"I highly recommend Cathy Johnson as a Realtor. Cathy is professional, knowledgeable, dependable, efficient, and always had my best interest in mind. Cathy helped me find a beautiful home in my price range and in the area that I wanted. She is a great negotiator, using her knowledge of the market to make sure I got the best deal. Cathy made me feel like I was her only client. She always responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. She answered all questions and made sure that I understood every step of the process. She worked with my mortgage agent to ensure that everything was moving according to schedule. My interests were always a priority to Cathy from finding the right home, to negotiations, to the final sale. Cathy is wonderful! "

"Cathy Johnson is an exceptional Real Estate Agent. She helped us with everything from listing our old house, staging, contacting service providers for jobs around the house, marketing promotions, initiating open houses, and even helping us find our new home. Downsizing is difficult enough, but having Cathy as our agent made it much easier than we expected. Cathy was caring, understanding, and patient. She was efficient and caring when needed, and had that aggressive nature often needed to finalize the deal in favor of her client. We strongly recommend Cathy!!"
