Simply put, Katie Dabe is the BEST of the BEST in real estate. Expert marketing and high ethical professionalism are fundamental to Katie’s commitment to her clients. Trustworthy, honest and hard working, Katie is driven! Choosing to employ Katie Dabe to sell our home was the wisest decision we could have made. And besides all that…she’s a really nice person.
Katie goes above and beyond the call of duty in every aspect. From knowing the area inside out, to attending to every detail in a meticulous way, to marketing the house, to everything, Katie leaves no stone unturned. She is available any time for questions, or showings. And she is a fun person to be around. I would recommend Katie Dabe without hesitation. She is simply the best there is for the area.
Katie is the most professional agent we have ever used. She possesses the old fashion type of customer service to her clients that you just don't see anymore. Combine that with her always current technology in her business, she is the perfect combination of the BEST in her business. We have used Katie on several transactions that have always left us feeling secure in her knowledge and actions that she has taken on our account. If she doesn't have the answer to what you need, you will have it later in the day. Every T is crossed and i is dotted and you can truly leave it up to Katie to take care of and never question anything. Westar, our company would never use anyone except Katie for our business, now and in the future. We have complete confidence in her abilities both personally and professionally.
After having my home listed on and off over several years, it finally sold under Katie's guidance. Katie assisted with the contracts on both the sale of my home and the purchase of a replacement home - all in the space of a few weeks. Throughout the listing period and both closings, Katie was the ultimate professional. She is proactive, calm and upbeat, and generally a pleasure to work with. I have been an active agent myself, so I can particularly appreciate how Katie stands head and shoulders above most Realtors. I highly recommend her.
Katie is one of the most professional and hard working agents I know. We have bought two homes and sold one working with Katie and she works just as hard in either the buying or selling scenario. She listens carefully to what your needs are and then delivers! She was referred to me as an outstanding person and real estate agent and I have and will continue to refer her to others for her excellence.
Jack & I are writing to let you know just how much we appreciate all you have done to sell our home here in Candlewood Estates. In such an extremely rough market condition, you dedicated yourself above and beyond the normal Realtor. You have such a positive attitude, and kept us calm even in the hardest of times when we were feeling the stress and pressure of the current market. Your expert knowledge of the Troon North area kept us in the know of what our next move would be. We trusted your knowledge and felt completely comfortable with all you had to suggest to market our home. Not only were you very professional, but you had the ability to make us feel you were a long trusted family friend. Katie you are an asset to your profession and each and every client of yours should rest assured that you got what it takes in this tough market. It was truly "our" honor to have selected you as our Realtor.
Thank you Katie,
Jack and Susie Vogelpohl
Re: Purchase of 9670 E.Southwind Lane. Let me begin by thanking you for finding us a beautiful home! Not to mention all of the other wonderful things you continue to assist us with as we get settled in. I am pleased to be able to write this letter as a testimonial to others who may be considering using your services: I was given Katie's name from a business associate who was delighted with the service she had provided them in the purchase of their new home. Even though I had been in contact with another realtor, I was so impressed with Katie's professional yet easy manner and thorough knowledge of the real estate market in the Scottsdale area, it was easy for me to decide to deal with her exclusively. I was a demanding out of town client from Canada with not a lot of time, and Katie was positive and hard working in response as we worked through numerous listings in a variety of locations to finally narrow our search to the Troon North area and ultimately to Southwind Lane. In addition to the long days spent looking, Katie and I kept in touch by phone and email throughout the whole process and I was always impressed by her prompt and thorough responses and the ability to bring the necessary resources or contacts along to assist with the purchase when needed. When presented with delays in closing she proved to be formidable advocate for me, by ensuring the other parties to the transaction delivered on their commitments. From meeting Katie, to possession of our new home, in less than 60 days, Katie always made me feel like I was her #1 client even though I knew she was very busy and managing a hectic schedule. I have no hesitation in recommending Katie to anyone considering purchasing or selling a home. She is a dedicated and professional individual with a well earned reputation of providing great service.
RE: Paul R. Knapp Estate – 10542 East Mark Lane
I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did marketing the Scottsdale property for my father's estate. You were a true professional during every step of the marketing process. I especially appreciated the following:
1. The market study and recommendation of the list price. This is a difficult market in Scottsdale, and your thorough research helped us understand the market.
2. I have been in the real estate business in Iowa for 30 years, and I have never had a broker keep me as well informed as you did. You even gave me a detailed e-mail after each open house (which you had many during the four-month listing) giving me detail of the prospective buyers including their positive and negative comments regarding the property. This was very helpful to me and gave me encouragement that the property was being actively marketed.
3. You handled the contract negotiations and closing in a most professional manner. Each little problem that surfaced you had a solution. 4. I always knew that you were looking out for our best interest in all matters regarding the marketing of the property and closing of the sale. I really appreciate your effort, especially during these difficult economic times. If I ever buy or sell property in Scottsdale, you will be the first person I contact.
Very Truly Yours,
William C. Knapp II Chairman and CEO
Alex and I are so appreciative of your time and effort to help us find THE IDEAL and PERFECT home for us. We absolutely love our new home. Thank You so much for everything.
Theresa & Alex Schneebacher
For the past several years and up to present time, the real estate market has been extremely difficult. Homes have been hard to sell, and only then at a reduced price. This was the market conditions at the time of listing our house in January of 2008. We had done some research and decided to choose you as our listing agent. Immediately you started with open houses and kept us informed on what people were saying about the house. We got lots of feedback and regular communication. You kept saying that it only takes one to like the house.
Our chance came in June 2008 and you skillfully guided us through the negociation. We were able to get the purchase contract signed quickly and get through the inspection process with only minimal items. The house closed escrow in three weeks in what has to be described as the absolute doldrums of the real estate market. Lucky? Maybe, but your help and persistence and tireless energy got the job done. For this we are eternally grateful. We are certainly enthusiastically happy with the job you did. We heartily recommend you to anyone looking to sell their home.

