"I was excited to move back to northern Michigan, but nervous about finding the just-right place to live. As soon as I met Kim, I instantly felt a sense of relief and knew she would be the one to help me find my cabin in the woods. She walked me through every step of the way, giving great feedback and suggestions whenever I asked. Kim went above and beyond with her communication and I felt like my home purchase was a priority, even on evenings and weekends! From the moment I met her to my closing--we did find my dream cabin--!--I felt supported and important. My closing felt like a beautiful celebration and I'll always remember that moment! If I ever need anyone to help me with real estate again, Kim will be the very first person I call.""I am pleased to be writing this recommendation on behalf of Kim Glerum of Remax Kalkaska. My wife and I recently moved back to northern Michigan after spending four years in northern Minnesota. We contacted Kim in early February with an anticipated move of August. Kim was very personable and willing to work with us, despite not having a face to face encounter until late July. She sent us home updates within our budget almost daily, spending countless hours prescreening homes for us. She listened to the needs of our family and tailored our home shopping experience to properties that we were both in our budget and fit our needs. In August we thought we had found the perfect home and put in our offer. Some unforeseen circumstances from the seller and our lender caused the house to come off the market. Rather than ending our working relationship, Kim worked even harder to help us find a place to rent, even offering us a space in her home until we could get our own new home. She found us storage accommodations for our stuff, and a new lender. She then worked tirelessly putting on hundreds of miles a week to help us find that new home. We literally looked at every house in our budget within a 70 mile radius of my employer. Due to the current housing market we kept putting offers in on houses and were constantly beat out. January 2019 when my wife and I were finally losing hope Kim called at 3:30 in the afternoon and said, “I have a house by the office that’s going to go on the market in the next hour, can you come look at it? I think it’s the one”. I left work early and raced to her office, where she led me to the property. When I saw it, I knew we found the one. With Kim’s advice we put our offer in that evening and had it accepted the next day. As we transitioned to the new home Kim assisted with every aspect of the home buying experience. She even handled paperwork wrapping up tax paperwork with our old home in Minnesota. Despite all the setbacks, Kim remained positive during our entire experience. She works tirelessly to ensure that all her clients feel like they are #1. What set Kim apart from anyone else in the business is her drive; she will ensure that you are satisfied with your new home purchase, even after the sale. It is without reservation that I recommend Kim Glerum for all your Real Estate needs."
"Working with Kim has been a delightful experience. Really, she is not only personable but a professional fully aware of what market to target and how to present her client's interests and home to the public. We have had our home listed with others to no avail. Kim was meticulous in her pictures and appeal. So good that we got more views through Kim than all previous real estate companies combined. Very confidential and discreet, we were made to feel like family. Can't say enough. Great sales representative."

"My husband and I met Kim in 2016 when we decided it was time to put my husband's beloved cabin on the market. We only had a couple of offers that weren't suitable to us, but when my husband passed away a year ago, I knew I had to sell sooner than later. Kim went the extra mile to see to it that I was kept informed every step of the way in the process, and with her expertise, an offer was accepted and the sale was handled quickly and professionally. Kim is very cheerful and optimistic, and dispelled any misgivings I had. It was like I was a member of her family! She is very professional, but very friendly, and makes everyone feel at ease. I highly recommend Kim!!"

"If you want a realtor who goes the extra mile, answers all your questions, answers the phone day or night - and if not, calls you back within a few minutes, always has a smile, treats you like family and sells your house fast, Kim is definitely the realtor you want!!! She is absolutely amazing!!! Out of 10 stars we give a 12!!!"

"When Kim says 'your property is my priority' that's exactly what she means. I would and will recommend her to everyone I know.
My husband had passed away and I was forced to sell my home in Mancelona. As it has been many years since I had sold a home I was not aware of all the new laws and procedures in selling. Kim helped walk me through every step and answered all of my questions every time I called her. If I had to leave a message, she did call me back right away. She also kept me up to date on everything that was going on through the whole process of selling my home.
Kim is not only a top notch real estate agent but a wonderful and honest person as well. I feel that God had put her in my life to help me through one of the hardest times of my life. I also feel that I have gained a lifelong friend.

"Kim is the best realtor I've ever worked with. Her clients are her first priority and she makes you feel like you are her most important one! She is honest, ethical, knowledgeable and to say "she goes the extra mile" is an understatement. One of the most impressive things about Kim is her technical "hands on" knowledge of the home itself - the construction. Couple that with her willingness (and eagerness) , she scheduled all inspections and was there for every one. With my work schedule, this was important to me and very much appreciated."
- Tony, Kalkaska
"We were discouraged when our first buyer backed out. Kim continued to show the house, and soon had a new buyer. She walked us through the process of selling our house. We are very pleased with the purchase price of our home, and with Kim's enthusiasm and efforts. P.S. Thank you for hanging in there with us!"
- Ellen and Jerry, Mancelona
"Our realtor Kim was very easy to work with, any concerns or questions we had about anything selling our home she said call, she was available and that she was. Very friendly and went above and beyond since we did not live in the area. Kim would take care and meet people since we were over 200 miles away. We highly recommend Kim, great person and follows through!"
- Dave and Lisa, South Boardman
"When we decided to move from AZ to Northern MI we were in contact with several Realtors throughout the state. It was very refreshing to find one that knew our personal needs and the energy to find exactly what we were looking for. Kim has gone beyond our expectations in accomplishing just that by developing a personal and professional relationship with us. By doing so she knew us well enough to sort out what exactly we wanted. She helped us purchase not just a house but our home. We would highly recommend Kim to anyone."
- Rick and Deena, Fife Lake
"Kim was a great Realtor, even though we had to wait longer than expected for closing due to others. She did everything in her power to keep us calm and make our dreams come true. I would recommend Kim to everyone. She makes you feel that you are top priority. Thanks Kim, for hanging in there."
