Whether you are looking to buy or sell your home in any of the areas we serve, the Cathey Team has the knowledge and expertise to get the job done, quickly and efficiently. Our passion is to help you get more for your home and sell faster!
Our average days on market is less than that of our competitors. We never list our homes with cell phone photos, and when we send your home out to the thousands of buyers looking to purchase, it is done so with a professional, impressive look. The biggest sale of your life should be treated as such!
We sell our homes for over market value. You'll be marketed locally as well as with FOUR multiple listing services – as opposed to the average one – all to get you in front of more buyers and their agents, and get you more for your home!
As your agents, we are available to you virtually 24/7. We have area specific agents who are masters of their local market and a back-of-house administrative staff who offer 24/7 support to you and our agents.
We pride ourselves on our ability to make every customer feel like our only customer. We have always lived by "People Over Profit" and we make sure the process is seamless and FUN!
We attribute our success to putting people over profit, and by standing out amongst the thousands of other realtors in Central Florida. How do we do that?
With an average of 20 listings at once and just as many buyer clients – it is imperative that someone is here to answer your call, text or email whenever you need a response! We pride ourselves in our customer support, and don’t think of ourselves as “salespeople," but more like “matchmakers!” We do NOT take the responsibility of assisting you with one of the biggest purchases, sales or both lightly.
In terms of listings, we have a proven system that gets you the most for your home, averaging 98% of the asking price on our listings! When you’re buying your home, we have tools and tactics to negotiate your offer so you close with equity!
Stephanie’s first experience in Real Estate began when she was a teenager, working the phones at the front desk of a local RE/MAX Office on the weekends. Little did she know that while she was setting appointments and putting together listing packets, she would be preparing herself for her future career in the same field!
Her Mother and Stepfather worked together in commercial real estate, and her Uncle (who Stephanie sees more as a father than an Uncle) taught her the ropes of investment residential real estate! Stephanie worked for a top producing team in Orlando as an assistant and learned the back end of the real estate transaction, putting her in a better position to properly negotiate and represent her buyers and sellers when she did finally take the leap to full time real estate agent.
The same year she made that jump, Stephanie married her husband, Mike Cathey, a nationally ranked mortgage loan officer. Shortly after, Stephanie and Mike had two beautiful boys, Lennon, and Jagger, who are the light of their lives.
During this time, she obtained her Broker’s License, and closed over $25,000,000 in real estate volume year after year – quickly qualifying her for the RE/MAX Hall of Fame Award – all in less than 3 years.
Other awards include 2019 Volusia/Flagler Counties Top 40 Under 40, multi-year Platinum Club Award Winner, and 2018 WCR’s Humanitarian of the Year Award for founding and running Lennon’s Lunchbox, a local 501(c)3 aimed at refilling the past due lunch accounts of children – preventing them from the stigma of publicly having their lunch taken from their hands and replaced with an “alternative lunch”, as well as the worry of bullying or not knowing whether or not they will have the money to eat lunch.
During the 2020 pandemic, The Cathey Team has had its biggest year yet, and they know the best is yet to come. Stephanie prides herself on her “People Over Profit” mentality and has built a team who focuses every day on just that, taking care of people!
Nicole has always had a passion and desire to work in real estate! After moving from Pittsburgh, PA to sunny Florida, she joined up with Stephanie in 2017 to form The Cathey Team! Nicole, her husband, and their two cats currently reside in Volusia County where they enjoy lots of beach time and going to the nearby theme parks!
In Nicole’s first year as a full-time agent, she found herself in the top 5% of her fellow Realtors, an accomplishment that is not easily achieved by most seasoned agents. Additionally, being a member of so many Florida MLS boards, they often have sales and volume not reported to their home board – meaning she outperformed many agents ranked in the top 5% and even top 1% locally.
She works tirelessly and always puts client’s needs above any other. Having purchased her own home with her husband, she knows the importance of having someone trustworthy and hardworking by your side and prides herself on making the home buying or selling process a fun and stress-free experience!
Alex is our Director of Operations, assisting with the back-end processes for our clients and helping to make sure our team is organized and running smoothly. Alex has worked for the Cathey family for years, starting as a nanny for Stephanie's kids while also taking care of her own. Stephanie quickly noticed Alex's kind nature, ability to problem solve, patience, and organizational skills. Alex is now serving the team full time.
In the years they have known each other, The Cathey Team has doubled their business in volume, and those same organizational skills and her friendly personality made her the perfect Director of Operations for The Cathey Team.
Alex is now licensed to sell real estate to expand on the ways she can help the team succeed.
The Cathey Team’s customers love chatting with Alex, and she can make everyone feel special, feel heard, and always makes every customer feel like our only customer – something we pride ourselves in!
Leah was born and raised in a small town in West Virginia and is a mother of three strong, kind loving children. Her and her family moved to Port Orange in 2001 looking for better opportunities. Shortly after arrival, she found her niche in childcare which gave her the ability to spend every day with her children, as well as care for those with working parents. After more than 12 years in childcare, she was ready to make a change looking to provide a better future for herself and her children. Stephanie Cathey learned that Leah was leaving her position at the childcare facility, and offered her a position on her real estate team - The Cathey Team at RE/MAX Signature as an Administrative Specialist. Leah is currently in school to get her real estate license, and helps with the behind-the-scenes operations and help to make sure our ship is sailing smoothly. Our team knows they can rely on Leah to get things handled as needed, so they can focus on being out on the field.
