Katie Straume's Listings
ABR - Accredited Buyer's Representative
Certified Staging Professional
Passion, compassion, intelligence, organization, loyalty, experience – these are just a few of the skills that I use when working with any client. I was born and raised in Lutherville, went to high school in Towson, college in College Park and law school in Baltimore. I love this state and could not imagine living anywhere else.
I am committed to customer service. I strive to provide the best experience for my clients with the best possible financial outcome. This includes, but is not limited to, a fast response to all your questions and concerns.
I am always thinking creatively and using my imagination. The world is changing everyday and I know the importance that imagination and creativity play in the market place today. These skills come into play when negotiating the contract, finding the home of your dreams and getting your home ready to sell. I am always helping my Seller’s stage their home for the best possible showings, in some cases, even bringing my own art work, furniture, pillows, curtains, etc.
Simply, I love what I do and it shows in the quality service I provide. Please let me help you sell your home and/or buy the home of your dreams!
Katie's dedication in understanding our needs was very exceptional. We were impressed with her opinions and knowledge of the real estate market. She was quick in responding to all of our questions. ~ John Boring
We had a very positive experience purchasing our new home, thanks to Katie. From our first communication, right up through the day of settlement, she made the process simple and stress free. She put us in touch with our lender, answered our questions in a timely fashion, and reassured us every step of the way. We saw our new home for the first time in late July, and closed in mid September, we were very pleased with the expeditious time frame. Katie is an excellent realtor and I would have no hesitation using her services again, or recommending her to friends and family! ~ Daphne Helldorfer
Katie is the absolute best! Her dedication to us, as well as her communication with us, was superb! She went above and beyond from our first meeting with her, through our listing, her staging, marketing our house, and negotiating with prospects and eventually the buyer. There were some glitches along the way through no fault of ours or Katie's and it was frustrating, but her professional and positive ethic and spirit keep it moving to our final sale! We would recommend Katie to anyone selling or buying a house. She is, as I said, the best!!! ~ Diane Knott
Katie Straume is a very knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent. She makes herself available when needed and provides guidance on decision factors of buying a house. She is realistic and will not tell you what you want to hear, she will tell you the truth. As a first time home buyer, I recommend her to other first time home buyers. You will be in good hands with her. ~ Nicole Keimig
This was a text book deal for us...Katie helped to find the property, helped negotiate the purchase, aided in its rehab with a lot of design ideas, and sold it as soon as it was completed. All parties involved-sellers, agents, and most importantly, the buyer, won. Can't wait to do this again. ~ George Linthicum
Katie is a reliable and knowledgeable agent for this market. She pays attention to detail and is trustworthy. We have no reservations in referring Katie to our friends and family. ~ Diana Via
