"I cannot recommend Kate and her team highly enough! Kate did an incredible job helping us navigate an intensely competitive real estate market. She and her team were responsive and timely, and I truly feel that she had our best interests at heart every step of the way. As first time home buyers, we really appreciate how willing Kate was to go over every detail of the buying process with us--no question was too small, and that attention to detail made the process feel so much more manageable for us. She's definitely someone you want in your corner!"

"Kate is driven by her passion for helping people navigate the complex and often scary world of real estate. As a seller, Kate provided me with excellent advice on market readiness and how to properly price my house to sell. She was with me every step of the way, and I couldn't have been happier with the smoothness of the experience - which exceeded my every expectation. As a buyer, Kate helped me identify what I wanted, made the shopping experience super efficient and fun, and she helped me negotiate through a tricky inspection issue. I love my house!" - David

"Kate is a TRUE professional. I know and have done business with hundreds of agents, I am so glad I chose Kate to represent me. She was a true professional and exceeded my expectation. If you are considering another agent make sure you talk to Kate before making your final decision you will be SO GLAD you did!!!"

"Kate is an amazing agent. Her knowledge and resources helped tremendously in my home buying experience. I came into her office not expecting to buy a house in December and ended up closing in August (it would have gone more quickly had it not been for my pickiness). She listens closely and picks up on my preferences to help me find the perfect home for my needs. I highly recommend her."

"Kate is a pro in every sense of the word. She knows the market, knows the city, and quickly gets to know her clients so she can help with exactly what is needed. We put our trust fully in Kate and she delivered! We’re thrilled with how smoothly the selling process went and know that is due to Kate’s expertise."
