"I want all to know Kathleen is the greatest real estate person I have ever dealt with. Honest, sincere, hard-working, and just a great human being. If you need to buy or sell property on Kiawah Island make sure you meet with her."
"I wanted to thank you for your help with the sale and providing direction last year to help to understand the options available and then working this year to get the final pre-sale items repaired. Your help with the other Realtor to get the price right was key and I was happy that the sale did not stall after the initial loan issues. I'm sure there was a lot of background work to make it happen. One thing that was really important at the beginning was to feel like you cared and were interested in providing extra to get the sale done, which you did. And thanks so much for gathering the miscellaneous things and sending them on at no cost. I really did not expect that at all."
Nancy & Rob
"Thanks again for your superior job representing us in the sale of this property. It's hard to give up the villa, but we're glad it's going to people who are excited to be there!"

"I contacted an old college friend months ago who is a property manager in Charleston in search of a trusted, reliable agent who could guide us from 800 miles afar, and what I received was a top-selling agent who exceeded our expectations in every manner possible. From the beginning, Kathleen sent us links and listings, answered all of our questions ad nauseum, and educated us on all the details - i.e. regimes, comps, packages, privileges, cost of ownership, rental income, management companies. These were of utmost importance to us because of our far proximity from the property. Months later, my husband and I were finally able to take a trip down to view the properties that we were interested in. Kathleen took the time after normal business hours to show us all of our properties of interest, coordinated with other agents and renters, and truly educated us on our options - i.e. proximity from the beach vs size of property as well as location as it pertains to new development on the island. Just a few days after we returned home, we made a formal offer on the property that we had our sights set on from the very beginning. Kathleen spearheaded a negotiation that still amazes me - all because of her experience in the industry. From that point, she guided us step by step with a tried-and-true inspector, mortgage company, H0-6 insurance company, and an attorney who all made this process seamless. Each person along this journey had more historical accolades to share about her which even further raised our confidence in her. She was always prompt and followed through with each detail. Our communication was fluid at all times. Kathleen included her southern charm and hospitality in the package which always made us feel like her family."

"Even though we've already spoken and I'm pretty sure you know how much I enjoyed working with you as well, I just want to say again how delighted I am to have chosen you as my realtor. I knew from the moment we first spoke that you were the one for me. You made a long and challenging process as enjoyable as it could possibly be. You handled the entire process as a true consummate professional who rose to the occasion on our behalf at every opportunity. I know that you took on the lion's share of making sure everything was taken care of toward getting us to closing, so just know that all of that effort is recognized and most appreciated."
"Thanks for everything! The closing seems to have gone smoothly. We will be using your firm to find rentals as we plan to visit your beautiful area often."
"I've worked with Kathleen for the last 13 years and I can honestly say she is one of the hardest working individuals I've met. Her knowledge of the local market is truly unmatched. Kathleen is truly a real estate professional."
"My husband & I were first time home owners in our late 30's. We were scared to commit to a home because we moved around so much. When we went to see our house, we knew it was the one as soon as we walked in. We asked Kathleen's advice about resell in the future. She discussed with us that there shouldn't be an issue to sell down the line if we needed to. Well, guess what? 14 months later we were moving out of our first house & relocating again. We listed our house with Kathleen & we were under contract in 3 weeks. She is an amazing person inside & out."
"Kathleen is super organized, energetic, knowledgeable and truly cares about her clients. She managed our rental property on Kiawah and we were extremely happy with her. We would hire her as our realtor in a heartbeat!"
"We love Kathleen!!! She helped my hubby and I find our beautiful new home! As first time home buyers, I'm sure we were a pain with all of our questions and hesitations but Kathleen was phenomenal! So patient and such a pleasure to work with! Would recommend her ALL DAY!!!"
"Big thanks to Kathleen who sold my home for ABOVE asking price and under 2 months! I highly recommend her and her agency."
Bob & Carol
"Thank you for your hard work. We enjoyed working with you and appreciate your professional way of doing business. Would recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell Real Estate."
Stan & Kim L. - Kiawah Island, SC
"You actually "went live" with our listing on October 16, 2014, and we had a completed, signed and accepted contract on November 1, 2014. That is remarkable and greatly appreciated. We were supremely impressed with your constant contact and follow-up on questions that the buyers posed regarding the purchase, the Tennis Club Regime and Kiawah itself. Your attention to detail, your knowledge of the Island and your desire to be completely professional resulted in a successful transaction wherein the buyer, seller, yourself and Akers Ellis all won. Thank you so very much and we wish you continued success."
Kim A. - Kiawah Island, SC

Jerald & Leslie H. - Charleston, SC
"Kathleen listed our home on a Friday morning, had two showing requests within hours for that weekend, and received an offer on Sunday evening. She was fantastic and professional throughout the entire process - from listing to inspection to closing. We highly recommend her and appreciate her dedicated service!"
Bill & Doreen L. - New Jersey
"We really enjoyed working with Kathleen. She is extremely pleasant, responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful. She has made this process very enjoyable."
Stefan & Lauren P.
"Working with Kathleen was amazing. She is communicative, responsive, honest, knowledgeable, and motivated. Once she knew what we were looking for, she sought out potential listings to meet our needs and found the perfect place for us. Even after closing, she was immensely helpful with preparing our property for move-in. She truly goes above and beyond what any other realtor has done. I can't recommend her highly enough. We are so grateful to Kathleen for everything. It's been the easiest and smoothest real estate transaction that we've ever had."
Karen L. - Kiawah Island, SC
"I wanted to thank you for your time and also say that I have spent innumerable hours with several agents and I think you are top notch. This is a great profession for you; you bring the perfect blend of personality, in-depth knowledge, and customer service that sets a great agent apart from the large crowd of which you are a part."
Jane & Mike - Kiawah Island
"You have been an absolute pleasure to work with and have made the selling process so easy from start to finish. A simple thank you doesn’t seem to be enough to recognize all you have done for us. Your professionalism, generosity, knowledge and helpfulness has been beyond measure. Thank you, Kathleen! Akers Ellis sure is lucky to have someone in your calibre to represent them in the real estate community!"
