Contact Details

Originally from Massachusetts, I have called North Carolina my home since 1996 when we moved here after spending 4 years in Blacksburg, VA. I have been in the Real Estate business for over 14 years, and began my career selling homes with my Real Estate Broker license. Along the way I discovered my passion for helping people with the finance side of the transaction and have been originating loans for the last 10 years.

​I live in the “Triangle” area with my husband of 38 years. We have two daughters that both attended Wake County Schools and North Carolina universities, and four beautiful grandchildren!

​My pledge to each of my customers is that I will provide them with peace of mind and the security of knowing that their home loan will close and fund with the rate they agreed upon – and on time – and that I will be at the closing table with them to assure that everything is as it should be!



“Typically in financial dealing you find people that are looking to have a quick sale/close/etc. Not with Cathy, the time and effort Cathy took with me was more then I could have ever hoped for. I could tell from the moment we started talking that Cathy wasn’t going to try and close a deal just for the sake of doing so; if she was going to do it, it had to be right for me and my family. My wife and I can’t thank her enough for all she did. This among so many more reasons will be why we will turn to Cathy in the future for any and all of our mortgage needs. Thank you Cathy!” — Nicholas Aronne

“Cathy was absolutely great to work with! She was always very responsive, always available, and very helpful with any and all questions. We had a very tight deadline to hit for a move across the country and she nailed it! Thank you so much for your help!”

— Adam Henkle

“Fantastic!  We gave Cathy a near impossible task – to close in 30 days at Christmas!  She gave 110% and got the loan closed.  She is patient, helpful, professional, knowledgeable, and you know from the beginning she is on your side.  Cathy also keeps you up to date on the status of the loan and responds day/night to questions.  I would recommend to anyone who is buying or refinancing a home.  Great experience.”

— Kyle Hancock

“Cathy made everything stress free and was always willing to help. When buying a house you always have tons of questions and you can get overwhelmed quickly. Cathy was able to answer all of my questions fast and accurately and then some. She is awesome to work with and a true professional.”—Nathalie Vry

​“I worked with Cathy on the Homes For Heroes program. She has a sincere appreciation for those who serve our country and it shone through in her work with Homes For Heroes recipients. Cathy is experienced, detail oriented, and efficient at getting loans completed. Her positive attitude is an asset to those who work with her.

— Mary Kim


“It is an absolute pleasure to work with a lender with Cathy’s expertise, dedication and work ethic. Cathy is very aware that with real estate transactions it is important for the lender and real estate agent to work as a team to make the home buying process a seamless one. Cathy goes above and beyond for her clients and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or refinance their home.”

— Lois Magee


“Cathy does a wonderful job assisting customers with mortgage needs. She takes the time to listen to the customer and sees the process through all the way to closing. Top notch!!!” — Joe Aiello

“Cathy is one of the best Mortgage Professionals to work with. She will answer all your questions and spend the time to make sure you understand the process. She will help you get approved so you can confidently go house hunting!” — Rodney Jones

“Cathy is, in a word, WONDERFUL! She answered all of my questions, and made my refinace experience very easy. She left no stone unturned to get me what I needed. I highly recommend Cathy, she is a great lender and a great person. ” — Andrea Breazeale
