"Cathy did an outstanding job helping us both finding a home and selling our home all within a very short time frame in a volatile market. She is the consummate professional with high ethical standards, great negotiating skills, follow-up, attention to details, a good listener and attentive to our unique needs. Cathy is extremely organized and invested a lot of time and energy during the home search, purchase and sale. She also has exemplary knowledge of the market with a vast network of connections. We are so happy we chose Cathy to represent us in this major journey. " - A Shubert

"This is not the first time we chose to work with Kathy. Last time we sold our previous house with her, a couple of years ago and we had only good things to say about her. This time, we purchased a house, for which the owner and their attorney were quite difficult to work with, but she stepped in big time and helped smoothing up the communication between us and the seller's representatives to a very manageable and sane level. She also helped with some technical and law related details that we didn't know how to handle and also was always on top of getting the right information from the right people. All in all, without her, I think that we would most likely end up not getting the house, which would've been devastating. It was a real pleasure to have her as our real estate agent and we're looking forward to work with her in the future." - Cionel

"Cathy went above and beyond throughout the sale/closing of our home. She was an essential partner selling during the pandemic. This was rental property and we did not live in the town. Cathy managed the entire process with utmost professionalism. We felt completely involved, even though we were not present." - Gary and Britta

"Cathy was extremely helpful, patient, and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. She helped us buy and sell our first home. If we're ever in the market again, there's no doubt we will reach out to Cathy." - Angie and Doug

"Working with Cathy was a pleasure. Within days of meeting Cathy she found the perfect home for us. We put in an offer and it was accepted. Due to COVID and some other factors the deal fell through, but Cathy never gave up. We continued looking for almost a year, going to open houses, new listings, etc. Cathy went out of her way to show us all different kinds of places including single family homes, condos, and two family homes. These were all over Nassau County. Thanks to Cathy's hard work we were able to find something that we were happy with. We HIGHLY recommend using her as your agent!" - johnsusino22

"We worked with Cathy twice, when I purchase the house and 5 years later when we sold it. Both times she was extremely patient with us, explaining everything we needed to know as buyer and then as seller. When we purchased the house, she organized visits to all the house we wanted to see and she asked the former owner to allow us to visit multiple times, before we made up our minds and placed an offer. When we sold the house, she was able to find multiple interested buyers right away. We practically had multiple offers in the first 2 weeks. That told us that the price was just right. She always went the extra mile for us, even if when it wasn't part of the job. Her attention to details when preparing the house for selling was extraordinary, telling us exactly what needs to be done to stage it the right way. She intermediated all of the communication (pretty extensive) between us and the other side, always advising what to do and how to do it. Seriously, if you have to buy or sell a house, don't even think of hiring anybody else. She's all-in-all simply awesome." - Cionel

"With so many real estate agents in Oceanside I contacted Cathy Vingelli. Cathy sold multiple homes for several neighbors and I contacted her to sell my home. My home had an offer in 4 days! Cathy was available anytime I had any questions and she is an exceptional and reliable agent. Hal Knopf Realty, you have a perfect diamond of an employee and Cathy, I would recommend you as an A+ agent." - skeehner3311

"Cathy handled the sale of our home during the corona virus hitting Long Island hard. She was in constant contact with us and kept a positive outlook throughout the sales process." - Esatran

"Cathy was phenomenal in guiding us through our first home buying experience in a very difficult time. She was extremely responsive by phone and email. She is very knowledgeable about the oceanside neighborhood and surrounding towns. She is also very helpful with suggestions from lawyers to landscapers and other contractors. Really couldn't have done gotten a home without her!" - Michael

"Cathy was really amazing to work with. My husband and I are first time homeowners and Cathy made the process very easy. She's very knowledgeable about each property and helps you understand what to look out for when you're new to real estate. Cathy was so sweet after we bought our home and left us a nice bottle of champagne. She even sent us nice sunflower seeds to plant in our new home. I'd recommend Cathy to any first time home buyer." - Simon

"Cathy helped me sell my home and purchase my condo and then another house . She is very patient and is always there to answer my questions. We’ve spent a lot of time together looking at so many homes until we finally found “the one.” She was always willing to take me anywhere to look at a house and is extremely knowledgeable of the areas I was interested in. Not only is she a great Realtor but has become a great friend! Thank you, Cathy, for all of your help!"
- Darla

"Owning our first home would have been impossible without Cathy. Many obstacles stood in our way and Cathy overcame each and every one to ensure we would finally own a home. There aren't words to express our gratitude to her. She's extremely responsible and sincere which is very difficult to find in our area. Thank you so much Cathy for finding the home of our dreams and NEVER giving up. Your persistence and dedication is beyond our expectations!!" - Jessie

"When I needed a place, Cathy put in the work, did the research, and found me exactly what I wanted. We looked at a bunch and was basically Goldilocks until I found the one that was just right. I absolutely love my place and am so happy!"

"My family and i would not be in the wonderful Oceanside neighborhood if it wasn’t for Cathy. We had many obstacles throughout the home buying process that Cathy helped us to resolve in a timely manner. She was very responsive to any questions we may have had. Communication was great from start to finish. We highly recommend using her for your real estate needs. We will definitely be happy to work with her again in the the future." - Shameer
