- Michael

I enjoy working with Kathy because she is responsive and detailed. I had a buyer call Kathy on a Sunday afternoon with little to no notice. Kathy was happy to accommodate the buyer to show a property. She proceeded to write a contract the same day, to be sure the buyers contract was first in line to be reviewed. She was extremely proactive to ensure her buyer an accepted contract. Kathy’s proactive spirit carried through the process. I would highly recommend Kathy McBane!

It is always a pleasure to work with Kathy. She is friendly, professional and has excellent knowledge of all sides of real estate. 

- Angela

Kathy was so responsive to our needs. Kathy helped us set a reasonable price for our house. We were able to accept the first offer! She replied to every text and email immediately! She made the process of selling our house effortless.

- Victoria Bryant

Kathy is one of those dream team leaders you want one your side. Since 2011 she has referred numerous real estate clients for exterior household repairs and roof certifications. Kathy’s clients are always cheerful, relaxed, and happy even in the middle of working through the various challenges that sometimes arise. She is sincere, excellent at communicating, and very prompt in service.

- Shane Cameron

We thought buying our first house would be a totally overwhelming experience, but Kathy was there to guide us every step of the way. From pointing out aesthetic and structural details during showings that we failed to notice, to negotiating deal points with the seller, and even providing recommendations for a few trusted contractors, Kathy was constantly looking for ways to add value and leverage her experience to make our life easier. Throughout the entire process, Kathy was considerate of our needs, operated completely on our schedule, and was always available to provide additional input if we needed it, without ever pushing us into a decision. She was both great to work with and extremely efficient, guiding us through a three-week closing with ease. We would highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking to buy a home in the Denver area. 

- Aaron & Kathleen

We’ve purchased and sold several homes over the years and Kathy’s been at our side every time. We’ve recommended Kathy to family and friends and everyone’s received the same personable and results oriented experience. 

- Doug

Kathy helped us buy our first home, and several years later helped us sell it when we moved out of state. She is the utmost professional who really takes care to understand your goals for the process, shows great attention to detail, and uses her knowledge and experience to provide the best outcomes. I would recommend her to anyone!

- Stephanie Brewer Crawford

Our family recently relocated to Denver from Arizona. We had a general idea of what we wanted for a new house, but didn’t know much about Denver’s neighborhoods and housing market. We were also working on a short timeline. Kathy listened to all of our requests and learned the “style” of the home we wanted to find. She did a great job of educating us on the area all while giving us the freedom to choose the perfect home for us. Without a doubt, Kathy is the best Realtor® we have ever worked with: professional, accommodating, a great communicator, and thorough. We will recommend her to everyone we talk to, she made the process of moving so much easier.

- Rob, Kanah, Rece and Addy

I appreciate how Kathy and her team are thorough, responsive, and helpful! She’s helped me buy 6 rental houses! 

- Jim

Thank you so much for finding us our house!  It has been absolutely amazing working with both you and Rachel.  We are so grateful for both of you! 

- Audrey & Ray

Kathy and I actually met working out at the same gym. She was so friendly, when I found out she did real estate, I asked for her help. She was great about giving me options and having so much patience as I made decisions about whether I was going to buy or not. Ultimately some life circumstances happened and I didn’t wind up buying but I would use Kathy in a heartbeat again. 

- Jennifer

Kathy is the greatest! She knows her stuff and goes to bat for her clients. I worked with her in a Transaction Broker relationship and I felt she had my back the whole way. Even when a couple of situations came up after that sale closed, she worked with the seller to make sure everything was addressed – and in such a way that everyone was happy the whole time! She’s simply works magic! You will not regret working with Kathy as your realtor weather you’re selling or buying, she’s the best! 

- Roberta

Any transaction I was involved in with Kathy was seamless thanks to her efforts and knowledge in the industry. 

- Mia, Licensed Escrow Agent at Fidelity National Title

After a year of attempting to sell our house, we fired the agent, and hired Kathy to list our home and represent us in the process. She guided us through all the stages, and sold our home in 21 days! Great Job!! Thanks. 

- David

Kathy knows the Denver market. She assisted us in selling our bungalow in Harvard Gulch back in 2007, just as the market was collapsing. She understood the market and sold our house in a day. The purchasing party had some complications and Kathy guided us through to another buyer immediately. We were moving north and she was able to recommend a colleague in the area we were moving. Kathy is an excellent agent and I highly recommend her! 

