“I have dealt with Catherine for over five years, and have worked with her on multiple transactions during that period of time. I am always struck by her overall level of professionalism; she displays a rare combination of attention to detail, dependability, promptness, and a dogged determination to serve her clients. You'd think those are prerequisites for the job, but she is -- by far -- the best realtor I've worked with over the past thirty years. Highly recommended!”

— Ray, Larksupr, Marin County

“Catherine was great to work with. We would use her again and would definitely refer her to our friends!”

Nathan & Nanci, Novato, Marin County

“[When] my wife and I [were] thinking about purchasing our first home…[I was] put in touch with Catherine Trahan. Purchasing a home, especially our first one [was] a little intimidating and frightening. But with Catherine’s guidance, help and professionalism, the road to our home went smoothly. She was always there to help, she showed us over thirty homes, and whenever we called her, if she was not in the office, she returned our call immediately and helped us in any way she could. Catherine is someone Nancy and I will never forget, and if we ever need any assistance in the future, we know Catherine will be the one to call. She is a credit to…her profession.”

— Timothy & Nancy, Petaluma, Sonoma County

“Catherine was very attentive to our needs and concerns. She kept us apprised of any developments on the sale of our townhouse. She was constantly on top of it, and we were very pleased with her service.”

— Adelaida, Novato, Marin County

“I am proud to have Catherine on our team. She is very conscientious and genuinely cares for her clients. She really adheres to her fiduciary duties of honesty, integrity, loyalty and utmost care. Her transaction files are extremely complete and in a very timely manner. It is a joy to have her representing us in the field. Not only is she a true professional, but Catherine is a very sweet and fun person too.”

— Melissa Bradley, Owner, Bradley Real Estate

“Catherine is personable, diligent, and truly works for her clients. She worked aggressively for us when we bought our first home and due to her negotiation skills, enabled us to successfully pay asking price for a beautiful home at the height of the California market--something that was unheard of at the time! Once we closed, she remained active, ensuring that the seller followed through on his commitment to repair an item. She's continued to stay in touch and serve as a resource for questions about the area. I highly recommend Catherine to anyone looking to buy a home in Marin or Sonoma Counties.”

— Danielle, Novato, Marin County

“Catherine is the most trustworthy person with whom I have ever worked. She is incredibly conscientous and dedicated. She has a wonderful sense of humor as well as a great knowledge of the real estate business. I have trusted her judgement on referrals and never been disappointed. I would trust her to handle any of my real estate needs and know that I am in the best of possible hands. She is the ultimate professional!”

— Janet, Novato, Marin County

"Catherine worked hard to help me with a home purchase in a very competitive market. Her creative strategy set our offer apart from others. We also hired her to sell our home, but eventually decided to keep it because of market and other conditions. Catherine was very thorough and on top of all the paperwork. We recommend her highly."

— Sara, Rohnert Park, Sonoma County
