Kim Rozendaal has lived and worked in the Namoi region for 15 years and has more than 11 years’ experience in the real estate business.
Kim knows just how special your home is to you and how important it is to find the perfect property.
“Selling your property is a major decision and possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Kim who has just launched her new business, KR Property.
“I know that selling or looking for a property can be an emotional experience and an apprehensive one, but I want to help smooth the path.
“I love seeing big smiles on people’s faces when the keys are being handed over or the ‘sold’ sticker is put on a sign.”
This week, Kim’s dream of offering customers a modern, no-nonsense, professional, mobile real estate service has become a reality with KR Property’s first listing hitting the market.
It’s Kim’s dream to find people their dream property, and she thinks there’s plenty of attractive options in the Namoi Valley.
“I’m feeling excited and exhilarated, and I’ve been really humbled by the community’s support when it comes to starting my own business.
“I’m a bit of a perfectionist but people have said ‘you’ve got this girl’.
“My first listing is the property of someone I used to work with, it’s on Eulah Creek Road and it’s got the most incredible views of the ranges.
“It’s a renovated, five-bedroom country home – a great place for horse lovers with lots of good soil and feed.”
Kim is a vibrant and energetic agent who offers a unique and local insight.
She has built up a strong network, across the North West district, over the past 15 years spanning landholders, agents, valuers, financial institutions, brokers and investors.
Kim’s called on her extensive experience in real estate as well as her in-depth knowledge of the region to build a business from scratch that she feels will deliver for both buyers and sellers.
“I will see the transaction through from the beginning to the end.”
KR Property’s mobile real estate business also offers a modern twist in the forever changing and increasingly virtual world we live in.
“I am always adapting,” said Kim.
“Old school bricks and mortar offices are of little value to the seller.
“The world as we know it is constantly evolving and so is real estate.
“We can get our groceries home-delivered, UBER everything, mobile dog washing – so why not offer convenient mobile property services that come to you.
“We do not try to market properties from a glass office which only adds unnecessary costs to the client.
“With laptops, smart phones and social media tools, KR Property travels to you to sell your home or to show and find you a new one.
“I also offer home-styling.”
Kim said she cared more about meeting the needs of sellers rather than “building a business empire” and it’s that ethos that inspired her to open a virtual and mobile business that has a more personal approach.
“I didn’t want to be a corporate real estate agency and face more ‘red tape’ and company regulations that restrict my ability to be innovative or flexible.
“KR Property offers instant communication with the vendor and buyer, allowing for quick and cutting-edge customisation in marketing your property,” said Kim.
“Running a virtual and mobile business means KR Property can be available any time as opposed to the traditional business model.
“My vision in starting KR Property’s new mobile real estate business is to offer my customers a transparent and dedicated sales experience.
“My primary focus is to ensure the community thrives through home, land, and business ownership.
“I understand that each client has different needs.”
Some might say it’s a brave move to open a business during a pandemic but it’s a mission Kim didn’t want to put on ice forever.
“Working in real estate is a career I love but you’ve also got to be really committed.
“There’s no doubt you’ve got to love this game and particularly in a small town – you’ve got to get results, and I like getting results for people,” said Kim.
“It makes the job worthwhile when you see both parties – the seller and the buyer – walk away with smiles on their faces.”
Kim is optimistic about the Namoi Valley’s future and its real estate market.
Narrabri is the town where she chose to raise her family and it’s a place she thinks holds great promise.
“The wheels are always turning in Narrabri because we have such a variety of industries – the agricultural sector, the industrial sector is just growing and mining.
“It’s a buyer’s market at the moment but if projects are given the green light and develop such as the Santos project and Inland Rail – we will see a huge rise in property sales.
“If you’re wondering what will happen to property in 2020–2021 you are not alone.
“Of course it’s already May, which means a quarter of 2020 has already gone, and what a tumultuous year it’s been in property.
“During social distancing , the number of new properties listed for sale initially dropped, no surprises there.
“Sellers were on strike waiting to see what’s going to happen to the markets.
“But since then, the number of new properties listed for sale has been increasing, showing increased confidence among vendors.
“Now is the time to take action and set yourself for the opportunities that will present themselves as a the market moves on.”To order photos from this page click here
