We have known Kathy for years. More acquaintances than friends, but I would call her a friend in a heartbeat. Working with her is like working with family and we think a lot of family. She will always tell you the truth and work for everyone’s best interest, buyer and seller. I would recommend her to everyone I know.

Kathy made our home buying experience during the COVID 19 pandemic as easy as humanly possible. Her expertise and knowledge of the market was absolutely critical in finding our first home. Kathy is an incredibly hard worker and was tireless in her efforts to help us find the perfect home, within our budget and in the area that we chose. She is a consummate professional, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. Kathy is the best in the business and I am so thankful she represented my wife and I in our home search. 5 stars!

We are repeat clients of Kathy's. She sold our last two houses both within a day above price. She also has provided priceless advice and assisted us on the purchase of our last two homes, even helping us move and assisting with organizing the kitchen. We consider Kathy a valuable, knowledgeable professional and more importantly, a friend. We highly recommend Kathy.

Kathy Smith handled our home search and purchase from start to finish. Any questions we had were answered to our satisfaction; and we had plenty since we hadn't purchased a home for decades. We would use her again without question. She went above and beyond what was required.

If there were a description of the perfect realtor, it would be modeled after Kathy Smith. She has a great work ethic and is very knowledgeable. She stays current about the industry and local, regional, & national trends. Actually she has written several guidelines for promoting sales and techniques that are being used in realty seminars.

She has access to professional photography, photos & videos, plus innovative advertising. She will present the property in the best possible way for maximum exposure.

Kathy is progressive and thinks out of the box. While being respectful and empathetic, she listens to her client’s wants, needs, and concerns. Taking that into consideration, she will provide a realistic outline of what you can expect. She doesn’t have a crystal ball, but she is most always spot on with her advice.

Kathy is very tactful in dealing with her clients and prospective buyers but always truthful. To sellers, she will make suggestions where she feels it may help increase the value and selling price. To buyers, she will be well versed in the house(s) she is showing, even if it is not her listing. Kathy is persistent but not pushy.

Kathy is very versed in negations to help you obtain your best deal whether you are her seller or her buyer.

If needed, she is helpful with suggestions for different loans, insurance, remedies, dealing with utilities, closing, and a plethora of other things.

On a personal note, Kathy is very caring person, going above & beyond with her clients. She is so successful because she takes her clients to heart and gives the very best she can for each situation.

We would highly recommend Kathy Smith, NextHome Experience, for selling your property or if you are looking to buy…....

Kathy came through on every level. She not only took care of the basics from multiple showings through inspections, remedies, and closing, but also she was insightful and smart in helping us to make challenging time-sensitive choices several times during the process. Further, when problems arose, Kathy was able to come up with innovative solutions until something worked and moved things forward. She's also trustworthy, warm, and dependable. We would work with her again, for sure.

Kathy was an amazing individual and realtor to walk us through the home buying process. As first time homebuyers, the tasks appeared daunting. However, Kathy was there every step of the way to answer questions and provide advice. We went into the process looking for a home. Not only did we gain a home, we also gained a friend. I wouldn’t want to use any other realtor.

Kathy did a wonderful job on selling my mom's condo. Kathy is quick to respond. She really tried to make every offer work for us. The process went smooth.
We closed on the sell of the condo recently and everyone was happy.

Thank YOU so much Kathy!

Working with Kathy was a real pleasure. She made suggestions to make our condominium show better. She kept us updated along the way. She worked hard to sell our place quickly at a very fair price.

Kathy was absolutely delightful to work with! The sale of our condo was fast and very easy for us. She is incredibly knowledgeable and always available for questions at a moment's notice. I will call her the next time we need a realtor.

Kathy Smith took great care of us on the short notice sale of an existing home and purchase of an acreage home in the local area! Her years of experience and knowledge of the area's sales market where invaluable. She knows everybody, which was helpful in working with other realtors, finding companies to perform repairs and do home inspectors. She recommended a loan agent at a local bank who was simply outstanding and offered great terms. As a team, we got a VA loan approved in 30 days and closed two houses on a very tight timeline. Hire Kathy...you won't be sorry you did.

Kathy was very knowledgeable of the real estate market and gave excellent advice and insight. She made suggestions for upgrades that directly led to the sale of my home. Kathy also helped me purchase my new home. She coordinated the sale and purchase, so that I could move directly from one home to another, which was very important to me. I couldn't have asked for a better experience selling my home and purchasing a new one.

Kathy Smith is a highly experienced realtor that listened to ever concern and desire I had in my search for the perfect new home. She was willing and able to work around my work schedule in order to show me a variety of properties. I was impressed with her helpful insight and follow through on questions that arose throughout the entire process. Kathy is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable in her field.

I had an incredible experience with Kathy Smith as my realtor. She exceeded my expectations and I know she will do the same for you.

Kathy is a family friend and we were so glad to be working with her. Her attention to detail and willingness to answer our every question was exactly what we needed as first time home buyers. She went above and beyond for us, showing us several homes, juggling our ever changing wish list and never once becoming discouraged in the tough market. She knew she would find the perfect home for us and she did! We couldn't have been happier to work with Kathy and love our new home!

We have known Kathy for about ten years. We listed our house and many acres with her and it was not an easy property as there were several ways it could be listed to appeal to a wide range of buyers. Kathy helped us to avert several mistakes and skillfully solved a last minute problem just before closing that could have cost us the sale. She is extremely knowledgeable and provided us with valid and up to date information whenever needed. It was a unique sale and she made it work for both the buyer and us. As a result we have become friends with the buyer.

Kathy then found us the perfect house we needed for that time in our lives. She negotiated a fair contract for us and the seller. Everyone was happy. She also guided us through an unusual loan. When we decided to sell that house, she quickly found us a buyer, and again everyone was happy.

We think Kathy is the top, she is fair, tells it like it is, sincerely desires to help, goes way out of her way to accomplish what you ask, she has unusually good integrity and in general is just fun to be around.

Currently she is looking for our next perfect home.

This was the second house that Kathy assisted me with, and when I buy my third she will be by my side once again! Kathy is very knowledgeable within the industry and therefore it was easy to trust her input and recommendations. Kathy is currently assisting us in our new build. This was her recommendation from the start, but being as indecisive as I am, we ventured to the current inventory side first.... only to end up right where she originally recommended us!

As we looked at the different types of upgrades Kathy gave us great advice on various options that will not only set my house apart from others, but that will essential for future resale. I know in a market like today there are a lot of agents out there that are willing to assist you, but if your looking for the complete package, Kathy as your agent is the only way to go!

Kathy, as always, thank you so much for your assistance, you have truly become more than just an agent to our family. Your the best and I appreciate you so much for all of your help!

I started searching for my first home, with Kathy Smith, about a year and a half ago. She was patient with me throughout the entire process. She was constantly sending new listings that fit my criteria. I was picky. She evolved with my constant changing of criteria and found me the perfect home. She went out of her way to educate me as we looked at different homes. She also was extremely helpful once we had made an offer. She helped me save money and was in contact with the seller throughout. I would highly recommend Kathy to any person interested in buying or selling a home whether they are experienced or a first time buyer. She was great and thanks to her I am living in the perfect first house!!!!
