Clients are saying:
"Kathy is one in a million. I’ve bought and sold properties over the years dealing with multiple realtors. She went beyond what most realtors would do for their clients. Kathy was always there anytime day or night to help me sell a home that was part of an estate. She communicated every step to the estate attorney. Very professional, extremely knowledgeable in what and how to handle the sale of the estate assets."
"We could not be more happy with the wonderful experience we had with Kathy! Kathy was in touch with us every few days, keeping us informed and making sure that all of our questions were answered. There is no other person in any business that I would recommend as highly as I do Kathy. I have never met a realtor that makes both the buyer and the seller feel so comfortable throughout the process."
"Kathy is a professional Salesperson, and a sweet, sweet lady! If you'd like to have someone help you through the Real Estate process in a friendly and pleasant manner, and who can also help keep the anxieties to a minimum - you should be using Kathy! We were making an interstate move, with only a literal few minutes visiting the house we bought, yet Kathy's ongoing communication and reporting of details were invaluable. Beyond that, or should we say, "above that", she kept us in prayer all along the way, as we staged and sold our SC home, and contracted for our MI home!"
"Kathy is absolutely top notch: Extremely knowledgeable, high touch and loyal. I have found many of the real estate folk in the area to be sort of part timers, having closed up their careers elsewhere and fallen into real estate in Harbor Country. Not so with Kathy, she is the consummate, local professional you are lucky to have as your advocate in a transaction. She saves you time, pitfalls and money."
"It was such a pleasure to work with Kathy. We explained to her what we wanted, which was somewhat uncommon, and she was able to use her expertise to bring us just the right type of property. She is assertive without being pushy and incredibly knowledgeable. We feel incredibly lucky to have found Kathy and would refer her to anyone else looking for property in Southwest Michigan."
