Since joining Pardee Properties in 2009, Katie Pardee has assisted a diverse clientele totaling over $400 million in purchases to-date. Helping people find their dream home and creating lasting relationships along the way is her passion. Equipped with a charming and sarcastic sense of humor, she intuitively puts clients at ease. Her strong work ethic, coupled with longstanding trust and loyalty, make Katie a valuable team member and a vital component to Pardee Properties’ success.
Katie received a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a minor in psychology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Living and working in Venice reminds her of where she was born and raised — a small island known as Cape Ann in Massachusetts. The energy from the beach community is what she thrives on and she appreciates everything it has to offer. “I can’t imagine being anywhere but here. I love my job and am so proud of all that we do. We’re all family here and a crazy bunch. Every day is a blast and there is always something new to experience and share!”
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.
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!!
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.
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.
Katie Pardee helped us find and purchase our first home and she was awesome to work with! She understood exactly what we were looking for and on our…first day of "officially" looking, we found our house! While we were lucky to find a house so quickly, we had an extremely challenging process with our mortgage broker and Katie helped us through the difficult process every step of the way in order to make sure we got our house! Team Katie all the way!
Loved working with Katie Pardee and her team, who were fast-moving, responsive, and very knowledgable about the westside and the deals happening in our neighborhood. Looking forward to…recommending her to others in the future.
I really enjoyed working with Katie Pardee when it came to buying my house in LA. My husband and I moved to LA from NYC and didn't really…know the area well. Katie knew the area well and recommended what areas she thought we should start looking in and was really helpful through the whole process. Our first offer fell through b/c of a contingency on our NYC apt selling. Katie understood that things happen and wasn't pushy at all for us to find another place or make this offer go through. Once we were ready to look again - we reached out to Katie and found another place. She was super flexible with her schedule since we weren't able to go to the scheduled open houses and was a joy to work with. She also understood the price we wanted to pay and helped us get the house at that price. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I'd definitely recommend working with them!
Katie Pardee helped us find and purchase our home in May 2016, and we couldn't have navigated the hyper-competitive market that is Venice / Mar Vista without her!… She was very knowledgable, strategic and diligent across all aspects -- searching, negotiating, due diligence, and closing. We would most definitely work with her and Pardee again in the future, they're expertise on the market is unprecedented.
