We loved working with Kathryn!
She is smart, she is responsive; she is honest; she doesn't count her time and she is so easy to work with.
I would recomend her without reservation!
Jerry/Rosa Mezistrano - Buyer & Seller
Kathryn is an amazing realtor. She goes above and beyond every time. She is an expert in her field and I trust her completely. She looked tirelessly for our home and never gave up until we found the home we were looking for.
A. Davis - Buyer
Kathryn was amazing! She was exceptionally knowledgeable and a fabulous communicator. I felt that she listened to our needs/wants and translated those things into well-tailored options. It was truly a wonderful experience working with Kathryn!
L. Wright - Buyer
Kathryn represented us in the purchase on a single-family home on Mercer Island. It was the culmination of a several-month search, during which Kathryn was exceptionally helpful and supportive. She's a great listener, quickly internalizing our needs, wants, and priorities, so her ability to screen properties for us was spot on. She made sure that we were early to view houses as they were listed so that we could stay competitive in a fast-moving market. During the months of searching, she was always responsive, prompt, and respectful of our time. When we prepared an offer, her analysis of comparable recent sales was thorough and extremely detailed, and her advice always supported by data. She's a great professional and a delight to work with.

We bought and sold a house with Kathryn last summer and found it to be a pleasure. Kathryn is professional, thoughtful, straightforward, and very knowledgeable. Kathryn helped us through the stress of buying and selling our house at the same time. From helping us prepare our well lived in house for sale in a record time to handling the buying details so we felt like we were always on track.
She priced and marketed our home such that we sold it in 6 hours after the listing went live. And she helped us nab our dream home in a competitive market by directly presenting our offer to the Seller's agent and convincing him we were the right buyer.
We felt we received an excellent price for our sale and avoided a potential bidding war for our purchase by getting the seller to commit to our offer.
Kathryn soothed our stress and angst as first time sellers. Always calm. Steady. Supportive.
I would recommend Kathryn to anyone. If you want empty bluster, get another agent. But if you want someone who's not afraid to shoot straight and get you an excellent deal, chose Kathryn.

Consummate professional, well versed in all aspects of residential real estate, great knowledge of the Mercer Island market!! Kathryn was great to work with; did a great job marketing the house; working with us to bring it on the market and move through all the steps to a successful sale.
S. Stiles - Seller
I've worked with Kathryn on non real estate matters, and have found her to be hard working, thorough, creative, professional, and of the highest integrity. I chose her for those reasons when it came time to sell my mother's home in Laurelhurst. The great training she's obviously received combined with her personal skills and talents were a formidable combination! She exceeded our highest expectations! In addition to her responsiveness and attention to detail, her sensitivity to our personal situation made us feel like we truly had an advocate in every sense of the word! I can't recommend her highly enough!

My wife Meghann and I had the pleasure of working with Kathryn Lerner in the summer of 2013. She worked with us to locate and purchase a new home in the Issaquah area while concurrently selling our existing home in Seattle. Throughout the sometimes overwhelming process, she conducted herself with the utmost professionalism while still providing the personal touch required when dealing with the emotional aspects of a home sale or purchase. The excellent communication experienced throughout both transactions was key in keeping with our tight timeline, while keeping our minds at ease. Both our sale and purchase transactions where completed in almost unheard of turnaround times. Thanks to her great work we have a terrific new house to call home.

Kathryn is an amazing Real Estate Agent. We had a very unique and difficult purchase as well as sale with our travel schedules but Kathryn's dedication and support saw us through until the end. I was so thankful she was always with us and helped us through this very big decision. I would recommend her to my family and friends.
B. Hosea - Buyer
Kathryn was super to work with. I had some rather specific things I was looking for in a new home and a restricted area to search in. Kathryn did the leg work for me and only took me to places that I really might have an interest in. When the place came along that met just about all of my want list, she worked with me quickly to get our bid in. She also was great in researching statistics about home sales in the area and trends. Kathryn knows her stuff, and is a delightful person to work with.
J. Bohlinger - Seller
Kathryn is great. Sold my home in one painless weekend. Could not have been easier or faster. She did it all, including staging outdoor furniture for my deck.
J. Petersen - Seller
When we decided to sell our house before relocating to Singapore, we knew we would need an agent and partner who would be organized, efficient, professional, and responsive. As our listing agent, Kathryn was all this and more. There was not one detail overlooked as she prepared our house for listing and the sale of our house was one of the easiest aspects of our complicated move. In fact, Kathryn put our house on the market while we were out of town and our house was sold by the time we returned!! When we return and need a new home, we wouldn't dream of working with anyone other than Kathryn.
