We can't thank you enough for being there for us every step of the way!
Terry and I have lived in the Richmond, Virginia area the majority of our lives and desperately needed a change. For the past 5 years we've been searching for the right place to retire to. We fell in love with Crossville, Tennessee the first time we visited in early April 2014. We were drawn to Crossville because it offers everything we have dreamed of including friendly, intelligent & warm people...a great climate with four seasons... affordable, quality ranch-style homes with basements and acreage... low property tax rates...zero state income tax...zero tax on trucks, cars, motorhomes, cargo trailers, and motorcycles... skilled contractors... spectacular topography and scenery on a lovely Plateau...nearby mountains and lakes...great state parks...terrific banks and insurance agencies...shopping...top-notch medical services and a central location. We needed an experienced, knowledgeable real estate professional to assist us because it was a huge leap of faith making a commitment to move to another state where we knew no one. In early May, 2014 we interviewed Catherine Munkelwitz on the telephone and knew she was perfect for the job. Catherine was always readily available to answer questions via telephone and email, and responded quickly to our requests. She educated us on several areas in Crossville. Within days of getting to know Catherine, we decided to travel the 500 miles one way to look at several properties. We fell in love with the first house she showed us which just happened to be one of her listings in her neighborhood. We signed the contract the same day we saw it...and our trust and confidence in Catherine rang true. She held our hand through the entire process. Catherine's connections with Crossville business professionals such as Jeannie Sidwell of Mortgage Investors Group, Ivy Hillis of Farm Bureau Insurance, and James Thompson, Esquire of First Crossville Title guaranteed a smooth and easy process from beginning to closing. God truly blessed us when He led us to Catherine, our Realtor, and double blessed us because we also gained a wonderful friend and neighbor.
God bless you, Catherine & Frank!

"Earlier this year I located a realtor by searching the internet for realtors in Crossville, Tennessee area. I corresponded about the property my mother was considering selling.
This realtor was considerate, accurate and professional in all her responses. She volunteered to check out the property, to walk it, and to get together with the other members of her office to come up with a market value.
She then e-mailed to me a figure that she thought the property was worth, a fair asking price. It turned out that this price was higher than any other realtors were willing to suggest, higher than our paid appraisal.
Several months passed and I corresponded with a relative in the area and e-mailing a realtor with a different realty. Yet when it came time to select a realtor, my mother chose Catherine Munkelwitz. The reason my mother gave was, "She was honest with us".
The property was on the market for less than an hour when we received our first call. There were initially two main interested parties and the negotiations were handled with class and professionialism.
The property sold for more than anyone suggested. Catherine Munkelwitz was instrumental in the process on both sides of the transaction.
I would recommend Catherine unreservedly to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Cumberland area.

"I wanted to write a note of thanks and appreciation for a job well done for Catherine Munkelwitz in selling our property. Catherine came out and met us on a Sunday afternoon to discuss selling our property. She stayed in touch with us and helped us negotiate with the buyer. We listed, sold and closed our property in less than four weeks. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

"During our quest to find "our spot" we felt that Tennessee would fit our needs. East to West, North to South, brochures and realtors. Then there was Catherine and Crossville. These two were a magnet drawing us back to them.
With her help we feel that we found that place and in near future will cement ourselves into the Crossville area and become goo stewards to our property. We can't thank her enough. How to describe her to you: Sensitive, considerate, understanding,thoughtful, encouraging, patient, pacifier, resourceful,knowledgeable, determined,persistent, professional, diplomatic, negotiator, diligent, steadfast. A remarkable person guided us. GOD Bless Her.
Thank you Dennis and Joy"

"Catherine! You beat me to it! I wanted to thank you for all your hard work (took a year) for the Parente's to close, You did a great job. Thanks again and if the opportunity arises, I would have no problem recommending you again or to use you myself.

"Catherine! It is I who thanks you for a job well done. (Atty for client)
"Jan and I would like to share our utmost satisfaction with the professional and personal way Catherine Munkelwitz handled the sale of our home. We felt total trust and confidence that she had our best interest at heart from the time she isted our home to the final sale and we had the "check" in the bank.
Our home was not an easy sale it had drawbacks, too much house for some, too much property for others and all this during the collapse of th housing market and financial institutions.
After our first deal fell through,it was Catherine's dogged determination to pursue the reasons for failure. She refused to quit. Within weeks she had the original buyers back to the table with the original agreement of sale intact.The buyers, realtor and perhaps Jan and I had basically given up.
Why did we choose catherine after our first realtor failed us? Catherine gave us an honest and truthful analysis of what our home was would sell for, no unrealistic high figure. It also helped that she is a practicing Catholic Christian and sat across from us in church.
So satisfied were we that we recommended Catherine to another parihioner and she sold her house before we closed on ours.
Catherine will always be our friend and has earned our respect.
Ron and Jan"
