With Mothers Day just around the corner, we thought what better time to showcase one of Coldwell Banker Innovations most achieved agents and mothers. Kim Lewis joined the Coldwell Banker Innovations team in 2003 and since then she has achieved multiple awards such as the 2015 International Presidents Circle Award for being in the top percentage of sales in the nation, and the 2016 International Presidents Elite Award for being in the top percentage of sales worldwide in the Coldwell Banker system.
Kim Lewis joined the Coldwell Banker team after spending years in the retail industry. From there she learned a lot about marketing and sales, she spent years traveling and opening new retail locations all over the nation. Her success was not undervalued, she was offered multiple managerial positions in these areas but decided to stay in Maryland to achieve her ultimate goal of getting married and having a family.
After she made this decision Kim was on the hunt for a new career. In 2003 Kim started with Coldwell Banker Innovations as a Licensed Real Estate Assistant where she processed contracts for various clients such as construction companies, and new businesses. Her “behind the scenes” experience has helped her succeed in the real estate business. Now, 14 years later, she is rocking the real estate industry as an independent agent. Kim states, “I absolutely love my job, I love it.” And says that Coldwell Banker Innovations is her second family.
Among being a successful career woman and a remarkable real estate agent, Kim Lewis is the mother of two beautiful girls, Nora 11 years, and Lauren 9 years. Kim states that a work- life balance can be very difficult. Kim knows firsthand how hard it can be to balance a career, be a great role model, and be a mother. This is why we deem her, and every other working mother out there “Super Mom.”
Between PTA meetings, pageants, tennis, volleyball lessons, and dance classes it’s hard to find time to blink, but Kim has managed to go above and beyond, building meaningful relationships with her clients and finding the time to vacation in Disney World. Did you know Kim landed one of her biggest deals while in line at Disney?
In conclusion, being a mother is not easy, it’s exhausting, it’s stressful, and you don’t know if you’re doing the right thing, or the completely wrong thing, there’s no how-to book when it comes to parenting. Take a lesson from Kim though; you can be a successful businesswoman and an amazing mother at the same time.
Thank you, Kim Lewis, for taking time out of your busy schedule to share your story with us.
Happy Mothers day to all the inspiring mothers there!
