"Katherine is not an ordinary Realtor, she is a Personal Advisor who is intelligent & sincere. She helped me liquidate my mother’s home of 50 + Years, arranging for economical updates to be done to home to ready it for sale and further assisted with suggestions for getting rid of many belongings. We received an acceptable offer rather quickly in a declining market and a huge burden was lifted from me. I used her services several times again and purchased three profitable investment properties and a vacation home. Without her lead and coaching, I never would have done it. She is excellent with research and numbers." M Zarick, Represented in sale of S Toledo Home, purchases in Maumee, S Toledo & Florida – Katherine Stark
"Ms. Stark served as our agent in the purchase of a residential property in south Ft. Myers, Fl. in 2013. Our search for property began online and eventually progressed to us physically visiting the area and meeting with her, it is important to note that she also was out of town and flew in to Florida for our meeting. After a week of "house hunting" riding around in her car we found a property that pleased us. The contract and subsequent "closing" was easily & efficiently conducted electronically with her assistance Throughout the process we were impressed with her professionalism, knowledge and dedication. It is our pleasure to have met Katherine and we would certainly recommend her to anyone seeking the services of a professional Realtor." Harold & Marilyn, Purchased in Florida – Katherine Stark
"I worked with Katherine while searching for a Florida property in the fall of 2009. I had a very limited time frame in which to secure a property so working with a Real Estate Agent that was highly professional was very important to me. I found her to be knowledgeable, organized, prompt and reliable. I definitely will choose to work with her again in the future, and would recommend her to friends and family." Nancy Z., Purchased in Florida – Katherine Stark
"We met Katherine through the internet while looking for our little "piece of paradise" in Southwest Florida. Katherine was excellent to work with as she diligently helped us through many obstacles in finding, negotiating, and finally closing on a difficult bank owned property. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase real estate. She is a true joy to work with and will always be a friend." Dan and Mary Walker Wadsworth OH, Purchased in Florida – Katherine Stark
“I have known Katherine for several years and admired the success she has achieved by owning real estate as well as her role as a Real Estate Agent. My husband and I grew tired of watching the stock market volatility and decided to venture into the real estate investment arena. We started with a condo in Florida which she spent endless hours researching. She showed us many properties and we purchased a condo at a very good price. We use this personally as well as rent it out when we are not able to be in Florida. We then decided to invest in some houses in Toledo. Katherine found us several houses that have created income and excellent investment opportunities for us as we are working toward retirement. Since we were so happy with our purchases in Toledo, we asked her to find use more and we purchased 2 additional properties in Florida for investment. Katherine is very good at listening and helping people achieve their goals. She is very hard working, diligent and honest and one I can trust to refer to my family and friends.” Julie Donaldson, Represented in vacation home purchase, Mentored in rental property investing & managing – Katherine Stark
"Katherine helped me purchase a condo for a great deal and made the process simple and efficient. She identified a property that worked perfect for my lifestyle and budget when I didn't even know what I wanted, and not in a pushy way like some agents I had dealt with before. She arranged for an inspection using her contacts and utilized some cool technology to make the paperwork and closing easy. I would definitely recommend her to anyone I know." Lori, Purchased vacation property – Katherine Stark
"Kathy was very helpful in finding the property that I was looking for. I was looking for a flip/foreclosure and she actually found the properties that I was not able to on my own. She is a great resource for finding those types of properties." Doug Howard, bought & sold investment property & Personal residence – Katherine Stark
"We sold and purchased a Villa in Monclova through Katherine. She listed our condo and did an open house the first week it was listed. The condo sold fast when we had doubts as other properties in the area had been on the market awhile. She helped us get a great price on our new purchase by making the negotiations more personal. We were actually surprised it was accepted and believe it was because of the way she handled it. She was savvy and pleasantly aggressive." Lorri, Sold & Purchased Personal Residence in Monclova – Katherine Stark
"Katherine spent quite a bit of time showing us all different types of properties in Southwest Florida. She was very patient with us. We had a hard time deciding, but finally found the right property with Katherine's help." Shelley & Randy Rush, Bought vacation home – Katherine Stark

Katherine has a great flair for design which would help to make her a successful realtor." Sara Moynihan, Client at Re-Decor – Katherine Stark
"I have known Katherine for at least 15 years. I was a client of hers in her business, Re-Decor. In addition, Katherine and I have become close because we have an interest in a holistic life style.

