My Passion and Commitment to my clients flow out of the joy I gain when exceeding your expectations. I'm committed to making your home selling or buying experience Easy, Pleasant, and Financially Rewarding! My Complimentary Services for home sellers are tailored to achieve a maximum home sale price for you — ideally a Record Sale Price — with a Smooth, Turn-Key Transaction!

All-star, highly recommended Home Seller Reviews testify I repeatedly exceed my clients' expectations. When my clients write I’m the best or one of the best real estate agents they have worked with, their words echo my deep desire to be the best real estate agent that you will have worked with. It’s my passion to exceed your expectations.

I am also a member of Top Agent Network, the only online community built exclusively for the verified top 10% of real estate agents in the Bay Area. The top 10% agents share exclusive information about properties including Coming Soon/pre-MLS listings so I can build anticipation around your home in a way that grabs the attention of qualified buyers.


Prior to founding my real estate brokerage in 2003, I was a Vice President of Business Development & Marketing in technology.  I earned a M.S. and B.A.S from Stanford University with Honors and attended Castilleja School in Palo Alto. I’ve also served on the board of directors of the Bay Area MLS and the California Association of Realtors. I'm a long-time bay area resident having lived in San Jose (since 2000), Palo Alto, Portola Valley, and San Carlos.

Having spent my career extensively marketing and negotiating on behalf of my clients, and owning multiple properties myself, I know the impact that an excellent real estate agent can make on both the ultimate home sale price as well as providing peace-of-mind.

If you would like to sell your home for top price with cutting-edge, sophisticated marketing and focused negotiations on your behalf, call me at (408) 258-6400 or email me at I'll be there for you!

“Hire Catherine. She is not only wonderful to work with, but brings in the best photographer, best staging advice, best advertising and thus best results. She got us Top Dollar.” — Lynn S.

“Let me tell you, Catherine is worth her weight in gold. She is, hands down, top of the line, highest quality real estate professional I have ever met.” — Mai F.

“Even though most agents tend to emphasize the same set of skills and marketing features, I thought that Catherine was really on top of her game. She was also the only one who believed that my house could and would sell for top dollar. It did above all expectations. It also proved all the other agents wrong.” — Serge R.

“There are a lot of real estate brokers, but very few excellent ones. You are one of the excellent ones.” — Leigh & Mike C.

“Catherine could have stopped with staging and marketing our home and the 16 offers, and we would have been happy with the top offer out of the 16. But instead, she took that extra step and negotiated even more for us to get our sale price 3.3% higher. Catherine cares and seems to really enjoy negotiating for her clients.” — Sheri J.

“The sales price and the time on the market (again, due to Catherine’s strategy) was far and beyond our expectations.” — Julie P.
