We had a fantastic experience with Cathy! She went above and beyond for us. We shopped for a house and put in an offer during one whirlwind weekend, and then Cathy shepherded us through the remainder of the process after we returned to our previous home out of state. We got the home we wanted within our budget and had a great time doing it. Highly recommended!


My wife and I decided that it was time to purchase a home together. We decided on a VA Loan, found the company and got the process in motion. I was assigned a realtor at first but found that he was not eager to get the process moving. Everything was last minute and it was obvious to us that he was not prepared to show us our dream home, due to his other clients.

My wife was receiving information from Cathy Sarmento via email that was very helpful in answering VA questions. My wife and I decided that it was time to fire our original realtor and find one that wanted to help us. We asked Cathy if she could meet our needs and was upfront from the beginning. She outlined all the things that she could do for us and for the few things that she couldn’t handle; she identified members of her team who specialized in those areas, such as certain far away locations that she did not deal with on a regular basis. She was upfront with us the entire time. The lines of communication remained open and if I had a complicated question, she answered the question or got an answer in short order.

Coming out of the economic down turn, I was very fearful that I would have a realtor that was simply trying to sell another house at the best price possible. That was not Cathy’s way and she made it known right away. I expressed my fears and she explained to me, step by step, what was happening and why. She bent over backward to keep the process moving and ensure that everything was on the up and up.

I would recommend Cathy to anyone looking for a home. She is knowledgeable, caring and very understanding. She takes the time before, during and after each showing to ensure that your experience with her was worth every minute.

She found us our dream home and we are completely happy.


Cathy is extremely responsive, commicative, and knowledgable. Our family has done realestate invbestimate for three generations, and she is by far one of the best realtors that I’ve EVER encountered. HIGHLY reccommend.


Cathy has been an agent for my entire family and has provided guidance for us through 8 purchase and sales transactions and is currently assisting my family on our 9th transaction.


I knew Cathy through a non related work experience. When my business partner and I decided to look for property in the area, we decided to give Cathy a try as I was impressed with her enthusiasm and excellent follow through on other business. This ended up being the best decision I could have ever made; Cathy was not only a go getter and moved quickly on the property we were considering but she did extra research and was so honest with the information that she lost out on a sale in order to give us the information that avoided us from losing a lot of money with a business that would not have made it due to local regulations we did not know about. I have always appreciated her character with regard to this situation and she would be the first one I would call if I ever needed a realtor! Thanks Cathy!


We originally engaged Cathy Sarmento to help us purchase a house in Auburn, CA in 2001. What impressed us was Cathy’s ability and willingness to listen to our needs and wants in a home. She processed our information, and came up with list of homes to match our specific interests. Cathy subsequently helped us buy two more homes in Auburn (in 2007 and 2010). She also helped us sell our first Auburn home, and assisted us in renting the second house. Cathy is “our” Realtor.


Cathy has successfully sold two houses for us. One had been listed by another company for over a year with no bites. Cathy was able to sell the place, at a good price, within 3-5 months. She also helped us when we purchased our present home.

Our daughter is currently having Cathy look for a property for them as they wish to relocate from S. Cal. to our area and is confident Cathy will diligently search until they find what they like.


Cathy worked with me to sell my house in Newcastle, CA., in 2008, at a time when the real estate market was fast falling apart. She made it possible to sell my house, and it was a joy and a pleasure to work with her. She is the opitomy of professionalism, is extremely knowledgeble about the market, and how to navigate it. I would recommend Cathy to any person trying to buy or sell their property, without reservation.


I have worked with Cathy Sarmento over the years with numerous realestate issues and she has always been professional, patient, knowledgable and always available.

When my mother died, I had a complicated transaction (residential home multipleTrust sale) and after interviewing three realtors, Cathy proved to be the most qualified. Additional documentation, justification and approval of Attorney, Accountant, Multiple Beneficiaries, Tax boards and myself as executor was required.

Cathy handled the transaction with grace, attention to detail and amazing expertise.

