A home is never a fixture, never just a building; a home is so much more. I work with human lives and human emotions with clients’ hopes, dreams, and concerns. That is how I approach it as well, and sincerely as my clients see it. For me, it comes without trying. It’s genuine and just comes naturally.
My clients consider me their trusted advisor and support system. I see myself as a thoughtful and efficient realtor with almost two decades in the business who does not push or sell. I enable my clients by providing them with all of the information in order for them to make an informative decision when they are ready.
I have helped hundreds and hundreds of buyers and sellers, and with over one billion in sales, it is critical to me to demonstrate, even with the slightest interaction, to show them that I work relentlessly on their behalf to keep them fully informed during the process and meet their needs.
I’ve seen it all. I began my real estate career in 2003, at the height of the housing market. “ Those days gave a false sense of the job- you’d stick a sign in the yard, and it would practically sell while you were doing it., By 2007 my business was on a trajectory of success; however, a bad auto accident knocked me out of work for many, many months. My best friend (who worked with me and is now my right hand in the business) sacrificially stepped in, helping me keep my business afloat, which I did through physical therapy, and many doctor’s appointments, every day a struggle.
The housing bubble burst when I was getting back on my feet. Like many agents, I had to decide whether to switch careers or dig deeper.
I was determined to stay in business and educated myself about foreclosures, distressed properties, and short sales. I learned all the niches at all levels of real estate to broaden my experience for the clients I worked for.
But mainly in those tough years, I learned to listen and understand. I absorbed clients’ stories and made it personal to help in any way I could. My business is about affecting lives, and I do not take that lightly.

FROM THE BIG BOX TO BOUTIQUE BROKERAGE.
After many years of being with, what I call the Big Box or Franchise companies, I opened my own Boutique Brokerage because I wanted my business to be more personal, hands-on, and service-oriented. My boutique brokerage provides International exposure with two locations; Located in Delaware, in the heart of Middletown, Delaware. My love for the water drew me to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where I gravitated to opening a second office—the Hamptons of The Mid-Atlantic.
My commitment to helping those in the community led to starting:
“Thyme’s Heart Fund” which makes a donation from every transaction to shelters to allow them to help those in need to get into a home and or pay utility bills or just groceries.
Blue Therapy, those that matter most.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 33 years; I am a mother of four and, thus far, a G Ma of four adorable little ones. My relationship with God, my savior, is extremely important to me. He is why I do what I do. I love spending time with my family, boating, spending time at the beach, and just about anything to do with the water, I call it Blue Therapy, and I believe living or owning a home on the water or in a water town, will bring so much joy to your life.
The real measure of success.
Although I have consistently been in the top 2% over the years and have won countless awards, I do not measure my success by awards. I measure it by the satisfaction of my clients.
Here are just a few comments on what my clients are saying:
“Kim Simpson is the most honest realtor I have ever met, She truly cares about clients and is always looking out for their best interest. We spend over a year dragging Kim to one house after another. Kim was always extremely energetic, helpful, funny, and defiantly never tried to push us into buying until we were 100% ready. It is extremely unusual to find such an honest, caring realtor who is truly looking out for their client, but that is what Kim Simpson is all about”
“Kim did an outstanding job with the sale of my grandparent’s estate. I think we ran into every roadblock imaginable and she tackled them all. I could never thank her enough for guiding our family through a very difficult time. If she was to get frustrated through all the difficulty, we never knew it. Kim is very kind, uplifting, and knows her job. If there was something she may not be certain about, she will figure it out or guide you in the right direction. I would refer Kim to anyone. Hands down the best!!”
