I am a native Californian, born and raised in the beautiful East Bay Area.  At age twenty-three I became a believer in the power of real estate to improve lives and enhance financial security when I bought my first home in Moraga.  I have stayed involved in some aspect of real estate ever since.

During my seventeen-year career at Pacific Bell (now AT&T), I held managerial positions in administration, accounting and security as well as Executive Director positions in the financial operations, information technology and operator services call center divisions. While working at Pacific Bell, I became a part-time licensed real estate agent to handle my personal real estate transactions.

I left the corporate world to start a residential design/build/remodel business in Portland, Oregon, with my partner, an architect and licensed contractor.  After five long years in the rain, we relocated our business to sunny Scottsdale, Arizona.  For ten years we specialized in the luxury home market.  During this time I obtained my Arizona real estate license to familiarize our out-of-state Clients with the local real estate market and to better assess the competition in the speculative home-building business.

Several years ago, I moved back to the Sacramento area to be closer to family and friends. After researching other real estate companies, I joined Lyon Real Estate because of its corporate culture, high ethical standards and its focus on, respect for and dedication to its Clients.  I have not been disappointed.  Working in the Roseville office, I specialize in the Granite Bay and Roseville areas although I frequently represent Clients in many neighborhoods in the Sacramento metropolitan area.

With my extensive management background, excellent communication skills, high work standards, enthusiasm for real estate, experience in residential design and construction and my commitment to my Clients, I look forward to many years of helping my Clients reach their real estate goals!

Top Agent on Trulia

Over the years I've bought and sold many homes in all price ranges. I've never had an agent as dedicated to her job as Kathie Sutter. She went out of her way to sell my home in the least amount of time and for the maximum dollar. She even changed light bulbs and baby sat my dog during her open house when I couldn't take him with me. Seldom do I give anyone or anything a 100% rating but she deserves it. Thanks Kathie for a job well done!

Kathie was efficient and detailed in every step of the home buying experience. We never waited longer than a couple of hours for an answer or a resolution to an issue. She answered the phone on weekends and returned calls promptly. Buying a home obviously requires a number of sub-contractors for different inspections, repairs, etc. Every one that Kathie recommended was professional, on-time and on budget. We could not have asked for a friendlier or more professional agent.

Knowledge on all the information that I needed. Always responded to my questions quickly. Dependable with appointments. I felt that I could rely on Kathie to follow through for what I was looking for.

Kathie was great! She helped me sell and buy a home while my wife and I were separated and were going through a divorce. Very Professional. We got more than what we thought we would get.

Kathie Sutter was the comsummate professional...she understood what the situation was, found the ideal buyer and every "i" dotted , every "t" crossed, every detail was taken care of...the lack of problems was a credit to her professional approach, coupled with a warm and gracious manner, made the experience run seamlessly...I would definitely recommend Kathie to all potential buyers and/or sellers.

It was my pleasure to work with Kathie Sutter on a recent home purchase. This was a "short sale" and over several months to closing, Kathie provided constant communication, updates and hand-holding when needed. She is truly a professional with broad product knowledge and is dedicated to her clients. I have and will continue to recommend Kathie Sutter.

Kathie is a very professional agent who works very well with her clients. She has great communication skills, and she treats each client like they are her only client. She is always on top of her transactions, so it makes working with her very easy. Her clients love working with her, and so do I!

It gives me great pleasure to write this reference for Kathie Sutter, who was our Realtor for the sale of my mother's home in Granite Bay. She came highly recommended by my mother's next door neighbor whose home she sold last year on the same weekend it was placed on the market. During our first meeting, Kathie came well prepared with sale prices of comparable homes recently sold and listing prices of homes currently on the market and took us on a tour of nearby homes for sale so we could see the competition. She was very thorough and professional in her presentation, and listened attentively to our desires. She helped us decide on a good listing price.

First, I would like to give you my qualifications for giving a testimonial for a real estate agent. I was in business for 38 years and was transferred around the country every few years. I moved 13 times and have had my share of both good and weak agents. The best agent by far is KATHIE SUTTER period. I probably could stop right here but that wouldn't help anyone know about her skills. First, Kathie is easy to work with. She is knowledgeable and professional. She knows the business from both sides as she was a builder herself at one time. As my agent, I felt comfortable that she was on my side at all times. Thanks Kathie!

I met Kathie a year or so before we decided to sell our home. She kept us up to date with sales and trends in our local area. When it came time to sell our home, she took me to several homes in the area that were also for sale, so I could see the competition and set our sales price. We received multiple offers within a week. I highly recommend Kathie!

I met Kathie through my daughter who also purchased a home with her help. She was so terrific to work with and very dedicated to her client. Kathie was there for me as a first time home buyer. I, or WE, found a home and within 2 months, I was a first time home buyer. I, DEFINITELY, would ask for her assistance again.

Kathie helped me with the purchase of my first home using my VA Loan. Kathie is an amazing agent who treats every client like they are her only client. Her hard work and dedication to my particular situation helped make my home buying process successful and fun.
