Milton Real Estate - Katherine Barnett, Broker

Katherine is the most ethical and professional real estate professional we have ever dealt with. She set a well-researched and fair price for our home, provided everything we needed to be successful (amazing aerial photos, staging, cleaning, etc) and then was a calm yet highly effective negotiator. Throughout the process, we were always well informed and always felt that she was truly "on our side". Katherine very much exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her.

We could not have picked a better Realtor!!

Our decision to move did not come lightly since it is, if not, the biggest investment of our lives.  We knew we needed someone with the experience; market knowledge and who we were compatible with to guide us through this process.  We interviewed a few realtors in the area and briefly considered the commission free options.

After our very first meeting with Katherine, we had a great sense of comfort with her and knew we had found the realtor with the qualities we were looking for.  In a matter of 2 weeks after meeting Katherine we were able to find and purchase our “Dream Home”.  Katherine got us a great deal, made sure to thoroughly review the purchase agreement with us, arrange the home inspection and follow up on all defects identified for resolution.

Next came the supposed hard part of preparing our house for sale but with Katherine’s team it could not have been any easier.  The teams of stagers that Katherine has assembled are simply awesome.  Their recommended changes to give our house the “wow” factor and appeal to potential buyers were dead on!  To top it off Katherine’s photographer took the most professional and stunning photos of our house.  Once our house was posted for sale, 3 days and 30 plus showings later we were done!!  We had multiple offers, maximized the value on our house and ended up selling for over our asking price.

During the purchase and sale of our homes, Katherine’s professionalism, attention to detail, negotiating skills, knowledge and openness were on full display at all times.

This could have been a very stressful time for our young family but with Katherine’s comforting and supportive manner it was anything but.  We definitely could not have done this without all of Katherine’s hard work, dedication and incredible team of professionals.  If anyone is looking for a realtor you do not have to look any further and we would definitely recommend her in a heartbeat!

We both would now like to take this opportunity to thank you in regards to the sale of our home. When we initially decided to sell our home, we tried selling privately. After being on the market for 50 days we were tired of dealing with unethical realtors, inexperienced private buyers, and unreasonable offers.
We reluctantly decided to interview realtors and immediately we were impressed with your presentation. Within one day you had prepared an entire package tailored for us, which demonstrated your professionalism, attentiveness, and experience. We were 100% confident that you were the realtor we wanted to represent us in the sale of our home, and you did not let us down. You helped sell our home fast at 100% of our asking price.
Throughout the entire process your calm and confident nature was exactly what we needed, as we were very stressed out during this experience. Your attentiveness was beyond our expectations; you made us feel like we were your only clients even though we knew that we weren’t.
We’ve been letting everyone know how fantastic you are. We definitely would recommend your services to anyone who is either buying or selling their home. We also welcome you to use us as a reference for anyone who is thinking about hiring you as their realtor.
Once again, we can’t thank you enough for your professionalism, commitment, attentiveness, patience, and kindness.

With much appreciation, Cynthia and Nelson

Katherine,
It has been such an absolute pleasure having you present us in our buying and selling real estate process. We know a number of real estate agents/brokers in town, but since you sold our neighbour’s property for over asking so quickly, you seemed the obvious choice of who to talk to.
You made us feel very comfortable with you and we had great confidence in your abilities. You were very patient through our spousal ‘discussions’.
I think we probably came out about $40,000 ahead of where we easily could have been because you negotiated both deals so well – getting our new home for lower than asking, including some key features. And selling ours in a day for full asking price (which was higher than anticipated).
There are a lot of do-it-yourself real estate options today, but I know that 70% of them end up in court and I’m too busy and not knowledgeable enough to go that route. Besides the fact of the market knowledge you bring, the appropriate pricing, the people who were already looking at our type of property and so on!
Your full service, awesome staging services included, being a text away at anytime, speak highly of your professionalism. It was fantastic working with you!
Best Regards,

Denise

Hi Katherine,

A note to send you a big thank you for making the sale of my Mom’s condo such a pleasant and stress-free experience.

From your impressive promotion of her property to your efficient handling of all the fine details of the sale, while always keeping me updated, all were executed with such friendly professionalism.

“It really was the most perfect sale…amazingly quick with no problems.”

I am singing your praises and truly appreciate everything.

Katherine and her team are second to none. Bringing several years of real estate experience in Milton specifically, Katherine offers exceptional customer service, detailed industry analysis and access to her team of specialists. She made selling our home a seamless process, which resulted in our house being sold in less than one day. In a time where private sales have become very popular, it’s refreshing to know that Realtors who truly care about their clients still exist.

