We could not have made a better choice in our decision to use Cat as our real estate agent. The cat was a professional in every sense throughout the process of my wife and I bought our first home: Any questions/requests/observations we had were responded to promptly and with clear care and thought. Home tours and discussion was great: she offered well reasoned expert opinions that informed our decision making and let us evaluate houses more clearly ourselves, rather than pushing us in a specific direction. The bidding/negotiating process was handled expertly as well; Cat used to research and her professional expertise to come to a logical bid # that got us our home at a price well below where our inexperience and excitement might have otherwise pointed us. Of course, results can always vary but we could not have been more pleased with her 'process' here. I think the best feedback I can give is that Cat's level of service and professionalism made what is initially a 'scary' process full of uncertainty and gaps of knowledge (on our part) and enabled us to make an intelligent, educated home-buying decision that we felt and still feel 100% comfortable and happy with. I'd recommend Cat to anyone!
My husband, myself, and our then one-year-old daughter relocated to DC from Massachusetts back in 2017. We literally had one weekend when we were available to come to DC to look at apartments. The cat was so great throughout the entire process. In the lead up to our visit she always promptly responded to our emails and even took us on a FaceTime tour of a few properties. We found our place the weekend we visited DC and couldn't have done it without Cat. Fast forward a year, and of course, we chose Cat to help us find a home to purchase. Once again, she was flexible, responsive, and honest. We found the perfect home for our family and the entire process went so smoothly. She is the absolute best!
Catherine is the ultimate professional and she knows her stuff!! She was able to help in every way...even with walking me through how to get my Nest unit to start functioning properly again! There’s nothing like a realtor willing to roll up their sleeves and help you with whatever issues present themselves. I appreciate Catherine’s knowledge, patience, timeliness and attention to detail. She never missed a beat and she certainly kept me on my toes! I can’t think of a single thing to complain about. I highly recommend her as she went above and beyond to ensure that the process was smooth and painless. Thank you, Catherine, for all you do!
It was a joy working with Cat as our realtor! My fiancé and I met her at an Open House and we felt so comfortable right from the start. When it came time for us to get serious about buying our first home, we knew Cat was the realtor we trusted and wanted to work with to help us buy our forever dream home. Being new to the home buying process, Cat guided us through the process answering our many questions and giving us helpful tips. She is very thorough and knowledgeable in her role and was always available to us. We highly recommend having the opportunity to work with Cat for your future home buying and selling needs!
Cat is amazing at her job! My husband and I are first time home buyers and she made the whole process a breeze! She also has great recommendations for everything in the home buying process so you'll always have answers to all your questions. We closed on our home today and loved everything about the process, her advice, and our new home!
Very skilled, responsive, trustworthy, and gave me the best advice and service, which was so appreciated! She made both processes of purchasing and selling a home worry-free and was always enthusiastic to help in every way possible. Her market knowledge, experience, and dedication made me pick her as an agent, would highly recommend it!
Cat and Al are amazing! They helped me buy a few properties in DC the past few years and made each transaction smooth and easy. They did an excellent job negotiating, were professional, knowledgeable, and extremely responsive throughout. If you need an agent, go with them, they offer top service and follow Evers's excellent reputation!
Cat just helped me buy my first home and she made the whole experience a breeze! From explaining how the process works to recommending and showing properties, to making sure I met every deadline, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Cat and would recommend her to anyone in the market, the first-time buyer or not!
I loved doing business with you. I know you must be hearing it a lot but I truly appreciated your patience, plus all the energy and the time you spent with me. You were always quick to respond to all my questions and concerns, you really made me feel like your # 1 client.
I needed a new place for my business, a friend of mine referred me to this very hard working team, as he had used them twice already! Everything went so smoothly that in no time I had the perfect spot in the greatest location. Thank you, Al and team, you are the best.
My husband and I just bought our first home together with the expert guidance of Cat. We absolutely loved working with her - she made the process smooth and easy, and we enjoyed getting to know her as well. We couldn't be happier! We can't recommend Cat enough!
You really do it all, rent, buy, sell, lease, residential, commercial... no wonder we got referred so enthusiastically to your Super-Team! After finding us the ideal office space, you found us a great place to live, thank you so much for all your hard work.
We believe this is the best experience we had buying a property, ever! If we could buy again tomorrow we would call you immediately, why waste time with somebody else when we now know the best people to contact. We will gladly recommend you. Best regards.
Thank you so much for everything you did last year with the sale of the house. After being on the market with two other agents, you were able to market my home and find a buyer asap. You made it possible!
Your service is impressive; we particularly enjoyed your marketing plan, constant feedback, and status reports. Thanks for selling our house so fast and helping us move on with our life, sincerely.
Your personal touch and sense of humor made all the difference in the world. I am highly recommending you to everyone in need of a realtor extraordinaire.
I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends, thanks for your help and professionalism, you made my transaction a real charm!
