Trustworthy and Professional - Cathy, Louise and Deb helped us achieve the excellent result despite the short time frame. We chose their agency over several larger agencies (one was managing the rent) due to their unique knowledge of the area and the buyers they keep in contact. They completed many tasks required for the settlement which saves us a lot of time and money. I would highly recommend Cathy Maria and her team to anyone who is buying or selling in the area.
Louise was very enthusiastic and her personality endeared her to both the buyers and sellers, which is a very real asset when selling real estate. Louise knew the market and was able to offer both historical as well as current information, which proved advantageous. We would not hesitate to recommend Louise in any real estate dealings in the future.

Cathy's experience in the local market proved to be the winner for us. Always being approachable and adaptable helped us feel that our sale was a team effort. Together we've reached our target in what were some challenging market conditions. Many thanks to Cathy and the team for your professionalism, patience and persistence!!
From the minute we contacted Cathy, it was clear that she was not a typical agent. We could rely on her to tell us the truth about the market and realistic pricing. It was always an easy process and Cathy was dealing with someone we had known for years. I have no hesitation in recommending her for your sale or purchase.

Dear Cathy, thankyou for your guidance and support throughout the purchase of mum's new home. We really appreciated you helpfulness and patience throughout the process. Best Wishes.
To whom it may concern,
On behalf of Mannering Park Public School community, I would like to thank you for your contribution and support of our Fete. The day was a big success and without your support this would not have been possible. The funds raised from this event are hopefully going to be allocated to much needed technology that will provide many opportunities for the students at our school.
Thank you for your support.

I would like to express my appreciation for the enthusiastic, professional and personable manner in which you handled the sale of my properties. It was always a delight to work with you and your team and we felt that you were truly interested in achieving a good outcome for your clients. You were dedicated to finding buyers for our properties and matching up buyers with a property that met their needs and objectives.
Over a number of years I have had quite a deal of experience dealing with real estate agents and it was clear to me that you are exceptional in your field. You were innovative, persistent (yes - a bulldog-like trait) and you communicated both regularly as well as whenever any event occurred. It is no surprise that, whereas other agents failed to find buyers for our properties, you were successful - and this success came quickly.
As someone who has been in sales for many years I know the key to continued success is creating deals where each party is happy. This is your forte. I know I was delighted with the deals and the purchasers have told me they were as well.
Without any reservation I can recommend you to any potential vendor or purchaser.
To Cathy and the "A" team - many thanks for your outstanding efforts selling our Summerland Point abode. A pleasant and very professional team!
I would be remiss of us to move to our new home in Queensland without formally recognizing your sterling efforts in ensuring we were able to realise our hopes to "head North".
As you are aware, we were reluctant after some 15 pleasant years in Summerland Point, but needed to make the move for family reasons. You were one of four agents we interviewed prior to putting our home at 28 Gordon Avenue on the market and while all were no doubt eminently qualified and presented well, we were drawn to your excellent local knowledge, record of achievements in the Summerland Point market sales proposal, empathy four our situation and professional demeanour.
There were some difficult moments given the timing of our sales launch - Just prior to Christmas - and with some poor weather complicating the photo/video shoot, but you were committed to the cause and never related in your determination to get us a fair sales result.
You were not deterred by several setbacks and remained focused on the primary objective, going "the extra metre" to get a resolution.
We have been involved in quite a few real estate sales and have never encountered a more professional or committed agent. We are extremely grateful for the efforts of you - and your excellent and pleasant staff - in securing the sale of our property for a fair price in a difficult market.
We greatly appreciate your efforts, wish you well in your future endeavors, and have no hesitation in recommending you to any vendor - or purchaser - wishing to do business with a professional and committed agent who exhibits the highest levels of integrity.
Kind regards, Christine & Geoff Want

I engaged Cathy Maria as the agent for the sale of my lakeside property in Summerland Point. Cathy was fantastic. I am a licensed conveyancer and deal with real estate agents on a daily basis. Cathy is a standout. I received honest feedback after every inspection. Cathy mad me feel that she loved my property as much as i did. She went beyond my expectations with a wonderful video of my home. I found Cathy to be honest and reliable. Cathy negotiated a price for my property that I was more than happy with. I understand the purchasers were more than happy with Cathy's helpful and friendly way of doing business. I would highly recommend Cathy Maria Real Estate to anyone thinking of selling as their agent. I cannot speak more highly of Cathy. Thanks again Cathy.

Back in June of this year my wife and I were faced with the daunting task of selling our two properties situated in the lakeside suburb of Summerland Point.
After meeting with a number of local agents within the area, we signed a sales agreement with Cathy Maria Real Estate.
At first meeting with Cathy,we were instantly made to feel at ease with her friendly down to earth approach.
Cathy has proven to be very dedicated and tireless in her quest to offer a high level of service to both customer
When faced with a complex situation with the sale of our first property, Cathy showed that nothing was to hard for her to resolve and went the extra yard to complete the sale, with minimum stress to both parties.
We were very pleased with this sale as the house was sold in only three weeks at a very satisfactory price.
The sale of our second property was again executed with experience and minimum fuss resulting in a sale of the
Property exceeding price expectations and again sold within three weeks.
We would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Cathy Maria and her team to anyone looking
for a real estate agent who you know will be honest, trustworthy and get the results.
Thank you Cathy and team.

My wife and I recently sold our home through Cathy Maria Real Estate. This whole process was completed in a mere 3 weeks with us getting a better than we expected price thanks to Cathy and the way she presented our house. In this time Cathy and her wonderful team kept us well informed, ringing us after every inspection, giving us plenty of notice before inspections and giving us expert advice regarding the 2 open houses we had. Cathy was not late once with any of the appointments she kept with us, always returned out calls and answered any questions (no matter how silly) we had. I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone if they are selling or looking to buy to use Cathy Maria Real Estate. To sum up Cathy and her team made the selling of our first home a very easy and stress free experience. Once again thank you. Sean, Manda and the boys. April 2013

Cathy and the team were all very professional, enthusiastic and committed in making the process as stress free for us as possible. After a record 21 hours the deal was done. A very prompt and friendly team and we would recommend Cathy Maria Real Estate to anyone thinking of selling their property. Cheers guys, Troy and Tash. February 2013

John and I would like to sincerely thank you for the clear, brisk and friendly manner in which you managed the sale of our home in just one afternoon. In particular, we valued your briefing and your practice of keeping us informed at all times. You made a potentially anxious time a lot easier. We would highly recommend your services to anyone requiring a real estate agent. Congratulations and well done, it have been a delight to do business with you. August 2012
John & Sue Keighran
Thank you for the sale of our home. After starting with a well known real estate we found them very disappointing. It was very refreshing to find an agent who filled our needs. We found Cathy Maria to be outstanding in all aspects of her job and brought about the sale of our home. We look forward to doing business with her in the future and would gladly recommend Cathy to others.
Thank you so very much, Laurence and Michelle. July 2012

Many thanks for selling our house. You tried so hard and suggested an Auction and like you said it would work and you were ‘spot on’. I would recommend an Auction as it brings in more interest than an ordinary “For Sale” signage. Thanks and we would highly recommend you to anyone selling their home.

Cathy has sold two houses for us. We like her “Can do attitude” and her knowhow and love for the local area. Cathy is tenacious and hard working but without appearing too pushy. Cathy is a good negotiator in the sales process and always replied promptly to our phone calls and enquiries.
