About Me

Kim grew up in Stoneham, MA where she continues to reside with her 3 teenage boys. As a child she was first introduced to real estate accompanying her dad, a broker/owner at the time, to open houses and later working in his real estate office in Arlington, MA. Kim began her own venture in the real estate market at the young age of 24 by purchasing a home in Stoneham, MA. Since then she has invested in property in New Hampshire and has flipped multiple houses.

Kim brings a wealth of knowledge to her clients and is a consummate professional. She prides herself with a successful track record across various industries by always putting her clients needs first. Kim has an MBA from Northeastern University and with her vast experience and knowledge in marketing, finance, sales, project management, public speaking and negotiation, she knows how to successfully close deals.

It’s no surprise that when Kim decided to pursue a career in real estate, she would quickly become a leader in the industry and her sales would surpass those with years of experience. Kim intimately understands this business isn’t just about buying and selling houses; with fierce dedication she ensures her clients needs are always met while maintaining peace of mind throughout the process. Helping homeowners and investors on this journey we call life, she doesn’t take lightly the emotional impact the real estate market can have. With her warm heart and huge personality, Kim supports her clients every step of the way and often becomes close friends long after closings. Upon meeting her, you’ll certainly understand why.

In addition to residential sales, Kim has a vast knowledge of short sales, investment properties, flips, 1031 exchanges and land development. She definitely knows how to work hard and play hard. When she’s not helping someone buy or sell property, she can be found on a baseball field watching one of her boys play America’s favorite pastime. She also loves exercising, skiing, vacationing and spending time with her family and friends. And if you can believe it, Kim also holds certifications to teach Mathematics, Business, Physical Education and Health & Family Consumer Sciences and is a PE/Wellness teacher in Melrose. No one can figure out how she does it all, but she says the key is not watching TV.

Giving back comes second nature to Kim. Autism Housing Pathways is the most recent recipient of her generous acts of kindness. She played an instrumental role in creating a revolving fund enabling young adults with autism to secure housing. Supporting a myriad of international, national and local organizations including Special Olympics, American Cancer Society, CARE, American Diabetes, Greater Chicago Food Bank, Home for Little Wanderers, Brain Tumor Society she has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars and many more. Kim has also contributed to and fundraised for family members and friends in need. What makes Kim even more amazing is that she donates a substantial amount of her real estate earnings to those in need. She is currently in the process of setting up the Kim Kearns Nardone Foundation.

So, it was time to sell our home after 20 years. But, where would we start? Looking for a competent Realtor was the first step and it didn’t take us long (thankfully), to find Kim Nardone and Vanessa Palmieri of Citylight Homes. Kim and Vanessa came out to meet us and we realized, right away, that they knew what they were talking about and had a clear and working knowledge of what the Real Estate market was doing at the time we were looking to sell. Once we agreed to work with them, they made it possible for us to remove a life-time’s worth of “stuff” from the property in record time—Vanessa is THE absolute best at helping you coordinate what needs to be done and the least costly and most effective way to do so. We greatly enjoyed working with you and highly recommend your company and expertise to anyone looking to sell or buy a property in Massachusetts. We truly feel that we made some new friends and were the beneficiaries of the knowledge and work ethic of two, top-notch Realtors. OUTSTANDING, Ladies, and Thank You for all the work you have done on our behalf. We are grateful. Brian & Susana

How fortunate I was to have Kim Nardone and team connect with me at a time when I knew I needed to sell but found the idea and process nothing less than terrifying. Kim took care of everything, I was given several selling options and settled on what worked best for me AND with no pressure! I can't express enough how grateful I am to she and her team for making it work, the support throughout and now I am on to a new home. Need to sell? Give Kim a call!

Kim & Vanessa are a dream team to work with! They helped us sell our house within 9 days & over asking. Our plan was to wait a year before we started looking & 3 weeks after selling we found our dream home! Kim got us a showing for the next day & helped us put a strong offer together & it was immediately accepted and the open houses were cancelled. The level of detail & communication from both Kim & Vanessa made this entire process from selling to buying so stress-free in this crazy market! We can't thank them enough!

We contacted Kim after seeing how she took care of our sister. She gave her the best advice netting her the most profit with the least amount of stress. It showed me that she was interested in her client personally and not just as a potential sale. When it came time for her to sell our family home, she was responsive, helpful, made great suggestions, and kept us on track through a difficult time. We are grateful for her part in the sale and I would highly recommend her!

From our initial meeting with Kim and subsequent meetings with both Kim and Peter, we knew we had chosen the right company to work with in the sale of our home for 48 years. This usual cumbersome and tedious experience was accomplished effortlessly with the professional guidance of Kim and her team member Vanessa. They worked as a truly seasoned team and communicated with us in a very responsive and timely manner. There is no doubt in our mind that if the need ever arises again, we wouldn’t hesitate to call upon the team of Citylight’s Kim & Vanessa and recommend them highly to our friends as well. We would be remiss if we did not also acknowledge co-founder Peter Souhleris. All the accolades mentioned above also apply to Mr. Souhleris. Thank You CityLight!!

Kim and her team became so much more then a realtor for my family. She stepped in to a situation and placed my families future ahead of her own needs and we will forever be indebted to her. Then the process of buying the house (off-market) was extremely easy and the follow through every step of the way was phenomenal. You do not meet selfless people every day and we are so fortunate for crossing paths with Kim! Highly recommend her services and I know if I ever need to search for a new home she will be the first call!

