Kate Nelson is terrific!! Over a year ago I was looking for a LGBTQ friendly realtor to help me sell a house. I was given Kate's name. She was amazing to work with in the selling process. Just this past fall when I was ready to purchase a home, I did not hesitate to contact Kate. I would not think of using any other realtor. I was purchasing a new build. The process was long and at times frustrating, but Kate made it all so much easier. She got me to closing and waited outside to celebrate with me after. There is no one better!

Kate was an excellent realtor for me from start to finish! I found her through a search on NAGLREP because I wanted a realtor who was LGBTQ-friendly and would be see me and my family as a family looking for a home. (Kate did so much more; she treated my partner and I (and our dog) like family every step of the way.) She went above and beyond to ensure that I found the perfect home for our needs. I so appreciated Kate's vast knowledge about the homes in Nashville (from the styles to pricing and more). She genuinely loves the work she does and wants her clients to find their dream homes. Thoughtful, responsive, easy to communicate with, open, and caring throughout the homebuying process, I would choose Kate as my realtor again and again and again! I highly recommend her and her team!

When my husband and I found out we were moving to Nashville from Charlotte, we were overwhelmed by our to-do list but Kate made our home search one of the easiest and definitely most enjoyable parts. We were prepared to make multiple trips to Nashville to find our perfect home, but we were able to do it in just one trip with Kate’s help and diligent preparation. We kept a shared google doc for our favorite homes, and she made notes on the areas which helped us narrow down the list before our visit. She FaceTimed is for our final walk through so we didn’t have to take another trip, which was a huge help for us. Kate made the entire process seamless and I look forward to working with her in the future, but for now we are enjoying our perfect new home!

Kate has helped us purchase 2 homes in the Nashville area. She has a great system to help you identify which houses you want to see and remember them later, when you're ready to make offers. She's thorough and prompt, two great traits when you're in the process of buying a home to make sure a home doesn't get away from you! We will be using her services again when we're ready to sell or purchase.

Julia H - Nashville, TN: 2019-06-03

Kate is an amazing realtor. She is a great listener, diligent researcher and persistent in her search to find a home that’s a great fit. She has integrity in all she does and that comes through in her interactions. She’s the only realtor we’ll use!

Kesley P - Bumpusmills, TN: 2019-05-31

Kate is amazing at helping you find your perfect nest! She is so helpful through the process. Kate has such a sweet nature and that really shines when she answers my questions. Home buying can be stressful but with Kate it is an amazing and joyful experience. During my search we viewed homes all over from the city to farms to tiny houses way out in the country. I give Kate 5 stars and highly recommend her!

Killian W - Nashville, TN: 2019-05-31

There aren’t enough stars for Kate and her team. We had a very unusual property we were searching for and she not only found it for us, we closed yesterday! She was patient, understanding, supportive and knowledgeable in all the ways we needed her to be. The process was not easy and she handled it with grace and ease. Bravo for Kate and Stephen with a job well done.

Meg W - Nashville, TN: 2019-05-31

I recently purchased a condo in Nashville and had a great experience working with Kate. She is knowledgeable, attentive, and a great negotiator. Kate and her team were helpful every step of the way and being new to Nashville, this made an otherwise intimidating process smooth and easy. In addition to being an excellent realtor, Kate is a kind and thoughtful person who genuinely wants to help you find your perfect home. I love my new place and highly recommend Kate to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Linzie T - Nashville, TN: 2019-05-30

I can't say enough amazing things about Kate as a realtor and a person! She has helped me buy and sell homes over the last 10 years, and I will forever be a lifelong client. She cares deeply about her clients and does her work with integrity and impeccable character, with a gift for making an oftentimes stressful situation smooth and easy. It's evident that she is genuinely invested in happy outcomes for everyone she serves.

Stephanie R - Nashville , Tennessee : 2019-05-30

Kate has been a rock star for my entire family for over a decade. I have used her for buying, selling, rental advice, and a general reference for all things property related. She helped my parents, elderly grandfather, youthful cousin, investor X husband, hair dresser and executor of a will best friend , all with grace and expert knowledge, when the market has been hot and not ! Everyone always thanks me for the referral because Kate is the bomb. Com!!!

Ruth C - Nashville, TN: 2019-05-30

Kate helped my wife and I navigate our first home buying experience and many transactions since. She helped us understand the numbers in decision making about selling or renting out our home. I have always felt that she is very smart and responsive . Because she has been doing this for so long she knows the neighborhoods; this has helped friends who were relocating and needed help knowing where and what to buy.

Paige H - Nashville, TN: 2019-05-29

Kate has helped us buy and sell homes. Once she takes you as a client she is on it. She is fun, proactive, and an excellent negotiator. Kate made the experience of buying/selling a home not only fun, but also smooth. We are loyal and happy clients.

Kim D - Nashville, TN: 2019-05-29

Kate is a fabulous realtor and I can't say enough positive things about all the work she has done for us over the years. My wife and I bought our first house together with Kate back in 2004 and have since bought and sold several houses with her help as we've surfed the Nashville real estate market trying to find the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood, etc. Kate knows Nashville and she cares about her clients!
