Kate was wonderful to work with and helped me with my recent purchase. She is very detailed and data driven to help with research and what to expect. Her follow through was great.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Manzanita, OR.
Kate was simply awesome to work with. When initially looking at properties, she was helpful, knowledgeable of the local area, very effective at helping me clarify my personal needs and preferences, very willing to work on my schedule, and managed just the right balance between helping me notice the strengths and weaknesses of each property while making ample space for me to come to my own opinions.

At the negotiation stage, she gave me helpful recommendations when I asked for them, worked effectively with the broker representing the other party, and was proactive and timely as we moved through the steps to close the sale.

Throughout, she maintained effective communication, was available for questions "big and small," and an absolute delight to work with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Cannon Beach, OR.
We walked into the Windermere office and met Kate since she had the duty that weekend. We gave her some background on what we were looking for and she set up a tour for the next day. Kate showed us a range of homes so that we got a good feel for what was available at different price points. Once we decided to make an offer, Kate helped us through each step of the process. It was a pleasure working with Kate - she made it very easy and made sure we were comfortable with each decision.

Bought a home in 2013.
Kate did a terrific job in helping us to find a house and navigating through the purchase process. She was thoughtful, responsive, thorough, caring and a pleasure to work with. She knows her business, knows the market, and knows how to manage people and circumstances with good judgment and practicality.

Bought a home in 2013.
Kate did a fabulous job- exceeded our expectations for a realtor and we fully recommend her services and professionalism! We first met Kate a few years ago and she showed us beach houses at that time and kept in touch with us until we found the right purchase for us She made this purchase happen for us.

Sold a home in 2011.
Kate was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was not only very knowledgeable about the market and neighborhood, but also gave us great advice about how best to market our house and negotiate with the sellers. When issues came up during the negotiations, she always had ideas about how to deal with them before even bringing them to the table -- making our experience almost effortless. We really appreciate Kate's skills!

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $1.675M in Back Bay, Boston, MA.
Kate just sold our Cannon Beach, Oregon house in a depressed economy with over 70+ other properties on the market. She was very engaging, has great taste herself and really was a lovely bright spot in an otherwise emotionally difficult move. Highly recommended without any reservations.

Bought a home in 2011.
Kate Merrell recently helped us find and purchase a lot in Cannon Beach. I can't speak highly enough of her expertise, attention, and follow through. She was with us every step of the way, from our initial questions to the signing of the final papers. Yes, in fact, she even came to the signing and sat with us to explain every detail. She is thorough, communicative, patient (very patient), helpful, and kind. My husband and I highly recommend her!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Manzanita, OR.
Kate went above and beyond in so many ways to help us in the finding and purchasing of our house. Here are a few highlights.

--- Kate took time away from her anniversary to show us the house for a 2nd time. We had gotten cold feet, and seeing this house again made us fall in love with it all over again.

--- Kate helped immensely with dealing with FEMA to get the best rate we could on Flood Insurance. Normally, that's the job of your insurance agent.

--- Kate got us EVERYTHING we asked for from the seller

Beyond those few highlights, her performance in all the duties normally required of an agent was excellent, most notably her wonderful and responsive communication.

I've dealt with many realtors over the years and have never been more satisfied.

AAA++++++

Bought a home in 2011.
Kate is courteous, knowledgeable, and tenacious in negotiations on behalf of her clients.

We were looking for an ocean-area home to enjoy and perhaps use as a vacation rental, and Kate was especially helpful with suggestions about local codes as well as letting us know the ins and outs of different neighborhoods.

Her cool-head was especially useful in negotiating vigorously on our behalf, this in spite of a low-selling price that assured her commission would be paltry--helping us to gain items like installation of an electric panel, mold-abatement paid for by the sellers, etc.

She worked behind the scenes to assure the sale went through--this helped us additionally, as we were buying from a distance, and Kate attended inspections, etc. that we could not be present at.

All this done graciously, even when we as nervous buyers were bombarding her with relevant and irrelevant questions and emails and phone calls.

At the end of a difficult and time-intensive sale, she even took out the trash and supplied toilet paper before we took possession!

We've worked with other agents in the area and had reasonable expectations for a buyer-agent's level of service. Kate Merrell = "above and beyond expectations" at every step. We can't say enough good things! CALL HER! You'll be glad you did...
