Kathy Stankard, of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, has been a licensed Realtor since 1996 and has earned numerous awards for Broker of the Year. She has lived most of her life in Franklin and Wrentham, Massachusetts, therefore she has a thorough knowledge of her market area and its resources. Prior to her career in Real Estate, she worked in mental health services as a crisis counselor and consultant in the nursing home and prison system. She currently works both as a buyer and seller agent in the west of Boston communities. She is married with three children and enjoys reading, hiking and running.
I specialize in working with first time home buyers as well as move-up buyers. Many folks do not have the information they need to enter into their largest investment of home ownership. My buyers benefit from the time and education that I provide to allow them to become informed consumers. Often I am involved in overseeing and coordinating both a home sale and purchase for the same family--this takes great skill, timing and expertise. My "Years of Experience and Years of Results" makes for a smooth transaction from start to finish.
Approximately 90% of my business comes from repeat/referral business which is directly attributed to my honesty, fairness and ethics in all of my relationships. My past clients can attest to the fact that I will never tell someone something just because they want to hear it but rather let them know the truth in pricing or other issues regarding their transaction. I admit that I have lost some business as a result but I have not been willing to "inflate" a housing price estimate for the sake of obtaining an overpriced listing. I realize that some REALTORS engage in this practice but those behaviors do not create long-lasting relationships when a seller's home languishes on the market for a year or more.
|Kathy was truly a pleasure to work with. She was very professional, yet friendly and down-to-earth and we really appreciated her honest advice, with regards to our new neighborhood. Since buying our house, she has continued to offer her help and expertise and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and use her services again.|
|Kathy was the perfect agent for us. As first time homebuyers she went above and beyond for us. Her knowledge of the area really helped pinpoint where we wanted to purchase our first home. Throughout the whole process, initial meeting straight through to purchasing the home, she walked us through every step and explained the process. I would highly recommend Kathy to friends and family, she did an outstanding job and was a wonderful person.|
