Before making one of the biggest purchases of your life, I believe you should find a Realtor who knows the area, has a commitment to continue their education beyond what the state requires and one who makes real estate their full time career, not a weekend hobby.
As a full time real estate professional, I serve the citizens of Statesville, Mooresville, Troutman, Barium Springs, Harmony, Union Grove and Stony Point with all their real estate needs. Thinking of selling? My marketing plan is second to none. Thinking of buying? I know the area and the inventory. I think outside the box to help both my clients who are selling, as well as those desiring to purchase. Specializing in the Deercroft, Spring Forest, Dogwood Hills, Meadow Oaks and Fort Dobbs Subdivisions, my goal is to help guide the residents of Iredell County and those desiring to relocate here with in-depth knowledge of the county. Iredell County is one of the largest counties in the state of North Carolina. It requires someone dedicated to just that area. No property is too small or too large, from the country setting to the lake, I work with them all. I am committed to listening to my clients and giving counsel to those who may have been overwhelmed by financial circumstances & may need to sell their properties through the short sale or foreclosure process. The short sale and foreclosure process requires a different set of skills than a normal sale, and I have the skills and mind set needed to make this process as smooth as possible for all involved.
As stated earlier, I strongly feel that any professional should continually learn and improve their skills and knowledge. I received my license as a real estate agent in 2002 and immediately started studying for my real estate brokers license, which I also received in the later part of 2002. At the time I was studying for these, I was a full time Paralegal, and also held a Mortgage Brokers license in the state of NC. In November of 2003, I decided it was time to go out on my own and if it was to be, it was up to me. I joined Exit Realty Statesville, and thus began my passion and career as a full time Realtor. I received my ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) designation, which only fueled my passion to begin working on the GRI (Graduate Realtors Institute Designation), which took as many hours to obtain as the real estate license did, including nine exams. I also hold the designation of Workforce Housing Specialist, At Home With Diversity, Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource designations. I hold the Accredited Home Staging and Feng Shui accreditations. I am continually attending trainings on technology and other subjects that could improve the way I do business. One of my favorite trainings was discovering the different personality types and how each of the personalities act, and what they need from you their Realtor. This has given me the insight into how to best guide and assist my clients in the home buying or selling process.
I cannot thank Brittany Marlow-Hill enough, for the amazing service she provided during my recent relocation to the Statesville area. A good friend, from the college referred Kim and within 24 hours, I had my own personal web page and was viewing available houses. I continually relied on my real estate professional’s years of experience and she proved on numerous occasions how valuable an agent is during the home buying process. From the first showing to the final handshakes at closing, she was there ensuring I received the best possible service! Keith M. Statesville, NC
Brittany Marlow-Hill, edges out all other real estate agents by being a highly effective real estate marketer. As my listing agent, Kim used cutting edge technology to attract buyers and market my property in a way that cinched and closed the deal rapidly. Kim actually cares about her clients. On top of her professional skills, Kim was just lovely to work with---always friendly, smiling and making you feel at ease. Once my house had an offer put in on it, Kim found me a new home the same day!!! Kim is an excellent agent to do business with and I highly recommend her. Angie G. Statesville NC
Sounds like I spend many hours working on my career, which I do, but I also enjoy spending time at home with my family and friends. I am married to my high school sweetheart; Mitchell Privette and we’ve been married over 27 years. We have a daughter, Hannah. I talked about a lifetime of knowledge of the area, that’s because I was born and raised right here in Statesville and have continued to live here and raise my family here. I enjoy photography, canoeing, camping with my family, baking, cake decorating and traveling. I especially love cruising, whether it be to Alaska or the Caribbean, no one has to ask me twice to go on a cruise. I attend St. Mark Baptist Church, where I have held many positions and have enjoyed each one.

Statesville is a city located in Iredell County, North Carolina, United States and was named an All-America City in 1997 and 2009. The population of Statesville was 24,633 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Iredell County and is located at the intersection of I-40 and I-77.
In 1753, Scots-Irish Presbyterians and German Lutherans, who originally settled in Pennsylvania, began arriving in Statesville to plant crops in the fertile soil where game and water were also plentiful. The settlement, known as Fourth Creek Congregation, was named for the fresh water stream, which was the fourth creek west of the neighboring settlement of Salisbury. The center of the settlement was a log cabin where the Presbyterians worshiped and where the First Presbyterian Church is located today.
In 1755, the colonial governor Arthur Dobbs authorized the construction of the colony’s frontier fort, which was located approximately three miles due north of the Fourth Creek settlement. Built and garrisoned by North Carolina provincial soldiers, Fort Dobbs defended the British North America’s western frontier in the colony of North Carolina during the French and Indian War. Fort Dobbs combined the functions of a military barracks, fortification, and refuge for settlers, provisioning depot and center for negotiations with Native Americans.
The state legislature divided Rowan County in 1788, and the new county was named Iredell for James Iredell, associate justice of the first Supreme Court during the presidency of George Washington.
One year later, the legislature selected a spot for the county seat. The Fourth Creek Congregation was chosen, and the settlement became known as Statesville.
As early as 1833, Statesville's leaders began laying track for railroads to connect the Piedmont area of North Carolina with the rest of the country.
By 1858, Statesville was growing rapidly and soon afterward began leading the state in the production of tobacco and tobacco products, the manufacture and blending of whiskey, and became a large distribution center for roots and herbs.
