"Kathy first helped us sell our home and consequently helped us find and purchase a new home. Throughout the process Kathy was patient and a good listener. Additionally, she gave us ideas and suggestions to assist us in selling and then, the more challenging part - finding a new home. There are strategies to preparing a house for sale and then optimizing the sale. Kathy assisted with suggestions for the best staging and brought in an excellent photographer for an impressive presentation. She was also very up front about the plus/minus of putting our home on the market during a particular time of year. Form the asking price, to receipt of offers and final acceptance Kathy was very hands on and effective in her advice. There really is no substitute for experience. She stayed engaged throughout escrow as well. Purchasing a new home brings a different set of challenges and Kathy was again a great resource for us. Weekly emails on possible homes seen on 'caravan' plus availability for quick visits was so helpful. Suggestions for various areas to look at also helped in terms of expanding our thought, selection process. When the right opportunity presented itself, again her experience and accurate view of the market helped us on the way to an accepted offer. Kathy is a consistent, upbeat professional who combines her years of experience with a fresh, personalized approach."
