San Antonio Realtor Kathy Ripps has dedicated much of her life to giving compassionate, dedicated care to her clients. With a background as a professional counselor and years of experience in real estate investing and property management, Kathy made a natural transition to a real estate agent and luxury home specialist offering dedication and understanding to every transaction.
With a Master's in both Education and Counseling Psychology, Kathy spent 31 years working in the San Antonio school system first as a special education teacher and then as a counselor for middle and high school students. This extensive background has given her a strong ability to understand and relate to the needs of others, allowing her to truly recognize the significant impact buying or selling a home can have on a person's life.
Her people skills are coupled with a keen business and marketing sense which she built on through many years of helping her husband with his personal investment business. Kathy enjoys now helping others to navigate through the process with ease.
