Kathy Crowder has been selling Real Estate in Longmont Colorado since 1988. She has been associated with the most successful real estate organization in Colorado, RE/MAX since 1989. Having lived in Boulder County since 1978, she knows the area. Kathy keeps current on the market trends and conditions. She is involved with the community and can share her wealth of information with you to make an informed decision regarding your real estate transaction.
We lost my father unexpected in the spring of 2013. Which left my mother alone in the house her and my father shared together for over forty years.
I was concerned about this situation over the long term, as I lived nearly an hour drive away. With no other family nearby that was going to leave her a little isolated.
I wanted her move closer to me, so I could be more available to her. And I wanted it sooner rather than later. But since my mother has lived on the same block since she was two years-old, she was not eager to move anytime soon.
Realistically, I thought it would probably be five, maybe even ten years before she might choose to make that sort of move. However, I thought if I started having her look at houses near me, occasionally, it would encourage her to move forward sooner.
This is how we met Kathy, in the spring of this year, 2014. We were "window shopping" and called Kathy to view a house she was listing in my own neighborhood.
The house was very nice, but not my mom's style. However, we both found Kathy to be very personable and enjoyed viewing her listing. We felt at ease with her, and there was a real "click" between her and my mother, in particular.
I will tell you that I don't remember wether we contacted Kathy again or, she contacted us. It was such a natural progression of communication that it doesn't stand out to me. And I can tell you this is the beauty of Kathy's manner and professionalism.
Kathy really knows how to talk, listen, and respond to her customers. In fact, she never made us feel as if we were her customers. She made us feel more like good friends, and she didn't want us in just any old house. Rather she was determined to help us find the house perfectly suited to our wants and needs. She is very patient and thoughtful that way.
We felt truly cared for and listened to. And, amazingly, because of her keen abilities to respond so seamlessly to the conversations we had while house hunting, my mother found her perfect home.
It took less than 5 months, beginning to end --not years! I was so astounded. She really knew how to connect with my mother in a way that helped her make one of the biggest lifestyle changes she's made in a very long time
I will always be grateful to Kathy for helping my mother find the house of her dreams, so close to my own house. My mother now lives 10 minutes away, and can enjoy her grandkids daily. Rather than an hour away, with only the occasional visits she got previously.
We are all very happy with this new change in our life, and I give Kathy so much credit for that change. We feel very lucky to have connected with her. She is so personable, knowledgable, and professional! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to make a move, she knows her business and is a pleasure to work with!
When we decided to make the move to Longmont one of our biggest concerns was of course finding the right home and dealing with all the issues associated with making a large purchase 300 hundred miles from home. Fortunately we met and worked with Kathy Crowder. Kathy made the entire experience fun and was invaluable to finding our new home. Her attention to detail was very important and her communications regarding every step of the way ensured a great outcome. We have bought and sold real estate for about 40 years and have dealt with a lot of realtors. We voted Kathy as the best realtor we have ever had!

We worked with Kathy Crowder to buy and sell a home in the Longmont area in late 2013 and found her to be an excellent realtor. She has a vast and impressive knowledge about the various builders and neighborhoods, was able to point out things we had never considered and helped us navigate through some of the pitfalls of real estate. We highly recommend Kathy because she is professional, accommodating, ethical and is truly an expert in her field.

We highly recommend Kathy Crowder for helping to sell or buy a home. Our experience has been nothing but positive. She helped us buy our home in Longmont in 2002 when we moved to Colorado from out of state. In 2013, she helped us sell our home in Longmont and buy a home in Loveland. Her professionalism, attention to detail and market knowledge is exceptional. She stayed on top of all contractual deadlines that we had to meet as well as making sure the buyer or seller stayed on top of theirs. If issues do arise, she handles them courteously and most important-promptly. Kathy is a woman of integrity and we are extremely fortunate to consider her a friend."

"We met Kathy in the spring of 2010 at an open house a year before we were ready to start looking for a home. We were immediately impressed with her knowledge of local businesses, local politics, and real estate. She knew about the plans for redevelopment in downtown Longmont, and talked to us about home value in Old Town. She was so friendly and knowledgeable that we remembered her two years later when we started to entertain the idea of buying a home of our own.
We worked with Kathy for almost a year. Like most first-time home buyers our knowledge was limited to what we had seen on the internet. She got us into houses immediately after they went on the market because of her strong Longmont network. She also knew the real value of a home.
Almost every weekend she took us to homes, many times with our two year old in tow. He would say, "Hi Kaffy" when we would see her: she became a close friend. She guided us through the home buying process and introduced us to an amazing home broker who gave us a one-of-a-kind package and taught us what we needed to know to buy a home. She would ask us poignant questions in order to help us determine if the house was the right fit for our family, which kept us from settling or compromising on our dream home.
After almost a year of looking and feeling like nothing was a fit to our list of specifications in the Old Town area and within a specific price range, we found a home that was just out of our price range that we loved. Kathy negotiated a great deal for us, and following appraisal we realized we had instant equity as it came in higher than we bought it. We could not be happier with this amazing home that feels right. "Yay Kaffy!" Now our son has an amazing yard to play in, and he loves the new home. It just so happens that we moved in next to the greatest neighbors anyone could hope for, and our son's new best friend, who is also two years old. We are already at work adding our personal touches on this home and putting down roots in Longmont. It is hard to imagine a better outcome, and we owe so much to Kathy.
Thank you for helping us find the house of our dreams, Kathy! "

"Kathy Crowder is a Realtor above all others! She goes above and beyond every day to help her clients. I don't know what I would have done without her diligence and wise advice. When the housing market took off and there was competition for every house I wanted, she sent out letters to all homeowners in the neighborhoods where I was looking asking if there were any homes about to go on the market. She talked to her Realtor friends and we finally found my house. I was able to look at the house the day before it went on the market. Kathy went home and worked into the night to make sure my offer was in before the morning. The owners accepted my offer and I got my house.
She is very knowledgeable, both in real estate in general, and especially in this area of Colorado. She provided me valuable information about the area I was looking in and the comparable prices, appraisal values, etc. She created a whole booklet for me so I would have a good idea of what my home would sell for and what I could expect to pay for a new home. She is familiar with all the communities on the front range and worked tirelessly to find me my house. She also sold my townhouse in record time for a good price and for cash.
On top of all her hard work, she was fun and pleasant to work with. She made the house hunt much easier and I consider her a friend now.
I recommend her without reservation. She is a hard worker and will do everything possible for her clients to help them sell their home or find a new one. "
