My Story

Hello, a little about me...I decided to become a Realtor in 2003, because I wanted a flexible work schedule to spend more time with my son, Joshua, who has Asperger’s Syndrome. I have so many funny stories about Josh and my coming of age in the real estate business. After a few years of becoming a Realtor (11 years of marriage) I became divorced in the middle of all of this, and had to work at careers that were not fully commission based. I have a plethora of real estate experience because of this ( District Coordinator of a national real estate company, where I reviewed all contracts for VA, MD and DC, Office manager and transaction coordinator for a team in Great Falls that have sales of 55+ million a year, and have also worked with title companies recording deeds and deeds of trust)...I am knowledgeable in Real Estate, but also have a heart.

My son is 25 now, and I am SO proud! He is a smart, kind, and loving. I am glad that I made the choice to be a Realtor, and spend more time with him. I hope you don’t find this sappy, but inspiring.

Thank You,

Kim
