Kate DeSimone

As a National Association of Realtors GREEN® designee, Kate is committed to promoting the benefits of solar-powered and energy-efficient homes. To properly market your property, Kate starts with traditional techniques such as careful market analysis to determine value, evaluation of recommended repairs or improvements that should be done prior to listing, ‘staging’ and professional photography. To make sure your solar panels and other upgrades are presented as beneficial, she will gather information from you and generate promotional materials to share with buyers and their affiliates. This balance of traditional marketing and promoting solar energy sets her apart from other real estate professionals.

Kate lives in Warwick with her husband, Bob, and daughters, Claire and June. When she’s not showing properties and negotiating real estate transactions, she can often be found attending classes, trade shows and seminars that pertain to solar panels and building science. As a solar homeowner, Kate understands the importance of getting the best possible return on your solar investment during a real estate transaction.
