Greg's Story

Surrounded by an Excellent Team!

In addition to Kathy’s skillset and professionalism, she is also surrounded by an excellent team that supported us during our recent purchases and sales. They are dependable, resourceful, and very easy to work with, and certainly added a lot of value. We highly recommend Team Kathy Borys and appreciate all of their hard work to help make our recent home purchase a success!

Worked Tirelessly for Us

In particular, we had a very challenging purchase of our most recent home due to a distressed developer and numerous issues with the new house they had just completed. Kathy worked tirelessly on our behalf for 8 months to navigate an arduous process that included negotiations with the distressed seller, bank, contractors, and an unmotivated selling agent. She was professionally persistent on a daily and weekly basis, communicated effectively with us and with the other side, and ultimately drove the successful conclusion of our home purchase with terms that exceeded our expectations.

No Fear or Pressure!

Kathy was caring and sensitive to our situation. (My husband and I were going through a separation at the time.) Therefore, she would text both of us and schedule conference calls from time to time which we found very helpful. When offers came in, Kathy was professional. She knew exactly how to handle the situation and we had our house sold in 48 hours. Through her solid advice and expertise, we were comfortable and confident in making our own decision, without fear or pressure. Kathy is a rock star realtor, you can’t go wrong.
– Allison W.

Provided crucial feedback on how to write a winning offer.

Karina was a fantastic realtor! She was very easy to reach, kept me informed about new listings and gave honest advice about all the houses we looked at. As many already know, this year was a real struggle to find a home. Not only was Karina able to keep my spirits high, but she provided crucial feedback on how to write a winning offer. After a few minor setbacks, I ended up getting the home of my dreams! I highly recommend working with Coldwell Banker Realty and be sure to ask for Karina by name!
– Courtney F.

An excellent communitcator!

It was wonderful to work with Karina Bigith in selling my home of 20 years. She is an excellent communicator, highly professional was extremely successful in selling my home. The marketing materials she created were outstanding. I plan on using Karina as an agent in the future when buying or selling a home.
– Susan F.

Lead us all the way through the selling process!

Karina has been amazing! She helped us make our home look amazing, lead us through the process and was so much help sorting through offers!
– Lauren O.

Phenomenal Service!

Karina gave us phenomenal service. Her communication, punctuality, and professionalism are second only to her upbeat cheery nature. She guided us through every step of the process and made sure that we had her support at every step. It’s easy to see that Karina takes pride in her work, and gives 110% effort for each and every client that she works with. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their Realtor, as I’m sure she’ll help you find the “Just Right” home for you.
– – Rob H.

Kathy Borys has sold two homes for us and helped us buy four!

We have referred her to happy friends and she remains our “go to” for all things real estate related. Professional with a sense of humor, Kathy gets it right on all points. Her tremendous experience and focus made each transaction a piece of cake.
– Beth H.

Kristi is an amazing person and was such a pleasure to work with through the whole process.

We purchased and sold our house with Kristi and she was excellent in communicating the steps, always very quick responses (no matter what time of day) and great helping us keep the stress and emotions in check. We couldn’t recommend her more!
– Jeff Norem

Truly Cares for Her Clients!

Kristi Ganske was AMAZING to work with!!! Our experience as first-time sellers couldn’t have gone any better! Kristi took the time to get to know exactly what my fiance and I wanted and didn’t want. Her knowledge about all things real estate from the beginning to the very end, helped guide us through the process. Kristi is extremely responsive and on top of answering our many questions, all while comforting and let us move at our own pace. She made, what could have been a stressful experience (especially during COVID) into a fun and pleasurable experience that resulted in us getting more than we asked for. Due to her vast knowledge about real estate, she pointed out things that I never would have thought of. Kristi Ganske is professional, personable, and truly cares for her clients. Kristi will be my only realtor in the future and I highly recommend her for any and all of your real estate needs.
– – Brian C.

Service-Oriented Agent!

As first-time homebuyers, we are grateful for the experience we had working with Kristi. Kristi is a service-oriented agent who was professional, patient, and extremely responsive as we looked through various Minneapolis…neighborhoods. We were assured that her goal was to find us the ‘right’ home, rather than an adequate home in the quickest amount of time. Kristi was there to guide us each step of the way, from viewings to offers to inspections to closing. I highly recommend her services to anyone interested in buying or selling in the Twin Cities!
– – Shana K.

