"My agent did an exceptional job helping me through the process of buying my new home. She took the time to show me a lot of open houses in different cities and never did pressure me into buying. She took her time explaining things that I didn’t understand. She came with me at closing for which I’m very thankful. Her name is Cathy Bridges."
"Cathy Bridges recently helped us purchase a condo in Oahu. It took us a very long time to decide where to purchase. Cathy was extraordinarily patient and good-humored, even when we abandoned one search area entirely and switched to another. The biggest stumbling block was the sale of our house in California, which was delayed by an ineffective agent. Cathy researched the situation and recommended three new California agents for us to interview. The new agent we chose sold our house in six days for more than we were asking. Cathy is clearly willing to go the extra mile for each of her clients, regardless of the size of the transaction. When problems arise, she quickly steps in to fix them. She listens well and doesn’t try to influence client decisions. Her knowledge of all parts of Oahu is both extensive and growing. Her judgment of current market conditions is excellent. We are pleased with our final purchase and very grateful for her professional help. Larry and Joann Tool"
"I highly recommend Cathy Bridges. She did an exceptional job helping us buying our new home. She’s very patient, she’s shown us many open houses in different cities, she’s not pushy, she’s very sincere and she helped me understand the pros and cons of buying a home. She was with me all the way till closing. I highly recommend Cathy Bridges to my friends and family."
"A few months ago I had the pleasure of house hunting with Cathy Bridges in Kailua/Kaneohe. We quickly developed a good rapport as Cathy is easy to talk with. As we have looked at homes she has been quick to point out features, or lack there of in some cases, as it is so easy to become carried away when shopping for a home. I trust that Cathy, with her expertise, will find me the perfect home to fit my needs when I am ready to enter the market seriously and finally buy a home. Although, my quest for a home is ongoing I know that I have a great realtor to assist me every step of the way."
"My wife and I were planning to move from the mainland to Kailua. We had to make a quick move due to an immediate job opportunity. We were having a very difficult time finding a suitable rental. Cathy met us locally and spent an afternoon with us and gave us some great leads. We ultimately found a place online while back on the mainland. I offered to pay Cathy to check it out and meet with the landlord and basically represent us. She declined any payment but agreed to help us out with whatever we needed to secure the rental. We could not have done this without her. We are now living in a great home and owe much of this to her and her generous help and knowledge of the area. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a local real estate professional! Torry Lozano"
"Cathy Bridges represented our family during my most recent purchase in Hawaii. We are a military family that relocated from Washington, D.C. and were a bit unsure if we were going buy/rent in Hawaii. Cathy was great! Having a military family herself she really understood how tough of a move it was to relocate to Hawaii. Also, she knew how to take advantage of Temporary Housing while we looked for a place to purchase. She was very patient and responsive and promptly returned phone calls if she was busy. We would definitely recommend Cathy to any potential home owner military or not. Out of the three homes we own Cathy Bridges happens to be my number one Realtor."
"Cathy and her partner are an exceptional team…always available when you need them, not “pushy” like other realtors, and take a personal interest in their clients. They gave excellent advise on staging, which ultimately got above asking price. Highly recommend them."
"We live in California and Cathy helped us for over a year with sorting through properties and neighborhoods. We got a list of properties we wished to view and Cathy set it up so when we flew out to view them we still had plenty time to vacation. Although we did not buy a property on Oahu we did find one on the big island and Cathy set us up with a great contact there and we are in escrow now. Cathy also set us up with a mortgage broker. We highly recommend Cathy."
"Cathy did much more than an agent should do for the customers. We purchased the property without seeing it first and Cathy checked out everything in details for us. We are so happy with the condo we bought through her. The deal was done in May, 2014 and she still helps us. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have a pleasant time purchasing a property in Oahu."
"My wife and I did numerous real estate transactions before. We bought a condo at Hawaii Kai through Cathy. She is the best. She is not pushy. She patiently worked with us, and in the process, understood what we wanted. When an ideal unit came up, she swiftly nailed down the deal in spite of other competing offers. She helped us even after the escrow closed. Her service was way beyond the call of her duty. Best of all, working with her was fun. She is very personable. She is just like a friend, not a realtor."

"My experience with Cathy was excellent…When my wife and I began looking for a home we decided to use a family friend as our agent…However, it just so happened my wife began looking at different properties on Oahu on a website in which it listed Cathy’s number. My wife called Cathy and asked if she could make an appointment to see a home listed on the website. Cathy was out of state, but set up the appointment for us to see the home. At this point we were still going to use our friend as our agent, but once again my wife called Cathy to see if she could show us another home. Cathy met us at the home and upon meeting her she was friendly and seemed very down to earth. After looking at the home with Cathy we decided Cathy was going to be our real estate agent she was very knowledgeable about stuff my wife and I did not even think to ask or look for. How many agents do you know would get down on their knees in a dress to look under the house with you? Throughout the whole home buying process Cathy was there to answer any and all questions we had. Cathy is great and when we finally closed on our home we were glad Cathy was their to share our happiness with us. We strongly believe that people come into our lives for a reason and Cathy is just one of those people you will be glad to have met and crossed paths with…Thank you Cathy…You are an awesome real estate agent…Another plus is Cathy can relate to military families…Our experience was wonderful, among the best!!!"

