Some of Our Client Testimonials

"Kathleen was with us every step of the way. From identifying the house we bought as a prime candidate to closing and moving in. Her guidance and recommendations as we made numerous tough decisions regarding both buying our new home and selling our previous home was invaluable and helped us keep the stress level as low as possible! She is my first call for any sort of real estate activity!" D. Thompson

"We have closed 4 transactions with the Waelde Team and they are the best! Superior professionalism, excellent knowledge of the market and great strategy for getting to a closed deal." Al & Virginia Crowe

"Kathleen Waelde was very attentive to our needs, listened to our concerns and did not pressure us to buy a home that did not fit our criteria. She also sold our prior home and worked well with the buyer's agent. She and Larry spent time touring other homes in our neighborhood so as to obtain the best possible listing price for our home. Kathleen is without question, the best realtor we have ever dealt with. She definitely gets things done." Don and Carol Holmes
