Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $950K in Brentwood, Los Angeles, CA.
I have worked with Cathy, on both the selling and buying side, for 7 years. She is the consummate professional. My latest transaction involved selling a condominium in Brentwood. Cathy provided the most accurate market research, the most astute marketing plan and was able to bring the most qualified agents and buyers to the property. As such, the transaction was truly seamless.

I cannot recommend Cathy highly enough. I have purchased and sold properties in 4 states and have never worked with someone so professional, so knowledgable and so compassionate. She is a person of great character and substance.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $2.175M in Westwood, Los Angeles, CA.
Cathy was very helpful in quickly negotiating and closing my purchase. We were looking in Little Holmby and Brentwood; she was very knowledgeable about all transactions and inventory in both areas. In addition to the real estate transaction, Cathy, both pre and post close, gave us referrals for loans, contractors, decorators, etc. Truly full service. I bought the house with my girlfriend (now my wife) and I practically thought Cathy would perform the wedding ceremony too :)

With regard to geography, Cathy has the westside covered. My house is in Little Holmby, Cathy's office is in Brentwood, and she lives in Malibu. I can recommend her for any property from Beverly Hills to Malibu.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.8M in Westwood, Los Angeles, CA.
I am pleased to inform that I am very satisfied in making business with Cathy Wood in the purchase and selling of my home. The process was fast and interesting because the first day I put my home for sale It was sold. And as for the purchase i made on a home she was very attentive of my questions and made my purchase experience a pleasure. From The first encounter i felt comfortable and sure that she was the right person to help me search for a home and sell my own. Up to now the home i recently purchased with her I have been very satisfied the four months i have been living here.Up to date she is still in contact with me and is aware if i have any issues regarding the property. I personally recomend her to anyone who is in search of purchasing and selling a home. She is there for your needs and without a doubt satisfaction is guaranteed.

Sincerely, John W. Long

Working with Cathy Woods was a dream. She is extremly knowledgeable & up to date on current inventory that is available. She made looking for a home with the criteria we gave her very easy & enjoyable. She worked tirelessly in looking for exactly what we wanted & followed through all the way to the point of handing the keys to us for our new home. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her & I will with out any doubt recommend her to everyone I know who is looking for a new home.

Sold a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $650K in Century City, Los Angeles, CA.
In mid-2009, I listed the sale of my condo near Century City with Cathy Wood. The economy was in free-fall and the condo market had grown a little soft. But Cathy was optomistic and kept my spirits up as we plowed through the paperwork and requirements to sell a condo under California law.

Cathy's masterful knowledge and skill in how to generate interest and market a property is the reason I was under contract within a few weeks of listing. Many problems came up with the buyer's lender while we were in escrow, but Cathy never gave up, and continued to find and provide all the necessary documents required by the lenders and their constant badgering about HOA issues. I was a wreck about the possibility of a collapsed deal, but Cathy kept reassuring me that she and her company, Gibson International, had attorneys and mortgage experts availabe when needed.

I'm convinced that I never would have gotten the price I did without Cathy's guidance on staging, timing, and where to negotiate and where not to. She made the stressful process of selling my condo home into a smooth and fair transfer for both the seller and the buyer.

So many agents disappear on a client once they get the listing. Cathy Wood is truly present and available, and she really cares about her clients' struggles with the process. I would recommend her to anyone who needed a real estate agent to help them sell or find the right home. She "gets it" and treats each client with the individual care they deserve.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Westwood, Los Angeles, CA.
Cathy Wood facilitated the sale of our Westwood home......they don't come any better! She found a buyer in 3 weeks on a contingency basis, then sold HIS home in one day! Cathy did a huge amount of research so the pricing was just right, advertised the home beautifully, was always available for showings no matter what time of day. We were out of town during this whole process so Cathy was instrumental in arranging repairs, inspections and appointments. I just can't say enough about the excellent job Cathy did for us! Most importantly, her honesty and genuine character stands above all others, not to mention her smile lights up a room. I highly recommend Cathy Wood if you want a caring and talented real estate agent. Many many thanks Cathy!

Cathy Wood served as the real estate broker in the purchase of our first home. She was very responsive to our requests, quick to produce the paperwork that needed to be completed and worked with the sellers and ourselves to get the deal done.

Sold a home in 2008.
Cathy is our realtor and we are so happy with her work. We would not have anyone else help us with our RE needs. She sold a large home for us in Bel-Air and we got top price. She also helped us buy our home in Camarillo. She is so familiar with the Westside and Malibu and even Ventura County. She was born and raised in the area and knows it like the back of her hand. We have reccommended her to several people who are equally as happy with her service. Thanks Cathy.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $4.0M in Santa Monica, CA.
Cathy Wood handled the listing and sale of a home my mother lived in for 47 years. She balanced this sensitive territory with compassion, along with hard professional management. Cathy's advice and attention to detail was spot on -- for every aspect of selling a house in a relatively depressed market. She was always there for the late night panic calls regarding a host of problems that inevitably crop up with buyer demands and.

Also, Cathy was great about helping with matters that were over and above the call of duty. She assisted with finding the right person to arrange and conduct a successful estate sale of the home's contents. She had all the right resources at her finger tips for things like, who to call to hall away piles of "junk", what charities are best at picking up donations, etc. I can't say enough wonderful things about Cathy, and how sincere her attention to the family needs affected the ease of the sale.

Cathy's marketing skills and how to amp up excitement for the property, along with how to stage the house for open houses, are those of a true talent. Cathy is a born salesman and business woman, who senses the needs of her clients and the feel of the marketplace. Following her excellent preparation to show the property, my mother's house was under contract within 24 hours of the first brokers' open house -- with 2 solid backup offers to boot! The 60 day escrow and all the miserable inspections were gracefully tended to by Ms. Wood, and escrow closed on time with the help and attention given by her escrow company of choice.

Cathy is a native Los Angeles citizen, knows the ins and out of the West LA area, Malibu, Santa Monica, San Fernando Valley, Culver City -- you name it, and Cathy is familiar with every street, small business and school district. In short, Cathy is the best -- and a realtor who really delivers for her client -- with unmatchable grace and charm.
