Ratings & Reviews

Katherine Trousdale is the best. I would contact her again to handle any of my real estate needs and I would recommend her to anyone who needs real estate assistance, whether buying, selling, or looking to rent, residential or commercial. She handled my current home purchase located in Whittier, NC. From start to finish she was courteous, thorough, and professional. She knows this area completely. She researched properties and drove tirelessly to countless homes so I could look at them. When I finally settled on my choice, Katherine looked after every detail of the purchase process. She always returned my calls or e-mails in a timely manner and answered all my questions clearly and with understanding. Her negotiation skills reduced the overall cost of the property. She made sure to provide all needed paperwork and walked me through all necessary steps. I recommend her without reservation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Bryson City, NC.

Katherine is awesome! She knows the market and is extremely helpful. Katherine showed us a range of houses so we could get familiar with the market and comfortable with our purchase and know we were making the right decision. We have moved around the country a lot and have worked with many realtors and Katherine was the best.

Bought a home in 2014.

Katherine Trousdale was a very professional and knowledgable agent. She was very friendly and patient in our search for the right home. We gave her quite a list of wants, which seemed impossible to fulfill. Every wish list item and more was granted. Katherine has gone above and beyond answering questions about the area and helping us find people for different jobs since our closing. She is a gem and came highly recommended. We were more than satisfied with her services, which has turned into a friendship.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in North Port, FL.

Katherine listed and sold our home in less than one week. She put us in touch with another agent in the state we were moving too and made finding a new home easy and worry free. All paper work was taken care of at both ends and we had only to move in to the new house. She is a no nonsense worker and knows her business.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Bryson City, NC.

In the process of house hunting, you end up spending a lot of time with a realtor. While it's essential that this person is an expert, it's a real pleasure when they're fun to be with. With Katherine Trousdale, we got both and then some!

Katherine made the process of finding our mountain cabin a joy. Her knowledge of the marketplace is unmatched. She offered excellent advice on which properties would meet our needs, and she went to bat for us on numerous occasions with difficult sellers. She even let our dog ride along in her vehicle. We had so much fun house hunting, it was a little sad when we finally closed on a place. But it's the perfect place and we love it.

I heartily recommend Katherine for your real estate needs. I know we'll be calling her again when we need our next place. As an added bonus, her husband, Denny, is a mortgage broker (and a heck of a nice guy) who helped us secure financing. This dynamic duo is unbeatable!

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 in Sylva, NC.

My wife and I met Katherine in late November 2008 and described to her the type of home we wanted. We looked at Several homes and had a great time looking no pressure easy going. In January 2009 we moved to our new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Almond, NC.

We were looking for a second home. My husband's brother had used Catherine and refered us. We told her what we were looking for and she sent an extensive list that matched our criteria. She also sent one that didn't fit one big aspect of our criteria, but it was in the location we preferred and was a value for the money ( which was huge on my husband's list). That is the home we ended up purchasing. Since we did get a value, we are able to make it the second home we dreamed of! Thank you Catherine for making our North Carolina dream come true.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Bryson City, NC.

I called Katherine regarding one of her listings and she showed me several in my desired location and price range. The negotiation process was tough at points and Katherine was aces! She knows the local market incredibly well, is involved in the community, and responded very quickly to any inquiries.

My purchase had some bumps and hiccups along the way (due to issues on the seller's side), some of which were very complex and complicated. Katherine was familiar with each and every challenge and the best way to respond or counter to the seller.

I am so grateful for Katherine and her time and expertise.

Bought a home in 2010.

From the moment we met Katherine, we felt completely at ease and in good hands. At the time, we lived out of state and were visiting NC interested in buying a property for future retirement. Katherine was warm, welcoming, and easy to talk to. She explained the NC real estate process to us, and completed all the necessary paperwork and negotiations to complete the sale in an expeditious timeframe. She was very knowledgeable helping us through the steps to closing. Katherine has been a continuing resource for us, answering any questions we have about the local area, as we have recently moved in. Knowing we were coming from out of state, she even went the extra mile to make the place move-in ready for our arrival! We cannot say enough positive things about how Katherine handled the entire process. Her professionalism is commendable, and her easy-to-know personality is a bonus.
