The thing I most value in a real-estate broker is honest realism. After a lifetime of experience with fuzzy-thinking people-pleasers, Kathy was a breath of fresh air with her down-to-earth, no-baloney understanding of the market and also of her client. We felt extremely well served by her knowledge, her directness, her sensitivity to our needs and wants, and her determination to satisfy us no matter how much effort it took. We have used her on several occasions now and can’t imagine ever choosing another broker.
