Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Dana Point, CA.


Kathy used her local knowledge and contacts to reach out to us with an opportunity we would not have been exposed to under normal conditions. We had an extraordinary set of circumstances calling for a contingent offer which she was able to navigate on our behalf. She then marketed our home and was  successful in meeting our highest expectation in selling quickly and for a price point that we hoped for. We had an unusually difficult escrow process with the home we purchased but Kathy got us through it and we are now happy to be where we are. I would highly recommend Kathy!

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Dana Point, CA.


I just bought my ‘forever home’ in Nigel Shores through Kathy Samuels. Fabulous experience working with her! Highly recommend her. Knowledgeable, savvy, EXTREMELY responsive . . . I could go on. All of this was critically important as I’m from out of town and spend most of my time working  globally. She was cognizant of that and worked in sync with my schedule and time zones. For a stress free experience, I recommend working with Kathy

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Dana Point, CA


Kathy sold our home in 5 days above asking price with multiple offers. What else is there to say? She is very knowledgeable of the market in Orange County, had a great marketing strategy, complimented by an excellent photographer and home stager. Kathy stayed involved the entire time from start  to finish and her communication was excellent. We highly recommend Kathy and would use her again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Dana Point, CA.


We moved from Northern Calif. and Kathy helped us over and beyond simply being a Real Estate agent. At one point we pulled out of a deal that we thought was not the right deal or house for us 3 days before closing and no problem. She just went to work for us all the more harder. When we found what we wanted in the area we were already here and staying with relatives. She expedited the sale quickly for us and we are forever grateful. Very reliable agent and always quick to respond to our calls. Thank you Kathy, from our hearts.
