What is the Value of a Certified New Home Specialist?

Building a New Home

There are a myriad of steps in the process of a new home project that even an experienced Realtor may not know about unless they have sold for a builder in the past.  Going into a build project without a professional on your side of the table is like going in blind, not knowing what to expect or to know what is normal and what is not normal.

Cathy Chapman with Signature Home Sales grew up in the building business and started in new home sales when she entered into the real estate industry.  She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise she will share with clients to protect their best financial interests and to set expectations from the start so that the client understands what is going on every step of the way.

Education, guidance, negotiations, mediation.... all are a part of a build process.  You are wise to have a strong partner on your side.

I would like to express my pleasure and gratitude in working with Cathy, she was absolutely amazing to work with in my new home buying process!  From our very first conversation, I felt comfortable that I made the right choice in having Cathy represent me as my agent. She is very responsive- quick to return email and phone calls and super fast at answering any questions. Due to her tremendous market knowledge and experience, she was able to quickly narrow down and present options options based on my criteria.   Once I decided on the home that I wanted, Cathy showed so much savvy in dealing with the sellers agent. She was strategic in her approach to get the best deal for me, negotiating so many "extras" that I would have NEVER gotten on my own...I am remarkably impressed with what she was able to negotiate for me!  Cathy showed tremendous patience overall as she guided me thorough the entire buying process, which can be overwhelming for sure. She certainly held it together for me!  I highly recommend Cathy to anyone who needs an agent. She made every step of the way a pleasure, and exceeded every expectation that I had! Thank you Cathy for all your hard work, I'm truly grateful for the exceptional service you provided. I absolutely love my new home and couldn't be happier!!  --Husna S.

9 years later - "This was my 2nd transaction/experience working with Cathy. I’m a repeat client due to her trust and care in looking out for my best interest at all times. Cathy skill fully negotiated many things for me in the sale of my house, resulting in a significant and impressive bottom line payout for me. Cathy is a pleasure to work with, I will continue to work with her in the future and will recommend her to my family and friends." --Husna S.

"Cathy Chapman is a pleasure to work with and did a great job at getting everything we asked for in a NEW home. She assisted my fiance and I at buying our first home together directly from a builder who threw us a few curve balls. Cathy was a strong negotiator who got us exactly what we wanted and we could not be happier with her performance. She proceeds to go above and beyond for her client's needs. Her diligence certainly paid off for our dream home. Thank you again, Cathy!" --Tricia & Brian J.

"This is the seventh time we've worked with Cathy - and we have yet to regret it! Her attentiveness to her clients is second to none and she does anything she can to protect their interests. We'll absolutely be using her again and would recommend her highly to anyone!"  Hernan & Amy D.

"I am highly satisfied with the services provided by Cathy Chapman. I was a new home buyer and she was there with us all the way, working with us to negotiate price with the builder/ seller, making sure that the house is completed on time, checking progress of construction and then making herself available for everything related to closing. I found her support really valuable in this process. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house. I can confidently say she will dedicate herself to your business and be with you all the way." -- Santhosh T.
