I am glad you have decided to check out the members of the Ask Cathy Marketing Group, LLC. I am so very proud of every single one of them!

Over that last 20+ years of selling real estate I have adopted a strict philosophy – the client’s needs come first! There have been so many times that I have sat in a client’s kitchen and after thoroughly discussing their homes market value and their family goals that I tell them “The best thing for your family is to stay put for 1 to 2 more years.” This, of course, does not make any money for me, but it is the right decision for the family. By following the “Client First” philosophy, I have been able to chase my client’s best interests instead of chasing the dollar. Amazingly enough – the dollar just comes when you put your client’s needs first! All of the members of the Ask Cathy Marketing Group subscribe to the same values. That is one of the keys to our success.

Each Buyer’s Agent has successfully completed a specialized intensive training program. This program focuses on gathering your wants and needs; then applying our vast knowledge and resources to get you what you want. Our job is only just beginning once we have found you the home of your dreams. Next comes advising you through the inspections, appraisals, loan process, closing and the minor stuff like changing over utilities. We are with you every step of the way. There is rarely a problem that one of us has not solved previously. This is where experience counts. 

Why is it important to have a team with buyer’s agents if you are listing your home with me? The best part of having a team is that no matter what day it is or what time it is – a buyer who wants to see your home can talk to one of us immediately. We know that the key to getting more showings is being available to the potential buyers. We have many programs in place to facilitate this goal.

Although we often become your friend, we know that our obligation to you is one of honesty and straight shooting. So, there will probably be a time when we tell you something you don’t want to hear, but need to know. Being chosen as your life long Realtor is an honor we want to achieve. We also hope to be the Realtor for your parents, kids, friends and co-workers. 

We have won numerous awards over the years… Regional Keller Williams and Regional Realty Executives Awards, 5 Star Service Awards, the 5 Star Zillow Award, etc.  I don’t list all of them out because I feel more proud of how many families we have served over the years.  In the Kansas City area since 2002 we have helped over 1,000 families move.
