Kathy’s knowledge, professionalism, and work ethic are exceptional. She is detail oriented, always responsive, and cares about her clients, putting their needs above her own. We would never think of using anyone else and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Kathy Olmstead is a realtor like no other. In helping my husband and me sell our last home and buy our current home, she rolled up her sleeves on day one and went above and beyond what any other real estate agent would have done. She worked tirelessly to help us get our former home ready for market and did an outstanding job finding, negotiating, and closing on our new home.
Kathy Olmstead has been our family’s real estate agent since we moved to Atlanta in 1999. With her help, we’ve bought and sold multiple homes over the last 20 years. From the beginning, we knew we were in great hands with Kathy. As a native of Atlanta and a parent who raised her family in Atlanta, Kathy knows everything there is to know about the neighborhoods and schools in Atlanta and the surrounding areas. This knowledge was so helpful for us when we first moved here with a new baby and wanted to settle in a family- friendly neighborhood with great schools. The second house we purchased with Kathy’s help was a short sale. Kathy handled that tricky transaction without a hitch and got us into the house of our dreams. When my in-laws wanted to buy in the area, the only person they would consider to help them house shop was Kathy. We love Kathy! She treats her clients like family, and we consider her a part of our family.
