  • “Kathy’s the best! She has helped us buy three homes so far, including a complicated short sale, a bankruptcy sale, and a sale that was nearly bungled by a inadequate loan officer. In each case Kathy was a sort of sea captain sailing through a storm, not only dealing with crises, but also with our fears and lack of knowledge. She was inevitably correct in her dealings, and each sale was a success. She became our family realtor. If we decided to buy another house, we would call her immediately, confident that we’d have much of the knowledge we needed right then over the phone. She gets our Hero Realtor award. ”

  • “My wife and I have worked with Kathy twice now. Besides her overall knowledge of the housing market, she clearly explains every step of the process before and during. One of our favorite things about Kathy is that she will give advice on a particular option and then step back so you can make the final informed decision yourself. Even through stressful times like awaiting offer acceptance, she’ll reach out just to make sure you are comfortable. When and if we sell our current home, Kathy will be the first person we call. ”

  • “Kathy Rodriguez helped us to buy our starter home as a newly married couple over six years ago, and made it such a pleasant experience, that we didn’t hesitate for a moment to reach out to her when we recently sold that house and bought our dream home. In both instances, Kathy treated us like family, always going above and beyond. She helped us to stage our starter home and I’m convinced it was her excellent eye that ensured that our house sold for well over asking. She is knowledgable, well-respected, and a pure joy to work with. We would never think about selling or buying a home without her by our side and we have recommended her to countless friends and family members. ”

  • “Kathy transformed the difficult and often scary home buying process into one that was not only easy to understand, but fun! We worked with her to purchase our home several years ago, and are so pleased with the results. She helped guide us through every step, thoughtfully listening to our personal goals, and ultimately working her magic to negotiate a deal on a home that we originally thought was out of our price range. We were thrilled! Her knowledge of market trends and savviness in this industry is unparalleled. She is a joy to work with, and we continue to recommend her to family and friends. We would never think about make a move or investment in the future without calling Kathy first! ”
