NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beloved song and dance man Eddie Cantor surely had Kim Blanton in mind when he so famously said: It takes twenty years to make an overnight success. This month, Blanton celebrates twenty years as a professional REALTOR® and there's no denying her career success. Blanton, a long-time Nashville resident affiliated with RE/MAX Elite and Homes by Kim Blanton, reinvented herself two decades ago after a high flying career in private and business aviation management and sales. She relied on the same skills she honed while owning her own aviation business -- unparalleled client service and attention to detail -- in mastering the real estate industry. And while it took twenty years to reach her pinnacle, in many ways it seems like the blink of an eye. Her industry experience and expertise has allowed Blanton to develop specialty markets for discerning clients. These include horse properties for equestrians, luxury homes for the higher end and affluent buyer, and lake homes for those who seek the tranquility of waterfront living.
"Time passes quickly when you love what you're doing," Blanton said. "But what's even more important is that my clients feel that same commitment while working with me." Loyal client Christine Latham of White House, TN emphatically agrees. "Kim Blanton routinely does something out of the ordinary to make something extra-ordinary happen for her buyers and sellers," she stated. "That is who she is personally and professionally. And I should know.......my husband Mark and I have engaged her in seven real estate transactions in the past twenty years." Chellsey Woolever, also a repeat client and now living in Washington state, adds that Blanton's attributes are rare in the industry. "We had limited funds and were very picky when we first began working with Kim back in 1997," Woolever said. "It took us two years to find our dream home, and Kim stood with us every step of the way. Her trust, patience and personalized service is unparalleled. I wish she could find us a home to buy here in Washington!" An affiliated broker with RE/MAX Elite, Blanton's office is the number one RE/MAX location in the Southeast Region. She has earned numerous sales achievement awards in the last two decades, including elite recognition in the top two percent of REALTORS®. "I bet I know every square mile of Middle Tennessee by now, and every state road between Kentucky and Alabama," Blanton jokes with her ever present smile. "Why? Because I've driven them all as I seek out the perfect properties for my clients."
To commemorate this special anniversary, Blanton has built the most comprehensive real estate website available today, providing home buyers with 33 -- and counting -- specialized search filters and niche selection criteria they won't find elsewhere. One particular feature allows subscribers to receive new listings via email minutes after they become available on the market. And to help protect sensitive client contact information? The site has earned the trusted SSL Digital Security Certificate.The celebration continues in the coming months, as Blanton plans to announce a client appreciation drawing and prize giveaway to mark the occasion."It took me twenty years of hard work," Blanton adds. "I want to show my gratitude to all who helped me get here."
