I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Catherine because she earned it! I contacted her after receiving her flyer and talking to her on the phone. I was immediately impressed with her knowledge of the Palm Springs market, working with Indian leased land and my complex specifically. It was over 2 years later when I was ready to list my condo, but she stayed in touch, checking in on some complications that had to be worked out before selling. She knew it would be a challenging listing, but she took it on and went above and beyond in every possible way, playing the roles of mediator, negotiator and even messenger to make it happen. Catherine's knowledge, professionalism, understanding and hard work make her a pleasure to work with in what can be a stressful time. Ultimately, she found the perfect buyer and ensured that escrow went smoothly, leading to a very happy ending. I will always be grateful to her and I highly recommend her!
Gary and Sharla McCullough
We are very grateful for Catherine. She has been a huge help in buying and selling several properties for us in a short period of time. It started with my father-in-law’s probate property which sold quickly. She also found us a beautiful new home in Indio. We were expected to be on a waitlist for a while. However, Catherine’s persistence got us locked in on a property much sooner than expected after a cancellation occurred from a previous buyer. Finally, she sold our primary residence at a really great price, much higher than we were expecting it to sell! Catherine is an amazing Realtor. She knew exactly what to do to make each individual house stand out so they would sell quicker. The photography for each house was outstanding. It was a pleasure working with her!

Catherine is a wonderful and rare find and I have worked with many Realtors. I was referred to Catherine, as a buyer, during a very difficult move and she was able to pick up immediately and educate me quickly with compatible neighborhoods, types of properties and ultimately quickly finding a house which I closed on. Her extensive knowledge of the Valley neighborhoods, market and her tenacity to be on top of applicable options of the inventory is amazing. Catherine goes the extra mile to get a deal closed. She is gracious and worked with my needs and tastes.

I was a bit apprehensive about selling my home during a pandemic. Remembering how amazing Catherine was when I bought my house five years ago, I had confidence she would know how best to proceed. At the beginning of December, I moved nine hours away…before my house went on the market. I was able to do so knowing I was in good hands. Catherine was there every step of the way to make sure my house was safe and ready for potential buyers. We were in escrow soon after listing. Catherine went above and beyond throughout escrow. There were some snags along the way on the buyers’ end, but Catherine kept pushing every step of the way. I sincerely can’t imagine any other realtor stepping up and accomplishing so much of what Catherine was able to do and during a pandemic no less! If you are looking for a realtor, look no further than Catherine Marcy.
Ron Kington
Recently I received unbelievable professional service from Catherine Marcy, a Realtor for HomeSmart Professionals! I approached her related to listing my Palm Springs condo. Immediately she provided me with comparisons and she assisted me in ascertaining a marketable listing price. Which by the way sold quickly! Immediately after listing my condo she provided an immaculate virtual tour and cared for all of the restrictions related to the pandemic. Immediately she began showing the condo to perspective buyers. I have bought and sold over 20 homes, mostly rentals, but I have never received more professional service. Unlike other realtors in the past, she continued to keep me posted on the developments every several of days!! I would highly recommend this Professional Realtor to list or sell your property!!
Cliff and Diane D
Catherine is knowledgeable about the Palm Springs CA and surrounding area market. Her assistance in selling our Palm Springs condo for top dollar was invaluable! We had offers within days of listings and completed the transaction in just 65 days from start to finish. She helped us purchase this unit many years ago also. If you’re looking to buy or sell property in Palm Springs or the surrounding Desert area, Catherine Marcy would be your "best choice" for a real estate professional !
Steve and Carolyn W
We think Catherine is the most professional real estate agent we have ever worked with by far. Catherine made our transaction very easy even though there were difficulties in the negotiation; she was patient with us as we made decisions and she gave us very clear guidance when we had questions. Catherine stood firm for us in our negotiations and she did her very best to keep our transaction moving forward. Catherine is an excellent real estate agent and we will "highly recommend her."
Dale N
I sold my home in La Quinta, CA using Catherine Marcy, Realtor with HomeSmart Professionals. Catherine understood very well the unique features of my home regarding financing and how to qualify the buyers properly. She was also very helpful to other realtors in order to help them understand the process. Since I was out of state shortly after listing my home, she kept me informed weekly as to the number of showings and probable qualified buyers. Also, her published marketing of my home was consistent and amended monthly to create additional new buyer interest. I highly recommend Catherine and her real estate knowledge and skills!
Luis V
I am greatly appreciative of Catherine and her expertise as a Real Estate Agent. She was very patient and helpful in helping us decide where we were going to buy our new home. It was with all of her knowledge and experience that we were able to finally reach a conclusion and close on our beautiful first home. Our experience as first time home buyers was very easy knowing that we had a great agent that was working very hard to help us buy our new home. It was a really good experience working with Catherine and the rest of the team. We are very grateful for her help. THE BEST!!!!

