"Kate was such a breath of fresh air in a very stressful process. Her professionalism and caring attitude really helped to simplify the process of selling my mother’s home of 40 years. I was extremely impressed with her constant communication and her attention to detail. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone buying or selling a home in your area.”
"We feel like we made a longtime friend in meeting Kate. She is a top Realtor! She helped us sell our house on Old Amherst Rd and we were able to buy our retirement condo. We could not have done it without her! We have recommended her to many of our friends!”
-Fred and Kay Weinberg, Sunderland
"Kate Hogan is one of the most completely professional, personable, and patient people we have ever worked with. If we had had a problem, she would have fixed it before we even knew about it. A highly recommended buyer’s agent. We will call her when we decide to sell in the future.”
-Jim & Peggy Ganatta, Amherst

-Ronan and Nuala O’Brien, Hadley
"We loved working with Kate! Besides being a great resource, Kate was a lot of fun! She never made us feel pressured to hurry and buy and she was always available when we had a problem or question. When we were ready to buy, she was there every step of the way and helped the transaction go very smoothly.
We have a new home, but we’ll miss seeing Kate and touring around looking at houses – just because she was so wonderful to work with!”
-Carly Kinnas and Sergei Skorupa, Montague
"As first time home buyers, we were very much in the dark about this process, but Kate went above and beyond to be helpful and supportive of us. She was very accommodating to our busy teaching schedules. Often we wondered how Kate could possibly have any other clients because she was doing so much for us! We are both happy with our new home and can’t thank you enough.”
-Laurie and Katrina, Amherst
"You have a wonderful asset to your organization with Kate Hogan as your Real Estate agent. She is a very hard working, knowledgeable, and conscientious worker. She kept me informed on a daily basis and I appreciate that. She had several open houses for me and even gave up her time to try to help me find another place to live. I have and certainly will recommend Kate and Sawicki to friends and acquaintances.”
-Carole Merrill, Hadley
"We called Kate after our house been on the market for almost a year with another agent without selling. When we met her we instantly liked her personality and her professionalism. We discussed marketing options, pricing, and our time line. Kate was always there for us with feedback on showings, she did open houses, and kept us in touch with what was happening with the market in Sunderland. Low and behold, we received an offer on our house of 28 years. She was with us from beginning to end! We would not hesitate to recommend her to everyone we know!”
-Paul and Peggy Bolte, Sunderland
"Thanks, Kate! We couldn’t have done it without you!”
-Barb and Tom Ostiguy, South Hadley
"Kate helped us sell our house on S Plain Rd after we had a bad experience with another agent. She was great to work with. We were first time home sellers and she walked us through the whole process. We were able to move onto our next phase in life as a result of her help. Thanks, Kate! Stay in touch!”
-Will and Ellen Rice, Sunderland
"Kate is an agent who clearly cares about her clients and the property she sells. She was there every step of the way and in constant communication in the purchase of my new home in Amherst and then a few years later with the sale of that house, and helped me purchase in Wilbrham. I would highly recommend her.”
-Gail Harris, Amherst & Wilbraham
"Kate is delightful to work with. Our best interests were definitely her highest priority. She was prompt, courteous, very knowledgeable, insightful, and dedicated... a true real estate professional that we now consider our good friend. We have worked with many different realtors over the years and Kate IS the best! We highly recommend her!”
-Laurie Stamell & Doug Challenger, Pelham
"Kate is my all time favorite Realtor. After trying for two years to sell my rental property on Depot Road in Leverett with two other realtors, Kate came to the rescue! And was able to secure a buyer for us within the first month of the property being on the market. Anytime I had a question, she responded immediately. She then helped my husband and I sell another property on E Pleasant St, all in 2016. She is wonderful! I consider her a friend and would highly recommend her to everyone I know!’
-Barbara Zecchi, Leverett and Amherst
"Kate was wonderful to work with! As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what I was doing. Kate was patient and did a great job walking me through the process. She was easy to talk to – I need to buy another house so I can chat with Kate again. We will definitely call Kate if we ever decide to sell and upgrade!”
-Katie Becofsky, Shutesbury
"Kate Hogan is a gem! She helped our daughter and son-in-law buy their first home and this year helped us buy our retirement home. We made a fast friend with Kate. You can just tell she loves her job. Thanks, Kate!”-Martha & Richard Nicoll, Shutesbury
