“Kathy Koehler and her team of agents, along with Kristin Kirk sold our home in one week with a full price offer!  Kathy Koehler told us that she would shop the contract and she did!  Plus she staged the house and held our hand every step of the way since it had been a long time since we had sold a property!  We highly recommend Kathy Koehler and her team for your real estate needs, to make it an over the top experience and a seamless transaction.  She was a shining example of what the best agent should be!”
-Clarence Lierz

“Our experience with The Koehler Bortnick Team was first class and I would highly recommend them to any of our friends and family. We needed help to sell a 5,000 square foot home that needed all new interior painting and that we had only owned for two months. Kathy sent us her designer and painter  who worked together to give the house an updated, fresh appeal. From the team work of the design people to her office staff, we were so impressed with how flawlessly every step of the process was executed and with very little time required of myself or my husband. Everyone we worked with was so experienced and we really felt like we could trust the team. We sold the home in four days for more than we had paid for it, and even had a backup offer! You just can’t go wrong with Kathy Koehler and her entire team. We are so grateful to have been able to work with them.”
– Erin Baxter

“KK is the best. In 2016, KK and Heather Bortnick sold my home in Brookside barely before it went on the market and for list price–I was thrilled. It was a no-brainer to work with KK again when it came time for my fiance’ to sell his house. She, Jeff Arrington and her Concierge Team were  absolutely on-point with every piece of advice they gave us–and in a very competitive market, sold his house in exactly the time frame we needed–and at a price where we were comfortable. While we are excited to stay in our new home (which Jeff Arrington worked tirelessly to find for us) for many years to come, we will absolutely reach out to KK, Jeff and Koehler Bortnick’s amazing Concierge Team when we look to buy or sell in the future!”
-Lisa Epps

“Kathy Koehler sold our home in 4 days. They got us 98% of list price. Kathy Koehler follows up on every detail. Any time we called her, she got the job done! Their CEO Lisa Brewer was organized and detailed every step of the way. Kathy and Lisa made the home selling process stress free and easy! We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
-Tom Heffron

“As a developer of over 4,000 upscale homesites over the last 25 years in the metropolitan Kansas City area we can select from any one of 10,000 real estate agents in the area to represent our new home communities. We selected Kathy Koehler over 5 years ago and have never regretted our decision.  She has repeatedly demonstrated integrity, professionalism and provided excellent customer service for our homebuyers.”
-Mark Simpson

“Our experience with Kathy Koehler is worth sharing. She and her team worked materfully as soon as we met about our home sale. They were quick on responses and thorough with answers. We are pleased to have worked with them and recommend Kathy and her team to anyone in the market to sell a home.”
-Mindy Corporon

“We want to thank you and your team for the excellent handling in the selling of our home. We put the house on the market on October 10th and by December 5th, we were packed and gone to New York. This would not have happened without your professional team. From the advertising to the positive outlook stemming from all the people we were involved with made all of this possible. And to top it off, the negotiated price was a positive for both us and the buyer. Thank you again and we will be referring your team to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home.”
– Jim and Sue Bernbeck

“Selling your home can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life unless you select the most powerful team that has the knowledge & ability to get results..After struggling over a year with showings & no results we found Kathy Koehler and The Koehler Bortnick Team and all of our fears soon went away. We were so impressed with this team from the very moment they stepped into our home. They WOWED us instantly with their passion, knowledge & professionalism. We were confident that they would be the team to sell our home and they did just that VERY QUICKLY. Within a week of our sign going up we had our first contract. We were so grateful & delighted that we gave three other referrals to this team and they turned around and sold their homes within a week also. The Koehler Bortnick Team knows how to get results… AND VERY FAST”
– Vicki Cohoon

“Kathy Koehler is a true professional who negotiates exceptionally well and addresses inspection issues in a common sense, straight forward manner. Kathy is the only reason we listed with KB Sells and Reece Nichols of Leawood. We love her enthusiasm, work ethic, positive attitude and tenacity. We have recommended her to our friends and neighbors.”
– Bob and Rhonda Bremer

