"Kathleen recently helped us purchase a home in Santa Rosa, CA. Kathleen never let us down. She was professional and courteous and very personable. She was very knowledgable and guided us through the entire process. We felt that she advocated for us when we needed her to, and was always there if we had questions or concerns. It felt like we were her number one priority every time we called or needed something from her. She responded right away and we always felt like we were in good hands. She added that extra effort that is so rare today. We would recommend Kathleen to anyone looking for property without hesitation and will always direct people to her that ask if we know any 'A Team' Real Estate Agents in the area." Ben & Connie

"My family has nothing but rave reviews for Kathleen. My husband and I recently sold our home in the city to begin our search in Marin. We were totally new to Marin and Kathleen took her time to guide us through each town and neighborhood to give us a feel for the different communities within the broader area in which we were looking. The market was pretty tough and not too many homes were popping up, but Kathleen dedicated her time and energy to the search, digging into her contacts to show us homes that weren't yet listed to ensure that we could get a foot in the door if we found a winner. We ended up purchasing a home in an area totally off our radar after Kathleen suggested we take a look. The house is amazing, and as I think back to our first meeting with Kathleen, this house checks off every single box from our wishlist. We’re so happy in our new home, love love love the neighborhood, and feel like we really got a steal. All thanks to Kathleen’s dedication to our family and expert knowledge of Marin real estate."
