Thank you for visiting www.kimskaar.com.
This is really not about me and it’s all about you. It’s how I can help you make the best decision of your life and become an owner in Lake Chelan just like hundreds of other clients I
have worked with. I have never worked with someone to acquire property in the Chelan
Valley and have them tell me years later that this was a mistake. You will love living here or
spending more time here with your family and create memories that will last a lifetime. Here
is my story:
We sold our waterfront home on Lake Sammamish in 1996 and moved to Lake Chelan. I commuted to Bellevue for 7 years for work and in 2003 I became a full time Realtor at Coldwell Banker LCP and gave up traveling each week. My wife, Robyn has a retail store called Willow in downtown Chelan.
Education: I graduated from California State University at Northridge in Southern California. My degree was a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a major in Advertising and a minor in Sales and Marketing.
Work History: Never had a guaranteed paying job. I started my own advertising business called AdCenter, Inc. based in Bellevue, Wa. in 1980 and worked there until 2003. We did graphics, printing, photography, screen printing, embroidery and promotional products. After 23 years of this I wanted another challenge. From 2003 thru today I have been a full time Real Estate Broker in Lake Chelan.
Family: Married 38 years.. We have three sons and two black Labradors that keep us active.
Hobbies: Anything to do with Lake Chelan. Waterskiing, boating, fishing, hunting, snow shoeing, camping and just being out of doors.
