"Cathy and Rom are an amazing team to work with. After leaving our last realtor who didn’t do much we went with Cathy and Rom and what a difference that made! Truly professional and very effective. Cathy is always on top of her game and made sure any house we went to, it was thoroughly look at. We were first time home buyers but with Cathy and Rom by our side we knew we were in good hands, and felt like pro veterans at the housing game. To further prove how efficient and good they are we closed on our house in less than 30 days! They held our hands in every aspect of the process and we would recommend them to anyone and everyone." - Bart K
"I highly recommend Rom and his wife if you want a peaceful and smooth real estate transaction .Rom and his wife helped me with renting out a property which was approximately 2 hrs driving distance from where i live. He practically took care of everything starting from walk through of the existing tenant vacating to new tenant moving in and walk through. He helped me with all the needed township as well as association documentation. He knows almost all the rules and laws of the NJ townships and boroughs when it comes to renting /selling is my understanding. Thank you Rom and Cathy." - Hima V
"We can't tell you enough what an unbelievable realtor you are as well as a lovely lady. Thank you so much for all your efforts." - Rich C
"It is with great pleasure that my husband and I recommend Cathy Chaudemanche to anyone requiring a top notch Realtor. We absolutely had no reservations in entrusting Cathy to act as our seller’s agent and to list the sale our home at 9 Julie Dr. in Edison N.J. [ ]. We were very impressed by Cathy’s professionalism, her commitment, and diligence. She did a stellar job at marketing the property, providing advice and useful insights on pre-listing renovations and staging. We were very pleased with the virtual tour and the manner in which our home was listed, presented, and shown to prospective buyers. Cathy went above and beyond during the closing negotiations, which happen to fall right after Hurricane Sandy hit N.J. She was sensitive, courteous, and encouraging. Cathy clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In our particular case, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Cathy was there to provide reassurance and support. She made it happen!
Cathy’s local market knowledge is invaluable as are her relationships in the community. Cathy is a true professional and in a class by herself. I highly recommend her." -Jane G.
"I had a very pleasant experience with Cathy .
She has been very pro-active and had been tirelessly helping us in finding our home. Whenever, we had told her of our availability, she has always been prompt and had made sure she was available. Overall, she had had been very helpful to find us our right home." - Chandan K.
"This was our first home purchase. My wife and I were both extremely anxious throughout the process but Cathy was extremely professional, informative, and available for whatever questions we might’ve had. With a different offer already on the table for the house we wanted, she recommended a great offer that got the deal done. The entire process went very smooth and I would recommend her services to all my family and friends in the future. Thanks, Cathy!" - Brandon F.
"Cathy was the utmost professional and was a pleasure to work with when selling our home in Avenel. She was willing to do whatever it took through the entire process. Highly recommend her!" - Nina F.
"We found Cathy after having a terrible experience with our previous listing agent. There was a 180 degree difference in terms of communication, marketing expertise, and overall professionalism. She did an excellent job of presenting our property and following up with interested parties. After receiving no offers in 4 months when our townhouse was listed with the old agent -- we received an offer just $7K less than our list price -- within 1 month of signing on with Cathy..."
First-time home sellers shouldn't underestimate the importance of the listing agent in selling their property. We have no doubt that, had Cathy been our agent from the get-go, we'd have sold much more quickly and received a higher offer. She's knowledgeable about the real estate market and comfortable with using the Internet in conjunction with conventional marketing practices to feature your property. We've recommended Cathy to numerous people and wouldn't hesitate to use her services again." - Jyothi D.
"...[Cathy] it was a pleasure working with you and I sincerely appreciated all of your guidance and effort in selling my house..." - Lola K.

Do yourself a tremendous favor and go see Cathy when you're ready to make that big move!" - Eric S.
"It's my pleasure to meet Cathy. She helped us many times. At first when we needed to rent a home near JP Stevens High School. Secondly, when we needed to rent a single home. Cathy was so helpful also when we were trying to buy our own house. She was so caring, so helpful and so professional. Tons of thanks for everything." - Hala F.

The house i purchased wasn't even on my "to look at" list. She took a chance and showed it to me. I believe it was meant to be. I would refer anyone who asks to Cathy - she gives of her time without ever complaining. She went beyond the expectations of an agent. She truly is an angel, and I would always be thankful for everything she did." - Keval P.

She goes above and beyond to ensure transaction will close. For example, when we encountered a last minute COO inspection issue, she took the initiative to find a capable contractor to fix the problem immediately. One can hardly find any realtor who works harder than she does. I'm very happy that she represented me. I'll be glad to provide reference. Just let me know."- Jie Z.

She was always available to us whenever we needed to speak to her. Cathy is a super nice person, who is willing to go above and beyond to help out her clients.
