Ratings & Reviews

Totally professional. In this market, she was able to market a property to accomplish a signed strong deal in less than 30 days. The property closed within 3 more weeks when no other agent could even bring an offer. Her listing price and negotiation provided a final selling price higher than I had thought possible.

Showed home in 2011 in Old Brooklyn, Brooklyn, OH 44144.

Kathy Holmes was very nice in the beginning. I call her a few days before I wanted to see some houses. I told her what houses I wanted to see and she said that she would take care of it and get back to me later that day. In the mean time I got my letter of approval for a loan and confirmed with her in the same day. Well she called me the day we were suppose to see the houses and said she could not show me the houses. She said that she was to busy and it was out of her way. Now I could not believe what she is telling me at this point. I called her days earlier to make this happen and she failed me. I call her to complain and she kept hanging up on me. So after I left her a nasty message I added that she was missing out because I had a 40k down payment on a house. That sure changed her tune and she ended up calling me back and we ended up seeing the houses. All I can say is she is not out for the customers best interest, only hers.

What this buyer does not mention is that I had a scheduling conflict w/ an out of town buyer . I ended up splitting my day with the out of town buyers-- showed them their first round of homes before I met this fella -sent them to lunch for a few hours-- showed this guy the homes he wanted to see-- and then joined back up with the out of towners for an afternoon run. I never said I was too busy-- I said I had a conflict-- and it was the night before -- not the day of. I made things work for this guy-- Not because of money-- and anybody that has ever worked with me knows I am one of the least money-motivated agents in the business -- but because he had tried to set things up days in advance and because I was able to make things work with the cooperation of the other buyers. So-- MR-- berate me all you want. Sometimes things just happen. You had all of my attention the hours we spent together that day and I did a good job for you. I hope you found a house that you love-

Bought a home in 2007 in Newbury Center, Newbury, OH 44065.

Kathy Holmes was a wonderful buyers agent! It took me quite a bit of time to get up the nerve to actually by my own home, and Kathy showed me properties for about 2 years until I found the perfect one! She never complained I was too much of a problem, or too slow, or too demanding, she just kept providing me with possibilities. Kathy walked me through the whole process, as this was first time buying on my own, and she was right there with me the day I got the keys. I was so happy with her, that when my Daughter & her Husband decided to buy a home, Kathy was the only agent I recommended to them. She helped them find a beautiful home in Mentor, and again was there whenever they had a problem or question. Kathy has great knowledge of many properties in both Geauga & Ashtabula County, and isn't afraid to research what she doesn't know. Kathy has kept in contact with both myself and my daughter, making sure we are still happy, and though she will always be our Best Agent, she has turned into a wonderful agent. I would highly recommend her for her skills and thoughtfulness.

I personally have bought and sold through Kathy Holmes. Kathy has expansive knowledge of larger properties, recereation properties, homesteads, etc... She can also find you the smaller home you might be searching for.

She knows her stuff and I have recommended her to friends. Give her a call if you are looking to buy or sell, as I know she can help either way.

Bought a home in 2010 in Atwater Center, Atwater, OH 44201.

Kathy was a wonderful help to our family in our search for a second home. She walked us through the search process, gave us much needed advice, and was instrumental in negotiations and the closing process. We recommend her highly!
