Kayla has dreamed of moving to New York City for years, and has friends who have moved there already. In our annual Christmas letter last year, she told everyone that she planned to move to Manhattan in 2018 – and she’s doing it!
She has amassed five solid years of experience here, and is ready for a new challenge. She passed her New York real estate license test this week, and will be joining a successful realtor team in Manhattan next month.
While it will be devastating to not be around her every day to enjoy her sass and wit, we will carry on with our own adventures here, and enjoy watching from afar – and taking an occasional trip there ourselves.
I am incredibly proud of you Kayla, and love that you have the guts to pursue your dreams. It is a big step, but I know you can handle it!
Donna said it best:
Congratulations, Kayla! New adventures await,including in real estate land.
Jim and Donna, incredible parenting! Yoy must be so proud of Kayla.
I hope she will do a “Report from NY” every few months here on bubbleinfo. I’d be an avid reader!
My daughter has told me she’d love to live in NYC, but alas, right now is finishing up her Masters in CO.
I know how much you’re going to miss Kayla, Jim. *Wink* That’s why planes were invented! 🙂
Audition for million dollar listing NY!!!!!
Good for her, there are easier paths should could have chosen, yet she is writing her own script and following her own dreams. That says a lot about her – and her parents.
And I agree. She could have coasted into taking over this business, but instead, she goes where the intensity is the highest.
Hopefully she will come back and still take over some day. Her sister Natalie might get involved too, once her dance career is over. (it’s just starting next year)
Thanks everyone for the support! And Dad – thank you for teaching me everything I need to know about real estate! I love you to pieces and know that all the knowledge you have given me will pay off!
This is great! There is no place in the world like NYC. Best of luck to you Kayla!!
Congratulations, Kayla! There’s nothing like working towards a goal and then making it happen! We wish you the best of luck in the Big Apple and keep on reaching for the stars!
Wow. She seems a more Boston kinda gal. Wishing her all the best and looking forward to guest posts and congratulations on Kingle going bicoastal if not national, yet. 😉
And if I can be the tiniest bit negative having grown up in the northeast. I am so looking forward to the comments from a SD and UCLA gal getting her first bit of real winter.
Natalie is the Bruin.
Kayla went to Oregon so she thinks she can handle it because she has seen rain before.
When your parents visit, the only proper place for brunch is Sarabeth’s.
The waffles, the french toast, the pancakes, and the chicken and apple sausage are created like no place else. They make their bakery goods on site, their chefs are artisans. Their french toast is so french, it will make you want to surrender to Germany.
Doh! Apologies to both Kayla and Natalie.
Looking for a chuckle from anyone who knows the difference in weather between Eugene and NYC!
“Looking for a chuckle from anyone who knows the difference in weather between Eugene and NYC!
I don’t know if it merits a chuckle, but something for Kayla to keep in mind metaphorically is, if she winds up with a boyfriend in NYC, and when she’s ready for a date and opens her door, he embraces her and says, “you smell like an Oregon summer rain,” what he means is, “the night is yours, and I will facilitate your every wish.”
However, if she opens her door, and he embraces her and says, “you smell like a Manhattan summer rain,” what he means is, “If you don’t take a bath, I’m not getting in a cab with you.”
It’s not really funny, but it’s true
I get the Eugene joke, I get Donna’s sentiment, and I applaud any young woman out to take on NYC. Positive vibes to you all!!!
The Klinges from L.A. send the Klinges from San Diego our best wishes.
Jim and Donna have done a great job of raising two confident and successful young women.
Best of luck to both Kayla and Natalie in pursuing their dreams and careers
Congrats to you and the family.

Oh daytrip! You almost owed me a keyboard! If I ever get to NYC, I’ll remember your recommendation. Be well…
Thanks John Klinge!
