About Kathleen

My Story


After graduating as a painting/printmaking major from MIAD in 1990s I worked as a professional painter and interior designer. After many years of hard work, I started my own company called Kennedy Painting and Design. For 15 years I worked in some of the most exclusive homes and businesses in the North Shore and Lake Country doing custom murals and decorative finishes. I have a keen eye for design and a broad knowledge of architecture. I worked for many years with my mentor and friend the late Madame Kuony who taught me to always strive for excellence no matter how much work it takes. In 1999 I bought my first duplex in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee. Since then, I've acquired many more rental properties around the city and have fazed into being a full-time realtor. I know this city well, it's rich history, neighborhoods, and real estate value better than I know anything else. I love the joy of walking first-time homebuyers through the complex process of buying a home as well as working with seasoned or first-time investors to find a gem in the rough. If you are thinking of buying or selling, I will work hard for you. I'm down to earth, knowledgeable and genuinely love real estate. I would love to meet you and help you get the most out of your real estate needs.

Excellent! Kathleen helped us sell our house of 25 years to a perfect young couple for substantially more than we expected. She made the process easy, not too scary. Kathleen then helped us find a new home in a new neighborhood. She helped us visualize what it could be. We are now happily relocated. Kathleen was energetic, motivated and a pleasure to deal with

I liked working with Kathleen. She reached out to me about this property, which took initiative. She responded to all questions and requests very quickly and efficiently and she made the entire process seem rather easy, taking away some of the stress that accompanies making a large investment. She also was helpful with recommending contractors. Fun, smart and knowledgeable about the market -- it was great working with her and I remain appreciative for all she did.
