Testimonials

Just a few - feel free to call me for more references!

My husband and I recently sold our home in Bethel Park through Kathi Kernan at Coldwell Banker. From the first day of listing all the way through the closing, Kathi made this stressful process smooth and simple for us. We had a lot going on in our lives, including building a new home, and dealing with difficult personal issues. We never worried about whether she was keeping up, or had our best interests at heart. We trusted her guidance on some important decisions. We would highly recommend Kathi for your real estate needs without reservation!

I purchased a house with the help of Coldwell Banker. Through this Company I was sent the greatest Realtor around to help fulfill my dream of owning a home. Kathi Kernan was very knowledgeable and personable I felt like I've known her my whole life. I really enjoyed my journey with this lady and I love my house. Thanks you for everything.

Sincerely, Feeling Blessed.

Lynnette N, Veteran

As first time home buyers, my husband and I had a lot to learn. Kathi was fabulous throughout the entire process--from the very first viewing until closing day. Her expertise on older homes, our target neighborhoods, and the legalese associated with buying a home was completely invaluable! We saw many homes with several close calls, but we never felt any pressure to buy before we were ready. In fact, Kathi talked us out of nearly buying two different homes that, in the end, would have been huge mistakes. We are now happy home owners and extremely grateful for the way in which Kathi coached us through the entire process. We couldn't be happier!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Not only for helping us to find the perfect home, but for the perfect house warming gift! We will absolutely send future buyers your way!

Take care,

Good Morning Guys,

I just want to thank you for the superior service that you provided me. The process of buying a house and using a VA loan, for me as a first time home buyer, was very intimidating. You made it very easy for me and put me at ease when I was afraid. You are also very knowledgeable when it comes to the VA loan and the whole home buying process. You were able to answer any question I had and most of the time got back to me within minutes with an answer. I can see that you love what you are doing and it's not all about the money. I appreciate the fact that you didn't pressure me into buying a more expensive house even though I was approved for well over twice the price of what I bought my house for. Thanks to you, I was able to find and close on an affordable house within 3 months and not have to extend my lease. Thanks for the present; I have it hung up in my bedroom, reminding me to relax.

I will send anyone I know that needs a realtor your way. Expect to hear from me in 6 or so years, when it's time to buy another house.

Thanks,
Jermaine B, Veteran
