Whether buying or selling real estate, Kathy works diligently to make the transaction go smoothly from beginning to end. Listening to the client's wants and needs is Kathy's first priority. Professional, friendly, hard working, straight talking and possessing a wry sense of humor are some of the ways her clients have described her. Most importantly though, they have frequently said that she goes above and beyond, is willing to go the extra mile, and gets the job done.

"Kathy was very professional and timely with preparations for listing my property. The brochure was excellent and showed my place to the best advantage. The offer and acceptance process went very smoothly and she was quick to provide answers and prevent anything from slowing the closing."

"Kathy sat down with us before we put our house up for sale and explained everything involved e.g. what projects needed to be done before the sale, the price range we could expect, the time period before we put the house on the market, in other words, everything. She prepared us for everything! We were astounded when Kathy sold our house in ONE DAY!! We can't say enough wonderful things about Kathy. She made a difficult time very easy on us. We are grateful for her hard work because it lightened our load."
