About

My name is Cathy Haney and I am a real estate broker, not just an agent, with an MBA and over 20 years  experience in the Orange County real estate industry.  I am ranked locally and nationally in the top 1% of agents.  I sell 15 times more homes than my fellow local agents.  In addition to my knowledge and resources, honesty, ingenuity and great communication are keys to my success.  

I have a wealth of resources, experience and expertise to offer you including access to "Not On The Internet Yet" homes which gives you a huge advantage in knowing about a home before the general public does and/or selling your home privately should you choose to do that.

I grew up in and currently live and work in Irvine.  As a result I am extremely familiar with each neighborhood, amenities, schools, parks, stores, etc. 

I write an occasional article on real estate that appears in the OC Register and the Irvine World News and have been a guest on several radio shows to discuss real estate.  In addition, I am a certified short sale & foreclosure resource specialist (SFR) by the National Association of Realtors. 

I work days, nights and weekends and am committed to doing a fabulous job for all of my clients. What I promise is personal care and outstanding service; backed by thorough research, in depth knowledge of the market and exceptional negotiation skills. Last but not least, I am personally always available to you and return every call promptly. I would be happy to take a few minutes to talk with you and find out if I can help or just answer any questions you may have. You can reach me at 714-404-1450 or cathyhaney@firstteam.com.

Background

Since her youth, Cathy has been defined by her intelligence, her drive, and her determination—a few of the characteristics that got her into UC Berkeley, where she completed her undergraduate business degree and subsequently earned her broker’s license. After spending several years working in the banking and lending industry, holding a position at a national auditing company, Cathy decided to earn her MBA—and being pregnant with her first child and working full-time did not slow her down. Upon finishing grad school, she made another important decision to enter the residential real estate industry. Immediately, Cathy made a name for herself with her unique combination of financial expertise, business sense, and market knowledge—and, as a result, her career took off quickly. “Clients tell me that I offer a higher caliber of service than they’ve experienced in the past," Cathy explained. “I simply set out to deliver the level of accountability, service and results I’d expect myself from a real estate agent."
