You win for realtor of the century!
Our words cannot do justice to what an incredible experience it was to work with you two on the sale of our house. We feel so lucky to have found you. Your vision of the strategic upgrades we made to the house, and your amazing organization and follow through to make them happen were KEY to our 6 offers and insane over-asking sale!
It was especially critical and unique that you had such skilled contractors and vendors to help us whip our house into shape so quickly. Not every realtor is willing to be so hands on. I need to frame the photos of you and Tatum putting all those cabinets together! The house looked spectacular after you got through with it and that made all the difference.
Thanks for your hard work, vision, intelligent advice on how to position, price and strategize our sale. And of course, thank you for the patience, never-ending smiles and emotional support. We could not have pulled this off without you two.

"Most importantly, we trusted Kathy"
A family member connected us with Kathy, and after a negative experience with a previous agent, Kathy was a breath of fresh air we needed.
Kathy knows the ins and outs of the Seattle market, and equipped us with the information we needed to help guide us towards a smart purchase. She went above and beyond, even previewing the properties prior to showing us, and providing objective pro and con lists for each based on our wants and needs. She kept us informed for each step of the process and was quick to answer any questions we had. During negotiations, it was as if she already knew exactly what was going to happen, before it happened, and gave us spot-on advice each time.
Most importantly, we trusted Kathy. Not only did we trust things would get done the right way (which alleviated a ton of stress!), but we believed she truly did have our best interest in mind.
I can’t recommend Kathy enough. We are so happy with our new condo!

“Professional, knowledgeable, and honest”
I have purchased real estate property for both investment and personal use across two different countries and three states in the past 3 years and have never met a realtor who was as engaged and professional as Kathy. When I decided to purchase at Escala, she was patient and understood exactly what I was looking for and delivered as promised. Our negotiations were direct and swift and the closing process was a breeze.
A year later, I decided to rent out my condominium and reached out to Kathy to help find suitable candidates. She showed my place to a number of prospects and each time provided a summary memo in an email, which went into detail about feedback. When we found tenants for my condo, she had them write a biography about themselves, which was a nice touch. She coordinated all the paperwork and I never had to be on-site. Kathy is professional, knowledgeable, and honest – all three traits I look for in a realtor. I look forward to doing continued business with Kathy.
"Kathy’s work is nothing short of exemplary. All of my transactions with Kathy went through efficiently, smoothly and without major issues."
My husband and I just bought a home and were so impressed with our relator, Tatum! She was highly knowledgeable, professional and very quick! We want to thank you very much for your help, guidance and persistence through this wild ride. You and your expertise mean so much to us!

“A reliable and great partner”
My wife and I first purchased our apartment in Seattle in late 2010. Kathy was extremely helpful and worked with us, and with the broker who introduced us to the building, to ensure a smooth purchase transaction; which went through without any hitch.
In late 2011, we relocated for personal reasons and decided to look for a tenant for our unit. Once again, Kathy was a great help in finding tenants in just a couple of weeks and in liaising with us , we had left Seattle at that point, and with the tenants to get the background checks carried out, and the lease signed and everything in place.
Finally, we sold our unit earlier this year and called without hesitation on Kathy again to help us with that transaction. The entire sale from listing to closing took just 29 days, pretty much the timetable Kathy had predicted, and was very satisfactory in every respect. We were pleased with the sales price. All in all, Kathy has been a reliable and great partner in these three transactions for our apartment in Escala. We would recommend her warmly as a broker.

I have known Kathy over 6 years and I used her services many times due to her ability to deliver results beyond expectation every single time. She helped me buy my condo, helped me rent it and finally helped me sell it at a profit recently. Every time, Kathy delivered consistently and is great at building trust. She practices transparency and always aims for a win-win for all involved parties.
Kathy understands the local market well, has great connections, extremely professional yet friendly, open to ideas and amazingly responsive. Real estate transactions can be daunting, confusing and overwhelming....but not with Kathy. She makes the process simple, seamless and free of bad surprises.
I'm glad that I met Kathy. I strongly recommend her for your real estate needs. You will be making an excellent choice to sign her.
"Kathy and Tatum are truly a real estate dream team"
We had the great fortune of working with Kathy four years ago in purchasing our first downtown home, and most recently we completed our second and third real estate transactions with Kathy and Tatum. Their market knowledge, professionalism, and strategic approach in assessing property values are unrivaled. Kathy and Tatum enthusiastically helped us navigate through Seattle’s hyper-competitive condominium and single family home markets. They maintained focus in all aspects of each transaction to ensure our best interests while working within our compressed time constraints. The buying and selling process was seamless as they proactively addressed every detail behind the scenes. Kathy and Tatum are truly a real estate dream team and a pleasure to work with in every sense.

“Our overall experience with Kathy and Tatum was fantastic."
Som and I were looking to buy a property in downtown Seattle when we came across Kathy, who at the time was the seller's realtor. Kathy is professional, knowledgeable and really pleasant to work with. She helped us purchase our condo and get through all of the issues of buying in downtown and what to look for.
Two years later we decided to sell and Kathy was our chosen broker. After we sold our condo Kathy helped us find a rental unit within our same building, which made it so convenient and stress-free to move. While we waited to purchase our next place, Kathy always checked-in and gave us updates on potential new listing so we didn't miss an opportunity.
Kathy worked closely with us so she understood the type of place we were looking for. Our overall experience with Kathy and Tatum was fantastic. They were always on top of our requests and provided lots of useful information. When we look to sell our next unit they will definitely be our team.

“Clear, consistent communication.”
I have known Kathy for 2 years and have had the privilege of working with her on multiple projects. Kathy represented me on the sale of my downtown condo as well as acting as my agent in the purchase of a condo in the same area. She also helped me secure a renter for one of my properties.
I have been an executive in the business world (intellectual property) for the past 8 years and have been involved in over 200 successful transactions and many unsuccessful ones. I mention this purely to give perspective to my scope of experience dealing with transactions and dealing with large potential volatile deals and clients.
Kathy’s work is nothing short of exemplary. All of my transactions with Kathy went through efficiently, smoothly and without major issues. Furthermore, when we did encounter any small roadblock, Kathy tackled the issues with swift professionalism and with clear, consistent communication. Kathy has also been very generous with her time and expertise. She has always made herself available to answer questions, even those not related to our current deal.
In summary, Kathy is highly motivated, intelligent and a great communicator. She has my respect and my highest recommendation.
“Kathy is professional, knowledgeable, and honest – all three traits I look for in a realtor. I look forward to doing continued business with Kathy.”
“You truly have made this experience most enjoyable"
This has really worked out nicely for Georgia and I, we appreciate all of your efforts in this entire process. We are super excited about our new home at Escala. You were one of our first contacts in the building and you truly have made this experience most enjoyable. Your work professionally is much appreciated, and Georgia and I also feel like we have made a new friend. Thanks Kathy Crotts for your hard work and great attitude.
