Services

For Sellers, I am diligent in my efforts to sell homes.I go well beyond the MLS and yard signage to provide maximum exposure and put our home’s best foot forward to sell at the highest price, best terms, and efficiency.I use today’s cutting edge technology including multiple digitally enhanced photos, video tours, and over50 online marketing sites including MLS, Realtor.com, Google, Zillow,Houses.com, Trulia, YouTube, FaceBook, Craig’s List, and MySanAntonio.com to name a few.With this exposure, openhouses, and attractive staging and presentation materials, Cathy Bureau sells homes efficiently.

For Buyers, I am diligent in my efforts to buy homes.I provide a FREE buyer consultation to provide a road map of the process that includes: personal budgeting, qualifying for the purchase, identify properties, guide you with your choices, coordinate property tours, prepare offers, help negotiate the terms, evaluate the property condition and review green options, negotiate repairs and improvements, and facilitate the closing process - efficiently and timely.

For Investors, I can help you with a variety of financial tools to help you determine the best properties for your objectives (GRM or CAP Rate).If you are an out-of-towner, for a small service fee I will search on your behalf and don’t require your presence other than closing and funding, which often can be done remotely as well.You are probably interested in distressed properties so be safe in knowing I know how to navigate those waters. Need a property manager? I have a few I can recommend.

For Commercial Tenants, the biggest concerns are parking, timing, lease options, & finding the best location. I’m here to help you with all that & more. I'm skilled and equipped to consult with you on your options, identify properties, negotiate terms including build out, expansion options clauses, signage options, non-compete clauses, parking concerns, and CAM cost management.

LOOK WHO'S TALKING ABOUT CATHY

The fact that we were given short notice as to our having to relocate probably made your job more challenging but you definitely were up to the challenge. From the first day you showed that you were going to take care of us. I remember that you were making phone calls inquiring about some potential space within an hour of our initial meeting. We also appreciate your quick response to phone calls and emails. And we will not forget all your guidance in dealing with our prior landlord. We were put in a position that involved having to deal with "relocation clauses" & negotiating "lease termination agreements" which was foreign to us but your representation was reassuring throughout this process. Cathy, you are a true professional and it is evident that you love what you do. Jorge, Socorro, Lily, myself, and all our staff will always be grateful to you for all your help. I will not hesitate referring your name whenever the opportunity arises. Thanks again and may God Bless you in the future. – Vict

Experience

Cathy Bureau has successfully helped people with their real estate needs in the residential and commercial sectors since 2005. Her background in commercial launched with the launch of The Stabauch’s Company’s San Antonio office, as the Broker’s Assistant,which meant marketing coordinator, marketing research analyst, and everything else the broker didn’t have time to do, giving her a chance to gain expert experience in all facets of commercial leasing brokerage.TSC is a specialized office leasing consulting service recently acquired by Jones Lange LaSalle.Her time with TSC was part of a project with the University of Texas at San Antonio.

LOOK WHO'S TALKING ABOUT CATHY:
Cathy, we were just talking about you the other day, about how much easier you made our transaction. You would have saved us a bunch of time and headaches - LOL! That's why anytime we hear a friend or coworker looking into buying or selling that we ALWAYS drop your name. That's also why I said [at closing] that we were grateful you handled the house purchase flawlessly. I am always willing to be a reference for you. - Cecil & Annette Price.

Cathy, we really appreciate all your help in selling the house. We were just talking about how relieved we were to sell the house in such a short period of time, and in a difficult market. The pictures on-line looked nice; it's amazing what a difference the changes you recommended made. Thank you for sell our house quickly & getting us a full-price offer! - Irma Rodriguez

Cathy, you are amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us with our first house. You're the best! - Doug & Melanie Garner

Cathy, you have been the nicest person to us. You are such a role model and inspiration to my daughter. I only hope she is half as good at her job as you are at yours. We will owe you forever. I wish you had been my mom! - Tomas & Cat Arias

Qualifications

Many of Cathy’s clients began asking questions about “short sales” and “foreclosures,” so being the professional that Cathy is; she initiated the NAR SFR (Short Sale and Foreclosure) designation to provide outstanding service and expertise.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) commenced the GREEN designation to create a baseline understanding of green building offerings. Cathy found that to be quite appealing since her mantra is “Make the World a Better Place” derived from her Girl Scout Leader ideology so she obtained it in 2009. She learned about the Eco Broker Council a few months later and since it went much more into depth about the performance facets of building science, she also obtained that designation.

The Short Sale Foreclosure (SFR) Designation provides assurance that I am up to date on today’s distressed property concerns.This specialization along with my work experience provides assurance that I am able to help transact the most complicated scenarios.

The EcoBroker Council and National Association of Realtor’s GREEN Designations provide you the value added service of energy efficiency, sustainability, and indoor air quality consulting.This is especially helpful for individuals suffering from allergies and asthma, investors and those who want to reduce their utility bills or carbon footprint.
