Katie has sold two houses for us. One on the first day! She physically helped us organize and stage, is extremely professional and knows the market. We have referred her to friends and she did the same great job! Would highly recommend!
I needed to find a piece of vacant land to move a house onto. I wanted to be in King County and more specifically not too far from Seattle. Not only did it need to be vacant, but it also had to allow a manufactured home. Katie worked with me for about 5 months to find the right place to bring my home to. She was always professional, helped me find answers when I needed them and was always very responsive. If I move again, I will definitely use Katie!
Having Katie for a real estate agent was definitely a 5 star experience! She is brilliant! I was new to the area and had asked for referrals from friends... from our first phone conversation, I felt a connection and her clear intention to help me achieve my goal of owning a home! Katie's timing was always great! She did her homework, set expectations appropriately and always followed through with what she said she would do. She's a masterful negotiator and I felt that she was working behind the scenes to fulfill my wishes and best interests. She worked well with my loan processor and title company to coordinate everything. Did I mention she has a great sense of humor too?? It was a delightful home buying experience, Katie is a pleasure to work with!
There was an additional layer of this process, as I am a VA loan receiver. Finding qualified properties and adjusting to the different process came naturally to Katie. She was able to assist and fix a few issues that came in during the close, and we closed ON TIME. She went WAY above and beyond to make it happen.
We wanted to know EVERYTHING about the home buying process and asked Katie to explain all the details over and over. She was endlessly patient with us, gave thorough explanations, provided reassurance as necessary and stepped back when we wanted to take the lead. Communication was always a breeze--prompt and reliable and never felt like a sales pitch. Not only does Katie know Seattle inside and out, but she also has a great knack for reading personal taste and style to make the right match. She will admit when she's not the expert on a particular subject and bring in help as needed. Not only would we love to work with her again professionally, but we adore her as a person and is simply a delight to be around. We have pushed friends into buying a home just so they can work with her! Cannot recommend highly enough
Last fall I purchased the home I've been wanting for so many years. Katie made this happen for me, and I can't recommend her highly enough. She understood what I was looking for, where I was looking for it, and what I could and couldn't sacrifice. This made all the difference. Katie was extremely honest and helpful along every step of the way. This was my first home purchase. The whole process felt smooth, safe, and I was very comfortable in knowing I had Katie looking out for my best interests.
Katie was an absolute pleasure to work with both on a professional & personal level. She navigated the entire process with calm & confidence, advising me & keeping me well informed about everything from market changes to paint & carpet colors & scheduling efficiencies along the way. I know from past experience just how stressful the process of buying &/or selling a home can be. While I think it's impossible to completely eliminate the natural anxiety that accompanies such a major event, Katie's expert guidance & passion for what she does made this a wholly different & positive experience for me. In a nutshell - 2 thumbs up for this lady
I have used Katie to facilitate two real estate transactions and I am in the process of having her sell my house. Her knowledge and exuberance make her not only fun to work with, but you feel safe in her hands. I highly recommend Katie to anyone in need of a realtor.
My husband and I have used Katie Hildebrand for our real estate needs for the past several years and are currently working with her again as we hope to downsize in the near future. Katie has a solid knowledge of sales and listings in the West Seattle area; she continually updates us on current listings and also keeps us current with what has sold. We value her input and expertise immensely. Our current home will going on the market in the near future and I have no doubt that Katie will go the whole nine yards to ensure a smooth transition. She is fun to work with but always professional. One thing that really impresses me about Katie is her listening skills. She listens carefully and attentively to our needs.
I have worked with Katie multiple times during the past 9 years. She sold me my first Condo in Seattle. I found her to be honest, direct and approachable. She really asked for and listened to my needs, and was very fair in negotiations. 9 years later, I also used Katie in help finding my business & commercial real estate to rent. This is a challenging process in today's market- I never could have done this without Katie's help. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and positive. I would (and do) recommend her to everyone I know.
Moving to Seattle from Denver was a crazy enough experience but I am so glad that I met Katie! Katie showed us all around town, helping us explore different neighborhoods and ultimately helped us land in West Seattle! She was able to get us the house we fell in love with for under market value with a quick closing date. Katie has a wealth of knowledge and walks you through each step of the way. She is also a genuine person that has your best interest at heart. I honestly can say that I wouldn't have been able to do it without Kate! I am also happy to call her my neighbor! Thanks for sharing your love of Seattle with us!
Katie sold an investment property for me in the West Seattle area for far more than our asking price. I am an absentee owner so I needed a lot of extra assistance since I was not onsite. In addition to selling the property and organizing all of the usual logistics (staging/photography etc.) Katie also coordinated all of the repair/touch-up work that needed to be done as well as negotiating the counter offers. I would highly recommend Katie to anyone looking to sell their home or investment property in the Seattle area.