- Linda

Kathy and her team represent excellence in the real estate industry. Her firm is also very well respected and continues to set the bar to an unmatched level. I have a high level of respect for Kathy and you will too once you afford yourself the opportunity to work with her. 

- Joshua Graham, Branch Manager/Loan Originator Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation

Kathy did an amazing job helping us sell our previous home for the best possible price, then turn around and help us get into our wonderful new home!  One of the things we appreciated most about having Kathy as our realtor is she brought to the table considerable expertise and wisdom in her guidance through the entire home selling and home buying process.  She listened to us as we described the direction we were hoping to head, honed in on those goals and knew what steps to take to help us achieve them.   We were confident in her abilities from start to finish. When it came time to make an offer on a house, there was a lot of competition out there, and we were glad we had Kathy in our corner!

We will recommend Kathy to all of our friends as they look to either buy or sell a home! Thanks Kathy for all you did!

- Tim, Abby, and Aya

My wife and I hired Kathy to help us transition from our first condo into our first real home. From the start she was helpful, informative, and extremely professional. She was able to correctly asses and price our home for sale as well as provide resources to help prepare it to obtain maximum value. We were able to sell my condo in a down market quickly and for a fantastic price.
She, and her team, were also able to help us find the perfect home that fit every requirement we had including location, size, and budget. We couldn’t be happier with the entire experience and I will gladly hire her again the next time I am in the market and continue to recommend her to everyone I know who’s looking for a new home.

- Josh

Kathy was a great resource for our family. She advised us thoroughly on selling our previous home and helped us find a new home with the perfect floor plan for our family.

- John, Karin, Jesse, Sierra & Maggie

I have referred Kathy to family and friends for their real estate needs. She rallies a great team around her and their collaboration is second to none. For all your real estate needs I strongly recommend The Kathy McBane Team! 

- David

Kathy is a detail oriented and personable knowledgeable professional a skilled marketing professional who gets results I’d use her again. 

- Jeff

Kathy is exceptional at what she does and I am grateful to have been represented by her in this sale.  I think hard work and attention to detail give our lives meaning and I was encouraged by her ethic and commitment.  I’ll recommend Kathy above any agent in town, if given the chance.  Many thanks.

- Brendan

Kathy’s knowledge of Denver from the city to the “burbs” is unmatched. From staging expertise to pricing strategy, Kathy’s team is tops. In the end, our home was under contract in 24 hours, with several bids and above asking price. Closing in under a month. Kathy and her team’s all-around expertise and knowledge of the Denver housing market and process was critical to making each step smooth and seamless. Currently, on the hunt for our next home, we know we have the best team helping to guide us.

- The Lindstroms

We just sold/purchased our fifth home with Kathy. She’s an honest, friendly, and hardworking realtor. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home.

- Gina Francalancia

Kathy, we want to thank you so much for doing such a great job in getting dad’s house sold quickly.   I was impressed by your professionalism, communication and real estate knowledge as soon as I met you last year so I knew you would do a great job in helping us get the home sold.

- Jeff

This was the third time Kathy helped me sell a house, and most unfortunately, the last time she can help me buy a house since I have moved away from Colorado.  The day we went on the market I was in my jam-packed car driving across the country and felt totally comfortable leaving everything in her hands. As I drove Kathy was constantly in touch updating me as the sale – and negotiations –  progressed.  Despite the immense stresses of a move, she was the one thing I could count on – nothing falls through the cracks, everything is taken care of, not at all like my procrastinating and disorganized self.  Kathy is a clear communicator: direct and professional, yet warm and caring and great at guiding anyone through the process of buying or selling.

- Katherine

We were referred to Kathy McBane for our real estate needs moving from Chicago to Denver. Having limited knowledge of the real estate market, Kathy was an excellent resource to help us with our move. She was able to pinpoint several neighborhoods throughout northwest Denver that fit our needs. Luckily for us, she took us down Tennyson on our first visit out with her and we were hooked, ultimately buying in the neighborhood.  Kathy was extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and helped us find the perfect home from 1,000 miles away. She always had our best interests in mind and ensured that we purchased our dream home.

- Rob and Erin

If you are buying or selling a home in the Denver area, do yourself a huge favor and work with Kathy. This process will indubitably be stressful, and she will indubitably make it better. She is an outstanding negotiator and never fails to put her clients’ needs first. She advised us to rent rather than sell my parents’ condo, even though that meant we would not be working with her. Real integrity!! She also gets properties sold, even in a tough economy. There are lots of agents out there, but very few of her caliber! 

