    My Client Testimonials

    Cathy Anderson knew what was needed and handled it professionally. Would highly recommend! She met all my homebuying needs. I was happy throughout the entire process. ~ Sean Mullen, quincy
    Cathy Anderson made everything about the home selling process easy for me. My house sold quickly because of her knowledge and expertise about the real estate market. She was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process - everything from staging a home, to recommending the right sales price, to answering specific questions I had. I recommend Cathy Anderson to anyone in the Quincy area who wants to work with a realtor who consistently goes above and beyond! ~ Tyler Wheeler, Quincy
    Especially from not being from the area, working with Cathy was extremely smooth and easy. Her connections for inspections, lenders, and house repair people really set me in the right direction for considering buying a house to gauge more or less how much extra work would be put in the house. She never made me feel pressured to go with a specific house and always asked how I felt about the house before giving her opinions on it. She really cared about making sure I found the right house for me, which was a total of a 3-5 month process from start to finish. She was very patient with me which I greatly appreciated! ~ David Ortega, Quincy IL
    Cathy Anderson was a pleasure to work with when we moved to Quincy, so we knew that we would chose her when we decided to sell our home. She was great, listened to our concerns, and recommended a great staging person to elevate our home. Thanks Cathy! ~ Chris Arter Gulf Breeze, Florida
    Cathy Anderson was honest and hardworking. She was very organized and focused. Stayed in contact with me during the whole process. She answered any questions that came up and made the whole process easy and stress free. ~ Bryan Lamborn Quincy
    Cathy was a great partner in this sale. It was quite challenging at times due to conditions outside of our control. She remained professional and determined to see it through to a successful conclusion. I would recommend Cathy to anyone in the area who is looking for a home or selling a home. Thank you! ~ Jena Schulz
    Cathy is wonderful to work with. She is highly knowledgeable and responsive to communication. Couldn't ask for a better realtor. ~ J. Matthew Ward, Quincy, IL
    Cathy was the listing agent on the home we bought 4 years ago. We met her at an open house for that property. She showed us 15-20 different properties during that time before we decided on the first one, and she was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. When we decided to buy our second home, Cathy was the natural choice and knocked it out of the park again for us. Same for the sale of our first home. This was our first time as sellers, and Cathy guided us through the process and we accepted an offer on our house within 36 hours of the initial listing. Cathy will be our choice of realtor in Quincy for as long as she's available. ~ Jon Shumaker - Quincy, IL
    Cathy was absolutely incredible to work with. She went above and beyond to help us find our new home, and made sure that we found a safe place for our family.

    very good ~ eddie woodworth
    We originally met Cathy in the Spring of 2017 by attending an open house for our first home. Cathy was the listing agent and was patient as we went through showings of at least 20 homes before coming back to the one where we met her. She was friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience as easy as possible. Choosing Cathy to be our agent for the purchase of our second home was a no-brainer and she made this one even easier than the first. We would highly recommend Cathy for anyone looking to buy or sell in the Quincy area. ~ The Shumakers, Quincy
    Cathy is friendly and communication is excellent! ~ Janice Kirgan

    We worked with Cathy Anderson in the past and know how hard she works for her clients. Her knowledge of the local market is second to none.

We highly recommend Cathy for any home buying or selling needs. ~ Mitch and Lili Coval, Quincy, IL