Dear Katherine,
We are writing this letter of recommendation to share our gratitude and express our appreciation for the wonderful job you did in selling our Townhome and assisting us in purchasing our new home. In such a trying time within the economy, we knew that our choice of a Realtor was of utmost importance and we were extremely pleased with your dedication and service.
We were convinced, from our first meeting with you, that our decision to engage your services was the right one. Your professionalism, knowledge of the market, suggestions and marketing strategies all contributed to our overall feeling of confidence and peace of mind.
From the start you had us featured on your website, as promised, and your photographs and marketing materials were superior to others in the area. You were diligent in providing feedback from comments obtained from these visitors and we really appreciated all of the updates and how you explained everything to us in a language that we could understand.
Finding someone willing to take the time to listen to our needs, while keeping our interests in mind meant a great deal to us. It was wonderful working with a Realtor, such as you Katherine, who is so committed to maintaining the highest possible standards and someone who is passionate about what she does for her clients. Your insight, guidance and recommendations on pricing strategies, strengths and weaknesses of potential homes, knowledge of neighbourhood, familiarity on quality of construction and finishings were all very valuable in our thinking.
We were pleased how effective you were in handling the negotiations given the fact that there were counter offers; but you kept the environment positive and relaxed and we reached a mutually acceptable agreement that we are very happy with.
It’s hard to believe our house sold for its full asking price and in only 6 days. It is truly a testament of your sound understanding of the market, dedication and professionalism. We were amazed that it all happened so quickly and so smoothly.
We can’t thank you enough for all your efforts! We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends or anyone who may be looking to sell their property in the future. The experience was truly a pleasurable one.
Sincerely,
Kelly and Adam F

Dear Katherine,
Julie and I wanted to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks for all that you and your team did for us. The sale of our home could not have been any easier. We listened to your advice, followed your direction and within a few days a sold sign was on our lawn. Your professionalism and down to earth personality was a blessing and we thank you for all that you did for us. Please pass on our thanks to Rita and Tamara who did a great job prepping our house for the big sale. We would like to keep your sold sign on our lawn until we move, if that’s ok. All the best for the spring season and we look forward to recommending you in the future.
Yours Truly,
Damian and Julie L

The presentation and marketing of our home was far superior to other listings, which ensured us selling our home in below-market-average timeframe. A true blessing given our two little ones at home!

Thank you, Katherine. It has been our pleasure getting to know you during the sale of our home. We look forward to keeping in touch during the years to come!

All our best,

Dear Katherine,

We are writing this letter to thank you for all your hard work in selling our home. From the very beginning, you responded very quickly to all our inquiries and never failed to provide us with weekly updates on market conditions and feedback from viewings and open houses.

It was your professionalism, knowledge and experience in the real estate industry that made us choose you as our realtor and we are very glad that we did, given the tough market conditions we are in.

Thank you again for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Marianne Manas and Arlan Calingasan
Milton, ON

We knew that you were the person we wanted to take charge in selling our home. You were well educated in the housing market and very professional from the beginning!

Katherine, the service you provided us with was simply next to none! From the staging expert you sent to our home, to the amazing photographer, the process in preparing our home for today’s competitive market soon changed from a daunting task to a rather interesting and enjoyable experience even with our three kids!

You worked as a team with us, listening to our concerns and answering any questions we had about the whole process. You were prompt in returning any e-mails or phone messages we left you. With your positive attitude and non threatening personality we have no doubt that you will continue to be successful in real estate for many years.

From this day forward, we will be referring you to our family members, friends or people in general with whom we may come into contact. We truly hope that you are around in 30 years when we decide to sell our new home and down size in preparation for our retirement!

We thank you for the late nights you spent in our home especially the night we sold…after only being on the market for a day!

We wish you the very best of luck and hope that our paths will cross again.

But most importantly we were extremely pleased with her results; our home sold quickly and for the price we wanted. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who demands the very best in service.

Thank you for making an overwhelming experience less overwhelming and even enjoyable. Your spirit and kindness will long be remembered and I’m telling the world to buy or sell through you.

I would highly recommend Katherine Barnett as either a listing agent or an agent representing purchasers. Having used Katherine as both; representing me as a purchaser and as a seller 3 years later, I can attest to her skills in either capacity.

From our first phone call through to closing the deal, the level of service she provided was excellent.

The time Katherine invested with me in fact finding to narrow down my search, personally hunting down homes she felt would meet my needs and continuous follow up to ascertain that we were on the right path all contributed to an overall exceptional experience.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Katherine to any friends or relatives in need of a realtor.

We were trying to sell our house privately and we met Katherine.
We reluctantly decided to list and sold for more than we thought was possible in a very short time! She did advertising, open houses and broochures and when the offer came in we were very happy.

We would recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their house. She was always available and professional.
