Katie helped navigate us through an extremely challenging market (for buyers) so we were able to purchase a beautiful home we loved. We admittedly were all over the map when we started the process and Katie ably and calmly shepherded us through to the finish line.Eric on Zillow

Katie was a fantastic partner in our house hunt. She had an incredible well of knowledge on the west side of Los Angeles and helped us find our dream property. She was also incredibly helpful in helping us identify an architect and other service providers for our project. She went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of!
Katie was an absolute dream to work with! I came into the home-search process unsure of what I wanted, and Katie took so much time to educate me and explore all different options, and was incredibly generous with her time and knowledge about everything from neighborhood dynamics to pricing and negotiations to potential remodeling opportunities. She was fun, patient, easygoing, and went above and beyond to handle the little issues that came up along the way so I wouldn't have to stress. She's like a real estate therapist, friend, and expert all rolled into one! And nobody knows the LA real estate market better. I ended up in my ideal rent-to-own situation that was a rare find and could not have happened without Katie working her magic.
Due to COVID-19, the process for this sale took over a year to close, and Katie was able to advise me and navigate this unprecedented situation with the utmost professionalism. You are in good hands with Katie!
It is been an absolute pleasure working with Emma Russell and Katie Pardee In my quest to find a 1031 exchange. I knew Pardee was a great company but was really surprised by the professionalism and warmth the team has shown. Emma and Greg are alway a joy to meet with and always organized and flexible. Love working with everyone, thank you all. On the sale side Paige Ogden is amazing and taking great care of the property I'm selling. I feel like they really care about what they do and about being the best in the business. That's to Pardee it looks like my complicated 1031 exchange is going to work out just fine.
Katie and her team were extremely helpful during our search process. They had great insights about the homes and neighborhoods we were considering and ultimately helped us find the perfect place for our family. Someone from the team was always quick to respond to requests and helped made the process as smooth as possible. Not to mention they gave us great advice on the offer and subsequent counters during such a competitive market.
My wife and I recently purchased a home thanks to Katie. We can’t overstate how incredible Katie and Emma (#TeamKatie) were from the start of the process to the end. Katie was absolutely a phenomenal partner. She was an exceptional guide as we made the biggest purchase of our life in arguably the most competitive market. And Emma was behind the scenes keeping us on track through the journey. From start to finish, Team Katie was unbelievable. A friend had referred me to Katie and mentioned that he wouldn’t have been able to get to his home without the Pardee touch. It's safe to say that there is no way we would have secured our house if it wasn’t for Katie. She helped us through the ups and downs that come with a difficult market, and she made it possible to win on a house that had 17 offers on it (not a typo). We now tell our friends they’d be fools to work with anyone else. Look no further. Katie is hands down the best.

Katie was with us all the way in our recent purchase. Was lucky to have her answer all questions and advocate for us. Hopefully we don’t move again but if we do Pardee is the one for us.
The Pardee team is second to none. Fortunately or unfortunately, I've moved many times and I would never consider buying or selling a house without them. Professional, responsive and always, always, always on your team.
In a matter of months, Katie took us from casually house searching to closing on our first home. We could not be happier with the knowledge and support she provided us. In the early days, whether it was Saturday, Sunday or a weekday evening, Katie never lacked the energy to meet us for multiple house tours (this was during COVID and there were no Open Houses; everything was by appointment). Whether we were too far east, or the place was too small or too expensive, Katie never expressed any bias about houses or toward my wife or me. She simply listened and pointed out the strategic value of each property. Over time, she clearly learned each of our preferences (not that such a skill is required) and this helped us narrow down our search and ultimately compromise our respective wants. Then, Katie helped us negotiate the price. When we expressed typical first-time homebuyer fears and doubts, she was quick to talk us through the mountains of paper work ensuring that we felt comfortable and confident. From A to Z, she was first class. We highly recommend Katie and the folks at Halton Pardee!
Katie and her team were excellent.
I reached out to Katie several years prior to purchasing my new house and we kept in touch over the years. Before I became serious about buying a house, she was always available to provide market insight.
After COVID began, my wife fell in love with a house in the Marina that had been on the market for some time; however, the listed price was outside of our budget. Katie buttered up the seller's agent and had the house under contract within a week for 10% less than asking with a 60-day outside closing date and a buyer's contingency.
