meet kathy ley

I was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and it has been exciting watching this town grow. Lincoln is home to up and coming culinary and artistic treasures; budding live music scene; beautiful parks, golf courses and trails; and has a friendly Midwestern attitude. I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Business Administration using my degree to help my husband launch K and M Painting Corporation and worked in the commercial insurance industry. I later went back to UNL to pursue my teaching certification in business, economics, and technology. With a passion for helping other, and being drawn to the construction industry, I began my career in real estate. My husband Matt and I enjoy watching our 3 children and 2 grandchildren grow up in Lincoln. In our past time, Matt and I love walking and biking on the many trails throughout Lincoln, as well as kayaking on the city and state lakes. You may also find us catching many of the sporting events of the Huskers, Salt Dogs baseball and the Lincoln Stars Hockey. Lincoln continues to grow more dynamic through the years. I would be honored to assist you in any way that I can to help you find your next home.

my philosophy

In the ever-changing world of real estate, the use of cutting edge technology and marketing to list homes for sellers and to find the perfect home for buyers that meet their budget and lifestyle is an important piece in the real estate process. I pride myself in keeping up to date with new technologies and marketing techniques to get the right job done for you. My idea of giving excellent customer service means to tailor fit the many details to your personal needs with a simple and effective approach. I would be honored to assist in any way that I can to help you make your next move forward.
