The best! Super big thank you to Kathy Schaumbuger for her amazing negotiating skills to get us a great price and overcoming a multitude of obstacles. Her professionalism when handling the closing and suggesting options were top notch.
Kathy assisted us as a buyer's agent on our recent purchase of a two unit investment property in Plymouth. She was very responsive throughout the process and did an amazing job helping us during the initial negotiations and subsequently after the inspection identified some potential issues. She continued to follow-up until our closing date and took care of some issues while we were out of town. I would highly recommend Kathy if you are buying or selling in the Plymouth/Canton area.
I would definitely recommend Kathy for anyone looking to buy a house! This was my first time buying a home and she helped make it such a positive experience. She offered me excellent advice, answered all of my questions right away, and helped me make informed decisions. Kathy is honest and upfront and kept me informed through every step of the process. I couldn't have asked for a better agent!
Kathy was great! As a first time home buyer, she helped me through the entire process and made it easy for me to understand everything. She offered advice whenever I needed it, yet every descision was completely mine, and I never felt pressure to go one way or another. It was a great experience, and I would call Kathy in a heartbeat if I needed realtor services again.
As a first time home buyer, I could not have asked for a better experience than I had with Kathy. After going through the process for the first time, I have concluded that having a top notch realtor makes all the difference in the world. The entire experience was virtually seamless and I owe most of it to Kathy's knowledge and personalized attention to detail. Using much of her keen advice, I was able to assemble a phenomenal team from the mortgage lender to the inspector. Everything happened in a timely and professional manner, and I learned a ton throughout the process. I would absolutely recommend Kathy Schaumburger to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Kathy did an amazing job of marketing and selling our home. As soon as we decided to list, she got everything ready, helped us stage for pictures, put together a wonderful marketing piece, and made the right calls to other agents. We had offers in one week and we were extremely pleased. She was very professional all the way through the process and communicated very effectively.
Being that we were moving back to SE Michigan and having been gone for 10 years, we were looking for a realtor that was knowledgeable about the area that we were looking in (Plymouth - Canton). We found Kathy to be extremely knowledgeable about the market. Her experience really showed and was honest and trustworthy throughout the entire home buying process. I would highly recommend Kathy when looking for a home.
Kathy is knowledgeable and helpful. She helped us find a condo and sell our house in record time! She was always available to show us a property and would meet us there promptly. We highly recommend her!
Kathy was great and super easy to work with. She really helped my through the process of buying my first house. I felt confident in my purchase with Kathy’s advice and helped me out in my time sensitive home purchase.
Kathy made selling my place easy. Really the whole process was much less stressful then it could have been. To start, she was able to tell me little things to fix around the place that clearly made it present better. Then when she came in and staged the place, I almost didn't want to sell at that point because of how good it looked!
Every question I had regarding how much to sell the place for, to how to handle offers that came in to maximize the sale, she had an answer, and a logical reason for why she would do it that way. Whether you're buying or selling you Kathy is simply the best.
Kathy is extremely knowledgeable as well as passionate in her field. She is dedicated to her clients and gives her honest advice in order to make sure her clients get the best deal possible.
All I can say is Kathy is fantastic!! She is very knowledgeable and passionate at what she does. She takes her time to explain everything in detail. A situation that could have been very stressful ended up being a breeze. She told us when we listed the house that it would probably sell in 4 days.. she was right!! I will be recommending Kathy to everyone I know!
Kathy sold our home in Glengarry Village in Canton in one day for over asking price. She has all the highest sell prices in the neighborhood. You’re out of your mind if you used anyone but Kathy. Knows the Canton and surrounding areas like the back of her hand. Fantastic agent! So professional and responsive. A+++. Don’t blow it. Hire Kathy!
Very Patient and Awesome to Work With!
Moved from Illinois and Kathy went above and beyond to help us with the transition. Very helpful and knowledgeable with placing offers and counter-offers.
Kathy was amazing to work with. I think she was more excited for me than I was! She made the process smooth and painless. She helped me through it all from beginning to end.
