Get to know Cathy Turney


I am Managing Partner at Better Homes Realty in Walnut Creek (San Francisco Bay Area), California and have been in the real estate industry for over 30 years. As you can imagine, I have a lot to talk about, which led me to write and publish "Laugh Your Way to Real Estate Sales Success." It won national and international American Business Awards for best business book of the year in 2015.

The need to become "relevant" to readers further led me (an avowed technophobe) to conquer Twitter which I wrote about in "Get 10,000+ Twitter Followers - Easily, Quickly, Ethically," due out in June of 2017.

Rusty Shelton, best-selling co-author of "Mastering the New Media Landscape" and founder of the award-winning marketing agency Shelton Interactive, says that it is "one of the best books on building a Twitter audience that I have ever read. Cathy has been there and done that when it comes to Twitter success (after starting from scratch) and she shares her game plan fully, with many illustrations to make it easy. I'll be recommending this must-have guide to our clients for years to come."

I've been published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Huffington Post, Realtor Magazine, and The Concordian and have spoken before the San Francisco Writers Conference, Contra Costa Board of Realtors, and the National Society of Newspaper Columnists. I graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz.

I believe that humor makes everything better!
