Print Agent Bio

I have over 15 years of sales and marketing experience to help you buy, sell or invest in Real Estate. 

 

I am an organized and disciplined professional who excels at time management and multi-tasking. Proven, effective sales results with strong negotiation skills will help craft the perfect contract that wins for all sides. I will provide impeccable service, expert advice, neighborhood information and market statistics to help you make the right decision about your property.

 

When it comes to marketing your listing – I will not rest until I find the best buyer for your home. Making it work is my passion. I combine internet marketing, social media, grass roots door knocking, direct mailers, face-to-face connections, and decades of community connections to successfully locate the perfect buyer.  I am a native Oregonian and absolutely love introducing my home town to my relocating clients. 

 

I graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in sociology and global studies. After returning to Portland in 2005, I bought my first home in the Bethany neighborhood of NW Portland for 7 years. Recently, I relocated south to my childhood neighborhood in Wilsonville with husband, Sean, 8-year-old daughter, Paige, 5-year-old daughter Hayley, and 2-year-old Jackson. I enjoy spending time with family, running, cooking, connecting with old friends, making new ones and exploring Portland and Oregon!

Designations  

Hasson Relocation, Masters Circle

My new nickname for our realtor, is Kat "the Regulator" Granum! As many of you in the Portland area know, this market is nuts! It's competative, and people are offering so much above asking! Kat was positive through it all, and reminded us that our dream house would find us. As first time home buyers I had no idea what to expect. And when things went awry, she stayed calm, made calls & sent emails quickly to resolve any issues in a timely manner. I would recommend Kat to ANYONE in this housing game, you won't be sorry.

— Desiree

We couldn't be happier with Kat! She made our home buying experience awesome and was so helpful and professional. Kat was always available for questions and was quick to return phone calls and emails. She was always looking out for our best interests and negotiated a great deal for us in a hot market. We couldn't be more pleased with our buying experience. We don't plan on moving again anytime soon, but if we did, we would call Kat in a heartbeat. Kat is an excellent realtor- we highly recommend her!!

— Natalie

Kat is the hardest working agent! She is always available and helped us navigate some pretty tricky negotiations. Thanks for selling our home fast in this crazy market and helping us land our dream home in time for the holidays.

— Lyndsay & Rick

"Kat was absolutely amazing! I felt I had a partner from day one in this journey...and I have no doubt Kat's dedication, professionalism and knowledge made all the difference! I am so grateful for her help and guidance...and feel so fortunate she was my realtor."

— Donna

Thanks Kat, for all your work in selling my condo last spring. There was another unit like mine, that came on the market just as we closed that took more than six months to sell, and it sold for slightly less than mine. Your advice to be the first listing really paid off, as did your heroic efforts in getting the place sold. I plan to keep renting for awhile longer but I'm always happy to tell others about you. Very best wishes.

— Gail McMurchie

My experience with Kat was wonderful! Kat was so professional, warm and welcoming. She was so incredibly organized when showing us homes and I loved that she didn’t just show us homes but actually took the time to listen to us and to observe our reactions to things. She used a ranking method that was super helpful for us to be able to hone in on what we really liked and didn’t like. I never felt the pressure to move forward with any home. When I asked to see properties at the last minute, she somehow found the time to show me, which I find incredible. Her communication was awesome! Any time that I needed anything she got back to me within an hour or got back to me to say when she would get back to me. In working with Kat, it made me realize what a bad experience that I had with my realtor who helped me purchase our first home. The differences really stood out. I love how professional, organized and thorough she has been. I also really appreciated her professional opinion when my husband and I were divided on homes. It helped us to understand by hearing from her experience. Even now that I have bought my home, Kat is still helping us answer a few lingering questions. I love our new home and have no immediate plans to move but if we should ever want too, I would reach out to Hasson and more importantly Kat again.

If anyone is looking to invest in one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. Call Kat Granum. She just got my neighbor an amazing deal on a house and I am jealous

— David

We had such a great time working with you Kat! You made our first home buying experience smooth sailing.

— Sara & Reid

You are so good at what you do!!! Thank YOU for helping us with our home! Everyone should use you as a realtor!!!

— Carrie

You are a fabulous Realtor and an even better person! I'm blown away!!

