    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    I spent 33 years as a school teacher and counselor. I built a reputation as an ethical and hard working person. I brought those values to real estate.
    I was born in Mena, Arkansas and raised in Fort Smith. I lived in Fayetteville the first few years after college, eventually returning to the Fort Smith area. In 2005, my husband and I returned to NWA, where we intend to stay. I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor's in Special Education, which I taught for 12 years. I then earned my Master's in Counseling an spent the next 21 years working as a school counselor. After 33 years I spent in education! I decided it was time for a change. I am now going on 3 years in Real Estate, and proud of the success that I have had. I am GRI certifed.
    On a personal note, I have been married going on 37 years. We are both animal nuts, and have four tiny dogs and two cats. One of my dogs attended school with me the last three years of my education career. He is an Internationally Certified Therapy Dog. I love finding people their dream homes and selling homes when you are ready to move on. My promise is to take care of you so that the buying and selling process is less stressful. I will not disappoint you!

    I am beyond grateful that Cathy and I crossed paths. I admire her for her determination when selling my old home and passion when finding my new one. Cathy is always a phone call away to answer all my questions and I am not sure how many miles and hours we hunted for the right home but she did it... I close Wednesday morning. What a honor to have worked with her... I highly recommend her services!

    Cathy is a not only a superior realtor but a great person that it has been an honor too work with in finding and buying our home. Cathy has the knowledge in every aspect of home buying and always guided us in the right direction. Cathy deserves more then 5 stars .My wife and I will always be grateful for the effort that Cathy did in getting us our home. I would recommend Cathy Sanders for anyone needing to buy or sell a home.

    We have had many realtors in our lives but I can honestly say we have never had one as helpful, knowledgable, and personable as Cathy. She was truly a godsend. No matter what outlandish request we had, she took it seriously and made sure it happened for us. We trekked all across NWA to find our perfect house - up dirt roads we weren't sure were actually going to lead anywhere. I'm not sure how many miles we put on her car, but she never complained and was always happy to help, make recommendations, and tell us what she really thought. At the end of the journey, we not only had a great house but a new friend for life. Thanks, Cathy! You're one in a million!

    Cathy has been by my side through all the trials of selling my house. When I wanted to just give up, she didn't let me.

    I am very happy that Cathy and I ended up as a team both on buying my new house and selling my old. That is one of her strengths...having me as part of her team. Cathy constantly kept me informed of new listings in my range and immediately showed me those I wanted to see. When there she informed me all details of home. Even though she explained as we went along buying and selling, when I had any questions throughout the processes Cathy answered quickly, clearly and patiently. I am a person who always has questions. Anytime I heard of an available house that wasn't listed, she researched it. She showed respect for the other agents & never said anything negative about them or other companies. In all of the paperwork involved, she handled it promptly and never missed a beat. Glad she was organized as I wasn't! If I wondered about something, such as inspections, she had already handled it! So I just quit worrying! She seemed to work 24/7 !! Always positive no matter the circumstances. Cathy did a tremendous job with the listing of my condo, worked so hard getting all details correct and attractive, multiple showings, offers, and was available always as had 2 offers immediately so lots to keep on top of. I will definitely recommend Cathy to anyone needing a super realtor!! Professionally, but also as a caring, understanding and kind person!!

    We moved here to retire. We were new to the area and knew that NWA was the place we wanted to be. We found Catherine and she found our dream home for us. Catherine had shown us several homes all over the NWA area. They were all very nice. Our dream home came on the market and Catherine got us in to see the home the day it came on the market. She was spot on and let us know this home would sell very quickly. We moved quickly and put in a bid. Catherine contacted the seller personally and let the seller know we were the right people for this home. There were many offers being made for this home. The seller listened to Catherine and agreed that we were a perfect fit for this beautiful home. Escrow took less than a month. Catherine was there for us the whole process. We could not have found a nicer home or a nicer person to help us find our home. Thank you Catherine. We love our new home.

    We are very pleased with the way Cathy marketed our home. She arranged for professional photos which showcased our home beautifully. Within 48 hours of listing our house, she secured a full price, cash offer, which closed within less than 30 days.

    Cathy is just wonderful! I simply cannot say enough about how positive my experience was with her. She was incredibly easy to talk to and genuinely interested in helping me find the right home. I always felt at ease with her and she went out of her way to assist me throughout the entire home buying process. She understands the market well and helped me secure the perfect home at a time when I really needed a change. I can truly say that Cathy was not just a realtor, but a friend. I highly recommend that you to give Cathy a call. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

    Cathy was amazing to work with! The best! I wouldn't call my self a homeowner if it wasn't for her. My home buying process was difficult, I believe if i would have gone with another realtor they would had given up on me. I would 100% recommend Cathy to everyone! She is the best out there.

    We absolutely loved working with Cathy. It was our first time buying a home and we actually found Cathy by luck. I had reached out online about wanting to see a house and Cathy was the agent that was there to meet us when we arrived. We enjoyed her services so much that we decided that while that house may not have been the right house for us, Cathy sure was. So we continued to work with Cathy over the next few months - she was extremely patient with us as we went back and forth on budget and wants. At one point we had to put the search on hold to prepare for our upcoming wedding. Cathy was so understanding and let us have the time we needed. Once the wedding was over, Cathy was back at it helping us search for our first home. By this point we had a much better idea of the type of house we wanted, but it was somewhat of finding a needle in a haystack. Come March 2018, I get a text from Cathy at probably 8 or 9 at night (she never stops working for her clients) letting me know that a house had just come on the market that she felt would be a perfect fit. We agreed! Cathy got a showing setup for the very next afternoon and by that night we had an offer in on the house, along with 20 other people. Cathy was absolutely amazing at helping guide us through the closing process. Without her, I do not think we would be in the house of our dreams that we are in today. Cathy has continued to stay in touch and check on how things are going. She has some of the best customer service of anyone I have every worked with. We hope to have her over when we are done fixing up our home that she helped us find.

    Cathy Sanders was a wonderful realtor, she was beyond patient with me and when most would have thrown in the towel, she stayed the course. Cathy was attentive to my needs and was never once overbearing or pushy. I highly recommend Cathy and would absolutely use her expertise again. Sp

    Cathy is a wonderful professional who listens to her clients and truly wants to help them find the home or property that is the most perfect for them. She was very patient, understanding, and accommodating as I moved from trying to find a property that came with a modular but also on which I could build a home (I realized I am not a modular home person.) to finding the perfect place on a couple of acres for me to relax and enjoy after a long and busy work day/week. Cathy added to my list of homes daily always keeping my primary requests in mid and was able to schedule viewings in a timely manner often within a day. Her recommendations for a home inspector saved me from purchasing a home with several costly imminent repairs the price of which I did not have in my home purchasing budget. Cathy cares about her clients first. Throughout the process, her actions made it clear that I was what was important, and she worked diligently to insure I enjoyed the entire home buying process as well as my new home. I assure all who read this review. I did.

    Cathy has been an amazing help for us in the house-hunting process. Her knowledge of the business and her dedication are exceptional! She has done so much research on our behalf, and we think we have found the house we're looking for--because of Cathy!

    I've been recently working with Cathy Sanders in my search for a new home. Her attention to me has been exceptional. She has searched areas that I would have never been able to find on my own and the results have produced for me many options. Cathy is witty and fun- thorough and professional. The main thing I like about her is that she is never pushy but always available. If you see this, Cathy-- thank you!
