"My Warrior Realtor Catherine!

Wow. Where do I begin? The journey of a single working female trying to buy a house to call the Bay Area home. Definitely needed a warrior realtor to fight the crazy market alongside me. Catherine did exactly that. She was relentless in seeking out properties that not only met my home business needs but also fit my budget- not an easy task. Hear this- every now and then I got so desperate, I was willing to settle for less. Catherine would not let that happen. She would tour the house in consideration and ask me buyer’s questions that got me thinking. Many times, she physically pointed out why the property in question is not a good idea nor a good fit. Talk about a true client focused agent. Sometimes I wondered, does she want to earn money at all? Apparently not until I am (her client) fully satisfied. Of course, along the search- COVID happened and the market got even crazier. Did I want to give up? Yes. But Catherine continued to encourage me- telling me “your house is out there”. Indeed, my house was out there. I closed on the 30th of March and I am so happy! Hats off to Catherine Krueger for her dedication to the job. Her knowledge and determination to get the job done right. There’s no time to waste with her straightforwardness, yet she’s packed with patience. Her sensitivity and understanding of my needs as her client took us to the finish line with flying colors. Thank you Catherine! And Elise! (kick-ass mother-daughter team). Elise showed me a few houses herself. I hope you both will continue to make a difference in many more lives like you did mine. You are the best! I will for sure send my friends and relatives your way- either buying or selling.💫

"Another year, and another successful home purchase with Catherine. Just 12 months ago, Catherine assisted my parents in purchasing their first home. And now, I'm living just 6 blocks away from them in my own. Catherine's experience in navigating difficult financing blockers was critical in my ability to secure this purchase. Furthermore, her knowledge of inspection companies (and their quality of inspections) helped paint a more transparent picture of the home condition compared to what the sellers had provided.

As always, she's prompt, readily available, and her decades of insight truly makes her the premier realtor in the East Bay. I absolutely refuse to work with anyone else and will forever sing praises to my family and friends about her services. THANK YOU!

"This is the second time that Catherine is representing us in buying a house. She is very thorough, honest, and knows exactly what you are looking for. It is always a pleasure to go to open houses with her - she is not trying to get you to buy any house, she is making sure you get the house that fits your needs and your wants. She has always been very responsive to your questions without delay - which definitely reduced stress and anxiety!. If we were to sell a house, we would not hesitate to have her represent us.

"A Disney-like dream in chaotic times! Catherine has provided an exceptional experience for my family in our home buying process. My family began our journey to find our dream home in June of 2020. This was our first time going through the home buying process, and Catherine exceeded all expectations: responding to calls and messages at odd hours and sending over brilliant collections of data to assist with our research. To top it all off, this was all during the COVID-19 pandemic!! Catherine's history and experience with the Bay Area market has given her superhuman intuition - she knows exactly what to look for in a walk through, nails the estimated price with almost no degree of error, and provides insightful guidance and suggestions throughout the entire process. She's truly a pro, and the evidence is clear: my family got to move into our new home before ringing in the new year - marking an end to a chaotic 2020, and leaping into 2021 with our stomachs full and smiles all around." - Kairui Z.

"I cannot say enough great things about Catherine. She helped my wife buy her first house and after we got married, she found us our house on the first day we looked. We thought it would be difficult to satisfy our combined needs for suburban and nature within our price range, but our house is amazing. She made everything so easy, helped us with the bidding and the negotiations and the paperwork. Besides that, she is a truly inspiring and warm-hearted and heartwarming and unique wonderful person. She still helps us find contractors when we need work done and advises us with things related to the house. We are still so blessed to know her." - Danu C.

"There's a short list of people who have helped me the most in this lifetime, and Catherine is at the top of the list. She helped me find my home four years ago - - a needle in a haystack on a very short time line. So when it came time to buy again I had her handle the sale of that house and the search for a new one. This time I thought we'd be looking forever for a dream house that had all the things we wanted. She took us out looking and we found it the first day. She got me way over asking on the sale of my old house, leaving me wondering why I'd worried so much for so long. She's resourceful, has great contacts and is the consummate professional, while also being super sweet, attentive and personable. Look no further. Catherine is a superstar. " - Cindy F.

"Catherine is the best. The very best. After using agents that said they would take care of us and didn't, we were gun shy and needed someone who had our back. Catherine understood what we wanted (a family home) and didn't treat our transaction like an "investment". She knew our daughter had asthma, she crawled under houses to check for mold. She knew we wanted a family neighborhood, a place for our kids to grow up. When we liked a house, she talked to the neighbors and got the low down of the bock. Catherine was so well informed about every area, very thorough, pro active, and protective of us and our interests. The best was her follow through. She chased down slow responding agents, out of town owners and non-responding inspectors. She saved a deal that almost went south due to others' miscommunication. The transaction stalled out and Catherine inserted herself into the middle and made it happen so we could move into our home before the holidays. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else again.

"We used Catherine Krueger to sell our home this past summer and she was outstanding. Catherine has been selling and helping buyers find homes in the East Bay for quite some time now. She is a long time resident of El Cerrito and we knew she would be the best person to sell our El Cerrito home. Catherine spent many hours answering our questions, providing us with objective data about the market, and gave us a lot of info on comps in the area. We were super worried that our 1925 house wouldn't be "pristine" enough for buyers and she listened to all of our concerns. She made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other realtors don't do. She scheduled all of the inspections for us and went to all the inspections (even when we were at work), provided us with staging tips, and had professional photographs taken. When we saw our listing we were blown away. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing!! We received 2 offers within the first few days of putting our house up. Our house went under contract 8 days after we put it on the market at well above asking price (I was shocked)!!! We accepted and Catherine walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine Krueger to sell or help you buy a home. She's a true professional and a genuinely nice person. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better realtor. " - Beth Witonsky Sherry
