Having lived in large cities most of my life, I wanted to experience a mix of natural beauty and an enriched rural lifestyle, so I left a successful career in Advertising & Design and became a Real Estate Broker in Banner Elk. Changing careers takes a lot of thought, and I wanted to match my lifestyle priorities to my career interests, accomplishments & skill sets. Living in "air-conditioned" & beautiful surroundings with changing seasons, huge mountains and valleys were a top priority. Having an active lifestyle was important too: bicycling, hiking, barbecuing and even walking the dog. I then matched my creative, communications and "people" skills from advertising and television promotion to my lifestyle and aesthetic priorities. "Every day when I drive or walk around I say to myself -I can't believe I live here -it's just beautiful, and then add helping people find their dream, investment or retirement homes -well, life is GOOD!"

Sold a home in 2012 in Balm, Beech Mountain, NC 28604.

She represented me as a seller's agent. She gave me professional and honest advice. She put together a very professional package. She helped me obtain the market information that I needed to adequately determine a realistic sale price. She helped me obtain the people that I needed to work on my property (assembled a good team for me). Went through very carefully the pros and cons of my potential sales. I always felt like she was supporting me and working in my interest as a seller.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Banner Elk, NC.

Kim helped us greatly in what turned out to be a more difficult negotiation that we thought it should have been. She showed patience and experience and in the end I feel both parties, the seller and us as the buyer, closed the sale with a good sense of a fair deal. She also was very helpful in providing contacts to local services, including legal representation. She did this with clear professionalism, and without bias. She also provided after the sales assistance, proving she wanted to help us beyond the closing date, not just close the deal and move on.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Sugar Mountain, NC.

We had limited time in the area to find a mountain condo to purchase for our use and for rental. We hired Kim sight-unseen to guide us in the process. She was fantastic. She showed us numerous units around Sugar Mountain, Banner Elk, Beach Mountain, and the surrounding area, offering insights into desirable features/locations for rentals, and she found us a fantastic condo. She helped us with long-distance negotiations (we live in SC; the sellers lived in FL), and we feel we reached a very fair price. She managed the details of closing, making the whole experience fun and painless. We highly recommend Kim for any real estate needs.  More Less
