Kimberly Kuhn is a REALTOR® at Coming Home Real Estate and Willard, Missouri resident. She is a member of Crossway Baptist Church in Springfield and volunteer at Freeway Ministries.

Freeway Ministries is a life-changing gospel centered outreach for all walks of life.  Freeway was first started by a few men who had a heart for the homeless, addicts and the forgotten in our society.  With an ex-convict and former drug dealer as a preacher, the ministry is designed to reach the unchurched population with the gospel of Christ.  Freeway introduces the gospel and a new believer finds freedom from their past and becomes a new creation in Christ. Freeway believes discipleship is the next step to teach new believers how to stay off the streets, out of addiction, and become productive members of society.

Attending and volunteering at Freeway I’ve seen first hand, Christ’s love is inclusive; no one is excluded.  I’ve gotten to witness dramatic transformations in people’s lives.  Unbelievable stories of where my friends have come from to where they are now, is a testament to the life changing love found only in Christ. Initially, I started attending Freeway to merely support the ministry and those who were pouring their lives into it.  I didn’t necessarily know I had a purpose there.  As someone who has grown up in church and never dealt with addiction issues, I didn’t feel I needed to be there for myself.  However, as I sat at a Freeway service listening to the message, it was brought to my attention that God uses people to show His love.   How is that struggling young woman who has grown up in a family of abuse from the ones she is supposed to trust going to understand God’s love?  She does not have a clear picture of love, especially not love without conditions. My job is to use my mouth, my heart, my hands, and my feet to let God’s love flow from me.   

I John 4:12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.

I encourage you to come see what Freeway is all about.  Stop by 739 W Talmage Street, Springfield, Mo., on any given Saturday night.  There is a clothing bank, a free meal served at 5:30 and the message starts at 6:00.  Free childcare is also provided.

Painting Your Home For a Fast Sale

art-wall-brush-paintingOne of the most important tasks we perform as listing agents, happens before your home is even listed.  Consulting clients on market preparedness is essential in a quick and successful selling process, not to mention it can alleviate a lot of stress when it comes time to start packing! Chances are you won’t find us over at our clients’ homes raking leaves or dusting fan blades… but we take our consultation role very seriously. That’s just one of the things that set our local Coming Home agents apart from the rest! A well prepared home will make for more attractive listing photographs, as well as more successful showings.

Once you’ve decided you want to sell your home, and have hired a Coming Home Real Estate agent to list your property, your agent will make an appointment to view your home. They will also send you our comprehensive Pre-Market Checklist. During the consultation appointment your agent may recommend painting some or all of your interior rooms. There are a few different reasons for this. Everyone has their own taste and style in home decor, but appealing to the most potential buyers is our goal once your home is on the market! Also, a fresh coat of paint can often help with odors, as well as making rooms feel more spacious and lighter!

Here are a few of our favorite neutral shades!

This is an all time favorite! “A light gray with warm undertones, this classic shade creates a unifying look that calms and restores. A great transitional color, it’s perfect for an open floor plan.” – https://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/color-overview/find-your-color/color/HC-172/revere-pewter?color=HC-17

Belle Grove Buff is a wonderful warm yet modern choice.  With it’s yellow undertones it brightens the home and creates beautiful contrast with the painted trim and dark hardwood flooring.

With a lot of green undertones, this khaki is a great choice.  Looking great with the white trim and doors as well as the natural warmth in the wood cabinetry!
