"Katina understands how to work with clients who are relocating to Atlanta from abroad. I was living out of the country when I purchased my home. She went out of her way to be available to communicate with me despite the time difference. She made the purchasing process easy and stress free."
"Katina provided us exceptional assistance with our relocation from Copenhagen, Denmark back to Atlanta. Making available the tools and knowledge of the city to us, Katina made the search for our new home so easy that it seemed we already had one foot in our new home. Customer orientation and expertise comes immediately to mind. I would not hesitate to use her services for any future relocation need."
"Have already highly recommended Katina to others. Her professionalism and methodical approach during the negotiations diffused a lot of the stress and her availability and patience even during her vacation was priceless."
Julie & Marcus
"We were first time home buyers when we met Katina and she looked after us like we were family. She made accommodations no matter the day or time and she was incredibly knowledgeable. She helped us negotiate the best possible deal where we not only got a great price, but we were also able to work with the previous homeowners to ensure things such as home warranties were in place to offset the cost of unforeseen expenses during the first year in our new house. This is just a small example of her creative ability to provide comfort and ease though out the entire process. Now, we will send everyone we know her way. We LOVED Katina. We miss her already!
Lindsay and Tyler
"I have worked with Katina as both buyer and seller in several transactions over a number of years. She has always provided exceptional service in every aspect of the transaction. As long as Katina Asbell is an Atlanta area realtor, she will be my only Atlanta realtor. And I have referred her to friends and family often"
"Katina Asbell listed my home and sold it the next day. And got me the asking price I wanted. I am very pleased and highly recommend her because she made the whole process seem easy. She is very helpful and I appreciate all of her efforts because she showed home all day long into the evening hours to get the result I wanted. My neighbor recommended her to me and now I'm glad!"
"My wife and I recently purchased a home in the Atlanta area. We had the good fortune to meet and work with Katina. She took the time to understand our needs and wants regarding the house we were looking for. It took us about a couple months to find a nice home and during that time Katina was very helpful during the week to send emails of potential properties to consider. We scheduled time on weekends and evenings to look at houses that interested us. Katina was always friendly and very helpful pointing out the pro's and con's of the homes we looked at. Katina guided us through the negotiation process and helped us get the price and the terms we were comfortable with on the house we chose. During the period of time when we put in our earnest money and the inspections were happening we had lots questions for her. She was always very responsive, had a great attitude and demeanor with us when we called , text , and emailed her with our questions and concerns. Her recommendations turned out to be accurate and correct. Buying a house can be a stressful experience but working with Katina made it a pleasant experience. We will work with Katina again when we need to sell or buy another home."
Kim & Dave "We have worked with a lot of agents over the years and were fortunately introduced to Katina by a mutual friend. We had a great time working with her on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Never once was she too busy to help us and in fact, had contractor recommendations readily available when we need to make some repairs. We can't say enough good things about our experience!"
Robert & Cecilia M. "Thank you for making the sale of my home effortless."
