"We relocated recently to South Orange County and had a quick timeline for moving. Kathy spent a weekend showing us every inch of South Orange County so that when we landed on our final location, we felt confident in our choice. Throughout the entire cross country move process, Kathy was a great resource and so helpful! We’d highly recommend Kathy, especially if you’re new to the area!"

"Kathy is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is incredibly trustworthy, honest and genuine. This was our first home buying experience, so of course. I was a bit nervous. Kathy was incredibly patient and kind throughout the entire process and always looked out for our best interest. When looking for the right house she kindly accommodated our schedule. We had many questions along the way and Kathy always answered them promptly and honestly. When we found the right home for us, Kathy acted quickly and smoothly to ensure we came out on top against the other potential buyers. Kathy is a wonderful person and trusted Agent. I highly recommend her :)"

"I can not state how grateful I am for Kathy's patience and professionalism. I just moved from Santa Clara California to San Clemente. She was very flexible to my schedule and showed me many properties. Kathy was recommended by a friend who lives down this way and she was so right on her recommendation. I am very happy with the property that I found due to Kathy's diligence and hard work. I highly recommend Kathy for all your Real estate needs"

"Kathy Burns helped us sell an investment property. She really understood the neighborhood and saw the "gem" in what we had. We had talked to a few Realtors but, frankly, chose her because she appeared most genuine, honest and easy to work with. Overall, it was her knowledge, expertise and negotiation skills that resulted in an all cash, above asking price offer for the property. We highly recommend her."
