"Kim helped my husband and I purchase a new home all the way from Virginia. She is the portrait of professionalism and made a potentially stressful transaction so fun and enjoyable." - Kim T.


Trained as an architect and designer, I have redesigned residences and constructed coffee houses on two continents. I believe in good design, and that good design contributes to good living. I enjoy helping others envision their goals by helping them envision their spaces. Whether you love Midcentury Modern and Mies or Tudor and half-timber, I will help you find the home to fit the Zeitgeist of your life.

I am a native Coloradan and grew up in southeast Denver. As an adult, I have lived other places; but, I always come back to Denver. The people, the weather, the mountains, my family – Denver is my home.

As a proud Bonnie Brae resident, I love frequenting the local spots with my husband and 2 boys. My family always goes for Bonnie Brae Ice Cream in honor of the first snowfall. My pup and I love a good walk around Wash Park. My husband and I would rather watch the Bronco game (or the World Cup!) at the Tavern on Old South Gaylord than at home.

With my skills and background in design and architecture, I provide my clients with value added services in every real estate transaction. Whether it is staging your property for sale, or envisioning a life in the home you might buy, invest in, or renovate, I want to help you see the spaces both as a real estate professional, and as a designer. I am a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), a member of the National Association of Realtors and the Denver Metro Association of Realtors. My skills in negotiation, combined with the leading home search technology of 8z and the 8z commitment to client-centered business, I will help you make an informed decision on one of the biggest decisions of your life.

Real estate is not just about finding a property. It’s about finding a home. It’s where your proverbial heart is, where you hang your hat, and where countless numbers of life events, minute to major, will unfold. It is house and it is architecture. It is family and community. It is joy and it is yours. Home. Let’s find it together.

Kim sold our home and was professional and efficient throughout the entire process. She is very knowledgeable of market trends and was able to guide us through the decisions we had to make as far as pricing, improvements, etc. She was always available no matter the time of day or night. She was always kind, patient, and courteous with us! We highly recommend her!

Kim is at once engaging, thoughtful and professional. With her practiced eye and thorough research, she's a great source for anyone searching for their next home or investment property. With her background in architecture and design, she will quickly pinpoint the key features that are both desirable in the current market, and timeless to outlast the trends. Kim is the complete package, and I can recommend her with enthusiasm and confidence.

Kim worked with me on the redesign of apartment rentals in an historic city center. She understands how design, craft, construction and economics play into housing markets, and how luxury properties should look and feel. Her education as an architect and her experience in high-end design make her uniquely suited to help clients envision spaces and recognize value and quality in a property. She is a tireless worker, unfazed by a fast-paced, changing environment. She handles all her tasks with professionalism and grace.
