    I would like to say thank you again, Ms. Kate! Without your guidance and your ability to just listen to my worries and uncertainty about certain manners of the contract I would of not been able to go through with the deal. A little bit of history will help the story Our house at 604 Ridge Lake Road in Crestview was sold to my husband and I in the year 2000 by Ms. Kate's mother Ms. Kathy. My husband was getting ready to retire after 22 plus years in the Air Force. We wanted our retirement dream house and her mother Ms. Kathy made all that possible and we were Blessed. Since my husband's passing in 2014, our house became my sanctuary of family memories and stillness. When the time came for me to make a very difficult decision to sell I was introduced to Ms. Kate. ( the daughter of Ms. Kathy) I quickly found out Ms. Kate was the person I needed! Ms. Kate always performed very professionally, always went above and beyond all my expectations. Ms. Kate went to battle for me in regards to the appraisal ( which came in lower than expected) on my house. We were able to dispute the appraisal and we won!!! Had her persistent and understanding not be present at that time I would of had to fold on the contract. I truly do not know what else to say, except thank you from the bottom of my heart! My new journey continues with your help. I do have one more thing to share. I want to say thank to Ms. Ann ( part of Ms. Kate team) she was there to help me understand paper work and keep me organized. I can not thank every one enough!!! What a perfect TEAM!! Deb C
    Jeff gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    From the first sit down meeting until the completion of the sale of my house, Kate and her team were always available to answer any question and provide valuable guidance . It was a pleasure working with Kate and she actually made the process go remarkably well each step of the way. Her support staff Ann was in touch practically daily to ensure I was aware of where we were each step of the busy and sometimes hectic process. Kate's professionalism and dedication to ensure a successful outcome was always present and led to a most successful selling event I could ever imagine . I couldn't thank her and her team enough. I would highly recommend contacting Kate with any of your real-estate needs and see for yourself how wonderful of a agent she is and what her dedication can do for you.
    Jenn gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    I would absolutely recommend Kate to use for your real estate needs. She was thorough, honest, organized and prepared for every meeting we had. We actually found our home a lot faster than expected. She walked us through every step of the process, which can be quite intimidating if you have never purchased a home. She made us feel comfortable, asking any and all questions and was able to give valuable input in areas we were even unaware of to ask about. If you are looking for a young, professional agent who has a pulse on the local community, Kate is your agent!
    Jay gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate and her whole team are outstanding. Their greatest strength is their communication, and personal knowledge of their clients. Kate shows genuine concern for her clients needs. Selling or buying a house can be very stressful, however Team Beam makes it easy and stress free. I have purchased and sold a house with Kate and would strongly recommend her to anyone
    Debbie gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    I met Kate thru my son, who had suggested that she might be able to shiw me a few houses. Upon meeting Kate I instantly felt a connection with a young lady that wanted to help me find my house! After showing me multiple homes with never a complaint, I finally found it...my new home! Thats when Kate made it all coming together for me without any issues. Fabulous young lady that I'm now happy to call a friend!

    This was the second time we used Kate and she did not disappoint. She is extremely good at what she does and stayed patient with us during all out questions and concerns in the home buying process.
    MATTHEW gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    When trying to choose a realtor, Kate struck us as someone who paid attention to detail and would be honest with us. She and her team did an amazing job getting our home sold and made the process smooth which took so much off our shoulders. Thanks team Beam!
    Bobbie gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    What a great team to have to sell your home. They took a lot of the stress away for me. Kept me informed and projects moving along. They had great resources to get projects done, so I could get the house listed. Sold just a couple of weeks later after listing posted. I was living out of state and could not asked for a better experience and sell. Thank you again. Bobbie Hartman
    Terry gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Simple stated, Kate is an outstanding agent for your realty needs! Since I would be quickly moving out of state, it was imperative that I negotiated the best price for my home as I relocated. Due to Kate's superb skills as a realtor, she was able to negotiate a full price cash offer for my house in 3 days!! Needless to say, that took a tremendous burden off my my shoulders knowing I had a serious buyer for my former home at the price I wanted. If you are looking for a realtor in NW Florida in buying or selling a home, you first call should be to Kate Beam and her team at ERA!!
    Matt gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate and her team are awesome! I had my house on the market for 4 months with no movement with a different realtor. My family and I are in the military and stationed outside of the state. She took the worry out of selling my house, and at a time that my family and I were in the midst of a serious medical situation, that was greatly appreciated. I cant even begin to thank her and her team enough. She and her team were always on the ball and in constant contact with us through out the process. Believe me when I say she made it so easy! Thank you Kate and all of your folks as well.

