Thoroughly knowledgeable
We recently moved into a new home in SLO and Cathy served as our Realtor.  Since we were located out of the area we relied on her to follow up on many items before and after the closing.  She is thoroughly knowledgeable in all aspects of a real estate transaction and is ALWAYS available when needed.  She responds promptly and always represented our interests.  She went beyond our expectations throughout the entire process.  When we got to our new home she had snacks waiting and had even changed the furnace filter!  Cathy was a pleasure to work with!  Highly recommended.

A true professional
My husband and I needed an organized, knowledgeable realtor to help us find great investment properties and Cathy Francis filled the bill.  She found three properties for us to purchase as part of our 1031 exchange and they have now all closed escrow and are ours.  Cathy’s expertise and assistance in all aspects of our purchases (finding suitable properties, negotiating the purchases, making sure the inspections were thorough and timely, and watching our timeline closely) made working with Cathy a pleasure.  She is a true professional with whom we would work again when we are in the market.

We couldn’t have chosen a better real estate agent
Cal Poly parent here! First off I would like to say, Cathy is an amazing hardworking real estate agent. As our kids moved on we had a condo to sell and we are so glad to have found Cathy! Selling this condo proved to be a challenge due to Covid and Cal Poly moving to online instruction. Cathy was with us from the get-go and provided us with excellent advice and customer service for 11 long months. We had multiple sales fall apart due to financing issues from buyers and still Cathy remained positive and provided guidance at every turn. She went above and beyond, keeping an eye on the condo, hiring appropriate repair persons and coordinated all appointments. She provided weekly market updates and checked in with us regularly. She even volunteered to show the condo for out-of-the-area real estate agents. We couldn’t have chosen a better real estate agent. Cathy truly provided the best service we could have asked for!

Thank you, Cathy!
Selling a home is one of the most stressful undertakings there are, stress that’s compounded when one has two real estate transactions in process simultaneously. This was the case for us and without Cathy‘s expertise, we likely wouldn’t have made it through escrow to closing. Cathy‘s experience and knowledge in navigating the very hot San Luis Obispo real estate market began with her sitting down with us at the outset and going through the numbers. This allowed us to set the best price for the market, garner several viewings by prospective buyers, and ultimately find the one buyer that was the perfect fit for our house. Kathy’s no-nonsense, straightforward, and honest approach to selling our home directly resulted in a timely sale at a price point above our expectations. We highly recommend Cathy to everyone wanting to get down to business and sell their home. I can’t think of anyone better to do so! Thank you, Cathy!

Very resourceful
Cathy is wonderful to work with.  She is very resourceful and finds clever solutions to sometimes tricky problems.  She is smart and knows what questions to ask to get the right results.  She communicates well and often and doesn’t leave you hanging.  She is a wonderful asset to any transaction.  Most of all – she is fun!
