It’s a Great Day… Kathie A 


Licensed in Illinois and Wisconsin and serving Lake, McHenry, Cook, Kenosha and Walworth counties, I work hard to ensure that buyers and sellers have all the information they need to reach their goals. I put 110% in my work to make sure my clients walk away from their sales or purchase fully satisfied.

If you are a home buyer or seller in Libertyville, Vernon Hills, Gurnee, Mundelein, Lindenhurst, Lake Villa, Grayslake, Antioch, or surrounding area in need of a REALTOR® who’s caring, compassionate, and will not stop at anything to meet both your spoken and unspoken needs… consider thinking of me.

Although real estate is my passion, I didn’t start out in the field. I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in art education. The agent that sold us our home suggested I go into real estate, so in 1976 I began selling real estate — I sold two homes in my first week on the job!

After so many years in the business, my expertise is honed to expertly guide buyers and seller through their often-complex home buying or selling experience. Especially exhilarating is assisting first-time homebuyers to close on their new home! Educating buyers and sellers is a large part of my work; I make certain that they receive all the information they need to make the decision that is right for them.

My degree in art education has helped me in staging and decorating homes to get them ready for sellers, as well as coach other agents. I enjoy a challenge and will go above and beyond to get you what you’re looking for.

Family is a very important part of my life; when I’m not helping clients find their dream home or staging homes to be sold, I love spending time with my husband, Perry, our kids, and granddaughter. As much as I love being a mother and ‘Ma’, I gain additional joy by being a dog mom to our loveable pups, Midge and Chloe.

Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, a seller, or an agent looking for advice, let my expertise and dedication guide you. It’s my goal to educate and guide you through the process and meet all your real estate needs. I look forward to working with you!

Helped me buy and sell homes

Kathie Anderson has helped us not only buy our first home years ago, but now has helped us sell that home (in only 48 hours!) and buy our forever home. It's not just her expertise in the process and knowing the market of where ever she is selling, she cares about every step of the process most importantly her clients. She listened to our needs and concerns. After giving us excellent tips on staging our home, she took beautiful pictures for the listing. She cares about guiding her clients through process and makes sure they are protected through a very stressful process. Thank you so much Kathie!!!

Helped me buy home

Kathie has over 40 years of experience and knows each neighborhood in Lake County like the back of her hand. Kathie did an outstanding job smoothing out the buying process even when our first appraisal missed it's mark by a long-shot. Kathie was able to provide us with a great local lender that found the right appraiser for the job.Kathie was easy to contact and it seemed like she never stopped working for us which worked out for me because I had a LOT of questions.My wife and I couldn't be happier with our new house, thanks Kathie!

Kathy listens to your needs and goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. She is well organized and available when needed. she sold our home and helped our future son in-law purchase his first home.

Helped me buy home

Kathie made it all seamless, starting with our long-distance visits for showings, and through to the painless closing. As a former Realtor, I know what it takes behind the scenes to accomplish a smooth experience, and that's where Kathie's experience shines through.

We were from out of state, settling my parents estate, and a long time friend recommended Ms. Anderson to us. Knowledge, professionalism and the "getting the job done quickly, efficiently & right" are just a few of the words to describe the work that she did for us. Kathie knows all the ins & outs, is current with trends in the area and constantly updated us on the progress of events. From how to set up the property to sell, to the end of closing she was on top of every detail. Highly recommend Kathie Anderson.

Kathie is the best! So helpful, especially with new first time buyers. She walks you through every step of the way to help you understand the entire process. Would recommend her to everyone I know!

Kathie had us under contract in within 48 hours. She came into our home gave us some suggestions on how to make our home look desirable - we followed her advice and after 3 showings and more scheduled she had a close to full price offer for us. After negotiations we got exactly what we wanted and more. She knows how to make a deal and generate interest. She works for you! Never will we sell with another agent - she is our realtor for life! You can't beat her service and dedication - she treated us like family!

Helped me buy home

Kathie was great. After just a few showing she knew what houses my husband and I would like. She would also let us know the things to look for in a house, and the things to keep in mind when we would go to sell a house. She became more than a realtor!
