"Cathy made every part of our relocation to Austin welcoming, and as easy as possible. From our very first meeting, Cathy took care of us like family. She rushed to homes that were potential contenders, often the morning they would hit the market! She sent videos with commentary specific to our priorities - we must have had a dozen private tours without ever leaving our home! Cathy was honest when she felt a missed the mark, and she alerted us to factors we hadn’t considered (she knows real estate, and she knows Austin!). She was calm and reassuring during the stressful process of buying a home from out-of-state (during a pandemic!), and worked hard to make sure that the right home for our family is now ours. We couldn’t thank Cathy and Bob enough for their work, guidance, and friendship. And we can’t wait to get to Austin!" - The Lawton Family
"Cathy is an amazing real estate agent! My husband and I were not the easiest of clients. We started out wanting to buy a house near Westlake in Lost Creek or the Courtyard. It was hard finding a home in such an expensive area within our budget, but Cathy managed to find some great places. I cannot tell you how many houses Cathy took us to around Westlake, and she never complained. Unfortunately, after all her hard work, we switched gears and decided to buy in Mueller. Cathy found us the perfect home in an area that we love! She worked so tirelessly during the whole process from searching for a home to closing on it months later. One of the things we love most about Cathy is she is extremely trustworthy and genuine and you always know you are getting an honest opinion from her. She is extremely knowledgeable about the current real estate market and the process of buying a home. Even when we switched to mueller, she quickly learned the area and got us great viewpoints on the different builders. We asked her tons of questions and she never seemed frustrated or annoyed - on the contrary she answered every question promptly and enthusiastically. And when it came to the walk-thru, she made sure everything was exactly as promised and we were happy before the closing. Cathy checks in with us every few months or so to see how we are enjoying our new home (we are still loving it!)."
"Cathy sold my residence in Lost Creek essentially prior to first date. She took an active interest in ensuring my home was show worthy and added many personal touches including adding plants and actually planting flowers in front and back. Every promise was executed correctly, on time. I highly recommend Cathy to be your realtor of choice."
"We love Cathy. She is not only a great real estate agent but also a great person. We sold our house in June/2018 in Travis Heights. A modern house that we would have love to with us. Cathy was very professional. She did many open houses, worked on decorating the house for each event and managed the whole process as she was part of our family (we were not living in Austin at the time so she was fully in charge of everything). We interviewed many before deciding to work with Cathy and we made the right choice. Our experience with Cathy was excellent."
"“We began our search for a home in Austin (relocating from Silicon Valley). I cold-called Cathy as she had a I liked. It turned out that the house wasn’t right for us so Cathy went to work showing me the different areas of Austin. She found the PERFECT lot and equally perfect builder. We trusted her 1000% and bought the lot unseen, save for the photos and videos she sent us. She has the patience of a saint, a wicked fun sense of humor and is a consummate professional. I don’t call her my realtor any longer. I call her my friend. "
"Cathy Romano is truly the most amazing realtor I have ever used. After 6 mths of a very painful with an agent who promised everything then delivered absolutely nothing, we decided to closely vet out our next agent. On the same day that we interviewed Cathy, she had an offer on our home at full price before we ever signed the contract to use her. She does her homework and takes the journey from start to finish with you, holding your hand through the entire process. She truly cares about her clients and takes the time and effort to get the job done."
