Dauphin Creek Realty and Associates Adds Construction to its Services
Business View – May/June 2020 / Small Business of the Month
Iron sharpens iron,” says Kimberly Thompson, managing broker/owner of Dauphin Creek Realty and Associates. She cites Proverbs 27:17 to describe how she is motivated and inspired by those she meets through the Mobile Area Chamber’s Growth Alliance Task Force.
“When I see what other Chamber members are doing, I am empowered that I can do this as well,” she says.
Thompson is fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning a business. Her full-service real estate brokerage firm specializes in residential sales, investment properties and, most recently, new construction.
Her newest endeavor includes securing an investor to build new homes. The first home is complete, and
Thompson has two more planned. Located in the Eight Mile community, the 1,840-square-foot properties are considered starter homes, but they each have enough room for an owner to stay in it as the family expands.
One way she contributes back to the community is by offering a free seminar for homebuyers. Presenters discuss a variety of topics, including what paperwork is needed, how credit scores affect the process and how to go about buying a home. Thompson also says she works with first-time home buyers hand-in-hand so they are comfortable and knowledgeable about the resources available to them.
This year’s seminar is tentatively scheduled for May. Watch the company’s website for details at dauphincreekrealty.info.