Meeting you at a Troon North open house was like winning the lottery. We had spent an entire year working with two other realtors trying to find a Scottsdale home. We were immediately impressed with your level of professionalism, extensive knowledge of the area we most wanted, and your ability to extract and locate exactly what we desired. And you did it so flawlessly after we had already viewed over fifty homes! We were resolute on finding the perfect home and our final selection even exceeded our expectations. The mechanics of this transaction were as spectacular as our new view. You surround yourself with a team of professionals that are as exceptional as you are. Whether it was financing, inspections, the title company, etc., our experience at all phases of purchasing our new home was thorough and stress free. We always felt you had our best interest in mind and were helping us to make a solid real estate investment.
We appreciated your constant communication and updates as we were buying from out of state. It became apparent to us that one of the most important characteristics of an effective realtor is finding someone who genuinely listens to what you are looking for. Based on your instincts and attention to detail, we are currently on vacation every day in our own home. We would not hesitate to recommend Katie Dabe to anyone that wants nothing less than a positive real estate experience buying or selling a home.
Kevin & Rebecca Murphy
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your work to market and sell our home in The Monument at Troon North. In a tough current market you brought about a rather quick sale. Even though you were also the buyer's agent as well as the seller everything was handled quickly and professionally. You were true to your word working hard to market and bring about a sale. Your knowledge of the market in Troon was invaluable. Katie you always presented yourself and our home professionally, and you were available at all times by phone or email. In the process of buying or selling communication is so important and it was always available. Doug and I along with Gus also enjoyed getting to know you and always enjoyed your company. You are very upbeat and positive which was and is appreciated. Thank you again for a job well done.

Re: Katie Dabe
I was asked to take on a new business venture in the the United States in late 2006 which required that my wife and I relocate to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area during 2007. We met Katie Dabe in May, 2007 at an open house in the Troon North area. She made an immediate and very positive impression on us and, as a result, we decided to retain her to help us find an appropriate home in North Scottsdale.
We worked with Katie from May, 2007 to August, 2007 to find the best home for us that matched up with our tastes, needs and budget. Ultimately, we were able to acquire the desert house of our dreams and closed on a beautiful home in Troon North in October, 2007.
I have been involved with a number of real estate agents over the years and have found Katie to be the most professional, knowledgeable, thorough and, most importantly responsive realtor that I have dealt with in the last 30 years. Furthermore, we found her to be very knowledgeable about the Troon North and surrounding area.
I would not hesitate in recommending Katie to anyone to represent them in real estate transaction in Troon North or the greater North Scottsdale area.

Ms. Katie Dabe, worked with my husband, Tony Pierce, and I over the past year in both the purchase and sale of our homes and I'd like to commend both her work and your company for the services provided. Katie was tireless in her efforts to ensure we found the perfect new house as well in attempting to find a buyer for our existing home. She kept in constant contact, made sure we got the answers we needed and never failed to assist us in any request and/or in following through to assure a smooth transaction. In addition to being a true and knowledgeable professional, Katie is an extremely pleasant person and working with her made even the most frustrating situation more tolerable. Unlike many other agents we've dealt with, Katie shows a real commitment to her clients and brings integrity to the process. My husband and I will most definitely recommend Katie to our friends and associates. We feel she is a valuable asset to your company.
I'm writing to let you know how much Steven and I appreciate you, Katie Dabe, "The Realtor with a Heart"! You have that East Coast drive, focused determination and unbelievable passion for what you do- real estate. And it rings through loud and clear. As you know, this year was a difficult one for us and we didn't need any more drama. Your cool, calm, and controlled attitude throughout the entire selling process helped make everything run smoothly.
Our house sold within 44 days in a down market. I don't believe this would have happened as quickly without your insurmountable efforts. Being a real estate agent myself, I know what it takes to stage a home, improve its appearance and present it to the public. And for all your efforts in showing our home it received "Best of Show". Without your tenacity, in leading people to our home a sale would not have happened so quickly. Your passion is our benefit!! Thank you Katie for all that you did, and for all that you continue to do for us as your clients. We should not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family!!!
Donnamaria and Steven Bees
Hi Katie, We just want to say thanks for all your help! Your enthusiasm, hard work & attitude were very much appreciated. In our opinion, you are a "Stand Out" in your profession.
Bob & Peggy Katie,
Just a note to say Thank you for all of your help. Tyra & I are very pleased with the house. Thanks for helping us find exactly what we wanted. I have some friends who will be calling you for help.
Randy & Tyra
Dear Katie, We were so impressed with your professionalism, efficiency, and attention to detail throughout the entire purchase process. You went over and above the call of duty with your service. The process was made much easier through your efforts, given the fact that we were absentee buyers. You coordinated the communications between parties perfectly. We were always informed, and you kept our best interest in mind. We felt very comfortable with you and your abilities. We loved working with you, and will highly recommend you to anyone seeking a great agent!
