Get to know Cathy Tishhouse

I have had a few professions:  a corporate trainer in the hospitality industry;  in Human Resources in charge of staffing and recruiting; a registration fulfillment manager and seminar leader for an education company.  Now, as a Realtor, I have found my favorite profession - I love what I do!.  I get to create new ways to develop my business along with marketing strategies for myself and my listings; the flexibility of my schedule; Viewing all the different homes and interiors; I am in many different places during the day; and I am my own boss--to name a few. 

Mostly, I love it because I know I make a difference in my interactions with people and the service I provide.  I have made a difference with people relocating from another state, with first time buyers, and with investors.  My sister was a highly successful Realtor in the Kalamazoo area and inspired me to choose this career.  We had so much to talk about in sharing the same profession.   She passed away unexpectedly several years ago and over 500 people attended her funeral--a majority of them from her Real Estate profession--current and past clients.  The stories they shared about the difference she made helping them find their homes are still an inspiration to me.

    I was the type of buyer who was not looking for a specific area, or a specific size, but a specific TYPE of home. That can be tricky business, but she took it in stride. She also got me through a two month negotiation process - highly recommend.

    We were struggling with how to go about selling our home in Ferndale from the other end of the country. Cathy Tishhouse guided us through the process and was great to work with. When we first spoke to Cathy we were frustrated with the process after trying to sell our home through several different avenues since 2009. In a tough market for sellers, she made sure our home was visible through a lot of different websites. She was easy to get in touch with and kept us up to date with comments from showings. When we had an offer, she and her staff were great at coordinating paperwork and getting documents back and forth between Washington and Michigan with ease. If you are looking for someone to help sell your home, definitely get in touch with Cathy. She will do all she can to help you reach your goal.

    I have worked with numerous real estate agents before working with Cathy. We purchased our first two rental homes within the past 12 months, and both were through Cathy. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, professional, and she is quick to respond to my needs.

    Cathy sold our house in just three short weeks in a very slow and tough market. We truly believe it would have taken much longer if not for her. 5 out of 5 stars!

    Cathy was a joy to work with and we have since recommended her to many of our friends and family. We are both working parents with little kids, and she was very flexible with our schedule making herself available during evenings and weekends. She sold our house in just two weeks and helped us find a new beautiful home for our family in a perfect neighborhood. She is definitely a pro when it comes to the use of various online tools to sell homes, and we would definitely work with her again!

    Cathy was instrumental in helping us find our dream home. She helped my wife and I navigate the foreclosure process with ease. She clearly knows the industry and her expertise was a big reason we were able to get our house. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor.
