Fun Facts About Katie
1. Do you have kids?
Yes – My husband Kevin & I have 3 beautiful boys (Leo – 7, Logan – 6, & Levi – 1). Both Leo & Logan pretty much spend all of their time playing sports, so we are constantly on the go. Levi has recently learned how to walk and is always on the move, so there is never a dull moment around our house. It can definitely be crazy at times, but I wouldn’t trade being their Mom for anything in the world!
2. Do you have any siblings?
Yes – I have one older sister and one younger sister. Both live in North Mankato and we are extremely close.
2. What are your favorite hobbies?
Decorating & staging homes has been a passion of mine, even before I became a realtor. I love when clients ask me for my opinion or for a suggestions when it comes to how they have a certain room decorated or whether or not certain pieces of furniture go with a room or don’t. I also really enjoy getting the opportunity to see so many different homes on a daily basis and all of the different styles people have.
Being a Realtor
“From the moment I meet a new client, until the moment they are completely satisfied buying or selling their home, I aim to bring my enthusiasm and expertise to help make things go GREAT!”
What is your favorite thing about being a realtor?
This is really a tough one for me because I have always enjoyed all aspects of the real estate business. If I had to narrow it down, I would have to say that meeting new people and establishing relationships with them is something I really enjoy. Whether it is selling someone’s home or helping them with the purchase of a new house, I know that this is more than likely going to be one of the most important decisions they will ever make. This is something I do not take lightly and take a lot of pride in making sure that my clients feel very comfortable and educated about every step of the process.
I started out my career in real estate as an office administrator for a different real estate company in Mankato back in 2007. After being in that position for approximately 5 years, I decided that it was time for something new.
In 2012, I became a licensed real estate agent and could not be any happier for making that choice. After being in the business for a couple of years, I realized that I really loved my real estate career, but that my family and being a Mom were much more important to me.
My husband Kevin had also been in the real estate industry since 2007 and worked as a Real Estate Appraiser. In 2014, Kevin also got his real estate salesperson license and we have worked together as a team ever since.
I feel like we offer a very unique service as it is very rare that either Kevin or myself is not available to assist our clients in any way. Working together as a team has also been such a blessing for our family and neither of us has to feel like we are taking too much time away from home and our 3 boys.
I am so fortunate to really love what I do each and every day and can honestly say that my job in real estate, does not actually feel like a job to me at all. I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and have made many lifelong friends and relationships over the years. I truly love everything about the real estate business and cannot imagine doing anything else. I look forward to what the future holds in the real estate industry and would love the opportunity to work with those of you reading this in the future!
