Blend is a brokerage for listings and sellers. You’ll be offered our award winning results and services for your home and a rare, written guarantee that says if you’re not happy you can cancel your listing for any reason at any time with no financial or contractual obligation. The broker who can offer that guarantee is doing something right, particularly since no client has used it.
Besides your listing satisfaction guarantee clause, we guarantee that all marketing we mention in our listing presentation will be implemented and we’ll checklist it off for you throughout the marketing phase. Our listings are always treated with a simple philosophy: every property is an estate. We blend seamlessly the same marketing for every home no matter its price.

Kimberly brings her award-winning track record to your real estate process and a guarantee that if you’re not happy, you can cancel your listing for any reason at any time with zero financial or contractual obligation. It’s written into your listing agreement. Unlike other brokers, she encourages her clients to be creative. Whatever you need in your real estate transaction, she’ll deliver it. All of her agents have the same philosophy: creative intelligence day and night at work to make all clients happy.
Blend was created primarily around listings. What do our sellers need to get a home sold, often with multiple offers and to a qualified buyer? Our job is to write a brilliant online presence for the seller, organize professional photography and build a narrative around the property. We use a software program that we developed to organize multiple offers into a handy worksheet for the seller to compare all buyers equally. We get sellers through the marketing and offer phases, through escrow, right down to handing them their final proceeds check.
Contracts are fast, easy and signed electronically. Buyers, we serve all your needs too from scoping out every property for sale that matches your criteria, to writing a compelling professional letter that accompanies your offer, to negotiating hard and fast for you. Those negotiating skills: buckle up. We are stealth, our knowledge about real estate runs really deep, and we intend to win your contract preferences no matter which side we’re representing.
All listings are photographed with a Nikon D5000 DSLR camera and a variety of wide angle lenses. Boom flash, tripod, lighting and a little editing will make your photos simply gorgeous. Videos are produced with a variety of special video cameras just for real estate purposes. Wow factor included.
What a difference things make! When we say staging, it can mean adding or taking away from your personal space when prepping your home for sale. Less is often more, but empty is not more. In vacant homes, we ‘surface stage’ the kitchen, fireplace mantle, front door area and bathrooms. Candles are vitally important to ambiance at open houses and they are new for every listing. To get top dollar, everything must be clean and smell great. Sparkly sells. We pay to have all listings professionally cleaned before staging and photography.
We take care of sparkly from our vast inventory of staging materials. If your home is not vacant, we work with what you have in place and often put a few things away. Voila! Your home looks bigger. It’s magic. We know what works. It take less than an afternoon to get staging done no matter the size of the property.
Blend Real Estate will continue Kimberly’s brokerage tradition of donating commission to charity. There is no limit as to what can be donated but often it’s 10% of the gross commission received by the brokerage. Right off the top. We feel very passionate about three subjects and our donations reflect this: Animals, Seniors and Blood Cancer.
We donate to many, many animal charities and Meals on Wheels. The third charity is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Saving animals, feeding seniors and trying to eradicate blood cancers take up much of our personal philanthropic time and dollars.
You’ll find us actively involved with all social media. Feel free to watch us or interact with us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. For Facebook, we make it a policy to never “friend” our clients unless they want to friend us first, and if they do then we accept immediately because we want to get to know you better. We prefer this process because our first job is to do business with you and jumping into your personal space may not be your preference. We respect your boundaries and are friendly people who mix business and pleasure all the time. Some of our social media posts are business, some are personal. Please say hello, like, follow or friend!
