Kathy listed and sold my mom's house within 3 months. She is awesome! and, we think she'll be awesome for anyone that needs her services! Mom was on a deadline to sell and get into assisted living and Kathy made that possible by assessing her needs and being real with her about the property and what she could expect.
We've sold not one but two houses with Kathy and couldn't be happier! She truly loves her job, gives expert, honest, realistic advice, and has an outstanding sales record! I highly recommend Kathy Brothers to anyone looking to sell their home quickly and easily!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Aurora, IL.
Kathy and her wonderful team are the perfect choice when you need to sell or buy a home. They are hardworking and dedicated but most importantly they are trustworthy and honest. Kathy takes the time to understand your personal situation and works with her clients' best interest in mind. The Kathy Brothers team is more interested in helping you attain your goal than going for the "house sale." Thanks to Kathy's efforts and her expert client negotiation skills, we sold our house quickly.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Aurora, IL.
Using Kathy Brothers to list our home was the best decision we could've made. She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Kathy made herself completely available to us at all times and her follow up is phenomenal. I have and will continue to refer Kathy to our friends and family for all of their real estate needs.
My pregnant wife and I were eager to find a new home in the Aurora area.
We had an idea of what we were looking for, but we were first-time homebuyers, and needed lots of information and good advice. Kathy has plenty of both of those.
She persistently worked through homes that fit what we were looking for until we found the home we loved. She was patient with us, and helped us observe both potential problems and perks of each house we toured.
After finding "our home" she walked us through the homebuying process, and directed us to reputable property inspectors, mortgage lenders, and attorneys from whom we then chose. She walked us through the process, and we've been happily living in our home with our beautiful little girl.
We strongly recommend Kathy as a Real Estate Professional to anyone in need of a realtor!
We really appreciate your hard work and expertise, Kathy!
Kathy Brothers was an excellent representative on our behalf. She explained a complicated market, answering every question we had. She advised regarding the optimum time and manner in which to list our house. She marketed it with professionalism in photography and description which I have not always seen in our subsequent house search in another state. We fortunately followed her advice to our lasting benefit.
During our listing, we were contacted to show our house at a time we could not due to my husband's night work hours and daytime sleeping needs. The interested party canceled the visit entirely. Kathy contacted that person's Realtor and explained the circumstances. She further praised our house as beautiful and stated it worth a look. That person ended up buying our house. I feel we would have missed a sale without her persistence and expertise.
Near closing we had an emergency repair. We were out of communication due to traveling but had left our daughter as contact in our stead. Kathy took the initiative to secure repair services along with the help of my daughter and her husband. We could have lost the sale or have had added expenses without her quick support.
You could not do better than to secure Kathy Brothers' services whether buying or selling. She is indeed a cordial professional who knows her field.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in North Aurora, IL.
We’re using Kathy for both the sale of our existing home, as well as the purchase of our new home. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with, and her services are top notch. Kathy is not wanting for experience and professionalism in any aspect of real estate from our prospective. From the start, she has shown a willingness to go the extra mile and do what it takes to not only complete the sale/purchase, but also to make sure it’s done right and with an element of fun. We can’t say enough how great she has been to work with. There’s a lot that goes into selling and buying a home, and she has been there to assist with every aspect of it, regardless of whether or not she’s required to. Use her with confidence.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in North Aurora, IL.
A talented and graceful professional with expert real estate skills. Kathy Brothers instills confidence and gets the job done. We could not believe how quickly our house sold. Given the state of the real estate market, I was expecting some glitches to occur at some point, but they never did. We had the smoothest transaction imaginable. I trust and respect Kathy Brothers and would recommend her unreservedly. She is a real blessing to work with, and she displayed competence, integrity and helpfulness throughout the process. A real jewel of a person and hands-down the best realtor you could hope to know.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Montgomery, IL.
Kathy is so awesome, we recommend anyone looking to purchase a home work with her. My wife and I were first-time homebuyers and Kathy practically walked us through the entire process. We were previously living in Evanston, IL and she made herself available every weekend (even during her family time) to show us houses. She was very patient and knowledgeable about purchasing a home using a VA loan. She was just magnificent with our small children whom came along in the home buying process.
A quick story I would like to share is that we initially went with one lender and that lender turned us down for our pre-approval. I called Kathy about what happened and she recommended us to call a mortgage company she works with. Her team of people made this process very smooth and seamless. She pointed us to a trustworthy and knowledgeable attorney, appraiser, loan officer, etc.
It was great working with Kathy; she is very personable, caring, and fun-loving. She puts God first in her work!
