Kim Roberts, Agent
Kim moved with her family to Ocala when she was just 9 years old. Growing up in Ocala, she has witnessed the growth in the surrounding area as well. Kim was fortunate to take part in various student and cultural exchange programs, which, in addition to providing her with a variety of travel and cultural experiences, allowed her to grasp the Spanish language.
Kim brings a unique skill set to the Terra Vista Home Team. She spent the first half of her career in the travel industry. She honed her skills to work with the public as a Cruise Ship Hostess and Shore Excursion Manager at sea; a Travel Agent; and a Cast Member at Epcot – all of which required superior customer service and interaction.
Kim has a knack for technology which opened doors for her at American Airlines’ Sabre division, where she held a variety of roles in travel technology. She moved through the ranks as a trainer, and onward into various account management and director roles, requiring and developing skills in vendor and customer relationship management, financial analysis, and contract negotiations. All skills that she now calls on daily as a Realtor.
Since leaving Ocala, Kim has moved over 15 times. During her travel career, Kim averaged a move every 2 years to many great cities in the US, which sparked another passion: Real Estate. Moving that often makes one quite familiar with the process and a great resource! When it came time to leave the world of travel, Kim decided to pursue her passion for real estate.
Beginning her real estate career in Tampa in 2006, her timing was not the best – starting in real estate at the top of the Florida boom, just in time to experience the market free fall. It was tough, but she persevered, survived the market, and received one of the best real estate educations possible. She moved through the ranks of the brokerage where, in addition to running her own real estate business, she became Training Director and Mentor overseeing the training of new agents.
Kim found the key to her success, regardless of the market, was something that had always served her well: her abilities to listen, develop relationships and to put her customer’s needs first.
Desiring to move closer to family in Ocala, Kim joined the New Home Sales Team at the Villages of Citrus Hills. She fell in love with the community and made her home in Citrus Hills as well. Drawing on her skills, Kim sold new homes in Citrus Hills by establishing strong relationships with her customers, focusing on their needs, and providing exceptional follow-up and customer service. She has now brought her knowledge of Citrus Hills New Home Sales, back to her first love – general real estate – with Berkshire Hathaway and the Terra Vista Home Team.
Kim looks forward to working with you toward a win-win solution, whether it is selling your current home or welcoming you to Citrus Hills and helping you find the right home: Be it a new or pre-existing home. She has the knowledge, skills, and integrity to guide you through the process with a successful outcome. Kim is looking forward to being of service.
Kim was our realtor (we were her client) when we were considering whether to make the Villages of Citrus Hills our retirement home. She listened to what we were interested in and she was very helpful in showing us model homes to help us make our decision. She patiently answered all my very long list of questions and made the whole process seem easy. I strongly recommend her as a realtor!
Kim was my realtor when I was looking for a home. She provided advice and a number of resources to help me think through options that would meet my needs within my budget. When she found out that my offer may compete with another offer, she made a great suggestion to write a personal letter to the seller. This ultimately sealed the deal. Being self-employed, she also partnered with my loan officer to secure the necessary details. Kim is trustworthy, practical, honest, and truthful. Her years of experience are invaluable for anyone interested in purchasing a home – whether it’s their 1st or 21st.
Knowledgeable, responsive, professional and resourceful! These are phrases that come to mind when I think about Kim. She has a unique ability to uncover buyer’s and seller’s motivations and priorities, while providing just the right amount of guidance, at the right time. What I value so much about Kim is her patience and dedication to meeting her clients’ needs. Kim’s deep industry knowledge and experience, combined with her perseverance, enables her to find solutions for virtually any potential situation that may arise in a real estate transaction. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kim for many years; she is a highly valued and trusted resource who always has her clients’ best interests in mind.
My wife and I engaged in a long “house-hunt” and were very particular about location, price, size, school district, kitchen and bath appointments, etc. The search would have been impossible without Kim’s knowledge and experience. Her patience, professionalism and certitude of success were invaluable.
Kim also assisted us in suggesting financing options for our purchase.
Though the home search at times may have tried our own patience, Kim was always persistent, positive and patient. Her ability to understand our needs gave us confidence that we could find the real estate we were looking for. We were very pleased with the results and would recommend Kim for any real estate transaction.
From the first phone call, Kim was the most professional and valuable resource to assist us with finding our home in Florida. Her knowledge of the market was valuable to us, from what to look for to what to be aware of when buying. We never felt pressured. She was always there for us every call or every time we wanted to see the houses again. Kim follows through on all levels. She stayed connected with us without ever feeling pushy. And you just can’t help but like her – we just hit it off in so many ways.

This was my first experience selling a home and it was during an emotional time. Kim made the entire process painless. She guided me through all of the steps necessary to bring the house to the level needed to close the sale. She was always available if I had any questions and always provided documentation quickly. I have a great deal of respect for Kim. She is personable, thorough and I highly recommend her to be your agent! Thank you, Kim.
