Katy was a joy to work with from search to close. While I appreciate all the online tools and apps, she had me at the property binder!
Katy Bradfield is the ultimate professional. Our sale was stressful and had unexpected frustrations because of buyers loan issues. Katy's communication and professionalism shine even greater under pressure. I would not consider a real estate transaction in the Charlotte area without Katy. I will recommend her to everyone I know.
We listed our home in late June and had an acceptable offer by early July. Katy helped us price the house right and the marketing plan was great. Inspections and minor repairs took place on schedule just as we had hoped.
The week of the scheduled closing, Katy calls to let us know our buyers have had a problem with the final credit check with their lender. This is when Katy went into overdrive. She was in communication with the lender's agent and the lender daily for updates. We went through numerous neglected timelines from our buyer's lender. Katy proved to be the ultimate professional as the situation became stressed and frustrating for all involved. Katy provided us with the contact information of the Helen Adams legal counsel along with consulting them on our behalf. Ultimately, we had to walk away from this deal.
Our home became an active listing again. Katy's follow up and proactive approach with each prospect was outstanding. By this time, we had moved out of state so we relied on Katy to check on our home as the season changed to winter. In December, we received another acceptable offer, contingent on the sale of their home. Once again, Katy stayed in communication with the buyer's agent, the attorney and lender of our buyer's buyer to keep us on schedule and protect us from potential problems. This time we encountered unexpected problems with the credit of our buyer's buyer. Katy had a thorough understanding of the daily status because she built a relationship with the lender involved because of her professionalism and communication. We finally closed on the sale of our home a couple of weeks later than originally planned (the second time).
Katy became more than an real estate agent but a trusted friend. She is kind, thoughtful, professional, thorough, detailed, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. We would recommend Katy to everyone!

I have worked with many Realtors® and Katy is truly at the top of her field. Her level of service and expertise in the Charlotte market are exceptional. She is highly analytical, has a deep marketing expertise that she executes on flawlessly, and is an excellent negotiator. She is also incredibly personable and a pleasure to work with. I was moving with a relocation package for a position with a Biotech in San Francisco. Katy navigated the many additional steps that relocation companies require with ease. We managed to price, stage, and list within an incredibly short timeframe, and I accepted an offer within 7 days of posting to MLS. I cannot express how appreciative I am for her expertise and the level of service that she provided while completing this sale.

Katy did an excellent job as our real estate agent – and our move was tricky. We bought our neighbor’s house, so we were staying in the area, and the sellers of our house were renting our old house until we sold it. In addition, we had purchased a side lot that we were selling with our old house unless the price was too low, in which case, we would transfer to our new property. She managed the confusion and complexities of the transaction with grace and did not let it affect the sales process. Somehow, she kept everything tied up neatly for the potential buyers. When we called and said that we felt traffic was low through the house, she would organize an open house. I think we had 2 or 3. She also advised us well in negotiating with the first family to put in an offer. Because we had purchased our new home before selling the old one, we were eager to sell. Nevertheless, as negotiations progressed, she just thought we could do better, and she was right. That deal fell through but we ended up selling for more than that original negotiated price – and to better neighbors. She kept in mind the fact that we would be neighbors with the buyers of our old home and managed the transaction accordingly. We could not have asked for more. Great job Katy!

Katy Bradfield was a pleasure to work with. She made our transition very smooth. Katy is very professional, dots all the i’s and crosses all the t’s! We loved her! Very knowledgeable, professional, caring, concerned about our needs. Katy was available to us at all times, always returned phone calls and e-mails. We were very pleased and would highly recommend her to friends and family.
Due to issues of the house appraisal, primarily as a result of the lending environment, our purchase transaction brought forth some very unique issues. Katy was tremendous throughout this process, working tirelessly on our behalf to protect our best interest and to make sure the deal got done. Katy thought outside the box and brought forth good ideas to help work through the issues presented by our transaction. I was continually impressed by her tenacity and I was thankful to have her on our side.
Katy was incredible. We were hundreds of miles away trying to sell our house and she took care of everything that we could not due to distance. She also dealt with a difficult buyer with grace and expertise. I could not be happier and would call her immediately if I had another property to sell.

We loved working with Katy and give her our highest recommendation. We were most impressed with her professionalism, her personality, and her expertise.
Professionalism: Katy knows real estate inside and out. She made the process easy and straightforward. She is very organized and kept us on track each step of the way. She was always prepared with the information we needed, and followed through for us with every question or concern, even after closing.
Personality: Katy was a joy to work with. She was very generous with her time and was kind and thorough in answering all our "newbie" questions. She made us feel at home even before we had a home! You can tell from the first time you meet her that she loves helping people.
Expertise: Katy grew up in Charlotte so not only does she know all the neighborhoods, she knows their history and how they have changed through time. She was an immense help as we worked to figure out which one was best for us, sharing her knowledge and providing further information and resources. We are so happy with the home, neighborhood and neighbors that Katy helped us find!
