I’ve been a Lutz resident for over 30 years. What I love the most about raising my family here is that despite how the area has grown, it still maintains a hometown feel. My ties and my life are here and that’s what’s important to me about being a neighborhood specialist. I can provide the insight vital to buyers, sellers, and investors because I understand first-hand.
Even more significant than the real estate licenses and certifications I have earned is my in-depth knowledge of the area. I know the neighborhoods, schools, market conditions, zoning regulations, local economy and most importantly the people of Lutz.
Both my husband and I grew up here and are very connected to the Lutz community. Our son plays for the Lutz Chiefs Football Program, and for Lutz Baseball. We are proud sponsors for both organizations and donate our time coaching and mentoring the players.
A tight knit community, Lutz is nestled between rural and urban areas; it is bordered by the best of both worlds. Residents love the natural beauty of our lakes and conservation areas. There are all sorts of locally owned businesses and restaurants, but if you need a trip to the mall you have many choices within a 15 minute commute. Lutz offers wonderful communities and top ranked schools. Some of the area’s best lakes are located in Lutz. Being a former show skier for Sea World and Cypress Gardens, I’ve tried my skill on almost every body of water in Hillsborough and Pasco Counties. In fact, selling lakefront homes is one of my favorite things to do.
Just a few items you might like to know about my real estate career: I was the Rookie of the Year in 1994 and 1995; and have been a consistent top producer earning the coveted: Hall of Fame, Platinum, and 100% Club awards. As a Lutz, Land O’ Lakes, Odessa and Tampa real estate expert, I also earned my Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) designation.
I have extensive knowledge of the mortgage/underwriting fields and government programs that help homeowners in need. There are many components to a successful Real Estate transaction, from the home inspections, repairs, mortgage process and securing clear title. I surround myself with the best in the business. Getting your house sold and/or getting you the home of your dreams is my ultimate goal, I only refer you to the people I trust.
There’s no greater compliment anyone can receive than to have someone you have worked with recommend you. To all my past and current clients, I extend a most sincere “Thank You”.

Kim made the entire process extremely painless. She was always so easy to reach by phone, text or email and always kept us up to date on the status of the showings and provided feedback. She was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

We have purchased two homes, and sold one through Kim. She was a wealth of information throughout the entire process and goes to great lengths to find that perfect home for her customers. I truly believe it is personal to her, not just business. My son and daughter-in-law also purchased and sold their first home through Kim. After moving out of town they were unable to use Kim for their new purchase. After it was all over, my son made numerous comments about how much better it was dealing with Kim and how informative she was. I will certainly use her for any future real estate needs.

We were relocating from New Jersey to the Tampa area and were referred to Kim. She was wonderful in helping to familiarize us with the area. The market was very competitive and Kim stayed on top of new listings. Kim didn’t waste time in putting together an offer and guiding us through the counter offer process. Kim was never pushy, she always listened, was very professional and supportive. She was great at advising us about potential issues and helpful in every step of the process. We are so happy in our new home and so thankful to Kim for finding it for us. We highly recommend Kim.

My husband and I were newly married, searching for a new home. We told Kim the price range and specific things we were looking for in a starter home. In no time at all, we were signing the papers to our first home! I must say, my first time home buying experience was an amazing one! Kim was very friendly and always available when I had questions! A year later, my husband changed jobs and we had to move. I dreaded the thought of having to put our house on the market. Spoke with Kim about my concerns and she assured me that she would have it sold within a couple weeks. Kim was able to sell our home in two days! I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. She knows her stuff and works really hard to ensure that her customers happy with their home buying experience!
Kim made the selling and home buying process hassle-free. We listed our home and got a FULL PRICE offer in less than 12 hours, yes 12 hours. We had very specific requirements of staying in Lutz and living on a lake. She knows this little town from corner to corner. Not only did she find our home quickly, she made the paperwork a breeze and seamless. Thank you Kim, for helping us find our dream home.
I have used Kim to purchase 5 homes and sell 3 homes, over the last 20 years. Regardless of which transaction, Kim represented us with the utmost professionalism and honesty. As a master negotiator, Kim worked out fair and equitable sale prices on all 8 transactions. Regarding the 3 homes Kim sold for me, all were under contract within 2 weeks. On the 5 homes we purchased through Kim, she found us exactly what we were looking for, in our price range, and meeting our specifications regarding school district, amenities, location and type of the home we were seeking.
We have known Kim Murray Bell for nearly 20 years and during that time have completed 4 real estate transactions with her. Her intelligence and work ethic have made each of these easy and efficient. She skillfully brought us only homes we would consider and buyers who would consider our homes. She managed the realtors, bankers, title companies, etc…on the other side of the transaction without us having to get involved. We have recommended Kim to many of our friends who have also said the same things about working with her. We will continue to work exclusively with Kim.
