When it comes to buying or selling a home, experience matters - experience in the industry and experience in the community. Buying or selling a home can be very exciting but very stressful as well. And when you’re making the important decision as to who should represent you, there are certain criteria to consider: agent’s knowledge of area and industry; professionalism; accessibility and trustworthiness.
Cathy Tomlinson, founder and team leader of the Tomlinson Team, formerly with Prudential and now Berkshire Hathaway, knew the best way to serve clients was to have a team. The team consists of Donna Ripley, Donna Charitat, Rochelle Traub, Paul Houston and Veronica Luckow who each bring unique talents to the table. “Our knowledge of the area and our knowledge of the real estate market makes us one of the best-selling teams in the area. We are experts in working with buyers and sellers, and we treat each client transaction as if it were our own,” said Cathy. “We all live and work in the area and have children who have been through the public and private school system; therefore, we are able to help our clients with school choices.”
The Tomlinson team is part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices real estate franchise, which purchased Prudential Georgia Realty. “The Berkshire Hathaway name stands for integrity and unquestioned financial strength, which will enhance our services and Internet presence for our clients,” said Cathy. The Tomlinson Team is the number one real estate selling team in the Berkshire Hathaway Towne Lake office. The agents are experts in Cherokee, Cobb, Fulton, Bartow, Gilmer, Pickens and Floyd counties.
Cathy and her team have the clout, professionalism and work ethic to keep them at a consistently strong performance level, even during rough patches in the economy. Cathy was named as the REALTOR® of the Year in 2012 by the Cherokee Associations of REALTORS®, and she and Rochelle recently were featured on the radio show, Real Estate Atlanta. The team is always available to clients seven days a week, day or night. “It’s important to us to be honest, dependable and to always have the client’s best interest at heart. We are trying to bring back ‘nice’ to real estate. We strive to be courteous, professional and ethical and just plain nice to fellow agents and clients,” said Cathy.