Next Katie coordinated with a Pardee selling agent (Kerry Ann) who swept in and had my current house photographed, had a "video tour" prepared and then listed my house on MLS --- all of which was done within 15 days. My house was under contract within 30 days after the listing.
Like all purchase escrows, there were bumps in the road. However, the dynamic duo handled them calmly and gracefully --- ultimately, I closed on the sale of my old house two weeks before the sale my new house.
Thanks Katie, Kerry Ann, Emma and Eric
Katie and her team are always great to work with.
I've worked with them on two house purchases in Santa Monica, and both times Katie and her team have executed extraordinarily well.
Dependable, market savvy, and always on time are key attributes I find in Katie and her team.
I would highly recommend speaking to or working with Katie's team on any residential real estate - they are the best!
We could not have imagined better people to help us in our first home purchase. Katie and Emma are very professional and intelligent in what they do. They lead us every step of the way and were so attentive and passionate. It really made the process that much more exciting.
Once we found our dream home, we were determined to make it ours and we could not have done that without them. They made it their priority to make it happen. Katie and Emma used their experience and expertise to make our offer stand out and strategized in all the best ways. They had answers to all of our questions and solutions and patience when complications occurred.
We would definitely recommend working with them. 10/10, no complaints. We would easily work with them again, but we are so happy in our new home I don’t see that ever happening!!
Thank you endlessly!!!
From the moment I met Katie and her wonderful partners I knew I had found the perfect person and team to help me with my search to find a new home in the very complicated city of Venice. As a single, and admittedly older woman I wanted to be safe and secure. She showed me many, many homes and most importantly she listened and understood all of my needs and desires; she knew exactly what I was looking for in a very short time.
Once the dream home was found in the exact neighborhood/part of Venice of interest to me she was way, way, way beyond helpful in both negotiating the sale but also understanding the complexities of my own financial situation. She did everything in her power to make things work and they did; every moment was supported with the right information and people to help make things happen. She also made certain that I had important information about the services in this new community I was entering and provided all the help I needed! Never thought this type of personal service and attention was possible with a real estate agent; but she was and is amazing. Anyone looking to enter the Venice market will be truly lucky to find Katie Pardee!
Katie Pardee was one step ahead of my entire process to buy a home... She lead me with grace, ease and flow through the process (which is not easy when buying a home!) She was very informative, found me exactly the house I wanted and made it all masterfully to close of escrow without breaking a sweat. She's also very connected in this world and knows everyone (and they all love her) - you'd be crazy to not work with Katie!
Katie and Emma were the best. I would have no hesitation recommending the team to anyone. Katie responded to my email within minutes and had an offer written up for me that same night (even though I hadn’t contacted her until after 5 PM).
Katie and Emma has everything covered throughout the whole process and beyond. They even gave me all of the contacts that I would need following closing, and have continued to be extremely helpful.
Definitely a team to have on your side!
We worked with Katie Pardee to purchase a home in Venice. From start to finish the process was stress free and seamless. Katie is kind, professional and very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Katie. Also, the staff at Halton Pardee made the process simple. The office is well run and friendly. We would definitely recommend Katie to anyone looking for a great person to work with.
We just bought a house in Venice and Katie was our agent. She was extremely helpful throughout the process and helped us locate and buy what we feel is our dream home. We had a very particular idea of what we wanted (and where) and Katie helped us get it. If it wasn't for her, we wouldn't have gotten the house. We'd probably still be looking. She was amazing.
Katie has helped us buy two houses. It's a testament to her expertise that after our first experience with her that she was the first person we came to when we wanted to buy another house for a rental opportunity. We like Katie because she knows the process, she's no nonsense, and she really negotiates for you. She's also really nice! The process of buying a house can be one of the most stressful experiences a person has in life. We were lucky to find Katie to have on our side guiding us and taking care of all the details throughout the entire process. We'll keep using her for years to come.
Working with Katie and Emma was a dream! They took such great care of me and made the process easy and fun! I loved looking at properties with them and when we found the condo that I purchased, they helped answer any and all questions and kept me so well informed. I know buying can be a daunting process, but Katie and Emma we in constant communication with me, walked me through every detail, and went to bat for me whenever I needed. I cannot recommend this team enough! THANK YOU BOTH for being so wonderful to work with! I will always use Katie Pardee as my agent in the future!
