Kate is a terrific real estate agent! She does her homework. Not only did she sell my home, she also helped me find my new one. I cannot recommend her highlly enough. She makes you feel as if you are her most important client – whether you’re looking for a modest cottage, or a mansion. I have recommended her and her services to my friends, and will continue to do so. She is a gem.

Kate is a highly skilled professional. She brings all her talents to the table and will successfully guide you through the challenging world of Real Estate. We have complete confidence in her abilities and have recommended her many times through the years to family, friends and business associates.

Houses sell because of preparation and price, and Kate was great with both. Other homes in our neighborhood have been on the market for 12+ months, but we had an offer in 4 weeks and closed in 3 months. Kate knows how to get the buyers in and get them interested.

Kate was extremely professional throughout the entire sale process. She helped us find the right listing price, and was very open to our thoughts on this. We had a couple of interesting (and stressful) complications selling our property. Kate was such a supportive presence throughout both issues and even attended two Common Council meetings with us as we went through the process of sorting a property line issue out.We had a fun time with the photo shoot and her pictures of our home were absolutely gorgeous!! She gave exactly the right advice on how to present our house. Kate is never condescending or stand offish. She always acts as if you are her most important client. She found us the prefect buyers!

kate is truly amazing! She went above and beyond to make our buying experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible. She is highly knowledgeable and willing to provide advice regarding who to use as an inspector to where to go to dinner. We closed on our house 1.5 weeks after I had a c-section, and this would not have been possible without her. I have moved 3 times in 5 years and Kate far surpasses other agents.

She makes you feel like you are her only client, and is a pleasure to work with.

Kate was an ideal agent. She was knowledgeable and friendly and understood exactly what we were looking for. We would recommend her enthusiastically to anyone that may need an agent!

Kate helped me to purchase my first home, a condo that I love. We looked at several homes and condo’s and ended up with the first one I looked at. Kate knew that would be “the one”, but she graciously continued to show me other properties. Kate’s communication with me was unparalleled. I was a first time homebuyer and needed lots of reassurance. We were partners in this process and it was great to know that Kate was on top of all aspects of my purchase. She copied me on all of her communication with the bank, the lawyer & everyone involved and that helped to ease my nervous mind. Kate is great! I would wholeheartedly recommend Kate as your buyer’s agent.

Kate Seaman is wonderful. We had never sold a house before, and she explained everything that would be involved extremely clearly. She helped us at every step along the way. The house was sold only a month after being on the market.

Kate is also extremely personable and a pleasure to work with. We recommend her very, very highly.

5 lkhine24

We were very satisfied with our experience of purchasing a home through Kate Seaman at Warren Reality. She was willing to meet with us to view homes with little advanced notice and was knowledgeable about the properties showcased. She is relaxed and takes the time to get to know you and your family during the time you spend with her. Kate recognizes that buying (and selling!) a home is an emotional process and her guidance and reassurance was always helpful to us. She was present during closing proceedings and was the first to congratulate us on our new purchase. She continues to stay in touch with us and inquires about our happiness and well-being. We fully and enthusiastically recommend Kate to anyone who is in need of a real estate agent.

5 user8613887

Kate is very knowledgable and professional in her dealings with both clients and other brokers. She is very thorough and makes every effort to help in any way that she can.

Not only is she great at assessing her client’s needs, but she also provides clear interpretation of all steps in the purchase process.

She was readily available to schedule appointments when we came to town on several occasions, and was also able to assist and represent us to the best of her ability in the closing process.

I would highly recommend Kate. She is truly your broker for life.!

5 user4411626

Kate saw us through the sale of our home during a difficult time in the housing market. Her drive, her attention to detail, and her enthusiasm for a process that at times was overwhelming made for a relationship that was professional and supportive. She will get the job done and we cannot recommend her enough.

5 slavign1

Kate was amazing. She made it easy, painless and fun to go through the buying process with her. She was delightful and always made time for my wife and me during this normally stressful occasion. I can’t wait to do business with her again!

5 hollie614

I can’t believe how much we lucked out finding Kate, who helped us navigate buying lakefront property. As first time homeowners and not being from the area, her deep knowledge of the market, local area, peculiarities of lake property and network of individuals we needed to make the house purchase a reality was critical. Without her guidance and support, we would not have found and locked down the house perfect for us.

5 user7029145

Kate was a sincere pleasure to work with. She took a great deal of time listening and learning what we were looking for and then showed us places that were commensurate with our interests. She was very helpful in walking us through the process as first time homebuyers and was a valuable resource in knowing how much to offer/how to renegotiate etc. We feel very lucky to have worked with Kate.

