About Kathy

Kathy was recruited by Compass over 20 years ago because of her outstanding reputation in the real estate community. Kathy brings a wealth of history with her as she was born and raised right here in Silicon Valley. She has experienced the change from farm lands and orchards to housing developments and high tech companies.

Before Kathy became a Realtor, she was a teacher in Campbell and also taught in Australia. Coming back to Sunnyvale she was employed with Philips Corporation in sales and marketing. Negotiating multi-million dollar contract with companies such as DEC, Northern Telecom, Morotola and many more, has given Kathy the ability to be a fierce negotiator for you!

Kathy raised her two boys in Sunnyvale attending Santa Clara schools and Archbishop Mitty High. Now they are off on their own journey! That leaves Kathy more time to enjoy her hobbies- bridge, maj jong, reading, gardening and baking when she's not selling real estate.

Selling or buying homes is more about YOU than anything else. Making the process as easy as possible and taking out all of the anxiety and frustration is a priority. Once Kathy sells your a home, you become a part of her extended family.

Compass is dedicated to excellence - and our association with Kathy McKenzie who has been servicing the Silicon Valley home Buyers and Sellers for over 25 years is a bright example.


“We met Kathy at an open house and decided after talking to many agents that she was the right one for us. We were looking for an agent that wasn't pushing and would look out for our best interests. We saw a home that we really liked and Kathy talked us out of it! She pointed out all the things that were wrong with it and said she would find us something better. Well, she did! If you want a honest realtor, then Kathy is for you.”

“When my Mom passed away, I was really distraught. I knew that I had to sell my mother's house, but didn't know what to do or where to start. Kathy took care of everything and reduced my anxiety. She was really caring and kind. If you want a realtor, that is cares then call Kathy.”

“I gave Kathy a very difficult task. I told her that I wanted to sell my house, but I didn't want it on MLS, no open houses, no sign on the property. I told her what price I wanted and she ended up getting me $200K more!!!! She's amazing.”
