The Name You Can Trust

When you want quality service from an agent that sincerely cares about you, call me.



"I just wanted to thank you for your help.  From the first step of making Allison feel comfortable listing our house, to answering my nine million emails.  I felt like you were 100% committed to selling my undesirable old house, and equally committed to showing us new houses in a variety of areas and price ranges.  We knew you had other clients, but you always made us feel like we were your only clients, or at least the most important ones.  So to summarize, thank you.  It was a very stressful time for Allison and I, but you made it manageable throughout the whole process.  If anybody mentions wanting to sell their house, I will without hesitation tell them to contact you.  Since Allison and I are never moving again, our paths probably won't cross much, but Allison and I both have the greatest respect for you and appreciate you for helping us find our "perfect" house." James K. Hired Kathleen in 2012/2013

"Kathleen is a SUPER reliable person who takes her job very serious and with a lot of passion. She sold our home in much less than expected and we are EXTREMELY happy. She helped us in our purchase too. If you are looking for great results, expert advise with high integrity, I recommend Kathleen to anybody looking to sell or buy a home!" Ilena L. Hired Kathleen in 2012/2013

"Kathleen is a wonderful sales agent who helped my family during our corporate relocation process to New Jersey. Her expert knowledge of the local area was invaluable as we knew very little upon arriving. She attentively listened to our needs, and was able to help us find a wonderful home that met our criteria, all within the incredibly narrow time frame of one week. We are very pleased with the home that Kathleen secured for us, and will certainly seek her assistance again should the future have another move in store for us." Steven S. Hired Kathleen in 2010

"A true superstar realtor!! Kathleen was a pleasure to work with and extremely helpful in our move. She listened to our needs, helped us refine those needs throughout the process of finding a house and consistently went above and beyond to make sure we were able to get our dream home. We highly recommend Kathleen!"
Deb C. Hired Kathleen in 2014

"Kathleen had represented me through the sale of my existing home, as well as the purchase of a newly constructed home. I have found her to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Kathleen to anyone needing an experienced real estate agent."
Andrew M. Hired Kathleen in 2005 (hired more than once)

“Kathleen was wonderful from the very start. My fiancé and I were looking to sell our homes and find a home together. Kathleen was the realtor in the sale of our existing homes and was great support to us during the very stressful time of building a new home. She gave us many tips to help sell our properties quickly. She was there every step of the way during the horrific time we had building our new home (horrible, unethical builder) which took nearly 2 years to complete. Through the arduous process, she became more than just our realtor, she became our friend. Kathleen always give you her full attention and you can feel confident that she has your best interest at heart. I would not hesitate to recommend Kathleen to anyone needing the services of a competent realtor!” Jolene W. Hired Kathleen in 2007

"It has taken me so long to say thank you. I really appreciate everything you did for me. There was so much going on with my mom at the time, you where such a great person to work with and a great help throughout the process. You put everything at ease for me and my family during a very stressful time."Karen W. Hired Kathleen in 2011

"Thanks for all the hard work you did in the sale of our home. We know you kept the deal together and if you ever need a reference, please contact us. We would be happy to let everyone know how reliable and professional you are." Mitch A. Hired Kathleen in 2011
