"My fiancé and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to work with! Kathy was there for every need we had and was always a phone call away to answer any of our questions. She made the purchase of our very first home greater than we ever could've imagined. We will definitely refer her to anyone we know looking to buy a home."

McKenzie R.

"Kathy was fantastic to work with throughout the entire process. From scheduling showings on a dime, to explaining documents, to giving advice - her knowledge and professionalism were top notch. She was honest, trustworthy and patient - we never felt pressured or rushed in our search. We could not have had a better experience."

Zack G.

"We are returning "home" after being away for 15 years and immediately thought of Kathy to help refamiliarize ourselves with the Madison neighborhoods. Kathy has a great deal of knowledge about the local housing market and provided helpful insights about how to approach our search from a distance. Even though we were initially just testing the market and thinking through our needs, Kathy was in tune with our interests and reached out when a house became available that ticked most of the boxes. We had to move quickly from out of state and she was responsive and ready with referrals for financing and inspection. Kathy was a tremendous resource for us!"