"Cathy is an amazing realtor! She had houses lined up for viewing within a day of us arriving. She understood that we were new to the island and had young children we had to bring along for showings. Cathy lined up a great variety of houses with all our needs and wants. Mrs. Bridges knew the island very well along with all the various subdivisions. Not only did Cathy find us a wonderful title company she also found us superb loan agency and home owners insurance company. Overall we are very pleased with our service from Cathy Bridges. Our family is very grateful to have found a wonderful home in an excellent community and this is all thanks to Cathy."
"My husband and I bought our first home with Cathy. We talked with several Realtors and heard all the horror stories, so we wanted to meet with several before picking THE one. Cathy offered to meet us in person at a coffee shop. She understood that we had a busy schedule and was willing to literally drive all over the island to look at homes. We looked in Kailua, Kaneohe, Mililani, Northshore (no further than Pupukea), and Kapolei. She understood that we weren’t interested in Ewa and she avoided that area. She responded to emails, phone calls, and texts quickly. She was always reachable. She understood the housing market well and that good homes sell quickly here. Even after we bought our home I can still call her for advice on upgrades to our house. She still makes time for me even though I am no longer her client."

"My husband and I are currently in the process of finding our first home while taking advantage of the VA loan. Cathy has guided us through the fast-paced Kailua market with expert knowledge of the area. This guidance has allowed us to understand the market and to make informed decisions about what is best for our growing family. She has spent many hours searching homes, arranging contractor visits to ensure a sound home, and negotiating on our behalf. Cathy has exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home in this competitive market."
"From step one of the home buying process Cathy made my husband and I feel confident and excited to search for and buy our perfect first home. Cathy showed us all properties we were interested in seeing, regardless of time or distance. With her knowledge and experience she was able to assist us in narrowing down our search to our favorites. She has answered every phone call and every email quickly, every time! Working with Cathy you truly discover her passion and interest in her job, through her persistent hard work. She was on point with everything down to the last day of signing papers. We are now living in the condo of our dreams in downtown Honolulu with a gorgeous ocean view and we couldn’t be happier. Not only do we have a trusted real estate agent, we now have a great life long friend."
"Cathy is a gem! Not only professional and knowledgeable but what a delightful person! She went out of her way to help us find the right place for US. At the time I was sick and 5,000 miles away and my husband was at sea in the navy….and she still made it work! She responds immediately and genuinely cares about you….not just as a client….but as real people."
"Cathy Bridges is one of those unique realtors that doesn’t come along that often. She is knowledgeable and savvy, along with being sensitive and kind. I could not have asked for a better realtor. Cathy listened to what we wanted and showed us what we could afford, and, pursued the properties we were interested in. I bought a condo, sight unseen, which I only could do because I trusted her judgment in knowing what we wanted. I highly recommend her and would work with her again in a heartbeat!"
"First, I would like to say Cathy is an amazing realtor, with a wealth of knowledge and a willingness to share that knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor. I would like to thank her publicly for helping us find a house and with such ease. Cathy’s knowledge of the system and different locations, expedited our home buying process faster than I had expected. Cathy knew every step of the process and informed us well in advance so as we could complete each step. Not only did she make the experience quick but she also responded quick and not to mention a blast to talk to. Her communication was uncanny, I remember one of our first conversations on the phone, before we met, she was hiking and she did not say I will call you back she just took care of business right then and there. We could not have been happier to have such a trustworthy individual guiding us through the process. Thank you again Cathy and we hope to do business again or recommend business your way."
"Cathy has been an amazing realtor to work with. She truly looked out for my best interest as her client. She was always readily available to answer questions and I felt extremely comfortable working with her. She especially understood our needs looking for a home as a military family. I highly recommend Cathy!"
"Cathy walked us through each of the steps required when purchasing our home. She took the time to explain why & how each step is important. When we made our offer Cathy negotiated without questioning. She was very accommodating. She showed a lot of patience, especially when we had concerns or question about the property. She made sure that we fully understood each part of the buyers responsibilities and process. If I ever have the need to buy another home or, to sell a home I would not hesitate for a moment to chose Cathy Bridges as our represented. A big Mahalo (Thank you) to Cathy for making a process, that could have been frustrating, a very good and educational one. Also, Mahalo Cathy for going the extra mile for us. Louis Benedict"
