Katie has been around Real Estate her entire life being part of the Gilmartin family. She started her career at The Gilmartin Group by working during the summers since she was 8 years old putting labels on mailers and passing out fliers. It was common to visit Open Houses over the weekends and the family is always talking about the market.

After graduating from Santa Clara University in 2009 with a degree in Communications, she pursued her passion for cooking and attended the City College of San Francisco Culinary program. This amazing program taught her that cooking was what she liked to do but what she was really good at was customer service and working with people. She improved her customer service skills through working in a few restaurants and a high end hotel both as a server and manager before she decided that she wanted to finally join the family business and try out Real Estate.

The practice received in the customer service industry as well as learning about various styles of Communication from her degree has really helped Katie be able to connect with clients and provide them with the service that they need. One of Katie's strong suits is the ability to communicate with different people while managing diverse personalities. It is her goal to make all parties involved in her transactions feel at ease through communicating effectively, taking action quickly and being available. Katie has a personality that draws people in and makes them feel comfortable.

Since 2013 Katie has been a full time Agent who has helped both buyers and sellers throughout the Peninsula attain their goals. When working with buyers she understands how tough it can be and therefore guides her clients throughout the entire process. She has completed most of her transactions in San Mateo County and also some transactions in the East Bay. She has learned how to keep buyers focused on their goal because it can take multiple offers before buyers find their dream home in this market. Katie also knows how important it is to help educate first time buyers through the process from beginning to end: advising on getting a pre-approval, finding the right home, coaching on price, going through the purchase contract, explaining the next steps once an offer gets accepted, making sure closing costs are taken into account and finally signing the closing documents.

When working with sellers Katie takes a personal approach to find out the reason for selling in order to create the right timeline. She guides sellers in what they should do to get the property ready for the market and helps with the process by getting the right crew for each project whether it is as simple as cleaning and staging or as intricate as remodeling as well as everything in between. Katie has also had the pleasure of helping sellers with 1031 exchanges and working with tenant occupied properties.

Katie was married in September 2013 and now has her own family. Life has now become more focused on balance and managing time effectively so that everything can get done.

In the end, Katie is willing to go above and beyond to make the experience for all her clients as stress free as possible as it is a very emotional process. She continues to set higher goals for herself every year. Katie also strives to accomplish and exceed your expectations of a Real Estate professional.
