"What my clients are saying about me"

Timothy Wright

"Kathleen has all the qualities realtors strive to have. She is definitely on top of her game. If you are looking to buy or sell a home or looking to invest GO WITH MONROE!"

Heather Nowlan

I would highly recommend Kathleen Monroe with Keller Williams as your personal Real Estate Agent whether you are buying or selling your Home. My husband and I are detail oriented, can be micromanagers (at times), impatient (as we needed to find a home quickly) and were first time home sellers at the same time.

Kathleen far exceeded and delivered above and beyond our expectations. She not only sold our home in a very short time frame, but was there through every step of the way. Kathleen is extremely knowledgeable and did her homework in analyzing the specific area my husband and I wanted to buy our next home in. She researched and showed us comparisons on the pricing, including both the history of the pricing in the neighborhood we wanted to buy in as well as the long term projections using the history of the comparisons in the neighborhood.

Because we sold our home in such a short time frame, and had not found our “dream home” yet,Kathleen found us a short term rental home.  While in the rental home, Kathleen found us a home to purchase. At the time we were looking inventory was very low in the neighborhood we were looking at, and there was another interested party in the home we wanted to purchase. Kathleen pulled out all the stops, even going so far as to write a “biography” on our family to submit to the sellers of the house we wanted. This combined with Kathleen’s keen sense of negotiation, her attention to detail and the personal touch she lends to each client and transaction, we purchased our “dream” home!

I think Kathleen is an outstanding Real Estate agent also because of her ability to relate to individuals she works with. My husband and I have opposite personalities…I am more of an emotional sale and my husband is very fact, value and reality based. Kathleen was able to cater to both of our wants and needs in the home purchase. Kathleen was very prompt in returning phone calls, texts and emails. She was there for us each time we wanted to meet in person. Kathleen scoured the neighborhood we were looking in, and because we limited ourselves to a small area, even sent postcards out to the streets in our zip code we liked looking to see if those homeowners might entertain selling their home. All of this in the time frame of 4 months. If you choose Kathleen as your agent, she will give you 100% and more.  She uses the term, “no stone will be left unturned” which is a perfect analogy for Kathleen!

Kathleen Monroe is an exceptional realtor! She helped me purchase a home upon relocating to Orange County and subsequently sell the home when I was getting divorced.  During an extremely stressful time for my family, Kathleen was a calming presence and a voice of reason. She did a fantastic job of staging our home and running interference for us with the buyers. She SOLD our home within ONE month when other realtors were quoting six months. She protected my interests in the divorce and I came to trust her insight and advice.  Kathleen is a great realtor,counselor and advisor!  I highly recommend her!

I am writing to express my pleasure with Real Estate Agent Kathleen Monroe, who represented me in the Short Sale of my property located at 23842 Via El Rocio in Mission Viejo, California.

Kathleen Monroe guided me through the entire process of the short sale! She went the extra mile and worked diligently in receiving offers, showing my home to prospective buyers, and closing the deal! I credit Kathleen Monroe with a smooth, stress free home selling experience!

This is the second real estate transaction with Kathleen Monroe, and never had I had such a pleasurable experience. Kathleen Monroe is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out! I could never had gotten through the short sale process without her expertise!

To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Kathleen Monroe and her expertise and I recommend her to everyone! She is by far, the best realtor in Orange County!

I want express my heartfelt thanks to you for your exceptional service in the sale of my home in Las Flores. Your experience and knowledge shined through every step of the way. Right after I interviewed you I knew that I had the made the right decision, not only because we shared so much in common but because you took a personal interest in making sure things went very smoothly during a very difficult time for me and my children.

The process of selling a home is never easy, especially in a declining market. Your outstanding negotiating skills helped me to get top dollar for my home.  You always took the extra step to ensure every detail was taken care of. Your high level of professionalism is unmatched by any other realtor. You kept me informed every step of the way. You always made me feel reassured with every decision and kept me smiling with your wonderful sense of humor.

