Philosophy of Service
Top-notch service - period. That's Kathie's philosophy. She believes in honesty, integrity and straight-talk and consistently goes above-and-beyond to the satisfaction of her clients. Each transaction in which she is involved - from the one bedroom condo to the five bedroom single family home - feels personal to her. And, accordingly is handled with the same level of attention and excellence with which she would treat her own. She truly enjoys working with each buyer and seller - from the first time buyer to the experienced investor. Attentive to every detail, what's important to her clients becomes important to her. She works diligently to understand the needs of her clients and to guide them toward a common goal.

Clients are saying:
""I’ve used Kathie on three separate occasions to buy and sell a home. On one such occasion, me and my fiancé at the time were looking to move to the suburbs and needed to sell both of our condo’s in the city. Kathie was extremely knowledgeable of the current housing market and our target buyers. She worked with us to stage our units, was professional in her dealings with prospective buyers, and attentive to all our needs. Kathie helped us set a strategy and managed our expectations throughout the selling process. Ultimately, she was successful in selling both of our units in a timely manner and for a fair price, which was particularly challenging given this was 2009 and the height of the housing crisis."
