I am originally from northern NJ. I attended Lafayette college where I met Kevin on the crew team and earned a B.A. degree in English Literature. I studied abroad in Austria and developed a lifelong appreciation for classically beautiful architecture.
Kevin and I are long time residents of the Main Line, and I have loved raising our children here as the area is rich in educational opportunities at all levels and filled with wonderful parks, playgrounds, libraries, and children’s classes and activities.
Traditionally my jobs have centered around sales, from selling fudge in the summer to working in independent school admissions; so, my transition to the real estate world was a natural one! In addition to the sales aspect of our work, I enjoy working with Kevin on his property renovation projects and marvel at the ability to transform an ordinary house into a beautiful home!
‟My husband and I were relocating to the Philadelphia area and had very little knowledge of the area or time to see multiple properties. Kate was very patient and efficient in learning what was important to us and proactively partnering with us to find the perfect home. She was patient and thorough and acted with our best interest at every step of p … rocess. We would highly recommend her to busy professionals who expect an expert in real estate and outstanding customer service. On top of her great skillls, she is fun to work with. We are very much enjoying our home” Read More ▾
‟We met Kate and her husband, Kevin, at an open house in Lower Merion two years ago. Kate's caring and compassionate personality immediately connected with us. After a short chat over some spilled hot cider (it was the fall), she committed to finding the right home for our family. Over the past two years, Kate and Kevin have been with us every step … of the way to find our home. Kate really took the time to understand exactly what we wanted in the first home for our family, went above and beyond to find it, and delivered on her commitment. When it came time to place an offer and work through all the negotiations, Kate was right by our side advocating on our behalf. Kate's network of realty associates (home inspector, mortgage brokers, etc.) were incredibly helpful and extremely customer service focused. They answered all our questions - no matter the time of day or the topic. If you are looking for a home in the Lower Merion area, Kate Livesey is definitely the realtor you want on your side” Read More ▾

‟Kate and Kevin were absolutely wonderful to work with during our first home-buying experience. Our good friends recently used Kevin and Kate when purchasing a home on the main line and recommended them very highly. We couldn’t agree more with their recommendation! We were so pleased with the services they provided when it was our turn to buy a home … . When we found a house that we loved (which also happened to be very popular with other potential buyers), Kate and Kevin dropped their weekend plans to show us the property and to help us put together a competitive offer. They were available to answer a million questions and provided ample guidance during what could have been a very stressful situation! It truly felt like a good friend or family member was helping us throughout the process.In addition, when we were concerned about the potential cost of new windows on our home, they had their friend who was a contractor look at our house and give us advice on how to fix the windows as cost-effectively as possible.

They are truly great people and we will definitely be recommending them to anyone looking to buy in the area” Read More ▾
‟We recently completed a move from the city to suburbs. As long time urban dwellers, the suburban market was a complete mystery. Fortunately, we found Kate who helped us define what we wanted, where we wanted to be and how to negotiate once we located the home we ultimately bought.