Catherine Marcy is an extremely hands on Realtor. She "covers all the bases all the time". I'm an elderly widow with several health limitations and Catherine allowed for my condition and performed many chores and activities which would have normally been my duties in preparation to sell my home. She is very honest and truthful and I would highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs.
G Stobaugh
To state that Catherine did an outstanding job would be such an understatement to her abilities and talent. I have both purchased and sold a property through Catherine in the past and had no reservations in being an absentee buyer in my recent purchase of the home in Cathedral City. Due to the quick market of really fast sales in the area I relied on Catherine to find a home that met the qualifications of size, amenities, location and price range. Catherine dove into the request and found an ideal home in a preferred location priced within our budget and worked with me in every aspect of the negotiation of price, repairs and closing credits to cover some issues. We are ecstatic with the home and credit Catherine Marcy with the total success of exercising the art of the deal.
Carol A.
Catherine was the agent we enlisted to sell my mother's home in La Quinta. She was very professional and helpful in getting the home sold in a timely fashion. Her follow up and completion of the transaction was efficient and quick.
C Joiner
After spending months looking for a new home I was given a referral and contacted Catherine. She was excellent, thorough, understood the market and the unique challenges I had being a veteran and using VA financing. You're in good hands with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a Realtor.
K Keele
Catherine’s expertise in real estate helped our family find our dream home in the Palm Springs Area. She was always prompt in responding to our e-mails and phone calls. She kept us informed and walked us through the entire home buying process. Catherine was a joy to work with and we highly recommend her without any reservations.
Marlene M McNulty
I had complete confidence in the knowledge and expertise of Catherine Marcy during the process of selling my home. She advised me of some changes I would need to make. Her assistance amazed me, resulting in a prompt sale at the best possible price. I am truly grateful for her outstanding service.
Thank you for all your hard work during the sale of my home. You are, indeed, very successful at getting the job done. I appreciated that you understood the market in my neighborhood and were easy to contact through email and text messages. Everything went very smooth and I am so glad the business of selling my home is complete. Continued success to you and your business.
John S.
Catherine was always on time and responsive. She was particularly helpful in making sure the purchase progressed even through some difficulties with financing and local municipal approval. Catherine is a very pleasant lady, and she even went the extra step to help me with post-purchase needs. She is a winner.
Hank & Debbie
Catherine was an absolute joy to work with. She was very professional, responsive, and detail-oriented regarding how to present our condo in the desert for sale. Her design expertise, marketing strategy, and diligent efforts in following up with showings was excellent. I recommend Catherine if you want a quick sale and someone who will keep you apprised of the entire sales process. Catherine was absolutely "Awesome".
Frank & Ann
We have dealt with Catherine on two home sales and the purchase of our present home. We were impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market. She always went that extra mile for us and advertised our properties perfectly. Her advise through the process was of great value. We have gone through this with other real estate persons but none have come close to the service provided by Catherine. We highly recommend her.
C & J Saenz
Catherine is wonderful, she was very knowledgeable on what would and wouldn´t work for us. For me as a first time buyer, Catherine made everything easy and stress free. She was on the ball and kept things moving forward. She was able to get the stubborn seller to fix a few things before closing, and she was also in constant communication with not only me and my wife but our lender as well, ensuring everything would process smoothly. She is a very hard working person and will take great care of you. I would use Catherine again and would recommend Catherine to anyone looking for a great agent.
Patrick Alcala
My wife and I were looking to buy a home using a VA loan. Catherine was recommended to us. She was extremely knowledgeable with the VA loan process and requirements that the VA has for housing. My experience with Catherine was wonderful. She kept us apprised of what was going on in the process of buying a home and any changes that needed to be made. Catherine was always available for questions and interfaced well with the listing agent and the loan company. Our initial search for a home was quite simple. Based on my criteria, Catherine would email prospective homes and ones I was interested in and we would go look at them. Catherine made the experience easy and enjoyable. Catherine is a true professional, personable, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Catherine Marcy.
Bob Wayman
From the moment we met, I knew that Catherine was the right person to sell my home, and she also was extremely helpful in my buying another home in La Quinta, CA. Catherine has a wonderful personality, and when she showed me the home in La Quinta that she had listed, I knew right then that I had to buy that home. So then she came to my former home and properly told me what I had to do to sell it. She properly set the selling price, as I had not done major improvements prior to the sale. After it was listed, the first offer came in 7 days. When that offer was withdrawn, she immediately called another prospective buyer, and that person made an offer after only a two hour visit in my home. She has so many skills in selling and buying a home, I would recommend her to anyone I meet. Catherine did a wonderful job, and I am very happy in my new home.

