"It takes more than knowledge of the area and pricing. It's more about understanding clients needs, the family dynamics and setting expectations. Katie does this with charm and so much grace.

""I have bought or sold 4 properties with Katie and have always found her to be extremely professional, fun to be with and very knowledgeable about the aspects of the market, community and expectations on both sides of the negotiations.

Her knowledge of the market was deep and her suggestions for presenting the property were right on target.
