Kim Leighton, Realtor®

Listing Specialist

Looking back, I have always had a passion for anything Real Estate related, and as a Listing Specialist with the Amy Jones Group, I truly have the vision to help my clients navigate the process of selling their home and offer the support they need to make their move within this beautiful Valley or to somewhere else across the country.

As a young girl, I would sit for hours and sketch pictures of homes in colored pencil. No detail was left out – single levels, two-stories, landscaping, even going as far as displaying curtains in the windows and trees in the front yard!

All my drawing and design dreams lead me to earn a degree in Advertising and Design. Being a true “cheesehead” and Wisconsin native, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I was raised by my wonderful parents, along with my younger brother, Rick in the Southeastern WI city of Fond du Lac.

Immediately following college, I landed my dream job as an Advertising Production Artist with a major department store in Milwaukee, WI. After a few years, I was promoted to Art Director and gained experience and knowledge in Advertising. I then spent the next twenty years in the corporate world serving as an Art Director for two well-known companies in and around the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area.  

In 1995, my husband and I welcomed twin daughters, Kayla and Cassidy whom we adopted from China at the age of 4 months. As you can imagine, I was busy raising my precious baby girls and loving every minute of it. During this time, I left my position as an Art Director and became a freelance Graphic Designer allowing myself to set hours centered around my family.

After years of dreaming about Arizona and wishing to leave behind the brutal Wisconsin winters, my family relocated to Chandler, Arizona in 2002. After becoming very close friends with the real estate agent that brought my family to Arizona, I began pursuing a new career in real estate. 

My real estate career in a great economy. But as we all know, along with good economic times, come bad ones. The market slowed dramatically during the recession and it forced many real estate agents to leave the business, but not me! I persevered, worked hard and managed to help many families along the way.

Through the years, I have been a part of teams, but none as successful as the Amy Jones Group. I thoroughly enjoy being aligned with this team which provides top-notch marketing and creativity and all the tools I need to make my clients' dreams come true!

Currently, I live in Chandler, Arizona, a city that offers both the hometown feel and lifestyle that I desire. In my spare time, I love spending time with my grown daughters, my pets and I also like to dabble in interior design, and enjoy cooking and traveling.

I look forward to helping you with your real estate needs. As a Master Certified Negotiation Expert designee, you can be assured that my unique knowledge and vast experience make me the ideal agent to represent you in your home purchase or sale!
