About Kimm


If you're like most people I've had the pleasure of working with, what you want most from your real estate agent are honesty, negotiation skills, and the sense that they're equally as invested in your next major life step as you are. That's what you get when you work with me.

As my past clients would tell you, professionalism and attention to detail are some of my greatest strengths, and that comes from years of experience developing a wide scope of local real estate knowledge. Since 2006, I've helped a diverse range of clients buy and sell homes on the San Francisco Peninsula, from Burlingame to Mountain View and everywhere in between. You'd be hard-pressed to find a street I haven't driven down.

My expertise in the communities I serve comes from nearly three decades of living and raising my children on the Peninsula, as well as years of volunteering, fundraising, and serving as a board member within various organizations and schools. I love a good Bay Area hike, too. As your realtor, I'm passionately dedicated to your experience. I love a challenge, which is why I work harder than other agents to stay two steps ahead to keep your buying or selling process smooth sailing. And through it all, I aim for the highest level of communication with everyone-most importantly you-throughout the transaction.

Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or a luxury homeowner, if you're beginning to think about making your move, it takes just one text, email, or phone call to get started.
