      - Kira B. - Alameda, CA
    • Cathryn was fantastic! Absolutely none of the artifice I dealt with working with others before her. I met her at an open house where she was candid and affable. When I later reached out to her, she was mindful of my needs, present in our discussions and adeptly offered context and insight where needed. Cathryn was my bright star in the house buying process.

      - Joseph H. - Oakland, CA

In short, Cathryn went above and beyond my expectations and we'll definitely be seeking her out again!

    • Cathryn is a knowledgeable, ethical and responsive agent. She listens carefully to client needs and is very well informed about her profession and current events. She communicates clearly and consistently throughout the process, allowing the clint to make informed and timely decisions. She fights for her clients, and utilizes technology to get things done fast. For us, this made the difference in securing a home. I never felt frustrated with the long and complicated process of buying a home because Cathryn was always on top of things. We completely trusted her. You will have made your first smart move in the process of buying or selling your home if you can secure Cathryn as your agent.

      - Leanna L. - El Cerrito, CA
    • We had the pleasure of working with Cathryn over a period of 2 years to purchase the perfect house for us and we've never met any service provider more patient and responsive than Cathryn. She clearly had our best interests at heart and of all the agents we interviewed and tried to work with, she was the only one that wasn't trying to hurry us along through the transaction so she could move on to someone else. In fact, she is still in touch with us and patiently answering all our questions as new homeowners. We would never use anyone other than Cathryn. She's simply the best.

      - Furqan N. - San Leandro, CA
    • I have worked with over 50 agents and Cathryn is by far the best. As an Investor who needs 24hrs, around the clock service, it is tough to meet my demands, but Cathryn does with no complaints. She goes above and beyond for her clients. She is a rare agent, a one in a million.

      - Henry S. - Danville, CA
    • Cathryn was fantastic! This is the 3rd time I've used her services and will be using her in the future for any buying and selling I do. She is very responsive and honest. One of the greatest things about Cathryn is her unwavering positivity. Buying or selling can be a stressful and sometimes frustrating, Cathryn's positivity got me through some rough times.Cathryn goes above and beyond to make sure that the photos are amazing, the marketing is creative and that if there is something I don't understand she explains it and makes sure that I feel comfortable. I really can't say enough positive things to truly explain how wonderful she is as an agent.

      - Elisabeth T. - Oakland, CA
    • We absolutely LOVE our realtor Cathryn! She is the best and super knowledgeable. She doesnt pressure you into something youre not ready or comfortable whether its the home itself or writing offers with contingencies. We feel confident and have our best shot with Cathryn in our corner!

      - Thomas C. - Hayward, CA
    • Cathryn has been a rock throughout our entire house hunting journey. Shes honest, responsive, and diligent. We know our budget wasnt as big as other buyers in the market but she made us feel like we were her only clients in terms of her time and attention. Could not recommend her highly enough.

      - Roisin H. - Berkeley, CA
    • Cathryn was the best! We were first time homebuyers, which means we had many many questions along the way which she didn't make us feel dumb for asking. She met with us several times to look at houses over the course of about 3-4 months and was always available via phone/text. She knows Alameda well and didn't shy away from giving us the scoop when something in a house wasn't up to snuff. Her expert eye spotted things we wouldn't have known to look for on our own. Unlike a few other agents we talked to, she didn't feel like a "salesperson" but more like a friendly expert that truly wanted to help us find the right home to start our family.

      - Allison G. - Alameda, CA
    • Cathryn was very helpful coordinating my purchase, and listened to my wishes. She has a habit of making me feel like her only client, which is great for confidence when dealing with real estate. Further, she connected me with a mortgage broker at my request, and while the deal Cathryn and I did was all cash, I'm about to close on a refinance of another property using her contact.All of which is indicative of Cathryn listening carefully, knowing her client, and providing resources to execute. I will definitely use her when it comes time to sell this or ANY property!

      - Brian G. - Alameda, CA
    • We've worked with Cathryn to buy our starter home back in 2018, and when it came time to upgrade to a bigger place, the obvious choice was to work with her again. She makes the process so easy and is great at communicating all the details along the way. She's also very personable, and fun to work with - would highly recommend!

      - Dana R. - Emeryville, CA
    • Cathryn is an expert! We sold this house from 3,000 miles away and she made this the easiest transaction ever! She went out of her way to explain everything and let us know all of our options. I highly recommend Cathryn!

      - Sommer G. - Hayward, CA
    • Cathryn was referred to us by a friend who bought a house with her. As first time home buyers, we were looking for a pro who knows real estate inside and out - and would be responsive and patient to all of our questions. From the start Cathryn was kind, efficient and just plain effective. Our friends that referred us had visited 80+ houses with Cathryn and took their time - but with us, things moved FAST. Within 10 days of our first call with Cathryn we had placed an offer on the house we ended up buying. From day one we were able to trust Cathryn to have our best interests at heart. Moving quickly as soon as we found the house we wanted to move forward with simply felt natural - and Cathryn was able to answer our questions every step of the way. Cathryn helped us navigate a tricky situation with solar panels, and had a colleague of hers show us around houses when she was unavailable. I would highly recommend Cathryn to anyone looking to buy a house in the bay area.

      - Joseph B. - El Sobrante, CA
    • Cathryn is the BEST. She is super knowledgable and a fantastic person to have in your corner during a home search or sale. She demystified the process of writing offers in the very competitive Bay Area and was always went through extra mile to make sure I had all the information I needed.

      - Nat C. - Oakland, CA
    • Cathryn is one of the best real estate agents I have worked with. She is kind and professional. At each step in the process, she guided and listened to us with care, giving us great advice while showing respect for our plans and wishes. From the moment we met her, her humor and cheerfulness lit up the room. I recommend Cathryn to every seller or buyer. Youll get a genuine, caring, and deeply professional agent. Thank you, Cathryn!

      - Steve M. - San Leandro, CA
    • Cathryn is a consummate professional who knows exactly what needs to be done, and does it with casual aplomb. She impressed my wife and I from the first time we spoke to her, and walked us through the selling process in a measured way, making sure that we understood what was going on every step of the way. Whats more, she made sure our expectations for timing and sale price were realistic - backed up by market data and her own experience - and when our house sold it turns out she had been absolutely right about what it would go for and when.I cannot recommend Cathryn highly enough, and would go to her first if I were going to buy or sell a house in her area again.
