Katie Severance is a highly experienced and recognized Realtor who looks at each seller and buyer as a unique client with very specific needs.  Born and raised in Montclair, New Jersey, she has a deep knowledge of the entire county, and a historical perspective that comes from family roots that go back to the 1960’s.  She represents buyers and sellers in all of suburban Essex County, and parts of Passaic County.

Her philosophy for BuyersMy buyers have an edge. If we find the right house at the right price and they make a good, strong investment today, I know they will do well when they call me for the re-sale years from now.” Katie’s priority is to make her buyers keenly aware of local values. That means exposing them to as much inventory as possible and specifically demonstrating how to determine value – locally.

Her philosophy for SellersExperience makes all the difference.  Marketing a home requires dozens if skills.  If you want top dollar, you need an agent who possesses every single one of them.

Katie is a very well-known and respected listing agent, primarily for her end result – getting top dollar.  But the hallmark of her brand – the reason she is so often referred –  is how strongly she manages the entire process.  Among her many skills are: organizing and staging, top-tier photography, adept pricing, powerful marketing, expert negotiating, and always recognizing that every house has a story to tell that enhances its value.  Tapping into that story is a critical part of the process.

Katie attended Montclair High School and graduated from Fairfield University, in CT, with a BA in Political Science. She currently resides in Montclair with her husband and son. She is very involved in the public school district, local charities and is an active volunteer/supporter of local causes.
