She was absolutely amazing
As a first-time homebuyer, I was quite nervous about the entire process. I didn’t have a very good idea of what I was doing or what I was even looking for. So when I was recommended to Cathy I wasn’t sure what to expect. From the very first call to the end of the process she was absolutely amazing. From beginning to end she worked hard to make sure that my experience in buying a home was as it should be, joyful. She was honest and blunt, which I appreciated, and helped me through every step of the process. Thanks to her I’m now a proud homeowner. It’s very clear why she came so highly recommended to me and that’s why I recommend her to anyone else who is looking to buy a house.

Highest Recommendations for Cathy Francis!

Our son attended Cal Poly, SLO and over several years of visiting him we just fell in love with the rural beauty of the central coast. We kept talking about the prospect of relocating here from the bay area but didn’t know where to start. Fortunately for us, we got in touch with Cathy Francis! She helped orient us to the real estate market here and learn what different communities had to offer. She also spent time getting to know what features were important to us and steered us to tour just a few homes that were the best fits. Cathy consistently provided sound guidance throughout the real estate transaction and was always willing to go the extra mile when unexpected issues arose. She also worked tirelessly to keep us in the loop and let us know what we needed to do.

My wife and I have now worked with Cathy Francis on four separate real estate transactions for homes and investment properties in San Luis Obispo County and we look forward to working with her again in the future! She’s knowledgeable, diligent, and fun, and frankly, she’s the best darn real estate professional we have ever worked with! We are delighted to give her our highest recommendations!

My transaction went quickly and smoothly
I consider myself fortunate to have found Cathy Francis. The move to the Central Coast was a major decision for me, and Cathy had all the knowledge, patience, skill, and good sense to guide me through my eventual purchase of a home in Pismo Beach. I first got in touch with Cathy when I was still in the Pacific Northwest. We communicated for a few months and Cathy helped me feel more and more familiar with the market here, even at that distance. Once I was in town, my transaction went quickly and smoothly. Cathy listens intently and she never lost sight of what I told her I was looking for. I can’t emphasize enough how well she uses her knowledge of people and place to suggest the right fit for the client. I know I was in good hands throughout. An exceptional experience.

Excellent communication
We moved from the east coast (goodbye snow, humidity, and hurricanes – hello fire, drought and earthquakes!) and thank goodness we were referred to Cathy Francis as the realtor to go to!  Communication was always excellent and Cathy thoroughly knows the area, the prices, and all the workmen you will need to fix up your new home, as she has lived and renewed homes in the area for many years.  She was patient with our ignorance and extremely knowledgeable about which houses were going to require a lot of work and the time and costs involved.  She went over above and beyond for us and I cannot recommend her highly enough!
