Get to Know Kim Gandy

How joyful it is when you find something you love to do and are great at it!  After several years traveling in a high-stress job in industrial sales, I was burned out on working for someone else.  While I was frustrated that my position as top salesperson in the Region for my company went unrewarded, I made the leap to a new career in real estate.  Always interested in this field, I quit my job, obtained my Broker's license, and am now a successful Realtor with RE/MAX.  I am extremely motivated that I control how my efforts are rewarded.  It's a great feeling to get out of bed in the morning being excited about how I spend my day.

What a rewarding experience to see the joy on a young couple's faces when they are buying their first home.  It's exciting to see families moving up to a larger home and they are thrilled with their choice.  I am so honored when they choose me to help them in this most serious and personal decision.  It's always a pleasure to keep up with my new friends to see how they have settled into their new home.

With a B.S. in Business Marketing from UNC-Charlotte, my focus is on an aggressive strategy to sell my clients' homes when they outgrow them or are re-locating to another area.  Negotiation is definitely an art, and one that I relish.  My main goal is to get homes sold quickly and for top dollar.  This also comes in during the buying process when I assist a Buyer to obtain a great deal on their new dream home.   Once an Offer to Purchase is drafted, that's when the fun begins!  My goal is the same as my Buyers AND Sellers.

I am very active in the local real estate community and have made many friends with my respected colleagues.  It always makes for an easier negotiation and smoother transaction when you know the person across the table from you.  Being a serious negotiator does not mean that I do not follow The Golden Rule.  There is always a solution to every problem if you treat everyone the way you want to be treated.  "You always catch more flies with honey..." 


I am one class away from earning my CRS Designation (Certified Residential Specialist).  Residential properties are my main focus.  The counties that I service are:  Cabarrus, Rowan, Mecklenburg, Iredell, and Stanly.

Of course, being an area native helps tremendously with first-hand knowledge about the greater-Charlotte area.  Charlotte is not the same place it was when I was a little girl.  With our booming economy, beautiful year-round weather & landscape, and the proximity to the mountains & beaches, everyone has found out how good we have it here.  They come visit, stay here, tell all their friends and family, and then they all come.  I wouldn't live anywhere else!

As of February 28, 2010, I have earned the CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) designation.  When a homeowner is in financial distress, foreclosure is not always the best option.  A short sale is almost always more desirable.  Because I do not want to see any family lose their home, I wanted to become an expert when dealing with this situation.  Banks recognize the CDPE designation and know when the package arrives, all of the work has already been done.