We couldn’t recommend her more!

Kathy is an amazing realtor!! She helped us sell our home and find our new home. She was with us every step of the way and was amazing throughout the entire process. We had some issues pop up with our new build, and Kathy helped keep us sane. Even after the fact, she has been checking in on us and making sure we continue to be satisfied. We couldn’t recommend her more! If you are in need of a realtor, give Kathy a call.
– Erica & Mike

Kathy has helped us to sell 3 homes and buy 4!

Over the past 24 years, Kathy has helped us to sell 3 homes and to buy 4. She is very good at knowing what improvements are worthwhile to make and will help sell the home. Every home selling and buying experience with Kathy has been very smooth, thanks to her knowledge, hard work, and integrity.
– Keith & Rebecca

We'll definitely use Kathy to help us purchase our next home.

Our family loved working with Kathy. My wife and I just had a baby and were preparing to move across the country. She really helped us navigate selling our house through all those other stresses, and was a great advocate for us, making sure potential buyers understood our situation with a young baby at home. If we ever move back to the area, we’ll definitely use Kathy to help us purchase our next home.
– Brian S.

She made me feel like I was the only person she was working with!

Kathy was, in a word, amazing. I was buying my first home and doing a cross-country move during a pandemic, and the housing market was really moving quickly so the whole process was a bit overwhelming. Kathy was able to find me a number of houses to view in the limited time I had to come and look at houses. It was a whirlwind trip – in on Sunday evening, viewing houses Monday and Tuesday, and having an offer accepted on Wednesday. She made herself available for me and she also made me feel like I was the only person she was working with. I fell in love with a house that turned out to have a lot of expensive things pop up during the inspection and she negotiated a very advantageous settlement for me. When my lender caused the closing to be delayed, she negotiated for the lender to credit me at closing for the rent that the seller charged me because I ended up moving in a few days early. She’s also kept track of the progress with the contractors, as the repairs are currently ongoing. Looking back and writing about this, the whole process sounds a bit crazy but Kathy kept it from feeling crazy at the time. With all of the other things that I had to organize to move several states over, knowing that she was handling all of the details for the house made things feel so much more manageable. And I love my house!
– Jennifer P.

Had our house sold in 48 hours!

Upon recommendation, we elected Kathy to represent us in the sale of our house. We had friends who wished they had chosen her because their house sat for weeks, and in this market! Kathy is an expert in her field. She is knowledgeable, trusting, and a straight-shooter. Being first-time house sellers, we had several questions and concerns. Kathy always responded quickly by answering or instructing us in detail. She was so available and accommodating, we felt like we were her only client.
– Allison W.

Working with Kathy was an excellent experience!

Working with Kathy was an excellent experience – this time and twice before this buying experience! Knowing you have someone in your corner with years and years of knowledge of the real estate market is so helpful. We are both very happy with the outcome and highly recommend her!
– Mary & Brent

One of the best recommendations I have ever had!

We were referred to Kathy by a friend – one of the best recommendations I have ever had! Kathy was wonderful from start to finish! My wife and I were purchasing our first home, and we needed a realtor that was able to explain every piece of the process, and guide us in the right direction. Her input throughout the process was invaluable! She was extremely flexible on short notice, very responsive to our questions and concerns, and incredibly helpful when we needed advice. She was also very patient with us during the process which we appreciated. Never once was she pushy, she truly wanted what was best for us. Best of all, she is a great person, easy to chat with, and someone you can trust. We will be using her again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
– Tom & Natalie

She handled everything for us in a professional manner.

We used Kathy Borys to sell our home after we moved out of state. She handled everything for us in a professional manner. She really went above and beyond to get our house ready for sale and SOLD! She was a joy to work with and we would use her again.
– Jeff B.

Everything she recommends will help you sell your home!

When we decided to sell our home, Kathy was our first (and ultimately only) call. She is extremely knowledgeable of the process and is very aware of how to highlight your home’s best features. Everything she recommends will ultimately help you sell your home (our home sold within 2 days of going on the market). She regularly communicates about progress to prep your home for the market and about any questions you have during the whole process. We never felt like we were bothering her or that our questions were inane. Her professionalism, approachability, and initiative illustrate why she is an amazing real estate agent. I would recommend her to anyone any day of the week and three times on Sunday.
– Melissa & Matt

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would have!

