I could not imagine a better realtor than Katie Witry. She is highly detail-oriented, incredibly hard-working, an excellent negotiator, has a great sense of the market and can get along with anyone! I urge anyone buying or selling a house to work with her and her team--they are the best!
My wife and I have bought and sold 7 properties over the years, and we can both say Katie Witry is the best agent we have ever worked with. Her knowledge, experience, and understanding of client's needs far exceeds expectations, and makes the challenging process of buying and selling homes and lot easier. Residing out of state, we bought the home with our son knowing we would be selling in 5 years after he completed his degree. We met and started working with Katie a couple of years in advance of selling the property knowing we would be on a tight schedule when our son graduated. During our first meeting Katie, in addition to discussing her approach to marketing the house, she identified tax and insurance savings we could capture and provided us strategies to reduce these annual costs by significant amounts. These were areas our original buying agent should have guided us, but her lack of knowledge and attention prevented us from reaping this benefit. Long before we signed a contract, Katie was looking out for our interests and helping us navigate the unique conditions of owning property in New Orleans. When we listed with Katie, she came armed with volumes of current and historical market data, and took the time to show us competing properties so we could come up with the best price to move quickly and achieve our expectations for return on investment. Katie offered excellent ideas on staging the house and other minor improvements to draw attention to the special features of our home. The marketing plan worked well, and after we received an offer, she provided expert guidance during the back and forth negotiations to maximize our return. Post acceptance she identified contractors to address inspection repairs and helped us with the title company and close documents as our son had to move out of state before the close. Overall we are extremely happy with Katie's work and would not hesitate to use her again if we were purchasing a property in NOLA.
Cannot recommend Katie more highly. We have worked with Katie on two occasions, once as buyers and once as sellers. Most recently, she skillfully negotiated our sale in uptown NO, which included counter offers, many emotions and several repairs to our home. Her network of tradesmen (with which she has impressive scheduling power) was highly valuable to us as well as being reasonably priced. Katie has not only a keen knowledge of the New Orleans market, but also an ability to negotiate tough transactions and all personalities involved with grace and professionalism. She also has enough experience to sense when market conditions may be changing such that you get the best purchase price possible whether you are buying or selling. We did not work much with her partners at the Witry collective but they all seem great too. Highly recommend Katie to anyone buying or selling in NOLA!
Katie Witry - who represented us as the seller of our historic home in New Orleans' Central City neighborhood - is amazingly competent and able about the real estate business, while being extraordinarily understanding about the personal and human implications of her work on her clients and their families, homes, and communities. The kind of business acumen that she has - understanding the market and the dynamics of negotiations that begin at the offer but extend through inspections and through closing - is rarely matched by the decency that she simultaneously possesses. She knows that homes - especially New Orleans homes - are more than mere commodities but instead vessels of our human experiences, memories, dreams, and history. I couldn't recommend her more heartily.
We had such an excellent experience with our first home purchase with Katie Witry and the Witry Collective. Katie is incredibly knowledgeable about local historical preservation and has a deep understanding of the architectural details that make the homes in New Orleans so unique. Because of this, she was able to offer us informative guidance on both the features of the homes and neighborhoods (the building materials, styles, and history), as well as the home-buying process. She was extremely responsive, patient with our search, and showed us a variety of options within our preferences and budget to help us narrow and guide our interests. When we identified the house we wanted, Katie was quick and helpful in explaining the process, advocating for our needs, and guiding us through negotiations. We are very grateful that we were able to lean on her honesty, expertise, and care for her clients and community from beginning to end of the process. Thank you for everything, Katie!
Katie is a true professional in Real Estate. Having been involved in Commercial Real Estate for many years, I know and understand when an agent brings true value to the table. Ms. Witry does not set the "Bar", she is the "Bar". Ms. Witry begins the process by getting to know you, what you believe your vision of your needs are, and then begins what she calls the process. Over time, you often learn to refine your vision based on reality and honest discussion.
Ms. Witry points out with great patience the positives and the negatives of each property presented. With great patience and with the time given, you and Ms. Witry will narrow down to the property that best suits you at the price you feel the most comfortable. I have never experienced this type of care, knowledge and patience with such a professional who wants to their client to be satisfied with their choice, regardless of the time it takes, and the size of the purchase. You always feel like the end result is not the making of commissions, but the satisfaction of the client.
Katie exudes professionalism, hard work, and a genuine care for her clients. At our first meeting she was already prepared with an entire binder of information on our house and competing properties in the market. I felt secure in her knowledge from the first moment. She went above and beyond the call of duty to sell our home going so far as to manage the procurement and execution of over 5 separate contractors on our home. I really don't have enough words to express how thankful I am to this powerhouse of a lady. Truly a delight to work with and 100% my only realtor in the future.
Katie was the key to our success in purchasing a condo in New Orleans. We gave her exact requirements as to what we were seeking and by the time we met her she had identified the small number of properties that met our requirements. She showed them to us in one day. Her incredible knowledge of the city, its properties, and her fellow professionals gave us the opportunity to buy the property. And her services have not ended with the purchase. She is doing all the small things that make her truly exceptional, from picking up mail when we are not there, to actually picking up furniture for us. She will be an on-going resource for us in the Big Easy and, more than that, a friend.
Katie facilitated the sale of our commercial/residential property
and was truly great to work with. From start to finish she was incredibly responsive with a vast knowledge of the market as well as the whole process. I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
This is my second time working with Katie and I couldn't recommend her any higher. Katie's knowledge of real estate and professionalism are exemplary, but her integrity and kindness are the reasons why I've worked with her twice and will continue to do so for any future needs. I trust Katie completely and she always has her clients' best interest in mind, even if it means sacrificing her own bottom line.
