Kim Skaar

This really isn't about me and it’s all about you. It’s how I can help you make the best decision of your life and become an owner in Lake Chelan just like hundreds of other clients I have worked with. I have never worked with someone to acquire property in the Chelan Valley and have them tell me years later that they made a mistake. You will love living here or spending more time here with your family and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Here is my story:

We sold our waterfront home on Lake Sammamish in 1996 and moved to Lake Chelan. I commuted to Bellevue for 7 years for work and in 2003 I became a full-time Realtor at Coldwell Banker Lake Chelan Properties and gave up traveling each week. My wife, Robyn has a retail store called Willow in downtown Chelan.


I graduated from California State University at Northridge in Southern California. My degree was a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in Advertising and a minor in Sales and Marketing.

Work History:

Never had a guaranteed paying job. I started my own advertising business called AdCenter, Inc. based in Bellevue, Wa. in 1980 and worked there until 2003. We did graphics, printing, photography, screen printing, embroidery, and promotional products. After 23 years of this, I wanted another challenge. From 2003 thru today I have been a full-time Real Estate Broker in Lake Chelan.


Married 38 years. We have three sons and two black Labradors that keep us active.


Anything to do with Lake Chelan. Waterskiing, boating, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, camping and just being out of doors.

Honest and knowledgeable

Kim is very honest, and is very knowledgeable about the market. He treated our family with the utmost respect, and kept us well informed throughout the entire process. He genuinely looked out for our best interest.

Long Distance Transaction

Kim did a transaction for us long distance. We were selling a property in Washington and we winter in Florida. He made the process seamless and took care of our every need. He answered our questions promptly, which I really appreciate, and actually went way out of his way to complete this sale in a timely manner for us. I would highly recommend Kim if you are looking for a realtor to give 110% effort.

Great Negotiator

Kim is a great negotiator. As a full time real estate agent and in the business for over 10 years, he is extremely knowledgeable of the area and was able to put a realistic price on my building and get it sold for the price I needed. I would highly recommend Kim if you want to list a property. If you are looking for property, he’s probably a good bet for finding what you want because he seems to know about every property in the area and I know he shows all available listings and not just his own.

Pleasurable experience

Kim worked with us for over 1 year to find us exactly what we were looking for in a property on the river. We had specific ideas in mind, on what we wanted. His knowledge of the area and sites available are tops. He was very understanding of our needs, and made our journey a very pleasurable experience from start to finish. If he could find what we wanted he can find what anyone wants. A true professional, all the way.

First property

Kim helped me buy my very first property in Chelan area! Purchasing raw land is always challenging in finding the perfect spot at the perfect price. Kim took the time to show us multiple listings and drive around the area. He helped negotiate the best price and obtain a fast closing. I would recommend anyone looking to buy property in Chelan to contact him!

Great Follow Through

I listed my home on Lake Chelan with Kim. The market was slow however he did his best to keep the home in the forefront. We received an offer that was unworkable however the second offer was handled extremely well by Kim and especially the follow through finalization.

Professional and skilled realtor

Wanted to post an excellent experience for a very helpful, professional and skilled realtor. My wife and I were looking for a specific property and contacted Kim Skaar. What we got was much more than expected. Kindness, knowledge, skills and motivation to help us. Kim actually asked us about our needs and wants and listened with great retention. He obviously went to work for us right away as he quickly found a property meeting our criteria. Yes, our criteria. Delivering on our requested needs and not just a near fit for an easy sale. Kim is a really friendly master of his craft and integrated himself into the process keeping us involved in all aspects of the purchase before and after. I will always use Mr. Skaar for all things real estate and more. He has earned my loyalty!

Orondo property

Kim listed my property in Orondo. He was knowledgeable about the market, and his advice on listing price was right on. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Kim for any transactions in the Chelan area! Life is good at Chelan!

Helped me move in

We had about a month before we had to be out of our rental. Kim was super flexible about showing us homes due to our intermittent availability. We found a home that would work for us and everything went fine until closing. We were expecting to have a holiday weekend to move in to our new place. Unfortunately something with the lenders caused our closing to be delayed until the following Tuesday, the last day of the month. This was the day we were supposed to be out of our rental. The closing didn’t happen until late in the afternoon. We were very pressed for time. As soon as he could, Kim showed up with the keys to our new home, and with his truck to help us move. I don’t think I have ever heard of a realtor doing that before.

Responsive and timely

We had a fantastic experience working with Kim. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the community in Chelan. He was very responsive and timely during our buying process. He has been a great help even after closing as we are remote buyers.
