Terry and I are very happy to be in our new home. From last July when you toured Terry around the area until the October week in which you and I looked seriously at houses from Hendersonville to White House and beyond, your positive spirit never flagged. We were not looking for high priced property but you treated us as if we were royalty looking for a palace. Even our family dynamics (we moved here to be near our daughter and they were very active in our search) didn’t deter your efforts! You rolled right along and included them in the search as well. You demonstrated compassion, professionalism and a true caring for us not just as clients but as friends. This is characteristic of a very kind, honest and ethical person who loves what she does. You picked up on what I was looking for the first day we met. We actually didn’t meet until I had narrowed our search a bit. I had just arrived in town and gave you only a two-day warning that I wanted to get serious about our search. Even though you were away on vacation, you provided other agents in your office to assist me; you orchestrated the search process by internet and phone the whole time you were on holiday. I would say that is going the distance! Although we looked at a wide variety of houses and locations, all fit into the parameters that we established. Even when two homes that interested us did not pass a cursory inspection, you encouraged me to keep looking. I’m glad that I listened to you, especially now that we’re starting to settle into our new home in Kennesaw Farms. As our scheduled closing approached, you remained on top of all of the details. Even when you faced a personal issue that required your presence, you kept the ball rolling. Terry and I are most appreciative to your tireless efforts on our behalf. After buying, selling and building 22 homes in our lifetime, we have dealt with many real estate people in the US and Europe. Kim Blanton is by far in a class all by herself. We were fortunate to find her. Wishing you the best in all of your future endeavorsBobbie and Terry Ryan
Kim did a wonderful job finding my Gallatin home in 2014. I moved from KC to Gallatin, so most of the work was done remotely, but Kim was a wealth of information regarding the area. So important as I was new to the area; invaluable references for services, etc. And she was able to zero right in on my needs, all the listings she sent to me were right on target. Would definitely use Kim again should the need arise, and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Top-notch.Monica Lundquist
We've had six buy/sale experiences with Kim Blanton. We fell in love with her the first time we met her and knew she would be our Realtor and friend for life. Kim is completely honest, great at finding hidden gems, available for questions - yes, even the crazy ones, always willing to go above and beyond for her client, and she will lead you through the entire process from beginning to end. We highly recommend Kim Blanton. Try her one time and you will be a lifetime friend, too!Christine and Mark Latham
Kim got our house sold! Experienced professional that is genuinely kind and caring. Very well organized; this made the whole process seamless. Would recommend Kim.Richard and Anna Leach
My wife and I have been real estate investors since 1990. We are picky, busy, and often frustrated by realtors' apparent inability to focus on revenue and use our time wisely. Out of the twenty or so realtors we've worked with, Kim has done the best job of meeting our needs. Her response to phone calls and emails was so fast I sometimes wondered if she had a clone or two covering multiple phones and computers. Her communication was thorough, concise, and clear. Her marketing brochure for our recent sale was what you would expect for a home costing ten times what we were asking. The quality and ubiquity of her online marketing of our home was amazing. Any combination of relevant search terms through any search engine I tried would deliver our house at or near the top of the results list. Despite her excellence in these areas, what impressed me most was her good advice. Kim worked like a business partner to advise us on the most cost effective improvements, best paint colors and flooring replacement to get the best return on our investment. I was initially hesitant to stage the house, but she backed up her recommendation to stage with data and a sales price that left me pleased. Her experience and professionalism paid off for us. I will definitely use and recommend her services again.Cameron and Katrina Stokes
I wanted to thank you for your help in selling our home in Cedar Hill. Your professional approach and market knowledge really made a difference. The marketing of the house was just superb- in content as well as delivery, and we really appreciate the way that you advised us and effectively communicated every step of the way. Without question, we are recommending you to all our friends and neighbors, whether they are buying or selling. I just know that you will exceed their expectations, as you did ours! Thanks againTodd and Bambi Threlkeld
Kim is always there to answer all types of questions we have and always gives us an honest answer. We completely trust her with all our real estate needs. Thanks so much Kim for all your work!Jacob and Stacy Gardner
We had nothing but a wonderful experience working with Kim. She made buying our first home a pleasant task. She has wonderful patience as you make your decision. Kim is very professional yet friendly, has a great personality to work with and wonderful enthusiasm with a positive outlook!Troy and Chellsey Woolever
Thanks again for meeting with me today. I must say that I was not prepared for such an incredible presentation. I just thought you would spend 5 minutes glancing at the house and say “Ok, here’s a good price.” - haha…. I can tell you are a professional in your field, and you left me feeling 110% confident that you will bring a good sale! I cannot wait to see what marketing you come up with and how it is presented on the various websitesLisa Whitaker
Kim made our move to Goodlettsville easy and worry-free! We had 14 days to find a home, negotiate, close and actually move here from Texas... Kim made it all happen!Darrell and Shannon Dunn
