"Catherine was a joy to work with. Pleasant, conscientious, willing to give of her time, and not interested in just getting a sale done for her own benefit. I would definitely contract her again for a personal buy or sell."-Frank
"Catherine was absolutely fantastic to work with! She is professional, honest, thorough and extremely knowledgable about the area. As a buyer from out of town, all of these attributes were very important to me and made me feel comfortable knowing I was in the best of hands. She was highly recommended to us, and I would 100% pass on this recommendation with the highest regard. She is the best! ."-Jacuie B, Buyer
"Great partner in the hunt for a new home. Highly recommended."-David M Buyer
"We've been working with Catherine for over 10 years. She has helped us both on the buying side and selling side of our properties. (We like to move a lot.) Catherine is great to work with! She is personable, responsive, knowledgeable and will handle everything from start to finish. She has great connections in the industry and understands the SWFL market very well! You could not be in better hands!"-Previous Buyer/Seller
"Catherine helped me buy my condo last August. My place is still a work in progress but I've been able to enjoy my new home for a month just before Thanksgiving and I've been here since mid-January. I'm in no rush to return to the cold. I just wanted to thank you again for finding the perfect spot for me. I love it here and I've met many kind & friendly people. Again, thanks! "-Diane
"It is both our pleasure and an extreme joy to share our experience. Toni and I want to thank everyone part of the Compass Team that participated with our recent purchase and all assistance provided which resulted in a very pleasant and smooth transaction! In particular, Catherine Backus! Her overall personality, professionalism, compassion, dedication, commitment, and guidance to assure our satisfaction cannot be matched or duplicated. In addition to her honestly and overall patience. We are also in sales and therefore appreciate the value, talents, and gifts Catherine possesses, separating her from others. There are no other Real Estate Sales professionals we would ever associate with other than Catherine. It's unfortunate our businesses are located in New York, otherwise we would welcome Catherine being a major part of our team!"-Toni P.
"Cat is an excellent agent we did houses in a hurry when within 2 days of looking and she got a sense for what we really wanted she showed us a house that wasn't even on our list and that's the one we made an offer on there were four offers at the time and she was able to work her magic through that process and we became the owners of the house we bid on thank her a lot Great follow up after the sale there was not a moment of stress she always covered everything that came up I would highly recommend her for anybody that is looking for a home in this area."-Wesley W.
"Catherine was amazing with helping us find a home. This is a very difficult market and she was always available for questions and help.

I highly recommend you to use her as your realtor if you want first class service and expertise!"-Karen W.
