"Thank you. From the moment I met you I knew your energy and motivation and knowledge was going to be a successful mix for selling my house and my wife agreed instantly. You you diligently perused us to get the listing. That was also a good sign. So we went with you. Well you proved we were right ! We Listed, then 18 hours after it was on the market we got our price thank you. Then there were several issues to figure out before settlement and you did that successfully. Now we have settled and are VERRY HAPPY! THANK YOU KATE!"

  -Yvonne & Kenneth Miller, Client

"We worked with Kate on three real estate transactions. She's courteous, a go-getter, and really knows her stuff. She helped us when things got complicated. I would highly recommend her!!"

  -C. & B. Talbott, Downingtown, Client

"Kate was very knowledge in our home buying process. Since we recently moved to this state she was very helpful in explaining what things we should be looking out for. She made sure that all steps required in the buying process were taken care of."

  -Beth & Michael Targioni, Landenberg, Client

"Personal, friendly, loyal and knowledgeable sums it up! The very best! Listened to all our preferences, and took the time to help qualify each property with us so we knew ahead of time. Made the most of our time together, followed up and through in every aspect including financing and closing."

  -Kaye & Bob Jeronowitz, West Chester Borough, Client

"Kate was a pleasure to work with. We were first time homebuyers and therefore had a lot of questions and needed that extra reassurance. Kate made us so comfortable and aided us in any manner we needed. She answered any and all questions we had, and then some. We, from the beginning, felt we were in good hands. When it came to communication she was always quick to respond and kept us updated/informed through the entire process. Many people have told me that buying a house is a stressful process. I have to say, working with Kate made it a smooth and pleasurable experience. I have and will recommend her to friends and family!"

  -D. & F. Mawson, Philadelphia and Carlisle, Client

"Kate was amazing to work with! The market was very competitive and she was able to schedule showings any day of the week during my schedule. We did same day meetings. When it came to making offers and negotiations, Kate was so helpful!"

  -Jackie Waller & Kevin Kindig, West Chester Borough, Client

"We are so grateful that we have found Kate Bailey to list our home In Downingtown !!! Kate had the home under contract less than a week !! She established excellent communication with us, she is confident and very knowledgeable about construction , kept us informed and communicated throughout the process. We highly recommend Kate Bailey for your real estate needs. Working with Kate was a PLEASURE!!!! We are so THANKFULL!!!"

  -- Anna & Bruno Mercuri, Downingtown, Client

"Kate worked with us as a buyer's agent. She was very patient with our unfamiliarity with buying in the US and extremely responsive to queries and in providing updates. She was forthright in her opinions about properties and negotiations when asked (which I valued). She helped us navigate a tricky purchase with multiple stages of negotiations with constant good humor and positivity. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate to other buyers and sellers, she is a very skilled professional and I feel fortunate that she was representing us through this purchase."

  -Emma & Matthew Snyder, Chester Springs, Client

"We can't put into words how thankful we were to meet Kate when we did. The first home we were under contract with fell through and we were having communication problems with our previous realtors. A month later we met Kate and our experience with her was absolutely amazing ! We looked at several houses and finally found a home that we loved . Kate was very helpful and was always optimistic even when we weren't. She would work around our schedules and always responded to us when we had questions. We truly believe Kate went the extra mile and we thank you so much Kate! We honestly can't thank you enough. Kate is very knowledgeable and definitely educated us on the home buying process ! We recommend Kate to anyone looking to Buy or Sell their house!"

  -LaNiece Edmondson, Highland Township, Client

"...She was always on top of things, e-mailing us asking what houses we wanted to look at and when, and letting us know that she was available anytime we were ready. Her attention to detail is impressive. Kate is always willing to take the time you need to explain things or clarify any uncertainties-no matter what time of day! We can't recommend her enough. You'll be in good hands with Kate! Thank you, Kate!"

