When you are buying real estate from a distance, you want to work with someone knows the area well. I was raised in Arizona and have lived in Phoenix and many surrounding cities. I am very active in the community and have a robust list of resources to offer during and after a transaction. I live by "The Golden Rule" and treat people the way I want to be treated.
My ever-growing global network of top-notch agents is a great resource for clients who are relocating or buying a second home outside Arizona. If they aren't already on my list, I know what to look for. It's easy to find a real estate agent. It's not easy to find an amazing agent. I can make that introduction for you and give you peace of mind.
“Tami & I decided to snow bird in Arizona. Kathleen was recommended to us by a mutual friend she has helped us buy 2 homes & sell one. She knows her industry inside & out. Kathleen is not only our realtor but has become a very good friend. If you're looking for a realtor she will be a very valuable asset to your buying or selling needs.”

“I worked with Kathleen Banister and honestly cannot say enough amazing things about my experience. She was referred to me by a friend and I would refer her to everyone who is looking for a home in the Phoenix area! I was relocating to AZ from another state and so I had to buy virtually and she was a pro! She is incredibly thorough, professional, and knowledgeable. In this market you need someone who is on it and communicative and who will fight for you and she is the person. She made what could have been a very stressful experience as smooth as possible and I'm so thankful to have worked with her.”
Welcome to your one-stop shop to learn the ins and outs of the residential real estate market when moving to the Greater Phoenix Area, aka, "The Valley of the Sun." The blogs below highlight the AZ buying process (which is vastly different in every state), and my process for prepping and selling a home for top dollar with the least amount of hassle to you. You'll also find a blog of my listings so you can see some seller experiences and property transformations. Each transaction is unique and it is a privilege and pleasure to get to know my clients and help them with what can be a daunting task. I get great satisfaction from being an advocate and a guide helping people through the unexpected and the triumphs of buying and/or selling a home.
“Finding Kathleen was a gamechanger! She was so patient & supportive during the entire home searching process. Kathleen's experience & extensive knowledge of the market is impressive. She was so tactful in negotiating & presenting a competitive proposal that got us the house of our dreams. The experience with Kathleen makes us love our home so much more. We now have a home we love & a genuine friend who really cares about our family.”
