Cathy has been absolutely awesome! We learned more about the homebuying and VA loan process/ requirements in our first phone call with her than we learned in months of research on our own. Cathy showed us a dozen homes in different cities. She referred us to a great lender also. When we finally found "the ONE", she put her negotiation skills to work! We got exactly what we wanted! She stayed in contact with us daily and followed up on every litte detail. Even after closing and the weeks after our move in, she has kept in touch to ensure our move in has been smooth. Thanks to Cathy, we had a very stress-free home buying experience. She feels like part of our family! In a few years, when we decide to purchase again, she will be our first phone call.
Cathy Smith is a consummate real estate professional in every regard. She sold our house when the economy was horrible and the market was down. Using all the tools at her disposal, she guided us through the selling process step by step. She proved her knowledge of the North Carolina housing market was invaluable. She is honest, persistent and extremely professional. Her integrity, hard-work and can-do attitude set her apart from other realtors that we have worked with in the past. Her selling strategy ensured the successful sale of our house. She remained enthusiastic, positive, and totally honest with me the entire time. Follow her recommendations, they work. I have and will continue to enthusiastically recommend Cathy Smith as Realtor. THANK YOU CATHY for a Job Well Done!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Lillington, NC.
Cathy is a very professional agent. She really knows her business and really pays attention to all the details. She helped my son find a house that was perfect for him (I think we seen almost every house in Harnett County in the process). She went above and beyond the "call of duty". She also helped my husband and I sell our house. Cathy is excellent at helping to stage a house. With th economy the way it is, we were still able to sell our house iin 6 months of first listing it. Cathy also helped us find our dream home.
Even after the final closings on the house we sold and the one we purchased she has stayed in contact and followed up several times to see if we had any questiions or needed anything. Cathy isn't just in it for the commission, she takes real pleasure in helping people find what they want. We highly recommed her!!!
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $300K in Coats, NC.
Cathy ensured that we were in on everything that was going on during the process. All of our emails, phone conversations, and meetings were positive, matter of fact, and options were shared. Cathy had people that she has worked with in the past that could help from the mortgage, all the way through the inspections.
At the time that I was purchasing my new home, I was also selling my other home. Cathy gave me a name of another agent, and he turned out to be perfect for our needs. When I spoke with him, he informed me that Cathy interviewed him as if he were selling her home, I mean, who does this, but she did for us!
If I every sell again, I will call Cathy, and if I know someone selling or buying, Cathy will be first on my list. Cathy made us feel like we were part of the family! Even now, if I need someone to do something around the house, I call Cathy, and the person she recommends is spot on!
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $350K in Benson, NC.
We met Cathy in June 2009 while looking for our first home together. After she took the time to show us our first selection, we decided to list our existing homes with her. So glad we did! Cathy helped us with closings on 5 properties in the next 10 months. Working with real esate transactions might be a daunting task for most, but we actually looked foward to working with Cathy. She made all of our closings seem almost fun.
In life its not what you know , but WHO you know, we know CATHY!
She is the best.
