Get to know Cathy Hoogeboom
I am originally from Michigan, but have been here in Fort Worth for 10 years. Texas turned out to be the place for me, although I do miss the Great Lakes terribly and visit when I can.
I got into sales very young, starting with selling Kirby vacumes in high school. Since then, like most sales people, I have sold products of all kinds. Most recently, I sold rhinestone products to a variety to national businesses. The accounts I landed led the company to grow from 2 employees, when I started, to 20. While lucrative, I didn't want to be a bling slinger forever.
I decided to get into real estate because I have a desire to help people find their dream home and dream lives. I have excellent communication and negotiation skills, partially due to all the years of sales experience. I also went to college, specializing in Literary Analyzation, so that helps me in neogating as well.
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my 4 kids and husband, cooking food of all kinds- I am mastering Thai food currently- , reading anything I can get my hands on, museums, art, music, craft beer, and trying to fix the damage I've done to my vegetable garden. This year my thumb went from green to black. My yard has turned into a place veggies go to die.
Years in direct sales have helped me develop not only a thick skin, but the ability to get the best deal and outcome- for both buyers and sellers. My years spent studying words and the English language have also given me the unique ability to pay extreme attention to the wording and phrasing that can make or break a deal.
