“It has been my experience that Cathleen’s design background tied together with her ability to assess a property’s high points and shortcomings have resulted in both staging and preparation recommendations to the sellers that have optimized prices for the seller as well as resulting in faster and more successful closings. Her energy, enthusiasm and commitment to buyers and sellers has made her a leader in the industry.”

Record Time

“We have been in the market for the past 3 years. We have worked with several agents throughout this time. They were all professional and knowledgable. However, Cathy is in a class of her own. Her background in real estate construction, interior designing, and extensive sales history make her the ultimate realtor. She has an amazing ability to analyze a house from top to bottom, pointing out things most would miss, even other real estate professionals. She is great at remodeling a house all in her mind and seeing a house in its full potential. She is extremely resourceful, having a long list of subcontractors at her disposal. This became very handy during Escrow and after closing escrow. Above all is her personality and character. She is very kind, sweet, honest, and tremendously patient. Her even keeled mannerism, and professional approach got us through a very difficult escrow process (no thanks to the lender), always keeping all parties engaged and cooperating. She never pressured us, allowed us to take our time in finding the home we liked. She worked extremely hard, often til late hours to make sure things were done in an expeditious manner. We were definitely not easy clients. Thanks to her, we found our dream home. I recommend Cathy Shera without any reservation. If you are reading this review to find the right agent, you will find the best in Cathy.”

Vast Experience


“Cathleen Shera helped us find a second home in Fairbanks Ranch, Rancho Santa Fe California. We were buying from a distance, being based in Indiana – so this put extra emphasis on communication and the need to fully understand our needs. Cathleen spent time understanding what we were looking for and helped us narrow down our options to the top 10 or so properties. We made one visit to the area, and with Cathleen’s help viewed the top 5 properties and were able to make a decision within two days following. Cathleen pushed hard in the negotiation phase and we were more than happy with the final agreed terms. She understands all of the ins and outs of the requirements which followed the initial agreement – and she worked hard to ensure all terms were met at closure. I would highly recommend Cathleen Shera to anyone looking to purchase a home in Del Mar, RSF and surrounding areas.”
