Kim’s career in real estate began in 2005 in Arizona, working with new construction, development, and sales.

In 2010, Kim moved to California and returned to traditional homes sales in the communities of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and Indian Wells, though her extensive history of condominium sales and her clients’ interest in mid-century properties frequently finds her house-hunting with clients in the neighborhoods of Palm Springs. Outside of her real estate work, Kim is passionate about her work as a Board Member and Secretary of K-9 Friendly Visitors, an organization dedicated to providing beneficial services to the deaf, hard of hearing, disabled and special needs students through canine interaction and training.
