Kate Blickenstaff works as a realtor with her mother, Jane, in the Lynchburg, VA area. I cannot say enough how fortunate that is for me. After my father died in early December, I was responsible for his estate and the sale of his home of many years. Kate and Jane were recommended to me by several friends. At a difficult time for our family, they stepped in, provided their expertise in setting the price and getting the home ready to sell and then remarkably and seamlessly completed the sale the first week of February. I cannot say enough about the outstanding job Kate and Jane did. They more than earned their commission, and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any kind of real estate transaction. Thank you, Kate and Jane!

Kate did a phenomenal job pinpointing exactly what we wanted in a home and helping us find it. She was always on top of the latest listings and made sure we were the first to see homes going on the market. I’d give her my highest recommendation to anyone looking for a realtor.

Kate was wonderful to work with, professional, and is very knowledgeable about Lynchburg realty. She not only helped us in the buying process but also to sell our current house in record time. The Blickenstaff team have so many resources that assisted us throughout the closing process and made the whole experience flow seamlessly. We are so grateful to Kate for going above and beyond our expectations!

Finally, our house sold once it was listed with Kate. We appreciated that she was willing to use print advertising. Then we decided to purchase an investment property so we turned to her again. She is willing to show you any homes you want to see, and she negotiated well on our behalf.

Jane and Kate Blickenstaff and Company were first class all the way and then some. I was an enquiring walk-in off the street pondering on moving to Lynchburg my step-father’s ole hometown. The first day I met Jane and Kate mother and daughter they welcomed me with open arms. After two visits, they convinced and inspired me into moving into the Burg. Jane, Kate, and Company were Compassionate and Understanding towards my budget and my needs. The house they found for me is truly a fit to a tee and being someone who is 6’6″ coming from12 acres ; they convinced me into realizing that smaller is better so that I can concentrate on people, places, and experiences.

They made me feel at home in Lynchburg. I am glad to be a neighbor.

My husband and I had never purchased a home before, but Kate made the process simple and enjoyable! She is one of the most professional people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her extensive knowledge of Lynchburg and surrounding area was an invaluable asset while searching for our dream home. We would recommend Kate to anyone looking for a home, especially first time homebuyers. Her fun and welcoming personality made shopping for a home much less stressful than it could have been. We are forever grateful for Kate and we hope you love her as much as we do!

Kate is hands down an EXCELLENT realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and provides top notch customer service. Throughout our experience in purchasing our home she was always very responsive and very pleasant to work with in all aspects of our buying experience. She is also terrific at helping your find houses outside of the normal websites! We would highly recommend Kate to anyone buying or selling a home and look forward to our next purchase with her. Thank you Kate for an amazing home buying experience!

We’ve worked with a half dozen realtors over the years, and Kate is truly the best! She was patient with us as we looked at many houses and looked at several of them multiple times. She was quick and responsive, not pushy yet provided feedback during the offering and negotiation phases, and she’s the first realtor I ever felt like was actually an advocate for us and on our side! Would absolutely use her again!

- Jennifer E.

Kate did an incredible job with helping us to find the right house. She is very kind, considerate, and respectful of your time. She goes above and beyond to help you! We came directly to Blickenstaff Realty from a bad experience with a previous realtor, and it was a complete 180! We not only received a realtor, but a friend! 🙂 In addition, my parents have used the Blickenstaffs since we moved here 1999, and refuse to work with anyone else! You will not regret it! Best in Lynchburg!

They have a network of resources to navigate any hiccups that may arise. Hands down one of Lynchburg’s absolute best resources! So thankful to Kate and the entire Blickenstaff team for a wonderful purchase and closing.
