Originally from Colorado, I moved to the Bay area of California in 1987. I began my career in Real Estate in the title insurance industry back in the late 80's which provided me with a solid foundation of knowledge in escrow, title insurance, sales and notary services. I developed my sales skills, earned my Real Estate license and worked within the Bay Area real estate community for 12 years as a title insurance sales representative. In 1999 I began my Real Estate career helping people buy, sell or invest in real estate within the Bay Area. Helping people own a home is a privilege and for many, it is a wealth-building investment. I enjoy navigating my clients through the real estate transaction process and helping them discover their ideal home. A home is where you can share your joys, laughter, sorrows, cook in your own kitchen, plant a garden and share time with the most important people in your life. My primary focus is to utilize my negotiating skills to obtain the highest possible price for my sellers and the best possible price for my buyers. I currently reside and have my office in Morgan Hill, California however I do provide real estate service for clients from all over Silicon Valley including San Jose, Morgan Hill, San Martin, Gilroy, Hollister, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Cupertino, and Saratoga. My favorite thing to do when I'm not selling homes is spent with my adult children. I also enjoy hiking in the many beautiful county parks of Morgan Hill, San Martin, and Gilroy, cooking, reading and live music.
Testimonial from Tim & Karen Franks, August 2016:
"Kathryn Walker was highly recommended from a good friend and Kathryn did not disappoint. Kathryn's extensive knowledge of the market guided us through the process, everything from setting the sale price to staging our home. Not only did she help us sell our home but also helped us find a new home. She worked with us every step of the way and we always felt that someone was looking out for us. Thank you, Kathryn."
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