You made my dream come true. I found my home sweet home thanks to you. Plus you made everything look so easy. Count on my referrals.
If anyone wants accomplished and knowledgeable realtors, look no further, this team should be on the top of your list!
We worked with Cat in 2020/2021 to buy our new home and sell our prior home, after having a great experience working with her in 2016 to buy our prior home. Cat was fantastic to work with in both the buying process as well as the selling process, and we would highly recommend her to anyone in search of a real estate agent. She was knowledgeable, always highly responsive, well-organized, clearly explained each step in the process, and provided excellent negotiating advice.
I cannot say enough great things about Catherine! She helped my husband and I buy our first home. She kept us posted along the way, helped us know what to expect, and was extremely responsive via email and phone. She made the process so easy and not stressful at all. She worked quickly to get our offer in in less than 24 hours in a hot market and also helped facilitate all of the parties involved. HIGHLY recommend! Thank you, Catherine!
Jordan has been very knowledgable during this whole process. We are first time home buyers and the market is very "buyer beware." Everybody gets a different experience, and though it has been stressful and full of anxiety, Jordan has consistently been there for us. She is knowledgable and even when she didn't have the answers she would do her research and provide us with names, recommendations, and links to use at our disposal. She kept a positive attitude toward our budget, has walked us through the process of buying a home. She even linked us with a great lender who is upbeat, knowledgable, and honest. We lucked out when Zillow connected her with us on the fly and we are so close to closing down on the condo we will have for many years.
From the very first time we spoke Cat was very attentive and listened to what was important to us. I thought I may have started the house hunting too early, but she assured me that she was willing to work with us as early as we like. This proved to help narrow our search as we viewed home in many different areas, mind you, this was during the early stages of COVID-19. Cat was very careful and respected our space as we viewed numerous homes. This was my third home purchase and it was by far the easiest, stress free and FUN experience I have had when other times it was the complete opposite. Cat was excellent at communicating with us and took care of everything. I would highly recommend Catherine and I can’t express enough of how easy she made the entire process.
Cat was a true pro throughout our whole home buying process. She was responsive, knowledgeable and always one step ahead, thinking through the questions or concerns and finding the answers to questions before we asked. When it came time to close she was guided us through the process masterfully with no unexpected hiccups.
Throughout our entire homebuying process we were forced to work from afar due to COVID19. Catherine (or Cat as you'll come to know her) went above and beyond during the home search, and then from offer to closing to make sure all of our concerns were addressed. She approached the entire process in a thorough, professional manner that alleviated worries and kept things on schedule. Excellent knowledge of neighborhoods, VA loan requirements, and home ownership costs/maintenance schedules. I will enthusiastically recommend her in the future to family and friends.
HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Cat is down to earth, friendly, understanding and has the patience of a Saint! We walked through numerous locations, experienced let-downs but through it all...we finally found our home! Cat was by our side every step of our journey. What impressed me the most is how she is always present in the moment, shes invested in your happiness. If there was a property that didn't feel right or gave us a bad vibe, she was quick to make the executive decision, say no and continue our search for "the one".
With this insane housing market, listings are here one minute and gone the next so if you find something and it feels right....make the offer! I'll admit the entire process as a first time homeowner had me a nervous wreck but Cat not only provided uplifting comfort, but lead the negotiating to get us an awesome offer and was also able to get additional credit from the seller to put towards repairs! She has been sent from above. It was a true pleasure to work with Cat and we will continue to sing praises of her awesomeness for years and years to come. I would and will recommend her to literally anyone. You will NEVER feel alone or unsure when you have Cat as your agent. We would not be homeowners if it wasn't for her.
I highly recommend Catherine. She is great at her job and a wonderful person to work with. She helped me sell my home above asking price in the first week of showings during a time when the market tends to be slow. She beautifully staged the unit and generated a lot of interest in it. She took care of the "little things" to make sure the unit looked great, including tidying up, fixing a towel bar that was loose, replacing light bulbs, etc. She went above and beyond to sell my unit. She also expertly handled my tenants and made sure there were no issues in selling a unit that had been previously rented out. She is a genuinely wonderful person, and I'm glad I got the opportunity to know her.
Cat is a master at real estate! The most important part of finding a real estate agent is finding someone who you can put your trust into. The proof is in the way she handled selling our home. She knew the exact price we should list our home, when we should list, staged it perfectly, and handled the multiple offer situation in the most optimal way. She was able to get 23 offers on our house 1 day after the open houses, which most of them were 25k over asking! Not many realtors can make that happen. She knew the market, knew how to drive the most buyers into our home, and ensured we got the most qualified buyers for our home. She was extremely detailed oriented and was able to find any errors in the offer (i.e. offers who included a washer dryer when none were present). This made us feel confident when we signed the offer it was exactly what we expected. She kept us on track and made sure that we made each and every deadline (I didn't have to keep track of any of it, which was a huge stress relief). I give her my absolute highest recommendation, anyone would be lucky to have her on their side.
