"We would highly recommend hiring Kathy as your trusted real estate advocate."

We cannot say enough great things about Kathy as a person and realtor. From the very first conversation to the days after closing, Kathy was engaged and attentive to our needs. Her response time would lead you to believe we were her only client, and the education she provided throughout the process made it so much easier than we could have ever imagined. Kathy truly cares about what her client's goals when it comes to buying and selling a house. She demonstrated a level of professional courtesy, with a personal touch that made our experience in this typically stressful process, very enjoyable and exciting. We would highly recommend anyone from the first time home buyer, to the family that is constantly on the move, to make the easiest decision in real estate, and that is hiring Kathy as your trusted real estate advocate. We feel we have found our "forever home", but if we were to move again I know our first call would be to Kathy Moniello. Katie and Craig C.

"I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, especially those new to the area."

This move was the 6th home my husband and I have purchased. It was by far the easiest and most pleasurable transaction yet. Kathy is a delight to work with. She listens well. Kathy repeatedly demonstrated the ability to translate our wishes into tactfully worded requests that led to a relaxed and  enjoyable closing. She was able to make recommendations for services and vendors in the area that made the move easier and affordable. She gave freely of her time and expertise about the area we have moved to. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, especially those new to the area. -Helena and John D.

"I was about to give up, and then met Kathleen."

After searching and meeting with several realtors, I was about to give up on listing my house ( one even suggested to not sell and to just like the house). But then I met Kathleen. Other realtors wanted to list my home for 30,000-40,000 less with no compromised. They just stated it would not sell.  With Kathleen she heard us and not only did we listed at what we wanted to sell at, It got an offer the same day. Her listing, pictures on the website even made me want to place an offer. She really did an amazing job. Not only did she help sell our home, she helped us buy a new one. She really is a fantastic agent. She gives ideas/opinions but does not push. She listened to what we wanted and gave it to us. Kathleen was not just there for the commission, she really cares and goes above and beyond. Don't miss out on this one! Francine and Rene M.

"We had multiple offers and went under contract in just two days with an offer over list price!"

I contacted Kathy after seeing her ad in our church bulletin. The ad mentioned that she was a Senior Real Estate Specialist who worked with Seniors and their families. That was exactly what I was looking for! My mother had recently moved out of her house and into an assisted-living facility. I  was overwhelmed with the task of cleaning out 40 years of accumulation and getting the house on the market. Kathy’s guidance was instrumental in determining what needed to be done to get the house market ready. She recommended what furniture we should leave in the house as well as the placement of it. She also advised me on what repairs were critical and which were not as important. With Kathy’s assistance, we were able to get the house cleaned out and on the market quickly. Kathy recommended a competitive asking price which accounted for the fact that the house was in good condition but required several updates. As a result, we had multiple offers and went under contract in just two days with an offer over list price! Once the house was under contract, Kathy also coordinated and monitored the necessary activities, including the inspection, as well as recommending and introducing me to an excellent attorney for handling the closing. Overall, I am extremely happy with Kathy. I could not have picked a better agent! Brian H.

"She comes prepared and with a smile."

Kathy is a pleasure to work with. She is kind, resourceful, responsive, and is willing to put in the extra effort. We setup a call during my lunch hour to review homes and condos in my price range in the Branford area. She also came out twice on Memorial Day weekend to see multiple homes with me  and my family. My family had nothing but good things to say about Kathy. She comes prepared and with a smile to every showing and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future. Daniel P

"She made the process as easy as it could be."

Kathy is a very pleasant and patient agent. From our first conversation to the closing, she was very responsive and diligent. She always took the extra step to make sure my questions were answered. I highly recommend Kathy and appreciate her diligence and kindness. She made the process as easy as  it could be. Katie S.

"Kathy created inventory where none existed."

I met Kathy when I contacted her to show me a condo that I found on Zillow.  I liked it a lot, and we put in an offer.  Unfortunately, someone put in a slightly higher offer.  But Kathy was not going to let me walk away disappointed. She got to work creating inventory where none existed. She  identified owners in the same complex who were currently renting their units to tenants. She contacted their agents to ask if their clients would consider selling. We were thrilled when one agent contacted her saying that the owner would be willing to sell the unit! We submitted an offer that was quickly accepted. I just closed on the sale and couldn’t be happier to finally be moving into my own home! With the purchase price that Kathy was able to negotiate, I am confident that I have made a great investment and know that I have taken a big step toward financial security for my family. I couldn’t have done it without Kathy. Thank you!!!! - Liz W.

