Kathy was born and raised in Northern California. She is the youngest of 6 children. She attended Parocial School from kindergarten through 12th grade. She attended a local State College where she majored in Business. Kathy is now married to her husband John and they have a blended family of 3 children. They have one daughter in grade school and two in college, one attending Sacramento State University to obtain her undergraduate degree and the other is overseas in Beijing, China working to obtain her master’s degree.
They currently live in Northern California where they enjoy a modest life with their youngest daughter. Kathy is a successful real estate sales professional and has been for over 20 years. When opportunity knocks Kathy listens. She started out her professional career on the savings side of the banking business where she worked her way up the ladder into upper management positions.
The first knock was an opportunity as a real estate appraiser. Kathy applied, was hired, studied and obtained her license as a real estate appraiser with a small Savings and Loan in Oakland California. She didn’t stop there; the next opportunity arose with the same Company in real estate loans. She smoothly transitioned into that position and embraced a successful career in loans for over 5 years.
In 1999 her family recognized her talents in the real estate industry and approached her with starting a family real estate mortgage business. She left the stability and comfort as a successful employee in the mortgage business to become an entrepreneur/business owner. The family business lasted for approximately two years, then it was mutually decided that Kathy would buy out her partners and continue the business on her own…yet another opportunity.
Kathy not only ran the mortgage business but expanded the business to include real estate sales. She successfully ran that real estate and mortgage business for another 8 years. In 2008 she found it best to move from her own company to a large new home builder where she has been a successful real estate sales agent for 7 years.
