“Cathie is fantastic. We were referred to her via a friend, and she was superb. She was able to pick up on our preferences quickly, and was able to accommodate us when we had limited time to visit the area. She wasn’t pushy or phony and we genuinely enjoyed spending the days with her looking at homes. And ultimately, it was her eye that found us a phenomenal house that we would have overlooked, and her guidance that helped us win the bid in this insane market. We’ll certainly use her again in the future.”
“Cathie Mondello was terrific. She was helpful, friendly, responsive, and professional. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home, or selling property.”
Cathie helped us find the home of our dreams in 2014, and recently helped us close on a contiguous parcel. We have referred her to friends and family and couldn’t recommend her enough to anyone looking to buy in the Hudson Valley. She knows the area and is very personable and thoughtful. Communication is easy. 5 stars!
When we bought our first home in 2004 it was over a year long search and a hassle front to back. When we decided to sell that house in 2019 we had noticed that most homes for sale in the area had a “Mondello” sign in the yard. We also noticed that the signs were quite quickly gone and moving vans in those driveways. We were so glad we decided to call Cathie Mondello to help us appraise our home and search for the next house. She was amazing! She came prepared with comparable home prices that had recently sold in the area, which were reasonable and what we had expected. We looked at three or four houses with Cathie, at our request in one day, she didn’t push anything on us. Cathie mentioned after the last one that she thought she had our style and preferences pegged and would get back to us the next day with other options to look at. I stumbled across a house just outside of town in the same school district that same day and called her, which is when she told us a family wanted to buy our home. Cathie showed us the house and we loved it! Cathie recommended a home inspector who performed a very timely and thorough inspection. Cathie negotiated with the previous home owner to make corrections found during inspection and she even managed to line up the closing of our old house and the closing of our new house in the same day with everyone involved! None of this could have gone smoother if it weren’t for Cathie and her team. I hope the family in our old home are happy and get at least 15 years of memories out of it too. We are grateful to make new memories in our new home. We have Cathie Mondello to thank for this seamless, painless (minus the moving part), stress-free, awesome experience. I have no plans of ever moving again but if we do, I will be calling Cathie (and a professional moving service). In the meantime, we will be recommending her to anyone asking. It took Cathie just under four months to sell our house and get us into our new house and it took us a year and a half to write this review … our apologies and our most sincere THANK YOU!
