“The thing I love most about being a Realtor is having my clients’ backs. I love a good negotiation and never back down from having tough conversations on their behalf. There’s a lot of fun that can come along with being in real estate, but it’s the challenge of showing up when things get tough that I really love.”

What Our Clients Love About Kate

My wife and I worked with Kate to find and buy our dream home! In this competitive market she was hugely helpful in helping us open our horizons to various areas of Richmond and find some hidden gems along the way. When we ultimately found our dream home she used her knowledge of the market to craft a competitive offer and we are well on our way to living in our new home!
