Agent Ratings for Catherine Barden
Condo buyer in San Marcos
Buying our first home while having our first child was quite an overwhelming process. To say I am grateful for Catherine truly is not enough. She worked diligently with us as my wife and I went from a broad scope of what we were looking for, to a very specific set of "must haves". She maintained an amazingly positive attitude while my wife and I got discouraged by the saturated market and continued to remind us out our perfect place is still out there. Catherine explained, step by step, the entire home buying process to us. As a first time buyer, this was essential and Catherine completely understood we needed some handholding. Most importantly, Catherine is incredibly dedicated to what she does. Night and day, she made herself available to us. She went above and beyond once we found our new home to make sure the short sale went through. She was a phenomenal communicator when it came to working with the seller's agent and the escrow agent. Lastly, she even helped us understanding and look for things during our inspection that, in no way, I would have ever been aware of. We are so glad that we used Catherine as a realtor and expect to have her sell our house when the time comes and help us on our next adventure (hopefully not at the same time we have our 2nd child). I would recommend Catherine to any first time buyer and hope this can help comsumers believe that Catherine is a qualified, knowledgable, patient, hard-working, trusting realtor.
Condo buyer in Solana Beach
Catherine is much more than a great broker. She leads you through the real estate maze and helps after you buy! As a new resident to Californis, I needed all the help I could get, and she provided it. Quite remarkable.

One of the best communicating agents I've had the pleasure of working with. Always replied promptly to my calls and emails and was very accurate and knowledgeable about the information she gave to me on the area and house. She went out of her way multiply times to make this work on our transaction and I couldn't be happier.

Catherine is one of those agent's that is open and honest with you and fights for you all the way to the end..She made the transaction super easy and her communication skills are beyond most other agents as she kept me updated weekly on a short sale we were working on. Highly recommend!
Home buyer in Crestline
Cathy is wonderful. She stuck by me through thick and thin so that I could make my dream home come true. She is smart, persistent and creative. It would not have happened with out her. She is the best!

Catherine Barden is the kind of real estate agent all other agents should aspire to be. She gave my sister all the best pointers to prepare her home for market, lending pieces of furniture and home accessories to help stage it for maximum appeal. Once on the market, she aggressively got the word out with agent tours, open houses, neighborhood flyers, and multiple internet and email postings. She worked tirelessly to ensure the condominium was given full coverage, not only on the internet but with local realtors who specialized in the Cardiff/Encinitas/north county area. Her experience and professional knowledge ensured the best price possible for a quick and fair sale. Once the sale was closed, (in less than two months), she immediately (and successfully) plunged into finding a charming new home that fit my sisterís tastes and budget. What a plus! My husband and I have sold other houses in the past and can only say that we wish we had been lucky enough to know her back then. She is definitely not the type of agent who will take a couple of pictures and then leave it to the internet to do the work. She hit the ground running with a very impressive interview. Her comprehensive and high tech sales proposal using an I-Pad and a professionally assembled binder easily outclassing her competition. Catherineís technical expertise and enthusiasm when helping my sister downsize, while meeting the tremendous challenges of a soft market, simply blew me away. Catherine is one of a kind and I would strongly recommend her to anyone. Carrie Hogue, San Diego (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Home buyer in SD - Linda Vista
I am a first time home buyer and I am so happy to have been able to work with Catherine. She is very professional and communicative, and, even though she works at a very fast pace, she always has time for questions and at the end it worked to our advantage. She made our whole first time experience very pleasant. I highly recommend her. She is now part of our family! Thank you Cathy!

Thank you Mark. It was a pleasure working with you as well.
Home buyer in La Mesa
Catherine Barden went above and beyond what was required of her as a real estate agent and capably guided my husband and I through our first home purchase. She worked with contractors to provide cost estimates on necessary repairs up front for us and negotiated with the sellers to recover some costs of repair. Catherine was patient, informative, and had our bests interests at heart. I highly recommend her services.
