Specializing in distinctive Malibu and Southern California area properties, Cathy Bindley offers her clients an impressive track record of more than $150 million in property representation since 2005, as well as the knowledge and insight she has acquired throughout her 20 years as a Malibu resident and more than 25 years in real estate.
As the coveted Southern California coastal region’s real estate landscape has evolved, Cathy’s expertise has grown, and her client list has consistently and continually expanded. She has sold numerous stunning properties throughout Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Venice, Hollywood, Westlake, Calabasas and Agoura, and is the realtor of choice among discriminating East Coast and international buyers and sellers of properties, including family homes, vacation homes, and estates.
Highly valued by her often referred and repeat clients for her compassionate and hands-on attention, Cathy is respected by her colleagues, who consistently cite her calm demeanor, expert organizational skills, enthusiastic can-do attitude, and problem-solving acumen, which result in efficient, expedient, and successful transactions.
Cathy’s caring, steady manner, positive attitude, and efficiency came from her training and experience in her initial career as a teacher. Originally from Indiana, Cathy earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Indiana University. Cathy says, “Just like a good teacher, a good realtor must be extremely organized, communicate clearly, and remain calm in virtually any situation.”
Having resided in leading 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, the warm and friendly people, and fantastic schools in this beautiful Southern California coastal city. A proud mother of two, Cathy’s children both attended Malibu schools. After graduating from Malibu High School, her son attended and graduated from New York University and received his master’s degree from Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management. He now works in private equity. Her daughter also graduated from Malibu High School and is currently a Junior at Loyola Marymount University studying psychology.
Cathy’s kindness and generosity extend far beyond her professional responsibilities and she is active in a variety of charitable causes, including the United States Ski Team. She loves playing tennis and is reviving her golf interest along with her husband, a screenwriter, film director, and partner in Gulfstream Pictures – a Warner Bros. production company focused on making tentpole films.
Having earned a special place in her community, a stellar reputation among her growing list of clients, and the unsurpassed esteem of her colleagues, Cathy is proud of her contributions to Malibu and the greater Southern California region, and of her coveted position among the most successful and sought-after agents with Sotheby’s International Realty.
