Working with Cathy to sell our home was an amazing experience from start to finish. Her advice about staging, timing, and pre-showing minor repairs was spot on. Her marketing expertise resulted in many showings. Cathy’s negotiating skills were top-notch: she was professional and tenacious, and her work with potential buyers and their agents resulted in several offers and an eventual cash sale for over asking price. In addition, she was empathetic and compassionate. Without hesitation I highly recommend Cathy for any real estate purchase or sale!

We first met Cathy when we were considering rentals in Northern Westchester. We thought about testing the waters of living outside New York City. But then we decided to look for something to buy. There were many properties that Cathy took us to see. After getting to know us a bit and understanding what would work for us, she always had a keen eye out for our needs. We zeroed in on some properties, but never grabbed the brass ring. Her advice was always on the money and when we found the right place, her expertise and contacts made the progress toward the contract and the closing all that much easier for us.

Over the course of looking for and purchasing our first home, my husband and I worked with three different agents, Cathy being the third. Third time's the charm indeed!! Cathy was the best possible agent we could have imagined. Not only were we first time home-buyers, but we were new to the area we moved (from the City); Cathy provided such an immense amount of process expertise and local knowledge, with an unparalleled work ethic. We truly could not have bought our home without her--truly. Cathy served as both a mentor and friend, as we dealt with the roller coaster of emotions involved in making offers, negotiating, researching septic tank sizes, coordinating with inspectors, etc. Throughout it all, we felt confident knowing she was in our corner, putting everything she could into helping us find and secure the right home. We could not more highly recommend Cathy!

Catherine Workman was absolutely essential to us finding our dream home. We were new to the entire process and she not only walked us through every single step but provided expert counsel along the way. Her tireless work on our behalf meant we were able to find the perfect home quickly and understand each and every step thoroughly. Her extensive experience and knowledge of the local area helped us narrow our search to properties that were right for us. We will always be grateful to her and would recommend that anyone looking for a home get in contact. You will see what we mean.

Cathy was a total gift to us during what is typically a very stressful time. She was very knowledgeable about the area and extremely transparent about the entire process, which is critical to first-time buyers. Most importantly, her judgment was spot-on. She was candid when needed, and when you're in the thick of searching for a home, that's invaluable. We completely trusted Cathy's expertise on overall market perceptions and really valued her opinion, no matter how trivial the matter was. Cathy was accessible, responsive, and just generally a total delight to work with. We recommend her highly and hope to work with her again!

Cathy is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is responsive, knowledgeable, thorough, and importantly, extremely ethical. Since closing on our home, we miss speaking with her every day! Can't recommend her enough.

My husband and I truly cannot speak highly enough regarding our experience with Cathy. The process of buying and selling at the same time was a stressful time but Cathy could not have been more helpful and patient. She was extremely knowledgeable and guided us through the entire process. While looking at homes, Cathy was patient, never pushy, and always allowed us the time we needed. She took the time to schedule houses that were right in the ballpark of what we were looking for and ultimately helped us find our dream home. We could not be happier with our new home and certainly could not have made it through the process without the help of Cathy!

My husband and I just bought a gorgeous home in Bedford, NY. We worked with Cathy from the very beginning and couldn't have been in better hands. Cathy knows the area like the back of her hand. She "got us" instantly and we never felt as if we wasted a moment in our search. In addition to her great taste in homes, she was relaxing and fun to work with. In general, she was a fountain of knowledge. We very quickly trusted her implicitly and our trust was rewarded. We move in next week, can't wait! Thank you for everything, Cathy!

We want to thank you again for everything you've done to help us find our new home.
This was a big move--and change--for E and me, and you guided us through the process smoothly, professionally, and in a manner that could not have been more helpful or more graceful. E and I are deeply grateful.

Cathy was a pleasure to work with. We are so happy that we found someone who truly cared and put forth true effort in helping us with our purchase. Buying while selling was an uphill battle for us personally, but Cathy was there for us, guided us, and worked to make sure we had every resource we needed ASAP.

From day one Cathy made the process of buying our first home a pleasurable and positive experience. We connected with her instantly, she was easy to talk with, always attentive and quick to respond to all of our questions and concerns. Our worries were smashed by Cathy's dedication and expertise. Cathy's determination to find us our new home was relentless! We were both new to the area and she was extremely knowledgeable of our desired area. Cathy's patience and care guided us to a successful purchase! We've been in our new home for a few months now and I still reach out to our local guru, Cathy for advice. As always, she couldn't be more helpful or kind.

My husband and I cannot say enough praises on Cathy. She worked tirelessly for us to find our dream house and had her finger on the pulse of the market getting us in to see multiple houses before they were listed, including our dream house that we purchased. She is patient, not pushy, easy to work with and talk to, has an excellent sense of the market and an amazing negotiator

I recently had the pleasure of working with Cathy to help my husband and I look for homes in Westchester. She was knowledgeable, patient, honest, and really had our best interests in mind. I’ve worked with other realtors in the past and in my opinion Cathy is by far the best. I highly recommend her!
