Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

 I thoroughly enjoy being a Realtor! Successful Real Estate transactions require imagination, creativity, negotiation skills, math, analysis, good communication, perseverance and attention to detail. It's an adventure and a challenge to bring all these qualities together   to help people meet their goals.  My background in Real Estate Appraising helps me to effectively evaluate a property's value.  So you don't pay too much or sell too low.  A Masters in Business Administration has come in handy for the math and financial calculations. Nine years of practicing Real Estate is also very valuable experience to draw upon. I enjoy staging homes which helps the home's appeal to potential buyers, often leading to a quicker sale. As a mother of two and actively involved in my community, organization and patience are necessities.

Each sale is unique which is what makes Real Estate so interesting. I believe in hard work and guarantee you professional service in helping you buy or sell real estate. My market area includes Berea, Richmond, Lexington, Mt. Vernon and the Somerset/Lake Cumberland area. As the Principal Broker/Owner of Area Real Estate, LLC., I have the flexibility to make decisions as needed to avoid delays.  Let me help you find your dream home, sell your existing property or just talk real estate!

    Bought a home in 2006.
    When I thought I might want to move from Ohio to Berea, KY, I got online and contacted several realtors. Kim was the only one who responded. Star number one. She was very friendly and encouraging. Star two. She spent lots of time with me by phone and email, finding out exactly what I wanted and what I could do. Star three. For the record, what I wanted was completely unreasonable--woods, creek, privacy. . . walking distance to in-town things. Yeah, right! She admits today she never thought I'd do it, but in those days, although she was cautioning, she never rained on my dream. Star four. She spent hours upon hours over weeks and months driving me all over about four counties (before I decided for sure Berea was IT, that is) in search of the perfect property. Star five. We did it--I have over 13 acres, woods, privacy, a creek, home, barn, orchard, garden. . . paradise, in fact, and it's inside Berea city limits. Star six. She gave me a housewarming gift! I've never had a realtor do that before. Star seven. I have recommended her to everyone I knew who was looking to buy or sell. She's become a dear friend. Priceless. Wish there were ten stars available!  MoreLess

    Sold a Vacant Land home in 2009 for approximately $150K in Berea, KY.
    Kim was extremely proactive in listing, marketing, and selling our house. Despite a tough market, we had 3 offers within 10 days. She was very responsive to our questions and concerns and guided us through the process like a friend, which she has now become. I recommend her to friends who want to buy or sell a property. Go, Kim!  MoreLess

    Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in KY.
    Friends referred us to Kim when we began looking for a home in Berea. She was professional in every possible way, but was also upbeat, well prepared, and took the trouble to discern what we hoped to find. We were out of town buyers, and relied on Kim to keep us in mind when we were away, and when our house came on the market, was astute enough to realize it would do us very well indeed. From the first viewing through preparing the offer, helping arrange local financing and inspections, Kim was always on top of the process, and managed to make it work for us. She is a complete professional, but more than that, she is intelligent, creative, and good natured. We recommend her with great enthusiasm and without reservation !  MoreLess
