Kim Van Horn Agent
Kim Van Horn brings 12 years of experience working as a real estate agent and about 200 transactions in the area to add to the task of helping you buy or sell a house in the NC Triangle area. She worked for real estate agencies in Cary and Durham before joining Northside Realty, Inc. in Raleigh in 2019. She has also lived in Durham and Chapel Hill, so she stays current on trends, schools and neighborhoods in the whole region.
In 2005, Kim moved to North Carolina from Washington DC, where she first worked on Capitol Hill and on political campaigns as a press secretary, then did marketing for high tech and telecom companies. As such, she brings solid experience brokering deals, managing projects, and professional marketing to the job of being a real estate agent.
A substantial part of her business is dedicated to helping people move to the area from out of state, so Kim specializes in helping newcomers understand the characteristics of all the cities, towns, and neighborhoods of the area; helping her clients choose where they will be happiest.
In the last few years, a large part of her business has been helping clients buy investment property to rent out in the area, and Kim has identified the subdivisions that give the best return on investment; as well as, areas and homes with solid "flip potential."
Kim will only list 5 active houses for sale at a time, so she is able to give them all the attention necessary to garner top dollar for the house and her clients.
She stages homes free of any extra charge with a mixture of the owner's belongings and her own collection of furniture and textiles, so as to make a listing as "sale-able" and attractive to buyers as possible.
Kim does not practice dual agency, so her skills and expertise, and loyalty, are solely dedicated to her clients.
Her list of preferred contractors and service providers -- from painters to structural engineers, from inspectors to mortgage lenders to the closing attorney -- are what she refers to as her "A+ Team." They are fully vetted by her, reasonably priced, and completely trust-worthy. And she is always happy to recommend them to her clients, even years after working with her.
Hiring Kim Van Horn to manage the purchase or sale of a house will result in a seasoned professional with integrity, experience and loyalty effecting your transaction.
