My wife and I recently moved from a house we had been renting for the last 3 years in Pleasant Hill to a new home in the Heritage Oaks community in Pleasant Hill on the Martinez border. Colleen Hendrickson and Cait Hudson were the brokers representing my wife and me (ask Colleen or Cait how we met; good story!) and I cannot tell you enough good things about them. My wife and I have bought/sold 4 homes since we moved in together (before we got married; living in sin!) in 1984 and Colleen and Cait was by far the best brokers we've ever had including the very good one that was referred to us by my wife's dad who was a Regional VP for another real estate brokerage firm when he was alive. Their attention to detail, their understanding of what our desires and needs were in a new house, their compassion and customer service were amazing. They work seamlessly as a team; if one's not available, the other one is. It made this transaction (which went down very quickly because the sellers were looking for a fast close) very smooth and the easiest home purchase/sale we've ever been involved with. They both were truly advocates for us, their clients, and that showed in every inspection they suggested/insisted we get and every dealing with any 3rd party such as inspectors, mortgage broker (ours!), title company, etc. We would both highly recommend Colleen and Cait to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are truly an asset to Alain Pinel Realtors and to your office there in Walnut Creek.
Cait is an exceptional real estate agent! We were immediately impressed with her when we started working together. She is organized, knowledgeable, and readily available to answer questions and make recommendations. Cait made the home buying process, which can be a scary and daunting, really fun experience for us. Every time we looked at a property she did all of the homework for us, providing disclosures and pulling comparable homes, so we knew exactly what we're looking at going in. It really enhanced the entire process. We gave her a pretty quick time table and our budget and she helped us find and secure our dream home in just about 45 days. In this fast-moving bay area real estate market, she is exactly the kind of agent you want to be working with. She really knows the east bay area market and could tell us right away if a property was listed too high or how much it might really sell for, it was such a huge help in managing our home search. Her guidance and advice were appreciated every step of the way. She is always looking out for her client's best interest and helped us negotiate on our final closing costs, even though we were buying as-is. As first time home buyers, we could not have had a better experience!
As you can probably tell from all of the stellar 5-star ratings on this page, Cait is truly exceptional. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Cait as our buyers' agent on the purchase of our new home, and we couldn't be happier with how she coordinated the entire process from start to finish. She's smart as a whip, incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate industry, and a great communicator. We really felt taken care of every step of the way. When we had a question, she was quick to respond, and she went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable with the process. Buying a home can be stressful at times, and Cait has a way of working through the stickiest of situations with a calm demeanor and a positive attitude that's incredibly reassuring. We honestly can't imagine what home buying would have been like without Cait on our team, and although we don't plan to move from our dream home anytime soon, she would be the first person we'd call if we ever decided to move again. We will recommend her to everyone we know without reservation. Thanks, Cait!
I can only give a glowing recommendation for Cait. she made a year-long house hunting journey quickly come to an end once I joined forces with her! It took only two months and two offers to find my perfect starter home. Once I found the house I wanted (even better than the one I put the first offer on), I was outbid by another couple and my hopes were crushed. She had candid conversations with the listing agent, suggested other terms within the contract, and personal touches, to make my offer more competitive. The seller ended up picking my offer (even though it was lower!) all because of Cait: her reputation, her candor, her work ethic, and of course, her ability to negotiate an effective contract. She will get you what you want, she will take calculated risks, but she will never let you settle for less! Did I also mention the team she partners with are the best in the Bay (lending, inspections, title company, etc.)! She went above and beyond to represent me and I had the smoothest transaction I could have ever asked for. I owe it all to Cait Hudson!
After a handful of rejections with a previous agent, a friend recommended Cait and Colleen to my husband and I. We were losing hope in buying our first home, but our luck changed after working with these two lovely ladies! The first house we put an offer in with them was selected and we couldn't be more happy with the whole process from the moment we met them to the moment we closed. They are the best tag-team realtors and have always responded quickly, or had contingency plans ready when they had not-so-good news to share with us. The universe brought us to this duo at the perfect time to help us get our home. They were also not hesitant to help guide us along the way and share their wealth of knowledge. I especially appreciated the attention to detail they provided, which gave us a level of comfort that helped alleviate the stress associated with buying a house. We definitely will recommend them to friends and also keep them in mind for the future! Thank you, ladies!
It was a real pleasure to work with Cait as we bought our new home. She is energetic, a great communicator and amazingly responsive! Cait was a source of calm reassurance as she navigated us through a market that strongly favored sellers, and helped us put our best foot forward. We were especially anxious due to the simultaneous sale of our old home, and she worked tirelessly to gather information and network with other agents to ensure we stayed out of a jam. When our first deal unexpectedly fell apart (not due to Cait's lack of trying) she redoubled her efforts. In the end, we successfully found a new and even better house for our needs, thanks to her strategic persistence and quick action. We couldn't be happier. You are in good hands with Cait as your agent. It's a tough market for buyers, but if she's in your corner, you will have a tremendous advantage.
