Kathleen Stansfield, REALTOR, GRI, MCNE, ABR, PSA, SRES, RSPS, SFR

Hi, I'm Kathleen Stansfield. A full-time Realtor and Resident in Venice Florida serving the surrounding counties of Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte.  I've been licensed since 2013 and hold the GRI designation (Graduate of the Realtor Institute), the MCNE designation (Master Certified Negotiating Expert), the ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative), the PSA (Pricing Strategy Advisor), the SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), the RSPS (Resort and Second Home Specialist), and the SFR (Short Sale Foreclosure Representative).

As an agent, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about Buying and Selling Real Estate in this area. Real Estate differs dramatically from state to state, so you need someone you can trust for local and up-to-date information.  I promise to provide you with the Communication and Responsiveness that you want, the Process Knowledge that you need, and the Process Transparency you deserve. 

For buyers, I offer my knowledge in getting them the best property for their money while educating them on the local value of the property and surrounding areas.  I know what to look for as we walk through homes during showings, and I will point out everything I see, the good, the bad and the ugly. I also have a great group of vendors I have vetted over the past 8 years that you can trust, from Lenders and Home Inspectors to Pest Companies and Septic Companies, I only work with the best.
For sellers, I leverage all this "buyers' agent experience" to help my seller's address any potential issues before the listing even goes Active.  I manage all the staging, marketing, and showings to maximize the value of your home for the cleanest and quickest possible closing. Everything is handled for you, from my cleaning team and window washing crew, to my painters and pressure washers (if needed), your home will be sparkling clean and ready to shine!! You will never wonder where I am or what is going on with your property, I am always here.

Here is what my clients have to say about me:

I’m so Thankful that I hired her to be my realtor. You will not find a better realtor in the area.

7/22/2020 - Kathleen was recommended by my parents who had worked with her in purchasing their home in 2019. After hearing them constantly rave about their experience working with Kathleen we decided that when the time came and we were ready to relocate from Orlando that we would be giving her a call. Several months later we did just that and could not be happier with our decision. Our experience with Kathleen has been exceptional. We were really impressed with her knowledge and expertise and really appreciated the insight she brought to the table. Throughout the house hunting process Kathleen was incredibly responsive, accommodating and patient. Her positive, upbeat energy was very refreshing - especially during this crazy, uncertain time in the world. We highly recommend Kathleen and will definitely be working with her again when it is time to buy the next house!

4/1/2020 - Justin Y. bought a home in North Port  --  Our experience with Kathleen was exceptional. She's very knowledgeable and most importantly was very patient. We kept changing what type of property we wanted and she covered all the bases. She was neither overbearing nor pushy; keeping in mind what we wanted. We purchased our home and the inspection and closing were exceptionally smooth. We highly recommend Kathleen.

2/4/2020 - Carla A. bought a condo in Punta Gorda  -  "Kathleen was helpful before, during and after the sale answering questions and getting me settled. Very pleasant to work with she was a great help with any questions I had.

8/6/19 - Glenn and Sue P. built a new home in a local new subdivision. I really don’t like to tell a story before the ending, but our realtor, Kathleen Stansfield, continues to provide an outstanding level of service even AFTER we contracted to have a home built in Venice, Florida. Kathleen was recommended by friends who wanted to buy a home prior to their actual move from NY. Our friends said, “you are going to love her!” They were right! When I called Kathleen from NY, I let her know that we were planning on retiring and moving from to Florida in the future, that we were not ready to buy for another couple of years, that we’d be visiting some friends on the Gulf side, and would appreciate meeting with her. I let her know that we were hoping to get a feel for the area and hoped she could show us a variety of property types and tell us about the Venice area, even though we were “just looking.” From that first phone call, she proved herself to be honest, caring, and extremely attentive, staying She within the parameters we had given her. Kathleen gave me a quick overview of what the Florida market was and immediately started to send us listings, none of which exceeded our price point. Once we arrived in Florida and met with her, her service expertise went into overdrive. She was NEVER pushy, but allowed us to realize that our original expectations required some adjustments. Kathleen gave us all the information necessary to make informed decisions as to what type of home would best suit us, and where-and-when we would actually purchase. We fell in love with the Venice area, made adjustments to our budget and time frame, and decided to purchase immediately, instead of waiting. At every turn, Kathleen made it very clear that WE were her priority. Through the whole house-hunting experience, Kathleen was a combination of friend, comedian, advisor, tour-guide, and hostess. I like to think that we’re her most favorite clients, but she let me know that she treats everyone the same (but I think she likes us best!) Since contracting to have our home built at Islandwalk at the West Villages, Kathleen is always available and has continued to provide a level of service that exceeds what anyone could want in a realtor. She goes out of her way to know her product inside and out. Even though our home is not due to be completed until the fall, she has been on-site for home pre-drywall inspections, and has made outstanding recommendations for other contractors. At no point did we feel like she was a salesperson. i may need to post some future chapters! If you are looking to buy a property in Kathleen’s geographic area of service, I would strongly encourage you to consider calling her. You will not be disappointed.
