Buying, selling, or investing in real estate? I have nearly 20 years of sales and marketing experience to help you make the right decisions about your purchase or sale. As a native Oregonian, I absolutely love introducing my hometown to my clients who are relocating here from outside the area. I also have exceptional resources to assist my clients who are relocating from Oregon to another state or country.


I am an organized, disciplined professional who excels at time management and multitasking. My clients benefit from my proven, effective negotiation skills. With your best interests in mind, I can help craft the perfect contract that results in wins for all sides. My commitment to every client is to provide impeccable service, expert advice, neighborhood insights, and current market statistics to equip you to confidently achieve your goals. 


When it comes to marketing listings for my sellers, I will not rest until I find the right buyer for your home. Making it work using both new marketing techniques and time-tested sales strategies is my passion. I combine internet marketing, social media, grassroots door-knocking, direct mail campaigns, face-to-face connections, and decades of community and industry connections to successfully find a committed, qualified buyer for your property. 


Let’s talk about your goals and how I can help you achieve them.

 

More about Kat:
After graduating from the University of California–Santa Barbara with a degree in sociology and global studies, Kat Granum returned to Portland in 2005 and bought her first home in the Bethany neighborhood of NW Portland, where she lived for seven years. Later, Kat and her family relocated south to her childhood neighborhood in Wilsonville where she now lives with her husband, Sean, their daughters Paige and Hayley, and their son Jackson. 


In her leisure time, Kat enjoys being with family, running, cycling, cooking, connecting with old friends, making new ones, and exploring Portland and the Pacific Northwest.

 

Designations  

Hasson Relocation, Masters Circle

My new nickname for our realtor, is Kat "the Regulator" Granum! As many of you in the Portland area know, this market is nuts! It's competative, and people are offering so much above asking! Kat was positive through it all, and reminded us that our dream house would find us. As first time home buyers I had no idea what to expect. And when things went awry, she stayed calm, made calls & sent emails quickly to resolve any issues in a timely manner. I would recommend Kat to ANYONE in this housing game, you won't be sorry.

— Desiree

We couldn't be happier with Kat! She made our home buying experience awesome and was so helpful and professional. Kat was always available for questions and was quick to return phone calls and emails. She was always looking out for our best interests and negotiated a great deal for us in a hot market. We couldn't be more pleased with our buying experience. We don't plan on moving again anytime soon, but if we did, we would call Kat in a heartbeat. Kat is an excellent realtor- we highly recommend her!!

— Natalie

Kat is the hardest working agent! She is always available and helped us navigate some pretty tricky negotiations. Thanks for selling our home fast in this crazy market and helping us land our dream home in time for the holidays.

— Lyndsay & Rick

"Kat was absolutely amazing! I felt I had a partner from day one in this journey...and I have no doubt Kat's dedication, professionalism and knowledge made all the difference! I am so grateful for her help and guidance...and feel so fortunate she was my realtor."

— Donna

Thanks Kat, for all your work in selling my condo last spring. There was another unit like mine, that came on the market just as we closed that took more than six months to sell, and it sold for slightly less than mine. Your advice to be the first listing really paid off, as did your heroic efforts in getting the place sold. I plan to keep renting for awhile longer but I'm always happy to tell others about you. Very best wishes.

— Gail McMurchie

My experience with Kat was wonderful! Kat was so professional, warm and welcoming. She was so incredibly organized when showing us homes and I loved that she didn’t just show us homes but actually took the time to listen to us and to observe our reactions to things. She used a ranking method that was super helpful for us to be able to hone in on what we really liked and didn’t like. I never felt the pressure to move forward with any home. When I asked to see properties at the last minute, she somehow found the time to show me, which I find incredible. Her communication was awesome! Any time that I needed anything she got back to me within an hour or got back to me to say when she would get back to me. In working with Kat, it made me realize what a bad experience that I had with my realtor who helped me purchase our first home. The differences really stood out. I love how professional, organized and thorough she has been. I also really appreciated her professional opinion when my husband and I were divided on homes. It helped us to understand by hearing from her experience. Even now that I have bought my home, Kat is still helping us answer a few lingering questions. I love our new home and have no immediate plans to move but if we should ever want too, I would reach out to Hasson and more importantly Kat again.

If anyone is looking to invest in one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. Call Kat Granum. She just got my neighbor an amazing deal on a house and I am jealous

— David

We had such a great time working with you Kat! You made our first home buying experience smooth sailing.

— Sara & Reid

You are so good at what you do!!! Thank YOU for helping us with our home! Everyone should use you as a realtor!!!

— Carrie

You are a fabulous Realtor and an even better person! I'm blown away!!

