Kathleen was the ultimate professional. She was always available and willing to do whatever we needed to fit a house visit into our schedules. What was most helpful, is when we began to feel desperate and thought about stopping our search, she continued to support and encourage us to keep looking and gave us hope - -Wendy

I have purchased several homes and have never experienced the genuine care for finding the right home for a client vs just eager to make a sale. Kathleen made herself available at all hours and was saintly patient! She was able to find me the exact home and neighborhood I was interested in through her diligence. I now consider Kathleen a friend and will recommend her to Anyone I can!!!! -Deborah"

"I met Kathleen about 7 years ago when she helped my husband and me find our current home, and I thought of her again when my elderly parents moved here after a lifetime of living in a rural area out of state. Kathleen and Ryan, along with Jim, helped my parents find a house in less than a month. Their kind and respectful demeanor, their tremendous work ethic, and their clear communication from start to finish made the process much easier than I'd imagined. Kathleen's experience and real estate savvy positioned her to effectively strategize, giving my parents a leg up in this seller's market and allowing them to be the successful bidders on their home (out of 14 other offers!!!). I greatly appreciate the care with which Kathleen and Ryan treated my precious people as they helped them find the perfect home for this new chapter in their lives. Thank you!"

"Kathleen is capable, responsive and patient. She informed me promptly of houses I might want to see, and she made herself available to see homes on short notice. She was patient with my needs and questions and process, and she was an excellent "second set of eyes", pointing out details and pros and cons of homes I check out. I recommend her highly. "

"I recommend Kathleen Hartnett without reservation. She was referred by a friend for whom she had found a house when his family was young, and sold that house for him when the kids were grown 25+ years later. Based on his strong recommendation I met Kathleen and she took time to fully understand our goals and the needs of our growing family, which required a 5 bedroom house. Kathleen sent us houses to consider which fell right within our defined parameters and worked closely with us as we narrowed the list to those we wanted to visit with her. I spent a good deal of time over the ensuing months with Kathleen, and enjoyed it very much. As a parent herself she has an appreciation of what will, and will not, work for kids, and is an area expert when it comes to schools and other key items we factored into our decision Our search was complicated by the fact that the kids and their mother remained at home in Europe while I did the preliminary search with Kathleen’s guidance and input, and flew in to tour ‘shortlisted’ homes, one of which we happily purchased. Kathleen was a valued adviser throughout the process, through to the closing. I am grateful to Kathleen for her counsel and guidance (and to the pal who introduced her to us) and recommend her highly. "

"Wonderful experience with Kathleen Hartnett. Extremely knowledgeable about local residential market. Organized, accessible and very attuned to clients' needs. Makes great use of all available tools to make the buying and selling processes efficient. Would use again and have recommended to family & friends."

"Kathleen worked for several years with us until we found what we were looking for - we must have looked at 100 houses. She was very patient with our ever-changing needs. She was very in-tune with what we wanted, our budget and the market in Lower Merion. She kept me in the loop on new listings and many homes before they were listed. Once we found the perfect place, she was great to work with in the negotiating process, both as a buyer and a seller. She helped us negotiate a fair price for our new home. As a seller, Kathleen gave us great feedback on preparing our home for sale, helped us get some last minute projects done through her many connections and our house was sold in the first week on the market- for a great price. All around our experience with Kathleen was excellent and I would recommend her to anyone looking in the competitive real estate market in the Lower Merion area."
