Empathetic, adaptable, personable, loyal and genuine are just a few of the adjectives used to describe Katie Kratus by her satisfied clients.
A Park Cities native, Katie grew up surrounded by the historic properties of one of Dallas’ most revered neighborhoods. Gazing at grand homes while on Sunday drives with her family helped plant the seed for what would eventually be a thriving career as a Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Internationals Realty agent.
After graduating from Highland Park High School, Katie earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Georgia. She chose to continue her studies in the field of nursing at Louisiana College and eventually became a nurse at Parkland Hospital. The experience of high-pressure situations and rapid decisions of the medical field gave her an advantage when she ultimately decided to transition into real estate.
Katie, who has also lived in Georgia, Colorado and Louisiana, has found her perfect niche in Lakewood. She delights in sharing the area’s blue ribbon DISD schools, unique architecture, and gorgeous landscapes with her clients, although she also appreciates and knows the fresh personality and vibe found in every neighborhood in Dallas.
Proficient with working with first-time homeowners and experienced buyers alike, Katie’s goal is to help match all clients to the pocket of the city that is perfect for their lifestyle. Her commitment, attention to detail and high level of personal service—from home inspections to introductions to the city’s best tradespeople—assures that each of her clients feels secure and satisfied in their new home.
When not selling real estate, Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and daughters at White Rock Lake, cooking, entertaining and traveling. Be sure to ask about her favorite spots found while traveling around the world with her family!
