Biography

Cutler Real Estate asked Kim a few questions so you can get to know her better, and here are Kim's replies.

1. What is your professional/educational background?

I graduated from University of Michigan with a degree in Sport Management, with my eye on brand marketing for an iconic sport brand. My career began in Chicago, where I was hired to be an Account Executive at Leo Burnett in Chicago. I loved the client management aspect of my job, and I was driven by smart, strategic creative work. In moving to Columbus in 2002, I transitioned into real estate by directing sales and marketing for real estate developers focused on downtown living. From there, I received my real estate license in 2010, and never looked back.

2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?

I love working with clients - that is the consistent thread through my entire career - great client management. There are many elements to this that I enjoy - I like being a creative problem solver; I like providing my clients with the information they need to make decisions; I like to create a sense of calm in what can often be an emotional, stressful time in life. I also love the psychology that is an integral part of this business - I believe you have to be a great listener to be successful in this industry. I like to listen to my clients and hear what they hope to achieve, and I do my best to make that happen.

3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?

After spending 6 years downtown, my husband and I made the move to Upper Arlington in 2010. My husband was born and raised in UA, and we knew that is where we wanted to raise our own kids. UA is a wonderful community - great location, wonderful schools, and amazing people. I feel lucky to be raising my family in such a great community.

4. How do you spend your free time?

"Family time" and "me time" are key for me - when I get quality time with my family, there is nothing better. Watching their sporting events, fun vacations, even just the wonderful little moments that fill the day (like homework and bedtime stories) - those are the things that drive me to be a better person and a better mom. But, let's be honest - in order for me to be present for them, I need to take care of me. I love working out, be it HIIT training or swimming or yoga - I love a good workout. Photography is another passion of mine. When I get these little outlets for me, it helps me to be more present in my family and work life.

5. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be?

Truly, it comes down to only 3 things - my husband, Doug, and my sons, Jackson and Graham.

6. In one word, how do you think your friends/family would describe you?

Kim was fantastic every step of the way and made the process seamless. As a first time homebuyer, finding a realtor that you can trust is very important, and Kim exceed all expectations.

Her contacts and ability to sell at or above market are exceptional. We closed quickly and received above what we wanted for our property. Her team she choose from Stewart Title were very professional and responsive. And her own team did really well with followup. I think the Columbus market is extremely hot right now, so this may have skewed it some in her favor. Never the less, it went very well.

We started working with Kim nearly two years before we bought the house of our dream, clearly with her help. Our transition from Knoxville, Tennessee to Columbus, Ohio took longer than anticipated. We were unsure about the timing of buying a house in Columbus and equally uncertain about our price range. This is a terrible situation for a real estate agent, who had to deal with several "degrees of freedom" (sorry, I am a scientist) when dealing with her customers. We applaud Kim for not just bearing with us during this time, but for helping us to navigate through these uncertainties with patience, understanding, knowledge, and grace. Once we zoomed into New Albany as our future home site, Kim worked hard to get us all the information we needed and with her help we've got several peaks into properties that were just about to hit the market. She stayed with us during our hesitations (price versus location versus good deal versus prestige) without pushing, but always with a good advice and her own perspective on things. To make the long story short, we bought the house of our dream (well, actually, well above our dreams) and it wouldn't happen without Kim. We are proud to have had Kim as our real estate agent. Key words for our experience with Kim Mills: knowledge, reliability, excellence, trust, warmness, friend.

Kim was easy to work with and constantly kept us updated. She handled the sale of our house and our purchase of a condo. She was especially effective guiding us through the closing process for both transactions. We found Kim friendly and readily available with advice and help. Marie & Joe Hallett.

Seven years. It took us 7 years of fits and starts on the home buying journey to find the right home and Kim never gave up on us or made us feel like a lower priority. She never tired of showing us homes that we discovered or pinging us with new homes that she thought met our goals for a next home. She's a complete professional and she's always current and candid with you about what's happening in the market. When it comes time for the offer process the contract and all of the emotions that go with it, she meets you where you are and guides you step-by-step through the process all the way up until you have the keys to your new home in hand. She is truly focused on YOUR goals, not just trying to complete transactions. I can't imagine going through the home buying or selling process with anyone else.

Kim is awesome! She had helped us buy our house four years earlier, and then recently helped us sell the same place in Clintonville. For the recent sale she did a fantastic job, right from staging the house perfectly, to hiring a outstanding photographer, and then handling all the subsequent offers and paperwork. Throughout the whole process she was really responsive and we didn't have to worry about a thing. If you're looking to buy or sell I highly recommend working with Kim.

Our family has relocated multiple times and Kim Mills sincerely delivered the highest level of service and results we have ever experienced in our 23 years of home ownership. From the beginning of the home sale process through final closing, Kim's expertise in all areas of the business made our home sale a true success.

Kim was receptive to our house preferences and found us listings that were relevant. We often communicated with her via text and e-mail and she responded quickly. She was very honest in pointing out pros and cons of each house, and didn't try to show us houses out of our price range unless she truly thought it matched our personality and our must-haves. We were able to view houses very quickly with her.
