        Outstanding. We have owned 24 properties. Kim is by far the most outstanding agent we have experienced nation wide and internationally.

          She is excellent in what she does. Unfortunately their are a lot of bad, poorly trained Realtors out there. I know because I've hired them and then fired them! Kim is very thorough with ad preparation which is key to getting your house sold. Kim is tough! She might offend some sellers when she tells you what you need to do to get your house ready to sell. De-clutter, remove pictures of family members and ANYTHING that becomes a distraction to the potential buyer while looking at your house. Just common sense but what many Realtors fail to advise the seller he/she needs to do to get their home sold. In addition to selling homes, Kim should be teaching Realtor classes on how to do that job❗ She is just THAT good.

            Kim is the best! We have used Kim to sell and buy, and both times she far exceeded our expectations. She will go above and beyond for her clients, with her many years of real estate experience! She is not in it to just sell your home, or to find you any home available...she wants you to have the perfect home, and perfect buyer for you! You can trust Kim, she knows this business inside and out and she will put in the work!! Thank you Kim!!!

            helped me buy a home

              Undoubtedly the best selling and purchasing experience we've ever been through! Provide her the necessary information, get out of the way and let her work. We've recommended her multiple times and will work with her again when the time is right.

              helped me buy a home

                I highly recommend Kim as a realtor to use when purchasing or selling a home! She's done both for us! Kim is highly responsive, has always accommodated us and has provided us expert advice. She is a real pro and a super nice person! Her website is the best search tool I've seen for home shopping selection criteria and you'll be blown away by all the support she provides you when selling your home, including providing a stager and professional photographer.

                  We interviewed realtors when we decided to sell our home in Goodlettsville and move to Florida. Kim was our final choice because she had done her homework and priced our house reasonably, she was very personable, and my husband and I felt very comfortable with her. We made the right choice. Kim sold our house at a price that we were happy with. She kept us informed all along the way and has kept up with us since the sell several years ago. You won't go wrong with Kim.

                  helped me buy a home

                    My husband and I are first time home buyers, so we were completely overwhelmed at beginning this process. We were referred to Kim through a family friend, and have not been disappointed. She has tru ly treated us like we are her first priority, and only has our best interest in mind. She has been a wealth of information to us as first time buyers, making sure we know exactly how everything works, and ensuring that we are comfortable throughout the entire process, without feeling any stress or pressure. She has been such a joy to work with and we will definitely be using Kim for all of our future home buying and selling needs!

                    listed and sold my home

                      We recently sold our home in Goodlettsville with the help of Kim Blanton. We chose Kim after reviewing realtors in our area. Wow! We were extremely pleased with her professionalism from the moment she walked in our door. Her presentation was stellar as was her communication with us throughout the entire process. We were out of the country during the sale and she handled it with ease. The entire process was painless and she was a joy to work with. If you need a realtor, she's your girl! -The Tally's

                    • 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) didnt 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 didnt 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. Im glad that I listened to you, especially now that were 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 endeavors

                    • 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!

                    • 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!!!!

                    • 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!

                    • 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.

                    • 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.

                    • 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 horses

                      - Jennifer West
                    • 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 awesome

                    • 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. 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.

                    • 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!!

                    • 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 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!
