One Simple Goal!


As an instructor, my goal is simple: To create learning success stories, one student at a time.

Cathy has had a far-reaching career that includes over 25 years in the real estate industry, more than 10 years of teaching experience and is known as a subject matter expert in homeownership. She has authored more than 150 training manuals, met and trained more than 100,000 real estate professionals and has conducted more than 2,000 live classes since 2007. She averages 300 learning opportunities per year.

Because of Cathy’s background in real estate and mortgage lending alongside relationships with federal, state and local government agencies 

she is well-equipped to understanding the needs of her students and equally well prepared to offer hands-on, real world guidance that serve 

them well. She works hard to keep abreast of pertinent changes affecting homeownership and brings the most up-to-date information to class. 

Cathy received the 2018 Membership Director appointment from the Georgia Real Estate Educators Association for a two year term.  She 

proceeded as the Education Director for "Atlanta Training Campus" in Peachtree Corners, Georgia which just received the 2019 Best Training 

Campus  of 2019 from City of Norcross. Other accomplishments include the 2016 "Outstanding New Program Course" for her new training curriculum "Pre and Post Housing Counseling Specialist" and the 2008 "Educator of the Year" both from the Georgia Real Estate Educators Association.  During 2020, Cathy will serve as the Education Instructor for Virtual Properties Realty in Duluth, GA that is home to more than

3,200 real estate practitioners. She is a Certified Real Estate Course Instructor for South Carolina as well.

Classes with Cathy include, live and on-line courses, e-Books and audio books.  Her goal in 2020 is offering CE approved live "distant learning" courses along with Designations and Certifications tailored to Georgia's housing marketplace.
