Kat Larkin & Tom Steck
Real Estate Champions

Kathryn is a Florida native, having been born right here in St. Petersburg! Her family moved to Atlanta during middle school and then after college she followed her dreams to New York City and Los Angeles.

She went into retail management working her way up to district manager in high-end ladies’ wear stores. She held positions in various chains for over 30 years before returning to her home here in Florida. She was the “go to” manager to turn poor performing stores into top rated stores!

She saw the opportunities available in real estate, and with her excellent customer service skills, has been a successful Realtor serving the Tampa Bay area for over 23 years! Her negotiating skills can be counted on to get you the best possible price on your home, whether you are the buyer or seller.

Kathryn is a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). This designation is the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents! Less than 6% of realtors nationwide hold this prestigious designation. Kathryn is also immensely proud to be a Member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. This has been a big benefit when selling high-end properties on the beach and intracoastal communities.

After dealing with all the complexities of watching her grandmother and mother age and needing to find quality services for her, she decided to get her Senior Residential Specialist Designation (SRES). Kathryn was able to help her family through this challenging time and is now the resource for her senior clients.

She is most proud of being a “Big Sister” with the Big Brother Big Sister program of Pinellas. She also served as VP and Board member of Girl’s Inc. Recently, she joined Meals on Wheels as a driver for the seniors in need in her community.


Tom has been a resident of Pinellas County for over 40 years and has watched Pinellas County grow from a peninsula dotted with orange groves and two-lane roads to the bustling urban area it is today!  From condos to new homes to Sears catalog houses, from beaches to downtown, Tom brings knowledge of the area one can only get one way- by having been here!

Prior to working in real estate, Tom worked in government. First, with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in Washington. Then after returning to Florida, he provided program guidance and interpretation to staff at the Florida Department of Children and Families. Then he taught teens at risk of dropping out of school, and finally served as a social worker with Pinellas County.

Tom holds many designations. He is most proud of, The Graduate, Realtor Institute (GRI) certification, the most prestigious designation available to a realtor, signifying demonstrated competence in many areas of knowledge in real estate. The second is the Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE) certification which indicates extensive training in negotiations. He also holds the Commitment to Excellence (C2EX) Endorsement, from NAR, the National Association of Realtors. Few, Realtors carry this endorsement!

Tom is President Elect of the Pinellas County Realtor Organization. He is also Past Chairman of the Public Policy Committee. He is a former Secretary and Board member of CASA and served as Vice Chair of the 2015-2016 Pinellas County Charter Review Commission. As you can see, he believes in giving back to his community!
