"Kathleen was just what we needed. I had a job transfer and we moved out of state quickly. Kathleen coordinated painting and refinishing floors in the after we moved out. We sold the in less than a week. She did a great job for us." - Jill
"Kathleen made our first experience selling a a pleasure. She explained the process step-by-step to ensure we were comfortable with our decisions and kept us in loop from the first day to the last. She answered questions before we knew to ask and was always available when needed. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!" - Cody
"We started working with Kathleen earlier this year. Now we have a home. This is our first home, and Kathleen guided us through the entire process. She was always very responsive and understanding of our needs. We couldn't have found a better agent for us.
As first time home buyers, we started the home buying process with a list of what we wanted in our ideal home, and that list kept changing throughout the process as market reality sunk in. Kathleen adapted to our ever-changing demands without a problem, showing us houses for sale according to whatever our demands, budget, and locations were at any given time. What we really liked was that she was always available to show us places that had just come up on the market, and so we were often among the first few people to see the place.
We've heard of agents who sometimes frankly and very reasonably advise their client to not make an offer if the chances of that offer being accepted are slim. Not Kathleen; she gave us her opinion but if we really liked a house and wanted to try our luck, she was always willing to write an offer for us regardless of what she thought of our chances of success. We made 3 offers before the one for our new home. She guided us on not only the price but also what other offer terms should be to make the offer attractive.
Kathleen was also a great help during the closing process. She explained things to us every step of the way, communicated with the Seller, our lender, and the closing agent to get things in place, and kept us fully informed.
We're certain to work with her again whenever we next sell or buy a house. " - Nishak
"Kathleen was a wonderful agent to work with. Her expertise made negotiations easy and her great personality helped with getting through the paperwork. She was fair and provided helpful guidance on tough decisions. Was a pleasure to work with and will highly recommend her."
"Kathleen helped me in selling my home in May of 2015. She provided valuable guidance on improvements, as well as coordinated the services to obtain the maximum valuation of the home. As a direct result of all her efforts the home sold within one week, at a price that was significantly above asking. I can unequivocally recommend her services."
