We are extremely grateful for all the time and effort spent by Kathe during our quest to find a home. Kathe did a remarkable job understanding our needs and assisting us in finding the perfect home for our family.
Kathe exemplifies everything that a Realtor should be. She arrived at our home armed with years of data that she, personally, had collected specific to our neighborhood for years of sales and re-sales of the same house. She asked us to really showcase the home with more neutral tones and decor to entice the younger buyers who prefer beige and gray (our tastes run to warm, traditional hues). We followed her advice. She then did the unthinkable, she raised the price from the prior listing. Within weeks of listing, we had one very well qualified offer for almost full asking price with another in the wings. Not only is Kathe professional but she is kind and a great listener. I wish we hadn’t moved because I feel like we would have become good friends!
Kathe is a true expert in her field. Without her, we truly would not have been successful in purchasing our dream home. Kathe knows the Main Line, and the surrounding area, inside and out, and really guides you through the home buying process. Her years of experience benefited us greatly when faced with a competitive bid situation. Her guidance was spot on and we are so appreciative for all she did to help us throughout the process.
Our family contacted Kathe O’Donovan after two years of fruitless listings with other agents. She made regular visits to suggest cost-effective ways of improving the attractiveness of the property. She took it upon herself to recommend contractors for a few essential repairs and oversee their work. There was never a problem getting in touch with her with our concerns and questions. Kathe was a godsend to our family in consummating a major undertaking.
Kathe helped us to find the exact home we wanted to purchase. She also sold our home in a short amount of time. We were scaling down and she led us through the process, showing us many options.
Kathe was a complete pleasure to work with when selling our house.I felt that she understood the best features of my home, how to market it, and the right price range. I had a signed agreement at the end of the first week. Any bumps in the road to settlement (there are always some) were professionally and quickly handled. It was great to work with a real professional.
I was given Kathe’s name by a neighbor after some frustration with another realtor with whom we had been working. Within a few minutes of our first phone conversation, I realized how knowledgeable she was about the area and that she would be a good fit for us. Kathe helped us buy our new home and sell our old home. In both instances, we feel like we were well represented and got the best outcomes possible. She made the whole process as easy as it could possibly be and we are so grateful!
Kathe O’Donovan is the best! She helped me find the perfect home! She was with me every step of the way and I felt confident with her knowledge, professionalism and guidance. I am so grateful for everything she did for us!
Kathe did so much to make the sale of our home happen. It was wonderful dealing with her, and should we ever find ourselves moving back to the area, we will be calling Kathe!
Kathe O’Donovan is an outstanding real estate agent. She is honest, dedicated, never discouraged and ready to go way beyond her job description to make things happen. Kathe is truly a can-do, intelligent, hard-work dream partner.
Our agent, Kathe O’Donovan, was excellent in all respects. She exceeded our high expectations. Her colleagues were also helpful and professional.
Kathe went above and beyond! We have our house because of her. She understood what we were looking for and she got it for us.
I don’t know where the next job will be – I’m hoping it’s back to Philadelphia – but I’ll depend on Advantage Main Line to help us find another great home.
I appreciated not only Kathe’s attention to detail and follow-up, but also her consideration, tact, and sympathy in dealing with emotional issues that, at least for us, went along with these events. I know it must have sometimes been difficult for her, but she handled it well, both as a professional and a friend.
Kathe and her team made everything so easy. We always felt they had our best interests at heart.
I really enjoyed working with Kathe – she was the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with and I would recommend her to anyone.
