Hello! I'm Kimberly Yates and I have been a Realtor at Century 21 Results Realty Services since 2006.By putting my clients first and working tirelessly to accommodate their needs, in 2007 I was awarded "Rookie of the Year" honors by not only my Results Realty Brokerage, but also by The 400 North Board of Realtors. That was followed by Agent of the Year in 2008, and multiple Agent of the Month and Listing Agent of the Month recognitions, among others. For outstanding performance in the Century 21 system, in 2012 I was named to Century 21's Centurian Team. All of my efforts culminated last year with the Yates Estates team receiving honors for the Top Team Pinnacle Award for Century 21 Results Realty Services, and being honored by The 400 North Board of Realtors for Most Units Sold - team category, with over $29 million in real estate sales. Returning customers and referrals from happy clients contribute significantly to the rapidly expanding business and brand recognition of the Yates Estates GA team.
This is all a testament to how I go the extra mile to help my clients by utilizing my steadfast work ethic and vast knowledge, experience, and success in all aspects of real estate, from buyer assistance to listings, market analysis, communities, distressed properties, re-sales, new home construction, skillful negotiations, and more.

Point of View: the real estate market has a lot to offer both buyers and sellers. Buyers can take advantage of low prices and advantageous interest rates, and sellers can reap the benefit of low inventory levels-if priced right, homes are moving quickly and sometimes with multiple offers. In summary, it is a great time to buy or sell homes! As a Certified Distressed Property Expert, I help people explore their options and avoid foreclosure. Market strategy: provide the most comprehensive research to price your home correctly, market the home to create maximum exposure which creates showings and ultimately offers. Market areas: Forsyth, North Fulton, Cherokee, East Cobb Background: over 25 years in real estate with an extensive background in sales, sales management, market research, marketing and public relations. I have worked all along most of the east coast from South Florida to Northern Virginia with developers, builders and general brokerage firms. Education: BBA and MBA in Marketing from Kennesaw State University.
I love calling Atlanta home. Growing up in Dunwoody in the 70's and 80's. I have watched a dramatic transformation of this beautiful city. My passion for real estate developed as a child. I watched my dad buy land and build strip malls. Which at the time no one thought people would shop at. Little did they know...that one would be on every corner today. I credit much of my success to the value of hard work he instilled upon me as a child and to my loving and supportive family. I am a dedicated full time Realtor.
I have a extensive sales and marketing back ground. After graduating from Brenau University. I became a sales supervisor for a national broker. I managed the health and beauty care lines for national and Fortune 500 companies. In addition to my marketing and sales experience. I have a background in interior design and home staging. I am a knowledgeable agent in all aspects of the business.