“I was stunned by how well the sale of our home went. Thank you so much to Kathy Koehler and the whole team for making this as easy (and profitable) as possible!”
– Bill Brower

“Kathy Koehler sold our house in 9 days to the first set of buyers. The other agent had our house listed and could not overcome objections. Kathy gave us a list of things to do–we did everything she said and she closed the deal. Kathy is a closer! Her aggressiveness and looking at every challenge as opportunity makes her the best agent we ever had. Kathy also sold my mother’s property in the first week on the market for over list price! If you want to get your home sold fast you want Kathy Koehler and The Koehler Bortnick Team.”
– Aaron & Meghan Harte

“Kathy Koehler with the Koehler Bortnick Team put our house at 4833 W 162nd Street in the Wilderness on the market and sold it in 1 day for over the list price. Because of their professionalism, attention to detail and take charge attitude, they took what we thought would be a stressful situation and made it seamless. During inspections, they overcame objections when the buyers wanted a new roof and all was settled without having to give a roof or money. We would tell anyone that wanted to buy or sell a house, that they should only use Kathy with the Koehler Bortnick Team.”
– Tim and Laura Geary

“I enjoyed working with Kathy. She is extremely knowledgeable and in-tune with the Kansas City metro real estate climate. Kathy provided candid feedback regarding our home showings and adjusted course accordingly to successful market our house. Our home sold in approximately 10 weeks and we were pleased with her ongoing assistance during the negotiation process and the finals sales result. I would highly recommend Kathy to our family and friends.”
-Len Losen

My career in sales started at the mere age of 16 years old, where I went door-to-door selling vacuum cleaners. With over 35 years of real estate experience and even more sales experience, no other real estate agent will provide you with the strongest market knowledge, negotiation skills and top-notch marketing than The Koehler Bortnick Team. Born and raised a California girl, I came to Kansas City in 1982 and have been here ever since—sharing a wonderful life with my late husband Charlie Koehler, daughters Heather Bortnick, Amber Heineman and my four grandchildren, Elinor, Katherine, Joe and Charlie.

I was a true pioneer in the real estate business, becoming the first real estate agent in Kansas City to start a team. As a top-ranked exclusive listing agent, I have made it my mission to represent and protect my sellers and their properties every step of the way. No one can out-negotiate me from getting you top-dollar for your home. At my expense, a stager will come to your home to make it picture-ready for your professional photography shoot. More than 96% of buyers choose to view homes online, and we make it a priority to provide our clients with superior marketing. Being ranked the #26 residential real estate team in the nation gives me more exposure to out-of-town buyers than any other Kansas City real estate agent.

When it comes to buying, I have over 45 buyers agents that I have personally trained and mentored. They are the best at what they do and can provide you with top-notch negotiating skills, the ability to get you into homes first, and expert knowledge. We find the best home, in the best location, at the best possible price. The team consists of a full-time office staff of 8 employees and more than 45 agent specialists in five ReeceNichols office locations: Leawood, Country Club Plaza, Lee’s Summit, Cedar Creek and the Northland.

By achieving such success, our team feels deeply committed to giving back to the community. With a “just say yes” attitude, we have helped raise thousands of dollars for multiple organizations. Kathy also dedicates her time to giving motivational speeches. As a breast cancer survivor, she had the opportunity to speak at the opening ceremony of the Avon Walk along with several other cancer ambassadors speaking engagements. Furthermore, she’s enjoyed giving motivational speeches to different colleges and businesses on the best ways to increase business/sales.

With top notch marketing and constant communication, The Koehler Bortnick Team provides every client with top performance and customer satisfaction. It is our goal to make buying and selling a home (one of the largest investments in life) a smooth, satisfying, and successful transaction with Honesty, Exposure, Results.

I look forward to showing you the Koehler Bortnick Team Difference. Contact me TODAY to find out more about how I can help you! 913.488.3639
