Bought a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $775K in Warren, RI.
Working with Kate was a pleasure. She found a number of properties that fit my criteria, and after a lot of work, found the perfect property, though with many challenges. Her ability to research every obstacle and negotiate on behalf of her client is remarkable. She earned my trust through her diligence and outstanding negotiating skills. Kate also has a good heart and made the process of researching things like retaining walls, septic, wells, structural issues, and property values all the more interesting, while keeping cool and having fun. I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of selling and buying real estate!
Sold a Single Family home in 2004 in Barrington, RI.
Kate Smit understands her client's needs. She sold my 1845 antique house for the full asking price and negotiated very favorable terms with the buyer. A short time later, while at a showing, she found a beautiful water-view cottage that she knew I would love. She called me from the property and said, "Come over here right now with a check because I’m at the house for you." My trust in her knowledge of the market resulted in a purchase of the perfect home for me at the time. Kate understands people and the real estate market. I recommend her to anyone who is considering selling or buying!"
Bought a Condo home in 2009 in Blackstone, Providence, RI.
Kate Smit has represented me as a Seller's and Buyer's agent. She sold my home in a "down market" in less than 30 days at a great price and handled every detail to minimize my stress. Somehow she found a cash buyer with no strings attached. On the buying end she made sure that all of my questions were answered and I got a price and conditions which are now paying off as a super investment, in spite of difficult market conditions. Kate is a true professional who always puts her client first!
Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Attleboro, MA.
"Every time I need to do this kind of business, I will go to Kate Smit, as I put a great deal of trust in her. She listed and sold my home for a great price with excellent conditions for me, then helped me purchase a new condo, negotiating everything I asked for. She was always calm, thorough, and professional. I would recommend her to anyone."
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Somerville, MA.
I had made an appointment to view one of Kate's listings when I was in the very preliminary stages of looking for a new home to purchase. Since I was very satisfied, I asked her to become my exclusive agent. Kate was wonderful throughout the whole process. For Kate, it wasn’t at all about making a sale. It was about helping me make the right choice. I feel strongly that Kate had my interests at heart from start to finish. I was extremely satisfied with her thoroughness, professionalism and knowledge of the local market. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends and family
I researched every sales associate wtihin 20 miles. I interviewed the top 5. Kate impressed me with her willingess to be involved, knowledge of the market, and also how to stage my property at minimum cost. I knew the place needed work and I lived 250 miles away. Kate's response was, "Tell me what you want and I'll get it done." She coordinated the improvements and sourced the contractors. She always found a better deal than I did
