When we finally made the decision to put our house on the market, Katie was right on point guiding us every step of the way. Our house sold in 4 days – Katie made the whole process go very smoothly and was an excellent negotiator.
- Cher D.
Our house sold in only 3 days and we got a better purchase price than we ever thought possible (higher than any house in our neighborhood). Katie is very knowledgeable of the local market and helped negotiate the price of our new home to something we felt comfortable with.
- Sarah P.
Katie is very sharp, friendly, fun, and professional. Her guidance was very important to us as we negotiated for a house that was in a neighborhood we were not familiar with. We recommend her without reservation.
