Testimonials from clients:
I just thought I’d drop you a brief note to thank you for all your help in selling the house on Aldrich Avenue and buying the new one over here on Monterey. First, thanks for all the attention you gave the project. It was your prompting that got me from spending the next couple of years in a major fix-up project and into a house that fit my needs better than the old one would have.
At first I was surprised at how far and wide you ranged looking for that “perfect fit” of a house. All I had to do was decide what I really wanted and then describe it to you.
It was love at first sight when we walked into this house. I had my suspicions just looking at the photos, but I was convinced as soon as I stepped through the front door. And the purchase negotiations went smoothly, too.
Selling the old house was nearly as easy. Actually, selling it was even easier. Thanks to your help and you picking a good selling price it sold for more than the asking price on the first day. It was heartbreaking when the first purchaser reneged two days later. Fortunately, you already had other offers lined up and it was only a matter of hours before the second sale was made, once again for more than asking price. All your work, and your knowledge of the market, really paid off for us. Thanks again.

Kate Walsh was our Realtor but she also acted as educator, designer, staging expert and interior decorator! Understanding our “need for speed”, she quickly helped us make easy, but powerful changes to our home that would show it to its best advantage. She suggested painting some walls and picked the colors and helped us with a modest kitchen makeover to update the house. She brought in fresh flowers, pictures for the walls and some decorative items that gave the home a very current and upscale feel.
Kate’s communication is stellar, she kept us well informed of all that was occurring and always returned our calls and answered our questions promptly. If she didn’t know the answer, she found someone who did. She is pleasant, gracious and professional to work with. I can speak for my wife and say we both highly recommend her.

Being a first-time home buyer, it was important to me that I partner with a Realtor that would listen to my ideas and give me experience-based objective advice. I also recognized that I would need to have a trusted guide through the process of visiting homes, negotiating a purchase, and finalizing the closing. After being frustrated by several other realtors, I took the advice of one of my co-workers and contacted Kate Walsh. Within a few minutes of meeting Kate, I knew that she could be a great asset to my home search.
After our initial discussions and some savvy advice from Kate, we formulated a search strategy. Within a few showings, Kate had developed a superb sense of what I was looking for in a house. And after only a few more showings, I purchased a home that fit my needs perfectly, in a great location, with a great price. Kate was absolutely stellar throughout the inspection and negotiation phases of the purchase, and deftly handled the details of the closing. One of Kate’s greatest characteristics is the trust she engenders with her professionalism, attention to detail, and overarching sense of advocacy. Furthermore, Kate made the process fun. In the future, when my plans call for selling this house and purchasing another, I already know who my Realtor is: Kate Walsh.

My experience with Kate Walsh was a unique one. A friend from work had highly recommended her, so I tried her as I started my house hunt. She asked her set of questions – what I was looking for, what I needed from a house. She took me to a few, and at each home, asked me what I liked and didn’t like. After a few homes, I realized she was quickly figuring out (and in the process, helping me to figure out) what would work for me. And then, every now and again, she’d throw in something different, as if to check out, “is this really what you want”? It was actually one of these that ended up catching my heart. Kate has a great low-key approach, and her intelligence is what helped make the process fun. I thought I’d be looking for months, and I was pleased how quickly we found homes that were of interest, and how soon I found the home that I fell in love with. She is a uniquely talented Realtor.

Working with her helped me find the home which met all of my needs and expectations. Her commitment to doing whatever it takes to help me clarify my intentions, verbalize my thoughts and actually find the home I had always been looking for was an experience I feel so blessed to have. She is an exceptional woman with great insight, understanding and business sense to steer me in the right direction and help make what could have been a long and painful process, truly an enjoyable successful journey. Many, many heartfelt thanks and appreciation.

Kate is amazing! As a first time home buyer I had many questions during the process. Kate was able to answer all of these as well as ask the appropriate questions on my behalf that I didn’t think of! Purchasing your first home can be fun and challenging at the same time. Having Kate at my side helped ease the challenges and multiply the fun factor! She went well beyond the call of duty helping to find information about various aspects and provide a rapid response to any questions.
.I highly recommend using Kate to purchase or sell your home. Her personal touch is very unique and a wonderful find!
