Some Tampa Bay area REALTORS® focus on listing and selling the highest priced homes, Cathy DesMarais prefers to focus on the people rather than the price of their homes. While Cathy enjoys every one of her real estate clients, she's especially fond of first time buyers, first time sellers, and empty nesters that are downsizing. These "First timers" and seniors who haven't been involved in a real estate transaction in recent years do need more information than more experienced clients, and she's happy to provide it.
Cathy also believes that each of her clients deserves her undivided attention. She won't take attention away from one client to check email, answer a call, or send a text message to another. Instead she makes every effort to respond within two hours, even during evening hours and on week-ends. Buying or selling a home can be stressful as well as exciting, so she lets her clients know that they can count on her to be at their side through the entire process. She's only a phone call away.

Cathy takes the time to explain the entire buying and selling process and the purpose of each document used so that her clients know what to expect at each step. She's admittedly obsessive-compulsive about details, so makes sure all agreements are complete, concise, and correct. She says it's worth the extra time and effort to make sure that her clients are never hit with surprises that she could have prevented.

 I am obsessive about customer service – and will remains so. Through years of providing excellent customer service I have learned the skill of listening. Using this skill I can hear what the customer wants and use this skill to exceed the clients' expectations. I love being more personally involved with my clients and helping make their dreams come true.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Valrico, FL.

Cathy is not only a great Realtor but is also become a good friend. Cathy made herself available every day of the week to help us find the house that was right for us. She is not a pushy Realtor and put our best interest in mind.

Cathy was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in finding the right house in the right area by being attentive to our needs and timeline. She was hard working and communicative throughout the whole process to make a house-to-house move as smooth as possible. Thanks again, Cathy, for the house warming gift!  More Less

Cathy assisted me with purchasing a townhome for my son to live in. Cathy was instrumental in getting the perfect home. Cathy was very responsive and the transaction went smoothly!
