Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Cathy was different right from the start. We had engaged two agents prior to hiring Cathy. Despite impressive presentations and promises these other agents did not get our house sold nor did they provide feedback on buyer objections. Cathy and her husband Tomas, a first rate interior designer, came to our house and gave us a comprehensive list of suggested improvements and explained their staging process. It took 2 months to complete the improvements and Cathy and Tomas worked with us every step of the way. Tomas staged the house beautifully as promised and Cathy prepared a first rate marketing plan. Our house sold in less than 7 days very close to our asking price. Post contact signing Cathy's attention to detail contributed to a smooth transition all the way through closing. Bottom line; I'd hire this team again... in a heart beat

She was great at helping us through the sale of my first home. We were in california so it was a bit tricky because I was also pregnant with my first child. She helped get it ready to put on the market, staged the photo shoot and even suggested improvements for the home so we could get the most for the home. She was fantastic. If we ever moved back to the area I would call her to help us find a new home. She also helped us previously rent it when we weren't ready to sell it. She found us tenants that took care of my home. They rented it for two years and were always on time.
Cathy was great to work with. She's an experienced professional who understands buyers, and what they're looking for. She uses her knowledge to advise clients like me on how to spruce up my house, focusing on the things that really matter, and steering me away from things that don't. Her attention to detail is excellent, and her team was communicative and easy to work with. Ultimately, Cathy's work generated a lot of traffic to see my house, and within a very short time, it sold for a price over asking. With results like that, I can say nothing but good things about Cathy's work. Those are the kind of results that every seller hopes for when selecting a realtor.
Cathy was absolutely fantastic for us. Like with most sales in the area, we had to put together a bid package very quickly, and then we had 30 days to close. She understood what the sellers wanted and used that knowledge to structure our offer and present terms in order to ensure that we got the home without getting into a bidding war or going beyond a bottom line number that we were happy with. Cathy was always there to answer our questions and help us through the process, and as a first-time home buyer, I found her expertise to be invaluable.
Cathy and her team were excellent and we would highly recommend her. Cathy was extremely responsive and aggressive in marketing and selling our home. We also found her network of contacts (mortgage company, title company, home inspector) extremely helpful throughout the process. We were selling and buying and Cathy made the process very smooth despite a number of last minute unpredictable changes. We would definitely hire Cathy again for our future real estate needs.
As first time homebuyers, Cathy was great in helping us understand the process, the local market, and they type of house we wanted. She took us out for several weekends to look at a variety of homes, providing valuable insights on the properties, neighborhoods, and considerations. Over time, we figured out that we preferred a more "move-in ready" town home, as opposed to a fixer-upper detached house or a condo. Cathy and her team's expertise was super helpful in walking us through the homebuying process at our own pace. We eventually found a great place, put in an offer, and closed without any issues. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell in the DC area.

Cathy is a consummate professional. Her attention to details and the willingness to go that extra mile for her clients truly sets her apart. She recently helped us sell our house and purchase a new one and we could not have been happier with the service we have received. Her execution is pitch perfect. We never second guessed her and followed her advice in letter and spirit - the results have been fabulous! She sold our house in the dead of the winter in under 3 days.
We had seen Cathy Poungmalai and her team's work in our neighborhood so we knew they would provide expertise and enthusiasm in selling our house. They have a good plan from beginning to end. From using a professional photographer, multi-media, and staging it was all top end. We received a full-price offer within a week of listing. We have no reservations in recommending Cathy and her team.
Falls Church, VA
We used Cathy for the sale of our condo. We had originally listed our condo with another realtor. After 3 months and several close leads, we needed to make a change to our approach and decided to work with Cathy after hearing great things from other former clients. Cathy was extremely knowledgeable and immediately gave us recommendations on some additional changes to make to our unit in order to get it to sell faster. We made those changes, listed the unit on Friday, had an open house on Sunday, and received an offer on Monday. Cathy goes above and beyond to get her units sold, including beautiful marketing materials with professional photography, a video walking tour, a personal webpage for your property, and free staging. We feel confident that these things, along with the changes that we made to our unit per her advice, helped us to sell our condo so quickly. Cathy also has a team of assistants who also help everything in the process move along smoothly. We could not be more pleased with our experience and would recommend Cathy to anyone looking for the best realtor they can find!
I would highly recommend Cathy Poungmalai for a real estate transaction. She is a high energy agent, thorough, and follows through on matters in a polished professional way. Cathy took over our listing after another associate realtor went 94 days on the market with a failed marketing plan and unclear end-game. Following an initial photo and video shoot, the publication of brilliant brochures, uptown staging, and two cozy open houses, Cathy was able to secure an offer for us in only 14 days. This lady is well-connected, highly informed, and exploits 21st Century social media tools and ideas to satisfy clients.
