My strengths and personality traits help me provide my clients with a seamless real estate experience; I'm outgoing, innovative, results driven, great listener, problem solver, compassionate and a tough negotiator. I love my job as a Realtor because it allows me to do what I love – help people. Real Estate is my passion, and luckily also my full time profession. I chose a career in real estate because I thrive on helping people, and what could be better than helping clients buy and sell homes and investment properties? The challenge of balancing getting clients what they want (either to purchase or to sell), with negotiating the best price, is such a thrill. I am fascinated by the business of real estate, and am always eager to grow in it and continue learning. I was born and raised on the Mexican Border in Far West Texas, and I am a Spanish speaker. Being raised in the desert southwest, I love being surrounded by water here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast! I think I always craved being in a humid climate, sounds crazy to the other locals, but seriously I love it. I have experience in many arenas including teaching, sales, sales training, advertising, marketing, publishing and community service with organizations such as Junior League, Keep Texas Beautiful and United Way of the Virginia Peninsula. All of these combined prepared me to be the best Realtor! I love the diversity of people and cultures here in our area. From military families, to first time home buyers, to retirees looking to relax and enjoy our beautiful weather and rich culture and history, and I love that I get to help all kinds of people in so many different situations. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, traveling, gardening and home improvement projects.
Client testimonials: "Kati provided exceptional assistance to my husband and I when we found ourselves in a situation where we needed to find a house relatively quickly while living in another state. Kati actively listened to us as we described our budget and needs and immediately tapped her extensive knowledge of Coastal Mississippi to recommend areas we might enjoy. Throughout the home buying process, Kati was very patient and supportive, always responding to us in a timely manner, accommodating our unpredictable work schedules, paying attention to the details, and acting with integrity and professionalism. Kati is genuinely interested in helping her clients which is visible in everything she does." L. Williams Ocean Springs, MS “Kati, was very quick to respond to any questions we had and was very helpful in the negotiations of the purchase of our home. She is the best and we will recommend her to any of our friends that are looking to purchase a home!” T. Anderton, Gulfport, MS “Kati was amazing to work with. She helped us to find our dream vacation home. Being that we lived out of town, our time was limited but Kati made the whole process really enjoyable. She was always super responsive to follow up with any questions or concerns that we had. We have bought and sold 5 properties and this one was the best experience that we have had. We would definitely recommend Kati.” D. Alphonso Biloxi, MS “Kati Viola was my agent for buying this house. she was always available to answer questions and provided great information on the area. She was very knowledgeable about the house and helped set up inspections and repair work. Kati had to coordinate closely with the sellers agent due to the complexity of their situation.” T.
