REALTOR®

CLHMS, GRI, MCNE

A move is so much more than buying or selling a property and Cathy understands that well! Her approach to real estate is personal and fine-tuned to meet each buyer and seller’s unique wants and needs. From the initial conversation through the packing and unpacking, Cathy guides her clients through the subtle nuances of the process every step of the way! She is her clients’ advocate and it is her professional service, communication, and integrity that will ease your burden and make their move a success.

Cathy is equally skilled with listening to her buyer’s criteria for finding the right home as she is with preparing and marketing a property for sale, and she takes great joy in working with families relocating to Austin.

Cathy and her family moved to Austin in February of 2000 – they’ve put down deep roots and can’t imagine living anywhere else. She is the proud mother of two wonderful girls who make her laugh out loud! They have attended both public and private schools and have been involved in city-wide arts and sports organizations. Cathy has built a comprehensive list of service contractors, vendors, school and medical contacts, etc. and she is happy to share those resources with her clients.

Again, a move is so much more that a sale or a purchase – let Cathy work with you to sell your property or to find the perfect neighborhood and home!

Cathy was a pleasure to work with and exceeded our expectations. She is extremely responsive, very knowledgeable and provided a number of extra services to ensure our needs were fulfilled.

Cathy Trifiro is amazing! This gal knows her real-estate! She is patient, extremely knowledgable and she does an incredible job guiding clients through the process of buying/renting a house. We have had the wonderful experience of being able to use Cathy twice in the last couple years. We moved back to Austin in 2012 and she was recommended to us to help us find a place to rent. At the time we were in Chicago and I had a new born baby, so traveling to Austin to look at homes was not an option. Via long distance, I was able to give her insight as to what and where we were looking and then she and my mother viewed homes together and they found one for us. We just bought a home with Cathy as our realtor and she made the process seamless. Buying a house is certainly a lot of work and a bit frightening, but Cathy remained very professional, very knowledgable, and truly helped guide us through the entire process. We could not have done it without her and we were constantly very impressed by her. Bottom line is she is awesome! Highly recommended by us!

We cannot possibly say enough positive things about our experience working with Cathy – she absolutely provided exemplary, personalized service that exceeded our expectations, and we would highly recommend her to others in our circumstance!

For our family, this was our first interstate move, so having an agent with deep local knowledge and equal amounts of patience and tenacity was very important to us. Cathy provided all of that and more, over more than a year of seeing us through the challenge of the ups and downs of looking while we were still endeavoring to sell our former home in a less robust market, then seeing us through several homes that failed at the inspection stage, then finally landing at our new home with the right strategic approach in this white hot market. Along the way, she helped provide advice and contacts for all of the related services we needed, such as mortgage services, and has continued to provide great suggestions for contractors and other service providers since closing.

All of this, she did while displaying a great sense of humor as well as compassion for the frustrations that are part of the process of buying a home and especially when doing so in an unfamiliar market with challenging conditions. Cathy is quite clearly a great asset to your organization and a wonderful example of professionalism, and we are so very fortunate to have connected with her!

We met Cathy Trifiro through a mutual friend and we couldn't be happier with everything she's done for us. She helped us purchase our first home here in Austin during a very challenging market for buyers. She always provided honest advice and was very accommodating of our crazy schedules. Cathy also has a lot of experience with remodeling (she's remodeled all of her homes!), so she was able to easily spot issues vs. easy fixes that weren't obvious to us when looking at a house. She referred us to our contractor, flooring person, and had a great crew for our inspection!

We had a lot of requirements for our home, and during our 4 months of searching she never grew wary of our constant stream of phone calls, showings, comp reviews, and offers. She was absolutely willing to do whatever was necessary to help us get into the home we wanted! Cathy made submitting offers, negotiating with other agents, and the entire closing process so easy and worry-free. We will definitely be using Cathy if we ever move in Austin again! We would highly recommend Cathy to anyone looking for a great agent.

My husband and I live in the UK and plan to move to the USA in the very near future. We were introduced to Cathy Trifiro by a mutual friend all the way over here in England, so her reputation extends a long way! That's just how good she is. Cathy has been an excellent help to us as we've searched for a home in the Austin area and she has exceeded all of our expectations. She went well above and beyond what we would've expected in her assistance to us in our complicated case of trying to deal with buying a house and doing a loan from overseas. We have now successfully closed on our house and genuinely feel if we hadn't of had Cathy fighting for us in our corner we wouldn't have achieved this. We know several other families who are also relocating from either other US states or the UK and we have already heartily recommended Cathy and the Realty Austin site. We found Cathy to be very efficient and professional in the service she provided and this left us feeling confident with her representing us. We equally found her to have a very friendly and relational manner which made us feel like we were doing business with a close friend who was looking out for our best. So all in all we couldn't have expected better care or service and we hope that we will have many opportunities to send Cathy more business in the future! Many thanks from two very satisfied clients and new home owners!

