Kimberley Kraeling

Georgia Club Real Estate Associate Broker

Kimberley Kraeling

Kimberley was born in New Jersey, but has called Athens her home since an early age and considers herself a true Athenian. She attended schools in Clarke County and went on to graduate from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Science. Soon after she married her college sweetheart, Michael, they relocated to Charleston, SC and then to Marietta, GA as he pursued his degree at Southern Polytechnic State University. While raising their daughters, Kimberley looked for a profession that would allow her the flexibility she wanted for her family, but that would utilize the relationships she had developed over the years volunteering and serving her community. Real estate became the clear choice. Graduating from Barney Fletcher School of Real Estate in 2003, Kimberley started working with a small brokerage firm managing their portfolio of properties. In her 11 years there, Kimberley went on to obtain her Associate Brokers License, gained a wealth of property management knowledge, as well as valuable experience representing both buyers and sellers. In 2014, opportunities arose for Michael in Athens and Kimberley and her family found themselves back “home”. Wanting to learn more about the Athens market before jumping back into real estate sales, Kimberley accepted a “Transaction Coordinator” position with The Georgia Club Real Estate Company, Inc. After spending two years learning the business from the inside out, she made the move to Associate Broker. Kimberley’s love of the community and attention to detail, combined with her genuine personality and natural optimism make her a welcome addition to The Georgia Club Real Estate Company sales team.

  • “Suzanne and I could not have found a more dedicated and professional real estate agent to help us move from SWFL to the Athens area.  Her research into each development and area helped us, after looking for eight months, to a small gated over 55 community near Monroe – a small growing diverse community near much but without the craziness that life in the Greater Atlanta area is for so many.  Her attention to detail amazed us — and she never missed adding a thought or asking a question that helped make the usual semi-chaos of a inter-state move manageable.  She is the best real estate agent we have had, and we have had many during our far too numerous moves.  Selecting her to represent you in a purchase or sale would be the best choice ever.”

  • Our first meeting with Kimberley was a great experience. She had provided us with information about the area, about UGA, and about the housing market in the area. She came prepared with  a packet of information and some listings for us to go look at, and we were off to go look at properties. Unfortunately, with the limited number of houses on the market, we struggled to find something that day. Since we are from out of town, we were a little discouraged that we couldn’t find something while we were in town. Kimberley hit the pavement running and lined up properties for us to evaluate. She did walkthroughs with us remotely via facetime to help us get a sense of neighborhoods and properties. We quickly found a condo and decided to make an offer.

    Kimberley’s guidance and direction allowed us to get a condo within our budget and at a fair market price. She helped us with providing alternative solutions for our financing, she helped us find tradespeople for repairs and inspections, and she guided us through all of the complex buying processes that we were unfamiliar with.

    We closed on our property today with Kimberley at the helm. We cannot say enough great things about our experience. Kimberley’s hard work and attention to detail made this buying experience go smoothly.”

  • “To say that working with Kimberley Kraeling was a pleasure is an understatement.   She went above and beyond with our home building process at The Georgia Club.  Kimberley was always available and helped with any questions or decisions we had to make.  I could not have done it without her!  She truly cares about her clients and we would highly recommend her to anyone needing a realtor.”

    - Mac & Patti M.
  • “Roger and I wanted to send a note of gratitude to you for all you did in helping us find a home.  Your patience as we continually changed directions with our search was much appreciated. You never tried to rush our decision.  Your practice of always being prepared with comps and information about a neighborhood or property were invaluable.  While our time with you was probably longer than expected due to not finding exactly what we were looking for, your enthusiasm and willingness to show us the next property was always present.  We will readily recommend you to anyone that needs a realtor that is diligent, patient, and just fun to work with.  Thank you.”

    - Roger & Karen S.
  • My wife and I recently sold our home through Zillow.  The buyer’s agent however,  Kimberley Kraeling, was excellent to work with although we were not her direct client.  We noticed how thorough, professional, and focused she was on her client’s needs without losing respect for our situation and our decision to proceed without an agent’s representation.  I would highly recommend Kimberley to anyone looking for an agent to represent them when purchasing or selling a home.  Thanks again Kimberley!

    - Jason T.
  • “Thank you so much for your expertise and professionalism. I had a wonderful experience purchasing my new home in the Georgia Club. You were so attentive to my needs, very patient and always available when I had questions  – and there were many!  I will highly recommend you to others and always come back to you for any of my future real estate needs.”

    - Nancy S.
  • “We can’t thank Kimberley enough for helping us find our dream home! Kimberley really listened to what we were looking for to fit our family’s needs. She patiently helped us explore the available options including building vs buying an existing home.  She made sure our questions were thoroughly answered and guided us smoothly through the process.  Kimberley even assisted in connecting us with the builder to help us make our vision for this home come to life. Whether you are buying or selling your home, we have no doubt Kimberley will go above and beyond to provide you great service.”

    - Michelle J. & Rob P.
  • “We are so pleased with the incredible service Kimberley Kraeling provided to us during our search for the perfect home in the Athens/Watkinsville Area.  We had a home to sell in Birmingham before we could purchase one in GA and Kimberley kept us apprised of new builds and resales that fit our dream list.  It took us FOUR YEARS to sell our home in AL and Kimberley stayed positive with us and never gave up on us.  Whenever we felt like things were looking promising she would spend her weekend showing us homes.  She was professional and patient throughout the entire process and then when we finally had a contract on our home she directed us towards the right people to get everything set for financing, etc on our new home!  We are finally closer to our son and his family all thanks to Kimberley!”

    - Mike & Becky D.
  • “We were fortunate enough to have Kimberley recommended to us as an agent when we decided to move to The Georgia Club.  We are so glad we secured her.  We have moved dozens of times over the years and we can honestly say that no agent has been as attentive and as conscientious as Kimberley.   Every time we were to meet she was there (early), any questions we had she immediately got back to us with answers, and she even rode by the house we selected and took pictures of the spring flowers we had to look forward to! I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone looking for a house in The Georgia Club or surrounding areas!”

    - Connie H.
  • “Kimberley really knows the area real estate market and trends and used our time wisely to make sure we found the best home match. She took a lot of time with us to learn and understand our lifestyle and other personal needs. She was always highly attentive and responsive guiding us through the search, decision, offer, contract, construction and closing activities with our home. We give her much credit for the efficient, smooth experience.  Kimberley is an ultimate professional in all her work and interactions. Her attention to detail and follow-up are excellent as are her communication skills. She is a genuine, caring, honest and personable person.”

  • “We can’t thank you enough for helping to make our recent home buying and moving experience pleasant and stress free! …You were always there for us, communicating regularly and letting us know what was needed every step along the way in the home buying process.  Your kindness, courtesy and professionalism was exemplary!  …We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for THE BEST Realtor in the Statham, GA area!”

  • “Kimberley is very professional and responsive.  She knows the market well.  She helped us negotiate and brought up several issues we had not thought to ask about.  That saved us money in the long run.”

  • “Kimberley helped us buy a home when we relocated from Seattle.  She was wonderful to work with under the stresses of buying a home from across the country.  When our moving truck was going to be two weeks late she even brought us a care package and let us borrow her air mattress.”
