I was born in Colombia and immigrated to Montreal in 2004. As a new immigrant I have had the opportunity to live in different areas of the city and get to know the day-to-day in boroughs such as Ville-Marie, Le Plateau, Le Sud-Ouest, Westmount, Ville St-Laurent and Côte-des-Neiges. I have been a real estate broker for over 12 years, hold a Residential and Commercial Real Estate license, managed a team of over 10 brokers and I am currently a real estate training consultant. As a real estate agent I have sold over 150M worth of residential and commercial real estate. I am also a real estate investor myself. I have accompanied clients to buy and sell in almost any area of the Greater Montreal Area. What I can offer you: • Extensive knowledge of the Greater Montreal real estate market; • Time and dedication to achieve the best results in each transaction; • Strong negotiation skills; • Organization and determination; • High level of experienced leadership; • Great sense of detail and client service; • A rich and varied cultural, academic and professional background that allows me to understand and empathize with client’s needs; • A team of specialists to complement my services and guide you step by step whether you are buying, selling, renting or investing; • Honesty, loyalty and diligence; • I am fluent in English, French and Spanish Real Estate is not a job for me, it’s an absolute passion!

Catalina was the most outstanding agent in every way for my McGill student and I. Being from out of town we had no clue how to navigate Montreal and how to differentiate safe areas from unsafe areas and a secure building from a less secure building. Catalina was so patient with us and spent way more time with us than you can imagine showing us countless properties so that we would choose just the perfect one. And we were just trying to find a rental for our daughter, can you imagine if I had been buying a house from her?? She is so generous with her time, never makes you feel rushed and even after the transaction closed, I pestered her with so many questions and emails afterwards, and she always responded instantaneously and cheerfully. Hands-down Catalina is the best agent in the city. If you want someone who really listens, who really cares, is so responsive and extremely generous with her time, Catalina, is the agent for you. - Alicia B.
