Very Helpful

I don't typically like to ask for help, but a situation came up during and nearing the closing process where I needed Cathy's help. She did not hesitate to step in and get the problem solved

Exceeded All Expectations

Simply Excellent. I presented Cathy with what I considered a difficult situation, selling my home while I was mostly away in another city. She didn't didn't flinch. Such a can-do attitude. Cathy is one of the most positive people I have ever met. Professional, knowledgeable, resourceful and productive. I was so impressed with the marketing; it made me want to buy the house and I owned it. But more over, Cathy took care of all the details and thank goodness. The house was closing during the busiest time of my work year. Because of Cathy I was able to attend to my business without missing a beat. I have sold four personal homes in my life and as many as 12 rental properties and without question this was the most pleasurable experience yet. And I owe it all to Cathy. If you want an agent who answers the phone 99% of the time on the first ring from early morning to night, always has a pleasant tone of voice, keeps the client informed and simply gets the job done Cathy Noonan is your agent. She receives my highest recommendation.

Attentive to every detail

Terrific experience with Cathy! Attentive to every detail. Anticipates all the potential issues that arise and is ready with a solution/recommendation right away. Knows the market and was able to find us the right home within 2 weeks of starting our search.

Lovely, Savvy, and Personable

Cathy is very knowledgeable about RVA and surrounding areas. She is lovely, personable, savvy, smart and has lots of interests. She made a stressful life decision manageable during a pandemic!

Smooth Transactions

If anyone is looking for a realtor in the Richmond area, I highly recommend Cathy Noonan.

First of all, Cathy helped us find a home that is absolutely perfect for us. It is literally our dream home and fulfills every need (and want) that we were looking for in a home.
She then gave us excellent advice on how to prepare our townhouse to put it on the market. She even advised us on the minute details that we would have honestly overlooked. She went above and beyond to help Juan and I feel confident in listing our house in the midst of a global pandemic. Within 24 hours, it had a contract!

Today our home officially sold! The entire transaction went extremely smoothly, thanks to Cathy!
