Meet Cathy

I am Cathy, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about the services I can offer you. I began my real estate career after being a licensed interior designer for 22 years and owning my own interior design firm.  For me, a career move to real estate was a natural transition as my design background is very instrumental in assisting real estate clients by guiding them to see their current or future home's greatest potential.
I truly understand that buying or selling a home will be one of the most important decisions you will make, and your wishes and needs are first and foremost while establishing a long-term relationship built on care and trust. I pride myself with outstanding service, support, knowledge of the current market, and strong negotiating skills to enable you to make sound, timely, and secure decisions for your family. I am dedicated to ensuring that all transactions proceed in a smooth, satisfying, and positive manor, from beginning to end, in order to make home buying and/or selling a pleasant experience for you. 
Selling real estate is not only my job; it's what I love to do. A repeat client or a referral is a testament that not only did I do my job previously, but that I did a great job. It means I helped someone to find a place to live where they can live, grow, and thrive, or I assisted a client in selling their home which enabled them to move on to the next phase of their future. 
The reputation of Walt Danley Realty for the highest level of service and technology present a highly unique advantage in the luxury real estate market. Combined with my successful track record and prestigious designations and certifications, I have proven to be an expert agent in my field and I appreciate the opportunity of earning your business. 
I have lived with my husband in the DC Ranch and North Scottsdale area for over 30 years, and we currently reside and work in DC Ranch. Thank you for visiting my website and learning more about how me and my team can assist you with your real estate needs. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Cathy's Testimonials
I worked with Cathy when selling a property in a lean market. She found me a qualified buyer and handled all the details of the transaction professionally and enthusiastically. She was very sensitive to my needs as well as the buyers, and was always two steps ahead in the process. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends. ~Ed~
We were extremely happy to have Cathy work with us to sell and buy our homes, simultaneously. Cathy scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and on weekends, and provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale. She promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. She worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation. We really appreciated Cathy's calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Cathy was an outstanding professional and we look forward to working with her again in the future. ~ Chad and Tina~
Cathy is very personable and fun to do business with. She was also very patient and poised with us through both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our previous condo. All in all the process could not have gone smoother allowing us to both buy and sell residences is a very short window, and in a tough market.~ Fred and Alexis~
We have purchased seven homes over the past 25 years and our home shopping and buying process with Cathy was one of the best. Cathy is energetic, knowledgeable, and hard working. Even though most of the process was long distance, the entire transaction was organized and professional, she is a true pleasure to work with. ~ Bill and Sandy~
We want to thank Cathy for all of her help, not only with the purchase of a second home in while we were in another state, but also with our current efforts to now sell that property and purchase another in Scottsdale. She effortlessly guided us through all of the details and nuances of the entire transaction, making short and easy work of a complicated exercise. Originally our Realtor, now our friend!~ Charlie and Laura~
I could have not been happier with the services Cathy has provided on several of our real estate dealings. Her knowledge of the ins and outs of "making it happen" on each transaction was so appreciated, all done out of state! Her professionalism, understanding of the market, and outstanding negotiation skills truly made all my real estate business pleasurable experiences. Cathy's love of her job shines through with her energetic spirit and great attitude and I look forward to working with her again in the future. ~ Lee~

Thank you for taking the time to read my biography and how I might assist you with your real estate needs.

I have been a realtor in the Valley of the Sun for over 16 years. I LOVE what I do. How blessed I am to have won numerous awards for something I have a passion for. My clients say my knowledge and direct and honest demeanor puts them at ease knowing I will ALWAYS have their best interest at heart.


Prior to real estate, I enjoyed a long and successful career in software sales with a Fortune 100 company in Dallas, TX. I understand the business and the financial implications associated with selling your home. With 30+ years in sales and marketing, I understand the importance of HOW your home is marketed and the most up-to-date techniques/resources available in today's market to get it sold! It can be an emotional experience as well. I try to be very sensitive to your needs and requirements. There are those false promises of those who say "I can get your home sold for more money in less time or I'll buy it myself." I say "if it sounds too good to be true, it is." As your Realtor, my job is to price your home at market value, use good and solid marketing techniques that work, and sell it with professionalism and honesty.


Assisting buyers requires understanding the market (is it a buyer's or seller's market?) navigating th2 market options, and knowing and utilizing available resources available outside of just the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Today's buying process can be complicated and confusing. There are numerous way to access property for sale. Typical ones are Trulia,,, Redfin, OfferPad (buy a home without an agent), Craig's List, Auctions, Pre-foreclosures, Short Sales, "Off market" properties, etc. You MUST HAVE an experienced agent you can trust to explain these websites and options. Some are very misleading. When purchasing a home, an investment property, or land, what's the best way to take title? Or could it be a 1031 Exchange, involve FIRPTA, or a complicated family trust? I will guide you through these considerations.

I have built a solid reputation as an educated agent who will make sure you have all the information you need to make an educated and wise decision. I thrive on listening to my clients, setting expectations, solving challenges, and delivering value. I'm committed to providing every client with exceedingly personalized service and exceptional, professional, and comprehensive expertise from start to finish. I love to go beyond the completion of the sale with my clients. Buying or selling a home is personal. I'm very fortunate to have made so many wonderful friends as a result of my many real estate transactions.
