Words don’t do justice to describing Kathy Thompson’ s ability to effectively represent her client who’ s looking to buy, sell or lease their residence. Her desire to try and create the right deal, to assist in advantageously structuring its terms, and then her dedication to organizing and continually overseeing each step of the transaction to assure its success, makes you believe that you’ re being helped by your best friend.

She was well organized and certainly delivered on her professional abilities. Through the years I have used Kathy and her firm to either find properties for myself or have referred her to many clients from around the world. She has performed with remarkable results for me, my friends and my colleagues (and she is still ‘The Rocket’). William Howell HAI Advisors Kathy is so much more than a realtor. She goes “the extra mile” to help in every way she can. In our case, Kathy worked diligently to ensure that we had good quality key advisers for all aspects of our property purchase.
