You're making one of the biggest decisions of your life, planting roots for you and your family. In many cases, it's also a new beginning. So, it's important to work with someone who really understands this.
My background is expansive, starting out as a real estate investor, while building my residential business along the way. I began showing homeowners (buyer or sellers) how to maximize their profits through my personal remodeling experiences and with the help of my reliable contacts.
With 21+ years of navigating through the ever changing real estate markets, a network of professionals by my side and a no-nonsense, personal, down to earth attitude, I work hard to make buying and selling stress free and according to my testimonials - Fun!
Since 2000, I have seen almost everything there is to see: Buyers market, sellers market, balanced market, flat market, recession market, high interest market & low interest boom market. Each market demands a different strategy to be successful in getting the winning offer accepted. I’ve negotiated through every type of situation and have experienced selling all types of properties.
I was voted Twin Cities Magazine “Super Agent" over 10 times in 2006, 2009, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020 (only 3% to 5% of all agents in the state of MN receive this award). And now I am bringing my expertise to Folsom, California and the surrounding areas.
A LONG HISTORY OF HAPPY CLIENTS
"I just wanted to write to say thanks again for helping me find my house. I love it more than I ever thought I could. I saw C.C. last night & we were reminiscing about how awesome you have treated us. Thanks for being a super agent!"

"Thought I'd tell I love how you listed and sold Gordon, nice work. I live right nearby on Bourne. The last couple years, I've watched a couple very seasoned local agents that live in the neighborhood list and sell house after house in the neighborhood way too low. Nice to see a neighboring house get sold right!"
"Super understanding and very fun to work with... took me to look at a lot of different places and was very patient with me and actually made the experience a lot of fun. Thank you, Kim... you're the best!"
"Kim Eckert helped my partner & I in buying our first home! When we first contacted Kim we had no idea what we were doing. We thought we would go out & look at a few homes, think about it & go from there. Kim is so welcoming & knowledgeable; she really took the stress out of the process & swapped it for excitement. She took things at our pace, guiding us along the way & taking our wants/needs into consideration when picking homes for us to look at. Communication was back & forth, non-stop. The market was crazy when we were looking so we had to make quick decisions. I would email her in the morning with a house & she would get us a showing that afternoon. A few times there were houses that just popped on the market while we were out looking with her & she got us in to see them. She has so many great resources & is such a great person. I am so glad that we could share this life changing experience with her. She honestly made it as stress free as possible. Thank you so much, Kim!"
"I live in Green Bay, WI, and had contacted Kim to help me with the listing of my mother's home in South Minneapolis after her passing. Even with the amount of distance between us I was always kept informed of improvements as they were completed. Once listed, communications stayed top notch as the showings took place. I could not have had better service in such a difficult time of my life. Kim went over and above in the process of getting the home ready to go on the market and making the sale happen. She is one amazing Realtor and I highly recommend her to anyone."
"Kim Eckert helped me buy my first home. Buying your first home can be a nerve-wracking experience because everything is new to you and you can feel unsure of things. Kim helped to ease that discomfort. She was always happy to explain any details of the purchasing process and explained it thoroughly. She was patient, never pushy as I had heard others could be, and listened to exactly what it was I wanted. I would definitely recommend her to others."
"We didn't think our house would sell, but Kim encouraged us to give it a try. She was right! It was the first time we sold a house and with Kim's help, it was a lot easier than I expected."
KIM HAS GOT YOU COVERED
KIM HAS GOT YOU COVERED
Selling a home is so much more than putting an address on the MLS. I get to know you and what matters most, so I can help design a marketing plan that works specially for you and your property.
I have assisted sellers from all sorts of situations, from job transfers, out of state moves, to handling sensitive family matters.
My goal is to make sure selling your property is a stress-free, smoothe and informed process every step of the way.
Buying a home can be very nerve-wracking for some and I assure you I will make it fun and exciting because it should be! This is where you will wake up everyday, and create your memories. I have helped people in all stages of life, young to old, new to experienced buyers. I have personally bought, remodeled and sold 7 homes and moved with pets and 4 kids. I get it!
My positive upbeat energy helps me build strong relationships with other agents. It's important to work with an agent who is well-respected within the community.
Lastly, I genuinely care about each and every person I work with. You will receive honesty, integrity, commitment, marketing skills and savvy strategy ideas from me whether you are a buyer or seller.
I love meeting people and I love real estate and I look forward to being your Agent for Life!
