President Magellan, Inc. Real Estate & Relocation


Not too many agents get into real estate right out of college as a single mom, without a sphere of influence, previous exposure to an entrepreneurial influence or a trust fund to fall back on while growing a business. Even more rare are the number of agents who become a top producer their first year in business and ‘Rookie of the Year’ for the largest real estate company in their town and all 17 of their offices while maneuvering interest rates peaking at over 18%. Back then it was almost unheard of to consistently generate $500K, $700K and $800K+ in sales monthly, which few agents can claim even with today’s escalating market values. But Kim did it! Of course, that wasn’t enough of an accomplishment, so she went on to open her first real estate company two years after getting licensed.

A 35+ year veteran of the real estate industry, Kim owns Magellan®, Inc. Real Estate and Relocation and Magellan® Referral Associates, all headquartered in Rochester, NY. She is a certified instructor, author of new construction CE courses and creator of several strategic, proprietary training programs, tools and techniques that competitively allow agents to win more referrals, listings, and sales.

In 2023, Kim developed an app to provide agents directions on how to succeed in real estate and decided to begin sharing some of her programs with a national audience. What makes her so unique and appealing? As Kim says, “I don’t teach from textbook. I teach from real life experience!” She doesn’t present anything that she hasn’t lived, and experienced success… all of it self-taught. Her passion for real estate is infectious and will light the minds of agents on fire with ‘outside-the-box’ approaches to doing business designed to increase agent sales and annual ROI.

In summary, Kim is not only an entrepreneur, but a visionary, industry thought leader, speaker, trainer, mentor, consultant, author, columnist, radio host, inventor, and humanitarian activist.