Kathy Borys, simply put, is incredibly wonderful. She was an absolutely fantastic realtor to work with. I am still uncertain of when she sleeps. It seems every time we needed a question answered, or had an idea, we would email her during all kinds of hours, and within minutes we would have a response. When you go on house showings with Kathy, she is very detailed, and knows exactly what to look for when purchasing a home. Things that my wife and I would never had thought of to look for. Even after we closed, when she was unhappy with something, she was still making sure that we were taken care of, and happy with our purchase. It was an all around miracle that my wife and I managed to cross paths with Kathy. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would have. You will not be disappointed with Kathy and her team. She is an all around wonderful person.
– Nick & MK

Highly Recommended!

We have worked with Kathy on several home purchases and sales and highly recommend her to anyone interested in selling or buying a home. Kathy is a very client-centric, professional, and results-oriented agent. Through each transaction we have worked with her on, she has led each one seamlessly and went above and beyond each time to exceed our expectations.
– Nic & Patricia

Warm and Accommodating

Kathy Borys is extremely professional in all respects, but at the same time, warm and accommodating. She’s an excellent listener, understood our somewhat unusual situation, worked hard to find properties to suit our requirements, and always responded in a timely manner to our questions. With her help, we closed on a home we expect to love for years to come. And when it is time to sell, we’ll call Kathy.
– Kathleen & Gerry

Listed on a Friday and had multiple offers Saturday!

When I started my first flip, I knew I needed an experienced professional to help guide me through the many pitfalls and nightmares that can arise. Kathy’s knowledge, professionalism and demeanor is what made me instantly attracted to her and Coldwell Banker. She answered my myriad questions, offered advice on trends, staging, where to get the most bang for my buck and most of all was there for support. In the end, we listed on a Friday and had multiple offers Saturday. I will definitely be using Kathy again on my next project and will recommend her to everyone I know needs an outstanding realtor.
– Greg G.

Kathy is the best realtor in MN

I could write this review in one sentence: Kathy is the best realtor in MN. But it would be no fun at all to stop there, so I’ll elaborate. Kathy is the fourth realtor with whom we’ve worked and we went through three of those just trying to buy our first home. This past spring, friends across the street sold their house in a weekend for well over asking and that got us thinking about looking for house #2. I wasn’t interested in any more trial and error with Realtors so I asked our friends who they used and they sang Kathy’s praises. Our house hunt/sell was a long process – almost six months – and Kathy basically held our hands from beginning to end. Before we were even settled on the idea of selling Kathy came over to take a look at our house and make recommendations for what to change if we wanted to sell, as well as her estimate on the listing price. On at least three occasions from that point on, I said the words, “we will do whatever you tell us to do.” She’s that good. Any question we had, about literally anything having to do with a home, she knew the answer to/could send us more information on/had personal experience in. Everything. And her answer usually started with, “I just went through this very same thing…”. By the end, I even had friends texting me questions to ask her. That’s how much we talked about how awesome she is. Kathy knows it all because she has done it all. I joked that I will forever be texting her all of my questions about house stuff. Also, that was not a joke and I will 100% be texting her all of my questions about house stuff forever. I wish I could do a better job conveying how ridiculously amazing Kathy is. But I can’t, so just call her so she can make everything about buying/selling a home better.
– Nadia & Nick

One Of The Good Ones

We’ve worked with Kathy Borys a number of times over the last decade, both as a buyer and a seller. Some of those transactions have been straightforward; others have been nightmarishly complex. In good times, Kathy is a terrific, empathetic listener and a great sounding board: She’ll tell you what she thinks and make sure you understand the nuances of any given situation. In tough times, she’s a calm, tenacious negotiator who can disagree without being disagreeable and a creative thinker who’s available at the drop of a hat to help navigate through difficulties. She cares about her clients and she cares about her community. When you work with Kathy, you get an advocate, an expert and a source of information and insight that endures long after the closing date. She’s one of the good ones.
– Dominic & Mary

The World Needs More People Like Kathy!

Kathy is amazing, what more can I say? Through the yearlong process of looking to buy and also selling when the time was right, we encountered so many different things. We were so fortunate to have worked with someone that ALWAYS made us feel like we were her first priority, always communicated clearly & quickly, always advocated for us, provided truly invaluable resources & references and was just an absolute pleasure to deal with. The world needs more people like Kathy.
– Keith & Emily

Worked With Her Again Because it Was Such A Good Experience!

