Kathryn is who you want to know when you're ready to sell or buy a lodging property. Fully knowledgeable about market conditions, ability to find potential with any property, and an experienced professional -- you'll be hard-pressed to find better representation.
Ashish Patel, Mendocino County Seller
Kathryn was the largest key to us securing the inn of our dreams. Her experience in the sale and purchase of lodging properties made her uniquely qualified to guide us through the process. She was always extremely responsive and took the time to provide us with an understanding of each step and to provide guidance when we requested it. Based on our personal experience, we would highly recommend Kathryn to anyone looking to buy a lodging property.
Lindsey & Jeff Myers, Joshua Grindle Inn
We recently purchased a Bed and Breakfast and we couldn't have done it without the support of Kathryn Seo and Lodging Broker's Network. Kathryn provided support in so many ways: helping us investigate the finances so we could base our purchase on sensible comparisons between potential properties, negotiating the right price, working to help secure the SBA loan and helping us obtain all the required licenses and insurance. We were in the hands of an expert and felt confident that our decisions were based on a thorough analysis of the available data. When we are ready to retire and sell the property, we will turn to Kathryn and Lodging Broker’s Network again. They understand lodging and definitely know how to support both sellers and buyers.
Jennifer LaMarre, Fern Grove Cottages

What a blessing to have found Kathryn to assist us in the sale of our inn. We found Kathryn to be very knowledgeable and competent. In addition, Kathryn came with great people skills. We had some twists and turns in our sale and it was Kathryn who kept us focused and came up solutions each time. Without reservation, we recommend Kathryn to anyone looking to sell a lodging property.
Marjorie Ott & Marilyn Draper, San Luis Obispo Sellers
My husband and I recently purchased a wonderful B&B in Cambria Ca. I would describe Kathryn as calm and knowledgeable. This was a complicated transaction and Kathryn was always the voice of calm and reason. We both want to thank Kathryn for sticking with this and bringing success for all. She's the best and anyone would be lucky to have her represent them. I would highly recommend her.
Maureen Hubbell, The Olallieberry Inn, Cambria
Larry and I felt very fortunate to have Kathryn at Lodging Brokers Network represent our property. If you're looking for someone honest, straightforward, organized and knowledgeable about properties and how to value and price them, you don't need to look any further. It was a pleasure working with her.