5 user7326486

Kate provided exceptional logistical support coordinating efforts with our property manager, various service agencies, lawyers, banks, etc. Her thoughtfulness secured the gracious cooperation of tenants to expedite showing the property. It was a pleasure to work with Kate throughout,

5 zuser20140519132249765

Attentive, concerned, and caring. Kate helped me with all facets of selling my home and got the job done very swiftly and impressively. She got the house listed right away, and within a week I had an offer. When issues arose along the way, like a leak when I was out of town, she took care of it immediately for me. Thank you, Kate!

5 zuser20140905095559086

We had a very good experience with Kate Seaman. She was not the listing agent so there were questions that she couldn’t answer, but was willing to find the answers.

She was friendly, timely and made a good effort to help us. She followed up with more listings that she thought were good for us.

Kate worked with us through every step of the process of buying a house and selling a house in the Finger Lakes region. She is accessible and knowledgable coupled with years of experience in this area. We would recommend Kate without hesitation.

5 zuser20140921054303635

Kate has helped to both buy and sell a property for us, and both experiences could not have been better. Not only did she guide me through some renovation decisions, but she also coached us through the inventory of homes when it was time for us to purchase. Without question, I would highly recommend Kate for her local market knowledge, and willingness to listen to your needs. Thank you Kate.

5 megan fisher21

Kate did an incredible job with us. She was very responsive and guided us through the entire process. She was extremely helpful and honest. I would definitely recommend her and I would certainly use her again.

5 zuser20140618072049589

Kate did an excellent job selling my house (first couple to see it put an offer on it) and finding me a new house. She is extremely knowledgeable in real estate and in Ithaca’s resources. I would use her again as my realtor and would highly recommend her to others.

5 aaa2nd

I was inexperienced in the process of selling property. I looked to Kate for help as she was recommended by a family friend. There were three siblings involved in the sale of my family property, therefore three opinions. Kate was very patient. She knew that we had a winner with this property and was willing to stick it out. I had exhausted all of the requests of my sisters, with and without Kate’s influence and still she remained there for me. Thanks Kate! I was starting to despair as my avenues came to a dead end. I couldn’t make my sisters wishes come to reality. I called Kate again after exhausting all of my possibilities. She called me back and assured me an even better price. Who would have known? She did. We sold the property for a higher price all because she knows her market and she knows her business. Thanks again Kate!

5 zuser20150212140004206

Kate is the best! She immediately made us feel at ease with the whole process. She has expert knowledge of the housing market in and around the whole Finger Lakes area. Kate always makes time to take our call or show us yet another listing. She is patience, caring and always, always a real pleasure to work. She works hard and it is easy to tell that she truly loves what she does!

5 bkinney68

Wonderful experience. She is first rate. Kate kept very close contact with us., related our negotiations with the buyer quickly, and was completely professional. She was quick to let us know of offers and counter offers and she relayed them to the other party quickly. Kathleen has a very friendly personality which helps make her clients feel very comfortable. I would recommend her to any buyer or seller. She really looks after the needs of these people and is willing to stay late to do so.

5 gjdthree

Kate did a superb job job helping us buy our Ithaca house! We were first time, very nervous homebuyers – we really needed a lot of hand-holding and reassurance that we were choosing the right place for ourselves, and she filled those needs fully. She was key to our remaining optimistic that we could complete the process. We sure could not have chosen a better agent!

5 ktwilliams79

Kate helped us to sell our home and we could not have been happier with the results. Kate gave excellent suggestions on preparation and staging, and her guidance through the showings and offers was invaluable. Kate was thoughtful, sincere and supportive throughout all aspects of the selling process.

5 user7834711

My wife and I were fortunate to work with Kate purchasing this home together in 2009. Once we decided to sell it we immediately thought of Kate to help us through that process. She was very professional, helpful, honest and we recommend highly whether you are purchasing or selling a home, we worked together through both at various times and plan to work with Kate in the future!

5 user2747120

Kate is an outstanding agent. Not only did she sell us a second vacation home, she sold us our first home six years ago. She listened attentively to our needs and our wants and found a perfect match in both cases. She also sold my sister her house and my mother her house and they have been very satisfied. I recommend Kate unreservedly.

5 zuser20140418100537373

Kate attended to my every need. She got my house sold quickly and was professional all along the way. I chose her for a reason, and she didn’t disappoint.