While at our home in California, I found Kim. Her website said she was an Equestrian Realtor. That was exactly what I needed. When I spoke to her on the phone, I knew she would be a perfect fit. In September we came 2,000 miles from our home in California and had 1-1/2 weeks to buy our dream/retirement home. My husband and I each had our own set of priorities. He's not the horse person. Kim went above and beyond to find us a home. Our PERFECT home! I'm happy to say that we are now Tennessee residents and love every minute of it. My horses have beautiful pastures to graze on, and a warm barn to live in. I will now have a horse riding buddy in the Spring, too!Rick and Kelly Rinehart
We chose Kim to sell our home when we decided to downsize. We knew she was an outstanding realtor because she had sold houses next door and second door from us. Mentioning our possible move to our previous next door neighbor (whose home Kim sold) they highly recommended her. Our home wasn't an easy sell, rural area, 14+ acres and outside buildings, well water, etc . Only a few months later it was a done deal. In addition to downsizing our home, we also decided to reduce additional responsibilities by selling some of our rental properties. Once again, Kim to the rescue. In a highly populated neighborhood, the sale was accomplished in only a few months. She is definitely your partner in a real estate sales effortJoe and Anita Offutt
Kim is our life long go to for real estate needs...she is a wonderful agent and a beautiful soul.Jenni and Todd Hunter
Hi Kim, it was good to hear from you. On our new house, we have finally gotten most of the boxes unpacked. I will take pictures soon and send them to you. We really do love our new home. It is so bright and airy. My favorite part of the day is sitting in the kitchen eating breakfast as I look out over the backyard and all of the trees with their fall foilage. It is so beautiful. We are very exicited about spending the holidays in our new house, as well. Thanks for making our dream come true(twice).Rob and Angie Pachciarz
Kim is the best! She sold our home in 2015, and we purchased our home in September using her as well. Kim will do everything she can to make the process go smoothly, and her knowledge and experience will put your mind at ease. When you are buying a home, she will go above and beyond, even if that means pulling permits and drawings that will be beneficial to you. There was not a single question Kim couldn't answer, and in this field that is so important. My anxiety was high, and through everything Kim knew how to handle each situation, and knew just what to say to make me feel confident in each step. You can trust Kim, and trust that she has your best interest in mind. Overall she just wants her client to be happy, and happy we are with her! Thank you Kim!!
Brenda and I wanted to touch base with you and let you know how pleased we are with the way you handled the sale of our home on Chickasaw Trail. It went so much smoother than either of us thought was possible. We were very apprehensive with the market still in uncertain times. In all honesty, we were a bit doubtful when you recommended ' staging' the house. We didn't know if the extra expense would be worth it in the final price we received . We were very surprised with the difference it made in the appearance of the house. It was very well done, and made the house look like a show place. We feel that it certainly had a huge influence on the length of time the house was on the market, and the price of staging was more than offset by the final offer we received. A very good suggestion by you. Also, the effort you, personally , put into the job was so gratifying that we knew right away we had the right person representing us to prospective buyers. The experience has been a complete success for Brenda and IButch and Brenda Carr
I was led to Kim in my search for someone in TN ( we were in NC). I let the events dictate my decision. The result: Kim Blanton. Kim is amazing.Richard and Diane Gross
She is diligent, wise, savvy, more than competent and a very nice person. She searches out any possible anomalies on her own. She is totally concerned with minimizing purchase and property issues for the sale and for anything that may arise in the future. She is readily available by phone and email. She keeps constant contact from her end as well.
Kim also arranged an excellent mortgage person for us (Rhonda Holt, equally as savvy, equally accessible, detail oriented and highly efficient, at Acopia Home Loans). When she had to be out of town on our scheduled trip to TN (we purchased from out-of-state), she arranged for us to be guided about by a very nice, high powered and equally efficient person to be in her stead (Jennifer Tieche). Kim made unrushed time before she left to meet and be with us.
I can't tell you how much easier she made this potentially highly stressful journey so much easier (especially from out-of-state). With respect to the whole process of search, examination, decision and purchase, Kim was there all the way all the time. I have been a supervisor, administrator and business person. Kim is one of the most professional people I have ever dealt with, in every way. She has all it takes. In the past, we've had other agents. Kim is far superior. I could write reams of the little and big things she did, her being proactive and prepared and how she worked with us... and what a nice person she is. I wouldn't go to anyone else, only we have found our final house (hopefully).
Kim didn't only walk us though the whole process, she walked with us.
As first time home sellers, we were unsure about what all was involved in the process. Luckily, we found Kim Blanton! Kim came out to our old house and had an amazing presentation. She informed us exactly what she thought would sell our house quickly. After we made the changes, and got our house on the market, our house sold in 2 days!!!! We had an awesome time working with Kim. She also walked us throughout the process of buying our new home in White House, TN. I would definitely recommend working with Kim. We are loving every minute we spend in our new home. Would not have been possible without Kim! YOU ROCK!!!Kenny and Stacey Summers
KIM IS AWESOME!!!!
