Katies’s recent clients:
I can’t say enough about Katie Hawkes. I never met a realtor with such enthusiasm and determination to get the transaction closed. I’ve seen her write letters to the listing agent about her buyers desire to purchase a home, therefore resulting in her offer being accepted in lieu of another. She puts her heart and soul in to making sure everyone is happy. She is a FANTASTIC REALTOR®.
“Katie is an incredibly professional and nice person.
Katie did an awesome job selling my house in 30 days! I enlisted Katie who came highly recommended after my house sat on the market for 7 months with no prospects and rare showings with another agency. I was feeling helpless and hopeless about the prospect of selling at fair market value. However, Katie’s reassuring and caring nature eased my mind and with her expertise in the real estate market she outlined a plan and truly surpassed my expectations! She is extremely professional and knowledgeable and has a unique flare for staging homes which I believe helped in the quick sale of my house. With her negotiating skills I was able to get top dollar for my home. I was very happy and satisfied with the outcome and will definitely call on her for any future home purchases or sales. Don’t hesitate to call her and let her help you with your home purchase or sale! – A very satisfied client
We’ve now completed four transactions (2 buys, 2 sells) with Katie. She’s far and away the best agent we’ve ever worked with. She works tirelessly, has great market knowledge and excels at negotiation. Her sales volumes reflect her skill. Most importantly, she’s a lot of fun and is constantly focused on getting the deal done.
Katie has helped us buy and sell four homes over the years and has put together deals that I thought would never get done. My wife and I highly recommend her and her company.
I am the former CFO of the online real estate company MarketLeader (formerly known as HouseValues). I took that company public in 2004. Recently it sold to Trulia. My wife met Katie they hit it off. I met Katie & initially found her competent – but I had no idea how amazing she was until she helped me purchase the most amazing short sale that Rancho Santa Fe has ever seen. Katie was instrumental in getting a very very difficult deal done. Thank you Katie. If you have any questions about this please do ask Katie for my email address.
Katie did a great job from helping us set a price to marketing our property, to finding a qualified buyer, to negotiating and closing the deal… we were in escrow within days of listing! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in our area.
We listed our home with Katie after three years of trying to sell our house with with two other realtors. She was wonderful to deal with and perhaps the best realtor we have ever had (we have sold eight houses). She was professional, knowledgable and most of all demonstrated excellent negotiating skiils when emotions were running high. In addition, she is just a plain neat gal. My wife and I recommend her highly.
Highly recommended. Has sold & bought several homes (at least 6 that I can recall) for me in Rancho Santa Fe. She knows the market and makes real estate deals happen in Rancho Santa Fe. She is willing to do all the work necessary to get the deal done.
I will never use anyone but Katie! A true professional, Katie treats you like you are her only client. Responsive and helpful and always there to answer questions or concerns. She is very well connected, too, so her bank of local resources is rich indeed. We felt very cared for.

Katie has helped us buy two homes and sell a third. Katie knows so much about San Diego real estate. Her understanding of market timing helped us make the decision to move. Katie has an eye for style. She staged our home and made it look wonderful. As a result, our home sold in record time. Katie’s staff is friendly and on top of all the details. They worked day and night to answer questions and guide us through the closing process. We are so grateful they were able to make an impossible idea become a reality in such a short time! Ask Katie for contact info if you would like to confirm this recommendation over the phone.
Katie is the consummate professional! She stewarded me through a process that had me apprehensive and skeptical from the start. I entered with a scowl and am exiting with a huge smile. All thanks to Katie. There is no one who knows the market better than Katie ( I have worked with many realtors). She imparts exactly what you need to know and when- without bombarding you with a minutia of information that you do not need to know. If you want to get the granular details though- you better believe she has them at the ready. Weekends/nights- whatever it takes ,she is always there with as professional an attitude as if it was Monday at 10am. She is now a friend whom I would recommend to anyone. BEST-REALATOR –EVER !!!
Katie has it all: knowledge, experience, drive, personality, patience and enthusiasm. She will get you into the house of your dreams! She is number one in my book. Barbi Krome
