    Born and raised right here in Valrico, I have watched this community go from cows to commerce. I love getting to call this place home, and I love helping others find a home here as well. Whether you are buying or selling, I want to help you with this important transition in your life.

    Here are some of the things I can do for you:

    Find Your Next Home
    You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

    Sell a Home
    When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

    Consult on Home Selling Tactics
    Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

    As a first-time buyer, I thought realtors were like mechanics. They would find every way to milk you and take advantage of your ignorance. Kathie broke that theory. She told me upfront that she had my back and I was skeptical. When she began showing homes to me, she was honest and opinionated. I got to see how she was helping me be objective and realistic. Then came the stress after selecting one (then two or three) I had no clue how to navigate or handle the shock of the "initial " estimate. Whenever she assured me she had my back and was on my side, I felt it. The most telling moment was when she realized the loan company was nickle and diming my patience, time, and MONEY, she worked to find me another company that would not abuse me. She recognized my naivete and protected me. That's the most undeniable sign of a trustworthy realtor. I will recommend her to anybody and will 100%use her again in the future.

    Thank you so much for trusting me! After everything, I still never told you that you could freak out. I am so glad we were able to get everything worked out, and get you into your beautiful new home. I can't wait to see what you do to make it your own!

    For my home buying experience in Tampa, I have nothing but praise for Kathie Collins and her tireless work ethic. This was not my first home purchase and I was genuinely impressed by her tenacity and dedication to finding the right place. She has great local insight and did an incredible job placing me with my home. For those with Tampa on their horizon, Kathie Collins should be their first call. Great work, Kathie!!

    House hunting was hectic until I met Kathie Collins. Kathie went above and beyond in helping me find the perfect fit for my family. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and follow ups made me feel that she really cared not only for the line of business she is in but most importantly the customers she serve. I feel like I met a friend! She was just the best and I highly recommended her.
    Response from Kathie
    Thank you so much for the kind words! It was my pleasure to help you find the perfect home. I am so happy our paths have crossed, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for the both of us. This is the start of a wonderful friendship!

    Something You May Not Know About Me...

    I believe it is so important to get to know the people you with, and that includes someone like myself... A Realtor. I have always had a passion for the Theatre. I love everything about it. Watching it, reading about it, researching it, and most importantly, being on the stage. It has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. So, one of my goals for 2019 was to do my first non-musical play, as I have only ever done musicals. I love musicals, don't get me wrong. I just wanted t...

    What real estate has taught me so far...

    As I've said before, this career has always been in my heart to do, but never really knew why. Leaving a career I have known for over a decade wasn't an easy decision to make. I knew I wasn't happy, but changing careers, especially to one without a steady income, isn't a life choice you make overnight. I made that choice. It was one of the most frightening things I have ever done. But now, after getting started, working steadily... I can see the bricks being laid for the foundation of somethi...

    Why did I become a REALTOR?

    When I was in Kindergarten at Alafia Elementary School, I had a box of crayons with eight colors. I had grossly underestimated how many colors you would need. The girl next to me had sixty-four colors, and her box had a sharpener! I was jealous. She saw me struggling, trying to mix colors, and she pushed her box of crayons toward me and smiled. Instant besties. When we were in fourth grade, her family decided to sell their home and move to a larger home. They hired a REALTOR, and I was there the...
