Ratings & Reviews

Katy is one agent that really makes it happen. She stands above her competition with her professionalism, attention to detail, excellent negotiation skills, immediate response time, great customer service, and overall lots of fun to be with. When I needed anything throughout the process of both buying and selling my homes she was there for me right away. I have referred her lots of business through the years she always gets it done with a smile!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $2.175M in Allied Arts, Menlo Park, CA.

Katy was an amazing realtor! She was very on point and organized when dealing with all of the actions that needed to be handled for selling our house and making sure that we got the best price possible. I so appreciate how much she cared about our family and listening to what we wanted. She knew what she was doing and she was just a wonderful woman to work with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $2.175M in Allied Arts, Menlo Park, CA.

We have recently sold our house in Menlo Park. Katy Theilke Straser was our realtor and she has been wonderful from the moment she entered the house. Kate is very knowledgeable with regard to the housing market. She helped transform the house and it looked fantastic when it came on the market. In a short period of time a lot of work had to be done. She made it all happen, was very efficient and followed up consistently in any aspect of the process. I also felt that Katy supported me emotionally during this painful process of selling a home. She always stayed positive and full of confidence. I can highly recommend Katy. She is professional, hard working, creative and personal. She makes things happen and is just a very nice person. The house was sold very quickly and above the asking price

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Redwood City, CA.

Katy has been an incredible partner in helping us buy our new home. She got to know our family, our needs, and listened to what we wanted in a home, helping us to evolve our priority list as we viewed properties. Katy was highly respectful of our opinions, budget, and preferences while being honest about her professional assessments and sharing her wealth of knowledge about the area. She went out of her way to see homes, research properties, and learn about micro-communities, helping us find a gem of a house. She makes sure she knows all the angles on a property, and has a wonderful network, including a top-notch engineer. Her ability to build relationships and her seemingly limitless energy helped us close a deal in record time. And her assistance has continued well beyond closing – she continues to provide us with resources and references through her network of colleagues and community. She’s fantastic!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $4.275M in Los Altos, CA.

As we were moving to the Bay Area from London, everything was new to us. Katy was extremely patient with us, explaining all the mechanics and quirks about buying a house in the Bay Area. She helped us think about the various towns we were considering, politely offering views but also being respectful of our preferences and doing her best to show us the right sort of houses for us. She was very empathetic, quickly figuring out what was our taste, to the point where she could accurately say to my husband on solo trips, "Your wife will/won't like this." When things came up in surveyor or other reports, she helped us get to the bottom of whether they were really issues, and she brought in others from Alain Pinel where needed. After a long education process for us and far too many home tours, Katy helped us win the right house for us, in the neighborhood and school district we wanted. She helped keep the pressure on the vendor, who was taking forever to close, and was always in our corner. And her great service did not stop at closing. She has been (and continues to be) a great resource for everything from shutter installation to landscapers. She is never shy to use the Alain Pinel network to solicit recommendations whenever she herself does not know a supplier/service provider. In short, she was absolutely terrific, and we can't recommend her highly enough!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.6M in Atherton, CA.

Katy is patient, responsive and fun. She helped us buy our first home recently and even though it took us 6 months, Katy's excitement and responsiveness never changed.

She helped us buy the right home for us at the right price and was supportive along the process. Not only that she was super responsive in helping us with some of the changes we wanted to make in the home.

We have already recommended her to our friends and I know she will help them find their homes too.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.825M in Midtown, Palo Alto, CA.

Katy did a wonderful job selling our home. It was highly challenging having our home next to a busy street. She was persistent and specific to detail. She did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend her in both buying and selling properties

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.6M in San Carlos, CA.

Katy did an outstanding job of making sure all of the details were taken care of. She was very persistent in getting us answers about properties and the buying process. In a very active market she was great at taking action and getting things on time. I highly recommend her both professionally and personally.

Bought a home in 2013 in West Menlo Park, Menlo Park, CA 94025.

If you are looking for someone to help you and your family find a place to call home, Katy Thielke Straser is the single best choice as your real estate partner. Katy is patient, dedicated and unwilling to accept anything but the perfect fit for you and your family. The best part is that once you have found your home, you will see the best of Katy's skills. Katy understands the persistence and negotiating required to win in this incredibly competitive market. Katy has lived in the area all her life, her mother was a very successful realtor and that has molded Katy into the winning partner that you will come to value as a friend throughout the process. I truly couldn't recommend a better person for you and your family in the area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $2.325M in Sharon Heights, Menlo Park, CA.

Katy was a gem of a realtor to work with. Responsive, with a great group of professionals to work with on getting our property ready for market, she made the process of preparing and selling our parents' home as easy as possible. My brother and I felt we could really trust Katy, and I would work with her again. She's got a good sense of humor and compassion as well--very important to me.
