Katie Kurtz

Born and raised in Minnesota, I spent my time as a kid building forts with my brothers and playing outside. I have a creative mind and I’m always looking for the next project! As the wife of a residential plumber, my husband and I became quite the renovation team over the last 12+ years when we teamed up on our first investment property at the age of 22. Combining my kitchen & bath design training with his construction skills we have completed many whole home renovations, creating a small business that eventually grew and became my boutique design firm, Adorned Homes. 4 years ago I became a realtor and started providing my slew of experience to clients.

Competing on a national reality television show pushed us to expand what we were already doing. The show featured us and 2 other teams competing to renovate 3 homes in Cincinnati. The experience opened us up to alternative ideas on the way we design and renovate a home but also gave us a glimpse into the world of television which was fast paced and focused on storylines. The word “flipper” makes me cringe, which is why we only do about 1 investment property per year! We focus on quality over quantity.

Luxury, Quality, Integrity. I strive to help my clients create a lifestyle. A lifestyle that promotes ease of daily living and beauty in their surroundings. My clients lifestyle is the first thought in the home we find and create together. Best said by Coco Chanel “Luxury has to be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”! The goal is to create a home that provides function & comfort as well as beauty! Katie received training in kitchen & bath design from the NKBA and has over 12 years of experience in renovations of investment properties. Combining her design training with her experience in thoughtful renovations and the resale of a home at a profit.

Many people have a hard time finding a home that hits every mark on their “wish” list. I specialize in working with real estate clients looking to purchase a home and then renovate to make it their own. Whether the renovation just includes new paint and decor or a complete overhaul I can continue to assist my clients even after the closing.

When working with sellers I am able to assert my design and investment property skills in prepping their home to sell with proven staging techniques and simple updates. These services are a huge added benefit to sellers and are provided with all listings. I look at a home as a product; it needs to appeal to people visually, be marketable and the best option for a buyer.

I reside in the north-eastern suburbs with my husband and our puppy, Turtle, a giant 2 year old English bulldog that I can’t get enough of.. Traveling is hands down my favorite past time as well as hanging out by the fireplace on snowy winter days with Dan and Turtle (binging on Netflix).
Katie has been featured in numerous print and online publications for her work in the design and renovation industry, including the Pioneer Press, Star Tribune and Midwest Home online. She is the past VP of Communications for the Minnesota chapter of the NKBA as well as the former staging instructor for the Preservation Alliance of MN.
