We first met Kathy during an open house in 2011. The manner in which she handled the open house was very impressive and professional. We toured other open houses hosted by other agents during the early phase of our home search and none compared to the quality and professionalism offered by Kathy. Based on this encounter we decided to enlist Kathy as our agent in the search for our home. As a family who recently relocated to MN for employment it was good to have Kathy's knowledge of the area real estate and schools. She is very connected in the community and had several contacts which we utilized. She was very responsive to all of our calls and emails and always returned messages very quickly. Her knowledge of the mortgage and closing process was also very impressive. She knew more than the local bank mortgage officer and spoke up on our behalf to keep the closing on schedule. I would recommend Kathy to first time home-buyers or repeat home buyers for her expertise, professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness. She is a great buyer's agent/advocate. If the time comes that we outgrow our current house we will certainly use Kathy to sell our current house and find a new house.

In short, I would never buy another piece of Minnesota real estate without Ms. Borys' assistance. She has helped my husband and me buy and sell four homes in the last 10 years and the results of each purchase and sale have exceeded our expectations. Kathy is very professional in her approach, but is a warm and sympathetic partner in navigating the real estate process, as well. Her knowledge of the Twin Cities real estate market is enormous. Her ability to lead us through the process of finding, and buying and/or selling one of the most important elements of our lives was so appreciated. Kathy stays the course of difficult transactions and seems to make them magically become simple and complete.
If you're buying or selling real estate in the Twin Cities, choosing Kathy Borys to help you with the process would be a smart financial and emotional decision. She's a wonderful Twin Cities resource.
We have used Kathy both as an agent to sell and buy a house. She has deep knowledge of the community, a clear marketing vision and a giant Rolodex of people who can help support the staging of your house -- from house-cleaners to handy-men to photographers. She's judicious with her opinions, yet free with her advice; that's a tough-to-find but very valuable combination
Kathy's a true partner in the process, and keeps her clients continually and accurately informed. When there's a bump in the road -- and having bought and sold a half-dozen houses, we've learned there's always some kind of bump in the road -- Kathy doesn't panic. She just keeps on working. I recommend her highly and without reservation.

We worked with Kathy to sell one house and buy another. Kathy is hard-working, action-oriented, clear and successful. When we had roadblocks with part of a transaction, she was tireless until she resolved the roadblock. When you hire an agent, you are also hiring someone to represent you in a business transaction, and her professionalism and great reputation in the commmunity are a real asset.
Kathy was GREAT to work with in buying and selling our home. She was personable, professional, responsive and knowledgeable...not to mention patient! All qualities that are essential in such an important decision.
We sold our home with Kathy very quickly (thanks in part to some great marketing, professional photos and good negotiations) but it took much longer to find the right home for our family due to a low volume of homes on the market. During this time she was patient, never encouraged us to settle and remained positive that we'd find our dream home-- she was right! We did!
We would highly recommend Kathy Borys, and already have to friends and family.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Waite Park, Minneapolis, MN.
Kathy went above and beyond to make us understand every step of the process in purchasing our first home. She was so knowledgeable on not only where the market is but all the local areas we looked at. You can truly tell she loves what she does and I would recommend her a thousand times over. We plan to use her for all our buying
and selling needs.
Sold a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $150K in Saint Paul, MN.
Kathy Borys and her team are able to provide a ?One Stop Shop? for selling and buying a home. Kathy?s knowledge of the market and honest approach toward listing a house were definite strong points, since getting the house priced right to sell initially is essential during these economic times. Kathy and her team were also very helpful in staging and we thought that the MLS Listing truly captured and displayed our house remarkably. We were very pleased with their dedication to getting our house sold and keeping us continually informed on any feedback from open houses as well as any showings. In fact, we can?t recall having to ask for an update or feedback even once. In the end, we received a great offer and we were ecstatic.
During the buying process they were very enduring, as we did view a large number of houses. Ultimately, we determined that building a custom house was the sure way to get the home we wanted. When it came to building, Kathy was able to not only provide us with builder recommendations, but also provide first hand knowledge of their work and even show us recently built homes. The lot we choose to negotiate on was priced much higher than current market value and Kathy did a great job in getting the lot negotiated down to a reasonable market price.
In closing, we just wanted to say that we received a very professional and high level of quality service and dedication during both the selling and building process.
