"Kathy is a remarkable realtor and delivers everything she promises and more! Our house got three full price or better offers at the first unofficial open house, and never even had to be listed on the RMLS. She was able to get us a better price than we expected, and led us through the entire selling process with a minimum of fuss. Her help with staging, contracting out repairs, and helping us understand all the closing documents, made this process problem-free and even fun.
The person who referred Kathy said she was very ethical, and that was important to us. At the end of the process, we realized how much our trust in her lifted the burden of all the details in selling a home and made everything much easier. She and her team were always available to answer questions and explain things, and were likable and approachable yet professional in every way.
We're thrilled to recommend her and are happy to provide our personal reference for the exceptional quality of her work."

I met with several real estate agents before hiring Kathleen MacNaughton to list my house for sale. Kathy recognized the importance I placed on my house and did not see it as simply another commission. At the same time, she is a very astute real estate broker and was honest enough to explain that a good neighborhood alone was not enough to compensate for the fact that my house had only one bedroom.
Kathleen has contacts with people in a variety of professions, including those who designed an informative and beautiful listing of my little house. She also provided names of painters, roofers, window washers, etc in the event that I chose to address minor repairs in advance of listing the house.
Kathy has knowledgeable assistants who provided help before and after the house was listed, and during the negotiating phase. I would recommend Kathleen MacNaughton as someone who has the skills to accurately analyze any situation involving buying or selling real estate; and for providing the client with the straight scoop.
There is no one better at this than Kathy. She's been at it for years, knows everyone, and has the energy to make good deals come together. She's worked with us on home sales, home purchases and condo purchases. If you want a no nonsense, practical broker - albeit one with a great sense of humor - Kathy tops the list.

Kathy has handled several transactions for me. Kathy's expertise has helped in all of them. In one case, I made a successful bid on a property even though I didn't have the highest bid. Kathy knows the area and values of the property there. She shows properties that meet my criteria instead of showing properties in which I'm not interested. I highly recommend Kathy as a realtor and as a person.

My first experience with Kathy MacNaughton was 15 years ago. The condo I lived in had been on the market with another agent for 3 months with no offers. I switched to Kathy and my condo sold within a week for my asking price.
When I decided to sell my house I contacted Kathy. She listed my house two weeks ago and again it sold within a few days for over my asking price. The reason for this is that Kathy did a thorough market analysis and priced my house to sell.
In both sales she arranged for additional time for me to find a new place.
My experience buying a house with her help is just as positive. Kathy and her staff contact me immediately when a home comes on the market that meets my criteria.
I've checked qualities above that I value in working with Kathy including her immediate responsiveness, knowledge, and negotiation skills. One of the qualities I most appreciate in Kathy is that she is very ethical. I know I can trust her recommendations in the process of selling my home.

Kathy and her staff of experienced and knowledgeable brokers and assistants were wonderful! They sold my condo in downtown Portland so we could get our first single family home! Not only were they exceptional in the selling process with their beautiful marketing and outstanding selling strategies, but they went out of their way to show us over 20 homes until we finally found the perfect one for us and our future family. They were supportive throughout every step of the way from selling to purchasing. Not only were they available whenever we needed them night or day, they supported us through every single transaction that comes with selling a property and purchasing a new home. This level of service was incredible and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future.
I've been through three transactions with Kathy over the past 6 years, and she's never failed to be anything other than pragmatic, realistic, and efficient. She has a very reassuring touch, and you're made to feel safe working with her and her quick thinking associates.
She has a great understanding of the market and process, and shows a great capacity to understand tastes needs, and background context.
Kathy is also great for advice on local issues, and the bigger picture around Portland real estate. I can recommend her without reservation.

Kathy sold my house the first day we put it on the market for the price I wanted in a trying economy. I found her knowledge before & during the process invaluable. She is an excellent communicator; I never was left wondering what might be happening next. And since the sale I have called on Kathy for advice in matters of real estate. She has always responded with quick, helpful support. I would highly recommend her to anyone, & would not hesitate to work with her again.