- Melissa

Kathy was fantastic to work with! My best friend referred me to Kathy and I contacted her last minute to help me put an offer on a house I had seen during a weekend open house. She stepped up and helped me put in a competitive bid. Unfortunately, we lost to a cash buyer (a hot market will do that), but was able to help me find the perfect house a few weeks later. Her knowledge of the Denver market was invaluable. Working with Kathy was an absolute pleasure. 

- Cheryl

Kathy helped us focus on what was right for our family by giving us frank input about the market and helping us clarify what we wanted.

- Andrea, Tom and Alex

We have completed 4 real-estate transactions with Kathy. The most recent was a little tricky as we closed on a sale and a purchase on the same day. In short, we have been extremely happy with Kathy and the work she and her team does. While real estate sales and purchases are never “simple”, Kathy and her team help to minimize the brain damage while adding a bit of fun to the process.

- Todd

Kathy helped me and my wife with the purchase of our home. She did a fantastic job! Kathy has integrity, is knowledgeable and has an enjoyable personality that makes her easy to work with. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. 

- Jared

We hired Kathy to sell our Park Hill home, and couldn’t be happier with the results. We interviewed 3 agents to sell our home and the other two came back with a value 15-25% under Kathy. She recommended what we needed to do to prep the home for sale (paint, yard work, etc.) found all the contractors, and got the work done. We put the home up for sale and received a full price offer in 2 days. We couldn’t have ask for a better experience. 

- Nicholas

Kathy’s attention to detail, knowledge and experience made buying and selling our home seem easy, even when it wasn’t. We would recommend Kathy and her team to anyone… and we already have!

- Chris, Jen & Henry

I trust Kathy to live up to every expectation we set together. She is a true professional and someone I have enjoyed doing business with on numerous occasions. 

- Greg

We were referred to Kathy by other very satisfied clients and we could not have been more pleased. Kathy knows the Denver area market, had a solid pricing strategy for us, and took care of all the things needed to get our property ready to go on the market quickly. She took responsibility to handle the details, negotiate with various parties, and built a fast list of buyers over a holiday weekend. Our unit sold in 3 days – above asking price – and we closed in 3 weeks. Kathy’s experience and expertise was a huge part of making it happen smoothly and quickly. I would highly recommend her!

- Carolyn and Kay

My husband and I are full time real estate investors, and Kathy has helped us purchase a hundred or more properties in the last 5 years. She regularly enables us to buy homes that we would not have been able to purchase were it not for her strong positive relationships with other agents, her shrewd negotiations skills, and her persistence despite the many challenges involved in a typical transaction.

Regardless of what we encounter in the purchase or sale of one of our homes — whether it be a buyer who gets cold feet, an agent on the other end of the transaction who is not giving sufficient attention to the deal, a seller with unreasonable expectations of what his or her home is worth, or a lender or underwriter wreaking havoc on an otherwise smooth sale — Kathy gets to the root of the problem and solves it.

Beyond being an invaluable resource for our business, Kathy has also helped us buy and sell our own homes. Negotiations for the purchase of our current home were difficult and spanned over the course of an entire year, yet Kathy never gave up. With her help, we were eventually able to strike a deal. After 7 months of renovations, we have finally moved in and could not be happier.

With all the challenges that home buyers and sellers face in today’s difficult market, you need someone like Kathy in your corner. We are always thankful that we have her in ours.

- Craig, Cynthia, Joy & Zoe

Kathy is – HANDS DOWN – the most professional realtor I’ve ever worked with, both for my own real estate transactions AND in my previous career as a realtor.

Prior to meeting Kathy, Mike and I had a nightmarish (but comical) experience with another Denver realtor who wanted to exclusively represent us without doing any work for us for MONTHS. Needless to say, we weren’t eager to employ the help of another realtor, but were so SO fortunate to meet Kathy as purchasers of a home she had listed. We were unrepresented for our first transaction with her, which I know is typically the dread of a listing agent, but instead of complicating matters, Kathy did quite the opposite. She made our experience an absolute pleasure: straightforward and fair.

