Over the next 20 years or so, Kim built a multi-million dollar book of business from the ground up for the agency. Being used to hard work—and soft markets—it’s no surprise that she hit the ground running when she began her real estate career in 2006. In 2008, the year the housing bubble burst, Kim was RE/MAX Unlimited’s top producer.
In the meantime, Scott continued his career in advertising, working as a copywriter, associate creative director, content marketer and information architect/UX professional for the web. He’s helped companies large and small market everything from health insurance plans and credit cards to multi-million dollar private aircraft.
In 2012, Scott joined Kim in the real estate business. Scott works primarily behind the scenes, handling marketing and administrative tasks, while Kim works directly with customers. Kim and Scott help customers buy and sell property throughout northeast Florida, from Jacksonville’s beaches, to Nocatee, St. Augustine and St. Johns.
