Kim has been with us since September of 2013 and has done everything from a receptionist to billing. Currently, when she is not holding down the fort as Office Manager, she acts as our courier to deliver documents to the courthouse on her 2016 Harley Davidson. She doesn’t mind the driving at all.  Kim is a real people person and will keep everyone laughing.  Whenever the opportunity arises she loves taking her trike to the Mountains to get a breath of fresh air.

She has worked in real estate since 1994 and has seen the transformation of the real estate market and the closing process.

She is beloved by buyers ACROSS THE WORLD!

Tammy Ellerby

Tammy started with us in June 2015 as our receptionist. But her attention to detail gave her the opportunity for growth within our firm. After two and a half years as a Real Estate Assistant, she was promoted to Real Estate Paralegal in November 2018.  She proves she is dedicated daily and in 2017, to gain more knowledge and understanding in the field, she earned her Real Estate License!  As a licensed Realtor she understands the process from an Agent’s perspective as well, giving her the advantage of knowing the process from writing the contract through pre-closing, closing and post-closing procedures. When not working, she loves to spend her time doing outdoor activities with her family including camping, fishing, boating, campfires and of course, beach days!
