Kim Pease, a Realtor since 1989 and founding member of the team, brings energy and experience to the team. Kim is an avid runner – having completed more than 17 marathons including Boston, New York and Chicago. She recently completed running in the oldest marathon in the world – Comrades Marathon in South Africa (actually 56 miles) in May, 2016. Her chocolate lab Willy averages 40 miles of running each week!
Kim is a member of the CBBurnet “Elite” group and consistently named in the TOP 50 Agents for Coldwell Banker Burnet. She has been secretary and treasurer of the Minneapolis Association of Realtors Board of Directors. Kim has owned four different homes in the Cedar Lake area she loves.
Our tagline “People, Houses and Enthusiasm” is more than just a gimmick – it really explains how we approach our work and why we do what we do. The people, our clients, come first and are really what this business is all about for us – and why she’s had the enthusiasm to buy and sell houses for more than 25 years!
Interesting Tidbit: The 2nd house Kim and her husband Rick (see below) purchased had multiple offers. The seller was in his 80’s and had a 3-year-old dog for which he had not found a home. Kim and Rick requested to let the dog, Gracie, stay in the house in their offer. They got the house! Gracie ended up being a special part of their lives until she passed away 11 years later. They bought a wonderful dog that came with a house.

Marcy Libby, originally from Wisconsin and a dual-citizen of Canada and the U.S., also has a passion for running and biking (imagine that) and brings more than 12 years of real estate experience to the Kim Pease Team. While continuously striving for balance in work-life-family (she’s got three children, is among top producing teams at Coldwell Banker Burnet, and still makes time to travel and go on dates with her husband) Marcy truly loves being a realtor and knowing that she has helped someone through a very important process. Marcy has a knack for digging into market trends and being in the thick of the local real estate industry. Her extensive experience with relocating clients is a tremendous asset to the team. So is her affection for bakeries! A current Edina resident and former teacher by trade, Marcy offers our clients much firsthand knowledge about the buying and selling process, and school districts in the area.
Interesting facts: Marcy loves watching the Packers! When Marcy was in second grade she had a short-lived career as a recording artist on a Christmas album. She and her two siblings have the same exact age differences as her three children, the same order in gender, and she and her mom were the same ages for the births of their children!

Rick Hoff (right) and Ben Town (left), our team handymen, are a great resource to our buyers and sellers. From minor to not-so-minor repairs or improvements, Rick and Ben can provide a skilled hand to get your property ready for showings, take care of inspection items, or help you make that new house just the way you want it.
Rick and Kim seem to gravitate toward houses in their hobbies. They have renovated numerous properties and currently live in one that they fixed up themselves. They have always believed that any renovations they made should help to make their home more livable for them – not just better for re-sale value. Case-in-point: none of their homes have ever had more than two bedrooms. They love to have ample space for people to gather (including their 17 nieces and nephews who live nearby).
Interesting factoid: the 3rd house Kim and Rick bought had multiple offers. The sellers ended up including their boat in the purchase and Rick and Kim still live in that Libbs Lake house on the most eastern bay of Lake Minnetonka.
