"Cathy Travis is a very confident, caring and creative realtor.  We were fortunate to have multiple bids for our house and Cathy did an excellent job of managing the bids.  She is a great 'people person' and quite intuitive when reading potential buyers.  We are grateful for the excellent job she did selling our home.  Thanks Cathy!!"

If you are searching for the best person to represent your property to its fullest potential... stop searching because you have found her.

Cathy was easy to interview and refreshing to hear her honest opinions.  She wasn't afraid to tell us her recommendations and what approaches work best for her on the current market.  We live in another province from our property, and she always made time for clear communication with us.  If you choose to use her staging service - which you most certainly should - you will not be disappointed!  We were blown away by the overall transformation of our condo.  Her integrity shines in her work.  She has great attention to detail and because she is a realtor I believe she really understands how to showcase the very best of a room to buyers.  Her professional photographer also stood out and captured the essence of what each room could be.

She was caring and flexible with our needs, after reflection from our first meeting she agreed to list our property at a different price than previously discussed.  We respected her very much for being so open, and letting us follow what felt right.  In comparison, we listed our property prior with a different agent and even though we entered the market at an incredibly low price point then, it did not result in a single offer in 7 weeks.  There were many things that stood out to using a realtor with expertise in their field.  With Cathy as our agent we received multiple offers after 24 hours and accepted way above asking price.

Out time working with Cathy was short but sweet.  She took initiative and worked on our behalf during the 30 crazy hours we were on the market, continuing to keep us up to date and confident with how things were unfolding from a province away.  It was remarkable how pain free she made this process and we can't say enough positive things about her work and it resulting in such a wonderful sale.  We will be recommending her whenever we can.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Ms. Cathy Travis when she served as the listing agent for the sale of my home located at 1708 Woodsend Drive in Victoria, BC in 2010.  The home was a luxury property, tastefully designed, on 11 acres, with landscaped gardens, a finished tennis court and a well-maintained, regularly-used large outdoor pool.  I was impressed with her diligence, professionalism, and market expertise in managing the timely sale of my property in what was a most challenging real estate market.  Moreover, she worked so very hard to see the sale of my home through difficult circumstances --tough market conditions, marketing to a pool of inherently discerning, even quirky prospective purchasers, and in the end, closing the deal despite the most demanding of buyers.

I selected Cathy after interviewing several agents in the greater Victoria area for the strength of her experience in managing the sale of comparable luxury homes and her recognition of the unique features of the Victoria real estate market. It is worth noting that I had listed the property for approximately 12 months with a well-known realty firm in Victoria and an agent that had represented me when I bought the home in 2001.  The contrasts in style, effort, and approach could not be more different.  Victoria residential real estate is unique, reflective of its two and even three tiered market.  Cathy is highly experienced in the luxury residential market, but she also understands that properties, given varying market conditions, sometimes must be sold not just listed and marketed in a traditional manner.  I learned that it is essential to select an agent that is positioned well in the upper and highest-end residential market, one who has access to prospective buyers outside the Victoria and Vancouver area.

I would not hesitate to hire Cathy again.  I would not wish to negotiate the Canadian luxury real estate market without her expertise.  From my perspective, given the stakes, I would insist upon Cathy leading my effort to buy or sell in that market.  If it would prove helpful to you in your decision process, I would be happy to speak with you personally on Cathy's behalf.

Sincerely,

Are you moving to Victoria from the Prairies?

"After carefully examining our retirement options, my wife and I decided to craft a plan to move to Victoria from the prairies where we've spent most of our lives. 

We spent many hours searching the online MLS listings and eventually contacted Cathy Travis who offered to show us around for a weekend.

We flew to Victoria, toured numerous properties and after painless negotiations purchased a new home ten minutes from downtown.

Throughout the process it was refreshing to engage a salesperson whose promises came true in every respect.

If you need help sorting out your real estate options on the other side of the mountains, relax and contact Cathy Travis."

"My husband and I met Cathy on a whirlwind weekend trip to Victoria to look for a "retirement" property, two years ago. Not only did we look but we purchased that same weekend. Cathy was instrumental in helping us get the home of our dreams. She was open, honest and went out of her way to ensure the process was smooth and glitch-free. We still keep in regular contact with Cathy, as a friend and colleague!"
