Catherine is an exceptional realtor and is a shining example of how real estate professionals should conduct themselves and business! We were referred to Catherine by a friend who already lived in the area. When we first met she explained that her primary goal and focus was “us” and finding the right home. She has great knowledge of the Ottawa and surrounding area and after asking us about our “wish list” (location, home attributes, what we definitely did not want, etc) she knew exactly what we were looking for and lined up multiple showings. Every time we viewed a property Catherine would perform a methodical walkthrough inspection and comment on quality, signs of problems or concerns, etc. She led us through every step of negotiations via long distance and was extremely responsive to all of our questions and needs, quickly handling any issues or addressing any outstanding items that may have risen. Catherine was purposeful in the walkthrough of all contracts and signing to ensure full understanding of all terminology and obligations of seller/buyer (I have sold/purchased several homes and not 1 realtor has done this in the past). She genuinely cared that we were satisfied with our final decision and purchase. We were impressed with Catherine’s integrity, genuine interest, trustworthiness and professionalism. We would highly recommend working with Catherine to anyone seeking to buy or sell in the Ottawa or surrounding area. Catherine is the epitome of what a realtor should be.

Catherine is extremely knowledgeable in marketing and selling houses.
She will guide you through every step of buying and selling your home. Catherine provided me with a thorough market analysis with neighbourhood comparables to determine a true market value of my home. She offered staging advise, even provided a more suitable table to accommodate my small dining room. She hired an amazing photographer and showcased my home on social media (Facebook/Instagram) as well as MLS.
Always on time, always reachable, and feedback is quick and detailed. Catherine is a wonderful person and I would highly recommend her services! 5 offers and sold over list!!

Catherine has the knowledge, the infrastructure and the character to make real estate decisions as enjoyable and seamless as can be. As a first-time home buyer, Catherine’s patience and genuine willingness to educate was especially valuable. Receiving automated emails on properties that matched my desired criteria, ensured I didn’t miss anything. Thank you for helping make this a really enjoyable experience!

I enjoyed Catherine’s ‘matter of fact’ attitude and knowledge of the industry. She was honest in assessing the market and making appropriate suggestions to achieve a successful sale. I enjoyed her as a person. She was willing, showed no discomfort, dislike, inconvenience whatever presented. Thank you for a very satisfying business transaction.

Catherine was very easy to work with and we always felt that she was working with our best interest in hand. We trusted her judgement and knowledge with regards to the Real Estate market. Catherine has a high level of professionalism, attention to detail and is very prompt in responding throughout both
the purchasing and selling of our homes. We would gladly recommend her to our friends.

Making the decision to move was difficult for us, but deciding to have Catherine help us was not. From our first meeting, Catherine made us feel at ease. We were extremely impressed with her professionalism and her honest and caring attitude. In the end, our house sold in 7 days and we couldn’t have dreamed of having a better experience.

I’ve never seen such hard working and dedicated agents. I’m very happy for you both to see the SOLD sign. It’s been a pleasure.

Catherine and Elizabeth, you are the best and most professional agents I have met in my career. In addition to this, you are devoted, passionate, and sincere and it has been a privilege to collaborate with you. You never let us down… And you have honoured your obligations and always protected xxxxx’s interests. Congrats and good luck! Our paths will cross again!
— Maxime Vandal
Catherine, thank you for making the purchase of our first home such a wonderful experience. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent. You were considerate of our needs, knowledgeable and caring. We will definitely contact you again in the future! Thank you again for everything.

From the moment we met Catherine we knew we were in very capable hands. She explained to us that her primary focus was on us, and selling our house. Her knowledge of the Real Estate industry along with her professionalism and passion for her work, sets her apart as an exceptional realtor. Our house sold in 6 days, well above our asking price. We would highly recommend Catherine, she was a joy to work with!

We had a great experience with Catherine Swift. She was always available which is really important when you are looking for the house of your dreams and there are a million people like you looking for the same thing. We also had a lot of advice from her and we learned a lot in the process. So just keep being the best realtor ever!
— Majela and Karel
Catherine Swift was patient, honest and so helpful in our quest to find a new and bigger home. She went above and beyond to help us stage our condo and it definitely helped us get the maximum return. In the end we found our dream house outside of town and she was there every step of the way! Highly recommend 🙂

Catherine is exceptional to work with. As first-time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and concerns. Catherine helped to ease all of them in a way that was informative and non judgmental. She was lightning quick with responses and scheduling of looking at new properties; and even got us through the door before anyone else. Without Catherine in our corner, we believe that we would not have been successful finding the perfect home!

I have just purchased my first home and I am very fortunate to have worked with Catherine on this new adventure. Catherine is responsive and will make herself available for any questions that you may have. Catherine is also patient throughout the process and will take the time explain the process and any required documentation. Catherine will take note of your interests and requirements in a property to create a custom search for you and will provide you with detailed comparables to help you submit a competitive but fair offer. Catherine also does a great job of relaying information from the selling agent so that you do not miss a beat. Overall, a great agent and person who will look out for your best interest. I have already recommend Catherine to some friends and would not hesitate to recommend again!
