You make your client the most important factor in the real estate transaction. You don’t waver on your sense of integrity or moral values.  You won’t mislead a client to make a deal - you are completely honest. Your client can trust you without hesitation.  You are extremely hard working and give your client your all. Your extensive knowledge about the island is very useful and necessary for non- islanders. In a nutshell, you’re probably one of the best agents in this country.
All the very best to you Katherine.
Kind regards,
Brenda

You definitely went above and beyond for Jesse and I and made purchasing our first home easy.
You were very easy to work with, and really listened and understood what we were looking for. At no point did we feel pressure and we felt you were very honest and trustworthy.
Once purchasing the home you went the extra mile and checked in on our house for us until we were able to move in, which was more than you needed to do. In all honesty cannot find a weakness or feel like anything went wrong.

You are a naturally positive person with a great sense of humour (although sometimes you have no idea just how funny you are because you’re not the person/people listening to your stories!) You are very well connected within the community because you are so involved in so many community-oriented things – from the church to breakfasts (at the complex) to volunteering at elections polling stations. I’ve never known you to say no to anyone or organization. You are also very hard-working and dedicated to everything you take on.

It was so easy working with Katherine.   Her knowledge and and experience coupled with being an islander help navigate and pave the way through many situations resulting in many successes.  Her “get it done” attitude and “if I don’t know I will find out” perseverance makes her a realtor that works hard for her clients.

I love how honest and genuine you are!  You also have a heart to help, and are always trying your best.  I love how patient you were with us as you knew I had to have a house in the sub division.  You knew the house would fit us well and it sure does!
We could ask you any questions and you were so willing to help.  You walked us through the process right to the end.  Thank you for being such a joy in the sale and purchase of our house.  We recommend you to anyone we know looking.  
Thank God for your life.  He is using you in this job to help others!

Well let's say I've tried 3-4 other realtors and none of them was able to get any interest in the lots I had. I hired you and from last year to this year we had a lot of interest in the lots we even sold one of them....you know the area quite well and the pricing that would sell.
You are quick to get the communications with me going when it came to offers and recommendations. I would have to say you were very personable and easy going which helps.

... you came off as sincere and were working for me not yourself. People tend to assume that the agent knows the law and the various ins and outs of a transaction- not always the case. Trust is more difficult and the agents that I have met arrive with plastic smiles and various stories to get that offer. You are quite different and any contact is invariably positive. Maybe it's a PEI thing  but your friendship always comes off as sincere...

The first time you took me two view I think it was just a single property when I was visiting PEI. In that short interaction it wasn't hard to tell that you were interested in finding the right place for me, and not just make a sale and move onto the next one. The next trip that a friend and I came to the island, the three of us spent 8 hours driving all over the island viewing different places. Low and behold it was the last house we visited that day that was the one. Unfortunately the fight was just starting. With unexpected issues with my financing, and having to get a few extensions. I remember one evening, you called too see if I had heard from my mortgage broker if I was approved, and he was on vacation. You wanted his number to make a call, and try and figure out whats going on. It wasn't hard to tell you actually cared. It was a pleasure going through the purchasing process with you. You took a lot of stress out of the process.

Quick sale

I was very pleased with Katherine's results in selling my Dad's house in Kensington - it sold quite quickly, with multiple offers received, at close to the asking price, and the sale went very smoothly. Recommended.

Long-Distance Clients

Katharine is a gem, in so many ways.  She provided listings for our long-distance viewing over several months that allowed us to prepare a list of properties to view.  She very efficiently arranged for us to visit many properties in a short time and managed negotiations for our purchase, and even did the final walk-through, on our behalf.  Well beyond the call of duty, she watched over our new property in the gap between closing and our moving in.  I would recommend Katharine in a heartbeat; she’s super-pleasant, charming, caring, generous, very knowledgeable, a hard worker with a great sense of humour and always a great story.  I hope now to also count her as a real friend.

Downsizing

I would recommend Katherine  as a real estate agent.  Having never listed or sold a house I was thankful for the way she

explained the whole process and answered all my questions.  She was very helpful in every way and sold our house.  The sale went smoothly and closed just when we needed it to.

Thank you Katherine !!!

International Buyers

Katherine has been invaluable in my family's search for a home on wonderful PEI. I've been so impressed by Katherine's knowledge of the island and the market. Above all, she has been willing to go out of the way to help me and my family in our search. We are not Canadians and live in Europe so we have needed a lot of hand holding. Katherine has certainly gone above and beyond the call of duty in taking us through the process of buying and building on PEI. She has recommended builders, sent us links to government property information websites, advised on accommodation and dining on PEI during our stays there and much more. 

Looking for a property, even on PEI, is not a stress free activity. But being in the good hands of Katherine has made a huge difference to the experience. As a buyer or a seller, Katherine would be top of my list of real estate agents.

Thanks,

Nancy

Both Debbie and I were very happy with the way you showed the house and other houses. We felt a sense of security with you that there were no hidden surprises.

As first time home owners, you made this step an easy one as you were very understanding and let us know what all had to be done in preparation for closing.

The whole situation was executed excellent.

Thanks,

Shawn