Katie is the ultimate Westside agent when it comes to knowledge about the area and the beat of the market. Katie was very in-tune with current pricing and new trends, which really helped us make a great decision in our home buying process. I would highly recommend using Katie for anything single family residential related throughout West LA as she's at the top of her craft compared to her peers.
This agency is a very professional company. I will use them again when I sell my house some day because they are that good. We got a great service from Katie Pardee, she is not only a very professional buying agent, but more like a friend stand by your side when you are on the process of purchasing. Overall this is with a great pleasure purchasing experience and we could not express more of our gratitude.
Katie Pardee and the rest of the team were exceptional. Buying a home while simultaneously selling your home is incredibly stressful and time consuming. Katie and her team helped up through every step. Thanks to Katie, we have our dream home. I would Highly recommend Katie Pardee and Halton Pardee + Partners.
Katie was a delight. Fun, knowledgeable, honest, and was always available for us any day of the week. We could not be happier with our buying experience!
Katie and her fantastic team helped us find our dream home in Venice! We were first-time home buyers and Katie and co did an amazing job guiding us through the process.
We looked for months and despite very low inventory, Katie showed us some fantastic homes—including a number of properties before they hit the market. When we found the home we eventually purchased she did an incredible job throughout the negotiation process. I know that without her help we wouldn't have closed this deal—particularly because there were a number of other bidders.
She and the team were also very helpful during the escrow process, always available to answer our many (many) questions. They were able to recommend not only some great inspectors, but also contractors to help with some work we're doing to the place.
We highly recommend working with Katie and her team. There's nobody that knows Santa Monica/Venice better—and has the connections to help you find your dream home
Katie was a pleasure to work with! Her expertise in the real estate market on the westside helped to guide us throughout our home search. She was ahead of the market and knew what would be coming on before the rest of the public. When we found our house, she had a relationship with the seller's realtor, so it made negotiations smooth and painless. I highly recommend her.
Katie is awesome! I was a first time home buyer and she made it easy to get exactly the house I wanted. She explained the process clearly, and was very available for any questions along the way. Would definitely recommend!
Katie was extremely helpful and a great resource. She spent a lot of time making sure we found the right house that met all of our various criteria. We highly recommend her.

Katie is a true professional and was a pleasure to work with. She gave trusted unbiased advice, has her finger on the pulse of the market and helped ease what can be a difficult process. I would definitely work with her again!
Katie helped my partner and I find our California dream home in no time at all! Being New Yorkers we knew we wanted a second home in LA and started our search at the beach. That search quickly evolved to the Hollywood Hills and even though that is not Katie's primary area of expertise she was quick to get all of the information we needed to make the best decision possible. Katie's negotiation skills proved invaluable during a bidding war with 15 other people!! We got the house which was unbelievable but we also gained a friend. We could not have been more happy with our experience with Katie. She gets the job done and fast! I would recommend her to anyone!
For about two years I was on an independent search for a single family home or a duplex in my price range on the West Side of Los Angeles. When I finally found the family compound of my dreams - a house with a legal guesthouse on a large lot in Mar Vista - I was not surprised that it was being sold by Halton Pardee Partners. They have grown to dominate the real estate market here, which gave me a slight prejudice against them. But I quickly learned they are dominating with good reason: they are friendly, forthright, strategic, hard-working, communicative AND they are nice. They work in teams, so there is always someone available to find an answer to your question. The people they train for their teams are organized and have great social skills. All of this made me glad I chose to go with their buyer's agent, Katie Pardee, and her assistant/team member, Emma Russell, even though it could have been a conflict of interest to use the same firm as the seller. Katie had the escrow company, the necessary inspectors and the repairmen at her fingertips. She made the appointments, expedited negotiations with the seller and left me with a clean property, as well as a list of handymen, housekeepers and utility companies to call. I admire her work ethic and I would choose her as my agent again were I to buy another property.
Katie was and continues to be an incredibly competent and helpful realtor. She was absolutely essential, not only in negotiating and helping us get an accepted offer at the right price, but also in ensuring that the deal finally went through. This was our first home purchase, coming off a poor experience on another property where we dealt with a dual agent with an accepted offer that still ended up falling through due to boneheaded negotiations. The experience with Katie and Halton Pardee was a night and day difference. Coming into this with some understanding of the challenges of buying on the west side, we were impressed with the depth and breadth of Katie's knowledge, as well as the firm's network of connections. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy in this difficult market.
