We engaged Cathy to sell our home and were thrilled with the result she got us.  Cathy had a very short period to sell our house and worked tirelessly, providing us with sound advice and guidance.  Cathy always kept us informed and would always be available to discuss anything day or night.  We can highly recommend Carthy to anyone who is looking for a hardworking, ethical and friendly agent.  Vendors - Sarah & Jo, Christchurch

We contracted Cathy to market and sell our house, following a recommendation from friends who had recently used Cathy to successfully sell their property.  They were very satisfied with the results, and complementary to Cathy's capabilities.  Cathy has a calm and honest personality, and made us feel comfortable throughout the sales promotion and auction process.  She gave regular feedback, reports on internet traffic, prospective buyers and meetings to update progress, etc.  Her hard work and dedication to us, resulted in a sale price which exceeded our original expectations.  We can recommend Cathy as a competent, dedicated and hard working real estate agent, achieving the best result for her client.  Vendors - John & Gail, Christchurch

My wife, Gillian Penlington, and I were the owners of an investment residential property at 35 Idris Road, Fendalton, Christchurch.  It was damaged in the Christchurch earthquakes.  As a result, it was classified as an over cap Insurance repair.  After the repairs were completed we placed it in the hands of Cathy Carter for marketing and, ultimately sale by public auction.  Cathy worked assiduously on our behalf during the marketing campaign.  She kept us well informed as to the interest in the property.  She promptly referred to us all questions raised as to the repairs to the property, our dealings with EQC and similar matters.  She took great care in understanding the questions and our responses so that she could accurately reply to the inquirers.  She followed up those who had expressed a genuine interest and who appeared to be possible buyers.  As well, during the campaign she reported on the market trends and she gave us helpful guidance in the setting of the reserve.  In the event we were satisfied with the selling price.  We found Cathy to be an extremely pleasant person to deal with.  At all times she acted in a thoroughly professional way.
