"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!"

Kevin and Lorrie M.

"Kathy was excellent throughout the entire process! We are first-time buyers and have only lived in the area for a few years. She was able to get to know us quickly and give us some great recommendations on where to look and what to look for, all while sending us options along the way. My fiancée and I had a few differences in opinions, but she was always great at finding some middle ground between us, what our preferences were, and ultimately found us our perfect starter home! Even during these trying times, she was able to keep things light as to not get us too stressed out. She always told us that SHE was the one that was supposed to stress for us! In the end, the only stress was deciding what color to paint our new basement! Thank you Kathy for your months of help and dedication to finding our new home! I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking for a new home themselves to contact Kathy and work with her in that search!"

"Kathy is knowledgeable and no-nonsense. She is honest and upfront. Plus she is down to earth and has a sense of humor. All qualities I was looking for in a seller's agent. I'm glad I went with my gut feeling and tracked her down! I didn't want someone who would inflate the value of my house and leave me hanging. Good communication, helpful in a pinch, with deep roots in the community. We made a sale quickly and smoothly with her advice. I would definitely recommend Kathy to anyone looking for a local realtor."

Lisa F.

"Kathy is a consummate professional. I recommend her to you without any hesitation or reservation. Not only is she knowledgeable about real estate in the Madison area, but she also listens carefully, gives sound advice based on her years of experience and works as a team player with all the parties in a given transaction. Her greatest attribute is competence coupled with a good sense of humor and a lively personality. She sold a house I inherited in 2019 with the proceeds going to charity and even reduced her commission to increase the size of my donation. It was my good fortune to connect with her."

Mary R.

"We have fully appreciated your friendly professionalism, and prompt, responsive and clear guidance! Your cheerful and optimistic outlook has made the process go smoothly..."
