Kathleen Spooner

meet Kathleen.

I remember it like it was yesterday…

It was the spring of 2001 and I had just purchased my first home, tucked away on a quiet street in downtown Ithaca. I was starry-eyed, and gung-ho. Determined to do all of the renovations myself, I pulled up my sleeves and got to work tearing down the drop ceilings. Weeks later, with many secrets of my new home revealed, I was still hanging what seemed like endless drywall. I was a brand new homeowner, and I only wish I had known then what I know now.

Since finally finishing with the drywall, I have honed my expertise in many, varied aspects of the real estate process. Sure, I learned through working on my own home, but also by working as a licensed NY State home inspector, as well as being part of a team of general contractors working to turn other people’s homes into dreams come true. I love sharing my knowledge with my clients, and helping to equip each and every one of them with the confidence they deserve when looking to buy or sell a property. In addition to my extensive experience in real estate, I spent several years as a representative of an importer of fine Italian wines with a focus on small, organic producers. Granted, this isn’t directly related to real estate, but it has certainly helped ensure I always have the perfect bottle of wine to accompany my frequent dinner parties with friends and family where I can indulge my love of home-cooked meals in my well-appointed kitchen. In addition to enjoying the best local bounty the Finger Lakes has to offer (wines! produce! entertainment!), I love hiking and swimming in the many local gorges and waterfalls, and touring the many bucolic rural communities on my road bike. And, not surprisingly, I am still happily, eternally, renovating my property, a lovely Edwardian Era duplex. 
 
Whether you are new to town, or a seasoned local looking to make a change, I can’t wait to help make the process of buying, or selling a property smooth, and successful, for you.

what my clients are saying

“In an area with so many exceptional agents, why did I pick Kathleen Spooner over the rest? As a first time home buyer, she was patient, thorough, and fun! She clearly and patiently walked me through every step of the process, thoughtfully showing me homes that met my needs and wants and in my price range. She lent her previous home inspection expertise when touring homes, offering advice, recommendations, and pointing out potential future expenses. And she did so with a great sense of humor and levity to ease any fears or nerves. Kathleen found me both a beautiful house and a wise investment, but most importantly, she found me a home.”  -2017 buyer
