After getting frustrated with no call backs from realtors referred to us, I took matters into my own hands and did some research of my own. I found Kathryn by chance because she was featured on the Mills 50 Newsletter because of her recognition by the Orlando Realtor Association. For being so young, her credentials were impressive and I decided I would schedule an appointment for my husband and I to meet with her to see if she was someone who we would click with . Kathryn impressed us with her attention to detail. She had us both fill out a very lengthy questionnaire which would help her in curating a list of homes that fit our criteria. It took us a night to think about it but we immediately let her know we wanted her to represent us. Our search did not go without some issues. Kathryn is very matter of fact, analyzes the situation put in front of her and is a great negotiator on behalf of her clients. She will present the facts to you and leave it to you to let her know how to proceed. Overall, she puts her clients best interests ahead first and foremost. We appreciated this since the home buying process was so overwhelming for both of us. Also, Kathryn was a great resource for home inspectors who were honest and, in one case, saved us money! We would highly recommend Kathryn and her team for your home buying and selling needs. Kathryn works hard and , yes, even on weekends. If you want someone who has your best interests at heart and will actively communicate with you and for you– she is your gal!

We worked with Kathryn Stelljes and the ThinkLiveBe team to sell our Lake Como home in summer 2017. Kathryn and her team were extremely professional and detail-oriented. They stayed in constant communication with us and provided weekly updates with great metrics and data about the progress made in selling our home. They also worked closely with our property manager to help manage communication with tenants who we had in the home during part of the sale process. They aggressively marketed our home which helped find the right buyer quickly and then assisted in a quick closing process which worked very smoothly for all parties. We were thrilled to work with Kathryn and would highly recommend her and her team!

I was impressed with the marketing skills & resources available to sell my property. Team work was brilliant! Thank you!
Sold our house in 4 days! Best team ever!
Kathryn offered a great deal of insight and expertise when we needed it the most. She helped us sell our home for more than what we listed it and she was extremely patient and cooperative when it came to us finding our next home. She does her research and understands the market and helped us fly through the buying/selling process with ease. I'd recommend in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking.
Kathryn's assistance allowed us to get the best price, in the quickest time frame, with the easiest terms. She was spot-on in recommendations on how to best stage and present our much-loved home. I can highly recommend Kathryn.
Kathryn is the hardest working, most professional individual I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail and problem solving skills make her invaluable in the selling process.
We have had the opportunity to work with Kathryn regarding two properties. She is highly experienced in her field, prompt to all appointments, and brings her A game in a confident, smooth, and experienced manner. Kathryn has a cutting marketing edge and we always felt as though we were her main focus. She sold both of our properties in just two days. My older home in the City of Orlando and our newer Town Home in Maitland. My 1947 home sold for 100% of the asking price and the 2nd property for 98% of the listed price and she always sets the price to sell and sell it does! Kathryn is very professional while exhibiting confidence and exuding warmth, patience, and expertise. Her marketing skills are without parallel and we highly recommend her to be your realtor.

Kathryn was great. She was very patient with our first-time seller questions and helped make the process as smooth as possible. We respected her advice and honest opinions, and relied on her wealth of knowledge to make decisions. We would definitely use Kathryn's services again to buy or sell a home, and would highly recommend her.
Seller in Winter Park
Kathryn has been my realtor for three of my properties and I could not be anymore satisfied. She is attentive to EVERY detail and gives her honest opinion when it comes time to sell your home, which is refreshing. If you are selling your home with Kathryn, I would advise you to PLEASE listen to her. She definitely does her research. Her knowledge and experience is second to none. If you are buying a home with Kathryn, she does an amazing job of finding properties in the area you are interested in, and finding the type of home you are looking for. She makes to process surprisingly easy. There is no one else I would use as my realtor. I have recommended her to several friends who purchased a home and they all have felt the same way. She is the best!

Kathryn was the consummate professional and added value through every step of the sale process. She had good insight regarding pricing and expectations for time on market to sell. She made excellent suggestions regarding updates to shorten the time on market to sell and maximize the sales price, given the budget constraints that we were comfortable with. Her marketing plan was well thought out and executed timely with excellent results. She made several suggestions for resources to assist with preparing the house for sale and they were very good. We would highly recommend Kathryn for anyone that is looking to sell their home in her market area. You will not be disappointed!
Seller in Lake Underhill
We searched for a new home and sold our home with Kathryn. For selling a home she is amazing at staging, suggestions for eye appeal, and pics/video to market your home. She encouraged us through the process and we sold our home for more than expected and had an offer in less than 2 weeks, even with the challenge of selling a 3 bedroom home with only one full bath. For buying a home, she was so patient and knowledgeable with us. I know we are particular buyers because my husband and I each had ideas of what we desired in a home. We finally found the perfect one and Kathryn helped us negotiate to purchase it at a fair market value in our price range. I can't stress how much she knows about real estate, home pricing, and the Orlando area. I highly recommend Kathryn and her team for your real estate needs!
Happy buyer/seller in Downtown Orlando
Kathryn is an amazing realtor. My husband and I have worked with her on five sales/buys, and every time she does not disappoint. She is knowledgeable, professional and organized and is an excellent communicator. I always know the status of our homes by both phone calls and her online timeline. She also has an excellent network of mortgage brokers, inspectors and insurance companies to help along the way. If you're thinking of buying or selling, give Kathryn a call.
Kathryn and her team did an excellent job. They showed empathy in understanding this can be a stressful experience and patience in answering all my questions as I wanted to make sure I understood everything along the way. Finally, I felt confident that the answers I received were accurate and they were provided to me in a timely manner. To me these are key services to meeting and exceeding a customer’s expectation and why I would absolutely recommend them to friends and family, as well as use them again if the need arises.

Kathryn was amazing! This was our first home purchase and she could not have made it any easier. We purchased a bank owned home and Kathryn kept us on track the whole time. She was very honest & knowledgeable about the entire process and was quick to reply to our questions. We are so excited to be in our new home and could not have done it without her!

I found Kathryn because of her Lake Como Newsletter. I loved what appeared to be her in depth knowledge in my neighborhood. After meeting with her I knew she was knowledgeable about my area as well as others and she was TOP NOTCH. From the beginning I trusted her and let her absorb any and all stress which was great! The process went smoothly and she and her team took care of everything. If I ever sell or buy a house in Orlando again Kathryn will be my agent.
