We were first-time homebuyers. We began our home buying venture on a very tight timeline and in a tricky market, and were still living (far) out of state for most of the process. From the moment that she began working with us, Cathy was there for us. She earned our trust and respect immediately. She took wonderful care of us when we were in town, showing us the area, visiting house after house, and translating the home buying process with bottomless patience. Cathy’s years of experience shine through as she tours houses with her clients – her understanding of all aspects of real estate is both deep and up-to-date. When we weren’t in town, Cathy went above and beyond to keep the search going – day after day, tirelessly. She worked closely with us around our schedule to make sure that we stayed on track and that she could be there whenever we made it back to town. Cathy smoothed out every part of the process that could have been stressful, including negotiations. Time and time again we reflected (and have continued to reflect!) on how fortunate we were that someone recommended Cathy to us. Now, we cannot recommend her highly enough ourselves. We would work with her again in a heartbeat.
