"Cathy Mead was a huge help throughout the entire (first-time home buying) process. She looked out for my best interest and found homes that fit everything on my wish list and budget.

Her responsiveness to all my questions via email and/or calls/texts was outstanding. In addition, Cathy's expertise from home locations to recommendations of mortgage brokers, lawyers etc. made everything seamless and stress free.

Overall, I would highly recommend working with Cathy and her team to buy and/or sell your home!"

"We've used Cathy twice and we will definitely use her in the future. She gave us great advice while selling our home and helped us find our dream home. She answered all our questions and really helped the buying and selling process go smoothly."