Mary Jo Bellner Swartzberg, Client at Re-Decor – Katherine Stark

"I retained Katherine to sell my home. Although the process was littered with many obstacles along the way, Katherine remained optimistic, professional and tenacious and kept me well-informed at every stage. I would recommend Katherine for residential real estate assistance in the future." Andrea Wymer, Represented in sale of Sylvania Home – Katherine Stark
"Katherine provided excellent service throughout the home buying process. Her local market knowledge was definitely helpful in placing a spot on offer allowing us to ultimately have the winning bid on a multiple offer property. Her expertise in the entire process is second to none, as she was able to answer all questions we had, not only on the buying process, but on the property and area as well. All of our inquiries were met with quick and immediate response, which was very important to the timeline. I am quite busy with work during the week and the ease of use of the web interface for document viewing and signing was an extremely helpful tool to stay on task. The negotiation skills and tactics used were instrumental, not only in placing the winning bid, but also allowing us to get what we wanted out of the deal. With getting to know Katherine over this process, I definitely recommend her as an agent for home buying, selling and investing. Thank you Katherine!" Scott Deis, Purchased Maumee Home – Katherine Stark
"Katherine is very prompt in returning calls and researching information on the property and geographical area under consideration. She provided information for all utility companies to contact for new service. The information for the condo association was provided as requested. She had good recommendations for sources for help in moving and help in finding consignment shops, She represents her clients in a very professional and courteous manner. The negotiations for the final contract were done well. The details for the closing were well planned and the process was completed as scheduled. The follow up attention was very welcome and much appreciated." Elnor, Purchased Maumee Condo – Katherine Stark
"Katherine helped us find and purchase a condo in Fort Myers, Fl. last spring. We appreciated that she researched condos in our price range and showed us many in that range. She is very knowledgeable of the area and helped us determine what location we would like. She was there to help us as we made the offer all the way through closing. Since we were doing this from out of state she facilitated all online paperwork efficiently. I have recommend Katherine to others who have also purchased in Fort Myers and they too have commented on how thorough and professional she is." Jan Metzger – Katherine Stark
"Thanks to Katherine Stark we are living the dream in Fort Myers Fl. Back in 2012 we rented condo from people who she had worked with. While we enjoyed our winter vacation, she showed us around and was very knowledgeable about the area. We were in no position to buy at the time but that did not matter to her as she just loves her job. After returning home we decided to try and sell our house. Even though Katherine is not licensed in Michigan she was a great help. Once we sold our home she got busy trying to find us a condo in Fl. She is one of the most committed real estate agents we have ever worked with. Katherine loves her job and it shows. When we did find the perfect place, she did her homework and knew just what it was worth. We were actually willing to offer more as we liked it so much but she was sure we had made a fair offer. She was right and we could not be happier. We would recommend Katherine time and time again." Susan Young – Katherine Stark
"Was wonderful to work with, willing to meet on our schedule weekends etc (we were from out of town), would(and have) given her name to various friends and family." Joe & Melissa, Represented in Purchase of Perrysburg Home – Katherine Stark

It has been over four years and still loving my house and the area that I live in." Adrienne, Represented in purchase of Sylvania Home – Katherine Stark
"Katherine is great! She is very helpful and responsive. She put your needs above anything else and always seeks the best interest for you. I would highly recommend her to anybody who wants to buy/sell a house." Beth, Showed Homes all over Maumee & Monclova – Katherine Stark
"I have known Katherine for years and I can't say that I ever bought a house with her assistance but I have referred friends and family to her and everyone was very happy with her work and the homes they purchased!!!! Katherine did however show me many, many properties and even though I did not buy, she was very patient and determined to try to find the right property (I had just decided it wasn't my time to buy). She spent endless hours doing research...way over and above what anyone should expect....and we're still friends!! I would highly recommend Katherine to anyone looking for their dream home or an investment property. She knows here area and will help you to find just what you're looking for." Cathleen Tillman, Showed Florida properties – Katherine Stark