I met Catherine Marcy of Home Smart Professionals through my mortgage lender, Patrick Richardson of Veterans United Home Loans. Catherine was very helpful and professional in assisting me in my search for a suitable home. She made herself available not only to show me homes that she had listed, but also homes that I may have found while driving through the neighborhoods or came across on the Internet. She was also very knowledgeable of the Veterans Administration requirements of what was required for their approval, which saved us a lot of time looking at homes that wouldn't pass muster. When we finally did find a home that I was interested in, she negotiated the price lower than the asking price even after the seller had done a recent price reduction. That was the easy part, after finding the home, negotiating the price, then there were the inspections, appraisals and final walk-through. Also there were some glitch with the paperwork from the lender and it was slowing down the acquisition of the property, once I informed Catherine of the problem, she put her knowledge to work and notified the lender of how he could expedite the paperwork and process which I was very appreciative. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine to anyone going through the home buying process.
Helen & Sam Pekovich
We were looking for a ground floor condo. Drove around trying to find something on our own and finally left our name and phone number at a gated sale. Catherine got back to us almost immediately! We explained to her we were "snow birds" and getting ready to head back to the frozen North, also told her approximately when we would be returning. She contacted us, without being asked, upon our return. This Lady is tenacious and works to find exactly what would suit your needs without being pushy or overbearing, two pluses! Any questions we had were answered almost immediately, even plodding thru grass looking for gas and water lines. No request too large or too small. We would highly recommend Catherine Marcy.
John & Judy
Catherine was our Realtor for the sale of our home in La Quinta, CA. She did an outstanding job for us, effecting the sale of our house from listing to closing in approximately 75 days. She is very knowledgeable, efficient, responsive and her marketing skills are outstanding. Catherine also priced our home competitively and effectively, allowing us to achieve the best financial results from the sale. In addition to her marketing techniques and several open houses, her advice and guidance in staging our home were a major reason we were able to sell the home quickly. Catherine is pleasant and outgoing and a pleasure to work with. Her steady and calm demeanor helped us through the selling process and she was always available when we needed to contact her with questions or needed clarification. We would, without hesitation, recommend Catherine as an exceptional and thorough Realtor. Thanks for all the hard work, Catherine!
Wayne Griffin
I want everyone to know how happy I am with Catherine Marcy. She was able to find the perfect home at the right price. Catherine guided me through the entire process; from searching for houses, to making the offer, and closing the deal. In addition, when there was a problem with the VA mortgage company she quickly found another one. She knew in advance exactly what it would take to close a VA loan and was always one-step ahead of everyone else. Catherine has redefined what it means to be a Real Estate Agent and I feel blessed to have found her.
Richard Muhleck
When dealing with matters of Real Estate, I highly recommend that you consider retaining Catherine Marcy. I found her to be an honest, motivated, and knowledgeable Realtor. She monitored and guided the sale of my property to a profitable, worry-free conclusion. Thank you Catherine.
Dick and Pat Olsen
Thank you for all the hard work to help us find the perfect home. It was an incredible adventure that you led us on. We are just amazed how you took your time with us, and very quickly figured out what we were looking for. You were so patient, available day and night to answer our questions, and always gave us all the time we needed. You were outstanding in the negotiation process, as you negotiated the absolute best price for us. How amazing.... you even negotiated the free near new washer, dryer, patio furniture, etc. You worked tirelessly every step of the way and helped us through all the piles of paper work right up to the closing and getting us the keys. The experience was the very best and we know we have made a wonderful new friend in you. We are so excited to be moving in our new home. We will certainly recommend you to anyone who wants to sell or buy a house, because we know you will do the best job for them in finding them the perfect home.
Jim Smith
Catherine was recommended to me by the president of our HOA and I could not have been more pleased with her professional performance. Her advice, from setting the price to suggesting the staging resulted in a quick sale and an efficient hassle-free closing. Being an out-of-town owner, I can attest to her easy accessibility via phone and email; her responses were always prompt and no question left unanswered. I was especially appreciative that she handled many of the small details which I had expected might need my personal attention and require me to make a few trips to Palm Springs. She exceeded my expectations in every way and I would not hesitate to recommend her for any buying or selling situation.
John Shimek
It was our distinct pleasure to work with Catherine Marcy. Her enthusiasm was infectious, making a long process enjoyable. We wish to thank her for her outstanding tenacity in finding us a home and making each outing fun! The level of her effort was amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable and at the top of her profession. Despite the long term nature of the sale, due to our move from back East, her enthusiasm never wavered nor did her belief that we would find the right home. She made it happen.
