    Business Philosophy

    Homes are an important support for a happy life. I love bringing people the joy of finding a place they love.

    I work with both buyers and sellers and know that home-buying and home- selling are not only important investment decisions but intensely personal life decisions that will impact you on many levels for years to come. Whether you are buying or selling, I want to take the time to listen and find out what matters to you the most, and then do my best to accomplish your home aspirations. I won't rest until you are happy and your home goals achieved.

    Whether networking off-market, hand-writing notes or even door-knocking to find the right house for you, or coordinating design, remodel and staging decisions and pitching in with elbow grease to make your home shine for the market, it matters to me that I add exceptional support and value to your buying/selling experience and capitalize on all of my capacities and all available avenues to create a successful and happy outcome for you. I want you to feel so happy with your real estate experience that you are excited to refer me to your friends and family.

    Personal Background

    Sixteen years of structured finance taught me to enjoy challenges while staying calm, optimistic, and innovative in high-stress, high-stakes situations. It taught me to think creatively to find fresh winning strategies and to enjoy and value collaboration and mutual success. It taught me stamina and also taught me to relish doing my best in order to excel and give outstanding service to those with whom I work.

    When I left finance in 2004, I wanted to be more connected to things that matter the most to me: home, personal contact, service, creativity, friendship, community, and family in all its forms. Real Estate was a perfect fit.

    I feel lucky to have been a resident of Marin since the age of two and grateful to have worked and lived in Mill Valley for the last twenty.

    During my personal time, I love to write and am currently workshopping (and pitching) my kid novel "My Sister's Brain". I also enjoy yoga, cooking and walking the trails of Marin and am presently having fun trying to learn to play the ukulele.


    "Katie has completely changed my perspective on how critically valuable a real estate agent can be in the purchase of a home. She has deep experience in finance in addition to her extensive experience in Marin real estate. She's built and owned incredible homes in Marin and knows the area intimately. Her attention to detail is exquisite. She's patient, insanely smart, and closely partners with her clients to ensure success. After this last experience I know... she will be our family's partner in real estate for life.

    Katie is a professional par excellence. We have been working on and off with her over a few years' time period looking in various areas at a variety of property types (vacation, in-laws, primary home). In other words, we were a bit difficult. She never seemed surprised by our next idea. She warmly and enthusiastically went along with us. Once we were in contract on both the sale of our home and on the purchase of a new one, she was steadfast in her pursuit to make the deals close. When a contractor was not responding, she got the needed reply. We were amazed by her tenacity all the while doing it with kindness and a smile. her background in banking proves very useful in making deals happen.
