Lisa Frese

Kathy Schellens was fantastic through this whole transaction as well as years of searching for the perfect property for our business. The sellers agent was less than helpful on many tasks and Kathy did not hesitate to fill the gaps. Lastly, communication is paramount in getting all parties through a transaction, Kathy is always on top of dates, deadlines and constant communication.

Barney Realty LLC

Kathy Schellens has many fine qualities that serve her well as a realtor. Among the best of these and the one my wife Jane and I became aware of upon meeting her is that she's a genuinely nice person. She wasn't acting or pretending in order to get our listing. She presented herself as who she is and we knew instantly that she had our best interests at heart. We came away from that meeting wanting to work with her. When problems arose during the course of the sale of our home, Kathy met them head on and you knew she was drawing on her years of experience in order to mitigate them, which she did unfailingly, and to everyone's satisfaction. Her calm demeanor, self-confidence, and gentle humor never failed to put us at ease. When it comes to choosing a realtor, there is no one we would recommend more highly than Kathy. Sincerely, Jane and Rick Flynn

Very definitely Kathy Schellens is a true professional extremely please

1251 Essex Road, LLC

Kathleen Schellens was outstanding in every way in her performance as our agent in the purchase of a building lot. Despite the purchase process dragging on and on over several months, Kathleen continued throughout to provide service and follow-up above and beyond any reasonable expectations to be certain the purchase agreement was completed. We could not have been more pleased with her advice, service and professionalism.

Steven Simms

I have bought and sold property for over 45 years and have never had a better agent than Kathy Schellens.

Alexander Bell

The property you recently sold for me was a nightmare for the agent... a very modest house on a very nice piece of land. Buyers who could afford the real estate taxes were not interested in the house. It was a lovely house... many would think they'd died and gone to heaven to live there... but the land was "too good". AND there were "problems". Odd things in the deeds, etc. But your agent, Kathy Schellens, never gave up. She kept me fully appraised of how things were going. She showed it again and again, in spite of the lukewarm interest, which must have been discouraging. She made good suggestions, and in a timely manner. "Brought it home"!! AND in the final throes of the sale NEW "challenges" arose... a blocked line to the septic tank, for instance. And she Did What It Took, to Get The Job Done! Very happy with the whole experience.

Thomas Boyd

Kathy Schellens is wonderful. She is professional, caring, very knowledgeable, and IMHO you at Sotheby's are lucky to have her as one of your agents. She was able to successfully negotiate me through the tangled labyrinth of buying a house, and she also handled the selling of my family's large house. We never would have considered another agent. If a top score on 1-5 range was 5, I'd give Kathy a 10 for sure.

Jane Sibley

Kathy Schellens is a superstar! She goes above and beyond and really cares about her clients. Kathy's experience and savvy is extremely valuable in today's competitive market. We are very happy with the result Kathy obtained for us and are confident we have the best agent in the area.

Jason Simms

Kathy Schellens did a 100% excellent job for selling our family property at 114 Walkley Hill Road, Haddam, CT from the estate. The property has an 18 room "Victorian" house on 9 acres of land that is best suited to a specialty buyer having the substantial funds needed for updating the house. Kathy did superbly well overcoming all of the details and delays from the buyer's lender in an excellent professional manner, Kathy has handled other property transactions for us in prior years and in the process of handling another property as a buyer's agent for Jane Sibley. Kathy is a perfect person for selling high value properties of which there are many in the lower Connecticut Valley area. You won't find anyone who works harder to get a deal done! Take good care of her! Jon Sibley Higganum, CT 06441

We worked with Kathy Schellens and she was terrific. Extremely responsive, knowledgeable and accommodating, and always had our best interests in mind. I’ve already recommended her to a friend.

Benjamin & Emily Brewer

Kathleen (Kathy) Schellens is an exceptional person to have on your side and on your team. She brings to the table a wealth of realtor experience that is eclipsed only by her deep and profound concern for the needs of the people and families she represents. I could not imagine finding another realtor that could have done as exceptional of a job helping me keep my family safe and push hard to close on my house. She has my strongest recommendation to assist anyone with finding their dream home.

Justin-Joaquin & Alizabeth Tapay

Kathy Schellens came recommended to me by a friend. I would recommend her to all my friends. She’s professional, knowledgeable and helped me through a trying time selling my house.She’s respectful of feelings, smoothly helping me over the bumps that comes with selling a family home. Always responds to calls and texts quickly even when on vacation. Sotheby’s is lucky to have her. Highly recommend the company and Kathy.

Norma Murphy

It is all due to Kathy Schellens! When we moved to town 17 years ago, we knew it would not be our last move. Kathy sold us our home. She was patient , very patient (I wanted a home with character, and my husband wanted a home that was updated). Time flew by, it was time to sell and there was absolutely no question as to whom our Agent would be. The Agency didn't matter it was all about having Kathy represent us. Her knowledge and experience brought us to closing last week with the price we wanted for our home. SHE IS AWESOME! We are Team Kathy Schellens

David & Christine Rodriquez

Kathy Schellens is the consummate professional! She went out of her way in too many ways to count to make our house purchase and move less stressful. She is extremely knowledgeable, energetic, fun, intelligent...excellent. Her familiarity with the area, federal and state regulations, local protocols and esoteric bits of knowledge only a season professional would have made this transaction a pleasure. We cannot recommend her highly enough. John and Lucy Duddy
