"Five stars for Kate Blalack, no question! Kate was my Realtor for both sale and purchase. Both deals were tricky for different reasons. She's an incredible combination of heart, intellect, and grit. She's very honest and real and not "real estate agent-y". She's soft and kind and then an awesome negotiator when that's what's needed. I really don't think we could have pulled this off without her. Immensely grateful that she is in this profession, and was our guide throughout these last couple of months."
"Worked with Kate on my first rental property. She was amazingly helpful at every step of the way, from locating properties to managing inspections to docs, closing and beyond. She a pleasure to work with, being patient with my side and persistent with theirs. Got it done in record time, to boot. Would highly recommend her and look forward to our next deal!"
"It goes without saying that selling a house can be a stressful process. We initially attempted to sell our house on our own, and when our efforts failed, we enlisted Kate’s help. Already weary of showings, Kate gently cheered us on through each open house and numerous showings with a steady and quiet confidence. She calmly assured and reassured us that we would be successful in meeting our goal and kept us abreast of important communications with buyers’ agents. She was readily accessible whenever we had a question, and her follow-through was excellent. Kate strategically negotiated the final sale with skill and finesse. She is an excellent realtor, and I recommend her services without reservation."
"Kate is a trustworthy, knowledgeable realtor, with a solid understanding of the local market. She patiently helped us figure out our needs and close on our home within just a couple of months. As newcomers to purchasing real estate, she made the process easy for us. We will absolutely work with Kate for any future real estate ventures."
"Kate Blalack is the best realtor anyone can have. She is completely knowledgable about all the details and legalities associated with buying and selling real estate in the Boulder area. But she goes way beyond that in being both thorough and creative in the way she handles these transactions. She has good contact with the other agencies that are necessary in dealing with property transfers. She is also the kindest and most patient person I've ever had the pleasure of working with."
"I whole heartedly recommend Kate to represent you in the sale of your home. She understands that it is your home and not just a house. She is an excellent listener and is able to explain all that is involved in the sale. She makes herself readily available for questions or concerns and responds in a kind and patient manner. Her strong work ethic and welcoming personality culminated in the result of bringing in 7 solid offers. She is someone I strongly believe in and would be glad to work with again."
Now, many years (and homes!) later, she deeply understands not only the ins and outs of the dynamic local market, but that buying or selling real estate often represents a significant life transition. As your Realtor, Kate is here to guide you and manage the details every step of the way so you can focus on what matters most. Whether working with multimillion dollar listings, investment properties, or affordable housing, her clients appreciate her responsiveness, patience and attention to detail.
