As a first time homebuyer, I must admit that at first I tried several realtors to find the right rep I can (comfortably) work with. Majority of the ones I met seemed to be commission-driven. They want quick sale to get their share. Then I met Cathy Bess. I decided to work with her and aren't I glad I did! I had proven to myself Cathy's true intention... and that is to help out her clients. She's been around in business for a long time. She's knowledgeable, professional, great communication skills, and very detail-oriented. For someone who is very specific about EVERYTHING, I was really glad to find someone just like me! Less things for me to worry about because I had the peace of mind that she's doing her job, and she does it well! Even when she went out of state a couple of times, she was still communicating with me, working while on vacation with her family! That's dedication right there. And I definitely love the fact that her and the lender she referred me to worked so well together. They had bent backwards, many times, to assist me with a very difficult process in my homebuying experience. We all communicated and worked well together. They guided me really well in making the best decision in this homebuying process, especially this by far is the biggest investment of my life being a first time homebuyer.
After shopping around for a home insurance, Cathy recommended a company which I ended switching my auto insurance to combined with a home insurance because that company were able to save me money compare to all the other companies I got quotes from. She even recommended a painter and a "handyman" to help repair some minor things at my new house and install the appliances needed for the inspection. She herself even educated me about some things I didn't know about around the house that didn't even fit in her job description anymore, like sprinklers, changing and making the filter fit in the AC vent, etc.
Overall, Cathy Bess is awesome! She is trustworthy. She has gone above and beyond for me to make my life-long dream come true. Working with her for 4 months or so, she became more than just a Realtor, she is like a friend and a mother to me. I highly recommend Cathy Bess and the Lender, Cea-Jae Howie, to anyone looking to buy a property. I hope to continue a life-long relationship with these awesome people!
