Kathy Ricketts

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker

Earning the trust of my clients and their families for over 28 years... WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT ME

 

Dear Kathy,

     As you know, settling an estate is a time consuming process, especially when a property is involved.  Thank you for your support during this process and for bringing the sale of my Uncle's house to a quick and successful conclusion! 

     With suggestions based on your long experience, we were able to bring the house to market quickly, arrange for a "wildly" successful open house, and find a buyer practically overnight.  Certainly your knowledge of the housing prices in the area was a great benefit.  I also appreciate your help running all that water to meet the requirements of the septic system test!

     Best wished to you.  Thanks again for your professional expertise.

                                                                                 Sincerely,

                                                                                       Marie Hewett

 

     If you are in need of a real estate agent, Kathy Ricketts is experienced, knowledgeable, hard-working and straight forward.  She is conscientious and professional while always being protective of her clients' interests.  We jokingly told Kathy that she shows the determination of a pit bull when it comes to her clients and we intended that as the highest of compliments.  She does not give up and that is the kind of agent you need.

     We would highly recommend Kathy Ricketts for any type of real estate transaction.

                                              Ann and Tom Urquhart

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

     KATHY WAS ONE OF THREE REAL ESTATE AGENTS WHO CAME TO TALK WITH US ABOUT REPRESENTING US IN THE SALE OF OUR HOME.  WE WERE IMPRESSED WITH HER HONESTY, FORTHRIGHTNESS AND WILLINGNESS TO LISTEN AND WORK WITH US.

     KATHY SAT WITH US AND WAS VERY HONEST ABOUT HOW OUR CONDO WOULD SELL.  SHE OFFERED SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO BEST MARKET OUR HOME AND, TOGETHER WITH OUR INPUT, DETERMINED A FAIR PRICE.

     SHE WORKED WITH US THE VERY EVENING WE DECIDED TO USE HER AS OUR SALES AGENT.  ALL PAPER WORK WAS COMPLETED AND PICTURES WERE TAKEN BEFORE SHE LEFT.  WE KNOW KATHY WAS ALWAYS IN OUR CORNER WORKING TO DO THE BEST FOR US.

     THE DAY AFTER OUR HOME WENT ON THE MARKET, WE HAD A FULL CASH OFFER.  KATHY STAYED WITH US THROUGHT THE WHOLE PROCESS FROM BEGINNING TO END.  WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN A VERY STRESSFUL SITUATION WAS MADE EFFORTLESS DUE TO KATHY'S ATTENTION TO DETAIL.

     WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND KATHY TO ANYONE THINKING OF PURCHASING OR SELLING PROPERTY.  SHE IS THE MOST HONEST, HARDWORKING, NO-NONSENSE REAL ESTATE AGENT WE'VE DEALT WITH AND WE HAVE PURCHASED AND SOLD FIVE PROPERTIES.

Hi friends, (sent to facebook)

     I wanted to take a minute to introduce you to someone.  Her name is Kathy Ricketts.  The reason I am doing this is because I feel that it is right to recognize people who excel in their profession.  Kathy is a real estate agent in western NY (with Realtyusa).  She worked with my husband and I when we were searching for our first home.

     I know that when it comes to utilizing the services of a professional, it is hard to know if you have someone who is reputable and will serve your needs above theirs.  Kathy did just that for us.  Whether you are looking to sell a home or purchase one, Kathy is the person for the job.  She has been in the real estate business for the last 30 years.  She was just amazing!  With interest rates as low as they are now, there are a lot of incentives to purchase.  Kathy walked us through the whole process.  She answered all of our questions and was willing to walk us through the homes we were interested in at all hours of the day or night.

     She did not ask me to send this to you either.  It was entirely my idea.  Bad news always travels faster than good new.  I am doing my part to send you positive feedback about a wonderful experience in my life.

     So, whether you are looking to buy or sell now, or are happy where you are for now, keep her information and give her a call if you want to know more about the valuable work she does for her clients.  Her email address is: kathyricke@aol.com and her number is 716-308-0956.  If you have a real estate agent that you know and trus, pass their name along to your friends so they can have a positive home buying (or selling) experience.

     If you have any questions for me, let me know I am happy to give you more details!

"Dear Kathy, Thank you so much for all of your help - again. Just like the first time you worked very hard for us. We felt so confident and comfortable that things were being handled properly and in a timely fashion. It was a whirlwind like the first time. If you are ever in the neighborhood, please stop and say quot;helloquot;. Thanks again."
    ~ Very Sincerely, The Drews Family ps. You will most definitely get any referrals we can give!

