Cathleen O'Hannigan - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

The realtor we have here in the Midwest is nothing compared to Cathleen.

She so spoiled us for any other realtor. Cathleen was always looking for any edge she could find to sell our house. We knew there was nothing more that could be done. Our disappointment with the current realtor is her marketing and staying on top of what she says she will do. Cathleen would have NEVER told us that the ad for our open house didn't make the paper because, all though she got it to the secretary by the deadline, the secretary "loaded" the adds early so, so sorry, it didn't make the paper. THAT WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED WITH CATHLEEN!!! It would have been there early. Cathleen O’Hannigan is the best realtor I ever worked with, and I have worked with between 50 and 75 realtors when selling employee houses for my company, in addition to the 7 houses I have bought and sold for myself. Her assistance in finding quality, reasonably priced contractors to do repairs to our house was absolutely priceless. Cathleen is the first realtor that I feel provided full service for the commission we paid her. She earned every penny. I would never consider for sale by owner if I had a realtor with her skills, service and timely responses.

Cathleen goes beyond to make sure your home is ready to sell and also has extensive connections through social media in addition to the already known multiple listing.

It was such a pleasure to have her list my home. Very knowledgeable and helpful.

Cathleen is professional, smart, savvy, and extremely knowledgeable about the market.

She not only found us our current home, but also sold our old one in record time! THANK YOU Cathleen for helping us navigate our way throught the ups and downs of both buyind and selling a home!!!!

Gail Harris, Apex

Cathleen O’Hannigan has just completed a successful sale of my home.

The home was sold in four (4) days on the market. You may say “what’s the big deal, many homes are sold in that time, and perhaps even less time. But not the way she did it. I had started out with a plan to sell my home myself. I had been successful selling my last two, so I felt I was all set to do it again. So let me tell you the rest of the story and how good Cathleen is! While dialoging with Cathleen about how she would sell my home, I explained my rationale to FBSO, and she patiently listened. The more we talked it became obvious to me that she had an excellent program for the approach to sell our home. Prior to speaking with her, I had listened to several other agent’s proposals, and felt that their approach seemed to lack a complete definition for me. Theirs was OK but they all seemed to be a cookie cutter approach. I had an unsolicited offer which she advised was way too low. Turns out she was right. Her efforts resulted in a net gain of $25,000 more. Her marketing outlined a 20+ steps of what she would do to market my home. And “dammed” if she did that once I agreed to use her as our agent. She listed the home on a Thursday, Open House on a Saturday following, and we had an offer Sunday. Four days. Closed month and one half later. Boom!!!! I am delighted with her expertise. She is a very good listener. She really listens to you. She is personable, assertive in her thoughts and actions, she has an extreme knowledge of the marketplace & excellent knowledge of the process. She assesses markets effectively, explains rationale of communication clearly, is very dependable, especially timely in her actions, is ethical in dealing with her profession, understands thought process quickly and communications are timely. She also uses an outstanding photographer/videographer. Philip A. Morrissette

Cathleen has excellent "buyers eyes" and knew exactly what would be key in selling my home.

She used her unique strategies to have a record number of buyers at an Open House the first day on the market. She absolutely amazed me with the incredible offers over asking in a market where full price was rare. In purchasing my new home, her superior negotiating skills saved me $30,000 in that I never would have been able to get the builder to give. I purchased 4 other homes in other parts of the country and Cathleen is by far the most effective real estate agent I have ever worked with.

Javier and Meralis Bile, Cary

I highly recommend Cathleen.

Cathleen is professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and works her tail off! My family and I moved from out-of-state and it was refreshing and helpful to have the assistance of someone that knew the area so well and guided us through the legal process of buying a home. We were in great hands! I really feel as thought she took the time to get to know us and find out what we were looking for and we found a dream home in a neighborhood my whole family loves

Tim Receveur, Apex

Cathleen's work on the sale of our home was tremendous.

Her relationships with competent and affordable service people had great value to us. Cathleen generated traffic in terms of showings for our home as well as ultimately finding buyers as we had two strong offers in a relatively short period of time. She is a terrific communicator and always accessible. We would highly recommend Cathleen to anyone looking to sell their home. We also consider ourselves very fortunate to have been able to work with Cathleen to purchase our new home. We were looking in a very desirable neighborhood and she guided us well through a multiple offer situation and managed to negotiate a purchase price for $10,000 less than another offer! Cathleen represented us extremely well. Anyone working with Cathleen is in good hands!

Cathleen recently sold several properties for me, and hands down, she’s the finest realtor I've ever had the privilege to work with.

She has an outstanding familiarity with the local area, she’s incredibly prompt in communication, she consistently prioritizes my interests, she is exceptional across various price points, she is unwaveringly dependable in delivering on promises, she possesses a profound grasp of real estate documentation, and displays proactive intelligence.

We have worked with many realtors through many moves and by far Cathleen met our needs and supported our every call without hesitation.

She was always available, educated us about our options, and worked diligently with challenging obstacles until they were resolved. I think Cathleen will listen, research, and coordinate your real estate transaction with true professionalism and she is dedicated to getting the results you hope for in your real estate transaction!

Robert Lin, Apex

We own property in 4 states and have a number of rental units.

Cathleen is the best. She is amazing. You cannot go wrong with her as your agent, either to buy or sell. She has gone WAY beyond the call of duty for us on numerous occasions, helping us with moving in appliances, finding carpenters, plumbers, etc. and you name it, she has been nothing less than amazing. She will definitely have our listing when we are ready to sell our property in Raleigh!!

Valerie and Ron Shreibeis, Raleigh

I would and will absolutely recommend Cathleen to anyone who asks.

She helped me prepare my home prior to listing, had a stager come in, and upon occasion assisted me personally. My home went into MLS on a Friday. Cathleen held an open house on Saturday and my home had 3 offers within 4 hours-2 over asking. This was mostly due to the extensive pre-marketing she does to target the right buyers before the home hits the market. I just closed today. I was exuberant with her skills all the way around.

BJ Gustinis, Cary

Cathleen was wonderful to work with.

I called her 6 months prior to selling our home to get her thoughts about what needed to be done before we listed and she gave us great feedback. She had a buyer already wanting our property before we listed because she had been to our home and knew what we had to offer. It was great to have the first people who looked at our home buy it! Cathleen answered our questions in a timely manner and walked us through the whole selling process. We develolped a great relationship and she was fun to work with. We highly recommend working with Cathleen!

Debbie Ross

Cathleen has been a great help while selling our house.

She is very experienced in her job and she will guide you through each step of the process. Even when houses around our neighborhood had been on the market (with other Realtors) for quite some while, with the tips and advice of Cathleen, we staged our house, listed it and were under contract for full asking price within 3 days. Cathleen will not stop until the job is done. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone. Cathleen sold our home and represented us in the purchase of our new home.

Yogi and Gill, Cary Oxxford Hunt

Cathleen coordinated the sale and fought hard to get us a great deal while we were in California.

She was great, maintained contact and guided us through the whole process. She is an agent who will get it done and work hard for her client. We are very happy in our new home.
