Ratings & Reviews

Kathryn Grabowy of Resources Real Estate is the quintessential real estate broker. I had been researching options for my move from NYC to NJ and had seen over 70 properties over 3 months, with the same reaction. My intention was to rent in an area in the hopes of eventually putting down roots. Most of what I viewed was standard fare, poorly designed or lacked space to breathe. Having been an 'entranced' visitor to the Navesink River Area, and wanting to live near water to enjoy my newfound pastime of kayaking, I began a search on the internet. A midnight find yielded a ' house on an estate' and I contacted the broker, Kathryn, immediately, only to find that the property was snatched up by morning. Upon our first meeting, Kathryn had done extensive research for my options in all the surrounding areas. She toured me through many properties, sharing her wealth of knowledge of the history of the region , the vibes each area had and cruised by the highlights everywhere we went. As a professional interior / architectural designer I thrive to share my knowledge with my clients so they can fully appreciate the process of creating a beautiful functional interior in the process of developing an ongoing relationship. Kathryn has the same enthusiasm in her field and gave much more of her time than expected for a 'mere rental'. I was greatly appreciative and continued to look on my own, hopeful that something 'magical' would turn up within my deadline. I finally found a condo in Englewood , NJ very close to my move date. I was completely packed, moving company engaged and was waiting on edge for final arrangements by the broker... which did not materialize at the last minute . I was, at that moment, on a much-needed day trip to the Jersey Shore area to visit a friend when Kathryn called out of the blue and told me that the 'estate house' , never seen, was available again and ' how long would it take me to come down'? I told her I was around the corner..and the rest is history. I leapt at the opportunity to move to the exquisite area that she so thoughtfully and gracefully introduced me to. She has continued to be a generous wellspring of resources (from doctors to organizations to join) and has called just to 'check in' on my progress in finding my way in a new area. I have not hesitated to refer her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Little Silver, NJ.

Kathy is very knowledgeable and knows the market. I would ]recommend Kathy always. Kathy took us through the process effortlessly. She listens and then zeros in and shows homes that are within your price range. She goes to bat for you and works for you in our case till the closing.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Red Bank, NJ.

I cannot express in this short space how extremely satisfied I am with Kathy. I found her through Zillow on a random search. She was the one who answered her phone, and called back within minutes. Kathy took on the pre-foreclosure short-sale of my brother's estate. She became a working partner, and together with her team saw this sale to a timely close. There were many obstacles that presented, and she took on the role of the point-person for all communications between lawyers, realtors, mortgage companies, and title companies. She is diligent, straight-forward, and fully knowledgeable in her field. I recommend Kathy with great confidence.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Long Branch, NJ.

Very easy to talk to, able to change gears fast and adjust to my ever changing needs and desires. She kept working hard and exploring all the listings that might interest me. She arranged the showings around my busy schedule, making sure that I got everything I needed from each showing, even going back to a listing when necessary. Due to her diligent work I was able to get a beautiful beachside apartment in Long Branch, despite my originally looking only in Red Bank. She could read me better than I could!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Little Silver, NJ.

It was such a pleasure working with Kathy. My husband and I grew up in the area so we knew the towns we wanted to look in. Kathy gave us excellent advice when it came to narrowing it down to the best town for us as a family, but also from an investment standpoint. She was very responsive from day 1 all the way to our closing day. I would highly reccommend Kathy to anyone looking for a home in Monmouth County. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and the agent you want representing you during the home buying process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Rumson, NJ.

Kathy went above and beyond for us as first time home buyers in Rumson. Kathy listened to what we wanted, helped us to find it, and helped us to get it in a very competitive market. She is remarkably responsive, and was available to us around the clock.

It's not just that Kathy knows the home buying process inside and out -- although that is a big part of it -- but also that she was able to comprehensively introduce us to the area and its residents (some of whom are now our new neighbors) based on her tremendous knowledge and local network.

Kathy also has an extensive roster of outstanding professionals and tradespeople who were able to assist at every step of the process. When a last minute issue with home repairs threatened to unravel our closing, Kathy saved the day and was able to get a local carpenter to the property within an hour, who looked at the problem and gave us enough information to convince the seller to give us an additional credit to cover the needed repairs.

Since we have moved in, Kathy has been a reliable resource for advice on everything from home repair to the best local businesses and all that the area has to offer.

If you want an agent who will look out for you from the first point of contact through closing and beyond, we highly recommend Kathy Grabowy.

Showed home in 2013 in Little Silver Point, Little Silver, NJ 07739.

We needed an expert analysis of the market for rebuilding and selling our home, and Kathy was amazing! Her work was thorough, very knowledgeable, and she communicated about sensitive issues thoughtfully and gracefully. Kathy had our best interests at heart and educated us in the process...we got insights from her that we didn't get elsewhere. I would recommend her highly without hesitation.

Bought a home in 2013.

We are very grateful to have had Kathy as our agent while we searched for our first home. She took the time to get to know us and consistently made sure to guide us in the right direction as we searched through homes in the Red Bank area. Kathy was honest with us upon every house we visited and always brought to our attention key aspects of a home that we probably wouldn't have thought of otherwise. She made sure not to waste our time with any homes that were completely out of our price range/desires and did a great job managing our expectations after evaluating our wish list. We appreciated the time and effort she put in to making sure we were 100% confident in our decision to purchase our current home. We even enjoyed her company! She took us on many tours of the area and suggested some great restaurants in town that have become some of our favorite spots. All in all, an experience that could have been terrible was one of the most exciting times in our lives and we are very appreciative of Kathy's help!
