Greetings! I have been a part of the Wilmington community for 35 years and am happy to call it home. My professional life has been an evolution starting in dentistry with a brief stint in theatre and television, a few years in advertising and finally landing in real estate. My broad experience in the workplace and my own home ownership has given me some very useful skills. I enjoy helping my clients buy and sell homes. I am detail oriented and determined. Real estate transactions are all unique and often complicated. I keep my clients informed and as relaxed as possible. Personal service is important to me. I take pride in walking my clients through the process with energy and enthusiasm. Let me help you make Wilmington home.
I started my search with Catherine while still living in Phoenix, AZ. Knowing nothing about the local area left a lot to be trusted, and she did NOT disappoint. Within 10 minutes of our first phone call she had me setup with listings specific to my wants and needs. Her local knowledge was very impressive.
After showing me several homes, I finally found the "one." Which couldn't have been easy for her, because I'm a huge pain in the neck to be 100% honest. Every time I called to look at new homes, she was equally, if not more excited to go see them. I'm not new to the home-buying process, so it was nice to know I was dealing with a local professional with excellent expertise.
It took a couple weeks for me to go into the contract on the specific home I had interest in, and Catherine never let me give in. She spent roughly a week just to get me into contract in the first place - and kept me in the loop the whole time. Based on the deal I got, I'd say her negotiation skills are well above average, and she kept me in the "loop" the whole time. In fact, I don't remember a single time I called or text her in the last two months in which she didn't answer or respond immediately.
Catherine absolutely knocked my expectations out of the park! From the moment we met, to the moment she handed my GF the keys (VERY smart Realtor, this one...) Overall, my experience with her was fantastic, and I'd gladly recommend anyone in the world in working with Catherine.
I had the wonderful pleasure of Catherine Lea assisting me in the purchase of my new condo. Catherine is courteous, responsible and very very resourceful. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Catherine for your real estate needs, should definitely do so!
Catherine Lea is an excellent Real Estate Professional. She is very well read about Wilmington Real Estate and knows the area like the back of her hand. Every time I contacted Catherine she got back to me immediately.
When my husband and I make a decision to sell our present home, Catherine will be the agent we call. Thanks again Catherine.
