"I would highly recommend Cathy for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She was very professional and very flexible with our schedules, extremely in tune with the market and her advice was spot on! Cathy makes the process of buying and selling a home very easy and the least stressful it can be. She has many years experience and many contacts in the industry. With many years experience in the industry she is able to point things out that you may not see or think of. She is also very personable and treats you as friends instead of just a client. Always available and quick to respond to your calls/texts/emails etc. If you are looking to buy or sell a home she is the one for the job!"
My wife and I met Cathy when we went to look at a Ranch Home in October 2017. We were immediately impressed with Cathy’s knowledge of the market and the area and decided then to work with her on both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of a new one. She helped us find a great new home and gave us good advice so that we were able to negotiate the price we wanted to pay in a tight market. When it came time to sell our home, we relied on her experience to prepare our home for sale, and then set an appropriate asking price. The photography used in the listing was stunning and the write up accurate and engaging. We had a signed contract the day the Home was listed while other homes in the area were left unsold weeks later. Her continued help all the way through closing was invaluable and we highly recommend Cathy to sellers and buyers alike.
"In the several times we've bought and sold properties in the past, I don't recall a realtor as knowledgeable and professional as Cathy is. I got a referral to her from a neighbor and all he said was true about Cathy. She stays on top of things, and really understands the market and how to do the job quickly and professionally. She sold our home in only 63 days. She also patiently helped us do a new home search as well, and Cathy never grew impatient with us - as we are picky buyers. One very nice thing about Cathy also is that she is a very kind person to deal with as well. It felt as though we were dealing with a person who really cared about us finding the right home, as well as selling our previous home at a very good price. We will absolutely use Cathy again!"
"Cathy was great to work with. After my father passed away last year, I was left to sell his house while living 2 states away. Cathy made the process as seamless as if I had been on the ground locally. She contacted me often to discuss and explain the process, and to go over offers as they were received, weighing the pros and cons of each. Her advice was always in my best interest and backed with detailed explanations of of all the factors involved (e.g., FHA loans vs. traditional loans, price reduction vs. closing cost credit, &c.). Having just lost my father, it was a great comfort to have someone I could trust to mind the details while still keeping me informed and involved. Cathy also went above and beyond what I'd expect from an agent, taking care of a number of issues that I couldn't deal with because I was in another state. I highly recommend her services."
"Cathy is excellent to work with on all fronts. She is there to support you from start to finish and always goes the extra mile. She is knowlegable and professional. She wants to ensure you find the best home for your needs. She is honest and will even highlight the cons/issues of a house that you as a buyer might not think of. I highly recommend her."
"Cathy understands her market and showcases the community assets to buyers. She is graceful under pressure and in the most stressful of situations she is calm and professional. Her follow up is excellent and I do feel she genuinely cares about her clients and getting the job done. Her years of experience in the real estate arena have served her well. I highly recommend her to represent anyone in the sale of their home or as a buyers agent as well. She sold our home in a timely manner and if needed I will use her services again."
"We bought our new home with the help of Cathy. She was great throughout the process from the initial search until the day of closing. Cathy is a professional realtor who knows the market and who can appraise different properties. We never felt pressured. Cathy is always honest and available. She responds to email, text or direct phone calls with remarkable speed. She was able to advise us on choosing a home inspector and a real estate attorney. She is very thorough. For example she spent a whole hour with us during the final walk-through. She was present for the 2-3 hours the inspection took. She was able to assure a smooth closing and communicated frequently with the attorneys and the seller’s agent.
I highly recommend Cathy with no reservations."
"We bought our first home with Cathy, and she was incredible. Very accommodating to our schedule, and extremely responsive. Great knowledge of the market and the entire buying process, which was especially useful for us as first-time buyers. Absolutely no pressure and completely classy, we could tell she wasn't in it for the sale. She wanted to help us to find the right fit, and that's exactly what she did. 10/10"
"We want to express our gratitude to Cathy Litoborski. She is truly a personal and outstanding real estate agent. We had a one of a kind house in Lemont to sell. We knew that only a small amount of people would have a need for this type of house that we had. It was on 2 1/2 acres with 5 bedrooms in the house that had 2 bedrooms upstairs and 3 bedrooms down stairs, with 2 large offices in the same building. The outbuilding was a 2 story woodworking shop. The house was a country style raised ranch with the offices in a self contained addition located next to an expressway. We actually thought that we would never get anywhere near the price we were asking. Other real estate agents looked and would not even try to sell it. We knew that Cathy was one of the best agents in Lemont. She came in looked at the house and offered a few suggestions of what we should change which we did. Cathy never got discouraged in trying to sell our house even when we did. Every single week she would have showings at the house. She did not give up until she found the right buyer that fell in love with our unique house. She also walked us through the closing so everything went smoothly. We feel that we were very lucky to have her as our real estate agent and would recommend her to anyone that wants a real estate agent that will not give up. Cathy is no longer just our real estate agent she is a true friend that will not let you down."
"Cathy is amazing - through the years she has helped my husband and me with the purchase of 2 homes and sale of one. On top of being excellent at her job she is so patient, kind and thoughtful. I reccomend her to everyone I know and feel very blessed that we found such an awesome and skilled realtor."
"Cathy helped my fiancé and I sell his townhome and buy our first home together. She was wonderful to work with and so knowledgeable about the home buying and selling process. Cathy was extremely helpful in answering all our questions and she was very dedicated when it came to selling our townhome for a great price and finding the perfect new home for us. Cathy truly had our best interests and heart and I would highly recommend her."