Moving over 500 miles to a new state is scarey, but Kim made it as easy as possible. We were referred to her by our realtor in Michigan. Kim listened whole heartedly to what we wanted in a house, barn and horse property. She kept us up to date on a daily basis on what was new on the market and what went under contract. There was one house that we made a special trip down to see, and after looking at it, Kim felt something wasn't quite right about the house. So on a Saturday nite, she did her research and found out some things about the house and property that made us decide not to put an offer in on it. And it was the right choice.
Once she found us our house, not only did she guide us through the closing process (here in Tennessee but we were in Michigan), but she went out of her way to find us the other services we needed, painters, fencers, horse shoers. We are so thrilled with what she has done for us, that she and her hubby are going to be our first dinner guests at our new house. Not only is she a super REALTOR, but I know she is going to be a super friend and horse buddy. She is talking about taking me to some of the best trail heads around. If we ever decide to sell this house, there is no doubt she will be our agent. Take my advice, she is the best!!!!Sue Miller
Kim has been in the Hendersonville market for a long time and is very knowledgeable about the area. She would always have drinks and snacks for us ready every time we went to look at houses. She was excellent with negotiations on our house to get us closing costs and lower price. We have become friends and we recently went out to her house and my daughter visited her farm and horsesJennifer West
Being first time homebuyers, we were very overwhelmed. Kim guided us the whole way, giving us 100% of what we needed to make our decision on our home! At the end, we felt we had known her for years, yet it had only been a few weeks! She's great - personally and professionally!Clay and Sharon Burchett
The thing that impressed me most about you was your commitment to understanding my personal aspirations and fitting them into sound financial judgement. You not only searched out suitable properties, you also put my personal needs in the formula and then advised me about market conditions and property prospects. You offer not just real estate expertise: you go the extra mile to tailor that expertise to the special interests of your client. You are thorough, take the time to know your customer, and also take the time to make sure the properties shown are compatible with the overall well being (both financially and emotionally) of the client. You offer integrity, insight, and intelligence, all in a non-intrusive way. I never felt “pressure” to make a quick decision, or to settle for something that was not perfect for me, and I never felt that you would be embittered if I walked away unsatisfied. I always felt you did the best you could - and that was a lot. We had lots of communications before I came to Tennessee and all your advice was well-thought-out and comprehensive.Lori Walters
We have purchased three houses from Kim Blanton, and have sold two through her. Her knowledge of the real estate market, strategies to sell, and ability to "negotiate the deal" are all impeccable. She is honest, and when investing in a home, honesty in my agent is at the top of the "must have" list. I'm certain you won't be disappointed in Kim, she is awesomeChristine Latham
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of working with Kim Blanton on the selling of our house in Fairvue Plantation. The property was listed in the million dollar plus range, which was a bit intimidating for my wife and I. We have bought and sold many homes and are familiar with some of the pitfalls in the process, so we interviewed several agents in order to ensure a smooth transaction. We were very straight forward with our expectations and our desire for someone to sell our house, not just list it and keep flyers in the bucket. Kim presented us with her credentials, an strategically aggressive marketing plan and provided us both with the since of professionalism we were seeking in a real estate agent.
Once we got on the market Kim really walked the walk. She did everything she said she would and even exceeded our expectations. She was always available for questions, gave great feedback and was very dependable. Kim not only worked with us, but for us when it came time for negotiations. Her patience and professionalism helped us to get through the process without any additional or unnecessary stress. We also appreciated Kim's candor and effective communication during the entire process. Although it was a major business transaction and we were relocating our family 600 miles away, we somehow seemed to have fun with Kim and the entire process. If you're looking for an agent who is a true professional real estate agent and not a part time sales person, Kim is the way to go. She actually sold our house not just listed it!Chris and Rebecca Costanzo
I am so glad I found you in my search for a real estate agent on the internet. Your name came up on the search engines numerous times and I found your blog. I have bought and sold numerous homes and I have to say that you are by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. You immediately responded to me when I contacted you. Your follow up and documentation for your marketing plan just blew me away. Your skills are obviously very awesome as we had a signed contract within 4 days! I have never met a realtor that took the time and interest in me and my home as you did. I would love to bring you to Wisconsin with me to help me find the perfect home here. I would recommend you for anyone who is seriously interested in selling or buying a home.Tanya Porter
Kim went the extra mile from start to finish on a land purchase for me in Goodlettsville, TN. The purchase had special circumstances that required time, direct followup and informing me via phone to closing.Ted Keys
This past summer we decided to sell our home and buy another. Not wanting to sell first and move furinture to storage/temporary living etc, then buy, we made the decision to purchase, then placed our existing home on the market. Kim helped us find a home that fit our needs in less than a month, then lited our current property. We had a suitable offer within 48 hours. No duplicate mortgages, seamless execution of both transactions. Kim is an excellent listener and understands exactly what you are looking for and doesn't waste your time by trying to "sell" you properties that work in her best interest. She wants YOU to get what YOU want!! We weill always use Kim for all our our real estate needs in the future. She is THE BEST!Gary and Beck Shirley
