It's really about you!

Single, married, married with children, blended families – no two families are alike.  I understand that and I am committed to helping you make one of the most important purchases of your life - your home.  My dedication goes beyond that – I want to build a relationship with you and your family to become your REALTOR in every Real Estate transaction you, your family and your friends make.  Loyalty, dedication, honesty and hard work are what I promise to you and everyone that you refer to me.

About me - 

I joined CENTURY 21 Award with more than 30 years experience in the residential design and construction industry. After helping to build a successful construction company where I also served as vice president, I obtained my California State Contractors license.  I also received a Bachelor of Architecture and an MBA from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California.  I have partnered with numerous architects, engineers and contractors and am passionate about the design and function of buildings.  I am especially proud to have been a part of the first commercial straw bale structure in California.  I have received several design awards for my projects.
 
I was the first in my family to attend college and receive a degree.  I believe that my dedication to hard work and determination to succeed has brought me to this juncture. 
 
I am an active associate member of the American Institute of Architects.  I have also volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and various local and international charities.  I most recently completed drawings for an orphanage in Malawi, Africa.  Outside of professional interests, I enjoy reading, hiking, fishing, camping and especially spending time with family.

Ratings & Reviews

If you are looking for an honest, reliable, and friendly realtor who will go above and beyond the call of duty then Kathy would be a great choice. She is low pressure buying agent and a savvy selling agent. It took me 3 months to find the right place on my first search and her attitude and demeanor never changed. She wanted to make sure that I was happy with my decision and that I got a fair price. I've bought and sold a place since that first interaction and it was just as great an experience as the first time.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Oceanside, CA.

Kathy spent the last 10 months or so working with us in finding the right home. We put an offer on a short-sale, but didn't know for a long time if it would go through, so she continued working with us and showing us homes. When the short-sale finally happened, Kathy was instrumental in resolving some real problems with the seller.

Kathy is always patient and professional and a great advocate!

Thank you Michael and Jean, kudos to you for hanging in there with me! You now have a great place to share with friends and family and I am sure there will be lots of great memories made there. Talk to you soon.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Carlsbad, CA.

Kathy skillfully assisted in finding homes that met my very specific criteria, despite a very limited supply during my search. She narrowed the search down and provided updates over a couple of months. We visited the best prospects and she listened to my likes and dislikes for each property. When a property was finally selected, she provided comparables to allow me to make a decision on what to offer. The deal was closed.  More Less
