From ranchers and rodeo types, to farmers and politicians, I hail from a family steeped in the pioneer spirit and history that is Oregon! In sharing the entrepreneurial spirit of my family and their work ethic I practice the philosophy of work hard and play hard. When I am not engaged in the marketing and selling of homes in Redmond, Bend, Sisters, Prineville or Sunriver, I can usually be found outdoors, whether in the garden, hiking, snow skiing, kayaking or mountain biking. The beautiful and varied vistas of this high desert paradise, as well as its 300 plus days of sunshine a year, guarantee that being outside is always a good choice. Because there's sunshine even when it's cold you can hike, mountain bike, fish and in some areas golf, almost year round. And in the winter we offer, snow skiing/boarding, snow shoeing, and more! What are you waiting for? Come out and play!
I pride myself on my integrity, dedication, and enthusiasm. For high impact marketing, specialized services for both Buyers and Sellers, and overall expertise in the Real Estate Industry. There is no substitute for experience!
"Down to Earth Service... Out of this World Results!"
Think it's expensive to hire a professional? ....Wait until you hire an amateur!
I would rather hav 5 "raving fans" than 10 "just satisfied" customers! To that end, I think the business of Real Estate allows me to provide not only the service and skills required to facilitate a buyer or seller's property needs, but the ability to establish a relationship with each and every client to create a "WOW" experience. By utilizing a team of experts in the real estate field I strive to exceed the expectations of clients and co-brokers alike. I stay up-to-date in my profession and in my community to ensure I can meet this goal.

|Cat served as my buyer's agent when I bought a home in Central Oregon. She worked relentlessly for me and went above and beyond to get me into my new home. As someone buying on the lower end of price, I didn't expect more than the bare minimum, but Cat exceeded my expectations at every stage of the home-buying process. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Central Oregon.|

|We've used Cat to buy and then sell our home in Central Oregon. She's responsive, works for your best interest and gets the job done. Thanks Cat!|

|I recommend Cat Zwicker as a superb realtor—engage her to represent you with complete confidence! I recommend her both as her former client, and as a former realtor. After a few years’ experience--including with a national brokerage--I chose to affiliate with Desert Sky Real Estate until I retired. So, with “an insider’s” viewpoint, this I assure you. Cat’s real estate knowledge is both broad and deep, plus she has an uncanny gift to anticipate market trends both locally and nationally. DSRE office practices and records comply with all laws and regulations, and the highest industry standards. Her integrity in all aspects of a transaction is impeccable. Most important of all, she genuinely cares about each client and that client’s needs. During the recent real-estate collapse, many smaller local offices had to close. Desert Sky Real Estate prospered in spite of it, for the above reasons. In my sincere opinion, Cat Zwicker is the best! Sat, Jun 21, 2014|

|I would recommend Cat to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Central Oregon area. She has everything covered, lots of local knowledge, market conditions, and provides steady guidance throughout the process. Thanks Cat!|

|Cat is wonderful! She is extremely knowledgeable, proactive and efficient. She made the stressful process of buying and looking for a home easy. We absolutely recommend her and will use her for our next purchase/sell.|
|Cat was fantastic! She was always available any time we wanted to look at a house. She always responds to text, phone or emails quickly. We found her by chance online but are so glad that we did! I would recommend her to anyone. If you want someone who knows their stuff, go with Cat!|

