As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
“We used Kathleen Fine to buy our first home in Perryhall this spring. And if there is one word to describe the experience it was “outstanding”. We went through a couple of realtors before choosing Kathleen. The moment we talked to her, it felt like she is the person and we didn’t look any further. She understood our requirements and was at it right away! She knows the process really well, she would give tips and suggestions that you were definitely not even thinking about, Kathleen was very detailed and she takes full control of the process so that this huge burden can be off your shoulder. During the process we thought her negotiating skills were great and on many occasions she went out of her way to ensure the process doesn’t derail and goes as smoothly for her clients as possible. Kathleen is not your regular realtor, she loves her job, she is extremely professional and she takes full ownership of the property search and closing process for her clients. Kathleen definitely stands out as the best realtor MD has to offer!Her knowledge of the settlement process, Lending requirements, HOA/Tax insurance etc helps the client understand where the process is at and what to expect next. I use to get settlement documents, lending expenses etc reviewed by her and I would always learn something new. There were occasions she found discrepancies (higher cost of closing etc) and took the initiative to settle with the given party for her clients (and I find it a great asset as she knows the process and will be in a better position to safeguard her clients interests). Kathleen has the patience to answer all your questions in detail and sometimes spends hours and over multiple days to ensure the client understands the process. Kathleen made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should).Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to buy a home really paid off - we got the property we loved, at a lower price than the market (with additional upgrades) and were able to close the deal in a rather shorter time frame given to us by the seller. All in all it couldn’t have gone any smoother-thanks to Kathleen for making it possible. I will highly recommend Kathleen to anyone buying/selling a property in MD. She is a true professional and a genuinely nice person. Great job and thank you again for everything!” Ahmed Bilal 5/13/19
“My wife and I had been interviewing Realtor agents for about 2 weeks when we met Kathleen Fine. We both knew right away from her energy and preparation that she was going to be proactive to get this house in front of the right qualified buyers even before the house was officially listed for sale using her knowledge of the latest marketing trends and technologies. Kathleen had our house sold after the 2nd day on the market and for more than the listed price! She was receptive and quick to respond to our questions. We highly recommend Kathleen Fine be your Real Estate Professional!” Brian New 7/4/19
“Kathleen listed our house in Lutherville and was an absolute joy to work with! From day one, she brought a deep knowledge of the local market and encouraged us to price our house competitively, but fair. She presented several local comps that substantiated the asking price and in the end we went under contract in less than 48 hours for full asking price! She was extremely responsive, organized, and thorough. We could not have been happier with how Kathleen coached us through the home selling process. I highly recommend Kathleen to anyone buying/selling a home” Stephanie Andrews 8/23/18