  -Angela & Michael Nolan, West Chester, Client

"Our experience buying and selling was a very challenging one due to the very unique properties on both the buying and selling side of things. Kate will be by your side every step of the way. She is professional and confident, yet makes the entire process as laid back as possible. Kate was awesome throughout our entire home selling/buying process. We had met with several realtors before meeting with Kate, and within the first few minutes of meeting her, we knew we'd be in good hands! She spent a lot of time with us during that initial meeting explaining everything in detail from what to expect when buying and selling to her own personal business ethics. We felt so comfortable listing our house with her. The whole sale transaction was seamless from start to finish-even with a few hiccups along the way from our buyers end that she handled with ease. We are also working with Kate as buyers now. "

  -Angela & Michael Nolan, West Chester, Client

"...Kate offered sound advice regarding counteroffers and negotiating the final sale price. I feel we received top-dollar for my mother’s home. I am currently looking for a new home and then will be selling my current residence and will continue to work with Kate. If you are considering selling or buying, I strongly suggest, at minimum, scheduling a consult with her – she will not disappoint!"

  -Tim Schwer, Downingtown, Client

"Simply put, Kate is a consummate professional. She knows the real estate industry inside and out. I had the pleasure to work with her this past summer/fall 2017, when tasked with the responsibility of liquidating my mother’s estate. Kate is an excellent communicator, which is critical in today’s world of marketing. She followed up with every showing and undoubtedly would get feedback from the buyer’s agent every time. Upon reaching a final sales agreement, Kate was on top of every detail, the schedule of events, inspections, etc. I was kept informed every step of the way and would receive almost instant responses to any question I had. Kate even made herself available to meet inspectors and contractors at the property, when my schedule wouldn’t allow, which was a tremendous help. Being a local girl, she knows this market well. We had a few offers before accepting what was near our asking price. "

  -Malorie & Eric Hubert, Spring City, Client

"Ms. Kate Bailey is an Outstanding Real Estate professional. We came to know her through a professional referral. Even before our first conference call she provided us excellent research info/tactics for our consideration. Then, at the call she explained her process that made us feel comfortable to go with her contract. She provided excellent suggestions to make our property look different and appealing. Because of her pro-active and hard work, she got us a qualified buyer within 15 days of listing! She also supported us throughout the closing process. Without her "can do attitude" we would not have been able to sell our house. Ms. Kate can "talk the talk and walk the walk" and we strongly recommend her case!!"

  -Dr. K. Namboodiri, Chester Springs, Client

"Kate got the job done, quickly, efficiently and painlessly. She was a pleasure to work with and was very professional and extremely helpful even with items that she did not need to be helpful with. Our house was on the market for about 6 months with 0 offers. We switched realtors to work with Kate and the house was under contract within one month. From there, she guided us through the sale process, negotiated effectively and saw the entire process through. She even helped tie up loose ends such as allocation of furniture and fixtures. We highly recommend Kate and will certainly use her again for any future home purchases or sales. "

  -A. Aggarwal, Esq., Chester Springs, Client

"...I do not know how she did it, but she fought for the win and convinced the sellers that my offer is the one they should accept. I did not have a mortgage commitment yet and there was some risk associated with accepting my offer over others but through her outstanding negotiating and trust building, they accepted. My boys and I love our new home and I am so thankful I had Kate as my realtor."

  -Donna Viso, West Chester, Client

"First things first, Kate is a rock star realtor. Her determination, work ethic, intelligence, compassion, patience, ability to listen... sets her apart. I was working with Kate during a transitional time of my life and I had so many different emotions tied to this new start. I had a bit of fear wrapped up into it as well because this was the first time I would be purchasing a home and doing it alone. Sometimes I would get cold feet and pull back, other times I would ask her to see something that wouldn't even fit the bill for what I was looking for... Through it all she remained understanding. In addition to being a realtor, she was a friend and a cheerleader. She would fill me with the encouragement I needed to ultimately land me into the perfect house for my two sons and I. In a seller's market, the inventory was low and the competition between buyers was high. "

  -Donna Viso, West Chester, Client

"...Amazed by how smoothly everything went, I cannot sing her praises loud enough. In fact, if I ever have to sell/buy a property again, I will call on Kate again. I have absolutely NO REGRETS!"

  -D. & F. Mawson, Philadelphia and Carlisle, Client

"Befuddled. Intimidated. Uncertain. Most of us, myself included, feel this way when we buy or sell a home. Finding the perfect realtor is down right scary. Kate came recommended to my husband and me by friends who had a very positive experience with her. We started the process one year prior to actually moving. All along the way Kate gave us helpful advice. Patiently waiting for the right time, Kate worked us through the sale of our 100-plus-year old home. The home was listed and within 5 days we had 5 offers and entered into an agreement of sale. When that first offer fell through, she had us in a second and final agreement of sale in hours. I was astonished completely by her know-how. She is diligent, dependable and no- nonsense. Not only did she help with the sale of our property, but she also traveled miles with us to find the perfect home in Carlisle. "

  -D. & F. Mawson, Philadelphia and Carlisle, Client

"...When it came time to work on the mortgage paperwork, Kate stayed involved and in touch to help answer questions(even while on vacation), even though the process was largely driven by the mortgage company. We really appreciated Kate's guidance and straightforward approach as we navigated buying our first home."

  -Emily & Patrick Mortimer, Exton, Client

"Working with Kate made the process of buying our first home so much easier. We met Kate at an open house and were really glad she provided her card and suggested working with us. Kate did a great job of explaining the home buying process to us and convincing us that it was in our interest to work with a buyer's agent. She was respectful of our time and pace(especially when we put the search on pause for a couple of weeks when our baby was born) but when we got serious, she was attentive and really ensured that we stayed on track. She never pushed us beyond our financial comfort zone and as we toured homes together she did a great job of listening to what worked for us and tailoring the listings accordingly. When we found the home we eventually purchased, Kate did a great job of putting the home in perspective compared to other properties we were considering to clarify our choice. "

  -Emily & Patrick Mortimer, Exton, Client

"My wife and I called Kate and offered her a challenge; sell our house quickly because we had already placed an offer on a new house and needed to get our house on the market as soon as possible. Kate was over at our house the following evening to walk us through the process and provide some ideas on things we could do to get our house ready to be shown. We held an open house within 36 hours of being on the market and she was able to bring in over 25 people to view the house. Kate did a great job of working with two stressed out home sellers who wanted nothing more than to get an offer on our house. We were under contract in only 11 days!!! She was a great help through all of the different inspections and closing process and was a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend Kate to anyone looking to buy or sell their home and will be sure to refer her to friends in the future."

  -Ashley & Chris Miller, Marsh Harbour, Downingtown, Client

"We were so very lucky to have met Kate at an open house. Kate brings all the insider real estate knowledge to the table, but also provides great construction and design advice that you wouldn't normally get from another realtor. Kate was always prompt in responding to our questions and encouraged us to ask away - very helpful for first time buyers. We were most impressed with Kate's efforts to negotiate our purchase and going to extra mile to ensure we got the deal we wanted. Her humor and personality is exactly what you want from your representative during this stressful but exciting process. Thank you for all you do, Kate!"

  -Ashley & James Froebe, Spring City, Client

"Kate Bailey is a very informative real estate agent and one who knows how to prepare and stage your home for maximum visual effect for a prospective buyer. Kate had many open houses which drew in potential home owners. I would definitely recommend Kate as your realtor."

  -Maria & Garry Norton, West Caln Township, Client

"...We had multiple offers immediately, and sold our home to a great, young couple who truly appreciated all of the time and money we spent on the house through the years. Now, we are enjoying our new, yet old farmhouse in Chester County, and excited to begin expansion of the home for our family. This wouldn't be possible without the guidance and enthusiasm of Kate. I have, and will continue to recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home. "

  -Jody & Jesse Lewis, Downingtown, Client

"After watching Kate's success for about twelve months, I knew my wife and I were going to partner with her for the sale of our home. We had been in our home for more than ten years, and as our family grew, we knew we needed to expand our square footage. We scheduled our introductory meeting with Kate, and of course, she showed up 15 minutes early. When she sat down at our kitchen table, she made the meeting all about us and made sure she fully understood our goals and expectations. She also arrived fully-prepared with easy to understand reports and personal research on our neighborhood. Immediately, my wife was comfortable and I knew we were working with a professional. Kate coached us on the current market conditions, as well as how to best-prepare our home for a short period of time on the market with maximum potential profit -- She delivered! "

  -Jody & Jesse Lewis, Downingtown, Client

"...She was always upfront with her opinion which helped me make the best decisions. Once the house was sold she even put me in good hands with another realtor, making my move to Tennessee as smooth as possible. When I move back to Pennsylvania next year I'm definitely going to ask Kate to help me find my next house!"

  -Matthew Kerwood, Downingtown, Client

"Kate is my realtor. She sold my house in Downingtown and I will absolutely use her in the future. She was always there to help along the way. I first interviewed three realtors and selected Kate. She seemed to care the most and even offered to help me prepare the house. I got the sense with most of the realtors that they would just put some pictures on the internet and that would be the last time I heard from them. Not so with Kate. First she showed me how to properly stage the house. Then she held an open house. By the time she was ready to have the second open house I already had an offer, but the fact that she even planned on having a second so soon made me realize that she doesn't just sit back and let the people find the house. She makes the extra effort to get as many people to the house as she can. As we went through the process of paperwork and other steps she helped me to understand what was happening and what was coming next."

  -Matthew Kerwood, Downingtown, Client

"I had the pleasure of working with Kate Bailey of Coldwell Banker Preferred of Exton as my realtor during the search for my new home. As a first time home buyer I was inexperienced when it came to the processes and details that went into the search and subsequent purchase of a home. Kate made this difficult and stressful time a lot easier for me by explaining every detail and possible scenario that we could have encountered during our search. By going over these things beforehand I was not surprised during the search and it ended up making my purchase a very smooth and relatively easy process. Kate was the first realtor I spoke with at the beginning of the search for my new home. Therefore I do not have any experience in dealing with other realtors. However, after my experience with her I do not believe you will find a more professional and dedicated realtor out there and I would recommend Kate to any friend or colleague who is in the market to buy or sell a home."

  -Joshua Stewart, West Chester, Client

"Kate Bailey of Coldwell Banker Preferred was highly recommended to us by a fellow parishioner. We used her for both the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new home. Kate’s knowledge and expertise in positioning our house for sale in a Fall Market as well has her design background in staging the house and property resulted in an offer and sales agreement in four days. Her network of contacts was helpful in getting compliance items completed and passed and her company made settlement very smooth. On the other side, Kate was most helpful using her knowledge of new construction to guide us and ask the right questions when dealing with the builders of our new home. Although we did most of the packing and moving ourselves, she was readily available if we needed help.We would recommend Kate as your Realtor!"

  -Karen & Ronald Meacham, Downingtown, Client

"I've already been telling co-workers and church friends of your expertise and professionalism. As important as that is I think it equally important for a homeowner to have realistic expectations of the current market and be willing to trust the realtor's judgment. Tom and I had several realtors in mind when we were getting ready to sell. However, after our first meeting with you we didn't bother calling anyone else. We really felt you had all the qualities we needed in a realtor and much more! Kate, you have proven to be a competent, trustworthy, enthusiastic and hard-working realtor! Your professional staging and organizational skills are an asset to anyone selling a home. You know what needs to happen to sell a home quickly and work with the homeowner to make it happen in a timely fashion. Your availability to communicate with us day or night made this a less stressful process. Thank you very much!"

  -Jayne & Thomas Wolf, Downingtown, Client

"...Kate is genuine and trustworthy and was able to make everything mutually agreeable between me and the sellers. I worked with another real estate agent for over a year in my search for a home before meeting Kate and did not see the same results at all. I highly recommend Kate Bailey to anyone in need of a hard-working, knowledgeable, and reliable realtor!"

  -Jaime Perez, Downingtown, Client

"From the moment I met Kate at an open house, I knew she would be someone great to work with. Her energy and positive attitude made her very easy to talk to and she answered all of my questions honestly. Within a few days of meeting Kate, I bought a house! As a first time home buyer, Kate really broke down the entire process for me and walked me through everything step-by-step. Any time I was frustrated with my mortgage lender or wire transfers, a quick phone call to Kate would calm me down and reassure me. She is very prompt at returning emails and texts and thus very easy to work with. Kate worked as a dual agent for me (as a home buyer) and for the sellers of my property. I was initially skeptical of a realtor trying to work for two different clients at the same time in regards to the same property, but in the end, I would highly recommend it! There were fewer people in the "middle" to go through and the process was very seamless. "

  -Jaime Perez, Downingtown, Client

"My girlfriend and I recently used Kate Bailey in helping us find a new home. It’s never easy going through the process of finding that one and only place that is right for you and you alone, but Kate made it feel as easy as anybody ever could. Kate genuinely had OUR best interest at heart, never pushy, always the professional, and always available. Once she knew what we were looking for, Kate found exactly what we wanted. Thank you Kate for all your hard work and dedication, you made us feel as though we were family and not merely clients. You Rock!!!"

  -Amanda Herr & Michael Finnerty, Client

"We couldn't be more pleased with Kate's service and attention to detail. We are new to the US and she really took time to help us select the right home for our family in an unfamiliar market. We had a wonderful experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kate!"

  -Donna & David O'Brien, Landenberg, Client

"...Despite the process taking five months, Kate kept in constant contact and even sent our Sales Representative weekly emails checking the status of the property on our behalf. She was on our side every step of the way- from signing the Agreement of Sale, to attending multiple inspections, and even helping us resolve issues with the builder a month after we had moved in. In addition to being a powerhouse realtor, Kate is an absolute pleasure to be around. She has a warm and caring personality and kept us laughing and positive throughout the entire experience. We highly recommend her services!"

  -Apryl & Matthew Klein, Chester Springs, Client

"From the minute my husband and I met Kate at an Open House we knew instantly we wanted to hire her as our realtor to sell our current home and purchase another. Kate was meticulous and patient in answering all of our questions and concerns, and as first-time home sellers, we found it incredibly helpful. Kate is truly dedicated to her career and treats her clients like family. We received her personal attention almost on a daily basis. She was always available for questions and made us feel like we were her only clients. She made sure we understood everything that was happening and provided valuable advice and guidance without being pushy. She went above and beyond the call of duty to get our house sold, hosting Open Houses almost every weekend, and her efforts paid off, as our home sold within 30 days of being listed. We weren’t entirely sure which direction we wanted to go when purchasing our new home, and after much deliberation with Kate’s help, we decided to build. "

  -Apryl & Matthew Klein, Chester Springs, Client

"We highly recommend Kate Bailey for your real estate needs! Kate managed the sale of 2 properties and the purchase of 1 property simultaneously. Challenges were many. Obstacles seemed huge to us as sellers/purchasers. Kate's coaching style helped us to persevere and weather the rocky roads. As a realtor she is part of a family that is widely involved in the housing industry. She is knowledgeable about construction, which can assist the future buyer early on in their purchasing decisions. As a selling realtor, she sold a property for us that, due to its’ smaller size and being part of an HOA community, has been difficult to sell previously. Due to the small size, the market for the house was limited to first time home buyers or downsizing families. She knew where to find those people. She was on top of everyone involved in the transactions to insure business was conducted on time. She assisted the "other side" when they ran into problems or overlooked details!"

  -C. & B. Talbott, Downingtown, Client

"...Kate kept me informed and communicated throughout the process. I had already moved 500 miles away to Maine so Kate handled the 'on the ground' needs of the house. Kate knowledgeably handled the negotiations of the offer and the settlement. She was so well organized and kept me informed. Even the Title Company woman we worked with mentioned how terrific Kate was to work with. Kate is a Pro! The result speaks for itself. Kate had my home under contract 16 days after listing it and she did not lower the price! I am so thankful to Kate!!!"

  -Lisa Graves, Phoenixville, Client

"I am so grateful that I found Kate Bailey to list and SELL my home!! My home in Phoenixville had been on the market for 5 months when I decided I needed to switch realtors. Kate had the home under contract 16 days after taking over the listing!!! We did not lower the price! Before we listed the home, Kate took a lot of time to learn every nook and cranny inside and out of the house. She did the research work on the neighborhood and surrounding vicinity. She established excellent communication with us. I am impressed with so many aspects of Kate. She is confident and dynamic. You will know that as soon as you meet her! She grew up in a real estate family and has an intuition that comes from that. She is very knowledgeable of construction and the mechanics of houses. Kate is an artist and very visual. She added a few touches to my home that made the highlights pop. Kate worked hard to sell my home. She proactively reached out to her vast network and let them know about my home. "

  -Lisa Graves, Phoenixville, Client

"Working with Kate is everything you would expect from a consummate professional. She does what she says she is going to do, on the timeline she agrees to, and without fuss. She is firm and direct without being pushy or overbearing. I would be pleased to work with her again."

  -Dara Zuckernick, West Chester, Client
