I have worked with buyers and sellers in the Madison area full-time for eight years. I found my way into the industry during the purchase of my first house. My buyer’s agent encouraged me to consider getting licensed and pursuing this as a career, as he recognized that I’d be really good at what he does. I have a background in nonprofit direct service work with vulnerable populations and found the skillset very transferrable. With real estate, I’ve found deep meaning helping clients transition from one stage of life to another, which is so often the reason people move: growing families, job change, empty nests, retirement, loss of a loved one. I am uniquely skilled at working with clients through all aspects of these major life changes.
When I work with sellers and buyers, my role is as a project manager for all aspects of the purchase and sale. There are a myriad of different moving parts that all happen at a rapid pace and it is my role to stay ten steps ahead to have the experience be as smooth and simple for my clients as possible. Clients value my organization, communication and education skills, warmth and patience, precision, attention to detail, and calm but in-charge demeanor.
I have lived on both east and west sides of Madison and know the metro area well. I currently live with my dog Sebastian on the Westside of Madison adjacent to cooperatively owned neighborhood forest where I take daily walks through the woods and Owen Conservancy. I love to camp (all seasons, bring on the cold!), spend time with friends and family, explore new places, bike to yoga, cross country ski, and read.
What Clients Say
“Kate was a wonderful agent. We particularly appreciated her superb customer service, detailed knowledge, kindness, warm personality, and availability. We value honesty, meeting us where we were at (regarding income and interest), and efficiency; Kate was respectful of these values. Our home purchase required quick negotiation, which Kate handled impressively. I have referred her to a number of friends in the Madison area and will continue to do so. Though home-buying is stressful and confusing, Kate was always a few steps ahead ready to clarify and help us prepare. We have stayed in touch with Kate and continue to be appreciative of her respectfulness and professionalism. We’re happy in our home and will continue to work with Kate, if needed, in the future.”
“We really enjoyed working with Kate. She has deep knowledge of the Madison market and was very helpful in determining negotiating strategies on our home purchase. Very friendly and easy to work with.”
“We could not have asked for a better agent than Kate. She was very responsive and flexible, and helped us find the perfect home. In this competitive market, she helped us write a good offer that was accepted right away. Throughout the process her knowledge and expertise helped us foresee problems and avoid any major issues. Even when we had some last minute problems arose, she helped us problem solve and get us in our house on time. I highly recommend her!!!”
“Great communicator, very timely with responses, enjoys working with first time home buyers so no question is too stupid. Got to know my family and had a good idea of what we were looking for. A pleasure to work with, don’t plan on buying another home any time soon but would definitely use her again.”

Her knowledge of the local real estate climate was top notch and she maneuvered us through the process with confidence. Very happy with Kate and would recommend to anyone.”
“From our very first meeting with Kate we knew immediately that we had found the right person to work with. She made the seemingly impossible task of simultaneously buying and selling our home extremely easy. Her communication throughout every step of the process was amazing.”
“We worked with Kate on both the buying and selling side. She always strove to make the process as smooth as possible for us. We especially appreciated how available, prompt and responsive she was when we had questions or needed to discuss anything. Her calm and positive attitude put us at ease and made what is normally a very stressful experience more fun and enjoyable.”
“Kate has helped me to purchase and sell 2 homes in the last 6 years. Kate is an absolute joy to work with as she has a lovely combination of skills and traits that I value. Kate is uber-responsive and proactive with raising issues I need to consider. She is also personified sunshine which really helped me through the occasional stressful moments of real estate transacting. I was in strong, competent, yet gentle, hands with Kate. Would recommend her without reservation.”