I truly appreciate all you have done for me to help me sell my home and to purchase my new place. I will highly recommend you to all my friends, family and colleagues. Most of all, thank you for kindness and a new friendship that will continue long after the close of escrow.

If you are looking for a realtor, Kathleen Monroe is quite simply the best in the business. Her knowledge of the market, years of experience, and strategic thinking make her stand out among her peers. For her clients that means quick sales and good prices.

We had planned to have Kathleen represent us as buyers. We looked in the Las Flores/ Ladera Ranch area for a few years for just the right home, but before we found it, my husband was offered a great job in Northern California.

We quickly fell in love with a house up north, so we needed to sell quickly in order to afford it. Kathleen sold our house in less than a week, at a price that was higher than we had hoped for. She also came up with the strategy for making an offer on the home we wanted to buy, which stood out against multiple bidders. I am certain we would not be in our new, wonderful home were it not for her sound counsel and out-of-the-box thinking.

Even after the sale of our home, when we ran into problems packing for the move, Kathleen was there with a solution. She is organized, energetic, and ready for any curveballs that come her way. We just loved working with her! We cannot recommend her highly enough!


We really appreciate all that you've done for us. In my experience it is quite rare to find people to help you that are fully competent and actually make you feel like they are doing their best for you.
You're a gem!

I was retiring from the SAPD and had a very specific deadline for selling our home. Because we did not have air conditioning we knew we needed to sell within a month or wait until the winter, in which case I would need to get a post-retirement job. Kathleen Monroe took our short time deadline and bottom line on profit to heart and set to work. She accentuated all of our house’s positives while being honest about the lacking AC.

My wife and I found her to be honest, intuitive, resourceful, thick skinned and hard working. Kathleen sold our house and we closed escrow on the exact date of my retirement, making above our bottom line.

I have recommended Kathleen Monroe to my friends and co-workers. In fact it was a satisfied co-worker who recommended Kathleen to me.

Care and Professionalism...

Nothing Gets Past Kathleen!

It had been many years since I resided in California so that when I returned 20 years later, it was not the Orange County I left so we needed help. My husband and I were moving from Florida to California and had approximately 6 weeks to locate a rental in Orange County.  I was referred to Kathleen by a friend.  Kathleen got to work on locating a suitable rental and despite my moments of sheer panic as the move date loomed and few properties were available, Kathleen was a calming force, magically, I am convinced, locating properties that would work for us.  Once the lease was signed, Kathleen did not stop delivering service.  Prior to our move, she made sure we had all the information we needed, e.g., utility hook-ups, for a smooth transition and was at the house on our arrival from the airport, greeting us with champagne.   A year later, we were ready to buy a home.  We called Kathleen and she went to work finding us the perfect home and negotiating one heck of a deal, to boot. 

We have dealt with many real estate agents in the past and I can say that Kathleen, without exception, is a true real estate professional.  In addition to immense knowledge of the Orange County real estate market, Kathleen is also an exceptional and no-nonsense negotiator.  Nothing gets past her!

How do you decide on a Real Estate Agent?

I really didn’t know but decided that I would interview agents whorepresent people in both buying and selling homes in my neighborhood. After speaking with Kathleen Monroe, my wife and I were both so impressed with her accomplishments and knowledge of the business that we both decided she was the one

Kathleen brings years of knowledge and strategies with her as she represents youin the sale of your most valued investment. Kathleen evaluated our home, the current market and the available inventory currently on the market and advised us what her projected target price was. That price was well above what we estimated our sales price would be.  I initially had doubts that she would be able to accomplish her target price but realized that anything we received above our estimated price was a bonus.

Kathleen and her team of professionals hadanswers to allof my questions and/or problems that arose during this transaction. Her team consists of reasonable Contractors, Landscapers, Painters and so on who are just a phone call away for any repairs or odd jobs that may need to be done. These professionals are knowledgeable, dependable and reasonably priced. I was comfortable knowingcompetent tradesmen were doing all of the home repairs both before the property listed, and on issues that came up during the home inspection.

