Starting with my initial contact with Katheryn, I felt confident that all of my needs would be met to find a tenant for my rental condo. Katheryn initiated an all out effort consisting of an internet and print campaign. The ad was extremely well written, and the accompanying photos truly showcased the condo in the most positive light. I was kept informed throughout the process, and before long, the condo was rented. All the details were handled in an extremely efficient and timely manner. Katheryn took care of everything. I truly enjoyed working with Katheryn, and look forward to doing so for all future Real Estate needs.
Herb S., Warwick
We were new to the area, so Katheryn's in-depth knowledge, both of the town and the current state of the local real estate market, was invaluable. We were also relocating on a tight time frame, so Katheryn's responsiveness and full commitment to our search were critical. Throughout the process, Katheryn had only one goal -- to put us in the house that was right for us -- and she succeeded. We would recommend her wholeheartedly.
Brad and Sarah H., Warwick
Katheryn De Clerck was "Simply the Best" in every aspect. I was being relocated by my company on very short notice. My stress level was so high and she just took the ball and ran with it! Her professionalism, expertise in her field, and follow up skills are unmatched in my book!
Robyn W., Warwick
I listed my house in May. Katheryn DeClerck was my agent. She was very responsive and kept in touch weekly providing updates of showings and potential buyers. Because of her professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market, the sale of the house was finalized in August. The time frame was better than I had expected. I would recommend Katheryn to my friends and relatives. She provided a positive experience and outcome.
Kathleen C., Warwick
Katheryn is an asset to her organization, shows professionalism and dedication. She is attentive to the wishes of the sellers and produces a lovely flyer about the premises. She was always available and, most of all, sincere.
Gaspar A., Westtown
Working with Katheryn has been a pleasure. She is an excellent realtor who pays attention to details, offers prompt and courteous responses while offering suggestions that motivated us to move forward and obtain the home of our dreams. Katheryn is extremely professional, knowledgeable and approachable, always available and easy to talk to. We had a lot of fun looking for houses! Our relationship easily became a friendship because her motivation was not to sell us a house, but find us a home. She conducted herself in a manner beyond the "call of duty". She is good at what she does because she truly enjoys her job. I highly recommend her services as a Realtor.
Linda and Jim M., Unionville
Ms. DeClerck's level of professionalism is top quality. She gives 100% of herself to her job and makes the client feel comfortable and informed. She has a great deal of knowledge of the housing market. It was a pleasure working with Katheryn.
Liza M., Chester
We thought Katheryn did a wonderful job in all aspects of the real estate transaction. Even when we were getting depressed about not finding anything we liked, she kept trying until the right house came along. We would refer Katheryn to anybody we know looking for a home and feel confident that they would be satisfied.
Jean C. and David M., Warwick
We were lucky to have Katheryn DeClerck as our real estate agent. We were in a particularly high pressure situation and it was Ms. DeClerck's "finger on the pulse of the market" and negotiating skills (not to mention her vision of our home's potential) that got us into our new home in record time. Katheryn provided us with service and attention that I doubt could be duplicated by anyone else. P.S. Our previous home, listed by Ms. DeClerck, sold in a matter of days.
Lisa and John B., New Hampton
Katheryn was a conscientious and professional REALTOR throughout our home buying experience. She was quick to respond and returned calls in a timely manner. She is a warm and friendly and overall a pleasure to deal with.
Fred and Kathy N., Warwick
Katheryn was extremely professional and personal at the same time. She found out what my needs were and what I was able to do. I didn't have to chase her to get back -----she was always extremely prompt. Katheryn was honest and straightforward regarding any questions or concerns and even gave her opinion. I enjoyed working with her and would not hesitate to give out her name. I would most certainly use her again if ever looking.
Donna M., Florida
During the time we spent with Katheryn, searching for a home in Orange County, we found her to be very responsive to all our questions and concerns. She exhibited great knowledge of the market, seemed to enjoy working with her clients and paid great attention to our every need. Katheryn was a joy to work with and presented herself with the greatest level of professionalism. If I ever get the chance to recommend a "Great" REALTOR to someone searching for a home, I would not hesitate to give the name of Katheryn DeClerck as an excellent starting point in NY. She is a joy and pleasure to work with.
Bernie S., Conneticut
We found Katheryn to be extremely professional and attentive. After a few short weeks she found us a beautiful home that exactly matched what we had always hoped for in a home.
Terrence and Shelby N., Warwick
When we relocated to New York from Michigan, we had only two days in which to find a house. At that time, the housing market was quite competitive for buyers. Katheryn spent that entire time with us, showing us homes that met our criteria in terms of features and price. Even under those high pressure conditions, she always displayed the utmost professionalism. She knew the area and the market well and never showed signs of impatience when we wanted to see one more house. She is a very nice person and we enjoyed her company through the whole process. Katheryn made it her business to learn what kind of home we needed by getting to know us. One house in particular, she wanted us to see but we insisted she cancel. After seeing all the others, she suggested we go see it anyway because she felt that it would meet our needs very well. She was right! We ended up purchasing that house and we are delighted with it. Through the rest of the transaction, Katheryn was always available to help in any way she could. We wholeheartedly recommend Katheryn DeClerck to anyone needing a REALTOR.
Brett and Becky L. Middletown
Katheryn DeClerck was the answer to a very difficult property to market in Orange County. She was professional, very attentive to our needs and a true pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate a second to turn to Katheryn again with our needs, nor would I hesitate to recommend her to others. Katheryn epitomizes what REALTORS should be for Orange County and surrounding areas.
Walter B., REO Manager, San Francisco
We were very happy to hae worked with Katheryn. From start to finish she kept us well informed, answered any and all questions and kept a very upbeat and positive attitude towards the home buying process. As buyers, she understood our interest. All the homes that we were shown matched our personalities and budget. We love the home we ended up with. And we can honestly say that buying our first home was very enjoyable experience!
Brian and Alisa L., Campbell Hall
Katheryn DeClerck is a wonderful real estate agent. When we decided to buy a home in Orange County, we realized it was a big step for us coming all the way from Staten Island. We had very little knowledge of all the different towns and their pros and cons. Katheryn was not only informative, but knowledgeable about everything from ranking school districts to the mileage to the nearest grocery store. She listened to what we wanted and found us our home within a few weeks. Katheryn always made herself available for questions through telephone, email and her personal cell phone. Her service also continued after we bought our home. I regularly called with various questions and Katheryn was always available to help. I cannot say enough kind words about Katheryn. The best compliment I can give is the fact that I had a friend interested in moving to Orange County and immediately put him in contact with Katheryn since I knew she would do a great job."
