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

I'll admit it. I am one of the many East Coast transplants living in the Pacific Northwest. I moved to Spokane, and eventually Seattle, in 1988 after graduating from Rutgers University. Although they say, "You can take the girl out of New Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey out of the girl"(and that is definitely true), I consider myself a Seattle Girl now! I have been here for 20 years, living everywhere from Greenlake to Capitol Hill to Rainier Beach. And now, my partner, Chavi Hohm, and I currently live in a swank 60's mid-century modern home in Seward Park.

I started my career community organizing door-to-door for Citizen Action consumer advocacy group, never realizing how knocking on every door, in every neighborhood in King County might prepare me for my future career as a successful rea estate broker.. I moved from that to working on initiative and political campaigns for a few years before landing at Northwest AIDS Foundation (now Lifelong AIDS Alliance). There I spent six years traveling all over the state to places like Wenatchee, Walla Walla, Spokane and Tacoma teaching folks how to lobby and be active within their communities on HIV/AIDS issues.In 1999, I said goodbye to my non-profit career and became a REALTOR at Coldwell Banker Bain. What I brought with me was a strong sense of community commitment and my excellent communication and negotiation skills. Working as a Realtor this past decade has shown me every aspect the Seattle market has to offer; from the dot.com busts, to the highs of the real estate boom and now to the tenacity of thriving in a slowing market. Throughout each market change the Diva Fan Club has grown and I count myself lucky to live in such a great city. I am proud to be able to say that I've had a great career thus far, am in the top of tier of my profession and am having the time of my life!

      Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Junction, Seattle, WA.
      Kim really know ins and outs of Seattle real estate. My husband and I had recently transplant to Seattle and was a first time home buyer. We happened to find Team Diva out of all places....YELP! Kim and her team helped us navigate the local real estate market and basic guide to loan process, and found us a townhome in our desired neighborhood. Through the whole home buying process, Kim really showed professionalism and attention to details. She persistently followed up on closing process with seller's agent (seller's agent was not very responsive). I highly recommend Kim and her team! Service well worth it!  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2006.
      I have worked with Team Diva Real Estate on both a purchase and a sale and they were incredibly helpful with every step of the process. They really took it to the next level, however, when at my closing, the sellers paperwork had a closing cost error - that's when the full power of their negotiating skills kicked in and they ensured that the other teams error did not effect me at all in the process. It was SO GOOD to have someone really go to bat for me as a client and greatly reduced the stress of the whole thing.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Loyal Heights, Seattle, WA.
      When my fiance and I decided we were finally ready to buy a home, Kim and Chavi were able to get it done immediately. In fact, we closed on our very first home less than 30 days from enlisting their services. In a market where Seattle homebuyers are in extreme bidding wars, we were able to come out on top and WIN our first offer and negotiation. Kim and Chavi got us out viewing homes within the first few days and within 48 hours we were in contract (snapping up a home before its open house, the day after in came on the market). The mortgage lender was able to close three times as fast as most banks. From start to finish, it was the easiest move in my entire life. My living situation has improved so dramatically, and so easily... I cannot fully express my gratitude with just these few words. :)  MoreLess
