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 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.

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.

Kathy is the very best realtor I've ever known. She knows EVERYTHING and though the whole process is grueling at times, she makes it easy. From listing to close, she is right there beside you. She is just totally wonderful! I recommend her in the highest possible way.

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 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 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.

    - Prior to purchasing my home in Bear Valley Springs, I dealt with many Tehachapi realtors who's only interest was to get the highest bidding price with no further communication, if I did not meet their expectations. On the other hand, Kathy understood my needs and consistently communicated with me on those properties that would suit my needs. She is a tough, no nonsense, great, caring communicator that enabled me to find my dream home. Thank you Kathy

    - 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.
