Kim Wood Now Part of Agent Genius

Kim Wood

Kim Wood is a Realtor in West Chester, Chester County, PA where she was born, moved as a child and returned to in 2001. Kim and I have talked a great deal over the phone about what she does for a living and she always hesitates to call it a job because she loves it to much (call it cliche, it doesn’t matter- it’s true). She’s a very upbeat person who has an optimism that is highly contagious!

Kim has been blogging on her WestofPhillyBurbs blog for over a year, she is active on twitter (where she does do business by the way) and is an advocate for social media in her community. Kim is adamant in her stance on being yourself in your blogging and social media efforts and in reading her blog for so long, it is something she practices, not just preaches. Please take a moment to welcome Kim in the comments!

Lani is the COO and News Director at The American Genius, has co-authored a book, co-founded BASHH, Austin Digital Jobs, Remote Digital Jobs, and is a seasoned business writer and editorialist with a penchant for the irreverent.

    Let me tell you the only thing that isn’t perfect about Kim, is that she is not from Virginia. I just got the chance to meet her “in person” this week and she’s just as awesome in person as she is on-line. Kim, is the epitome of a social networker. I’ve appreciated her friendship over the past year and can’t wait to read more from her here!
