Kat is friendly and easy to be with and talk to. She's always responsive and attentive. She really knows everything about Lake Arrowhead and made the hunting fun. She helped us get the house we really wanted even through a difficult escrow.

Bought a home in 2013 in Crest Park, Lake Arrowhead, CA 92352.

We loved working with Kat. We immediately felt comfortable with her. She is friendly, honest, helpful, knowledgeable, and responds quickly to phone calls or emails. Kat helped us find the perfect home and negotiated a great price for our family. I would highly recommend her to any home buyer.

Bought a home in 2013 in Crest Park, Lake Arrowhead, CA 92352.

We chose Kathy based on the great reviews she received on Zillow. We were not disappointed! From the moment we contacted her, Kathy was very responsive to our needs without being pushy. We live more than an hour away from Lake Arrowhead, so searching for a vacation home required some coordination and flexibility. Kathy made her schedule work with ours and always came prepared with the information we needed to maximize our house hunting in the most efficient manner. She has a great sense of humor, so our expeditions with Kathy were relaxed and fun! She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, so we were able to make well-informed decisions. During the negotiation and closing processes, Kathy stayed completely on top of things, so we were able to close as scheduled despite some hiccups from our bank. Kathy has continued to provide us with information about local services, so that we have everything we need - even after closing!! We highly recommend Kathy De Long if you are looking for an honest, efficient and knowledgeable real estate agent in the Lake Arrowhead area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Lake Arrowhead, CA.

Purchased a "short sale" home; there's nothing short, or easy, about this process! Kat maintained a positive and professional attitude as she walked us through the transaction. Her knowledge of the local real estate is a real asset. There's nothing more daunting than purchasing property in an unfamiliar area. She's also extremely responsive as we usually received responses to questions within minutes.

Overall, great customer service!

Thank you Tim and Julie! I know it was a long haul, but you were troopers for hanging in here; short sales can make the best of us say Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. Thanks, again, for the kind words. Welcome to Lake Arrowhead!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Lake Arrowhead, CA.

As a licensed agent in another state, I'm probably overly critical of other agents' performances. But Kathy truly exceed my expectations, and my partner and I could not be any more satisfied with her work in representing us. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Lake Arrowhead community! From the first phone call to after closing, she was always there for us, fast to respond to questions and concerns, and immediately forwarding us new listings as they hit the market. We were searching for a mountain home in the middle of Winter, but nothing (including snowed in access roads) could deter Kathy from getting us in to see a house! She is fearless! : ) She went up and beyond what a typical agent would do, and we would recommend her without any hesitations. We loved working with Kathy, and we consider her now a lifelong friend!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Crestline, CA.

My wife and I just recieved the keys to our new cabin brought about by our remarkable and always professional Real Estate Agent Kathy Delong. Right from the beginning Kat impressed us with her outstanding knowledge of market conditions, her meticulous detail in communication and her invaluable commitment to provide the very best in real estate services. Her readiness to show homes around our schedule impressed us so much, never one to compromise her first-rate efficency in the always competitive market to find that "right place". So personable and friendly, we felt so comfortable talking with her on what ever direction we felt we needed to go. I would recomend Kat not only to those who expect the highest in superior service but also to those "first timers" who want a "real person" who speaks their language. I could go on and on but would like to summarize this review in one last statement "When you hire Kat Delong as your Real Estate Professional, you are simply securing the very best in the business".

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Lk Arrowhead, CA.

Kat is a seasoned Realtor who has lived in the area for years and knows every little detail about every home she has ever walked through. She is honest, reliable and responsive. Buying a home in an area you do not live in can make for a big challenge. But it wasn't for us as we were well represented by Kat. She attended every appointment either with us or for us. She met with the appraiser, a home inspector, the electrician, and all general contractor appointments even after closing escrow. She did all of this without hesitation when asked. On top of her great work ethic she spent a tremendous amount of time with us, including the marathon Saturday we spent looking at 30+ homes with her. You won't find a better realtor on the mountain or quite possibly anywhere else. There is a reason she has 37 FIVE ***** stars on her Zillow review...We learned why she had these rave reviews firsthand on the first meeting with her. I would highly recommend Kat to anyone interested in buying mountain property. And happy to become her 38th FIVE star review!

Sold a home in 2013 in Crest Park, Lake Arrowhead, CA 92352.

Kathy is very professional and has the unique ability of fulfilling her obligations as a realtor but goes above and beyond to help her client. What a pleasure to have a realtor who is there for her client at all times. I will definitely refer Kathy to anyone looking for a realtor and Kathy will be the first person I will contact should I need a realtor in the future. Thank you Kathy for making this purchase of my home such a smooth process.

Showed home in 2012 in Crest Park, Lake Arrowhead, CA 92352.

Kat is a long time resident of Lake Arrowhead and knows the area well. She was able to steer us away from areas she knew we would not be interested in after talking to us for a couple minutes. We talked to another realtor in Big Bear and was told we were categorized as a "C" client and would only show us 3 homes. Can you believe that! Another realtor gave us a map and addresses, told us to go look at the homes she marked and call her if we wanted to look at one of the homes.

Kat is everything you would want in a Realtor! She does not rush you and there is no high pressure. We talked to another Realtor in Big Bear and was told we were categorized as a "C" client and would only show us 3 homes. Can you believe that! Kat spent the entire day with us and showed us homes that meet all of our requirements. She was helpful in negotiating an offer and even though the offer wasn't accepted we moved right along. I would highly recommend Kat as she does not waste your time looking at homes you would never be interested in. I can email her and she always responds quickly. We are still working with her to find our dream vacation home.
