Another successful sale using Kathy Clifton as my listing agent. On the market 2 days!! She and her team stay on top of the process 24/7. Super Agent! Florence Grindle
Kathy Clifton did an outstanding job marketing our home in Watauga Vista.  She was professional and very knowledgeable about what we needed to do to sell it.  We followed her directions and the results turned out perfectly.  
Without a doubt, we would certainly give her any property we have to sell.  I encourage anyone who may be ready to sell to contact Kathy.  You will be very pleased, I promise you that.
Van and Patsy Capps
When we decided it was time to sell our Franklin, NC, vacation home, we contacted Kathy Clifton because of the recommendation of good friends who had used her as their realtor. We were very pleased!  Kathy was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and always willing to answer questions. She worked diligently to get us a good offer (3, in fact) and was tireless in her efforts to get ‘the deal’ to close quickly. (The listing, sale, and closing all took place within a month’s time!). We gladly recommend Kathy Clifton to anyone searching for a dedicated realtor.
Ann and Jim Smith
Wow, our property was on the market for two days, we had five offers, and it was sold the second day. Kathy and her team made this happen. Everyone was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable throughout the listing selling, and closing process. If we had more property to sell, we would want Kathy as our realtor again.  We had a wonderful experience.  Tim and Lydia
Just recently Kathy sold our property on Frazier Road.  We were very pleased with her honesty and hard work  in selling this property. We  will have Kathy sell our home as soon as we are ready. She is very trustful and we realize how hard she worked for us.
