The following testimonial is a statement of appreciation to Katherine Bacon of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, and attests that my husband and I offer our unqualified endorsement of her services.
About 18 months ago, after trying a local agent, our own internet selling, and a ten month stretch when we tried unsuccessfully to sell to someone who really just landed in our laps, we decided to ask Kathy if she would represent us in our efforts to finalize what was turning out to be a difficult sale.
We had a century historic home, also used a Bed and Breakfast, in St. Andrews, NB, to sell. The house was in excellent condition, was very energy efficient, and was reasonably priced.
I cannot say enough that is good about Kathy’s services. We heard of someone who was “interested”. Kathy took over adeptly. She acted as dual-agent (representing both sides) and did it extremely well. She was very attentive throughout the whole process. The buyers faced some challenges and Kathy presented options that helped them move the endeavor along. She always kept all of us on both sides completely informed. She never made us feel that we were intruding on her time, as sadly, many agents do. She advertised our property during the whole process. She was always positive and professional. Even though her office was over an hour’s drive away, she spent lots of time visiting with us and keeping our spirits up.
Kathy Bacon has represented some extremely high-profile sellers and buyers in NB. Even though ours was not a very highly priced property, she never spent less time on us than we asked for! She values all her clients, I do believe, low, medium and highest-priced property sellers and buyers.
As a dear friend of mine said, when we listed with her, after two years of aggravating attempts to sell, “Katherine Bacon delivers”!! Yahoo, we do agree!

Our Realtor— A Step Above!!!
We chose Katherine Bacon to list our property because we wanted someone specially qualified to sell the place in which we put so much heart and soul. Katherine understood that immediately and put a great effort into finding us the right buyer in a market place that has recently been challenging. Katherine’s advice was always helpful at putting us on the right track to do what we could to improve the odds of getting a sale. During the process we discovered our similar interests for dogs,automobiles and travel which added a personal and friendly dimension to the process.
If you also want more in your choice of a Realtor to sell your Special Place I could not recommend anyone better than Katherine.
Sincerely Richard and Leonora Paxton plus Herbie the Dog.
Selling your home can always be a stressful experience however you made the process as pleasant as possible. You managed to sell our house in one month in this slow market for a price that we were happy with.
Your dedication, professionalism and friendly attitude was very much appreciated. We would certainly recommend you to anyone.

Why Katherine Bacon is my Real Estate Agent!
As a property owner who has been dealing with Real Estate Agents on higher end waterfront properties for decades, the experience has taught me one important lesson. Deal with a “selling agent,” and one who has a proven track record of selling properties like the property you are selling.
There are plenty of “listing agents” who will tell you your property is worth an inflated price to get you to sign their listing. They then sign you up, plop their sign on your property; put one or two small print ads in the Real Estate Guide over the life of the listing but for the most part, just sit back and wait for another agent to make the sale.
Katherine Bacon is different! She publicizes your property is available to numerous qualified prospective buyers. When she lists a property, she professionally markets it to targeted potential buyers through her personal contact with the many prospects she has developed over time.
She truly follows that old saying, “It Pays to Advertise” in her business practice. Katherine has regular print ads in the local Real Estate Guide, in addition to her web page but she also advertises in international publications like the “DuPont Registry” and similar magazines found in airline seat pockets. These ads get seen by travelers when they fly around the world.
I am pleased to recommend Katherine Bacon to you!

As a first time home buyer, we just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for your expertise and professionalism. You helped us with our endless questions and your honesty and attention to detail made our experience very positive. You went above and beyond to ensure that our house met all of our standards by suggesting a helpful and reliable handyman to complete small renovations and upgrades. He did fabulous work and we continue to use him today.
Thank you for helping us find the home of our dreams. We gladly recommend Prudential and would not hesitate to use you in the future.

“It certainly is great to look at your site and see the new team you’ve put together! We are forever grateful that you took over the selling of our home.”
Now that we have sold the house, moved out and settled in the new place we want to thank you for your assistance, understanding and professionalism in the rather difficult and long process of selling our property.
We appreciate your expertise and assistance.
Your staff has been equally professional and helpful, a special thanks to your assistant Heather Dobson.
Thank you again and drop by if you are in the area.

Our listing slide show was lyrical. It made us tingle a little bit. I called Mary Beth in from the den to look at the photos and captions with me.
We both agreed that you really capture the essence of what is special (to us) about this house.
Our architect also would have loved your comments…you picked up on things that were important to her…such as the emergence of the view as you walk up the stairs and it opens up as you reach the second level…and the stainless steel embedded railing…and the way you drive over a hill and the view begins to unfold as you approach the house.
That slide shows with the captions says volumes about why you are a top producer!
Thank you for devoting such care to our listing.

I was just looking on your website and I’m so impressed with the presentation you have created for this property. The quality pictures, with descriptions, and the write up itself are so exquisitely and professionally done!! You and those who work with you are marvelous. Wish you even more success on your new “independent” venture. I just know you will sell this beautiful place for us. Thank you for being a true realtor. You are a star!!

When we embarked on our daunting move from Ontario to New Brunswick, we knew very little about the Saint John area.
So when we met Katherine Bacon, we were excited…and we have yet to meet anyone who possesses the same wide array of knowledge about Saint John, the interior and exterior communities, trending market conditions, local politics, current events, social happenings, amenities, schools and treasured Maritime history. We have been grateful for this level of expertise while making decisions about investing in a home.
As well, we consider Katherine to be extremely “home savvy”, able to make solid recommendations…from reno projects and paint colours to heating types and decking.
A consummate professional, Katherine has met every step of our home buying process unbiased with explanation, integrity and patience. Any home-buyer, and especially first time home buyers will appreciate Katherine’s acumen, guidance and homespun penchant for people.

I am so pleased that the decision was made to do business with you and your group to sell my home in Rothesay. You sold yourself and your business within the first five minutes of us meeting. Your level of professionalism, efficiency and experience is second to none. This is never an easy process and tends to create additional stress especially for a single female who must take ownership of all aspects. You listened, you advised and you followed through to make a stressful situation bearable and actually enjoyable . Success after just two weeks! Life has returned to normal once again. Thank you Katherine, Kim and Heather for all of your efforts and attention. Keeping me informed every step of the way was so appreciated.

Katherine Bacon! What can I not say! She had us coming and going thru our purchase and our sale and our experience was without a doubt exhilarating! She is most tenacious in all areas of real estate business. Talk about “making it happen” in a fun way. She is prolific in all aspects of sales and marketing and has fantastic follow up, never leaving you wondering what happened after a showing. Katherine was very attuned to our needs and wants throughout our transactions.
What a professional performer!