"Dear Kathy, I want to express my thanks and gratitude for the fine job you did in selling my home in Brookins Green. I feel that you went beyond what would normally be expected to help in facilitating this sale. Since I no longer was located in New York, you automatically assumed the responsibility of handling the details necessary to close on this sale. Many of these tasks would not be the responsibility of the selling agent but you stepped forward and assumed them without me asking. You also were honest and direct with me from the first time we met. You gave me a pricing range and did not waiver after securing the listing. This most impressed me. I also want to thank your husband, Jay and his office for a most professional closing. Choosing his office to handle the closing was the second best thing, second only to chosing you. There were no unpleasant surprises at any stage of the process. I would throroughly recommend you to any of my relatives or associates in the WNY area. As a token of my appreciation, I am enclosing two dinner certificates for restaurants that Sharon and I have enjoyed in the past. We hope that you and Jay will use these to help in our celebration of a successful sale and closing. The both of you earned it. Sharon and I extend our thanks for a job well done."

    ~ Mr. and Mrs. Randy Matteson...

"Kathy made herself available to us 24/7 - even when she was out of town. That kind of committment is what defines truly superior service!"

"Kathy Ricketts did a very professional job."
    ~ Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Fitch

"Dear Kathy, I just wanted to type you a little message to say THANK YOU... for all your patience with my endless questions and to also thank you for going out of your way to help me get myself on trak with the sale of my house. I don't think this deal would have gone through without your input and connections and I will be eternally grateful. I am forever dropping your name to everyone I know...and I am hoping to drum you up some business in return for all your help!!!!. Just wanted to say "Thanks" for all you've done for me. You're more than just my agent; you've become my friend and I am so very grateful for all your help. Just thought you'd like to know that."
    ~ Always, J.

"Dear Kathy, Just wanted to thank you for the outstanding service you provided my family during our move to France. With only four weeks to work with to sell my house before we left for France, it was amazing that you were able to accomplish this task during the typically slow real estate market. While other real estate agencies said they doubted they could sell our home for the price we were looking for, you told me without hesitation that it could be done by your agency. It was your conviction to close the sale that convinced me to use you as our agent. I was even more impressed by the service you provided in helping out after we moved to France. As with any real estate deal, minor problems come up in the final closing of the home. You took care of these problems without any difficulty. This was a great reassurance for some one who is living overseas. Thanks again for the great work!"
    ~ G.F....

"We were very pleased with the services rendered and would recommend to our friends. Kathy is a real asset to your company."
    ~ Mr. and Mrs. Robert Thomson

    ~ Warmly, Drs. Barb and Ron Trolley

"I would like to take the opportunity to express my appreciation to Kathy Ricketts for the excellent job she did in representing me in both the purchase and the sale of my home in Williamsville, NY. I had the pleasure of working with Kathy in my search for my first home. She listened to my needs as a first time homebuyer, and her extensive knowledge of the housing market and the entire home buying process made the purchasing process very easy for me. When it came time to sell my home, Kathy displayed the utmost level of professionalism and an unwavering patience in the face of a challenging sale. I would definitely recommend Kathy Ricketts to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Western New York area. If I ever decide to move back to that area, Kathy would be one of the first people I would call."
    ~ Rich Joubert

"In response to your survey and request for comments, we are compelled as a family to pass this onto you. Our family recently purchased a house with the help of one of your Realtors, Kathy Ricketts. I personally am a nurse by profession and have the opportunity to encounter many individuals every day, but, rarely have I had the blessing to encounter a person like this individual. Kathy possesses the ability, while maintaining her professionalism, to make one feel at ease. All this, while getting families through, what I believe, is a very stressful time. As I often told her quot;I could minister, and treat train wrecks every night if I have to, but this reality stuff is much more demanding. I could never do itquot;. We relied on her professional advice and opinions, and trusted her throughout the entire process. Ms. Ricketts, not only took the time to know our family, but realized all of our varied needs, and connected us with the perfect home for all. We are very happy in our new home and I thank God for the chance meeting of such a gifted and wonderful individual as her. Truthfully, until this day, my family still asks about Mrs. Ricketts and she made a wonderful impression on us all with her professionalism, encouragement and personal touch. Our new home and neighborhood is perfect for us. We will always be thankful for her assistance. Dealing with this individual was a most rewarding experience. I am sure it comes as no surprise to all of you who know her that yet another family recognizes the personal care and dedication she brings to your profession. We felt the need to reitterate once again how very special she is as a Realtor, as a person and as a friend."
    ~ With gratitude and most sincerely, The Rusinski Family...

