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 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. ...Read More Read Less

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.

I have lived in this community since 2004 and have nothing but wonderful things to say about Ridgewood Lakes. Several of my friends and family members wanted to purchase homes I have lived in this community since 2004 and have nothing but wonderful things to say about Ridgewood Lakes. Several of my friends and family members wanted to purchase homes here after visiting me. I recommended Kathy Deabenderfer to be their realtor of choice because I have known Kathy for many years and her reputation as a realtor is outstanding. They did purchase homes from Kathy and now reside in High Vista. They all commented on how Kathy was courteous, caring, and highly professional. She lives here and works here and knows this community inside and out. We are lucky to have her as one of our own. ...Read More Read Less

After talking to Kathy on the phone, we knew we After much research on-line, Kathy Deabenderfer seemed to be a perfect fit for us to find a home at DWO. After talking to Kathy on the phone, we knew we were in good hands. There were a number of resales we wanted to see, and we also wanted to talk to a DWO sales associate about the possibility of building. Kathy said she would represent us in the build process as well. When we sent a page of questions to Kathy, she responded to every single question and point in our long list. Her attention to detail impressed us greatly making us very excited about meeting with her in person to start our new home search/purchase.

Kathy arrived at our appointment very well prepared. Based on the resale homes we requested to see, she had selected one more similar home to show us - having paid very close attention to exactly what we were looking for in a new home. As a buyer representative, she far exceeded our expectations as we looked at each home. Deciding to build, she provided invaluable guidance, when needed, during the design meeting. Since we live out of state, Kathy is our on-site representative, removing all stress on our end during the build process.

Kathy's knowledge and professionalism has made us ever thankful we selected her to be our realtor and representative. If you are looking to relocate to this area, relieve your stress and call Kathy Deabenderfer.

The big smile, the outstanding personality and the enthusiasm to help at every step of the process made her the clear choice to work with. She helped us find houses that fit our needs, helped tailor the offers and when we found they home we chose, even helped arrange financing, an inspection and walked us through the entire process. She was there to answer countless questions and calm frazzled nerves, never loosing that infectious smile and positive attitude. Truly a professional in every sense of the word. She treated us as friends and not just clients. If we ever need a Realtor in the future, Kathy will be our first and only choice. ...Read More Read Less
