Katie's clients are big fans of hers and share their comments here:
“We’ve been in our Platt Park bungalow for over a year now and couldn’t be happier! We looked at quite a few houses, but couldn't find one that was quite right until Katie came across this one. Through her "insider" information she heard it was going on the market and -- after looking with us for months -- she had a strong sense that this might be the house for us. We loved it instantly! Knowing how competitive the market was in this area, Katie spent hours with us that very night crafting an offer and getting our offer over to the sellers. Even so, there was a competing offer on the house, so Katie employed a number of creative strategies that helped us become the buyer of choice. She then walked us through all the steps to closing, from financing to inspections and title work -- and celebrated with us the day we moved in. The house wasn't perfect, but it was perfect for us, and we so appreciate all Katie did to find us our wonderful home.” - Andrea and Michael - Platt Park
“Katie Thomas was a great real estate agent because she listened, understood and really "got" what I was looking for. She did an excellent job of finding houses that she knew I would like. She never tried to talk me into anything or “sell” me. She is very patient and I never felt rushed or pressured. She always gave me plenty of time-- whether on the phone or on showings. She is warm, personable, easy going, caring and a pleasure to work with.” - Marcie McDevitt – Platt Park/DU area
"Katie Thomas was absolutely flawless with the way she handled the sale of my 6,000 sf, 5-bedroom home in Centennial, beginning with her excellent ideas about de-cluttering and preparing my home for sale, providing information so the house could be priced properly, handling issues that came up with the buyers, organizing tradesmen she has relationships with to make repairs, and understanding everyone's wants and needs. Despite the current economy and real estate market, Katie had my house sold and closed in under 6 weeks!! I highly recommend her to everyone who wants a true professional that will always put her clients' interests before making a commission. Katie was absolutely the best. She is an outstanding real estate agent." - Craig "Red" Rowland - Centennial, CO
“Katie helped me define what I wanted. She takes the time to get to know you and that makes a big difference, plus she listens really well. She’s just great. If I ever sell this place, I will definitely use her again. We love her!’" - Pam O’Nan - Cheesman Park, CO

"Katie is the hardest working and most personable agent I have ever met. She kept me informed on a weekly basis. She was positive and reassuring and made me confident that the sell of my home was in good hands. She even helped me paint. I've worked with other agents in the past and non can compare to her competence and demeanor."

"Katie is so fantastic. She goes above and beyond to make sure the transaction is as smooth as possible. She has helped me buy and sell a total of 5 properties. Each of our properties have had multiple offers in less than 48 hours on the market. She knows her stuff! I could not ask for anything more!"

"Katie Thomas is a true customer service real estate professional. She is always aware of the needs of her clients and is always striving to meet them. My process of selling my home and finding a new home was long and sometimes challenging because of my specific requirements. Katie was there for me through the whole journey, always making sure I understood documents, making sure we were on deadline, and providing support in so many ways. I strongly recommend Katie Thomas and her very service-oriented approach to helping her clients sell or purchase a home."

“From the first minute you meet Katie Thomas you discover that she has boundless energy. My guess is that her clients have more fun working with her than they would with 99% of the real estate agents in Metro Denver. Not only is Katie fun to be around but she deeply cares about each of her clients. She looks at the big picture of their specific needs and helps them land in a home that they love, one that works for them as an investment, and works for their particular lifestyle needs. Katie’s clients walk away happy on all levels when their deal has closed.”

"Katie Thomas is an outstanding professional Realtor. I was a licensed realtor during the 1980's and the market was difficult to say the least. My endorsement is supported by my past experience and the knowledge gained from buying and selling fourteen personal residences during my lifetime.. Katies knowledge of the market and the associated processes affiliated with buying one home and finding and purchasing another was crucial and she met the challenge. She coached us on all relevant procedural requirements as well as through the listing process, explaining how to follow her research for a new residence via our personal computer and at the same time prepare our listed residence for marketing and showing. She also provided us with an excellent loan officer who was highly competent in securing financial resources, should we need one. Katie covered all the aspects of selling and buying and our situation was a special challenge because the prospective buyer had a condo to sell in order to buy our home. Katie assisted the buyer and literally managed the timing to perfection. She stayed in touch with us and kept asking for suggestions and clarification of issues. She kept us up to date on schedules for showings and upcoming procedures for closing the sale. I am so grateful to have had Katie to manage and guide us through this entire selling and buying process."

"I am absolutely blown away by how easy this was for me. I worked with Katie Thomas and she was so patient and helpful. I never felt like she was trying to show me things I couldn't afford (although my taste was something I couldn't afford). She helped me navigate through everything and really worked hard during negotiations to get me where I needed to be.
"This was my first home that I bought and my budget was pretty low. I never felt like I was put on the back burner by Katie to help her higher end clients or forgotten by her. She met me at locations that were close to me and really helped me. Every place we went into she took notes on things I liked and didn't like and she ended up finding a place with everything I wanted, in the area I wanted, for my budget, which I didn't think was possible!
"I have since referred at least 4 people to her and they all have had an amazing experience. She is very versatile and helpful and I would definitely recommended her to all my family and friends looking to buy!" - Katie M. (y5Xg" target="_blank">via Yelp), submitted 1/28/14
“I’ve worked with Katie Thomas both in buying and in selling a house. She is an exceptional broker. When buying, she was patient, encouraging, and sensitive about finding what most suited my desires. She was tireless and cheerful in our search. When I had to make compromises for the house I bought, she was realistic, and her advice was sound. When selling, I so appreciated her expertise, her attention to detail, her guidance as things came up – and I always felt she was my champion, watching out for my best interests. She truly has personal and professional concern for her clients. I feel fortunate to have worked with her.
“I have recommended her to others, and will continue to do so.
“I think her knowledge, experience and genuine interest in her clients would be a real asset to your company. It has been my pleasure to get to know her.”
