Kathy is the BEST realtor I have ever worked with and I have bought/sold properties in 10 states! She earned every penny of her commission and made the process a total pleasure from the beginning of the home search to the closing. Kathy goes the extra mile and her attention to every detail of the transaction made it easy for me to buy a property while being in a different part of the country. The listing broker was no where to be found so everything fell on Kathy's shoulders. I can tell you that my deal would never had happened without Kathy's expertise and follow up. On top of her professional acumen, she is honest, intelligent, and a true pleasure to work with - a solid business woman and human being.

My husband and I have dealt with many different Realtors in our 30 years of marriage, and Kathryn Balistreri is by far one of the most professional and competent Realtors we have ever had the pleasure of working with.  We have been very impressed with her responsiveness to our real estate needs. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"Paula and I wanted to to take a moment to express our appreciation for you success in listing and selling our lakefront home at Lake Toxaway.  As you know, we previously had the home listed with both of the largest realtors in Lake Toxaway.  Moving our listing to you turned out to be one of the best things we could have done.  You were thorough, creative, aggressive and got results in less than 3 months.  Attention to details, such as ensuring the lights were on prior to bringing a prospect, was refreshing.  Certainly, it is time consuming to pay attention to details such as this but, in our opinion; it was this commitment to making sure that our home presented itself in the most favorable light, along with you ability to find qualified prospects that contributed greatly to the successful sale.

After there was an accepted offer, your efforts to resolve the issues most efficiently and cost effectively for us led to a successful closing when the deal might otherwise have fallen apart.

Paula and I are pleased to recommend you to other folks, who are looking for a broker who is committed to working hard, working smart and working in your client's best interests.

We wish all the best for you both personally and professionally.


Jeff and Paula Graham."

Dear Kathy,

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful job you did in listing and selling our house at Lake Toxaway.

You were well informed on all procedures necessary for listing and for the closing and potential buyers were influenced.  I am certain, by your enthusiasm for the property.  And to think - it was on the market for only a week!  That's rare.

The bonus for Bill and me was what a nice person you are.  I rally miss you.
