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.
Education: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.
Family:Married 38 years. We have three sons and two black Labradors that keep us active.
Hobbies:Anything to do with Lake Chelan. Waterskiing, boating, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, camping and just being out of doors.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Thank you so much for all your expertise and experience. You serve your profession at Coldwell Banker so well.
Kim worked his fanny off for us on the sale of our condo. He’s professional, knows the chelan market and is a no BS kind of guy.
Thank you so much! We are so appreciative of you going such a huge extra step for us as you have consistently done for us during both purchases. You will have our continued business and anyone we know that is looking in the area will get your highly recommended name.
