I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: “Kathy was our real estate agent to both sell our Delaware County home and purchase our Chester County home. She is extremely bright, energetic, tenacious and knowledgeable. She helped us stage our home, gave great advice on pricing and negotiating strategy, and helped us close our sale quickly and very near our asking price (despite the emerging softness in the market at the time we sold). Tons of integrity. On top of the details. Very in touch with the market. Gave great advice and counsel. Highly recommended! We look forward to working with her on future real estate transactions!”

Mergers and Acquisitions
We had our house on the market for two years with very little traffic and not a single nibble – even after extensive ‘staging’. We then listed the house with Kath Scipione at the recommendation of friends, whose house she’d help sell almost overnight. With Kath’s energy and focus traffic increased dramatically, and she held open houses nearly every weekend. At her recommendation we got a professional appraisal and pre-sale inspections, which helped us better understand the value of the house and make some needed repairs that would have been issues later on.
After just three months with Kath in charge, we began serious discussions with a potential buyer and quickly came to an agreement. After such a long time, we are very pleased to have made the sale and are grateful to have had Kath’s help. She was very instrumental in helping us to get to this point, and we’d definitely recommend her to others.