5 user163620

We loved working with Kate. We found her initially as a listing agent for a home we were interested in touring. Early on, we realized that Kate was an honest and forthright agent who was not afraid to give “hard” information or break a promise to tenants or sellers, regardless of the reason. She always came across as professional yet personable. She was knowledgeable of the area and the housing market and demands. Kate toured homes with us attuned to areas that needed fixing and helped us negotiate a fair and reasonable price for our home. We highly recommend her.

5 allison windle

Kate was truly wonderful to work with. She was the best source of knowledge and advice on every aspect of local real estate, as well as life in Ithaca in general. Kate was very attentive to my needs and patiently guided me through the process of buying our perfect home.

5 brokenwood

Kate was very thorough and responsive throughout the buying process – from the first look at the property through the closing. She was on top of everything, confirming her expertise and experience as a seasoned and very qualified realtor. She was also very personable and easy to work with and patient – when I was perhaps making it more difficult than it needed to be. I would certainly recommend her to anyone needing the services of a realtor in this area.

5 phillipsfh

Kate and her team worked tirelessly to sell our home using various online and other communication tools to share information in a timely way. Thank you Kate. Faye

5 hkcamobell

We had a great experience with Kate. We had a solid offer on our house in less gain a week. She’s very clear and straightforward. Made helpful suggestions about what we could do to maximize our sale, but was also realistic about our budget and time. Her market comps were really complete and detailed. Very responsive when we needed her. Great job marketing out house – photos and marketing materials looked amazing. I thought she had excellent knowledge about local market. Also had good sense of humor – which was appreciated. Overall wonderful experience. Would use her again without hesitation.

5 zuser20140608065107452

Kate is an amazing real estate agent. She made the sale of my mother’s home, what could have been stressful, a delightful experience. She does her research and lists homes to sell. Her immediate attention to detail, fabulous photos and brochure were only a few of her amazing qualities. Our entire family were thrilled to have the opportunity to use Kate Seaman and if you want a real value assessment, great tips to properly display your property and be able to sit back and relax as the property sell then Kate should be your choice.

5 RoxanneKelly9

She makes me want to buy a second house. Every step of the process was made easier because of her knowledge and expertise. Buying a foreclosure was more difficult than anything we have done before, but she made it happen. She answered our calls and contacted whomever needed contacting right away. She provided her web site with dependable connections for everything else we needed. We can’t say enough, if you are looking to buy or sell, Kate is the woman to go to get the job done.

5 betany50

Kate is wonderful to work with- she has solid experience and knows the area. She was direct and clear in what we needed to do to sell our home quickly and easily without spending major money, just some simple cosmetic changes. We priced our house right and had an excellent offer within a few days. The rest of the process was smooth and easy. Kate comes with my highest recommendation.

5 kate massimo

After asking friends for recommendations, we contacted Kate. From the pricing to the staging to managing our tenant (!) to helping us get the house cleared out, Kate demonstrated expertise and excellent judgment. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Because we live overseas, the process of getting our house ready for sale could have been quite tricky, but it was incredibly smooth, thanks to Kate. She worked hard to be in touch with us, keeping us informed about what was happening with staging and with showings. We felt like we were in very competent hands. I would recommend Kate to anyone looking to sell. In fact, I have, and my friends sold their house this spring, too!

5 wdichtel

Kate was outstanding at all stages of selling our home. She gave us honest, specific, and helpful advice for preparing our home for sale. She scheduled several open houses and viewing appointments. We were living out-of-state while our home was on the market, and Kate kept us informed of showings and the level of interest. Finally, Kate gave us excellent and level-headed advice as we negotiated the terms of the sale and the inspection. I recommend her highly.

5 menyounglee

One month into living here, we’re still very pleased with the choice that Kate helped us make. We were not in the area when looking and she took us through many video tours. Her ability to explain a house and its various aspects were critical in educating us and getting us the information we needed. She was a very good teacher for our first home purchase. There was a renegotiation after inspection which she handled expertly.

5 skybluepink25

Kate pays a lot of attention to detail. She’s very competent and works efficiently and with a sense of urgency when required. She will continue to advise in an as needed basis even after the home is purchased.

5 jkucher

Kate sold us a new home and then sold our old home. She was outstanding every step of the way in our real estate experience. Kate always had the answers and provided information every step of the way. Her judgement is sound and her affable personality made for fun moments.

5 zuser20141125020525855

Kate is smart, kind, savvy, strong and excellent to work with–she is knowledgeable and helpful– throughout the process. I would recommend her highly and without reservation.