— Mark

Kat did an excellent job helping me purchase a home for my mother. I had a very tight budget and specific needs that made the search challenging. I had worked with several other realtors that did nothing more than add me to an automated email list of newly listed properties. Kat took the time to meet with me in person and truly understand my needs in a new home. She found several properties that fit my requirements, worked with the HOA to ensure the property would be a good fit for my mother, helped negotiate repairs with the sellers, and even helped chase down missing mail keys weeks after closing. I recommend Kat to anyone I know looking to sell or buy a home and plan to use her in the future for the purchase of my own home.

— Mera

Kat is the best realtor I've ever worked with. She's very honest, professional, always there for you! Thank you Kat for making my life less stressful. She helped me sell my condo within a short period of time and help me moved into my dream home. I'm truly impressed with her dedication and work ethic!

— Christy & Taylor

Kat is ethical and thorough and genuinely cares and fights for her clients! She knows the business and is very good at her job.

— Carrie

Hi Kat, I just want to stop by and say how much I appreciate you. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job of selling my condo and also get us our dream home! You are truly the best at what you do. I've work with multiple reators in the past and no one compare to you. Thanks again, I feel like I cant thank you enough. Definitely stressfree having you as my realtor!

— Taylor

Thank you so much for helping guide us into this next chapter of our lives. You were patient, persistent, and of course incredibly pleasant to work with.

"As a first time homebuyer, I was completely overwhelmed by the home buying process, especially searching Zillow and Redfin over the last few months on my own. Kat was able to show more homes within my budget and was so patient answering all my questions while guiding me through the process. Out of sheer luck, we found a home that was absolutely perfect for me. Kat worked with the sellers agent to land the sale under $300k (which in this market is nothing short of magic!), and ensure all the paperwork was completed in a timely manner so I could close on time. I am so appreciative of Kat's calm demeanor, fun personality, and timely responses to all my inquiries! Thank you Kat for making my first home a reality!"

"As a first-time home-buyers, this whole process was completely new to me and my partner: we didn't know how anything works, what to look for, how to determine the value of a home, how offers work – but thankfully Kat made it extremely easy from day one. She walked through how everything works, patiently answered all of our questions, was responsive and quick to get us appointments, gave us tips on what to look out for, helped us craft competitive offers, constantly gave us the inside scoop, landed us a beautiful home within our budget, and most importantly made it all feel human: she's warm, empathetic, and didn't rush us at all or make us feel uneasy, ever. It's great to have someone like that guiding you through such a big process. Thank you Kat!!"

"My husband and I bought our first home six years ago and used Kat Granum as our realtor. Over the years, she maintained our relationship, sent thoughtful care packages for special holidays, and stayed in touch so when it was time to sell our house there was no question who we would use for our realtor. Selling our house was a breeze- she was supportive and helped in that process immensely. The tricky part however, was finding a new home in this time with the market the way it is. Kat didn't take no for an answer, and found creative ways to get us our dream house! I'm so thankful to have her by our side, and apart of our story."

"Kat is an amazing real estate broker! This was our third transaction with her. She has helped us with purchasing two homes and selling one. Each time she has been very professional and handled anything that came up quickly and in some cases before we even reached out to her. Her negotiation skills are next level! On the two purchases she helped us with, our offers were accepted on the first house (one of them being in this HOT sellers market). On the sale of our house, she knew exactly how to prep and price our home for the most interest (getting over 45 showings and many offers) and she somehow convinced the appraiser to see the value of our home for much higher than we expected. We will not consider another agent for as long as Kat is available to us because in three home transactions we have been 110% satisfied with the results. She’s the best."

Kat is very organized, responsive, and knowledgable about the Portland metro area. She knows exactly what it takes to compete in this competitive real estate market! I'm sure she was working with many clients as the same time as she was working with us, but she gave us complete attention as if we were her only clients. She promptly responded to questions, submitted offers, and took as much off of our "plates" so we could focus on our jobs and life. She was a perfect partner in our buying and selling process."

"I moved here from out of state and was referred by a friend to work with Kat. Going with that suggestion was the best move I could have possibly made going into the Portland market. Since Day 1, Kat was invested in our move, process, and gave a ton of guidance and support.

The market here is COMPETITIVE, but if you have someone knowledgeable, knows other agents, and is TRUSTED by other agents - like Kat is - the process went a whole lot better than I've heard it's gone for others. Any house we toured that had a rep in the business, they knew Kat. To me, that was reassuring because she had a great reputation around the community.

One other thing I appreciated while moving from out of state was she had a ton of recommendations. She helped set us up with agents in Texas to sell my house (I needed a "Texas" Kat). I also needed things like handymen, garage door installer, trusted landscaper, etc. and all of her recommendations have been phenomenal. She also suggested local mortgage companies to work with, both of which I really liked (it was so hard to choose!).

Overall, she went above and beyond. The best part was she listened to our needs, provided great results, got us the house of our dreams. Her honesty and realistic perspective, all while being positive and upbeat, made this process so much smoother.

A home is a huge purchase, you need to work with someone trusted and knows the community. I wouldn't work with anyone else and will continue to recommend her to locals."