    Cathy Anderson was professional all the way through this transaction. She went beyond expectations, calling for info when needed from other sources. Everything went smoothly, she had my back the whole way. The best realtor I've ever worked with! Kind, non-judgmental, funny, and very honest. Very honest! ~ Doreen Hart Quincy, IL
    Cathy Anderson went above and beyond to help us. She listened and found us exactly what we wanted. My husband got sick through this journey and she became a confidant with what we were going through. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Not only as an agent, but as a friend. We couldn't have asked for anyone more suited for us. ~ David & Carol Dolbeare
    Cathy Anderson navigated us thru the details very smoothly and was always prompt with her feedback My wife and I talked together about it being a good experience because of her ~ Gene and Ann Soebbing, Quincy il.
    She was not only respectful of us as buyers, but she was considerate to the owners of the property she showed us. Always shut doors and turned off lights. Very professional!! ~ Terri Stutheit, Quincy, IL
    From our first conversation, Cathy listened carefully and understood the type of house I was looking for. As we visited homes, she quickly honed in on the precise details that were appealing to me and those that I found bothersome. Once I found "my" home, she was very helpful throughout the rest of the process. I strongly recommend Cathy Anderson for anyone looking to buy a home. ~ Liane Hetherington-Ward, Quincy, Illinois
    My husband and I were First Time Homebuyers and Cathy Anderson was the perfect choice for our first experience! Cathy put all of our nerves at ease every single step of the way! She was extremely professional, timely and an excellent communicator. I would recommend Cathy to anyone who is buying a home. Whenever we decide to move or buy another property we will be calling Cathy! She was the absolute best!! ~ Genevieve Bayer, Quincy IL
    Cathy Anderson was effective in all aspects of the sales effort visible to us, i.e., advertising/publicity, seller relations, business acumen, personal demeanor, interagency relations, etc. Although there were more days of effort expended than the four days of product visibility to the buying public, Cathy's coordination of that pre-public visibility effort and the CENTURY 21 Broughton team's able support are assumed to have been equally stellar, the positive end results speaking loads in this regard; the fact of there having been three good offers and an accepted offer within four days. Cathy communicates with a pleasant, pleasing personality and possesses a superior real estate knowledge base that serves her well in the real estate sales arena. We recommend her highly! ~ Rex & Julie Sandidge; Quincy, Illinois
    Cathy Anderson was always on top of letting me know what was going on, what was needed from me and was amazing with communication. ~ Amanda Feeney - Quincy, IL
    Cathy was great to work with!!!! Her communication was top notch .... anytime I had a question she responded right away. Very professional!!! ~ Amanda Feeney, Quincy, IL
    Cathy made a stressful situation of having to relocate in a short time period so easy. She was very helpful with everything and very polite. My wife and I can't thank her enough. We would absolutely use her services again. ~ Chris Arter, Quincy IL
    Cathy was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, and worked well with our quick timeline to find a house that would fit out families needs. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in the Quincy area. ~ Megan H.
    My husband and I purchased our second home. We just moved to the area and have USAA, who provided us a realtor. Cathy was a great fit for us! We were under contract less than 24 hours after meeting her. Everything from putting in our offer to the closing went very smooth. Cathy was very professional and I would definitely recommend her! ~ Brittany Smith
    Cathy was wonderful when it came to finding homes that fit what I described to her. Cathy kept in touch with me through the whole process. She was very kind, patient, and always made me feel important. Buying a house was a great experience for me, because of Cathy Anderson. If I ever need a realtor again, Cathy will be my first choice. She handles business in a timely fashion, always keeps her clients updated, and strives on making sure you are happy and get exactly what you want. I'm so happy to have a new home, but I will miss working with Cathy! She had more faith in me than I had in myself. I'm very grateful to have met/worked with Cathy! ~ Rachel Crose, Quincy
    By choosing Cathy Anderson and the Century 21 Broughton Team, the sale of my home at 1001 Klondike was incredibly easy for me. Bobette Cawthon, Kassidy Allen, and Cathy Anderson went to work for me. My home sold the same day it was listed - for my full asking price! What more could a seller ask for? The entire process was smooth and concise. Century 21 Broughton Team is made of true professionals! ~ David Goodwin, Quincy IL

    Life is busy, but with Cathy Aleman Anderson as our relator, buying and selling a home was effortless. Cathy was a phone call away and I always felt comfortable and at ease when contacting her for suggestions and/or advice on what to do in this process. She kept us updated on everything and was punctual in all her communications. Cathy made this the best home purchasing experience we have had! ~ Ron and Niki St. Hill, Quincy Il
    Cathy did a great job for us. We had originally listed with another realtor and was unsatisfied with the level of marketing and communications. Cathy came in and did a terrific job marketing the house and keeping us updated regularly. We are very satisfied and would recommend her to others in the Quincy area. Cathy Anderson was a pleasure to work with. We wish we had hired her 1st! ~ David and Eileen Salen
    Cathy was readily available to answer any questions we had, show us properties sometimes at a moment's notice due to our difficult schedule and she was always prompt. She made us aware of properties that might be of interest to us & was forthright in making observations about properties that we might not have been aware of. She has a very nice way of working with people so they feel they can trust her to help them find the right home for them & they do not feel pushed - something a lot of other salespeople do not understand well. Cathy's people skills and her nice personality make her easy to work with and she is someone you can feel comfortable doing business. We would be very happy to work with her again. ~ Dana Shanholtzer, Springfield, IL

    Cathy Aleman really knew the Quincy area. This was critical since we were moving from the Chicago metro area and knew nothing about the Quincy housing market. She was wonderful!! We could not have had a more knowledgeable and patient realtor. She is a true asset to your company. She communicated well with us and the buyer, even when the closing on our house in the Chicago area got delayed and complicated. She was in a dual relationship with us and the seller. When there were complications, she re-did the paperwork numerous times as aspects of the situation changed. She was very patient with us, and negotiated well with the sellers who were out of town. She always answered our questions, and if she did not know, she got answers from those who did. She recommended a lender, and we were very happy with the terms of our mortgage. She was a great spokesman for Quincy, and made us feel very welcome! ~ Marysue Mastey, Quincy, IL
    I interviewed two other brokers; thank goodness I chose Cathy Aleman! Cathy went above and beyond in recommending and coordinating services I needed since I have never lived in the area and was selling the house as the executor of an estate. The whole process was as quick and efficient as it possibly could have been, which was really important to me. She obviously did a great job in pricing the house since it sold very close to asking price. I feel her services were a very good value and it was a pleasure working with her! ~ Kathryn Godley, Altamont NY
    I could not be any happier with the service of Cathy Aleman and Century 21 Broughton Team. Cathy was very professional and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond in communication to me and friendliness to my family as well as showing us multiple properties in a very timely manner.

    Parthenia (Parky) Gordon IT Computer Support Specialist I was extremely pleased with Cathy Aleman when we were looking for a house. I know that I probably was her worse case with determining the right home for us. Yet Cathy took every effort in working with us. She knew how to please us with the home of our dreams. I definitely would recommend Cathy when finding a home. Cathy was there for us even after buying the home to make sure we didn't have any problems and were pleased with everything. I give Cathy 5 stars. August 7, 2015, Parthenia (Parky) was Cathy's client
