Kim's Resort Community Expert Philosophy
"When Life Gives You Lemons, Make some Lemonade..." I grew up in both the Bay Area and Central Oregon. I put myself through Willamette University graduating with a BS in Psychology while fighting fires on a Helitack Initial Attack Team during the summers. My Motto I live by, "No was not in my vocabulary". Needless to say, I was the first female in Oregon to fight fire on the team. This same belief system has helped me become the Best Agent I can. The goals and ambitions of my buyers and sellers becomes very personal. As a professional in the business, I bring my education, ability to persevere through all the issues that arise when working with clients. I have a love for life, and feel it is my goal to help families in the real estate world. Whether your buying a first home or a vacation home, the buying and selling process can be very stressful, and it is my years of experience, positive attitude,education that make it fun and successful!
