Ratings & Reviews

I first met Kate 7 years ago, while going through a divorce and looking for a new home for my then 6 year old daughter and I to reside. I was nervous, as I had never purchased a home on my own, and needed to find someone who would walk me through the process step by step. I was very specific about what I wanted and was probably one of those "problem clients" that you hear about who are constantly changing their minds about what they want and need. After an incredible amount of looking, we found the perfect house! Kate's legal experience was incredibly helpful through this process as well being that there issues involving money that were tied to my divorce that she was able to help me understand and allowed me to also understand how certain aspects of that situation applied to the house buying process. Her assistance was invaluable!<br/><br/>Fast forward 7 years... Kate sold my home as well as my fiances home while also looking for a new home for us to purchase for our newly blended family. In addition to being a great advocate to us, she also helped us through some issues with the builder of our new home that were very tricky, while maintaining the utmost professionalism! <br/><br/>The best thing about working with Kate is that not only is she incredibly knowledgeable of the entire Metro Detroit area real estate market and connected to others within the market, but she is also a joy to work with! Kate is quick, flexible, smart, and on top of it, fun to be around! <br/><br/>I would highly suggest her to anyone who is looking for someone to help them through the house hunting or selling process. She's your gal!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Rochester Hills, MI.

I found Kate to be very responsive and almost always available, by phone , email , or text to answer questions not only about my home purchase questions but also about the new area we were moving. She is very careful to make sure that the home you are buying will fit you and your family. I can give no higher compliment than to say that I would seek her help and guidance to sell our home should we decide to move again in the future.

Kate Hayman is second to none. She has a very keen understanding of marketing and executes a very professional plan to take a home from listing to sold. I would highly recommend Kate to prospective sellers and buyers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Rochester Hills, MI.

We were new to the Detroit area and Kate helped us make good choice in home location . She was extremely helpful in negotiations and to get the house we wanted at a fair price. Kate understood our needs/wants quickly. We were able to connect on a personal level making it a very pleasurable experience. This was my 4th relocation an this was the easiest so far thanks to Kate.

Bought a home in 2012 in Royal Oak, Royal Oak, MI 48073.

I worked with Kate to buy my first home in Royal Oak in August 2012. She was wonderful to work with, knowledgeable, and helped us find our dream home in no time at all. We purchased a foreclosure and Kate worked directly with the bank to ensure we got the best deal. I would recommend Kate to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Metro Detroit area.

Sold a home in 2013.

I would recommend Kate to anyone. When I was looking to hire an agent, I sent out requests to 4 or 5 realtors and heard back from Kate within 24 hours. The rest of the experience was similar. She met me shortly after and had a clear game-plan that fit perfectly with my goals. She made a few suggestions on things I could easily do to get the house sold quickly and those proved to be worth it. Kate was very nice and sweet, however was firm when things needed to get done. She was always prompt in following up on things and I never had to wait very long for a reply to calls or emails. You will not regret choosing Kate Hayman as your realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Royal Oak, MI.

I am so happy my fiance and I were able to work with Kate Hayman when we bought our house last fall. She is personable, has an incredible amount of knowledge about property values, school districts, and the entire home buying process. We were first time buyers, and Kate walked us through the process from start to finish- and she knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. She takes time to get to know her clients so she knew our taste, our preferences, and our values when she helped us search for and find our perfect starter home. Also, nobody negotiates like Kate! She will work to negotiate the right price, and she is very realistic and savvy. I highly recommend Kate Hayman if you are looking for a real estate professional who can get the job done! We plan to contact her again as soon as we are ready to sell our house!

Bought a home in 2013.

We thought Kate did a ton of great work for us. She was always responsive. A friendly yet tough and fair negotiator. She really knows the business and was patient with us as we figured out our needs. Kate is also just a very friendly and enjoyable person to work with. We'd definitely recommend to friends and family.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Huntington Woods, MI.

In representing my recent home sale, Kate was nothing short of amazing. The house sold in under two weeks and for more than I was expecting. Throughout the process, she was professional and responsive. I was completely satisfied with her representation and will definitely be a repeat customer.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Troy, MI.

Kate was recommended by a friend, who successfully landed on a deal in a competitive short sale in a very desirable neighborhood even she was not the highest bidder. She recommended Kate for her knowledge, strategic thinking, and responsiveness. Kate proved the she deserved every bit of the recommendations. She knew what exactly we were looking for and helped us buy a great home after only seeing three homes. Kate had our best interests in mind, while maintained the "big picture" even when we had the tendency to be sidetracked by minor issues. Her knowledge in law also came handy.
