Broker & Realtor
Kathie Hooper was one of four agents that helped bring Bean Group to Portland, ME in 2016. Kathie has been a licensed Realtor® and a top producer for over two decades. She earned the Rookie of the Year award when she first started in real estate in 1996 and hasn’t slowed down since. She is a member of the Greater Portland Board of Realtors®, the Maine Association of Realtors®, and the National Association of Realtors®.
Kathie holds a Master’s degree in City Planning from Georgia Tech, which often comes in handy in the real estate industry, especially when zoning or land use issues crop up. After purchasing and selling several homes, Kathie pursued a career in real estate because she knew there was a better way to do business. She enjoys helping buyers with “the hunt” and finding the property that is truly the best “fit”. She takes time to properly price and market her seller’s homes, and takes great satisfaction from negotiating the best deal for all of her clients. She often recommends professional staging to her clients and always uses professional photography including drone and Matterport technology, when needed, to best market each and every listing. She has extensive contacts with contractors and can always come up with the right person for the job if her clients are remodeling or just need some simple repairs done.
Kathie is a strong believer of continuing education in real estate. She holds a number of advanced professional designations and certifications including the coveted CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation which is held by only 4% of agents nationwide. She is always taking classes to stay up to date on how best to serve her clients. Her goal is to make the buying or selling process both stress free and fun.
Kathie is most proud of her family. She and her husband Kevin raised three children together in Falmouth. Her daughter, Casey, holds an Associate Broker license and works as her licensed assistant. Together they provide the most professional and personalized real estate service possible. They are detailed and diligent in their approach and their clients appreciate that. Kathie is a North Carolina native but has lived in Maine for the past 25+ years and intends to stay put! In her non-real estate time, she enjoys gardening, attending concerts, cooking, and interior decorating. She is active in the Foreside Garden Club, is a Council Member of the Epilepsy Foundation in Maine and an active volunteer with the Epilepsy Foundation of New England.
