My Professional Profile
Known professionally for her keen business and market knowledge, patient and genuine disposition and her savvy negotiating skills, Kim’s clients say she is second to none. Since entering the world of real estate she has consistently been recognized by her peers as a top producer. She was named 2013 Rising Star Finalist agent of the year by RE/MAX of Michigan, 2014 & 2015 100% Club Member and 2016 & 2017 Platinum Club Member. Also in 2017, Real Trends named Kim as one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents and she was also inducted into one of the most prestigious groups: the RE/MAX Hall of Fame.
Kim grew up immersed in every aspect of residential real estate being the daughter of a successful real estate business owner & broker in Northern Michigan. There was never a doubt that one day she would work in the industry, but before she settled down Kim had some traveling and other passions to explore.
After high school Kim attended Grand Valley State University where she earned a degree in business management. After college Kim decided to take her passion for cooking to another level and earned a culinary degree at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu’s Western Culinary Institute in Portland Oregon. After becoming a chef she would spend some time traveling and cooking all along the west coast. Although she flourished in the culinary scene out there, it wasn’t home. She moved back to Michigan to open up her own restaurant in beautiful Frankfort, MI. This experience was invaluable in teaching Kim the fundamentals of opening, running and managing a successful business. Her success in the restaurant business encouraged her to expand her entrepreneurial portfolio and she started purchasing and selling her own commercial real-estate as well as foreclosed properties for investment purposes.
Kim and her husband Micah are both from Frankfort, MI, but after selling their restaurant up there they both decided to move to Rockford to raise their four children. Drawn to the city’s charm, outdoor lifestyle and great schools it’s now home. When Kim is not working, you can find her spending time with her family, volunteering at the school, in the kitchen cooking, up north on the lake, or on the ski slopes depending the season.
