The value of real estate was instilled in me at a very early age. Growing up my mother was a real estate agent; my parents owned residential rental properties and commercial properties. Once out in the real world after college I lived in an apartment just one and half years before buying my first home (in Baltimore) at 22. Two years later I bought my first FULL GUT rehab. The house was so smelly and gross, but I loved it. I went by there every night after work and stayed on top of the contractors to get the job done right. The renovation bug had hit. The Realtor Investor emerged. I knew real estate was for me and after I got my license I worked diligently and sold a high volume for my clients. I eventually quit my career as an engineer, and followed my passion. My new business began to take off as I found deals for friends, and eventually, new clients who were referred to me by other clients. I am fortunate that I really earned success by word of mouth. I believe it started because I listen to people's wants and needs. This helps me find people THE place they want. I am a Live Baltimore Agent, and I work in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. I am familiar with the Baltimore real estate market and how quickly houses can sell.
As a Buyer's agent I help the buyer negotiate the BEST deal, often better than they'd imagined possible. As a Seller's agent I utilize the newest media to market properties, as well as the traditional brick and mortar approaches like flyers and open houses. Every real estate transaction is important, no matter the size. I look forward to hearing your hopes and dreams and helping you reach them in any way I can. I'm happy to provide references if you are interested in interviewing me to be YOUR Realtor.

What My Clients Are Saying
“Someone wrote that a client would feel like she was Kate’s only one. That’s how I felt when I was selling my condo.Her professional and yet friendly availability was unfailing. She offered frank advice and provided the impetus to get things done. My property was not a million dollar property, it was minimal, but still she encouraged me and negotiated a sale price that was beyond my hopes. She knows the unique intricacies of the business and market. Kate also quickly tuned in to my temperament and taught me the necessary information I needed. Any buyer or seller could feel confident with her assistance and direction.”user8827207
“I can't say enough good things about Kate! This was my husband's and I first time buying a house and Kate took us through the process step-by-step and answered our countless questions with grace. Given her background in civil engineering and years of experience as a realtor, she knows exactly what to look for and more importantly look OUT for when house hunting. She's has a wide network of professionals that she will kindly connect you with and was super easy to communicate it. Most importantly, she will be your biggest advocate during the negotiation stage and is not afraid of a fight. We would absolutely recommend Kate to our dearest family and friends in the future.”Annie embertson
“Kate was excellent! She came highly recommended by friends, and I’m happy to recommend her to anyone looking for a home. Her experience in real estate and as a former engineer greatly helped us through the house hunting process from beginning to end! We learned so much from her! She’s very responsive and was always ready to respond to all of our many, many questions along the way.”joshua tauzin
“Kate was absolutely incredible to work with on selling our home. We were sure we were going to choose another agent before meeting her; she blew us away with how prepared she was to discuss our home, and every step of the way she continued to display that attention to detail and organization. We followed her advice every step of the way and received 10k over what we expected to be our best case scenario, and firmly credit Kate with making that happen. We couldn’t be happier or more eager to recommend her to our friends in the area.”imperfectswitch
“Dynamic buyer's agent! Persevered until the right home came on the market. Made submitting a contract a painless procedure with superior attention to detail.”woolvertonmtn0
“Kate was reliable and extremely helpful in my first home-buying experience. She helped me negotiate a price that I thought was fair for a home, and her referrals (i.e., inspectors, electricians) were of superior quality. With her engineering background and home buying/maintaining experience, she educated me on any home maintenance issues that may creep up in the future. I was always so frightful of the home buying experience, but she made it very smooth for me! She is always responsive (which I loved) when you need her!”gingerlee6890
“As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous and confused about the whole home buying process but Kate guided me through everything with ease. She is a true professional but not the uptight and boring type, she's fun and funny and truly a kind person. I am forever grateful that she helped me find my dream home.”JULIE SCARDINO
“Kate is simply fantastic. She has worked for us on multiple occasions and always done a spectacular job. We engaged Kate to manage our Baltimore property and she successfully helped us rent it out for a profit. She helped us buy one house and then sell it when we relocated, also for a profit. Kate is knowledgeable, professional, savvy, proactive, a hard worker, and just plain fun! She always took care of us and she will absolutely do a great job for you. She excels at everything she does and she can be trusted to look out for you. You will enjoy working with her and be thankful you did.”michelle blake7
