We could not have asked for a better, more professional realtor! She found a qualified renter/buyer for us that rented our house for 1 year, and then purchased our house. She was very knowledgeable about the area, the market, and the entire selling process. We would highly recommend her to our friends and family, or anyone looking to sell their house.
She arranged cleaning and repair services, paid bills for us and picked up our mail. She was a joy to work with.
I followed these suggestions to do exterior painting and tuckpointing. She was very responsive when I had questions. When I received an offer, Catherine have me very good advice. When the inspection shoes a problem, she very calmly suggested the solution.
I came from North Carolina to take care of a house to sell in Oak Park and Catherine was so helpful with EVERYTHING! Thank you so much Catherine for all your hard work!
Her professional expertise and advise has a proven track record with me! My most recent experience was a listing to close in 43 days! I'm very pleased and would recommend Catherine emphatically
She was able to help us get everything fixed and ready, and all under Berwyn Village requirements. She was so helpful throughout every step. We so so so highly recommend Catherine to anyone who is looking for a realtor.
She is amazingly attentive to the smallest detail, follows through without fail, and creates solutions where there are roadblocks. She gets things done ahead of time and anticipates and proactively addresses problems. A great agent with whom to work!
She has decades of experience, and as first time sellers, she walked us through each step of the process. Within two weeks of meeting her, she had helped us find a wonderful painter, professional photographer, and had our condo on the market. Her background in design was helpful in staging our condo, and she met with us multiple times to personally oversee the process. She was also very responsive in communicating with us, and she was a tough negotiator when we received multiple offers within the first two weeks of listing. We appreciated the marketing strategies employed by Baird and Warner, and both Baird and Warner and Catherine were a delight to work with. Would highly recommend Catherine, especially in the Oak Park area. Such a pleasure to work with her!
She maintained a sense of humor as well and kept us going with "I will find the right home for you." And she did. Thank you very much, Catherine. You have made us very happy with our new home in Westchester! Warm regards, Robyn Guest
She was very professional and highly knowledgable of the local market area. We really enjoyed her attentiveness, and we experienced her negotiating skills up close. On a more personal level, we were especially grateful for her personal relational approach.
Thanks for all your help!
She was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Not only did she get my condo sold in three weeks, she went above and beyond by helping me get all the repairs taken care of before the closing when I had a family emergency. She's been a part of the Oak Park community for a long time and really knows the area. There is no part of the process that did not go smoothly with her help! I highly recommend her!
We were operating under a tight timeline and Catherine was able to work within our budget and help us find a home in a very short time. We are very appreciative of her efforts and the way she managed the process. Uche
She knows real estate inside and out and I knew I was in good hands every step of the way.
I knew right off when speaking with her initially that she was the right agent for us. Her experience, knowledge of the area and sense of humour all work together and make her the best. Searching for a home in a week for relocation is long days, she kept our spirits up and really listened to what we needed and what we wanted and was able to accommodate it all. We had an interesting challenge in that my husband is 6'9" so many of the basements of the homes she showed us he was not able to stand up. . .she kept a great sense of humour about it and kept us motivated to find the right house. By the end of the week we felt we had a new friend in Catherine.
She was professional, knowledgeable and responsive
Catherine was great at communicating/explaining every step of my buying process which made it so much easier.
Her efforts earned us a better price than we anticipated and she shielded us from several stressful situations that often accompany negotiations. Thank you, thank you!
An excellent negotiator, she is also resourceful, highly informed, attentive. Working with her is all around a pleasure.
She knows local market very well and sold house quickly.
She drove us around and managed last minute showing changes, she worked late on Friday night when we put our offer on the home, she addressed all concerns immediately and whenever i called, she was quick to make herself available. I would definitely recommend her to another relocation client or to anybody else!
She was with us every step of the way, I can't say enough good things about the experience and the results!
I would highly recommend her to anyone that is selling property or buying property. She went above and beyond in helping to sell my mother's condo. I live out of town and she made the process as easy as possible even being out of town most of the time. Thank you!
I would highly recommend her.
We were first-time homebuyers, and Catherine was incredibly patient and thorough with us. She is extremely responsive, and has a great working knowledge of the Oak Park real estate market. We would absolutely work with her again, and refer people we know if they are looking in the area.
She made daily trips to the property to monitor it for us and kept us abreast of anything we needed to know, she was excellent. We won't be using our agent again only because we've moved 400 miles away, otherwise we would gladly use her again.
She definitely knows the area and gave me some good tips for living in the area and places to go visit as well. I appreciate all of her help! I will not be buying properties in the city but would recommend Catherine if someone asked for assistance.
She was diligent in her representation of me and negotiated the price effectively. Good communication skills.
She was not only responsive and helpful, but an outstanding negotiator who got us a deal on our home. Definitely one of the best I've ever worked with.
I could not have navigated the complexities of buying a bank owned home with an FHA loan without her knowledge and expertise. Her professionalism and knowledge was invaluable and she went above and beyond helping us. Thank you!
We came running into town, and she helped us find a house without the drop of a hat. House shopping with kids is never easy, but Catherine was very patient with my boys and understood they had limits. We are very grateful we got matched up with Catherine, and can't wait to show pictures of when we are done!
I appreciate all her help.
She is very knowledgeable of the area and knows everyone in town. We would recommend Catherine to anyone buying or selling!
I can't express enough how professional, efficient and such a pleasure to work with Catherine was. I would recommend Catherine to anyone who asks me for a suggestion for a realtor. She really did the impossible and I am totally impressed!
She demonstrated remarkable skill and patience as together we worked to learn what I wanted in a new home. Catherine loves a good price and endeared in me her philosophy of buying the right property; a property that was appealing to me and fit my lifestyle, with good value now, and with good future resale value. With similar mind set, we visited an extensive number of properties and housing options throughout the region, and as I lived the roller coaster of emotion involved in picking a new place, Catherine was incredibly responsive and kind, always with a friendly smile, and with several more properties to look at. When I found "The" place, Catherine worked quickly and tirelessly to get an offer to the seller, negotiate a great price, and close the deal. After closing, Catherine remained by my side as we endured inspections, further negotiations, and even helped to provide excellent mortgage and real estate attorney. It is obvious that Catherine loves her job - there is no other way I can imagine should could sustain the energy and enthusiasm she puts into being an absolutely fantastic Real Estate Agent.
We're so grateful!
She did such a great job for us, going above and beyond the call of duty and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Catherine is incredibly patient; I had specific criteria for the house I wanted, and we looked for over 3 years! She was enthusiastic and earnestly searched for houses for us to look at that fit my spec's every few weeks. Any time I had a question and sent a text or left a message, Catherine responded very quickly. Once we found THE ONE, she held my hand and with her depth of knowledge and experience, guided us through the purchase process. My emotions would get the best of me from time to time, and she was just great. Catherine is a delightful person to work with and I have already recommended her to several friends who are looking to move.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone. We first made contact with her thinking that it may take a long time to find a good place for us, and the whole process only took a couple of weeks! We ended up getting into one of the properties we walked through the first day we met Catherine. She worked really hard for us to not only negotiate the price but also to make sure that things were in order for us to move it.
She took the time to listen to what I wanted and understood my concerns. She is an excellent agent.
She stuck with us for 3 years until we finally found the right house. She is personable, friendly, and easy to work with.
