Kate Johnson, a New York City real estate sales professional, is committed to providing buyers and sellers with the services, information, and resources needed to make their goals and dreams a reality. As an agent with Sotheby’s International Realty, she can confidently say “Clients receive absolutely the best service and resources and the most timely and relevant information to overcome any roadblock on the way to the most successful outcome.” Kate works equally well with investors, having begun her personal real estate investment portfolio in 1996 when she purchased her first co-op apartment, a penthouse overlooking Park Avenue.
Kate welcomes clients from around the world. She is well-traveled, having career experience as an international model with Wilhelmina. She also has a keen sense of aesthetic which has proven useful in designing and staging homes. Her finely tuned aesthetic sense adds another important facet to her services, allowing her to assist clients with design concepts and stage many of the properties she markets to provide a welcoming, highly functional, and visually pleasing environment for potential buyers. Like art, each apartment Kate lists is appraised with a studied market value, which must be displayed in just the right light in order to achieve its potential. Kate’s love of architectural detail and New York history adds to her business insight and ensures that a buyer is seeing the whole picture when purchasing and that a seller is apprised of the full market potential before listing their property.
Discretion, dedication, and sharp negotiating skills are the hallmark of Kate’s ability to attract and maintain relationships with her buyers and sellers, arming every client with the tools needed to make deals an inevitable success.
Kate lives on the Upper East Side and her son attends boarding school at Millbrook. She is an active member of the Real Estate Board of New York and the Hassenfeld Children’s Center. To balance work with a healthy lifestyle that includes time to enjoy family and friends, Kate finds relaxation and the beauty of nature at her second home in Woodstock, New York.
