Kathy specializes in the active adult communities of High Vista and Del Webb Orlando, both located inside of Ridgewood Lakes, a gated golf course community. Before becoming a full-time agent in 2014, Kathy spent most of her working career in the new home construction industry. For many years, she was the Administrative Assistant to the Orlando Division President of a large national builder.

Living the "active adult lifestyle" as a resident of Ridgewood Lakes since 2004, Kathy knows her product and has an understanding of the questions, concerns, and needs her clients have. Her strengths include staging homes for professional photos, negotiating contracts, and holding the hands of both sellers and buyers from the time they meet, until the day of closing.

Kathy provided to us from the listing to the sale of our home. She is extremely knowledgeable and very patient with any questions or concerns we presented. It is with great pleasure that we recommend this team.

Kathy is one of a kind. We cannot say enough good things about her. She took us on a tour of the facilities and I think she knows everyone in the community and everyone spoke very highly of her to us. We worked with her in the spring and just could not find "the home" we were looking for. She stayed in touch with us through the summer months and when we returned to Florida for the winter she called us saying she thought she had just the house we have been looking for. She was right. We agreed, and from the moment we said yes, she was on fire. Her dedication to us made us feel that we were her only clients, keeping in touch almost daily. After walking with us through every step of the process, she had surgery on the day before closing. So, she texted us from her hospital bed to make sure everything was going to our satisfaction. Dedication? Wow! Her knowledge of Del Webb/Ridgewood Lakes is outstanding, and the team she has working with her cannot be beat.

What can I say about Kathy Deabenderfer that hasn't been said before, but I will attempt it anyway.
Kathy was very attentive to all of my question and requests. Even when the questions were asked a couple of times before, as yours truly forgot the answers she had provided at least once before. She was helpful in every step of the process from the showing to the closing. Without her assistance and hand holding I do not believe I would have ended up purchasing the property.
Kathy explained all the steps I would have to do to take control of the property. Phone calls I would need to make for the cable, electricity, water, etc. This made the tasks I was responsible for easier on me.
Our process was complicated by the abbreviated process of obtaining a loan. Chase had pre-approved me and then after a month of providing the necessary documents they dis-approved my load application. This changed our purchase from a mortgage process to me paying for the house on my own. Kathy was up for the task of making the necessary changes to our purchase to make this to happen.
While getting the money together to pay in full for the property, I contacted a mortgage agent the Kathy had suggested at the start of the contract process and was able to secure a mortgage. Now Kathy had to spin around again and prepare the whole process back to where we started from.
Again all I can say is without here help and assistance there would not have been a sold on the property.
