About Kathe Van Hoften


In today's complex real estate market, it is critical to hire an agent who is experienced, professional and market saavy.  I have been successfully buying and selling real estate in Orange County for over 10 years.  I am also an experienced short sale agent so whether you are looking to find a great deal to buy or trying to figure out your options for selling, I am here to help guide and support you. 

My tagline is "The Realtor with a Heart" because with every sale I make, I donate money to any charity you choose.  I also go above and beyond the call of duty to help sell my listings- staging your home, yard design and free maid service are just some of the many perks my clients receive. 

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you and earning your business.
