    Over the years, Cathy has helped us buy and sell our homes. She is an absolute professional and a pleasure to work with. There are so many qualities that I appreciate about Cathy - from being quick to respond and always available, to her thorough knowledge and many years of experience in all areas of real estate. Whether you're in the market to buy or sell, Cathy Bates is the agent you need to get the result you want. She will not disappoint!
    Barbara gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Working with Cathy was an absolute pleasure. Cathy helped us with our first purchase when we moved to the area 11 years ago. So when the time to sell came, I never thought about listing with anyone else. Cathy's top quality is that she presents all of your options with facts to back up what she is saying and then takes a step back to let you decide your course of action. She is always willing to offer advice or make suggestions if you are struggling with a decision. However, you always feel in control of the transaction and never feel pushed in a direction you are not comfortable with. Easy going and calm as can be are the other things I loved about working with Cathy. Purchasing or selling a home can be one of the biggest decisions you can make in your life time. I was never overwhelmed or fearful about any part of the process and that was due to how open, friendly and professional Cathy is. You cannot go wrong working with her--such a great choice to be your Realtor!

    We love Cathy! She is very dedicated to her work and she always has represented us fairly and honestly. She has sold 5 properties for us in the past 4 years and works hard for her clients!

    Cathy's service certainly exceeded our expectations. We moved from California to Florida and Cathy provided confidence and great communication through the whole process. We found her to be flexible and showed excellent creativity and knowledge so the sell of our home in San Jacinto went smoothly through out the whole process. We could not have picked a more knowledgeable and professional realtor.
    David gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    You would be hard pressed to find a better realtor than Cathy. I had to sell my stepmother's house in an area that I was not familiar with the local market. I relied on Cathy's expertise immensely and my trust in her was completely justified. Her complete knowledge of the gated community my step mother lived in (Estates at San Jacinto) was incredibly helpful as she identified many upgrades in the house and knew all of the local people required to network with to insure the sale went smoothly. Cathy made the selling process incredibly smooth and kept in close communication. Also, of particular helpfulness, was Cathy's extended network which was invaluable in completing an Estate Sale. I highly recommend Cathy.
    Diane gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy provided excellent service to my mother and I with the sale of my mother's house after my father passed away. She explained everything and helped with so many details since we were out of town. Highly recommend to anyone looking for excellent realtor
    Barbara gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    I have had the pleasure of working with Cathy twice now! She found our families perfect home 8 years ago and this year she helped us sell our family home. Cathy was always available to answer questions and she was very thorough in her explanation of things through the selling process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their a home!
    Bonnie gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy was referred to me an$ my husband by a close friend who had her parent's house sold by her. Cathy was very thorough explaining the many pages we had to read and sign. She helped us by managing the repairs after our house was broken into since we were out of state. Even though we had to drop the price of our house several times, I I felt she did a very satisfactory job selling our house in a falling market. I would definitely recommend her.
    Jim gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy did a great job of showcasing our home in a neighborhood of falling values. She met with us to explain the process and communicated with us regularly when we were out of state (about half of the time).

    Dave gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy was a terrific help during our 4 month odyssey to find a new home for our parents, Four buyers is more challenging than usual. Cathy helped to explain the processes and options to all of us. I was not surprised by her expertise because she has helped my wife and I with several sales and purchases before. Thank you, Cathy!
    Tina gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    My husband and I have worked with Cathy Bates on a few house transactions over the years. Whether we're buying or selling, Cathy is excellent to work with. She is always available, patient, and has a good sense of humor. She has recently helped us find a house for my parents and, throughout the process, my mom has just loved her! I want to thank Cathy for her knowledge, understanding and for always having a smile when we called her at 8:30PM on a Tuesday or 9:00AM on a Sunday. Thank you Cathy!!

