The Goldens





When Kim Heddinger first entered the real estate business back in 1992, she knew she had to create a marketing point of difference, so that she would stand out in the crowd. Kim meshed her love for her Golden Retrievers with her love for selling real estate, and began marketing with her golden dogs. This turned out to be the beginning of a dynamic marketing brand known as “GoldenSold”.

In 2006, Kim Heddinger and Lynell Stokes opened Golden Realty. This name exemplifies the high degree of excellence the company is founded on and continually strive to achieve. In addition, the Golden Retriever has a large influence in establishing the culture of this company, as they are the embodiment of loyalty, love and kindness. “Goldens” are well known for being polite, and highly intelligent. They exude charm and confidence. They are sweet, eager to please, always patient and friendly, and are devoted companions. The Golden name represents who we are as a firm and as individuals, strive to be. This is the core of Golden Realty’s existence.
