When we decided to place our Lakewood-Balmoral home for sale we interviewed three real estate sales agents/firms to understand how they would propose to market our unique property. Of the three, Kathy Murphy of Baird & Warner stood out as the most skilled and prepared to successfully market and sell our home for us.
Ms. Murphy defined a clear and unique strategy and outlined a thorough plan and timeline to prepare our home for sale. In addition she proposed to target market it to a selective list of prospective clients. Further, she developed a detailed comparative property analysis to guide us in settling on an appropriate listing price point.
As a result, our home quickly received multiple cash offers and was sold within a very short timeframe.
Without reservation we highly recommend Kathy Murphy of Baird & Warner to any homeowner contemplating the sale of their property.
Kathy's professionalism is enhanced by her winning personality.

I had the pleasure of working with Kathy on the sale of my existing home and purchasing a new one. Kathy is immensely knowledgeable about the market and what needs to be done to sell. She even personally helped me stage my home to get it ready for sale.
She also is an extremely effective, patient and crafty buyer's agent. She showed me listings that were exactly what I was seeking and in my price range and proved to be a very effective negotiator.
I'd highly recommend Kathy .

We were so fortunate that Kathy was the agent that recommended to us when we moved to Chicago. She is teriffic! She helped us find a home in an unfamiliar city that worked perfectly for us. She was informative about the different neighborhoods and extremely patient as we looked at houses in different areas. She guided us through the buying process and everything went smoothly.
She was so great in fact that when it came time to move from Chicago, we chose Kathy to be our selling agent. She was successful and persevered in a tough economy, giving us great suggestions that helped us sell our home.
We'd highly recommend Kathy! She is extremely knowledgeable, honest, patient, and a savvy agent.
Kathy - thank you so much for all you work, help, support over the past year as we went through the sale of our 2-flat in Lakeview You are a pleasure to work with! Thanks for everything.

Please accept this letter as a recommendation and a sincere thank you for your efforts in selling our townhome in Sauganash Village. Your advice, patience and persistence in guiding us thorough the marketing, selling and closing transactions were appreciated. So many other real estate brokers that wanted to represent us were adamant in following a "Filene Basement
You exercised patience and worked with us to sell the value of our home, the benefits of living in the Sauganash area and found us a qualified buyer. We are currently enjoying our retirement and, in part, because of your efforts this retirement is more financially secure.
