What Clients Are Saying

I am the executor for my aunt's estate. I found myself with a home to sell in MA. I live in NC. Kathy was recommended to me. After our first meeting, I knew she was who I wanted for an agent. She is a true professional. She knows the local market well. She expertly advised us on what needed to be done to the house and what was a waste of time and money. Kathy really went the extra mile. We got an acceptable offer in five days on market. If you need an agent in the Framingham area, call Kathy! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I met with Kathy last year in anticipation of selling the house to add to the curb appeal. Her suggestions were helpful. When she listed the house, it sold quickly, thanks to her marketing ability. She helped smooth the closing process and the house closed on time. - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

AMAZING REALTOR! At our convenience, Kathy came to our home and did a very complete walk-through including the outside property and structural appearance.Then we talked about home sales in our city. Kathy, with paperwork in hand, reviewed all of the comparable homes in our area with us including their living space, location in our town, time on market and pricing. Then she presented us with two selling models for our home. The first was based on selling our home in the condition she previewed and the expected time-on-market in that situation. The second sales price and time-on-market model was based on the home presentation should we perform updates to our home that Kathy suggested (she also told us what not to update as certain things would not increase the sales value of the home or the appeal to the market). She handily explained what each update would bring to the home in terms of value and presentation. There was no pressure to choose either option. We felt she gave us two very honest assessments and left the decision completely in our hands. We opted to make the suggested updates. Kathy was easily able to connect us with professionals to handle any job we needed at very fair pricing. The work was done quickly and our home looked incredible. Kathy was amazing throughout the entire process, responding very quickly to all of our questions and concerns and doing a lot of hand holding throughout. She was spot-on with her assessment of our home and the market. Our home was sparkling and move-in ready for the new tenants. After only 16 days on the market and several offers, our home sold for top dollar, exactly as Kathy predicted. Kathy's work followed-through to the closing. She handled the fire and smoke inspections for us and the water read so that we didn't have to be present for either. We can't recommend her highly enough! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy helped us sell our previous house and buy the next one. Kathy is a thorough professional, she is very responsive and provides accurate information without sugar coating anything. One of the main reasons we chose Kathy was her proven track record of listing houses at the right price and selling houses quickly. She assessed our house, gave us advice on what could help sell the house and connected us with a great contractor to get the job done. She also helped us with some pretty tough negotiations when it came time to buy our house. - Buyer & Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy Foran represented me (home seller) for a house sold in 2019. She is constantly in contact, with all the vital information to close a deal. For sellers: you will know open issues and what you need to do next. Kathy has a great pulse on the local market: what is a good asking price, by season, and trade-offs/reasonable negotiation points. She is direct about what a seller needs to attend to and why. Always available for questions. Highly recommended. - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My wife and I recently sold our home in Framingham. After losing out on a home we really wanted 11 years ago to a couple represented by Kathy Foran, I knew who I wanted representing us when it was time to sell! I called Kathy right away, and I even told her about the disappointment we felt in not having her represent us as a buying agent 11 years ago. Kathy came by a few days after our initial call and sat down with us to go over everything. She then toured our home, sat down again, and told us what she thought. I can tell you now from experience, listen to what this wonderful woman has to say! She is the best PERIOD in MetroWest. She laid out precisely what we needed to do to get our house ready for sale. She went over the process for the open house, and she told us her sales strategy. Everything, and I really mean everything, Kathy said would happen...happened! She is tirelessly always working for you. We are so happy we met her. Besides being a great agent, she is honestly just a great person. I know we will never forget her! Thank you so much Kathy! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

As a seller, we're incredibly grateful that Kathy Foran was our real estate agent. Her enthusiasm for our single-family home, her extensive experience in the MetroWest real estate market, her list of contractors essential in resolving unexpected buyer concerns, her insights and recommendations for putting the best foot forward, and her agility/flexibility in dealing with unexpected issues are just a few examples of her professionalism. With this year's high-water table from the excessive rain, we had a natural spring surface in our side yard at the last minute that created a significant handicap to most buyers. Kathy never wavered in her commitment to seeking an equitable solution and worked with us over several weeks to find and implement a solution that captured the buyer's interest and final commitment. In a career that's moved us all over New England, this was our 12th home to list and sell. Without question, Kathy was the best Realtor we've had. - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy is AMAZING! At all times, Kathy treated the sale of our home as her first priority... although she had many other homes that she was managing. She is very professional and her communication throughout the process was much appreciated. I would recommend Kathy to friends and family. - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy is an expert in the Framingham market and is a pleasure to work with, both in buying my new house and selling my existing house. She is always responsive to calls and messages at all hours of the day and night. She also has a great list of contacts for additional services that I needed. She put me in touch with a handyman, mortgage broker, and attorney that were all great to work with as well. - Buyer & Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

