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.

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.

Kathy was great, she helped me find and buy a home without wasting any time. I purchased a short sale and she helped get the property sold in one month, which for a short sale is very quick. She was able to get a good handle on the kind of home I was looking for quickly and get the house hunting done in short order. I would highly recommend her if you're ready to buy a house.

My wife and I listed our home with Kathy and I must say she is one of the most professional, friendly and compassionate real estate brokers I have worked with, and I have worked with many as an attorney. Kathy cares about her clients and does the best she possibly can to achieve the best results. She is also very accessible and will return a telephone call promptly if I do not get her on the first try. If you hire kathy you will be assured of excellent representation.
We were referred to Kathy after our previous Agent was just not working out. Kathy was very helpful in finding listings to go see, she was always very prompt to return phone calls and she even drove her own car and let us ride with her to see certain listings. I felt that she really went the extra mile for us. I will be using her again sometime next year when my husband and I have enough saved to start looking again. If you want someone reliable and knowledgeable Call Kathy.
I looked at properties with Kathy Fortenberry in the Oceanside/Carlsbad/Vista/San Marcos areas. I found her to be very professional, and extremely knowledgable in her areas and properties. In addition, she constantly kept me updated with new properties for sale online, and by phone, as well. In addition, she is a very nice person, who realizes that everyone has a different living situation, and tries to individualize her searches to fit that particular person and situation. I would enthusiastically recommend Kathy Fortenberry, to anyone looking for a home or condominium in the North San Diego Country area.

Steve Ploetz and Kathy Fortenberry are excellent Realtors! As a first-time buyer, I was looking for a high quality home in North County that would fit my modest budget. They both displayed extreme confidence while maintaining a positive attitude as they showed me home after home. As we traveled the long journey of finding the right house, I was amazed how knowledgeable they were concerning market trends, reasonable pricing and the competition from numerous other bidders. After 6 months, I finally decided on a home that was listed under aspecial Fannie May program. In the current market, MLS properties were switching from “New Listing” to “Contingent” in the same day. Kathy helped me keep my composure as I was tempted to over-bid just to close the deal. Once the offer was accepted with her suggested contingencies, Kathy followed up through daily communications between the seller, my lender and escrow to keep things moving. I’m happy to say, escrow closed on time and with the current interest rates, well within my budget. I would highly recommend Century 21 Realtors, Steve and Kathy as your partner in your own search for the home of your dreams.
