Kate Johnston Testimonials

Kate was great! We were first time home buyers and she really took the time to explain all of the steps and how everything was going to work. She is a very positive and upbeat person, and we felt very comfortable with her through out the entire process. She also has a lot of contacts, which was   very helpful when it came to some home improvements we wanted to make.


Kate is an astute, passionate and dedicated agent who goes several extra miles to help you find your dream home! We were fortunate to be introduced to Kate through our agent in the Bay area, CA. A little about us - we are a couple who recently moved to Washington from the Bay Area for work. We had  the vision to buy our first home in the Greater Seattle area within 2 months of moving to Washington so that we avoid getting into rental housing! As crazy as it sounds, we were first-time home-buyers in a fierce real estate market with an interest towards older homes with bigger lots. This translates to us having to put offers down for competitive homes that attract very strong and seasoned buyers. Achieving this required a lot of market analysis and research from our end in addition to learning the different neighbourhoods in the area that could potentially fit our liking and affordability. Kate provided and also helped us navigate through a ton of information (which can be super intimidating for people like us who are new to the city and the real estate market) without being overwhelmed and carefully drew our attention to many small, but important details that need to be factored in while deciding where you want to live. Our search area was limited to Bothell-Woodinville-Kirkland-Kenmore area after extensive studies/driving around neighbourhoods and commute proximity to Seattle for work. Kate always helped in keeping the big picture in view for us so that we don't get distracted and fall into potential "traps". She was really patient in listening to what we expect in our potential home (as first-time home buyers the list kinda gets endless and sometimes unrealistic ;)) and always kept us on track to have realistic expectations. With all this homework done, we did manage to get our first and only offer picked for our dream house :) She was spot-on in with her predictions on how far we should stretch to get our house and beat the other strong offers. Overall, she is the best agent you could ask for. And the big plus - she knows everything and anything to do with homes, that means, movers-packers/contractors/inspectors/interior designers/and so much more! Rest assured, she will hold your hand throughout the process and answer all your questions and concerns promptly. She is one of the most resourceful people we have ever met and now we can call her our friend, not just our agent. We strongly recommend Kate for your search :)

Kate is a top-notch professional.  She has a wealth of knowledge in Real Estate, her network appears to be endless and she kept us informed on every event that occured along the way.  She made introductions through email with the escrow/title team, which is very important as so often an agent   passes a client through and then just waits for the check at this point.  Kate keeps in touch with the closing team, watches for deadlines and makes certain her clients understand all that is occuring with the process.  If you are a 1st time buyer, or have ever had a bad agent, I promise, Kate Johnston will renew your faith in the buying/selling of real estate.  She is FABULOUS!!  We sold & funded our home in 3 weeks.....because she is so connected.  You will never be disappointed enlisting the services of Kate Johnston.  We give her a 10.


I've used Kate twice now for selling two properties and purchasing a new home.  Besides her expertise and endless resources she has at her fingertips, she has remained a great friend.  The difference with Kate and any other agent I've used in the past is that Kate doesn't "go away" once the deal is   done.  She stays in your life as a friend and resource for you, always doing little things to always remember her by and that are personal to you.  That is what makes her an exceptional agent and friend.  I recommend her to everyone I know!


Kate is an  excellent Agent. She helped us buy a home ad sell our condo.
She has been VERY patient and understanding as it took us a year to find THE house. 
She was aggressive in negotiations and knows the market like the back of her hand. It was wonderful to have her in our corner.
She steered us from bad houses, supported us with tons of resources (handymen, landscapers, electricians and of course, staging)
She knows what she is doing and provides a highly personalized service.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED- can't say enough.
Thank you, Kate
