I’m Kim McLachlan, an award-winning realtor who loves living in Victoria. I am deeply involved in the women’s professional community here in Victoria, and those connections help me bring incredible value to my clients. For the past 25 years, I’ve put my business degree to work for an exciting career in sales, public relations and fashion. (Lucky me—I can do all those things in one job, as real estate is a mixture of all of those things.) I’m also a parent of two twenty-something children, so you know that I am a woman who has a lot of patience.
What are some of your favourite things to do?
Victoria is a great city to explore on foot while discovering pockets of hidden beauty. Walking is something I do a lot. I also spend time tending my garden.I love to cook and entertain; apparently, my pizza is legendary. It brings me joy to see how good home cooking brings out happiness and laughter in my loved ones.
What is your most treasured possession?
I don’t think of them as possessions, but my children are my pride and joy. My son is studying Biomedical Engineering at the University of Victoria. My daughter operates a high-end fitness club, and is honing her business skills by taking night courses at Camosun College.
What natural ability would you like to have?
I would love to create art with metal and wood and have taken woodworking classes in the past. I highly respect and admire people who can take a piece of driftwood and some old rusty iron and mold it into a breathtaking piece of art.
What would someone be surprised to discover about you?
I’m a singer (jazz, blues, Latin)—and a good one! I attend neighbourhood jam sessions, and sometimes there are prizes. Guess who wins each and every time?
