Meet the K&K owners, Kevin and Kelvin -

Kevin Yoakum

Kevin has been married to Brenda, who is a teacher, for over 25 years and they have three children: Madison, Jamie, and Kale. His father was a carpenter by trade, so Kevin became familiar with tools and the building process at a very young age. Throughout his high school years, he helped his father. The next seven years he took part in building custom homes with a local builder. His experiences included many of the skills that he uses now: kitchen cabinetry, trim, moldings, entertainment centers, headboards and other wood furnishings- just to name a few. Kevin and Kelvin have both been on the management side of real estate as they have managed rental property also. It was only natural that Kevin continued down the real estate path when establishing his own home building business.

Kelvin Langmaid

Kelvin has been married to Genevieve, who is an RN in the OR, for over 32 years and they have two children: Grant, who has been in the Marines and served two tours in Iraq, and works as a Biologist at a Federal Fish hatchery in NM and Jessica, who has Culinary Arts training and works in food services for a retirement community.. They keep busy in their spare time by participating in church activities and working on their farm where they live. Kelvin has earned an Associated Arts Degree and has always been interested in the home building industry. He worked on numerous construction projects before making the decision to start a business with his friend, Kevin, whom he met while working at their previous place of employment.

Abbey is the CENTURY 21 Signature Real Estate REALTOR® that K&K Homes, Inc, works with to sell their beautiful homes. Originally from Reinbeck, Iowa, Abbey has "had a great journey so far in life" and has lived in various locations throughout the US but moved back to the Midwest several years ago to be closer to her family that continues to multiply.

She's also been known to skydive, snowmobile, paraglide and dirt bike… but only when the situation warrants it. Supporting various organizations that represent causes that have touched her life in various ways is very important to her, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s Marathon Team in Training, MS Society, Race for the Cure, Mission Jamaica Robin’s Nest Orphanage, and the Special Olympics.

"I love real estate and I think I have the most amazing clients out there. It may be because I have built my business by referral and good people keep referring good people! A self-professed over-communicator at times, I enjoy meeting new people and assuring that all client needs are being met through clear and concise communication… with a little bit of humor thrown in for good measure."
