 Your housing needs deserve the care of a specialist and when performance counts, call on Kathy L. Holstein with Century 21 The Professional Group. Kathy has been a real estate agent since January 1, 2006, but has been living and working in Storm Lake for over 40 years. She attended Buena Vista University, majoring in secondary education and mathematics. So why did Kathy become a real estate agent? We asked her this and she replied, "After teaching English as a Second Language for years, I was ready to make a change. I wanted to pursue a career that was both challenging and allowed me the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills to help people and being a realtor was a perfect fit." Kathy Holstein has received the C21 Sales Achievement Award in 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007 for production, and has been awarded the CRS, GRI and ABR designations.  She also has a Certified Home Marketing Specialist designation.

"My only purpose is to deliver successful results" says Kathy. She has knowledge of the market trends, is able to utilize technology well and listens and understands the needs of each individual client. She specializes in relocations, first time home buyers, home re-sales, new construction, as well as lakefront homes and condos. Kathy tells us that her favorite part of being a real estate agent is not the commission check, but rather "helping each client fulfill their real estate needs, for buyers finding their ideal home, for sellers, getting their ideal asking price in the shortest amount of time." Kathy gives the first-time home buyer this piece of advice, "Go to a local lender and discuss all the options, educate themselves in the lending and home buying process and get prequalified before beginning their search for the ideal home."

Clients come first in Kathy's eyes. As she says, "I am totally committed to providing outstanding service to my clients in a manner that demonstrates personal integrity and professionalism, always placing my clients need in a position of top authority." Kathy works hard to take care of all the details and paperwork for clients. She wishes to make the whole process and experience as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Kathy believes that the most challenging aspect of being a real estate agent is having the understanding of fair market values of homes in the area and helping clients either price their homes correctly for selling or make a good offer when buying.

Kathy Holstein has called the Storm Lake area home for over 40 years.  She and her husband have three grown daughters and six grandchildren. She calls this beautiful area home because it is a safe place to raise a family, offers award winning schools, has a strong economy and housing market and is home to some of the friendliest Midwestern people you will ever find. To begin the search for your dream home, don't hesitate to contact Kathy Holstein today!

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Storm Lake, IA.
      Kathy understood our needs and worked with us to find just the right home. She has been very responsive to our questions and concerns, has made herself available to us on short notice and has made purchasing a home extremely hassle free.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Holstein, IA.
      Kathy was always available to answer any questions we had in buying our first home. She is from the area and worked well with the listing agent as well as the bank, home inspector and appraiser.

      If you want an agent dedicated to you as a buyer, I would highly recommend Kathy. I'm sure the same can be said if you were selling.

      We put in an offer and closed on our house in less than a month. We also closed on the date we picked when we put our offer in. I would attribute the ease and smoothness of the whole process in part to Kathy's work. We couldn't have had a better experience in purchasing our first home.
