Katie Wade REALTOR®
"My objective is to have both Buyers and Sellers come to the closing table with smiles on their faces and for everyone involved to have a positive and successful experience. I put my heart into everything I do and like to keep things light and fun, but work hard to ensure the transaction flows smoothly and that there is consistent and clear communication every step of the way. I have experience working with Buyers, Sellers, first time home buyers, VA loans, for sale by owner transactions, rehab projects, and have sold everything from foreclosures to million-dollar lakefront property."
Real estate has been a part of Katie’s life since she was a child growing up in Franconia, New Hampshire. “I’ve been exposed to the business for as long as I can remember,” says Katie, “Connecting with people and connecting people with property has been a part of my family’s success.”
With a BA in English from the University of New Hampshire, Katie focused her studies in education and studied abroad in London. When she first moved to Burlington in 2002, she worked in both the Burlington and Shelburne school systems. Recognized as an honest, reliable, and grounded individual – Katie also exhibits great physical and mental strength along with determination. An avid outdoor enthusiast, two of her great passions are rock climbing and backcountry skiing. She and her husband Brian Wade, the General Manager for The Outdoor Gear Exchange, try to have adventures as often as possible.
Katie resides in Burlington with her husband and son.

She was amazing! I had heard wonderful things about working with Katie, and all rung to be true. I know her personally, and her zest she has outside of work echoes in her work. She was attentive, on top of the ball, especially since it was my first home. I don't think I could have asked for a better home-buying-process liaison
- Mackenzie, Bolton
"Katie was fantastic, always there to listen to my moaning and worries. Patient and humorous as needed. Always showing me properties she sought that fit my standards and always quick to get back to me. I would recommend her to any prospective home buyer."
