Marilyn Kingma, 


Marilyn Kingma is publisher of the apartment guides for The Kingma Agency. In a real sense, her work is her calling.  For Marilyn, sales is about taking care of people's needs. 

She's been at it since the 1970's and she's good at it - so good in fact that she has been part of the speaking circuit, traveling across the country talking about sales and marketing. After achieving recognition as a top sales person for a national direct sales organization, Marilyn continued with high personal and group sales achievements for over ten years.

She recruited participants from throughout the country to travel and perform with the U.S. National Chorus, a musical group that toured for several summers throughout Europe and Australia .

Marilyn has been publisher and head of sales of the New River Valley Apartment Guide since 1987, and the Roanoke Valley Apartment Guide since 1992. For several years, she has served on the Board of Directors holding various offices in both the Roanoke Valley and New River Valley Apartment Associations. She was recognized as outstanding Vender of the year by the Virginia Apartment Managers Association in 2004.

She graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Elementary Education, and worked as a teacher before starting a family. She raised three talented children, and has worked closely with her husband as partner and officer of the Kingma Agency since its inception. Her winning personality, understanding of the sales process, and exceptional people skills have been a large part of the success of the agency.
