Let’s face it, showing your home to potential homeowners can be inconvenient.  You have to straighten up, pack up the family, take the dog and vacate your home.  And the longer your home is on the market, the more burdensome it becomes. Sometimes the timing is just plain bad. But think twice before denying showings […]

The Value of a Lake Expert

By Kathleen Seaman | May 13, 2020 | 1 Comment

Zillow Reviewer

"I met Kyle in 2015 when my husband and I were first time homebuyers. He was patient and knowledgeable with us and took the time to listen and understand our needs and concerns. We recently sold that home and are in the process of purchasing another, Kyle has been organized and on-top of communication while we navigate this new-to-is process. With such high stakes, and the amount of money involved, I would not trust anyone else."

Zillow Reviewer

"Sam was great to work with. He looked into the properties I expressed interest in, and sent me information ahead of us meeting up. He was very responsive to my emails and texts, which is saying a lot given that this was happening during a pandemic. I didn't know much about the buying process, but felt I could trust Sam's guidance as he presented as someone with integrity."

Zillow Reviewer

"Kate handled with expertise two related real estate sales (our home as well as a lot) that required knowledge and experience, and close attention to detail, to bring to closing. She did so to our satisfaction. Our sale price was greater than our list price! Kate and her team are nice to work with and very supportive."

Zillow Reviewer

"Kate represented us in selling our house, located on a Cornell Real Estate land lease, and in buying a house in an outlying area. In our sale process, we relied on Kate's good local knowledge of Cornell, local realtors, and the market, especially in dealing with multiple offers and inspection issues. Kate was pro-active in promoting our sale and following up with interested realtors. Kate was likewise helpful in navigating the inspection process. We sold an old historic home and bought an old house. As such there were inspection issues to discuss on both ends. On the buying side, Kate followed our lead and allowed us to look in several different locations, being open-minded about our shifting priorities. The entire process was stressful, putting Kate's charming personality to good use! There are several aspects of the house selling and buying processes that disadvantage full awareness - such as buyers having limited access to a property and the walk-through being rushed right before the closing; or the contract process taking a seller's property off the market for a protracted period of time without a guaranteed sale. Kate's experience was important to us in understanding how to make this process sufferable, and even enjoyable! Also, her team is great! Adrienne, and Kate's colleagues helped us when Kate was not available. We have no reservations about recommending Kate."

Zillow Reviewer

"We’ve had Kate involved in 4 property transactions for us spanning over the past 8 years; purchasing 3 properties and selling 1. Her expertise shines through in many situations from the start to the finish of each transaction. In addition, her knowledge of the Ithaca area was most important during our initial relocation to the area. She is one in a million! Thorough, logical and just plain smart. She is the woman for the job, no matter what the task, she will always be there and follow through."

Zillow Reviewer

"Kyle is always extremely helpful with any real estate related questions we have, he has local knowledge and knows the market. He works hard and his clients satisfaction is his number one priority. Our family is lucky to call Kyle our friend and neighbor!"

Zillow Reviewer

"In an area with so many exceptional agents, why did I pick Kathleen Spooner over the rest? Kathleen was patient, thorough and fun! I was a first time home buyer, so Kathleen clearly and patiently walked me through every step of the process. She thoughtfully showed me homes that met my needs and wants and that were in my price range. She lent her previous home inspection expertise while touring homes, offered advice, recommendations, and pointed out potential future expenses. And she did so with a great sense of humor and levity to ease any fears or nerves that I had. Kathleen found me both a beautiful house and a wise investment, but most importantly she found me a home. Thank you, Kathleen!"
