What Our Clients Are Saying About Kathy

Kathy was very courteous, friendly, and very knowledgeable. I liked the online response time with new listings. I received the new listings quicker than other online real estate co's.
- Marianne Battista
Kathy Saunders is the only real estate agent we will use!
- Michael & Julie Lorentz
It has been a pleasure to be represented by Kathy Saunders of the Homes By Marco team, in the selling of our home and the purchase of a new one. Throughout the whole process, she listened to our preferences and needs, then provided us with many opportunities to look at homes to consider. She was always available, dependable, prompt, and kind, advising us and helping us think through the many possibilities of price, location, size, amenities, and potential of each home. She is a master in her field and we appreciated her professionalism and personal care, in working for us to help us make our final decisions in real estate.
- Jan Brunke
Kathy Saunders provided extraordinary service. Kathy was extremely patient and supportive in continuing to show us properties in a very timely fashion. Without her kindness and professional manners, we would not been able to find our dream home.
- Bruce & Gloria Edwards
Kathy is amazing. I couldn't have imagine doing this with another agent. She took the time to explain everything and treated me like family. Very grateful!!
- Carol Vance & Jay Grisolano
During our house search we found Kathy to be very thorough in trying to find the right mix of property, location, price, style and taxes. She sent us a variety of "possibles" and was always on time and available to help review the properties and providing the necessary information for us to make an informed decision. We felt she took a personal interest in our search. Very personable and informed. We appreciated all her help during the search and buying process.
- Elaine & Larry Wisniewski
The website made it very easy to pick out homes we wanted to see since all necessary information was disclosed. It was nice to weed out homes first and set up exactly what we wanted to see. Also, we loved working with Kathy, her experience, knowledge, guidance, and communication were superb.
- Daniel Carrera
Kathy and her team exceeded our expectations at every opportunity. Because we were out of town during the transaction, Kathy applied for permits, set up appointments and met with contractors, met inspectors, coordinated an estate sale and donation, and prepared the house for the buyer. Her knowledge of the market is exceeded only by her work ethic. Words fail in expressing our gratitude. We would not hesitate to engage her or recommend her to anyone.
- Rusty McKellar
Loved working with Kathy. She is very knowledgeable and patient. Walked us thru the process and was always there to answer questions.
- Marie (Kiki) Bringuier & Ysmael Lopez
My husband and I worked with Kathy to sell our home and purchase a new one, and can't say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, personable, patient and generous with her time. She thoroughly answered all of our questions and walked us though every step of the process. She provided fantastic guidance and support through both of the negotiations. As we hit a few bumps along the way, Kathy was able to quickly handle them for us and ease any of our concerns. For the sale of our home she arranged to have beautiful photographs taken which showcased the house incredibly, leading to multiple offers and our ability to accept one over asking. We plan to be in our new home for quite a long time, but if we were to move again we would definitely be calling Kathy!
- Julie & Jonathan Lee
Kathy Saunders was knowledgeable, available, and she made the whole procedure very easy.
- Jacqueline Galis
"I doubt that the complicated process of selling and then buying a home is often so pleasurable as we experienced with our realtor, Kathy Saunders. She showed us potential new homes a year or so before we were actually ready to sell the home we'd inhabited for a quarter-century. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she showed our home while we were temporarily away on business. When the time came to look for a new home, she found the PERECT match for us right off the bat. In retrospect, I credit her with excellent knowledge and experience, with an excellent work ethic, with thoughtfulness, patience, and kindness. Come to think of it, Kathy Saunders would make not only an excellent realtor but a great friend. Thank you, Kathy!"
- Susan & Mark Dillon
It went so smooth and our move was seamless. Kathy was very attentive to our immediate search for a house to buy in our price range.
- William & Teresa Krejci
Kathy was amazing at helping us with each step! She was knowledgeable and that was is just what we needed in our first time home buying experience! Not sure how you can top Kathy! Literally she was so attentive, honest, caring, and knowledgeable!
