About Kathy Young
While raising her family, alongside her husband Bob, Kathy sold real estate from 1977 to 1991 (14 years), after which she left to pursue a career in public service. Kathy obtained a master’s degree from U of M – Ann Arbor, with a major in public policy & planning and a minor in social welfare administration. She worked in the public service arena as VP of Program Planning, Design, and Development. As a member of the Leadership Team, Kathy designed systems at the macro, mezzo, and micro levels, developed programs, and created infrastructures to ensure efficiency, effectiveness, and satisfaction for the respective funders and providers of services to persons with disabilities, and their families. After this position for many years, Kathy retired in 2015. After just one year, in June of 2016, she returned to the workforce, restoring her real estate license from the State of MI.
Kathy has since shared on many occasions how pleased she is to have joined REMAX Platinum, located in Brighton. She incorporates her fine-turned project management approach to each of her real estate transactions, as well as, her vast knowledge of business, and her ability to problem solve, think out-of–the box, generate innovative ideas, and her proven approach to accomplish the objectives and meeting the expected deliverables.
Kathy moved from their family home, located in Commerce Township area, shortly after the unexpected and early death of her husband Bob, and has been a resident of Livingston County since 2002. She resides in Genoa Township. Working with buyers and sellers has become a major fabric of her life. She also enjoys traveling (yes, she makes herself available –LOL) , attending local concerts, and spending time with family and friends.
I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT WORKING WITH BUYERS AND SELLERS, I REALLY AM!
With so many real estate agents to choose from, I deeply value those individuals who place their trust and confidence in me. I view it as a real privilege to serve them.
While it is true, financial considerations are of upmost importance in any real estate transaction, it is only one side of the story. Buying and/or selling homes often represents change in one’s situation, or a milestone in one’s life.
I promise…whatever the reason for the purchase or sale, YOUR goals become my goals. I am committed to ensuring a good outcome. I will work hard to get you the best price, in least amount of time, and on your timetable. I will partner with you and I will remain respectful of your motivation for buying or selling:
