MKE With Kids is proud to partner with this innovative, women-owned local business to give away three 'tiny houses' that your kids will love. These coloring playhouses are made from durable pine cardboard and make the perfect forts. To enter, head to our Facebook and Instagram page.
The Origin Story
Broker Owner, Katie Corcoran got her real estate license at 25 and she's never looked back. But after years of working with a top producing team at a nationwide company (while juggling two little ones at home), and later at a local boutique firm as a solo agent (and her husband as the stay-at-home-parent), she started to see that something was missing from the customer experience.
In 2019, she set out on her own to provide savvy buyers with the HGTV-esque experience they wanted by including staging and styling services, beautiful photography, and exceptional marketing. She knew from experience that this approach would lead to more showings, less days on market, and home sales at a premium price.
(She turned out to be right. Corcoran Realty & Co. is now ranked the city's #1 New Local Brokerage.)
Fast forward to the fall of 2019, through another decade of local real estate adventures. Corcoran Realty & Co. and sister company, Style Space, launched their innovative Real Estate Model in a new warehouse space in Glendale.
Today, it's a stylish meeting space used for client meetings, consults, and closings. The warehouse is filled to the brim with furniture and home accessories. Upstairs, you’ll find a team of six working away in a bright and open concept office loft.
A New Kind of Realtor
It's more than styling and photography that has made them the city's leading new local brokerage, Katie says. "It is our keen negotiation skills, industry knowledge, relationships and home anatomy expertise that gets our clients to closing day.”
Katie says she wants to change the public persona of what a realtor is. She sees a realtor as someone who is helping a family navigate through an intense emotional and financial experience, and she values compassion, patience, and compromise in her approach.
“Our team aims to provide top notch service, superb real estate aptitude and a trusted companion for each client.”
And, she says, it helps to offer some goodies. Their Seller clients receive a complimentary light fixture and a Showing Survival Kit to keep their house sparkling during showings. (Yes, please!)
