About Kathleen

Kathy Betancourt Web Final Dec14When it comes time to make an offer on a home, you need not to go about the process alone. Rather, you can team up with an expert in this area to ensure you are led on the right path and will end up seeing the successful results that you had originally hoped to see. Buying a home is no walk in the park. Between getting to know the area a bit better and making sure you gain the home for a reasonable price, there are dozens steps that you must take and can’t afford to miss one. Because you are busy with work and maintaining your family, you simply don’t have the time or patience to deal with everything involved in a home purchase. That is why more and more people are looking to hire professional help in the form of a real estate agent.

My name is Kathleen Betancourt and I would be happy to step in as your agent at this time. Before I began working in the real estate industry, I worked in the United States Coast Guard. I specialize in military relocations. I know how overwhelming it can be to up and move to a completely new area. That is why I want to be there for you every step of the way making the transition to the new area as smooth as possible for you, your spouse and your children. I am passionate about serving my clients no matter what their particular transaction might entail. This passion certainly shows. I am one of few agents who cares more deeply for the relationship I build with my clients as opposed to the commission I’ll make off the sale. With over 10 years of experience serving Englewood, Placida, Port Charlotte and other nearby cities, you can trust that I will be the ideal agent to help you through this process.

Experience

As an agent who’s an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.
