"Kate was referred to us from an out of state realtor as we were moving to NC from FL. We were immediately impressed with her during our remote interactions. Apart from 1 house hunting trip and inspection/closing, all of our interactions with Kate were remote.

Our recommendations above reflect how we felt about Kate's expertise as a realtor - her expertise is top notch. What sets Kate apart is her people skills, passion for the business and deep network developed over many years.

Kate took time to really understand our needs. She dealt with several difficult situations other realtors and sellers with patience and understanding, leading to success in each case. Kate wears her passion on her sleeve and it translates to action. She is from 3 generations of realtors and clearly wants, and does, represent realtors and their work at the highest level of professionalism.

Due to living in the Raleigh area her whole life and being a realtor for many years, she has developed a great network that she leverages well. She was able to provide us contacts and information for all of our questions - and we ask alot!

If we decide to move again, we would not even consider working with another realtor.

"Kate is a fantastic realtor. I have known her a long time and she is a Raleigh native. She handled a recent sale for us and it went smoothly despite Covid-19. Call her, especially if you are considering inside the beltline!"

★★★★★
"Kate is absolutely wonderful. Kate has sold us two homes and feels like a member of the extended family. One day she'll sell us our third.

She knows the area in the way only a native could. She takes the time to understand your needs. Depending on your personality - she'll do the research for you, or sit back and let you drive. She is a tactful negotiator who will also keep your expectations in check.

The missus and I are a type of very demanding clients who most realtors dread. Not Kate. Even when we were on what felt like our 30th showing, Kate always had a smile and a cheerful disposition.

"In 2019 I had the opportunity to work with Kate to one property and then later in the year buy another property, a 2nd home. Kate has smart strategies for getting your home sold, the final offer on the small town home I was selling came in fast and within a month we had closed. When I was looking for a home on a lake Kate searched the state for me and in a few trips to various lakes understood exactly what I was looking for, negotiated a great price for me and I was very happy."

★★★★★
"Kate has assisted our family in every personal residence we have purchased. She is a market expert, focuses on the details and takes the stress out of the process!

★★★★★
"I have never known a Realtor who knocked themselves out for their clients more than Kate Kenney. Her level of service and enthusiasm were unbelievable!"

★★★★★
"There are no words to compare the difference between our prior experiences and working with Kate Kenney. She is our real estate hero!"

★★★★★
"Kate set us up for success from the starting-gate. She took the time to talk with us to understand the type of home, the 'feel' of the home and area we desired. One thing we both sincerely appreciated while working with Kate, was her responsiveness. She was quick to answer texts, and even if she didn't have an answer at the time, we knew she would follow up. By far, Kate is the most professional and engaged realtor either of us have worked with. Kate went the extra mile! Kate's knowledge of Raleigh and history living and working in the area are unparalleled. We tend to consider her a living 'toolbox' for everything Raleigh!"

★★★★★
"Kate is a fantastic Realtor. In 2020 she handled the sale of our home in Hayes Barton and it went smoothly despite being in the middle of Covid. Call her especially if you are considering inside the beltline!"

★★★★★
"Our experience was great! Kate helped us find a house in 2020, at a time when both COVID and the housing market were raging. She didn't want to just find us any house; she wanted us to find OUR house....the sign of a true professional. Kate is a veteran real estate professional whom we have known for almost 20 years. If we ever decide to sell, she will be our first call!"

★★★★★
"We were from California so had little knowledge of the area. We knew the type of home we were searching for and Kate put together a very good list for us that didn't cause us to waste a lot of time. She then helped us through the process which is significantly different than California. Her knowledge of the market is exceptional. I would recommend Kate any time."