5 tjday1

Kate helped us, with all aspects of our transaction. She is responsive, courteous, conscientious and knowledgeable. She has lived in upstate New York and is familiar with the market. We would use her again, if ever needed.

5 dwilks84

Kate is an exceptional realtor! She found the perfect house for our family and negotiated it into our price range. Without her, we never would have looked at our current home, and certainly wouldn’t have been as successful in negotiating the price. Kate’s community contacts are also invaluable. She put us in touch with a great bank, inspector, and others. She really made the move to Ithaca a much better experience than we could have hoped for. We would recommend her to anyone!

5 mandostime

We searched and talked to different realtors. Finally, we decided to go with Kate! We are extremely happy we chose her. We did most of our business from out of state; however, when it was time to buy our home Kate helped us plan and organize our trip-house-hounting. She was very professional and friendly who knows her business while she goes out of her way to answer your questions even at oddly hours of the day! After our business, I feel that I can email her anytime to simply ask her for the best dry cleaner in the area.

5 zuser20160920100105977

My husband and I wanted to purchase a home at Ithaca. Kate came highly recommended by a friend and we were NOT disappointed. Kate took no time in understanding our requirements. The houses she showed were well researched keeping in mind our needs. We never wasted much time in looking at listings that would have never fit the bill. She also provided a good perspective on the pluses and minuses of houses in different areas. We ultimately ended up buying a lot and the construction will begin soon. Kate has an extremely good network of people in the field. She was able to connect us to a builder, lender, attorney. She got things moving and stayed on top of it all until all permits were secure and we were able to close. Kate is very professional. Given that the place is new, there was a lot of learning for us and thanks to Kate, it was made way easier.

5 zuser20170115062254720

Both Kate and her associate Kyle helped me during a potential move and selling of my home. I decided to hold off on the sale of my home at this time, but will be calling them up again when the time is right. Kate’s knowledge of the local market during my home’s market appraisal was very impressive. She understands the specific market values within the neighborhood where I live, as well as provided advice for projects on my home prior to my house sale

5 dmm20

Kate is easy to work with, knowledgeable and extremely responsive. She’s well connected in the community and for a small town this is really important. I really enjoyed our short time working together!

5 jon corsonrikert

Kate was very thorough in her review of our property and provided both practical and strategic advice as we thought through the optimal timing and pricing for our recent home sale. The sale turned out to be quite straightforward, but her wealth of experience would likely make a big difference with a more complex situation. She clearly knows the Ithaca market well and we would recommend her services highly.

5 zuser20141025192340472

Great service provided by Kate and her team. My house was sold in a battle. I was satisfied with the results and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home. I’ll be sure to use her in the future for all my real state needs.

5 jcm5072

Kate is an experienced realtor who was very attentive to our search for a property on Cayuga Lake. We looked at a dozen or more year-round houses as well as seasonal cottages. Starting out we were not sure of what we wanted and Kate’s knowledge of lake properties gave us a good understanding of what was available and as well as the values. As a result we found the perfect spot for us. She was also thorough following the purchase offer making sure that the closing went smoothly. We would not hesitate to call on Kate again for any future real estate purchases.

5 user8634744

Kate’s experience and many years in the business speak for themselves. She was highly instrumental in getting us the home we wanted and that’s not an easy task when you’re dealing with absentee buyers. We were relocating from the west coast and didn’t have the luxury of seeing every home with our own eyes. Kate became our eyes and ears and helped guide us into an amazing purchase that is perfect for us. She is personable, friendly, intuitive and compassionate, and well-versed in every facet of real estate. Highly recommended!

5 user6320138

Kate Seaman is an extremely knowledgeable real estate professional. Her presentation to prospective buyers was outstanding. We definitely would recommend Kate. She had our house sold in 24 hours!

5 zuser20170330105742288

Kate has been our real estate agent for many years now. She goes above and beyond every step of the way to insure the buying and selling process is as smooth and stress free as possible. We could not have been more pleased with the service provided by Kate and her team and without her, we would not have the home we are in today – she truly made the difference.

We specifically were looking for lake view/front on Cayuga or Seneca Lake. We found Kate to be very professional and knowledgeable in the real estate market in and around the lakes. Kate always came prepared with in-depth research on the properties and if there were any questions, she’d find the answers!

4 nancybattistella

Kate has sold our commercial and residential property in a year and a half. She is thorough,always available , competent and very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her for any type of sale.