"A wonderful experience!"
    ~ Deanna Schneider

"Thanks, Kathy for all your work, and hours you put into selling our house. We are handing your cards out to anyone that is thinking about selling theirs also."
    ~ Wish you the best, always. Pete and Jill Jackowski.....

"This was the 2nd time we used Kathy Ricketts and RealtyUSA. I hope we never have to, but if wedecide to sell this home, Kathy will be the first to know."
    ~ David Drews

"I talked with Kathy Ricketts on the phone while asking about a home I saw in the paper. She was very knowledgeable. She was great. She tried her hardest to help us find a home."
    ~ Chuck and Lori Kritz

"I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how pleased we were with Kathy Ricketts' service when we sold our former home and purchased our current home. She was professional in every sense of the word and at every stage of the buying and selling process. Kathy was always accessible and put in many hours on our sale, including several open houses. The follow-up work was never neglected. Kathy always checked with the bank and let us know the status of the proposed mortgage for which the purchaser of our home had applied. In our case, however, Kathy's expertise was even more useful during the purchase of our new home. We were looking for a larger home in the Orchard Park school district at a time when our finances were tight and when interest rates were high. I felt that the only way we could afford the monthly payment on a larger home would be to assume a lower interest mortgage. Kathy suggested a house which pleased us very much, but which had been on the market for quite awhile and which was not advertised as an assumable mortgage. Kathy insisted that the bank holding the mortgage had written assumable loans in that year. Sure enough, when prodded by Kathy, the loan officer finally admitted that the mortgage was, indeed, assumable. This was the difference between a family of 6 staying in a very crowded starter home and being able to spread out into a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath colonial. We are so appreciative. Thank you, Kathy!"
    ~ Sincerely, Barbara Badach

"Dear Kathy, My husband and I want to thnk you for all your hard work. We LOVE our new home."
    ~ Thank you, Peter and Michelle Nagy

"I would like to take this opportunity to advise how pleased I am with Kathy Ricketts. Her knowledge and professional manner is certainly an asset to your agency. Mrs. Ricketts has worked very hard and has gone the extra mile on my behalf."
    ~ Eleanor Kuzma

"Dear Kathy, Now that we are almost settled in our new place, we can look back at the hectic time that has passed with more clarity. Kathy, thank you for being there for us when we got upset and helping us hold things together. When we listed our home, we really didn't think that it would sell as quickly as it did. We were expecting it to take a year or two. So, when it sold in two weeks, it caught us off guard. Then, when we had the two bids and the decision about what to do, you were there with good advice. You were very efficient in finding available homes for us to look at and had a good sense for what we wanted. (Maybe more than we had.) Because we didn't have time to waste, things had to move along rather quickly and you kept us going. Fate had a hand in this deal because this place wasn't even on the market yet. We liked the place when we saw it the first time, but it was your suggestion to switch the current dining room to meet our living room needs that finalized the sale. It was very disconcerting for us when all the delays started happening, but you calmly explained everything and made it all work. For that I thank you. You know your business. You're good at it and you have a way about you that helps to keep your clients calm during a stressful time."
    ~ Deborah and Thomas Dessert

"Kathy, I don't even know where to begin to say quot;thank youquot; for all you have done for me. I LOVE my new house. It's so exciting!! and it's all thanks to you! You have made me the happiest homeowner!! You're the best!"
    ~ Marion Clark, Pauline and Jon

"We sold in 3 days!!!  We have always been very pleased with Kathy and recommend her to everyone we know."

                                                                Brian and Lindsay Masterson

 "She took a personal interest in me and my familly"

                                                                     Dr. Christine Walawander

We just wanted to thank you for all the help you gave us in finding our house.  From setting up times to look at houses and the guidance in the process.  Without you it would not have been possible.

Ryan and Erin Mohr

"We both wanted to thank you for all of your effort in getting this house sold.  As always, your professionalism and extra hard work paid off.  We were both thrilled to have turned this around so quickly and it was in no small part, thanks to you.

Kris and Bridget Lutz

Dear Kathy,
"We can't thank you enough for helping us find and get our new home. We absolutely love the house! We have already painted the master bedroom and living room. Now we have a lot more space. It is awesome.

The wedding was perfect!! We had a lot of fun and went by way too fast! We are looking forward to our honeymoon! Thanks again for everything!"

Love, Rich & Meg
