Potential Sellers: Pricing homes to sell in a reasonable time period is her strength. With an appraisal background, you can be assured that your home will be priced appropriately to current market conditions. Kathy will work hard to market your property and find you a qualified buyer.
Buyers: Her appraisal background will benefit you as well. When you choose to work with Kathy as your exclusive Buyer’s Broker, you can be assured that you won’t pay too much for the home of your dreams. She will work tirelessly to find you the property that best suits your needs. As a seasoned landlord and real estate investor, her knowledge will guide you through the process, as a novice or long time property investor.
Appraisals: People need real estate appraisals for a variety of reasons, refinancing a mortgage, settling an estate or divorce, determining market value for gifting purposes or just curious of the current market value. PMI, also known as Private Mortgage Insurance, is charged by your lender on any mortgage that is less than 80% of the value of the property. This charge can be eliminated by submitting a current appraisal of your home that demonstrates that you have more than 20% equity in the property. This can save you thousands in the long run.
I have been doing real estate appraisals since 1985, having earned the SRA (Senior Residential Appraiser) designation of the Appraisal Institute in 1989. I served as president of the Western Massachusetts Appraisal Institute from 1995 to 1996. I would be happy to help you.
Kathy Borawski is an experienced,and competent real estate professional. Call her soon, you won’t be sorry!

Mindy caught the real estate bug in 2002 when she bought my first multi-family house, in Holyoke, MA. Soon after,she obtained my real estate license and began helping friends and clients buy and sell homes. That quickly branched out into property management, continuing on the landlord track with a 2nd multi-family, and spending numerous hours advising clients on just what makes a well-built home.
These days she keep busy consulting with sellers on the fixes needed to get their homes ready to put up for sale and then listing their property. Mindy also helps buyers sift through hundreds of homes so they can find the one that is perfect for them. Whether it’s helping her clients locate a single family home to downsize into, or to spend a lifetime in while they raise their family, or encouraging a budding entrepreneur in finding a solid multi-family and then discussing their livelihood as a landlord, sheam energized by the entire industry and loves being involved in the real estate process from start to finish.
In between showing homes and keeping my clients moving forward,Mindy spends time with her Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Dante, at the Northampton dog park. If you haven’t been there, the dog park is one of the most picturesque places in the Pioneer Valley. In fact, she spends a lot of time with Dante; he’s usually riding shotgun in my Tacoma to the next real estate showing, nose hanging out the window to smell the crisp New England air.
The most rewarding part of being a Realtor is that mindy gets to spend time meeting new people, empowering them and then stepping into their shoes, seeing houses in a way that is important to them. Whetherher clients are searching for an urban environment or a more rural place to settle into, The Pioneer Valley offers a high quality of life and it’s a place that Mindy has proudly called my home since 2000.