To coin a well known phrase with a bit of alteration: “You’re in good hands with Cathy Sarmento”.


very patient. very professional. very knowledgeable in a wide variety of real estate related issues.


Cathy was very adaptive. The homes we were looking at were all foreclosures and she had to deal w/ the banks instead of other realtors (and this was back in 2008, when the housing market had recently crashed). She was able to change her ways in order to deal with the change in the housing market.


Cathy has always been there for us whenever we needed her. She has a remarkably in-depth knowledge of the area and is a pleasure to work with. She doesn’t push us to buy, instead giving insightful advice quietly and thoughtful. Above all, she remains positive about finding the right home for us.


Excellent agent, impressive local knowledge. I am very happy with her service.


We spent over a year looking at property with Kathy.

She was very patient with us and truly honest when asked tough questions.


Cathy was the perfect agent, she understood what i was looking for and went the extra mile to find it, preview it and provide knowledge prior to me viewing the homes. She is a definite resource that should be utilized whenever possible.


As first-time homeowners, we worked with Cathy Sarmento on both the purchase and sale of our home. She was a real pleasure to work with and everything went smoothly under her watchful eyes. She walked us through the process of purchasing and selling a home step by step, providing recommendations for handy men and various inspections along the way. With Cathy’s help and expertise, we had two offers on our home within two days of putting it on the market. Cathy went above and beyond the call of duty in several situations to help our transactions (purchase and later sale) flow smoothly. When the buyer of our home ran into a snag late in the purchase process, Cathy worked hard negotiating with the buyers and their agent, even to the point of putting herself at a disadvantage, in order to help the transaction go through as smoothly and timely as possible. We would whole-heartedly recommend Cathy Sarmento to anyone involved with a real estate transaction in Placer and El Dorado County.


Cathy helped me sell my parents home that was in our family trust. This can be difficult process for a number of reasons other than the obvious emotional and sentimental factors.

I can say with 100% honesty that working with Cathy was a dream !! She was very knowledgeable and her work ethic is over and above all I have ever experienced. My parents home was the 5th home I have sold. The home sold within one week at the full asking price and escrow went on with out a hitch.

I will always look to her for my real estate needs and she will be the first person I recommend when asked.


I have known Cathy for years and she is a great person and Realtor. I would recommend he to any one I know and she always give it he all to make sure he service the best there is.


Cathy is very knowledgeable and came highly recommended. She was very supportive and informative long after the closing. I intend to keep in touch with her. This was a short sale, so there wasn’t negotiation.


Cathy was very calming for me. I’d be in a rush or hyped up and she’d get me to relax and focus on the house we were looking at or whatever the need. She was very good at asking me questions to get a good understanding of what I like, didn’t like, would change, etc. The houses she recommended were right in the ballpark for my likes and wants. I appreciated it so no wasted time on houses that were way off my idea.


Cathy is a true Pro. She not only was able to find us a home even beyond our dreams. But was able to keep the buying and selling process moving ahead even when complications arose.

I would recommend Cathy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks Cathy.


Cathy kept me up to date on everything that was happening with my property. She knew the area very well. Made suggestions, but left it up to me in what to do. No pressure involved which I liked. Very friendly also and a pleasure to work with.


I highly recommend Cathy and would absolutely utilize her expertise in the future if I need her. She knows the area and is able to utilize her networking connections to help smooth any potential rough patches. Looking forward to moving to our beautiful new property. Thank you, Cathy!


We’ve bought property before, but never through Cathy Sarmento. This was the first time that we worked with her, and was by far the best experience we have had working with a realtor. She was always available to answer our questions, worked long hours searching out properties to show us, and had endless patience – even when we changed our search location a few times! Cathy is very experienced, and it showed in all aspects of our dealings. She understood our needs, listened to our concerns, and spent a lot of time setting up many visits to houses. When we found the perfect place, she even organized repairs that were recommended by the house inspector, and did the walk through on our behalf (we were on a business trip). Cathy made the whole process stress free (how rare is that!), and we had complete faith in her advice and knowledge. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. They will be very fortunate to have her working for them. Thank you Cathy!