Kathleen is aware that this is a very stressful period in your life and the one thing that was most comforting to me was, she answers her phone when you call or returns your call in a short time. Shewas always upbeat and cheerfulwhen we spoke and never stressed which gave me confidence knowing she was protecting us during our transaction.

Kathleen knows what sells homes and why some homes sell over others.  She is constantly evaluating the market, suggesting tactics and advising of future strategies. The bottom line is with Kathleen’s determination we ultimately succeeded in selling our house for well over our initial conceived value. Kathleen paid for herself in the extra value she marketed our house for, and in my opinion she earned every penny of it.

I Highly Recommend Kathleen

“Kathleen’s expertise and knowledge as a realtor is unsurpassed. She makes even the most complex real estate transactions easier; in fact, we have used her services twice!  She is personable while being professional and creative with the ability to market your home to its best advantage. Whether you are a buyer or seller I highly recommend Kathleen and would not hesitate to use her services again.”

You found my "perfect" home!

I've recently had the pleasure of working with Kathleen Monroe as my realtor for the sale of my home and the purchase of another. Kathleen worked very hard to not only obtain the absolute highest selling price for my home but also worked very hard to find the "perfect" home for me. A few times I was very discouraged and Kathleen soldered on and never swayed in her search and always had a positive attitude. Not only did she stage for free and sell my house for top dollar, she then found the perfect house for me for a great price. She was there through the entire escrow process and she also made sure I had the best new home insurance policy. She also shrewdly negotiated with the seller for a couple additional items that were in my best interest. She did everything possible to insure the new home transaction was smooth. You won’t find a better realtor than Kathleen Monroe.

If anyone would like to talk to me re Ms. Monroe's superior skills, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Kathleen Monroe went above and beyond the call of duty as our Realtor

October 15, 2013

Kathleen Monroe went above and beyond the call of duty as our Realtor. Kathleen made sure she took the
time to listen to our family’s specific needs. She knew that we did not want to leave our home but had to sell it because of our family situation. She knew we wanted to stay in close proximity of our children’s schools when we had to relocate. Kathleen did not rush us or make us feel like we had to sign with her. She gave us information and met with us to discuss all of our options. She always wanted to make sure our best interests were in the front of any step in the process.

I recommend Kathleen if you need help to sell your home or if you need to buy a home. She takes the time to
check every detail. She helps you with finding resources to help you in the process; such as a gardener, house keeper, painter, moving company, boxes and will personally help stage your home to enhance it. If you need information about schools or the neighborhood she will find it for you. She is an amazing negotiator
and communicator. 

Kathleen was able to find a buyer for our home within one week of listing it and also found us a wonderful
home to rent in our same neighborhood within our price range. Kathleen gives the personal touch to a sensitive and stressful time.

Thank you Kathleen for all you did for me personally and for my family. We couldn’t have done it with out

You are Truly a Blessing

You are Truly a Blessing!

Thank you for all you have done for our family. We are loving our new house and are so grateful for your hard work and dedication. You are truly a blessing.

Kathleen was our agent to buy our current home, and when we met with her to discuss our current needs, we knew she was, once again, the right agent. We couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with us on our real estate needs. In this market, we needed to sell our current home before we could put an offer on a new house. Her staging was amazing, and we had so many great compliments on our home. After several offers, we had a buyer that allowed us to rent back.

Once we sold our house, we were nervous about ever finding something that met our wants and needs.

She took us to many homes to help us identify THE perfect house for our family. She was patient and encouraging, as we wondered if we would find something with such low inventory. In a competitive market, her experience was key to us being the "winning" buyer.

Kathleen exemplifies professionalism. She was a partner during the process and truly made our experience of selling and buying a seamless process.

Thank you, Kathleen, for being a part of our dreams.

The Granger Family

By far the Best
