Although I grew up on the East Coast, I have been fortunate enough to fulfill my dream to live in Colorado. After graduating from college in Arizona, I moved to Colorado and have never left! My real estate career began in Breckenridge, CO and in 2006 I furthered my career by moving to the Denver Metro Area. I feel that I have strong knowledge and experience in all types of markets. When not working with clients, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son and 2 Labrador Retrievers in beautiful Golden, CO. When we are not enjoying live music at our favorite venue, Red Rocks Amphitheater, or hiking and biking the Front Range, we head straight up I70 for even more fun in the mountains. My family and I know and truly enjoy the lifestyle of playing outdoors and all that beautiful Colorado has to offer.
My Approach to Real Estate:
Home ownership enables a lifestyle and often produces memories that will stay with you forever. With having successfully sold real estate over 12 years, I understand the importance of truly listening to my client's needs and clearly communicating with them from the beginning of the process all the way to the end. My strength lies in my experience, broad market knowledge and negotiating skills. I am committed to service and helping people achieve their dreams when it comes to one of the largest investments of their lives.
When assisting buyers with reaching their goal, it is most important to carefully evaluate each client's dreams and desires and then carefully match them with the right property. And in the same, when marketing a home for a seller a high level of communication, diverse market knowledge and connection within the community is required. Being an overall advocate for people in what can be a sometimes complex process is of highest importance whether representing someone who is buying or selling a home. I strongly believe that honesty and integrity are foremost, but the value of service should extend far beyond the transaction itself. This is exactly why I love selling real estate because my clients inevitably become my friends!
"Kate was very easy to talk to, very responsive and very interested in our specific needs and situation. She was always available whenever we had a question or concern and made the process as painless as possible every step of the way
We were not able to commit to an offer on a new home until our existing townhome was under contract. This contingency situation made the sale/purchase process stressful for us, but Kate knew what to do. Kate continued to show us home after home until we had a really good feel for what we were looking for when it did come time to pull the trigger. When we finally had a prospective contract on the line, Kate negotiated on our behalf over her Thanksgiving holiday. It was pretty amazing! When we found the perfect home, Kate was able to help us navigate the close and inspection processes all during snow storms and the Christmas holiday season.Katie surpassed every expectation we had and was quick to offer her assistance in ANY way. She even fed the fish that came with our new home for us. - 10 out of 10"

"Kate Whipple was our agent for both the sale of our old house in Denver and the purchase of our new house in Golden, and we wanted to write and let you know how pleased we were with every aspect of her as our agent. We would highly recommend Porchlight and Kate, in particular, to any of our friends. During the house sale, Kate did a fantastic job to get our property ready. She found vendors for us, coordinated them and corralled them to get the job done right and on time. For the purchase of our new home, we only had a couple short weekends to find a place we loved. Even after we explored our initial list of homes on a given day, Kate was always able to show us more properties on extremely short notice beyond what we’d agreed upon. Again, overall great job and our thanks to Porchlight for such positive experiences!"

"We have had experiences in the past with realtors who really pushed for a sale without looking out for us and what was in our best interest. They were in a hurry just to get the deal done and collect a paycheck. This was NOT Kate’s strategy. Kate provided sound guidance and advice throughout the home-buying process (which was painfully lengthy in a hot market with no inventory. Bless her patience.) She always kept our best interests in mind, and never once tried to talk us into something we didn’t want. In fact, on more than one occasion, she worked to talk us OUT of something we thought we wanted. (She was right, thank goodness!) It was a rare pleasure to work with someone like Kate who is honest and who genuinely cares about her clients. - 10 out of 10"

"Kate Whipple represented us in the sale of our home in Applewood in the Spring of of 2016. Kate is very experienced and has a very positive attitude. She is quite knowledgable about the Applewood market and gave us sound advice regarding the asking price and other matters pertaining to the sale of our home. We liked working with her and highly recommend her as a real estate agent."
