ENDORSEMENTS & TESTIMONIALS
Back in January, my family came to the conclusion that it was time to move our 92 year old mother to an assisted living community in Tucson as we had no family members living in Las Vegas. While I live in Atlanta, I knew that I would have find an exceptional Realtor who I could work with from 2,500 miles away to get our mother’s home listed and sold quickly by just working over the phone. I searched the Las Vegas Realtors listings for someone who has sold a large number of homes in the Spring Valley area and came across Kathy Shippen with Realty ONE Group. Thanks goodness I did. I called Kathy who began reviewing my mother’s property and the recent sales around the area immediately. As a former Real Estate Appraiser, I thought I could come quite close to the value to list the house on my own but asked Kathy to give me her thoughts. She provided me with pages of comparable home sales and then suggested an asking price that was $50,000 over my estimate value. While skeptical, she was right on with her number. We listed on a Monday evening after she had her professional photographer shoot the house. Within 72 hours, we had 8 offers of which all were over our asking price! Kathy reviewed all the offers can called me with her recommendation. We closed within 4 weeks at a price $35,000 over our asking price! Amazing work! I have worked with many Realtors over the year’s but Kathy stands head and shoulders above them all. Constant, clear, decisive communication is what she delivered to me daily from 2,500 miles away. I strongly would recommend Kathy Shippen to anyone wanting to sell or buy a house in the Las Vegas area! My mother and entire family thank Kathy for delivering an exceptional experience while we focused on this challenging transition for our mother. Well done Kathy!

Kathy is a sweet lady to work with as a realtor in finding our current home. She was always avaliable to look at homes and made us feel really comfortable taking our time to make sure we found the one we wanted. She never swayed us one way or the other so we had our own timeline to find what was important to us. Thank you Kathy!
Kathy is an amazing realtor. She helped me purchase a condo, and later to sell the same condo. What I loved about her was her patience. I never felt rushed or that I was an inconvenience to her day. She was flexible and quick to meet any day of the week. Even if that meant 5 days in a row. Working with her was very smooth when it came to paperwork or contacting her. When it came to selling my condo she was very proactive with ads and her knowledge of the market. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy, or sell, or in my case - both!
Kathy was great to work with. I recently purchased my first home with her help. Being a first time home buyer the process was unfamiliar and sometimes overwhelming. Kathy made sure I fully understood every step of the process and in my opinion went above and beyond to help me aquire this home. Having her on my side made a huge difference in the home buying process. I will definitely be calling Kathy in the future should I purchase any more properties!
Kathy Shippen has handled 8 residential purchases for my husband & myself. She is very professional,honest, detail oriented, plus knowledgeable in real estate rules and procedures. She is skilled at handling forms and responses in a prompt timely manner. I would definitely recommend Kathy for your next purchase as she always goes the "extra mile" for her clients!
Kathy is a impressive real estate professional. She has extensive knowledge of the community and the real estate business. Kathy found me the exact home I was looking for and negotiated a fair deal making sure I was the one who that won the bid; as therir were 4 others who also wanted to buy my home. I am very glad I choose to use Kathy Shippen to be my realtor and I know you would be too if you choose her to represent you with any of your real estate needs.
When my husband and I were looking to purchase a house in Las Vegas, several colleagues recommended Kathy Shippen. It was worth it. She did thorough searches for properties that met our criteria but also allowed us access to do the same. She worked hard to arrange a chance to see several houses - often in one day. The biggest bonus of having Kathy as our realtor came after we had made an offer on a property. From changing lenders to some other issues that came up (and almost sunk the deal), Kathy was diligent and persistent. She was a great advocate for us and it helped us get the house of our dreams. Kathy is a great person to have on your team and I'd have no reservations about recommending her.
Kathy Shippen was amazing to work with, very helpful and professional, always prompt and offered great advice. As a first home buyer, Kathy made our experience pleasurable and stress free. I highly recommend her to anyone buying
I have no regret working with Kathy Shippen. I would work with her any time in the futur and I recommend her to anyone. She was proactive, knowledgeable and very kind. I gave her some very strict and challenging deadline to sell my home and she make it happen before time! She exceeded all of my expectation. She supported the negotiation with great insight based on an extended background in the real estate industry.
We love Kathy. after a long drive from New York to Nevada she drove us around and showed us the houses and locations and told us about the area. she is very knowledgeable and she really listens and looks for all your needs in the houses she shows. Our list included being handicapped accessible, and had to be close to my sister.... she found it...and we bought it and closed in 9 days. Yes she is very. Good. From the beginning till the end she was there every step of the way, we love our new home, thanks to Kathy.
Dear Kathy, my family and I would like to take this opportunity to publicly THANK YOU! As you know, you have not only been a Realtor for us when we bought a home but with recently selling one also. Because of you we were able to sell our home for a lot more than what we were expecting. We've known you a long time but it was your expertise and knowledge of the market that made it possible for us to leave it in your hands without worry, and it didn't take long. Fast and easy is how everyone would like transactions to go, and that is exactly how it went in our case thanks to you! We can't thank you enough for your attention to detail, your ease with working together, and your beautiful personality that made it a delight. We are so happy that we chose you to handle the sale of our home in what potentially could have been complicated and stressful. The Beck's highly recommend Kathy Shippen as your Realtor if you want someone knowledgable, honest, trustworthy, easy to work with and beautiful inside and out! Thank you Kathy, we Love You!
