We worked with Katie in connection with our purchase of a cooperative unit in Milwaukee. Throughout the process, Katie was efficient, friendly, highly responsive, and very professional. The transaction required dealing not only with the seller, but also with the property manager, which she handled brilliantly. We enjoyed working with Katie very much and recommend her enthusiastically.
Buying and selling real estate is, at its base, a transaction. But, I see it as more than that. Each buyer and each seller brings to the transaction their own personal story – a reason for moving and challenges that must be overcome in that transition. Likewise, each home has a story – How did it begin its life? What changes has it undergone? What lives have been lived within its walls? How might it change and adapt in the future? As your realtor, it is my goal to learn your story… and to help connect you to the ideal setting – a home - for that story.
- take the time to listen to you about both what your goals are and why they are important
- walk you through what to expect. As a former educator, I approach real estate with the heart of a teacher;
- take care of appointments, contracts and other details with precision and care;
- communicate clearly throughout the transaction – both with you and other parties to assure a smooth transaction;
- and, address any individualized needs that might arise as we write the next chapter in your story. I look forward to learning your story.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss how a change of address might impact your next chapter.

What clients are saying...
Katie's a delight to work with. It was a great comfort to have someone so knowledgeable, patient, and fun throughout our multi-year buying & selling process. She went above and beyond on multiple occasions and never once pressured us when things weren't quite right. We couldn't be more happy with our experience.
Katie was absolutely excellent throughout the entire process. She provided an important market analysis for us so that we could set an appropriate price. Katie worked well with our long-term tenants to coordinate showings that worked for all parties. She provided insights and suggestions for us to consider while reviewing the offers received. The buyer's lender required that certain work be performed before closing. Katie provided the names and contact information for several contractors who could complete the work. She reviewed closing documents along with us to make sure they were properly completed. Katie is the consummate real estate professional whose insights were invaluable.
Katie is absolutely amazing to work with! Incredibly knowledgeable and thorough, she helped us buy and sell our home and make the process worry free. After working with her the first time, we didn't hesitate to call her again when we moved out of the area. Katie and her team are the best in the business!! Thank you for everything!
Thanks to Katie, we were able to find and purchase a lovely condo in Shorewood as our 2nd home. Katie has been a delight to work with. She has patiently shown us, and our daughter, several properties in the north shore area until finding the perfect one. From that time until closing she has been very responsive and helpful. Our mortgage lender commented that she's never seen a more helpful realtor. All of this was accomplished long distance. Thank you, Katie!
My family worked with Katie for several years, hunting for the perfect home with very specific needs/desires. She was incredibly patient and kind, so reliable and honest. Her expertise helped us to make several difficult decisions over the years. She stuck with us and finally we did it, we found the perfect house. Couldn't recommend her enough!
We worked with Katie for both the purchase our new home and the sale of our former home. She had come highly recommended by several friends and she definitely lived up to the wonderful praise. I think this is for two reasons. First, she really knows her stuff - she knew just the right offer to place on our new house to make sure our offer won out. She also knew our old house was worth more than we thought it was, and we ended up earning a great deal more than we anticipated on that sale. The second reason Katie is so great is her personal touch. She really went above and beyond to help us, even picking up some items from our old house we had forgotten and dropping them off at our house, and accommodating our need to sign closing papers at house, instead of at the office as planned, because our sick baby was napping. These personal touches weren't expected, but they were so appreciated. Add me to the list of people who recommend Katie!
I started with a checklist of what I was looking for (the dream). Katie was able to help me find a home that checked every box (amazing). I would like to offer a checklist of what to look for in a realtor. Katie will check every box. Realtor Checklist * style/approach to fit my needs * market knowledge * community knowledge * contract knowledge * 'art and science' balance/understanding * front foot with appointments and showings * offer, paperwork, title, all the pieces - attention to detail * respected professional * good working relationships * effective communicator * insightful opinions, when asked - important guidance, when needed
Katie was very patient and took the time to explain every aspect of the homebuying process, which was very helpful to us as first-time buyers. She also worked around our schedules when it came to touring homes and was incredibly responsive whenever we reached out. Overall, we loved working with her!