I would highly recommend using Katherine for your real estate needs in both Ohio and Florida!" Erin Jaynes – Katherine Stark
"Katherine listens to her customers. She pays attention to what is said and finds the property that best suits their needs. While researching the property, she gives all the previous comps for the area helping the buyer determine a fair offer price. She has a list of area service providers, making all inspections, connections, and repairs a smooth transition for the buyer. She has the current taxes, HOA fees for the property being purchased and helps the buyer at closing for a smooth transition." Linda, helped purchase vacation home. – Katherine Stark
"My wife and I worked with Katherine on purchasing several investment properties in both Florida and Ohio. She works very hard in finding the right property to fit our needs. She has also sold one of our properties and offered honest and knowledgeable input when we listed it and were considering offers. The property sold within 2 weeks of being on the market. We have found her to be an excellent source for our real estate endeavors!" Dan Donaldson, Represented 9 different time – Katherine Stark
"We bought our 1st home in Maumee through Katherine. She was extremely patient, flexible, knowledgeable and understanding of our needs for our daughter with a disability. She was especially sympathetic as she also has a family member with a disability. She helped us land the perfect house at the right price which worked well for us for 4 years. When we decided we needed more room, we listed our home with her and she worked hard to get us the price we needed to be able to move on as the market had gone down slightly. She found us the perfect replacement house which we got another great deal on but it took awhile to close on because of the loan. She came through for us again and placed us in one of her own properties temporarily during the transition so we didn't have to go into an apartment which would have been a nightmare with our situation. She is the most honest Realtor and truly cares about her clients and I highly recommend her." Brenda Cook & Jim Shanks – Katherine Stark
"We have purchased numerous properties with Katherine. Recently she sold our home. She understood our need to get it sold and worked diligently to get it on the market and sold. We had a signed contract in 10 days! What else can I say? We will continue to work with Katherine for our future purchases/sales and will highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell." Erin, Represented in sale of primary home & purchase of several investment properties – Katherine Stark
"I utilized the services of Katherine to both sell my home & purchase a new residence. Katherine was very knowledgeable about the market & exercised the utmost in patience never making me feel uncomfortable or pressured. She provided extra services and saved me money through the process. She consulted with me on items she thought should be removed from my home & brought in some pieces of her own to enhance the presentation. She used her contacts to assist in making necessary repairs after the inspection to get the deal done. We looked at over 40 properties over a year and a half – mostly listed homes but also a couple for sale by owners & we also attended an auction. When the right home finally came along, she was on top of it & negotiated swiftly to secure the property at a good price before any competition came in as the market had become competitive. I would highly recommend Katherine for her Professionalism, Patience, Knowledge and Dedication to her clients.” Darryl Lycourt Jr., Represented in Listing Sylvania Home & Purchasing in Hidden Harbour in Holland – Katherine Stark
"Katherine has been my Real Estate Advisor for many years. I started working with her to purchase a Florida vacation home in 2009 and learned quickly that she truly handles transactions like her own. She made a gutsy call and suggested we walk away from a property when the negotiations on our desired property came to a standstill. My husband was ready to go up in price and be done with it and in the end she saved us $10,000 on a $250,000 purchase. We then hired her to list our Perrysburg home that was valued around $450,000. It was a unique property that was a tough sell and she worked very hard trying to get it sold for us, including personally cleaning the property for an important second showing when we were out of town and had not left the home ready to show. She helped me purchase an investment property in a good area that she knows really well in Maumee School District that created great income. She went out in a Level 3 when I was under pressure to help me secure a rental property of my own to live in located in Maumee during a transition period. Finally, she exercised great patience in helping me purchase a new residence in Monclova for $370,000. The first home I fell in love with ended up not working out after an inspection and she guided me to a better choice for my personal situation. We have had quite a journey together and she is one I will always use and refer to others as I know cares. She is definitely one of the most giving, honest people I know." Beth Wymer – Katherine Stark
