None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Kathy seemed nice, but told us she would not be able to help us because our price point was too low. I even told her we are cash buyers, but that didn't matter. We've moved all over the U.S. with the Air Force and we've never been told that by a realtor before. I hope this type of bias is not common in our new city.

Helped me buy home
Kathy Kane is an EXCEPTIONAL realtor. She went above and beyond for us when we were purchasing our home. We bought our home as the housing market was crashing and it was nothing short of a miracle that it worked out. I know that it worked out because of Kathy. We were in constant contact with Kathy and she was an advocate for us. She has a strong knowledge base of the region. She is a master carpenter and knows a quality home when she see's it. (or doesn't see it) She has since helped numerous friends and family purchase homes. We highly recommend her to anyone in the market. I will never buy or sell a house without Kathy Kane! Less ...

If you are looking for a great buy and a great home in the Asheville area I highly recommend working with Kathy. Two years ago my fiance and I began our home search. Kathy made herself very available to us with analyzing our needs and making many trips to view homes all over the Asheville area. Kathy often knew just the right questions to ask to narrow our search and make it more effective. We could not have been more pleased with the deal we got on our lovely home in Haw Creek. We have lived in our home since November 2010, and we love it dearly. We are forever thankful for Kathy's hard work and guidance in our process. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
We were first-time home-buyers, entirely new to the process. We were expecting our second child, and had a list of very specific needs (3 BRM, hardwood floors, big backyard, workshop, etc). A friend had recommended Kathy to us. She called me within 5 minutes after I first emailed her,and got to working on finding our house immediately. She offered us expert guidance the entire way. She was phenomenal throughout the entire process, communicated regularly with our sellers' agent, helped us locate inspection professionals, guided us through the due diligence process, explained legal paperwork, etc. She is a formidable researcher, knows the market, knows the area. She found us a home in our price range that met every specification we wanted. She always made us feel like we were her number one priority. You will not find another realtor who will work as hard for you as Kathy does. She also has a great sense of humor and great perspective, which helps! Wonderful to work with!!!! Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We met Kathy Kane in the spring of 2006 when looking for a house to use as a rental property. Kathy's in-depth knowledge of the Ashevill real estate market and local builders (she built a house herself, by the way) helped us buy the "perfect" home in the mountains. We listed the property with Kathy and sold it in 2011. However, Kathy's services did not just begin and end with these buy and sell transactions. During the period that the house was rented out, Kathy provided me with valuable connections with her network of local business contacts (plumbers, electricians, landscaping and other services) that allowed me to manage the property while I lived out of the state. I also know that she "kept and eye on it" from time to time. When we finally decided to sell the property, Kathy had good recommendations on what to do to make it as attactive as possible while taking into account my financial limitations at the time. She negotiated the deal that finally sold the house, and her knowledge of the R/E market (and some of her fellow agents) proved to be invaluable. She is trustworthy, reliable, energetic, sincere, friendly, and too many other positive adjectives to list here. We would highly recommend her. Less ... More

This was a very difficult sale with Kathy representing the seller. It was an 11,000 sq foot property on 10 acres which I had run as a bed and breakfrast. It could have been a commercial sale; it could have been a residential sale. And to make it more difficult I was divorced during the process. It was clear that this was not Kathy's first rodeo.

Once in a while you meet someone who changes your life. Kathy Kane, our real estate broker, appeared in our lives & worked 7 days a week, until all hours of the night (as she does for everyone), for 8 months, until she found us our sweet, little home that fits our quirky needs. Kathy is not only one of the hardest working people I've met, but so easy to be around - sweet & funny (well, she laughed at my dumb jokes, anyway), and we never felt like she was "selling" us anything. I highly recommended Kathy. She's the best! Less ... More

Kathy was instrumental in allowing us to sell our home in a challenging market at a premium to appraised value in 3 weeks. We could not have asked for a smoother transaction or more competent representation at the negotiation table. I would recommend her to others without reservation.

I am a builder of quality, custom homes. Kathy is my realtor of choice to market my product because I know I can depend on her to do everything possible to find the right buyer for me. She is always in communication with me throughout the entire process. She knows her market well enough, that I sometimes ask her, "What do I need to build next?" She has a good feel for what is selling best, and in today's market that is very important.

When we were ready to begin looking for our first home, a friend referred us to Kathy Kane (lovingly referred to as "Double K"). We continue to be thankful for the expertise and level of professionalism that Kathy brought to our process. We had a wish list, reasonable and modest, but still tough to fulfill within our price range. Kathy encouraged us to see as many houses as we could so that we could become more familiar with the market, deepen our understanding of what we wanted, identify where we may have to be willing to compromise, and become more comfortable with the process of buying a new home. She was patient, available, thorough and hopeful. Kathy's professional values and ethics were always at the front line of our work together. We never felt cajoled or otherwise pressured, into considering a particular house. Once we found the house we were ready to buy, Kathy put on her superwoman cape and became even more persistent, assertive, and honorably protective of our rights as buyers, all the while maintaining respect for the sellers. Her sense of humor became invaluable to us as we moved through the process of becoming fist time homeowners. We never felt uncertain about where we stood in the process due to Kathy's willingness not only to represent us, but to educate us as well. We've been in our home for 2 months. We've had some lovely surprises such as we can see the sun rise over a distant ridge from the bedroom window--a wonderful bonus to the already great house Kathy helped us acquire. The only thing we regret is that we don't get to talk with Kathy much anymore! For any real estate transaction in the future, we will definitely contact Kathy Kane.

Listed home, but didn't sell
Kathy took the survey that had trees as markers and was able to trace out the lot for the buyers. This helped to sell the land in a short period of time.
