Katherine is a central-Connecticut native and has spent many childhood summers on the shoreline at her family's beach house in Madison. She has been a resident of Old Saybrook since 2007.
She attended Choate Rosemary Hall and earned degrees in Business Studies and Spanish from Drew University where she was also a member of the women's basketball team. While in college she had an internship with Warburg Realty in NYC and worked under top-producing agent Deborah Lupard who can be seen regularly on HGTV's Selling New York. She also studied in Seville, Spain and after graduating went on to teach English in Thailand and Argentina.
Through her experiences and travels, she has gained leadership and problem-solving skills and she uses her resourcefulness and pragmatic thinking to make the home buying, selling, and renting process a smooth one. She is always committed to getting sellers the best return on their investment, and to helping buyers and renters achieve their vision of the ideal home. By always keeping up with trends in the marketplace and being aware of technological advances, she is able to advise and guide her clients to make decisions with confidence and ease.
Integrity, honesty, care, trust, and compassion are traits on which Katherine prides herself. She knows the importance of her client relationships and goes above and beyond for them. Her reliability and responsiveness are unparalleled as she always has her phone on hand so she can respond quickly and timely to each client's needs and concerns.
Katherine is an absolutely wonderful real estate agent! She is very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, energetic, full of ideas and contacts, and a great negotiator. She helped me throughout the process of buying one home, and dressing up and selling my prior home.
Katherine walked me through all the paperwork and explained all the details. She assisted me with the ins and outs of the inspection process (as both a buyer and a seller). She had fantastic ideas for sprucing up my prior, older, house to prepare it for, what turned out to be, a very quick sale at my asking price. She explained everything and aided me right through the closing process. Katherine was available to answer my questions day or night. She always got back to me within an hour or two at most, usually within minutes.
I'm sure I'm forgetting many of the ways Katherine led me through the, at times, long and grueling process of buying a new house and immediately selling the old house. While I probably would have made it through the process with another agent, having Katherine on my side made all the difference.
In my opinion, Katherine Luby is an absolutely fantastic real estate agent!
