A little about me

Real estate has been a huge part of my life, for most of my life, and my passion is to serve others. I've worked in almost every aspect of the business including banking, title & escrow, transaction & team management and brokerage operations.  My father owned a real estate franchise when I was young and was also a title company manager for many years before he retired. I spent a lot of time around those industries and listened to the stories, maybe surprisingly, it didn't inspire me then, to get into "the business". 

Fast forward about 20 years, to where I started in real estate, switching gears from many years in retail banking & operations, to assist in my husband's real estate business, managing our growing sales team and helping to propel us to the top ranks of producing real estate agents in the world. This is when Jaret and I truly realized we were better when we were "In It Together".

During and after the financial crash in 2008, we knew there had to be a better way. A better way to help buyers & sellers, a better way to run a real estate business, a better way to build for our family's future. So, in 2009 we started our own independent forward-thinking brokerage that was tech-driven, and client relationship-focused. We were pioneers in the use of technology to provide a more efficient process for consumers, yet we never wavered in our belief that it was the connection to the human being, to the buyer and seller, that would be the difference between an average or an exceptional experience for them. 

Today, our expertise, training & coaching, along with many years of practice in "everything real estate" have led us to understand the way to build a real estate business the right way. One that gives us the ability to help others achieve their dreams while continuing to allow us to live ours. We are partnered with a growing global network of top producing agents, industry icons, mega teams, and the best coaches, trainers and mentors in the world.

Our new mission is to link arms with others that want to benefit from our experience, personal coaching and mentoring. Our goal is to help others live the life they dream of, by sharing our successes and failures, motivating and inspiring, and sharing our story of life together in what we believe, is one of the most rewarding careers in the world when you're surrounded with the right people. 

Our Clients Say It Best

"I worked with Kim over the last 4 years and she has always been professional. She will go out of her way to help you find what you in a timely manner. Her response time and turn around were always very swift. I would highly recommend Kim for you next home purchase. She will make sure that you are happy and comfortable while doing business with her."
"Brenna is so great to work with! She is detail oriented and is fantastic at going over all the important information in a clear and understandable way. She is responsive and communicates well."
"The Ghent Team has helped us buy and sell 3 times during this crazy housing market. Each time, they had a strategy that worked and got us the home we wanted and for the one we sold, the price we wanted. Negotiating and the strategies they used were proven with our results. They were quick to answer questions and jump on something when needed. We really felt we were in good hands with them. They're an entire team and they all work seamlessly together. Just fantastic."
"They made the entire process of selling our home fast and easy, without me ever having to step foot outside to sign anything. In the end, we wound up with over $200k the listing price! Thank you both for the excellent service you provided, I look forward to future business with you."
"After interviewing 4 different agents, I chose the Ghent Team with eXp Realty, they sold my home in just 9 days for cash. They did a great job marketing the property and did everything they promised. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in selling or buying."
"We love the Ghent Team! Easy to work with and seriously the best in the business. They listed our custom home lot that had sat for nearly a year and not sold with another agent - within two weeks at the same price we received multiple offers, and chose the all cash offer, and were closed in 10 days!"
"We had a very smooth transaction thanks to their help. They were not our agent, nor did they represent us, which required us to make a leap of faith, and trust this agent who was selected by the other side of the transaction. They proved worthy of our trust, in fact exceeding my "stretch" expectations. It was refreshing to work with the Ghent Team."
"I can’t say enough how amazing Kristi Ghent and her team made the sale of my home seem so effortless. All my questions were always answered immediately and I couldn’t be happier. If you are looking for great customer service I recommend using the Ghent Team. They are the only real estate people I will ever use!"
"The Ghent Team are extremely knowledgeable and communicative. Their professionalism, knowledge and attentiveness is unsurpassed . I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. They will go the extra mile and deliver beyond your expectations!"
