Kim Howard made the decision to pursue real estate brokerage after realizing that her passion for people, desire for results, and business mindset gave her an ideal temperament for the business. She brings a creative, innovative approach to real estate after spending a successful career as a marketing consultant for both large Fortune 100 companies and smaller businesses. Kim’s former clientele include a state senator, a non-profit organization, and even celebrity clients. Her previous clients have noted Kim’s “contagious upbeat personality, positive outlook and resourcefulness” as key attributes of her character. Kim is able to bring top-notch marketing, a personable approach, and a laser focus towards her clients’ needs—and she constantly considers how their goals can best be met.
“If your personal purpose ties into your career purpose, the greater your chance of success,” Kim observes. “That’s what led me to make the leap into real estate, to blend my interest for working with and meeting new people and passion for all things real estate into a career.”
As a former American Idol contestant, Kim welcomes competition in both her personal and work lives and is a skilled negotiator for her clients – thriving in multiple offer situations for buyers, and making sure her sellers get top-dollar for their homes.
Kim is regularly invited to perform at nationally televised events and was recently named Chicago Country Idol. She continues to enjoy performing whenever her schedule allows. She is also passionate about well-being and living an active lifestyle, which keeps her healthy and energized for her clients’ needs.
Kim was recently married in May of 2016, and currently resides in the downtown Evanston area, but has moved to a different area of Chicagoland every year for the past five years, leading to a deeper understanding of the local market. Whether buying, selling or just looking for market insight to prepare you for your future real estate needs, Kim is looking forward to help you to achieve your goals while guiding you every step of the way!
