Kathy Hollingshead

    Kathy Hollingshead

    I have been a licensed real estate agent in the states of Idaho and Washington since 2005.

    My husband & I have been investing in real estate since we married in 1976. We have own homes and rental property during our time in California and now here in Idaho.

    I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree at Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo, CA in 1974. Upon the move to Idaho in 1986, we added to our family, now 3 adult children with spouses, and five grandchildren. Became involved in volunteer work and ended up being the president of PTA, LIFE, a local school foundation and the Lewiston Service League. I'm now treasurer for a P.E.O. group and a member of Seaport Quilters' Guild.

    My work experience started in retail, moved to the loan servicing arena. In Idaho, I started a sewing business, then added a "home-based" clothing sales. In the early 2000's went back to banking, then some property management. State of Washington requires a real estate license for property management. I was drawn to the business so earned an Idaho license and joined the brokerage at Century 21 Price Right in order to sell real estate.

    I enjoy helping my clients put the pieces of the real estate puzzle together, viewing homes, obtaining the loan, then closing the transaction. Let my experience work for you.

    My Client Testimonials

    Kathy is fantastic, she has helped me and my family several times, she is a great asset to your company and we will be using her again if we come to a situation we need to buy or sell again ~ Norm Van Ness Jr, Lewiston idaho
    Kathy was a joy to work with. She was very friendly and very knowledgeable. She was able to make things happen for us very quickly and efficiently. She was also able to respond very quickly to any and all of our questions/ concerns and was able to get us answers better than ever expected. We love her and her contribution to our family and our future. We would not be where we are now, in a beautiful happy home without her. She is super woman ! Thank you so much for everything! ~ Shaleigh and Brad- Lewiston ID
    Kathy was excellent in all areas and have since recommended her to others. Very understanding of my needs. Prompt and courteous. Best personal level of service ever!!!! Didn't need to interface with anyone else in office as Kathy was extremely attentive to ALL my needs. ~ Rochelle Crane. Lewiston, Idaho
    I knew long before we sold our home and downsized to a smaller home in the area that I would use Kathy Hollingshead as my realtor. Having known her through many civic clubs, I knew her to be responsible and level headed.Selling a home and buying a new one is a large and scary prospect and Kathy made this easy for us. Although we had a tight market and many crazy things happen that neither of us had any control over, she smoothed the way to our new home. She is a calm and sincere person. I just trusted her to do what was best for us and she delivered. We are so happy. I can't imagine using anyone else in the valley. ~ Kim haverfield, Lewiston, Idaho
    Kathy Hollingshead is such a great realtor. She was so patient with my husband throughout our sale. He is very hard of hearing and this makes explaining things to him difficult, on top of the fact that he hates change. Kathy was able to deal with him so well and I can't say enough good about her. She made the process easy. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She even sold my younger sister a home a few months later and will likely sell my remaining sister a house in the next year! If selling or buying a home is a daunting process for you, please use Kathy Hollingshead. ~ kim haverfield, lewiston, idaho
    We were first time sellers and didn't know where to start. Kathy Hollingshead was a godsend. She was very patient with us on how the process worked.

