Usually, sales people scare me. I loathe the slime that tends to come with the territory. I fear the pushy attitudes. And I hate being sold on something.

She knew, and made it clear to us, that our home of interest was a very good value. When looking around a house during a showing, she spots the positives and negatives that you may not notice.<br/><br/>-Nights and weekends?

Bought a home in 2013 in Plainville, CT 06053.

Cathy Dionne is the antithesis of the previous paragraph.

Know the following:

-She understood our budget, and never attempted to take us out of our comfort zone.

-She was in near constant contact, offering much-needed market updates and informing us of the status of our offer.

-She has razor sharp instincts for the market. She knew, and made it clear to us, that our home of interest was a very good value. When looking around a house during a showing, she spots the positives and negatives that you may not notice.

-Nights and weekends? I'll put it this way: On a FRIDAY NIGHT, she set the gears in motion to get some much needed paperwork done for a Saturday morning. God bless her hard work.

-She was our psychiatrist when we needed it. "You're probably going to feel a little nauseous when you make an offer, it is a big commitment after all" she semi-jokingly told us. It's true... buying a home can surely be nerve wracking.

-Explainer extraordinaire. Being first-timers, we know very little about home buying, a fact that some agents could otherwise prey on. Cathy took the time to explain every step in the process, every piece of legal mumbo-jumbo, and every sheet of paper we were signing.

As of this review, we are now under contract on a beautiful home that my fiancée and I could stay in until we retire. Cathy helped us get there. It's funny, because I met first met her a house that she was the listing agent on, a house we ultimately didn't want. But that casual meeting led to the best relationship with a real estate agent that my fiancée and I could possibly imagine.

The phrase "highly recommended" would be a grotesque understatement.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Newington, CT.

My requirements were that I wanted to sell my house quickly and get the best price without a lot of trouble.My agent had to be able to put me first, be knowledgeable and be willing to seek out information, have professional connections, know how to market, and have the skills to deal with a diverse public. Cathy Dionne met all these and more. She was personable and professional. The result was a mutually successful experience.

Showed home in 2013 in Bull Run Corner, Windsor Locks, CT 06096.

Cathy is knowledgable, prompt with answers, and always on time. Cathy responds almost immediately to any request or question we may have. If Cathy doesn't know the answer, she will find it. We are comfortable with her, she is a step ahead of us and always reassuring. She's even made the experience fun and smooth for our 9 year old daughter. I would recommend Cathy to anyone of my friends or family. I'm happy we are working with her to find our new home.
