    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    I love that I am in the business of helping people either find their FIRST home or their DREAM home. It is an incredibly satisfying place to be. Buying or selling a home should be a seamless process and as a Professional Realtor I will make that happen.

    My husband and I moved to the Richmond area in 1984 after spending over 4 years in the Middle East where my husband was a pilot for the President of the United Arab Emirites. It was a wonderful experience but it was great to return to the "good old" USA.
    My husband is a retired pilot for USAirways and flew the AirBus all over the United States and Europe. He loved what he did. We have two beautiful daughters. Kimberly at 38 and a graduate of Radford University, is now a Senior Vice President, Commercial Loan Officer at Village Bank. She is married and has a sweet precious girl named Ellie Grace who is 10 and Jack Devlin who is 6. Erin 35, graduated from Radford University and the University of St. Augustine, Florida with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She is now working for the McGuire VA Hospital in Richmond, Virginia as a Physical Therapist and loves working with our soldiers. She is married and has a little girl named Ashton who is 6 and Theo who is 3.
    Real estate allows me the time to spend with my family and friends and another love.....traveling the world.
    Thanks for spending time with me.

    Laurie gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    I moved from the West Coast to the East Coast in mid-October 2021. By November, i was ready to start searching for my 'new' home. My daughter found a home online that she thought would interest me, so she contacted the agent listed ... It was Kathy Carmichael. The house wasn't the right one, but Kathy was exactly who I needed. She listens carefully to your ideas and needs and has a natural intuition to match those needs to help you. She is very knowledgeable about the larger Richmond, and knows individual neighborhoods well. She is genuinely interested in your likes, dislikes and style. Kathy is well connected with great property inspectors, mortgage bankers and insurance agents, if you don't already know and have your own. She knows how to work around and through the negotiating process, in case of multiple interested buyers. I know Kathy Carmichael will work hard for you, to find you your next home.
    Charles gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    We had such a great experience looking for a new home with Kathy. She knew what our priorities were and turned over every stone to help us find the absolute best fit! Kathy is personable, and works hard to learn every detail about the home and community, easily building connections with people along the way. We would recommend Kathy to anyone, and should we leave our lovely new home, we would use her again!
    Jerry gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy has been an outstanding person to work with. Locating from out of state as well as dealing with the pandemic, we found her skills to be invaluable. She was an immense help and never let those challenges deter her. She went above and beyond what most people would consider routine. We felt 100% confident in her abilities; Our lengthy endeavor to purchase a home was always met with enthusiasm and expert care.
    Randy gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    I recently took a new job that requires relocating, so the most important things for us was selling fast and maximizing our selling price. Kathy knocked both out of the park! Everything went as smoothly as we could have hoped for. I would not hesitate to use Kathy and Woody Hogg ERA in the future and would absolutely recommend her to friends and family. Great job to Kathy and her entire team! We are very thankful for all your help.
    Chuck gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    I really enjoyed working with Kathy, she is a true professional. She was attentive to our housing requirements and was a great asset after we made our offer. I will definitely recommend her to others that are in need of a realtor.
    Judy gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy did an amazing job helping us sell our home! Her energy and enthusiasm were incredible. She was always ready to respond to our questions quickly and thoughtfully! She made herself available days, nights, and weekends. Kathy followed through on every detail and went above and beyond in all areas! We loved working with her!
    Michelle gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy is truly amazing! She assisted me in selling my home as well as the purchase of another home. She is so much more than a 5 star rating. She was my shining star throughout my selling and buying process. Her professionalism, knowledge , and understanding of my needs made the process seamless.

    Kathy is one of the best agents i worked with .
    Karleen gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Wow where does one begin when sharing how above and beyond Kathy will go to meet the needs of her clients! Kathy was so patient, kind, understanding, caring, compassionate and so loving during a crazy pandemic that we went through while selling and buying a new home. Through many ups and downs and not the right land or home. Kathy kept being such a POSITIVE light saying when it's right we will find the 'right home' and it will happen. The house we didn't even have or area on our radar stumbled on us and BAM everything fell into place! Kathy was prompt on answering questions and explained everything to us so we understood everything and helped us understand things we weren't certain on. Kathy loves her job and loves people and it's evident in all she does to help people find the house that is tight for them! I cannot say enough good things about Kathy she will definitely go above for guy in helping you sell and buy a home! We were so very pleased with the entire process with her and anyone who has her as their realtor will be extremely satisfied like we were even during a pandemic LOL

