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!
‟We thought we would save money and time by renting our property ourselves. After lots of stress and bad choices, we decided to go with the Livesey Group. What a wonderful difference! Kate and Kevin made it easy. Their guidance helped us prepare our rental property and helped us create negotiating terms that were competitive. Their assistance helped … us find solid tenants quickly. They are fair and come through with everything they say. Given our rental experience with the Livesey Group, they are definitely #1 on our list should we decide to sell or buy property, too. Much thanks to the Livesey Group for making this huge part of our lives easier” Read More ▾
‟Kate and Kevin just helped me find my first home and I just moved in 2 weeks ago. They were a pleasure to work with all around. I'm a single mom with a busy work schedule and Kate and Kevin were very accommodating to my needs and made themselves available anytime I needed them too. They listened to me and understood what I was looking for and this … was evident in the properties they showed me. I felt supported throughout the process as if I was searching for a home with family. I would work with them again in the future and would recommend them to anyone. I really lucked out” 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. She was patient, responsive and always a pleasure to be with to the … point that when we did finally settle, our only regret was that we wouldn't be seeing her as often! Whether you are a relatively novice home buyer (like us), a seller or a frequent home purchaser (I guess you are out there, somewhere), we can not recommend Kate highly enough as a real estate professional and a genuinely lovely person” Read More ▾
‟My house shopping was a bit disjointed due to so many factors. When I found a place of interest, I was contacted by Kate.

‟We were moving from New Hampshire to be closer to our family and when our home sold in NH we had to move quickly. Our daughter got to know Kate and Kevin as the sellers agent on their home purchase last year. They were most helpful and handled all aspects of the transaction in a very competent way. We therefore were confident that these same skills … would work for us and they did. They have an excellent knowledge of the mainline communities and have had extensive experience working with trades to upgrade and renovate properties. As lawyers they also quickly and flawlessly organized closing details for us when we were still in NH. We are very happy living in our current Villanova home only two miles from grandchildren. Kate and Kevin are both highly competent brokers and a real pleasure to work with. We highly recommend them to anyone considering a real estate transaction in the mainline area” 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 ▾

‟My husband and I can not say enough about Kate and Kevin, they are very knowledgeable about the market specially main line area, professional, extremely patient, trustworthy and so friendly. When they understood what we want, they never let us miss visiting any of the places matched our criteria. They made the stressful process of finding our house … so smooth and pleasant, we have never felt we are pushed and they really helped us like a member of their family.
