Not Your Typical Realtor. Not Your Typical Realtor Bio.
You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard -- stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want -- real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now. We’ll start with the most important one first:
Is your name for REAL?
Yep. And don't feel bad for asking this first. It's a question I get frequently. And the answer to the typical follow up question:
WHY would your parents DO THAT to you?
They didn’t. They love me very much and gave me the CUTEST name of Mindy Bea Kimble. BUT I chose to marry Josh Kidney AND change my name all on my own because 1) I love him and 2) I love making people smile - and my name definitely does that. Added bonus: GREAT conversation starter!
Will you return my calls and emails?
Yes. Without question.
I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible. While I try my very best to make every client feel as if they are my only client, I’m usually working with a dozen or so people at any given time.
I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?
This probably depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they'll probably say "yes". A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes. Most people will tell you I'm a good seed. I don't have a 100% love ratio, and I'm okay with that because I know I'm doing everything I can to provide the best service in our industry and that can bring out a few haters.
Here's what I can tell you: I'm honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of my core values. Want to really find out if I’m a jerk? Mess with one of those people.
Do you have experience doing exactly what I need?
Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing. These are strong suits of mine:
Working with relocating families
First-time and move-up buyers
New construction buyers
If your goal or situation isn't represented on that list, don't worry. Contact me anyway. If I can't help, I can get you referred to an another fantastic agent who can. I've been actively selling real estate in Nebraska since 2007 and have a great network of contacts locally and throughout the U.S.
What kind of work are you really good at?
On a personal level, I'm pretty good at cooking. I make the BEST nachos and own exactly 7 slow-cookers, which I use on the regular. (My husband will tell you I own 14 and he's exaggerating. Drama. Queen.). Also, I'm not too shabby at binge watching shows with my husband, when I've got a free night.
On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that I’ve developed over the years:
Listening. Unfortunately, it’s a lost art these days.
Understanding my clients' needs and working to achieve the outcome they want.
Communicating clearly with everyone involved in a real estate transaction.
Here are a handful of real estate & professional accomplishments I'm proud of:
