California natives are a rare find! I was born on the California Coast, and raised in the foothills of Tahoe. Growing up, I spent many Saturdays and Sundays with my Father, a retired Realtor, greeting guests at open houses and listening to talk about their hopes and dreams for a new place to call home. It was such an inspiring experience early on… I knew I wanted to become a Realtor one day and follow in my Dad’s footsteps.
I loved those moments, and they are memories that have stuck with me throughout the years. As soon as I was 18, I wanted to get my real estate license but was given wise advice…get real-life experience, and get a little older so that people could trust me with such a big decision. Off to college where I studied English with a focus on Shakespeare.
During my 24+ years in the Real Estate Industry, I have been a real estate professional: I hold a California License but started with a Washington license. I have been a Real Estate Instructor, a Marketing Manager for a Title and Escrow company, and have worked as a Mortgage Broker and Account Manager for a Wholesale Lender.
I am a certified Global Luxury Realtor with Coldwell Banker. Qualification for the certification is at a high standard; requires having sales of homes at or above luxury value over 2 years. I have been working diligently and thoughtfully to maintain this standard for years.
For me being a certified Global Luxury realtor is more than home value, whether a high-end luxury home, condo, or manufactured home: Global Luxury is a level of service I provide to ALL my clients. My most gratifying moments are working one-on-one with her clients, listening to their needs, and helping them to reach their goals.

Without Katy, I'm certain we would not have been successful in finding the perfect home for us. At the outset we didn't have a good understanding of what we were looking for. Katy walked us through a large number of properties, asked what we liked and didn't like about each one. She listened closely to both of us and helped us refine our search and identify interesting properties as they came on the market. When the ideal property for us came on the market, Katy swiftly put together a solid offer. Throughout the entire process Katy was upbeat and helpful walking us through the every aspect of the process, answering all our questions and addressing a...— Marilyn
Katy was excellent. She negotiated for us with really no compromise through the entire process from negotiating the price, contingencies and even the final clean up before closing. She is also well connected in the area and helped us with finding us a great homeowners insurance agent, title company, contractor and contacts in the county. We would highly recommend her for buying or selling.— Rich V.
Katy was on top of all phases of the sale of my home and I highly recommend her to guide you through the process of selling or buying your property.
