Kate was so wonderful to work with! She made the selling process so easy and handled everything for me with my busy work schedule. She went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly throughout the entire process! I would recommend her to all of my family and friends selling homes in the Atlanta area!!

Kate was AWESOME to work with. She represented us on both the sell and buy side. Transacting on homes is, by nature, stressful and hectic, but Kate did an amazing job reducing stress and alleviating the burden on us. She had our house (sell side) under contract in one day. With limited inventory on the buyside, Kate brought us properties that we would never have found otherwise.....ultimately finding us our new home. She seamlessly navigated a very complex negotiation and we were ultimately able to close on our great home. Additionally, Kate was fantastic in recommending vendors and bringing to attention details that we would have otherwise missed. We strongly recommend Kate to anyone in this market and are very grateful that we partnered with her through the process.

Kate made the entire buying process so easy for our family! She found the perfect home for us through her connections and then helped us easily navigate the negotiations, inspections, and closing. She is the hardest worker and is always available to help, no detail seemed too small. I would recommend Kate to anyone, even the pickiest of buyers. I can't say enough great things about her work ethic and attitude!

Kate McKenzie went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. While never "pushy" she remained highly dedicated to our needs throughout the entire process. She worked closely with us to ensure she understood all of our buyer criteria (it was a lengthy list). We were moving from out of state (during the pandemic I might add) so it was certainly a challenging time for our family to begin a house hunt with such a limited housing supply on the market. Kate worked quickly and diligently to show us a number of homes. Her knowledge of the Atlanta market (traffic, schools, neighborhoods) was invaluable as we were able to rule out many houses that otherwise appeared "picture perfect" online. Narrowing down our list, she was incredibly helpful in assisting us with property level due diligence to uncover any "hidden issues" such as easements, flood plains, etc that could have greatly impacted our big purchase decision years down the line. Through Kate's network, we ultimately found a home that had not even hit the market yet. Kate helped us negotiate a fair price and ensured a seamless closing process. We cannot recommend her enough!

Kate was a pleasure to work with. She researched the market extensively to determine the best price and helped us get the house ready. She followed up after each showing for feedback and we were able to get top dollar for our property. But what really set her was her willingness to research complex issues that came up with our house, develop solutions and follow up to ensure the sale went through. Overall great experience and would highly recommend her.

I've worked with a lot of realtors over the years and Kate is the ONLY one that I would highly recommend. We were introduced to Kate after a poor experience with another realtor - she immediately came in with a vision to sell the house. Her strength was that she was extremely hardworking and proactive to get the deal done. Her communication skills were great and was always VERY responsive. She really knows the Atlanta market and has a strong social media presence. Kate was great to talk through negotiation strategy and we always felt like she had our best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Kate.

From Day 1, Kate understood what we were looking for in a home. This allowed her to tailor our home buying process to our needs and requirements. Her expertise in the market, together with her ability to convey information effectively, made the home-buying process as user-friendly and seamless as possible. We are grateful for Kate's responsiveness, work-ethic, and flexibility through the entire process--from open houses through closing.

Kate McKenzie was a complete joy to work with! She is professional, knowledgeable, and responsive, but doesn't everyone want to work with someone that they like and 'click' with? Most importantly, Kate is trustworthy. She gave us all of the facts and advice, and then allowed us to make the decision that was right for us. Kate brought so much knowledge to the table and was able to point out items that were in our blind spot, so we had as much information up front. I highly recommend working with Kate, and look forward to working with her again in the future if/when the time comes!

Kate is a real estate expert, there was not a question we asked that she did not know! On top of being knowledgeable, she was friendly and engaging which made the home buying process enjoyable instead of the hellscape I thought it was going to be. My favorite part of working with Kate is that she wasn't a saleswoman, she was an advocate. She did not try to be slick and pressure us into anything, for example we did not want to get a survey done and she explained to me both sides of the issue, and let us make our own decision. If you get the opportunity to work with Kate, do it, you'll be happier.

Kate helped my wife and I sell our home and purchase a new one. She was very patient with us as we were exploring a new area in town and we didn't have the local knowledge she has. Kate excelled in this area and showed us many beautiful neighborhoods within our price range. Once we selected a home, she was great at working with the seller's agent to help solidify a deal and managed the back end of the transaction beyond expectations. We met Kate through a referral and would be happy to refer her to any of our friends who are looking to buy or sell.

Kate helped us find a house when we were pregnant with our third and living w two other kids in our 2 bedroom condo in the city! She easily could have moved us into one of the first houses we saw bc I was ready to just move! But she helped us stay focused on what we told her we wanted. She was candid when she didn’t think a house fit us and was specific why. Bc of her marketing and patience she found us an unlisted house in one of our target neighborhoods. She worked w the seller and helped us come to good terms. I have recommended her to close friends and originally heard about her and Kelly from another friend. After the move she helped us sell our condo as well and bc I had just had my third baby at that time she even helped coordinating meeting handymen for us, checking in on things at the condo, etc. she really ensured that buying a home was a good experience.

We cannot thank Kate enough for all of the advice, hard work, negotiations, and expertise that she offered us during our house buying process. Kate was so knowledgeable, and really helped guide us to make the best decisions and obtain the best price. Being first time home buyers, we were a little intimidated going into this process, but Kate communicated with us every step of the way, and was always a step ahead of any question we had. Would recommend Kate to anyone! You will be so pleased with her work ethic and dedication!

We bought and sold our home with Kate and she was very personable and professional throughout the entire process. She would go the extra mile to make sure the open house was perfect and was open minded when we were unsure in our home search. She brings a local knowledge of the area which is very helpful and made the process much less stressful for us!

Kate helped my wife and I buy our first home. She was great to work with, flexible around our schedule (we lived in CA and were buying a home in GA), and provided great insight and advice throughout the process. Working with Kate was a pleasure!
