Kate Mitchell is a second-generation Realtor having been born and raised in the Portland area. After 5 years in the real estate industry on the administration side, Kate joined the Apa-Clarke Team and assisted in successfully closing over 20 million in sales. In 2019, she decided to step out as a broker in her own right.
“I decided it was time to make the transition. My mother and I wanted to establish a team, that had been our dream for years”. Unfortunately, a few months into mapping what they hoped would be Mitchell Real Estate, Patti fell ill and was forced into retirement. Fortunately for Kate, she has found a home for her business at ELEETE Real Estate.
She has earned a reputation for providing excellent service with a smile. Always positive and present with clients, she can bring a sense of ease into the most difficult situations. “I believe a passion for people must come first in real estate. Knowledge and expertise are essential to a good broker but partnered with a passion for people and their needs – that is what makes a great broker. I strive to deliver that powerful service to my clients.” With a background in contracts and negotiation, Kate brings the balance necessary for providing a smooth and enjoyable real estate experience.
When Kate is not in the office or working with clients, like most Oregonians, she enjoys exploring the many offerings of the beautiful NW state with her partner and their two dogs, Tank and DeBruijn. She can also be found performing music around Portland, but her greatest guilty pleasure is karaoke. “I think being joyful in all things is important – you can’t help but be joyful singing your favorite song while a crowd is cheering you on!
