Charming 4 bedroom home nestled…
Cathy’s philosophy about business is simple. Do the right thing, be honest, work extremely hard with your clients best interest at heart and the results will be win-win for everyone.
The road that led her to Real Estate includes a business degree from the University of Ottawa, several administrative jobs, a wonderfully rewarding period as a “stay at home” mom and a sales position at The Orleans Star Newspaper where she met James Locke and decided on the spot to get her Real Estate license. That was 17 busy and very successful years ago. One of the best decisions of her life!
Cathy loves dealing with first time home buyers because she feels such an obligation to make sure they make the wisest decisions possible. She treats them the way she would want someone treating her adult children.
She also has a real soft spot for seniors. People tell her she is very thorough but patient, never rushing them to make a decision if they aren’t ready. She gently guides them to make the perfect choices. “We often work with people on such a personal level as they are transitioning through life’s different stages and it is such a privilege to be part of that. My husband always marvels at the touching thank you notes and emails I often receive. It is so rewarding.” she states.
Cathy is a longtime parishioner at her church, Divine Infant Parish and is actively involved in her community. Volunteering at St. Brother Andre School is one of her favorite extracurricular activities. She has 3 grown children; Lisa, a grade one teacher, Sarah an executive with Sobey’s, and Kevin, a buyer for Giant Tiger in Ottawa. Peter, her husband is retired and is an avid fisherman and volunteer at the Perley Veteran’s Hospital.
Be sure to reach out to her if you are thinking of buying or selling.
Cathy Joyce at Locke Realty is an exceptional agent ! I was convinced that I was going to list with Com Free and reduce my cost of selling. I subsequently met with Cathy and decided to list with her instead. That was a very good decision. The value she provided was very evident from the start and I never looked back. She is a very knowledgeable agent and her many years of experience showed. She is a very honest and likeable person to deal with. In a very competitive profession where there is no shortage of agents willing to sell your house, Cathy is a breath of fresh air. I rate her service as outstanding. You won’t find better.–Craig Flewelling
A huge thank you to Cathy for guiding me in the sale of my home. Cathy was a pleasure to deal with and her wealth of experience was evident throughout the process. Cathy always responded quickly to any questions I had and her suggestions proved invaluable. I would highly recommend Cathy and the Locke team (Sam) for any real estate needs. Thanks again Cathy!–Laurie Mack

I would highly recommend Cathy as your agent of choice to buy or sell a home. She made the experience stress free, and never tired of my endless questions. Her industry knowledge adds value as did her recommendations to stage the home. Thanks Cathy and Team Locke. This was my 3rd time using their services and I look forward to the next time, let’s just hope it’s 10 years from now.— Judy Grisold
