    Catherine embodies an incredible combination of intellect, ingenuity, artistry, common sense, kindness and beauty. In short, there’s nothing she couldn’t do if she put her mind to it.

Having witnessed how Catherine interacts with clients at all levels and in a variety of sectors, I highly recommend her as a phenomenal person to work with in any capacity.

    Catherine has a magnetic personality, coupled with an in-depth knowledge of the Peninsula’s high-end real estate market, making her a force to be reckoned with. She’s well respected, dynamic, results-oriented, and I’m proud to have her as a fellow colleague.
    - Paul Ybarbo - Realtor at Sotheby’s International Realty, San Francisco

    Catherine is relentless and creative. She finds unlisted homes for buyers (she did for us), and she exercises her considerable network to cultivate new buyers for the homes she lists. No one knows the real estate market in Atherton and Woodside like Catherine.
    - David Cowan - Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners

    If Catherine says 'say the word and I'll do it' and you say 'word' she does it, in my experience. She listens to what you want and then works hard for you... she's really a go-getter, and that's a great thing in interesting and unpredictable times!
    - Lauren S. - Founder at Elfenworks Productions LLC

    Catherine is the consummate professional. Her knowledge and understanding of the real estate market is comprehensive and insightful. We have worked with Catherine on 3 separate transactions and plan on engaging in another. When we needed to price our homes etc., she knew the market which enabled us to correctly price our property. We sold our homes at the price we decided and slightly higher in a very reasonable amount of time. She was constantly in communication, never going silent or unresponsive. When it came to negotiations she was excellent. She knew what the market would bear, therefore allowing us to maximize our sale price. Our transactions went smoothly and without a hitch.