Cait is such a fantastic real estate agent! My husband and I had a bad experience when we bought our first house. I explained our issues from before and since then, she made sure that we understood everything, were comfortable and answered any question, no matter how silly they were. She is incredibly hard working. I know for a fact that she worked up an offer for us while she was in Hawaii! Her attention to detail, exceptional communication and organization are impeccable. She's not even too proud to go to her amazing colleagues at Alain Pinel if she has any questions or needs guidance in something. She made the process of buying our house so easy. She set up all our appointments for us and made sure it worked with our schedules. I would and will recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house in our area. Thanks so much again Cait!
Cait was an excellent agent who responded promptly to any and all of our questions and concerns in looking for a house in the Walnut Creek area. She is very knowledgeable with Walnut Creek area real estate and we always knew that she was fully representing us with our real estate needs. She helped us to get our offer accepted and we have just completed close of escrow and are moving into our new house! We love the area and our new home. We both highly recommend Cait for any and all of your real estate needs, and don't let her youth fool you, she is a very experienced and savvy real estate agent who truly cares about her clients. You can't good wrong if you choose Cait.
Thanks to her, we were able to find, negotiate and close out a good deal on our beautiful home. The whole process went smoothly because of her attention to every single detail and her knowledge of the necessary steps to make it happen. Cait is very professional, knows the housing market very well and always responds to every question, phone call or email right away. She is always available or makes herself available to her client's requests. We consider her a great realtor and have become a good friend of our family as well. I highly recommend her to many other people in this business. Trust me when I say she is the right person to go to.
Cait Hudson is tremendous, I would give her 100 stars! I can't say enough great things about Cait, from the time we met her until the very end of purchasing our dream home she stayed in contact and walked us through the process. She has great energy and compassion. Cait knew what it would take to get us our dream house. She was confident that we would end up purchasing the home and had a great relationship with the seller's agent. Cait is knowledgeable and determined. This was the smoothest home buying experience I have ever had, from start to finish. I would highly recommend Cait and I would most certainly be a returning client.
My goodness is Cait patient! She went on the house hunting journey with us for close to a year. During that journey she was amazing, always looking for the right fit and many times we were very close. She never pressured us into something that wasn't right and always greeted us with a smile and a positive attitude on landing the right house soon. She was so amazing that she helped us purchase our house while we were traveling! You can be sure I have referred her to all our friends looking for homes, and we look forward to working with her again on our future real estate needs.
We met Cait at an open house in Lafayette, California. Even though we weren't working with her at the time, she asked us very candid questions and made a sincere attempt to know our requirements, interest, and investment. She knew we were not in a rush to buy, and that our area of interest was really large, yet she made a commitment to help us. At no point did she push us one way or the other; and showed great patience. It was great working with Cait, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a house.
We sold a home and bought another and couldn't be happier working with Cait on both transactions! Our home listed on Friday and sold on Tuesday with multiple offers! The sale transaction was great and we closed in 30 days. Cait was at every inspection and helped us every step of the way. The buy transaction went just as smoothly. Our lender and Cait worked extremely well together to make sure we closed in 14 days! In this market, you cant afford mediocrely. you really need the best. Cait is the very best knowledgeable, professional and a great negotiator.
After a long and bumpy journey to find our new home, we were finally able to make it happen after being referred to Cait. Such a great experience-she was knowledgeable, accessible (even at midnight when we were trying to get our offer in, thanks Cait!), and easy to work with. She was there for every step (inspections, more inspections, signing) and really made the entire process more enjoyable. Most importantly, she was able to get us into our new home within 3 weeks! I highly recommend Cait and hope to work with her again in the future.
Cait helped my parents sell my childhood home in Walnut Creek that they purchased in the early '90s. It was a really difficult thing for my family to do since we were so connected, and in love with our home. Cait walked us through the process and made it easy to understand, kept us updated, and was always available to lend an ear if we needed it. Cait is very professional, timely, and friendly. I would highly recommend Cait to anyone I know who is in the process of buying or selling a home.
Cait is such a fantastic agent! Not only is she extremely kind, but her passion for real estate is through the roof. She will go above and beyond to make sure all of your wants and needs are met to the highest of expectations. Her contagious energy and knowledge of the market are truly impressive. Trust me, you will not be disappointed in using Cait for your real estate needs!
Cait was amazing, without a doubt 5 stars! We are first time home buyers and had a great experience working with Cait. She was so detail-oriented and helped us through every step of the way. Cait came to every inspection and would give us a detail report after. If you need a realtor to choose Cait.
I loved working with Colleen and Cait! They did a fantastic job bringing in investors to look at the property and found us a fantastic buyer. We had a very complicated sale and they were fantastic at working through all the charges and details!
