Katie's Client Reviews


My wife and I had the pleasure of having Katie represent us on the sale of our home. We know many brokers but decided to go with Katie because of her experience, professionalism and vast network.  First, she sat down with us and clearly walked us through the process of selling a home and set the proper expectations. She then took on the management and oversight of all the improvement work. Katie was available around the clock to meet workers so my wife and I did not have to adjust our schedules. Her communication was excellent; very concise and there were never any surprises. When we began showing our home to prospective buyers, Katie always gave us timely and thorough feedback. She managed our expectations very well which helped ease the stress of selling a home. We received multiple offers on our home and Katie helped us navigate what could have been a tricky situation. As expected when working with Katie, everything was done orderly and ethically so all parties felt comfortable and were treated fairly. It is calming to have a person like Katie representing you even during the most stressful times. Katie is a true professional. She's punctual, energetic, even-keeled, confident and a person of high integrity. We recommend Katie to anyone who is interested in buying/selling a property.

-Charles and Stephanie Mellor, Sellers, Ross

I have known Katie Jarman for many years and liked the way she was eager to help sell my house.  I knew that it wouldn’t be easy because I had too much stuff.  I wasn’t keen on getting rid of it just to stage the house.  Katie worked with me over the months to get as many personal items into storage.  She also arranged to have a variety of vendors come in to paint, clean carpets, garden, etc.  She really went above and beyond what I might have expected any realtor to do.  Katie even cleaned and polished the floors herself!  In the end, the house sold for well above what I might have expected.  I was very pleased with the results and can credit Katie with getting me a price well above what I would have gotten had she not be involved.  I would be happy to talk to anyone who might be considering using Katie to sell their house.  I can recommend her highly.

-Scott Dingwell, Seller, Kentfield

We bought a house in Ross with Katie’s help.  It was a tough process but she really stuck with it and pulled us through to the closing date.  If you are looking to list your home or buy in Greenbrae, Kentfield, or Ross, those are her markets of high expertise.  We highly recommend using her.

-Matt and Amy Sagues, Buyer, Ross

Katie Jarman is professional and personable.  She listened to what I was looking for and showed me some great properties.  I found a home in Ross very quickly!  She was a great help during the entire process!

-Dorine Woods Towle, Buyer, Ross

I relocated to Marin from Boston.  Katie and I looked for two years before I found the right house for my family.  She took into consideration many factors that were important to me.  We found the right house in the Cascade Canyon area of Mill Valley.  She provided me with a decorator to get the house pulled together quickly.  It was a pleasure to work with Katie from start to finish!

-Michael Bigham, Buyer, Mill Valley

Katie is one of the hardest-working people I know!  She is well-organized and pays close attention to the smallest details. She is very professional and an excellent communicator. Katie helped me sell my home in a tricky market, and went way beyond the call of duty to make sure that the transaction was handled smoothly throughout the process.  Katie is also an experienced home remodeler and has a wealth of information about resources for homeowners, ranging from gardeners, handymen, cleaning services, painters, furniture consignors, storage facilities, stagers... the list goes on. I would happily recommend Katie to anybody (in fact, I already have done so!

-Kimberly S. Blue, Seller and Buyer, Kentfield and San Anselmo

Katie is extremely talented in all aspects of the real estate process and highly dedicated to her clients. She worked tirelessly for us in selling our home and finding a new home for us. In the sale process she worked closely with the stagers and was creative in this process as well. She also found ways to accelerate the process whenever there were any delays. She just finds way to get it done. She was a true pleasure to work with from start to finish.

-Robert and Ruth Dell, Seller and Buyer, Kentfield and Tiburon

At the beginning of the process Katie did a tremendous job putting together a detailed dossier on the current state of the market, comparables, etc. and her proposed strategy around timing, the listing process, target price and other details.  Having never sold in the California market, this was extremely helpful to us in understanding the process, anticipating how buyers might react and behave, and ultimately setting our expectations.

Katie worked quickly and diligently to put a comprehensive disclosure package together, anticipating buyer questions and concerns, so that we felt we were fully prepared for our listing date.

In our opinion Katie had an excellent knowledge of the market and was able to give careful consideration to the timing of our listing, to ensure we got maximum exposure and a great price for the sale of our house.

Katie had access to a broad array of experts to help get our home inspected, repaired and ready to sell, and was empathetic to our needs. Further, she personally oversaw, and always had people available to assist with, numerous open house and private viewings so that potential buyers always had access to view the property and could have their questions answered.

At all times Katie ensured all timelines were met, and tirelessly stayed on top of the process. We very much appreciated Katie’s dedication to our sale and that she never let her other engagements interfere with her commitment to us – she was always there whenever we needed her, and we always felt like we were her top priority.  She worked well with the buyer’s agent so that we could close on time with no issues.

We would highly recommend Katie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Mill Valley and beyond.

-Jamie and Georgea O’Donnell – Seller, Mill Valley

We loved working with Katie on the sale of our house so much.  She was thoughtful, professional and accommodating.  We loved all communications from her and how proactive she was.  Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

Much love and appreciation,

-Oxana and Bill Hughes, Seller, Kentfield

I could not have been more satisfied with the way Katie presented the manufactured home I just bought.  She not only showed me how to work all the appliances but she labeled all the switches for me too.  To top it off after returning the next day after we closed, I found a gift-wrapped basket of cleaning supplies of the kitchen counter. Wow!  Thanks.  Katie

-Matt Harris, Buyer, San Rafael

Katie was the consummate professional throughout our sale process. From providing current information on the evolving market to making wise recommendations for improving the look and feel of our home to appeal to prospective buyers to organizing the work to be done to stepping in to oversee the work when we were not available. She defines "Customer Service." Her knowledge of the Marin County real estate market is second to none; she has her finger on the pulse of the market at all times. The overall process was more smooth, hassle free and successful as we could have possibly hoped. We recommend her highly without hesitation.

-Michael Bigham, Seller, Mill Valley

Katie is wonderful. So resourceful and unflappable, she'll be with you every step of the way. From the moment we first decided to list our house - in the stressful age of Covid - to close and the final process (including dropping our Xfinity equipment at UPS!), Katie makes herself fully available for her clients; it is clear Katie treats them the way she would like to be treated!

-Lori and Charles Akers, Sellers, Novato

Katie helped me purchase my first home. She was an absolute joy to work with and made me feel comfortable and confident at each stage of the process. She worked tirelessly to ensure the entire transaction went smoothly. I would definitely recommend working with Katie!

-Selby Walker, Buyer, Mill Valley

I was a challenging client re-entering the housing market in Marin County after a 2 year hiatus. Essentially Katie was dealing with, "I don't know what I want but I'll know it when I see it." Katie took the time to understand what I liked or thought I liked and did not like for my next home. Through a one year process...one year because I was dealing with important family, career and unexpected health related issues, Katie educated me on the market through the calls, emails, marketing reports and open home visits with her and on my own. In addition to listed properties, she was current on places about to come on the market. We missed one opportunity (my own doing) that I thought was perfect. Katie, with grace and tact, got me over that disappointment and then found at least two other opportunities, one of which was truly perfect and made more sense for me on several dimensions - location, size, price, amenities and lifestyle. Since the purchase of my last home in 2001 it seems like the purchase-sale process documentation is lengthier and more complex. After negotiating professionally on my behalf and reading the tea leaves- mine and the sellers', we came to terms. Katie and her team took me through the process efficiently and when there was a blip – it is evitable, she worked well with the seller's agent to resolve the situation to keep the deal moving forward but always as my advocate. For anyone looking for a knowledgeable and the consummate professional realtor, I recommend Katie
