Kathy is the consummate professional who advised us on how best to position & prepare our home for sale to achieve an above listing price…the highest price of any sold in our neighborhood.Her insights, pulse on the market & Kathy’s high touch and continual communication through the preparation, marketing and offer stage truly guided us on every step toward a successful sale. In all of our experience at buying and selling homes, this, by far, was the best in professional service and in outcome. Kathy is exceptional. And we can not recommended her highly enough!!!

Kathy is so knowledgeable and understanding through a crazy process. She is honest about each home and is trying to help the client - not just make a sale. She was very in touch with the market and always ready to show us anything and everything! So happy Kathy helped us find our first amazing home!

Kathy and her associate Holly Cox were phenomenal to work with. They went out of their way to make the home buying process as painless as possible and they were incredibly attentive to our personal desires and respected our likes/dislikes when searching for our home. When it came time to make an offer, Kathy knew just what to do to make sure ours was the winner. And then Kathy was a huge advocate for us after receiving inspection results. Following acceptance of our offer, Kathy and Holly went above and beyond to help get estimates for improvements, to visit the house to take measurements and pictures for us, and to generally ensure a smooth transition upon closing. They are both super friendly, incredibly professional and a true joy to work with. We have our dream home thanks to them. I highly recommend you contact them!

She is wonderful to work with. Always kept us up to date with new listings, and during the closing process kept us in the loop on what we needed to do and our deadlines. But also remained genuinely invested in us getting exactly what we wanted. Perfect experience as first time home buyers.

It was an absolute joy to work with Kathy. Her professionalism, preparation and follow-through were a 10 out of 10, and her knowledge of every detail of the home sale (and buying) process gave us tremendous comfort - and a great outcome! If you are in the Atlanta real estate market, we highly recommend working with Kathy!

"We were referred to Kathy by neighbors a couple of months before we intended to list our home and simultaneously purchase our next home. Kathy could not have handled our pre-market needs more efficiently or expertly, from price evaluation to listing and showings, she was always hands-on and available. Every question, need, and desire we had for our next home was met as she walked us through a heated market with her calm and unhurried demeanor. We knew every step of the way that she was working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that every one of our goals was met. Kathy is an outstanding professional."

"Kathy is very professional, easy to work with and has great knowledge about the industry. She works extremely hard and is a great asset to her company."

As young first time homebuyers we walked into this process empty minded. Despite the fact that the market is crazy, Kathy walked with us step by step. She ensured us that she would help us find the perfect home, and she did just that. When we doubted ourselves Kathy was a ring away from putting our worries at ease. Kathy’s knowledge and suggestions led us to being able to narrow our search down to realize what home we really were envisioning. Considering her great work led me to want to consider real estate I would say she is A++. Kathy was the absolute best and we would recommend her over and over again. MM

Kathy is a very knowledgeable realtor but best of all she is a caring and helpful person. There is nothing you can ask that she does not respond to and gets back to you as quickly as possible. As a client that did not know Atlanta well she could not have been more helpful in answering all our questions.I would highly recommend Kathy because she is very highly qualified to address all your concerns.

Kathy has incredible market knowledge and experience that translates to maximizing return on property investment. She listed a neighboring home that drove the selling prices up in the community significantly above market. Her preparation of comparable market analysis, professionalism in representing her clients with a very personable feel made the difference in a transactional experience to an enjoyable one! She selected the highest quality vendor for professional pictures that accurately represented our home. She organized every detail to optimize our home's potential in beauty. She fought for a bargaining agreement that was balanced and fair and gave us coaching on what to expect from the entire process of selling.

I have worked with Kathy Ghirardini for the purchases and sales of 2 homes. Both times she was amazing to work with, very responsive, knowledgeable of the market and wanted to make sure that I was happy with the transactions. I would work with Kathy again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

Kathy was AMAZING! So knowledgeable of every aspect of the move. We had several issues that she handled smoothly and with such calm that we never worried. She gave us so much time during the search process and made us feel special. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND KATHY!

Kathy was incredible in helping us to buy our home! As a first time home-buyer, she did a great job of helping to inform us of the home buying process while not overwhelming us with information. Kathy did a great job of keeping us informed throughout the process and continually bringing new homes to our attention as they were listed. When we found a house that we were interested in, Kathy made sure that we fully knew what we were buying. For the house that we ended up buying, our sellers used some atypical negotiation strategies and Kathy helped us navigate that process smoothly. We plan to work with Kathy again in the future when we move again one day!

As a first time homebuyer, Kathy made the process seamless. I would 100% recommend her as your go-to realtor for the Buckhead/Atlanta area. Not only did Kathy give me great advice regarding location and pricing, she took it upon herself to do the leg work necessary for my closing. I am glad that I had Kathy and highly recommend anyone who is in the market to buy or sell, to go through Kathy. I will be using her expertise the next time I buy or sell a home!

It was such a pleasure working with Kathy! Our entire process went so smoothly. The guidance and suggestions were right on and the entire process from listing to closing was efficient and worry free. Kathy is so dedicated, friendly, and professional. She never left any questions unanswered, and responded to all of our needs promptly. Her knowledge of the Atlanta Real Estate market is exceptional! We got an incredible price for our house and were amazed at how quickly it sold! We most definitely recommend Kathy to sell or help you purchase a home! She is an expert in her field and we were so lucky to have her as our Realtor!

We had an amazing experience working with Kathy to buy our new home. We had very particular tastes and it took us over two years to find the right home. Kathy was incredibly patient with us and spent a lot of time showing us properties all over town. She knows the Atlanta real estate market inside and out and made sure we considered every detail of our purchase. When we finally found the right home, we were in a competitive bid situation that we would have lost if Kathy had not made the deal happen for us. We are so grateful for her help and would strongly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

Kathy Ghirardini represented me as both a seller and a buyer. Her dedication, thoroughness, and attention to detail were not to be matched. I am convinced she is the reason why my two teenagers and I are living where we are today! She was very committed to making sure I was informed and comfortable with the process every step of the way. Kathy was such a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to everyone I know!

We have worked with Kathy Ghirardini both as a seller and a buyer and we could not have been happier with both transactions. Not only is she one of the friendliest people in town, she is incredibly professional, pays very close attention to detail, makes sure all bases are covered, and does everything in a very timely and efficient manner. She knows the Atlanta market better than anyone and can help you navigate a very complex environment. I would strongly encourage anyone looking to buy or sell to have a conversation with her, and feel free to have her connect you with us if you would like a more in depth understanding of why we like her so much.
