Kathleen started her real estate career in 1983 after working as a paralegal in a real estate attorneys office. She was a new Mom and thought this would be the best way to juggle both work and career. After earning the Rookie of the Year award her first year the real estate bug bit her and she knew she had found her passion. She also found an interest in new construction and represented a smaller builder that allowed her to learn another side of the business. In the late 90's Ryan Homes approached Kathleen to represent them in an exclusive community in Orchard Park and she left the existing real estate world to be part of the Ryan Homes Team. 5 years later Marrano Homes recruited her to be their Out of Town Sale Representative and she represented them in Boston, Massachusetts twice and then in Hillsboro Beach Florida twice living, working and managing all aspects of the project she was representing. Once back in Buffalo she stayed in the new construction field but the existing real estate market was calling to her. Kathleen and Jay Coles have known each other for over 20 years and have always had a mutual respect for each other because of their similar work ethic. Kathleen knew that when she did go back into the existing real estate field that there would only be one choice and that would be the Jay Coles Team. She is so excited to be joining his successful team of excellent agents and is looking forward to bringing her expertise of new construction to both the team and her future clients.
On the personal side, Kathleen has two children, four Grandsons ages 1-4 and lives with her best friend Bella - a ten pound toy poodle. She loves to golf, travel and spend time with her family and friends.
