“When you’re on the market for a house, it’s a very big deal and you need somebody knowledgeable and easy to work with. There are so many realtors to pick from that it becomes a guessing game if you don’t know anyone. We were having a terrible time finding a house. We had talked to multiple realtors, gone way out of our neighborhood radius, and had several homes purchased out from under us. Katie took over and made me realize what a good realtor can be capable of. She’s extremely knowledgeable, very willing to work with budgets and locations, has all of the resources and contacts you could ever need, and she makes the process so fun and relaxing that you almost forget you’re house shopping. She even worked to get our house under contract while she was on vacation. I would recommend her to anyone, buying anything, anywhere on the real estate market. My friends even bought a house with her weeks after me and my fiancé purchased ours, and they shared my exact sentiments. She’s a great person, and an excellent agent who loves her job. So no more guessing about who to talk to, just call Katie and she’ll take care of the rest.” -klkovarik (realtor.com)
