"I have worked with many real estate agents in the past as I have moved several times. I don't always write a review and I don't always use the same real estate agent when I sell. I will tell you, that without hesitation I would absolutely use Katherine again.
Katherine was exceptional. She dropped everything to accommodated all of our needs right from the beginning. This continued throughout the process and she was always there to answer our questions or ease any of our concerns.
We flew in to look at houses and had one day to not only explore neighborhoods but to find the right house. She was brilliant and was able to immediately read our needs as a family. We were not planning to make any decisions, but with her expertise and guidance we felt comfortable enough to make a decision that day. She helped us find the perfect place to call home.
This is where Katherine's value really shines. You want her on your side! With some unforseen circumstances with the house, she was able to navigate through the really tough negotiations with ease. I knew I could trust her to be my eyes and ears as we were still remote. She was always on top of every detail. Never once did I need to ask for an update as a full report was consistently sent our way.
I always felt that she had our best interests at heart. Her ability to get things done was very apparent. She was a formidable force at the negotiation table.
I have also gotten to know a little bit more about her through this process and it has become quite apparent that she is a wonderful human. Her heart is kind and big.
I would be happy to recommend her to anyone. Truly a spectacular experience."

I have known of some of the brokers representing their clients well. However, never did I see the job that Katherine did for me. Her service in getting us help with an estate sales person. a service to clean out the rest of the house, and most of all the fantastic sales price she was able to obtain. All of this she accomplished in a very short amount of time. I would definitely give her a rating of TEN! I will certainly recommend her to any one of my family members or any friends or neighbors."
