Growing up in a military family, I moved about every four years. My first exposure to Florida living happened while in elementary school. Since then, I have either lived in Florida, or I was making my way back to its sunny shores. As an adult, I have been a resident of Pensacola for over 25 years. I love Pensacola. I love the people, climate, and southern charm. I love our beautiful sugar white sands and the emerald Gulf water.

    It brings me joy to help people sell their homes and find their new oases. I love helping first time home buyers traverse through the steps of achieving the American dream of home ownership. For my out of state clients, whether selling their home here or relocating to our area, I feel a commitment and obligation to help (my Gypsy upbringing makes it easy for me to understand how difficult it can be to relocate). I ease the stress and worry of a long distance sale or purchase. My clients trust me. I do everything to earn and maintain their trust. For me, "Building a Relationship on Solid Ground" is more than a motto for my business, it is my life.

    Let me help you with all of your real estate needs. I look forward to meeting you, your family, and friends.

    My Client Testimonials

    Phenomenal! I would recommend Kim to anyone looking to purchase a property. She's very helpful and sincere.She answered all my questions as thoroughly as possible. Since I was not local and resided out of state, Kim helped line so many things I did not have the wherewithal to accomplish as efficiently.
    Kim was excellent in every aspect of selling our home. She answered any question we had and guided us through selling a home for the first time. I highly recommend her as a realtor.
    Kim paid close attention to details that the we considered important in a home, she responded quickly and professionally to our requests and needs, and she respectfully brought attention to numerous points of consideration for us in the homes we viewed. She was a pleasure to work with and placed high value on our happiness and satisfaction. She wanted us to find a place that suited us best, and that we could call "home." She did an exceptional job!
    Kim is absolutely amazing, I not only feel that I met a great agent, but also made a friend. It didn't matter what time of night or what was going on in her personal life, she was always there to go to bat for me or answer any questions I had. Highly recommended.
    Kim was a pleasure to work with in selling my home in Pensacola. She communicated well and kept me informed all along the way. I would recommend Kim to anyone that wants to sell or buy a home in the Pensacola area. She did an excellent job of marketing the property and it sold in the first week!
    Kim came highly recommended by a friend of mine and I can see why and I'm so glad I went with her! My situation was somewhat unusual as I purchased my new home in Pensacola from San Diego. Her integrity, responsiveness, loyalty and follow through made me feel at ease during the whole process! She was more than a realtor, she was a trusted agent and friend who walked me through the entire process!
    Coming from out of state, we were a little apprehensive about buying a second home so far away...and then we met Kim!! She accommodated our out of state needs regarding travel back and forth and long distance communication. Kim also provided extra "hand-holding" for us because we had very little local area knowledge and zero experience with Florida real estate laws. Overall, Kim was an excellent buffer for all the normal ups and downs that comes with buying a home and all the while we knew she was pulling for us to be successful. Anyone ready to buy in the Pensacola area would benefit from Kim's expertise!
    Kim was fantastic throughout the home buying process! I spoke with quite a few real estate agents when I started the searching process, but I really liked her responsiveness and her professional demeanor more than the others I contacted, and I definitely feel like I made the right decision by using her as my buyers agent. She was great at setting up appointments that worked with my odd schedule, and she was very helpful at providing me with alternative options to look at that fit my style and budget. I can get a little bit frustrated and anxious, but she was fantastic at working with me and calming my nerves throughout the process. I spent months working with Kim, and I feel like I gained a friend through this process. She really went above and beyond my expectations, and I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends starting the home buying process.
    50 houses and 6 months later, she helped me find my dream home. Always polite, very knowledgeable in and around her area and she was always there when I needed her. She made my first time home buying experience wonderful. Highly recommend to any and all!
    Kim helped me when I certainly was not looking out for myself. I am so glad I had someone that gave me personal attention! I don't think I could have found a better agent, person, or friend as Kim has been. It's important to have someone looking out for your best interests and helping you through each process in purchasing a home. I have been recommending Kim to everyone I know whether their looking to buy or sell. Also just to tell friends what a wonderful experience I had even if my friends are not in the market!
    Kim was very friendly and made sure we found the home that was the best fit for myself and my daughter. She was detail oriented with my home contract and closing documents to ensure everything was correct and to my best interest. She ensured we got the home of our dreams, in the area we wanted, and within our price range. I would recommend Kim to anyone in the market of purchasing or selling a home. I will also use her when/if I am in the market to purchase a new home and sell my current home.
    When we requested information on available homes in the Pensacola, FL area she was the first agent to respond, even though she was out of town. She sent my wife multiple listings and kept personally in touch with us about what we were looking for. Upon my wife's visit in town she was very accommodating and showed many homes, listened to our needs and helped us find the perfect home as we relocate to Florida. She was very organized and extremely professional. We would recommend her for ANYONE looking to buy or sell a property in Northwest Florida.
    Kim was incredible! Hands down the BEST realtor we have ever had the pleasure of working with! We highly recommend Kim Kortleever to anyone looking for real estate. Her personal attention to our search for our home was immeasurable. We will call upon Kim for all of our future real estate transactions. She was awesome!!! Thanks for everything Kim!
    I've bought a lot of homes over the years, and Kim is the most responsive agent I have ever worked with! She definitely values your time and pays attention to the qualities of a home that are important to you. Kim knows Pensacola real estate and I would recommend her to anyone looking for the best agent in town!
    Kim is an all-around professional. She treated my wife and I with respect and had our best interest in mind. We were treated like her brother and sister.
    Kim always seemed to know what my wife and I needed. Whether we needed her to stand back and let my wife and I work through our decisioning process, or be our champion by getting paperwork processed properly and quickly. I recommend anybody to choose Kim.
    Knowledge of housing market and area is great. She always kept our interest and our conditions as a factor when negotiating a house for us. In addition, to making sure that the customers gets the house they want, Kim adds a level costumer service that includes making sure that the, you as the buyer are happy and satisfied with the house. As a seller and buyer I recommend Kim.

    My Experience

    • I have had the good fortune of helping many local and out of state people sell and purchase homes across the Panhandle. The furthest away to date: Puerto Rico. Many have purchased site unseen.

I believe the saying, Home is where the heart is.
