Catherine is knowledgeable, savvy, advisor, and most of all she is an advocate for her clients. She went above and beyond for us during our home buying process. Our process was rough, as we had 2 deals that fell through no fault of our own, but she always helped us see the positives in deals that kept us informed and motivated. Once we found a home she made sure to stay on top of contact with the sellers so that we were covered for any type of final permits. She is an excellent realtor.by Jana Elion

Catherine Pabatao was a very hard and dedicated worker. She didn't stop to help me find an apartment until I was satisfied and I am so grateful that I got to work with her.by martinada037
Catherine was awesome to work with. She was professional, understood my situation and took care of things while I was away taking care of other business while trying to sell my house. She was kind and fun to work with and will never forget her.by solyak007
Catherine was a joy to work with. She was diligent throughout the entire process and never got tired of hosting open houses. In the end we ended up in a multi-offer situation that she handled perfectly. I'd highly recommend using Catherine as your agent -- she's really top notch.by Blake DiCosola
Catherine is professional, knowledgeable, timely, sufficient, funny and beautiful. This was my second purchase with Ms. Pabatao. I'm looking forward to working with Catherine on the 3rd, 4th and 5th purchase.by tinasluvnest
Catherine is extremely talented at what she does. I bought my first condo in May of 2018 and she stayed the course. The transaction presented many different challenges due to some additional HOA financial information that wasn't being reported to the lenders satisfaction and she dug into the numbers, did research and talked to the lender and Mgmt office to make-it-happen! She also helped me to determine the true value of a place and to really listen to what I truly wanted out of the entire experience. Catherine helped me to grow my expectations and to expect more from what a place that I wasn't super in love with. She communicated each listing's potential and matched my true needs to the lifestyle that I truly wanted. Catherine is the "Real Estate Whisperer" by all means. Lastly, she has a vast network of professionals that helped me to renovate my place to my taste. Without a doubt she is the #1 and will be referred always.by L.Williams
