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 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 ▾

‟I first contacted Kate Livesey after seeing a home that caught my interest. After our first conversation I was immediately struck by Kate's graciousness and willingness to help and felt as if I had known her as a good friend for a long time.

‟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 ▾
