Specializing in distinctive Malibu area properties, Cathy offers her clients an impressive track record of nearly $100 million in property representation within just the last six years, as well as the knowledge and insight she has acquired throughout her 15 years as a Malibu resident and 22 years in real estate. As the prestigious coastal area's real estate landscape has evolved, Cathy's expertise has grown and her client list has expanded. She is now the Realtor of choice of discriminating East Coast and international buyers and sellers of family homes, vacation homes and estates.
Valued by her often referred and repeat clients for her compassionate and hands-on attention to their needs, Cathy is also respected by her colleagues, who consistently cite her calm manner, organizational skills and can-do attitude, resulting in efficient, expedient and successful transactions.
That caring, steady demeanor, positive attitude and efficiency might have come from Cathy's training and experience in her initial career as a school teacher. Originally from Indiana, she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Indiana University. She says, just like a good Realtor, a good teacher must be extremely organized, communicate clearly and remain calm in virtually any situation.
Having resided in cities as diverse as New York, Boston, Atlanta and Los Angeles, Cathy knows it is Malibu that has won her heart. She loves the sense of community, camaraderie, warm and friendly people and fantastic schools. Her two children attended Malibu schools and her son has gone on to attend New York University (NYU).
Cathy supports many charitable causes, including the U.S. Ski Team and the homeless children's support organization, School on Wheels. She loves playing tennis and, along with her husband, a screenwriter and film director, she is reviving her interest in golf.
Having earned a special place in her community, a stellar reputation among her growing list of New York clients and the unsurpassed esteem of her colleagues, Cathy is proud of her contributions to Malibu and her coveted position among Sotheby's International Realty's most successful agents.