"Kathy was phenomenal!"

Kathy was phenomenal! She was so easy to work with, really knew exactly what types of houses to bring me to and just made the entire process seamless. I would recommend anyone to work with Kathy. -Jesse G.

"Kathy is the consummate professional."

Kathy was truly a pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgeable of the process of selling a house. After her first walk thru of the property she made minor changes to furniture placement, suggested “shampooing” the roof and other arrangements to make the house show the best. The house was  leased with about 1 year left. She worked with the tenants (they had resided there almost 14 years) assuring them the lease would be honored. Also put together a flyer and distributed to the neighbors about the house sale. The question came up about the tenants and Kathy assured that they would remain. She held an open house attended by over 25 parties. The buzz from the open house brought the people who ultimately purchased the house. Kathy’s asking price was right on. The accepted offer was 99.37% of the asking price. I am from out of state and Kathy recommended a local attorney who turned out to be prompt, efficient and a delight to deal with. It was the smoothest and fastest closing I have ever been involved in. Kathy is the consummate professional. She took a process that can be bumpy, frustrating and time consuming and made it a smooth transition from beginning to end. From initial handshake to closing was less than two months. Five stars all around!!! - David S. 

"This is a memory that Kathy helped us create."

Kathy was such a delight to work with! She made our first home purchase run smoothly with little to no stress. She is very attentive and responsive to any inquires, concerns, or questions. This is a memory that Kathy helped us create and we appreciate her! We highly recommend Kathy! - Holly and Justin

"She was so positive, pleasant and resourceful throughout the entire process." 

Like many seniors, I no longer wanted the responsibility of maintaining a home. I knew I wanted to move into a one-level condo, but didn’t know where to start. With Kathy’s help and guidance, I was able to accomplish my goal in a very short time frame. She guided me on resolving some  maintenance issues on my home before it was listed. She located contractors and facilitated the work. Kathy was also very helpful during the inspection process and we were able to resolve everything to the mutual satisfaction of myself and the buyer. She helped me arrange movers, furniture disposal and storage, relieving me of a lot of stress, worry and work. With regard to the purchase of the condo, Kathy searched new listings and arranged showings. When we found the perfect condo, she guided me on my offer and negotiations. She communicated with my lender, attorney, and accountant to help me make sure the transaction was aligned with my estate plan. I could not be happier in my new home, and could not have done it without Kathy’s help. She was so positive, pleasant and resourceful throughout the entire process. I definitely give her 5 stars and wish I could give more. - Mary Ann P.

"Her response time was great."

My husband and I have been looking for a retirement home and saw a property in Madison that looked interesting. We found Kathy Moniello, a premier agent on Zillow, and contacted her to schedule a time to see the home. Her response time was great – she got back to me within an hour to let me know  that our time was confirmed. When I needed to change the date due to my husband’s work schedule, she again was very responsive and accommodating in rescheduling for us. We are from out of state, and knowing that we were unfamiliar with the area, Kathy told us about the town and recommended some restaurants for our lunch before heading back. The next day I contacted her to let her know that my husband left something important behind at the property. She said, “no problem, I will go right now to get it and will ship it back to you.” She shipped it priority mail and sent me the tracking number! I will definitely recommend Kathy to my friends and family looking to buy or sell on the shoreline. - Andrea R.

"Kathy went beyond the call of duty!"

She was always available and able to meet or talk when I needed her in my extremely packed life. She made extra effort, researched taxes and building permits to help answer questions I had about the house I was contracted to buy.. five star effort no make it six. -Scott W.

"I highly recommend Kathy."

We are new to the area and Kathy did a wonderful job of showing us the area as well as several great buying options. She spent a lot of time with us, she was highly knowledgeable and she was a pleasure to spend our time with. I highly recommend Kathy!! - Sue C
