"An integral and beloved member of our family."
"As one of the founding 27 Realtors at Sereno, Cathy has been an integral and beloved member of our family and has helped influence and shape the company into what it is today. Cathy has exemplified all that we have strived for at Sereno Group: a consummate professional; respected by her colleagues and industry; and an impeccable reputation of client service, production, and character. We have been tremendously fortunate to have Cathy with us from the very first day in 2006 to now. She has helped us grow from 27 Realtors to over 350 throughout 9 offices. Her influence, example, and character is indelibly part of Sereno's DNA and will continue to be so as we move forward. Cathy is fantastically remarkable and we are grateful to her."
"...she is very good at what she does!"
"I enjoyed working with Cathy - she is very good at what she does! Cathy is knowledgeable about the real estate market and a strong advocate for her clients. She's a savvy negotiator and has a great touch with staging and overall advice for me during the sales process. She helped with our purchase of a new home in Almaden Valley and the sale of my home in the Rose Garden area. She is an excellent read of people, and knew when to push and when to be supportive. I especially appreciated her compassion and understanding for my two sons during of the changes of the sale and the move. Cathy brings both heart and mind share to her clients. I am very happy with the results she helped achieve on both our new home and the sale of my former home and fully recommend Cathy."
"Cathy is the first, and now the only agent we refer to our friends."
"Working with Cathy felt like working with a friend right from the start. We sold and bought our home with Cathy. The fact that our house sold in one weekend for more than asking, and then a smooth closing is a testimonial to her expertise. But beyond the business transaction, it is the honest, helpful and compassionate counseling that convinced us to work with her over others. She really did put our needs first and foremost. In one purchase situation, there was a chance that she wouldn't be able to represent us. It did not matter to her, she assured us that she will be standing right behind us for guidance. She is professional, very responsive and understands the market really well. Even though the purchase is complete, she continues to be our "go-to" person for anything related to our home. Having worked with a few agents, Cathy is the first, and now the only agent we refer to our friends."

"Without hesitation, we would gladly refer friends to Cathy and work with her again."
"We had the pleasure of working with Cathy to both sell and buy a home. Cathy is a true professional with solid real estate expertise, essential in a competitive market. We appreciated her can-do attitude and how she walked us through each step of the process. She listened to our needs and always put us first. She will push hard on behalf of her clients, but also exudes patience and understanding. After closing escrow, Cathy remained in contact with us offering support and local expertise for updates to our new home. Cathy enjoys what she does and it shows. Without hesitation, we would gladly refer friends to Cathy and work with her again. Thank you, Cathy, for helping us find our dream home!"

"she knows how to close that deal; once everyone is under contract, the house is yours!"
"Cathy Hirschman is a real estate agent of the highest standard and caliber. There are not enough words to express our appreciation of her hard work, knowledge, and professionalism. Cathy has assisted us in the purchase and sale of several homes and new construction projects in recent years. We have referred both friends and family to her. Those whom we have referred have always reported their high satisfaction with the quality of their experience with her. Nothing better sums up the real estate experience with Cathy than the often heard exclamation from our friends, "she knows how to close that deal; once everyone is under contract, the house is yours!" We wholeheartedly agree! Whether dealing with routine inspections, paperwork, slow markets, or raging hot markets, there was never a doubt that the success of our home and investment property sales (and purchases) was and is the #1 priority for Cathy."

"Cathy definitetly made our relocation to California a positive experience on all levels."
"Having made several moves over the years, my wife and I can be pretty particular when it comes to realtors and the service they provide. Without a doubt, Cathy Hirschman tops any agent that we've ever dealt with. She not only focused in on what we were looking for in a house/neighborhood - she also tuned in to what we wanted in our lives. What could she do to help my wife acclimate to California? How could she help us feel a part of the community quickly?
Cathy not only found us the perfect home in the perfect location, she also helped us develop a fabulous life here in the South Bay Area. We highly recommend Cathy as she is an expert in the South Bay market, she not only knows the real estate - she knows the schools/neighborhoods/communities-activities/etc. Cathy definitetly made our relocation to California a positive experience on all levels."

Your many years of experience and insightful expertise, was the perfect combination for us, and we would not be in our amazing home today if it wasn't for you. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts, and we will of course recommend you to all of our friends!"
Dan & Stacy Tobin
"... our realtor of choice, but also a true family friend!"
"In the 15 years we've known you, we've closed NINE transactions-ranging from condominiums and townhomes, to single-family residences and even an 8-unit apartment building. We've relied on your knowledge and expertise, as well as that of your broker's, to handle our transactions with professionalism and honesty. Investing our hard-earned money is not something we take lightly - we want someone who is easily accessible, has high integrity, and holds our best interests close at heart. You have fulfilled that role, and as a result, are not only our realtor of choice, but also a true family friend!"
David & Michelle Babbage
"Your experience in explaining the process minimized our personal stress."
"Now that we have bought our new residence and sold our old residence with your guidance, I would like to comment on our experience. It is challenging to successfully accomplish both transactions.
The multitude of laws and regulations needed your tenacity to keep these transactions on schedule Your experience in explaining the process minimized our personal stress. It helps when you work for an organization that has such great support for their agents.
You are to be commended for your communication ability, real estate knowledge, and sense of humor. Lemon and hot water are the best!"
Hal & Linda Arnon
"Her kind and helpful words always put us at ease."
"Cathy has helped us in the buying and selling of our last two homes. She is the best of the best. She is extremely professional, intelligent, and always had the latest information on the real estate market.
When she sold our home in Santa Clara, CA the real estate market was horrible. My husband was being relocated to the Sacramento area. Time was of the essence. It took Cathy everything she has to get that house SOLD. She did it, and faster than anyone had expected. She was always there for us when we got so stressed that we almost said "forget it, it's not worth it." Her kind and helpful words always put us at ease.
My husband and I would highly recommend Cathy for BUYING and/or SELLING of your home."

"I will consider NO other real estate agent in California, period."
"Dealmaker, advisor, and consummate professional - these are the sterling characteristics that drive my real estate agent, Cathy Hirschman, to remarkable results again, again, and again. She's facilitated the successful purchase *and* sales of a number of high-end transactions for me over the last 25 years. I love her focus, energy, and style. But most of all, I love her industry knowledge, sound instincts, and her incredible network of contacts. She's made me a very, very happy client. I will consider NO other real estate agent in California, period. She's tops, trust me."
