ABOUT ME

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 #26 in the nation and #1 in Kansas City for the last 28 years 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.