You can tell Kathy loves her job because she goes above and beyond with every aspect! I have both bought and sold homes using Kathy as my realtor and she has exceeded my expectations every time. The major thing that puts her above other realtors is she is an expert at maximizing the value of your home, especially when it comes time to sell!
Kathy outlined the game plan for the sale of our current home and purchase of our new home perfectly!! Her expertise of the local market, contacts with local lenders, and her negotiating techniques were integral for a smooth sale and purchase! Wonderful experience!
Kathy was the best! As first time home buyers we were extremely naive regarding the process, Kathy walked us through every step and helped us feel completely at ease. She made herself very accessible and answered every question we had, no matter how ridiculous! She even helped us through loan drama and charmed our crazy toddler!
THIS IS YOUR AGENT!
I can't speak enough to the passionate dedication and support that Kathy provide us during our house hunt this year. After discussing our wants and needs she took us through the rocky landscape of house hunting with ease weeding through countless homes (saving us SO much work) to assist us in finding the home that would exceed our expectations within our budget. Her knowledge of the area and ability to negotiate an absolutely top notch offer was without doubt how we won the the house that we feel in love with. We were first timers to the Plymouth/Canton and can't imagine selecting a home without her mastery of the local school districts, subdivisions, local attractions, and proximity to all the areas that make Plymouth and Canton great. Kathy is the absolute best and without question our go to agent when any asks!
Recently Kathy helped me and sold my Canton house in Glengarry. Because I am living in Chicago, I heavily relied on local agent to take care every process and details from negotiation, hire different professionals to remodel the house until lawn care, everything.
Kathy even moved some furniture in to decorate my empty house and we were kind of WOW when we saw the pictures, it looks like a model house!
Kathy is very efficient and professional, house was sold in one month.
Kathy is Very Knowledgeable, Professional real state agent. She was involved in all steps. She follow through and walks extra mile and offer extraordinary service. We were Very Happy with her understanding of Market. She even helped us remodel our home.
As a first time home buyer I could not have asked for a better buying experience and accredited this to the expertise provided by Kathy, who worked with me directly to walk through each step of the process. Kathy brought to the table a great combination of experience and market knowledge along with a friendly, personable attitude.
Her know-how and willingness to pursue my selected home not only made the buying process very easy but also exceptionally quick. We ended up finding the perfect home (not an exaggeration) and closing on it within a matter of weeks, even moving the closing date up a week as preparations went very smoothly.
After working with Kathy I can see why my friend recommended her to me; her quick response, capability, and demeanor made a potentially stressful investment straightforward. Kathy will likewise be my personal recommendation to anyone else looking for a home well into the future.
5 star care and service across the board. Local knowledge, expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills. Moving can be a stressful time. Kathy kept my mind at ease and just took care of the details allowing me to focus and get organized in preparation for the move. What ever needed to be done Kathy handled it with confidence and a smile.
Kathy treats you like family!
..... actually she treats you way better than family. Family gives you grief and makes you wait on them.... Kathy's nice and is usually on time (OK, one time she was a little late... but she made up for it by bringing coffee)....
More to the point, she really knows her craft. She can and will help you navigate the process of finding and buying a home. From placing offers, to inspections to the closing process, she always seem to have the right answer.
Couldn't have been smoother.
Kathy did an absolutely outstanding job as a buyer's agent for my wife and me during our recent housing search. We were looking to purchase in a very competitive price range during some of the busiest listing months in a hot market, which meant that we had to be very strategic in our search in addition to a high volume of walk-throughs.
Like any couple, we had our share of must-haves and deal-breakers, and a relatively limited geographic area within which to search based on our different commutes to work. Kathy had a great knowledge of the area we were looking in, and she had excellent advice on neighborhoods to both target and avoid based on our preferences.
She gave sound advice that was spot-on from the very start, and never once in the process did she give even the slightest hint that she was anything other than 100% invested in making sure we were thrilled with the home we found. My wife and I had our share of stressful moments wondering if we would find the right place, and having an advocate and professional like Kathy at our side made the housing search fun when it could have been frustrating.