- Chrissy & Brandon Germany
When we decided to move from our Michigan lakehouse back to Illinois to be near our family we had no idea of who to contact. We had been gone from Illinois since 1998. At first we worked with a realtor my daughter had heard about but that was not satisfying. She really didn't listen and would just show us things that I had seen on the internet. Soon after, I saw an ad for a home in Carillon, a senior community, and wanted to see it. It was early in the morning but I called the number listed for HomesbyMarco. Kathy Saunders answered the call and I knew immediately that she would be a good fit. She never let us down. She was always responsive to our every need. We are now happily settled in our new home and are thankful I called Kathy that morning. She made everything happen.
- Lucia & Edward Haas
It was a pleasure to work with Kathy as I was purchasing my first home. She explained everything in ways that I understood and was available with quick responses any time I had questions. She is a very genuine person and I truly appreciate all of her help through the home buying process. Before meeting her, she asked a little bit about me and was able to recommend a home that I ended up buying. It was evident from the start that Kathy truly has the best interest of her clients at heart and she was able to be flexible in her schedule to meet my needs. I would highly recommend Kathy as a real estate agent!
- Michele King
When Angela recently had to start looking for a new place to live, I dreaded the thought of endless hours of looking for her "perfect home". From the time we met you and throughout the entire home buying process, you were always on time, respectful and had great communication. Your patience and dedication put you way above any realtor I have ever worked with and I hope "Homes by Marco" realizes just how valuable you are. Kathy, thank you for your kindness and for making us feel like family.
- Jo Finkenhoefer
We couldn't be happier with the service from Kathy Saunders. We began looking for a condo staying in the area, then totally switched gears and decided to sell our home and move out-of-state! Kathy was patient with us through all decisions we had to make. When we decided to put our home on the market, we did interview other realtors, but the relationship we had already established with Kathy trumped them all! Selling in the fall/winter and during the holidays was not ideal, but Kathy tried all different ways to market our home and make certain other realtors knew about our unique home. The brochure produced was very professional. She was available to us by returning phone calls promptly, or communicating by email. We had an offer before Christmas, a wonderful present! She coordinated the closing since we were going to be in our new home, out-of-state. Thank you Kathy, for making what can be a very stressful time more manageable.
- Jim & Bernie Schultz
We worked with Kathy Saunders on the both the purchase of our townhouse and the sale of our house. Kathy took the time to understand what we were looking for, and took a personal interest in our search. She was able to zero in on the type of townhouse and area we wanted. She was available, on time for our appointments, and was on top of new listings which gave us a competitive advantage. And all of this was done in a professional and positive manner. She is very personable and communication with her is easy. As far as the sale of our house, we were impressed with the overall marketing, including the website and brochure. We felt Kathy's realtor open house, combined with her in-depth knowledge of our house and the market, were key elements in our having a contract within a week of listing. From contract to closing Kathy was our advocate. She was always calm, thorough, and responsive to our questions and concerns. She gave great advice when we asked for it, but emphasized that she would support us in any decision that we made. We highly recommend Kathy Saunders and Homes by Marco.
- Carol & Bill Holmes
The whole experience of working with team at Homes by Marco was incredible. Kathy is the best! She made a very stressful situation (selling our condo while living out of state) a breeze. She kept us informed every step of the way and went beyond just "showing" our home. The website & updates are great. We would definitely recommend her & the team to anyone. My parents are hoping to sell their home in the spring & we will definitely be sending them to Homes by Marco. Such a pleasure from start to finish. Thank you Kathy!
- Sean & Jennifer Caile
Kathy Saunders was great and put me at ease during the process.
- Toni Petty
We were so impressed by Kathy we didn't think twice about having her represent us when the time yo sell our home came. She was great at letting us know the steps we would take during the entire process.
- Cathy Sostak
I just wanted to thank you so very much for helping us sell our house. Your professionalism and constant great customer service is a true core value to you and obviously to you Remax. I work for a company that is based on 100 percent customer satisfaction. This came through so brilliantly from you. Also keeping in touch with us every step of the way during this process and stopping by and picking up the stamp was such a great relief to us. I spoke to you 3 years ago one day on the phone because I saw your name attached to Carillon. I have watched your communication on the Internet regarding sales of homes as well. You told me 3 years ago to keep doing what we are doing to upgrade our home. Well you were right to know that the first client that came through made an offer and the second right after that in the same day not to mention the first day we listed it is unbelievable. I will recommend you to my friends or anyone you know. Thank you again and we truly had a wonderful experience selling our house.
