..2 times as the buyer and 1 time as the seller. Cathy is a consummate professional who brings a high level of skill and strategy to table. In both cases as the buyer, we went into multiple-offer scenarios and came out on top because Cathy spent time to understand the seller's motivations and then shape our offers to stand out (in ways other than just offering top price). With the sale of our house, she poured the full weight of her resources into pre-marketing and a grand open house, and we sold after the first weekend! Cathy is attentive, diligent and responsive when you reach out to her. All this AND she's a really nice person. We highly recommend Cathy!
Very knowledgeable about the market and a true hustler. She goes above and beyond and is extremely responsive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to a friend or colleague.
We recommend her wholeheartedly!
She is a very gracious, thoughtful and experienced agent whom I would highly recommend to my friends.
Her knowledge of the housing market and professionalism were exceptional. We will definitely refer her to all of our friends.
The way she helped us prep the house and then did the marketing for it resulted in a buyer after just 4 days. She is the one you need when time and money are critical.
She was very knowledgeable on all of Irvine's availability and suggested we check out a home that wasn't on the market yet. We loved it and bought it practically on the same day we saw it. Cathy is always available, calls back almost immediately and was very helpful in finding us people to check out the house, ie. inspectors, roofers, A/C etc. I also enjoyed working with her team from Hallmark Escrow, really sharp ladies and also very willing to help out with the closing. I would definitely use Cathy again for any other real estate in the future.
She is patient, easygoing, professional and the the best realtor we have ever worked with. If you plan on purchasing or selling a home on Orange County we highly recommend Cathy.
She is very professional, thorough and knowledgeable of the area. Aware of fair market price and really good in negotiations. She kept us informed of the pluses and minuses of homes we looked at which helped us make that important decision. Highly recommended. ????????
She made every experience so easy for me and I was so happy with her service and result that I got after purchasing and selling my properties.
We had hired another agent and were very unhappy. When the listing expired we hired Cathy who did all the right steps to market our home and we ended up with an offer that was $130,000 higher than the only offer we had when we were listed with another agent a few months before. In addition we got the offer the first weekend we put the house back on the market with Cathy. If you are looking for a great realtor that can truly make a difference, look no further than Cathy.
We had another agent prior to finding you who tried to sell the home and the difference was amazing. Your marketing, communication and constant focus on the sale of our home were what got the job done. Thanks again.
Many agents I work with as a foreclosure listing agent don't protect their client's interests but you do and still manage to work through the obstacles to get the deal closed.
It was a pleasure working with you. The whole process starting from looking for houses till closing was smooth and not at all stressful because of your help. It is imperative to have a real estate agent who can respond at a moment's notice and assist in overcoming obstacles during the home buying process. Fortunately, you had it all :) We would gladly recommend you to anyone looking to buy a home.
We certainly would have lost the house to foreclosure without your help. We are both very happy with the way things worked out and would not hesitate to recommend you.
You were able to get me a home that appraised for $40K more than what I paid, got the seller to pay all my closing costs and then even got them to agree to do repairs when they had indicated that the property was being sold ?As-Is?. You are truly a cut above most realtors.
She has really streamlined the real-estate process to make it as pain-free as possible. We were reminded at every step of the things that we needed to take care of. Our experience with her has been so great that it's one of the main reasons that we have recommended Cathy to many of our friends.
You delivered on everything promised, and even more. You were always available to answer our questions or help us move through the entire purchase process without any problems. You definitely earned our respect and trust. Therefore, we will be happy to recommend you to others, and gladly do more business with you in the future. Thank You!
Her knowledge and experience in the local market, professionalism and sincerity left us a deep impression. During the cooperation, she demonstrated accurate judgment, high skills in communication, and focus on details, which were very helpful for the quick win. She also leads a very efficient team who always responded promptly and put our needs in the first place. We greatly appreciate their help in our home purchase experience. Wish you and your team good luck, Cathy!
She educated us on the market and availability. Then she helped us find and negotiate the perfect unit. She then was one step ahead on everything through the escrow process. She was always there to answer my questions and "hold my hand" through all of the steps of the sale. I highly recommend her!
She is an excellent professional . She knows exactly what to do and when. She is so professional from beginning to end. Love the way She describes things and how organized She is. If I have to sell my house again or buy a new place, I defiantly will choose her again.
Both transactions were completed quickly with minimal stress and greater than anticipated financial return. Cathy's knowledge, integrity, work ethic and excellent people skills make working with her a pleasure. I would highly recommend her.
She sold it quickly and at a good price. And, she did this while we were in the process of moving 3000 miles away. Cathy was professional, caring, and always working to get us the best possible results. Cathy is the best real estate sales agent we have ever experienced - and that includes agents from quite a few transactions as well as meeting additional agents at open houses. Please wish the buyers happiness and good fortune. And ask them to take good care of the house we raised our family in. It was a great house (and community) for us. Thank you so much, Cathy!!!".
We purchased a condo and she made us feel like we were buying a multi-million dollar home. She was very attentive to all our needs and addressed any and all of our concerns no matter how big or small with diligence, haste and ease. She made the experience for us as first-time home buyers very comfortable. If you are in the market to buy a home we highly recommend Cathy. She will give you the attention and service any home buyer deserves! Thank you Cathy for helping us find our perfect home!
I feel very happy that I decided to work with Cathy to buy my first home. As first time home buyer, I had lot of questions. She answered all my questions patiently and helped me every step of the home buying process. She is very thorough and explained everything when we are viewing the houses, submitting offer and the process after offer is accepted. She is very quick in responding to my text messages and emails. I will definitely recommend her to my friends. Obviously I will work with her again in future if I need help. Thank you, Cathy for your help and beautiful gift basket you sent to us.
