Print Agent Bio

A Little About Me:

I've been a Real Estate Broker since 2004 and have been at Hasson Company, Realtors ever since. I feel privileged to be a part of a local company with so many active, successful agents.  Born and raised in Portland, I live in the NW area with my husband and boys.  I love living in Portland, although I do have to admit there are many days during the winter that I long for sunshine and blue skies!

My Background:

I’m a University of Portland Pilot through and through!  My Dad, Joe Etzel was the longtime U.P. Athletic Director and our entire family are proud UP graduates. I graduated with a degree in Nursing and worked as an RN for over 15 years. Most of my nursing career was spent at OHSU, first as a floor nurse and then as a case manager. A self-proclaimed "mid-career crisis" led me to Real Estate, which I love! 

In my spare time:

Having two boys in school and involved in sports, doesn’t leave me a lot of free time! I love cheering them on at their games, volunteering at their schools and just hanging out as a family. We enjoy attending local sporting events together and spending time in Central Oregon. A few years ago we welcomed Charlie, a Goldendoodle, into our family. He has added another layer of fun to our daily lives. Gardening, decorating, and volunteering are just a few of the other things I enjoy.  

Fun Fact:

Who says you can't go home... My husband and I bought the home I was raised in from my parents when they decided to downsize several years ago. It's been fun raising our boys in the home I grew up in. We love the location, the neighborhood, backing to a park and adding our personal touch over time.  We went from living in a new home for 11 years to a mid-century home, so there is always a project!

Referrals:

They are the ultimate compliment and testimony to my service.  My goal is to be the realtor that you refer to family and friends. I pride myself on my friendly, professional approach and I will always have your best interest in mind.  I would love the opportunity to represent you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Designations  

Hasson Relocation, Masters Circle

Kathy's name came to us highly recommended. We were first time buyers with no knowledge about the home buying process or the area, we were purchasing in. Kathy was highly available, listened, understood the negotiating process and was patient with us as new buyers. What impressed us the most was her pro-activeness and knowledge of the market. We would not be in our home today if it wasn't her dedication and quick actions. Thank you, Kathy. You are a phenomenal realtor and a genuine person.

— Noel and Rich

We were very fortunate to have Kathy Kollas as our real estate agent to guide and assist us in the purchase of a townhome. She knew the areas of interest very well and was able to "zero in" immediately on what we were seeking. Kathy would point out the possibilities of properties that we certainly would have overlooked, All her advice was sound, and she responded quickly to our phone calls and emails. Most importantly, Kathy gave us good counsel during negotiations with the seller. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Kathy again and plan to refer her to friends and family looking to buy or sell.

— Tom and Toni

Thank you Kathy for everything you did to get us through this process! Your guidance and patience really helped us feel comfortable. You're fantastic!

— Helen and Dave

Kathy was my broker in selling my older condo in an area with a lot of new development. She was amazing the entire time! She was professional, knowledgeable, had connections to resources I needed, and made appropriate recommendations to work with my timeline and budget. She let contractors into my place and monitored their progress so that I didn’t t have to take time off of work. She was also empathetic about how stressful the process is. My condo sold in the first month it was on the market.

— Cynthia

Thank you so much for helping me buy a home! You made the process so easy for me and were always on top of everything. I really appreciate you going above and beyond to help set up appointments to get bids for upgrades so I could move in sooner. I can't imagine a better experience becoming a homeowner! Thank you so much.

— Katie

My husband and I agonized over which realtor we should choose to sell our home that we had lived in for over 29 years and we are so delighted that we chose Kathy, who was recommended to me by my mother's attorney. She was terrific. Not only did she have expert local knowledge of our area, but she was also was up to date with all the new realities of selling a home. She was a real marketing pro! She helped us get our home ready by getting us the resources to help us stage the property and then get it photographed so that it looked amazing! We probably had at least 20 families come to view our home the first couple of days it was on the Market -- I am sure that the way the home was presented online was key to this response. Kathy was also hugely helpful when we had to sort through multiple offers on our property. As the sale progressed through the process, home inspection, appraisal, and so on, Kathy was always there and on top of things. This was immensely helpful to me as I am real worrier. Our sale went smoothly and came off without a hitch! Kathy met and far exceeded all of our requirements. She was terrific!!!

When my husband and I decided to purchase our first house we were not looking particularly forward to the process as we had heard so many horror stories from friends when it came to dealing with their real estate agents. I am happy to say my husband and I were blown away by Kathy’s commitment to helping us find the right home. She never once showed us something out of our price range and when we asked difficult questions she would give us an honest answer rather than simply telling us what we wanted to hear. We ended up settling on a new build and the entire process took about six months, which wasn’t without its difficulties. The builder’s agent was quite difficult to work with but Kathy brought light to the situation and was always fighting for our best interests. And because this was our first time buying a home we had about one million questions and she never made us feel like we were taking up any of her time, she was always available for us. I truly cannot say enough great things about Kathy, she is awesome (and hilarious)—we can honestly say she will be our agent for life!

— Sam and Alexandra

Kathy Kollas was terrific to work with and we thoroughly enjoyed our house buying experience. I have no feedback that would greater serve you or future clients. Our Overall experience was top notch!

I live in Seattle and worked with Kathy Kollas to sell a property in Portland. She was professional from the beginning of our relationship and was so helpful in suggesting and finding resources to help get the property ready to go on the market. When it was ready to sell, she researched extensively the correct price point and it not only sold, but we had 8 offers over asking price. In evaluating the offers, Kathy again helped to look at all the factors before deciding which would be the most solid. It wasn't the highest offer, but the one that would close with least complications. Throughout the entire process, I never felt she pressured me to make decisions too quickly or under pressure. I travel a lot and yet she was patient and willing to work in consideration of different time zones and on weekends. I would recommend her without any reservations.

— Mary

Again, many thanks for all your help with both of my transactions I will certainly be recommending you to anyone I know who needs help with buying or selling their home!

— Patricia

Dear Kathy, Thank you so much for all of your help with selling our home and buying a new home. We are amazed that you sold our home in less than a month of being on the market! We truly felt your patience, availability, and depth of experience through the whole process. Thank you for all of your hard work and unlimited advice. You made the experience seem effortless from the beginning to the end. We are enjoying our new home! Thanks again!
