I interviewed four firms and selected Katy Bradfield and Lorraine Harrell because they were honest and direct with me and provided the best recommendations for preparing property for sale. They were incredibly responsive and stayed on top of a difficult buyer and buyer's agent. They helped move furniture, meet contractors and kept the process moving. I could not have hired a better team! They improved our lives by helping us make the best decisions on both selling and buying sides of the process.Eric W
Katy did an excellent job as our real estate agent – and our move was tricky. We bought our neighbor’s house, we were staying in the area, and the sellers of our house were renting our old house until we sold it. In addition, we had purchased a side lot that we were selling with our old house unless the price was too low, in which case, we would transfer to our new property. She managed the confusion and complexities of the transaction with grace and did not let it affect the sales process. Somehow, she kept everything tied up neatly for the potential buyers. When we called and said that we felt traffic was low through the house, she would organize an open house. I think we had 2 or 3. She also advised us well in negotiation with the first family to put in an offer. Because we had purchased our new home before selling the old one, we were eager to sell. Nevertheless, as negotiations progressed, she just thought we could do better, and she was right. That deal fell through but we ended up selling for more than that original negotiated price – and to better neighbors. She kept in mind the fact that we would be neighbors with the buyers of our old home and managed the transaction accordingly. We could not have asked for more. Great job Katy!Paige P

Katy was incredible. We were hundreds of miles away trying to sell our house and she took care of everything that we could not due to distance. She also dealt with a difficult buyer with grace and expertise. I could not be happier and would call her immediately if I had another property to sell.Michael V
We loved working with Katy and give her our highest recommendation. We were most impressed with her professionalism, her personality, and her expertise. Professionalism: Katy knows real estate inside and out. She made the process easy and straightforward. She is very organized and kept us on track each step of the way. She was always prepared with the information we needed, and followed through for us with every question or concern, even after closing. Personality: Katy was a joy to work with. She was very generous with her time and was kind and thorough in answering all our “newbie” questions. She made us feel at home even before we had a home! You can tell from the first time you meet her that she loves helping people. Expertise: Katy grew up in Charlotte so not only does she know all the neighborhoods, she knows their history and how they have changed through time. She was an immense help as we worked to figure out which one was best for us, sharing her knowledge and providing further information with resources. We are so happy with the home, neighborhood and neighbors that Katy helped us find!Matthew and Jennie L
Katy was wonderful!! She is professional, detailed, educated about the market. Because of the relocation and my husband not being in town, I was under a lot of stress. Katy was a big help in making the real estate process less stressful. She was always available for my silly questions. Katy is the best realtor. She makes a very hard job run smoothly! Thanks to her for all her help.Abbe S
I have worked with many Realtors and Katy is truly at the top of her field. Her level of service and expertise in the Charlotte market are exceptional. She is highly analytical, has a deep marketing expertise that she executes on flawlessly, and is an excellent negotiator. She is also incredibly personable and a pleasure to work with. I was moving with a relocation package for a position with a Biotech in San Francisco. Katy navigated the many additional steps that relocation companies require with ease. We managed to price, stage, and list within an incredibly short timeframe, and I accepted an offer within 7 days of posting to MLS. I cannot express how appreciative I am for her expertise and the level of service that she provided while completing this sale.Brandon J
Katy Bradfield exceeded our expectations for a realtor!! She went above and beyond the help make my purchase a smooth transaction, especially as issues arose with the sale of my home in Indiana. Her knowledge of the real estate business and her professionalism are exemplary. If the need arises in my future for a realtor, I most definitely will seek the expertise of Katy Bradfield.Roger J
Katy Bradfield is the most professional real estate agent with whom we’ve worked since we started out as new homeowners3 houses ago (in 3 different states). She is a very capable person who, from the start, gives the impression that she can handle anything and she’ll let nothing stop her… and backs this up with action. At the same time she is personable, humble, caring and warm. It is a pleasure to have her good guidance through our search for a new home in Ballantyne.Art and Nancy C
We listed our home in late June and had an acceptable offer by early July. Katy helped us price the house right and the marketing plan was great. Inspections and minor repairs took place on schedule just as we had hoped. The week of the scheduled closing, Katy calls to let us know our buyers have had a problem with the final credit check with their lender. This is when Katy went into overdrive. She was in communication with the lender’s agent and the lender daily for updates. We went through numerous neglected timelines from our buyer’s lender. Katy proved to be the ultimate professional as the situation became stressful and frustrating for all involved. Ultimately, we had to walk away from this deal. Our home become an active listing again. Katy’s follow up and proactive approach with each prospect was outstanding. By this time, we had moved out of state so we relied on Katy to check on our home as the season changed to winter. In December, we received another acceptable offer, contingent on the sale of their home. Once again, Katy stayed in communication with the buyer’s agent, the attorney and lender of our buyer’s buyer to keep us on schedule and protect us from potential problems. This time we encountered unexpected problems with the credit of our buyer’s buyer. Katy had a thorough understanding of the daily status because she built a relationship with the lender involved because of her professionalism and communication. We finally closed on the sale of our home a couple of weeks later than originally planned (the second time). Katy become more than a real estate agent but a trusted friend. She is kind, thoughtful, professional, thorough, detailed, knowledgeable and willing to go to the extra mile. We would recommend Katy to everyone!Lori and Terry E
Katy Bradfield was heaven sent and just what we needed. We have dealt with a lot of agents in the past 10 years due to our many relocations – Katy would be in our top tier and one of the best we have dealt with. Her service was exemplary, she was attentive to our needs and concerns, and she always had our best interest in mind. I will definitely refer her to other and use her again if needed.Chika W
Katy is lovely, knowledgeable, patient and honed in on exactly what we were looking for for our first family home. I highly recommend Katy for her professionalism throughout the entire process. Katy treats her clients like family. She is thorough and makes herself available at her clients’ convenience. Katy was fabulous. Thorough, understanding, patient and detail-oriented. We would highly recommend her!Jaclyn C
Katy was very helpful in pointing me to various local vendors for carpet, paint and general repairs to the home prior to putting it on the market. This was critical as I live 100 miles away from the property.Larry S
