About Catharina

My name is Catharina Ritts. I was born in Sweden, and came to the United States 20 years ago to participate in the American Dream.   I have lived in Lamorinda & Tri-Valley towns, and now Livermore – I am an expert in these areas. I am happily married, with two amazing sons who brighten my life every day.  

One of the things you may learn about me:  I am a “horse person”.   As a young woman in Sweden, I pushed myself in high school to keep my grades up, rode a bike miles to the ranch daily, and worked hard at three jobs so I could afford my love and passion for equestrian life. I am a horse-owner to this day, and continue to carry this tenacity & drive with me in Real Estate.

My Nordic-European background presents a unique warmth of personality and attention to detail that most clients have never experienced in a Real Estate agent.  I have been an entrepreneur and business owner here in the U.S. for years, which have rewarded me with experience in sales & business development.  My client-centric approach has helped me excel as a proven and natural closer – my clients always call back.  Real Estate has become a perfect home for these skill sets. I love hard work, challenging scenarios, and cherish the reward of helping my clients find their dream home.   

Therefore it is with great enthusiasm that I partner myself – with the backing of my outstanding & experienced team at Compass- to help you on your journey to sell your home or purchase your new home!
