“I loved having Kathy as our agent when we were looking for a home in Brookline. She worked hard to help us submit a winning bid under less-than-ideal, highly competitive circumstances. She took time to understand our priorities and needs from the beginning. Kathy is bright, energetic, a creative thinker and a terrific listener, and, on top of it all, fun to be with! I highly recommend her.”

“We know Kathy well in her Realtor role, on both the selling and buying sides. Kathy helped us buy our first home in 2011. In 2018, she helped us sell it, and she also helped us buy a new, larger home. Real estate transactions can be such personal experiences that at this point Kathy feels like family.
“In a hot seller’s market in which most buyers worked for months without scoring, Kathy helped us score our new home on our first try. She got us in right away, advised us accurately on what we would need to offer to seal the deal, and we landed it. By the time we were selling our previous home, the market had shifted. Although we eventually walked away with a significantly nice gain on our investment, the market response wasn’t as robust as we had expected. Kathy helped us understand the shifting market and recalibrate our expectations, which was really important in getting the deal done in a timely manner. Kathy's guidance about how to prepare our place for maximum effect was quite helpful, too.
“We had initially mulled over the idea of buying our first home without hiring a Realtor, but that idea seems insanely misguided to us at this point. Our 2018 transactions, in particular, were not simple ones. Kathy, along with her impressive network of professionals (lawyers, bankers, fix-it guys, painters, you name it), always knew exactly what to do. Most impressive is Kathy's breadth of knowledge and skill, and how deeply her expertise runs across that entire breadth. She's a master in reading, negotiating with, and coming to productive resolution with buyers, sellers, and their agents. She's equally impressive at identifying a property’s areas of concern and calling in appropriate experts to evaluate them. The net effect of this skill set is that I had this sensation that all I needed to bring to the table was the desire for a deal to happen and the resources to support the deal. The rest was just magically taken care of by Kathy.
“There are very few professionals that I would recommend wholeheartedly to anyone at all, but Kathy is one of them. It is honestly shocking that Realtors as good as Kathy exist. There should be another name for all the things she does that go beyond where other Realtors seem to stop. If New England real estate could be described like the English legal model, Kathy would be the barrister and all other agents solicitors. (Only barristers are allowed in court.)"

“Buying a new home is something that we do so infrequently, yet as it is such an emotional decision, it is easy to get so caught up in the moment that there is a risk that you won’t make good decisions. Or, conversely, you might go in with so much caution that you’ll miss a really wonderful opportunity. Having somebody as experienced as Kathy made me feel simultaneously at ease and confident! She kept me from making decisions out of panic in a competitive market, yet knew – perhaps better than I did - what I actually was looking for. Through fantastic communication, an aggressive yet disciplined process, and sound analysis, she helped me find a condo in a great neighborhood. Now that I’ve lived in this home for over a half year, I am impressed with what a great fit it is. I deeply appreciate Kathy’s help in identifying this property and knowing how well it would fit my needs. It was delightful working with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the Boston area."
