“I just want to let you and Valerie know how much I appreciated all you and Kathy did for me regarding the sale and purchase of my homes. Kathy found the absolutely perfect home for me in Stone Creek. She was so willing to show me home after home till we found this one….and you were wonderful helping me with the Home Warranty. I will certainly recommend Showcase Properties to my friends.“

Fun Questions with Kathy
What’s your favorite aspect of living in Marion County? The best part of working and living in Ocala / Marion County is showing off our beautiful city and everything we have to offer in the way of horse farms, the historic district, the town square (especially at Christmas), our Civic Theatre, the museum, delicious dining options, and so much more. We are truly a city that offers a variety of lifestyle options for our residents.
What keeps you passionate about real estate? We have something to offer for everyone! I am still, after 30+ years in Real Estate, passionate about my clients, whether they are buying or selling. There is no greater feeling than knowing you have found the perfect property for buyers and have made sellers happy and able to move with ease to the next chapter in their lives. The majority of my clients are or have become friends for life. I’m very fortunate.
What do you do in your spare time? In my spare time I enjoy the beach, reading, getting together with friends, visiting my grandkids, and serving at my church.
Cats, dogs, or neither? I have one rescue dog named “Pickles Von Prater” who is the best fur baby ever!
If money were no object, how would you spend your time? I would travel the world with my husband, buy a race horse, buy land and give all the unwanted pets a home, and start a home for single moms with kids who have been abused and give them a fresh start in life.
What’s your charity of choice? My favorite charity is St.Jude for Children, and our church ministry at Christ the King.
