Kathy McDonald
Kathy McDonald -Transaction Manager

Kathy, brings a wealth of knowledge to Coaching to Close and to the facilitation of the contract to closing process. Her efforts, working with a success-driven team, help people reach their real estate goals.

Growing up in south Florida, Kathy relocated to Jacksonville in 1988 and she could not be happier with the change. Married for over 20 years to the love of her life, they have two sons. One currently attending college in Ohio and the other heading to the Navy.

With a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from The University of North Florida, Kathy quickly knew she wanted to put this degree to work. Having worked in the real estate industry for most of her career, Kathy is no stranger to the closing process. Starting as a mortgage loan processor and then later as a conversion consultant for leading a mortgage servicing company. It was following a position as a marketing coordinator for a local real estate firm that Kathy knew she wanted to get her license. Soon after, she passed the Florida Real Estate exam and became a licensed Florida REALTOR. Kathy went on to work shortly for a local builder before finding her new work home here with Welch Team.

Meghan and her family moved to Florida from Colorado. The cross country move gave her the opportunity to get out of the medical field, and back into an industry she loved. Having previous experience in Real Estate, she passed the Florida Real Estate Exam and became a Licensed Florida Real Estate Agent. Meghan is highly trained in the Buying and Selling process. She is here to manage the paperwork and deadlines from the time the offer is accepted, to the day of closing.