|Cat is BRILLIANT as an agent. She had our house sold much faster than we ever thought it would. A big THANK YOU goes out to her, for helping us immensely. Such a great person to work with, who works extra hard for her clients.|
|Cat, you are the best! With all my heart I mean the best!! What realter walks you into a home and immediately tells you what she thinks is "wrong" with it? Either she's out of her mind or she's got integrity, loves what she does and loves the end result of all her hard work. Knowing she's the reason your eyes are twinkling because her satisfaction comes from knowing she helped lead you to the front steps of a home that truly fits you like a glove. You made my first home experience wonderful and I will always remember that. We were a team and I love you for taking me by the hand. You made it fun. I was naive, overwhelmed and didn't know what the heck I was doing, but you put me at ease, listened to me with both ears open. And believe me, I know I was a pain. Other Realtors kept trying to talk me into something while you kept talked me out of it. That, was the sign i was waiting for all along. Now, sixteen months later, the home we picked together is the home i couldn't live with out. Thank you, Cat. For everything!|
|I have known Cat for about 9+ years she is very professional and has a lot of knowledge in the real-estate business. The first day that I meet her I knew that any real estate deals that I ever would make would be with her. She has gone out of here way to make sure that I got what I wanted and needed. I feel that she always had my best interest in mind. I am not an investor and I don’t own a business I am like 90% of the population I go to work and come home. If it wasn't for cat doing what she dose best I wouldn't have my own home to go to. I have purchased and sold three homes with Cat each one of them was effortless on my part. Over the years I have come to know Cat as both a business professional and a friend.|
|Cat was extremely helpful and made the process of buying our first house easy. Her knowledge of the business and ability to work with us every step of the way was great. She is very personable and a pleasure to work with. She worked with our schedule and helped us find the perfect house. We will be continuing to use her help and knowledge with the local contractors to improve and maintain our house. We will recommend her to anyone we know looking to buy. Thanks for everything Cat.|
|We have known Cat for several years now and have always been impressed with her expertise and thoughtfulness as a business person as well as a person. When my husband and I needed a Realtor we decided to hire Cat, we knew she would follow through with anything that needed to be done and keep us informed of our progress. We were not disappointed, our home sold in one week at a price that was at the top of our area market! We would recommend highly recommend Cat!|

|We initiated a search for the home we purchased from 2000 miles away. We knew absolutely nothing about purchasing a HUD property and Cat could not have been more helpful in every aspect of the sale, start to finish. Cat is not your average agent and has gone way above and beyond the normal job description of a real estate agent. She is also extremely knowledgeable about home construction and building materials and we are not easily impressed. Even though we were closing on a property from 2000 miles away, we felt comfortable with it, because Cat was in our corner. She continues to assist us with referrals of local contractors and information about the area as we prepare to move in. I would highly recommend Cat to anyone for any real estate purchase. Thanks Cat from Shari and Dave!!|
|Purchasing a foreclosure home can be frustrating and very time consuming. Cat made the process much easier than I ever imagined it could be. She was very professional and was able to answer all my questions, refer me to good sources, and keep me moving forward! Thanks, Cat!|
|J & K Morris|
|Living 1,000 miles away from the property you are selling isn't easy! However, we were fortunate enough to find Cat. She took control and got our property cleaned, repaired, painted, carpeted, landscaped and SOLD! The nightmare we expected turned into a very positive experience.|
|My wife and I met Cat in 2005 when we decided to relocate to Central Oregon after traveling over 8 years full timing in a motor coach. Cat was extremely helpful in assisting us in finding the right location to build our house. In addition, Cat provided us with professional expertise throughout the complexity of acquiring a reputable lender, finding the right property that met our needs along with the right builder and house plans. During the process, Cat always had our best interests in the forefront as clients. Cat assisted us by providing invaluable suggestions and assistance while our house was in the planning and building stages. When we had several issues with the house construction Cat immediately assisted us in getting the issues resolved. Cat is honest, hard working and always puts her clients first. If in the future we need further real estate assistance, we would without question request Cat to represent us because she is one of the best Real Estate Agents in Central Oregon.|
|Not only did Cat help us find exactly what we were looking for, but she made sure the experience was hassle free. She helped us locate a lender, pointed out several areas the house needed attention to pass an inspection and even found an error in the paperwork that resulted in saving us thousands of dollars. A+...this lady knows what she's doing, and cares about the needs of her clients. Highly recommended.|