Kathy is amazing! She went with us to many, many houses until we found the perfect one. Not for a second we had the feeling that she was annoyed nor she ever pressured us to get a house just so she could close a deal. She was very honest through the whole process and is very fast in her communication.
I sold my house through Kathy. I kick-started the selling process about 6 months prior to the house being on the market. As such, Kathy's involvement was a lot more extensive than a normal sale.
She gave me a price comp at the start, and an extensive review from top to bottom of my home, and listed both its strength and weaknesses, as well as a set of recommendations of what I can do to make the property competitive working on a fixed budget. From paint schemes, flooring, windows treatment, ceiling fixtures, railings, fireplaces, to bathrooms, Kathy was a walking encyclopedia of modern trends, what potential buyers were looking for.
Kathy's services wasn't just in consulting and sales. She ended up staging the house and sitting through an open house instead of farming that job out. It was a full service operation, and I was very impressed with her expertise.
In terms of remodeling, I ended up spending about $8K on updates to make it competitive with the hope of getting some of it back in sale.
With Kathy's help, I had ~40 families walking through our modest house in Canton during Saturday's open house. I ended up getting 6 offers and selling the house above asking in 3 days.
I ended recouping my modeling costs and had gains several times over.
The story should have ended there, but the house had an issue during inspection and Kathy was there to guide us through what needed fixing and how to resolve the issues.
I couldn't be happier with Kathy's expertise and involvement. Without her help, the selling of my house wouldn't have been as smooth. If I have to buy or sell another house down the road, I would, without doubt, pick Kathy again. Thanks Kathy.
Kathy was very helpful and easy to work with. This was my first home purchase and her knowledge and expertise made the home buying process seamless. Overall I had a great experience and would highly recommend Kathy if you are purchasing a home and looking for a realtor.
Kathy worked with us as our sellers agent when we were selling our house in Canton. Our house needed some painting and some staging in order to prepare it for sale. Kathy took care of all of the arrangements - lining up the painters, getting carpet cleaners to the house, etc. She has impeccable taste and the staging was top notch. We had over 20 private showings requested within 24 hours of listing, in addition to a very successful open house. We had 7 offers to choose from within three days. She oversaw every detail, kept us informed, and made the process very easy for us. She also went out of her way to help ensure the appraisal was where we needed it to be, by doing the legwork to pull together additional comps that wouldn't have been considered otherwise. I cannot speak highly enough about Kathy's hard work and professionalism to deliver the results that we needed, in a very short timeframe.
We could not have been happier with Kathy's work as our buyer's agent. She found us a home that fit our exact needs, created a good rapport with the selling agent, used comps to negotiate the sale below asking price and kept us informed at every step of the transaction. There were absolutely no surprises along the way, and I totally credit her work for that. Very highly recommend her!
I worked with Kathy to purchase my new home. Kathy took the time to asked questions to determine what we were looking for in a home. Her knowledge of the area was key in our search. She assessed the home with us and used her strong negotiation skills to finalize our purchase. It was a great experience and I would recommend Kathy if you are looking to purchase or sell your home.
Relocating from Dubai, UAE to Michigan has been a very pleasant experience thanks to Kathy Schaumburger. She is very well rounded and understand the cultures and needs of people who lived overseas many years. I have worked on automotive industry all my career and had to move multiple times; between states and countries. We have dealt with many realtors but none of them compares to Kathy. She focuses on what we need rather than what she wants to show us. Her negotiation skills are excellent but she is also very fair! She knows the Southeast Michigan area very well and I have already recommended her to several of my colleagues who are in the process of moving back to Michigan.
Could not have asked for a better experience in selling our home. Kathy is a true professional. She has strong communication skills and was available to answer all our questions. Her knowledge of the market was key, as we moved through the selling process. She had excellent negotiation skills and we were able to move through the selling process and close on our home.
Kathy was outstanding to work with. She was great with communication and availability. As a first time investor, she guided me through the searching, offering and closing processes. Kathy was exceptional at communicating between myself and the listing agent.
She handled obtaining all the necessary property information which enabled me to make an informed decision on my offer. I highly recommend Kathy, and plan to work with her again.
