"Cathy helped us sell our house in a challenging market and got us top dollar! She was very helpful though the entire process, and I can highly recommend her!" - D. Croghan

"Cathy is a skilled and personable realtor. We worked with her in 2019 to sell our Oahu home, and she was invaluable in helping us get the home listed, staged, and sold. She has lived on Oahu for years, and seems to know everything about every community from the North Shore to Waikiki, from the Leeward to the Windward sides. She also has a large network of trusted peers and professionals in the real estate industry. If we ever return to Oahu to live - which we hope to do at some point in the next few years - we will put our trust in Cathy to help us find our next Hawai`i home." - M.G. Miller

"I have known and worked with Cathy Bridges almost from the beginning of her career. Cathy is arguably the best realtor I have ever worked with. She is focused, savvy, and has a grasp on the real estate market in Oahu. I have never doubted her advice and bought my first home sight unseen based on her observations. Her staff is amazing and easy to work with and made the process "a piece of cake”. She is also a friend and has been there for me on many occasions. She is simply the best!" - L. Bonnet

"Great realtor!!! Cathy is an indefatigable professional who at all times performed her job always looking out for my interest and always flagged problems and a way to resolve them. She always kept me informed throughout the escrow with all details . It made buying my property simple and less stressful. She even helped with my relocation to Hawaii. I owe many thanks for a Job extremely well done." - S. Butera

"I wish to highly recommend Cathy Bridges, she is simply the BEST agent in Hawaii! I first met Ms. Bridges 8 years ago when I began my search for a realtor in Hawaii. It was IMMEDIATELY that I learned what an outstanding agent she would be: of the several agents my realtor in Central California contacted, she was the ONLY one who responded to his query. I began a professional relationship with her that has now spanned several years and assisted me in the three purchases and sales of homes. I bought 2 properties on Oahu before I retired on the mainland. I finally moved to Oahu during the Hawaii Covid quarantine restrictions. She picked me up from the airport and took me to get my car and went to the grocery store to buy food for me. She also brought a blow-up mattress and bedding for me to sleep that night. The following day, she and her family arrived to unpack my PODS and help me move in. Over the next few months, she provided advice regarding workmen who could install fans, provide lawn service, etc. Eight months later, she mentioned that despite only having been in Hawaii a short time, it was then possible to refinance my mortgage at a much lower rate. When I decided to sell my first property, she arranged for professional cleaning and then as part of her realtor service, she personally staged the home. (NOTEWORTHY: homes that are staged sell faster and at higher prices than those not staged.) Seven days later, she met me with a spreadsheet of offers and ranked them according not only the offered price but which had the best inclusions. The property sold for $61,000 over asking. I have now lived in Hawaii for three years, and I continue to this day to contact her when I need advice for workmen or other home issues. This is a lengthy review, but it is important to understand CLEARLY the level of service Ms. Bridges provides her clients. NOWHERE will you find such dedication." - B Patton

"Cathy was absolutely amazing in walking us through the process of buying a house here on Oahu. She knew the different areas very well, she helped us with the paperwork, and she always responded back to us - even later in the evenings. She definitely went above and beyond to make sure we found the best home. I highly recommend her to anyone thinking about buying a house in Hawaii!" - K. Waddel

"I cannot stress how amazing Cathy is! Not only was my process of buying a home smooth and easy. She made me feel like I wasn't just another "client." She always goes out of her way to make sure you're getting what you want and deserve. There was an even a incident after the deal had been "closed" and she still kept in contact and helped me resolve the issue. 110% recommend!" - R. Darden

"I have bought and sold homes in NYC, NJ and Florida. Prior to moving to Hawaii, I thought NYC was the most competitive and difficult market to navigate, but I was wrong! We recently closed on our home purchase in Kailua, Hawaii and frankly, it would not have have closed WITHOUT Cathy Bridges. I personally know, and have worked with many real estate agents over the course of several transactions in different states, and Cathy is second to none. You would be remiss to try and buy or sell in Hawaii without a high quality agent. The rules are a bit different here, and so is the competition and the process. It was a bit daunting at times, even for someone who has done a number of real estate transactions. Part of what makes Cathy a great agent is incredible market knowledge. Cathy knows which homes are going to go above asking price with multiple offers, and which ones are a bit too high and need to get reduced. I watched her be right on several homes we looked at over the course of a six month period of shopping and looking. Aside from outstanding market knowledge, Cathy also has an extensive network of quality people that can help you, from mortgage lending to renovating, to even finding your wife a hair appointment! Which brings me to the my last comment - Cathy is a genuinely nice and kind person, who looks out for her clients financial and personal interests - even if they don't align with her own. This concept, commonly referred to as "integrity" is increasingly difficult to find in any business dealings, and Cathy possesses it in spades. I truly believe Cathy enjoys helping people carry out their life plans, and uses real estate as her conduit." - K. Shelly

"Cathy helped us sell our Kailua condo. The experience was great from beginning to close. She helped in every way; staging suggestions, comp values, and updates on competitive properties. We sold our property promptly for the price we wanted. Cathy was never "stingy" with her time. She also helped us purchase a replacement property. That transaction went just as smoothly. She is very conscientious and detail oriented. We will definitely use her in the future if we have further real estate needs. We are very grateful for her professionalism and friendship." - B. Sarchet

"I had a great experience working with Cathy. She was very responsive, consistent, and patient. She went above and beyond to work with me over an extended period of time to find the right house for my son and I. Over the time working together, we developed a friendship that still remains today. I have referred numerous friends and colleagues to her without hesitation." - L. Carpenter

"Cathy Bridges represented our family during my most recent purchase in Hawaii. We are a military family that relocated from Washington, D.C. and were a bit unsure if we were going buy/rent in Hawaii. Cathy was great! Having a military family herself she really understood how tough of a move it was to relocate to Hawaii. Also, she knew how to take advantage of Temporary Housing while we looked for a place to purchase. She was very patient and responsive and promptly returned phone calls. We would definitely recommend Cathy to any potential home owner military or not. Out of the three homes we own Cathy Bridges happens to be my #1 Realtor." - J. Howe

"Cathy was an amazing realtor! She had houses lined up for viewing within a day of us arriving. She understood that we were new to the island and had young children we had to bring along for showings. Cathy lined up a great variety of houses with all our needs and wants. Mrs. Bridges knew the island very well along with all the various subdivisions. Not only did Cathy find us a wonderful title company she also found us superb loan agency and home owners insurance company. Overall we are very pleased with our service from Cathy Bridges. Our family is very grateful to have found a wonderful home in an excellent community and this is all thanks to Cathy." - G. Krumm

"Friendly, Professional, and very knowledgeable with all aspects of buying a home! Kept us well informed with the process and took time to explain all necessary paper work needed to buy our home. Overall great Experience!" - K. Ruggles
