Mary Catherine Woodward
My husband and I decided last fall to return to Austin, from which we moved in 1989, to be nearer friends and family. Even though we visited several times a year since we left, Austin has grown so much that the real estate market was challenging for us. Mary Catherine was highly recommended to us, and we are so grateful we found her! She helped us find a house in central Austin (the Austin we remember!). Both Austin and the process for getting a mortgage have changed a lot since the last time we were in the market, and Mary Catherine was patient, helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant throughout the process. We are both lawyers and have lived in New York City, London, Hong Kong and Zurich. We were demanding clients and found in Mary Catherine qualities that suited us perfectly – she is diligent, problem-solving, strategic and unflappable.

Purchasing a home in Austin is tricky, there is so much demand and so little inventory, that moving quickly and aggressively is a must. Mary Catherine knows the Austin market extremely well and is on top of her game. We purchased a home in Central Austin in January of 2018 in a neighborhood where most houses on the market end in bidding wars. Not only was Mary Catherine able to get our offer accepted at lightning speed, she was even able to negotiate a below ask price (which is almost unheard of in Austin). I plan to use her as my realtor for any future real estate transactions and I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in Austin.

We knew that when we decided to put our Pemberton Heights home on the market that we needed a realtor and brokerage that complemented the elegance and excellence of the historical neighborhood. Mary Catherine was the perfect match and gracefully lead every facet of the sale with meticulous and thoughtful attention to detail, and was able to secure multiple offers and sell our home before putting it on the market. If you are looking for a seamless transaction from initial meeting to post closure, then look no further than Mary Catherine Woodward.

We chose Mary Catherine Woodward to sell our home in Austin. We had built and lived in our Westlake house for 25 years. Getting it ready to list and sell proved quite emotional! Catherine was mindful, thoughtful and very thorough throughout the entire process. She was professional at every step, giving attention to every detail. Our beautiful home sold at our asking price the day it went on the market. Her personal contacts, along with her affiliation with Sotheby's helped sell our house so quickly! Catherine's professionalism and her genuine concern and care for her clients are evident. She is an outstanding agent.

My husband and I recently closed on our first home with Mary Catherine. She made the process of a first time home purchase completely seamless. She remained heavily involved from initial contact, until closing day and her organization and guidance played a crucial role in our successful purchase. As we were moving from Houston and had limited time in Austin, Mary Catherine was willing to meet with us anytime we called and was efficient when maximizing the short amount of time we had when visiting. Her commitment to finding us the perfect house and adjusting to our wants and needs was beyond appreciated. It was clear that she really listened to us throughout the purchase. We were lucky to have her on our team and we could not recommend her enough.

Working with Mary Catherine was truly a wonderful and memorable experience. In the highly competitive market in Austin, we needed someone who was always available to show us a home and really listened to what we were looking for. The best part of the experience is she got to know us and our style. My wife and I were very picky and she was very patient with us, and we found the perfect home in Cherrywood thanks to her commitment. The house we ended up with was only on the market for one day and she turned around an offer in less than 24 hours! I would highly recommend anyone work with Mary Catherine if they are serious about finding their dream home.
