She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Cathy made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend her.

What ever I write here will not properly describe how terrific Cathy was as our realtor. She represented us for the purchase of our new home and the sale of our former home.

For buying our new home, she positioned us to the seller in a very personal way. She understood what wording to use to make us attractive buyers (even compared to people with deeper pockets). She 'got us our house'. On top of this, she was more like a concierge service taking us through the entire process never leaving us to fend for ourselves.

For the selling of our home she was able to get us full asking price within three weeks (Thanksgiving included in the three weeks). WITH a back up offer $16,000 over ask.

She was able to justify what our home was worth - while other homes in the neighborhood listed and sold for much lower.

Again Cathy oversaw every piece of our sale. Never an assistant showing up in her place.

We figure we will have our current / new home for 10 years... so Cathy will be our call when it is time for our resale.

I HIGHLY suggest Cathy!

We have known Cathy for several years. In early 2016, we decided we'd look around town to see if there was a home that might make sense to buy and then of course sell our current home. Cathy helped us find the perfect home. The seller presented some challenges but with Cathy's help and guidance, we got through them all. She was very smart and always had the right solution to any problem that arose. She is professional, knowledgeable & extremely positive. Once we closed on the new home, she then listed our home for sale. She was attentive and devoted quite a bit of time & energy to marketing our home with wonderful flyers, mailings, online exposure and open houses. We had many showings. We sold this home a few months ago. There were again challenges that came up during the process and with the buyers. Once again, Cathy stayed calm and solution oriented. And she was extremely available. Whenever a problem came up, she didn't disappear and try to avoid it. She jumped right in to help get it solved. And very prompt at returning our emails and phone calls. If we every need a realtor again, we would 100% use her. We highly recommend her !!!

I am happy to recommend Cathy Schmidig from Turpin Real Estate to all my friends and relatives to be their agent because she is organized ,proactive, and punctual.

If you need an agent that helps and gets things done, then Cathy is the person to talk to.

Her goal-oriented and outgoing personality helped a busy individual like me keeping track of the whole process without feeling overwhelmed. Cathy went above and beyond her way to ensure communication between all the parties was effective and as smooth as possible (no matter how stressed out you may feel in during the transaction ) and the best part is that she always made herself available
via text, emails or phone ( in a timely manner).

I started my search for a realtor more than a year before I was planning to sell as I wanted to find the best professional out there. After interview many qualified candidates, I selected Cathy. It was not even close, she understood my situation, the market and entire process. She kept in contact and sent me market updates regularly until it was time to sell my home.. Selling your home is not an easy but Cathy made it as easy as possible and was very supportive thru out the entire process. I could not be more happy with the results! I was able to sell and close the sell of my house in little over a month!! Moreover, I was very please with the price she negotiated on my home. She did a tremendous job from start to finish. If your looking for the best realtor out there, I recommend Cathy!!

We met Cathy after walking into her office at Turpin Realtors and she immediately started working on finding us a home. From the beginning of the process to the end, Cathy was a consummate professional who was extremely knowledgeable of the market as well as adept in contract negotiations. Throughout the process, Cathy was very motivated and responded quickly to our needs. She went above and beyond to find us our dream home. We are extremely grateful to Cathy and highly recommend her for all your real estate needs.

I'm so lucky to have Cathy as my realtor. She sold our first home, got us into a perfect rental at the most difficult time for my elementary school aged children and dog, and found our home that we happily live in now. She is exceptional in all areas, from knowledge in the selling, renting and buying process. Her quick responsiveness and professionalism throughout our experience was most impressionable. I would recommend Cathy to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or rent.
