Real Estate Education: I was licensed by the Pennsylvania Real Estate Board in 2005; in the subsequent 19 years, I have completed the mandatory continuing education courses that Real Estate agents must complete every two years to maintain their licensure.
In addition to the Real Estate license, many other agents and I choose further to educate ourselves about the ethics of our profession. It is a costly designation, but it keeps my clients and myself in the know and on top of the letter of the law; it holds us to a very high standard of ethics.
Realtor®: My designation as a Realtor distinguishes me and all Realtors as highly trained in the ethics of Real Estate, per The National Association of Realtors or NAR: The term REALTOR® is a trademark identifying the Agent as a member of the National Association of REALTORS®; Agents who subscribe to the NAR Code of Ethics.

"Kay Barchetti is a superior agent who goes above and beyond when it comes to marketing and getting results. She stands out against other agents with her all in approach on marketing your home. Other agents that I interviewed were only interested in "getting the listing" and would come back with the standard 25 photo spread that they would put up on their website. That would be the extent of their marketing for a seller. They had no real original thought around what it takes to sell a home. Kay is the complete opposite. She spent time understanding the home, went all in on highlighting thefeatures and getting information ot educate the buyers. Her philosophy of "an educated buyer is better for the seller" is one that yields results. Her efforts and her investment produced a wealth of information for the buyers and the result was a quick and productive sale. When you're looking for an agent, go beyond the standard "fluff" they push to you and ask what they will invest in time and resources for you. How will they differentiate their approach from others? You'll be impressed and understand how special Kay and the approach that she takes is and how it will get you the result you want.

"It was our pleasure to interact with Kay, who assisted us during the buying process when we were looking for a home to settle in Pittsburgh. Since we were first-time home buyers, we weren't exactly familiar with the ins-and-outs of the process and had lots of questions at times. Kay was with us all along the way - She guided us throughout the process, answered all of our questions and always got back quickly to our texts/phone calls. Overall, in our experience, we feel we couldn't have found a better agent than Kay- She is exceptional at what she does and above all, is an excellent human being with whom we had the pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend her services if we hear someone is looking to buy or sell a home."
"First Kay helped us find an apartment to live in while our home was being sold.The sale of our home took less than a month because Kay held a brokers open which was well attended. She took very attractive photos of the property for various advertisements. She seemed to contact everyone possible to help the sale. She kept us advised of everything regarding the sale. Held tours provided the support required to resolve inspection issues and handle closing, She has the experience and energy and she sold our home quickly and to our satisfaction.-"

"Kay is highly professional yet passionately personal. An impressive combination. We had a situation arise in which I was greatly impressed with her ethics. I found it very reassuring. We took her advice every step of the way and the results were successful. I would never use anyone else to buy or sell. I sincerely believe no one could ever be a better choice.-"
"First, Kay Barchetti sold two investment rental properties for us, one of which she had helped us to buy. Then in 2018, she sold our last home for far more than any had sold for in the neighborhood and she did a fantastic job negotiating for us for our new home, for 1,400,00, which we love! Kay is conscientious, follows up and we could not have had a better agent to help us with the six properties we have bought or sold with her. Calls were either answered or returned immediately and she made the transactions smooth for us.-"
"Kay Barchetti is highly responsive and knowledgeable with regards to the purchasing and selling process. I've worked on several real estate transactions with Kay and always appreciate her level of engagement and responsiveness throughout the process and subsequent to closing. For example, Kay has texted or emailed confirmation of milestone items being met throughout purchase of my home. At times she would confirm well beyond business hours which shows her commitment to remaining on schedule and executing.-"
"Kay Barchetti is one of the best Realtors that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Kay's extensive knowledge of the real estate market and connections has insured top dollars for my property sales and great deals on my property purchases. She is a excellent agent and an even better person.Great experience, all around.-"
"Kay is extremely knowledgeable and energetic. She always puts her client's needs first and will always take time to answer questions or ease any concerns. She represented my business in a sale transaction and was always extremely professional.-"
"We cannot say enough about Kay Barchetti. She helped us buy and sell two properties and through that process, she became not only our realtor, but our friend. Kay is extremely knowledgeable and while giving great advice, always takes the time to listen to our opinions, needs and wants. Kay is kind and caring and always goes that extra mile.-"
"If it hadn't been for our combined determination and Kay's skills, we would not currently be in our dream home! Lake and pet chickens, what more could a girl ask for! Oh yea, a wonderful house and family, too! As my daughter says, Kay helped us to find a home instead of just a house!-"
"Kay Barchetti was amazing to work with. She delivered on her promise to see my parents happy with the decision to lease an apartment and more. When touring the building, we quickly picked up on the fact that she had a great relationship with the current tenants, which speaks for itself. Kay's response time with any format of communication (text, email, voicemail) is unmatched. I hope I don't set the bar too high by saying this but she was always in touch within the same day always. If she needed more time to get an answer, she'd always let us know. We had all the information about the apartment building and community well in advance of the tour date and she even arranged to have us talk to current tenants, which was great and not requested. Since the signing, Kay has been in regular contact to ensure move-in day goes without a hitch.Kay went above and beyond when she provided tips on steps to take when putting my parents house on the market.She is great at helping clients in simplifying difficult tasks and wish there were more professionals out there with her level of skill and customer service!-"
