   Write me a review

I have been selling real estate since 1998, and have practiced Interior Design for 34+ years.  During that time I spent 11 years as Lead Designer for HOMETIME, the PBS/HGTV show, where I developed a strong background in new construction and remodeling.  I began Buying & Selling Real Estate on speculation while working with HOMETIME; as a team, we had done so many remodel & new construction projects that I eventually built the courage and confidence to try a few projects on my own.  That, of course, led me to pursue a license in Real Estate !

Thru my years of experience I have developed the ability to understand, visualize and identify what a Buyer is searching for.   For Seller’s I bring my years of experience in Interior Design by offering complimentary Professional Staging Services, and professional quality photographs of your property. I know that when we’re ready to list your property, you have but one chance to make a first impression, and I make certain your property shows to its best advantage and looks its very best the moment it hits the market.  Whether Buying or Selling, my background brings the vision & expertise that is crucial to guiding you in making the right decisions.

I have developed clientele in the Metro area as well as in the Greater Lakes area of Brainerd/Baxter to service a client base who splits their time between both areas.  Once a month I share my expertise in Real Estate by co-hosting a Radio Talk Show dedicated to Real Estate; write bi-monthly articles for local newspaper’s and publications addressing the many issues of Real Estate, am a Free-lance Writer for Lake & Home Magazine, a regional Lifestyle publication, I have earned the National Board of Realtors SRES Designation, and host “Lifestyle Transitions” an on-going quarterly Seminar that explores the Financial & Legal issues of a maturing population.  I enjoy every moment I spend in Real Estate, no matter what it is I’m doing, and know my love of homes, my dedication to my clients, and my goal to make every transaction a wonderful experience for everyone involved, will make the journey a memorable one for all of us !


I counsel my Sellers to prepare their homes for today’s market, and provide complimentary “Home Staging”, which includes a critique of all interior and exterior spaces to insure that the property is shown to its best advantage.

Coordination of any sub-contracting and services that may be required to get the house ready for market is included in my special services package.


My background brings the vision needed to help guide Buyers past objections and to realize the full potential of a property.  Thru my 32 + years of experience of working with Luxury Home clientele, I have the ability to understand, visualize and identify the home a client is looking for.  I know that understanding a clients needs are of the utmost importance, and that educating the clients and providing them with pertinent information will enable them to move more quickly toward their final decision regarding a home purchase.

One of my strength’s is that of a problem solver.  As a Realtor, people come to me because of a change in their life, either because they have chosen to make that change, or because of circumstances beyond their control.  It is a very stressful time, and one in which they feel very vulnerable. My job is to help my clients find a way to move forward, and to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Kim was very helpful in every aspect of helping us sell our lake place. She is very friendly and was willing to listen to our ideas. Kim would always be on time when showing us properties. I would recommend her to any future clients. Brian - bought property in Jan 2019

We have been searching for a lake home for 2 years. It was not until I hooked up with this company that I found our dream lake property. Jared knew what we wanted after we spoke. It was the second house we looked at with him and we were sold. With him and his outstanding office manger Rhonda you cannot go wrong using this company.

Ronnie Law - Bought property in 2019
As personal representative of my late mother's estate, I had to sell 3 large parcels of vacant land (including lake shore property) in Aitkin County MN. The transactions also involved a 'lot line adjustment' with the county planning and zoning office. Because I live in Illinois, we had to work together remotely for the entire process. Jared and his team (especially Rhonda) were exceptional in knowing and working with the county officials. They were also great in coordination with the surveyors. They know the market well, and after providing a market analysis, we selected a price point that generated significant interest in the first week on the market, attracting multiple offers which allowed us to negotiate a very competitive deal for the estate. I would recommend Jared and his team to anyone who is interested in buying or selling property in the greater Aitkin area Grant Benjamin - Sold property in 2018
We are very satisfied with the timely fashion in which Kim helped us to sell our home. Kim is a great listener who is concerned about all of our needs, wants, and desires. She worked hard to be personal with us in a professional manner. She helped us to understand and navigate throughout the entire  process. She was attentive and quick to respond to our questions searching for the best answers. She also knows how to handle multiple offers to get you the best deal. We highly recommend her services! Thorsoncrew - bought a home is May 2019
