"Catherine did an outstanding job finding and successfully closing our new home in Elmhurst. It is a new construction home so there were a lot of details that she had to deal with for us. She was very helpful with putting together a punch list, arranging inspections, working with our attorney and the seller/builder to get everything done before closing."

"Catherine was very helpful in working with me to analyze my property for sale. Her access to research on condominiums in the area was key in setting the asking price.

Professionally taken pictures of the unit while furnished and presenting them in a professional manner in the unit literature and posting was helpful in generating interest among buyers.
After listing the property, she was very responsive in keeping me up to date on progress and showings.

Catherine helped tie up loose ends as closing approached. All in all, my relationship with Catherine was very professional and I would recommend her services."

"As a first time homebuyer I couldn’t have been luckier to be able to have Catherine working with me. Not only was she able to help me quickly find a place that I absolutely love, but she had all of the answers to every question I could ask. When a small hiccup threatened to slow down my purchase, she was right there helping resolve it faster than I ever would have expected possible. From the first viewing until after the closing, Catherine treated me like family! I couldn’t have asked for a better buying experience, and it was thanks to Catherine!"

"Catherine is very knowledgeable and professional. She helped me with two very stressful situations and was totally patient with us! Most recently she helped us with a short sale property. She referred us to a great team of experts. With some prayers and a lot hard work they all made it happen. None of it could have been possible without Catherine. Thank you again."
