what my experience was with The Kink Team once before and now again. Emily Ward was my exceptional real estate agent, and I couldn’t recommend her more highly. She set aggressive goals and expectations and delivered. Was constantly in contact with me and guided the right resources when needed. But that’s what an Elite Leader and Teams do. Her colleagues Portia and Linda were always in control of the operational timelines and deliverables. And all together they turned the dream of selling my home in a timely manner into a warp speed sale. Additionally, their strong network of agent colleagues is unrivaled. There is a reason why The Kink Team is #1 and in my opinion, Emily Ward is certainly one of the major reasons in achieving that ranking!

Terry P | July 2023

100%, the best in the Texas.

Scott S | May 2023

Claudia made selling and buying a house such a breeze! Claudia and her team sold our house within hours! She is part of best real estate company we have ever dealt with. She is professional, experienced, and she answered all of our questions. Claudia is an excellent agent and we highly recommend her.

Emily and the Kink Team did a wonderful job selling our lake house. The marketing plan, staging, contractor recommendations, and overall preparation support were fantastic. In addition, they supported us as we were living overseas and made the process as easy on us as possible. She and the team listened to what we needed and added service, recommendations, and support above and beyond my already high expectations. They stayed with us through closing and ensured the best possible outcome for our family. Extremely pleased. Highly recommend.

Zillow Review | April 2023

Claudia was very supportive throughout the whole selling process. She answered all our questions and provided insights into the details of the procedural steps. Will not hesitate to recommend her to other customers.

bdhavale | April 2023

Claudia is our champion. My wife and I put her through the gauntlet trying to find the right home. She hustled a showing every time we asked. One house I thought was vacant but was not and we were still in there in no time. Once we found the right house, she was pulling comps and talking numbers with us so we understood where we should be. In the end, we got a great deal on a nice house. Without Claudia’s knowledge of the market and neighborhoods, we would have been less formidable standing with our negotiations. We love Claudia for all our real estate needs which included a rental before this purchase. Use Claudia, she will be your champ too.

Zillow Review | April 2023

Diane and her team are incredibly professional. They worked very hard to help us find our home and did all they could to negotiate the best deal possible. We are very grateful to have worked with the Kink Team and would work with them again in a heartbeat!

Diana H | March 2023

Diane and her team were VERY supportive! I needed to sell my father’s house after his passing. They helped by hooking me up with different trades. There expertise in the market was invaluable!

Sherry | February 2023

We had a great experience working with Haley Maida. She was knowledgeable, quickly understood our preferences and was always very responsive. Haley always made herself available to take us through several remote and in-person viewings at short notice, introduced us to local tradespeople, and negotiated strongly on our behalf in our house purchase. We have no hesitation in recommending Haley!

Neil M | January 2023

Claudia and her staff were pleasant to deal with from start to finish. She is very responsive and knowledgeable about location, pricing and overall market conditions. Communication was a priority for us and she delivered. From the beginning of our meeting, Claudia was able to provide us with a thought out plan and gave us an idea of what the current market experiences and expectations were so that we were able to make the appropriate decisions for our sale. The market has rapidly changed and we received communications as quickly as the changes occurred. We highly recommend her and the team.

Zillow Review | December 2022

I highly recommend Holly. She was very knowledgeable about the area and the housing trends. She discussed pricing with us up front. She priced the house just right. We had a full price offer in just 11 days! She was very responsive with all of our questions and concerns. She was by our side from offer to closing and everything along the way. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly realtor, Holly is just the person you’re looking for!

Diane and her team were a delight to work with from the time we first met to the time they sold our home. The sale was quick and easy and we will for sure use them if in the market and will recommend them without reservation.

Jashami | November 2022

We loved working with Haley. We were moving from out of state and trying to find a place in Houston. Haley gave us virtual tours of all the places we were interested in and gave honest feedback about whether or not the place was the right fit for us. Our move was complicated, our plans of moving to Houston fell through a few times due to different reasons but Haley worked with us through ups and downs. We also could not decide whether we wanted to purchase or rent and Haley gave us great advice as to what was the best move for us during this time. She is very patient, friendly, responsive, and is an expert in her area. We ended up renting an amazing place after nearly 3 months of working with her and we could not be any happier. We will definitely work with Haley again specially when we want to purchase a house in a year. Highly highly recommend her!!

Emily Ward and Kink Team I can’t thank you enough! For listing my home and walking me through every step getting ready for it to be on market. Awesome work of selling my home in such a fast manor and walking me through to the end with title and closing what a great job you did. Again thanks and thanks.

Zillow Review | December 2022

Thank you, Emily and the Kink Team. We spent days and months trying to find our perfect home and when it came available Emily knew exactly what we were looking for and was able to act fast for us. She always had a smile on her face and we enjoyed working with her and Linda. Thank you again Kink Team!

Zillow Review | October 2022

My wife and I recently moved from Cincinnati to Houston. We were paired up with Claudia through my wife’s employer’s relocation company. She was kind, courteous and the upmost professional. She was extremely helpful in assisting my wife and I narrow down our search and ultimately making a decision on the house we purchased. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would definitely work with her again. We highly recommend her and her associates at The Kink Team!

Zillow Review | October 2022

Emily was very responsive and knowledgeable. When we wanted to view a property she was available right away to show us the home. She made the home buying process very smooth and stress free. When it came time to negotiating seller concessions she got us exactly the amount we were asking for. We loved working with her!

Zillow Review | October 13, 2022

We worked with Holly to sell our home and we were under contract the first day we showed our house! Holly has been incredibly responsive since we met her, which was a key factor in choosing to work with her. She is very knowledgeable about the area and market and has guided us through every step of the process. Highly recommend!

Flynntx | October 7, 2022

Holly was recommended to my husband and I from a family friend who had purchased a home through Holly. From the start Holly was amazing. She was very informative and helpful in finding our next home in an area we were new to. When working with Holly you are working with an entire team who is very professional and available around the clock. I will be recommending Holly and her team to anyone who is looking to buy in the area.

K Pacheco | October 6, 2022

We went through a very difficult home sale process as the market was rapidly shifting due to interest rates. We really could not have put Claudia into a tougher position. She was amazing! She invested so much time to find various approaches to marketing our home and ultimately got us an incredible price for our home. I highly recommend her if you’re looking in the Woodlands!

B Kim | October 6, 2022

Claudia did an incredible job in guiding us in preparing the sale of Mom’s house. She provided guidance in organizing the house, and establishing an effective sale price which resulted in the successful sale of the house in a short time after listing the home.

E Lieto | October 5, 2022

Claudia was very knowledgeable and helpful through our buying and selling process. She was very responsive and had knowledge of the neighborhoods in The Woodlands that we were looking for. On the sell side she and the Kink Team provided great expertise in how to list our home, and provided a great stager and photographer that helped our home go under contract in under a week. We would recommend Claudia to any of our family and friends.

Cwsaggie | September 26, 2022

In our many moves across and throughout the country, we have sold and purchased numerous homes and have worked with many realtors. When we moved to The Woodlands, we were fortunate to discover and to work with Claudia Van Harn and The Kink Team. Claudia’s professionalism, bright personality and unrelenting dedication to our best interests throughout the process were uniquely excellent in our experience. She established a collaborative relationship with us that led to the successful purchase we desired. When it came time to sell our home, there was no question but that we would only consider working with Claudia. With support from Diane, Lisa, and others on the Kink Team, she was instrumental in helping us achieve a successful sale. Claudia and the Kink Team are the finest realtors that we have ever worked with, and we enthusiastically recommend them.