There is a reason why Kathy is the #1 real estate agent in Framingham. She knows the business, she knows the right people, and she works her tail off. She worked patiently with us for almost a year helping us to find our perfect home. When we finally found “the one” she worked diligently with the other side to make sure our offer was accepted while ensuring that our requirements were met at the same time. When it was time to sell our own home, she was able to bring in four offers all well over asking price after just a single open house weekend. On both sides of the transaction Kathy was with us every step of the way, answering our questions and providing updates night and day. I highly recommend Kathy, there is no one else I would trust with such a big life event. Her expertise runs deep, she has an eagle eye for attention to detail, and she always made us feel like we were her top client. - Donna Hong, Buyer & Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was selling my house due to relocation across the country. From my very first conversation with Kathy, I found her to be flexible and honest. In our first meeting (this is prior to selecting her as my Realtor), she explained all the fees right up front so there were no surprises and then went into the details of the current market. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable about the area and preparations for selling my house. She was very thorough during the process and stayed in constant contact. This was extremely helpful to me as I was working from the west coast a good portion of my time selling. Another item which was a tremendous help was Kathy connections which helped me not only prep the house but before close tie up any loose ends that needed completion (a side note she set up for me). I would highly recommend Kathy as she is a true professional when it comes to the real estate market and definitely knows her business. As an added bonus, she is extremely easy to work with and cares about her clients! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Throughout the entire selling process, Kathy was professional, personable and responsive. She kept us well informed of every detail. Due to her diligence, the property was sold in less than three months. I would highly recommend Kathy Foran to anyone looking to sell a house! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy worked tirelessly and professionally to sell this property that was not an easy sale. Finally the right person came along and will get to enjoy an exceptional home. I look forward to working with her again and would recommend her and her efforts to anyone buying or selling. - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"If you want something done well, ask the busiest person you know" certainly applies to Kathy Foran! She is the top salesperson in Metro West! Kathy is most professional while maintaining a very personable approach to everything she does. We first contacted Kathy about six months before the sale. She graciously came over for a walk through to let us know what we should do to make the house most attractive for sale. Her recommendations were on target and the house sold the third day that it was on the market! She also discovered exactly what we were looking for in our new downsized house. She found it for us and then told us how to come up with the winning offer to make it our own! We are now happily living in our new home and Kathy made the whole process seamless for us. I can't recommend Kathy Foran more highly! She is the BEST. - Buyer & Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We recently sold our home through Kathy Foran and were very pleased with all her efforts on our behalf. Kathy is a true professional who takes pride in a job well done. We highly recommend her.We first contacted Kathy several months before we wanted to put our home on the market. Our plan had been to talk with 3 Realtors and then select one to work with. Kathy made our ‘list of 3’ when our google search showed her as the top salesperson in Metro West. We soon learned how she achieved that distinction. Kathy came to our initial meeting well prepared. Not only had she researched our home, finding all permitted work that had been done over the years, she also brought details on all the comparable houses in the area. She took time to walk through our home with us and listened thoughtfully to our plans & concerns. She reviewed the comparables with us and discussed her recommended pricing approach. She suggested some updates that would help sell the house more quickly and even provided the name of a contractor who could do the work if we decided to pursue those updates. After that meeting we decided there was no need to look any further - Kathy’s knowledge and energy had us hooked. We felt confident she would work hard to sell our home at the best price. Kathy’s recommendations for updates were right on target. Our house went on the market on a Thursday. After several private showings Friday and an Open House Saturday we had two over asking offers. Once we accepted an offer Kathy continued to support us. She connected us with professionals to handle necessary updates stemming from the buyer’s home inspection. She recommended a wonderful local lawyer to represent us in the sale and even had a great moving company recommendation to help us with our move. Anything that needed to be done, Kathy was right there handling the issue or “knew a guy we could call” removing any momentary stress we may have had. Stop looking – Kathy is the agent you want! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy is an absolutely wonderful Realtor. With decades of experience and a clear passion for Framingham, she was able to sell our home very quickly, and for above asking price. We would highly recommend her! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy’s decades of experience has provided for instincts that you can’t get from a lot of agents. Her ear is to the ground and senses changes in the market in real time. - She is professional and respectful of all parties within the sales process. Being in sales myself, this is a very important and useful leverage point. She uses these tools and instincts to her advantage, and that translates into getting the “right deal” put together quickly. I’ve bought and sold homes with Kathy. When you know and trust your real estate professional as I do, the anxiety and potential stress of the process is almost nonexistent. Put your mind at ease and hire Kathy the next time you are in need of a professional real estate agent. Easiest 5 star review, ever! - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We contacted several agents when we decided to sell our home. Kathy was the only one to have gone to city hall and noticed that we had three outstanding building permits. That put her over the top with us. It was a hassle to close those permits (3 months), and we're sure if we had to deal with that issue near the closing, it probably wouldn't have happened. It was a pleasure dealing with Kathy. She was helpful, responsive, professional, and got us over the asking price for our home. - Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you want the best, Kathy Foran is your Realtor! She knows Framingham inside and out, is caring and knowledgeable, gives great advice, and provides personal service the entire time. Don’t need to look anywhere else. She got us top price and sold in less than a week from posting. - Marcia Lobos, Seller (Framingham, MA)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathy was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her. She was professional, organized, and responsive throughout the entire process. Her expertise, years of experience, and consistent communication were most helpful and very much appreciated. - Nick Diieso, Seller (Framingham, MA)