From the moment we met Kim and Vanessa, it was clear to us that they are not only knowledgeable and skilled professionals, but also compassionate individuals who genuinely care about their clients. Their outstanding initiative, persistence, and especially their genuine empathy, truly sets them apart. Throughout the sometimes daunting task of selling our home of 27 years, Kim and Vanessa displayed exemplary professionalism. They consistently provided timely updates, and they always answered all our questions and addressed our concerns with clarity and patience. Kim and Vanessa's ability to provide sound advice is truly impressive. They leveraged their expertise and knowledge of local market dynamics and pricing strategies to help us secure us a deal with a qualified buyer at a price that met our expectations. Thanks to them, it could not have gone more smoothly. We absolutely recommend Kim and Vanessa. Our experience working with with them was nothing short of exceptional. They are the real deal, and I guarantee that anyone who has the pleasure of working with them will have an equally incredible experience.

Kim Kearns Nardone and her team made my condo selling experience exceptional. As a real estate investor, I’ve worked with multiple real estate agents as I’ve bought and sold investment properties in the Lynn, Watertown and Swampscott areas. What’s different about working with this team is the unwavering attention to detail, passion for success and the benefits they provide for the same amount of money as other agents. Because Kim has a team of people all working toward a common goal, I experienced around the clock service with open houses every weekend, guidance on how to stage and prepare the property for buyers, not one but TWO photographers to ensure the photos came out perfectly and an enhanced marketing experience that went beyond posting on Redfin. Kim and team were able to sell my property for a great price and I’m excited to hire them again as I pursue my next investment property. You will love working with this team.

We worked with Kim Nardone to sell our family's home that had been in the family for 50 years. She was able to find us an off market buyer which greatly simplified things. We had a fair amount of obstacles and yet she and her assistant Vanessa gently yet assertively nudged us towards getting it all done, despite how tangled it seemed. Vanessa was especially helpful in off loading some of our tasks. They were both very responsive to all our questions. Kim really knew what a big deal this move was and had a drawing created of our house so we could remember it. A very thoughtful gesture. Working with Kim and Vanessa made a complicated situation doable. You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with them.

When my husband and I decided to buy our house, I knew I needed to have Kim as our realtor. She is hardworking, honest, and trustworthy, and she made the entire process straightforward and stress-free. Her entire team is incredibly professional, and we felt confident with their help and expertise. We ended up buying the home of our dreams, and we are beyond grateful. I have already recommended Kim to my friends and family members!

It was Kim’s persistence, honesty and commitment that got me to the finish line. The home improvements executed by john was spot on. Vanessa took charge, staged the house and made sure that every nitty gritty detail was addressed. The entire team won my trust and gratitude. We need more people like Kim and Vanessa and john in the real estate industry. Thank you

Kim was exceptional, highly recommend! We attempted to sell our house on our own but it was not going well until we had Kim list our house. She made many great suggestions on how to improve our house prior to it being listed. She had professional pictures taken that were outstanding and was available whenever we had a question and negotiated the price very well, getting substantially over asking price and a lot more than we could have gotten on our own. If you want one stop shopping with knowledge, experience and someone very easy to work with, Kim is the one to call!

Kim Kearns Nardone from CityLight Real Estate is the best. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Kim when purchasing our first home. Kim is knowledgeable and dependable; she is friendly and a trustworthy person. As first-time homebuyers, Kim was with us every step of the way, making us feel like a top priority, setting up private viewings, answering all of our questions, offering creative solutions and expert advice when it came to negotiating. Kim was up-to-date on local developments and the ins-and-outs of the neighborhoods we were interested in (community services, school system, local hotspots, etc). Despite the competitive housing market, we never felt rushed or pressured, but rather that we had a teammate with our best interest in mind. We feel lucky to have worked so closely with Kim, and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Thanks so much Kim! Hannah & Rob

Kim Nardone helped me purchase my second home a little over a year ago. I have to say, even to this day I brag about how easy the process was. She was able to sell my current home and purchase my new home all on the same day and the timeline never changed. Smooth as butter. I was very impressed by the portfolio she presented me with on day 1. It was then when I knew I had found my agent. It’s no understatement that Kim is both very friendly and professional. She’ll work around the clock for you so you can keep your peace of mind during one of the more stressful times in life. Thank you, Kim!

Kim is a solutions oriented person whose guidance and support helped my wife and I successfully move our family during a particularly competitive time in the market. She is attentive, resourceful, and trustworthy - competencies we didn’t know we were looking for in a realtor until we experienced them firsthand with Kim. This process was new to us, but Kim helped us feel reassured and in-the-know every step of the way. She communicates clearly, never making us feel embarrassed or burdensome when asking questions or not knowing something. We are grateful for being paired up with Kim Kearns-Nardone, and would recommend her to anyone who is planning their next move as well.

She knew the market, put together my offer quickly, and worked closely with the seller’s agent to get my offer accepted on a highly competitive house. She was always available to go over my questions throughout the entire process any time of day. I would definitely work with her again!!

Kim was very impressive. She had an excellent knowledge of the market and what the key hot points were for sellers. She guided us through the buying process and helped us make the right bid. We found out that we were not the highest bidder, but thanks to her intimate knowledge of the market and her understanding of buyers needs, were able to secure the property by waiving certain contingencies and helping us craft an honest letter to the buyer to explain our situation and convince them to accept our offer. After the offer was accepted, she was there every step of the way to help us get the property inspected, address issues and complete the P&S. She also helped us when we needed visits to property. She definitely did not abandon us once she earned her commission.