    From day one, I truly felt a bond with Kathy...she came by & gave good solid advice to help w/the sell of my home. Her knowledge & expertise was needed & greatly appreciated on a never travelled journey as I hadn't sold a home before. More importantly, I never felt as if this was a business transaction, rather i felt like I had a treasured friend by my side, guiding me along the way. I encourage all to select Kathy & she will make it happen!!!
    John gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    I told Kathy what I needed with the sale of my property and she got it done efficiently and in a timely manner. Her knowledge of the housing market is superb. I recommend her highly.
    Jessica gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy is great to work with! She got our house sold fast!!! Highly recommend to anyone!
    Wade gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    As sellers of a home of 35 years, we had a number of stops and starts in getting the house emptied and ready for sale. Kathy was getting nibbles from interested folks way before we were able to finally put it on the market. She had good knowledge of the local market. Her connections and reputation among other real estate professionals got a quick bid and sale when the house was finally ready.

    Joyce gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Through Kathy's guidance, knowledge and professionalism I was able to purchase my retirement home in the Richmond,Va. area after a 50 year absence. She met with me immediately and proceeded to direct me to neighborhoods that fit all of my needs. Kathy listed my house in a tough market north of RVA and I had a contract in two weeks. She arranged photographic images of my home that were crisp and stunning. My home showed extremely well which prompted Kathy to notify me numerous times that showings were in store. I knew little about negotiations, she allowed me to call her when questions arose about my contract. Mrs. Carmichael patiently guided me through the process and I was comfortable. My retirement home is the fifth purchased over a lifetime, it means a great deal that I worked with Kathy who immediately was in tune to how important this home sale was to me. When she sold my home in rural Va., she put me in position to realize my dream of returning home after a 50 year absence. Mrs. Kathy Carmichael has my highest recommendation. Joyce Black Coffey.

    She is great to work with. Honest and truthful.
    Sharon gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy is delightful to deal with. The only thing was her proximity from our area. I would have loved to see her more during this process and consult a lot of different things with her during the building process. It was a challenge though because of the distance of where she's at. we loved dealing with her though because she is very trustworthy and very knowledgeable. She also provided us with the best resource possible when we were selling our previous home. We would definitely recommend her.

    Kathy is delightful to deal with. The only reason why I did not read her five stars, is because of proximity. I would have loved to see her more during this process and consult a lot of different things with her. It was a challenge though because of the distance of where she's t. we love dealing with her though because she is very trustworthy and very knowledgeable. She also provided us with the best resource possible when we were selling our previous home. We would definitely recommend her.
    Sam gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy was knowledgeable about the local market and what was needed to sell the house fast. We got two offers on the first open house day and closed quickly after. She also recommended a closing attorney for a reasonable price and the whole process was done without me being present as I live out of state.
    Judie gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy was awesome in meeting our real estate needs. Her experience in real estate and her many years of serving the community were outstanding. Every issue we faced Kathy had a solution. Her professionalism and knowledge were over the top. She was more than an agent in many areas. She made the entire process as painless as possible. I would use her again and I would highly recommend her. She is very task oriented and has great attention to detail. We found her to always be responsive and understanding of any situation. Kathy was a delight to work with and sold my home within a week. You can never go wrong with using Kathy for your real estate needs!
    Stephanie gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    My husband and I were first-time home buyers and also completely new to the area as we were moving from New England for a new job. We were clueless about everything, and we were dreading looking for a house in an area we knew nothing about - especially given horror stories from friends about their first-time home-buying experiences. And, I don't know many other people that can say this, but Kathy made the home-buying process EASY and FUN. She was extremely responsive to our endless stream of questions, receptive to all of our ideas, knew all about the area as she's lived and worked here for years, is the consummate professional, and just has such a strong depth of knowledge of the real-estate game here people working in and around the real-estate community so well. (Also she is extremely thoughtful and charismatic.) I cannot emphasize enough that she went above and beyond what my husband and I expected every step of the way. I would (and plan to) wholeheartedly recommend Kathy to anyone/everyone looking for a house within the Richmond/the greater Richmond area.
    Jennifer gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy is top notch -- professional, knowledgeable, great communicator and supportive. Her experience was tremendous and we sold the house in first showing. She provided great support in knowing how to get it ready for the market, timing of events, and ease of scheduling through the closing. She is a top notch negotiator with client needs in mind. Great experience working with her. Highly recommend her services!
    Tony gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy was great to work with- easy to get ahold of via phone, text or email and even took the time to meet us at our location for our initial meeting. We felt so much more comfortable with her than our previous realtor. It was our first time selling and she brought with her plenty of experience and knowledge to the table. We would highly recommend working with Kathy!

