Kate Wilkins's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Kate Wilkins

    • Kate has represented me (an out of area buyer and seller) in numerous transactions as both a buyer (three times) and as a seller (two times) with two homes (in Sierra Meadows and Tahoe Donner) and a condominium (in Tahoe Donner). One purchase was an REO property, one purchase was with an elderly out-of-state seller with a transaction that required court approval, and one was a "normal" purchase in which Kate's professional judgement and negotiation skills played a huge part in achieving a successful purchase. She is very knowledgeable in all types of purchase transactions, to say the least.On the sales side, Kate's suggested pricing, use of a professional photographer and effective marketing of both properties resulted in quick (and fair) sales.From a personal standpoint, Kate excels in making you feel like you are her only client. She replies quickly to all inquiries and questions, she is very knowledgeable and decisive and always seems to be available to answer even the most basic questions. She is wonderful to work, is very helpful and has a very upbeat and positive attitude. One trait that I have especially appreciated is that she communicates effectively with all parties involved with the transaction - the other listing/selling agent, escrow, inspectors, etc. - you name it and she has it covered. She then gives you timely updates on all matters whether via phone call, text message or email. Overall, I have relied on Kate tremendously and she has come through time and time again. Quite frankly, I cannot imagine using anyone else and recommend her highly!!

    • Kate helped us find our perfect condo in the Tahoe area. She was fantastic. Kate was super helpful and very flexible, always accommodating and ready to show us properties with minimal notice. She knows the grater North Lake Tahoe area well and gave very useful information and advice. She walked us through the purchasing process and along the way she put us in touch with other professionals in the area that we used during the buying process. We give Kate our highest recommendations! (And we have purchased two homes and sold two homes in the past 18 months, so we have some recent experience working with agents.)

    • If there was a scale of ten stars I would give Kate Wilkins ten stars. But there are only five stars available so I am giving her the maximum recognition possible for her outstanding commitment to selling my 4-Plex and Duplex properties in North Lake Tahoe. She had a strategy, was organized, focused and stayed on top of all things, including dealing with slow-paced contractors from the Tahoe area. My properties sold at premium price with multiple offers due to Kate's commitment. Thank you, Kate!
