About Kathie

You may have noticed that many business professionals take a transactional approach to sales--identifying clients, closing the deal and then moving on to the next one. I choose not to work that way because I believe you deserve more from the people you decide to work with. That’s why I work by referral. Since my primary source of new business is referrals from individuals who know and trust me, I don’t have to spend time prospecting and promoting myself. Instead, I can dedicate myself fully to the activities that benefit you most as well as always deliver truly exceptional service.
