We recently moved to Maryland from Indiana, and Kathy was key in helping us to find our new home. We had only a few days in town to search, but Kathy planned our trip very efficiently! She showed us many homes and knew many different areas that would meet our needs. We thought the trip would be overwhelming, but Kathy had everything under control and things went seamlessly! The time she spent with us was totally focused on us. Kathy was always easy to get a hold of and had clearly spent a great deal of time researching properties to show us. She was extremely knowledgeable, both about the areas we were visiting and the properties we saw, as well as about the home buying process. We were first time MD home buyers, and when the process was finished we were very happy to have had her expertise along the way! We're now in the perfect home for us, and look forward to many happy years here!

“I was very impressed with Kathy Banaszewski's knowledge, intuitiveness, and creativity in selling my rental home. She dotted every “I”, and crossed every “T”. It was very difficult for me, but Kathy walked me through everything, and handled every difficulty with confidence and poise. She took care of every detail, and I didn't have to worry about anything. She was so kind to me, and my tenants, and turned what could have been a very difficult situation into a smooth transition. I have told her on more than one occasion, she is the best Realtor I have ever met, definitely the smartest, and the most professional. She will be my life-long realtor from now on, for sure.”

Kathy was given the highest possible recommendation by one of my neighbors, and when she became my mom’s agent, she met and exceeded expectations. She went above and beyond in her role as a buyer's agent, both in helping my mom helping locate a house and in facilitating its purchase. Kathy showed my mom numerous properties in Columbia and never got lost (Columbia natives will understand how big a deal this is!). Kathy was essential in dealing with the seller's agent, Columbia HOAs, and inspectors and efficiently dealt with the inevitable speed bumps that cropped up during the settlement. When it is time for my husband and I to sell our house, we will absolutely be asking Kathy to represent us.

Kathy did an excellent job. She found many properties in the price and locations that I requested. She changed the parameters as I refined my ideas of what I wanted, while making good suggestions but without trying to impose her ideas. Her extensive knowledge of the area and the process gave me the confidence necessary to purchase a home without that sinking feeling after closing. She did everything necessary and more to make the process as efficient and painless as possible.

“Kathy was our realtor as first-time homebuyers. We hadn't been in Maryland for a year, and we knew nothing about the area or what kind of house we could afford. Kathy was extremely knowledgable about the process and walked us through everything, step by step. She drove us around the entirety of Baltimore and the surrounding regions giving us a great idea about what we were looking for. She was very patient, allowing us to explore our wants, while giving us great advice on our needs. Our goal was to find a home where we could be comfortable and settle down for the long-term, but she gave us much more than that. She found us our dream home!”

Kathy, we wanted to send you note to let you know it was a pleasure working with you on the purchase of our new home. You are a true real estate professional who cares very much about her clients. It is obvious that you focus on continuing education and everything involved with real estate as you always had answers to our many questions! We appreciate that you were always available to take our calls and answer all questions to help ease our anxiety of buying a new home after 25 years.
We are so happy with your real estate services that we want you to list the home we just vacated!

"Kathy listened to what I was looking for and offered her experience to help me look at other options I hadn't thought of. Very attentive and responsive, not to mention patient because looking/buying a home is one of the most stressful situations and it went very smooth. I felt I was her only client from beginning to end. We will definitely be return clients when we upgrade in the next few years."
