Cathy is a true professional and is very knowledgeable about what she does. If for some reason she doesn't have an immediate answer to your question, she will find someone who does and get back to you in a timely manner. My husband and I hired Cathy to sell our Chicago condo (Wicker Park) during one of the toughest housing market downturns in history - the spring/summer of 2010. She was honest with us from the start - that it would be difficult to sell in such a tough market especially with an overabundance of condos in our area - but she listened to our needs when it came to what we would like to sell the place for, what our limits were, etc. and came up with a great solution that met our goals. She also was very flexible with our crazy work schedules and having a new baby in the house (5 months). And only a short 4 months after listing our condo with her - we were ecstatic to have 2 offers on our condo and we were able to sell our condo for more than I secretly thought we would! Thank you so much Cathy for your hard work & dedication! Melissa and Patrick Sisco

Catherine Mead was exceptional through out our entire home search and then eventually the purchase process of our home. My wife and I are first time home owners so it helped having Cathy who was extremely helpful throughout the buying process. We had many questions and Cathy always knew the answer. She was also extremely prompt whenever we had a question or concern. She was very knowledgeable about the areas we were searching and sent over some great information about the town we chose to purchase in. I would recommend Cathy to anyone searching for a house because of how helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and prompt she is.

Cathy, worked patiently with us for 2 years to find a home, due to a tricky pregnancy and health complications we had a lot of pauses. She was non-judgemental of our desires in a home and was great when we could not find anything for awhile.Overall her patient, approachability and her ability to be reached were impeccable and the top reasons why we continued with her for 2 years and I would recommend her to anyone in the future.

I just wanted to pass on working with Cathy Mead has been such a wonderful experience. Being a corporate move was a bit more challenging and Cathy went above and beyond the expectations to make sure everything was done perfectly. She is very knowledgeable in her field and had several great recommendations to make the process even smoother. We appreciated all her hard work and would definitely use her again and recommend her to all our friends and family!