August 2013

Cathy Trifiro was a pleasure to work with. It's hard enough trying to move from another state and being unfamiliar with the area. Cathy patiently took us around Austin and shared her views on pros and cons with many of the areas we looked at. Mostly, she was thoughtful and considerate of time and made sure she always was there assisting us through our home buying process. We would definitely recommend Cathy to anyone!

Mike

July 2013

Cathy was great. I would feel comfortable recommending her to my friends. Thank you.

José

We had the pleasure of having Cathy Trifiro sell our lake home last month. She is a true professional in every regard. When panic set in, she developed a plan to keep everything on track to a successful conclusion. We would not hesitate to recommend Cathy to any and all prospective buyers and sellers in real estate. She was a delight and we thank her and Realty Austin for the great experience.

Harry & Kay Sockol

Cathy Trifiro is definitely the best real estate professional I have encountered. From the beginning of my quest to the closing, she handled every detail of the transaction (I think the Seller truly enjoyed working with her as well). I would definitely recommend Cathy to my friends and clients.

Frances H. Bennett

I was introduced to Cathy Trifiro several years ago through a mutual friend. When my husband and I decided to buy a second home in Austin she was top on our list. After one call to Cathy we knew that together we would find just the place we were looking for in Austin. Her attention to us during the sales process was beyond compare. Cathy is truly a great realtor. She listened to our wish list and ensured that our interest were served every step of the way. It will be our pleasure to refer Cathy and Realty Austin to anyone we know that is considering purchasing or selling their home in Austin.

John & Laura Pinto

‎Cathy Trifiro rocks! She's an experienced, skilled agent who is patient and worked really hard for us! She's a good, level-headed negotiator, and when we got a great offer on our beloved home of 20 years (panic!), her knowledge of the market (and us) helped us find a great home for us to buy in a matter of a couple days (whew!). Oh, and she has a great sense of humor, too... which fit in very well to the occasional stresses that can accompany such big transactions!

Tom McClure, Facebook Review

I am a real estate attorney with over 30 years of experience.  In 2011 I decided to sell my house and got Cathy's name from a trusted friend.  Cathy did a thorough analysis of my home's value and recommended some repairs and updates.  She also recommended a designer to stage the vacant house.  Counting the repairs and staging, this all took about 3 weeks.  We put the house on the market in May.  WOW!  It sold in 3 days for 98% of listed price and at a price above what I thought we could get.  Cathy negotiated and followed up well on getting the deal closed.  What a great and easy process, even in a somewhat tough market!  I enthusiastically recommend Cathy as your Realtor.

Bruce Morrison

When my family and I relocated to Austin, Cathy was terrific. Not only did she help us find the right house and shepherd the process through without a hitch, but Cathy also proved to be a valuable asset in directing us to good doctors, handymen and others. Add to all that, Cathy really listened to our questions and concerns, and was a real pleasure to work with.

Grant and Ileen Perry

Cathy and I met at an open house, realized we had lots of mutual friends and hit it off immediately! She was so helpful after the death of my father as my sister and I had to clean out and sell our family home.  The guidance that Cathy and her team gave us with updating and staging was invaluable.  We were extremely pleased with the entire process and sales price!  She also helped me in the purchase of my new townhome and she understood exactly what I was looking for. Having Cathy as my realtor was the best decision ever!

Kay Gooch

We had a great experience working with Cathy. Her personality, knowledge, communication, candor and professionalism were impressive. She did a great job negotiating the sale and purchase of our homes – a total of three, now! She was our realtor at the beginning but now she’s our friend. We recommend her to all our friends because we know she will go out of her way to make things happen for them, too!

Rick Whittemore and Ernie Barrera

We are absolutely thrilled with our new home in Austin. We began emailing and talking with Cathy before we left Atlanta. By the time we came to Austin she knew what we were looking for, we found our home – mission accomplished! She also helped with referrals for getting set up in a new city. Cathy is wonderful and we recommend her to anyone thinking of moving to Austin.

Rick and Margaret Norris

Cathy worked tirelessly to help me find the perfect condo. I had a lot of requirements for my first place and a very small budget, but Cathy never made me feel like I was any less important because of it. If we walked in to a place and I knew it wasn't for me, she didn't try to convince me otherwise. She listened to me and was very professional at all times, not to mention fun!
