About me

She is licensed in both NY and CT and specializes in the communities of Bedford, Pound Ridge, Armonk, Brewster, Katonah, Mt.

If you are looking for a home in the North/South Salem, Pound Ridge or Bedford or broader northern westchester area do yourself a favor and call Katherine. Katherine recently helped us find our home in North Salem in a very competitive market. We started our search with no real sense for the area or strong view of what town would be the best fit- from the start she took time to listen to our needs and my many ‘dealbreakers’ and she quickly helped us zero in on a few towns that met our requirements. Katherine is from the area and because of that she knows the towns and inventory well- any time a listing came up she would text us immediately with additional color. More importantly, she would quickly figure out whether or not a house was worth seeing- which saved us a ton of time given we are a 90 min drive from our target area. She did more than a dozen video walk through previews for us- recording on her iPhone and sending us the video so we could get a sense for the property and whether it was worth the trip to see. In the end her amazing network and contacts led us to find an off-market listing that has exceeded our expectations in every way. Not only did we wind up with a great house, but we genuinely enjoyed working with Katherine. She is a fun and friendly person and we feel like we’ve made our first friend in the area. Thank you Katherine!!"

Katherine was an absolute dream agent. She was there to handle everything that one would want. She helped me feel comfortable about my decision to sell, priced my home well, staged and marketed my home and ultimately negotiated and landed a very good price. Her expertise was invaluable and I give her my highest recommendation!

My husband and I just purchased our first home and could not be happier with having worked with Katherine during the process. We met her at an open house and were immediately made comfortable by her relaxed attitude and knowledgeable approach. What we liked most about working with her is that she guided us and was super helpful through the home search without being pushy or 'sales-sy' - something that we had encountered with agents in the past. She is incredibly responsive and when we were in the later stages of the process, she recommended a great inspector and attorney for the closing. Even after our home purchase was complete, she continues to be a great resource. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home and will be asking for her help again when my parents move to the area.
