Kathy handled both the sale of our last home and the purchase of our current home, simultaneously. From advise on offers to helping us find the professional services we needed to get our home market ready, she was there for us at all times. When our offer was accepted it was a complicated situation with multiple contingencies, but she was on top of everything at all times. I have no doubt that Kathy was the hinge pin that pulled everything together and got us to concurrent closings with minimal fuss. You can't go wrong with Kathy Carey!

Memorable qualities: Knowledgeable - beyond familiar with the area and its real estate history. Priced our home aggressively even as we wanted to sell quickly... had a showing appointment set before we left the house and sold an out after we left the driveway and before listing on MLS! Connected - you need help with Race internet? You need cleaners? You need help with windows? Interested in upgrading to make the house your own? She can get you in touch with the right people. Communicator - keeps in regular touch and responds promptly when we sent questions. Not afraid to say “I don’t know” and then go get the answers.

We enjoyed our experience selling our home with Kathy. 

She was always professional and answered our questions in a timely matter. She has great marketing skills and our house sold in a week. I highly recommend her and would use her again.

Kathy Carey has managed my rental house for the last five years or so, and also sold my previous residence in BVS. She is very pleasant to work with, efficient, and handles difficult situations expertly. Highly recommended.

After having rented out our lovely BVS home we decided it was time to hire a professional before we might run into complications after all these years being so far away. From knowing about her excellent reputation in BVS we decided she was the person we wanted as our property manager. She easily found a very qualified renter for us for two years. When any issues arose w/ the house such sprinkler system leak that everyone else missed she was right on it. We could contact her anytime we had any questions or a problem. She is thorough, very knowledgeable and highly qualified. Anyone who choices her will be blessed to have done so as you will be well taken care of always.

We first used Kathy as our realtor when looking for our retirement equestrian property. 

She was honest about several we looked at previously (undesirable for us for various

reasons), and we moved on until we did find the one that met our needs, and we are

happy with this place. Afterwards, she sold our other house in BVS. It sold in just a few

days and over list!! She knows the local area and market really well, and is unafraid of

being honest about a place's unsuitability if that's the case. And she communicates

during the process so you know what's going on.

    Kathy has been my realtor for 25+ years. During that time she has dealt with a difficult renter, along with getting me top dollar for my two properties. Her knowledge of the Tehachapi area is exceptional. Kathy is efficient and capable of handling every situation in a very timely manner. I highly recommend her as a realtor.

    Kathy Carey managed a rental property of mine in Bear Valley Springs for many years and she handled all aspects of the process from screening renters, collecting rent and managing repairs as needed which allowed me to be completely hands off. Kathy also recently sold a house for me in Bear Valley and was forthright in her advice and extremely diligent in marketing and advertising the property. She went above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor and I am extremely satisfied. Kathy Carey is an experienced professional with extensive local real estate knowledge who provides honest advice and she has my complete trust and confidence to look after my interests as if they are her own and if I do purchase in the area again, I will only use Kathy Carey.

    Sixteen years ago, Kathy was our realtor when we purchased our house in Bear Valley. She was, and is, a professional and good friend now. When it came time to sell, there wasn’t anyone we trusted more to sell our house. She understood our needs and calmed our fears when needed. Thank you Kathy for being there 100 percent for us. We will miss Bear Valley and all the fiends we’ve made.

    - Kathy was very pleasant to work with and represented my interests as the seller. She was always very helpful to me understanding the market, determining the right selling price, required forms to sell the property, offers, and counteroffers. She worked hard to bring buyers and realtors to view the property and then getting both parties across the finish line. 

  • Our family has known Kathy Carey for over 30 years as a realtor, a property manager and a personal friend at Bear Valley Springs. Kathy always treated our homes as if they were her own, choosing suitable tenants, making insightful suggestions for upgrades and finding the best contractors for improvements. When it was time to sell, Kathy chose the best time to list, advised us on improvements and helped us avoid unnecessary major expenses. Because we were never full-time residents at BVS, many extra responsibilities fell to Kathy, but she always found just the right tenant or buyer quickly and successfully. We were so fortunate to have her as our Broker and friend.

    Kathy Carey was easy to work with and provided the necessary insight and expertise to navigate the sale of my house. She responded to all questions promptly which was doubly important as I was out-of-state. In addition, she made important suggestions and arranged for workmen to handle some required repairs. I highly recommend her.

    I had almost given up on selling my house in Bear Valley Springs as I had two other realtors try to sell it with no success. When I called Kathy, she was optimistic that she could sell it. She has a great "can do" attitude that remained throughout the entire process. She is a true problem solver and a very hard worker. In the beginning she told me that it would not be necessary to visit the house during the sale. We live about 3 hours from the house, so that was a relief. She handled EVERYTHING and only contacted me when necessary. It was a complex sale as there were tenants in the house that had to be considered. Kathy is a true professional. She continuously kept me updated on the progress of the sale and she was meticulous about processing the paperwork on time. She was also very resourceful in getting in getting inspections and repairs done. Communication is of utmost importance when selling a house. Kathy did an extraordinary job in communicating with the buyers realtor, the escrow company, contractors, inspectors and me. She kept us up to date during the process and made sure we all were well informed. I can truly recommend Kathy's real estate services to my family and friends. It is an honor to write this review about Kathy Carey.