    Kate and her team did an amazing job! I would highly recommend her for buying/selling your home!
    Jeffrey & Irene gave Kate 4 stars out of 5
    Texas is HOT! First and foremost, the sale was made most importantly, thank you. However, the negotiating part with sale price reduction felt a bit pressured considering I've compromised the initial original amount fairly desired at start. Nonetheless, based on experienced in 2015 we've decided to repeat business with Kate Beam (ERA). Overall, she has met all request on all other aspects in the sale of the home and she's been attentive and quite patient and is VERY much appreciated.
    Tara gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    We loved working with Kate! She took her time to make sure we got exactly what we needed. She was very patient in answering every question we had and was an absolute joy to work with. We highly recommend her! Thank you so much Kate for helping us find our HOME!
    Billye Carter gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    I highly recommend Kate Beam for any real estate matter. She is professional and informative in dealing with her clients. Kate goes above and beyond by making herself available at any time on any day of the week to answer any questions the client may have. Her communication skills are superior. I look forward to referring Kate and her spectacular team to any person with any real estate need in the future. I worked with Kate on selling several pieces of properties at all different price ranges. Kate is an honest and very hard working real estate agent. Kate not only took care of business transactions in a very timely manner, but she would make a point to ask about the well being of our family members. I sincerely enjoyed working with Kate.
    SSG Jae gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate helped out so much. Being stationed overseas made it hard for me to see the ins and outs of the property, but Kate made it very convenience and sent me detailed photos and videos of all the locations requested. My first home buying experience went by smoothly thanks to Kate.
    Dillon gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Working with Kate has been one of the best experiences I've ever had. I've owned a few houses now and was nervous about getting my last house listed and sold quickly. Kate was able to exceed my expectations. Not only did she spell things out in a way that I could understand, but she was able to facilitate a closing well before the deadline I had come up with. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.
    Bobby gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Was one of the easiest selling and closing experiences I have had.. 6th house I have sold..... Would recommend her to anyone wishing for a smooth sell and Mrs. Ann in the office is an added bonus .... thanks.. bobby and Deanne...
    Tom gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate was wonderful to work with. She new the Crestview market and the "ins and outs" of our particular neighborhood. She used additional methods to just the MLS to get our house noticed and sold. The process could not have been any smoother, and the interactions with Kate and her team were all positive. When it came time to have some minor repair work completed, Kate was able to set us up with a contractor to bang that out. Overall, 100% satisfied and worth every penny!
    Briar gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Team Wilhelm-Beam was fantastic. We worked with them several years ago to list our property for sale. They were with us all the way and provided us the right information. Their analysis told us it was not the right time to sell the property, and because of their insight and experience we deferred on the sale. We came back to them in 2017 and the timing was right. They worked with us to get our property ready to sell. They picked up as if we did not skip a beat since the last time we looked to sell the property. They were extremely proactive and open in their communication. This was a huge piece of mind since we are out of state. They were there working for us on every aspect of the sale. They kept us informed and were very responsive as we listed the property and made repairs. Team Wilhelm-Beam removed the worry of selling a property. We felt they were our advocate and worked exclusively for us. We anticipated the normal issues with the necessary steps towards closing, but it was seamless. I would highly recommend Team Wilhelm-Beam for any matters related to buying and selling a property. Consummate professionals who put their clients at ease. Exceptional people with an exceptional team. Definitely recommend for any real estate issues.

    Kate is full service agent who follows through with results. Highly recommend!
    Matt And Lindy gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    We met Kate by chance as the listing agent of a property we were interested in. We were immediately impressed with her professionalism and kindness for two people unfamiliar with the world of real estate. After that meeting, we knew Kate was the realtor for us. Over the next several months, Kate and her team at ERA worked hard to facilitate the purchase of our new home and the selling of our former home. Their expertise and local knowledge simplified an otherwise confusing and arduous process. They always kept us up to date with the progress and even worked “after hours” to get the job done! Overall, the customer service and personal touch of Kate and her team were extraordinary. We would highly recommend Kate as a realtor and would use her again in the future.
    Michael gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    One word comes to mind when I reflect on our home buying experience utilizing ERA and Kate Beam...Awesome! Kate was always available when we had questions and she never hesitated, even when we placed 4 different offers on 4 different homes. Her work ethic is unparalleled. Dedicated to the real estate profession is an understatement. Best yet, we forged a friendship that is expect will last a lifetime. Selling or buying, Kate and her team should be your one and only choice. Thanks Kate!
    Yon gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    This was a great experience for both of us and working with your team made it all happen. The marketing research was complete and allowed us to get more then we had anticipated for the property. Every step of the selling process was explained and followed up with direct communication with the team. We would not hesitate to go to your team for a future sale!
    Yon gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    To the whole team, it was a great experience! We were always well informed of the process and the next steps to getting a signed contract Market analysis and pricing strategy were spot on and got us more then we had anticipated. The team was always available for our many questions and the fact that we managed to finalize the sale while on a cruise was impressive. If you have never sold a property this is the team we trusted. If you have done this before you will appreciate the experience and talent of this team.
    Trish gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate’s service is exceptional. She goes well above and beyond what is expected of her and explains every aspect of the selling process from start to finish in a way that’s easy to understand. Kate’s enthusiasm as a realtor shows every step of the way, and I felt completely comfortable in trusting her to do what’s best in selling my house. She and her team were very thorough in keeping me informed throughout the process. I would not hesitate to use Kate and Team Wilhelm again, as well as recommend them to any friends and family. They are awesome!
    Sarina gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate helped my husband and I sell our home smoothly when I was joining the service and away for training. She made sure everything was taken care of even when I was hundreds of miles away! She also gave us hope even when we didn't think we could sell our home without losing money. Kate made us feel like we were her good friends and that she would do anything to help us! She TRULY cares.
    Sarah gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Couldn't recommend Kate more! We started our search with a different realtor but are so glad we were referred to Kate after expressing our unhappiness to a local friend. Kate's knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond for us was more than anything we could've expected...which is why we also chose her to list our house after buying through her! Not to mention Ann, part of Team Wilhelm, walked us through every single step and recommendation possible, to include tips AFTER closing on each house. I surely would've missed something if not for her!
    Joseph gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate and Kathy are outstanding people and are amazing at there job. I contacted them on the weekend due to the reviews I read online and they quickly responded. We met that Monday and descused selling my house and all that it had to offer and then met again Wednesday to discuss the terms. I loved how thorough they were with the paper work,discussing everything top to bottom. Even going as far as talking over what each of us expected out of each other. With that being said I proceeded to let them list the house. Less then 24hours on the market we revived a full price offer, but it didn't stop there, they continued to go over the paper work and gave great advice on how to go about thing and so on and so fourth.I honestly couldn't be more happy.

