Kim Adu was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, where she spent eight years gaining her education in Catholic school, which led to a Martin Luther King Jr. academic scholarship, as well as an athletic scholarship for soccer. The multi-talented Adu attended Long Island University, where she earned a Bachelor’s in Science in Accounting, as well as an MBA in Finance. After graduating from college, Adu worked for a number of prestigious investment banks, including J.P. Morgan Private Bank, Merrill Lynch, and Salomon Smith Barney. Adu took some time off in late 2001 so she could travel to her father’s birthplace in Ghana, West Africa. She would eventually relocate to Philadelphia in late 2003 to begin her new career in real estate with the city’s market booming. Adu has been with Berkshire Hathaway for 15 years, and specializes in luxury sales, investors in new construction, first-time buyers, millennials and baby boomers, as well as catastrophically injured clientele needing specialized home renovations. Adu has lived in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood since moving to Philadelphia, and during her time in the city, she has volunteered to assist infants as a cuddler at Jefferson Hospital. When she’s not selling homes or spending time with her daughter, Adu enjoys traveling, and locally, she enjoys running on the Schuylkill River Path, working out, and enjoying everything the city of Philadelphia has to offer, including brunching with friends.
