Kim Komick’s father was a talented builder, sparking her interest in the field at a young age. She worked with him from a young age and into her college years at USC. Kim started KKC Fine Homes in 1992 and builds custom and spec homes in the Sand Section of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach.

 

How do you distinguish yourself from the competition? 

“Nobody knows the Sand Section like I do, and KKC Fine Homes has earned a reputation for building superior quality homes with a streamlined and efficient process. I have two of the best project managers in the business and multi-talented office staff. We are all committed to making a mark in our community.”

 

Fast Fact: Kim starts most days in the water—surfing, paddling or swimming. She enjoys spending time with her two teenage kids, Emma and Andy, and can often be spotted cruising The Strand and hanging around town with friends.

 

What are some ways you provide top-notch customer service?

“We are always available for our clients and help them monitor their projects by keeping them engaged every step of the way. This helps us make decisions efficiently, eliminates costly revisions and keeps our project timeline on track. We only work in Manhattan and Hermosa, which keeps our team members close by and available for anything that comes up.”

 

How do you empathize with your customer in order to build his/her trust in you and your business?

“I have been in their shoes. I built myself a quality custom home 10 years ago while I was a working mom with two kids in school. I know the challenges that the process of building a custom home can have on a family. The key is to develop a strong relationship with my clients, listen to their desires and concerns, and never forget that this project will ultimately be their home.”

 

What does the future hold for your career?

“I want to continue working with the great architects in the area to bring cutting-edge style and design to the Sand Section. We have several projects coming up in Hermosa Beach including two luxury homes on Hermosa Avenue that feature ocean-view pools on the fourth-floor deck. In contrast, we are working on some smaller family homes in the Hermosa Valley area. Of course we are always looking to build more in Downtown Manhattan.”
