Kate is a fiery, vivacious Realtor whose goal is to bring authenticity and personal connection to a money-driven industry. After an early career in the public sector and corporate sales, she jumped headfirst into the shark-infested waters of the Washington, DC luxury real estate market, quickly learning the importance of a strong ethical backbone—as well as when and when not to use her teeth.
After making the move to Austin in 2013 Kate shifted her focus to first-time home buyers, helping clients invest intelligently, design uniquely, and turn their purchases into cash-flowing properties. With a strong intuitive ability to read people and spaces, she helps clients find homes that match their unique personality and style, while simultaneously educating and protecting them throughout purchase negotiations.
Kate currently resides in Lockhart and is strategically positioned to help buyers and sellers in Greater Austin and the Lockhart/San Marcos/New Braunfels areas. Cadenza Realty is an active member of Austin Board of Realtors and Four Rivers Association of Realtors.
‟Kate just helped us close on a house this Monday after a two month search and there is nothing I can write that will adequately express how great the experience was. Although my husband and I initially worked with Henry, who's awesome, we ended up doing most of our work with Kate. Kate is super cool-someone who is so fun to be around that it made h … ouse hunting even more fun. I'm also very anti-fake salespeople and I appreciate how genuine and non-pushy Kate was. What she told us was "I'm not going to pressure you one way or the other, when you find the house you love you'll know." As first-time homebuyers we couldn't have asked for a better and more trustworthy person to work with. Even better-Kate got us a few thousand off the purchase price and the sellers to pay the closing costs-on a house that was 3 days on the market! If that's not epic I don't know what is. In sum, if you are looking for a home and don't go to Kate you are just dumb” Read More ▾
‟Kate was awesome! Right off the bat she was dedicated to helping my friend and I find our ideal place to rent. Very responsive, honest, helpful and most importantly- straight up with us. In the next couple years when I am ready to buy a house if in Austin I would absolutely hire Kate and if not in Austin, would definitely seek a realtor out like he … r” Read More ▾
‟I have had the privilege of working alongside Kate and she's the best. Kate's natural enthusiasm to go the extra mile for her clients is noticeable from the first minute you sit down with her. She is an expert negotiator and has a superior knowledge of Austin's highly competitive market. Kate's refreshing ability to listen, support and ultimately h … elp plan a strategy for her buyers and sellers to accomplish their goals is not only empowering to her clients but gives them a feeling that they have a friend in the fight as well.

‟Katelyn is a superheroine, who is dedicated to making the mysterious process of finding a home (or apartment) easy-peasy. In other words, she's an astonishing realtor! Furthermore, she's super personable, knowledgeable, extremely helpful, and gets the job done. I highly recommend her to anyone, especially those who are new to the Austin area.”
‟Steph and Kate are top notch agents. They are able to move VERY quickly which is paramount when looking to buy in Austin. Steph helped me get under contract within an hour of a listing being posted, in my ideal neighborhood, for $25k below market! As of that isn't enough of a miracle in this Austin market, Steph then helped me negotiate for $7k in … seller concessions! I was amazed at her responsiveness and very appreciative of the fact that she always kept me in the loop. I looked at over 20 houses and there was only one showing Steph wasn't able to make within an hour. And when that happened, Kate was right there! It's like getting the best of two agents when you work with them. It's amazing, and you never have to worry about losing out on a house because you (or your agent!) weren't fast enough. Very knowledgeable of the Austin market and are very investor friendly. Looking forward to working with them on the next purchase” Read More ▾
‟Kate is an exceptional realtor! During my search for a home she was extremely attentive to my wants and needs and very honest. I've always been skeptical of realtors because I've felt they were too pushy and mostly out for themselves. This is NOT the case with Kate. I felt unbelievably comfortable with her and completely trusted her guidance, not t … oo mention she is so fun to be around! I highly recommend Kate to anyone and everyone” Read More ▾
‟KATE IS THE BEST. She worked tirelessly and gave such quality real estate advice. Kate is extremely trustworthy and is invested in whatever is best for her clients. She made me feel so comfortable to ask her questions and be anxious (as buying a house is a big deal!). I really appreciated her level of expertise and how good she is at her job. My co … ntract was complicated and time-consuming and she nailed every negotiation and was there in every time-sensitive situation. I have aggressively referred her to all of my home-buying friends (who are now happy homeowners thanks to Kate) and I implore you to look no further” Read More ▾
