Recognized as one of Orange County’s most dedicated real estate professionals, Machoskie has built a solid team of licensed real estate professionals. Her marketing efforts evolve from a client-centric approach by first establishing her clients’ needs and then creating a personalized plan to meet those needs. What sets the Machoskie & Associates team apart from other teams is Katie’s hands-on approach, in which she conducts property showings, and negotiates and manages every sale. “I think it’s critical to provide clients with my expertise and personal attention in each transaction. My team assists me in back office work and research, which frees me to spend time with each client and property. I take a limited amount of listings, so I can maintain my commitment to a personalized approach.” Katie’s profound knowledge of Orange County communities is due in part to her deep roots as a Southern California native. She has resided in Newport Beach for the past 21 years. While Katie holds considerable experience in coastal communities such as Newport Beach, Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach, her knowledge reaches beyond these areas as an agent for several families with homes throughout Orange County. Katie attended UCLA and has an extensive marketing and public relations background for Fortune 500 companies, the entertainment industry, and many nonprofit organizations, raising over $200 million in donations during her non-profit career. As a planned gift specialist, her extensive experience evaluating and managing gifts of real estate to nonprofit organizations developed an invaluable network of contacts she maintains today. Katie and her team work tirelessly and have established a work ethic that exemplifies a constant effort to provide the very best in service. Each client’s home is marketed to its fullest potential and sold at its highest attainable price in the most efficient manner. Recognized for her hard work and success, Katie is a 2013 nominee for the Orange County Business Journal’s Women In Business Awards.
Below are a few notes from satisfied clients:
- “Not only did you list and market our home efficiently, you brought real buyers to see it!”

- “I thought you were one of the best and most knowledgeable agents that I have ever met. I have been in the biz for 15 plus years, and worked in loans and appraisal before that, so I should know. You are the best.”
- "I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You pulled a rabbit out of the hat and found us a buyer in 24 hours. We had a smooth sale and bought the house of our dreams. We love our new home. Thank you."
