Clients are saying:
"Katie is a very professional realtor. She has a unique ability to work between different types of clients in a way that makes both feel equally understood and protected. She does her homework which makes both buying and selling easier than it would otherwise be with a less prepared/connected relator. She is prepared and thinks ahead in terms of next steps, options and brings a fact-based point of view that builds confidence as the transaction evolves. She is also very strong in terms of communication and follow up."
"Katie is fantastic. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and I couldn't think of a better professional to partner with on the sale or purchase of a home."
"Katie is a seasoned and extremely knowledge professional who is a pleasure to work with!"
"Katie was AMAZING!! She is the most responsive agent I have ever dealt with. Any time I asked her a question she would get back to us immediately. She asked many questions up front so she could hone in on specific areas to make our one house hunting trip a success. She held our hand every step of the way and I truly felt like she had our best interest at heart. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone."
"Katie made our home-buying process a complete breeze and pleasure. We found our place on our first trip and able to negotiate a great deal. She then went above and beyond by helping us arrange to have it painted and carpets cleaned before moving in. An absolute pleasure working with her, we've already started referring her to family and friends."
