"Cathy is a professional in every sense of the word. She brings to the table her considerable expertise from many years of selling real estate in the Los Cabos marketplace. We have always had total confidence in the information Cathy provides. Her knowledge of the process of purchasing real estate in Mexico as a foreign national is extensive and completely up-to-date.
We recommend Cathy without reservation. Having worked with her to accomplish a very smooth purchase of our wonderful new Mexican casa, we would not consider any other real estate transactions in Mexico without her at the helm."
