"My husband and I worked with Katie to purchase our home and we cannot say enough good things about her! She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, has such a positive outlook and approachable personality, and was so helpful, making sure we thoroughly understood every form we signed and every inspection we scheduled. Katie was also very generous with her time, working overtime to answer the many questions we had over mornings, nights and weekends. We can’t thank her enough for making the home buying process so seamless, and would highly recommend working with Katie whether you are buying or selling a home. " - Mackenzie L.

★★★★★
"My husband and I were making the move back from the East Coast to our hometown of Newport Beach, and we enlisted Katie to find us a rental. Katie was responsive, hard-working and took the time to send videos and pictures of homes when we were out of town and unable to look at properties. She was so helpful during the process and a pleasure to work with every step of the way. In the end she found us a fantastic unit on the water which includes its own private boat slip. A total bonus! We are so appreciative and would highly recommend her! " - Marci V.
