Broker, ABR, SRS

Hard working, personable, and ambitious are all words that perfectly describe Katie Slayden, Broker.

Originally from the big city of Long Beach, California, Katie made her way to the Pacific Northwest where she received her degree from the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon. From there, she began her television career in Portland at both KOIN-TV and Fox12 Oregon, covering many aspects of the craft including writing, producing and serving as on-air talent. Katie furthered her career by working as Senior Producer for Branded Entertainment for the media giant Meredith Corporation.

Katie and her family made the move to Corvallis in 2012 where her husband, Pete, drove his own stakes in town as a general contractor in residential construction. Watching Pete’s work from a unique perspective piqued Katie’s interest in real estate. Having the intimate knowledge of the hard work needed to build a home along with the understanding of what the buyer and seller want is what makes Katie the perfect fit as a Real Estate Broker. Her close connection to the mid-Willamette Valley made Town & Country Realty the perfect brokerage to call “home”.

Katie and her husband have three children, Emma (15), Gavin (12) and Jackson (6). The entire family developed a passion for skiing over the past few years, and Emma now races on the Corvallis High School Alpine Race Team. Gavin began his ski team career this season for Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation. In the summer months, the Slayden family likes to stay local and enjoy the beauty of Corvallis. Katie enjoys her garden, especially growing her own herbs and vegetables and incorporating them into her hobby of creating gourmet cuisine.


  • We would highly recommend Katie Slayden as a REALTOR® and give her 6 stars if we could! She is thorough, extremely responsive to questions and inquiries and totally professional. We were from out of state and purchased a home in Corvallis. Katie was available whenever we had questions and needed recommendations and that made the transaction easier and less stressful. Even after the sale closed Katie was very helpful with local recommendations and other support.
  • My company has worked with Katie Slayden on a professional level for years now. Her bright and sunny demeanor is always appreciated and we look forward to each listing she brings us to photograph. She pays instantly and there is never any drama. She is killing it in real estate and it is clear to see why. I would trust her with any of my own transactions.
  • Katie was our family’s REALTOR for three transactions this summer. Besides handling the real estate (two sales and one purchase) she was very hands on helping us clean and pack up one house and scheduling professional cleaning and landscaping for both sold properties. We have worked with several REALTORS over the years and have never had one actually get physically involved with the cleaning, packing and moving process. Her suggestions as to how to make both sold properties more appealing to a potential buyer we’re greatly appreciated. She is a great communicator who constantly kept us updated on the sales and purchasing progress. We will not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends. She will be our go-to REALTOR for any future real estate sales and purchases.
