I am an agent working for the quality company of Kuper Sotheby's International Realty. I am also an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist. My background prior to being a Realtor, was in education. I retired from Alamo Heights Junior School working as a school counselor. I continue to hold my license as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)..

My husband and I also own approximately 60+ rental properties. So that buying and selling of properties is something I personally have had quite a bit of experience.  It has helped me to understand both the emotional and business side of buying and selling a home.

I believe my background is the reason I enjoy real estate so much due to the fact that I can continue making and enjoying relationships with people. My goal is not merely to sell or find a home for a client, but to build new and lasting relationships. I will listen to you and what it is you are wanting and needing from the experience.

Ratings & Reviews

Kathy sold our family home in Forest Oak subdivision and helped us purchase our downsized garden home in Mission Ridge neighborhood. Kathy is an exemplary realtor. She made every effort to look for appropriate properties across North Central San Antonio (our area of choice). I was impressed with her knowledge of the market. She often previewed a property and was able to indicate for what amount the property would actually sell. She was able to keep our double transaction "on track" regardless of the obstacles placed in the way. Kathy is one of those delightful people who make things seem easy & light and airy regardless of the hard work that she has done behind the scenes. She is totally knowledgeable on the entire process involved including many laws and regulations that I had never heard of before. No matter how many" totally impossible" properties I wanted to look at Kathy was ready to accompany me, my daughter and her friends and/or my husband without complaint. She was always able to accommodate my requests within 24 hours, usually the same day. Everyone (including friends) felt free to call Kathy and offer suggestions for what we needed. She handled all of this with grace and humor. When it came down to "brass tacks" Kathy displayed excellent negotiation skills, making suggestions and recommendations. Many items were replaced, changed or repaired to meet our needs. I would never have thought to ask for many of these items such as: a different place for return air grills to make them easier to access.<br/><br/>I could not have been happier with all of the service and little extras that we received from Kathy. She has built a great team (mortgage company & title company,etc.) to enable her to do an excellent job. I would certainly recommend Kathy as an experienced, knowledgeable, thorough realtor. Thanks to Kathy for working with "all of us" to find the best home for my husband and me. We could not be happier with our situation. Viki Hatcher
