Client Review

I would describe the service we received with one word-EXCELLENT! Catherine is a wonderful person to work with. She walked us through every step, answered all of our questions and took great care of us.

Client Review

Excellent-during our home search, Catherine and her team were very flexible in working around our schedule. Tours were very well organized and provided detailed information on listings. Catherine really listened to what was important to us in a home and focused on those details. Very honest in her presentation of a property, pointing out both good and negative views. We never felt pressured to make a decision. She was there to help us find a home-not to sell us the first house that "met a checklist" of requirements. Very responsive to requests for information; helped in the negotiation and mortgage process. Her extensive knowledge of this area was also appreciated. Very professional and always upbeat. Warm friendly attitude no matter what!

Client Review

My wife and I have bought and sold homes several times. I believe that this experience with Catherine Arlen has to be the best we have had. From the start she let us know that this was an up hill battle in this economy. She even gave us alternative solutions to our situation, but my wife and I wanted to continue with the listing and hopeful sale of the property. Thanks, Catherine.

Client Reveiw

It was a joy working with Catherine Arlen. She understood my need to quickly sell my home and with her help a realistic price was set. In a few days I had two firm offers. Catherine skillfully negotiated the sale to my best advantage and I did get the full asking price.

Catherine works with a professional photographer. For each of her listed homes fifteen to twenty five photos are usually shown. I know these quality photos were a major factor in attracting potential buyers to look at my home.

The photographer and Catherine did a great job in staging. Several agents commented on how nicely my home was staged.

Catherine was prompt in responding to all of my questions. She was very thorough when explaining to me all of the information regarding the listing and the actual sale.

I feel very fortunate to have had Catherine Arlen as my agent. I could not have asked for better service.

Client Review

We have worked with Catherine Arlen directly three times now and indirectly once, during the purchase of our daughters first home. Catherine is the consummate Realtor and professional. She personifies the phrase " Going beyond the call of duty!" She listened carefully as we outlined our needs and how we wanted to navigate through both sales and purchases, and was tireless in her efforts to ensure that those needs were met. In every endeavor, Catherine never lost sight of what was in our best interest. We knew we could count on her to go to bat for us, and to keep us up-to-date on every detail throughout the entire process.

Catherine has become our friend as well as our Realtor and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home. You can rest assured that you will receive top-notch, personalized and professional care.

Client Review

We recently purchased a successful practice, and wanted to buy a home as well. No matter who we saw, we were told that we would have to wait until we had owned our business for 2 years before purchasing a home.

In the meantime, Catherine began researching creative ways to get us into a house. Going far beyond what we anticipated, she even took a course on owner financing to learn if hidden
options existed. I strongly feel that most agents would've been scared to invest time into what seemed like a lost cause.

Since homes offering owner financing must be owned free and clear, most were either run down or way out of our league; nothing in between. The next step Catherine took was to seek out estate properties that fit our criteria, and then to find out if they would consider holding a note for potential buyers.

Long story short, we now live in a spacious home with stunning water views. We stayed within our budget, and we love coming home each day. Catherine never stopped short, and we think of her as our own miracle worker!

There is nothing more personal than your home, and finding that perfect fit is so important. Catherine Arlen is the best match maker ever. It is rare for a day to go by without me recommending her to someone.

Client Review

Catherine and her team were wonderful in helping me through the sale of my mother's home via an estate sale. She was very supportive and helpful in providing information to me in a timely fashion. She also provided her input when we were trying to determine what projects to tackle during the remodeling. Due to the house being a distance from me I can't tell you how many times I had to rely on Catherine to meet a contractor or to check on an issue with the house. She did it all with a smile and I would definitely recommend her as an agent!

Catherine was the consummate professional in assisting us with selling our house, especially in today's market. We are extremely pleased with our results!

Client Review

Catherine was by far the best realtor we've over interacted with. She advocated for us on all fronts, and always kept us abreast of developments. She more than earned her commission, and I can't say that is always true of realtors.

Catherine and her team have been energetic, communicative, friendly and highly effective. We have already recommended her to a neighbor who has selected her. She has utilized her support to obtain expedited scheduling for a painting contractor and a house cleaner.

Super go getter! Always able
To answer our questions. Very knowledgeable of the buying/selling process. Very quick to respond to concerns. Her team was super organized and helpful.

Client Review

Catherine and her staff (Jill & Jennifer) have been nothing short of amazing. We had a very sensitive situation during our process and the care and thoughtfulness that Catherine displayed truly showed she cared about us and the dynamics of our family. Catherine’s attention to detail and superior level of organization is impressive to watch in action. While informing us of what we needed to know, she also sheltered us from undue stress of the home buying process. In short, her and her staff made home buying a very enjoyable experience. Please do yourself a favor and at least get a consultation from Catherine before you buy or sell your next home.
