“Mary Ann and I wanted to thank you for all the help and insight you provided as we looked for a new home for our family. It was a very stressful time, but you made it much easier. We felt very confident with you on our side. You are a true professional…and outstanding Realtor…and a friend. Thank you.” ~Tim and Mary Ann Hughes
“Thank you very much for all of your assistance (and hand holding) throughout our home purchasing process. We will highly recommend you to anyone moving to the Richmond area. We seem to have been blessed in many ways throughout our move and we are certainly thankful to have found you!” ~ Judy and Jim Watson
"Catherine quickly helped us identify the type of home we were looking for—price, location, school district appropriate to our needs. Catherine was aggressive in a Southern-gentile way, for setting up appointments and getting us into the right kinds of houses we needed to see. It took us only a couple of outings to find the one we knew would become a comfortable home for our family." ~Ray and Norren Deyo