    Nat gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    We were in the market to purchase our first home. We were familiar with the Hogg's having known several of the family members. So, we knew when it was time, we were going to use them. We were teamed up with Kathy. It didn't take long for he to impress us with her attention to detail in knowing exactly what we were looking for. She identified homes that were in our price range, and style. With just looking one day, she found our dream home. We signed contract that same day. Kathy was our true partner in this first time home buyers journey. She was a soothing voice when things got frustrating, never allowing us to get down. She was our stabilizing voice thru out the whole process. We now own our first home, with her help. I/ we highly recommend Kathy, whether it's your first home, or fifth home. If and when we decide to do this again, Kathy will be our realtor! God bless you Kathy!
    Donna gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy did an excellent job; not only did she sell my house in TWO (!) days, she was very supportive and responsive throughout the entire process! I have never sold a home before and she made it so easy by taking care of all the details and patiently answering my many questions. I would highly recommend Kathy and her entire team.
    Zack gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy was excellent in the entire process of helping us purchase our very first home. Was a pleasure working with her and she made everything seem so easy! Will definitely recommend her services!
    Jim gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    My family and I had been looking to move for years but were very hesitant. After a few realtors that we talked to over the years, we met Kathy and she was amazing. Her knowledge of the area far exceeds any person I worked with prior. Her dedication to her clients shines through with everything she does. She always went above and beyond what she had to. She even did things that were out of her pocket to assist with our moving to make it an easy adventure to make. She went from someone we saw on our grocery store cart to someone we feel is part of family. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell. She made the whole stressful experience much better.
    Scott gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy, has vast knowledge of the local area and understands selling a home is personal for the seller -- took the time to understand why we were selling and what our new home requirements were before she took any action. Has and will recommender her for future sellers both family and friends; true professional.
    Pam gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy was such a pleasure to work with. She took care of everything and was always able to get me the answers to all the questions I had. I would absolutely use her again and will recommended her to friends I have that are buying or selling.
    Kory gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy went above and beyond our expectations. There were many times we dealt with both an unreasonable buyer agent as well as the buyers themselves, everything from the agent's incompetence regarding the agreement paperwork to the buyers' continued bantering of wanting "everything but the kitchen sink." Kathy handle every situation with grace, professionalism, empathy and compassion. Kathy's attention to detail is nothing short of amazing down to the very unexpected and most appreciated front door mat to our new home. If there were more than five stars for rating Kathy's service, we'd choose them all. We'll certainly come back to Kathy for our future real estate needs and will wholeheartedly recommend her to any friends, family and colleagues having a need for real estate services.
    Thomas gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    We have been working with Mrs Carmichael for the last couple years. Her knowledge in real estate is top notch. She has found us numerous amazing deals and continues to send us leads daily. While searching for new real estate investments, while at times can be unpleasant, she always brings joy and always remains the utmost professional. After transactions are closed, she makes sure everything closed with our satisfaction, if there are any discrepancies she will figure out a way to make things right. So just because the deal is closed and all parties are paid, she is still working for you. We will continue to use Mrs Carmaichael as long as she is willing to have us. Thank you, looking forward to the next one!!!!

    Kathy is an incredibly thorough and knowledgeable Realtor who knows how to strongly negotiate on behalf of her clients. Her high level of professionalism and quick responsiveness are second to none. We feel very blessed to have worked with her in buying our home and consider her a dear friend since.
    Cecil gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy is awesome. She is very attentive going through the buying/selling and closing process. She always answered our calls (unless she was with another client which is acceptable and to be expected) and was quick to respond to our emails and texts. We had more than our fair share of hiccups (indecisive/unstable seller) with closing on our house of choice. With her knowledge of the market she was able to recommend the same house in the our school district of choice in just a few minutes. I can't recommend her enough, if we ever have to move again we are calling her. Thank you Kathy for all of your help.
    Randi gave Kathy 5 stars out of 5
    Kathy was such a joy to work with as well as very helpful! She was determined to help my fiance and I find our perfect home and she did it! I could not have asked for a easier experience. I have very high anxiety and she made sure the process remained as stress free as possible. She also found the house my in-laws live in now! She is just wonderful!

    Kathy is very personable and easy to work with. My wife and I never felt pressured into anything. I would recommend anything interested in buying or selling a house to call her. She is one of the best in Richmond, VA.