    Have worked with Kathy many times. She always does a hood job for me. ~ Judy Foust 2847 24th St. Clarkston, Wa
    Kathy Hollingshead worked closely with me during the whole process of selling my father's house in Clarkston. She understood the market very well, worked around an estate sale and sold the house by the end of the first week on the market. She kept me informed throughout the process and was always available to answer questions even though most of the communications were long distance due to my remote location in Portland. ~ Laura Kemp, Portland OR
    I met Kathy at an open house she held, and liked that she was warm, friendly, and considerate, but not at all pushy. When I asked a question about the house she was showing, she quickly tracked down the answer for me, even following up with city records, which I greatly appreciated. Although I was not ultimately interested in the house she was showing, I liked her so well that I chose to have her help me as a buyer's agent. I really enjoyed working with Kathy. She knows the market, understood the type of house I was looking for, and was able to alert me to opportunities as soon as they came up (including the house I purchased). She was patient, knowledgeable, and somebody I trusted completely. A very big thank you to Kathy for all her help. ~ Ashley Adams, Clarkston
    Kathy Hollingshead's knowledge of the area and the people who are looking to buy in this specific area was important to me. ~ Karen Mackay - 1016 Prospect Avenue - Lewiston, Idaho
    Kathy is a fantastic agent to work with, she even worked on offers while on vacation! ~ Katie Hollingshead, Lewiston Id
    Kathy helped in more waus than just listing and advertising. Sje gave good counsel, assisted with physical preparations. Coordinated work to be done and most important to me, encouraged me when I was discouraged. ~ Cindy Carver Juliaetta,
    We worked out of town and had very limited time in the area. Kathy went above and beyond to fit our needs and to keep us comfortable at all times. She is easy to communicate with and answers and returns calls. She is extremely well versed in all the areas of the real estate business and I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing a home. She is not pushy, she is confident in digging deep to find what will interests you in the home based on your needs and requirements. She finds listings in your price range and comparable homes as well along with gathering all details for property location, parks, recreation and even nice places for entertainment. She is orginized snd gave us packets for each home with all we needed and she was able to show homes at times that worked for us. She found me and my family the most perfect home ever and we couldnt say more about Kathy and Century 21. We are just in all pleased to work with this company! ~ Tyrell Kinyon
    I really felt like Kathy and Bev worked for me to make a home happen for me, and looked out for my best interest. Times I had no idea and they went ahead and made things happens to benefit me over all parties interest. ~ Timothy Ferbrache, Lewiston Id
    My husband and I worked with Kathy Hollingshead for 2 + years. She was very patient with us, drove us all over nez perce county and beyond. She showed us properties that she knew we'd like and need. E were in another state and came into Idaho 4 or 5 times in those years. Being far away, Kathy always contacted us promptly either with phone calls or emails. Kathy is very helpful and knowlegable, professional and kind and she will go out of her way to get you the right home. ~ Laura Deshler: Lenore
    The biggest reason that this was successful, in a nutshell, It was her knowledge of the house that she knew was what we needed and wanted even though we thought other factors would make it NOT be the ONE. We were in the neighborhood, She suggested that we just take a look. That's literally all it took because it was the ONE after all and we are so Glad we took that Look, while we're in the neighborhood. ~ Tom and Jacci Wooten, Clarkston, WA
    Enjoyed working with Kathy. ~ Jim Uhlman
    Kathy sold our house in less than two weeks! She made herself available whenever necessary and was easy to contact. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. It was a pleasure to work with her. We have moved away from the area but would highly recommend Kathy to our local friends and family in need of a broker. Thank you, Kathy! ~ Arthur family, Oregon
    All went very smoothly and very timely. Excellent work by Kathy. Kathy went above and beyond in helping me with the purchase of my new home. Certainly will recommend her to others. ~ Joyce Stapleton, Lewiston
    Kathy is an amazing lady. I have known her for 10 years. Even when I moved out of state she kept in touch. Always goes the extra mile and is not greedy. Really cares about your needs. ~ Megan Snyder and Kenton Faulkner
    Kathy Hollingshed was an excellent realtor. She was professional, dependable, and brought her experience and energy to the sale. Highly recommended! ~ Ruth Rainey
