Our home sold within the first week on the market because she knew the market and knew what it would sell for. Our home had multiple offers and she did an amazing job of negotiating the best deal for us. She is extremely responsive and will go the extra mile to make sure you understand what is happening throughout the sales process. I couldn't be more happy with the decision of selecting her as our realtor. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home. Heather P., West Lafayette IN
She cares for her customers as people and thinks outside the box to help minimize our risks and maximize our returns. We never have to hunt her down as she is responsive, proactive in her communication, and anticipates things very well. Catherine adds value through her strategies and actions; not just relying on low price to make a sale. She is a trusted advisor that helps facilitate important decisions and not just another agent there to shuffle the paperwork. We are fans, as it is an awesome experience - every time with Catherine! Seller, West Lafayette IN
As our listing agent, Catherine's experience & knowledge of the local market is unparalleled. From price, timing to staging of our home, she went above & beyond. Throughout the entire process she maintained regular communication and ensured we knew what was going on from the day we listed to the day we closed. We can't thank her enough for such an outstanding job! Seller, West Lafayette IN
She responded to questions immediately and worked to get the house sold quickly. Catherine was able to work with a challenging buyer and negotiate an amazing counter offer, which the buyer accepted, when it looked like a mutually acceptable agreement was impossible. Catherine is an experienced, knowledgeable professional and I recommend her highly and without reservation. Seller, Lafayette IN
Her knowledge, friendliness and expertise made it a pleasure working with her. She listened to what we were looking for and found home that matched our preferences. She refined the search based on what we liked and didn't like on our initial searches. She helped us throughout the entire process, especially helpful since we were moving from out of town. We would highly recommend her, a real pleasure working with her. Don D., West Lafayette IN
Her understanding of the local market, hard work and professionalism enabled us to make a profit and sell our home within 2 weeks. I highly recommend Catherine. Shane P., West Lafayette IN
She is very familiar with the West Lafayette area. Our house sold in 9 days!! This is our 7th house to sell and we are used to bumps in the road, especially with inspectors and other realtors. This time was no exception and Catherine handled it with an assertive, calm, level head. Selling and buying a house is one of the most stressful experiences in life and Catherine is a strong knowledgeable realtor. Catherine will be an advocate for you and your family. She will address concerns and rectify issues within her control. We are very thankful for Catherine and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy their home. Krista Ann, West Lafayette IN
She was so patient and highly skilled though out the entire process in both listing and selling of a home for us and then with our buying a new home. She had incredible negotiating skills through both transactions and was always immediately responsive to any needs and questions that we had. She made the process so much easier for us than it would have been without her expertise. We would highly recommend her to anyone with needs in the real estate market. C. Brown, Lafayette IN
Catherine worked with my husband and me for almost a year and a half while we looked for a house! If I had to put a number on it, we probably looked at 100+ homes. That being said, it was not by any means Catherine’s fault that we were looking for this long, or at that many; we’re very picky people and we wanted to find the perfect, historic fixer-upper (if there ever was one) on the market. We had four Lafayette realtors before her and I was almost at my breaking point with house-hunting. Much to my relief, we met Catherine and we fell in love with her passion immediately. We had house-showings with her almost routinely, sometimes looking at a house two and three times over. During this time, Catherine got to know us very well. She knew exactly what we were looking for and would give us advice on each house based on our styles and needs. Due to my husband’s work schedule we were frantically setting up showings, but she pulled them through every time; almost always at a moment’s notice and sometimes only a few hours ahead of time. When it came down to buying, it seemed as though my husband and I were making our decision an hour too late. Every. Time. But she stuck it out with us; every bid, every loss, every pull-out. After what seemed like forever, we found a house. Catherine was just as excited about this house as we were; she invests herself in her clients so much deeper than other realtors you’ll find. As soon as we walked up to the house I knew I wanted it. Everything about this house was perfect. She wrote up a bid for us and we went back and forth with the seller a few times, but Catherine held our bid strong and they accepted! Now it’s time for the hard part: closing. The seller of our house was a complete pain in the rear to be honest. When Catherine sent our agreement, the seller countered with a 60-page agreement saying the exact same thing, in her own words. This seemed to be a recurring theme, but Catherine didn’t break her professional attitude even once and took care of every last detail for us. It was so stress-free that we barely felt like we were buying a house! We experienced terrible realtors so that you, as a buyer or a seller, don’t have to. Trust me when I say that Catherine is THE best realtor hands-down. Tanisha V.
