My name is Kathie Lea, and I am the team lead for The Kathie Lea Homes Team. I am a "Platinum Level" Real Estate agent with ReMax, and my team is one of the top teams in Pinellas county. My experience and background includes over 13 years of listing and selling Real Estate in the Tampa Bay area including new home construction, certified buyers and selling agent, Short Sale Certified, Relocation, Single Family and Multi-family Investment specialist and residential Property Management.

I was born and raised in Southern, California and I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia and have made the Tampa Bay area my home for over 20 years. Having grown up in a military family and having relocated my family in the past, I have a great appreciation for what it's like to move into a new home in an unfamiliar area. We understand the importance of not only finding the right home, but also the right schools, employment and neighborhoods. We use a team approach to provide the best results in buying and selling homes. I am the team lead and me and my team will work directly with you to help you buy or sell your home, and I negotiate those contracts. Here in Florida we realize that many of our neighbors have faced a declining market and now find themselves owing more than their home is worth. We have the training and resources to assist these homeowners in completing a short sale and have successfully closed over 125 short sales during the past few years and can help if you or someone you know owes more than the home is worth.

I believe in being the best and because of this I continue to take courses and certifications that will help my clients. I am proud to say that I am a Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) and I have a thorough understanding of complex issues in today's turbulent real estate industry and knowledge of foreclosure avoidance options available to homeowners. CDPEs can provide solutions, specifically short sales, for homeowners facing market hardships, I am a
 Graduate of the REALTOR® Institute, this is a nationally recognized professional real estate designation (GRI) and I am an e-PRO®, this certification was developed through a partnership of The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and the Social Media Marketing Institute (SMMI) to familiarize today's agents with the latest technology and social media tools to enhance their business and help them engage with customers and other real estate professionals. Let my teams training help you to purchase the right property at the right price or to sell your home for Top Dollar in the least amount of time.

Our goal is to provide you with the best "real estate experience" you've ever had! We conduct business with integrity, we are extremely well organized, and we know how to purchase and sell homes. We have great resources to handle your real estate transaction with excellence!  Please give us a call. Put my team's skills to work for you. In this challenging market, the right agent, resources, and technology do make a difference! I hope to hear from you soon! Thanks…..The Kathie Lea Homes Team!!

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Central Oak Park, Saint Petersburg, FL.
      From my initial encounter, I knew Kathie was the right choice to sell my home. She was absolutely professional, knowledgeable, and paid attention to detail. I was thrilled that her marketing approach leveraged technology to help my house be seen quickly and broadly. It worked too... the house sold in less than a week.

      Working through the details was a breeze, and she took care of all the little things that come up with the transfer of property, keeping me updated as we went along.

      I have no reservations about recommending her as an outstanding professional to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Tampa Bay area.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Palm Harbor, FL.
      I had a great experience with Kathie Lea in finding us our new home. She was patient and always glad to assist us in our search, regardless of our request. She was extremely helpful in finding the exact home we wanted. We relied heavily on her experience and knowledge of the area. From start to closing she was always able to offer guidance when we asked. I can hightly recommend her and thank her for her help in finding us our new home. We move in on Wednesday!  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Patrician Point, Saint Petersburg, FL.
      My husband and I are 100% likely to recommend Kathie Lea. We first met Kathy by calling her number from a sign in front of a house our daughter liked. Kathy called us back immediately and met us the same day we called. Our daughter ended up buying the house which was a short sale. Kathy expedited the process and kept us informed from beginning to end. When it was time to sell our own house, we called Kathy again. She was punctual, knowledgeable and caring. Above all, Kathy is honest, easy to work with and someone we felt very comfortable with. Kathy sold our house in record time and found us a home on a canal at a price we could afford. She helped us realize a dream of living on the water that we never thought we could do. Not only would we recommend Kathy, but we thank her very much.  MoreLess
