Mercedes Kauhola


Hi! Okay – I’m totally a “things don’t happen by accident” type of person so I’m stoked that you’re here, reading this, because something has brought you to this place and that is exciting! Either someone referred me to you and you’re doing your research (smart kid!) or you were just scrolling through us agents to find a good fit and something about my photo drew you in. Which was likely the champagne and that is a good sign that we are going to get along great! 🙂

Here’s the deal – Anyone can help you buy/sell a house but if you ask me, the vibe is EVERYTHING! This is an intimate process that can have you feeling all of the things! So get someone you trust. Someone who sees you, hears you, communicates with you and most importantly has fun with you! Can you imagine spending a bunch of time with someone that you can’t relate to?! Yikes. Okay okay, I’m done with my rant on that.

My name is Mercedes and I’ve been in the biz since 2016 and couldn’t think of a better career for me. Unless it was like a professional taco taster but, here we are. I originally got into real estate because I love people and houses but it also created flexibility for me to raise my babies. Yes, two of them. And they’re both the sweetest gremlins you’ll ever meet. Real Estate and the people that come along with it have been one of the best things to happen to me. I am so grateful for all the experiences and the friendships I’ve made along the way. My clients are not just another transaction, they are my people. I care for them, fight for them and protect them. And of course, have a damn good time!

Thanks for being here and I look forward to you becoming one of my people, too.

From my heart to yours,


“Mercedes is truly the GOAT (literally, that is her name in my phone). Not only is she an incredible realtor, she’s an even better human being.

Being a first time home buyer was T E R R I F Y I N G but she put up with our anxiety with a giant smile and reassurance every single step of the way. Along with that, she broke down the process for us newbies in ways that made it easy for us to understand the crazy winding road from offer to closing.

She got us into our perfect starter house and a ridiculously incredible amazing deal when we sold that house – ya girl knows what she’s doing and truly does have your best interest at heart.

Listen, if you aren’t sold by now, then I’m going to bribe you with the amazing cookies Mercedes bakes for her clients. Because come on. Cookies. But that really is just an incredible bonus to a really smooth process, all thanks to Merc!!”

“Mercedes is truly amazing and has such a great energy! We met her at an open house and after chatting, we knew right away we wanted to work with her. As first time home buyers, we really appreciated her advice and guidance. Throughout our home buying process, Mercedes listened and respected our wants, needs, and wishes for our house, and we never felt pushed or prodded to make decisions. When we went under contract on our house, she advocated for us and got us what we needed. We’re very happy with our home and we’re so glad we went through this journey with Mercedes. We will definitely use Mercedes as our realtor in the future. We’d also recommend her to our closest friends and family.”

“Mercedes is some sort of magical being that made the process of buying a home a breeze! We put an offer in on an open house we went to on our first week of going out and looking at places and it was accepted! She was amazing at negotiating with the sellers and advocating for what was in our best interest, and even got us a credit for a new roof. As first time home buyers, she really took the time to explain our options and what each step was going to entail. She made the whole process so smooth, and we didn’t even meet her in person until key day. Seriously such a great experience! Highly recommend!”
