Katie made the transaction of this property as easy and simple as possible.
She took charge and made sure that all our needs were met in a very
responsive way. Her uncanny ability to negotiate any obstacle or hurdle was
top notch and always had her clients best interest in mind. With that I would
be happy to work with Katie at any point in time in the future.

Katie was wonderful! Made the usual stressful experience fun and exciting. I
have had other experiences and never imagined having such a positive
change of pace when I went with Katie. Katie keeps it professional while
maintaining a fun attitude. Along with being very knowledgeable about real
estate, Katie truly cares about you. Katie is my first recommendation to
anyone for all real estate needs.

Our experience with Katie was exceptional! She is extremely knowledgeable.
We found her on the internet. From the moment she answered the phone
we knew she was the right Realtor for us. Katie has been very patient with us
in our search for a new home, understanding and helpful. She was always
flexible when we were setting up appointments to view the homes. Katie was
on hand at all times to answer all our questions, not matter how silly. We feel
she went above and beyond her duties to help us. I would definitely
recommend her and use her in the future.

Katie was wonderful. Her knowledge and expertise helped me sell my house
in 3 days and purchase another at the same time. She recommended a
house inspector (House Masters) who was great and came to my home to let
in a furnace inspector and a mold remediator. She came back twice later to
let in the mold people . Katie really impressed me with her knowledge and
was always had my back. We had several problems clearing the title and Kate
was always working to help smoothe them out using all of her contacts. I

cannot say enough good things about her and would recommend her without hesitation.

I have been with Katie for about three years. She has been great, from finding me a rental in a short notice and then finding us our first home. Now we are looking for our second home and i would only want to do it with her.

EXCELLENT REALTOR! Are you looking to buy a home? Then, you must stop
and contact Katie . She is phenomenal!! She is patient, kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and has a warm personality. By the time I closed on my home, she was like one of the family. You must consider Katie for your home search.

Katie is amazing! I met her 7 years ago when I purchased my home. She went above
and beyond for me. Took pictures and videos outside, in the snow for me as I was
currently deployed. She’s spunky, kind, incredibly honest and upfront. Seriously
everything you’d want in an agent. I appreciated her hard work so much that when it
was time to sell, she’s the first person I called. Yet again, working with her was a breeze
and selling my home was a piece of cake. Thank you Katie!

Katie was wonderful to work with. She worked around my work schedule and she

happen. I now have the home of my dreams and it is due in large part to Katie Bak. I
can't say enough good things about my experience with Katie. I highly recommend Katie
