More About Me


My goal is to listen and understand each client's unique needs and provide the best information so that they may make the best and right choices. I'll work hard to ensure your transaction is straight forward, stress-free, and successful.


A self professed ‘real estate junkie' before turning 40 I had built two new homes and done major remodels on three. Going into Real Estate as a professional was a natural transition and one which I have never looked back – l love this work and have thoroughly enjoyed the success of the last 12 years and looking forward to many more to come. Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan I came to Oregon with a Horticulture degree and worked managing ornamental tree nurseries for many years. A chance, but fateful encounter with a friend's friend found me dating a surfer raised in Cannon Beach and my coastal adventure began!


“KATE exceeded our expectations in so many ways it is hard to list. Since we don’t live in the community full-time, Kate was very helpful in rounding up estimates and contractors to fix the things the inspection found wrong. She is clearly knowledgeable about the market and helped us formulate our bid in a very advantageous way. She has continued to be helpful after the closing.” 

"KATE, I am always really impressed by your skills as a realtor, and I know that I am not alone in is rare and refreshing to find someone who is so professional and competent on one hand, while being so easygoing and genuine on the other."


“KATE was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was not only very knowledgeable about the market and neighborhood, but also gave us great advice about how best to market our house and negotiate with the buyers. When issues came up during the negotiations, she always had ideas about how to deal with them before even bringing them to the table -- making our experience almost effortless. We really appreciate Kate's skills!”

“KATE just sold our Cannon Beach, Oregon house in a depressed economy with over 70+ other properties on the market. She was very engaging, has great taste herself and really was a lovely bright spot in an otherwise emotionally difficult move. Highly recommended without any reservations.”

“KATE was spectacular. Thoughtful, knowledgeable, responsive. She exercised perfect judgment navigating our purchase both in guiding us through the looking process and then the purchase itself. She knows her business and the market and is a terrific professional as well as an extremely nice person."

“KATE was THERE—always available to take a call and answer questions, prompt to get keys and show properties when we were at that stage, gracious and effective in providing support during the negotiation stage, and a good listener throughout. Knowledgeable, professional, personable, reliable….it was a pleasure working with her."

"Thank you so much KATE for your outstanding effort throughout this process. I’d hate to think what would have happened with a less capable or committed agent. I hope to work with you again someday…on an easier property!"
