Catherine was extraordinarily patient with our multi-year search to find the home we wanted. When we finally found the house, eight other buyers wanted the same house. The initial bidding was crazy. Catherine followed the process, we came in fourth, but Catherine stayed in contact with the sellers' realtor. The house wouldn't appraise for what the other buyers offered and eventually we were in a position to get the house we wanted. I am certain that would have not gotten the house, if Catherine hadn't been our realtor. It was Catherine's attention to detail, focus, and negotiation skills that made the difference.
