"My reputation and livelihood is sustained by referrals from clients who have benefited from working with me. The sharing of the experience with family and friends is exclusively how I've grown my business over the last 26+ years." - Kim Waters
The real estate business is largely local in nature, which explains why independent, locally branded firms such as The Norton Agency continue to dominate. The entity that connects all the country's top locally branded real estate firms is Leading Edge Real Estate Companies of the World, whose affiliate companies (over 600 firms with 5,000 offices and 150,000 sales associates in 35 countries worldwide) sell nearly $300 billion annually in the U.S., more than any national franchise brand. They are also the NUMBER ONE companies in terms of sales volume in more of the top 88 US markets than any other national organization.
I work with my husband, David Stovall, who specializes in Commercial and Investment Real Estate, and my sister, Kayla Shoemake, a millennial who specializes in helping buyers of that generation and targeting that segment in marketing our listings. Our mother, Joyce Waters, also a Realtor, has worked with me since 2002. Residential real estate and all that pertains to it is my love and passion.
