About Kim

I truly love my career in real estate. It gives me the opportunity to serve people while earning a living. I have grown up in the Chelsea/Shelby County area and know all about the booming growth first hand. I have also worked in small family business for over 16 years so I know how challenging it can be making sound financial decisions. Working as an entrepreneur has allowed me to experience first hand the vast changes and growth throughout the county and state as well as give me much needed experience in sales, marketing, and communication with others. After working on the business side of development I became interested in obtaining my sales person license and have loved it ever since. Serving the community in real estate since 2006 I have now earned my Broker’s License. I look forward to earning YOUR business!

Testimonials

“My home buying experience, which was very limited, turned out to be a most pleasant experience and that was due to Kim. She has the knowledge you need and the caring attitude that makes all the difference. Knowledge can be obtained, but the care is that extra ingredient that she brings to her clients. She doesn’t just stop at the time of sale, she keeps up and offers her help with problems that might arise after the sale. I wouldn’t use anyone else should I need to make a change and I would recommend her to anyone seeking a competent caring realtor.”--Cande Maxie

We never once felt pressured or overwhelmed, and she always took the time to explain everything in detail for us. She really went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with our
decision. Kim truly has a servant’s heart, and we feel blessed to not only have her as our Realtor, but also as our friend.” — J. & E. Watkins
