  • Kathryn listed and sold my home

      I am so thankful that Kathy guided us through the buying and selling process. She was calm, positive, reassuring, consistent and patient every step of the way and I was confident that she had our best interests at heart.

    • Kathryn helped me buy a home

        Kathy has been my Realtor and Property Manager for several multi-family properties she sold to me over the years. Her level of Professionalism and Integrity are unmatched. Kathy is a great communicator and is able to find solutions where others find problems. I can not imagine finding a more complete or Trustworthy agent anywhere.

      • Kathryn listed and sold my home

          Over the last 25 plus years I have bought, sold, and re-financed several homes and properties. Every time I have made the cavalier assumption that, “this will be easy and straight forward”. And not once were any those transactions not overly complicated in some unexpected way. A year ago, my wife and wanted to sell our house and buy a new one. Simple and straight forward. The market was hot, and we were clear on all aspects of selling and purchasing. Kathy Townsend was our seller and buyer agent. We were under contract for purchase and shortly thereafter under contract for sale. Closing dates on the calendar. And then it all went south with a fury. Our seller backed out. Came back. Backed out. Came back. And then backed out again for a total of three times! We finally walked as we were losing our minds. Our buyers were with us through the roller coaster with several extensions. And just when we were finally under contract with another house, our buyers decided that our house was not for them! They backed out. Freak out again! All this while managing business and lives. The moral of the story is that Kathy was amazing. She was calm, focused, had seen this all before, and clearly directed and managed us to get beyond the emotional upheaval and get us back into the operational mind-set of “let’s get this done”. We got the house ready for showing over the weekend. Showed on a Monday. And we were under contract by Wednesday. It’s never going to be as easy or as straight forward as you think. A well experienced broker is worth every penny of commission. I run my own business and always say…surround yourself with the smartest and most experienced folks in the room to help you be successful. Kathy is in the room for all things real estate.

        • This is the second house we bought with Kathryn Townsend and both were smooth and enjoyable experiences with a woman who knows her business and has your best interest at heart. Im extremely hard of hearing, but with Kathy on your team no one is going to try and slip a fast one by you lol. I might decide to move one more time Kathy, when we do youll be the first one I call.
