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!
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...
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!
Katie has an incredible attention to detail, is honest in her feedback, and was a pleasure to work with.
Katie came very highly recommended to us, and she did not disappoint! We chose Katie because of her knowledge and expertise in the area we wanted to buy our home. The insights and advice she provided while searching for a home during this difficult market were incredibly helpful and it was her strategic approach that eventually landed us an accepted offer. Katie acts as a strong advocate for her clients and has a thorough understanding of the local housing market. To top it off, she is a kind and caring person and was a true delight to work with. We would strongly recommend Katie to anyone interested in selling or buying a home. - Tom and Michelle Knezevich
I reached out to Katie, and we connected very quickly--She understood what I was looking for/preferring in selling my house. Everything from paperwork, staging, photos and approving showings was easy, flexible and I felt included in the process--very much a team effort, which led to selling the house quickly! I would recommend Katie anytime, and will gladly work with her again!
