She suggested simple changes to increase the value of the house. With in 3 weeks, we had house on the market and sold it after 10 days. Katie was very organized, took charge and a personal interest in making a very difficult closing situation happen. She was in contact with me from day one to the last paper was signed. I would highly recommend Katie. Shes amazing."

You weren't the least bit worried about the kids being just a commission, in fact you placed them with an agent that was kind & had their best interest at heart! Not a bit of pleasure, only solid advice each step of the way! Your finance person got the kids a great rate and saved them money at closing, while keeping them in a conventional mortgage which made their choices so much greater! Thanks again!!!"¿

On a brisk October day 25+ years ago I was walking the beach in Maine with my black lab mix when I conveniently bumped in to an acquaintance I hadn't seen for 5 years. I was up for a life change and was open to pretty much anything having grown tired of long, cold winters and seeing my recent graduate school opportunity disappear due to funding cuts. Little did I know this walk on the beach would change my life forever. When I was close enough to see it was Marilyn who was happily wrestling with my dog, the joyful reunion began and ended with an offer for me to rent out her home on Siesta Key she and her husband had bought 2 years prior but hadn't had a chance to visit yet. Seriously? I had never been to Florida before but a warm, sunny tropical beach sure did sound better than wind chills of 20 below! Two days for a yard sale and 3 days on the road until I arrived in Sarasota with my furry black friend by my side. With $160 in my pocket; no job, no one I knew, an uninhabited house full of surprises what did I have to lose? Come to find out- absolutely nothing! With the happy addition of a wonderful husband and 2 fabulous children, the more I have become a part of this community the more I love it and realize how much it has to offer everyone willing take the chance and call it home! Are you ready? I'd love to help!
Working for over 20 years in healthcare as a companion, private duty nurse and massage therapist is a reflection of my ongoing desire to put others first. Compassion has always been the basis for understanding others and real estate is no exception. My top priority is making sure your needs are not only heard but actualized. Whether you are selling your home, your parents' home, or looking to purchase a new home, I will be there with you every step of the way making sure you derive the most benefit with the least amount of stress possible because you're not just selling or buying real estate, you're saying goodbye and hello to a home.
