Client Accolades

“Katy Smith gave me sound, professional guidance at every turn during the sale of my house. As I was preparing to sell my long-time home, she kept me focused on tasks that would make a difference to the sale. Her advice was spot-on and the sale of my house was swift. The offers that rolled in surprised me both in quantity and value. Katy has excellent real estate instincts and is extremely responsive. She exceeded all my expectations and has earned my business as well as the highest recommendation I can provide. Katy knows what people want and how to sell a house!”

“I met Kathy several years ago through a mutual friend and we hit it off right away. She has a heart of gold, kindness to a fault and a wonderful laugh and is very professional. I knew back then when the time came to sell my mom’s house that I would be contacting Kathy to be my Realtor. My mom lived to be 100 and that time came. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her expertise. She was on top of things from day one and included me on everything that was going this all works....and responded to all my emails, calls and texts asap. She explained all the terms etc that I didn't quite understand and was patient. She worked very hard to find a buyer as my mother’s 1955 house was "unique". A truly good person and Realtor. Thank you, Kathy Schneider!”


“I met Katy at the YMCA. She was teaching a swimming class I signed up for. She saw the tattoo of a microphone on my arm and sent me a song she worked on. I noticed she was a real estate agent and I was thinking of purchasing a home. I asked her what I should do to get started. Katy helped me every step of the way during the process of purchasing my home. Even after the sale, I've called Katy regarding home problems and she is always willing to help. It's nice to know there are genuine people out there who really care about their clients. Katy is a beautiful person with a beautiful spirit and I'm glad to call her a friend.”

“Thank you, Katy, for all your help selling my parents' home. Your knowledge of the market and your sincere and gracious attitude during the process made this difficult time so much easier for me and my family. You gave us ideas to make the home look amazing and let us know the market value of the house so we could sell it quickly. We had never gone through this process before, and your guidance and explanations made it so easy. We appreciate your kindness, your attention to detail and the excellent service you provided. I will be sure to recommend you to all my friends and family. You're one of a kind, Katy Smith -- a true real estate jewel.”

“It was our dream to own a house one day. Katy made the process straightforward from beginning to end, and she helped us find the perfect home. It's been three years and we love our home even more now than when we purchased it. Thank you, Katy!”

“Working with Katy for the past few years as a referral business partner has been a privilege and an honor. Her professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge of real estate practices are amazing. Anyone looking for real estate services would be lucky to have her as their agent.”

“It has been an amazing experience working with Katy as a broker-stager team! I have personally known Katy for more than 20 years and we have established a business relationship. Katy is personable, kind, genuinely caring, and helps her clients in many ways. You will be well served hiring Katy for all your real estate needs!”

“Outstanding knowledge of the real estate market in our community. Hardest working agent we've ever dealt with. Reliable, professional and diligent best describes your work ethic. She makes sales happen.”


“Kathy is a true professional. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and especially the Jubilee community in Lacey. She is empathetic to the needs of both buyer and seller and kept in touch with us continuously throughout the process. She follows up on details and has a network of great referrals--especially for financing. If we were to buy, sell or refer someone she would be the one we would call on. She's the best!!”


“Our experience with Kathy selling our former home and helping us to buy our current home was unequivocally the best. Kathy’s attention to detail, personal service, and depth of experience made both transactions smooth and even pleasant (and both of us have had less than optimal experiences with realtors). Even though she is busy, she’s never too busy to update her clients by phone, text, or email—or to be right there if you need her! There’s a reason she’s the top realtor in our area—if you want to sell, or have the best agent look out for your interests as a buyer, get Kathy to represent you!”

Buyer & Seller

“We recently purchased a home in the South Sound and were blessed to have found Kathy Schneider to represent us. Kathy brings an abundance of admirable qualities to the process. First, as the process was unfolding, we were quick to recognize that Kathy Schneider is a realtor of integrity. We found this to be reassuring, as there are so many layers to buying a house that my wife and I needed to rely on Kathy for all the information, without worrying about the potential for self-serving interests. She served, not only as our realtor, but also our home-buying coach. It was clear, from the onset, that Kathy Schneider would always be in our corner. Kathy's knowledge of the local real estate market was a huge plus. Her familiarity with the community we were targeting was not only born from having sold homes in Jubilee from the get-go, but also influenced by Kathy having lived in the community. It seemed that everyone we spoke with, knew Kathy and held her in high regard. This is how we learned of Kathy's stellar reputation as a realtor, in the first place. Kathy is an excellent communicator. Whenever questions arose, Kathy's responses were always timely and her explanations thorough. Further, she encouraged us, throughout the process, to continue reaching out to her at any time. This posture was positively reinforced by Kathy's patience, knowledge, and warmth as she deftly guided us from one phase to the next. It is with great confidence that I would recommend Kathy Schneider to anyone looking to purchase, or sell, a home in the Puget Sound Area.”