— Mark

Kat did an excellent job helping me purchase a home for my mother. I had a very tight budget and specific needs that made the search challenging. I had worked with several other realtors that did nothing more than add me to an automated email list of newly listed properties. Kat took the time to meet with me in person and truly understand my needs in a new home. She found several properties that fit my requirements, worked with the HOA to ensure the property would be a good fit for my mother, helped negotiate repairs with the sellers, and even helped chase down missing mail keys weeks after closing. I recommend Kat to anyone I know looking to sell or buy a home and plan to use her in the future for the purchase of my own home.

— Mera

Kat is the best realtor I've ever worked with. She's very honest, professional, always there for you! Thank you Kat for making my life less stressful. She helped me sell my condo within a short period of time and help me moved into my dream home. I'm truly impressed with her dedication and work ethic!

— Christy & Taylor

Kat is ethical and thorough and genuinely cares and fights for her clients! She knows the business and is very good at her job.

— Carrie

Hi Kat, I just want to stop by and say how much I appreciate you. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job of selling my condo and also get us our dream home! You are truly the best at what you do. I've work with multiple reators in the past and no one compare to you. Thanks again, I feel like I cant thank you enough. Definitely stressfree having you as my realtor!

— Taylor

Thank you so much for helping guide us into this next chapter of our lives. You were patient, persistent, and of course incredibly pleasant to work with.

She helped us make a uniquely competitive offer to win out on a highly desirable home, and made the process of selling our house easier (and more successful) than we could have imagined."

"Kat assisted my wife and I on a cross country move from NC to OR. Having the experience of a split realtor experience (sellers agent in NC and Kat (buyers agent in OR)) was a perfect opportunity to see just how head and shoulders above Kat really was relative to what I call "auto-pilot project management". She truly took care of all the details needed and guided my wife and I into a smooth Portland landing. Couldn't be happier or recommend her more!"

"Kat was amazing!! Friendly, professional, and genuine every step of the way. We couldn't imagine buying our first home, or any future home for that matter, without Kat by our side. She is so knowledgeable in her field and it shows. We always had complete confidence in the home buying process because of Kat. She always explained everything thoroughly and checked in to make sure we didn't need anything. As first time home buyers she helped put our mind at ease throughout the whole process. A huge bonus, she helped us pick out our finishes on our new home. Which was very helpful, considering how indecisive I can be. I can't say enough good things about Kat! We love her and she will always be our Realtor!! We will never use anyone else!! Thank you so much for all your hard work Kat!! You are amazing!!"

"I cannot say enough about my experience working with Kat! She is absolutely fantastic at what she does and creates what I strongly feel is the ideal experience for anyone going about the home buying/selling process. I have worked with other realtors in the area in the past, none of which were anywhere close to as knowledgeable, proficient, or well-connected. Kat sets herself apart through her ability to truly connect with her clients and keep their needs in focus throughout the entire transaction. She helped us find our dream home in the greater Portland area, and made every step of the journey seamless and efficient. We felt confident from start to finish that we were in good hands, and Kat constantly reassured us of that with her efforts, time and time again. She truly cares about the client experience and works hard to ensure that the service provided is nothing short of exceptional. Buying or selling a home can be stressful. I would strongly recommend anyone interested in doing so do themselves a favor, and enlist Kat's services to help guide you through the process. There is no one better, and you will not regret it! Thank you Kat for your professionalism, persistence, and dedication from start to finish, and for working so hard to make the client experience memorable!"

"My wife and I recently took my oldest daughter's advice and asked Kat to represent us in our effort to sell my father-in-law's house. Kat successfully marketed the property, clearing several hurdles for us along the way. We particularly liked the way Kat guided us through the process, making assertive suggestions and firmly negotiating in our best interests. Kat was consistently accessible and promptly returned our frequent calls in a friendly and positive manner.
Kat has represented my oldest daughter through multiple home sales and purchases over the past 7-8 years. Kat has also just completed representing our youngest daughter and her husband through the purchase of a larger home, and immediately selling the smaller house.
Kat has become like family to us when it comes to real estate and we can confidently recommend her to anyone looking for what we consider to be the best agent in the area. Dean & Cathy Winans 2-6-2021"