Immediately following the closing of our new home, we asked Kathy to list our condo, and again – she got right to work, opening doors instead of creating obstacles. The condo sold with multiple competing offers on the day of listing, which certainly reflects the type of market we were in, but also speaks to Kathy’s overall approach, as we were told by the nightmare/jokester realtor mentioned earlier that we wouldn’t see much of a gain on our investment “due to foreclosures in the area…no good comps…blah blah…”. We most definitely saw a big return on our investment, and best of all, it was FAST, EASY, and ENJOYABLE.

Fast forward another 9 months, and we were being relocated! We again sought out Kathy’s expertise, and in 8 hours of showings we had 8+ offers, several of which were well over list price and ready to close in 2-3 weeks. Again, the market was in our favor as sellers, but along with great offers often come flaky buyers, lackadaisical buyers’ agents, etc., against which we were shielded – I believe – because of how hard Kathy worked. She not only crafted the listing with perfection (including meticulously scheduling the MLS publishing date, showing availability date, offer(s) review date, etc.), but also managed the showing & negotiation period with professionalism and care; and finally, worked to resolve impending issues as thoroughly and efficiently as possible so that we could close on time.

Kathy was THERE, 100%, every step of the way. Never once did we feel like she’d prioritized someone else’s agenda over our needs, or that she had “collected her commission” & moved on. In fact, she checked in on us after a lengthy lease-back period, long after her work was done, and probably would have helped us in any way we might have needed. I think we owe Kathy every extra dime we could possibly give her for the time and consideration she put into each of our transactions. I hope our friends and family in Denver will look to her for their real estate needs!

Kathy helped me to sell my row home in Sunnyside, which I had bought through her five years ago. She consulted me in preparing the house by recommending a paint consultant and helping me find staging furniture. By the time I officially put the sign up, my house was so beautiful, I questioned if I even wanted to move anymore! My house was on the market for only a week before we got our asking price, and I feel that Kathy’s advice, professionalism and expertise on the market and the neighborhood made all the difference. I got my asking price, which I would have never imagined was possible just a few years ago.

Fortunately, that’s only half of it!

Nearly within the same week of finding a buyer, Kathy found me a house 2 blocks from City Park. I hadn’t even considered the area, but now I couldn’t be happier as I walk my dog around the park almost everyday. It’s a dream house for me– a 1905 brick bungalow, which I couldn’t find anywhere in my price range in the other neighborhoods I had been looking in. With it’s hardwood floors, remodeled kitchen, and over-sized two-car garage, I still feel like I am dreaming everyday I wake up. In February, I told Kathy that I wanted to be planting this year’s garden in my new back yard, and that’s exactly what she helped me do. Rachel Abrahams, her associate, also helped with both transactions, and she also demonstrated incredible professionalism, flexibility, and patience.

Both buying and selling experiences were nearly seamless, and where there were any challenges, Kathy and Rachel supported my needs with full effort. I truly felt like my best interest was a priority.

I HIGHLY recommend Kathy and her RE/MAX team. 

- Lisa

I loved working with Kathy and her team during the entire house selling and purchasing process.  I have purchased and sold a few homes before and have always dreaded the experience.  With Kathy it was exactly the opposite.  It was easy, fun, stress-free and, best of all, profitable!

When we worked with Kathy in selling our home (which sold in a weekend) she was extremely knowledgeable about the market and provided us with the most amazing resources for preparing and showcasing our home.  Kathy handled all the logistics and behind the scenes matters that are typically time consuming and stressful for the seller.  When we received multiple offers on our home the first day on the market, Kathy worked closely with us, keeping us informed at every step and helping us weigh the pros and cons of each offer.  Once we chose a buyer, she worked in a very professional manner with the buyer’s agent and was able to seamlessly close the deal that was not only fair but advantageous to both parties.

When looking for homes, Kathy understood the kind of house I was looking for as well as the kind of feeling I wanted in a home.  She knew about houses that came on the market before I did, and I was diligently searching multiple times a day!  She was always up for looking at homes with me, even if it was just one home at a time.  I never felt pressured into making a decision and she encouraged me throughout the entire process.  When I was unsure, she aided in my decision making, which I greatly valued.  I trusted her intuition and experience.  When I finally found “the one”, I was quickly discouraged to find out that we were competing against 10 other offers.  Kathy worked closely with me, the mortgage consultant, and the seller’s agent… negotiating and coordinating perfectly to allow me to get into my dream house at the right price with the right loan.  I cannot say enough about Kathy and her team and the great work they did for me.  I may not dread the process ever again!  I am now in a great house in a great neighborhood, unpacked and loving my new home in Northwest Denver.
