Thank You.......I would be happy to work with you !
When my husband and I began searching for a home we were a little nervous and not completely ready to buy right away. We wanted to begin looking at houses with the help of a realtor but we were nervous we would be pressured into buying a house before we were ready. We happened to mention this to an employee at our local DCU Branch. They told us about DCU Realty and recommended Kathy Abel to us. A few days later we met with her and immediately clicked with her and knew she would be the right person to help us with our home search.
We searched for houses during the week and weekends for months looking for that perfect home. As we became more serious about finding our home and purchasing a home, we would get very discouraged and unhappy about not finding a home. Kathy was always there making sure we didn't give up and reassuring us that we would find what we were looking for. Through up and downs (losing bids on houses) Kathy always stuck by us, and was polite, professional, and cheerful and would fill us with hope that our house was out there.
Finally; after what seemed like forever, we found a house this past June (2015). Kathy walked us through the steps of purchasing a house: bidding, acceptance, inspections, negotiations, etc... Kathy always had our best intentions throughout the purchase. We were ecstatic when we finally passed papers on our new home.
Kathy is beyond patient (which is not a common quality we have seen in Realtors). We could not have done it without her. We cannot say enough good things about her. She became part of our family during this new process for us.
To anyone looking at purchasing a new house we would absolutely recommend DCU Realty and Kathy Abel.
We purchased our Newton home in 2013, We had the pleasure of working with Kathy to represent us as buyers. Kathy is a true professional, her positive attitude and attentiveness to detail is beyond expectations. While assisting us with our search, Kathy made sure to give us the latest property updates as they became available. She was always available via phone and always returned our calls promptly. She is extremely patient, a rare trait in realtors of today and always looks out for your best interest. Kathy is also an invaluable resource to have when walking through a potential home and acts as your voice to the selling agent, allowing a stress less walk through. Every single concern or question we had was answered by Kathy, even if it meant getting back to us the next day. She is extremely well versed and knowledgeable in both the realty and financing process. From the home inspection through closing, Kathy was beyond exemplary.
Without a doubt because of her we have the perfect home for our family. Thank you Kathy.
We were extremely satisfied with the "buyer" broker services received from Kathy Abel. She is down to earth and communicated in an understandable language, which not being in the "Realty Business" was very appreciated. She spoke with us, got our needs and set up a search site; so we could review various properties listings.
When we or Kathy saw a home that might be right, she set up showing. She never hesitated on showing us properties, Kathy said that you have to look at them because the pictures do not always show the real thing. We looked at over 20 homes before we found our close to perfect fit. Kathy completed the Purchase agreement and guided us through the whole process. Unfortunately, we had some bumps in getting a clean title, but Kathy gave us guidance, kept us informed and we finally closed on our home.
We would not hesitate to recommend Kathy Abel to our family & friends or if needs ever arise, we would call Kathy first.
Kathy made the process of both selling our current home and buying our new home in a short amount of time go very smoothly. She went the extra mile and worked with our mortgage company to ensure that everything was processed correctly and was looking out for our best interests. She was available at almost any time, something that allowed us to get an offer in on the house we fell in love with within a couple days. We couldn't be happier with Kathy representing us for both properties.
It was such a pleasure working with Kathy! She did not have an easy task finding a house for a family of 8 with a limited budget. It took us almost 9 months, but she was patient and helpful throughout the process. We will be forever grateful for her assistance in finding our new home!
