I have worked with Cathy on several occasions and she is a true professional. She puts in time to make sure that the house is prepared to be sold and stands out from the rest. I look forward to working with Cathy again and would recommend her to all of my friend and family.
by Chad Hatcher
Cathy has been cheerful and willing throughout this whole process. She is so knowledgeable about all the options available to us. Her recommendations on preparing our home for showing helped it sell in three days! Be sure to get her recommendations when you need work done. She made a stressful process as simple as possible. Thanks you Cathy!!
Working with Cathy has been a real pleasure, she has a great personality, is always trying to help and nothing is ever too much trouble for her. She clearly knows the housing market and is very comfortable with the entire buying/selling process. She is extremely quick to answer any questions and goes far beyond the service provided by other realtors that I have used in the past. I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. You wont go wrong using Cathy.
by Gary Waugh
Working with Cathy was a great experience! She sold our home very quickly and helped us find and purchase our next home. She always kept us informed of everything that was going on, and was prompt to respond to emails and phone calls. She is very friendly and professional which makes the buying/selling process simple and much more enjoyable!
by Ashley Pate
Must say..... Cathy is the BEST ... no doubts in our minds. Absolutely NOOOO doubts!!
She undertook a highly challenging "sales quest" with our over-sized and over-priced home during the time of year that sales are consistently non-enviable. She out-performed her co-workers... fast, smooth, intelligent, savvy, and tireless... with her efforts our sales price was accepted at well above the "going prices" of the then appraisals. Significantly higher... not that those sales prices are ever-present, but the facts are that Cathy worked her "magic" (long, dedicated hours of "elbow grease" and wizened experience in financial adaptations, real estate marketing, and positive high-energy efforts... with a smile!!) That's her definition of sales-magic. Success speaks for itself.
Cogent question: would we hire Cathy again? Well, does a bear...... you know the rest!! When our time comes again to deal in the real estate market, we will trek directly to Cathy Bailey... with no hesitation. She's not just good... like I previously stated, she's the best. A trustworthy rarity in our business world.
This was our 35th full household move, so we've dealt with many, many realtors and similar land agents. So when I aggressively rate Cathy as the "BEST", there's no quotient of "sweet bull" therein. It's a fact...
Sincerely offered... Dick Thompson, former Fighter Pilot, Colonel USAF.
by Dick Thompson
If you want an agent that truly works FOR YOU, Cathy Bailey is the right choice! From start to finish, she is the one you will be dealing with. You will not be handed over to an assistant after the contract is signed. Every detail is a priority with Cathy! Pictures, presentation, advertising, communications, negotiating and closing.......nothing is overlooked and ALL attended to by Cathy!
Cathy is one of the hardest working realtors I have ever met. She brings honesty, integrity, kindness and heart to every listing or sell! My best decision of 2017 was listing and selling my home with Cathy Bailey! A Major Success!
by Tara Wallesen
Cathy is amazing! she worked quickly and so efficiently on our recent purchase of a home in Grapevine. We were not really looking, and happened upon a property we just couldn't pass up. Cathy helped us get a great price, worked though the many contract challenges thrown our way, and helped us close in 10 days! She pays attention to every single detail, ensuring that you will find the property of your dreams!
by Scott White
I've known Cathy for 20+ years; she is an amazing person and Realtor. She is on the ball with sending new listings and flexible with arranging showings. She advocated for us when the home appraisal didn't go our way and successfully negotiated a sales price. I don't think I can compliment her enough!
by Lauren Gilbert
Our experience with Derick was our best yet and we have moved many, many times. There was not much inventory in the area where we wanted to live, and we complicated it by having some requirements that were not that easy to find. We had to move quickly with each new listing and he gave us good advice to get the contract. Derick was very easy to work with and has a calming and reassuring manner along with his wealth of experience and knowledge. He also provided top notch contacts after we closed for updates on the house. We highly recommend him!