    Kate shoots straight and works hard for you. She is very kind to speak with and you know she's on your side. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor!
    Andrew & Teresa gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    This was our first time selling a house and Kate was extremely patient, professional and obviously knew the local market VERY well. Our situation was a tense one due to the tight timeline we had available in which to sell the house and Kate was on task. She helped us price our house correctly for the market and we closed in less than a month. If you are looking for a hard working, courteous and intelligent realty agent Kate Beam is the agent for you.
    Bobby & Carole gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    We had the very best team when selling our place and buying a new one. They were so prompt when we asked them to put our old place on the market that we hardly thought about the details when they showed it and sold it to a buyer. Meantime they showed us a house that was perfect for us. Then they negoitated a good price for us. The Wilhelm team is a professional group who is very thoughtful and skillful in Real Estate.
    Abigail gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    I was very pleased with the professional and personal care afforded to me from this amazing team! Even last minute details of moving a washer & dryer after hours didn't stump them. Those guys were amazing. Their expertise, patience, and attention to detail was most helpful to me. Thanks so much!
    Karin gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Every experience I've had with Kate & Kathy has far exceeded my expectations, two homes sold and one purchased! Both are extremely professional & make sure you are well apprised every step of the way. Go with Team Wilhelm-Beam & you will be a very satisfied customer, guaranteed!
    CJ gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate was great to work with. Coming back from Europe to Florida I didn't know a lot of the rules about buying a home for the first time. She also helped me narrow down my needs for the house I was looking for. We looked at over 100 houses and built a plan that turned out to be successful in purchasing and also selling. Closing wadstatement fast on buying and selling. If I stilled lived in Florida she would be my agent and recommended to my friends.
    Jeff and Tanja gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    We had a complicated two stage buying process that lasted nearly two years. The time it took to complete the two purchases with Kate and company was NOT due to anything they did. We had too much fun with lenders and folks related to the lending process. Kate (and Ann) and company stayed with us, working tirelessly for and with us the whole time for us to purchase all the parcels of land from a seller in two stages and transactions. I don't know of any other realtors that would have done all they did for us as they did. We are/were very fortunate to have been able to work with them and deeply appreciate their services! We recommend them to anyone and everyone in any realty transaction!!

    Kate Beam and her Team helped us with the selling of our home. From the beginning to the end of the process and in-between, she was incredibly informative and helpful. She made the process so easy! I can't imagine anyone doing a better job! She is professional, personable, experienced, and efficient, I highly recommend her and her Team for all of your real estate needs!
    Mary gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate was very professional and very understanding of my needs to sell my home. She and Ann provided me with timely feedback of each showing and were very positive when my hope had gotten a little shaken near the final closing. They worked well together seeing to it that all my questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner. Thank you both.
    James gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate was such a joy to work with on every level. She made the purchase experience easy as it seems like she did all the work! Her attention to details sets the bar high on true professionalism.
    James gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    Kate and team Wilhelm made the process of selling my home easy. I was always able to get questions answered promptly, I am impressed enough with this team to not only sell my current home but begin the process of buying a future home with them.
    Forrest gave Kate 5 stars out of 5
    By far the best experience I have had in the sale of a home EVER. Kate did an amazing job, and kept me informed of any changes or issues when I was moving out of FL for another job. She was very candid with improvements or tweaks needed to properly show and sell a home. Would without a doubt recommend to anyone within the Crestview/Niceville area.
