“Kathy was amazing. She walked us through the process and was extremely professional. She was very patient with us while we waited for our other house to sell. (It took awhile!) 

I know she had other clients, but she always made us feel as if we were her top priority. Finally, she showed us houses that she was the listing agent. We never felt as if she was selling those houses more than any other. 

We have bought and sold houses before and working with Kathy was a real pleasure!”
Jonathan and Jana, Buyers

“Kathy worked very hard for us.”
John and Linda, Seller


“Kathy spent many hours with us and we never felt pressured to do anything. We took her advice to heart and appreciated her input and guidance. Couldn't have done it without her. She was very honest and upfront with us on the market conditions. 

Everything went smoothly, thanks to Kathy. She did a great job and made a terrific brochure explaining all of the details of our home. The photos were terrific. Wow..she went above and beyond in the category of skill in handling the sale from offer to closing! I am sure she will remember this sale for some time. I can’t say enough good things about your agency and Kathy, in particular.

She made our experience easy. She handled all of the difficult parts of this transaction which eased our minds. We enjoyed working with her and admire and respect her. I can’t thank her enough for all of the hard work getting the property sold for top dollar!"
Brian and Shelley, Seller

I would highly recommend you to anyone selling or buying a home. I always knew I could count on you to be honest, fair, and to look out for my best interests. I appreciate every thing you did and all of your time and efforts.”

"Kathy is the best! She is beyond any doubt the best real estate agent we have worked with. Would recommend her to anyone!"

"Bravo!! Kathy did a thorough market analysis. She constantly kept us updated and made helpful suggestions. She stressed all the advantageous aspects of our home and neighborhood. We could not be more pleased than we are with Kathy."
Stephen, Seller
 
"Kathy understood our tastes very well. Even when we took a year break from our searching, she remembered just what we wanted Kathy was so helpful every step of the way. As first time homebuyers we had many questions, which she was always willing and able to answer. She kept our preferences top of mind and was flexible with our hectic schedules."
Steven, Buyer

"Kathy is simply outstanding in every way. She really knows the business and the market and the neighborhoods.  The house to be sold needed a lot of updates and she knew exactly what to do and who to hire to do it.  She supervised everything because we live in another state.  The house had three viewings on the first day and within 36 hours we had an offer which was accepted.  

"Her online listing was so good that the first viewer (who ended up being the buyer) called for a showing while Kathy was on her way back from putting the sign in the yard!  We have bought and sold properties before and this was by far our best experience.  We think Kathy should be your Realtor, too."
Mark and Sandra, Sellers


“Kathy has extensive knowledge of the local market and current sales environment. The pictures she took of my home were professional and flattering. Kathy is quite knowledgeable about the technical aspects and details of handling the offers and counteroffers during the sales process. She fully understands the 'fine print' and I would have been lost without her. I am very satisfied with the overall experience in working with Kathy.”
