While the law was ultimately not for her, she is eternally grateful for the internship which lead her to her calling in Real Estate.
"I have worked with Cathryn from both the seller and buyer side over the last 2+ years. Over my life I have bought and sold over 30 properties and she is by far the best agent I have ever worked with.”
