Cathy sold our previous home and helped us purchase our new one. She was attentive to detail, always friendly, thoroughly knew the local real estate market, had excellent networking and communication skills and established a selling price that was realistic and achievable.
I was the executrix of my mother’s estate, which included the sale of her home in Albany, New York. Cathy staged the house beautifully. Not only did she know the market, her expertise resulted in multiple bids! Thanks to Cathy, we ended up accepting an offer that was $13,000 over the asking price.
We hired Cathy to help us sell our home after an unfortunate experience with another agent. She was everything we were hoping for: market savvy, honest, and available when we were. She gave expert advice about staging (and provided many props), advertised the open house for best attendance, and sold our home within a week. But she didn’t stop there. She was involved in every step of the process through the closing. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.
Cathy Griffin knew exactly when to market our house, helped to stage the house so it was in perfect showing condition. She priced the house right, and within a day we had multiple offers. Her experience and expertise made hiring Cathy our best choice. I learned a lot from our sale and appreciate all that Cathy and her Team had done. I highly recommend the Cathy Griffin Team.
Cathy is simply outstanding. Her sales team gets the job done. Selling a house takes more than a sign and a price. You need to understand the market dynamics, recognize when you have a buyer in hand, and pursue to close the deal. Cathy is ALWAYS available. She shares the right amount or information throughout the process. She is not afraid to tell you things about your home you may not want to hear. She is a true professional.
Our house had languished on the market with another agent. We had and lost one offer. We had potential customers visit up to three times. We couldn’t figure out why the house wouldn’t sell. Then we hired Cathy. Shortly thereafter we had a deal. Needless to say, our only regret was not using Cathy when we first listed.
Cathy led me through the sales process from staging suggestions at the beginning to the closing. She was knowledgeable about how to present the house, about the local community, about negotiations, and about legal issues in real estate. I recommend her and would definitely go to her if I had another house to sell.
Cathy is the best! Superior knowledge of the Capital District real estate market combined with Cathy’s dedication to her clients makes her the only choice. Cathy managed our sale of one home and purchase of another. She engendered great confidence as she guided us through the entire process, from staging to marketing and finding our new home through negotiations, inspections, and closings. Cathy’s attention to details both large and small (and us!) resulted in a well timed transition between homes with minimal stress. Cathy’s integrity, professionalism, expertise, and great humor throughout our transactions made us happy to refer her to friends who have been just as pleased with her work
Cathy has sold three homes for us (over the last 20 years) and helped us purchase our last home. She is extremely attuned to our needs, quick to respond and very patient when explaining the process. She always negotiates the best price and terms but is also very honest (and on point) when pricing a home to sell.
Buying or selling a home can be very stressful, but Cathy truly takes care of you. She is warm, empathetic, quick to laugh and a very shrewd and wise businesswoman. We have always been very glad to have her on our side.