"I highly recommend Cathy Litoborski to anyone needing the services of a Realtor. Let me explain why.
Cathy has many qualities the contribute to her being an effective agent. She is very intelligent, articulate, honest, and sincere. She is also a really careful listener.
Specifically, Cathy gave me great advice on how to stage my house for sale and price it correctly. Cathy has an unbelievable memory and understanding of the housing market in the Lemont area. She created a great marketing plan that encompassed many internet websites and various print media. My contract with her allowed me to cancel at anytime if I was dissatisfied for any reason. This showed that she had great confidence in providing the services I needed to sell my home.
Cathy had a professional photographer with much experience in real estate take the photos for the website after the house was staged. He did an excellent job. This was done at her expense as was all advertising. When the house was about to be sold Cathy volunteered to provide a one year $450 insurance policy that the buyers had requested, to help close the deal.
All through the process Cathy was easy to reach by phone or email. I was always amazed at how often I was able to reach her immediately on her cell phone, and when I couldn't at how quickly she returned my calls, it was usually in a few minutes. Emails were usually responded to within an hour. It didn't matter if it was day, evening, or weekend.
I had a huge number of questions and Cathy always responded quickly and with great insight and knowledge. Cathy's understanding of advertising, marketing, and financing is outstanding. There was never a question for which she did not have a thoughtful and meaningful answer. In retrospect, everything she told me turned out to be correct. When a potential buyer viewed the house Cathy always contacted their agent and provided me with a quick summary about their thoughts on my house.
When we got into negotiating with the buyer Cathy was very helpful and expedited reaching a final price within two days.
We put the house up for sale in early February of 2011 and closed the sale on April 22, 2011. In the market at that time this is amazing. Cathy delivered on everything she had promised and I very highly recommend her."
"Cathy was amazing to work with. As first time buyers, we were reluctant to jump into home ownership because of an unfortunate experience with a short sale last year. It was wonderful to work wi th Cathy because she was very good at explaining the process and being flexible and responsive. She was very in tuned to our wants and needs in a house, and dedicated to helping us find our home! We saw a lot of properties, and she was always very patient and knowledgeable. We would recommend Cathy to anyone who was interested in buying or selling real estate! Thanks!"
"Cathy is the best agent I have ever worked with. She helped me sell my condo even though the market was a little tough! Cathy gave me feedback after every showing and gave me ideas to help it s how even better. She then helped my boyfriend and I find our perfect house. She took us out to all of the different areas that we picked and was always available and flexible. She answered all of our questions and made the process so simple. She truly loves what she does and loves helping people. If you want to have a good experience when buying or selling your home give Cathy a call."
"To Whom It May Concern: We chose to work with Cathy Litoborski in the efforts of selling our condominium and purchasing our new home after learning about her through a family friend. It was th e best decision we made, as we never would have sold our home without all of Cathy’s help! Cathy was incredibly professional, polite, and patient in every aspect of the process. She was punctual and prepared for every appointment. Cathy was always available when we needed to contact her via phone or email. We truly appreciated her confidence and dedication in selling our condo. Cathy assisted us through multiple offers and contracts to sell our home. Selling our home was an emotional roller coaster of ups and downs, and Cathy was the voice of reason and calm when everything seemed to be spinning. Cathy and her colleagues are wonderful people to have working on your side. We appreciated Cathy’s patience and resolve to make sure our home would sell, especially since we had already found the new home we wanted to purchase. Cathy’s communication between all parties on the selling and purchasing sides was a crucial part of this success story. Cathy helped us through the most difficult summer of our lives and we couldn’t be happier with the end result! We are all moved in to our new home and are in love with everything about it. We would recommend Cathy Litoborski with pleasure. You couldn’t choose a better professional to assist you in selling or purchasing a home."
"Cathy, went above and beyond from the first point of contact, until even after the closing. Cathy is respectful of individuals needs, and very grateful! I look forward to working with her again in the near future."
"Cathy was an excellent realtor to work with. She was always prompt at responding to emails/texts/calls, eager to find the "perfect" home for us and always willing to go out of her way to help us. She truly made our first home buying experience as stress free and smooth as possible. We appreciate her professionalism and willingness to listen to our needs when purchasing a home. Thank you so much!"
"I recommend Cathy Litoborski. Cathy sold my townhouse very quickly, Cathy's Professionalism was amazing, she kept me informed on everyting that was going on. Cathy made the experience very e asy for me. Then her patients in showing me homes to buy, I really appreciated because we looked at many homes. I will recommend Cathy to anyone because she made the experience enjoyable and easy. Cathy is very good at what she does."
Writing reference letters is usually a tough task, however, this reference letter writes itself and I am happy and privileged to put my words to it.
As I told you when we first met, I was extremely anxious to sell my home and move to
Louisville, Kentucky to be with my son and daughter-in-law who had moved there in
January. Knowing how tight the real estate market was, and still is, I interviewed a few
other agents before coming to your door. Your knowledge, friendliness, poise and
professionalism made my decision a no brainer.
Cathy, you did several things that made you number one by a significant margin:
• Namely, your internal analysis was spot on.
• You spent whatever time was needed to answer my questions and also informed
me everything that I needed to know about buying and selling a home. This
education process was very much required as I had lived in my house for 40
• The sales packet you produced was first class as were the "flyers" that were used
to market my property.
• Your showings for other brokers and the public were all well attended.
• The feedback from these showings was all positive primarily due to all of your
help in "staging" my home.
All of these efforts resulted in a quick sale; two months with two offers.
I am now happily living in Louisville and will always be thankful to you for making it
Best of luck and warmest regards,"
