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!
‟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. Since then, they have been wonderful at keeping in touch and have provided us with numerous recommendations and advice. They are truly great people and we will definitely be recommending them to anyone looking to buy in the area” Read More ▾