I was referred to Kathy by a friend when relocating to the Detroit area. She was a pleasure to work with and took the time to really find the perfect neighborhood and home to suit my needs. Since she has lived in the Detroit Metro area her entire life, she knows where the best schools are , the up and coming areas, and the housing market. Also, she is a true professional - a great listener, skillful negotiator, and trustworthy! I have moved many times and worked with many Real Estate agents and this has been the best experience I have had! I would definitely recommend calling Kathy if you are buying or selling - She is one of the best in the business!
Where do I even start?! Kathy is the most professional, honest, and unselfish realtor I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Kathy went above and beyond what I expected to land me my dream home. She kept me up to date with every step in the process and explained each one thoroughly. Kathy made buying my fist home a breeze! HIGHLY recommend!
Kathy very professionally explained the listing process and her marketing strategy for my property.
It was sold faster and for more money then expected.
Anyone looking for a real estate agent should stop looking and call Kathy Schaumburger. I cannot make a stronger recommendation. Her attention to detail, passion, and overall customer service, shine through in every aspect of what she does. She continually went out of her way to make sure that I was up to speed on every step in the process. She clearly communicated listing strategies, upcoming showings, the open houses, potential buyers, and followed everything right on through to the closing .
My house was empty while being listed/sold. Kathy went out of her way to take furniture, plants, etc., over to the house on her own so that it would be \u201Cstaged\u201D for the listing photo shoot and for all of the showings. This is going above and beyond anything that I would have ever expected. Within the first few days we had 20 showings, and multiple offers. I could not have asked for a faster or smoother sale.
Kathy has earned all of my future business. Do yourself a favor and give her yours.
Kathy was instrumental in the process of purchasing our first home. Her experience is clear when she delivered the best offer, out of 12, for a house that was only on the market 2 days. Not only is Kathy knowledgeable she is also kind-hearted who truly works with her clients needs in mind. She had a very positive attitude and goes the extra mile to stay in front of the competition. If you awesome service with no pressure, then contact Kathy!
Kathy was incredible. She made the entire process as stress free as possible. She was there for us from start to finish. I would highly recommend Kathy to any person interested in buying or selling a house. She is a great negotiator and she truly has your best interest at heart. If you’re looking for a Real Estate Agent you have a winner with Kathy. Simply stated - she will deliver.
We love working with Kathy! She is super professional, fun, and knows her stuff. We're looking in the Farmington Hills, Novi, Northville area and she is very knowledgeable. Love that she regularly sends neighborhood reports. Buying a house can be daunting - definitely recommend working with her!
This was my 2nd home buying process and I am deeply appreciated for Kathy's help in finding us the right home. We needed to move out of the 2bdr condo as a growing family but I feel we did not really know what we want in the beginning - My wife is a typical "maximizer" and this adds extra complexity / drama in our house hunting process.
However, Kathy quickly understood our core needs and took us through the extensive house hunting project from April all the way to Sep. We probably checked 30 houses or so, but Kathy always kept her high professionalism and always put our needs at priority.
Finally the perfect house surfaced, Kathy got us as the first visitor to check the house (20 minutes after the house went online), we know the house is in hot demand and she made great proposal in the offering strategy. We followed her proposal and bought the home with a price within our expectation!
I have dealt with many agents in the past two years in Detroit area and Kathy is by far the best agent I have ever seen - professional, helpful and super easy&fun to work with. I recommend Kathy to any home buyers, she will help you as she helped us.
Kathy Schaumburger was wonderful to work with! She responded to calls, text, and emails right away. She helped us sell our condo and buy our first house. She guided us through both selling and buying. We'd recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
Kathy helped us purchase our new home and is now in the process of listing our current house. She has provided a thorough analysis of the neighborhoods and the related pricing has helped us understand what is reasonable. Her suggestions have been very helpful to prepare our house to show and sell quickly at the best pricing. She is always very quick to respond back to texts and phone calls. I highly recommend her for both purchasing a new home and selling your current home.
Had a great time looking for homes! Kathy made is fun and easy to pick the right one for me. All while give great tips to how I could upgrade and decorate. Very knowledgeable on house and condo sales.