This is our second time working with Kathy. We chose to work with her again because we had such a good experience the first time and for the 5 years in between she did an amazing job at staying in touch through various events. This time, we sold our house and bought our forever home with Kathy’s help. Buying a house in this crazy market was stressful to say the least, but Kathy was always there for us. She was very patient, knew us well enough to know when something wasn’t right for us, and gave us perspective when needed. She was amazing with our children, was available when we needed her, and paid close attention to intricate details of our likes/dislikes. Buying and selling a home is very complicated but she made the whole process feel seamless. We are now in our dream home and will recommend Kathy to anyone buying and/or selling a house.
– Sara & Ryan

A Professional, And Also Personable

When I decided to sell my home after 25 years in Minneapolis, I started interviewing realtors. After I talked with Kathy, I knew she was the right person to work with on the sale. She provided detailed explanations of the process, what to expect, gave me pep talks, and got the deal done. She is professional, but also personable. I now call her a friend.
– Michelle H.

Made Our Home Buying and Selling a Wonderful Experience!

Amazing! We worked with Kathy and her team for close to a year. The market changed over that time. We sold 2 homes and bought 1. Kathy and her team helped us answer many questions about the buying and selling process. They had great resources helping us make our home buying and selling a wonderful experience. Thank you!
– Kim & Morgan

Simply THE BEST!

If you are at all wondering if hiring an experienced realtor is worth it or not, I can promise you that Kathy and her team will knock it out of the park and make the process unbelievably easy! Her and her team truly go the extra mile (even shoveling during a snow storm and chipping away at ice patches just before the open house)! Kathy is simply THE BEST!!
– Dan & Andrea

Delivered on Every Aspect Promised!

Our experience working with Kathy was amazing! At our first meeting she presented a detailed plan for marketing our home using professional photography, video and social media. She delivered on every aspect of what she promised and guided us through the process. We had multiple offers in less than 2 days. We highly recommend Kathy and her team if you are looking to sell your home!
– Mark & Christine

Helping You Find Exactly What You're Looking For

It sounds ridiculous to be a little sad that you’ve found your dream home in St Anthony. Sad because we won’t be seeing Kathy Borys, our realtor for the last two years, on as frequent a basis. Kathy spent the last two years patiently helping us find exactly what we were looking for; providing expert insights and authentically getting to know our needs along the way. She often reminded us of my goals in order to ensure we did not compromise on the most critical housing factors even when the market was so competitive. Speaking of a competitive market, Kathy had developed strategic and creative plans that adapted to the current state for every step of the process. Kathy also sold our home in NE Minneapolis. She brought ease and simplicity to a situation that could have been way more stressful and complicated (selling a home while also caring for small children and a dog!). She had solutions (and connections) for everything and was available for all of our questions. Did I mention she sold it for more than we ever expected in the first weekend? Kathy’s reputation speaks for itself. She is truly admired and respected in the Real Estate/Construction/Financing/etc. industry and NE/St Anthony communities. We’ve already recommended Kathy to multiple friends and will continue to do so.
– Kari & Nate

It was wonderful to work with Karina Bigit in selling my home of 20 years.

She is an excellent communicator, highly professional, and was extremely successful in selling my home. The marketing materials she created were outstanding. I plan on using Karina as an agent in the future when buying or selling a home.
– Susan F.

I hired Karina to sell my home in 2020.

She made the process much less stressful, she comes with multiple options for staging and pictures to best suit your needs and price points when it comes to listing. And does a great job fielding all of the questions you have. Nice, professional and easy to work with and would definitely recommend her for listing your home she does a really great job!
– Ashley P.

She helped me find my first home!

Karina was very thorough and understanding of what I was looking for. Not just in the house but also price range. She was considerate of my likes and dislikes and tried to locate things that would interest me. She was helpful not only throughout the looking, but also the sale and even afterwards. She checks in to make sure all is well. She has gone above and beyond what I expected in a realtor.
– Jesus S.

Knows the Market & Gets Results!

Kathy is an absolute joy to work with and she gets results. We knew we wanted to work with Kathy after our first meeting. She presents options, knows the market and has a process that works. We strongly recommend you give her a call if you’re buying or selling. You won’t be disappointed.
– Ginny & Jon