She was very professional throughout and responded immediately to all of our calls, text messages and emails, even when she was on a very short vacation with her family! We are very satisfied with the entire process of selling our home through Catherine. Seller, Lafayette IN
Since I do not know the real estate market and since this was the first time I was selling a house, I relied on her for advice on all aspects of the process, including pricing. Before hiring her, I interviewed several other real estate agents. In the end, the amount for which my house was sold was higher than the initial listing price proposed by other agents---and Catherine managed to get it done in under four months total time from listing to closing. I was away for most of this time, and Catherine handled everything. When the eventual buyer demanded improvements and wouldn't settle for a reduced sale price, Catherine supervised the required improvements. There were several other difficulties caused by the buyer which Catherine handled with grace and to my complete satisfaction. Throughout the entire process---listing, showing, inspection, negotiations with the buyer, repairs, preparation for closing, Catherine was always helpful and very responsive---all my emails and text messages would be answered very quickly, regardless of the hours or whether it was during a weekday or weekend. I would recommend Catherine in the strongest possible terms. Seller, Lafayette IN
Her breadth of knowledge and her willingness to go FAR above and beyond the standard expectations classify her as not only our favorite realtor, but more importantly a trusted friend and resource whenever we have a real estate question.
Catherine has helped our family with buying, selling and even a contract purchase on five real estate transactions over the past six years. Prior to meeting Catherine we did work with a few other local realtors on a home sale and the lack of communication was maddening. Once Catherine came along, we realized just how important it is to work with someone in whom you can put your trust. She always delivered incredible service with clearly communicated information!
Some families have an accountant or attorney on speed dial~ we have Catherine. If you are looking for a local realtor, give her a call or send her an email. You will be so thankful that you saved yourself from what could be a revolving door of real estate agents to represent you in your home buying and selling process. Kirsten S., Lafayette IN
Our market time was only 5 days! She is always available and will put in the extra time and effort to ensure a flawless sale. Catherine is the only realtor I would recommend! We could not be more impressed and thankful. Seller, Lafayette IN
She was recommended to us by many people who had nothing but great things to say about her. Catherine listened to our needs and definitely helped us make the best choice. This was our first time buying and we are in a house that is beyond anything we could have dreamed of. Catherine is personable, knowledgeable and she has great relationships with people in town who one comes in contact with when buying a house. We are so thankful for her and have been recommending her to everyone we come in contact with, even if they are not buying!:) Buyer, Lafayette IN
She was actually the real estate agent for the house owner. She was very flexible showing the house to us and we could tell she was very knowledgeable when she answered questions about the house and the procedures of buying the house. We decided not to get our own real estate agent, but to use Catherine as our agent. She was extremely fair and honest in the price negotiation of the house. She was helpful in identifying minor problems with the house and then obtaining reliable repair and service personnel to quickly fix all of the problems. She negotiated for the house owner to provide us with a house insurance policy that would cover any problems with the house that might incur during the first year that we owned the house. Catherine communicated with us continuously and kept us informed through the whole house-buying process. She was at closing with us and was very informed of all the legal requirements of purchasing a home. She made the process of buying our house an exciting, fun, and enjoyable process. We recommend Catherine to all the persons that we know who are thinking of buying a house. Seller, Lafayette IN
She persevered through difficult negotiations, caught errors on the closing documents and even helped us when an 'after purchase' issue arose. I highly recommend her for anyone buying or selling a home. Jamie L, Lafayette IN
We have sold two homes with her and are getting ready to enlist her help to purchase another home. She is not just our agent anymore - she has become a very dear friend. If you are in need of a great realtor who goes the extra mile we highly recommend Catherine. You won't be disappointed! Darla, Lafayette IN
A true expert in her field. We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, honest, professional, and patient realtor. Catherine not only listed our home which she successfully sold a few months back, but has been working with us for the past 8-9 months to help us find our "forever" home. We just recently found that home and with Catherine's excellent advice, our first offer was accepted. We are now weeks away from closing on our "forever" home!! Buyer & Seller, Lafayette IN
