Relocating From California

“Kathy Basham was my real estate agent in Aug/Sept of 2015. I had relocated from California and knew little about Salem. Kathy was an excellent tour guide and teacher, as well as an outstanding agent. She showed me 15+ homes. As much as I enjoyed and appreciated her time and expertise, it wasn’t until I found THE home, that I truly appreciated her as a professional real estate agent.

I felt so fortunate to have someone looking out for me the way she did. Asking the right questions and bringing me into contact with trusted and well qualified people along the way. Kathy is a good business person and I felt like I was protected from the pitfalls of the process, and myself. She went above and beyond in her pursuit of finding my home and making it happen in a timely and fair way.”

I give her my highest recommendation and I’m sure anyone else would feel the same way with her services and representation. Kathy Basham is a great professional and a wonderful person I’m happy to have met. She definitely can be trusted to handle one of the most important choices and processes of your life. I felt very fortunate to have chosen her as my real estate agent. Thank you Kathy for everything you did on my behalf.


First Time Home Buyers

“We worked with Kathy when buying our first home.  We had actually worked with a different realtor for several months before working with Kathy and didn’t have a great experience. Our first realtor wanted to push us to make quick decisions that would mean an easy transaction.  Kathy wasn’t like that at all. She was extremely helpful, hard-working, and honest. She never pushed us to make unwise decisions and would, in fact, keep us from making a bad decision even if it meant more work for her.

She was always available to look at houses, work up an offer, or discuss concerns. She patiently walked us through all of the paperwork and finances which was extremely helpful since we were first time home buyers. Kathy was very knowledgeable about what to look for in a new home. She was also really fun and enjoyable to work with!  Needless to say, we would highly recommend her.”

First Time Experience

“We had the privilege of working with Kathy as our realtor when looking to purchase our first home. Kathy’s knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and she was certainly able to do more then the average agent. We knew what we wanted and did not want to spend weeks or months looking. Kathy was diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with us. She helped us find the perfect home to suit our needs. We look forward to working with her again in the future.”
