Your Portland and Lake Oswego Real Estate Connection
KIM CHILDS, LICENSED OREGON BROKER, Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI)
I have been a broker with Keller Williams Realty for 10 years; previous to that I was a CPA. I was born and raised on the East side of Portland and after living in Seattle for six years, now live on the West side. My real estate business is based on integrity, and offers the highest level of service and ingenuity in the business today. During my real estate career, I have consistently been in the top 20% of sales in my office and am a member of the Agent Leadership Council at my Keller Williams office. From 2010 through 2015, I was named a “Portland Monthly 5-Star Real Estate Agent,” based on customer feedback and I am a Diamond-Platinum Member of the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors Masters Circle.

What I do to stand out from other real estate consultants:
- When representing Sellers, mycomplimentary staging is second to none in the area. Working with your home and your possessions, I use a stager to help present your home to achieve top dollar - leaving buyers with a striking first impression- online and during showings.
- When representing Buyers, I am very in tune to both your needs and wants, helping you find a home that you are very excited to own.
- While I am very much a 'people person,' after spending so many years in the accounting field I use my ingenuity to 'think outside the box' for the benefit of my clients - whether a Seller, a Buyer, of both.
Some of my recent client feedback:
"I want to thank you very much for your help with my Mom. So very excited that her offer was accepted and she is moving forward with the purchase of this condo. I know she was very nervous about this process and doing it on her own. You made the process manageable, understandable, and all around easy for her."
"How lucky we were to have you as our realtor and as a friend. We had so much trust in you, so when you said that it could sell, we were ready to move forward. Your endless attention to details made living away much easier. Thank you so much for your professionalism and your attention to detail which quickly sold this house."
"Thank you so much for your hard work in selling our house. As you said, this was a good time to sell and I could not have agreed more. Thank-you so much for your professionalism and your expertise in the market. You have done so much for us and we look forward to working with you again when we move back to the area in the future."
"You did a beautiful job on decorating the house, I love it. I like all the photos and the entire posting is great! Thank you so much for you hard work."
"Kim respected my boundaries of school district and price range. She was creative when it came to finding homes to look at, with those in mind. Also she was always willing to investigate a home that I had heard about or driven by. Most importantly, she made it fun to shop and kept her cool and got what I needed when negotiating with the sellers agent."
"As a first time home buyer Kim's expertise was spectacular. I jumped into home buying by chance, having never followed the market or really understanding the process. Kim jumped straight into my situation providing me with helpful advice and materials to get me up to speed. Once out looking at homes, Kim really listened to my hopes and did not push me into something that I clearly wasn't ready for. I'd highly recommend Kim and hope that she's still working in the area when I'm ready to sell in the future."
“We feel very fortunate that we teamed up with real estate agent extraordinaire Kim Childs of Keller Williams. Kim was able to sell our house, and help us buy a condo, through an incredible display of tenacity, attention to detail, communication skill, and knowledge of the real estate market and sales techniques. In this tough real estate market, you need a top-rate real estate agent. We strongly encourage you to consider teaming up with Kim when and if you need such a person to help you achieve your real estate goals and dreams. We’re glad we did."
"Great work! The house sold in 15 days. I know a LOT of people came through but it only took one buyer. Many thanks to you."
