Helping you Home!
Get to know Kathryn Hoffman
In her 23rd year of working in the real estate industry, Kathryn provides her clients with exceptional customer service, attention to detail along with extensive knowledge of real estate and current market conditions. Kathryn has helped clients purchase & sell homes in the western suburbs of Chicago-focusing on the communities located in DuPage, North Will, and Eastern Kane and Kendall counties. “I have a passion for helping people. I can’t imagine a happier moment than when I help a person or family move forward in their plans to buy or sell. My client's best interest is my highest priority."
Kathryn holds the designation of an Accredited Buyers Representative (A.B.R.) as well as a Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (G.R.I.) & the prestigious designation of a Certified Residential Specialist (C.R.S.). Only 4% of Realtors across the county have earned the C.R.S. designation. She also is C.N.E.- Certified Negotiation Expert & the Five Star Award since 2012.
Another specialty is the S.R.E.S. designation- Senior Real Estate Specialist, for the growing market of homeowners deciding to downsize from their home of many years. Kathryn is connected to a referral system of support for the transition to a new lifestyle, including resources for de-cluttering, sale or donation of household furniture and housewares, and tips for getting your home ready to be presented to the current market of homebuyers. "It can be overwhelming to know where to start when preparing to downsize. I can help with that first step."
The 1st time home buyer is also a focus of Kathryn’s expertise. “Taking time to thoroughly explain the buying process, including the importance of obtaining a mortgage pre-approval, discussing the ins and outs of negotiating a home purchase, and successfully getting to closing day involve many steps.
"The Real Estate market is an ever changing and evolving situation. I want to answer any questions until my clients are comfortable with their decision.”
Let me help you navigate the world of Real Estate. It can be confusing as there's almost "too much" information out there on the internet. Did you know that buying and selling a home can differ from state to state? Maybe you did, but do you realize each community can have differing laws and procedures to buy and sell within each state?
I specialize in residential real estate and have specialties in assisting the senior market move forward in their next stage of life as well as loving my first time home buyers!
Im looking forward to hearing from you.
Testimonials for Kathryn Hoffman
Dr. Erin O'Connor and Dr/ Paul Nottoli08/16/2015
"Kathryn was awesome to work with in our first home buying experience. She went above and beyond our expectations. She was very knowledgable and kept us up to date with all the steps in the home buying process. Her responses to any questions we had or meetings we needed to set up were extremely prompt, even on weekends. We liked how she was able to send us homes to look at online to then choose to view in person. We started viewing houses mid-June, viewed about 10-12 in person over 2 different days, put an offer on one we really liked, and moved into our new house at the end of July. I knew we would enjoy working with her, but she really made the process easy, understandable, and stress free.... and we love our new house! I highly recommend her if you are a first time home buyer like me. Thanks, Kathryn!"
