Thanks for visiting my website! It's so important that clients and agents work well together so let me introduce myself:
I am Kathryn Timpson - I go by "Kat"- and I currently live and work in Summit New Jersey - I was a 15 year resident of Maplewood and South Orange prior. I am a native New Yorker (born and raised in Greenwich Village). In 1998 when my daughter was a toddler we made the transition from Brooklyn to the Suburbs of New Jersey. I have have owned five homes in Essex and Union Counties since our move loving the idea and premise of bringing older homes back to their original luster and character.
After years of invaluable homeownership expertise, I was recruited by a successful friend to join the ranks of local real estate agents. I started as part of a team, but soon became a single agent so I could craft my own branding and identity.
I never imagined a life in real estate - when I graduated Smith College I went directly into broadcasting as a Video-Journalist at CNN-Headline News in Atlanta, GA then a local television and radio reporter in Woodstock NY. When I moved back to my hometown, I translated that media knowledge into a successful career in global public relations and media training.
My background in national and local media and public relations lends itself perfectly to real estate - I use it daily to devise creative and strategic marketing for clients whether they are buyers, sellers or investors. I ask a lot of questions to get my clients what they want and need. And I am always incorporating the newest technology to advance the interests of clients and my business.
As a community member, I served as a volunteer for my childrens' schools and sports as well as on several boards including the nationally recognized South Orange Maplewood Community Coalition on Race. I have been a regional leader in Toastmasters International and am an awarded speaker. Currently I am a Board and Founding Member of the North Central NJ Network of Women’s Council of Realtors®. To reiterate my dedication to inclusion I have earned the National Association of Realtors’ designations of Accredited Buyer’s Representative® and At Home with Diversity® specialist.
