Kathleen Nelson Testimonials

I have known and worked with Kathleen for the past 13 years. From the moment I started working with her, I realized that she was very different from many in the industry. She operates in a totally professional manner. She knows her industry well and she knows her inventory well. She will not cut corners and keeps both buyers and sellers on the “straight and narrow” in terms of what is acceptable and what is not. Her attention to detail is second to none. I have asked and received advice on numerous occasions and have followed that advice without a second thought because I trust her implicitly. What makes Kathleen so successful is her professionalism and her personality. She is great fun, very personable and really builds great relationships with her clients so that they are life -long clients and friends. I cannot recommend her enough; the ride will be thoroughly professional – no stones are left unturned- and it will be fun!

About 15 years ago we bought a property in the Salida area with Kathleen, and when the time came to sell it this year, we went right back to her.  Both times she made things as easy as possible for us and always acted with integrity.  When she represented us as sellers, we were so impressed with her tirelessness, and we greatly appreciated that she stayed on top of every detail, ensuring that the closing was completed smoothly.  What a great pleasure it has been for us to work with her!


I’ve thought about it over the past day and I can honestly say, there isn’t anything about the sale of my I Street property that I was unhappy about . . . . . and I’m not saying that just to be nice. I do know how important feedback is to a person in your kind of business.

I appreciated how quickly you got the sale organized and relayed to me what I needed to do. Your suggestion of a sales price was “spot on” and I think contributed to a speedy sale. While you suggested things that I HAD to do, you also discouraged me from spending money on things that wouldn’t really help sell the house. I was also very grateful that you kept me updated and informed about what was going on. It’s really stressful (at least for someone like me) to try to complete a financial transaction like this from a couple thousand miles away.

As to what you could have done better, I don’t think you could have done anything better. . . . really! I was totally satisfied with the whole process. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a reliable, trustworthy, competent and friendly agent.
