    Louise and Katie are great! Louise sold us our first home ten years ago and we had a wonderful experience; so naturally, when it was time to start looking for a bigger home we called Louise. She and Katie helped us search for over a year for the perfect home. Due to the crazy real estate market, the home buying process was EXTREMELY stressful and emotional but having Louise and Katie helped us get through it. They were supportive, patient and professional throughout the process. Thanks to Louise and Katie we are now living in the perfect home in a great neighborhood and we couldn't be happier.

    We were referred to Katie by a friend and we couldn't be happier. Katie represented us as buyers.  Prior to working with her, we had become very frustrated with the market, consistently being outbid by all-cash offers. Katie taught us strategies to be more competitive buyers, within our financial constraints.  More than once we were given counter-offers, when previously our offers were not even looked at seriously (sometimes there were 20 offers on places we were interested in!) We are now happily settled in a home of our own, thanks to Katie.  She even prevented us from overbidding.  We wanted to offer high on our current place, as we didn't want to lose to other buyers.  She prevented us from emotional overspending, and I'm so glad we took her advice. Katie was professional from the beginning.  She took time to understand our goals, and steered us away from overextending ourselves financially.  She fought hard to get us into a home, which seemed impossible before meeting her.  Her expertise was critical in choosing the right home, setting the offer price, and completing a seamless escrow. ...

    My husband I thought about buying a home in the summertime, but we searched around online and we didn't see anything in our budget at the time so we didn't press further. When the time came where we felt we had enough saved (in November) we thought we'd look around at open houses "just for fun".   My mom recommended Louise and Katie to us and even though we were tempted to go with Redfin's realtors which seem to promise that they'll save you money, we decided we better go with a trustworthy personal source. We're so glad we did because Louise and Katie literally saved us thousands of dollars!! MUCH more that the Redfin realtors probably could've! My husband and I only had one house we saw (on Redfin) that we asked Louise to show us. When we got to the house, we found it didn't meet our expectations at all. But that was OK since Louise had a whole list of houses (that we never saw on Zillow, Trulia, Redfin or Realtor.com!) that she wanted to show us. We fell in love with one particular house that we had never even considered before that day. To our great surprise, it was within our budget and Louise said she would put an offer down for us. WITHIN THREE DAYS WE GOT THE HOUSE!!! Louise told the seller what a wonderful couple we are and told the seller all about my husband and me (even though she didn't know us that well!) and even though there were other offers, the seller went with us...LOUISE EVEN GOT HIM TO LOWER THE PRICE!!!! Both Louise and Katie made the whole process of getting a home FUN (every time we met Louise had a "gift" for us...she really is an encouraging, bubbly, GIVING, nurturing person...and Katie's just like her!), easy, stress-free and really, unbelievably good. My husband's credit was shot from his younger days which is most of the reason why we didn't think we could get a home so soon, but Louise and Katie and their team (thank you too Bill Jarvis!) made a miracle happen!! We're so excited to be living in our new, wonderful home!! THANK YOU SO MUCH LOUISE AND KATIE!!! You make a great team!! ... Read More

    I had no idea what I was getting into. My Fiance' and I were searching for a home all year long. Putting in bids like crazy and getting beat out in bidding wars. Came close a few times to getting into something that was out of our price range due to bidding wars. I was tired already and about to give up.  THEN..I decided to try something different. I saw a sign with Louis and Kate as realtors. I called them and got hooked up with Tracee. I came in and meet with all three off them and got a good break down of all the steps that happen after submitting a bid. When I reached out to this team, I had already had a house in mind and we submitted our bid. Tracee kept me from emotionally over reacting and over spending we got into the bidding war. OUR FAMILY GOT THE BID!! Tracee and Kate had already knew from our first meeting what I was willing to spend without jeopardizing my family’s needs. They fought for my family and reminded me if it wasn't meant to be, then it just wasn't meant to be and something else would come up. They kept me from over spending our budget and even worked on a buyers credit. I was Absolutely impressed with all their hard work and patience they had through all the bidding. After we closed I just kept getting gifts from the team. I was really happy and so were Tracee, Katie, and Louise. My kids were finally going to get their own room and my Honey and I are about to gain some piece of mind. WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER.. ... Read More

    Louise and Katie with Prudential Realty were wonderful to work with. They were always so nice and friendly, and they always had gifts for us.  We worked with Louise and her team to sell our old home and buy our new one. The process was as smooth as it could be and they were professional and made the process smooth.  We even bid on the home we bought before our old home was sold. They took a chance and did what might have been extra work but it paid off! I would highly recommend them. ... Read More

    We worked closely with the Lovewell team, particularly Katie Lovewell who helped us get a beautiful home in Kensington, just north of Berkeley, CA. Katie was a wonderful partner in helping us navigate the VERY tough Bay Area real estate market. She was a trusted adviser and really helped us feel  comfortable making the biggest financial decision of our life. We knew she had our best interest in mind and her invaluable insight was critical in our search and in finalizing the bid/contract. Without hesitation, we recommend Katie and the Lovewell team. ...

    As first time home buyers, my husband and I were very nervous. Our first realtor did not help to put us at ease and after feeling like this was just not meant to be, I decided to give it one last shot and contacted the highly recommended Lovewell Team! From our first meeting with Katie Lovewell, my husband and I immediately felt at ease. We trusted Katie to guide us through the crazy world of real estate and to say that she went above and beyond for us is an understatement. She made herself available to us, even if it meant explaining something for the fourth or fifth time. She always reminded us that we didn't need to feel pressured into anything and we really felt she had our best interests in mind. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend working with the Lovewell Team! They are everything you could want and more as Real Estate Professionals! ... Read More

    Working with Katie and Louise was wonderful!! They make you feel like part of the family and are with you every step of the way. We have used them to buy, sell, and buy again a home. Each time we were just as happy. They came recommended from a friend and we recommend them to our friends too. They  were right with all their information and time lines. They were very easy to work with and even helped us find free boxes for packing. ... Read More

    Katie was recommended by my lender, and she was absolutely amazing! We were buying our first home on a pretty strict deadline, and she made it happen, somehow. She was super responsive when we needed to ask questions, and really really good at helping us narrow down our options to a few we really liked. We saw about a million homes with her, and made offers on 5 or 6 of them, and she really helped us seal the deal with the seller of the one that we bought. She was a joy to work with and we can't thank her enough for helping us get our house! Highly highly recommend! ... Read More

    Katie recently helped us buy a house in March. She is awesome and very fun to interact with. She took time to talk to and listen to me and my husband, and we were able to complete our purchase relatively painlessly. Katie gave us a cake after our purchase and we appreciated that thoughtful gesture. ... Read More
