Thank you for your feedback
We were so lucky to work with Kate throughout the entire home-buying process. She is very knowledgeable about the Monmouth County area and helped us find the perfect home for our family. When we were ready to make an offer, she moved quickly to help us put forward the best offer possible. She is skilled, trustworthy, responsive, and has great connections. Thank you for helping us find the perfect home for our family!
We feel extremely lucky having Kate by our side during this pivotal moment in our lives. What we liked the most about her was her friendly, straightforward approach as well as her speed and expertise throughout every step of the way. We were able seamlessly sell and buy our home in a month even as a contingient deal because of all of the resources she provided. Simply an amazing realtor and genuinely a kind person.
Kate was amazing! She taught us so much. Kate was extremely proactive, friendly, and we always felt that we were a priority of hers and top of mind. We would highly recommend her!
thank you very much for your help Real Estate
Kate is a top notch sales associate. She truly gives her all and works round the clock for her clients. She has made the buying and selling process completely seamless and has paid close attention to every detail whether big or small. We couldn’t be happier with her service and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! Thanks, Kate! We love our new “forever home”
I don't have enough great things to say about working with Kate Raftery! My boyfriend and I were about to give up the home searching process after working with another agent for almost a year. But my friend told me I should call her realtor, who was Kate. So we did! The day after Christmas we went to go look at a house and it just wasn't the one, But Kate had a backup plan and showed us a house that just got listed that day and she said do you guys wanna go look at it and we said yeah sure! We fell in love with the house it was everything we wanted! We put in an offer and Kate spoke to the sellers agent and miraculously got our offer accepted! Since it was an REO (foreclosure) it was a very difficult, drawn out process due to the bank being difficult. But Kate did EVERYTHING in her power to make it easier on us and explained everything and answered all of our thousands of questions. She has been so incredibly helpful and has gone above and beyond throughout the whole process! This was our first home purchase and I'm soooo happy we called Kate! We just closed on the house yesterday and moved in today and I can honestly say it wouldn't have been possible without Kate!!!
Kate was great!
I have worked with several real estate professionals in the past, but working with Katherine "Kate" Raftery in this home buying process was the first time I could truly: let go of the reigns, relay the professional judgment and experience, and step back knowing that any and all matters were being handled on my behalf in a skilled, professional, and thoughtful manner. Kate does not just check boxes and look to sell someone the biggest and most expensive house, she listens and understands what a client wants and needs and helps her client throughout the home buying process. I came to rely on her opinions and I often trusted her suggestions over and against my own, and I have not regretted those decisions. In this ever-changing and crazed housing market, she has the sophistication and knowledge of when to be aggressive and when to be more restrained. She is strategic and thoughtful, but always honest and kind. She studies the market, is up to date on trends, comparable houses, and has an eye for detail. It has been wonderful to work with someone who is so obviously passionate and good at her job. I would absolutely and emphatically recommend Kate to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Kate was a buyer’s dream as an agent. She was our biggest advocate and we always felt like she was on our side. Would recommend her to everybody, especially buyers!

Simply put, Katherine "Kate" Raftery enjoys helping her clients achieve their life goals and dreams. Having spent 12 years prior to her real estate career in private wealth management on Wall Street, Kate has leveraged her experience working with families and their general investments to specialize in real estate -- with great results. Her success in assisting her clients achieve their goals has been clear: in her first year as a full-time agent, Kate closed over $9.5 million dollars in sales, helping 16 families find their dream home or move on to the next chapter in their life. “Buying a house is both a personal possession and an important investment. It is unique in that it is also a consumable good. As an agent, I can advise clients using both lenses: navigate the market, filter the noise, provide unparalleled service and -- most importantly -- add in a little fun. This is a big event in your life, you should enjoy the process.“ Kate began her career at Alliance Bernstein in 2007 moving on to Barclays and finally spending 7 years at First Republic Bank. At FRB, Kate was responsible for overseeing $400 Million in Assets Under Management. Most relevant to her current role, Kate worked to bring mortgage solutions to her clients and advised on real estate transactions in an advisory capacity. Kate's background working with credit has proven invaluable to her real estate clients as they look for mortgage solutions. “Working with clients to find their next home is my passion and working with sellers to list and successfully market their home is my pleasure. When I work with a client they become a close friend for the duration of the transaction and in most cases that friendship lasts well beyond the close. My philosophy includes an unwavering commitment to the client, their family and the outcome of their transaction. One client at a time.” Born and raised in Monmouth County, Kate now lives in Fair Haven with her husband and three children and a spritely puppy, Fitz. Kate is an avid Providence College basketball fan and a big enthusiast of exploring the Shore. She serves on the Fair Haven Recreation Committee, founded the Fair Haven 100 Mile Club, and is a member of Promenade Beach Club.
