So if youâ€™re reading this I guess youâ€™re considering Kathy Courter as your realtor. My wife and I had the good luck of recently finding and working with her as we sold our lakefront home and had a wonderful experience from start to finish.
If youâ€™ve dealt with realtors before (and we have, buying and selling several properties) you will know that â€“ at their worst â€“ they often can seem to be on a low par with say car salesmen; (sorry car salesmen!), constantly running off the same canned spiel they give everyone with a phony enthusiasm and over eager smiles, talking over you and all the while making you suspect theyâ€™re probably thinking more about what they want for lunch as they pretend to listen to you. Some realtors will highball your homes worth simply to get you to sign (and all the while knowing itâ€™ll never sell at that price, 6 months later saying â€œWell, we may need to consider lowering the price, the market seems to have slowedâ€), others will lowball your homeâ€™s value just so they can get in and out as fast as possible and just grab their commission without having to do a lot of work as they run off to the next one.
NONE of this reflects who Kathy Courter is. We actually had a pretty tricky home to place a value on, standard comps didnâ€™t really apply, and Kathy helped us navigate all that get the absolute the best price we could. She WORKS for you. And yes, of course she smiles and is quite pleasant but she also really listens to who you are and what you are trying to achieve, and she always responds quickly to both phone calls and texts. Kathy follows everything thatâ€™s going on both closely and seriously and asks pointed questions that are the perfect proof that sheâ€™s really listening and paying attention. She makes absolutely spot-on calls and suggestions and is a lightning fast problem solver who thinks on her feet and in the moment. Yes, she often has a lot to say but the huge difference with Kathy is that it isnâ€™t a tired routine â€“ she simply knows a great deal, has a lot to tell you and is quite excited to share it and help you achieve your goals. If youâ€™re wise youâ€™ll listen to her because she will definitely guide you to the conclusion you want. And isnâ€™t that what itâ€™s all about?
We both absolutely loved working with Kathy and would again without hesitation. Kathy is one of the rare ones: her integrity is rock solid, sheâ€™s trustworthy, her enthusiasm is strong and genuine, her knowledge and talent are scary deep, her energy level is just amazing, and overall, sheâ€™s one talented lady and professional who really knows what sheâ€™s doing. Kathy gets results.
No, Kathyâ€™s not a close friend of ours or my sister in law; we only met her about two or three months ago and all you just read was written from the heart and based solely on our recent experience of working with her. If all the above sounds amazing, pretty incredible and almost over the top, Iâ€™m glad: youâ€™re starting to get the full picture. Kathy rocks. Call her, you wonâ€™t be disappointed.
