Known as “Coach Kim,” she moved to the Flathead Valley in 2000 with her two sons and quickly became involved in the community, coaching for County Parks and Recreation Flag football, T-Ball program, Little Guy tackle football, Babe Ruth baseball, and Kalispell Lakers. She states, “My involvement has always been either coaching, mentoring or helping kids progress in sports so they feel confident and have fun.”
Prior to joining Flathead Valley Brokers, Barstow honed her real estate expertise with two other local real estate firms. “I’m extremely happy to be working for the team at FVB. For the past 15 years I’ve been known as ‘Coach Kim’ to people in this community …they know me as a team player and an expectation-exceeder! In my day-to-day life whether I’m selling real estate, consulting with clients on short and long term real estate goals, coaching kids sports, or volunteering in my community, I am always wanting to know what people expect of me. I ask a lot of questions and discuss several options with my clients to help them achieve THEIR goals.”
Currently one of her sons, Jake, is a Radiologist and her youngest son (and parkour expert) Derek is with West Valley Fire & Rescue. Kim and her family maximize their enjoyment of the Flathead by engaging in a variety of adventures including hunting, fishing, camping, landscaping, volunteering, crafts, and skiing.
