I can safely echo all the positive comments that others have made about Kathy. I purchased at home in February of 2012 after an initial short sale offer back in November of 2011. Kathy saw the slow process through with periodic updates on the status. If you are willing to work with her, she is willing to work with you.
Not living locally made it difficult for me to view all properties but Kathy was the consummate professional attending the opening houses and emailing me the photos and comments for the best home possible. Due to her attentiveness, I wanted to purchase another Elk Grove home. Due to the recent rising property prices, she suggested that I purchase a new home with all the new items and upgrades not found in older homes for about the same price. I took her sound advice and moved into a Taylor Morrison home for about $160 per square feet which much less than the $180-200 per square feet.
Kathy is willing to answer the hard questions, help me stand in during the final walk-through and, go the extra mile to ensure that you are satisfied as a client. She even promised me a nice house warming gift.
