Sold a home in 2014.
Kathy definitely earned her five stars on this one. She handled two transactions for us, both of which closed on the same day, with skill and determination. She is intelligent, industrious and energetic. She is, unreservedly, highly recommended.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Poway, CA.
Attention to detail, suggestions to improve saleability, knowledge of problems to watch for and prevent, patience and courtesy in managing client stress, friendliness, understanding, and quick response to concerns and needs, facilitating preparation and repairs of the house, access to resources to accomplish work needed, other resources all were excellent. It was a real pleasure to work with Kathy. From listing to sale was completed in a month during the off season. Many thanks again, Kathy, for the wonderful help and an excellent experience.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Black Mountain Ranch, San Diego, CA.
We both purchased a new house and sold our old condo with Kathy. She was absolutely amazing through both of these processes. The house we purchased was a very long short sale where we ended up getting the house at much below what it was valued at, and we got top dollar for our condo. I would absolutely recommend her if you are looking for a real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.
Kathy did a great job helping us to sell our house, making sure to take care of every detail throughout the process. We look forward to working with her again when we purchase our next house, and definitely recommend her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Poway, CA.
Kathy was very helpful with our purchase of a rental property in Poway. Her knowledge of the area and local values made the selection process easy. She was readily available to show us properties that met our criteria and did not waste our time with those that didn't. Kathy was also essential in getting us a post foreclosure property that wasn't even on the market. She is a pleasure to work with and a genuinely nice person.. We look forward to working with her again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $550K in Poway, CA.
Kathy is an excellent realtor who genuinely cares about her clients and is passionate about her profession. As a first time home buyer Kathy was perfect for us, she explained everything in detail and assisted us in finding our perfect home. She has gone above and beyond by helping us locate an excellent carpenter and a variety of other skilled craftsman to help us remodel our home at good prices. All of the people that know Kathy speak highly of her. Even after purchasing the home she has driven us to check out granite yards and follow up on questions I have had. I intend on recommending her to anyone looking for a home. We actually selected Kathy by using Zillow.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $800K in Torrey Highlands, San Diego, CA.
If you want a person with integrity, great constant communication throughout the process of saling/buying a home, where she is always willing to volunteer extra effort way beyond her contractual obligations with flexibility to accomodate your needs; Kathy is the person to work for your interest!

Sold a home in 2011.
During my 10 years in the mortgage business I have worked with many realtors and Kathy is by far one of the best. Kathy separates herself from other realtors in her understanding of the real estate process, her commitment to service, and her integrity in putting her client first in the transaction. She spends time with her clients asking questions in order to understand their needs and help them find the property that’s right for them. Kathy is an expert in her local area, allowing her to identify the value of a home and negotiate an aggressive price for her clients. She also takes the time to build a relationship with her clients and is committed to helping them achieve their dream of homeownership while effortlessly guiding her clients through the process. Her honest and transparent approach allows her clients to understand each step of the process and what to expect next. Kathy’s knowledge of the loan process allows her to guide her clients through the lending process and avoid the stress of delays and miscommunications. With so many people and challenges involved, it is a world of a difference to have a trusted partner like Kathy as your realtor! Her ability to coordinate all of the parties involved in the transaction has made my interactions with her seamless. Kathy is the difference that allows you to quickly purchase the home you want at the right price while keeping your sanity intact!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $525K in Poway, CA.
Kathy was good up front - she showed us a property we could afford, told us how we could afford it, and put us in touch with a couple of lenders who knew the new loans available (FHA 203K). She was successful in negotiating a deal at the lowest price that the sellers would accept. Kathy initially promised to rebate to us a portion of her commission, and when offered to sign an agreement, she deferred, stating that she would honor a verbal agreement. When we closed, she did not honor her verbal offer, amounting to about $2000. Kathy had difficulty keeping details straight, and often mistakenly passed mis-interpreted information or mis-interpreted both verbal and written instructions, particularly as we got into the nitty gritty of negotiations with a very difficult Seller's Agent. At the end of the transaction, as things were coming to a close, it became apparent (not unexpectedly; see below) that Kathy was more concerned about closing the deal in order to assure her commission, than getting the best deal for her clients. At the end, we had to get pushy and place her in a situation where she had to partially fund a bait-and-switch scenario regarding work being done by a contracting termite and abatement company (which she had recommended), and several times had to consider backing out because of messy negotiations.

Unfortunately, the parameters under which Realtors operate encourages a conflict of interest between the Realtors and their clients (whether Sellers or Buyers), and I would like to see a very different system in place; one in which the respective agents have a better knowledge of contract law (it turns out by experience my husband and I had better negotiating skills) and such that the agents get paid as a function of how well they perform.

I am of course, disappointed, that my client has posted a somewhat negative review. I worked very hard for them. I hope they are happy in their home and have great success in their life. I have a greatly different view of the end of the transaction and I urge anyone who has questions about the review to call me at 858-442-7844

Bought a home in 2011.
Great experience from start to finish. Very attentive and responsive, met sometimes more than once a day, and she always was in good spirits. Helped us even after the transaction, so that we could get the appropriate rec room keys. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for homes in the San Diego area.
