Katie Karczewski, Principal Partner, Realtor
Katie is known for her personalized service and for going above and beyond for her clients. She believes that in order to achieve a goal you must be willing to work hard, be organized, and focus on the subject at hand. In 2015 the Katie K Team achieved the goals they set out to hit by achieving a total sales volume of $28 Million. The average selling price of the homes Katie sold increased from $387,432 to $403,234. A sign that the market is returning to that of a seller’s market. A switch from the past years of short sales, which created a strong buyers market. The market is always changing and she stays right on top of that, which in turn benefits her clientele. In 2015 almost 28% of the sales came from homes that were not on the market. Her strong presence in the area allowed her the opportunity to bring Sellers/Buyers together before going to market. She has consistently been a top agent in Grand Rapids and West Michigan for more than a couple of decades and ranks in the top one percent of agents statewide.