    We have dealt with Cathy on the buying and selling of our home. Cathy is very knowledgeable and is dedicated to helping you sell your house. She is always willing to go the extra mile for her clients and is very responsive to your needs and phone calls.
    Frank gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    We have purchased 2 houses from Cathy in the past, she always is a pleasure to work with. I would rate her as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable in her field. We have referred several of our friends to her, because we know they will experience the same professionalism as we have. When the day comes that we decide to relocate again, we are definitely going to enlist her services. She never stops trying to make our experience as easy and quick as possible, working no matter what time of the day you call for her. Her work ethic has won our patronage for years to come.
    Coralyn gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Our home buying experience with Cathy Bates was as enjoyable and stress free as it could possibly be. Buying a home and being in escrow historically had been a very arduous and taxing experience. Cathy's knowledge of areas to look out for and questions to ask was invaluable. She negotiated for us and we always felt like she was as excited for us as we were. She quickly responded to our myriad of questions and never seemed bothered. She was always professional and was knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods and different parts of town. We always trusted that she had our best interest at heart.
    Carrie gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy is the ultimate professional! She took the time to get to know us and found us the perfect home! We plan on this being our forever home and I couldn't ask for anything better than what she found for us! I would certainly steer family and friends to Cathy for their home purchasing needs. She will do right by you so if you need a realtor do not hesitate to choose Cathy Bates.
    Danny gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy Bates, Is the ultimate real estate professional. I've worked with Cathy for the past 13 years. Her communication skills are her top attribute and her attention to detail makes the home buyer or selling process so trusting and stress free. Her local knowledge of the market is second to none. Her constant focus on real estate education keeps her on top of all new trends. I totally recommend Cathy for all your real estate needs.
    Ken gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy absolutely went above and beyond the call of duty helping with sale of the two homes in an astonishingly short amount of time to satisfy the Probate Court. With the family being out of state, she helped immensely informing us California laws, requirements, scheduling, online E-signatures and tons more of which we are greatly indebted to her professionalism and service to the industry. I would expect her talent/customer service to set a standard of quality with Coldwell Banker if she hasn't already. Thank you again Cathy for all your hard work!!!
    Matt gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5

    There are not enough stars to show how wonderful Cathy Bates is. She always makes time for her client and works very hard to assure everything is done right and in a professional manner. If you are looking for a local trust worthy realtor, look no further. Cathy has extensive knowledge of the area and can recommend schools, wonderful outdoor activities, and some of her favorite restaurants. Buying or selling your home can be a daunting and scary task. A simple phone call to Cathy Bates and turn your experience into a pleasant one. I personally, highly recommend Cathy Bates.
    Pat and Jan gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Cathy is very professional and knowledgeable in the Real Estate world as a past Real Estate Broker I know what its takes and the time you have to spend, well Cathy knows that as well. She knows the market and financing and she takes that valuable time to make sure her client knows as well. Cathy is not in a hurry she makes sure you understand everything about the sale. Even if you have silly questions she answers with out laughing, Cathy makes sure to keep you informed every step of the way. We only have good things to say about our experience with selling our home and Cathy as our agent.
    Chris gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    I will only work with Cathy for the rest of my life! Cathy was knowledgeable, efficient, and treated my fiance and me like close friends, but this isn't the best part. The experience of buying a home is fun, scary, exhilarating, worrisome, and all around a gambit of emotions. Cathy really drives a very wholesome and engaging experience. She balanced out our worries with solid information. She amplified our fun. She calmed our fears. She made us the focal point of this experience, not the sale. Cathy was recommended to me, and I highly recommend her. Words cannot explain our genuine feeling of gratitude, nor our highly positive experiences. Great person, great service, great experience!
    Stephanie gave Cathy 5 stars out of 5
    Having lived in my new home for over a year, I am so appreciative of my realtor Cathy Bates. My home has delivered the kind of warmth and security that she knew my family and I were looking for. She was there for us every step of the way and let us know what to expect from our purchase. Her dedication and knowledge led us to a great home-buying experience and to the perfect home for my family. I would choose Cathy again and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a professional, trustworthy, dedicated realtor.
