Kathy started in real estate buying her first rental property while still in college, the year was 1997. It wasn’t long after, in 1998, she realized a personal goal by joining a well-established real estate company as a broker. Learning the business of real estate on the inside of a respected brokerage inspired her to start her own realty company KJK Properties, in 2002.
Now 340+ real estate sales and ownership of 10 properties later, Kathryn has helped a multitude of people realize their financial potential with the purchase of their first house or rental unit. Kathryn’s professional and personal interests shape her skills and ability to relate to a wide-range of home ownership perspectives. Having two young children, Kathy understands the security and long-term vision young couples want. As a dog and cat lover, Kathy knows animal lovers love walkable neighborhoods and can guide you to suitable areas for those twice- a-day walks with Fido. Being a former chairwoman of the Woodstock Neighborhood Association, Kathryn identifies with those who long for a sense-of-place, or wish to give something back to their community. Real life experiences shape who we are, and Kathryn has a deep pool of them to draw upon and learn from.
Kathryn employs the professional knowledge, business experience, communication skills, and personality to work with buyers and sellers of real estate. Degrees in Psychology and Communications from Portland State are utilized when learning a home buyer’s priorities, negotiating the sale of commercial property, or educating attendees to speaking engagements.
Continually learning and teaching others is a passion for Kathryn. She founded Landlord Study Hall, a monthly forum where current and future landlords learn about the responsibilities of managing property and tenants, and receive the tools to succeed from professionals of property management, law, government, and non-profit housing associations like Multifamily
NW. Working on state committees and preparing for speaking engagements also sharpen the saw so clients can rely on Kathryn’s deep pool of real estate knowledge.
