About Me

About Kathy Curtis

My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Central Coast real estate professional and New Homes Expert, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. 

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home on the Central Coast, please contact me.


Here are a few things some past clients had to say about me...

RE: Kathy Curtis, Realtor
To Whom It May Concern:

My wife and I met Kathy Curtis over a long distance telephone inquiry regarding a new development we had briefly seen on a vacation trip to the Central Coast. We had spent the better part of two days with two different real estate agents looking at properties in Nipomo and now that we were back home in Ohio, we continued our search online. With little to go on but a brochure and floor plans we had picked up at the Vista Roble II model home, we decided to cold call the sales representative listed and see what more we could learn about getting into a Greg Nester built home at a price we could afford. Kathy Curtis proved to be as engaging and helpful in person as on the telephone that fateful day when we agreed to buy a lot and build a home basically sight unseen.

During the entire construction process, Kathy was ready at a moment’s notice to provide critical information (and schedule visits if need be) for vendors, contractors and other essential service people to help us achieve our goal of moving into our semi-custom home in a timely manner. Her able professionalism was outstanding when compared to the 7 realtors we dealt with during the sale of our home in Ohio and our real estate search on the Central Coast. Kathy played a vital role in making our long distance move and building experience such a positive one and continues to be a greatly valued member of our friendship community here.

“With a short time of knowing Kathy I see her as being a detail oriented person without losing sight of the most important things with her real estate business and her clients.” May 3, 2010

Warren Terri, Real Estate Loan Officer, Bank of America


“I first ran into Kathy Curtis through Yahoo Real Estate online search and asked for an agent to contact me. Kathy was quick to respond and extremely personable. She made my real estate search in CA fun and informative. Coming from TX I was just looking for a possible investment on some acreage and Kathy drove me all over the country side. Ultimately I decided against buying in CA due to the extreme ballooned prices in the state. But, I am very fortunate to have gone through the process as I made a life long friend in Kathy and if I eventually decide to buy in this ridiculous CA environment, Kathy will most definitely be the person I contact no matter where I am living.” May 3, 2010

Jason Harmon,


“Our home was on the market during the summer months 2007 (best time to sell) and our agent had 3 open houses during that time. We had gotten Kathy's phone number from a friend and she came out. We then, with mutual agreement, cancelled our contract with our agent and hired Kathy. From that point forward our home was staged correctly, open houses every weekend and the home was sold within 3 weeks AND the buyer agreed to a 9 day closing so that we could go forward with our dream home. Not only was this a miracle, but the joy to work with Kathy was a really great experience. She is honest, excellent communication skills and takes pride in her work. She goes by the book, no exceptions and we love her for all her efforts selling and helping us close on our home. Kathy's personality and business sense draws you to her. She has a heart of gold, and in her business everything turns to gold because of who she is and her hard work.” May 2, 2010

Kathy helped my wife and I with a recent land purchase in Nipomo. We love the area, and Kathy had the local connections we needed to make it all happen! Would highly recommend! -bruce
