The Katie and Kelly team were a great experience. I felt like they listened to everything we wanted from initial introductions all the way through inspection. The current slowdown in real estate is starting to show the sins of most realtors who are mostly middlemen that don’t add much value or deep advice. Katie was not that at all. She will go to bat for you and offer value added ideas and advice from the fun stuff like design and potential upgrades, but could also provide insights to the most technical aspects of the transaction too. Kelly made the end-to-end process extremely organized, which was great since we are from out of town. In short, I just felt like we were in great hands. Add to that their incredible response time, 10/10 would definitely recommend!!
Thank you to Katie and Kelly for helping us through downsizing from the home we built 25 years ago into the perfect space for us. Katie and Kelly are like family! Young friends and lovely trusted experts! Their attention to detail was tended to perfectly in multiple transactions!
Katie is a phenomenal realtor. Not only did Katie have a buyer on hand for our existing home, but also knew of our dream home that had not even hit the market yet. Katie’s knowledge, work ethic, and caring personality make her a true pleasure to work with. We have recommended her to all our all friends and family
From the moment I met Katie, it was clear to me that she was the person I needed to sell my home. She was professional, service oriented, knowledgeable, experienced, open and honest throughout the selling (and buying) process. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone that is going through the sale or purchase of a residence.
Katie and her team are consummate professionals dedicated to getting first class transactions done in a first-class way. She acts as a trusted advisor; her level of market insight, her ability to listen to her client’s needs, and, perhaps most importantly, her ability to tease out her clients’ true desires through a truly collaborative process is unmatched. Personal relationships are often undervalued in a fast-moving market like Atlanta, and Katie’s strength here is second to none. My dream house was identified by her before it hit the market through one of her relationships, and the entire negotiating and closing process benefitted from her ability to call on her deep network. She can also go toe to toe with the toughest professional sellers in a way that proves her only priority is putting her clients first. I would (and do) recommend Katie to my closest friends – high-touch at its finest.
Katie was an excellent and fun realtor to work with on our first home purchase. She was very consultative and responsive and understood exactly what we were looking for. She offered great insight into different neighborhoods and was always quickly available to view/show homes. She is very well connected and was able to provide the inside scoop on some listings as well as schedule a “sneak-peak” showing. She also ensured the offer and paperwork process was very smooth and easy to understand.
Katie and her team were particularly helpful in analyzing the listing scenario and comparable home sales data for the house we purchased, as it enabled us to negotiate a great price compared to what we would have offered without that information. As a result, we got a home in a great neighborhood and school district that would have been a stretch without her help. Thank you, Katie!
Katie was a pleasure to work with. Katie was very honest, organized and communicative and really kept us on-track throughout negotiations and beyond. It was clear that Katie had our best interest at heart and genuinely wants what is best for our family. We highly recommend her.
I am convinced that the reason we were able to sell our home and lock up our next house in a matter of days, is because of Katie’s expertise, her connections in the city of Atlanta, and overall drive to make it work! We had a 45-day window to do it and she got it all done. What I appreciate about her the most is her professionalism, accessibility, honesty, and grit. Our experience with Katie was tremendous – simply put, she is the best in the business!
Katie is an absolute delight to work with in every possible way! She possesses all of the qualities one could hope for in an agent– she is knowledgeable, dependable, communicative, understanding, thorough, friendly, and so much fun. She made the experience of buying a home as seamless and enjoyable as it comes. I can’t say enough wonderful things about her and will highly recommend her to everyone I know!
I would like to take the time out to express how extremely happy we have been with Katie Brannen McGuirk representing us as both buyer and seller of our homes over the past 5 years in Buckhead and Vinings. Katie has assisted us four times now and each transaction has been a home run with us. In 2013, she had our home under contract in two days and in 2018, our home was literally under contract within hours of listing it. These fast sales were not because of luck. They occurred because Katie knows what she is doing and has passion for what she does. On the purchasing end, Katie has done an outstanding job for us as well. You always feel like you are her only client and she truly cares that you’re making a solid purchase. Her service is exemplary, and I can easily say she is clearly the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with over the years.
Katie and her team sold our home of 5 years and well exceeded our expectations. She’s the real deal Holyfield! Katie met with us, toured our home, saw the potential and the obstacles, and came back with a solid plan. Once we agreed, things started to move very quickly. We had relatively conservative views on what to do and Katie helped us understand what needed to happen to get the most value out of our home. Though we had some skepticism, I have to tell you: trust her process. She’s backed by an amazing team of people at Ansley that know this business. Once the house was ready to go on the market, it was beautiful – made me wonder why we were selling! Then Katie’s marketing campaign kicked in! Wow! Extremely impressive – great collateral, lots of buzz, and she kept us in the loop all the time. Lastly, at the offers! Katie cooly guided us through the process, confidently negotiated for a higher price, and closed the deal successfully. Katie and her team are masters in this business – such a treat to work with such a high caliber team!
Katie is a 5 star agent all around!
