Kate Lee Komaiko, Realtor® with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, Cal DRE 02161655

With twenty years experience in the food service industry, my passion is helping people buy and sell kitchen spaces- from the warm and welcoming heart of your home to the restaurant you’ve been dreaming of. I’m looking forward to using creative and organizational skills, combined with a true love of my hometown, Ojai, to provide real estate services that enhance our community.

What do you do for fun, outside of work?

I enjoy hiking our beautiful trails with my husband Andy, or spending quiet time in the garden with my dog Claire. International travel has always been a passion; exposure to different places and cultures creates an appreciation for ways of life around the world. An ideal weekend would be cooking with family and friends and spending time with loved ones.

What’s your favorite part about guiding your client through the real estate experience?

My favorite part is assisting a client through the process of identifying what is truly important to them in a property. Each buyer and seller has different priorities, and I enjoy guiding them in finding an ideal match for their circumstance.

What’s your favorite home trend right now?

During the pandemic, people have started utilizing spaces in their home in wonderfully creative ways. In Ojai, we have the unique ability to have both indoor/outdoor living almost year round.Creating areas that lend themselves towards an organic lifestyle that showcases the nature around us is my favorite “trend” that will hopefully continue as a staple for the future.

What excites you most about joining LIV Sotheby’s International Realty?

Joining LIV Sotheby’s International Realty is like joining the all star team! Working with such knowledgable and professional individuals, as well as a fantastic support team, has accelerated my introduction into the industry.

What’s your goal in the next three months?

My goal in the next 3 months is to continue laying a strong foundation for years to come. By developing community connections and creating efficient and clear systems, I’m looking forward to providing the highest level of service for clients and other real estate professionals.
