" Kathryn was great to work with! Her experience and expertise helped guide us towards finding our perfect home. She gladly walked us through the home buying process and knew exactly what to look for in a house. Kathryn will ensure that you find your perfect home as she did with us! We truly appreciate how thoughtful and patient she was with us throughout this emotional roller-coaster that is house hunting." -Jeff Lim & Gladys Reyes

★★★★★
" It is not often one returns so many times to the same source, but, we have now used Kathryn several times to either help us purchase or sell a home. Kathryn recently "dazzled" us once again. She found a home for us to buy on short notice five years ago and has now helped us sell the same home recently. Kathryn is one of those unique individuals that are able to please both the buyer and seller. She goes out of her way to assure all parties are professionally treated and works hard to make sure the sale is completed on time. Her approach is personal and thorough. We couldn't be happier with her efforts." - Randy & Shiela James

★★★★★
" When we were looking to buy, Kathryn was extremely responsive and willing to schedule viewings for us, even on short notice. She had great insights into neighborhoods and the current state of the market, giving us the best chance to create the winning bid. When selling, Kathryn was full of great ideas on how to prepare our house and worked hard to see those ideas become reality. She helped us review the initial inspection report to determine which items should be prioritized and which are better left alone. She organized multiple contractors and met with them herself to oversee the changes. She kept us updated every step of the way during the process from beginning to end. She went above and beyond all of our expectations. Our house looked beautiful and received several competing bids. We especially appreciated Kathryn's help with preparing our house for sale. We had seen some of her previous work and specifically chose her for her ability to transform an older house into something fresh and desirable. She did such a wonderful job. We'll definitely be referring people to Kathryn when the opportunity comes up." -John Stockbauer & Cathryn Zhang

" YOU HAVE TO HIRE KATHRYN! SHE IS THE BEST! We have known Kathryn Lister for several years as our real estate consultant. In 2012 when the market was at a low, she encouraged us to invest $30,000 toward updating our West Bellevue home and she sold it in 30 days for $230,000 more than another agent wanted to list our home for just a month earlier. At the same time, Kathryn found us an amazing mid-century modern ranch in an upscale neighborhood; negotiated both ends of each deal so that we had sufficient funds to remodel our new home. What a wonderful trade and more than just a move. It put us in a lovely home in a great neighborhood, and from a real estate perspective, it put our family in a very strong equity position. Better home, more equity – great broker. When it came time to sell our home, we could not be there to complete a kitchen remodel we had been planning because we had to be in Colorado looking for a home, kids, school, work, and life. Kathryn stepped in and brought in a great contractor and worked with him to select materials and complete a beautiful kitchen – helping us get a top sale price. Home sold in 12 hours after the open house. Kathryn possesses a rare and winning combination of determination, optimism, depth of market knowledge, negotiating savvy, and style. Her guidance in our real estate transactions was truly life-changing. Our advice, HIRE KATHRYN!!" -George and Valerie Amburn
