“Catharine is the best relocation/residential real estate person that I have have worked with. The quality of her work and attention to detail is excellent. As an example of her going above and beyond, at the closing dinner for the client, she offered to drive almost 100 miles to review the clients old house and work with the local broker to get it sold. Damned if she did not do it!”
