Get to Know Catherine Barden

  •·                                 Catherine Barden, Real Estate Consultant wwww.encinitasproperties.net I was brought up in real estate, working side by side with my mother in a thriving family owned brokerage.  In this environment I developed a strong command of real estate fundamentals early in my career, along with an appreciation of the work ethic and values needed to be successful.  Customer satisfaction has always been, and will always be my #1 priority. With a B.S. degree in Marketing from San Jose State University, I worked for years in marketing and sales.  This experience honed my skills in presenting, negotiating, and consulting, and I realized early on the importance of "owning" all transactions with great attention to detail.  In real estate, almost every transaction has over 100 pages requiring up to 50 signatures and initials, with "every i dotted and every t   crossed. " The slightest mistake could be very costly to you. I live and own property in San Diego's North County and work full time as a Real Estate Consultant.  I am passionate about this business and when we work together I will use my experience, skills, and focus to understand your needs and negotiate on your behalf.  You can expect me to ask a lot of questions and listen actively to understand what's important.  As your Real Estate Consultant, I take ownership for capturing and processing all the details and working with you to close the deal!

It is with great pleasure that I wish to commend your office for the excellent service our family received during our recent real estate transactions.  Even more so, I wish to express my appreciation and gratitude to Catherine Barden for her support and superior professionalism in handling both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.

Catherine is an exceptional realtor; she is intelligent, detail oriented with great communication skills, and understands the real estate market even in the complicated transition period that we are currently passing through.  Catherine was very efficient in handling the paperwork, organizing inspections and explaining to us the step by step the procedures involved in both selling and purchasing a home.  Although this is a challenging time to market a house, Catherine's advice and negotiation skills provided us the opportunity to sell within a short period of time for a fair price and to quickly find a replacement house that has great value for the price.  Catherine was just a delight to work with.

We highly recommend Catherine Barden as she is an excellent realtor for either selling or purchasing a home.  Please feel free to use my name and this letter for reference purposes.

In July 2005 we listed our home with Catherine as our Real Estate Agent.  

 Even though our home had a problem selling due to not having a master bathroom, Catherine holding several open houses and communicating with prospective buyers, worked very hard and was able to get us our asking price.

 We had a pleasant experience working with Catherine and would recommend her services to others.

Catherine started helping us look to buy our second home in one city. After awhile of not finding what we wanted, she kept up the pursuit to our happiness into another city. After several outings and many homes, we had an offer in on a home and would be moving in!

Just as you learn "what you should have looked for and done" when purchasing your first home, you also learn what type of Realtor you should have looked for and had. We could not have done better on our second round! Throughout the process of searching for a home, we were very impressed with Catherine.  She quickly came in tune with our every little desire.  I don't think she ever missed pointing out one thing that was to our liking, even when we were too caught up to notice. Catherine is also great at pointing out "problem" items, whether for it to be of concern now during the transaction or something that may be an issue down the road.

Our whole transaction was extremely smooth, thanks to Catherine. She is extremely knowledgeable, a great Realtor and most importantly a great person! We have been recommending Catherine to others... and always will. 



We got to know Catherine as a very nice lady and a professional realtor. Our relationship began when we, a family of four, showed interest for a house she was selling. We put an offer down and bought the house. Catherine was very efficient handling all the paperwork, organizing inspections and explaining to us step by step the procedures involved to buy the house. We felt very comfortable with Catherine and thus decided to have her to sell our house. It was not the best time to put a house on the market. However Catherine managed to sell within a short period of time and for the price we had in mind. Catherine created an excellent flyer and did a superb staging of the house in her efficient way we like so much.

We can recommend Catherine highly. Let her deal with selling your house when you want to see results fast.

We found dealing with Catherine a real pleasure, she was very professional and yet at the same time like a neighbor, very warm and friendly. She acted with a sense of urgency during the entire process of the sale. I have found that the real test of your agent comes during the closing process, things can get difficult, but she handled everything great, she had the expertise to handle the most trying of circumstances with grace.

We were moving out of state and left before the final closing of the sale, she had us covered. She made sure everything could be taken care of for the new owner. During this time she really took care of our needs like they were her own.

My wife and I have no hesitation what so ever in giving Catherine our highest recommendation.
