Cathy Lyons is the absolute best agent ever! After describing to Cathy what I did and didn't want in a home in the Raleigh area, she was perfect in providing me options to review and look at. I was coming from San Antonio, Texas and she spent countless hours driving me all over the RTP area to help me get a lay of the land. Once I narrowed down my search area, Cathy was great in sending me frequent updates - I talked to Cathy more than my own mother during my house hunting process!! Once I found "the" house, Cathy quickly got everything rolling, she was quick to push back with the seller when needed, but also kept my expectations realistic, which I appreciated. Cathy even drove my future neighborhood and talked to folks who were randomly outside, with me on her bluetooth, to ask their opinion about the neighborhood! I could not have asked for anyone better, and Cathy went above and beyond at every turn. I'm truly grateful for Cathy, not just for all the work she did in helping me find a home, but also because she cares about her clients and wants the best for them as people.
Cathy was referred to us by a coworker and our relocation company and we are very thankful. She is an exceptional agent. Cathy is very professional, attentive to every detail and very easy and fun to work with. We recently purchased a home in Raleigh after a very long and sometimes complicated relocation. Cathy "stuck with us" and was always present to guide/maneuver through every situation. Cathy's knowledge of the area and market are superb. She is an excellent listener and was able to translate that into finding the perfect community for us. She provides constant support and did a tremendous amount of "leg work" for us when we were out of state. Cathy was very conscious of future resale value during our search. Her advice in this area saved us from making several wrong choices. We viewed dozens of homes during our process and Cathy was so patient. We never felt pressured-quite the contrary-Cathy always made us feel as though we were her number one priority. In the end Cathy's negotiation skills were excellent and she coordinated all our appraisals, inspections and other services. Cathy goes way above and beyond to be an advocate for her buyers. We have bought and sold a number of homes over the years and without a doubt Cathy is the best agent we have every used.
