My philosophy about real estate is that I am here to help two parties (buyer and seller) find each other and complete a transaction as smoothly as possible. Buying and selling homes can be emotional experiences, and I am here to ensure you have a professional advocate to help you through the necessary steps. My job is to obtain the best price, terms and conditions for my client. I also believe real estate transactions are far more satisfying to both parties when closing is a pleasant experience for everyone, and my goal is to do everything I can to relieve the stress, and help problem solve through any issues that may arise.

I pride myself on being a pleasant REALTOR® to work with. I stride to always communicate respectfully, professionally and in a timely manner with all parties involved. I also take a personal interest in every client I work with. The sale and/or purchase of your home is as important to me as it is to you. That is my commitment to you! I look forward to helping make your next real estate transaction a pleasant and painless experience, and hopefully even a little fun!

Kate's Testimonials

Oh my goodness! Kate was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional, knowledgable and had such a positive impact on our overall experience. Her marketing skills were so impressive with our condo, that we were surprised at what a gem we actually had. Although we had some hiccups along the way, Kate helped talk us through different options and strategies to get our place sold. If there was an option for 6 stars she would get it. Highly, highly recommend!

Joe

We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Kate when selling our first home. Her knowledge, initiative, timely communication, attentiveness, and humor were able to put us at ease during a very stressful and overwhelming time. She was there every step of the way to guide us through the process. Would highly recommend Kate!
