Cathy recently helped my wife and I navigate the most complicated real estate transactions we've dealt with over the past 10 years. Her professionalism, expertise, passion and overall charisma makes Cathy the absolute best to work with. She truly puts her clients desires first and does everything in her power to advocate for you and help you navigate all things that come with real estate transactions. I highly recommend considering Cathy for your own real estate transactions - she is without a doubt the best in the business! Huge thanks to Cathy for all of her help :)

There are not enough kind words I could say about Cathy. She is absolutely wonderful and I cannot imagine buying a house without her knowledge, expertise, and kindness!! My husband and I loved every minute of working with Cathy! She goes above and beyond in terms of searching, negotiation, closing, everything! She listens so well to what her clients want and delivers. I would absolutely recommend Cathy to anyone and will be using her exclusively for any future purchases.

Cathy helped us buy our house and three years later helped us sell it. She is extremely organized, responsive, and professional. We received close to 10% over asking price on our home, couldn't have done it without Cathy!

I highly recommend working with Cathy Paulos if you’re looking to buy in the DMV. I was a first-time homebuyer navigating this market solo and Cathy was incredibly knowledgeable about the inventory out there and honest about the options within my budget and specific preferences. Throughout the process, she was readily available during evenings and weekends, very hands-on with my search. Cathy is an excellent negotiator and all-around pro. Her insight helped me put forth a competitive offer on my home that I was comfortable with. If you are looking for someone who knows our region to help you navigate this intense market, Cathy is the one. I recommend her to friends and family without hesitation.

Cathy is by far the best realtor out there! She is very professional, prompt, efficient, hard working, friendly and approachable. She goes above and beyond to achieve perfection. So many repairs were needed to get my mother's house ready for the market and she made it happen quickly, working closely with the contractor. It turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined! She was able to get full asking price and a quick closing. She is very easy to work with, I highly recommend her.

Cathy Paulos is by far, the most efficient, available and answered our concerns. She stayed with us for 2 years until we found the perfect house! We recommend her to anyone without any qualification or hesitation. She’s the best!

Cathy was my second broker when I went hunting for my first home and I wish she had been my first! So, it was a no-brainer to go to her when it came time to put my parents' house on the market. She is a total pro who does her due diligence and got us the max value when we sold my mother's home. Could not have done it without her and her team!!!

This is my second time working with Cathy. She is wonderful! Cathy is very responsive and was more than willing to answer any questions I had. This time around I worked with Cathy to sell and purchase a home. She has great connections. The photographer she hired to take listing photos did an amazing job. The photos were stunning! Cathy knows how to build a competitive offer. The home I recently purchased had 18 offers and they accepted my offer! I do not think I would've gotten this home if it weren't for her and the mortgage lender she recommended! I definitely recommend choosing Cathy as your realtor!

My fiancé and I were referred to Cathy by Coldwell Banker’s Real Estate Advantage Program, and we could not be happier with her service and the result. We were looking to buy our first home from afar (Massachusetts to Maryland). Cathy expertly navigated us through the process, answering all our questions and helping us understand the crazy market we were walking into. When our ideal house just popped on the market with offers due in two days, she sprang into action. She helped organize a visit, coordinated with a family member who was there in our place, and spent the better part of the next day working with us on our offer. Cathy helped ensure our offer was competitive in a multiple-offer situation, and when we were asked for our best and final offer the next day she was with us again with advice and answers to our questions. Miraculously, our offer was accepted—making our time with Cathy relatively short, but with a great result. The best part about working with Cathy is her initiative and responsiveness. When the seller requested we go through a local lender, Cathy worked with them to get us a pre-approval letter for us within hours, even though it was already after the close of business. She kept us in the loop, even during the waiting game while our offer was being considered, and she also was unafraid to reach out for an update or for more information. I’m grateful our house hunt is over, but if I had to do it again I’d for sure want Cathy back on our side.

Cathy was absolutely amazing! Being a military family and having moved from coast to coast, Cathy is far and away the BEST realtor we have ever worked with. Her knowledge of the area, honesty, quick response, excellent communication, and tireless pursuit of absolutely any necessary answers/paperwork, etc. made her a dream to work with. A brilliant realtor who is genuinely the best in her field bar none. If you are looking at the DC metro area (we looked in VA and MD too), Cathy is your best option. Truly.
Laura and Mike - Buyers - Kentlands/Gaithersburg MD
Cathy is an unbelievable realtor. I’m a first time home buyer, but it’s hard to imagine there is anyone better than her. She explained everything through the entire process and gave me and my husband truly concierge-style service. She goes so above and beyond for her clients it’s remarkable. Any time I asked a question she would answer immediately. If I had a request or asked if I had to do something, most of the time she was already on the task for me. She looked out for us from day one, and everything went so smoothly. On top of all that, she is an absolutely lovely person. I’m so incredibly grateful that we found her. It’s no wonder she is a top-rated agent.
Edward - Buyer - Silver Spring, MD
This was my first home purchase, and I'm very fortunate to have Cathy as my real estate agent throughout the entire process. Bottom line is that my very first offer I have ever made on a home was accepted. The house was very competitive as there were 13 bids. The greater DC area market is absurdity crazy, but through her experience, professionalism and advice- 4 weeks later I was able to attain my very first home. Knowing that the sellers wanted to close in a shorter time frame, she recommended that I change lenders, as my lender at the time had a 45-60 day lead time on closing, and my bid would not be as competitive. Based on Cathy's advice on switching lenders, I was able to secure a great mortgage rate that was below 3% and close on time! She is very professional, personable, very attentive, and excellent with communications. We probably exchanged over 100 emails and kept me informed throughout the entire process between the lender, title and escrow, the sellers agent, and all the other items that are part of the house buying process. During the search for a home, she was very honest about homes she had thought were going to be much higher than asking and knew and understood my needs and limits of what I was willing to pay for a home. She was right each time as some of these homes sold for much much higher than I would have been willing bid on. It was a pleasure working with Cathy, and I highly recommend her. Again I was very fortunate to have her represent me as a buyer in the greater DC market. Thank you Cathy!
