A Note from Tom & Carolyn Haas...

"We met Kay more than 16 years ago when she successfully marketed a home in our neighborhood and after that, we knew that we wanted her to be our Realtor when we were ready for a move. For experience, personalized marketing, value added services & results, she is the best! We now join hundreds of past clients who say they wouldn't make a move without Kay."

A Note from Nancy Shasteen, MD...

"I received a full price offer on the first day of re-listing my home. This is due to Kay's background work of proper pricing, and recommending correction of items that might delay a sale. She was fun to work with and always responsive. I highly recommend her!"

A Note from Henry Brashen...

"I hired Kay as my Realtor in March of 2010. I would give her my highest recommendation. She gave me excellent guidance throughout the process. First, she told me what I needed to do to get my house in order for selling. She outlined the steps and offered suggestions for accomplishing them. Additionally, she gave me a timetable for completion. My house went on the market in early April. Kay had come over with a stager and they went through every room in the house and planned how it should look. Kay donated some of her own items and also purchased some items for the house. She held several open houses and brokers open and continually marketed my house. She followed up regularly with Realtors that showed the house. She did price comparisons with other houses in my location. Kay made it clear that her role was to sell my house as quickly as possible while providing guidance and suggestions to me. She said that all decisions were mine, but she would weigh in. The other benefit of having Kay as a Realtor was her communication. She regularly provided me updates and when I was stressed, she would have a calming and reassuring influence on me. She was with me every step of the way, and my house sold in August of 2010. I am very grateful to have had Kay as my Realtor, and I would recommend her without reservation."

A Note from Deborah Whetzel...

"I have never used a real estate agent before who worked so hard for a sale and was so successful. Kay used every means available to get my home seen by as many people as possible: Open houses, high quality & attractive flyers, postcards, excellent photography as well as professional staging, word of mouth and lots of networking, just to name a few! Kay was there for my every need from the day I met her to the day of closing. She certainly goes above and beyond, and I highly recommend Kay to anyone."

A Note from Marcelle Amira...

"I've worked with Kay on multiple sales and purchases of homes and condominiums and consider her to be a true partner. She provides needed advice while being respectful of what's important to me. Integrity is key to her, along with treating every client as an individual who deserves only the best."

A Note from Dr. Donald Shifrin & Bobbi Chamberlin...

"I would highly recommend Kay Zatine to anyone buying or selling a home. We have had the pleasure of working with Kay over the past 20 years as our real estate agent in the sale and purchase of four homes. It's a well-known fact that buying and selling a family home is emotional and often times stressful. Kay made the process as painless as possible. And her infectious personality brought warmth and compassion to our many transactions. She is extremely professional, well informed and savvy. She worked tirelessly on our behalf and her attention to detail was impeccable. Kay is a terrific sales agent."

A Note from William T. Knudsen...

"Over the past 16 years it has been my extreme pleasure to buy and sell four residences with the considerable assistance of Kay Zatine of Windermere Real Estate. And while I have heard many horror stories about the problems and challenges of buying and selling homes through other realtors and firms from friends and associates, I say unequivocally that that all of my experiences with Ms. Zatine have been enjoyable. Kay is a true professional; she is incredibly honest, has an amazing feel for real estate (especially on the Eastside) and her attention to detail is legendary. I have also noticed that every time I see Kay she has more of those little letters after her name on her business card, which says to me that not only is she professional and knowledgeable now, but apparently she continues to seek new and pertinent information to make her better at assisting clients through the labyrinth that a real estate transaction has become in these trying times. I couldn't recommend her more highly and I am sure you will have the same appreciation for her professionalism that I do."

A Note from Claudette Granahan...

"Working with Kay was a joy! What I really appreciated was her attention to detail along with her big picture view. She was always prepared and always had plenty of possibilities for me to see. She listened to my specifications and remembered them and followed through. Kay is the ultimate professional who is steeped in real estate knowledge and applies that know-how with finesse and a smile. I highly recommend her."

A Note from Doug and Liz Rowan...

"What would we have done without Kay? She quickly delved into what we could do to make our house more salable and even provided us with a professional house stager. Her enthusiasm for our house was remarkable which kept us positive in a down market. There was a constant stream of valuable feedback from her on the opinions of everyone who viewed our home. She held many open houses on our behalf which we feel was responsible for our house being sold to the right clients. Kay is such a hard worker with immense integrity, devoted to her clients and she is fun! If you want to sell your house and have a pleasant experience doing so, Kay is the one for you!"

A Note from Frank Yandrasits & Barbara Cosgrove...

"My husband and I were married 7 years ago, and he promised me that when the kids were grown and gone, we could relocate to the Eastside, closer to my family and friends. About a year ago, that time came. We were looking at some locations and houses on our own, and we stumbled onto Kay at an Open House. She spent considerable time with us, and narrowed our options and while spending her own time using her expertise to research and interact with us at our convenience. Once we selected our new home, she helped us navigate through the buying process easily and efficiently. We love our house and location, and would never have picked the house and neighborhood left to our devices. Kay has an intuition on matching the family/client with the house, a rare skill in today's environment. Thanks Kay!"

A Note from Charles & Robyn Nathan...

"We highly recommend Kay Zatine as a personal Realtor. She goes above and beyond for her clients. Kay worked with us, both long distance and in person. She heard our needs and helped us to find and purchase our first home. (in spite of limited housing inventory) She represented us when we were unable to be present for inspections and her extensive knowledge helped us feel comfortable and secure in our home purchase. Kay's abounding energy, her professionalism and thorough diligence allowed us to close on our purchase in a timely manner. Kay's personal service is so sincere that we have gained more than the services of a real estate agent and we feel that we have gained a lifelong friend. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Kay to anyone who needs a Realtor to help represent them and she is great!"

A Note from Nick & Charlene Gormley...

"Nick and I wanted to take the time to thank you for everything you've done for us over the years in buying two houses and selling one. Particularly rewarding to us is that we are now living in our dream house that you were instrumental in securing for us. You are one of the most patient and diligent realtors we know and it makes you perfect in your profession. You kept close contact with us on all new listings. You spent endless hours exploring new neighborhoods with us. You worked to the wee hours of the nights at times drawing up contracts and hand delivering them to our house. And on every house that we purchased, I truly believe that your reputation for excellence and charming character helped booster our offers even more. Working with you was an absolute pleasure and you helped make the experience a joyful one. We have already spread the word that if anybody is looking to buy or sell, you are the one! We highly recommend you and would love to do business with you again in the future and although we are hoping it's not for a long time. The most amazing thing out of the experience is that we gained you as a great friend that we will treasure forever. Thank you so much for all your help, advice, wisdom, patience, and most importantly, your friendship."