    Kathy was very quick at getting the details together in preparation for the sale of my home. She conducted several open houses to assist in selling my home timely. She made recommendations on asking prices to further assist in the sale of my home. After a month of my home being on the market, my family and I moved across the country. Kathy utilized convenient online resources to sign documents so I would not have to be there in order to sell my home. She provided regular lawn maintenance to keep the curb appeal up. Kathy was my agent when I purchased this home and she exceeded my expectations with the sale of my home. Kathy is Friendly, courteous and knowledgable. A great agent for both searching for and selling a home. ~ Becky Butler, VT
    Kathy was a great realtor who was so patient with us and was constantly finding new listings to show us. She helped us find the perfect house for our oldest daughter to live in while attending LCSC. Thank you Kathy ~ Chad Devore, Rathdrum, Idaho
    I had gone to an open house Kathy Hollingshead had, was impressed with her knowledge and she was a super nice person. I know Kathy did not make hardly any money from the sale of the home I bought. But, I felt she treated me with the same respect she would treat the person buying a million dollar home. She was very professional and thorough and made my home buying experience enjoyable ~ Karen Collier, Clarkston
    This lady is #1 in our books. What she had to deal with, in working with us, should make her eligible for an award that has yet to be designed. Thanks, Kathy ~ Dean & Joann Custer, You know where to find us, Kathy
    I choose Kathy Hollingshead for my realtor because she had helped me purchase my previous house several years ago. During my current purchase, Kathy kept in contact with me during this long process of a short-sale. Kathy has a lot of experience in real estate and when she is showing you a home, she provides valuable information and suggestions about how to improve the property as well as pointing out things to consider that I may not have thought of. Kathy's experience was so appreciated and she was an excellent advocate for me in purchasing my new property. She actually found me my "dream house!" I would highly recommend Kathy Hollingshead if you want an agent with experience, determination and fortitude to help you get the best property! She's awesome! ~ Teri Rainey, Lewiston
    We enjoyed working with Kathy Hollingshead. She was very knowledgeable, kind, and responded to any of our needs in a timely manner. She made our entire process smoother. ~ The Tischlers, Lewiston, Idaho.
    Kathy rocks! ~ Bruce & Angela
    Kathy is "our" kind of agent. She was not pushy, is knowledgeable and listens. ~ Bill & Sharon Ledbetter
    Kathy goes above and beyond for her clients and handled even the most frustrating aspects of my home purchase with grace and professionalism. Kathy truly cares about the success of her clients in finding the perfect home for them and works to make sure the entire transaction is completed smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. ~ Katie Ostenson
    She was recommended by residents of the area. Other people told us that Kathy was great to work with. She was wonderful in call backs and answering questions. Kathy Hollingshead was a great help as I was working on line from out of state. She went out of her way to check things that I couldn't tell from pictures and text. When my son drove to the location to check the property out for me she was most helpful and courteous! When I arrived to take the walk through she told me where to find a good motel! I would most certainly recommend her to friends and family. Everyone we spoke to was great as in delivering messages when phone or emails didn't work. ~ Barbara Butler Kamiah, Idaho
    Kathy was the only agent to show us house before we were pre-qualified. Which was important to start looking early. She got back to us right away and showed us many houses even with our time restrictions, due to my husband work schedule. Would recommend Kathy to all our friends or family looking to buy or sell. ~ Steven & Kathy Gilbert
    A wonderful person. Enjoy being around Kathy. As long as I have known Kathy She has been all the above. ~ Theo Dygert Juliaetta
    The process of buying a home has been complicated for me along the way due to my own circumstances and Kathy Hollingshead has been patient and "took the helm" at times to help me navigate through difficult waters. When I asked for help, she offered it, but was always respectful of my own preferences. There were many times when my schedule was a bit strange and she was able to always meet me when I was available. I felt respected and understood throughout this long journey. When I was discouraged, she always had positive and encouraging words to offer. I really appreciated her in this experience and will be seeking her when I need further realtor assistance. ~ Esther Pfeifer, Clarkston, WA
    Kathy was great. She answered all our questions quickly and correctly,when a panic situation on my part arose she made it easy to understand what the solution was. After a few houses we felt like we had known her as a friend for much longer then our real acquaintance, She made this the most pleasant real-estate dealing I have ever had. ~ Leroy Curry
