A fifth-generation San Franciscan, I have been an active member of the Marin community since 1963 and the mother of the five Hughes’ children – Ann, Blaire, Michael, Sam and Katie – all successful adults. I was educated at Mercy, Burlingame and Sonoma State where I majored in English. With over 28 years in real estate, I have had the pleasure to work with so many people and help them achieve their goals.
Because I have assisted so many buyers and sellers, I know that each situation is different; buyers and sellers have specific needs whether it is the school district, budget limitations, community programs or a geographic preference. I also know the challenges families face when preparing a home for sale and can help make the process a lot easier. With a team of service providers such as inspectors, gardeners, stagers and general contractors, I try to ease the process of buying or selling your home.
One client said, “Kathleen is a gem!! I have worked with her on three separate real estate transactions in the last 10 years. If I had another property to buy or sell, I'd call her in an instant. I recently completed the sale of a house at Hamilton. I think it was on the market for about 10 days. Other properties in the neighborhood have been for sale for months.
She is very pragmatic and will give you excellent advice to the extent that she can. She will keep you grounded in reality. She is extremely thorough and always seemed to be one step ahead of me. During my last sale there were a couple of instances where I had some specific concerns regarding disclosures. When I brought them up with Kathleen she had already dealt with them. She is my "realtor for life"!
Kathleen earned her Broker Associate status, is a Senior Specialist and a member of the California Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.
