Kim was born in Upstate New York and moved to California at a young age. Her family settled in Willow Glen where she attended Schallenberger Elementary School and Markham Middle School. Her high school years were spent at Archbishop Mitty where she excelled academically and received many scholastic honors while serving in Student Government and being the President of the National Scholarship Federation. Kim attended Santa Clara University where she received a Bachelor’s of Science in Political Science.
Kim purchased a home in Pleasanton where she lived for 4 years before buying her next home in Willow Glen. Kim was hands-on working on the complete renovation of her home…from windows to baseboards…she was part of each decision and some of the work too.
During the last couple of years of college and then afterward, Kim joined her family’s Premium Manufacturer’s Representative and Adverting Specialty business. As in any small family business, she learned all the nuances and dynamics of the business from shipping/receiving to sales and marketing. Kim excelled in customer service, sales and marketing, creating many successful dealer promotions and consumer offers for many of the Bay Area’s largest Corporations – Dole, Del Monte, Clorox, Sutter Home Winery and Gallo, to name a few.
After 16 years in management and sales of her family Incentive Business, Kim turned her attention to Property Management where she managed several units. She spear headed and worked on several renovation projects using her innate sense for design, colors and decorating.
As a Realtor®, Kim has thrived in many areas. Kim worked side by side with top producing agents in the beginning, helping develop their business models while beginning her career in Real Estate. Doing this allowed her to capture the market from a unique vantage point. Once on her own, she has refined her skills in this ever changing market, each year, growing her sales to a new level. Kim has been an award winning agent from the time she started listing and selling home. She is currently the #1 Listing and #1 Selling agent in the Saratoga Intero office and is among the top 1% of all Intero agents company wide.
With an honest and candid approach with her clients – buyers and sellers alike – Kim is able to utilize her unique blend of communication and negotiation skills to help her clients realize their dreams. Helping You Live a Better Life, Kim’s tag line phrase says it all. She truly believes that it is not just about closing a transaction…Rather, it is about bringing about the best end results for her clients. Kim’s clients trust her. She genuinely cares about her clients and tells it like it is. She says, “I’d rather have my clients walk away from a house, than to live there with regrets!”
Kim has also assisted her clients with renovation projects pre-sale and post purchase too, either selecting paint colors, tile and flooring to helping design a remodel project. Kim personally stages her listings too — as part of her service to her clients. She is truly a hands on Realtor!
A fresh and honest approach to Real Estate Sales and Service – that is what Kim Connor is about.
Kim is passionate about her family and has always been involved in the lives of her three lovely nieces. Those who know her will agree that being “Auntie Kim” is one of the most important things and is one of the best accomplishments in her life. When Kim is not selling Real Estate, she loves to golf. She is passionate about the game and enjoys the challenging nature of the sport. Travel is also high on her list. When she can incorporate a great destination with golf in a new place — she is ecstatic. Kim also enjoys being swept up in a great movie. Anything that inspires great emotion — humor or sentimental — it is all good.
