"To Whom It May Concern:

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for John as both a friend and a satisfied client. John has successfully helped us with the sale of both commercial property and 2 residential properties. And, with his referral of another qualified agent, we sold another house in Colorado Springs.

It has always been a real pleasure working with John over the years. As we all have come to realize, the sale and purchase of real estate is full of many variables and seemingly constant shifts. In such a market; it is invaluable to find honest candor, experiential wisdom and one in whom you can trust. With his many years of experience, John has remained relevant, reliable and realistic in knowing where the market is.

Simply put, John is one agent worth having on your side of the signing table. I have on may occasions, do often, and will continue to recommend John Cathey concerning all residential and commercial real estate needs."


"I have had business dealings with John for almost 20 years and have no higher respect for any realtor. I have done work for John on his properties that he sells and he always wants his properties in their very best condition I have also bought property from John and it was done quickly & professionally. I highly recommend him as a realtor,and I almost never recommend anyone." View on Zillow >>

"We've known John for years and he has helped us sell numerous properties. He has always been helpful and cognizant of our needs. He sold our primary residence in Colorado for a fair price and on a schedule so that we were able move to our Oregon coast retirement home ahead of schedule. John implemented several open house showings and was able to sell the our home in less than 3 weeks. He helped us sell a rental property for us several years ago that we were having trouble marketing." View on Zillow >>


"John contacted us a couple of years ago to see if we were interested in selling our rental in Ft. Collins. We weren't ready then but contacted him two years later when we thought the market had recovered enough to break even on our townhouse. It took John 24 hours to sell our townhouse (for much more than we thought possible) and he made it incredibly easy. He's very professional and experienced. The best agent in Ft. Collins!!"

"I was very happy with John Cathey. He helped me find my perfect first home. He is very honest, patient and helpful. This was my first time looking for a home and he made my experience very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wonderful realtor!!!" View on Zillow >>


"In a time when things are so unusually difficult - either selling or buying property - John Cathey is definitely one to have in your corner. We have used John several times in both buying and selling commercial and residential property since 2001. John's honesty and insistence on keeping relevant are priceless wells of information and advice to be trusted. He pulls no punches and candy-coats no deals (even when you may wish he would a little). I have, do, and will recommend John to anyone who is serious about anything to do with property sale or purchase." View on Zillow >>

"John Cathey was extremely helpful and through during our home selling/buying experience. He showed us well over 40 separate houses, some of which we looked at many times. He was diligent with keeping our family's best interests at heart. In addition to his experience and diligence, he was warm and inviting to not only my wife and I, but also our three young children. They looked forward to seeing him when they came along to look at houses with us. I would recommend his services to anyone I know that is in need of a REALTOR®."


"... Larry and I have been very satisfied with you during the home buying and home selling process. You've been very easy to talk to and very helpful. ... thanks for all you did for us. We appreciate it!"


"It was great being with you and I think you picked out just the right property for us. I think it's going to work out one way or another. I just wanted you to know how pleased we were with your service. You probably couldn't tell but we are very particular about who we work with. We have high expectations and feel justified to have them considering the compensation involved. We felt you were one of the best we have ever worked with. Blessings, Carl"


"By the time that John took over the listing on Trilby it was almost in foreclosure and no one was even interested in investing in the property. John took over the listing from one of the discount brokerages, worked extensively with our lender, the bank that held the loan and secured Buyers that were able to invest properly in the home. Unfortunate situation, but we ended up without anything out of pocket."


Jason and Nikki
"We really appreciate your time and excellent service."

"We've known John Cathey for 20+ years, and he's always provided us excellent service in selling, buying, and all-around flexibility and assistance on all our real estate needs." View on Zillow >>


"Not only did John Cathey give great service in the sale of our latest property but also in two others in past years. We appreciated his communication and willingness to deal with unexpected difficulties that tend to come up in the process of selling. He was always accessible and willing to go above and beyond to make the sale successful." View on Zillow >>


"Newly single, I moved to Ft. Collins to rebuild my life. Mr. Cathy was sensitive to my situation. What I appreciated most is that he didn't try to sell me anything! Instead he rolled up his sleeves prepared to go to any lengths to find the perfect house for me. He is upbeat, focused, organized and informed about real estate in Colorado. Once I found the house I wanted, he was assertive in negotiating the best possible deal for me. There was no doubt in my mind that he was protecting my interests. Since moving in, I love my house and life is good!" View on Zillow >>

"Just a short 'non-tech' note to thank you for all your help with the sale of our condo unit. We really appreciated all you did to make it less a hassle than it might have been. We have many pleasant memories from our years there, and you are included among them. Thank you."


Sonja Anderson
"Raised in Ft. Collins from the age of two, I never thought of coming back after college. A divorce and some thirty-five years later I returned to the town that I had so many fond memories of. After a year of renting, I knew I wanted to stay in Ft. Collins. John was recommended to me through a childhood friend.

I had talked to two other agents before I met with him. From the moment we shook hands I knew he was the one who would help me find the house I wanted to buy in the city. He heard my story and what I was looking for in a future in Ft. Collins.

After 3 months of searching in earnest, he found me the perfect place to settle. The wonderful thing about John is that he waited until the right place presented itself. There were times when I was ready to give up and buy something that I wouldn't have been happy with.

He wouldn't let me do that. Always positive, he helped me to believe, I'd find the home for me. There were times I felt guilty about him showing me another house, when I had turned down so many already. Every time I felt that way he assured me it was just of a matter of time before I found the home of my dreams. In August 2010, my dream came true!

The morning my house was listed John called me and said, "I think this is what you've been looking for." He was so right. As soon as I saw it, I put in an offer and the rest is history!

I love my home. It was worth the wait. Had it not been for John, I would have settled for something that didn't meet my needs. John was a god send during a difficult moving transition for me.

He is the agent that I will send all of my friends and associates to. When and if I sell my house, he will be the one who will list it. After hours of looking at houses, he knows and respects my life story. That is the kind of person I want on my side when buying a home."
