Join us in welcoming our newest family member, Shelley Welch!! We are so thrilled that she has joined our Buyers Team as a Buyers Specialist. Shelley came to us with many years of experience in Management and Service Delivery in the Triangle, NC area. REALTOR® Shelley Welch brings exceptional, goal-oriented client care service to the Kima Real Estate Group. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in with a degree in Recreation Administration with an emphasis in Therapeutic Recreation. After graduation, she settled in Raleigh and now calls Wake Forest home. Shelley was raised within a Navy family, and has lived all over the U.S. including Florida, California, and Virginia...allowing her to understand the good and bad of moving a family and what it entails.
During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her two daughters, cycling, travel, reading, and technology. Shelley is also a long time soccer player, coach, and referee. Shelley enjoys helping people's dreams of home ownership come true, and is excited to help those in the area, as well as those relocating from afar.
When it comes to providing the utmost in personal service to his clients, Peter Kima is on the cutting edge. This family man's demanding work ethic was passed on from his parents. His mother, a first generation German-American, forged a new life in a strange country. His father, who has not missed a day of work since 1972, led by example. Peter does not rest until he's done everything in his power to help you achieve your goals. As a husband and a father, his understanding of the importance of a family's home is reflected in his every move.
When Peter is not helping one of his clients, he can be found volunteering his time running a charity Lobster Bingo event, cooking burgers at the local Fire Station to benefit the children in the community, delivering dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in Wake County with his Kiwanis Club, collecting school supplies for the needy, or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. His favorite pastime, however, is spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Cole (12) and Camden (9 going on 20!).
Peter has resided in Germany, California, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oregon and Vermont. Having lived in North Carolina for over 10 years, Peter refers to North Carolina as home. Don't underestimate the value of Peter's moving experience. He and his team understand the rigors involved in making a family move. Rely on that experience to help you.

"Kristine and I would like to extend a sincere "thank you" for all your efforts in our home buying experience. During this entire experience we have come to look at you as more of a "friend" than just our real estate agent. The way you followed through with both written and verbal commitments is an honorable trait that you should be proud of. It makes us feel good to know that there are agents that go the extra mile like you have done for us. "
